Tbe New York Tribune treat! the im peachment most nnblushingly as a party matter. It has no idea that Senators are eworn or obligated and bound on oath to deeido the matter according to the law nrl the testimony, and even regards the policy of impeachment as depending on I the conduct of Wade after it has taken place.

And yet Mr. Greeley respects bimselt so little bb to pronounce, fop the party pnrpose, that a man who votes to actjuu will be branded with an infamjfaore damning than that of Benedict "Arnold I If one thing could change tbo mind of an honorable man more certainly t,han another sgainot a verdict of guilty, this is that thing. Suchoutrage is the most powerful influence which can be brought stgainet its ofu purpose with such a man, and Mrreeley will find it so. County Conventlona. The Nashville Octette suggest! Mon day, the first day of June, as a suitable day for the County Conventions to select delegate! to the State Convention at Nashville, to be held on the ninth of Jone, Tbe Appeal thii morning in dorses the suggestion, it being the day eelected at Naehville for Davidson county. That day is sufficiently far off for full advice in the several counties, and sofficiently near to give the requisite opportunity for the delegates to Nash ville to prepare for the trip. So that we hope there will be no objection to tbe eeleclion of that day, aod that a meeting will be announced for Monday, the first day of June. It would be qaite proper for the Committee of the Central Demo cratic Association of Shelby County to make tbe call here. Tbe ftltwatlloau A Washington correspondent of the ew York World thus refers to the situ ation ai to tbe matter of admission of the newly constructed States: A ood deal of boasting has been in dulged in that Sooth Carolina will be at once admitted to representation on the ...nianet bv Conerees of the censtita- tion in qiaV.ion.

All which is such certain proof of bribery Rn(j corruption as demands' swift hires- ligation. y" The Southern "Cfion men," so- called, being reajly the carpet-baggers, ot wnom m7e are many l n Washington, are reported the most crest-fallen of all v v fOor fellow! ! They are organizing to show what a deplorable effect it will have on their carpet-bags, tax titles, plunder and facilities for stealing should the President be acquitted I Their dele gates to Chicago and members to Con gress would be unsafe to return home I Dispatches from the South exhibit vast anxiety, and all niggordom is in trouble lest an innocent man should not be con victed by the perjury of Senators I The miserable devils were safe before the impeachment, notwithstanding all their crimes. But the acquittal of an innocent man would indicate a returning eeose of diAy, honor and integrity, even to Congress itself, which would be in the way of their plans. There are those who do not covet justice. Rogues, who dread the halter, have a poor opinion of the Roman virtue which holds its scales with an even poiee. It is only when tie government is in the hands of purcbaeeable men, and not when old fashioned American honor site at the helm of public affairs, that they are safe. Alas I for them, there is no escape, except they turn hypocrite and put on sheep's clothing. If Mr. Johnson is convicted, bow evi dently will it be the result of anything and everything but a fair deal. 'No man will ever afterward dare pretend there was any fairness in tbe trial whatever. It seems to eSave been tbe bnainess of the,! Republican members of the Mouse to arm and buttonhole and argue and prom ise and threaten tbe Senate jury out of doors.

We have no fear, therefore, that men of high character and intellect will be moved from their propriety by the storm which rages, and the eager wolves tbat howl aroend the walls of the Washington Capitol Whether there are enongh such men to defeat this unprecedented and most monstrous iniquity remains to be seen.

The following are extracts from a let ter signed by tbe Presidents ot toe National Labor Vnion and of the Iron Moulders' National Union of New York, addressed to tbe workingmen. Tbe laboringmen and poor of this country will hardly vote to psy the nntaxed bondholders in gold, when they aod all other men must take greenbacks: The evil effects of the late war are now telling saiily upon the masses, and tbe heavy burdens of taxation have nearly paralyzd every branch of industry, iiuudreds of thousands in this land of boundless resources, who are both able and willing to work, are without employ ment, and with difficulty obtain the necessaries of life and procure shelter for themselves and families. Oiher thousands who Lave employment who toil early and late forced to practice the most rigid economy and occupy the cheapest apartments, often unhealthy and uncomfortable, are compelled to live upon a scanty allowance of food, clothe themselves and families in the coarsest fabrics, aod narrow'y escape the pitiable condition of those who have nothing to do. Farmers, manufacturers, mechanics, and merchants, once ia easy circum stances, have seen their bard-earned ac cumulations gradually pass away without power to prevent it, ad are now ia hope less bankruptcy, or stand trembling on tbe verge of financial ruia.

The man who electa himself to the Presidency by a vote which many others of his own party were too conscientious to give, will at least place himself in circumstances of well-founded suspicion, from which a man of the least self-respect or delicacy must shrink as from the utmost dis honor. Grant sjone Overboard. The present advocacy of Chase by the Herald is characteristic- A few dayi may bring some other man to view in similar prominence. And then that pa per will pronounce him the coming man forthe same reason. But one thing is cer tain, it now regarda Grant'i chances as very much diminished since he ceased, to be General Mum, and threw himself into the Radical harness- We extract as follows : What waa it that, a short time ago, made Grant leem the great inevitable man of the future? It was that he bad the respect and confidence of tbe people as against all parties. lie was a man standing alone broad, grand, national, and differing from all other men in notb ingssmuch as in that he stood aloof from party; and they were nothing without their peculiar party power. Urant was the national man. But what a change a few weeks have made. Grant, with all his silence, with all his cautious reserve, has said enough to satisfy Radicalism that he is a candidate to suit it; and by his relations to party men, by tbe readi nes with which be has fallen into Radi cal reconstruction plans, he is seen to be to-day the creature, the tool, if not tbe bond slave of tbe nigger supremacy tac tion. - Ei-Prisidest BucHiirasr has lately been very ill at Lancaster, Pa., with pleuro-pneumonia, but is now reported recovering. .

Rejected, 60 to 74. Mr. Benjamin moved -an amendment by striking out tbe hrst section ot the clause prohibiting tbe change in the courts, and inserting instead of it the words "The constitution of said State shall never be amended or changed to discriminate in favor of or against any citizen, or class of citizens, in the United States, in reference to the right to vote, who are entitled to vote by said constitu tion.
