air. CHANDLER moved the Senate take
up the resolution offered by him on Satur
day last, Instructing the Judiciary Commit
tee to Inquire whether Andrew Johnson,
Vice President and acting President Of the
United Suites, had any authority to ep.
point Provisional Governors for the States
recently In rebellion.
Mr. CHASIDLER said: I think this reso
lotion very Important at this time. If. the
President had no authority of law under
the Constitution to appoint Provisional
Governors for the States lately In rebellion,'
then the action of those Governors falls.
There have been no governments octal-'
liehed over these States if the Inception
itself was illegal. Now, sir, I desire that
the Committee on Judiciary should make
early report upon this subject. it In duo to
the Fri:midi:at, and to the country-, that
these points shall be settled, anal settled at
un early day. I am not a lawyer. and am
hardly competent to decide for myself
still less for the Senate, whether there was
any such authority. We know, Sir. Pr.'.
dent, that when Andrew Johnson. through
the bullet o J. Wilkes , became
dent-of the f
United States, booth the rebels Pres'. had
laid down their arms, and all of these rebel
States were bold by the military power.
Andrew Johnson had a right to appoint
Military Governors, not only - for every one I
Of the States lately in rebellion, but for
every city, bait he seen tit so to is. The '
laws of war -axe as well understood as the
Constitution and laws of peace. They reg
ulate and control all civilized nations.
When President Lincoln desired is govern
-meet in Tennessee, ho appointed Andrew
Johnson Brigadier General In thearmy, and
as a Brigadier General in the U.S. army he
appointed him Military Governor of Ten
nessee. -This he had a right to do as Com
manclerdn-Chief ; but, Sir, it was another
•and different thing to appoint a Provision
al Governor. I believe, Sir, It is an °Mee
.Unknown to the Conetilution and laws of
our government, and an ollice which In nay
Judgment be had no authority to create.
These Govoroosa were nottient to the Senate
for confirmation, nor would It hare made
them any more Govern°s if wo had eon
' firmed them, because the Senate and An
drew Johnson toglithereould met have cre
ated the office 11 there was not the author

then it required the Bonsai of

have said, we heal a right to hold these
States by military power and forces. These
laws of war have been changed from ago 10
ego. They - are arbitrary. They are simply
the will of the conqueror. Calder the laws
Of war In ancient thnes„ ini 'loners were re
morselessly put to death. These laws. from
age to age, botanic modified; but as Into :::1
J WY. lirie, the laws of war empowered the
conqueror to levy all expenses of war upon
the conquered. I if Andrew Johnson, In vio

and if it he true, AndrewJolloson should be

:duel, of the success In rolling thin im

Clean, Esq., (of the firm of Idcmrheati a Co.)
by which a reverse motion of the rolls as
secured, when the Won has pemsed undei
them, avoiding the plan generally in use In
rolling mill., and with which our readers
are familiar, of passing the Iron or, the
rolls on Its backward :notion. Of course, It
would be impossible to do this, with inch a
mass of iron, end enact - Mr. MeChaus's valu
able Invention the plate simply pusses back
wards and forwards under the rolls,until its
desired form is secured.
This massive plate of Iron to to be taken
to Fortress Monroe, and when buttressed by
heavy walls of masonry, will become the
target against which the Ordnance Bureau
will be called upon to exerelse all its skill
and powers of destruction. Of course it is
not anticipated that any mess Of iron will
over be framed capable of resisting the
continual pounding of projectiles from fif
teen and twenty melt guns; hot actual war
fare is so different from target prac
tice that it to believed some ouch system
of heavy Iron plating may be applied to sea
Oast fortifications, so its to render them
impregnable to successful assault from the
heaviest known artillery.
It Is a signiecant tact, illustrative of the
skill of the workers in Iron, of our emoke-ne
grimed city, that, while at the • Fort rm.
Works, on the Allegheny river, the largest
cannon male lu any part of the NVOrILL are
regularly term:clout, lintslied and complete
for the artillerist, that, at another establish
ment, scarce a mile distant, workmenjmit 1/3
kiliful are planning dcfentcs designed lobe
impregnable to the assaults of the Fort Fitt
cannon. The rivalry of thti scientific gen
tlemen, to their °tikes at the War Depart
ment at Washington, is thus communica
ted to Our mochanles, and becomes an in
centive to honorable competition on their
Manettester Railway Company and
the Snapensdon Bridge.
A correspondent urges that we did Mins

Passenger Railway Company in our report
of the 'case now in the Court of Quarter
Sessions, relative to the toils to be prla by
said company to the Suspension Bridge. Ile

In IM) u enutmet uces entered into be
tween Lae companies by which the rates of
toll were tiled at voo_ per annum for the
small cars, sad 4M) per annum for the large
ones. These rates were, however, found to
be so exorbitant and so touch beyond the
ability of the Railway I'c:tu4,my to pay,
that they were at once reduced to 6189 and
VAC respectively, and the original rates of
contract were never exacted for one single
mouth. Since tend time the rates bare
been advanced to e 2.10 and 6.110 respectively;
and these rates are now being paid.
The contract expired over a year ago, and
since that time the Railway Company has
made application repeatedly to the Bridge
Company to reduce the rates! tolls and give
them a contract fora term of ..,ars. They
were wilting to pay a fair fixed rate for
crashing the bridge, bet they were not wil
