and corruptly continued said Evans In bis posi

tions, trials and judgments may be had and given

Kitolcrd, That seven managers be appointed
by ballot to conduct the impeachment exhibited
against Wm. W. Belknap, late Secretary of War
of the United States."
The Komisation of Mr. E. H. Dana.
The Dana case for confirmation as Minister to
England was yesterday the next topic of conver
sation to the articles or impeachment against
General Belknap. There was no lack or expres
sion of strong opinions, and no substantial excuse
lor tbe candidate. It was urged by those who
knew most about It that the very Insolent letter
he sent to the Senate was based upon Information
received through a dispatch to a Boston paper,
and that any correspondent might be mistaken
lor once, and that a special dispatch lsedrloar'
evldecce. Mr. Dana prides himself upon his
sneestry and literary, legal and diplomatic at
tainments. It would not have been so bad. If he
bad rested bis ease upon tbe dispatch referred to,
only for tbe fact tbat he asked to be heard before
the Committee on Foreign Relations. The com
mittee granted the request, and waited for him a
week. Why Mr. Dana at tbe end of the week's
grace should undertake. Instead of meeting and
explaining the record or the Circuit Court of the
United States against him, when he bad disor
ganized the business or the committee, to excue
himself from appearing on the ground that tbe
committee bad already prejudged bis case, is
hardly apparent, except upon tbe theory that be
conld sot explain away the decree or Justice
Clifford and his own college classmate. Judge
It stems strange to many Senators that Mr.
Dawes upholds Mr. Dana in the contest. It can
rot be forgotten that Mr. Dana wrote a elronlar
during tbe Dawes Senatorial canvass In Massa
chusetts. In that circular Mr. Dana said In
substance tbat Mr. Dawes was unfit to be a Sen
ator or the United States on account of bis
Identification with the Credit Moblller scheme.
The position of the matter before tbe Senate
was tersely expressed by a gentleman perfectly
familiar with the case when he said yesterday
In the Senate tbat if Mr. Dana's statement con
cernlng Mr. Dawes was true the latter was unfit
to be a Senator, but if Mr. Dana's statement Is
untrue, as It unquestionably Is, then Mr. Dana Is
unfit to be a Minister to England, and should sot
receive Mr. Dawes' vote.
Tbejudgesoftbeconrtarenot alone In their
opinion of tbe evidence against Mr. Dana in the
Lawrence-Dana case, as the following extracts
from letters or Proi. Abdy, of Cambridge Unt.
verslty, England, and Chancellor Walworth, of
New York, will show:
Professor Abdy says, In writing to Mr. Lw.
reset: "I have read tbe pleadings and argu
ments In your suit against Mr. Dana, and I have
also looked at his edition or Wbeaton, and I must
say tbat of all the cool proceedings In tbe way of
literary piracy 1 have beard or road of that Is
the coolest. 1 dp most cordially hope tbat ere
this comes to hand you will have received
substantial justice lor the Injury Inflicted upon
Chancellor Walworth says: "Throughout the
edition It will also be found tbat many of Mr.
Lawrence's notes have been used, in substance,
by the editor, though be has attempted In most
ot these cases to cover the piracy by carefully
changing the language of Mr. Lawrence's notes.
In several cases, however, he has servilely copied
the very language ot the note. Bat he has eopled
some of Mr. Lawrence's references to letters and
documents, which letters and documents had
seTer been published nor referred to except in
Mr. Lawrence's copy rlgbted notes."
The charge In that suit was "that Mr. Dana's
notes were, in great part, taken and copied from
those or the complaisant, Mr. Lawrence. The
respondent, Mr. Dana, totally denied tbe same
ana every part thereol."
It however appeared that out of two hundred
asd twesty.sine or Dana's nous only forty-six
were original, and that eopled from Lawrence, Is
whole or In part, were one nnndred and forty, and
from Phlllmore, Halleck and others forty-tbree.
Mr. Dana'a testimony was : "I am sure no In
stance will be round throughout my work or my
having either authorized the printer to print a
word irom Mr. Lawrence's own matter, or of bar
Ingsentblmaword of Mr. Lawrence's prist of
any description whatever."
The conclusion of tbe court, after a careful
comparison of Mr. Dana's defense with the facta
and circumstances adduced, was that It was sot
"of a character, speaking generally, to rebut the
particular proofs ot the complainant, to which It
was Intended It should be applied." The result
of the trial. Involving great labor asd expanse,
both to Mr. Lawrence asd Mr. Dana, was that
Mr. Dana was convicted.
It was expected that there would be as execu
tive sesslos yesterday, but such hopes were dis
appointed. It Is the general lmpresilos that Mr.
Dana will be rejected.

Mr. SARGENT presented a memorial of the
egents or the California University and of the
trustees of the James Lick fund. In reference te
the location of tbe gigantic telescope to be built
from that fund. A mountain In Santa Clara
county, California, has been selected as the moat
eligible location for the erection ol the telescope.
Tbe place so selected Is wild and barren, and
la on public land. The memorial asks, therefore,
of the United States Government a sufficient
traetof land at the place desired. Referred to
the Committee on Publlo Lands.
Mr. STEVENSON presented a memorial of
citizens of Kentucky and a resolution of tbe Ken
tucky Legislature, asking the good offices of the
United States to secure the release of Elward
U'Meagher Condon, one of the Fenian prisoners.
Mr. SARGENT said tbe memorial contained
an almost Indecent reflection upon the State De

by bis sllesee to allow this to go unrebuked.

Mr. BURNSIDE, Irom theCommlttee on Com

tbe efficiency of tbe lighthouse service, and the
adverse report was concurred In.
Mr. SARGENT Introduced a bill granting tbe
land desired In Santa Clara county for the erec
tion of the Lick telescope. Publlo Lands.
Mr. SHERMAN asked to take up the bill re
ported from the Finance Committee Is relation to
tbe legal tender or sliver cols, asd which pro
vides that the United States silver corns, with
the exception or the trade dollar, shall bo a le
gal tender to the amount of
FIVE DOLtASS IH 02CE PATMEXT.
Mr. COOKRELL said he was a hard-money
man, and he did no, want to see the silver coins
of the United States demonetized. He wasted to
see silver coin a tender for a much larger amount
then tbat named in tbe bill.
Mr. SHERMAN said the Senate Finance Com
mittee were sow considering that very subject.
The pendlnx bill, however, was merely to correct
an error In the Revised Statutes which made the
trade dollar a legal tender. The trade dollar
was Intended only for trade purposes with other
countries. It was more valuable than tbe stamped
sliver dollar Any private party having bullion
conld apply at the mint and have It coined Into
Mr. BOGY' expressed the opinion that silver
ought to be made a legal tender to tbe amomt of
at least 11,000.
Mr.SAUGENT said there was about $1,000,000
of silver Subsidiary coin In circulation on tbe
Pacific coast, which the people of that coast had
paid the Government ror collar for dollar In gold.
The trade dollar which bad been authorized for
commercial purposes with China bad gone into
general circulation, asd as It was more valuable
tbe effect had been to greatly depreciate the
silver subsidiary coin, and the people or his State
bad been very much Inconvenienced in conse
quence. Mr. SHERMAN, in tbe course or the discus
sion, said, as tbe matter now stood any private
citizen conld oontrol the coinage ol tho united"
States, for be could take bullion to the mint and
demand that It be coined Into trade dollars,
which were now a legal tender and were less val

Mr. JONES, or Nevada, said when the trade
dollar was first authorized It was moro reliable
tban tbe gold dollar, but. In consequence ol tbe
decline Is silver bullion, the trade dollar was now
worth sot more than ninety two cents lu gold.
He also alluded to tbe Inconvenience caused tbe
people ot the Pacific coast by -the trade dollar be

The unfinished business, being the resolution
of Mr. Mooton proposing an Investigation into
Mississippi aftairs, as modified by tbe substitute
or Mr. OiiRiSTiAMrr, was then taken up.
Mr. BAYARD said lour years ago, when an
Investigation was made Into tbe affairs or tbe
Southern States with a view to legislation, a
joint committee of tbe two Houses of Congress
was raised. Now, when this resolution or inquiry
Is brought in, and legislation distinctly sug
gested as a result of tho inquiry, the co-ordinate
branch of Congress Is entirely Ignored. Further
tban this. Inquiry Is to be addressed also to the
election of members of the other House. There
are no nrecedents for either of these propositions.
He asked who desired this Information? Not one
petition had come from Mississippi asking ror It.
No one had disputed tbe right of the Senator
elect to his seat. He commented on the enforce
ment laws, and the manner In which they had
been carried out, and said there bad been the
most lavish expenditure of publlo funds In tbe
South by political emissaries In tyrannizing and
TEBRORIZI2CQ OVIIt THE FEOVLE.
Mr. BOUTWELL said all the money that had
been expended was made necessary by the crimes
asd outrages of the partisan associates of the
Senator from Delaware. It was made necessary

Mr.BAYARD maintained that the eft ectofthe

show that all the prosecutions under the enforce
mrnt acts were Invalid. He then argued at length
against the legality asd the necessity of the pro

In Investigating the men who had saved the
Union. He said If the people of this country next
fall did not put down the Democratic party by a
majority so overwhelming that It would sever

ANOTHER CIVIL WAR.
He charged upon the Democratic party of the
North the responsibility ror the outrage visited
upon tbe colored people of the South, The peo-
Sle or the North could take care or themselves,
utltwas useless to ask them to take by the
band the men who had endeavored to destroy the
Government, and who would aot recognise the
results ot the war, but Insisted upon trampling
upon the rights asd the liberties of four millions
oi tbe people ol the country.
Mr. BAYARD resented what he alleged were
reflections upon his patriotism by Mr. Botrr
will. Every drop or blood In his body, he said,

Mr. MORTON said to-day Mr. Batasd had
made this a personal issne. He (Mr. M.) was
Indisposed to do this, although he supposed he
could sustain himself should he do so. He would
like the Senator to show where he (Mr. M.) had
misrepresented the Southern people or made
statements which could net be sustained by tbe
faets. He (Mr. M.) claimed that bis course In
the Louisiana case and in this case was entirely
comment, while that of Mr. Batabd was Incon
sistent, That Senator over and over again In tbe
Pinchbeck case argued that we had the power to
Inquire Into the election of members of the Legis
lature, but In the Lamar case In Mississippi he
argues that we cannot. He (Mr. M.) heartily
echoed the desire of the Senator for peace. Bat

to a Republican Senate Investigating this thing;
but it is all right for a Democratlo House -to-cany
on 10 or 30 Investigations at an expense or
thousands of dollars dally, and for no other pur
pose than to make political capital. The Sena
tor said that tens of millions had bees spent' In,
the operations of the enforcement acts. Mr.
Morton showed by the appropriation acts that
the entire amount appropriated since the enact
ment of the enforcement acta for the expenses of
all tbe courts In the whole United States was
only tl2.ooo,boo. He expressed the hope that
tbe Ku-Klox would be Telundad the fines - lm
posed upon them. So they will be If the Demo
crats get control or Congress. That is an Issue
lBthentxtCoErreis. These eaouadrtls, the;
KuJUux arete be raCanded from tbe Treasury,
the fines which they raid.
IN JUrOABD TO GOVERNOR AXES,
to whose ease Mr. Bat ASP had alluded, he said
that Gov. Ames had yielded to the ttorm. Uov.
Ames knew that tbeDemocraoy were determined
to get possession of the Governor's office Just as
they had attained possession of the Legislature..
The Senator bad charged him Mr. M. with as
sailing tbe white people of the South. He did
not assail the white people, but he assailed the
murderers or the South, and he assailed their de
fenders. Every one knew that the people of tbe
North had so animosity against tbe people or
the South, and If the Republicans of the South
were allowed the same rights as the Democrats;
ot the North there would be no farther trouble..
In regard to the Supreme Court decisions on the
enforcement act, he said he wonld be frank
enough to say that be regarded those decisions as
unfortunate. But he did not assent to tbe eon.
ttrscUon put upon those decisions by the Sen
ator. He had listened to tbe debates on one of
the constitutional amendments, and was
familiar with the circumstances or the adoption
of tbe other," and he knew asd If
did not know It, It was the only body of taenia,
the country that did sot know It that the fail
ure of a State to provide for the protection ot
the guarantees Is tbe fifteenth amendment was
a. denial or those guarantees. To say that a
State must first pars a law denying the guar.
astees of that amendment was to fritter It-away.
Mr. FRELINGHUYSEN read the section of
tbe fourteenth amendment, tbat "all persons
born or naturalized in the United States-are
citizens ot the United States and of tbe States
In which they reside." He said this meant
something. It meant that Congress had the
right to enforce that citizenship by appropriate
legislation. That section gave the citizen the
right to be protected by Congress In all the
rlffhts of the citizen.
Mr. MORTON said .he repudiated, now and..
lorever, any idea tnanjsgresacouia ouiy legis
late to protect the suffraue In the event or a
State law denying that-right. Any each con
struction as that would be to-destroy and ut
terly nullity both tne lourteentn ana niwcniu
amendments, and all
OCR TVORg HAS G01TE TOR SOTHINO.
He denied that the Supreme Court had drawn
any such conclusion. When a State falls through
any reason to protect the legal rights of the col
ored people. It Is not only the right but tbe duty
or the United States Government to protect those
rights. This Is shown beyond a doubt by the
debates on the amendment. -
Mr. WITHERS said he would not reply to the
Insinuations thrown out against the people of-Ms
section In the style and the langnage In which
they bad been made, out he must repel those
insinuations. He said his people bad accepted
the results or tbe war; they were willing and
anxious that all the rights of the colored people
should be secured to them.
Mr. MAXEY expressed at some length his de
votion to tbe Union.
Mr. BRUCE obtained tbe floor, and then gave

The emtndment as amended was then rejected.
Mr. WADDELL offered a substitute for tbat
portion or the bill relating to the employees of
the Clerk's office, the snbstltute making a much
less reduction In the number and compensation
of the employees than Is proposed by the bill,
asd argued that tbe reductions proposed by the
committee were too sweeping; ana that the com
pensation allowed was sot proportionate to the
pay ot other
ziirLonca or tbx bocsz.
Mr. WELLS, of Mo., opposed the amendment,
and ssld the committee had found a large excess
or employees beyond what was necessary, and
even beyond the number authorized by any con
struction ot tbe law.
Mr, HOUSE, of Tenn., advocated the amend,
ment. and said the committee, while Jt had re

undervaluations ef Imported goods, and also for
penalties provided for by the statute of ISM. A
demurrer was filed by the defense to the declara
tions In both suits, and the points raised; were
argued before Judge Blatehford, who has Just
rendered a decision. The Judge sustains the
demurrer to all the counts on substantially the
grounds taken by the defendants' counsel. He
holds that the statute of 1123 Is repealed by that
criMJ; that the decision of the Supreme Court
apparently contrary to this is not really In this
question, and that tbe fines claimed being at the
discretion of the court, cannot be considered debt,
which Involves the Idea of a definite sum.- All
the counts of both declarations are therefore held
to be bad.
