'titat Mr. NelsOnliavink Used improper
t•guagoin this tribunal, 'calculated' to pro-
yoke a duel antldisrespectful to the Court,
he deserved the censure of the Senate.
Senator SHERMAN objected to the coa

SUMNER objected to Mr. Nelson making
144 remarks, except in explanatiOn. But

Messrs.: Ruller;Lcigan and Mr' field, dated
Marcky 9th; also, a letter sent to the. Presi
dent by Chauucy Black,March 16th, enclos
ing's copy with additional signatures. -
Senator CAMERON offered an order for
night sessions, which went over.
I Mr.;.EVARTS, then maimed liiii.- - arFlk
4 ment. He assumed it to be already shown
; that this tribunalis a court, and that the
I President is to be tried only on charges
supported by law and evidence, and
common fame. He said ranch tnathad been'
~ elaborately advan.ced by the Managers must
; fall to . the ground. So must fall the
i articles based on charges which had been
I repeatedly rejected as fair grounds for Im
peachment. He referred to the conduct of
- the ease by the proseoution as similar to
; the practice of the Chinekie, who make a
great noise inthe vicinity of an object to
, I be attacked, or like the explosion of - some
~ two hundred and fifty tons of gunpowder
... at a safe distance from the walls of a fort.
i; He said in this case, where the evidence
'.I. had been suppressed, the enlargement of
: deelamation :and invective was more than
..', unusually improper. He also spoke in a
,' . l strain of sarcasm of , Mr. Boutwell's refer
once to the President's counsel as attor
.. , net's whose minds had not been sharp
' ened but enlarged by practise. He then
• ; considered Mr. 33ontwell's definition. of
ihlea,ncesrdarg:edatieugh4' that noaetcolboconstta
~ which did not proceed from malice and
.evil intention, supporting his view by quo
; tations from records of the Humphrey
..,•;Itrial, and also by the,language of Burke in
•accusing Warren Hastings, when he ex-
' 11 pressly stated that the assertion and proof
-Jof evil intent were indispensable. Mr.
', Everts held that the best way to determine
: .the nature of offences which may be deem
' fid..high..crimes and.., • rnisdemeanoss is to
consider the pnnioihrnents prescribed for
; themi•--Hereferred/tolheipithets . .a plied
'.'ibirthOilimagers tio- . ._ %-
• tiorr, and in forcible terns described - the
: -. . i character and magnitude of the disgrace
-: t twhieh such punishment iiivolves. He
5 claimed that the description of the
•.. Spenalties 'provided , in . the Tenure-of
. 10ffice law for its infraction . showed the
?Abe comparatively trivial nature of the
- -,offense. A maximum but no minimum
• of punishment is provided. So, in the dis
-- c-etion of Court before whom the indict
be let off with a fine of six cents and impris
, onment of one day. He read from the de
' : bate on this subject at the time when the
.• bill was proposed, fit which. Mr. Williams
- and other Senators said there should be no
minimum fixed, because the offense might
. .
arise - from inadvertence and would
not probably in any case have a character
•of moral guilt. Mr. Everts then' consider
*. ed the general debates on the bill and pro
. l imed to prove that the offence charged was
not made or to be' considered .penal ! but
• ~ more of a political nature, and their , that
even alleged infractions did not take place.
He claimed that all bellerof the President's
former personal turpitude must be laid
de, and it must be considered that he
.!. ~ was - unimpeachable before twelve o'clock

:.. : act could riot be considered as dangerous
to the public safety. On the contrary, it
would have beenbenefitted by it, because
: . . the relations existing between the Presi
':, • dent and Mr. Stanton were prejudicial to 'a
', pupal. working of the srovernment. .Hence
.; it %suited that the' crime"consisted in 4
.11 technical infraction , of the law, if it skill
i: , ... .e, so held. The law applied only in ga

be . unconstitutional : It relates 'to an of. :

Mr. Evarts next spoke of the- peculiar
situation-of the Couotry from which have
'spring" the preSent, prciceedings. He, re
ferred to the chaos caused by the rebellion,
and to the unprecedented social change
wrought by the emancipation of four mil

the part to be taken by the different
branches of the government, and as to the
application of the Constitution and laws in
the work of reconstruction, were immense
ly difficult and readily productive of hon
est differences. of opinion. He dwelt at
length on the complication caused by
political aspirations, and claimed that all
these considerationw were motives to avoid
or delay the action Of impeachment, to cure
evils which political action would itself
remedy. • He referred to on article in the

The following was received at General

"The election in Georgia passes off as

serious outbreaks only. There are many
complaints of frauds from both sides and
some applications for. re-election. The

The Fashions.
. .
[From the N. Y. Evening Po , t•J
' Bonnets are becoming smaller,
if possible, 1
and it is not improbable that in a short
time they will vanish like the gossamer
ouclomd a coiffure of lace and flowers,
without frame, be worn instead. The effort
to thrbii aside the Fanchon has not been
successfil, and it is now theprevailing style,
with a slight diadem against which the
flowers in front rest. ' -
The ladies, are, not willing to give up a
becoming style for a crown and standing
front that - detracts froni - a - pretty. face.
Spangled and , ctsrstalizecl lace, •as well as
plain white lace, are still much used upon
the ,bonnets, increasing the effect. The
_fleecy folds of rich lace harmonize with the
bright, youthful face, adding .to its beauty;
while they give a softening effect upon fea
tures on which time has left its impress.
Green will be the prevailing color in mil
linery at present, the bright shade of apple
green, which is darker than the Metternich,
predominating. The majority of the bon
nets are of thirmaterial, crape, illusion or
lace. Straws are not extensively used, but
most of the fancy braids are very .pretty..
Straw cords, bands and straw flowers are
used for decorating the straw bonnets.
The new style - of round hat has a high;
sugar-loaf crown, with a brim wider than
that of-last year, The new hat is of brown
straw, the ,crown sloping . up small andilat
on the top ; thebrim wider on one side than
the other, turns up, and is spanned .by a
velvet band. Rosette - leaves of ribborr Bur
mount this band, ' and black crystallized
lace caught up by the band and tied in a
loole knot, falls over the shoulder. It, is a
jaunty, sirens , ' hat. The bats with :low
crown, and narrow, drooping brim, will be
worn. A pretty one-of -white straw„luis a
fluted ribbon. around the crown, and the
' - edge bound with green Velvet, with scarf of
green froated lace. A showy round - hat is
. of pink silk,- with pink, spangled lace
streamers. The wide brim hate will be .used
later in the season for sea-side wear.
The ribbon's used on bonnets are Earner
tow, the fashionable 'width being number
sixteen. The very narrow is used for ties
where lace overstrings are attached to the
bonnet - White, straw color, blue, pink and
lavender are used to 'some - extent, but the
leading color in ribbons is green, and the
prettiest and most fagbionable shade is the
apple green. There has never been a great
er variety of flowers, or a more attractive
display, which will be much used in decor
ating bonnets. Indeed, the fashionable bon
net will be made up of lace or tulle, and
I clusters and Wreaths of flowers that dfop to
the shoulder. Among the recent importa
tions are beautiful vines with trailing ten
drils and leaves, and mossy verdnre that
closely resembles that of the forest.

and are gay and . attractive. Parasols are

Premature Burial.
IFrom the Israelite.)
The present practice of our,-people—to
bury their dead within some twenty-four or
thirty-six hours of their decease—seems re
prehensiblein many respects. The peril of,
premature burial is obvious: We - know so'
little of the theory and condition of death,
even in our present state of medical science,
that we cannot even be sure that life has
actually fled when the ordinary signs of
life have ceased. We cannot be sure that
the spirit has passed irrevocably, materially
speaking, from the mortal clay, even when
the heart ceases to beat; the lips to breathe,
the pulse to throb. •We Inow, that:per
sons apparently dead by drowning
have been brought . back life
a. lone Aim after!- the ordinary
. signs
of life have ceased to be apparent. We
know that skillful treatment has, under
Providence, restored respiration' and anima
tion some time after all apparent action had
left the respiratory organs and the animated
organism: Hence it is clear, that death does
not immediately succeed the apparent ces
sation of life. A man m aybe drowned and
yet not immediately die. If this be the case
is this cause ocdeath; may it not be true in
other causes producing death? May not the
vitalpower be only suspended ,and not ab
solutely extinct when it-appears ~ to those
around a patient's pillow that the'signs of
life have departed ?' '•
Xis possible that we can, in the name of,
religion, consign our loved ones to d condi
tion in which--if one spark of life. remain
or could be reanimated in their-lit must be
extingiushed utterly, irretrievably? I be
lieve that, decmposition, or the: beginning
of, decomposition is the only really -reliable
sigu'of death. *hen a physical' change of
this character commences to affect' the inert
frame, it is probably palpable' that the mys
tery which we call lifehas left it—left it un
it be recalled in unknown hour when,
as we believe, the dead shall wake again.
Strange to say, we do'not give to our sup
posed dead the last chance winch would .be
afforded by our ancient cpstoms, and proba
bly presc'ribed rites. ‘ Wo• do not,,as I be
lieve Our fatheri did; re-Open the - coffin at
the burial gionutl, before filially parting
with it in the . cold sods.' Why haVe we

His manners presented a singular. mitture
of gravity and levity. -
Unusually affable and gentle, so as
make even a refusal look an acceptance,
he burst forth at times into • a nnt- which
showed that the old Bersiker rage was net
dead within him. "By God and His
