Geo. W. Julian. We learn that Hancock County has ehoscn a Urge delegation of Julian men to the Congressional Convention. ' Hush and S'ulby Counties will prola bly give Julian from 10 to 20 votes in Convention. Impeachment. , The Senate tact for tho trial of impeach ment at 12 o'clock on Thursday, 9th inst. The Chief Justice inquired whether the Managers had any more evidence to in troduce? Mr. llutlor nail they bad, and cal'.ei W. Howard of Alabama, who tesli tied that the President refused to give him an oiUcc, unless he would support "my policy" and oppose Congress. Foster Jilodgett, cf Augusta, Ga., was called, end testified that he was Poitinaster of that city, but was removed by the Presi dent. Mr. Ilitlur stated that he would in troduce documentary evidence to show that the President had never communica ted the reaaona of Mr. IlloJctt'a removal to tho Senate. Judge Curti.1 then roso and began tho opening argument-for the President. He ipoke about three hours. Ilia main strenghth on Thumlay w de voted to showing that tho Tcnure-of-Ofiico luw did not apply to Mr. Stanton. " On Friday Mr. Curtis resumed his ar gument, speaking for about two hours, and dicusiog the articlea after the second quite briefly. After ho concluded, Gcncta) Lnrcnio Thomas was introduced as tho first witness for tho tiefende, who gave an account of his interviews with the Presi dent and Secretary Stanton, relative to pelting possession of tho War iHpurtrcent.

Senator Johnson, however, caused Mr. Sherman to be recalled, and himself put a similar ques tion, nblcb theSenato allowed the Gener al to answer.

A terrible disaster happened early on Thursday of last week, on Lake Michi gan. Tho Sea Bird, a fine steamer, vul uod at 970,000, was discovered to bo on firo about six o'clock in tho morning, aud in a few minutes tho flames were boyond control. Thcro wcro about one hundred persons, passengers and crew, on board, and of this number only two ore known to havo been savod. From tho statements of thoo who were rescued, and tho Cap tain of the Cordelia, tho boat which brought to Chicago the two survivors, it appears that the porter of the boat threw overboard, in tho early morning, some live coaln, and it is supposed that one of theso füll among some looso freight which was on tho deck. Tho alarm of firo was sounded h a hhort timo, but both passen gers and rrew appear to have been tu overcome by fright that they were unable to take any clliciont means to securo their safely. - Man Fatally Shot.

TL Indiana State Uoardof Agrioulture intend to expend $15,000 in fixing up Cuup Morton for a Fairground. Congressional. On Saturday, in the House, Mr. Wood Ward introduced a bill to test the consti tutionality of questionable acta of Con gress. Referred to the Judiciary Com mittee. The first section provides that whenever any act of Congress is vetoed by the President, on tho ground of un constitutionality of any of ite provisions, and shall afterward be enacted into law over the veto, it shall be lawful for the President to order the Attorney General to file in the Supreme Court a feigned issue, to test the constitutionality rf such parts cf the enactment as were specially objected to by him. Tha Speaker pre sented a letter from tho Justices of the Supreme Court, transmitting amendments of tbe rales in bankruptcy. Referred to the Committee on Revision of tho United States Laws. Mr. Coburn introduced a bill to provide for the payment of back pensionsy in cases where persona entitled had bcens infants, or insane; or without guardians, during the the time they were without guardians. Referred to the Com mittee on Pensions. Tbe House held quite a session on Monday, and there waa a long discussion alwutlhe resolution to print 40,000 copies of General Cutler's opening speech, which Mr. Eldridge wUhed to have amended, sff as to have-as many copies of Judge durtis speech printed. The Speaker ruled. the amendment out of otder, and b(i taking a. vote on the original rtsolu- lion, it appeared that no quorum was present. Dreadful Accident. A dreadful accident occurred in Chicago last Friday night at St. Mary's Cathedral, on the corner of Madison street aud Wa bath avenue. The Cathedral was dcnceW packed on the occasion of Good Friday services, when the alarm of firo suddeuly arose which created a panic in the Church and a resh to the door. The panic-stricken crowd trode upon one another after the usual manner of pcoplo ia such condition. Three women were killed outright, three others were fatally injured, aud a large number moro or Ices hurt. I . , Suicides. George ,W. George, a resident of Cin cinnati, committed suicide on Tuesday night, at the Rates Houc, Indianapolis, by shooting himself in tho head. His body was tot dmcovcrcd until coon next day. It appears from a letter addressed to bis eon, that ho had been resolving for a year and a half to commit tbe deed, but had dclajcd it fur various reasons, and was finally impelled to it by the failure of suocejs in a patent right that be was en deavoring to sell. A-ypung man ustued Georgo Noble, bro'ther of-General Lsri Noble, present Clerk of the Supreme Court of Indiana, committed tuicide on Monday, at Ccutrc v i 11 e, Indiana, by shooting bimtclf through tho k(ad. ' if . ' Impeachment Indorsed. The Washington correspondent of the Cincinnati Gatrtte says: The primary elections in those counties, where a voto wus taken for a candidate for Congress, were well attended, and the vole cast was usually large. These elections wcro not held to any considerable extent in any but the three districts now known as tho Fourth, Seventh and Ninth, repre sented respectively by Julian, Orth and Shanks, it Was kuown for some days bu for.a that theno gentlemen would, in all probability, be nominated, but it was sup posed by on ono thatlthe vote piven them would be so heavy. Tho Conventions sto yet to be held in all those districts, but there can bo no doubt as to the result of them. In tho canvars, thcye gentlemen havo been opposed by strong and popular men as candidates, but whiln each one has remained at his post in Washington and has taken activo no part in tbe can vas, tho voto for them has been overwhelming. Tho trutlris, the Republicans of Indiana are united upon the impeachment question, and they take this method of showing their appreciation of men who stand squarely ty the work required of them. The' Gaz-ite says editorially: Wayne County, lud , gave Julian a ma jority of 1,087 over all competitors, for the Congressional nomination, Tbe people of Indiana seem disposed to return their Congressmen who have proved ho faithful in the Fot tietli Congress to the principles upon which they were elected. The Nominating Election, Which came, off in the rcvcral townships of this county, on Monday, was diameter tied by less excitement than any ono held in Old Way ue for several years putt, whero Congressional candidates wero voted for. Wo heard of no harsh expressions or un kind feelings indulged, by friends of tho different candidates for Congress, at the poll of this township. Only a few, very I'sw Republicans hesitated about pledging thcmhclves to support tho nominee of the District Convention. It is plainly apparent to every one, that if any party shall at tempt to unite for the purposo of defeating a political foe, every individual member of it must consent to yield his personal preferences, in caoe ho happens to bo in the minority, and support the ehoico of tho majority, cr the rat ty might as well at ouce rofuso to go through the farce, of a nomination. Kvery man who bus taken part in the nomination, is bound, in honor, to hein eleot the nominee, and he who forfeits his implied pledge in this particular would not, in our judgment, be a safe man to trut iu other matters. f Richmond Tclcgatn. Kuklux in Indiana. A man named Watnscutf, formerly deputy Sheriff of Shelby County, was arrested for drunkennosa a low days aince, at Shelby ville, and on his person wes found a document issued by the Grand Official of thoKuKlux Klan, indicating that the bearer was a member, and that such au organlittlon was located some where ne-ir. This 'secret rebel organiaition is to take the place of the 1 Sons of Lib erty," a disloyal order, that operated . so injuriously against pur Government during the war. In tbo Soutb, it has been a terror to all loyal citizens, murdering, mal treating and threatening to such an extent that large numbers bave been compelled to flee for safety to other localities.- Rich mond Telegram. Republican Charleston Convention in Brookville. . iVr. Editor It would he folly to try to conceal or cover up the disgraceful scenes witnessed in Brookville last Satur day in what was called a Republican Con vention. Let us look the thing squarely in tho face, inquire the cause, and try to provide against a repetition of such doines in future. Tho Convention was called for the purpose of sending Delegates to tbe Diitrict Convention to be held in Con nersville 30th of this month to cast the vote of Franklin County for Representa tive in Congress, Judge of Common Pleas Court, and Prosecuting Attornoy. Early in the day signs of a little storm were vis ible. Some of ua from a distance did not fully understand it, but when the Con vention met we found two.hostile parties arrayed against each other, not upon any principle or measure, but upon men one wing occupying tbe North side of the bouse, the other tbe South side. The Convention was organized by elect ing Mujur Burton Chuirman, whiehseem ed to give geueral satisfaction; but when be was called on to appoint a Committee to select Delegates to attend tbe litrit Convention, the North sido objected. At this stage of the uuie bad blood begun to thow it.elf. Several propositions were made to conciliate, none of which were acceptable. At length the matter was btoughsquarely beture the Convention, whether Col. J. H. Farquhar or 0. W. Juiiau was the ch.iicc oi the Republicans of Ftuukltn County as their candidate for Congie-s. .The voto was first taken t ua totr, and the Chair announced for Far quhar. North side cal.cd for a division. Vote was then taken by rising to the feet. Pri't-ideut counted, aud again declared in favor of Farquhar. This t aired a tempest in tbe Julian teapot; called for an appeal; made epecchct-; piled up motions one on top of the other; uoue di!poted of. Mo tiou to adjourn lost. Genefal confuhiou, PreMdeut resigns and leaves the bou"e; Farquhar men followed; Julian men or ganize by making n Presidcut of tLtir own; then voted lor Julian; passed a res ulution adopting the Primary Election System, by which every Republican in the County ran have an opportunity of voting at ti e April election for tbe can didates ho prile.s to vote for at the annual October election. This is the only thing mcthiiiks the Republicans of Fraukliu County will endorse. it would bo unjust to charge the Re publican purl; of Franklin County with tho doing of tba aforeraid Convention. The mays of the voters wero at home, and bad no act or part iu it. A few having a little leisure uud a few dimes on band, and perhaps some other business at the Coun ty seat, were there; also eomo who had an ax lo grind and found others using the stouo a little too long to suit their inter est. It is well known that the heads of the Departments ut Washington have a num ber of petty little lucrative offices to fill, inch us post offices, revenue offices, and not a small number to watch tho whisky trade. The Representative in Congress hus something to do iu selecting tho per sons to fill there places, and although there are fully as many aa the people want, yet thcro ate nut as many us there ure patriots anxious to serve their Govern ment in that way. Tho Congressman can not create an ollico for every person who would like to havo one; tbe outs want in, and the tus don't want to bo turnod out in tho cold. So ho can't plcaso all; hence lift gets into bad oder with some, aod the they fight him to the bitter end. But bone and sinew of the country"-they who till tho soil, shove the jack-plane, swing the ax aud handle harness look upon tbe polit ical field from another stand point, and their judgment is not so apt to bo biased by such matters. As u general rulo they will select such men as they thiuk honest and qualified. So I think, by adopting the Primary Election System, by which they will have au opportunity of selecting candidates fur such offices as Congressmen, J udges, Pros ecuting Attorneys, County v Ulcers, Vo., by tho nlont ballot at home, which speaks iu tont that politician cannot muunder ktaud, we will havo moro harmony in our meetings and generul satufuction through out. nni well sutLHed that if we hud adopted tho ballot system aud voted at our April election for candidates, Col. Fur quliur would have received au overwhelm ing muiority in tho County, and been nominated, to fur as Franklin County Is concerned, without scurccly a ditsenting voice. 1 know that is tbo opinion in our end of the County, und I thiuk that those who run the Brookville Convention the second heat rcpresouted nobody but them, selves und t hot o they could drum up closo to Brookville. It is well known that Col. Farquhar has been the muft faithful and ifljuicut advo cutathe Republican purty overbad in the County. He bus labored day and night for its advancement, and his acts whilo in Congress were satisfactory, and these very mcu who opposed him in Convention will tell juu that they find no-fault with his public acts, but want to break up the clique. Now I am as much opposed to cliques as any of them, but I think they can bo broken up without doing grosa in justice to a gentleman who has 'been tho best sorvant tho party ever had, and they h'avo undertaken to pay him as tbo Car thagenians paid Hannibal by ingrati tude. In tho end it may work good for tbe Republican party, tor to people will have something' to say about who shall bo th next candidate lor offioe. REI'UIILICAN. Laurel, April 11, 1SC3. .
