Kefler, of Montgomery, offered the following as a substitute for section 26 of the Bill of Rights. Sec. 20. That common carriers shall mak no discrimination on account of color between persons traveling in this State on public conveyances. This section threw a firebrand into (lie Convention. It was opposed by Messrs. Saflold, Semple, Morgan and others, an«J was strongly supported by all the negro delegates, including Grif fin, of Mobile. Rapier, Gregory, Car ratvay, and other negro delegates deliv ered iuflaiiiatory harangues, demanding entire social equality with the whites. The speeches and section created a sen. sation. Action on the matter was fi_ nally posponed until Monday morn ing. ami the Convention adjourned to that hour, TIIE IiirEACJDIEVT OF PRESIDENT JOHNSON, 0 THE COMMITTEE AT WORK, ! EXCITEMENT IN WASHINGTON &C. Washington, Nov. 24. The Impeachment Committee was in session at a late hour last night It meets again to-morrow morning, and will make a report during the day.— There will lie three reports. The docu ments are voluminous. Heavy trans actions have been made in gold, which the report is expected to influence, and the most feverish anxiety exists. Ru mors are abundant, but the Committee seems to have haded oil the news limi ters. Among other wild statements it is said the Bulls of New York have raised ami invested one hundred and til'ty thousand dollars in securing one vote in the Committee for impeachment. The probabilities are that there have been no recent changes, and that the Committee stands four for impeach ment. tiiree for a vote of censure, and two for quashing the matter, Later. —The impression that the Committee will stand five for impeach ment gains ground. It is said high of ficial circles have intimations to this effect. Washington, Nov. 25.— Later. — The impeachers expect to make their strong point against the President from circumstances connected with trans ferring rolling stock, to Southern rail roads. Robinson is making a fifty minutes’ speech on a bill to impeach Minister Adams. J>Oon. —The Chair announced the Committees, and half past one the Com mittee on Impeachment were delayed, but there seems no doubt, Churchill has joined the Impeachment party, giving them five votes—a majority, The Committee on Election is still in session, the election of Galladay from Kentucky, who were elected to i succeed Hise. referred to Committee on ■ Elections. Pending the report he was excluded by a vote of*IDS LO'3B, The Commit lee entered the House at half past twelve. During the morning hour half a doz en bills were reported and referred for the repeal of the cotton and other taxes. A bill was introduced regarding »he navigation n< the rivers flowing into the Gull ol Mexico. Congressional. SENATE. Washington, .Nov. 25.—A petition from Massachusetts was presented ask ing for mule and female suffrage. 'Tiie use nr the Senate Chamber was denied to Re - /. Newman Hail. Tne .Military Committee was order ed to inquire into the expediency of reducing the regular army. A resolution, returning thanks to Gens. Sheridan. Sickles, Rope, Scho field, was introduced, but was referred. Edward Dunbar, editor of tlie New 1 York Globe, was ordered before the | Bar of the Seriate lor contempt, j The Senate then adjourned. HOUSE. A resolution was adopted that no ' committee shall incur ail expense here ! alter without further orders of tiie House. Bout well, second member of the Judiciary Committee, rose to report the testimony taken bv the Committee on Impeachment, ami a majority report by Chairman Wilson. anJ a dissenting report, proposed by Williams, ol Penn sylvania. The summary of the major ity report it as follows : Ln accordance with the testimomes herewith submitted, and tbe view ol the law herewith presented, the com mittee is of the opinion that Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, is guilty ol high crime and misdemean or in that, 4’C. It closes with the resolution. Resolved. That Andrew Johnson be impeached for his crimes and misde meanors. The report was followed by mingled expression of applause and disappro bation. The speaker meantime using his gavel —Wilson,Chairman, for him self and Woodbridge presented tbe report which concludes—we therefore declare that the case before us, pre sented by the testimony and measured by the law, does mu disclose such high crime, and misdemeanors within the measuring of the Constitution as re quire the constitutional interposition oi the power of the House, and recom mended the adoption of the following ; Resolved , That the Judiciary Com mittee be discharged from the further consideration of the proposed impeach ment of the President of the United Stales, and that the subject be laid on the table. Marshall, in behalf of himself and Eldridge. stated that they fully con curred in the resolutions offered by Chairman Wilson, and also concurred entirely with his argument regarding the law of the case, a id the application of the evidence thereto, but there were differences oil some points which in duced him and Mr. Eldridge to submit a third report. The reports were all laid on the table and ordered to be printed, and made a special order for Wednesday of next week. A bill to suspend civil officers during the impeachment was referred to the Judiciary Commiltee. A motion was subsequently made by Mr. Blair, of Maine, to reconsider the vote ol referring it, and to table the vote to reconsider, which fastens the bill in the Judiciary Committee and removes it from arbitrary control of the House, which was regarded as a sort ol test on this question. Blair’s motion prevailed with but little opposition, indicating a weakness of scheme to suspend before conviction. The rules were suspended and a resolution was adopted declaring, that in the judgment of the House it was unnecessary to proceed at present with the building and equipping of the war ships. The rules were suspended and a resolution was adopted, declaring that in the present condition of the finances further purchases of territories are in expedient, and that the House holds itself under no obligations to vote money for such pttrshases. A bill declaring St. Louis a port of entry was referred to the Committee on Commerce. The House then adjourned. Grant’s evidence covers three col ums, but the following tells his story : By Mr. Woodbridge—Q. I understand your position to be this, that you did not assume to originate or inaugurate any policy, but that when any question came up, and your opinion was asked as to what the President was going to do, or had done, you gave an opinion ? A. That is it exactly, and I presumed the whole Committee so understood me, I have always been attentive to my own duties and tried not not to inter fere with other people’s ; l was always ready to originate matters pertaining to the army, but 1 never w’as willing to originate matters pertaining to the civil affairs of P’e United States ; when ask ed my opinion about what had been done, I was willing to give it. I orig inated none, nor suggested no plan for the civil government, I only gave my view’s on measures after they had been originated. 1 simplv expressed an anxiety that something should be done to give some sort of control down there. There was no governments there when the war was over; I wanted to see some government established, and to see it done quickly. I did not pretend to say’ how it should be dene, or in what form. The majority of the Impeachment in their report, recommend-, ing the impeachment lav great stress upon the alleged usurpation bv the President of the pardoning and veto powers, also the authority to make removals and appointments, and par ticularly refer to what is termed fla grant violations of the constitutional powers of the Executive, by organizing governments in the Southern Stales, at the end of the war without asking advice of Congress, as they assert for personal purposes. They refer to tha pardoning oTa hundred and ninety three persons in West Virginia, desert ers from the army during the war, which they state was in behalf of pri vate and interested parties, and in order thai tlmy may vote in accordance with the President's opinions, their restoration causing great depletion of treasury. The tenor ol the Executive offenses throughout the entire reports, consists in alleged usurpations of the powers above mentioned. The major ity assert also that by various officials and public declarations, the President has sough.t to obstruct laws of Chngress for pacification of the Staves, with pa. licular reference to the constitution al amendments approved bv Congress. This report is verv lengthy, and signed by Boutwell, Williams, Churchill, Thomas. Lawrence. A leport was also submitted by W ilson and Woodbridge, dissenting from views ol majority, and iasseiting that there was no evidence presented, which demanded impeach ment, but they condemned his political views and were willing to censure. The minority report by Messrs. Mar shall and Eldridge, who strongly defend the President from abuse by iiis politi cal enemies, and assert that his only faults consists in not holding to the political views of the party which elected lii.m, in subjugating the people ol the South. The report is extremely caustic and abuses harshly, some of tiie witnesses who testified before the Committee. Baker is aecused of per jury, and they conclude with the President will be held in respect by Ins countrymen, when his ealuninators are pillored in undying scorn and indignation of the American people. The points inado in the summing up °f the majority report against the Presi dent, are not borne out by the testimo ny. First, As to the President having usurped the powers of Congress, in or ganizing governments in the Southern States, it wifi be found in Gen. Grant’s testimony that the programme which was followed out by Mr. Johnson, had been laid down by Mr. Lincoln. It also appears in Gen. Grant’s testimony that be was present, by invitation, at the Cabinet Councils in which the re organization of the Southern States was considered. That while he assen ted to the plan followed bv the adminis tration, he did not oiler any suggestions .*f his own, but was a silent listener.— The only active part he took was to retain the President’s ardor to have prominent rebels, like Lee, brought to condign punishment. As to the par don of prominent rebels, it appears that many of the most prominent of them were pardoned on the recommendation of Gen. Grant, Speed, Stanton, &e, — As to the pardon of some hundred de serters from West Virginia Regiments, which the report alleges was done in order that they might v He lor a Demo cratic member <ff Congress, it appears irom evidence that they were only tech nically deserters, that they were not pardoned until some weeks after the election, and that the President merely considered the application in the usual form, referring it to the Secretary of War, who, himself, granted it. The Committee enquired into the posses sion by the President of certain Ten nessee bonds, on the supposition that his possession of them might have some connect ion with the release of the prop erty of Southern Railroad Companies, but it appeared that Mr. Johnson had been in possession of those bonds for the last twelve years. In reference to the trial of Jefferson Davis, Attorney General Speed and the counsel for the government must shoulder all the re sponsibility of not trying him, the avowed cause being that Chief Justice Chase would not preside, and that At torney General Speed would not con sent, under any consideration, to have the trial conducted before Judge Un derwood. Then; was an attempt on the part of Lafayette C. Baker, to get up a story about an imaginary letter from Mr. Johnson, as Military Governor of Tennessee, to Jefierson Davis, offering to turn the State over to him, but the Committee could have had no trouble in deciding what degree of credit was to be given to it. The tale lell still born, there is no allegation against the President ol his having personally given grounds of offense. Ashley, of Ohio, who presented the articles of im peachment, acknowledges that lie has produc/d to tlre.Committee all the valid evidence in fiis possession. The order of extentiou of absence of Mr. Dtvis. and fixing the 22d of March for the trial, waseuterd by order of the Judge, and Mr. Davis’ trial ended for this term. Mr. Davis’ did not appear ill court. Aeixandcr 11. Stevens to Ad dress Hie People ofi\. Y. Several leading gentlemen of both political parties among whom we are infoimed, are Messrs Brown Brothers and Peter Cooper, have recently ad dressed a letter to Alexander 11. Ste vens, of Georgia, requesting his appear ance in New York during the first week in December, to address our cit izens oil the actual condition of affairs in the South, social and political. Mr. Stevens, it is said, has accepted the invitation and may be expected here in a few days, when the gentleman having [ charge of the preliminary arrangements will publicly announce the day upon which the Vice President of the late Confederacy will deliver his address. Among the leading men connected with the ex-Confederate Government, lie is. perhaps the only one who has retained a certain kind of affectionate esteem from ill parties in the North, and there are very few speakers of the day who can, trummand more eager and attentive audiences.— N. Y. World. At Last. —Says the Macon Journal 4’ Messenger of yesterday’s date, “we have reliable information that Govenor Jenkins has been ordered by General Pope to hold himself in readiness to march at a moment’s notice. And the on dit from the same source is, that a shining light, from Thomas county, who gained some little notoriety a short time since by denouncing Ben. Hill as a “finished demagogue,” is to be his sue s cessor.” AUCTION AND COMMISSION!
