Mr Fanl?bory objecting It went over Mr Chandler asked to take up the resolution Ititrodnced by him on Saturday calling on tbe Jodicittry Committee as to whether the President had any authority to appoint Pr ^visional Governors. Mr. Chandler supported his resolntlon in a speech of some length, in which he declared that ibe appointment of tbe?e Governors wit in palpaole violation ot tbe law, and a usurpation of tbe autboriiy of Congress, for which he deserved impeachment. It was alleged that the President had delivered over to the rebel railroads In the South rolling stock which belonged to the Government, and for this lie deserved impeachment. He had suspended, as ' was alleged, without authority of law, th?* collection ot the direct tax in therebellious Slatst*, and tor this alone he deserved impeachment and removal. He bad made appointments not only without tbe consent ot the Senate, but alter they had keen rejected by the Senate, and lor this he should be impeached. If not. the Congress of the United States might a* well never meet again. In regard to the fears Which bad been expressed as to the disastrous effect ou the country in case of impeachm-nt. It would not prodnce any more derangement than the removal of aNew York custotn-hon?e official. This Republic would live and neither the fall ol .lefTereon Davis or of Andrew Johnson would have any effect on it. Mr. Dixon said he should move an amend, tnent to tbe resolntlon as to whether Preside t Lincoln bad authority to appoint provisional governors.

SITRRATT. No information bas yet beea received at tbe Navy Department from tbe steamer Swatara with Surratt, the conspirator, on board. It : will he remembered that tbe Swadra tailed for home on tbe 8ib of January, and it wa* then thought she would reach here by the 1st of February, if she sbonld make tbe trip under steam. No doubt the canse of her nonarrival is that it was necessary for her to come a great portion of tbe distance under sail. Be. ing a third rate steamer, she can carry but a small quantity of roal, and her commander not wishing to stop at anv ports. It is v*ry probable that bensessvil wbeaerer the weath. ! er permits. It may baa week or two yet before her arrival. As before stated, she will j come immediately to tbe Washington navy yard, should tbe river permit, and the prisoner will be handed over to Marshallioodiag for saje keeping unul tbe trial. It is not improbable that tbe Swatara may be used for the prisou-sbip should the jail not be deemed s&Jflcieutly secure. THE FRENCH LEAVING MEXICO. Commodore John A.
