Wahiiimjto.v, March 22. Tho galleries were densely crowded long before the hour of meeting, and by the time the Sen ato was called to order, not even standing room was to ho obtained In the galleries, tho doorway, or -tho passaged lending th.-re. Upon tho lloor were a large num ber of members of tho Hou-e of Itcpro sentatives and others entitled to tho priv ilege of the Moors. Consideration of the unfluUhed busi ness, the resolution approving of tho ac tion of the President in regard to Louisi ana, was resumed, and Andrew Johnson of Tennessee, being entitled to tho Moor, began to speak at ten minutes past 12 o'clock. -Mr. Johnson said: This resolution pro poses to cover acts and measures which 1 think clearly in violation of tho organic law of tho land, and without authority. That being so, I cannot give my consent to the resolution and will lie compelled to vote against It. 1 think it proper that I should give some few reaons whj I can not give it my vote. In the llrst plare, Mr. Pre.-Ident, it seems to mo that the consideration of a resolution embracing questions of such grave importance Is not legitimate, and legitimately before this body. In other words, It Is not legitimate to consider It before a Senate convened as tills lias been convened, to act solely upon business pertaining to the Executive De-! partni.-nt. I f It is legitimate to act on the measure now unlcr consideration by this body, it is legitimate to consider every net and every question upon which tho ad ministration hsc acted tlnce its advent to power, it does not seem to me to bo trav eling much further out of the record for the Executive to come forw-rd and pre sume to act in defiance of the legislature than for the legislature to come forward and approve the acts of tho President. Ordinary measures are presented for the consideration of Congress, and when they are acted upon It is the duty of the Presi dent to consider them and approve or re ject them. Mr. Johnson argued at length that the Senate had no authority to act upon the resolution, e.-pechdly in theab;enceof the other house. He contended that the reso lutions of Messrs. Morton and Fa-llng-huyecn were the same in tlibsbmcc, with a mere moditidtioii in the matter of ver biage to suit the particular views of some individuals. Ho next referred to the trouble in the TVniteste Legislature in WA), and tho action of the Federal Gov ernment instructing Genend George II. Thomas, in command of the Federal forces there, to strictly abstain from any inter ference. His instructions, he said, were as follows: Washington, Julj i;, lsiv;. General Grant will Instruct General ThomaR that the incU ftatcl In Iiis tolnrnim do not war rant Hie intcriorencc of the militarr. ThcaU minletraUon of laws and nrcM-rvjition of peace in NnMivillc belong proiKirly to the Slate authori ties, and the duty ot the United Staleauthorlties Is not to interfere in any way in the controvercy iKUu-ecu the public autfioriUea of the Mate, and Uuucr.il Thmnais will strictly abstain from :iny luterfercncc between them. Here is a precise case, and that was the action of the Government. It was be lieved that it was a civil strife a contest between two divisions of the civil govern meat and was a case, as stated in the tel egram sent back to Genend Thomas, sim ilar to the one on Louisiana. That dis patch was signed by the Secretary of War, and was written in the presence nf the President and sent to Genend Graut to send to General Thomas. Ho was told that this was not a case calling for inter ference of the military, and h (Thomas) should ab-taln from interference under any circumstances whatever. It would seem that this is the inark-stotio between the civil and military authorities. Ihcre is tho precedent of the Government in that case, and the cases are almost paral lel, and that was what the Government did then. What are wo told nw? We see then that the President of the United States was familiar with and understood what was the action of the Government Incases of this kind, and of the duty of the military and civil authorities. We see :o'C:il!,"lt Rf nof Sd" wiS to him, and he has not acted vutuout the subject. It be has been infonnwlof . and acted and carried arrieu out me ortier ot ine i telegram that I have read, he must have 'inderstood it aud known it was the true doctrine and principle upon which ca-es of this kind should be maiuiged by the military. He then referred to the removal of Gen end P. II. Sheridan from the command of tho Fifth .Military Distr ct, Aug. 20. ISC7, and said It was In consequence of the wail that came up from the people of that sec tion. Why w as it that this man Sheridan had Ween selected and sent back to those people who before condemned him and pravedforhls removal? He (Johnson) knew the determination of the people of the South : their great object was to bo re stored to the Union. He would tell some of those who were acting behind the cur tain that if thov expected to stir up an other civil strife, ami amid the war cry and strife have one ride Into power for a third term, thov might bid farewell to liberty. countrymen, .Mr. I'resiuent, mat me em Applause in galleries. plro Is ahead, and that.

Instead of the. resolution now beiorc the Mr. Johnson next spoke of the action of i Senate, I would go to the President with tho President in Louisiana allalrs, and ' the language, if I were permitted to pre sald: We find that tho United States 1 pare the resolution, that C ato used to the shall iruanintee to every State In this Union a republican form of government. Has the President of the United States such power? T do not understand him to be the United States. Doea that provis- Ion authorize tho Executive, upon hk own volition, to go and take charge in erson, or by his agentpome man selected from the tinny, of the Government of a State? No, sir; there is no such thing hi the Constitution, and interfering fu tho State of Louisiana In the taking of that Gov ernment, is a palpable violation of the i Constitution of the United State?. If this course Is to be practiced, und tho Federal Government in going to be a partner to disappointed candidates to the olllce of f Governor of a State. I see we have inaugu rated a suite of things which will result in the overthrow of tho Constitution, which binds tho nation together aud is the foun dation of government. Why, the time lias been In thla country and since my recollection, too that if an act like this, if a usurpation like this had been attempted, it would have pro duced a shook throughout the nation. The nation would have been indignant from one extreme to the other, and would have been ready to hurl from power the perpe trator of such an act. But now we see tilings diirercntly ; we can see men come into power and exerciso power not author ized by the organic Jaw of the hind. We luve gone outside of the Constitution In a way that will bring this government to tin end, or change its diameter so that iu present structure will all be lost. Tho Senator here referred to the orders sent to Sheridan to proceed to New Or leans, and said : Here Is a general of the army who Is sent back to the jwoplo that repudiated him with authority to go and look over this country, and to mark Ithn M.df out an empire, prescribe the limits of Ids government, or what he shall take un der control. He marks out the area; he describes the points and limits of his com mand ; ills power is us absolute a that of an emperor. Look at t ie growth of pow-! or; look at the advances Which usurpa tion is making, and when we come to con sider calmly and deliberately, without party bias o- prejudice, we linu that those acts are none other than those of usurpa tion and tyninn3 Where does all this power come from? and, I might ak, "Up on what m. -at does this our Canr feed, that lie hath grown so great" that he can prescribe and lay down empire and place commanders over them? it Is time the country was awakened anil considered these things. If the excitement has been So high In times gonebv that many things have been overlooked, I think the time has arrived, and 1 trust the excitement has gone down, and that the American people can return to the organic law of the land. It is time that ieopTc had begun to con sider and weigli well these thiugs. Mr. Johnson described the organization of the Loui-iana Legislature, and continu ed : I cannot regard the action of the military or of the Ppesidentas in accard antv with the Constitution. t I cannot re cord my vote for this resolution. I will not vote against this resolution because it is a Kcpublican measure, but I will vote against it ou principle. This resolution calls on the Senate to express an opinion favoring practices wh'ch I think are unau thorized and unwarrantable : but if we re cord one vote sanctioning Presidential in terference what are we to do in other ejises? Why single out this particular act, and in principle sanction It, nnd not sanc tion all the high-handed measures which preceded it? The action of tltc President in Arkansas affairs was denounced by Senator Johnson, who referred to the growth of Federal power as follows : We see how this pow er travels. An empire Jaul otl in tue Sou tli. commanded by a military chief. Then we come along to the fori bill, then we come along to indorsement by Con gress, and looking on these things, wo in quire, what lies behind all this ?

The Life-saving Scrrice. There are thirty-nine life-saving stations from Sandy Hook to Cape May, compris ing District No. t. Each ci-trict is in cliarge of a superintendent; all are under the supervision of a captain in the revenue marine service, and the entire service is In the hands, oftho Kevenuu Marine Bureau. The stations are each In charge of a keeper selected by the superintendent, who Is held accountable for the property placed In his charge and the management of the apparatus. Six sttrfmen are attached to each station, who are elected by the keeper from the ablest wreckers ami ftahermen along the coast. They live In the station house from December 1 to April Land are subject to call at any time during the rest of the year. Tho beach Is patrolled ev ery night its entire length, the watch from each station going hall vvav in both direc tions to tiie next station, thus making one continuous patrol. The houses are placed as close to the fhorc as Is safe, and are fur nidied with the most elllcietit apparatus for saving life, principal among which are the life-boat, life-ear. mortar and balls, hawser, lines, tackles, sigial lanterns, Coston lights, life preservers, etc. The kitchen is furnished with cooking stove, tabic, stools, tinware and dl-he. and the lK-droom with mattresses and blankets. On these tempestuous night-, when the northeaster'" howls along the coast like a blast from 7.abrador. the greatest vigi lence is necessary, for it is then when there is likely to be a sore need for the services of the wrecker. The latter draws on his rubber clothing and starts our on Iiis pa trol, lantern In hand, the driving sleet and sand making it impossible to look in the direction of the wind. He pu-hes on, guarding his eyes with the vi-or of Iiis cap, and peering here and there Into the dark ness. His' route is dangerous, for the treacherous surf has worn gullies and deep quicksands in unexpected places, into which he is liable to plunge at any step. When he hears the sound uf a vessel pounding on the beach, and the Happing and snapping tf her sails, io soon as lie can make oiit her outlines ho instantly burns a red llyht as a signal that it Is seen. Tho surfman makes allhaste to the sta tion aud reports to the keeper, who sum mons all hands. The life-ear and mortar are loaded upon the wagon, with hawser and lines and all that Is needed, and the laborious task of hauling through the gullied and sand In the face of the fetonn is begun. I'ejthing the scene of Uie wreck the keeper, with the aid of his night-glass, does his utmost to ascertain the jwsltiou of the stranded vessel, and he selects a spot In which to place the mortar. It U u bid time now to give orders, for the roar of the ocean andstorm drowns the strong est voices, and a man can split ids throat without being heard six feet away. All, however, know their part, aud there is lit tle necessity for issuing commands. Rub ber blankets are held by several of the men, whi.e the charge ot powder and the ball, live and three-quarter inches In diam eter, are carefully put in place. The line is skillfully coiled to prevent its becoming entangled, and the end Is fastened to the ball by a spiral wire. The mortar is ranged and elevated, careful regard being had to the force and direction of the wind. A white light Is burned to warn those on the vessel of wliat it coining, and the match is applied. Then there is n heavy boom from the mortar, a ringing screech from the line, as it Is drawn out with great velocity through the air and drops across the ship. The waiting teamen, by the aid of this line, draw otl a second one of large size, and by means of the second pidl off the hawser, which is made fast to the ship. The sand-anchor is firmly im bedded in the beach and a powerful tackle is secured-to it, by which the hawser Is drawn as tight as the rolling of the vessel will permit. The life-car Is suspended be neath, and drawn out to the ship by the second line and hauled back to the shore by a rope attached for that purpose, which process is continued until nil are landed. The car is boat-shated and made of iron, lltted wilh k tight cover, which an bo se cured by fastening both outside and within, aud it will accommodate six men, al though more maybe crowded in. Only a few minutes are required to make a " pa mw." A the air snccdilr becomes villa a- ted and unaoie to support me, qmcK wor is necesary.

During the past vear forty-elcht ves-els, valued with their c irgoes at S2.231.C0G, and liav on board 1,1 CC persons, were driven on our shore?, and 303 persons were rescued by the Life-Saving Service last year.
