IMP E1 CHMENT. ?f Willtaai LUjrd fianhM at tie BrteUya leukayef luii Laat Iflflt. A large, fashionable ud intellectual audience si*m Med in the Brooklyn Academy of Mane M avuning. They were drawn ibiiuer by the announcement (hat William Lloyd Garrison would deliver a lecture on "Im peachment." When the lecturer made his appearance ea the platform he was received with applause. A. L. Fa well, of the imi-Slawry Standard, opened the pro oeedmia by stating that another bill on reoenatruction la before Congrum, and that it will probably re ?elvo a veto ; that the flrsi thing Congress should do is to impeach the President. It aboold not die aolre wfthont preferring the impeachment which the people preferred at (he laat election. He then Intro doeed In eomplimontary ierma the lecturer ef the even ing, William Lloyd Garrison, of Bottom (Applause.) The distinguished lecturer then came forward and ad, tonnsed the meeting aa follows :? Lamm t*i> Gnvxicms?I see it oot In the TrOntne that I am to speak to-night on the Impeachment of the Piwatdoni of the United States. The announcement is ? little too specific and exclusive, for my topic is "Our hiattoaal Situation." But you may bu sure before 1 get through 1 shall hare something to say on the subject of (?punchment (Applause ) With a recent exception K tu nee ly a your since I addressed a public audience, ow ing ton severe o dily Injury. Nor do 1 yet feel in n oniiOhio meninl or payaieal condition to undertake such n task. Bat I am tiers to meet my engagement as best 1 may, throwing myself a pan your indulgenoe for any pneoeptible lack of rigor or interest in my lecture. If you will grant mo n quiet hearing I shall feel wary grateful, a* wall aa the beat complimented. There are sensatooal speakers whom chief aim nooma to be to bring down the bouse. For myself, I shall feul incomparably more gratided if, by anything I may any, 1 can bring the house up? up to a higher plane nt thought and action, though no audible approval be given. Though for so long a period thrown out of the arena of public discussion, my conaolation has b?en that any voice wa< not needed to nee pen popular abhorrence of Southern treason, or to vindicate the claims of the freedmen to nil the rights of American citizens. If at ?ay time prior to the late rebellion my testimonies and labors were of anv value in effecting the emancipation ?f the millions who ware doomed to a life lung bondage, aow that their chains are broken, and their perpetual freedom constitutionally d 'creed, and their friends and advouate* are legion, it is of no imi>ortacbe whether I apeak or remain silent Nevertheless, while there is a right tube obtained, era wrong to be redressed, i can sever be au indifferent sp ctator of the conflict, until the reason be dethroned, or life become extinct. dHory to God I 1 have lived to see the haughty Olave power of the .Sooth crushed as a pot ear's vessel is broken. I have lived to see that consti tution which through its old pro slavery guarantees waa indeed "a oovenan' with death," purged of its Hood guiltiness. I trust that before this mortal shall put on immortality I may be graciously permitted to see (nose who ure now recognlxed as freedmen In the South In the full possession of every right and pri . liege en joyed by their white fellow countrymen. Every day wear? making progress in that direction.. Happily we are ao longer to declaim about slave corrals, or slave ?action blocks, or sieve prisons, or Fugitive Blave laws. ?r pro slavery compromises. These belong to the pa-t. The question of the hour relates to reconstruction snd eWaenfiflp, the osiab'iBhm -nt of tree institutions on a tunnOD basis throughout the country. In the di ecub of this question not a small anti-slavery band bit millions of voices, are earnestly engaged, and Doming pise so Interest* or ebaiienges the public si tuation. Once the wrath of the South was concentrated ?poo the sbnltttonista. Now they are lost slgbtof, and it ft* a royal Congress which r?n.?es her hottest indigna tion. Bo long aa that body by its action draws down npon its head all the vials of bar rebel mat gnlty 1 shall Jain in no speaking impeachment of its Integrity, for ouch a filthy outpouring Is a good certificate of its patriotic character. Congress may need counsel and attmulus, but to hurl opprobrious epithets at it should feu loft exclusively to rebels snd oopperheads. (Ap atatus ) Tuere is no serious di\islon of opinion in the loyal ranks as to the claims of the colored population to ?quel and exact justice, or the necessity ol so recon structing the fallen Southern States as to give mutual protection to the rights of sit classes. True, the ballot Isast yet in the bands of the freedmen as it o igiit to i it must be. and, assuredly, as it will be, boih us a ? of right sad a weapon of protection. True, the aramnt ?tats of the -outh Is more or less chaotic; the ?res of rebellion are <et hotly smpuidnlng in ijieir asaaa; the rood tlou of tho* w o have been sot free M attended with many sad ami harrowing ruocomitanis la a few extreme cases ibeir former owners have attempted to exercise dominion over ihrtn as of ?id. In o<ber instances free blacks have been sold into temporary slavery, as a penally for crime, or cruelly ?eourged m public at the whipping post Tiiey have feme frequently delrauded of their earnings, and in ttie making of industrial contract". Here and there the ?ferns, established by Northern benevolenee for their fewtnniiioo, hsvs bean violently broken up, the teachers own polled to fly tor their llvos snd the schoolbouses feutavd or pulled down. O it rages of all kinds have been ?mat wantonly inflicted upon them, in order to make the.r ?mancipation a mockery. And, to cap the climax, thou martf of them stj alleged to have been brutally murdered, tfeoagb the number probably is somewhat exaggerated, ?st there is this wide difference between the old >4gime Sad the present. Ail thorn crum a snd sufferings pro ouod from bo established institution, but are simply in aldsatal, however grievous and deplorable, and certainly they are in flagrant violation ol the laws of the laud. They belong to a convulsive, transitional state, and in vary many rases have been penetrated solely to spile tfeo execrated Yankees and gratify the wounded feelirgs af baffled nonfederal? am hi ion. To argue from their ?ccurronce that the coaaiuui lonal anil-slavery amend ment >? o nattily, or tbfet the condition Of the freedmen Is worse than when they wen held as chattel slaves. Is to feo m Cfosoopie io vision and unphlosophic in Judg mmt It should be rememlwred that such outrages amy mom to bo.oi' unusual frequency and severity b cause they con now be reported, snd through the medium of s Ihoneanrt Jtinnial* made known to tte whole coun try.

In tbc mid mgbt reign of slavery, though countless atrocities were perpetrated, the heipleee suflerers bad to vrran and hferod without n symiieUilziog Irieud, a protecing voice, ? reporting pen or an electric telegraph c m dlu u. in s etoflie day?I sincerely beiieve in a single day?those atrocities exceeded in number and cruu'ty far more ea* have taken place in n twelvemonth the traffic in b iuid fleah was aa hourly puce.

While my bean has bled to view et what tbey have had to end.ire since emanci wa* proclaimed, arising out of the old broken it of slavery, 1 am not surprised uor dismayed at anything that has happened.

I can answer these questions only in tbe briefest manner for I will not trespass too long on your time and pa'kmoe. First, then, what shall be done with the Soutb. Obviously, we should do by her as we would be done by. No vengennoo should be inflicted, no de grading humiliation required, no oppressive burdens imposed?notning beyond what Jnstice demands and tho public safety and general welfare make Imperative. It may suit the malignity of parties tor the Richmond Km to say, "Wo know mat tbe great mass oi tbo North bale us with an inien- ty I cat would startle the devils in bell;" but nothing can be further from the truth I'ruly u would not lie vory surprising if, in full v ow ol tho unparalleled horrors of Audcnon vl lie and I.ibby Prison, oi the revolting massacre of the colored sold lore at Fort Pillow, of tbe horrible .laughter iu the street* or New Orleans, of the worse than savige manner in which the ?ouih conducted the war, mu t'la'iug the bodies Uf Northern soldiers who fail in con flict?in some Instanoes turning (heirbones Into trinket* and often perUdiously hoisting the white tla of truce, the bier to carry out their murderous do-igri* I repeat, it would not be very surprising If, In onnre upla. Urn ? f this awful spectac. ?, and r>calling these terrible reiuini cences fierce maledictions and cries far retal a tunio tbe utmost should bo beard on every hand. And yet in all the North there is no chcn bed wrath, no cull for vengeauce, no desire to return evil for evil On (he contrary, there is no other wish than that the south may be speedily clothed, and In her right m nd fur nished with all the means needed for the intellectual and moral improvement of her benighted mass -s, aided to any extent by Northern capital, raechaahal resources and enterprise, her waste places restored, her desolation removed, her peace ?nd prosperity built oa an immovable basis. Tills she baa seen, but cannot understand, nor iu her present in flamed state cen she ballets it; bftt let racts speak lor themselves. Tbe niiiM of the people at the ooutlf have been guilty of high treason against the govern ment, and have thereby legally forfeited their lives: nevertheless, up to this hour not one of ihem all baa been punished or even arraigned at this tribunal of Jus tice for this deadly crime?not even the arcn-traitor J h.inself, Jefferson Davis Is this a proof of Northern | hatred or Northern vengeance T An almost universal amnesty has been given them, end their confiscated property generally restored. Is this a proof that the North is Implacable towards tbe South? I In 'he ptans for reconstruction no ether conditions have been sought to be impoved on the South than the North binds herself to obey. Is this a proof of Nor>hern intol erance T In the spirit of good will and laudable enter prise Northern capitalists, mechanics and laborers nave gone down to tbe South to build railroads, advance the Interest* of agriculture, make produclve once more the abandoned plantations, extend the mannfectiire of ail those great staples on which Southern prosperity de pends. rxpand her mineral resources, widen hor commerce, and make her wilderness to "bid and blossom as Ihe rose." This she has treated with malts nant contempt, adding, In many case-, violence to menace?rejeetlng their ov rtores and retm-iug ihcir pro,'erod esristaaee, leaving nothing undone |o prevent success crowning their enterprises, and often compelling them to fly from their schools for eafetv. Is this a proof of Northern Intolerance t Millions of dollars have been . expended by the government, contributed by tbe North for tl.a relief and maintenance oiT sufferers In the South?to relieve tbe woes of me Booth, brought on by ibeir own ecu in this terrible rebellion. And yet this has been made bat ? fresh occasion U insult and slander those who hare given them bread lo appease their hunger and clothing to rover iheir nakedness. I may give yon the latest illustration of this hateful spirit. A short tune sit.co the Cooper Institute In New Tork was crowded with a mint r-s portable gathering of ciitaena to dense means to afford relief to the destitute in the South, and among other eloquent and effective speakers was Rev Henry Vtart tree.her. who spoke with his characteristic tenderness and generosity, urging the most liberal contributions by the claims of a common brother hood. Now listen to the R.chmood TV?j The gcofleman read tbe quotation, and commented sarcastically upon it, continuing ae follows ? Beside those, millions of dollars?which have been ex pended tor the sustenance of the suffering, rebellious population of the Bomb, (bus under the most flagrant provocation literally obeying tbe scrptural Injunction "If thy enemy bnngcr. feed him; if be thtmt, give him drink ''?millions more have been raised by volun tary contributions at tbe North, to organise schools and furnish teachers and school books for the education, not ! only of the blacks, but also o the whites, after the pat : tern or the New England common school system. And If thin Iu valuable privilege has been spurned by the lat ter. bat thankfully accepted by tbe former, It onlv shown thai there Is more bepe of tbe eievstios of this black than of the while race. It Is the noblest boner .cttoe that can possibly be bestowed upon tbe South, and it has Just been Increased to the extent of an additional million of dollars by that truest or all muniflcent phllantbro i pista, George Feabody?(applause)?? native of the "Old Bay State," tbe 3'ate of all o'bere most detested I by tbe Hontbern chivalry. Already some fit teen hundred cotnpeuAt teachers have rone down to tbe South on this mission *>f love and o, tight, many of them of the highest cellar*, leaving homes of affluence and refinement, who are scorned, Insnlted, ostracised from white society, and subjected to a thousand priva tion* and peril* because of their love for God's oppressed sad suffering poor. Already an army of more than a ' bundled thousand freedmen can read and write; and the ory la, "Still (bey come," eager to learn, and show, leg e capacity to acquire knowledge scarce ly equalled by any or their while tradueera. The inception and maintenance of this sublime educa tional mffvemcut of Northern philanthropy and pa triotism oon-tiinte the i Umax of bumsu magnanimity, having no parallel in alt history, under clr< umstiincea ?veb remotely analogous. It marks tbe highest range yet attained by any people In Christian Civilization Whet, then, In the second place, is tbe exact statu* of [ the late Confederate "totes In the American Union? ' ?* the Gordian knot thet box puzzled tbe wits of Northern men ebeib' r to cut It at one bold stroke or still laboriously % try to untie It. Nothing lias ????ted to mo clearly in the path ol duty In lire r-euta meat of this vexed question?that Is. reasoning upon ihe plan of the government. No historic pre eilont csn be round to help to a rhhl conclusion, lor no *ucb eveni a* the Iste reb'Uton la found In the record of na.ions. Bcarcely a rqv or light can be got by consult ing the con illation of the United Hiatcs, lor It has sole reference to Stales revolving In harmony around a common contra, not to States dismembered, rebellious, waging war against Ihe general government, and elm Dg at the overthrow of the Union. The oa-e is wholly ?Doraaious, to be settled on tin own merits ?nd as gene ral *n ety rexotrce.

But w enever speak of reoonstructint Territories. 1 In regard to my third proportion, How shall libertv bo secured at the .-oath a. it h at the North t I answer: re member what the South is; remember that she belong* to the dark ages, not to the nineteenth o niorv; that alio is the habitation ol cruelty, that she never was demo cratic, nor for democratic forms, except as she bold absolute mastery over the couutry: that those who led In the rebellion now hold evorv place of honor and emolument on her soil where she is froe:o choose; that the entire white population, with few exceptions, are embittered enemies, and the largest portion of them in the depths of moral degrada tion and as illiterate as the heathen in India. Left to herself, the most dreadful contrqueaees may with certainty be predicted. In that case, woe, woe, woe to the hapless freed men, and wis: to every mau known or suspected to have been loyal in scuiiment during the rebellion. Lynch law, assessina tion and civil war will do their fatal work. Within a few days the Nashville press has stated that s diabolical conspiracy had been entered jnto by certain rebellious cilizens of counties of the Stale or Tennesson to procure the assassination of a number of leading and iutliieutial Union men, whose names are given, as well as tne prices to no given for the work, all of the parties being men who were oiiicers in the federal array and residing in the Third Congressional district. Unle s predictions can bo faisllled as ociations of Union men will soon also be the order of the day In laid .v II county, Texas. If such things are done in ihe green tree, what wilt he done in tlio dry? Ir. without representatives in Congress, and while partially subjected to military rule, each* to obtain one and r move the other, this is the spint of the South. What she will be emboidoped to do when fully reins wed may no easily conjectured. What then Is the inevitable conclusion ? This:?The Soutu must be kept under the "ise and benetlceut guardian ship of the general government for an iudeiinitc (i?rlod, that Is. until she is civilized and preponderantly loya-, bo that period when It mac.

Hmdukpokt, Codd., Feb. 26, 1867. The politicians of Connecticut have given P. T. Bar num auotb r show. Tins Jt? beyond nil doubt an estab lished fact, and as bis friends and admirers are using evefy effort to secure his election (o Congress from the Fourth I'ongreHsional detrict tho Interest in the com est is rapidly increasing and will ere long be developed into a genuine excitement. Then you may expect to bear a great deal about stratagem and spoils, as the great showman is already openly charged with bsing up to trlclcs, while hie r -at, Wm. H Barnum. of .Salisbury, an honest aud. unpretending ironmonger, is equally is highly kept up to snutl'. 'I his whole iflair la unquestionably a remarkable political exhlbi- ' uon. And, by the way, it Is not wholly unlike some cher exhibitions with which Mr. Baruum?not tbe iron monger. but the showman?baa had to deal In this 'xhibitton a sUx wd manager, particularly on tbe Union icpublican side, is absolutely necessary ; and where can you Uud a greater one than tbe Union republican nomi nee'' Of all the political nutmegs on the spicy little tree of Connecticut, P. T. Burnum. the showman, la the ? rosiest. Ho can pulvertxc them all. For this reason he is going to he elected. Tbe truth of llie matter is, that Connecticut wanted a svnsaiion. It has at last wot one. It warned soiueth ng which would draw out uu ont rpris.ug correepoudeut of the H tenet. D. It has ad mirably succeeded. Bestdes, Connecticut wants one able mau to represent it in Congress Where is there a man who is "able" to do more than Barnuin, tbe snowman f Did he n.il sue cued In "coining It over" thousands of p opl >, in all parts dfth* United States, some of whom boasted that they po .-eased ihc highest refinement and iu'eliigencc, and, hence, dor* it niand to reason that he cannot '* OdRta "manage" tinflgrcss where thore baa been no rellue ment uod such n lack of dignity and statesmanlike ah llty observable fnr years pa-t. Every Congressman when he leaves bis home Is a little lion, or ihu big dog ol the occasion, or something of the sort, and worn these all get tog. t tier id Washing ton anil assemble in Congress many of them forget io throw of! their animal propensities and liecome states nu n. Therefore they are constantly growling and bark ing at each other. Tbe lion from Pennsylvania opens his ogiv mouth and shows 1iis teeth and growls at the B ar front Ohio, while tbe cunning tox from another Mate puts out his paw to see what tome wild eat will give Litn. Indeed, tbey ail have their paws out. air. Barnum, tho showman, In being elected to enter thin menagerie, wi'l go there w.th experience dose behind him, and will quickly red io o tne animals to that degri-e of sobr.ety which his teroperaac" lectures effected In the districts where be " preached." His particular iriend and by some eiyl >d " Man Friday," Mr. David Fherwood. who It la alleged is doing up tbe election for Mr P. T. B. will of course accompany the showman to Wa-hln. ton and a'Siat him in leading'he animals to drink nothing b .t pure water. What a great moral spectacle this will be.! Forn y will immediately lose thwbcneili whlcb he gen from that Influence "corked np as tightly as tf be hod been in a bottle." Aireadv the newspapers have commenced to take aides, according to their party aud other interests, in support ol' Uie -lie or the other of th ? rival candidates Boon *e may expect to see all ihnee wily attacks made upou the immed atoly inoroxtod parties which ever nr. company a political candidate's march to fame, whether he is honest or not. Fifty thousand dollars are said to be in tho held, ready for use. KuuioF also has it that the showman has challenged bis rival to atnmp the dis trict with him. but the latter it Is understood has de cline I as ha is net anxious for the ofllcu and does not wi h to make a show of himself In any way, not oven politically. rtm snow* ah'h Brvat The d"tnncrats on their side claim that they have made a capita) selection In the nomma'lon of William H. Barnum. of Salisbury. He is said to be a man of superior SDlllty and lb everv respect a complete coun terpart of P. T. Barnum, the Union republican nominee. It la further stated that be (the ironmonger, not the showman) did not seek ibe position in which we now And biro, and that he accepted It only after being pressed to <Jo so by scores of hta Irienda. When, during the war, a draft was ordered tn his (the ironmonger's, not the showman's) town, and tbeie was a fearful appre hension among tbe wives and children of the lal>uriiig meg ibat their husbands and fathers would be forced to leave them, pcrbapa Borer to return, tor. Barnum (the Ironmonger, not the showman) did not atop to express regrets and tender empty con to 1st I owe, but drew hie check for the whole amount ncceeeary to satisfy the d' inand of the government, and thus relieved many an act)lag heart. Need we wonder, Mrs tbe Norwich Ad r ifisr, If the worklngmen of the Salisbury Iron mlree and factories are a little emphatic la their frieadabip for inch a mi 7 It i - a matter of hietory that for more than forty yean tbe connt.ee of Fall Be Id and Lltohfleid, which bow com pose the Fourth Congreseionat district, have been repre sented in tbe popular branch of the natienal Legislature by only twe non-profesaiooal men; and during thirty years ao business man has received a Congresdhnal nomination, while in the eouree of the same period, ex cepting two ML it.'a, the bar bee been drawn upon for political talent. Some four years ego a prominent man ufacturer was presented to a convention for a t oogres sional nomination, bat he failed let secure it because he waa not e lawyer, and therefore judged to he unfit to manage connectk ut'e little caae la CongreHL It will be seen then that the nominations of P. T Barnum, the ehowman, and Wm. H. Barnum, the sturdy ironmonger, are exceptions to whet baa op to the present boar hern the general rale. ? inn rnnmn on. , The Belfast JtmmaL in speaking of Mr. Barnnm'e, the showman, nomination, aeys:?"Barnum, the.ehow man, baa been nominated for Congress liy tbe radicals of the Fourth Connecticut district. A Alter candidate eonld hardly he found." WHAT MAT sa Tim BfVP or IT. In this political struggle the supporters of the re spective alias charge the mndidale* with attempting to st al each ether's thunder. Fnr Instance, the friends of P. T. Bamt.n, tbe showman, any that William B.
