t&- Hon. D. F. Brndloy, on Monday
last, roturnod to his duties in tho Legislature,
which roasHcmbled on tho
10th instant.
Wo publish on our outsido, tho
rticlcs of impeachment against Bclktlap1,"
preferred by tho llouso of Representatives,
and his trial boforc tho
Sonato will soon commonco. The
managors of the impcachmont are
oven in numbor, fivo Doinocrats and
two Republicans.
In tho impoaohmonttrial oi Andrew
Johnson,tho Republicans did not give
tho DuuiuOFAto a aicglo manager. The
Domoorats, discarding tho "Lox tali
onis," hnvo magnanimously given tho
Republicans two out of tbo sovon, but
wo foar that they havo cast pearls bo- ,
foro swine. Tho Southern Domocrats
doclined to allow any 0110 of their number
to net as a manager, considering,
and, perhaps justly, that it was none
of thoir funoral, and tiist tho Northern
and Westorn mon who were
"ondcr firo" "for high orimcs an''
misdemeanors in office should be investigated
by Northorn and Western
Republicans; and knowing, furthermoro,
that, if thoy wcro placed as a
manager that a universal howl would
bo raised in Ibo North about a "rebel"
prosecuting a "Union soldier"?notwithstanding,
tho Union soldior in
qacstion is a confessed bribe taker.

J. C. and Edward Bailoy, proprietors
of tho GroonviHo Entorpviso ami
Mountnineor, for f 10,000damages was
bogun Wounesuliy z'Jtii ult. Thtscnsc
really originated from a malicious ar*
ticlo, from tho pen of Earlo, published
in tho Greenville Republican, intending
to injure nnd refloct upon tho
granges, and upon Col. Qrittcndon,
thoir Chief Marshal. Earta, hiding'
behind tho Republican, commenced
tho attack, and only acknowledged
tho authorship after Jtunion, tho edi->
tor, had boon beaten by Crittondon
for tho publication. Aftor acknowN
odging tho authorship, ho rofusod to
muko reparation, but continued his
malicious attacks, really hiding himself
behind tho law. Crittondon, having
no other resourco left, exposed
I Earlo's character in tho Enterprise
and Mountainocr, by saying that he
was "destitute of honor, principle, and
every instinct of a gentleman?in fact
a moral bankrupt." Now, instead of
attacking or prosecuting Crittenden,
who acknowledges the authorship,
Earlo puts his damages at $10,000 and
sues the Messrs. Bailey, tho piopriotors
of tho Enterprise and Mountaineer.
Tho burden of proof is on the Dofondants
to show that Karlo is guiily
of all that was allogcd against him.- Tho
al'.ogod libel asserts that Earle
has bcon guilty ot "horso stealing,''
compounding a t:folony," and various
othor criincs, and that ho is a "moral

in support of theso charges, was

"bad, very bad." And on the contrary,
