, • • - SENATE. , '
'Ater the reeding, Of the lbOtial,
GINGHAM comruenopd the final argument
foi -tti ,
fie - Vitiitaintliiii. I 'Pietestini , tlitte , he
took part in thesti,proirdings from no
partizan feelings, but with a weighty sense
of Ilibritilllafdaty - iififfTryle ' - taaillfig; he'
proceeded to state tlitit's ?attending on
the asaitasinationtifitesident. Lincoln and
the accession of A. Johnson to the Presi-:
dency.' Referring to his oath to execute
the laws,
.he spoke of. their majestic su
premacyin our form of government, and
claimed that the President was equally
subjlia tritheirf'-autherity with tlie lium:.
blest frontier settler.- He dwelt on the high
trust committed to the Senate and asserted
that the issues of life and death to the Re
'public hung on their. decision. He asked
how the charge of violet:in of-the Supreme
law was met by the counsel who, for hire
defeadtliteationof the respon
tl p by the oottsgeous.assertion
that Odell ranch' 'of - the Goverfinitait had
the right to judge of the :constitutionality;
of the laws and obey them or not at plciii?,
sure. This was the defence.
Mr. Bingham held that the Senate, by up
holding this proposition
. 'would lay the
foundation for a monarchy first, and anar
chy next—if reign of chaotic darkness. On
this issue; which, in spite of lawyers' tricks
and special pleas, was the real question in
volved, their :decision must stand for trial
by the people. He" repeated the question
was, whether, the President could be held to
answer for a violation of a law. He held
First—That the Senate had the sole power
to decide every question of, law .or of feet
arising. They were also the final arbiter s 's, ,
and the frequent attempts of counsel to
bring the Senate and Courts in opposition
were miserable devices to divert attention.
He would not imitate the aliiqnent counsel,
(Mr. Everts) who had shown himself an
eater up of syllables, , a snapper-up of
trifles, who had displayed more Latin
then-,law,. more. -rhetoric than log-i
its, i. , and) trier& 'intellectual! pyrotechnic
than either. He also referred to the length
of Mr. Everts speech by saying that he
'l,llfierbtreutiler it Imiziortalh7.4/mlcing it
eternal.' Mr. Bingham held airiaply :mit*
the Senate was the gupretne and final judi
cial tribunal of the United States. Sc ttethe
argument which had been made at such in
terminable length; tifid the Supreme Court
was the . Court of the.. last resort
for the decision of constitutional "ques
tions, he held that it had no more to do
with the present question than the Court of
St. Petersburg, and the judgments of
this tribunal could not' be 'efeeted ,by the
decisions of the Supreme Court made be
fore or after the imeeschment trial. He
argued that the , original jurisdiction of the.
, Suprenie Court did not extend to ' impeach
ments,aud that. their refereopea- to, its de.
cisions Wei% Irrelevant Mid theirleguinents
on this point without colorable excuse.
He then considered the,proPositien ad
vanced by the counsel that the heads of.
Departments were merely the registering
-Secretaries of the President, bound? tcrdo
his'will. Reading from the decisions of the
Suprethe- Court, in the,eilie qiiiitikfl•iy lirr.
'Everts; he claimed- that it was therein
plainly?' laid down that such officers
were Mend, by Jaw -and, not by the Presi
dent's will. He alsOclaimed that the other
position—assumed by all of the President's
counsel-.that- be t , youldsit in, lodgment on
the validity of latiis was overthrown by ttre
decisions of the sanie,tribunid, thirty years
ago, which decisions had never been ques
tioned; he proceeded to read etztireets from
them. ?He ftirther assertedwtha the exato
torney-General was wholly inexcusable in
attempting to force into . -this , til,
as an mithorlW; 2 li decision of the pre sen t
presiding officer iti the Mississippi ,
and.argued that it. had no Velevaney what
ever to the question - hi dispute,. Heclaimed
then that it wasproved that we cOuld not
allow to the President the disciretiOnas to
which law he would Obey without interpohit

,that an open r vicdation,of law by the,Presi

not destitute of duty. He said the defense
ofthe Prbsident, as exhibited in hisanswer,
rests on the assurntitiork e that.,,lorpossesses
the right to ' 'resist and 'bring 'to judicial
decision any law which he supposes to
trench on his ,constitutional prerogatives.
Thia aSstricption-Ctaild befitadel pretend
ed excuse for refusing to execute any law
,whatever. Referring to the position as
sumed on this question:l)y '2lr. Everts he
read from a pamphlet written by Mr. Cur

view, !which-, he oomptendedas good lax.
He asserted that no than did wit admit
the assumption that the PreAdent possess

could deny his written °Men, could show
clearly his violatiori"Of law, and proved
him worthy of conviction. Mr. Bingham
then cite:ll4nd authorities to,show that the

their case alone can igdiaiance of law be
admitted as an- excuse. With re
gard to the defence that the President
suspended - Mr; Stanton under the Constittt-'
tion, and supplied the vacancy under the
law of 1797, he claimed the President's
answer showed a Tiolation of the law, for
he claimed that limited the tenure of such
appointments to, six months, andthe Pres
ident appointed General Thomas'for Odin
definite period. He then spoke of the ar
gument that a President is - bound to inter

unconstitutional: • The House was hostile

At a meeting of the Board of Trade to
night it was decided to invite the Wiscon
sin and Minnesota editors to visit St. Louis
during their pleasure trip in the latter part
of June. Hon. Henry T. Blow, Capt. Jas.
B. Hails and J. B. S. Lemoine were ap
pointed delegates to represent the St. Louis
Board of Trade at a meeting to be held at
Philadelphia,June 3d, to organize a Na
tional Boar of Trade. A committee, to
whom the matter had been referred by a
previous meeting, reported in faVor of -re
opening Bayou Monchac and submitted a
memorial to Congress, which was unani
mously adopted, setting forth the advan
tages to western interests generally of such
a work, and asking that body
to order a survey and make the
necessary appropriation to complete
the work. Bayou Monchac many
.years ago put out, from the Mississippi
river a few tulles below Baton Rouge, run
ning into Amite river, thence into Lake
Pontchartrain, with a channel depth suffi
cient to float ae, man-of-war. The

reach the interior of Alabama; and the

'Much interesting information is set forth' in
