and if sufficient ground exists to present
to the meeting for its adoption, memo

tbe full benefit of ft worthy act.. If not,
the refusal will only intensify their re
sponsibility before the people of the
whole State. VT.
Our recollection accord with tbe state
ment of our corresoondent that tbe res
olution wag a broad one, requiring a re
port covering the whole question of tbe
nower of judicial officers over tbe subject
of contempt, and generally to devise
and specify the proper course to be taken
in the nremises. The reason of an ad
journment was, a we understand it, an
apprehension that it would be indelicate
or imDroDer in the members of tbe bar to
give expression to1 their views under a
call in which an individual wrong Dad
been designated, and pending the trial of
a cause involvisg the rights of the same
individuals, which had arisen subse
auently to the call, and which involved
tbe same subject matter. Tbe case was
now before a new tribunal, for
which tbe members of the bar bad
all proper respect, and with which it was
regarded as unwise to interfere by any
expression precedent to such a decision
as it might make. We have no doubt the
indication of the opinion of the bar on
the whole snbject of the powers of judges
who overstep the limits of their legitimate
authority will be decided and emphatic
And whether the resolution, under which
the committee has been appointed, calls
for any initiatory steps looking to im
peachment or not, it will certainly be
very competent and proper for the meet
ing; to take action on that subject when
again convened on the call of the Presi
Mo ttuornm.
Judge Woodward, 'now a member of
Con areas from Pennsylvania, and for-
for manv vears Chief Justice of

and tha Secretary read the journal of
th last meeting of the Court-
As a large number of Representative,
beaded by th manager oftbe impeach

dnnr. a motion was made by Mr. Howard,
that the Sergeaat-at-Arma notily the
House that th Senate ia organized aa a
Court of Impeachment and ready to
proceed with the trial of Andrew John
son immediately. '
Roon after the managera and members
of tbe House took the seats provided for
them, and tbe Senators wbo had not done
so took the oath.
The return of tbe Sergeant.at-Arms
from his service of the summons on the
President was read, when, on motion of
Johnson, tbe counsel of the President
were notified of the commencement of
the proceedings, and MeasrC Stanbery,
Curtis and Nelson appeared and took
their seat at the table, on the right of
the Chief Justice, and opposite to the
managera, who wer seated on tbe left
Butler, the remaining manager, here
came in, and shortly after another depu
tation from the House entered, headed
by the Speaker, Washburn, of Illinois,
and McPherson, the Clerk of tbe House,
and ranged themselves behind tbe bar.
Stanbery arose, and, addressing the
Chief Justice, read the answer of the
President entering bis appearance, and
naming as bis counsel, Messrs. Stanbery,'
Curtis, Nelson, Black and Evarta, and
aniline a reasonable time for tbe prepara
tion of tis defense the period of forty
days, and citing various cases in which
neriods aa long, in proportion to the
magnitude of the case, bad been granted.
Bingham, in bebalf of the managers,
contended that the eighth rule provided
that on the appearance of the President
he was required to file hia answer, anS in
case bis answer was not filed, then the
trial should proceed as on a plea of " not
guilty." He claimed, therefore, tbat the
trial should proceed forthwith.
Curtis, in reply, referred to tbe cases
of Judge Humphreys and others, and
argued that the rule was susceptible of
no 'such construction as was put en it by
Nelson followed, and enlarged upon
the same views as his colleague.
Stanbery expressed greater surprise
than he had before felt at this claim put
forward by the managers, and said there
seemed to be a disposition to hurry
through this momentous trial, as if it
were a case before a police court He
argued from the working of the other
rules that the appearance day was not to
be the day for answering, and also the
trial day. Also, that two of the Presi
dent's counsel were not present, and that
no oriDortunity had been offered for tbe
preparation of a defense or the calling
of witnesses. He said that in tbe worst
days of the Star Chamber such an at
tempt to hurry through a trial had never
been made. He spoke very warmly,
saying there " seemed, to have been a
trap set for tbe President and big coun
Butler asked to be heard in bebalf of
the managers, and asked why railroad
speed should not be used ia this trial.
He contended that the roles and prece
dents of ordinary courts were not appli
cable to this trial- Io ordinary trials no
laoger would result from delay, but in
is case tbe necessity for prompt action
was pressing. Ibe respondent at toe
iar controlled the power of tbe nation,
and might in any moment of passion,
prejudice or make wrong nse of it, for
the injury and ruin of the country.
The business of tbe War Depaatment
would stop until the result of this trial
was reached- The pulse of tha nation

Chief Justice said the motion would be

the rules-
Mr. Biegham roe, aad said ha had

retired fur consultatio'a, and at 4:10 re
turned to their Chamber, and the toun
reassembled, when: lb' Chisf Justice

filing of an application by tbe managers

The Chief Justic submitted the order
to th Senate, and on the adoption of
th oueation th yta and naya were
taiea, resulting yea, 23 ; naya, 2Q.
So th order was denid.
Wilson said he had com bore expect
ing to murder political discussion, and
under th impression that the forma of
nmoMtJinf would be purely judicial in
their character, buti like the honorable
managers, be did not expect that tbey
would b limited by the forms of ordi
nary tribunals. Ha thought liberality
should ba extended by this high court to
an nnusual degree, and coutended that
the application of the defendant waa one
deserving euch ' treatment He cited a
rule of the Court of Tennessee, which
nrovides for tha postponement of a trial
to another term, when the defendant has
not bad time to prepare bis answer, lit
spok of the great magnitude of this
case, and areued the necessity of cau
tious deliberation, and the impropriety
of railroad speed. He said the last two
charges of tbe House of Representatives
opened " Pandora' box," which would
necessitate a full investigation or all tbe
nointa of difference between Congress
and the President, and would make the
trial almost interminable.
Conkline offered as an amendment,
that unless cause for the delay be shown,
the trial shall proceed immediately after
tbe filing of the application.
Bingham expressed the satisfaction ot
the managers with Conkling's amend
ment He denied that the managers
were desirous of indecent haste, but said
they did wish to avoid delay in this im

The Lord Mayor explained that tne
imprisonment of Mr. Johnson, an Orange
Secretary in Ireland, was caused by iia
refusing to apologize for heading an

In a Committee of the Whole on me
state of Ireland, Mr. Fortescbue said tbat
reform in Ireland was possible without
disturbing the land tenure, but held that
church reform needed frank dealing.
Mr. Eeona thought that tbe new Uni
versity plan was tbe governmental pledge
of future equality of religious sects in
Ireland. ' . - . f
' Mr. O'Donabup. member of Tralce,
said that disaffection among the Irish was
wide-spread and had reached all classes,
and paralyzing trade. The Church and
land questions were leading causes
of discontentment: but the principal
cause was the refusal of independence
in legislation. The first remedies should
be to deprive the - Irish Church
establishment of its endowments, and
grant to tenants leases of not less dura
tion than thirty-one years. Hamilton
charged O'Donahue with being an or
ganizer of mock funerals in honor of
ARflaasins. John Bright said that the
evil of absenteeism and the injustice of
the church establishment .were not tne

the Government advance money for their
relief waa impracticable, aa the owner-

Ministers for the creation of a great
savings bank was inadequate. The plan
of Lord Russell for the settlement of tbe
church Question came too late. He said
endowm enta must be withdrawn from all
