ADVEBTISE. We publish, for the information of the public, the bill Sled by R. C. Brinkley, in the Arkansas courts, against Mr. Mahan, and will give to-morrow, if furnished, the answer of the defendants. The paper printed possesses a peculiar interest for every one whose fortunes are identified with those of Memphis, of Arkansas and Tennessee. A correspondent of a Western paper is renewing -ome of the cor ruption rumors which prevailed pend ing the trial of ANDREW JOHNSON, and giving a catalogue of intrigues which were then the supposed pre vailing business of the capital. In all this the oppressors, and slanderers, and crruptionistg seem to have got the wor-t o! it, while the object of their malignity e-caped especially un m thed. ihe escape of Andrew Ji.unsox from the impeachment trial w- a triumph any one of his seven votes a higher houor than the en dorsement or all the rest. The New ' j k Keening Pod thus refers to it. ih iiaiue-'; Gen. Butler, Cornelius Wei ocii. aiid other politicians, are DaMkMM with attempts to use UMtrjr, either to carry the removal ot tiie i'le-ident or to prevent it. But Ve c.uinol See, in this story, that ey had any effect. It is not flo ii, as even probable, that any tin i. "i's vote uiis bought, either for o; .igainst removal. But there is some reason to believe that a good deal of mouey was pocketed by lob-bvi-ts, bu handled certain corrup tion unds. Ihrti sume Senators, Fessenden, Grimes and Henderson, for instance, feeling bound to vote against the re n, own ijl the President, yet thought it prudeM to see him before the vote was taken, and get bis promise to conduct himself with propriety, ap pears to us not improbable. But even this -tory must be held in doubt until Mr. Griines returns to this country, and hag the opportunity to speak for hiiii- it and Mr. I"e-senden. It is a little odd that out of this whole impeachment scandal, Andrew Johnson nag so far come with clean hands: and that the person whose re putation has been most severely touched by the " revelations " made from time to time is Johnson's most bitter -re-utor, Gen. Butler, it is probably true, as Mr. Maynard, of! Tenin-seee, once told several of the i Congressmen most prominently con- j cerned in the impeachment You j made a blunder in charging Johnson j with corruption in money matters. 1 know him thoroughly; he is an un scrupulous and thoroughly bad and dai'gerous man, in my opinion; but be is not pecuniarily corrupt; and when you tried to prove him so, you attacked hie only strong poiat."

After the Commissioner is in ormed by these parties about when they can begin to furnish the public -vith the machines, a time will be set for the discontinuance of the use of ihe "ribbon machine," and the sub stitution of either of the above two, at the option of the purchasers, until i'urther orders. MEXICAN CLAIMS. Holders of claims against the Re public of Mexico that are entitled to !- presented and proved before the Mexican Commission mw sitting at IVmIiIiiiIiwi. and who have not pre sented the sami , are hereby notified ihat the time for such presentation and proof will expire on the 31st day tdmmwt next, unless zood cause for extension le shown to the satisfaction of the Commissioners.

There has been a closer observance of Christmas Day here than has been known lor many years. Public and private business has been totally sus pended, and, owing to the damp, drizzly weather, but few persons have appeared in the streets. The Catholic, Episcopal and Methodist churches were otK-n early in the day, but were not verv fullv attended, in fact, the exodusof people for the holidays has Deen so tart liiio wie iut optaio more deserted than it did before Con gress met. There were four arrivals "ii the Arlington and ten at Willard's ti-day and to-night, w hich best illus trates the number of strangers in town. The President remained at the White House all day, and pereiupto rilv refused to see any one but his iainilv and immediate relatives, wno made up the Presidential C hristnias dinner jiarty. hoar's case. The President, when informed of the action of the Senate upon Mr. Hoar's case, stated that he would lenve it to that gentleman to decide whether he would let it go to a vote or be withdrawn. Senator Thayer was at the hue House, and tiie iTesi- i dent asked him if he considered t'e actio on Mr. Hoar's case as a rejec tion? Mr. Thayer replied that it ' would not generally be so considered: but in this case it should be considered i as fatal. The President replied that h was sorry for the result, for Mr. i Hoar was a good man for the place. Mr. Sumner said to one of the South Bra Senators, who helped to defeat Hoar, "You have done a great wrong to your people, and you will find no I man who would ha mi served you with ton ability and honesty." The correspondent oi the New York j Herald says : The Senators who op-post-d his confimalion as Associate Justice will urge the President to re- owe him trom tne cabinet, mey think he ought to have the decency and self-respect to resign, inasmuch, they say, as the action of the Senate was intended as a rebuke to him. Gov. Bullock and many senators are pressing Judge Erskiue, of Georgia, 'or Associate Juatice of the Supreme Court. The Washington correspondent of the St. Louis Democrat says: "The death of Mr. Btantea has led some persons to think tint now Attorney General Hoar may be confirmed as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Their idea is to have some Southern man appointed to the va cancy in that circuit, and let Hoar have one of the Northern circuits. Talk with several Senators in opposi tion to Hoar leads to the conclusion that this project will not work. The feeling among politicians who haven't been able to get such favors as they wanted from him is very bitter, and they declare he shall never be con firmed. Pennsylvania, not 'over, will present another man for Grier's va cancy, probably Judge Strong, whom they were uoing to put into tne Cabi net if Hoar went out. VIRGIN! . In the case of Virginia it is not de nied that all tbe condition- precedent to the admission of the state have been complied with, and there is hardly a pretense upon which to base its continued exclusion from represen tation, except that the carpetbaggers tailed to secure the Legislature. The administration is committed bv its jKjsitive recommendation on the sub ject ; and the fact that the ironclad oath w as not intended to be applied was previously declare by the Presi dent in regard to Ixith Georgia and Virginia, by Mr. WUaoa of the Sen Bte and Messrs. Bout well, Karnswarth and Paine, in the case of Louisiana; j and, lastly, by Attorney-General Hoar, in the case of Virginia. But the bills introduced by Mr. Sumner in the Senate, and Mr. Whittemore in I the House, indicate a sharp opposi-, lion to tne admission ot tne State, despite these tleclartRions, as does also the course pursued by Gen. Butler. After committing him.-elf to the Vir- ; Kinia legislative committee, and by a DiH introduced in the House and re- , ferred to the Committee on Recon- i struction, favoring the admission ol the State, he declined to report the bill from the committee again, thus postponing the matter until after the j holidays. Having lieen so successful in illegally coercing Georgia, it re- I mains to be seen whether Butler will not join with Sumner in playing a; similar game with the Oid Douiinion. GEORGIA. There is authority for the statement that several Kepublic&n members of j Congress have declared that they would not have voted for the Georgia oiu na'i mey men Known and under- stood the facts in respect to Gov. Bul- lock, its presented in the letter of An gler, the State Auditor, read at the Clerk'- deskol the liole-e. I h. V -M'.nk of voting to repeal the law, but that theso declarations will be adhered to is uot probable. Theallejrcd outrages in Georgia are not verified by evi dence, and it is positively asserted that there has not bean a political murdtr in Georgia since im spring when Hutlers bill was before Con gress, and was then rejected under the counsels and influence of (Jen. Grant, as mentioned by Butler some davs As to the number of members of the Legislature disqualifie i under the XlVth Amendment, it has never been asserted by liullock that over five perouwcre thus incapacitated. So proof has been filed to show that any ot them were disqualified. Had such proof existed, (jov. Bulbx-k would doubtless have filed it. The leading colored nicmlier is the Rev. H. M. Turner, who was appointed by Grant to le Postmaster at Mae di.Ga , and was subsequently removed. Il is alleged that he has violated lliu laws in regard to the Cuited Slates cur rency. Many of the members of the Legislature have resigned, and Geor gians assert that most if not a.l of the Conservative members will resign, so aa to defeat a quorum. Accounts from Georgia represent a highly excited and indignant state of public feeling. The Hon. Joshua Hill, a Republican and a friend of Gen. Grant, is said to be specially incensed ai the course pursued hi regard to this matter by the Radical party in Congress. The eonv.-pondent of the New York Herald says: It appears that Bul lock, Thayer. Morten and Lawrence had a conference hMt night, and their object to-day was io lay the plan fixed upon before the Prudent and secure his approval of it. Senator Morton now began to unlbld this plnn, in which he was seconded by the other gentlemen present. Wren tjeorgia WM reconstructed the fust time It ap ears that she was artially relieved I Irom military power tuat is, to thy 1 same extent that South Carolina and i he other Southern States admitted to representation in Congress are re lieved. Georgia became part of the Department of the South instead of being a military district, as Virginia, Texas and Mississippi are, under the com mand of a department com mander, Gen. Terfy, and not a dis trict commander, such as Reynolds In Texas, Ames in Mississippi, or Canby in Virginia. Now it is proposed for the present to remit Georgia back to military rule, to take her out of the Department of the South and make a military district out of her, and to place a district commander over her. The object of this is to give the mili tary authorities absolute control dur ing the period of reconstruction, or uutil the State is fully admitted to representation in Congress. The dif ference between a department com mander and a district commander un der the reconstruction act is this : The former is subject to the civil authori ties, while the latter is absolute and has the civil authorities under him. Bullock, Morton, Thayer and Law rence are of opinion the adoption of this plan will materially aid in the reconstruction of Georgia, and at the same time be a thorough safeguard against anything like an outbreak, because the State will in effect be un der martial law, and the military au thorities will be in a position p bring the screws to bear at short notice. It is understood that the President re garded the project favorably." Another correspondent says: "The is no little comment m Jjemocrauc circles concerning the adroit manner tawhfcll Senator Carpenter, just in Qick f Ume on h53 morning la-st, after the passage of the Georgia bill, put an amendment to the title, which leaves the Georgia matter open to as much further tinkering by Con gress as they may desire, even should Georgia comply with the humiliating conditions imposed upon hor by its provisions. By striking out the word 'perfect' and substituting the wori 'promote' in its place, the Wisconsin .Seniitor simnlv means that If some uo- j litical contingency should arise in the future requiring further revolutionary proceedings by Congress in regard to Georgia, in order to maintain Radical supremacy in that State, there shall be an excuse for such further outrage in the fact that this bill does not pre sent any indication of its being the last act of the national Legislature concerning her. The animus of the act is transparent, ana when mny to the people must awaken shown their just Indignation and resent ment. FOR THE HOLIDAYS.
