May 6, 1876. The Senate resume! the consideration of the articles of Impeachment against W. W. Belknap, late Secretary of War. The respondent, with Messrs.

Hut few Senators being present Mr. Thurman moved a call ol the Semite, when forty-twoSenators responded to their names and ttio Cuiiu unnoticed that a quorum was present. IJl'KSTioXS SI'liMITThli. Mr. CoMtuMo, of New York, submllled the following Qtiestloiis to (ho Board of Mauu^orti:? tint?If two persons guilty of crime In oilico cease to lie olitccrs at tlio same tilne, ono by removal and iho other by resignation, Is one rather than tho other sub Jocl to till peach mont? If a distinction between tho two cases exists please state IL Second la a private citizen liable to Impeachment under tbo constitution ol the l'ut ted States ? Ii his having previously held an olllce distinguishes him iu this respect from other citlzi us please trace tho diu tiuutiou to the clause of tbo constitution or to tbo prin ciple in which it ia found. Mr. Mitchell, of Orogon, subin.tted Iho following question:? The constitution provides that uheu the 1'resident of the I'nitod States Is tried on inipeachnicut the Chief Justice shall preside Suppose a lato 1'resident were Impeaehcd lor high crimes and misdemeanors com mitted while President and presented at tho bar ol the Senate lor trial who would preside, the Chief Justice or the President of tho Senate* Manager Knoit informed tho Senate that ho was in no better condition of health this morning than ho was at tbo time of adjournment yesterday, and that an arnuigomont had been made betwocu his colleagues and Iho counsel lor tho deicudant that his colleagues who desired to address tbo 8uu.no s ouh' proceed now, and that he would make his remarks on Monday. Me asked tto Senate to concur ill that arrangeniotit. AROLMSMt OV MAN AliKIt JKSKS. Xo objeotiou was mado and Maua^or Jouks pro seeded to address tho Seuate. 1 lie points, ho said, that wero made on the part of the defence wore, llrst, could the Senate, netwlth- ' Handing tho resignation of the defendant, taku juris diction r?and second, whether 'the facts surrounding tho resignation aro pertinent to be considered with reference to tbo efloot of tho resignation. As j a general answer to those points he would : lay that every case should bo always Judged on Us own standing, because two eases were seldom, II ever, strictly anolugous. Tho main and ma terial question in the case was whether tho Senate, I sitting as a court of impeachment, hud jurisdiction over the defendant, and w hem or by his resignation, alter the crime ?u committed, he was placed beyond tho jurisdictional power. Jurisdiction was limited in 1 ono or more of three ways. It uas limited territo rially, limited as lo subject uiattor and limited as to pet sou. Territorially, tbo Senate bail jurisdiction co exiensivo with tbo earth. Whethor the ollonce was committed in Washington, London, Home or i'ekin did not alien the right to Judge the ollouder. A? to the subject matter the Seuate could tuke cogmznnse or Ail luipeachable offences. The plea in this ruse did uot deny the ollenco c hargod to by impeachable. and thuro tore it was unuei ur.-ary to disuun* what constituted an imooacbable oQeuce. lie proceeded to nuoto authorities In support of Ills positiou that tho Senate had jurisdiction in ibis caset and agreed that II an oiliest could c>capo the penalty ol iini'encbiuont by resignation bel'oio trial he could also do so by resignation alter uil the Icruialities of a trial nad been observed, but before judgment bad been rendered, winch would bo in opposition to every roc ognu. d principle ol luw. llo asked w bettier llie rule was that the criminal must be an ollicur at the time bo committed the crime or at the umo he is convicted and said that unless that question was to he answered in opposition to all tho course of the procedure ol criminal law it was tbo status of the- criminal ut the tine- of the comiins ?ton ol the crina. that established alike his uuili and the Jurisdiction to w Inch he Miould be held amenable In reply to the suggestion by the delcucc as t? trying t.cneral Jackson (il he were now alive) lor tin removal Ol the I lilted MSles deposit., he asserted that, 11 (ieii eral Ja> k.-on w? re now alive and had committed a crime wnne III oil ice, and u the House of Hepn senta tivvs, endowed ds it is with tile right to judge who shall be impeached or not, ?a:d that hi should be im ]>eached. the Senate would nave power lo try biui. ANALlHiOl's hKASOXIMi. Mr. Jknks proceeded lo argue Ironi the aflalogv of Courts mariiui that the Senate bad jur.sdicllou since a court marital had jurisdiction over a discharged soldier lor oliences commuted while bo was tu service. Mr. Loua.n, of Illinois, said. under rule ol of tho I Article.-, of War any officer who wa> guilty ol conduct unbecoming an oih. er and a gentleman should bo dis missed irom ibo sorv.ee, ati.l Ue a>kud the managers IU u case where (in olllcer of the army after becoming ' a private citi/en >hould bo tried under this article Wbal would lie the juii-iin lit of the Court t Mr. Ji:.\ks ?aul the judgment would be nothing- but the court maitial would nave jurisdl Hon Neverthe less. want ol capacity to uiloiec a Judgment did not lesiroy jurisdiction. Hall ol tho judgments now rendered inordinary courts were, perhaps, delcatod by Inilure iu execution Besides, iu the cjse suggi sted by Uic Senator, the whole remedy was removal irom ser vice, wmlu in this case ihcro was tho lurther iHualty ?I distpiaiilicullou. It was also to lie borne in Blind lliai a deiendaut could not take advantage ?f bis luoompeuncy if no had brought ,t sUiut by his on u acl. lor example, a man ?eniencvd to capital punishmeut could uoi escape the I tonally i>j drinking uiiuscii into a .lite of maudfiti in sanity aim pfe.'tdiug that an insane pei?i>n could not bo executed, lie would still havs to sutler the decree ol the Isw. because his Weakness waa artificial and Inndo by himself. In itie prcscul case there wua no doubt ft bo lit lne tact I fiat tho incompetency of Iho ueieudaut If ho were lucompetent, was ihe result of hM own act! Tllli CASK OK IIASTIXUN. Mr. Jk.xks thin aliudid to tho cose or Warren Ua*ungs, who was imjioached as "late Governor Gen eral of ludia," Just as in this cose Mr Belknap had been impcached as late Scciulary of War. lheioun ?el ou tue other side had nrked ir tho House claimed that the Senate nad jurisdiction to try any one ol , the 40,01X1,1)00 ol liibubtiuuls of the I luted Ft-los. Tho House claimed no such thing. they simply claimed that tho Hou.-e had power to Impeach and the Seuate lo try every ollie.al ciuno commuted by a civil offlocr ii u< in the discretion ol tbo House, ol coui-c. whether they would prose cute ail oihcial otlciicos before the Senate or not, and it was undoubtedly the purpose ol the trainers of tins constitution that this proceeding should lio confined io ftueu conspicuous ca^i-s only as Irotu their Character deserved judgment lioiu ?.< nigh a tribunal. Mr. Loss lino, ol New \ork, asked 11 tlio respondent Were Couvicted on the indictment now said to be pend ing against him in a judicial c .urt, finder section 1,??1 ol l be Revised Statutes, Which jiro \ido<l that any olliier coiiviclcd should be dt qiialiiied Irom hoidiug oiiiee hereafter, could that Court prenouuee that judgtucm ii|i..iu>t him if meannmu the Senate pronounced the time Judgment: or, should the Court ursi pionouuce Juugmeni, what Would be tlio efloct ol that ou the dclei unnaliou ol tho Senate ? iCIIUVXNT AMU KXKVITIOM WSTIXCT.

RAILWAY FREIGHT RATES. OllUS SHirrERB ON TIIE INTEItKHTa INVOLVED IN THK DISPUTE Of TUB BlVAi. liOADlj?IN CBEAMED BECBIPTB OF GBAIN? EXI'EBT TA BUI, AC. Tho freight question remains the uppermost topic of discussion among railroad men, merchants and ocean J shipper*, and thu Hi.kai.o bus from day to day afforded j a fattblul relies of tho opinions of those classes most . allected by thu great struggle lor supremacy umong the great carrying corporations. It must bo admitted that to fur the j-yuipaihy of tho nterchauts in this section seems to be wub the New York Central management in Its light with the great rival corporations, which uro alleged by orory trick and device to have bought to divert trade from this metropolis lo other seaboard cities. The managers of the great network of roada diverging from ibis city, as shown In theso columns, j havo lrom time to time endeavored to establish I und maintain ratus of traight between tho Kast und tho Wost which would be equitablo between all ronuerned, which would not unduly tax ' tho producer or shipper, and would at tho sauio time ultord a lair profit to the carrier; but, as often as tlicro bus been a ??compact" like that at Saratoga, or a "pool" like that at Chicago, or a "conference agree ment" like that at the St. Nicholas Hotel, Just so olton I has there beeu "cutting under," uud an uufair distribu tion of busiuess to llaitimore and Philadelphia at tho expense of New York, until Mr. Yunderbtlt and his co directors wero obliged to exereisc u j.ower which has thrown iuto confusiou tho whole railroad freighting in. tercsls ol' tho country. No matter what tho dirtcusniou* ol detail are between Messrs. Scott, Jewctt, Garrett und others whose internets coincide with theiu on the one side uud tho Yanderbilts ou the other, the isoue I sharply defined Is whether llaitimore or Philadelphia ' shall wrest the commercial supremacy frotn Now York, ; or whether tho Now York L'etitrul Ituilroad, Willi its I connections, which N'ew York has doun so much to foster and build, shall uso its great advantages of line, grade and equipment to decide tlio context without de leri iuir to the wishes or consulting tho interests ol its rivuls. Central has uireudy decided and New York ap plauds. lu order to elicit tho lullest expression from all j classes of merchants us to tho oUcct ol the continued "cutting'' of freight rules ou business a llruAU) re porter yesterduy visited tho otlicu of David Dows & Co., Na -0 South street, lor uu expression of , opinion on tho situation. Thistlrni is perhaps as largely engaged In tlio transportation and shipment of graiu j as any other in tho United Stutes. Mr. Dows was ab sent, but his partner said in effect:?"The change j ol tlio low rates ol'freight lrt.m tho West was directly ' observublo in the largr receipts ol grain iu this city? i receipts which wero constantly increasing. Tho action < of the Central road In cutting loose from a combina tion which was antagonistic to Now Yoric lutorosts was | certainly commeudubie, aud must receive tlio support : of all nicrcimutf. As to the steamers now loaded U.N Tim I'PPKK LAKKS WITH CHAIN, 1 which was awaiting transportation to the seaboard, It : wits presumed thai the Ireights were slreudv agreed ' upon wilh the railroads, otherwise the shippers would i be simply gambling iu grain. If they simulated on I Ireights out there tncy might Just as well soli or luiy I options ' A business lunii. acting on business princi ples, will, beloro las loads his groin on vessels, j ngree with the railroad lor its transportation.

The i owners ol empty vessels waiting to be loaded on tlio lakes, however, were anxiously watching llic Ireight j question, and uccordiug to the term* thev ean tnako ! with the roads will they load their vessel* or Jet them swing idly at uuclior. As to ockan KHuiaurs, J undoubtedly there has beet more Inquiry within the l pasl week because ol an additional export demand. Owing to many steamers having been withdrawn Irom - service and ibu diversion of others to lorclgn ports ! ocean Ircighis vrero not abundant. They can get good cargoes out but bring scarcely anything back. Alto ! gether, we liopclully look lor a better business irom ? ibis delormiued action on the part of tlio Sew York . Central Kail road. As to the 'special rates' made bv the company we uro not at present lully Informed, but I it we wanted to contract lor 1,000 or 2,000 cars next ; month wo could doubtless make gM>d terms." Messrs. Jesse Uoyt A: Co., a house of ancient good . standing, No. 19 South street, was next visited. Ono ol iho partners told the writer thut New York could oo j congratulated on the increased arrival ol grain at this j i* ru It would certainly improve business. The ex poil demand for grain Hud already increased, and ocean ! Ireights had sightly advauced. ' As to the ipiurrcl bo Uvieu the great truuk Hues, be has no opinion to ex press except that bo thought every New York merchant should hold up the hands ol the manager! ol the C?u i tral road lor their determined stand against the ug. I gressious ol the rival companies, who w ished to build up Uaiumore aud Philadelphia to Hie delrnnurl ol tbo I commerce ol New York. Why Erie had struck hands with the lialtitiiore und Ohio and PenusylvanU rati roads was not a conundrum to him. CKNTIi.lL. AXU KKIK WKRK ALWAYS KIVALH, | and ever since the rt'gim* of Jay (iould in the latter company there hud boon determined hostility between the two corporations, so it was perhaps but natural that ' Erie should welcome any alliance by which it could hope to cripple the New York Central. A prominent shlptroker In William street was called I ui>on, but he said, that a* yet ho saw no signs ol ro- j turning activity Iu business growing out ol the new railroad rates, yet be thought the tendency was to such i improvement. ShNTISKSfT OF THK I'ROUICK KXCIIA.NUK Mr. S. 11. (iraut, tbo Secrotaiy ol the l'roduce Ex change, Paid the merchants generally, who are con nected with tlioir organization, soomed to think the lower rales would stimulate busiucs.s. and should especially create a larger export demand for grain but the war seemed to bear especially upon tbo cuoal men who havo had to coulend against all sorts of 111 luck lor two years. The writer was men referred to M r. Walker the statistician ol the l'toduce Exchange, lor facts and figures bearing on the great question, which had not beioro been given to the general public in relation to tbe movctneniof grain, kc. ' Mr. Walker was louud at No 38 Whitehall street aud Cheerfully communicated the following information:? "Tlio 1'iiciflc coast, includtug California and Oregon w ill not havo much wheat lor export boloru the middle ol July, aud although this may not seem to boar imme diately upou the present froiglil question, still it has a reference to tbo grcnt export problem with which wo are all concerned. I may also moulion, rt, p,:*,ant that the Hussion wheat crop in 1875 was a bad one aud her surplus in 1S76 Is ?o small that this will he among Jier years of minimum export. The extent of the sur plus Of our own country is not yet determinable. The winter wheat regions may require considerable spring wheat to bridge over their dehciency, aud now hero '? comes iu the Ireight question as to the loiuro of values ' and it is to bo coustderod in ?' A OUKAT NATIONAL, ICOXOMIC SKNSK. If Ireight rates continue low to iho seaboard and there should bo poor crops abroad an export de mand would spring up, which would probably cilect u ! change in the w hole outlook of business. The question ol v.ar has and will have some lulluouce, more or less on all tbo grain marts of the world.

It was to bo regretted that yesterday was not M lectod for tho regatta of ono of tho numerous cluba who make their boadquartors at tho Prospect Park lako, tor a more dosirublo ono (or tho sailing of th* tiny cralt could not have been wished. A large num ber ol the ow ners of tbo tiny craft look advantago ol tbo mild woather and brisk south wind and were at th? lako with their boats, pacing away tho afternoon la scrub races, which seemed to amuso and Interest them to lliclr hearts' content.

Brasher, which has undergone considerable al terations since her trial a wock ago and which baa beeu improved accordingly; the Florence, Captain Jenck, recently built by Coorgo Dayton: the Little Uat, Captaiu G. Hraistod; tho Kobert Center, Captain Boss Collins; tho Comet and tho Juno. Tliore was one very pretty and exciting scratch lietween tbo sloop Lo Bay adore and the schooner Florence, the Interest id which was enhancod bv the fact that both boats are new, and us yet neither ha* had a fair clianco to test Its merit*, iho La B i.vadero is the lar^obt sloop thai sails on tho lake. She atd bor opponent each showed good qualities. The ltoticrt Contor la alao a now boat, and bor worlc yesterday rightly led her owner to ex poet from her achievement* of no moan nature. The well known Comet was oti hand as usual, and the Little (?at ??showed up in good order.'* Several hundred peo ple congregated about tho lako and enjoyed the sport.
