Honor to Honesty and Courage. From tb New York Sun (Rep.) Partr feeling is. a good thins when it il based on sincere patriotism, and is guided by wisdom ; but tbe extreme vio lence displayed by some of tbe partisan journals in regard to the result of tbe imoeauhment trial must be condemned at excessive and unjustifiable. Take for instance the following extract from tbe Albany Evening Journal: "Four men are responsible tor this great wrong, and upon them tbe insulted and outraged nation will put the heavy burden of iti condemnation. Messrs. Fessenden, Trumbull, Grimes and Hen derson may excuse, with whatever pre texts they oan find, their refusal to meet tbe demands of justice, and perform the solemn duty imposed npon them. But the naked, indisputable, and damning fact remains, that they have betrayed tbeir trusts, have forfeited their honor, have violated the eath which each of them took, have forfeited their reputation for consistency and fidelity to principle." Un tbe other band, consider tbe solemn words with which Senator Feseenden con eluded hisopinion delivered in the secret session of the Senate on Monday last : Tbe people nave not beard tbe evi dence as we have heard it. Tbe respon sibility is not npon them, but npon ns. They have sot taken an oath to do i m par tial justice according to the Constitution and tbe laws. 1 nave taken that oatn ; cannot render judgment npon their con viction, nor can they transfer to them selves my punishment if I violate my oath. 1 should consider mysell node' serving of the confidence that the just and intelligent people imposed upon me this great responsibility, and unworthy a clace among honorable men, if, for any fear of publio reprobation, and for Hie sake of securing popular favor, 1 snould disregard the coaviction of my judgment and my conscience. Tbe consequences which mar follow, either from conviction or acquittal are not for me, with my con victions, to corrsider. Ihe future is m the hands of Him who made and governs the universe, and the fear that lie will not govern it wisely and well would not excuse me for a violation ef His law. Tbe enraged journalist, from whom we hare Quoted tbe above denunciation, con ulers that tbe oath ot the Senators binds them to judge in the case, not as the law and the evidence shall seem to them to require, but as the mass of Republican voters and newspapers nave determined for them beforehand. No matter what are their real convictions they must not enter a verdict in accordance with tbem, unless that verdict should also meet the nnroval of tbe throng outside of tbe courtroom. Ibe failure to see the case as it is seen by partisans and party jour nals, and tbe daring to express tbeir real sentiments and to give tbe judgment of the party, is regarded as a damning fact, proof It at tbey bave betrayed tbeir trusts, forfeited their honor, and violated their oath t What Would Conviction Have BeeaWorthl Let us suppose that the Radical con- piratora at Washington had succeeded n winning s verdict ot condemnation, what value would such a verdiet have had 1 Tbey failed to secure a verdict by the judicial trial Tbe people saw that, nd that as a question ot law ana evi ence. of justice and fair dealing, the im peaebment cause was lost Tbe conspir ators and their outside auxiliaries then seoutcd tbe pretense that it was a judi cial Droceedinu. and resorted to the cor rupt tactics of partisan political proceed ings to secure verdict. Such a verdict would of coarse carry no moral weight It would imply.no moral guilt oa Ibe part of ibe accused. It would have been the mere judgment of a political party avirg temporary power which is onset by the jndgmeotof tbe opposite political party. But every judicial element woald be stricken oat of such a judg ment, while those conniving at it would cover themselves with infamy, since they per verted a solemn judicial proceeding lato party instrumentality, and seduced atea to perjure themselves It was coward'r ahd otherwise de gracelnl that, afier appointing Saturday as the titM to Uke the vote epna all tbe articles, tbe defeated Fenelore shoa'd have slunk behind aa adjournment lor tea days the an ore cowardly aa the ad- joarameat itself was a complete eon ten sion of disco aaniare.

Tbe New York WorUtt Washington letter of tbe 16ib, after alluding to tbe fierce denunciation of tbe seven "re1 oreant," Senators, eayt ; '. ,. ' It is onbtushingly asserted that what has hten done or said against them is as nothing to what will happen as toon at there are enough of the carpel-bag Sena tors ia to enable the majority to dis pense wite their vote. Tbe original ia tenlion of having them formally read out of the party at Chicago bat been so far reconsidered that lair fuoe it ' to be borne toward tbem aatil tbey may have aided to override the veto, whion it it taken as a foregone conclusion the Pretident wilt give both the Arkansas and omnibus reoonttruction bills. This service once received at Iheir hands it will be war to the knife. By the time those Southern States in which bogus eonstitutiont have been framed, Awa. in alt v . t rr. 1 1 . I 1 1. Senate will consist of sixty eight mem bers, two thirds will be forty-six and Ibe tbirfy-five Senators voting to-day for conviction, with the fourteen carpet baggers added, will show an unbroken front of forty-nine votes, or three more than the required two thirds. . To secure this new lease of power, the vote of tome one of the recreant Senators at they are kindly termed will be necessary, and whoever gives this vote will, by that act, at once doom himself and the six who acted with him to-day to the certain fale of ostracism from the party. ' 8eeing this, it it thought here that the veto of the reconstruction hills stands fair chance of not being overriden, as also tbe veto of any other measure which would give tbe conviotion Senators tbe opportunity of reading out the recusants of to day. ' , The Elsvsnth Artiole.' 1 ' At the caucus of tbe Radical members of the High Court, held at Senator Pome roy't on Friday night, to concert mra- Kures to secure the conviction of the President, it was resolved that tbe Court should first vole on the eleventh Article of tbe impeachment series, as the one most probable to receive the needed number of votes to convict Tbis article waa the straw the drowning unpeachert grasped aU It wat hoped ,tOi secure a technical conviction on if, although it was the weakest straw of the whole bundle. When first proposed in tbe Honfce, it was rejected as wholly imma terial and absurd, and it was only the pertinacity of Toad. Stevens that at last procured its adoption against the judg ment of a majority of bis associates. Since the close of the evidence on the trial the managers themselves, in their harangues before the Court, virtually admitted that it is only on the main charges of the removal of Stanton, the appointment of Thomas, etc., the Presi dent can be convicted, and that the others must fall to tbe ground. Yet, on Saturday morning, when they found that the requisite number of Senators) were not prepared to pronounce Andrew Johnson guilty of any of these high crimes and misdemeanors, they trusted to the very vagueness and absurdity of the eleventh article to induce them on that to reverse, their judgment. Tbeir buccess has not been encouraging, and tbey may well delay a "vote on the other articles, for not one of them will com mand as many votes as did the vague statement of the eleventh article. Pittsburg Pott. ' Th Consequences. The conviction and removal of the President, and the succession of Wade hv his own vote, after the eartisan clamor that had been exacted front one end of the country to the other, for the purpose of influencing tbe High Uourt, would have been the greatest possible blunder, in a party sense, that the Radicals oould have committed. It would have been worth all the doubtful SUtes, if there are anv such, to the Democrats in the Presi dential election in November.' Acquittal, of course, will not leave tbe Uadical party unarmed. The damage done to the battered hulk of radicalism by the original blunder in impeaching must be verv arrest, but it will be minute in com parison to the consequences that would have followed an unjust and outrageous conviction, such as that brought by Beast But er and his subordinates. Acquittal leaves the Radicals less vulnerable to Democratic assaults, than would im peachment Tbey can 'now be assailed for attempting an unparalleled outrage, but not for having consummated, it, Conviction would also bave rendered iti 11 more the irreparable breacb-in tbe ranks of the Republicans themselves. On the whole, the Radicals have much to be thankful for in tbe vote of Satnr day. They will bave , enough of sins nolitical. moral and social, to answer tor, before tbe really Grand Inquest of the nation in November, aethe case stands. Tbe removal of the President would bave swamped them beyond all hope of resnr- rection. fituourg i'ott. , , , . Knowing Hit Jfa.

Tbe acts providing for new State governments he vetoed on tbe around that they were unconstitutional, If the Senate concedes, with Mr. Grimes, that he is the higher authority on this point, he has only to declare void tbe military bill, recall the department com manders, dissolve and disperse the south ern legislatures, and summons new legis latures to be elected by tbe white vote only. If Gen. Grant refuses to issue or transmit such orders, the President may onul the bills placing the control of the armv under Grant, and order him to re nort for duty at Galena. Illinois. Hav- og had new State governments elected in the Swth on the while vote only, he may call especial session of Congress, and by military force require it to admit tbe Southern Senators from his Johnson iaed srovernments to their seats. The acaoittal of Johnson is but the beginning of the storm. Each acquittal heretofore has only nerved bim to com mit acts whioh more resolutely defied -Congrest and the people, and invited punishment. He will not fail to do the same hereafter. ' Grimes, Fessenden, Henderson, and Trumbull must prepare to share tbe blame of a complete revolu tionary subjugation of Congress to the President, and a nullification and lorci ble resistance to all tbe laws he bas vetoed, and an ejection of all officers. including Gen. Grant, wbo have incurred bis displeasure. Get down, noble Sena tors, therefore, into the dust. Go at vour work of eating dirt as if you like it. You will hare too much of it to do to make any ado about it at tbe outset. The Trial and Basult. Tbe Pittsburg Post thus truthfully and appropriately speaks of the impeachment case: Ibe great result is in no tense a partisan triumph. . It is a ruling of the wise and good-men of both parties over the powerful and destructive Radical element that rules tbe legislature of tbe nation with wicked violence and fright ful excess. Before the tremendous issues involved, the personal merits or demerits Of tbe President are lost tight ot He wat not on trial, in reality, but rather the permanence and stability of oar Government tbe independence of its co-ordinate departments and above all, the purity of judicial proceedings from partisan and fanatical clamors were the great questions involved. We can forget Johuson in the great principles he repre sented in thia trial Rut while we exult in no partisan sense, it is a proud thought to Demoerats that, united with iheir representative Senators, in this vindica tion dT the great principles of constitu tional government, were the noblest, the best, and tbe purest of the opposition ; men whose abilities we have long re spected and conceded, and who, in sep arating themselves in the hoar of trial from tbe horde of Jacobins that consti tute Radicalism, have shown the courage of heroes and the honest faith of Chris tians.
