KEPOETID IMPEACHMENT 07 PEES-
IDEST JOHNSOH!
It was reported on the streets last
evening that a dispatch had been re
ceired in Virginia City from Judge
Baldwin in San Francisco to the effect
that the President bad been impeached.
Uaj it prove to be true I
THE SITUATION
We have not seen Union men of all
hades so elated, in many a day, as they
were here yesterday npon receipt of th
news of the action of the Reconstrac
tion Committee. We take this as a fai
index of the feeling among loyalists
everywhere. Johnson's impeachment
is positively demanded by the earnest
millions who support Congress ; and
fretted, feverish condition of public a
fairs generally, ao Ie?s emphatically re
quires it. Johnson defied the power of
Congress and laughed at impeachment
until the country began to suspect that
be had reasons for his sense of security
Bat, at last, he has dared to push " My
Policy " beyond the bounds of even
Congressional forbearance ; and the
passage by the Reconstruction Commit'
tee of a resolution of impeachment
gives ns reason forbelieviog that before
this the House of Representatives has
concurred in the action of the Commit'
tee and that Johnson is already a sub
ject for trial at the bar of the Senate
The stern temper evinced by Congress
gives assurance that be will be eum-
marily suspended.
The prospect is promising, grand,
glorious ! It presents the representa'
lives of the loyal American people in the
noblest attitude possible to be assumed
proudly and courageously asserting,
in the face of 'he gravest difficulties,
and surrounded by perplexities and
obstructions tbe most alarming, the su
premacy and dignity of representative
government. A very few days will de
termine the opsbot of tbe imbroglio,
la it and by it is to be settled once and
forever wherein lies the ultimate power
- of this Nation. To doubt the result is
to doubt the capacity of the people for
self government.
Stanton stands to bis post where, day
and night during the darkest hours of
the war, be toiled with unceasing, reso
lute endeavor in tbe service of his be
loved country, lie will stay there, so
long as it is in the power of mortal man
to remain, unflinching. We may feel
euro of that. And Grant, that greatest
and best of soldiers, cooler grown with
the surging of tbe storm, comes quietly
milfog, like a brave, kind brother, to
let tbe sturdy Secretary knew that he
stands ready to lend him all needed as
sistance. Never did any man receive a
stronger assurance; never was better
backing promised.
It is said that Maryland promises the
President the assistance of her militia
The part she failed to take in the rebel
lion she would take now. Tbe loyal
Governors of twenty-two loyal States,
supported by the valiant thousands who
but await their proclamations to spring
to arms, tbey and the eight hundred
thousand men who are enrolled under
the leadership of Logan in the Grand
Army of tbe Republic stand as a warn
ing to " My Maryland," and tell her in
unmistakable terms to beware 1 The
rebellion has at length reached the
dread crisis.
braces a tract of some eleven thousand
acres, more or less. As at present held
it is of no earthly ose to anybody bot
wood pirates : as it might be disposed
of, it would be of vast benefit to our
Public School Fund. We have it npon
pretty clear authority that that land
if in the market, would bring from
five to ten dollars an acre. It is thickly
covered with very desirable descriptions
of timber, and is easily accessible
Now we respectfully suggest that our
idea could be carried out to a beneSciul
conclusion by the passage of aa Act tbe
terms of which should relinquish tbe
title of the Government to said lands,
revoke the order of reservation and per
mit our State authorities to enter tbem
immediately as a part of the public
lands granted to this State for school
purposes.
As we said in tbe outset, the Indians
are not in tbe least benefitted by this
reservation. There is no use to which
the timber of those lands will ever, in
all probability, be applied which any in
terest involving the comfort of tbe sav
ages requires. Wby keep it in its pres
ent shape then ? It is worth in cash
not less than fifty thousand dollars; its
actual value is probably a great deal
more. The General Government has
been particularly liberal in granting
this State lands which are not worth tL.f
surveying ; and tbe school land nas es
caped utter depletion by tbe defeat of a
bill which proposed to take the money
already on hand in that fund and apply
it toward making such surveys. If, as
we suggest, these lands could be reliev
ed of the order of reservation and dis
posed of for tbe betterment of our pub'
lie school fund we should experience the
blessings of a donation worth more than
the free gift of a million acres like those
of which we are now at liberty to sur
vey and sell just as fast as sage brush,
alkali and sand become marketable. We
do entreat our Senators and Representa
tive to take this matter into considera
tion and give it their earliest possible
attention.

TH2 INDIAN TIMBER RESESVATION
While Congress is fretting and fum

means to prevent him from doing any

there are !oaie private interests which
it is the doty of our Senators and Rpp

Events !
Chicago, February 22. Specials aj the
Senate adjourned after over a seven hours
executive session. The excitement at W ash-
ington is greater than at any time since the
assassination of Lincoln.
The Senate has passed, by a strict party
vote, a resolution declaring that the Presi-
ent had no authority for his course in the
removal of Stanton, and ordered copies of
the same to be sent to the President, Stanton
aad General L. Thomas.
After adjournment, a number of Senators
went to the War Office to consult wiih Stan
ton. 1 he latter avows his determination not
to leave the office. He remained there dur
ing the night, and had hia meals sent in. It
is generally believed that the Ileconstruction
Committee will immediately report in favor
of impeachment.
It is reported that Thomas says he will
seize tne omce by force, 11 necessary, but it
is not believed such a measure will be resort-
ed to. It is supposed the matter will be
brought before the Supreme Court on a writ
of quo tcirranto to 6e served on Stanton,
requiring him to make answer why he does
not deliver the War Oifice to General Tho
mas.
Latest Midnight Several Senators ap
peared before Chief Justice Carter, of the
District Court, and made affidavit charging
General 1 nomas with a violation of the 1 en
ure of Office law, and asking a warrant for
the arrest of Thomas, which will probably be
served in the morninir.
Chicago, Febraary 22. The Post's special
says Stanton has bexten the President at his
own game. Ibis morning, lien. Lorenzo
1 nomas was arrestea by Marshal uooding
for altemntinz to interfere with the duties of
secretary oi war, m Tiuiauuu ui me jeiiure
of Office Act, and was brought before Judge
Carter, of the Lrimm.il court, this morning.
tie waived an examination and was released
on bail of 5,000 to appear at 10 o'clock on
Mondav.
The Reconstruction Committee, at a meet
ing this forenoon, agreed to report articles of
impeachment against the 1 resident, io-day
there is intense excitement among tne mem
bers, and in the galleries, over the action of
the t resident.
The Journal of Commerce s special says
After the release, by Jud"e Carter, of Gen
Lorenzo Thomas, he went to the War office
and demanded possession, otanten ordered
him tj leave the office, threatening to put
him under military arrest; whereupon Thom
as went to the W hite House to consult with
the President.
Wasuington, February 22. It is report
ed here that the Maryland Legislature is
h lghly enraged at the rejection of Senator
Thomas. It is also said that they will re
quest Iteverdy Johnson to resign, and refuse
to allow the r eaerai tax to ue collected.
At a secret session of the Democratic Na-
tional Committee to-day, it was resolved to
hold the Democratic National Convention at
New York. July 4th.
There were present at Secretary Stanton's
office this morning Representatives More
head and Kelly of Pennsylvania, Vaa Horn
ana Van Wycke or ew York, Dodge ot
Iowa, Ames of Massachusetts, Freeman Clark
of New York, and ex-member of Congress
Columbus Delano of Ohio. About 11:30
A. M. General Lorenzo Thomas, having just
been released oa bait by Judge Carter, pre
sented himself at the door and told Stanton
he would like to see him. Stanton requested
him to nrocced with anything he had to say,
Thomas replied that he had come to dis
charge the duties of Secretary of War ad in
terim, having been ordered to ao so Dy me
President of the United States. Stanton re
plied that he should do no such thing, and
ordered him to his room to perform his du
ties as Adjutant General. 1 nomas replied
that be had been ordered by the f resident to
act as Secretary of War ad interim and he
intended to do it. Stanton again replied that
he should not, and again ordered him to bis
own room and denied the power of the Pres
ident to make any such order. Thomas said
he would not go, that be should obey the or
ders of the President, and not obey the or
ders of Stanton.
Stanton remarked : "As Secretary of War,
I order you to your place as Adjutant Gen
eral."
Thomas M I shall not do so."
Stanton " Then you may stay there as
long as you please, if the President orders
you ; but you cannot act as Secretary of
War."
Thomas " I shall act as Secretary of
War."
Thomas then withdrew into a room oppo
site, being the general scriveners' room.
Stanton immediately loiiowed mm. Alter
some further conversation, Stanton said
Then you claim to be here us becretirv of
ar, and refuse to obey my orders r
Ihomas "1 do, sir. 1 shall require the
mails for the W ar Department to be deliver
ed to me, and shall transact all the business
of the ar Department.
At this juncture General Lrrant and Am
came in. General Grant said playfullv to
Stanton and his friends : '' I am surprised to
find you here. I supposed yon would be at
my headquarters for protection."
the House has agreed to deter the -oteon
the impeachment resolution till Monday
evening, and to continue the debate up to
that time.
Chicago. February 23. The House sat ti"
past one o'clock this morning, and then took
a recess till Monday. No vote was taken, but
no doubt as to the result is believed to exist.
Every Republican will vote for impeachmen
except Stewart and Casey, neither of whom
were elected on the .Republican ticket
Specials state that after a long conversation
with Robert J. Walker, Thomas left the War
Office. It is reported that Walker's advice
was to remain passive and carry out all or
ders of the President, but await the action of
the Courts, and not forcibly eject btanton.
Grant took no part in the controversy be
tween Stanton and inoma.
After leaving the War Department
ihomas, in company with KobertJ. Walter,
went to Grant's headquarters and thence to
the White House, where he was admitted
without delay. Attorney General Stanbery,
Secretary Welles fend 11. J. Kennedy were
present at the interview. General Thomas
conversed at some length with the President
giving an account of his interview with Stan
ton. The President then withdrew to the
library with Stanbery, where a private con
sultation was had. In a short time the 1 res
ident appeared and wrote out some order,
which was borne away by Colonel Moore. It
was rumored that this was a peremptory order
to Stanton to withdraw forthwith from the
War Department.
has been considered a high crime and mis
demeanor. But I will not discuss this ques
tion unless gentlemen on the other side de
sire to do ao. If they do, I shall, for the
present, give way to them, and say what I
have to say in conclusion.
Brroks then took the floor and made a
lengthy speech against the resolution.
After the conclusion of Brooks' speech,
one was made by Spaulding, in support of
the resolution.
Bingham hoped to reach a vote this eve
ning. The Senate met immediately and adjourned
to Monday.
The statement that General Carl Schurz
is a commissioner on the part of the United
states to Europe is without foundation.
