Napier—The gieneral Warned

[From the New York Herald, of To-day.l
QUEEN'S MOTEL, LONDON, April 26, A. M.—The
special correspondent of the Herald, marching
with the advance of General Napier's army to
wards Magdala, reports by telegram—delayed in
transit—dated the 7th inst., that news was re
ceived at headquarters, from army spies to the
effect that King Theodorns intended moving im
mediately from his works on the British.
General Napier on receipt of this intelligence
Instantly crossed the Jiddah river to the plain of
Tanta, which he commenced to traverse. Many
of the animals employed by the army were lost
in crossing a terrible ravine, which is eight miles
wide. having a descent of three thousand five hun
dred feet and an ascent extending four thousand
five hundred teat on the other side. The Queen's
army having accomplished both, marched over
the '‘King's Road,' which is thirty feet wide, on
ward. General Napier then halted and recon
noitered the position at Magdala in person. He
saw the King's camps with their intrenched de
fences, and said they appeand almost impregna

QUEEN'S Bomar,. LONDON, April M.—
Three telegraphic despatches have been received
here during' the morning from the British army
expedition., under command of Major General
Napier, in Abyssinia. King Theodoras has
twenty--eight guns mounted in position
outside his work :7 , , and mostly in front of
his camp, bearing on the English advance.
General Napier • has• forwarded a letter to the
King officially demanding the relcase of the Bri
tish captives. The English army is concentrated
on the Beeshilo river. The troops have been
furnished with scaling ladders, torpedoes and
other engines and missiles of assault, and are
held in readiness for a sudden attack on the for
tress and works of Magdala. Another telegram
is dated before the palatial fortress of 31agdala
on the loth of April (Good Friday). The British
army has arrived here in front of the, King's
stronghold. The troops are distant six miles
from the fortress. The King's camp Is situated
on agreat height and in full view of the men.
The English will assault it very soon.
The third telegram is of still later date. being
written at Magdala on the .18th of April, and in it
he says: A truce which had been agreed on be
tween General Napier and King Theodoras ter
minated at an early hour this morning. Imme
diately after its termination, the King not having
surrendered the captives, Major-General Sir
Robert Napier placed himself at the head of the
First and Second brigades of his army and moved
up the hill towards the fortress as far as Shillasse.
Has portion of the strong works built was sur
rendered to' Napier by the chiefs in command
after a brisk attack, in which the African troops
were detested. King Theodorms, observing the
English advance and its first fruits, retreated
into the centre of the Magdala works on the
plateau, having first planted live of his gums at
the base.
When General Napier came in sight with his
brigades th King's artWerymen opened. on the
..tivance with these guns in presence. of Theodo
rns. The British replied Immediately with their
twelve-pounder Armstrong guns and seven-inch
mountain mortar rocket guns, throwing rockets
into the place. After enduring this fire a short
time King Tbeodorns abandoned his guns and,
still retreating Inward, barricaded the sally
ports and commenced a fire of musketry
from behind his gates and wall defences.
The Abyssinians evincing no signs of surren
der, General Napier halted his advance and com
menced a bombardment of theie work. The
bombardment was continued during a space of
three hours. When it terminated the British
commander ordered An assault, which was made
in fine style. The King's works were carried
after a very vigorous resistance on the part of the
enemy. Theodorns lost during the engagement
sixty men killed and two hundred wounded.
The English army had fifteen of rank and file
wounded. After the works were completely
taken King Theodorns was found dead by the
English soldiers on entering the centre of his
tronghold. He was shot through the head. Some
persons say ho was killed during one of the
battles; others incline to the opinion that he com
mitted suicide when he had found the fortune of
the day against him. The King's body was re
cognized among the killdti and wounded by the
British captives when released. Theodorns's two
sons were taken prisoners by Napier, and all the
European prisoners held by their deceased father
set free. The interior of the fortress of Maodala
presented an extraordinary and splendid sight,
the place glowing almost with barbaric splen
dor. The British troops plundered it at 011C3.
The mtn found four royal crowns made of
solid gold, twenty thousand dollars in silver,
thousands of silver plates, several lots of very
rich jewels, and numerous other articles of great
value. General Napier takes by his victory the
twenty-eight large guns used against him, five
thousand stand of small arms, ten thousand
shields, such as are used in battle in open field by
the Abyssinians; ten thousand spears, and many
other articles of war equipment. The liberated
British captives will start for home on the 14th
of April. Gomel Napier's army will reorganize,
"fall iu," and return to India and England at

QUF.11.14 HOTEL, LONDON, April 28, P. 31.—Still
later adviees from Abyssinia, dated at Zoula on
the 18th of April, have been received hero.
The very latest reports had at that point from
the scene of action in Magdala represent that
fourteen thousand native troops had laid
down their arms to Napier, and that Theodorus
had five hundred soldiers killed and fifteen hundred
wounded in the late engagement. Advicca from
Napier's headquarters, in Mngdala, without dale,
are also at hand. They state that the Europeans
latelrheld captive there, numbering sixty souls,
including men, women and children, were
already on the route to Zoula for home, and that
the entire force of Theodorus' army had been
either killed, wounded or captured.

Peace or War.
The Golos publishes an article which has cre
ated an immense sensation. It says that the Em
peror Napoleon meditates a great war against
Russia and Prussia, but that he is likely to try
and detach Prussia from Russia. Should ho suc
ceed, the war would be carried on on the banks
of the Baltic and in the Vistulian countries,
Warsaw and St. Petersburg being the objectives.
In that ease Austria, Turkey, and Sweden would
be the allies of France. But Prussia would be
attacked, if France could conciliate Russia rela
tive to the East. The Gobs concludes by stating
that; in any case, Prussia and Russia had to re
quest France to disarm first,pledging themselves
to do the same—that .forced intervention world
be justified by the general interests of Europe.

Tragedy in Chicago—Fatal Encounter
in a Gaming Mahlon.
[Front the Chicago Journal, April 25.]
We have one more horror in the shape of a
bloody and fatal affray in a gambling hell on
Madison street. The affair took place last night
in room No. 8 of the Tobin building, northeast
corner of Clark and Madison streets. The room
is occupied by Theodore Cameron as a faro bank.
The circumstances or the tragedy, as far as
they have been developed up to the present time,
are as follows: It seems that a man named Jo
seph Bruce, bailing from Philadelphia, and who
came to this city only a few days ago, on his ar
rival here became acquainted with the Cameron
crowd and made the gambling hell alluded to his
headquarters: He played very frequently and
drank deeply.
It is stated that yesterday afternoon, at about
3 o'clock, he visited the gambling room, and en
gaged in play. He appeared to feel intense in
terest in the result of his betting, and deliberated
long and anxiously as he staked each separate
amount. He played for some moments, losing
steadily until his deficit amounted to $2O. Then
he ceased playing—seemed to become very much
excited, and with oaths demanded back the
money he had lost.
The altercation continued for some time, the
dealer refusing to consider Bruce's demands, and
finally saying to the latter that Mr. Cameron, the
proprietor, would soon come in, and would at
tend to him. He even thought that gentleman
would return the $2O, if he were properly asked.
Bruce replied with imprecations that if he did
not do so he would put an end to all connected
with the establishment, and take the money him
self. With this he left the room, in a high l ista.te
of excitement, threatening to return again and
carry out his expressed intenti ms in case his de
mands were not by that time granted.
About 8 o'clock in the evening Watts Cameron,
Theodore Cameron, Fred. White, the dealer, Ed.
Martin, printer and gambler, Peter Willis, and
Henderson Vaughn, the colored waiter, were in
the room. • Play was in progress.
About B o'clock Theodore Cameron went to
the sideboard to procure a glass of water. On
;coking round there was Bruce, revolver in hand.
Hoarse with cage he advanced toward White and
demanded the return of his money. White re
ferred him to Cameron. When the latter was
pointed out to him Bruce turned suddenly around,
and presenting his weapon at him, discharged it
twice, without effect. Cameron, by this time, had
taken a five-shooter from the drawer of the side
board, and, rushing up to Bruce, discharged the
contents; the first shot striking the breast-bone
and entering the vicinity of the heart, the second
entering the right breast and severing the right
lung, and the third entering the neck and tear
ing the carotid artery. Either of the wounds
would have proven fatal. Cameron continued
tiring. Bruce did not utter a word after ho was
struck, but, throwing up his hands, fell iu the
corner of the room.
The door was at once locked, and the parties,
excepting Bruce, left the room. Brace was
gradually bleeding to death, and lying almost in
sensible in the corner.
Daley wasfound by Ofticor Casey and one of
the Pinkerton policemen, on the sidewalk
nearly insensible. The marks of "blood were
tracked to Tobin's building, and right up to the
door of No. 8. Sergeant Tom Moore arrived and
demanded admittance. No answer being re
turned, ho smashed it in, and entering, found
Bruce still alive but unable to articulate. Medical
aid was summoned, but to no purpose, forßrace
expired soon after.
Judge Bustced arrived this morning from
Montgomery, and is stopping at the Battle
Douse. The Judge has not yet entirely recovered
from the effect of his wounds and still walks
with great difficulty. It is his intention to open
the United States District Court to-morrow.

Mr. William', then took up the answer made
by the President's counsel on the charge of vio
lating that law, and first discussed the proviso
which it was alleged excluded Mr. Stanton from
its operation. ftc had himself suggested that
amendment, and explained its meaning in the
Committee of Conference, and he had never
dreamed that such a construction would be put
upon it. 2‘.,.; read by the President's
counsel, it would be contrary to the
purpose of the bill. Mr. Stanton's case
was certainly meant to be covered, if it was
not the original cause of its introduction. He
claimed that the principles of the Constitution
required the proviso to be construed in the light
of Vie purpose of the law, and held that the ob
jection that Mr. Stanton did not come within
its effect, bebause not formally appointed by Mr.

Powerful and Eloquent Argument
[Special to the Philadelphia Evening EuSelina
To-day, Manager Stevens makes his argument
before the Senate, upon the impeachment of
Andrew. Johnson. We give this eplendid effort
of the veteran Manager in full, and need not be
speak for it the careful perusal which it will re
ceive from every one who has the opportunity te►
read what Mr. Stevens has to say about the'greet
criminal whom he has labored so hard to bring
to trial.
May it please the Court: I trust to be able to be
brief In my remarks, unless I should find myself
less master of the subject which I propose to dis
cuss than I hope, experience having taught that
nothing is so prolix as ignorance. I feat I may
prove thus ignorant, as I had not expepted to
take part in this debate until very lately.
I shall discuss but a single article—the one, that
was finally adopted upon my earnest solicitation *
and which, if proved, I considered then and atilt
consider, as finite sufficient for the ample con
viction of the distinguished respondent, and for
his removal from office, which is the only legiti
mate object for which this impeachment could
be instituted.
During the very brief period which I shall] ou
cupy, I desire to discuss the charges against Ole
respondent in no mean spirit of malignity or vi
tuperation, but to argue them in a manner worthy
of the high tribunal before which I appear, and
of the exalted position of the accused. What
ever may be thought of his character or condi
tion he has been made respectable and his con
dition has been dignified by the action of his
tellow-citizens. Railing accusation, therefore,
would 111 become this occasion, this tribunal, or
a proper sense of the position of those who dis
cuss this question on the one side or the other!
To sec the chief servant of a trusting commu
nity arraigned before the bar of public justice,
charged with high:delinquencies, is interesting.
To behold the Chief Executive Magistrate of a
powerful people charged with the betrayal Of his
trust, and arraigned for high crimes and misde
meanors, is always a most interesting epectacle.
When the charges against such public servant
accuse him of an attempt to betray the high trust
confided In him and usurp the power of a whole
people, that he may become their ruler, it is
intensely interesting to millions of men, and ,
should be discussed with a calm determination,
which nothing can divert and nothing can reduce
to mockery. Such is, the condition of this great
Republic, as looked upon by an astonished and
wondering world.
The offices of impeachment in England and
America are very different from each other, in
the uses made of them for tho punishment of of
fences; and he will greatly err who undertakes) to
make out an analogy between them, either in the
mode of trial or the final result.
In England the highest crimes may be tried be
fore the High Court of Impeachment, and the
severest punishments, even to imprisOnment,
fine and death, may be inflicted.
When our constitution was framed, all those
personal punishments were excluded from the
judgutt.nt, and the defendant was to be dealt
with just so far as the public safety required,
and no further. Hence, it was made to apply
simply to political offences—to persons holdnia
political positions, either by appointment or
election by the people.
Thus it is apparent that no crime containing
malignant or indictable offences, higher than
misdemeanors, was necessary either to be allegedl
or proved. If the respondent was shown to be
abusing his official trust to the injury of the peo
ple for whom be was discharging public ditties,
and persevered in such abuse to the injury of his
constituents, the true mode of dealing with hint
was to impeach him for crimes and misdemean
ors (and only the latter is necessary), and thus
remove him from the office which he was abus
ing. Nor does it make a' particle of difference
whether such abuse arose from malignity, from
unwarranted negligence or from. depravity, so
repeated as to make his continuance in office in
jurious to the people and dangerous to the public
The punishment which the law under our con:
stitution authorizes to be inflicted fully demon
strates this argument: That punishment upon
conviction extends only to removal from office,
and if the crime or misdemeanor charged be one
of a deep and wicked dye, the culprit is allowed
to run at large, tmless he should be pursued by a
new prosecution in the ordinary courts. What
does it matter, then, what the motive of the re- ,
spondent might be in bis repeated acts of mal
feasance in office? Mere mistake in intention, if
so persevered in after proper warning as to bring
mischief upon the community, is quite sufficient
to warrant the removal of tho officer from the
place where he is working mischief by his con
tinuance in power.
The only question to be coneldered is : Is the
respondent violating the law? His perseverance
in such a violation, although it shows a perverse
ness, is not absolutely necessary to his convic
tion. The great object is the removal from office
and the arrest of the public injuries which he is
inflicting upon those with whose Interests he is
Tho single charge, which I had the honor to
suggest, lam expected to maintain. That duty
is a light one, easily performed, and which, I ap
prehend, it will be found impossible for the re
spondent to answer or evade.
When Andrew Johnson took upon himself the
duties of his high office, he swore to obey the
Constitution and take care that the laws bo faith
fully executed. That, indeed, is and has always
been the chief duty, of the President of the United.
States. The duties of legislation and adjudi
cating the laws of his country fall in no way to
his lot. To obey the cones t de of the sovereign
power of the nation, and to , t that others should
obey them, was his whole do': —a duty which he
could not escape, and any ,ttempt to do so
would be in direct violatibn cI his official oath;
in other words, a misprision viper jury.
I accuse him, in the name of the House of
Representatives, of having perpetrated that foul
offence ! against the laws and Interests of his
On the 2d day of March, 1967, Congress passed
a law, over the veto of the President, entitled
"An act to regulate the tenure of certain civil
offices," the first section of which is as iollows:
"Be it enacted ba the Senate and louse ofßepre-
Jentatives of the United States of America mn Con
gress assembled, That. every person holding any
civil office to which he has been appointed by and
with the advice and consent of the Senate, and
every person who may hereafter be appointed to
any such office and shall become duly qualified to
act therein, is and shall be entitled to hold such
office until a successor shall have been in like
manner appointed and duly qualified, except as
herein otherwise provided : Prorble,d, That the
Secretaries of State, of tho Treasury, of War, of
the Navy, and of the Interior, the Postmaster-
General, and the Attorney-General s shall hold
their offices respectively for and during the term
of the President by whom they may, hays been
appointed, and for one month thereafter, subject
to removal by and with the advice and consent of
the Senate."
The second section provides that *ton the
Senate is not in session, it: the President shall
deem the officer guilty of acts which requite his
removal or suspension, he may be suspended
until the next meeting of the Senate; and that
within twenty days after the meeting of the
Senate the - , reasons for such stiapension shall ha
reported to that body' i and, if the Senate shall
deem such reasons sufficient for such suspension
