TIIE quibbles against 'impeachment
are many and ridiculous. One is that
Johnson is not constitUtionally President,
but ofily-Tice-President, acting ,Presi

composed -of Representatives from , the
several States. When. men are 'com

THE only'argunient that the President
presents in his message. worth notice, is
_while Abe' laws forbid him to re
move, without the consent of the Senate,
Cabinet officers whom he appointed, they
are silent in regard to Cabinet officers
whom he did not appoint,---He-claims
that as)4lr. Stanton was appointed by
Mr. Lincoln, ge could remove him with
out asking the Senate. This is merely
a quibble. Mr. Johnson for two yeaia

The Tenurp-of-Offi - ep Law
It is very customary among the Dem
ocratio friends and allies of President'
Johnson to quote Daniel Webster as the
great , •expo_under and defender of the
principles of the Constitution. The
following, froPn an argument of 111 r.
Weliter's, in our opinhin, clearly demon
strates the constitutionality of the act of
Congress, which Andrew Johnson so
lately and so defiantly violated:
"•I think, then, sir, that4he
pointment naturally and necessarilyincludes
the power of removal where no limitation is
expressed, no - r- any tenure but that at will
deelare . d. The power of appointment being
conferred on the President and Senate, I
think the power of removal wentnlong With
it, and should have been agarde'd as a part
of it, and exercised by the same hands.
"I think the Legislotare..riosioss.tiie power
to regulate the condition, duration, quell*.
cation and tenure of office k.all - cases where
the Constitution has made no express
vision on-the subject. I am, therefore, of
opinion that it is competent Mr Congress to
declare by law as, ono qUalificatfon of the_
tenure-of-office, that the incumbent shall
rennin in place till the President shall re
-move him, tor reasons to - be - stntell - to tire
Senate. And lam of opinion -that-this qual
ification; mild and gentle as it is, will have
some affect in arresting the evils which be
set the prOaress of.the Government, and se
riously threaten its future prosperity.'!
'lt will be observed that Mr. Webster
contended that the power . Of appointment
beinr• conferred on the President
Senate thatrtheToNver of - removal should
be exereAse4.4y the sane hands.. If
DanielVebstlef good authority to be
cited .by the Democracy, at ene -time
surely he is at a 'Other. •,•

VOICE OF THE PRESS
With the exception or red-„
hot Democrrtic journals, of the Brack-
Pomeroy pattern, the press accept to im—
peachment without excitement, and 'discuss
it with commendable calmness. Most of
the Democratic papers strive to make it
appear as a 'partisan act, and- argue, or
rather charge, that it is it Republican flank
movement in antigjpatien of the grand con
test in November. Here and there, a Cop
perhead like The Hartford Times, frantically
screams, in alarmingly largo type, "We
are in astute Of revolution!" But no ono
appears to be frightened, and even the
writers of-such paragraphs pursue their
usual routine of lifein-blissful-ignoranetj of,
the dreadful crisis that Intslieen precipitated
'upon us. Of course this cry is a little bit
of buncombe intended
„to affect the New
'Hampshire election. Nine,deriths of all
tho newspapers that Kaye spoken upon the
matter fail to discovdr any serious cause for
anxiety; thd Republican journals,nre, almost
without exception, • glad that affairs have
come to the point where a settlement must
follow, and the Democrats, 'while begging
the question by charging- partisan-feeling
as the auto cause of bringing it on, are ap
parently no less willing than the other side
to haVe - a final adjudication<--
-As--for the• threatened panic': it does not"
exist. Hero and there we find a wild-look--

should bring upon the perpretators the li‘ght
ning of heaven. • Bat these superstitious edi
tors are few.and far between. • The general
sentiment of the 'press is - that a necessary
net' has been fond, and:that whatever the
result of the trial may be, there is not now
or is it probable - there will any excitodient
beyond, the extraordinary .interes6that the

Tho large amount of farming operations,
which are carried on under. the relation ,of
landlord and tenant, renders the- sucject an
interesting one. " The terms of the lease, its
duration, and thO duties which• the .land
lord owes to the tenant,: s and tlie tenant
the' landlord, descry . ° consideration. It not
'lease; buCthis is always wrong. Experience
teaches that the greater the confidence, .and
the neafettlfe relationship, Which exist
between the parties, the greater the no
eessity for providing against any misunder
,standing of What their agreement is. Usually
the term is for a single year, that the par;
ties,may try each other; the tenati render=
ing one-half of all grain in the Ihshol at
some neighbouring mill or ware-house, and
paying all school and road taxes, and the
landlord paying the State and county taxes.
All else may be called'detail ; but this de
be7the ' , general" features of the - contract.

.be reasonable, 'mid in
accordance with the asdation which : tho
parties boar to - each Other, - that ono should'
furnish.the capital and, the other the la

than is trAe Upon the farm is - required, it
should bo paid for by 'the landlord; and
hauled and spread by the tenant. All hay

reshed in the field 'by ri 'lpaving, and
therefor°, cross tOnant;_it is far worso. .If
more hay is made upon' tho farm -than _can
be consumed upon it, then it should be sold
for the joint benefit of the . landlord and
tenant. If clover or timothy aced is made,
it should be for the joint benefit of the pa-
tces,but-on-our-lands,..we—very Much doubt,'
whether there ever should-bc more made
than the farm requires for its own use. it
is'a most exha9Sting crop when taken froth
the lands, and'tho reason of this is, the
character of the seed mid°, requires all
the powers of the land to produce it. Cio
verseed is only--occasionally produced, and
if the farmer would make his calmilation
to make the product of a bountiful_rh
servo to supply the demands of : a successive
.year, or two, he, wouldlirothote. thq produc
tions of his arm. But if there slier
a surplus of seecl, it should he divided be
tween the landlord and ,the tenant. Tho
question of pastilrage is one that very much
concerns the parties, and we set It down` as
an axiom in farming, that no tenant should
b 9, allowed tmturn his battle into the fields
until after hay harvest. If he pastures niS
cattle in the early part of the seasonten or
twenty aeres, as tho sizb of the field may be,

Of the same field will supply the sammdemand
If it be cut and carried to thO , barn yard ;.
and not only that,•but all the damage ivhich
results from tramping the soil during the
-wet-spring- will ; e- prevented. -We have
' already' discussed this subject, and we now .
- that there - is no Moro important
feature - in a-lease thuti that whibli -Tirciiiides
thalnmeattle shall be turned out of - the
barn yard before harvest.. It. promotes the
interest of the tenant as well as. the lanai
lord. It costs fess labor and trouble to cut
-- grass - for cattle, than it does to encounter
the voxatiOn and time to drive them back
and forward from the field, mend 'broken
fences and bars, hunt up straying cattle,
and.settling damages with your neigliers.
There is more system, too, in feeding cattle
at home, than abroad : there is More
nuremade;,and you have the satisfaction
Of having your cattle tinder your eye. The
tenant must have ground for his garden,
and for potatoes, and whether the.. landlord
shall partake of a share of potatoes, is a
.question fairly to be considered, and the
result of it should he-determined by the
charabter of the farm. Our impression is
that.the landlord should find one half of
-the seed - and Ili; entitled to one half of Vie
crop, under ordinary-circumstances, other
wise difficulties may arise as to the quantity
of groubd to be planted, and the earns i.ulo
should- proN:ail as to turnips. .• '
There are a thousand, other • queStions,
which grow old , of improvements
madebythe landlord during the year, and
special things which linrcqutres to he done,
ali4of which' should be specially' provided
for. It should never beforgotten, howeVer;
that as between . landlord and , temlut there
IS a perfect ecputlity l ; the one furnishes the
capital aod the other- the lab - or, and both
have the same: object in view, to produce ,
the . most Profitable result,_ nod:that result
can only he permanently prolltable„
'it is equally So to both. parties. The land;
lord who has an advantage of his tenant
in his contract witkhim, can not hare_it
!Ong, and he must pay for it in the end :
either from diminished products,or unfaith
ful accountability, for which there is no
adeqaate 7ecindy: for resort to a law salt,
is but adding eipense and vexation to the
loss. There_are_many reasons-why a land
lord Should not change his tenant, except
from necessity. Good farming requires the
.pursuit!of a system which must run over a
series of years ; which, independent of the
expense to l both parties which is occasioned
by moving, ,is greatly interrupted by , a
chengo of tenants., Besides, there is in the
existence of a long lease a
. motive -in the
care which a tenant will have in the' man
agement:of one yearovith the view 'of the
products of an other. A generous and non ,
did communication and consultation should
-always-characterise-the intercourse between
landlord and tenant; facts and opinions with
,to -the Management_ of ,the farm

aionant should keep is a.question• of - the
first importance, and' ono which greatly
atrects the interests of the parties:' The le;
catibnof the farm, its proximity to tt mar
ing is sold, whether it be upland or metdow,
are eonsidera - tions which muit
the agreement , of, the-, parties. But the
principle,whicontrois 'the subject is; that
these products, so L prolltable to the farmer,
aro grievously expensive to the Sarin. - LS
richest prodOctionstre carried to - the market,
and nothing tb . componsate is brought back
to the soil; It is - not quite ,reationable that •
'the - entire profit should result to t4O tenant
and yet it is fairly to be considered,, that
the tenant - ovine the Stock, - the farm fur
nishes the food, Its exhaustion tojis upon the
landlordhi profits. The amount of labor in
the production of marlreting extends rather
beyond' the, industry of the' tenant himself,
and into; his family;. to an qxtent 'not. con-
templated In the ordinary relation 'of land
