Utin the President bop; to escape if
thaifact of his violating- that law be
proved oiconfessea by ham, as-has
' been done? Can be expect .a infaciect
onitibisi of 111/5 tryers- to pronounce
that law unconstitutional and void—
thoseesme tryers have passed upon
Its validity upon several occasions ?
The Act was originally--prsed by a
vote of 29 yeas to:9 nays.
Sithsetitienty the House of Repre
sentatives passed the bilivith amend
ments, which the Senate disagreed to
and the - bill was afterward referred
to a committee of conference -of the
two Houses, whose . agreement - was ,
reported to the Senate by the Mans
- gore and was adopted by a vote of 22
yeas to 10 nays. ,
After the, veto, upon reeonsiderS
tion of the bill in the Senate,and aft r
all the arguments against its validi y
were spread before that body, it Fr
eed by a vote et ..3 5 yeas to 11 nays.
The President contends that by vir
tue of the 06filititution he had the
right to remove heads of departments,
and cities a large number ofeases
where his predecessor had done so.—
It mtiet be observed that all those

TUE DEMUCRATIC 111.1911191 T.,
A leading Democratic journal of
ifaine„ the ,Portland Argus, makes
the follOsting estimate of the result
of the first ballot in the approaching
Deingnratio National Conventionevlz:
Fok McClellan 112
" Pendleton, • 103
In this estimate the Nentlngland
States and New York, with Califon
pia, Delaware, and Tennessee are
given to McClellan, most otthe Wes•
tern States, with Kentucky and West
Virginia to Pendleton, and the South
ern States and Pennsylvania to Han
cock. But certainly McClellan has
no such strength as this calculation
represents him to bare. Pendleton
seems likely to got many of the States
assigned to McClellan and Hancock
respectively. The N. Y. Bun remarks
that in all 'probability the contest in
the Convention will be between Gov.
Seymour and Mr. Pendleton,; and
sets down the following as the prob
able division of the votes at the
For Pendleton, ..
Dolabtful, ~„ . 26
In this estimate nearly aTB the
Western and Southern States are,
given to Pendleton, while New York, ,
New Jersey, Pennsylvania and the
New England Staten with the excep
tion of Maine, are , handed over to
Seymour. As the two-thirds rule,
will be enforced, and it will require
212 votes to select the candidate, it
is apparent that, if our estimate is
coned, there can be no nomination
on the first ballot. But the States of l
Oregon and Nevada, which we have
classed as doubtful, are more likely
to vote for Pendleton than for hie
competitor. In Maine, the Conven
tion of one district has also declared
for him ; and in Maryland, not only
are the - predominant. tendencies in
his favor, but some of the moat influ
ential Democratic politicians are
openly his advocates. As . the matter
appears to-day, his nomination by
the Convention on the Fourth of July
is more than probable ; but no man
can tell wha• may happen between
now and the meeting of the Conven
tion. These, are very rapid times,
and the plan of the shrewdest poli
ticians are often overset by causes
which come upon them by surprise.
GEN. tCAMERON'S VOTEB.—The press
of the State, almost without excep-
tion, arc loud in their praise of the
unifoimity with which Gen. CAMERON
votes for the Right in the Impeach
ment trial of the President. Penn
sylvania may well be proud of her
Senator. Gen. CAMERON takes a prac
tieakeommon sense view of the ques
tions involved in the trial. No man
understands better than he, the de
sires and convictions of the public.
Re realizes that long before articles
of impeachment had been preferred
agabist JontrsoN he had been arraign
ed before the bar of public opinion,
_conyicted of being a traitor to
his pit* and his principles, a tyrant
and despot, who was plotting the ru
in of the country. Sentence was long
since pronounced against him by the
people, who are really his triers, and
whose verdict the Senate should and
must respect. •
On the impeachment trial, as on
all other 'questions, the-votes of Gen.
CAUF t lifkldlaVC been of the most sound
and radical character. There is nev
et any question as to where his vote
will be cast. He boldly and truthful
ly represents the radical sentiment
of the State, for which he deserves
as he receives, the approval of every
sound and honest Republican. - •
STATE TR - EASCREIL=On Monday las ,
Gen. Ittalx entered 'upon the duties of
the office of the State Treasurer, to
which he was elected in January last,
W. H. KEMBLE, retiring. Mr. lambi.
will - unquestionably make a faithful
and popular officer, as he possesses
the ability, and we have no , doubt,
has the desire to administer the fi
nances of the State, in such a manner
as shall redound to her financial cred
it, and to the interests of the tax.
Mr. Isms has re-appointed M. H.
TAcoarr, Esq., as cashier of the de
partment, a responsible place, and ,
one which he has ably and honestly
filled for some years. He has also re
appointed as Chief Clerk, Wu. LEwis,
of this County, an appointment emi
neatly fit to be made.. Mr. LEWIS has
occupied one of the most important
desks in the Treasury for some time,
and has earned the reputation of be
ing an.efficient and valuable officer.
We congratulate Mr..laKui upon the
favorable auspices undet which he
commences his official life, and-pre
dict for him a worthy and popular
as, The election of Hon. GALL - BHA
A. Gaon as chairman of the State
Central Committee will be received
with the liveliest satisfaction by
every Republican. He possesses in
an eminent degree, the qualifications
necessary for a proper discharge of
the duties of that respowdble posi
tion. Energetic and persevering, he
will give his time and best exertions
during the canvass towards marshall
ing She forces of the Republican
party, and organizing for a vigorous
and successful . campaign. We hail
his alipointment as the premonition
of a "good time coming" in the
tics of Pennsylvania, when the ono
case of our principlet is not to bo
made secondary to the advancement
of mercenary and selfish scheme'.

A Rum -Wcotss.—After thirty-six
years of litigation,the celebrated law
suit of Mrs. Gains has been settled
and the decision of the United States
Supreme Court in her favor renders
her the weathiest woman in America.
Mrs. Gaines claimed to be the daugh
ter of Daniel Clarke,lwho was born in
Sligo,lreland, and came to this wan
try on the invitation of a rich beam
lor uncle who made him his heir. In
1802 Mr. Clark married Zulema Car
rier,and Myra Clark (afterwards Mrs.
Osines)was born of this marriage.--
Disagreement arose between Mr. and
Mrs. Clark, and in .1807 they separat
ed. No public acknowledgment of
her Snot mi Wrier was ever made,and
Mrs. Clark married again. In 1818
_MOM Clarke made a will wherein he
recognised the legitimacy of Myra,
and devised her his immense property.
Yet, of this will his dangter was
kept in ignorance. She was reared
by a Mr. Davis, and knew nothing of
her parents or her rights. In 1882 she
married Ma j. Gen. Gaines. In examin
ing some old papers, by mere acci
dent, he obtained intimation of his
wife's parentage and claims, and a
suit was at once commenced against
Mr. Clark's executors. After a long

Dlfiltati AUDI BERrer.—The debate
in the British House of Cooimons, on
the Gladstone• resolutions for the dis
establishment pf the Irish Church,
closed with a tory defeat, even more
decisive than tlie two previous votes,
the first resolution being adapted by a
majority of sixty-five, being larger
than the majority _by which the - go ,- -

Baster vacation. This . was rendered
more significant by the bitter opposi

the scheme. one of confiscation and
violence, to wliich he said the people
of England would never cosent. This
defeat is regarded in London as de
cisive, and Disareli asked time to
