Tbe Radicals of Mississippi bare nomi nated for Governor and Lieutenant Gov ernor a couple cf verj precious rascals, whoso names are respectively Ergleston and Barry.

Tbe Lexington Adrertiter represents Barry as rather the blacker of the two, od aa only being a " thief, forger, liar and swindler."

" Instead of heirs; a recipient ef honor and emolument, of office from a credulous and unsuspecting people," says Gen. McBride, "he should have been eobsigned to a felon's cell." Gen. VcB very properly regard it a of the last importance that the newly enfranchised citizens of Mississippi hould select men of high character as their officers and representatives, " until all tbe links forming our chain of State re reunited, and their million, cf people returned to tbe shield of onr Republic."

Although ia moral point of view, and for the preirut moment great vic tory ba resulted in the acquittal of the President, we are far from feeling that be i ecure from the vindictive malice of hie enraged adversaries. To carry their nefariou cheme 1 yet in their power, and it would be unreasonable to uppose they would not use that power. To refuse to consider the remaining ar ticles, and so keep Mr. Johnson from bis nndoubted right to a verdict of ao will be nothing in their i 1 - estimation.

But how will that make any difference, when three-quar ters of tbe then Senate will go into the trial determined to convict? , We do not feel that the President is out of the woods. He is safe, indeed, from the present Senate. But a new trial may be easily inaugurates, with new Senators, in which acquittal will be impossible. So far as bis individual fate is concerned, his friends-may, therefore, well entertain fears, i;oc his foes will pursue him with out scruple. . But in doing so, we may at least congratulate ourselves that they must sink under a new and still more damning disgrace. As they are begin ning to tall out, mere is uupe they will go to piece. They will be dethroned if there ia remaining virtue in the American people, and it i not pos sible the nation should sink under the rule of iti least intellectual as well as basest men. If, through a Democratic victory next fall, we do not return to the old principles and paths of our fathers, Mexico, Briil, Spain, Turkey or China will be a preferable home for all worthy men and citizens of this country. Beaat Battles'. Xow that the Radicals are turning their batteries on the most talented Re publican leaders, and that the noble Ro mans, Fessenden, Henderson, Grimes and Trumbull, who link us with tbe times of Senatorial integrity, are denounced as corrupted and bought, the Northern papers are beginning to bring out in full view some of the pecadilloes of the Radi cal leaders. The catalogue of crime, hen complete, will be blacker than the depth of damnation. We copy the following single item from the Cairo Democrat : , There is now on file, ia the Secretary of WarOSce, sworn testimony which "for the good ot tbe service was sup Dressed when taken to tbe effect that Gen. Butler was in shameless business communication with the neighboring rebel forces under Gen. LovslL B. F. Smith, then and now a prominent Uoion man and old citizen of Sew Urleacs, testified that he and Col. A. J. Butler, Ben's brother, supplied the demands of Loveil' army for salt, shoe, gro ceries, liquor;, corn and quinine, and that to lacilstate transactions uenerai Butler placed five schooner at their Smith and A. J. Butler's) service. realizing as his share, one-third of the profits, which during tbe short period of twenty-four days, amounted to 1 13,000. Cpon the payment of this amkunt the General declared that the compensation was not equal to the begird, and ordered that no more goods should go out unless cotton (which was then selling within rebel lioes for ten cents and in New Or- eanc for forty-fire cents), was returned n payment. Ihe nrst shipment ot goods under this order was valued at about $13 000. for which was re turned 96 bales of. cotton, which sold for t30O00. Tbe rebels paid for salt at thirty dollars per sack with cotton at ten cent per pound, la all these ransactioos tbe Beast was consulted, nd in most instances they were shaped nlirely by his suggestion. This illicit communication was kept np during a period of seven weeks. Five weeks of the time General Butler received one third of tbe profits, when, entertaining a proposition from Lieut Col.

In the Senate yesterday the ooast sur vey renort was Dresented. and also a cor rected ropy of the constitution adopted by the Virginia Convention. ' lndehmte leave ot aoeence, at me in stance of Mr. Edmonds, was given Mr- Grimes on account of illness. ' A number of bills were presented for reference. . Tbe act making an appropriation to supply tbe deficiency ia tbe appropria tion tor executing tne reconstruction laws in 'the Third Military District was passed. Mr. Drake moved, as privileged question, to reconsider the vote by which the Senate refused to concur iu the reso lution for an adjournment until the 23th instant, and, after a discussion, the House was requested to return it to the Senate. Mr. Harlan rose to a personal expla nation, and read an extract irom tne Washington correspondence of the Balti more n, giving the substance of a dis natch from Mr. Harlan to Bisbon Simp son, saying that "Brother Willey is lost" (laughter), and also a reply from Bishop Simpson, saying, " Brother Willey is a Christiao, and cannot palter with his soul; pray with Brother Willey. Mr. Harlan said that in justice to that Sena tor and himself be desired to say that there was not a word of truth in it, as be ad not bad a word of correspondence with Bishop Simpson since the impeach ment was commenced. The concurrent resolution having been returned by the House, Mr. Trumbull favored postponing it, and called up the II lor the admission ot Arkansas. Mr. Dixon thought it inadvisable to Sard an opportunity for raising tbe question of the Arkansas Senators' right to vote on impeachment. . T Mr. Fessenden said it was not con ceivable that any Senator would be so lost to shame as to present these gentle men's votes on the subject of impeach ment, in case they were not admitted, and advocated taking up the bill, and said that be thought if that were done itb then other business would be done, nd that be was, in any event, opposed to an adjournment. The Senate finally refused to take up the b'tll, by a vote of 1$ to 24, and agreed to adjourn from this evening pntil the 25th instant, by 23 to It. In the House, bills were introduced lor reference, as follows: , For constructing an act for the col lection of abandoned property, and tbe prevention ef fraud in the insurrection ary districts. Proposirg an amendment to toe uon- stitution of the United Slates, making foreigners, who have been residents of his country tourteen years, eligi.ie to the Presidency. A bill for the construction ot a tele graph line, under the direction - of the Postoffice Department, from Washing ton to New York, and appropriating 75,000 therefor.

Bteuens. saia iua ue.uo seems to be to influence the Senate, and show it how to vote," and characterised the attempt as " disgraceful and inde cent" The resolution was adopted. Lata from Washington. By the special of the Louisville Courier we have the following to the evening of the 17th: Notwitstanding the adjournment ef the mneachment trial, the excitement is un diminished, but the Radicals have aban doned all hope of conviction on the re maining articles. Butler denies that they would be with drawn, as has been rumored, but snys the vote would be taken on th 26th of May, and on recreant Senators most rest the responsibility of defeat He felt assured that the Chicago Con vention would read them out of the party. Their anger at Ross' defection is with out bound. Tbey charge him with being bought by money, and swear they can prove it, and against him and Henderson the managers' resolution is directed. . They swear Ross deceived them, which may be true, else the vote would not have been taken. Three Radical dele gations visited his lodging Friday night, and even Grant spent three -hours with him, not leaving bis room until two o'clock Saturday morning, but all in vain. The others will bite against a file if thev dare carry ont tbe investigation. It will fail as disastrously as impeach ment- The Radicals were terror-stricken by tbe rumor that Grant would decline the nomination because of tbe failure of conviction, and be did make such de claration a few days since, and out of it have grown theso reports. He assured a Senator to-night that he had written no such letter. The truth is, he is as mad on the subject of tbe Presidency as Ste vens an impeachment or Sumner on ne gro questions. He don t intend to risk anything, lor he aon t intend to resign his present position pending the election. The report that Clime visited Johnson yesterday is a lie of Forney's In view ot tne nopeiessness oi im peachment, Stanton has been consulting with other conspirators about giving up the War Office. The President said to a Representative yesterday the names of tne men in the Senate who yesterday dared to do right n defiance of tbe pressure of their party vould be written in history in letters of gold. There are rnmers of changes in the Cabinet shortly; that the present mem bers will retire, to be succeeded by men decidedly conservative iu opinion, but of eminent worth, and such as will com mand the confidence of the whole coun try, and that thev will be selected with out regard to party as a peace offering to the President s implacable foes. This is stated as a rumor. Tbe impeachers connted on Ross, and were dumbfounded at his defection. Impeachment is dead. Johnson is virtually acquitted. Radicalism has gope to , and tbe country is safe. Io Tri- mpne- From dawn until late in the night of tbe 16th the city has been the scene of intense excitement, such as was never witnessed before and will never be again. At an early hour the Senate Chamber was literally packed with men and oWien. Amhonv's vote of "guilty" was fol lowed by a buzz in tbe galleries, but no loud demonstration. Cameron said "guilty before the Question was concluded oy tne miei v i j : l J ustice. nverjuuuj jinru. When Fessenden's name was called that Senator rose and stretched bis tall form to its full length and stood erect. He placed his thumbs in his pants' pockets, listened to tbe reading of the questions by the Chief Justice and re sponded in clear, ringing tone, " not uiliy. F.iwler reneated his vote of "not guilty," as tbe first was not heard dis- Hendersou rose nervously at the call. He bad expressed no opinion on the leventh arti'le, and when he said "not guilty, tbe t residents irienas ureaiaeu freer. Intense hut soppressedexcitement was Ir when Ross' name was called for. On his vote depended the fate of the Ex ecutive and country- "Not guilty, be said and consternation seiced on tne conspirators- It made no difference how Willey and the other doubtful Sena tor voted, for Ross secured acquittal on the artido and impeachment was dead. The vote being announced, the reason for voting first on the eleventh article be came apparent Tb conspirators knew il this could nor. secure conncuuu, mo measure was defeated, and to prevent acauittal they now movea io yurapoue . - ' i i i i . l - . : i th he vole on me oaianco m mu hich, after fillihuntering, was carried The cowardly doc Re to evade the issue rovoked contempt from all ; but the un- ecruro'ons majorny were imt-ni fiml breaking the force of the result, and then wanted more time for trickery.
