B. II. BIEDER.
The Election takes place on the first Tuesday
THE VICE PRESIDENCY.
We return to the discussion of tbe
cbject of tbe nomination of a Republi
can candidate for the Vice Presidency,
holding it to be a matter wherein the
State Convention which will meet here
in a little less than a fortnight, should
take well weighed, judicious action.
The main question to be considered is :
'low to add weight and popularity to
the ticket which is to be headed by Gen
eral Grant. His neighbors and constit
uents are naturally disposed to confer
the honor upon Senator Xye ; and, as
we hare before expressed it. the Sena
tor's nomination would be an entirely
Siting one and one which would add to
the strength of the ticket upon the Pa
cific Coast. But it is hardly probable
that the contest in convention will ever
narrow down to such a point as to make
a compromise upon one of tbe weaker
candidates necessary to an adjustment
cf the matter; and unless such a con
tingency does occnr Nye's chances for
securing tbe nomination are not to be
accounted as strong. Tbe struggle as
presented to us by tbe Cistern press
seems to be between the supporters of
Cotfax in the Western States, and the
supporters of Fenton in tbe Eastern
States. Grant will be nominated from
Illinois ; and by a constitutional pro
vision it is not admissible to nominate
a candidate for the Vice Presidency
frem the same State that the Presiden
tial rjomiuc-e is accredited to. We do
cot mean to gay that the Constitution
prescribes the manner of nomination,
but it sets forth that h President aud
Vice President shall be f.-oa different
States. Were the spirit of that pro
vision to prevail, the two offices would
el way 3 be filled by residents of sec
tions far removed from one another,
so that as wide a diversity of interests
as possible might be represented by the
iueumbents of the tiro offices.
The New York delegation, with an
vailed voice, will present the nr. me cf
INaben E. Fenton j and it is reasonable
to suppose that in the event of an " ir
repressible conflict" between the sea-'
board States and tbe States lying west
of tbe Alleghanies, Fenton would be the
roost likely of any man name! to get
tbe support of tbe Eastern delegations ;
and if the fight should come to a direct
isse of this sort tbe West presenting
Colfax cr Wade Fenton would be al
most certain of winning the prize. In
this straggle, the Pacific States could
with propriety stand neutral, save in so
far as their voice should be beard in
babalf of the welfare of the party itself.
New i'ork has thirly-thrce votes in
the Electoral College. Caused by the
immense Democratii vote in the City,
Fenton's majority over Hoffman in 1866
was 13,?89. These figures are favora
ble to the opinion entertained by the
Tribune and other good authorities, that
with Fenton's name upon the ticket
with Grant, New York could be confi
dently counted upon as giving a Repub
lican majority in November.
Now while Nw York has to be placed
among the doubtful States in our sum
ming up of the chances, and whereas
Ohio, Indiana and Illinois are almost
certain to give Grant overwhelming
mnjorities, it seems to us that States
such as Nevada, that are free from any
local preferences in the matter, and
which have no interest in it except doing
the best possible service to the party,
had belter be arrayed upon the side
which promises the greatest benefits to
tue cause and, viewed by tl.e present
lights, that side would seem to be the
one upon which Fenton stands. Far be
it from us to advocate any truckling
" polity;'' but when a profitable friend
ship can be honorably made it is folly
not to secure it. Nevada has more to
expect from New York capital and New
York influence than any other State or
section in the Union. The three votes
to which this State is entitled iu the
National Convention might be so cut
as to dtcide the natter. But at any
rate, whatever influence the voice of
Nevada may have in deciding the
choice of the party for the Vice Presi
dential nominee, it would seem the part
of wisdom, in all respects, that as be
tween Fenton and ncy candidate from
the West, it should be heard in favor of
the former. We hope tbe State Conven
tion may icstruct the National Delegates
to pursue this course.
From the Virginia Enterprise of yesterday.
Chicago, March 22. A Republican spe
cial says, that great interest is felt over the
proceedings cf the impeachment trial to
morrow. It is believed that the President's
counsel will ask for further delay which will
not be granted. The House managers will
have their replication ready to be presented
on Tuesday, and so proceed with the trial on
Wednesday. The impression gains ground
that after using all dilatory measures pos
sible, and when tbe Senate refuses to grant
further delay, the President will tender his
resignation, claiming that he cannot have a
Washington-, March 23. The Senate at
halfpast 12, resolved itself into a Court of
After the organization of the Senate as a
Court of Impeachment, Davis submitted a
resolution to suspend the trial till all the
Slates were represented, which was lost
Davis and McCreery only voting in its favor.
Mr. Stanberry stated that himself and his
brother counsel had been engaged every hour
since the Court last met preparing an an
swer, and regretted that longer time had not
been granted ; but submitted the answer
which they had prepared.
Judge Curtis read the answer to the first
Article. The respondent quotes the original
Act establishing the office cf Secretary of
War. The answer avers that Stanton was
appointed by President Lincoln and not by
him (Johnson). After the President be
came satisfied that the said Stanton was
doing the public service a great injury he
removed him, under the Constitution. He
denies that Stanton, when he removed him,
was in legal possession of tfie War Office ;
denies that he ever contemplated action con
trary to the laws ; denies that this act of
removing Stanton constitutes a high crime
or misdemeanor in office. The remainder
of the answer to the first Article consists of
along legal argument agiinst the Tenure
are insufficient. For answer to the eighth
Article le deniea all intention of violence,
and says he simply wanted to get the matter
before the Courts. In answer to the ninth
Article he proceeds to detail an interview
between himself and General Emory ; de
nies having ordered General Emory or any
other officer to violate or disobey any rule
for the regulation of the army; he denies
having said or done anything at any inter
view with General Emory that can be con
structed as a misdemeanor.
Mr. Evarts proceeded to read the answer
tnthetenth Article. It starts out with an
allusion to the Philadelphia Johnson Con
vention. The President goes on to say that
the Convention adopted a declaration of
principles, and appointed a delegation to
wait upon the President and present the
said declaration. He gives in detail the
interview which took place in the White
House, between himself and the delegation.
He says that his speech on that occasion
was incorrectly reported, and that the ex
tracts quoted in rhe articles in question, by
the House of llopreseutativcs, are not parts
of his speech. He makes some statements
in regard to his Cleveland speech also, and
denies the correctness of the passages quo
ted in the article from bis stump speech
In further answer to this article, he protests
that he has not been unmindful of the duties
of his office. He denies having endeavored
to bring Congress into contempt, and as
serts that during his official career he always
acknowledged the authoritv and lesialitv of
Congress. He claims that all his speeches
were delivered in the exercise of his rights
as an American citizen, for which he cannot
be questioned. In answer to Article eleven
he denies that in a public speech in Washing
ton he said that " Congress was not a lawful
Congress, and would not be until the South
ern States were represented," and insists on
being permitted the use of his freedom of
speech and opinion.
At 3 P. M. the reading of the answers w as
concluded. The document makes about five
Soutwell, from the Managers, requested
that the Managers be allowed a copy of tbe
President's answer, and said the IJoard will
be ready with its replication at 1 o'clock to
After consultation with the House Mana
gers, Evarts then rose and said that if the
Court would allow he would request tint the
President be allowed thirty days in which to
prepare for trial.
Senator Howard moved that it lie on the
table until after the Managers filed their
Bingham said the Managers were ready to
argue the question now, whereupon Howard
withdrew his motion.
General Logan, of the Managers, then
argued against the motion.
Evarts fellowed, and argued at length in
favor of the length of time.
Wilson of Massachusetts argued against
granting th motion .
Stanbery closed the argument with strong
appeals for further time.
New York, March 22. The Herald pub
lishes two communications signed by Wm
Magan on behalf of a company of cotton
bondholders, dated at London, and arguing
against the violent act of intervention on the j
part of the Vnittd States between the South
trn States lately in rebellion and their bond
holders, thereby compelling the former to
repudiate the loans made in favor of tlie Con
federate Government, and saying that the
credit of the Southern States is utterly an
nihilated by this act of forced repudiation
and that they will not be able to borrow a
shilling in Europe until they are allowed to
pay this debt, lie urges that if this were
done the credit of the North and South would
stand much higher in Europe and five-twenties
would rule much higher. lie justifies
European capitalists in making those loans
and argues that what may one day be sauce
for the goose who lent the South money on
their bonds may on another become sauce to
the gander that lent the North money under
the ideathstthev would be repaid the princi
pal and interest "in gold, for aiding to crush

Stanberry then took Curtis place and read
the answer to the second Article. He denies
all ckurges in this article. At the time he
issued the order appointing Lorenzo Thomas
there was a vacancy in the War Office.
For answer to the third Article, the res
pondent denies that he made any appoint
ment to the War Office, but simply author
ized General Thomas to act ad interim. For
answer to fourth Article he denies having
conspired with General Thomas or any other
person to prevent Stanton from holding the
oSce of Secretary of War. He further de
nies having authorized any force to be used
in removing Stanton. He dwells on this at
length and excepts to ell the cllcgatior.s
made. For answer to the Cfih Article the
respondent denies having hindered the exe
cution of the Tenure of Office Act either in
the State becomes the subject of a very city of V ashuigton or elsewhere. As in
reply to the fourth Article, he denies the
j urr.eicncy of tlie charges . In answer to

Crete relate that a massacre was committed
near the end of January of upward of GJ
Christians by the Turks, in the Fortress

gave a cordial welcome to their chief. The
Cretans still maintain their independence.
The ministerial crisis at Athens has re
sulted in the withdrawal of Movantini and

to the people which characterizes the forth
