OFFICIAL FAPBIt OF THE CITY.
The Storm at Washington.
Notwithstanding the telegraphic
dispatches sound the tocsin ot' alarm,
and may have unsettled sortie weak
nerves, it is so apparent that the thing
is a scare that it is hardly worth while
to seriously reflect on the matter.
Johnson undertook to remove Stan
ton, and gave evidence of ills deter
mination to do so, or test the powers
of the President before the Supreme
Court, and have ills rights in tile
matter of the removal of a member of
hie Cabinet, tleiinitely adjudicated
upon. But tile extremists of the
House are uts much afraid of tile Su
preme Court tut they are of Andrew
Johnson ; and there needs must lie
something done. Thad. Stevens has
lived for the past year for no other ob
ject but to have the pleasure of prefer
ing articles of impeachment against
the President. Whatever ilia admir
ers may say in his favor, don't con
tradict the charge that he is a malig
nant old man, and hates the Presi
dent with all Ids strength, Johnson'
is far from being immaculate ; but his
struggle to retain the Executive De
partment of tlie ‘Government intact,
and not permit the legislative depart
inent to encroach on it, by curtailing
its powers is a wise course to maintain
and defend. This Government is di
vided into three departments, tile
Legislative, Executive and Judicial,
each co-ordinate witli tile other This
is the theory of our Eederal existence;
but if the lowest branch of the Gov
ernment can regulate the other two
and curtail their powers, then it is
goodby to all safeguards to republican
liberty. We will certainly drift into
a pure democracy or despotism.
National Democratic Conven
tion.
This body met at Washington on
Friday last to decide when and where
the next National Democratic Con
vention shall be held. The prospects
arc in favor of Chicago being named
the place ; but the report is that Phil
adelphia, Cincinnati ami St. Louis are
each sure to be or cursed, as
the case may be, with th* convention.
Wells, Fargo & Co., and the
Mails.
Considerable of an outcry was made
against this corporation last winter
and the past summer for neglect in
carrying the mails, by the people of
Utah, Montana, Idaho, Arizona and
Nevada. The charges then made are
now about to be inquired into, if re
liance is to be placed on the following
telegraphic dispatch, which we find
in the Omaha Republican of the 22d :
A Tribune’s special says prominent
democrats are urging the President to
appoint General Halleck in place of
General Sherman as commander of
the division of the Atlantic. The
same dispatch states that the postal
department is determined to investi
gate everything relating to the over
land mail contracts, and the truth of
all the allegations that Wells, Fargo
ACo., have been carrying their own
private mails to the detriment of the
public service, and selling their own
stamps to people of the territories in
stead of government stamps.
The western members are very ur
gent in the matter and are resolved
that the investigation shall not be
smothered or lobbied.”
Bully! We say, investigate.!
Dale City Correspondence.
The following communication was
received a couple of days ago, but
owing to tlie press of other matter,
was excluded from our columns until
to-day:
Dale City, Fob. 23, IkGH.
Editor Leader: The much-talked
of Hardy-Delano mill came oil' to
day, Hardy losing by a foul, in fifty
seven rounds, one hour and three
minutes. The corral was built Just
out tiie city limits, and was commo
dious, and would (iave been comforta
ble had it not been for the wind whicli
kept tlie sand and dust blowing about,
regardless of eyes “or any other man.”
The boys steppetl into the ring at two
p. m, Delano's corner southeast.
Hardy seemed, and was, in best con
dition, ami on stripping gained an ap
plause, while oven -Delanos bnckeis
seemed to losenll confidence. Hets of
two to one on Hardy were freely of
fered. ami no takers. The fight then
commenced, Hardy and fmekers very
confident ; Delano's friends just the
contrrtry. Delano strove to make a
scientific knock-down fight ; but
Hardy, after getting a knock-down,
in tne fifth round, would rush in and
clinch, invariably throwing Delano,
who. finding that Hardy was the
most expert wrestler, mid would tight
no other wav, he would allow llanly
to take a loving twist on his neck with
left, lie holding Hardy s right with
his left, and pummelling his ribs, i
until he, H., suceeded in releasing ;
his right, when Delano would imme
diately drop. Not much hard fight
ing was done until the thirty-seventh
round, when there were four give-and
take blows, Delano putting two on
the ribs, and two in the face, and
receiving one on the.ribs, and three
on the crown of his head. Although
going down almost every round,
Delano certainly had the best of the
fight all the way through. Hardy
was several times warned, by the ref
eree, against striking Delano when
down ; but in the fifty-seventh he
: struck a straight “rib roaster,” while
; Delano was on both knees, and
the referee gave fight to Delano.
| Neither man was much hurt, but to
; all appearances Hardy was much the '
worst punished.
• ‘Thusd>uie City has gleaned a few
dollars from Chcyennee sports.
Hardy and his friends don’t want to
give up the money ; but that follows
as a natural consequence in all such
affairs. I understand that Jimmy i
Reed has challenged Delano, Jo fight
for five hundred dollars a in
three weeks, and that it was accepted.
Feburary 22nd, the anniversary of
Washington’s birthday, went off very
quietly, ending last evening in an
“ Anniversary Ball,” given by Mr.
Louis J. Ruth. Quite a number were
present, and until quite a late hour
merry feet kept time to pleasing niu
sic, and all went merry as a ‘ marriage
bell” until 12, p. in., when supper was
announced, and we adjourned to Mr.
James Watson’s to find a magnificent |
repast awaiting us ; one that even ,
< hicago could not have been ashamed
of. To describe it were useless, but I
we can conscientiously advise all i
those* who are feeling in want of a 1
good meal, to stop with Watson, and j
confidentially will tell you, if we can
get the “stamps,” we’ll stop with him
ourselves. Yours,
DaJaE City.

Reported Expressly for the Daily Leader.
Berlin, Feb. 25.—The report that
the treaty between the United States
and the North German Confederation
in relation to the rights and privileges
of naturalized American citizens of
German birth, of whom military ser
vice herctqfore has been claimed, has
been finally signed, is premature, de
tails, however, fully agreed upon and
it is expected the document will be
officially signed on Saturday.
Washington, Feb. 25.—Senate-
Sum ner read a number of dispatches
sent in March. 1861, one sent by Min
ister Harvey to Governor Magrath,
informing him of the intended action
of the Administration relative to Fort
Su niter, and obtained from the Secre
tary of War.
Chandler presented a communica
tion from the Governor of Michigan,
which he proceeded to read, and which
expresses the hope that the Senate
Will not falter in executing the law
against the Executive as well as
against all who sympathize with trea
son.
Hendricks interrupted by inquiring
by what authority was that document
before the Senate.
Several Senators spoke in regard to
it, but finally the chair put the ques
tion on reception paper and the Sen
ate refused to receive it.
After some other business, and
while Davis was speaking, Represen
, tatives Stevens and Bingham appeared
at the door, and a number of mem
bers of the House who accompanied
them to witness the proceedings.
Doolittle announced a Committee
from the House of Repretentatives
who were recognized by the presiding
officer.
Stevens then said : In obedience to
an order of the House of Representa
tives, we appear before you in the
name of the House of Representatives
and of all the people of the United
.States, we do impeach Andrew John
son, President of the United Sates, of
high crimes and misdemeanors in
office, and we further Inform the Sen- I
ate, that the House of Representatives
will in due time exhibit articles
against him, and makegood the same,
and in their name we demand that j
the Senate take order for the appear
ance of Andrew Johnson to answer
said impeachment.
Presiding officer Wade replied that
the Senate would take action In the
premises.
Howard desired to offer a resolution
• in connection with the matter.
Davis objected, and wished to con
tinue his remarks;
Howard said the Senator was out of
order, as this was a privileged ques
tion and of prior consideration.
Davis maintained that no question
could interfere for consideration while
he occupied the floor, unless he choose
to do so out of courtesy, give way.
Howard said the subject and matter
of this question was of great import
ance and demands more immediate
attention than the matter which the
Senator from Kentucky was discuss
-1 l'g.
Davis rather excitedly, said he was
i entitled to the floor and would hold it,
; and no gentleman had any claim to
address the Senate while he was speak
ing of the bill under discussion.
Edmunds said he admitted the right
of the Senator from Kentucky to hold
the floor, but questioned the propriety
and delicacy of his asserting his right
under the present circumstance.
Davis said that if the Senate decided
he was not entitled to the floor, he
should give way ; hut if they decided
otherwise, he should exercise the
privilege of waiving his claim or not,
as he saw fit.
The Chair put the question to the
■ Senate, and it was decided that
Davis had the right.
Davis said as the question was now
settled he wouhl give waY to Howard.
Howard offered the following:
Resolved. That the message' from
! the House relating to the impeneb
; ment of Andrew Johnson, be referred
to a select Committee of seven to con
sider and repdrtpon same".
Bayard said the Senate had no con
stitutional jurisdiction to appoint a
select Committee for this case, and
contended that, it could only resolve
itself into high court for impeach
ment, the Chief Justice of the Su
preme Court presiding. They had ito
right, he maintained, to anticipate
the trial of the ease of impeachment
'by reporting the message from the
; House. . - -
I Resolution adopted.
( Patterson next took the floor and
made a long speech on reconstruction.
At twenty minutes to 2 o’clock the
door-keeper announced the presence
of Stevens and Bingham, who report
ed that they had Impeached Andrew
Johnson at the bar of the Senate, and
that the Senate would take action
thereupon.
The regular business was then pro
ceeded with.
Allison offered a resolution declar
ing as saoso- of the House, the
right to regulate cfilties oti importa
tions belongs to the legislative power
of Congress. Adopted.
Wilson offered a resolution declaring
that the public welfare demands re
trenchment, and directing that the
eommiteeoii Pacific RailiWd report
u<» bill granting aid to any xaiiroad.
Resolution went over.
The Speaker presented the constitu
tion of the Stale of Alabama, as adopt
ed by the Convention at Montgomery.
Refem <1 to Reconstruction commit
tee.
Butler reported a bill making appro
priation for the expenses of the Indian
department.
It was made a special order for to
morrow.
Washhurne, from the committee on
Rules, reported a new rule declaring
that, pending a motion to suspend the
rules, only one motion be entertained
that the House now adjourn, When
the result thereof is announced, the
House shall not entertain any other
dilatory motion until a vote be taken
on suspension. This is intended to
prevent filibustering by the minority,
who exhausted one third of the day,
when the suspension of the ruler were
in order.
The new rule was adopted.
Washburne then offered a resolution
which was adopted, that when the
committee report on the articles of
impeachment, the House shall imme
diately resolve itself into a Committee
of the Whole thereon ; the speeches
to be limited to fifteen minutes each,
and said debate shall continue till the
next legislative day, to the exclusion
of all other business. At 6 p. in. of
the second day the fifteen minute de
bate shall cease.
The committee then proceeded to
consider the amendments under the
five minute rule ; but no merely pro
forma amendment could be entertain
ed al 4p. in. of the second day. The

which shall immediately 1 and without
