The Radical National Convention Met in
Chicago on Wednesday, and orgtufired by
the election of ('en. Carl Schurz as tempora
ry Chairnian. Re-Governor Hawley, of Con
necticut, was chosen permanent President,
with the usual batch of Vice Presidents sod
Secretaries. Delegates are in attendance
from all the States and Territories, number
ing over five hundred in all. Gen. Grant
will be nominated by acclamation, and the
Vice Presidency will probably be given to
New England. The prominent candidates
are Wade, Wilson, Hamlin, Fenton and Col
IN the House on Friday, Judge Woodward
offered a resolution authorizing the appoint
ment of a special committee to inquire into
the conduct of certain Radical members of
the Missouri delegation, who had written a
letter to Senator Henderson of that State,
with a view of influencing his vote on the
impeachment question. Judge Werodwird,
in the resolution, very properly character
ized such conduct as :'an' infringement of
the rights and privileges of the Senate, an
obstacle to and subversive of, the cause of
justice, and calculated to bring dishonor up
on the House." • The Speaker, however,
ruled that the resolution was not a question
of privilege. Judge Woodward proposed to
amend it so as to make it such a question,
but Garfield, of Ohio, objected to its• mep
tion, and it was consigned to the fate of so
many more good measures.
We are pleased to learn from the Lancas.
ter Tutelligencer, that "iiteps are being taken
to test, before the Supreme Court, the con
stitutionality of the Registry act, passed by
the last Legislature. bir, Chalfant, of the
House of Representatives, from Columbia
county, declares that the journal of the
House shows that the act as passed, con
tained but three Sections, whiles,' printed in
the Legislative Record and in the Pamphlet
Laws, it contains twenty-one Sections.. He
charged in the House that it had been 'tam
pered with after it was passed, and asked
that a committee of investigation be ordered,
which was refitted by the Radical members.
The statement la a startling one, and we are
glad that it is going to be Investigated. The
constitutionality of the law will be tested at
the same time. Its sole object is to injure
the Democratic party, by throwing obstacles
in the way of the exercise of the right of
suffrage by the poor men, the masit - of whom
are Democrats, and is In perfect consistency
with the Radical policy of restricting In every
way the Influence of white men in the con
trol of our government, and extending that
of black men." -
No more palpable trick has been exposed
in a long period, than the recent widely an
nounced resignation of John W. Forney es
Clerk of the U. S. Senate. It has provoked
ridicule wherever Forney is known. .The
ostensible purpose of the resignation was to
enable him to be free to criticise the Sena
tors as he might Gee fit, but nobody doubts
that the programme was fixed up before
hand, and that he never expected the resig
nation to be accepted. In the Senate, Sum
ner moved to lay the resignation On the
table, the effect of which would be to con
tinue Forney as Secretary by failing to elect
a successor. To this Cameron, who hates
the Dead Duck, objected and moved the
resignation be accepted. But Sumner's mo
tion prevailed. Hendricks then moved the
resignation be accepted, and a Secretary pro
ten. appointed until a regular election could
be had. Sumner objected to the considera
tion of this motion, which would have made
Forney's resignation a resignation in earnest.
and It went over, so that no successor, either
permanent or ad interim, having been ap
pointed, Forney is still the Secretary with a
fat salary.
- In the whole history of American politics,
there has never been anYthiag so disgraceful
as the attempt of the impeachers to overawe
and intimidate the sworn members of the
"High Court of Impeachment" into perjuring
themselves by voting for the deposition of
President Johnson. The only thing approxi
mating to it in history, that we remember,
was the action of the Jacobin club, in Paris,
when it was in the habit of repairing to the
French Convention, compelling It by men
aces and open violence to carry out its blood
thirsty designs. Every day we see develop
ments showing the remarkable similarity be
tween the more reckless and violent of the
Radicals, and the miscreants who governed
France during the "reign of-terror."
What would be thought if such °Vide
pressure, arid violent menaces, as we now
see employed toward Senators to wring
trom them a verdict which they do not !v
-itae to be just were brought to bear upon
jurors in private cases, either civil or crimi
nal in the highest degree, and the perpetra
tors would suffer condign punishment. Yet
there is no case where such displays could
he mom rascally, or where they would have
Such a fatal etil..ct upon the peace of the coun
try, as this one in which they ire employed.
We shall soon see whether a miserable mob
Is to rule in thir-Government, or whether it
will be conducted in accordance with
the oaths and conscientious convictions of
the constitutional representatives of the peo
ple. •
TUE impeachers think that they nutke a
point against the independent Senators who
are against-Johnson's conviction, by a charge
ofinconsistency. The charge is that they voted
with the majority of the Senate on the 21st of
February for a resolution charging the Presi
dent with violating the tenure-of-office law
by the removal of Stanton.. Tide action of
the Senate amounts to nothing. It was taken
before .icapeachment, before the case had
been argued, before they heard the evi
dence involved in it. Therefore, Sena
tors, who, in a hasty manner e yes, we could
use ranch stronger language in relation to it,
for it was not only hasty, but grossly impro
per sad outrageous,—committed themselves
before-hand, are not to be harshly judged,
because they consider their vote after the
case has been properly presented to them.
Besides It does not follow that Senators who
believe that the President did violate the law,
should aeceasarly declare, by their vote, that
such violation amounted, in the view of the
Constitution, to a "high crime, and misde

who had been very M t leaving their sick
beds air the purpose of crating their votes.
It had been- previously decided is eancus
that the only one of the articles on which
there was a chance of conviction writ/the
eleventh, and it was accordingly decided that
the test should be made upon that one, leer
ing the others to be disposed of as circum

that any lawyer could drive a four-horse

that the Thirty-Ninth Congress las not a

but a Congress of part of the States ; thus de
nying the validity of their legislation, except
so far as he chose to approve it; and, in pus-,
nuance of tide declaration, attempted to Ere
vent the execution of the Tenure-of-Office
act, by unlawfully contriving means of pre
venting Edwin M. Stanton from resuming
the office of Secretary of War, when the Sen
ate had refused to concur in ids suspension;
and also attempted to prevent the execution
of thadtppropriation act of MarchlB67,
(as in article 9); and also the act of M arch 2,
1867, " for the more efficient government of
the rebel States;" thus committing a high
misdemeanor in office.
After the necessary preliniittarles, the vote
was taken with due solemAity, and was as
follows. The names of the Democratic Sen
ators are printed, in italic type:

There being fifty-four votes cast, and two
thirds necessary to convict, the Chief Justice
announced that the President hid been ac
quitted on the eleventh article. The tidings
were immediately dispatched over the.coun
try by telegraph, and within half an hour af
ter the verdict had been rendered, .every im
portant place in the Union had been apprised
that honesty and justice bad triumphed over
party madness and intrigue.
The bupeachers seem to have been dread
fully deceived in their calculations of the re
sult, Senator Ross, of Kansas, who voted
for acquittal, had never been doubted by
them, and their labors were Mainly expended
upon such men as Prelinghnysen, Sprague,
Willey and Anthony, who were suspected of
being alightly troubled with twitchings of
conscience. When his vote was recorded
against conviction, it fell upon them like an
avalanche, stud at one blow demolished all
their nice laid schemes of personal ambition
and party interest. The news of acquittal is
received with satisfaction by all except the
extreme Radicals, and public demonstrations
of joy have occurred in many places. After
the vote had been taken, knowing that the
same result would attend all the other arti
cles, the„ subject was postponed against the
urgent appeals of the conservative Senators,
and the Senate adjourned until the 28th inst.,
when the Chicago convention will have
closed its labors. This \ mLserable cowardice
—cowardice the more marked inasmuch as
the impeachers caucus forced the vote on
Saturday—was doubtless at the instance of
the friends of Ben. Wade, who feared that if
the question was settled that he could not at
tain the Presidential ()Bice by usurpation
that he would not receive the nomination for
Vice-president. Hence they preferred to
leave the impression upon the delegates, who
wanted . o/Bees or patronage, that if they vo
ted for Mr. Wade he shortly might reward
them with the patronage they desired. This
postponement, inasmuch as it is a clear ac
knowledgement of present defeat—and as it
is a wanton procrastination of* great public
question, leaving the nation in the utmost
anxiety as to the future—will have a wore
disastrous effect upon the, fortunes of the
Radical party than it' they had met the IssiLe
boldly, and bad stood up to it like men.
A tremendous pressure will be brought "to
bear to secure conviction yet on the other ar
ticles, but we are convinced that it will not
meet with success. It is untieritood that all
the Senators who voted against the eleventh
article are equally firm in their conviethm
that he is not guilty upon sillier of the others,
and several Senators are so positively:com
mitted against them that it cannot be believ
ed they will go back upon their expressed
opinions. We doubt if any of the articles
receive as ' large a support as the eleventh,
and one or two will nut receive half a dozen
votes. Our news on this point is confirmed
by the N. Y. Tribune, which, in au editorial
on Monday, remarkable- for its moderation
in comparison with its frothy ebullitions pre
ceding the vote, speaks as follows:
" The MALI was deliberately, and we doubt
nutjudiciously, selected as the article that
would command must votes. This tailing,
all tail. There may be those who deem it
wise and well to admit Senators front the re
constructed States and force- a verdict of
guilty by their votes; but we cannot concur.
It might have been well to defer the Im
peachment until those States should be rep.
resented lu the SenuteLbut, having It:Mated
it, we think it would not du to admit new
Senators to vote upon it utter the testimony
was taken and the argument closed."
IN the struggle oniaturtlay, which killed
the eleventh article and probably decided
the fate of Impeachment, Mr. Wade com
mitted the unpardonable shame of voting for
himself. Every instinct which could animate
a gentleman was violated in his rote ; and
was violated iu vain. Parliamentary and
Judicial etiquette he did not scruple to inr: ,
molate, and the immolation accomplished
nothing. We do not expect decency in men
of Mr. Wade's stamp, neither can we often
hOpe to see the absence of it so signally pun
ished. There was dignity in the spectacle
of Robespierre under his own gUintatttie ; and
of anua swinging on, gatlowa of his own
ruanuilicturs ; but. no sedsemlng feature
saves from*ridicule and contempt the figure
which is now presented to the eyes of Gods
and men by Ben. Wade.
IT is regarded as an offense, meriting in
vestigation by a committee of Outgrew% in
the President attempting to influence Sena
tors ; but no offense in members of Congress,
Governors of States or town meetings
threatening Senators, and demanding ofthein
that they shall vote, not se their cotuieleacts
dictate, but as outsiders desire. We do not

WE are glad to receive the assurance of
the Columbus (Ga.) Enquirer that "a majori
ty of the electoral votes of the ten States,
now undergoing reconstruction, can be given
against General Grant, and in favor of the
nominee of the New York Convention." If
this assurance is sustained, and the white
people of the South we know can do it, the
Democratic success this fall is no longer pro.
lematical, but is an absolute certainty.

Tun Senators from the Staley of California,

voted for conviction, while the vote of Con
necticut was divided. The people In these
States have overwhelmingly declared against
Radicalises, and If these people had been pro
perly represented in the Court of Impeach
ment, the vote for acquittal would have been
30 instead of 19, and the vote for conviction
would have been but 24 instead of 35. The
Radical party, like its leading organ in this
city, lives by "misrepresentation."
IT is &tumidy indicative of the esteem in
which the Republicans hold their leading
men, that many 'of them distinctly charge
bribery upon every Republican Senator who
lies pronounced against the conviction of the
President. It seems to be thought Incredible
that a Republican should act under any other
than corrupt motives ; and as the party Mo
tive is absent in the case of these Senators, it
—in Republican contemplation—logically
follows that they have made up their minds
upon some material indircement.

was a novel one to me for the IVbite House,
for as long as I remained with Mrs. - Lincoln,
I do not recollect ever having seen her with
a needle in her hand."
HERE is another specimen of the rarjous
methods of coercion employed to fix the
votes of Republican Senators. Senator Mor

account ofa rooster that had his head chop.

tlps2BthofFebruary, the cook of
a restaurant In San Francisco,-decapitated
three roosters, and on going out into the iard
again &few moments afterward,. he
find but two chiekeria. On looking around
more closely, he discovered the missing -roos
ter-walking around without his head I The
proprietors ofthe restaurant were acquainted
with the wonderful circumstance, and
they immediately had the rooster carefully
taken_ care of, and fed him"boiled milk by
means Of a small tube inserted In the throat.
Strange as it may seem; the rooster was
thriving nicely, and the severed neck had
nearly healed over. Time chickenwas placed
on exhibition in a popular garden in San
Francisco, and thousands of people were ad
' wilted daily td see it.' The correspondent
from whose letter we derive these items, saw
and critically examined this headless rooster,
I and certifies to the truth of the relation. We
have heard no theory advanced to account
for this strange case. •
A GAY old seducer named Sherman, with
the hot blood of sixty summers in his veins,
ran away with the wife of John D. Wells,
of Weston, Missouri, some time ago. The
fugitives took with them $B,OOO in Govern
ment bonds, and $1.1,700 in gold. They were
pursued, arrested in Michigan, brought
back, and gave up the bonds, but did net
account for the money. The - case was sub
'thitted to the grand jury, at Platte City, last
Wednesday, and they mimed to find an in
dictment. Sherman was therefore dis
charged, and started to walk to Weston.
Soon afterward his body was found, a quar
ter of a mile from that place, with a heaiy
charge from a shot-gun lodged in the aide
and breast It is suspected that Wells, des
pairing of getting justice legally, deter
mined to avenge his wrongs with his own
hands. •
THE llartfonl Post is responsible for the
story of a conductor on a road not a thous
and miles from Hartford, who had agreed in
the kindness of his heart to pass a poor perm
fleas fellow on his train. An officer of the
road sitting in the same car Kith the man,
observed that the conductor took po fare of
him, and caffed him to accotmefor it "Why
do you pass that man ?" said Mr. Treasure 7.
"Oh, he's a conductor on the railroad."
"Ile's a conductor! why what makes him
dress so shabby?" "Oh, he's trying to live
on his.csilary !" was the quick reply. Mr.
Treasurer saw the point and - dropped the
subject. •
Istattentvrtos to this country is largely on
the increase. From 1859 to 1963 there was
an average of about 00,000 arrivals per an
num; iu 1803 there were 161,6481 iu 180,
184,700; in 1865,, 200,031; in 1866, 2;26,641 ;
and during the past year 245,489 emigrants
landed at Castle Garden, showing thus a.
steady increase in numbers : From January
1 to April 29 of tlie.current year the number
of emigrants landed nt emetic Garden was
37,579, awl at that lime, about seven thous
and persons at Havre and Bremen were,
awaiting transportation.
GEnnoE K. Gnonwts, the backer of Wes
ton, has - offered to stake $40,000 that Weston
ran make twenty different stretches, of 100.
tidies at intervals of a fortnight, the - first in
twenty-three and a half consecutive hours
and the others in gradually diminishing
periods, the most being. twenty , one hours.
The terms lire that $2,000 be won or lost on
each special attempt, thus making $40,000.
He also offers to bet that Weston csn, beat
the best sworn tide of uny long distance pe
destrian on record, and that he can walk fifty
miles In nine hours. '
THE following rather hard story is told by
a Troy paper : "The other' morning a gen
tleman found in a trap he had set a complete
rat skin, and—nothing more ! The snap had
caught the animal by the nose, and in strug
gling to escape he walked entirely out of his
skin. Attached to the skin well; portions of
the bones of the head, the hind feet, and the
whole tail. Leading from the trap to a hole
near by were tracks of blood."
ON Sunday, while three sous of Henry
Foge of Delaware, Ind., aged ten, twelve, and
sixteen years, were•out in a ,Meld together, a
difficulty arose between thew, *hen the
