Herr Simson has been chosen president of the North German Parliament. The King of Prussia gave a banquet to the members of Pari.amen t. Veto of the Tenure ef Office Bill. The President, m his message stating his objection to the tenure of office bill, quotes the first section of the samo as qualified by the fourth, and says ?ln effect the bill provider that the President shall not remove irom their places any ol the Civil officers whose term ot office has not expired by law, without the advice and consent of the Senate of the United States. The bill in this respect conflicts, in my judgment, with the Constitution of the United States. The question,as Congress is well aware,is by 110 mean* a new one. That the power of removal is constitutionally vested m the President of the Uni?ed State? as a principle which has not been more distinctly declared by judicial authority and judicial commentators than it has been uniformly practiced upon by the legislative and executive departments of the Government." He then proceeds to review at length the argument in Congrees on the subject in 17P9, when the bill for establishing a "Deparment of Foreign Affurs" ?** under consideration, and says:?"The question thus ably aud exhaustively argael, was decided by the House of Representatives by :hirty-tonr to twenty m favor of the principle that the executive power of removal is vested by the Constitution in the Executive, and in the Senate by the castlug vote of the Vice President." He then reviews the action of the Supreme Court beariag on the same subject, and says "The words of the act establishing the Treasury Department are, "and whenever the same shall be removed from office by the Presid -nt of the Uniited States, or in any other case of vacancy in office, the assistant shall act " This amounted to a legislature construction of the Constitntion, and it has ever since been acquiesced in and acted upon as a decisive authority in the case. It applies equally to every officer of the Government appointed by the President, whose term of duration is not specially declared. It is supported by the weighty reason that the subordinate officers in the Executive Department ought to hold at the pleasure of the bead of the Department, because be is invested generally with the executive authority, and the participation in that authority by the Senate was an exception to a general principle, and ought to be taken strictly The President is the great responsible officer for the execution of the law, and the powerof removal was incidental to that duty and might often be reqnsite to fulfil it.' Salt Laki Naw*.?The Salt Lake redetleot tbe 5th say*: "The city was very quiet on yesterday, the excitement of election day, generally so conspicuous in other place*, scarcely beina perceptible. Voters went to the polls quietly, deposited their ballot, and returned to their homes or plaeea of business as became good citizens. Elders Brlgham Young, Jr., nn<J George D.

The lollowlng ? the report of the Uommit. tee cd tbe Judiciary, charged by the House -with the examination of certain allegations of high ennea and misdemeanors against the President ot the United Siau* : On tb? Tib day of January. Wi7. tne Hook. on tbe mouon of Hon. J nines M. Ashley, a Representative trom tbe State of Ohio, adopted tbe loliowmg preamoie and resolutions, to wit: 1 do impeach Andrew Johnson, Vlee President and nctmg President of tbe United States, of high crimes and misdemeanors, A.C. [Here follow* tbe specifications and resolutions adopted en that occasion] The duty imposed upon the committee bv this action of tbe House was of tb- highest and gravest character No committee during the entire history of tbeGovernment has ever been charged witb a more important tru?t Tbe responsibility which it imposed was of oppressive weight, and of most unpleasant nature. Gladly wonld the committee nave escaped from tne arduous labor imposed upon

it by tbe resolution el tbe House; but once imposed, prompt, deliberate. and faithful action, with a view to correct results, became its duty, and to this end it has directed Its efforts. Soon alter tbe adoption ot the resolution by tbe liouse, Hon. Jams* M Ashley toinmnni. cated to tbe committee, in support of his cbaiges against tbe President of the United Slate*, sucb facts as were in his possession, and the invesiigntion was proceeded with, and has been continued almost without a day's interruption A large number at witnesses has been examined, many documents collected, and everything done which could be done to reach a conclusion of tbe case. But the in vestlgation covers a broad lield, embraces .nany novel, interesting and important questions, and lnV( Ives a multitude of facts, while most of the witness** are distant from tbe capital, owing to which the committee, in view o? the magnitude of the interests involved in its action, have not been able to conclude its labors, and is not therefore prepared to submit adeiiDite and final report. It the in veetigauon had even approached completeness, tbe committee would not teei authorized to present the result to the House at this late period of tae session, unlets the chirges had been so entirely negatived us to admit'/ no discus turn, which, in the opimumf the committee, is not the case. Certainly no affirmative report could b-? properly considered in the expiring hours of this | Congress. Tba committee not having folly investigated all the clmrgea prepared against the Preident of the United States, it is deemed inexpedient to submit any conclusion beyond the statement thatsufficieut testimony has been brought I to its notice to justily and demand a further | prctecution of the in vestigation. The testimony which the committee has taken will pass into the custody of the Clei* of tbe House, and can ge into -he hands of such 1 committee as may be charged with tbe duty of brisging this 111 vestigatiou to a close, so that the labor expended upon it may not have been in vain. The committee regrets its inability definitely to dispose of the important s abject committed to its charge, and presents (bis report for its own justification, and for the additional purpose of notifying the succeeding Congress of the incompleteness of its labors, and tha- they should be completed. Representative A. J. Rogers, one of the Committee on tbe Judiciary, dissents trom his colleagues, saying tue committee refuses to allow a report to be made giving the evidence to the House at this time upon grounds which are no doubt satisfactory to themselves, therefore he would tot report the evidence upon which his conclusion is based, which he would gladly do did the committee deem it expedient, and says:?'1 have carefully exninined all the evidence in the case, and dc report that there ix not one particle of evidence to sustain any of the charges which tne House charged tbe committee to investigate, and that the case is wholly without a particle of evidence upon which impeachment could be founded, and that with all the effort that has been made, and the mass of evidence that has been taken, the caae is entirely bald of proof.' He Is convinced that a/l the proof that could be produced ha* been before the committee, as no paint hare been tpared to <jice the cate a full investigation.
