Mr.' Joassoi, (Tenn.,) Contended that the

people of the United States feel , confidence in.
the loyalty of the Senator from Indiana? He
had often heard the inquiry among people, why
does not the Senate turn out Bright of Indiana?
He commented upon the letterand Room:dents.
He claimed that It was an overt act of treason
by aiding the enemy. 'The 'Senate was not
subject to the technical rules Of a court.
Suppose Aaron Barr, after he was acquitted
by a court of treason, had returned'to the Sen
ate, would not every Senator here have voted for
his expulsion ? But the Senator said this letter
was an act of friendship. Would a friend send
a letter to a known traitor, giving him the aid
of improved firearms ? By sending letters to
the chief traitor with aid of this kind, the
Senator showed himself so regardless of his
country's interest, that he is not entitled to a
seat in the Senate ?- Where' was the vote or
speech of the Senator from Indiana expressing
sympathy with the gonstitution and the Union?
When a year ago he (Mr. Johnson,) stood alone
on that side of the chamber fighting the battle
of the Union, has the Senator forgot the bevy
of conspirators who gathered around with
is „owls, frowns and taunts? If the Senator has,
he had not, and he knew the absence of even
one glance of approval from the Senator front
Indiana. He (61r. Johnson,) would have been
glad.of the sympathy, of one so long in the
service, but he was as cold as an iceberg.

of the chamber,'and the line' was strictly drawn
between those who were lighting for the Union
and those against it. Where were those who

Tare BRODMILION. WILL Cass.—A late San.
Francisco telegram mentions the fact. that
Judge Hogan has issued an injunction restrain
ing the sale of the Broderick estate, until the
question of forgery of the will is investigated.
It will be remembered that in January, 1860,
after the death of Broderick, a will was said to
have been found by Mr. A. J. Butler among
Mr. Broderick's papers at Washington. This
will purports to have been executed at New
York on the 2d of January, 1859. It is written
on a smell sized letter paper, the eignatare
within two lines of the top of the second page;
the seal a red wafer with an irregulir diamond
shaped paper impressed with a common stamp.
The subscribing witnes:es are . A. A. Phillipi and
John J. Hofl ; the legatees are John A.
McGleim, slo,ooo—"the rest, residue and re
mainde'r to my friend Geo. Wilkes." The law
ful heirs of the estate, cousins of Mr. Broderick,
reside in Ireland, but have now representativaEi
in San Francisco, who are endeavoring to defeat
the will. Some of the affidavits published by
the San Francisco papers, and - which are to be
put in court at the proper time, would indicate
that there were, to say the least, a good many
suspicious facts connected with the making and
discovery of this will, and it looks now very
much as if an investigation into the matter,
would reveal facts not particularly creditable to
Messrs. Wilkes, Butler and others who are
mixed up in the affair.
Tim Tow; or. Romnsv , VA.—As Romney is
becoming a place of some notoriety as a strate
gic point, a short description of the town and
its vicinity' may prove interesting to many of
our readers. The town itself is beautifully lo
cated, resting upon the South Branch of the
Potomac, about eighteen miles from its junction
with the North Branch. It is surrounded on
all sides with diclivitous hills and mountains,
and if well fortified would be almost impregna
ble to an advancing army. It has been in a
measure fortified by nature, and only needs the
hand of science to make it a powerful post for
purposes of defence. It is forty-two miles from
Winchester, on the Baltimore and Ohio rail
road, and twenty-five miles south of Cumber
land, Md. It is the shire town of Hampshire
county, and contains about five hundred inhab
itants. The town was founded by Lord Fair,
fax, and is one of the oldest in that section of
THE PENNSYLVANIA OIL REGION. —The ship
ment from the Pennsylvahia oil region, for the
present month, over the Philadelphia and Erie
railroad, are estimated at 80,000 bble., taxing
the railway to its full capacity. The oil
trade is becoming a very important one and
the business ofefining it. and preparing It for
use is also profitable. ' It is a business that In
Philadelphia can becarried on very successfully,
and our manufacturers could not possibly
their enterprise and capital In a channel more
remunerative. Thi oil'is afforded at a price
which makes it the cheapest light now burned,
and it is equal to gas in its - illumhisting quali
ties.' The direct railroad communication be
tween this , city and the oil region will give our
manufacturers advantages not possessed by
tbdaelif other °ldea: 'These will be largely in
creased When the' Esintiury mid Erie railroad is
