Btxcial DUval:h to 77u CAtcoo* THbtmt, Washington, D. C. f April 27.—Aa tbo impeach ment farce progressed this afternoon, the crowded and fashionable andlonco was treated to two sparkling displays of legal comedy. ndgo Blair was rather heavy in his remarks, hut Judge Black, who followed him, brought down tho house several times by hia humorous invec tive and boon sarcasm, quite wonderful for a man nearly 70 years old. Then C&rpoutor came on the stage like a dashing dragoon, and not only assailed tho Confederate House with tho rudest violence of denunciation for its action In persecuting bis client, who bad fought so gal lantly for tbo Union, tmt ho pitched Into the investigating committees and tho Managers with a rare disdain for their honeyed words. His de scription of tho scone on the adoption of tho resolution .for impeachment, when, to use bis expressive words, the House “wont off like a bottle of champagne," was capital. Blackburn and llicster Clytner, who sat together on a sofa, didn’t enjoy it a hit, and the Houbo managers, who had declined to orate, looked as mad as March haras. . Both Black and Carpenter wore especially se vere on Attorney-General f iorrepont for placing detectives on guard over Belknap without the least evidence that bo thought of escaping'. Taken altogether, thoae speeches wore the moet brilliant, scorching displays of pyrotechnic oratory ever heard or witnessed in the Senate Chamber, but tbe Senators sitting aa a High Court wore not con vinced that the trial should bo postponed until Christ mas. Now will oometbs arguments on jurisdiction, with Interval* of two days between for preparation, and moaowUUe (he legislative business of the session is do* Isyed. Qen, Bazoo, who is Oen. Belknap’s bitter enemy, was present during the trial, with ex-Benator Fewlor and Judge I’olaud. Notwithstanding the brilliant arguments on tha mo. tlon to postpone the Impeachment proceedings until next December, the vote of the Senate in secret ses sion was unanimous that the motion should bo denied. Although the managers In their answer deny that Mr. Clyxner bad any understanding with Oen. Belknap about resigning, air. Clymer himself informs bis friends that be did say to Judge Blair, Belknap's counsel, that if the Secretary did not resign by 13 o’clock be would Impeach him. The proposition of the managers to-day, after tbs Senate bad decided to go on with the case, was, in effect,to go on with the hearing, take all the testimony and (her decide both the questions of jurisdiction and guilt at the elose. lib IXs Atiocialal lvm.l MOTION FOB POSTPONEMENT. Washington, D. 0.. April 37.—The Senate galleries were again crowded to-day, two-thirda of the audience being ladles. At 13:30 the legislative business was suspended, and the Impeachment trial began. Mr. Lord submitted a motion that the evidence ro uting to tha question of Jurisdiction of the Senate bo given before the argument relating thereto, and If such plea la overruled, that the defendant be required to answer the articles of Impeachment within two days, and tha Honae'e reply, If they deem It necessary, with in two days, and that the trial proceed the next day after tbo Joining of the issue. Mr. Oarpenter, of the counsel for the accused, moved that the trial ba postponed till the first Monday of December next, and asked that the tune for dis cussing this motion tw fixed at two hours for each aide. The request was granted, 48 to 13, and Mr. Blair addressed the Senate in favor of the motion. JUCdE ULAOS spoke an hour,and dwell atsomo length upon tha politi cal excitement against the accused, contending it was so Intense that each party was committed to his ruin. It waa impossible for film to have a fair trial, though he might nave an honest one. lie also intimated that bla deieoae would bo so painful that nothing but fear of absolute loss of hla reputation could move him to it. At the conclusion of Jndgo Black's speech Mr. Ed munds moved that the Senate withdraw for consulta tion. The motion was agreed to—yeas, 35 ; nays, 31* QUESTION or PARLIAMENTARY LAW. Before tho Senate retired, Ur. Hoar, one of the Man agers, called Ita attention to the rule of parliamentary law which restricts the Senate In tha discussion of what baa taken place In the House of Representatives. He desired to know whether that was a rule governing the proceedings on the trial, so that the Managers of the Ilonas might govern themselves accordingly. lie was lad to allude to the subject from ihe fact that ooe of the learned counsel bad boeu permitted to aisle that a scone of disorder took place In the House on a certain occasion. He did not make any motion on the subject, but merely desired to call the attention of the Senate to It in order that the Managers might under stand Vhat their rights and duties were to tho prom isee. Ur. Carpenter and that, on tbo part of the defend ant, counsel wished to bo beard before tbat Important question vu decided. uErcNoairr’s motion denied. The Senate then at a o'clock retired for consultation, and returned to the Senate Chamber at half-put 4, when the presiding officer announced tbat the motion on the pari of tha defendant via denied, and tbat counsel on tha part of the reapondent would now be heard on a motion mbmltled by tha managers, which le that the erldence oo the question pending to the pica of Jurisdiction bo given before arguments relate lug thereto are beard, and that if such plea is over ruled, defendant should bo required to answer the articles of Impeachment In two days, and tbat trial shall proceed on the nest day after joining Issue. Ur. lilalr, counsel for Delknsp, rose to open tbs argument, bnt. on motion of Mr. Anthony,the Senate, sitting as a Court of Impeachment, adjourned until to-morrow at half-past Hi. CLAPP. bis nrvmioATioii. Opteiai Ditpaieh to The Chicago frltans. WaeniHOTOX, 1). 0., April 27.—A. M. Clapp, Qovernment Printer, bat formally demurred to tbo Juriadlctlon of tbo House Committoo on Printing over bis office for tbo purpose of in~ vodtigatiou. On tbe Slat of April be addressed a letter to tbe Chairman of tba Committee, Mr. Vance, of Ohio, of which tbe following id a copy: Aa I have been assured by your Committee tbat I may have the privilege of reviewing tha testimony taken in the printing Investigation, and of Introduc ing rebutting testimony, and as I am not versed In tho laws and rules of evidence, I desire (ho privilege of being attended by counsel. Will you please answer If (hat privilege will be granted. (Signed) A. U. Otarr, In topi; to this letter, tbe dork of tbe Com mittee ou Printing addressed the following to Clapp on the 2Ub of April: 1 am directed by tbs Committee on Printing to la- CHICAGO, FRIDAY, APRIL 28, 1870. form you that they ire reedy to beer the teettmoay of •uch additional witnesses m yon mey desire to pro duce. lain farther Instructed to «ty that the Com mittee bare it yoor request ilready examined i nntn her of witnesses from the Government office, but, do •iroui that do mein* he left unturned to arrive it the truth regarding the coat of puhllo print ing, ahall be pleased to near the statements of other*- It is necessary tbit tin investigation bo brought to a dose, and you will therefore bring for ward your witnesses during the latter part of the prev ent week. You are farther Informed that you an ex amine tho testimony at any time after Thursday roam ing at 10 o'clock In tbo Committee-room, and tho Com mittee dee Ire ms to add that you are at liberty to bring before them any reputable member of tbo legal pro fession as counsel. TUB CONDITION that Clapp’s counsel should bo a “reputable” member of tho legal profession was pur posely inserted, members of the Com mittee say. because during an inves tigation of the Government printing office by tho Douse Committee of last Congress Clapp introduced the notorious Dick Harrington as his representative, and the Committee wore unwilling to havo anything to do with men of his character. CLAPP’S LAST. Tho following letter was received by Chair man Vanco, of tbo Committee, to-day : » Orncs or tub Conobessional Print**, Washino tow, D, 0., April i7, lßCo.—lb fAe linn. J. L. Vanet. CAuirman of Committee on I'rtnlinn— Deab Sin: 1 desire to acknowledge the receipt of the note of your Clerk,under dato of tbe 'JUh Inst, On consultation with counsel t am advised thaMnaamurb as I am an officer of the Senate of tho United Slates, your Committee has no Jurisdiction to in vestigate my conduct In office as Congressional Primer, and that your Committee will nut pretend to do so, Bo far as your inquiries under the resolution of the House of Representatives are concerned, 1 have no special interest, and, therefore, I have concluded that 1 havo no doty to perform except to give you any Information in my power in regard to tho subject un der investigation by your Committee, which I havo already done. (Signed) A. M. Clapp, The law to which Clapp refers Is See. 1,768 of tboltovlsod Htatutos, which provides that the Sen ate shall elect a person who must bo a practical printer, and versed in the art of hook-binding, to take charge of and manage the Government Printing-Office. Ho shall bo deemed an officer of the Senate, and shall bo called the Congres sional Printer. Clapp's friends are greatly sur- Briaod at tho demurrer to tho jurisdiction of the [ouss Committee, as during the whole investi gation they have behoved that all tho alleged irregularities and apparent extravagance in the printing-office could bo satisfalorily explained. The course now adopted by the Congressional Printer seems to them to he an abandonment altogether of any attempt at defense. HERE AND THERE. rnENDBit. Special Ditvnteh to Th* Chicago Ttibunf, Washington, D. C., April 27.—The Commit tee investigating the Treasury Department frauds continued tho examination of Frooder, of St. Louis, who made the ridiculous state ment that, while a clerk in the Treasury, he know that largo sums of money were stolon, ood that thoDepartmont statement was fictitious. Tho Committee has no technical knowledge on the subject matter of the inquiry, but from tho Investigation thus far tboy soopi to have very little confidence io Pronder'o statements. DBIBTOW AM) CAULFIELD. Caulfield baa written a letter to the Secretary of tho Treasury trying to placo him lu the atti tude of refusing to produce tho records. Tbo Secretary has replied that every japer in tho depart ment la open to tho Inspection of the Committee, and a room will be placed at Ita disposal, and all the clerks and officers having most knowledge of the documents would be present at any time to assist in a thorough examination of auy subject. The order against tend ing original records to the Capitol is the order of tbo President, and strictly In accordance with law. Cer tified copies of auy document wanted will be sent on demand. PBOiirrLT ANSWBBBD. Senator Sargent's resolution asking the Treasury whether Special Agents were not employed without re gard to law; whether they have not received special rewards, and bow much has been paid (hem, received a prompt answer.

DAVENPORT. MORE or TUB SAME BOUT. Sneridl viepatehto The ChUcgo Tribune, WAfIuiKQTOJf. D. C.. April 27.—Davenport's examination was continued. Caulfield waa too alok to bo present to hoar Davenport's story, bat ho was well enough to bo about tbo House. Frequent attempts were msdo to prevent Daven port from tolling the story in his own way, os he has been ashed to do, but ho was courageous enough to persist, and did givo tho Committee a very interesting chapter on Tammany frauds. On the direct subject of the luiiulry be showed that ho bad Touchers for every coot of his expenditures. (ft Iht Altveiiilfd I'trit, V WAfliiiKt»TO*, D. 0., April 37.--john I. Davenport resumed his testimony this morning before the Com mittee on Kxpendlturcs in the Department of Justice, Mr. Candler presiding and propounding questions In the absence of Oaulflold, who 1(111.

Tho money was to pay for work actually done, and not for Information. Whatever was paid fur Information was paid out of witness, pocket. Witness saw tbo President at Long Branch, and exhib ited his books and papers to show the class of work he was doing. Ths money was therefore given him. Iloccss. Davenport said that be noror carried a written order from the President to Attorney-General Williams far mouoy, Ur. Williams had stated that lo be tbo cose, but he was mistaken. Tho only obJecUoa Mr. Will iams ever made to paying that money was the fund to bo used in the Booth. If Ur. Williams stated other wise on this point, he was mistaken in that also. At torney-General Williams wrote to Whitley to pay wit ness the money, and then Whitley's connection with It ceased. All vouchers for expenses between July 111 and BvpL 30, 1673, are in tbs Treasury Department, except perhaps a fow bills. Adjourned. BLACK SHEEP OP TUB DEMOCRATIC PBIWUASTOS. Special IHevateh to The Chicago tribune. Washington. D. 0.. April 27.— Geo. Boufjh ton, clerk of the House Military Committee, to day resigned bis position. The resignation in considered by the Bopublicau members of Ibe Committee as a practical confession that moat of tbe charges against bia coaid be proved. Tbe Committee itaolf adopted a resolution by which it decided to pursue the investigation no farther on account of tbe exi>enae of bringing witnesses from Tex**. Tbe Committee, however, could not retain wclork in view of the partially proved chargee, hence hi* rmlgniiloo. WHY IS Tins TUL'H ? In.lb* Confederate archives then) baa Just been discovered a letter from the present Chief Clerk of one of the Comptroller** officer* in the Treasury, to a person connected with the Confederate State Govern meat, recommending the bearer of that letter to office In the Confederacy, The result of that letter was. that tbe person who presented it waa appointed. Tue writer of the letter has been for a greoiraany year* a prominent officer In the Treasury Department,of known Democratic affiliations. Hi* loyalty ww more than once doubted during the War. Ilia association* alnre have been with many of the pronounced opponent* of llepublicaulam and lb* Union. He baa town aui|>ected by associate officer* la the Treasury of having fur nished secret Information to Democratic investigating committees in violation of Department regulations, and it Is noticeable that while tbe salaries of all of ficer* of corresponding rank have been reduced from 10 to 10 per cout, hi* salary baa been reduced by tbs Democrats butjlix). CHICAGO BANKING MATTERS. TUB COOK COD NTT NATIONAL. Special DitpaUh to 7'A* Tnbun*, Washington, D. 0., April 27.—Corydoo Beck with, n. 8. Monroe, Ur. Bpoucer, ' and A. □. Burley have arrived hero to confer with the Comptroller of tbe Currency about certain old matters of tho Cook County National Bank. In tho sale by Bponcer to Allen of the Cook County National Bauk in May, 1873, bponcer guaranteed the collection of 265-500 of tbe paper then in tbe back, and agreed to pay that proportion of any losses that might be sustained Ut the oolleo- Hon of tbo paper. Afterwards Bpoocor and Alloa tnado a settlement of that guarantee, which was published in Tint Tninomt in Januray, 1873. A question having arisen relative to the validity of the settlement, Mr. Hurley, Receiver of the Cook County Nsllonsl, agree* to sub mit it to Comptroller Knox. 11. H. Monroe, s* attor ney for the Receiver, snd Beckwith- a* attorney for Spencer, have come here with all the papers relating to the matter. They have respectively submitted tbeir pa|«rs each to the other, and will submit them to tbo Comptroller for his decision. The questional issuo la this: Certain specified paper was guaranteed in the manner above mentioned, Allen gave a portion of that patter, and look other paper and security with* oat the knowledge and consent of Spencer. Spencer claims that, as Allen gave up the paper or renewed it, and they aotlied afterwards, he Is discharged from liability, ' tur ciiioaoo cm national Senator Logan, Farwcll, Ciulfleld, and Carter Bar riaon havo been In receipt of a great number of tele grams during the dty. recommending various persona to act as Receiver of tha City National Bank. Among tho name* recommended in (he«o telegrams are Bogue. Parker, Oils, Caulfield, and William 11. Rico. It iahyno means certain that tho Comptroller will ap point anybody Receiver at,present. He ha* no power to do so. There is a very general misconception of the law relative to the i«owcr of the Comptroller to appoint Receivers, except In case of voluntary liquidation. In the present condition of the City National Bank, Comptroller Knox can only appoint a Receiver when he ha* received a protested note, snd it is in the power of the hank to prevent a protested note by paying it when presented. This seems to ho tho official construction of tho law. The law now pending In tho Henale. which has passed the House, and which was recommended by (he Comp troller of the Currency, given to the latter greater powers, and enables him at any time to place a Receiver in charge of a bank whenever it may seem to be in an insolvent condition. A DEMOCRATIC OFFICIAL. ma antecedents. WathimjUm Corruvondmc* Cincinnati Enquirer ( Utmoaatie ). If the Democratic Hooso had appointed a Coramiltoo to make the worst possible bdoctiona for its various officers, more unfortunate selec tions could not have been made io several In stances. Among these is that gallant Confed erate soldier. L. 11. Fitzbngb, who never smelled gunpowder during the War. By some hocus pocus ho was elected Doorkeeper of the House, and he has managed to surround himself with a fine lot of ward hummers and har-flioa. Fitz bugh looks like an angel, hut ho hoa a devil's record. For several weeks a combination composed of correspondents of loading papers in the East and West have had a man employed io hunting up Fitzhngb’s antecedents. This man has been very successful. Ho has found documentary evidence that would convict Henry Ward Dccchor of being a bad man. 1. There is a cony of an Indictment from the rec ords of the Lincoln Comity (Kentucky) Court of 1971, charging Mr. Fitzbugh with ars’iu. lie was charged with (docking the Crab Orchard Hotel with furniture. Insuring It at twice lla value, and then having the swoperty5 woperty burned down. It ta but Justice to say that a ury of Hluo-Oraaa gentlemen found lam not guilty on this charge. 9. There is a copy of an Indictment from tho records of the Lincoln County (Kentucky) Court charging Mr. ritzhugh and two brothers and a few negroes with grand larceny In stealing two bed-qullU tod other things, which was an oftense against the "peace and dignity of the Commonwealth.” 3. There is a copy of an indictment from the records of tho District Court of Lincoln County, Kentucky, charging Mr. Fitzbugh with i>erjury. 4. There is a dq>oeitioa f rom an Internal Itovenne ofllccr of Texas, charging Mr. Fitzbugh and wife with attempting to levy black-mail and prevent a United Stales officer from discharging his duty. 5. There is evidence showing that Mr. Fitzhugb'a son waa killed r.t Donitou, Tex., by a mau whom Sir. Fltzffugb woe attempting to "host.” The murderer waa never brought to trial, but waa discharged on the ground of JutUQaOlo homicide. 6. There are letters in Mr. Fitzbngh's bandwrite that prove him to be a mao of unsound mind aa wtll as bad morals. It strikes mo (bat the sooner tho Democratic House gets rkl of Mr. L. 11. Fitzbugh the bolter it will be for themselves and the party, and the sooner will they nip in the bud a large amount of incipient rascality that has begun to crop out among the men under Mr. Fitzhugb'a employ. I write what I write with regret, but I have come to tho conclusion that if the Demo crat!# House expect to do a thorough luutnwa lathe reform line they had -better lick their own platter find. Purify those that be of the household of faith, and then preach purity to the Gentiles. IN THE HOUSE. TQX LEGISLATIVE APHIOI'UIATIOy SILL. Sufetal Uuvateh U* The Vhvaao Tribune, Washington, D. 0., April 27.—Tho House, owing to tbe pendency of tbo impeachment pro ceedings, accomplished very little.

The Democrats themselves saw that their redaction of force In tbo Fost-Ofilcn De partment woaid cripple tho service, audiocreasod It to eome extent.

ANNUOYALL should have her portrait In tho reporters’ gallery of the Senate as the original female interviewer and write* for the press at this metropolis. She was the widow of a Tcnnescto army officer, and. coming here to get a pension, took up personal literature for a livelihood. At first she published an annual volume called The il.’a:k llnok,— thou she got an old Ramagc press and a battered font of long primer type, and, with the aid of tramping Jour neymen or runaway apprentices, published for sev eral years a weekly paj«cr called 7Vi/ Uuntrtm, She was a small, scraggy woman, with keen black eyes and a tormldalilo nose, and her costume would havo graced a field of growing corn as a scarecrow.

She bad an aseistant handmaiden framed Sally Block, tho counterpart of her employer In all except the length and activity of that unruly member, the tongue. Ouce. when Mrs. llojall bad become un usually abusive, she was Indicted by tho Grand Jury, and tried an “a common scold,” —cmnmtmurtratru, —an offense under the old Colonial code of Maryland, still in torcy lu this District. The District Attorney labored hard to have her sentenced, after “ouvlctloti, to be ducked In a pond, but the Court Imposed a fine of $lO, and to gtvo security for her good keltavlor for one year. Her counsel moved to arrest the Judgment, on the ground that tbo law for the punishment of common scolds was obsolete In England and never was In force in (his country. Rut Chief-Justice Crancb decided that ** tbo offense Is not obsolete, and cauuot become obsolete so long as a common scold Is a common nuisance.” Mrs. Royal! died in October, IW4, at the advanced sgs of DU years.

The result is that one-half of lha employes thus selected are no* toriouely unfit lor the positions which they draw the par of.
