Hamilton as Senator from Texas, whose term expires on March 4,1S7G, is a na tive of Virginia, who emigrated to Texas about twenty years ago. During the war he was an ardent confederate, served in the southern army, and is described by disinter ested persons who are familiar with his sen timents as being still Intensely southern in all of his propensities, and rather non-pro gressive than otherwise. At the election held in December, 1?73, he was the demo cratic candidate for governor against Ed mund J. Bavis, republican, the preceding lu cumbent or the office. The result or the elec tion was a democratic majority of about 50,000, but the Supreme Court of tne state de cided that the law ordering the election was unconstitutional, and Governor Davis then a. tempted to keep Coke out of offl -e, but the President, who was appealed to, declined to interfere.

When this money was paid Campbell said Blakely owed bim ?A,ts>o. and she would have to pay the rest. She objected, and steps were taken >>y Campbell to have her removed.

DOM PEDRO. THK BRAZILIAN EMPEROR IX W1SH1XGT0N. Tbe Emperor of Brazil arrived in the city, with his suite, yesterday morning, ami regis tered at the Arlington hotel a* Due de Bra ganza, his family name. He was met at the depot by Senor Borges, the Brazilian minis ter. The Emperor attended St. Matthew's (Catholic) Charch yesterday morning. Iti tbe afternoon he visited the Capitol, and spent the evening at tiie N-ttional Observa tory in company with the Brazilian minister and Professor Newcomb. AT THK SMITHSONIAN INSTITUTION. The Emperor and suite ai<;se early this morning aud visited the Smithsonian Insti tution before breakfast. They returned to the hotel and breakfasted abont ten o'clock, a:ter which they visited tbe Capitol. AT THE WHITE HOCSK. At a quarter of 1 o'clock the Emperor, ac companied by the Brazilian minister and suite, called at the Executive mansion and were at once ushered into the bine parlor. The President soon appeared. aoisompanlsd by the Secretary or State. Secretary Fish made the formal Introductions, and after 1he usual expre ssions of pleasure at. meeting they proceeded to the red parlor, where Mrs Grant, Mrs. Fi6h, and Mrs. Fred. Grant were in waiting. Here the whote party en fcaged in a very pleasant conversation,whleh lasted over half an hour. Tne visit was a pnrely social one, and all the formalities usually incident to the reception of royalty were done away with. After bidding adieu to the President and family, the Imperial party entered their carriages and wore driven to the Capitol, it being their Inten tion to witness the impeachment proesei Irgs in the Senate chamber. ^THE CAPITOL. The i^sRprVrtSfcl at the Capitol at 11 o'clocHnpp^jgAMgMMifed to the diplo matic of R9pre?onta keeper, was the first man WiSm. and made a double-quick passage Op Stairs io greet the royal visitor. He went Into the gallery and introduced himself to tbe Dom, remarking tbat he had "charge of the south ern wing of the Capitol." Hls"i/tf<?" of doing the honors was first to scrape the acquaint ance of the Dom, and then Introduce Acting Speaker Cox, who was In the rear waiting. ?'Fay"did not accompany his father. When Dom Pedro was introduced to Cox he was so overcome with the attentions of Fltshugh, whom he seemed to regard as a sort or lord high chamberlain, that he scarcely no'iced the diminutive Speaker, and did not even condescend to get up from his seat. Tne Emperor, after remaining in the gallery a lew minutes, qnietly observing the Ameri can system of buttonholing Congressmen, went down to tbe Speaker's room and was quite surprised w.iea formally intro duced to Mr. Cox, as the Speaker of the Hnnse of Representatives, a really bigger man (officially) than Fitzhcgh. In passing Irom the House to the Senate side of the Capitol he was besieged by an army or page boys for his autograph, but he snoot his heaJ, as If to nay he be "domed" If be would and he didn't. He then returned to the House gallery, and when the chaplain t?egan his prayer he ro?e up, but finding tbat It was the custom of the members to worship In a recumbent position with their heels on their desks, he sat down again. The Dom stands over six feet In bis low-quarter shoos. He tas a full growth of gray beard and gray hair. He was dressed to-day In a fall suit of black, and wore an old-fashioned nlng hat, something after the style which a Galileeaa fiNherrnan puts on to attend a Sunday fune ral, He is apparently between fifiy and sixty years of age. lie is somewhat a->ove the medium bight, with verv broad shoulders, and is qui'e stoutly built. Oil the whole, Lis i ersucal appearance is qnlte prepossess ing, aid l:e ha* left a very favorable Im pression wherever he has been. At twenty minntes after twelve o'clock 1 ^preventatives Faulkner, Springer an 1 Williams, of the Foreign Affairs Commit tee, called upon him In the gallery. The Dom shook hands with them. At twelve o'clock aLd thirty mlr.utes the Ernpsroraad bis party went over to the Senate. The Eirperor entered the diplomatic gal lery ol the Senate at 2 p. m. He had been Informally invited to take a seat on the floor of the Senate, but modestly declined, pre ferring tne diplomatic gallery. It Is almost needless to say that he was the target for every eye during his stay. The females Wrre esjec'ally carious,as usual, and many afitr neck was craned to get a square look at a "live emperor." THIS EVENING. The emperor will dine at 4 o'clock, and at 3 will visit the Government Printing office. This evening he will occupy a box at the National Theater to witness the Voke* per formance. If possible the imperial party will visit Mount Vernon to morrow morn ing, and will leave on the 1:30 train to be present at the opening of the Centennial in Philadelphia. The District In Congi NATIONAL DROVE YARD COMPANY. In the Senate to-day, Mr. Davis, by re quest, introduced a bill which was referred to the District Committee, to incorporate the "National Drove Yard of the District of Columbia." Tbe bill names as incorpora tors Messrs. 8. D. Linn, L. D. Means, L. C. Sileot, James E. Yates, J. T. Varnell, Thos. Burch, Jas. F. Brown, finil Fling, Robert Coster, Richard Smith, W. W. Scott, Chas. Becker, Wm. E. Clark, Jacob H. Kingla, gives them the usual powers of a corporation, and authorizes the company to erect at their own expense in the northern or northwest ern pari of the county, the site to be ap proved by tbe Board of Health or health offi cer of said District, yard pens, scales, and all neces*ary buildings for tne accommodation of live stock, and to feed tbe latter at a fair compensation. The bill further provides that all cattle bought or sold in the District sball be weighed on the scales of tbe com pany which shall receive two cents per hun dred pounds weight for all live stock sold by weight, and for cattle not weighed ten cents per head, for sheep two cents, cows ten cents, calves five cents, and bogs five cents. The bill requires the company to erect the neces sary buildings, &c., before January 1, 1877, and to give public notice when ready to ac commodate persons dealing in live 6tock) provides tbat all other drove yards doing buslnees in the District shall then c?ase such business within thirty days; and allows the company to issue stock to tbe amount of #100,000 to be divided into 2,000 shares or SCO each. BILL TO REPAVE PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE. The bill to provide for the paving of Peun s> Ivan la avenue introduced in the House to day differs from the Senate bill In the fol lowing particulars: The Commission instead of being a detail of army officers Is named as Edward Clark, Architect of the Capitol; Adolf Cluss and CharlesT. Mason. They are to lay such pavement as in their Judgment Is deemed best. Tbe stretch of pavement between 9th and 10th streets, or so much thereof as Is new, U not to be disturbed, un less It may be necessary for grading. In other essentials tbe bill is the same as the Senate bill. Mr. Buckner, when the Senate bill ccmes up, proposes to lay It on the table and press his own as a substitute. Sad Death of, a child?a little eight year old son of Mr. Virgil Johnson, of Bar ren county, Ky., met with a most shocking ard appalling death on Friday last. He was ridlr g a mule, wbich became frightened aud ran away, and the little fellow, In falling or attempting to Jump, got bis foot entangled In a chain which was fastened to tbe mule, and was beld tight wblld the mule continued to run.

That the doubtful political rela tions existing between the District of Co lnmbia and the government of the United States, the prodigious debt,of which scarcely more is known than that it is constantly Increasing; the uncertainty of the amount of the taxes to be levied and collected from year to year; the reckless and improvident manner in which the public moneys have been expended; the enormously expensive Improvements made-many of which must now be replaced; the complicated Hystem of government, extravagant in its expendi tures bejond all precedent: the selecting of strangers to administer the government who are ignorant of our laws, unacquainted with our wants, indiOrei.t to our necesrltlos, and not in sympathy with our people, have hroueht fluauclal ruin and <!isgraC3 upon the District, Impoverished many or its citizens, rei deml property unproductive and depreci ated its valne. made the cities of the District unattractive to strangers as a place of per manent residence, repelled capital that would otherwise have sought investment in the District, and have, in a wont, brought practical bankruptcy on the District, to the dishonor of the general government that has ?the power of exclusive legislation over it.' Your petitioners, animated by a sincere desire to restore the solvency, preserve the honor and secure the permanent happiness and prosperity of the people of the District, humbly pray that your honorable bodies will promptly consider the subject, and so legislate that cur rights may be protected and preserved; that the people of the Dis trict may fee wholly relieved from the un lawful debt created by the agents of the general government without their con sent, and over whose official conduct they had no control whatever; that unnecessary and wasteful expenditures of the public moneys may bo arrest J, rigid economy be enforced; the form of government simpli fied? its relations to the general^overnmetit ascertained and fixed by stable laws; a ad the necessary expense of any future govern ment be justly and fairly proportioned be tween the general government and the Dis trict. And that these things may be fully ac complished, your petitioners further pray that a rigid, thorough and exhaustive in quiry and investigation may be instituted to ascertain the true character an* nature of this debt, and how mncb thereof has been created corruptly, dishonestly, or unlawful ly, and that all wrong doers may be made to feel tbat dishonesty will be certainly sought out ard Inexorably puni6hed.

UoHDiT, May 8. 8 EN ATE?At 11 a. m., pursuant to order, the Senate (silting on the trial or impeach ment) momed Its session. The usnal proclamation made by the Sergeant-at-arms, and the Secretary was directed to notify the House that the Senate was ready to proceed. The manager* and the counsel having en tered and taKen their seats, the minutes of Saturday's proceedings in impeachment were read. MR. MANAGER KSOTT then addressed the Set ate, resuming his argement from the point whera he mspeud ed on Friday last- lie said the line of argu ment which he hsl proposed to maintain had beeii so ably and powerfully followed by his colleagues that tut little remained for him to do, except, perhaps, to recapitulate some of the more prominent points. He held that this mode or procedure (impeachment) was designed to protect the purity of the public service and pro\ lde against misde meanor and malfeasance I*? office. Accord ing tc the learned cenusel for -heaocused, the role objeci aimed at Ik to secure removal from office. But the ure&t men wno made the constitution had different ideas. They provided that not only should the criminal be removed from office, but be shonld be perpetually dis qualified front i.c'dinK office. The.r design was to exhibit such a historical ex. ample as would prevent the imita tion of their crimes by their successors in office. It was designed not for th-a harra?s n.ent of a single individual, not lot purposes of vengearce, but for the sake of example, as a precaution against future o:Tences of the same kind. He said the learne 1 counsel were dignifying their client tex> m.ich when they supposed that this proceeding was merely for the punraeof harassing and dis qualifying him. The House of Rtpresenta tlves, in sending these articles hare, had a far higher purpose in view?the vindication and the purification of public irorals. It would be extraordinary for the Senate to de cide that such a momentous anomaly ex isted in our institutions that a party enter ing an office, with all the responsibilities pertaining thereto, should escape those re sponsibilities by resigning. If it had been intended that only the*e> in office should be Impeached, then why did not the framers of the Constitution insert a clause "that oulv those In office should be impeaciied If they had Intended that no man should be impeached except he was in office, then they certainly would have said so, for they were men who always said exactly what they meant. The very fact that they omitted to make this distinction is conclusive of their intentions. The impeachment claise Is not only not susceptible of the constrt ctlon put upon it by the e ounsel, but It does not admit ci any such construction. At llSJ&m. Mr. Ilam'.ln move I that the Senate sitting in Impeachment adjourn till 12.15 p. m. Agreed to. At 12 o'clock the t*eiI8LATIV* SESSION OF THE ATE was called to order, and prayer eifiered up by the chaplain. Tbo legislative journal of Saturday was I read. The chair laid before the Senate a commu. n! cation from the Secretary of War, enclos ing report of Assistant Adjutan: General Vincent relative to the bounties to the evjl ored soldiers. Referred to Committee ou Appropriations Mr. Davis introduced bill to incorporate the National Drove-yard Association of the District of Columbia. Referred to Commit tee on District of Columbia. The Senate then resumed the considera I tion of , IMPEACHMENT PROCEEDINGS. Senator Morton propounded the questlan whether there had ever been an instance where a party who had been Impeached by Parliament bad afterwards been tried in the courts of justice; or of a party who, having been tried in the courts, bad afterwards beeu impeached by Parliament. Mr. Knott said he did not know that there was any 6uch case. Mr- K. then resumed his argument in elefence of the Jurisdiction of ihe Senate, characterizing the position of the respondent's counsel, when workci out to its lexical conclusion, as ridiculous, aud as making impeachment a fare-?. Ia con clusion, Mr. K. said he was perfectly con tent to leave this qu<*tfon witn the Senate? perfectly satisfied that no large bo.iy of right-minded men would condemn the House lor what it had done, or condemn the Seuate ."or lt? decision, whatever that decision might be. He could make no passionate ap peals to the Senate; be could not forget that It was sitting here the highest constitutional body In the land, called upon to decide the gravest question that bad ever been brought before it. He trusted that verdict would be that the American Senate, unbiased by party or partisan clamor, would have the sterling virtue to administer the law. He felt sure that the counsel ou the other side would agree with him. On closing Mr. Knott was greeted witn applause in the galleries. Judge Black said that he felt aa keenly as any one the Importance and the gravity of tire occasion. He asked that If in his embar rassment or bis haste he should say anything that was improper he would be censured tor it, but that they should spare bis client, who bad suffered enough. He agreed that this question ought to be, and ha believed it would be, decided on the law of the case and free from all outside Influences. He would cone directly to the subject before them; first, whether or not this party here was liable to impachment by the House of Representatives because he was lately Sec retary of War, and second, whether his resig nation as Secretary of War took him out of the Jurisdiction, and whether the fact that bis resignation was made to avoid such Jurisdiction had anything to do with the question. This latter tact had nothing at all to do with the main question, it was purely of a speculative nature; improper tor the 8enate to determine, and wrong for him to discuss. He did not deem it necessary for him to go over the ground of bis colleagues, but he would address himself to some or the points or the managers. There were some points to which it was Impossible for him to reply. He had listened with great admiration to the manager who had last spoken on Sat urday, [Mr. Hoar] It was the most finished oration to which be (Mr. B.) had ever lis tened. But It was given In great part to the abuse of Gen. Belknap, which the honorable manager bad no right to do. He had assumed that everything charged against Oen. Bel knap was true. The manager had no right to play the part of Cicero and set up Gen. Belknap as an imaginary Marc Anthony. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIV ES. ?
