How the Case is 'to be Closed.
Mr. Stanbery is , to close the Impeach
ment case, , preceded by Everts.
Whether the othei members of counsel
will speak depends upon the attiiin of the
Senate. Then rule in• ,the 'twitter pre
scribes that the case shall be closed by two
on'each" side,' Unless the Senate Will agree
that the managers themselves , Will ask
that thei rule he suspended for them and
if this is, done, counsel will rlceive the
same indulgence. It is known that Gen.
Logan- desired to -speak. Gov: Boutwell
has been assigned the General, gumming
