THE . ARGUMENT of Manager Williams
was finished soon after noon yesterday. .He
was followed by:)f.r. Evans, for the Presi
dent. When he' concludes, an argument
will be 'read 'or bled by Mr. Stanbery, and
Mr. Bingham then concludes the case,which
is not - likely to be submitted to the, Senate
earlier than Saturday.
Tan revenue of Great Britain is collected,
it is stated, at a cost of nearly six per cent.,
while our own Treasury gets its`dues at an
expense of per cent.' for internal taies
and 3 per cent. for customs. It is not the
cost of collecting our receipts that the people
complain of: it ,is the rascally frauds by
which the Government utterly fails to; get
much that it is• entitled to.
AN informal caucus , of Republican Sena
tors on Saturday, last resulted in an under
standing that the impeachment trial should
be brought to a conclusionwithout needless
delay. Of course, the_rumor, telegraphed
from Washingtimby Tom, Dick and Barry,
that a verdict would be purposely delayed
until after the Chicago Convention, like
the other stories that half a dozen Republi
can Senators, more or leas, would vote for
acquittal, mere kiosk •
TIIE additional information which from
time to time transpires, relative to the treaty
of expatriation recently negotiated With.
Prussia, confirms the general confidence in
the justice and completeness of its provis
ions. A letter from Minister BANCROFT,
laid before the Senate on Monday, reiterates
las previous eiphtmitions of its intent, upon
Which Count Butunites is, in full _acrord.
Our German-born citizens, inivingbe,en duly
naturalized, axe entirely released from all
military obligations in their native land,
and no prosecution ' for an imauthorizad
emigration car he'Permitted. There can be
no longer a reasonable doubt that this treaty
was considered by the contracting powers
on either side as a complete and decisive
-declaration of the right of expatriation;
without any reservations or subtle distinc
tions whatever.
TICE FOG is clearing up from the Georgia
election, late returns indicating the success
of the Republican State and Congressional
tickets by decisive majorities. We trust
that it may not be necessary to report a dif
ferent result a day or two heace. Had the
Rebel-Conservative-Democracy in fact car
ricd that State, as they have steadilyclaimed
up to yesterday, the fact would. not have
been without its consolations to 'Republi
cans. One solitary Democratic success un- ,
der the Reconstructionlaws, in either of the
Southern States, by the aid of the colored_
vote, would put an effectual stop to all their
'tbuncombe" appeals in behalf of a "svhitb
man's government". The doubts as to the
result in Georgia have been entirely due to
the' very large support winch the colored'
Voters of that State gave to the Democratic
'ticket. ;
Rzrunics to the License Court, from the
city of Pittsburgh with its single suburb of
Lawrenceville, show that the enormous;
amount of two millions of dollars' was re- .
ceived, in the district last year for Bales of
liquor by retail dealers. Add to this tlu3
amounts received: by dealersin the populous
districts which cover the farther banks of
the two rivers, including Allegheny City,
Birmingham and thele.sser municipalities,
and we should have a total swollen to - at
least three millions of' dollars---a sum really
frightful when we consider that its utterly
useless expenditure has been attended not
only with a proportionate denial of /the Com
forts and even of the necessaries of life to.
thousands of lingering families, but also
with a very large responsibility for all the,
outtages and crimes of the past twelve-.
month in the county of Allegheny. •

A CORRESPONDENT Of ‘a - New York- jour
nal. comments upon the complete omisSion
of .one strong and remarkable point from all
the 'arguments of counsel on either
side of impeachment, but which is
correctly spoken 'of as forming an
important element in the case against the
President. It is this—that, the- order from
the latter to Gen.- TnomAs was, scr far re
garded by the latter as a military ot•der,that
he considered- it 'as' nstifyini the Use' of
force, if needed to carry it into. effect; that,.
as a military. order, the lawof 1867 required
Rio be issued only throigh General Gitazir;
failini in which, the Presideig.was',guilty
of a. misdemeanor as charged; that if con
strued as a civil order, Gen. •TnomAs' as
sent was required, latch; berni in fad
given, Would sustain the charge of conspi
racy. In military Circles at the 'Capital,.
this is the dileinina. in wliioh,,the Breaident
is understotiete be entrapped. They say
that a military order itself implies the idea
of force; its actual use is not essentially
necessary. They'add, moreover, that 'Gen.
THOMAS was selected as the President's tool,
not because he was a weak man, but, be-
Cause, as Adjutant General, he was GRANT'S
official channel of communication with the'.
army, which would thus have been as ef
fectually seized -as Gnaw, himself. 'seized
PEIIERERTON' s below Vicksburgh. , The cor
respondent adds:
This point has been the subject of much
discussion among military men, who quickly
discovered the serious ramifications of the
order in a, military sense, and who saw at a
glance that in seizing the office of Secretary
of War and Adjutant. General combined, in
the person of Gen. Thomas, the President.
seized the army, the Preedmen's Bureau
and the Military' Reconstruction, policy of
Congress by the throat.
Messrs. MoonnEn); 'ILAT'S.kit,D and
NintAcx, the Sub-Committee of the Ways
and Means, to which lies been confided the
duty of Preparing the draft •of a Tariff bill
for the consideration of the main Cotmnit
mittee, will find themselves charged with
difficult and delicate responsibilities. It
may be Pio much to hope for that their
labors should result In the adoption, not
only bythe Committee,.but by both Houses
of CongreSs, at this late period of the ses- ,
sion,, of a general tariff, wisely andcouipre:
hertsively drawn, meeting all the exigencies .
of the Treasu.ry,, and treating our maltase
turmg interests, singly.. and wllectivly,.
with considerate justice. A task of such
magnitude ?nay well absorb the whole of an
ordinary session: - - when freined and
submitted to the House for, debea, the his
tory_ of preiitous tarifridlls shows clearly
enough that the work is but fairly begun ;
and that, like all ; its predecessors, any gen
eral measure when once proposed gives
rise to a protracted debate upon its multi
farious details.
Unquestionably, it is desirable, if practi.
cable, that the entire legislation of the coun
try, relative to the collection of duties upon
importa and of.the internal excise, should be
taken up, cOntidered and adjusted as awhile,
symmetrically, and with a just reference to
the needs of the treasury and the reasona
ble demands' 'Of our Productive indusiry.
But we regard it as unlikely that any gen
eral measure of thi§ sort will be perfected
into a law at this session. If Congress shall
succeed in disposing.'satisfactorily of a few
special matters which are most- urgently
inviting their attention,it „be- as-much
as we are likely to see accomplithed now.'
The indications are all against any protrac
tion of the present session, after such public
business as is of ' the most pressing import
ance shall have been disposed Of. A new
aihumistration is about to assume the exe:
cution of the laws. , The revenue, system of
the country, as it is arranged by existing
statutes, has been hitherto faultily or cor
ruptly eilministercd by the officers in charge.
The conviction is universal that .the substi
tution of honest and capable men in their
places will result in a very large increase of
the public income. Let us realize that con
fidence in the results of the
'change. Let us secure the ample returns
which must follow an honest and efficient
enforcement of the preient,laws, arid the re
filled treasury of s the nation will simplify
malty difficult questions, both in the tax
'upon imports and In the internal exam,
and, with the _preservation of the national
credit amply insured, will o nutke it easy to
grant to our industrial, interesnr such Du
titer concessions' as they may reasonably
If a general revision of the =tariff and in.
ternal taxes should fail at this session, as'is
probable; Congress will re-assemble in De
'comber, to meet the question deliberately,
with freshened perceptions of the public re
qdrements and of the special claims of the
various industrial interests, and . with a fair
knowledge of the real worth of the present
tax-laws when honestly administered. We
are confident that these law's, as they now
stand, will be found, 'when enforced' once
more by competent and faithhiefileers, to
be justly exempt freta a large share.of the
-Preient'o4tplairits. It is as linter to judge

The representation,,,of the 4 XXIId district,.
by Hon. Jiiise R. MOORELEAD, Will termi
nate with the present Congress. He abso
lutely and positively declines to be a candi
date for a re-nomination. In a letter dated'
Washington, April 24, 1868, and addressed
to a gentleman of this city, ho says : "I
" stated last June to the County Convert
"tion that I could not be a candidate for
"nomination._ My,mind has undergone no
"change. lam not a candidate. I did not
"decline in favor of any person, but be
"cause I desired and determined to retire.
Geri. MOonnmeo has represented his fellow
citizens of this district with ability and con
spicuous fidelity, and will retire from their
service at Washington with an esteem and
confidence not only unimpaired but in
creased,'and with an equally high National
reputation worthily won. The city of Pitts
' burgh has been in many ways the gainer by
committing her interests in Congress to the
especial- chaige of a Representative whose
personal and official influence have been sec
ond to none in the National Councils, and
who bears with him in his retirement the
'sincerely, grateful acknowledgments of an
intelligent and patriotic constituency.' -
'Upon the - Republican Convention of tie.

EDITORS GAZETTE:' While the 22d Con
gressional district seems to be busily at
work to secure the right man, to succeed
Gen. Moorhead, the 23d district seems to be
doing nothing. ProbalilY the people of this
' district are waiting to know whether our
`present able member, Thos. , Williains; de
sires a renomination. I hope they will not
wait for that, but at once come out and offer
him the nomination and insist on his accep
tance. There are cogent reasons why we
should not, at this particular tiine, dispense
with 'his valuable services. Ile has been
faithful, to his pledges, and stood at all times
squarely on the Republican platform, and

county to 'have two new members at the

Competition of thc Sexes.
There is no fear whatever that man will
ever - suffer in the long run from the compe
tition of women. There mustalways be a
large class of avocations which only men
can follotv successfully. All callings which
require tough nerve, a certain coarseness
of mental texture, and the faculty of con
tinuous attention from year to , year, must;
in the nature of things i be closed against the.
majority 'of women. The sensitive
imitati*eness of the sex will forbid
such pursuits to women in general,
and: a. larger field of intelleetual ex
ertion- must therefore remain essentially
masculine. But the utmost that can happen
is that men should be diverted from tasks
which require but a portion of their facul
ties to others in which all their powers will
be exercised .and. rewarded. And such a
distributionOf lebor, so far as it was crea
ted, would necessarily act beneficially on
the whole community. But in fact, much
' less than this world probably be effected.
Three years are but a small portion of life,
and , however Well a woman may
employ them, she cannot change
herself 'into the working machine which
nine men out of ten are forced to become.
It will still be in most caseii her lot to -Tiring_
up children, and act as the helpmate of her
husband; but the better she is educated the
mora:atie will exemplify the truth that a
helpinatiito man should help him in every
part of •his nature. His mental constitution
liailitherto been treated as somewhat be
yond her power. To carry the influence of
woman into this province will- be the busi
ness of the neiv F7emale University.—St.

a number of young men in Pennsylvania

army, and wrote to the Superior of the Be

Antonelli and the Papal Secretary of War :
"These two" persons simultaneously de
clared that they did not want soldiers from
America; that the Papal army was a ready

it, and that at any time they could obtain
from Belgium, Hollaud or France volun

Condition of the Treasury. I
The balance sheet of the Treasury De
partrae,nt will, at the end of this month,
present a much more cheerful aspect than it
did at the close of the month of March.
The drafts upon the Treasury - from 'ithe 4
Navy and War Departments for the twenty
three days of the present month amounted
to but $4,700,000, and it is -- esgmated that
the aggregate of all drafts . for April ;upon'
the Treasury to suPply the demands of the
.Navy and War Departments will not ex
Geed $7,000,000; •
The public debt , statement for this month
will show a reduction of the liabilities or
thellovemment of about $10,900,000. • The
receipts from customs still come- in encour
agingly, and have reached $11,400,000 for
the twenty-three days ending, yesterday.
During thesame Period the receipts from

Yx BOSTON they have a "iiilkinspector,'",
whose business it is toskeep the milk vett- -
ders of that city straight. He has.recently
made a report of his doings in 1887, from
which it appears that he - Inspected during
the year 1,747 samples Of milk, of which he
' found 620 adulterated. jOf these the • aver.
age amount of adulteration .was
,82.. per
cent., the chief artielC used hieing • water. •
The smallest adulteration in any sample
was 14 per cent., and the largest amount in
any, single , sample nearlY,s6 per cent. • Upon
thestinvtkigations he 'procured the indict
ment during the year of twenty-one Milk
dealers, nineteen of whom were convicted
by the Boston Collide. The'aily supply of
milk in Boston is 17,493 gallons, and it is,
sold at eight mitts a quart retail.
bout""fashionable weddings," says that
one of the sweetest girls I know told nie
that she asked such and such' people to.
Wedding—vulgar; miserable acquaintances
as they were—because she knew' that they
would give her presents. Indeed, she con
fessed, without the slightestshamefacedness,
that she gave a wedding on account of the
tariffaystem. 'lt will be such a help toward
housekeeping," she strikingly remarked. It
is an incredible fact that wedding Presents
are hired from the jewelers, and labeled
',with the names of suppositious 'relatives, to
make up the melancholy display: It is a
horrible sequence that policemen should lie
placed on guard over theladen tables during
THE Ramie fibre is beginning to become
an article of trade in New Orleans, and one
merchant of that city has received orders for,
it from New, York, and offers double the
market.rateof cotton for all he can obtain.
A 'demand for the fibre is, also' springing up
: in the West, but no definite orders for it
from that section have yet been received at
New Orleans. Regarding the merits of
Ramie, the Picayune says it is, as good as
linen cambric. or silk, and when it comes
into use, the wearer will find that- "the chief,
difficulty will be, that it will Snot wear out
when the fashion changes, andte will hate
to throw it away; when, after a couple of
years' wear, it instill as good as new:"
