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

articles, tbe defeated Fenelore shoa'd

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. , , , .

The Chicago Tribune (Radical), in
aatwer to abase for sustaining the seven

We know the men who are egging on

Should the President be acquitted, will
anv of the recreant Senator! whe vote to
sustain bis crimes inform ut what it to
prevent him from annulling every las
passed by Congress relative to recon
struction. 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.

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.
