One Crom well, a nerri offered a resolution to the effect that the preaenoe of Jefferson Davis, the arch , traitor'is detrimental to peace and good order, and that he be notified to leave the Bute within twenty-four honrsi which created eon siderable indignation among the members. Mr. Blaokborn aid it was a barbarism to order Mr. Davis, who la now, ii one sense, in eiucklcs and a prisoner, out of the Itate. He eaid he regarded him personally as a brave and ' 'candid, man, but politically as a traitor ;'and he therefore moved that the resolution be re turned to the delegate from which It emanated, 'which was carried by 54 toi. ;j HHT; Late advices from Alaska report peace and good will between the troops and the Indians Timber for the erection of barracks had , , arrived at Sitka, and the building will com mence as soon as the weather moderates. . In the Maryland Legislature yesterday Gen. ' B. 0. Vickers was chosen United Btates Sena tor, receiving 09 votes, against 41 for Mr. , Thumaiand 25 for Mr. Earl. ' 1 A KhamrlcM ftenator. " From the report cfCongregaional pro- . ceediogs in another column it will be , eeeo that Bea. Wade hag been gwora in 1 as one of the Senator! to try President Johnson, who may possibly be convicted by his single vote, and with the result of displacing Mr. Johnson and giving bis ' office to Wade himself. In times of re publican health and political boneaty no man could do so shameful a thing with . out being universally regarded as so far sunk below the level of a gentleman as to make it dunccrous to another man's reDUtation to treat him as such. But now a powerful party, comprising almost A moiety of the Northern States, will ap plr.ud the atrocious infamy. A President of the United States is on trial for the grave offense of removing a spy, tyrant and traitor from his own household, before a Senate representing bat two-thirds of the States, and falsely representing the ascertained will of that ' two-thirds, and many of whose members hare formed and expressed opinions dis- aualifjire them to sit as jurors or triers, and one of them, the basest of all, having the goldeu bait of the highest office of the world before him, which, by wanly and honorable mewos, he ceold never reach Oh, shame! where ia thy blush T Oct telcprams Ugio to come ajaisj through Radical chaaneli eal to wear a bartT colorirg, which shall endeavor v ' ,., , ... to correct Keetwnue mt rwaaere win h.ve the eatitfactioB of knowing that tb worst is toM against the Coostrvative iotrr?- and he ahle to a.tke the proper allawane Whea r telegrams are ind;cated as coming from Trihutu and 7ft disratchet as yesterday, the RadireJ hb-l is al vya earXcieatly ap parent, ar.4 should be borne ia Bind. ill l: Nsaa-wjfr Tbo Klarlaass sr4wwsajr OOeers. Bach good and faitbftil work ft halo dona by Consertadvei in thtf ejleclion which U progressiog to-day.-fthat ' we should feel entirely ponfidooi of a fator- ablo result, bat for one fact, and thai is positive certainty that the registration r .a has been nnfair, Ubstaclet niv Deen thrown in the way of white ot errs obtain lag their oertificatea, while negroes have been aided to the utmost ; and so aoy whites have been excluded by ,the rush of the crowd, Ihe limited time given, and the difficulty attendinfthe procurement of certificate! by" gentlemen- from the country, that it will be . miracle if. the Coneerrfttives succeed. We confess frankly it is more than we expectv Ihe action of Brownlow and the Legialalnre was not to prevent frauds, nor wsi it because frauds had been ( practiced as was pretended, but it was for the ex press purpose of rendering It possible to control the election by Iraoda, obstaoree difllcoliies, and all the cirenmstances and chances a new registration conld be made to give. This being the evident design, it is reasonable to suppose the proper agents have been ' telocted by Brownlow to effect his purpose, And it will, indeed be strange if, that purpose is not accomplished.' 1 If there was any cause of complaint of the old Vsjilrtoni bT Mr- DaT1, xt was that he was too rigidly exacting as to all Conservative applicants, and too little so as to the Radical claimants, for certificates. But there was too much honesty in the sturdy old man to allow of bis refusing. certificates to those who conld make a satisfactory showing, and he would not limit the days of registration 10 a'to"hut out, intention ally any man fairly' entitled ' to vote by the terms of the disfranchising law of Tennessee, lie gave all a fair chance, so far as he conld. ' But that did not suit the Radical ringleaders, and a new reg istrar was selected, who was doubtless beliered to be better suited for their pur poses, and who seems te ns to have am ply realized their expectations. j r Think of undertaking; (0 frceister ten thousand names in four days, with fonr more added nnexpectedly and by special request, and this with personal fcrutioy and the administration of oaths; and all this done with the utmost deliberation and leisurely alowness, in five or six fours of the day, in small rooms, con tinually crowded and jamaed ,by three, four or five hundred men at a time. The effect has" been precisely such as was' intended.'-A 'large portion of the white voters of the city have given np the effort in despair, old men in their eager determination to retain if possible the great right of freemen, have stood and suffered for hours and days in the pressing throngs until they fainted in their tracks, anthe white -citizens of the county at large seeing the difficulties which barred the way to residents of the ity,,wherein( only certificates could be had,, have-not nndertaien the herculean task of securing certificates at great additional expense of time and money. So great a wrong was never he-' fore practiced on and endured by any ' freemen of this country. We have only hinted at some of the sickening details. Thej render infamous every man en gaged in originating and carrying them oat. The game undertaken at such a shameless cost bf every appearance of decency will not fail for want of any su peradded yilliany which trgy be) neces sary to its accomplishment H Hi i ' We have a noble exemplification of an old fashioned love of republican institu' tions in the zeal with, which our venera ble old men are pressing under difficulties to retain their right as voters and sove reigns of the country. Immortal honor to their noble names I We hear that they have paid one hundred dollars an hour to the Register here for time in which to ob tain certificates which should be free of cost to all entitled to them I What ft hardship to be deprived of the freeman's franchise without reason, excuse or crime I 1 1 ..

The Secretary of the Senate read yesterday's minutes. The Chief Justice then stated the ques tion to be, on a motion to postpone the swearing in of Mr, Wade, of Ohio, until the remaining Senators had been sworn. lie also announced that Mr. Dixon had the floor. After mnch debate, Mr. Wade ad vanced to the chair and took the oath, as administered by the chair, the re maining Senators having been sworn in in the interim. The Chief Justice proclaimed that the Senate was now duly organised to pro ceed with the trial of Andre Jebnson, Pmident of the United Stat. The sergeant-at-aras then made the follow ing proclamation : ' "Heat ye I All persona arecommaaded to keen ailmee on bain of imprisonment. while the Senate of the United States is sitting tor the trial of articles ol impeach ment again Andrew Johnson, Presi dent of the Uaitad Siatea." t The managers on the part of the House, with the exception of Bteveoa, then ap peered and demanded that the Senate issue an order for the apprehension of Andrew Johnson, President of the Uni ted State U nnewes- ehnrgea. On motion of Mr. Howard, it waa ordered that the President be summoned to appear an Friday, March 13, at one o'clock after- coon. The Court then, at three o dock, I adjoarned tiil next Friday.

Walker, who murdered young Bicknell in Lawrence copnty, was forcibly taken from tbe Columbia jail, Tuesday night, by abouta ho ndred men disguised, placed on a white horse, carried to ft point on the railroad about half mile south of the town, and there hung to the limb of tree. The Nashville Banner of the 5th says: ' On entering Columbia, the Knklux went through the same maneuvers which had characterited their visit the night before. Tbey threw out pickets on all the streets leading to the jail, and ittpd no one to arjoroach. Althoogh the sheriff had posted ft strong guard around tbe builHmg.no resistance was offered as the K. , K'e had come with numbers sufficient to overwhelm any ordinarr posse. Owing to the excitement incident 10 tbe second demand made opao him for vouni hick cell's murderer, tbe jailer was unable to rememoer woere ne oaa leu his key. In tbeir.-irnoatience. the aven gers of blood brokl the locks oa Walker's cell and dragged him forth to deatn. I n body was left hanging for a considerable Dorlioa of thedav and was visited byal- uoat every person, young and old, black and wbite, tor miles around. i ' Ia (he full knowledge tbat his career would soon be ended, Walker had affected to prepare himself for the hereafter, bat with only indifferent success. He bore his fate, however, with more coolness than bed bern anticipated. ' On Inesday the prisoner stated that Walker was not his name, and tbat his mothfr was a respectable widow.
