' The Court openpd with the usual formal
ities, and Mr."I3MGIUM at once resumed
with' a _re4tate
ment of his. ppimittion,tpat the acts of
1789 and 1795 'h6ti -- -c*iscd to be laws, but
• • • :d.--ttets^ gtmr-to the
‘-siropfdinit:itirtilwiiit&Sll - ..iiiiiincies in the
offices of the hesids of ? Dpptaitments
out the consent of the Senate. The! alt of
1789 permitted him to create a
vacancy Out Department, but - restricted
him to the choice of the Chief
Clerk to.flll It. Theltet ; of 1795, went fur
' ther; applying'to other' Departinents; but .
d‘the ,e.etTnissiou to .a ~term of six
months - anti was thUS clearly a grant of
power,: ~ a nd -41,u1,t ) too,. a restricted- grant.
The act of 1863 abrogates the statutes of
1789 ardt. 1795 - and , again restricts .hip)' in
his choice of ad, interim aPpoiittees. ttthus'
appears, in all the legislation on the sub
ject, that the entire control of Congress
over it is assumed and illustrated.
Mr. Bingham then'cited pottions of the
Tenure-of-Office act, to show that they su
perceded the previous acts referred to. He
also claimed that the argument of Mr. Cur
tis asserted, -, t,hat the beads of-Departments
appointed byr President -'l.lriboln were not
within the proviso, and adopting this inter
pretation, he saidit followed that they were
covered l*r the body of the sotion. He pro
ceeded to argu e
_ tidspoint at length, main
taining that the Pr*dential term of four
years continued after a President's death or
liocipi p ssors serving out the
unexpired tiortion, otlietwise , the appoint
ees of - a Vice- President would have to va
cate their offices'one month after the disa
bility of the Presisient should be removed.
The wordAig of the act is not the term du
rinmatdeirthey were,. appointed, but the
term Of the President by whom they were
appointed. There was no such intention
in the minds of its framers, and the act can
not be se construed. He argued that the pro
viso had no retrospective action and did
not, for the purl:motor Ille.R9tigteke a new
%Then combatting the position of Mr.
Groesbeck, that if Mr. Stanton was not
protected by the Tenure-of-Office act, 4Wie
first eight articles must fail, he argued att

pointnientfiranted him by.the acts of 1789
and 1795 was abrogated by the act of 1867;
ISAAC ietked,trWwere such lengthy ar
guments made in the attempt to prove the
unconstitutionality of that law, if counsel
did not.feeatid know,that Mr. Stanton was
protected by , it and that it repealed all for-'•
mer grants of'poiver to remove and appoint
the heads of. Departments. , •
He alluded -pontereriCei , having been
held between the Tissident and Thomas,
in relation to the advisability of suspend
ing the execution of their schemes until,
the result of the trial should be known.
Referring to the language of Mr. _Nelson,
who said that the. President was, willing to
abide the trial, he regretted his Highness
had not signified hilt:pleasure to abide the.
judgment us well. Mr. Bingham charac
terized the Presidente intimation, through
his Counsel, Mud, he did not believe the
Senate was 'duly , constituted to sit as a
Court so long es' any of the States were un
represented, as a pieee of:arrogance, and he
(Mr. Bingham) would riot be surprised if
the. President to-morrow should issue- a
military order dissolving the Court. In
such 'case their' answer would be in the
words of Mirabeart, which he proceeded to
He dam referred to 'the President s lan
ge to 43en.Emory as a suggestion to the
der-in-Chief, that he would stand
by him ilia Violation of the law. This, ta
ken in , penneetion with .his declaration to
Grant; would,' in any other country, have
br i st4ficient to cost his head. It was not
' rgel ti be Sneered 'at, as frier‘- believed'
lfie counsel had done. 2"
• Mr. Binghaea then/ took up article ten
and argued that the President's language
-not pay- violated decency, but was the bin
- - guage- of sedition. •He also claimed that
'•; • the sedition law so often referred to as un
constitutional, had neirer been so pro
".. pounced by the Courts; It was necessary
in time ""of danger. and, under Mr. .T.effer
, son, , its -• - . provisions had* been re
- -.enacted so far as to apply - to
persons 'in military or naval ser
•• ' 1 - sice; "Inifteirpithrialonit remain in 'force.
He -further defined • that seditious
utterances Wally Executive officer aro In--
dictihks under the common law ;In the Dis
trict Columbia. , He stood for a virtuous,
' Constitutional liberty of speech, but-Against ~
a seditious Morels, yridoh would shake the
security of. 'a peaceful government and
reach even the dead in their grayes.
Reviewing the e of the eleventh'
article,•he. said GoV4 S' telegram was
not, introduced to prove &violation of the Its
, construction acts, which were indeed' posed'
six months ihWegristitly, -tint inSupport
of the allegation that. he_ opposed tlie rati

that of an honest man; His whole purpose

terms the considerations which, he claim
ed, should influence a_vote for conviction,
and expressed his assured confidence that
this should be the happy result:
As he tookhis seat, a large number of
persons- in theWanselv crowded galleries
broke' out in prolonged applanae, where
upon the CIL ' JUSTICE, in indignant
ordered the Sergeant-at-Arms to
clear the gallery.
Some delay ensuing, Mr. GRIMES moved
that the order be enforced.
Mr..CAMERON hoped that it "would not
be done, as a large portion of the spectators
had not shared the sentiments which called
forth the applause; but it was enforced, and
at 2:30, every one was turned out and the
Court held a session with closed doors, the
House still being in attendance.

In the meantime, a motion offered by Mr.

In reply to a .qupstion by Mr. Conkiing,
the Chief Justice stated that it bed not
been his intention to exclude the reporters,
and he was just going to submit the ques
tion to the Senate when Aft. Conkling:s in
luiry was made.
Pending the consideration . of the various
orders heretofore submitted and referred as
to the mode of voting, and the question of
admitting reporters to the ffnal delibera
tion, a recess was carried.
After ;some delay in re-assernbling, the
Chief Justice called the Covirt to oideY, - and
said the case would be considered closed on
both sides if neither had anything to offer.
Mr: HENDRICKS then moved that the
pending order be considered in open session.
The CHIEF JUSTICE said it could, be
done by unanimous consent.
Several Senators objected.
Mr. EDMUNDS moved to amend by pro
viding that tne doors be clOsed for deliber

closed the doop for consultation. There

with the Managers. - 1
Mr. STEVENS asked leaVe to make a
personal explanation, which was accorded,
and proceeded to state that some time early
in the session some person, whose name he
did not recollect, asked hint what was the
law of nations in case_the citizens of one
country were in quiet possession of an Is
land, and had been forcibly ejected by an
other nation in favor of otherelaimants.
He (Mr. Stevens) had not forgotten the
heated discussion relative : to the Falkland
Islands—a pile of barren rocks, of no value,
except so far as national honor was con
cerned—and he answered that the „nation
whose citizens had been forcibly ejected
would bejustified in reinstating them so that
they might settle their bill in the or dinary
way. He declined`to give a written opin
ion, as he was not in the prisetice of the
law, and beard no- ore of the subject until
about two months ago General Garfield
called-at his (lib. Stevens') seat with a
paper or letter, which was a cony of the
opinion he (Mr. Stevens had yen, and

a., • revolution - has . been accomplished,
and we no longer - live ,
the government ' ' we have sworn
support.. This is the* ordeal through
which the.couritmis passing. It is not the

demand the solemn considerition of theAm 7
erinin:people, for with them at^ last the de
cision rests. , The finances are satisfactory
and the school fun& and charitable institn
tutions'are flourishing. The Governor rec
ommends a;revision in the Constitution in
