tor in artioie on lmpaaenment, wutco were
preseotsd la the Zloaa by tbe committee ap
pointed to draft tbam. An tntartitlng dtbata
sprung op -n both Uooses. In th Senate tba
rules, which ar to govern tbat bod dating lb
t m peach m ant trial, war under consideration
and In tba Hoa tbe articles of Impeachment
wtrt rtTtraiiy flODiiaereu,
After some unimportant builoess In the Sen
at tbat body proceed ad,
On motion of Mr. Howard, to th e on i Id era.
tlon of tb report of th setae t committee of
seven oa th subject of Imps aeb seat.
Tb question wbi Hated to b oa th adofitloa
ofthrali.
Ur. Johnion moved that aotlon ba taken oa
bach art (el separately, saying tbat Senators
might eonear la torn and object to others.
Mr. Davis moved to refer tb report back to
tb oomm.tt, with Instruction to retort a sub
stitute. It was read, ictllog forth that tb Constitu
tion bavlog provided that th Senate, to bo
composed of two Senators from each State,
should try lapsaehmnts, a&d erUin Statea
being onreprcMDlad, tbe Senate, while the war
excluded, eould not b formed Into a court uf
Impeachment under th Constitution to try th
President or th United Statss j
Mr. Davis surpoted that all would agra that
th State referred to are and condoned during
tb war to b States lo tb Union; and. It so,
be contended tbat thsy wsr entitled to rerr
sentatton In th Saoat. When It resolred tt
self Into a court of Impeaebment, It had been
turaataaad to axclade his own Stat from repre
sentation Mr. Jobnsoa said that whatber th rebellious
States wtr otUWd to rprevntatloB bar wi
a question open which be differed rrom the ma
Jotity, who, however, had dceided that they
war not, aod he considered tbat all should sub
mlt to that decision, Co ogress having passad
law In regard to those Statei roeogolied as
valid by all CsBartmenta of tb Government
Tb Senator from Kentucky (Mr. Davis el lined
tbat It waa naewary thai a majority or tb
Senators who woaid ba here. If all tb States
wer rprisatd, wag accessary to eonstltat
iBBteovn.
Mr. Davis aald bis toil Hon was that a ma.
Jorlty ef all lb Senator elected was requisite
ir. 4 0Dnion aiiia who iru to D in Judge
what Cnatera wer properly elected ? Th fifth
eetlon of tb first article of th Conitltutloa
gav that powr to oach beaa.
Mr. Davie ak4 wbathar th Judgment had
aot keen agklost th elevea SUtes la quastloo,
Bod not against pons Ietel by tho, ?
Mr. Johaton tald If th Senate eoald pro-
aonnc apon tb right of apenea applying for
admission, It eoald refsseto admit him because
b was sent by a body wbo bad a authority to
nd a Senator. Ha understood tb rqairmcnt
to b tbat a quo rata of the decided by tb
Senate to b properly lctd tho aid b present
n tb ocaaslon rrrrd to by tb Senator.
Whn Mvsirt. Foster antt Foot took tb con
trary view, tb Bcoat decided that question by
a large majority. If th Senator' position was
correct, everything don by Congress sloe th
rebellion tarmloatcd was void, and tha Supreme
Court and tb President bad misuodeistoed
thalr dalles. If, when tbey hO organised
themtelras Inte a court of Impeachment, tb
President or hi counsel should demar to tbelr
jurisdiction on this ground, and If, after arraign
ment by coons), b should ehange bia opinion,
b would set bed tat to say to. At present ba
thought tby ware a Senate, and as such a.
th riled to try th question of Impeachment.
Mr. Edmund called for th yea and nays on
tba motion of Mr. Davis, and It wa lost .

court itself. These roles did aot purport to be
a law. Under th Constitution be thought tb
Sen at eoald not go lo fart and h moved to
itttk out th 2lit paragraph of tb report
Mr Pom troy rtmloded th Senator that tbr
bad betn a proposition to consider tbe report
section by section,
Mr. Iindrlcks simply wanted to get an ex
Erenlon of opinion oa bli point that th Senst
ad ao power, as such, to do anything that might
be material on the trial, llathoogatthat quel
tlon should be first deeldsd
Mr. Sherman thought it obvious that tba pro
Eoiitlopof the Sioator from Maryland should
adopted. Nj doubt tha great body of the
article! would be adopted without question
Whan tho point raised by th Senator was
reached he would be glad to bear It dlicussed,
Tha Secretary proceeie'd to read tbe article,
to the fourth j when ,
Mr. Mortoa raised tbe point of order that by
th Ulrd and fourth article tb Implication
was made (hit tha Senate changed Its character,
and was no longer the Senat In becoming tbe

benate waa to try this case
There was sum further dtbat upon this sub
ject, when It w disposed of and tb Senato

thtre was considerable discussion, participated
In by several Senators, which lasted for some
