Mr. IJutler referrnl to. tho impeach ment of Lor.l Daubv, a case, he sai.l, which went a reat way toward estab lishing the prinu:ple that no Minister eould shelter him-lf behind the throne by pleading obidience to the orders of Ills sovereign. He was answerable for the justice, the honesty, the utilit of nil measures emanating from t.ae Crown, as well as lor their legality, nnd the executive . a lininisiratioii was ' thus or ought to be .subordinate in all great matters of policy to the superin tenduneo or the virtual control of the two Houses of Parliament. . . . The speaker , tJi"ii reviewed the question whether the nigh Court of Impeachment was really the N"iiate or not, and passed on to the matter of the competency of o:io of the triers, 011 account of aPditity to the accused, sayino; : W'c believe it is, nay, his duty to the State he represents, to sit upon tho trial h's ho" would upon any other matter which should come bc- . foroslhe Senate. . His seat and voles belong to his consiituonts and not to himself, to be used according to Lis best judgment upon every grave matter that comes before the iSenate. Mr. Butler then recited the articles of impeachment and said : The Ilousa of Reprentatives and the peo ple have joined issue with Andrew Johnson as to tha right to act as he lias. This bill which he has violated received the requisite sanction of both the Senate nnd Hoiisc of Representa tives, after a full consideration of his 'objections. If he is to bo nllowed to excreise this dangerous power of re moval, where is it to end ?

It did not seem to occur to C'oiii,'re-s, then, that it had not tho powi;r lo regiilateappointments to and removals from office. ' . ' Mr. J. cited further acts of, Con gress in support of his position, and after stating the events of February, the removal of Stanton, appointment of Thomas, ami the interview with General Emory, concluded his argu 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 I roin oliicc who sustained the Congress 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 bors, so that murders, assassinations and ma'"ii"rcs were rife all ovl'l- the Southern State, which lie encouraged bv his refu-'al to consent that a single nrtrdei'cr be liunislnd, though thou stnds of good tnen liava been slain. j.nd fiirl'icr, that h; rtt;iv,npted by ; military or l r to prevent tin execu tion ot acls of Congro-i by the mili tary Commao l!'s who were charged therewith.

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?

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.

Writing nbout improvements re minds 1110 that a firmer does not al ways think rof what is needful ar.d may be don when leisure times occur 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.

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.
