Mr. IJutler referrnl to. tho impeach

which went a reat way toward estab

eould shelter him-lf behind the throne

for the justice, the honesty, the utilit

or not, and passed on to the matter of

Mr. Butler then recited the articles
of impeachment and said : The
Ilousa of Reprentatives and the peo

Johnson as to tha right to act as he

reported that it was necessary to trim

after stating the events of February,

of Thomas, ami the interview with

ment 11's follows :
Who dm not know that from the
hour the President began his usurpa
tion of power he everywhere denoun
ced Congivs, the legality anil cohsti
tutionalitv of its action, and defied its
legitimate powers, and for that pur
pose announced Ins intention' nnd car
ried out his purpose, as far ris he was
able, of removing every true man

of the United States. And it is to
carry out tliil plan of action that he
claims the iiulimiteil power of re
nioval, for the illegal exercise of
which lie stands before you' this day.
Who does not know that in pursuance
of the s irj plan he Used his Veto
power Indiscriminately to prevent the
pwagn of wholesoaio laws, enacted
for tlin picilieition of the country?
And wh 'ii tin laws wero pased'by
the constitutional 'majority over his
vetoes, hu made .the most determined
opposition, both open anil covert, to
them, and for the purpose of making
that opposition ellc"tu al, he endeavor
ed to array and did array all tlio peo
ple lately in rebellion to set them
selves araiust Congress,' and against
the tin.! and loyal men, their neigh

and ma'"ii"rcs were rife all ovl'l- the

out,niid the farm must cbuie iu. Ten
years berio the Southerner will be cul
tivating a hundred .acres instead. of
stretching over a thousand on borrow
ed money and unpaid-for provisions.
. If any Republican discovers his silver-plating
getting thin, let him take
a two mouths' Southern journey, A
thoughtful and observant , man will
find himself newly electrotyped in the
party that swept away secession- nnd
slavery, und which, if true to itself,
will expand and ennoblo by states
manship what it so steadfastly helped
to save by the sword. ,
In three or four letters I grumbled
nt the indiscretions of Congress, but,
all the while, the Southern people ami
news papers were treating my mode
rate Republicanism with tonics. Sit
months down there, J. fear, would have
made me a Radical. . "
Tho Southerners conceive that they
did nothing particularly wrong in the
part they took in the drama of tho re
bellion, lhey ieel no repentance, ami
no regret, unless it be for failure. This
may bo human' nature; well It is hu
man nature not to let them govern
the country again. They have a fond
hope that, through Andrew Johnson
and tho Jjemoeratio party, (both of
whom they secretly dispise.) they will
ba floated into, supreim power, as of
old. . It is strange that they tunl so
delude themselves, but such is the' fact.
"Hie .North coines, said Charles bum
ner before tho war. Tho North has
eomo with n vengeaee. y It grows by
emigration one thousand a day. How
much does the South crow? In what
manlier, are the new colored citizens to

tho rest resumo control ot tho govern
ment? Ihe Southern whip used. to
have secession for d snapery. ' What
will the, new be? It was formerly a
fashion to let Rebels build hostile
earthworks right' under the inoffensive
noses of national forts. Is tho same
considerate policy assured, for the fu
ture? ...

i liavo been ustoinslied to find how
generally the Southerners! believe the
iNorth to uo on t lie verge of civil eoii
vulsion.:; Readiug only- thoir, own
newsjmpers and the most violent Cop
perhead journals of the ' North,- thev
are firmly conviuced thut. .nothing
nutra likely is to Imppen than the em
broilment of the VV Hstern with the
Middle nnd ;New-Kiijland Shites.
This delusion is shared with thousands
of 1 the most intelligent men of the
South. That they would delight in
such a calamity is a certain us the fact
that tho next gale that sweeps from
tho North will not take to them "the
clash of resounding anus," . They
cannot understand tho clastic temper
and wholesomo tolerance of tho North
where elections come and go, crisis
ripen and decline; with no thought of
bloodshed, nor black lists, nor social
disdain, contempt and persecution.
The Southerner is generous in some,
things, and honorable iu many ; but
he is not yet 11 good citizen for a rc
publio. , That is tho whole trouble,
lie must bo made so, or stand back
for his children. .. 11) needs a firm,

he was'ors. : When ho fully and final
ly understands that his old iinduo po
litical : importance . is irrevocably n
thing of tho past, ho, will tako tin first
step on the road lo valuahlu citizenship.
But between Andrew Johnson and the
"Democratic Reaction," ho has come
to, believe iu the speedy overthrow of
the Republican party, nud in the res
toration of the slavo' dy hasty to reinn
over a dominant partv, composed of
southern extremist ami Northern
doughfaces., ,, r, . 1 ' .
Tho South to-day is not divided in
to parties, unless it be white vs. black.
Tho. whites tlo not call themselves
Democrats, though thoy pray for tho
success cf that party in the reasonable
hope that its triumph will again com
mit it and the country to their malig
nant control.
Such a political resolution would be
a horror beside which oppressive tax
ation and Congressional excess (if
either exist, or Inrve been committed)
count as nothing. . Weighed ngainst
that contingency, impeachment is but
a feather iu a scale. Tho ' South has
deceived nnd well . nigh ruined us
once, That was their limit. If thoy
do it again, it will bo ours.

of this .-"Southern Journey-' has been

anil it recalls to my mind the practice-
of a large and successful farmer,
who at Ui3 death left his affairs in ' a
prosperous condition, nnd his premis
es in complete order. His neighbors
often wondered at the case with which
ho conducted operations; ho never
hurried but the right thing was always
done iit tho right time, nnd his work
never lagged. Much of tho improve
ment ho made was in odd spells when the
routine of regular farm work yns
broken' by rainy weather, or after fin
ishing tho work on a crop, anil while
waiting for nil other t6 get to the
proper Stage;' Tie kept a largo shttc
linngirig in the kitchen where nil his
Workmen could see it, and whenever a
job occurcd to him it was" noted on
the slate. ' For irtstance, some' entries
ran thns : "Make i gate for the brook
lot ;" ''Clean out tho open ditch in the
wheat field';" "Iay n new floor On the
scallbld over the barn floor;" "Get
soino whitcwood trees to mill for mak
ing ganleti fence pickets ;" ''Plant
shade trees along tho roadside;" "Dig
the alders out of the fence corners ana
look nftcr tho wild mustard that came
up where, the thrashing machine stood
in U10 field hist yenr." In this way
his' slate was filled, and if a leisure
half day occurred, his men. all had
plenty of work ; and if the master
hnppcnod to bo absent, the slate told
the workmen what to do. AfW'a
time it was his custom to lay out the
day's work on tho sltito each evening
previous, and when a job was finished
tfic record was erased. - To get the
slato -clean was the ambition of the
workmen. Exchange. ,-. ;
