TOUCHING THE POCKKT NKKVK. The impeachment agitation has, it seems i frcm leading journals in the North and West, I already had a depleting effect, unsettled the , finances, and cost the country millions of , dollars.

Tbe New York Tribune is | foremost ib iu opposition to impeachment, ! and indirectly charges the Iltrald with a design to break up tbe Republican party by iU advocacy ol tbe measure. Such a result would be almost inevitable, and otber leading journals Joiesee disaster to tbe country, and ruin to tbe Republican party, if the agitation is continued, j The CLicago Tribune, tbe great radical tbnn- 1 derer ot tbe Northwest, is out in au elaborate 1 and forcible article against tbe impeachment of | tbe President; and tbe Albany Journal goes so Sum aa io say.
