In the House, a resolution to impeach President Johnson considered, 129; threats of the Speaker to the galleries, 130; meaning of high crimes and migdemeanors, 130; the President has in his hands the immense patronage of the Government, 130; all facts point to one conclusion, that the President is guilty of using the great powers of the nation for the purpose of reconstructing the Government in the interests of the rebellion, 130; influence of Cabinet officers, 130; his proclamation of 1865, 131; not understood, 131 ; his motive concealed, 131 ; testimony of Matthews, of Ohio, 131 ; declared the country could not be saved except by the Democratic party, 131 ; that expression discloses his mysterious course to this day, 132; acts which disclose his guilt, 132; mes. sage of December, 132; speech of February, 1866, 132; bis vetoes, 132; interference to prevent the ratification of the constitutional amendment, 132 ; suspends the test-oath, 132; surrender of abandoned lands, 192; turned over millions of captured railway property to its former owners, 132 ; holds Tennessee bonds, 133; appointment of provisional governors, 133; these are impeachable offences, 133; proposi. tions laid down in his last message, 133; what is our condition to-day? 133; involved in financial difculties, 134; substantially impossible to collect the taxes while the Tenure-of-Office Act is in force, 134; there is no remedy for grievances while Mr. Johnson is in office, 134; all rests here, 134; this House has the gole power of impeachment, 134; this body must be guided by the law, and not by that indefinite something called conscience, which may be one thing today, and quite a different thing to-morrow, 134; the facts advanced examined, 135, 136; it is feared the failure to impeach and remove the President will defeat the congressional plan of reconstruction, 136; we may not impeach for this, 136; the resolution rejected, 137.

In the House, a resolution to impeach President Johnson again offered, 137; referred without debate to the Committee on Reconstruction, 187; report of the committee, 137; resolution to impeach the President reported, 138; the fact of removing a man from office without the consent of the Senate, while it is in session, is of itself, and always has been, considered a high crime and misdemeanor, 138; why is this attémpted ? 138; the sacrifice of two or three branches of Government deemed indispensably necessary to keep the Republican party in power, 138; the President has thrown himself violently in contact with an act of Congress, 138; this is a vast question, 138; it is the construction of vital provisions of the Constitution of our country, 139; these proceedings of removal are necessary only for a usurper, whom the people have repulsed and thwarted time and again, 139; it is known that men ascend to power over bloody steps, and that they may do it in this country, and yet be tolerated, 139.

Call this question what we may, it is apparent the leaders of this Congregs are prepared to take the final plunge into the sea of revolution, 139.

What has been the act of the President, is the question, 139; look at the evidence, and then read the law, 140; what are the relations of the President to the members of his Cabinet ? 140; can the country hold him responsible, and yet render him powerless, by filling the high offices of his department with per. Bons hostile to the success of his administration ! 140; the whole is a question of constraction, 141.

The safety of the country, the cause of good goternment, the preservation of constitational right and of public liberty, depend upon the prompt impeachment of the President, 141; nearly every department of the Government has become demoralized and cor rupt to an extent which can find no parallel in the history of any country, in any age, 141; confronted ss we are by this state of things, so threatening to our national existence, can there be any patriotic man who does not call upon Congress sternly to do ite whole duty, and purge this capitol of the crimes which defile the nation : 142.

Your right to impeach is denied, 142; this Honse is not composed as the Constitution requires, 1e; neither is the Senate composed of two Senators from each State, 142; you have no right to do it, 143; wbo believes this is a movement of the lovers of the Constitution ? 142; why is Stanton 80 anxious to hold his office! 142; can the Government exist with warring departments : 143.

A grave subject, 143; the charges few and distinct, 143; what are the official misdemeanors of Andrey Johnson disclosed by the evidence ! 143; his oath of office, 143; the animus with which this law was rin lated, 143; issuing the commission to Thomas, if it stood alone, would be an undeniable misdemeanor, 144; shall prove he was guilty of misprision of bris ery, 144; the final disposition of the Sonthern States belonged to Congress, 144; resolution adopted, 16: a committee appointed to draft articles, 145; in. peachment laid before the Senate, 145; message 1 ferred, 146; resolution of instructions to committee on rules, 146; resolutions on the constitutional responsibility of Senators for their votes, 146. (See Impeachment.)

In the Senate, a bill introduced to amend the sct to provide for the more efficient government of the rebel States," 147; to change the provision that the quires a majority of all the registered votes, H: amendment offered, 147; requiring certain qualifics. tions of those who were not voters before the wa: 147; the greatest issue ever before the people of the United States is now looming up-that is, whether this shall be a white man's Government, or a negro Government, 147, 148; it is said that a great sin bas been committed by conferring the franchise upon the negro, 148; the charge repudiated that Congress o attempted to set up a negro Government, 148; e ject referred, 149.

In the House, a motion to refer the President's message, and accompanying documents relative to reconstruction, to a committee of nine, 149; passed, 149; the committee, 149; resolutions relative to reconstruction, 149; a bill to facilitate, etc., offered 149; the bill explained, 150 ; first section restores the majority principle, 150; the second aids the existing law, 150; the third leaves the apportionment of nepresentatives as it was in 1560, 150; third section withdrawn, 151; constitutions will not be notified

Impossible to invoke the aid of this clause of the Constitution for the support of these measures, unless you interpolate into the clause a word not to be found in it, 156 ; object of the convention to preserve the republican form then existing, 156; what was the condition of each of the States ? 157; views of Mr. Madison, 157 ; it was not thought there was included in this particular clause any power to interfere with the government of a State, 157; what is loyalty ? 157; views of the power of the Constitution in former days, 158; can New York be brought under that clause ? 158; the doctrine of secession forever ended, 159; other clauses of the Constitution, 159; what is the bill on the table ? 159; motion to amend, lost, 160; committee report to strike out and insert a new bill, 160; agreed to, 160; amendment concurred in by the House, 160.

In the House, a motion to suspend the rules for the Committee on Reconstruction to make & report, 160 ; carried, 160 ; bill to admit certain Southern States reported, 160 ; report of the minority, 161 ; a bill to elect a President, 161; why violate the Constitution ? 162; the bill presents few immediate practical results, 162; object of the bill, 162; what objection, 162; the issue which underlies this legislation, 162; the first proposition involved, 163; next, the appor. tionment of representation, 163; inviolability of the national debt, 163; is this a bill which we ought to pass ? 163; acting outside of the Constitution, 164 ; where are the powers granted which it is sought to assume ? 161; the Constitution requires a preëxisting government to be guaranteed, 164; no power for this bill in the Constitution, 164; the first section in direct conflict with more than one provision of the Constitution, 165; meaning of the word guarantee, 165 ; the whole subject of observation, of inquiry, of judg. ment, is open to the United States, which means Con. gress, with the President cooperating, 166; no dimi. culty as to the constitutionality of our acts, 166; the matter of reconstruction is put into the hands of the General of the Army, 166; amendments reported and agreed to, 166; further amendment offered, 166 ; dis. cussed, 167; rejected, 167; bill passed, 163.

In the House, a bill for the admission of Arkansas

reported, 169; bill passed, 169; amendment offered in the Senate, 169; Congress has the sole, exclusive, and discretionary power over the admission of States, 169; what is it to admit a State ? 170; merely admission to a participation in the Government, 170; all States out are equally new States on their application for admission, 170; has not Congress a right to say when and how the Southern States shall be admitted ? 171; to impose this condition on Arkansas is said to deprive her of equality, 171; gross mistake or perversion in all this talk about the equality of the States, 171.

The condition is that the right of suffrage shall not be changed after admission of the State, 171; the Government could not exist without an absolute equality in the States, 172; representation is founded on the idea of equality, 172 ; the General Government cannot interfere with the franchise in the States already in the Union, 172, the exercise of this power, therefore, would destroy the equality of the States, 172; if the power to impose a restriction on admission exists, why cannot other restrictions be imposed, 173; error of the other side, 173; amendment agreed to, 173; other amendments offered and rejected, 173; bills passed, 174.
