Correspondence of Telegraph. COLUMBUS; April 1. Dear Ttltgrapk ; i V, , 1 Since my last correspondence a variety of incidents and accidents las well as bustaeas has- served to fill np the time- at the CafftaS. As the session draws fowariMt close-, there N a dtrposition to urge forward to com pletion, the private and local schemes and par ty measures to the exclusion of really Import ant matters, and ft has now become attrros? irrf posible to get a hearing on subjects of general interest and utility. The general appropriation bill has received no attention yet from the boose, and will not probably be considered in Commit tee of the whole, and consequently members will have to vote blindly on the , disposal of many tlxrAantfiJ of dollars of the state money. The six important bills, presented by the Spe cial Commission appointed by the Legislature last wiuter, and which amend and codify the laws of assessment, Pa-xudoli, foo., have passed out of sight, to return no more. The prospect for a change in the interest law grows less and less, while "visible admixture" bills, negro per secution schemes, &c, are all that receive at" tention, except, perhaps some partly matured plans to turn the city governments of our lnrge cities over to the democratic party. Ak "Yi3ibh admixture" bill hns passed the Seriate which is really an outrage upon the common sense and civilization of the Sge, and so abominable that even the most bigoted partisans of the' House will scarcely be willing to endorse it. This bill makes it unlawful for mulattocs to vote, and punishes with fine and imprisonment for voting; those Who have by the constitution ofOfllo, and the Supreme Court for many years been declared legal voters. It also infuctarffie'seyer est penalties on judges or eloctioa for"receiVing such votes and requires that all' persons sus pected of having tVe- slightest auniixture of African blood be challenged and required to state under onth the most minute: facts in regard to their pedigree for tMfbgfeacratSxrjs back, facts which not one white man in a hundred ; would be willhi. to ztcit to or could profe. The bill passed by the bou.c on Tuesday, was lc; obnoxious but discriminates m firof of rebels who have fought against the government and against the heretofore legal voter who may have a slight admixture of African blood, al though he may have fought and suffered to any extent for the union, and paid taxes' to'any amount Amendments prohibiting rebels from voting, were squarely voted down on both these laiquitoBs biHs. i Another bill has passed the housVwhich vir tually excludes all colored children from com mon schools. A bill has passed the Senate dis franchising students who have heretofore voted, where they attended school There was almost a fight in the House last Saturday between Capt. Crist, a gallant soldier of the late war, and Mr. Ball of Mu-kingum. Mr. Crist offeied a resolution in sport to appoint Mr. Bnll and others a committee to locate a penitentiary ex clusively for white convicts. Ball then cdled him a d d son of a b h and said he would rmash his face when he caught hiuj outside. Mr. Crist demanded his arrest, but no notice was taken of the deiunnd. , . As a sequel, there was a united attack by Ball and his Democratic friends, on all the measures inu nded for the benefit of Cincinnati, ai d all of them, which could be reached were, on Monday defeated. Votes were re-cot si.lered which passed a bill authorizing the -city to com plete a woik house, which U now half comple ted, also one to appoint a Fire MacuhaL, and one for constructing water works, alt furxjiite. A very humiliating spectacle was presented in the House Saturday morning, on this wise Mr. Thompson of Stark Co., an old man, who through some lingering regard for the right of humanity, refused to vote tor the billexc uding colored children from schools, and whose vote was recorded for it, by some mistake, aj called up by Dr. Scott of Warren, and asked to state how he voted, as the lack of his vote would de feat the measure.. He xaid he did not vote for it, and did not favor it, as he had repeatedly said before. A process of lampooning and whipping In, was then commenced by the DeuiocraUc lead ers, and he tiually was driven to admit that he did like it and voted for it. Po r old man, saia many crtnbers, why should an unscrupu lous party t'.iit'he had always served, sul ject him publicly,- to so great humiliatiou. Bills of local interest to Ashtabula Couuty have been presciJted, for authorizing the Couuty Commiss ioners to appoint a Uarber Master, for authori zing persons who hold money, subscribed for itHiiri!rBg. vol on leers in the war, to trausfer it to tue townsnip treasurer, and for the relief of Ed win Bailey, treasurer ot Morgan township. Heury Vincent, tha great E.iglL-h orator, gave three lectures in the second Presuyieriau Church, on tbe 25ih 26'n and 2Zth of March, and without exaggeration I many sav, thai he is a most eloquent and liberal minded man. He has but few equals. Wcudcll Phillips gave bis lecture on "the times,'' and with the exception of his bitter and nnreasonahle attack on Grant, his address was well received. Many cannot understand why he should abuse the best sol dier of the age, merely because people waut bim for President.

' The famine ex tends not to a single district, but over a territory iuhabited by two hundred thousand people. In one night last September one of those severe early frosts unknown in this latitude, swept away the entire crops of the year. It was of course too late to plant ' anew and the stricken people have eked the as far as possible the re-naindcr of out former year's supply, and aided by the wholly inadequate support of the Swed ish government, have dragged through a winter of wretchedness and suffering that no pen can portray.'

It had been determined by the Supreme Court to hear the arguments to-morrow on the motion cf Judge Black to precede with the consideration of the McArdle case. The subject came up in Court again this morning, when Mr. Carpenter said he could not be prepared so soon to argue the case on behalf of the Government. Judge Nelson therefore announced that the case would be postpone? trntrl the first day of next term. Judge Black was not in Court this morning. The next term of Court is held iu December next. Impeachment. Mr. Butler proceeded with the open ing speech on the part ot the Managers, he reviewed the impeachment cases iu oth er counties to show what were impeach able offences & which were acts subversive of some fundamental or essential princi ple of government or highly prejudicial to the public interest. This might con sist of a violation of the constitution, of law, of au official oath, or of duty by any act committed, or without positive viola tion 01 the law by the abuse of discre tionary power from improper motives, or for any improper purpose. Mr. Butler coucluded his argument as follows : Who does not know that from the hour the President besau his usurpations of power, he everywhere denounced Con gress, the legality and constitutionality ot its actions, and defied its legitimate powers, and for that purpose announced his intention, and carried out his purpose' as far as he was able, of removing every true mau from office. who sustained the Congress of the United States, and it is to carry out his plan of action that he claims the unlimited power of removal, for the illegal exerciseof which he stands before you this day ? Who does not know that iu pursuance of the same plan he used his veto power iudiscrimiua ely to prevent the passage of wholesome laws, enacted for the pacification- of the country; and when the laws were passed by the constitutional majority over . his vetoes, he made the most determined op position, both open and covert, to them and for the pnqxjso of making that op position effectual, be endeavored to array, aud did array, all the people lately in re bellion, to'.eet themselves against Con- n',.;.,.-l ' ...... .....11 1.1 inen, their neighbors, 'so that murders, assassinations", and imssacres were rifo all over the Southern btates, which be encouraged by his refusal to consent that li single murderer be .punished,- tkoujrh thousands of good men have Veen slain ; ana iunucr mat ne nuempieu uy a nm litary order to prevent 'the execution of acts of Congress by the" military- com manders who were charged . therewith. These and his concurrent acts show conclusively- that his- attempt to get the control of the military- ibrx-e'of the go v feruuieut, by'lhe seizure of the Depart ment of War, was dou in -pursuance of his general design, if-it were possible to overthrow thd CoiigressVof the United States, and he now claims by his own will for the execution of his every design ev ery officer of Army, Navy, Civil aud Di plomatic service of the United Stales, he asks vou here, Senators, by your solemn adjudication to confirm him in that right to invest him with that power to be used with the' iptents and for the purpose which he has &rre.fl'y.,shewd. ' The speech ot C-cn. Butler ' w as very.' lengthy, equal to two pages or more of this 'paper. Of its ability a correspon dent of the Leader says. , ' i The only matter which occupies general attention to-night in Butler's speei h. It is a subject of universal conversation, and its ability is admitted ou all sides. The Senate was filled, both on the floor and in the galleries, to hear it, and the attention given it by the Senators, and in fact by all, is almost unprecedented. The President's counsel, and especially Mr. Stanbery, seemed very uneasy under much of it. " The rapid succession of keen thrusts made were recognized by the whole House. The effect upon the mem bers is better shown by the action of the House on re timing to its chamber, when, by a vote of 80 to 20, the rules were sus pended, and, on motion of Mr. 1 Schenck, 40,000 copies ordered to be printed. Tuesday the Senate proceeded with the trial and the managers had taken considerable testimony, when the Chief justice ruled out certain questions, ob jected to by Mr. Stanbery. The managers anil a portiou of the Senators were startled by this assump tion on the part of the Chief Justice and Mr. Drake, of Mo., appealed from the decision. The Chief Justice said it was his duty so to rule. Seuator Drake remarked that there was nothing to give the Chief Justice that right. Seuator Johnson called Senator Drake to order, ou the ground that he could not debate the question. .The Chief Justice rose and said that he, as Chief Jnstice of the United States, was delegated by the constitution to pre side over the court of impeachment when the President of the United States was being tried, but -when so presiding he became president of the senate sitting as a high, court of . impeachment. When a point or evidence oi'a form of law came before the court iu first instance, the Chief Justice was the proper person to decide it, and then the Senate 011 its be ing submitted to hciu at the suggest iou of a member. Mr. Butler proceeded to quote from va rious cases of impeachment to show thai the presiding officer of an pnpeachmeut court had no right to decide questions of law or evidence. Mr. Butier complained that the managers of the House would be bound hand aud toot by this decision, and would be unable to get the object ions considered. . .. The Chief Justice theu stated the point raised for the decision of the Senate. Senator Drake objected to the ruling of the Chair: The Chief Justice called the Seuator to order. , Senator Cpukling called for the read ing of the seventh rule, aud it was read. Mr. Bingham maintained that the rule only authorized the Chair to submit ques tions to the Senate, when the yeas and nays could be called for by one-tiltli; aud that the constitution itself, iu saying that the Senate should have the sole power to try impeachment, settled the whole ques tions. He protested against the House being bound aud laid before the feet of any man, however high or pure he might be. If the precedent were established, we might some day have a Jeffries in the chair. We have had a Johusou in the White House, and may some time have 'a Jeffries iu the chair of the Chief Jus tice. The Chief Justice put tbe question, whether his decision should be sustained by the Senate. Seuator Sherman asked the managers wliat were the precedents bearing on the question, iu the trial of impeachmeut i this country. Mr. Boutwell said that tho Chief Jus tice did not preside as a member ot the tribunal, for to the Senate is given the sole power to try impeachment, which srave it a right to decide all incidental questions, as well a3 questions of the guilt or innocence, lie (Boutwell) did not object to the Chiet Justice giving his opinion of ruling, but it should be subject to tbe detisio-n ot the Senate. Mr. Bingham read au abstract of the authorities which he had collected, touch ing on tho question. Mr. Butler read from the report of the trial rf Judge Chase an instance when the presiding officer had put a question to the Senate for decision, without ex pressing his opiuion. Senator Wilson renewed his motion that the Senate retire for consultation. The vote was taken by yea? and nays, and it being a tie vote, the chief justice voted "aye," thus giving practical effect to the position assumed by him as to his right to vote. 1 The circumstance created some flutter on the floor and much aiumcmcut in the galleries. The Senate, headed by the Chief Jus tice, then, at about three o'clock, retired for consultation.
