when submitted to the people, and that
a the time of voting upon the ratifica

also vote for members of Congress and

will veto this bill, but Congress will
then pass it over his veto, and it will
become a law within two. weeks. This
act will enable the Republicans to re

twenty additional Boasters. With
such a reinforcement Johnson may be
convicted—without it his conviction is
thought doubtful. ,
In spite of the 'frantic efforts of par

What Mr. Johnson says for Himself,
A New York correspondent of the
Boston Journal writes as follows":
I have just had an interview with a
leading Democrat from New England.
He had an interview with President
Johnson on Sunday night.. The Pres
ident made a full disclosure of his rea
sons for the stop he has taken, -and
what his purpose is in the matter.—
Not ono of his friends'—not oven the
Cabinet—knew that ho had resolved
to defy Congress. Of this action in the
matter his friends complain, as it took
them wholly by surprise, and proven.
ted that preparation that W,as needed
to meet the new issue. Mr. Johnson
intended , to moot the issue alone, and
asked and took no counsel, so ho said.
Mr. Johnson expressed the utmost
confidence in Chief Justice Chase, that
if a trial comes he will give the Presi
dent a fair trial. Ho does not say
that Mr. Chase is with him, but that
ho will deal fairly with him and that
he will hese% in his hands.
Tho tactics of the friends of the
President, Messrs. Dixon,. Doolittle,
Hendricks, and others, is to demur to
the Court before whom the case is to
be tried. They will raise the question
that the Senate' is not competent to
try 'the President, as the majority
have prejudged the case. The Attor
ney General has informed the Sena
tors who defend Mr. Johnson, that
they have the same right to object to
a Senator that a prisoner has to object
to a jury:"
- In answer to the question how ho
can justify his.conduct of acting under
the Civil Tonftro Bill at ono time and
,at another; Mr. Johnson
say's. he did act under it, but with the
understanding that a case should at
once bo made up and carried to the
civil tribunal. But ho was 'de
feated and thwarted by his enemies,
and now ho means the law shall be
tested, and he is willing to' pay the
penalty for the attempt be it what it
may. He said this without bravado
et a defiant spirit, but with the air of
one who had undertaken a grave mat
tor, the issue of which was quite doubt
ful. His friends complain that ho
showed a want of confidence in them,
and had not , treated thorn fairly to
take so important a step, as to defy
Congress and give them no warning—
bringing the news on thorn like a clap
of thunder from a clear sky.

THE THOMAS CASE
The room of the Supreme Court of
the District of Columbia was crowded
this morning with both white and black
spectators, to witness the proceedings
in the ease of Adjutant General Thom
as, who on Saturday gave bail for his
appearanee before Chief Justice Cart
ter. Members of the bar .were .also
largely represented. Adjutant Gen
eral Thomas canto into the room ac
companied by his counsel, Richard J.
Merrick and Waller S. Cox, with J.
H. Bradley, Sr. as advising counsel.
By order of Judge Cartter, at twenty
minutes past ten the Criminal Court
Was opened. A subphcona was issued
this morninr , to Stanton to appear in
Court and bring with him his commis
sion as Secretary of War, and also cer
tain official papers.
After tho transaction of seine other
business, Judge Orlin came into the
Court and took a seat at the right of
Chief Justice Carttor. Judge Fisher
was at the left of Judge Cartter. At
twenty minutes past eleven Judge
Cartter asked whether counsel were
ready to proceed with the case of the
United States against Adjutant Gen
eral Thomas. Mr. -- Riddle stated
that being unwell to-day, and the sub
ject being of high importance, he de
sired that the case be continued till to
morrow. Mr. Merrick objected, on
the ground that great public interests
were involved, which required early
settlement. Judge Cartter was dis
posed to grant a postponement. Mr.
Merrick, for General Thomas, asked
that Judge Cartter consider this mat
ter in the Criminal Court, and not in
Chambers. Judge Cartter declined to
do this, saying ho merely sat as an ex
amining Magistrate. Mr. Merrick said
General Thomas was now here, and
his bail surrendered him to the custo
dy of the Marshal of the District of
Columbia. He was therefore a pris
oner, and his counsel asked for a writ
of habeas corpus. The following is the
To Hon. D. L. Cartter, Chief Justice
of the Supreme Court in said District :
The petition of Lorenzo Thomas shows
that lie is now held in custody by the
Marshal of this District under and by
virtue of a warrant made and deliver
ed to said Marshal by your Honor, sit
ting in chamber. Ho avers and will
show that said imprisonment is wholly
unlawful and without color of authori
ty under the Constitution and laws of
the United States upon the facts stN
tod as cause for his said arrest, and he
prays your honor for a writ of habeas
corpus, ordering said Marshal to bring
the body of your petitioner before your
Honor in open court, that the cause of
his detention aforesaid may be inquir
ed into and ho be dealt with according
Mr. Carpenter said ho regarded the
last action as an entirely unnecessary
episode. This action has been prose
cuted' here by the Secretary of War
for the purpose of bringing this matter
to settlement in the Courts. There is
no feeling between him and General
Thomas, Considerations alone of a pub
lic nature have acutated this prosecu
tion. 'General Thomas is ft gentleman
who will not depart. We do not ask
that be should even be required to en
ter into his own recognizancc,and sure
ly ho cannot come into Court and
make himself a prisoner unless the
Court. at least accepts that fact, or
somebody asks him to be imprisoned.
With the full latitude which we con•
sent ha shall have, and which I have
no doubt your Honor will very wil
lingly accord to him, this application
for a writ of habeas corpus seems to be
Counsel for defense again urged their
The Chief Justice—l have never
heard of a prisoner surrendering him
self to his securities or the Marshal.—
It is always to the Court. Where is
the process of the Marshal by which
General Thomas is held ? His warrant
has been 'returned, and the parties' re
cognizance has been substituted. Hav
ing appeared according to the terms of
his recognizance, he is present in court
to answer in regard to the offense
charged. It appears to me, however,
this is not the question before me as
examining magistrate, but rather a
question to be considered by the Judge
who shall sustain the application for a
writ of habeas corpus. The question
for me to determine as examining ma
gistrate is—what disposition shall be
made of the case?
Mr. Morrick—.4 was going to say to
your Honor, if you allow me a singlo
moment, that if the view expressed by
the other side bo ,correct, Gen. Thomas
being beforo your Honor, and applied
for a continuance until to morrow,
your Honor must make some disposi-
tion of the prisoner in the meantime.
When that is done, I can presont my
petition of the Criminal Court. If your
Honor discharge him, the case is at an
end, and you must either discharge or

Judge Cartter granted the motion
for the following reasons :—lt is con
fessed hero by the prosecution or rath
er stated by the prosecution-, and it is
a truth which, under the circumstan
ces of this case, we, aro well advised
of, that General Thomas does not seek
to evade the process ,of law in any re
gard ; that he is here, and will be hero
ready to answer to the demand when
called on. This, I believe, is now the
Wednesday preceding the Monday
when the grand jury convenes in this
District, only - four days, when the tri
bunal charged with the presentment
of all such offenses will be in segiion to
hear this and all other cases. Under
circumstances like these, what is my
duty as an examining magistrate ?
Is it to hold this ease from day to day
for examination until the grand jury
meets, or dismiss it and let-it abide the
ordinary process of justice? It appears
to me my duty is to let the ease take
that course. There are no circumstan
ces developed in it, as it appears to
me, that can settle anything before
this more inquiry tribunal, and I can
not disguise from myself that the sub
ject underlying the controversy- is pas
sing the ordeal of the highest tribunal
of the country, and that in contrast
with its gravity, there is a preliminary
examination here, which must termin•
ate with the session of the Grand jury,
would take on a character of trilling.
I do not, propose to be instrumental in
instituting any such proceedings. Un

I think my duty as a magistrate is
properly discharged in dismissing the
case upon the motion of the counsel for
the defendant, and shall do so. Gener

room with his counsel, several hun

him with cheers.

HARRISBURG, Feb. 27.—Ifort. A. K.
McClure, ex-Sena,ter of Pennsylvania,
who has just returned from the West

address before the House of Represen
tatives, setting forth an animated de
scription of the far West. Mr. McClure
said that no part of the East is as fer

NO act of Congress could destroy it;
but the Pacific railway would throw

They manufactured their own flour,
iron, cotton, and sugar. The difficul
ties of crossing the Rocky illountains
were often exaggerated. The speaker
had crossed them six times in four
months, and no single hundred miles
of the crossing was as difficult as the
line' between Harrisburg and Altoona.
The finest natural roads in America
were among these mountains. In win
