The rush of newt and men from the Capitol to the White House, on the result of the impeachment being ascertained, was ludicrous enough, and by the Cin cinnati Commercial it tbaa painted, without much burlesque: 4 It is astonishing how small things be come great, how trifles assume Import ance, in tremendous historical crisis. It is thought worth while to assure ns that the horses which whirled Messrs. Nelson and Stanbery over the intervening mile of eronnd were wet with loam and ridged with lashea. If those horses are not honored in some such special manner as the Roman Emperor honored his iavor ite steed, by. making it a consul, then ingratitude mast be imputed to Andrew Johnson as not the last of his bad quail ties. Kelson was under even greater strain than horse-flesh had been subjected to. lie was covered with foam, and there were no welts and ridges Visible, at least, unon bis oerson, but perspiration ran from every pore," ad there was momen tary danger of dissolution, with nothing left but soggy boots, steaming pantaloons and a wilted hat to testify that " once there was a man." Fortunately, the free use cf his bandanna and the cool air, rushing ia a high state of agitation through the passages and balls of the White House, prevented a catastrophe to which the case of spontaneous combus tion in "Jacob Faithful " would not have been a circumstance. Mr. Nelson, the Derspiration running from not more than half a million pores, hastened up the stairway into the hall fronting the Presi dent's room, using his lame leg with in tense energy, dragging the debilitated Mr. Slanberv after him. Our indefati gable "followed tbem closely," and when the door was opened to admit tbem, saw the President actually opening the tele gram which announced bis acquittal, and heard the loud voice of Mr. Nelson pro nouncing the memorable and ever after to be historical words, Well, tbank God, Mr. President, you are free again I" The door closed, and with it the oppor tunity of presenting to posterity a graphic, historical picture of what taok place within the four walls that shut in Andrew Johnson and his two friends and advisers. The imagination is left free lo conjecture what took place, and it will be mentally sketched according to each reader's preconceived ideas of the men and his familiarity with events behind the scenes. Whether Andrew produced Bible or a bottle, sang a Tt Dtum or took a drink, ran his fingers through Nelson's hair or put hig own nffection- ately about Stanbery'i neck, a la Stan ton the subject is so tuggestive that it were a PUT to spoil it by any attempt to fix the incidents. As, however, when our correspondent was admitted, there was a sly allusion to me secretary ol War. and laughter in which the Presi dent himself joinrd, we may fairly eon elude that "loathed melancholy" was not entertained by the President on that dtty. Toleration or Defeat. The natural tendency of a strife be tween the different wings of a party ia to increase lb bitterness and widen the di vergence until the organisation is broken up. I be more intelligent tne party it- sell the stronger is this tendency. It used to be said of the old Whigs that they individually knew altogether too much, and were too fond of their own opinion to pull well together and to be lung suc cessful. The Republicans have inherited this quality, and the attendant dangers with it Ia fact, the quality itaelf ha been exaggerated and the dangers in reased by the fact that the old disunion ists, like Wendell Phillips, have joined their opinionated egotism and their fierce intolerance to the other elements af oia- enrd, and it would be something sear a trade if such a combination ol ele ments should not produce great fer mentation, if ant aa explosion. Pour a little nitric aeid arra tome spirits of turpentine, and puff! I ill! black smoke is all that is left of tbem. W have ia the Republic party inflamma ble material oaoagb, and the last of the extremists is getting to b a good deal like aquafortis. -A little .mora coacen tratioa of the acid element will do the business- CieK-t"'t Commercial One day last week, Philip Wickert, of Rice, Ohio, had aa aching tooth failed.

TENNESSEE. FItlDAY EVENING. MAY 22. 1SC8. i The Omnibus Xaeonstruetloa DHL The bill to admit North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Louisi ana was rushed through tba House on the 14th with shameless haste.. .Stevens cut off all debate by calling for the pre vious question. The correspondent of the New York IFeWd gives the following briel but startling exposition of this pise of legislative villainy : , The call being sustained, the vol was taken on Mr. Stevens' amendment to de clare Ihe provisions of the Georgia con stitution, which repudiates private debts to date, and all like provisions in the other reconstructed constitutions, to be inapplicable to loyal creditors, and the amendment was adopted yea 78, nays SO !' The effect of this amendment will be to put it in the powsr of any creditor in the South who will swear long enough and hard enough that he always loved the old flag and was loyal to the Union only be was obliged to seem a secession1 isl, to drive a coach and four through the relief section of the reconstructed con stitutions to squeeze the last cent from his debtor who voted, poor dupe, for the bogus constitution because it promised to shield him. Bingham's amendment that there should be no discrimination in rights or privileges in the Stales so admitted against any class enjoying such rights by tbe reconstructed constitution was then adopted in lieu of Air. Stevens wording, tbat the Constitution should never he changed in the article of suf frage by 67 in the athrmative to 46 in the negative. Stevens voted no, and called lor the yeas and naji, which be failed to obtain, only sixteen sustaining the call, Tbe intended effect of Bingham s amendment is to neutral ixe the discretionary power over suffrage tba adoption of the fourteenth amend ment secures to State; but, as an act of Congress caunot take away what an amendment confers, Causidicus Uing ham's measure will not hold water. Mr. Brooks' amendment to make universal suffrage a condition precedent to admis sion, br which was meant to do away with the enormous disfranchisement of white men enacted by tbe bogus conven tions, was lost without a division, and the bill passed by a two-thirds vote yeas, 105; nays, 35 A Radical loss of five, and Democratic gain of three on tbe vote of the Arkansas bill. Taken all in all tbe passage of this bill is '' only second in enormity to the original enactment of the first reconstrnction act. All effort to procure information as the nature of these bogus constitutions, tne votes upon them in detail, or tbe enect of their work ing in the restoration of the South, were peremptorily repressed, and yet what little nas come to ugut opens a most ap palling vista of fraud, - corruption and fillainy in Ihe management of this whole business South.- Ihus, in South Carolina, Alabama, and Arkansas, tbe Legislature can keep up standing armies in time of peace, and in North and South Carolina and Arkansas children, irre spective ot color, are to be compelled to go to the public schools unless privately educated by their parents. In the Missis sippi Convention, now in the 17th day of its session, at a cost of a quarter of a million already, there are but nve white native Mississippians out, of tbe whole one hundred delegates, in south Laro lina there are sixty-five negroes iu the House and nine in tbe senate, and these ignorant creatures, who outnumber the whites on joint ballot, only pay $187 25 taxes, though their majority gives them full power of taxing all the property of the State. Fitty-seven ot these negroes pay no tax stall, and of tbe seventy white members thirty six pay no taxes either, and the balance of them only $368 80, so that the whole SoutbCarolina Legislature on'y pays $49G 65 of the taxes it is to im pose. Une ot tbe Arkansas senators, so called. it has been discovered, is from New York, and the other a fennsylvanian, and neither has been in Arkansas long enough to be fit for the position he fraud ulently seeks to fill. Tbe facts, as lately developed in tbe case ot norma, snov, tbat two bogus constitutions were framed in tbat State, one of them nnder a guard of soldiers furnished bv General Meade, and the claims of the respective adherents ot these republi can forms of government are so evenly balanced that no man in the House, neither Democrat or Radical, not even Thad. Stevens himself, could determine which was which. This uncertainty ex tends even to the vole on ratification, since some vote for one and some the other, and the confusion enveloping the whole affair, has led to tbe omission of Florida from the omnibus bill. But what of all this fraud if the rushing through of the bill to-day can bring in ten carpet bag Senators to vote for con viction. General Grant Vouched for Again. The following letter was read at the anniversary of the Anti-Slavery Society, in New York, the olher day: WasaiiOTON. D. C, May U. , Rev. A. M. Powell : , . Tell your triends ot tne anniversary that impeachment is sure to be success ful, in spite of the treachery of a few Re- pabhean Senators. .1 he vote is postponea until Saturday, on account of the sick nets of Senator Howard. We shall on that day have thirty six vote for convic tion, and that secures its success. There is a tremendous excitement at the capi tal, snore intense than that which pre vailed at tbe time of the adoption ol tbe imaeachment resolutions in the liouse. The imprecations heaped upon Trumbull, Grimes and Fvssenden are bitter and em phatic, and I do nnt envy tbem their position. Ibey Ota lair to r ciaaeea with the Arnolds and Ihe other traitors to the cause of frredom. General Grant is working hard with bis friends to aecare conviction.

ItiaXIS U XOtii. , i iSY'- N. -rr LAKUEMT ITT CIRCTJULTIOX. 1 Don't Xad Thm Oat. The Chicago Tribun, a sensible Radi cal paper, plead thus against denounc ing the seven Senators: Tbe convention has graver duties to attend to than tbe punishment of Sena tors who are not responsible to it, but otly their own constituents. It has to prasent a national platform and national candidates to th people to be voted for in November. Lyman Trumbull is a Senator of Illinois. If he has committed a breach of faith or duty, his offense is against th people of Illinois. He is responsible to tbem, and lo them alone. To take him out of the bands of his con stituents would be an act of imperti nence. If the National Convention can not trust this Stat with the duty of holding Senator Trnmbull to his respon sibility, and of meting out justice to him, tbe convention must fear that there is some doubt as to what the State will do with him at the proper time and place. Is it best that the convention should betray such a fear? Cannot the people of Maine be trusted with tbe duty ot punishing Mr. lessen den for any dereliction of duly ho may have committed? Do these hot heads want the Chicago Convention to attach to the nomination of Grant an anti Fessenden fight in Maine, an anti Grimes fig'it in Iowa, an anti-Henderson fight in Missouri, an anil-1 rumbull ngnt in Illinois? Will Gen. Grant thank them for piling this fight upon bim ? Is the Chicago Convention to exclude ressen den and all of Fessendon's friends from the Republican party in Maine; and is it to do the same in each ot the other six States represented br these seven Sena tors ? In what part of the " call " do the delegates find authority for such a pro ceeding? We insist that these Senators shall be tried by their own constituents, to whom alone they are responsible. Aoy inter ference between the representative and his constituents would be an act of gra tuitous folly and impertinence tbat could have no good lesuits.

The High Court of Impeachment.' The High Court of Impeachment has adjourned till Saturday, on the conve nieht pretext of a Senator's illness. Ad journment in the circumstances, means that the Radicals dare not encounter tne final trial. It means defeat. For some days the case has been desperate indeed with those prominent in the lead of this atrocious conspiracy, lbey had ceased in the effort to disguise their purpose; they had given tin' the endeavor to ap pear just; and their open defiance oi an it in the trial had caused tne revolt against them of the decent men in the Senate. Thereupon they began a ruf fianly assault on all who might vote again.t them. It was held that these men must bo driven into tbe traces one way or another, and for two ressons : First, because without them it was not absolutely certain there would be tne requisite number of votes; second, be cause, even if carried, it would not do to let it be seeo that impeachment had re corded against it Ihe vote of every Re publican ol known miegnty ana nigu ability in the United States Senate.

From th Cbarlaatoa Mercury, May 12.1 W mentioned some weeks ago that Captain Bjutelle, of tb United Slate Coast Survey, had discovered at Land's End, Port R jjal, at low water mark, th skeleton of a mastodon, and tbat with tbe enthusiasm for science characteristic, of his corps, he at once eommanicated the fact to Prof Sbepard.inviting bim and bis son, Dr. C. U. Sbepard, Jr . to assist bim in exhuming it with tb least possible damage to the entirety of these osseous remains. The huge aotedeluvian was unearthed and brought to this city, not in bis totality, but for a member af bis family be makes a decent enough appear-' aoce. A negro who assisted in tba ex humation, said that abost ten years ago he and others, while digging lor " marsh muck" in that vicinity, found a number of bones which doubtless belonged to this same Beaufort mastodon. This masto don was found in a stratum of fresh water marl, about four and a half feet in depth, thinning off toward the edge, showing that this was either th edge of the deposit or else a mere basin of fresh water mail The Boll of Dishonor. From th Chi go Republican (Had.). May 18. Below ia a list of traitors to (he cause of justice, whose names should be held in everlasting abhorrence by tbe loyal peo ple of the United States, aad to be trans mitted to their posterity as a heritage of scorn and detestation. Each of them is a political Judns who has shown himself nnscrapulous and monstrous enengb to band the fate of hi country over to the most iniquitous influences. Patriots, remember the roll of infamy when you proclaim your verdict on impeachment at the ballot-box: Joseph S. Fowler, of Tennessee. Wm, Pitt Fessenden, of Maine. James W. Grimes, of Iowa. John B Henderson, of Missouri. Edmund G. Ros, of Kansas. Lyman Trumbull, of Illinois. Peter G. Van Winkle, of West Tirgiuia. Browolow, th Patron Saint of Bavish.rs. During the war, Charles Davidson, a negro, committed a rape on a respectable young lady of Maury county, and was sent to the penitentiary for twenty-one years. The other day he was turned scot free by Brownlow.
