on ail sides, when partisan prejudice
docs not obscure judgment, aii ac
knowledge, has f-hown that "tho wise
and philosi.phic purpose of the trainers
of the constitution was to keep the
several great departments of the gov
ernment as distinct and separate from
each other as possible, to the cud that i
t.eit her should invade the functions of;
the other or usurp the powers of that
other in order to strengthen itself, und
erect a centralized despotism on the
foundations of the republic." The his
tory of tho formation of the govern
ment amply sustains these views.
Other gentlemen of the legal profes
sion on this side of the Chamber,
among tho ablest of the House, have
shown bow utterly destitute of a de-
cent semblance of legal support is this
legislative assault 1 was about to miv
conspiracy, but that mijht imt bo par
liamentary, ami I therefore term it
assault upon a constitutionally co-ordinate
branch of tho government.
With theso arguments upon the legal
aspect of this question tor, as excep
tional eases in the debate so far, they
do inde?'1 rise to tho dignity ot argu
ment I feel that tlie conservatives
may safely go before the people, our
masters, and, gentlemen of tlie radical
party, your masters as well.
Rut, in addition to the impregnable
positions taken by able members of the
legal profession, we have the unerring,
sober second thought of the people
upon which to rely for a righteous
judgment upon what you are doing
here this day. Hope not to escape
that judgment. Clothe tho pretended
offense ot the President in what garb
of language you may ; envelop it if you
will in clouds of pompous and stilted
lexicographical mystification, still will
it not escape the discernment of the
people. As littlo wiil lio popular
judgment fail to perceive the motive
that prompts this prosecution in form,
this persecution in fact.
Feeling that, in common with "all
the people of tho United States," in
whose name the perpetration of this
great political crime is audaciously
and most tin warratttably to be urged,
we must beur our sftfre of the national
shame which even the attempt without
the consummation must bring; and, in
common 'with all mankind, our portion
ot tlie incalculable injury to repuniicair
institutions that r..ist be involved in
this measure, if, in God's wrath
against this nation, it should become
more than an attempt, the little band
of Democratic licprescntatives with
which it is mv pride to -be numbered
and associated ou this floor have op -
pose.l thi.s utirifriitt'ous Movement Aep
iy step. tJul-numhereil, our rights as
a minority trampled upon, every har
rier established in the rules; of the
House by our predecessors for our pro
tection swept away at the behest of
party impatience or party convenience,
we cannot prevent, and under the rc
ef nl'vi emasculated rules of the House
we cai. no longer even post pone, this
wrontj. It is destined to prevail solar
as this House is concerned.
Tlie best interests of the country
must undoubtedly sutler by an afiirma
tive vote on the ip.iestron I.elore us.
But within an hour this House will
pass, the articles of impeachment.
Commerce, manufactures all the inter
ests of labor, mechanical and aricul

Article o. Tho President, on the 21st

Abraham Lincoln and JeiTorson Davis.
Lincoln and Pavis were the chief
tains of contending principles and
communities. The first was the head
of the Federaiistie element, tlie other
of State Sovereign I eniocracy. By the
power cd' numbers, the one triumphed
and the oilier fell, so far as principles
may be said to fail by tho defeat of
armies. The one was an unsettled,
shifting, vulgar, rollicking man the
other serious, grave, dignilied, and de
termined. Ineonewas a pleuia i by
nature the other a nobleman. As be
tween thc-.-o contestants as men, the
rise and fall of armies have done little
less than to bring them out into strong
er contrast. The triumphant party is
now detid he fills the grave ot' an un
wept tyrant, and will be execrated the
more as the wheels of time roll on,
fanning tho chaff from the wheat.
Lincoln cared nothing for tho triumph
ot principle he was satisfied with the
din and clash of the hour. And so, at
the sacrifice of principle and tho na
tion's honor in a hundred ways, ho tri
umphed over his opponent. What are
the results secured hy that bloody tri
umph ? What questions are settled ?
Tint States are further from union now
than ever the people are bound under
a monstrous lad of oppressions and
tyrannies, and are at last, and not un
expectedly, cursing the being whose
triumph was their ruin ! How stands
his opponent? Bowed with the sor
rows of his people, he may still stand
erect over tho grave of his dead fee,
and exclaim, "Shako not your 'gory
locks at me ;" "Thou did'st. it !" Had
Jefferson llavis sacrificed those princi
ples upon which his people went info
tiio struggle, tho arrogant. North, and
not the South, would be tho stricken
land. Had Jefferson Pavis departed
from his determined "defensive war
fare," had he enlisted the slaves of the
South in Irs armies under the flag of
emancipation in t'ill, the North would
have been a smoking slaughterpen '.
Hut the banner of his people had been
thrown to the breeze, and under its
waving folds he. and his people fell to
gether in a Spartan embrace? His
tory will yet vindicate tho truth, and
Jefferson Davis, tho statesman, schol
ar, hero, will outlive a hundred Lin
coln's on those pages of his country's
histor-, where arc enrolled tho names
of the peerless and true, the noble and
self-sacrificing '. Sentinel-on-thr Border.
St. Louis & St. Joseph railroad. Our
advices from Buchannan are that that
county will vote their ?100,000 sub
scription with ease. The people there
are determined to build up St. Joeph
and make it the great city on the Mis
souri river. Leavenworth and Kansas
City are giant efforts for the champi
onship. The surveyors will bo in the
field shortly to permanently locate the

St. Joseph will offer inducements for

have painted the soul rather than the

'T am not sure of that," said he: "at

"Who was he? W here could ho be

'He does not paint any more. At

Anything with a touch of romantic
mystery about it had always a charm
for me, and so I prepared to hear the

full justice to his artist perception of
the beautiful in making choice of Ca

of C' dor, flushing at times through its
marble paleness to keep you from be

some old Creek statue. In the veiy

never essayed to portray it. Not but

whenever ho had half determined to
put bis thought in practice an umlo

Something akin to superstition seemed
to be a necessary part of such a nature
as Paul's, and in him it was somewhat
stronger than usual.
"Now, however, that Camilla was
going away ; now that he could no
longer daily feast his eyes upon the
lovely original, he so far overcame his
unreasonable reluctance as to ask her
to sit to him for a likeness.

dwelling upon one idol for which his
'cliapal of art' was a shrine. Still, as
he gazed upon it again and again, a
strange feeling of almost shuddering
uneasiness would at times come over
him. In vain he sought for its cause,
either in his own mind or in the pic
ture. Certainly every line of that
sweet face was truthful, and ho had
even ventured to transfer tothecanvus
the smile of love with which bhe had
watched him at his labor.
"The feeling grew upou him, until he
was half inclined to hate that which he
had at first very nearly worshipped.
"Letters came and went, and Camilla
wrote enthusiastically of her enjoy
ment of all the treasures of art which
the Old World has inherited from the
past. For a long time she seemed to
studiously avoid any allusion to the
picture, but at last a letter arrived da
ted at Home, in which, after dwelling
with feverish and somewhat extrava-
:ant elo'iuenco upon her experiences in
the Eternal City, Camilla adjured her
lover to semi her the jwtrait at once,
" 'I o not fail,' said she, 'if vou love
me. I cannot explain mysen, out i

"The letter closed with more tnan

i her request, lie was almost surprised
at himself to find that he did so with
so little of real reluctance.
"'Ah,' he thought, 'her face is so
clearly painted on my memory and on
my heart that I do hot need any re
minder.' "And so the picture was sent. Ca
milla was still at liome when tho cove

than for all the art-treasures in Rome.
"There was a fire in her room, for
the day was of that raw and chilly kind
which ushers in tho Italian winter, and
Camilla had always been sensitive in
matters of temperature. Sh sat cow
ering before it, alone, and tho negli
gence of her toilet accorded well with
the troubled and mournful expression
of her face. Her c heek were flushed,
atnl the long folds of her hair fell heavi

" 'Will it never come,' she murmured.

"Here she was interrupted by a low
knock at the door, and a servant enter

lingered a moment, as if w ith a hope
that her curiosity would bo gratified
with a sight of its contents.

"She stirred the glowing coais with
nervous energy for a moment, and then
the picture, with its slight and grace
ful frame, was laid, face downward, up
on the consuming mass. For a few
moments it smoked, crackled, and bla

And so, since his party and the money
sharks formed a conspiracy to destroy
the American constitution, to revolu

whole people to slavery by means of a
great debt fraudulently contracted, we
have thought it advisable to imitate hi
example so far as to spp'y it to s no

there is not substance enough in the
country- to pay its honest debts and
leave anything for his pet bondhold

Don't pay-your-honest-debts party,
while he is at the same time the organ
of those who first rob tho people and
then make the people pay the robber
in gold for performing the "loyal" job.
