FRIDAY, MAY 15, - I85SL thrtt effect hud been given to the Sergeant-at Arms. Htill no motion wes made by any person in th crowded galleries to leave: bis or brr seal. Senator SnERMAN, apparently Influenced by the same motives as Senator Coxnkss, ask ed the Chief Justice whether It was In order to move tbat the Senate retire for dcllbera. tion. If so. he would make that motion. . The CHIEF JUSTICE remarked, Inreply to ornator ohkkman, tbat until the onler to clear the galleries was enforced, the Senate could not.wilh self-respect lunke any other order. Senator SHERMAN expressed the opinion tbiet many persons in tbe galleries did not an. derstand that they were ordered to leave the galleries. , ' , 1 lie spectators showed themselves not at all disposed to tuke the hint, and nut one made a movement towards leaving. finally, tue UHihF JUSTICE Informed Ihe persons in the galleries that the Kenata had made an i rder for tbe galleries ta be cleared. and that it was expected that they would re spect Ihe order and leave the galleries. This direct appeal, bucked as it was by the ushers and police oflicers, had the ellW-t at least ef inducing the elegantly dressed ladies and their attendants to rise from their seats and move toward the door ; but they did so with evident reluctance and discontent. - Tbe spectators id the diplomatic gallery were not Interfered with, while the other galleries were being cleared ; but fiuully their turn came too, and last of all the representa tives ol the press were required to leave the reporters' gallery. . While this clearing out process was going on, and when all the diplomats and the re. porters bad left, Senator ANTHONY moved that the ordtr be suspended. 1 Senator HOWARD protested against tho suspension. ' Senator CONKLINO inquired whether tbe suspension of tbe order would open all the galleries to those who had been turned out. Several Senators remarked tbat it would have that effect, end Senator HOWARD continued to protest against the suspension of the order, and the motion was voted down. , , Senator MORRILL, of Maine, then submit ted tbe following order: . "OrJrrtd, That when the Senate lilting hr the trial of impeachment adjourn to-day, it will adjourn till Saturday next at 12 o'clock')" Senator CONNESS, seeing tha reporter of the Associated Press coolly taking notes of tbe proceedings, objected to any business being done until tbe order fur clear ing tbe galleries was fully carried out. i . Tbe reporters, yielding to the force of cir cumstances, departed, leaving the Senate chamber in tbe sole occupation of tbe Chief Justice, the Senators, the managers, the mem bers of the House, the President s couusel, and the oiicers of the Senate. f While the doors were closed, a motion of fered by Mr. MoaniLb, of Maine, to adjuurn the court until Saturday noxt Whs lost by tote of 22 to 29.1 la answer to a qnestio hy Air. Dosxlixo The CHIEF JUSTICE said it had not been his Intention to exclude the reporters, and that be was about to submit the question to the Senate when the Inquiry was made. Pending the consideration of the various orders in regard to the mode of voting and the admission of tbe reporters during the final deliberations, a motion to take a reenss prevailed, and, at 3 o'clock, the doors were thrown opt n to tbe public. It was some twenty minutes Deiore loe sen ate was again called to order. The CHIEF JUSTICE stated tbat be under stood the case to be closed on both sides ; that nothine: further was to be submitted. The next business ia ordei was the several Dendini propositions. .i Senator HK.MlKll KS snia ae oeiieveo tne questions now pending before Ihe senate were to be considered in secret session , but be would move that the Senate proceed, by unanimous eonseut, to consider them as if it bad retired.

Tbe Chief Justice thinks il proper to state to tbe Senate that that reverses its whole orer of proceeding ; but, if there Is n objeetloa, it eea bo done. Several Senators objected . . Tbe CHIEF JUSW'K stated the questioo to be on the motion of Mr. Hisobicis. Mr. EDMONDS moved as aa amendment that tbe doors he elosed. Mr. HENDRICKS.

Senate tbat Managers Uutler and Logan colluded with Jerry Black, aflrr tie imyraehinriil proceeding! had been commenced, In an endeavor to coerce Or scare bim (Johnson) into pursuing a certain course of action iu relation to the guano island of Alta Vela. Tbe facts of th case are simply these : Mr. Black thought tbe island of right belonged to company of Americans, bis clients, and they were wrongfully dispossessed ol it by a for eign power. Mnr.y other eminent lawyers think as Mr. Black does on Ibis subject. Andrew Johnson professed to think so, too ,' but hesitated lo act in the matter, because Mr. Sewnrd took an opposite view of tbe case, and further because be was apprehen sive that the Republican party would oppose the action he was desired, by Mr. Black, to take in the matter. Al this stage ef the pro ceedings, Mr. Black or one of bis associates called, at the suggestion uf Andrew Johnson, on Messrs. Butler and Logan, for their re spective professional opinions on the matter in dispute. These, it seems, corresponded with tbat of Mr. Black. All ibis 'oVor the attempted removal ol Stanton and tbe im peachment of Andrew Johnson. It was not till after the proceedings against the Presi. deut had been commenced, and Messrs. But ler and Logan had forgotten their slight pro fessionnl connection with the Alta Vela care which 1 have alluded to, that Mr. Black and tbe President same to words upon the sub. joct which resulted In the breaking up of their personal and professional relations. 1 is simply absurd to connect Messrs. Butler aud Logan with any attempt U bribe or over awe Andrew Jobnsea in this guano business In view of the change of administratloa now imminent, a responsibility of ao ordl nary magnitude attaches ta these about to assume the reins of power. If the interests of the country are to be conserved, tbe ira pcrative demand ia fot nothing less tbaa thorough and complete purging from office ofHie copperhead influence which has worm d itself in during Johusoo' administration It will be useless for us lo attempt to win victory if .we officer our troops from tba ranks of the enemy. Th secession senti ment here, as well as in many other parts of tbe country, is just as bitter and relentless as ia '60, previous to the breaking aut of tbe war, and this has been fostered and nour ished by tbe " policy " of th outgoing Pres ident, in appointing to places of power all over th country, and especially in tbe De partments here, men of known disloyal sent iments. Tbe supineness of tk Republican party in permitting this high-handed course, is, and has been, its standing reproach ; tor a little backbone ia tbe Senate would, bare. doubtless, saved us from many an appoint ment u not fit to be made." Anticipating th change which will undoubtedly 'take place within a week, persistent and active efforts have been made by copperheads to. secure appointments here, and a great num ber have been qnittly crowded into posttioas in tbe hope of thereby gaining a slams look- ing towards permruent possession. - If the new administratloa does not make a clean sweep of these enemies of . the country, th impeachment of Andrew Johnson will not only bar been a failure, but th defeat and disgrace of the Republican party will be assured. ' Tbe laccenlul results of th recent elec lions in the States of North and South Caro lina, Georgia and Louisiana, have been tbe cause of warm congratulations here among the Kepablicans la Congress, rew persons can realise the amount of hard work, per sonal suffering, and heroic courage which have been required and expended ia this great reconstruction struggle. Apart from the labor dene and Ibe sacrifice node by tbe Southern Unionists tbemselvs, th loyal peo ple bar d reason to congratulate themselves on tne existence her ol most valuable party machinery which has bees devoted to aidiag the southern loyalists. I refer to th "Union Republican Congressional Committee" which composed o( about thirty leading Senators and Representatives, ha bad, through it Executive Committee, charge of this great work. Tbe three hardest working men ia Ihe House General Scbenck, Judge Kelly and Mr. Broomall of Pennsylvania are on this sub-committee. The organisation was first effected by a Republican Congressional eancus, in March, lHtid. . During that year its attention was chiefly devoted to the North ern States, and to securing tbe control of the 40tb Congress to .th Bepnblieaa party. II distributed about three-quarters of a million documents, aad, at th same tisae, aegaa its preparation for tbe arduous duties sooa im posed upon it by Reconstruction. Tbouaaads of Bimes of loyal men, nnd others who might be reached in Ibe South, were catered la book kept for that purpose. Tbe earn of burean o Seers, friaadly army officer, seal and female teachers, prominent loyalists; ed itors, kc, were all recorded, so thai packages of radical document might he sent lo them for distribution. When lb reeoostraction act wer passed in March, '7, the Committee went a work and has kept hard al it ever since. . It Is apt loo much to say that the rescue of tbe Slate Governments of the South from rebel coarol aad placing them in the safe keeping of loyal men, is due maioly to tba untiring energy of this committee, which thoroughly organixed and systematised opera tioas. When th work began there were fifteen poor papers In Ibe Sooth sustaining Congress aad loyal ac tion. There was a Republican party ma chinery- in exieteae. How sanch aid th whites there weald give was uncertain, aad the manner in which th freedme would act, was a problem, lb successful solution ef which wes believed ia by hut few. What baa bee a accomplished Is aeea; it was accomplished I koowa only to llue who hare doaethe work. It cannot be. told la a few brief senteaees. Bat perhaps a sum mary of some ol the leading facts may help oae to realise It. The first thing was to effect local erVaaiaatioa. This was the great work of last summer. About two head red active' white and colored men were seat throughout the South. Party Coaventloaa wore held. Document were widely eircaleted. ft was found necessary ta prepare simple eP" especially for tbat purpose. Of oa a dia logue bstweea a Republicaa aad a colored maa -about half a millloa have be clr-.u-Uled. Th Bae. R. M. Turr, a colored elorgysssa and Stat fleaalor elect la OoorgU, was to aalaor. Col. It. J. Hiotos, Judge (desaads, Gov. Boatwtll, Col. Forney aad others prepared papers also, over a miinoa of these documeats, speeches, en., have ba distributed. From fifleee jouraals the floatb tit Republican press has grows lo ea kuo. dredand twenty, of which one-fifth are dail ies. Tbe expenses of speakers, ic, were in part defrayed by this Committee until the Conventions, ordered by Congress, assembled. Sine thea State Party Commfltees hare been aided from here, and have employed their own worxrrs oi wnom many able men, un known hitherto, have been developed.. Most of Ibe money by which this hns been done was raised in tbe North. ' In all it amounts lo something less than J(!U,00, of which abont one-fuuith has been contributed by members of Congress. Conventions have boon elected, have met and done their work In nine States. In six Alabama, Arkansas, North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana the Constitutions have been sub mitted acd ratified. . Four Stntea have suc ceeded. .The others will. The Texas Con vention meets at an early day. Virginia is th only -doubtful State. . By th middle of summer, eight at '.east of the "wayward sisters" will b restored to their places iu tbe Union household. In th great work done by the Union Re publican Coagresiional Committee, too much credit can not be given to tbe Secretary, Hon. Thomas L. Tollxk, formerly Secretary of State for New Hampshire. Noparly ever had a more faithful and untiring servant. He works daily at his desk for eight or ten hours. Wise, moderate and honest, 'his ad vice has been Invaluable.
