IstrEAcnMANT.— After several postpone
ments, for the purpose of fixing doubtful
Senators " all right" for impeachment
through the political pressure of the Bump
ers and the radical party generally, the
High Court reached a vote on the eleventh
article on Saturday, acqnitting the Presi
dent of the high crimes and misdemeanors
therein charged. This was considered the
strong article of the series, introduced bv
Thad. Stevens, who said, in substance, if
they ceuld not convict on this it would he

State Committee of Pennsylvania in sol
emn conclave at Philadelphia, with the
heavy influence of the member from this
county, had passed a resolution that An
drew Johnson (whether guilty, of course,
or not guilty, for it is political necessity,)
must be convicted of the high crimes and
misdemeanors charged, the high court bad
the temerity to vote bim not guilty under
the law and the evidence. So impeach
ment may be considered dead, and the
radical party floundering in the last slough
of existence.
Radical Decency (P)
" Whom the gods wish to destroy they
| first make mad," is an adage which applies
with force to the present Rump Congress,
j " When rogues fall out, honest men get
their dues," is a truthful saying, and quite
as applicable to politicians and parties as
I to individuals, and strikingly illustrated
! in the disgraceful affair which oecuired in
the House of Representatives at Washing
ton one day last week between two rncm
' bers of the " loil" stamp, representatives
; of the party of " great moral ideas," in a
discussion upon each other's merits. We
| publish the t Washburne-Donnelly debate
i upon the first page of our paper, as report
, ed for the Congressional Globe, the official
organ of Congress. If hall what they say
of each other be true they both ought to
have been serving out their time in the
penitentiaries of their respective States
1 long ago, instead of disgracing the halls of
Congress with their foul-mouthed expose of
each others crimes. This debate eclipses
any that ever occurred during the palmiest
days ofJSouthern chivalry. If this out
rage upon parliamentary decorum had oc
curred between two Democratic members
of Congress they would bare been expelled
j forthwith for nsing language unbecoming
the dignity of that agust body.
Washburne charges Donnelly with being
: a man " who is covered all over with crime
and infamy ; a man whose record is stain
ed with every fraud—whisky aud other
frauds—a man who has proved false alike
! to his friends, his constituents, his country,
| his religion, and his God."
Donnelly retorts upon Washburne in
; the following style : " What if God in a
moment of enthusiasm at one of the gentle
man's speeches were to pluck him to his
' bosom and leave this wretched nation stag
! gering on in daikness to ruin. I fancy the
gentleman haranguing the assembled hosts
of Heaven, the cherubim and the seraphim,
the angels and the arch-angels. How he
would sail into them. How he would rout
them, horse, foot, and dragoons. How he
would attack their motives and fling insin
uations at their honesty ; and how he
would declare for economy, and urge the
j wheels of the universe must be stopped
I because they consume too much grease.
And if there be in our midst one low,
sordid, vulgar soul, or barren, mediocre
intelligence—one heart callous to every
'kindly sentiment, and every generous im
pulse—one tongue leprous with slander —
one mcfflh which is like unto a den of foul
beasts, giving forth deadly odors—if there
be here one character which, while blotch
ed and spotted all over, yet raves and rants
and blackguards like a prostitute—it is the
gentleman from Illinois."
Such is the character of Washburne, of
Illinois, pictured by one of his own parti
sans. And this is the man who has in
training the Republican candidate for the
Presidency—Gen. Grant. What do hon
est men think of the trainer and the train
ed? Will he he any fitter after receiving
instructions from such a character ?
Dawes, Rep. Mass., characterizes the de
bate as " remarks of the character of which
no man could find a parallel in the de
hates of Congress, certainly not in the
time that he had been a member of the
Ilouse. lie had never heard anything that
could compare with these remarks both as
to their personal character and the degrad
ing and offensive language used on that
Upon our first page will be fouud the
whole of this very delectable debate, to
which we invite the attention of the reader.
The Negro in the Methodist Church.
All have heard of the conventional nig"
ger in the fence. The same individual in
politics is equally familiar. The irrepres
sible personage bids fair to enter the
churches and to distract the saints. At
present, if there be no method, there is
certainly Methodism in his madness The
quadrenniel conference cf this Church in
the United States is in session in
Chicago. Besides being harrassed by the
depravities and perils of that provincial
place, a dark cloud hovers over their de
liberations, and its sable rain is dropping
discord into that body. The Mission
Confluences of Washington City and the
State of Delaware have sent delegates
whose color is beyond the power of im
peachment, and they demand admission.—
Through two days has debate run high for
and against the black brcthcrn. A con
vention of more than 250 ministers has
been unable to agree or to disagree to
their admission, and the whole question
was vicariouoly saddled on the Bishops,
who are of the mythological number of
nine, with orders to report either way,
without delay. For a denomination whose
clergy in nearly every conference have
gratuitously impeached Mr. Johnson, and
indorsed Digger suffrage South, this cava
jier treatment of the blacks literally wounds
them in the houses af their friends, and is
more characteristic than the proverbial in
gratitnde of republics. It is only fair to
add that the laity of the Methodist Church
are always denied election or representa
tion in their religious official assemblies,
and that this denial leads to the ministeri
al meddling in matters political, by which
the very large and probably prepondera
ting conservative sentiment of the Church
as a body is overborne.
country is going to get rid of supporting
the dishonest scallawag, that has so long
held the position of Clerk of the Senate,
is hardly possible. The World's Wash
ington correspondent, referring to it on
Wednesday says :
Forney's resignation is a trick. The
interests of conviction are thought to re
quire a heavy fire of threat and vitupera
tion on those Republican Senators who have
shown signs of voting for acquittal, and as
Forney, however he has abused the Pres
ident, could not turn his guns upon them
in ray papers, both daily, while actually
in the Senate, he has sent in a sprcies of
bogus resignation, which will enable him
to play this role without being expelled
from the Senate fur it. In this morning's
Chronicle says that bis connection with
the Senate having ceased, he is no longer
restrained by any official embarrassment,
in commenting on the course of those who
in this critical hour have joined hatlds with
Andrew Johnson and his rebel associates
and sympathizers. He then goes on to
call Grimes, Fesscnden, and Trumball
recreant Senators, and to declare that past
loyality cannot condone a vote for acquit
tal. Now the truth is, that as this resig
nation is only to take effect when a suc
cessor is appointed. Forney is as much
the Secretary of the Senate as before, and"
will doubtless draw his pay as usual, this
patriotic resignation to the contrary not
withstanding. In the Senate this morn
ing Summer moved to lay the resignation
on the table, the effect of which would be
to continue Forney as Secretary by fail
ing to elect a successor. To this Came
ron, who hates the Dead Duck,objected and
moved the resignation be accepted. But
Summer's motion prevailed, Hendricks
then moved the resignation be accepted
and a Secretary pro tern, be appointed un
til a regular election could be had. Sum
mer objected to the coesideration of this
motion, which would have made Forney ,s
resignation a resignation in earnest, it
went over, so that no successor, eithei
permanent or ud intirim, having been
appoined, Forney is still Secretary.
Mr. Harlan's Opinion on the Bight of
The following is the copy of an official
letter addressed by Hon. James Harlan,
when Secretary of the Interior—now U. S.
Senator from lowa—to a prominent gen
tleman who remonstrated with him against
making a removal in his department:—
July 3, 186.3. j
I have deemed it to be my privilege to
make removals in this department, and I
shall do so in the future without admitting
the right of any one to call the propriety
of my course in question. When Mr.
Smith became Secretary of the Interior he
at once sought and obtained the appoint
ment of those whom he personally prefer
red for assistants and associates. I have
been doing the same and expect to contin
ue to do the same. Success 39 an execu
tive officer requires it Any other course
would be suicidal This official rule of
right should prevail from the President to
the smallest executive officer having con
trol of subordinates. The President should
not appoint or retain a Cabinet Minister
who is not his personal choice for the po
sition ; and, according to my views, a CaCi
net could not in Belf-respect remain in office
after Becoming satisfied or having reason
to believe that he was not the President's
personal choice. The same rule should
maintain between the heads of depart
ments and the heads of bureaus under his
Yours truly,
INSANE AND NCDK. —Monday afternoon
the police arrested a man, supposed to be
about forty-five years of age, on Lacka
wanua Avenue, in a perfectly nude state,
he having torn every shred of clothes from
his person. lie refused to give his name
or residence, and was therefore taken to
\ the lock-up for safe keeping.— Register.
The Extremists and the Chicago Con
Mr. Forney communicates to the Phila
delphia Press, 89 an understood thing,
" that no Republican who opposes the con
viction of Andrew Johnson will be allow
ed a seat in the Republican Convention at
Chicago." In other words, the licpubli
lican who doubts the expediency of im
peachment, or denies the sufficiency of the
testimony adduced as the groundwork of
Mr. Johnson's removal is to be read out of
the party.
We have had signs on this subject be
fore. The unblushing avowal that convic
tion is a party necessity, whether warrant
ed by law and evidence or not, and the
persistent endeavor to bully Senators into
conviction by holding up " infamy" as the
penalty of acquittal, have clearly revealed
the recklessness and tyranny which aspire
to the control of the Republican party. —
The disposition has been growing some
time. Formerly, it was enough that men
subscribed to the declared policy of the
party and worked according to the best of
their judgment for the attainment of its
ends. More recently, other tests of fealty
have been invented. Adhesion to regular
ly authorized platforms has been declared
insufficient, and a man's republicanism has
been suspected and denied unless he hur
rahed for every measure which Radical
members of the party introduced into Con
gress. It has become necessary to swear
by Stevens, and pin one's faith to the
sleeve of Boutwt-11 or Butler to escape ex
commuuicatien as a heretic aud traitor
In pursuance of the same intolerant
plan, it is intended, Mr. Forney declares,
to exalt impeachment into the party test of
orthodoxy. Before obtaining admission to
the Chicago Convention, delegates must
hold up their right hands and avow that
they favored Johnson's official decapita
tion, with evidence or without it, in con
formity with law or in spite of it. We
are not prepared to believe that 60 impu
dent a pretension will be tolerated for an
instant. But the fact that is talked of in
certain circles at Washington indicates the
readiness of extremists to employ extraor
dinary means to obtain control of the Con
They are not alone in the work. Wen
dell Phillips has given notice that the Con
vention w ill be required to engraft negro
suffrage upon the platform of the party ;
and the German Radicals make no secret
of their purpose to press their views'upon
the Convention. Both the Wendell l'hil
lips faction and the Missouri Germans pro
claim an intention not to accept the nomi
nation of Grant apart from a thoroughly
radical platform; and both will go to Chi
cago prepared to coalesce with other ex
tremists for the promotion of the common
object. The aim in all the is to re
construct the Republican party after the
Radical model, and to shapu the tactics of
the couipaigu with a view to Radical su
premacy. The work will not be easy ; it
is more likely to fail than to succeed ; but
it should not therefore be despised.—A'.
V, Times.
THE I)KAD DUCK. —The Senate Com
mittee appointed to examine into the
Forney defalcation has made report, white
washing Forney, and professing to throw
the responsibility on old Mr. Wagner
( Forney's father-in-law, we believe.) —
But the sequel is anything but flattering
to the Dead Duck. Two woids tell the
tale— Forney has resigned ! That For
ney's resignation was the penalty exacted
by the Senate Committee, tor his defalca
tion, hardly admits of a doubt. Nothing
short ofexpubion and disgrace could shake
Forney's hold of a fat office yielding him
perquisities amounting to twenty or thir
ty thousand a year, lie has resigned ! has
he? How comfortable it would be for
other good men like him, if they could
escape penitentiary walls by resignation.—
MAD DOGS. —There is quite an excite
ment on the other side of the river kcAi
cerning mad dogs. During the late snow
storm, a dog passed up the river road and
bit every dog he could reach. Since then
quite a number of dogs have gone mad,
and one man has been badly bitten on the
hand. The excitement is increasing.—
We do not know what legal slops should
be taken for the protection of the public,
other than that every man shoot every dog
found staying around his premises. Cows
have been bitten, and the mad dogs have
run up through Apalachin village, and up
the creek road into Pennsylvania. Our
advice would be there as well as in the
village, to kill the dogs:— Oicego Times.
We also learn /rom reliable sources,
that this same dog passed through the
towns of Warren, Orwell, Pike and Der
rick. He took especial pains to bite every
dog who crossed bis path. Some twenty
five are known to be bitten. He crossed
over into Susquehanna county, and was
killed at Bear Swamp, near Middletown.
Washington dispatch says a severe encoun
ter took place on Capitol 11 ill, Thursday
night, between Representative Randall, of
Pennsylvania, and ex-Governor Hamilton,
of Texas, better known among tbe car pet
baggers as Jack Hamilton. It arose from
an interchange of opprobrious epithets.—
Hamilton felled Randall to the pavement
with a heavy cane and struck him several
times, when he was hauled off by the by
standers. Mr. Randall was conveyed to
his residence in an almost insensible con
dition and is repre®nted to be seriously
injured. Hamilton has not been arrested,
grels about Washington are praying that
President Johnson will resign before
Tuesday next, and thus simplify matters.
Very likely be will. The prayers of the
righteous availeth much. But those of
the wicked ? Aye, there's the rub."
SteTcns' foreshadowed the fate of the
remaining articles of impeachment if the
eleventh should be defeated. In his speech
of March 5, he said :" if without that ar
" tide they do not acquit him, they are
" greener than ever 1 was, when I com
