BELKNAP. The Articles of Impeachment Again Before the Senate. HIOH 01 THE JUnCTIOH flUBTlOI. Technical Questions Intersposed by Defendant's Counsel. ANOTHER PLEA FOR DELAY. Wmwttoii, Jim 1, UTI At ?m o'otock Mij legislative buiiMH was ana. pended and the Btoii* resumed the consideration of tba articles of impeacniaeat against William W. Belknap, late Secretary of War. Tbe accused, with Mr. Carpenter, of bis counsel, being prevent, aa well u I! ? managers oa the part of tbe House of Representatives, proclamation waa msils by tbe Sergeant-at-Arms ta tbe usual lorm. and lbs Journal of tbs session ol Monday last waa read. The President prv tem. then announced the decision of ths Senate on the question of Jurisdiction as fol* lows:? DICIMOS or THS SIN ATS. It Is ordered by tho Senate, aitting for tbe trial of tbe arnclea ol impeacbmentnrelerred by tbe House of Representatives against W. W. Belknap, late Secretary ot War, that the demurrer ol said William W. Beikoap to the replication of the House of Representa tives to the plea to tbe Jurisdiction filed by said Belknsp be and tbe same hereby Is overruled. And it being tbo opinion ol the senate that aaid p ea is insufficient in law und that saiu articles of impeach ?tent are aufflcient In law It is therefore fnrtber ordered and adjudged that said plea be and tho same is hereby overruled and held for naught. Mr. Whytb, ol Maryland, submitted the following:? Ordered, That W. W. Belknap Is hereby ordered to plead further or answer artioles of impeachment within ten days irom this date. ABocnmrr or mr. a&anurrn. Mr. Cabfsxtbk, ot counsel for the aocuaed, said he regarded tho order submitted by the Senator from Maryland as in tbe naturo of a mandamus. This court gave counsol two days to prepare tor the argument of a question which It bad taken tbe court three weeks to decide^ Considering the infallibility of tbe Senate, like all Judicial tribunals, and that they muet know all law, ?nd that counsel only knew a little, he had no doubt the court would give counsel a little time for reflection. Tbe order Just read by tbo President pro tem., and entered upon tbo record as tbo judgment, was so unlike any order which would be entered by a court of law tbat be was at a lots to know what to do. One ol bis associates (Mr. Blsir) was necessnriiy sbBect Irom the city and the other (Judge Black) was necessarily on bis back wnh rheumatism und could not get uo, and ho (Mr. Carpenter) desired to have time to consult ihem. He then commented on ibe ord-T overruling the plea as to Jurisdiction and sa'd it was a good order tor the Senate but not a good order for a court, and nt tbo proper time he would claim that it "-as n?t valid, not having been concurred In by tho constitutional majority of two-thirds, and therefore it could not hurt the defence; Mr. Carpen ter then argued that the accused could now demur to the articles of impeachment, although his plea to the Jurisdiction had beeu overruled, utid said It it was him *ell who was ou trial ho would open his mouth to plead agalt, but would stand upon tho law, without any lurtber pleadiugs, und let the honorable managers move lor Judgment. Wbon ihey moved lor Judgment be would declare he was ready lor it. No power ver'ed in tbe Senate to order the defenco to do anything more. Tho defence had been sum moned here and had pleaded. Tlicy could Bland on plcis already filed. 01 course, there waa no court to review tbe findiuns of this court; its Jurisdiction was IliyU. But tbo defenco bad a right to stop here, snd an order ol the Sonate ordering them to plead further eould not bo valid, and lio protested against it being mnJe. He desired to contuft with hi* colleagues ss to whether tncy would ask permission to plead any more or whether tbey would stop at the point now reached. Ho claimed tnat tho defence, instead ol answering the articles of impeachment, had the right to demur to mem. Tbe second time he c*me tn the Senate chamber to plead id this case he came witb a demurrer to the arti cle! of impeachment In bin pocket bat preferred to plead aa to Jurisdiction. At the proper time he woald call the aitentiaii of the Senate to the fact that no crime was let forth In any one ol these articles. The facta as slated in those articles, if so slatod in an In dlctment before a court of law. would result In it beinc qusahed. The flrsi question was ax to whether the arti cles of impeachment were aultlclent and the nest m to whether i her wero true. The mere rhetoric of the articles would not do. The thing uacll and every clement which constituted the high crime mutt be set out as ? fact. He contended that the articles of impeachment would uot stand the test which the court ol law wouid apply to them. He assumed that the Senate would vacate so much of the order adopted on Mouday kh assumes that the articles ol impcacbment are sufficient in law. He (Mr. Car penter) asserted, as a lawyer, his honest bolief that not one of the articles wouid stand the test put upon them by tho court ol law, snd he wan entitled to be benrd upon this question before the Senate said they wero sufficient, it would be policy for the defendant to let the Judgment come with the certainty lie hail that he would be acquitted. Th"se Senators who be lieved the senate bad no jurisdiction to try the accused must voio "not guilty" on the Una! Judgment, TBI ONLY RISK the defendant would run by slopping here would be that some senator who thought tbero was no Juris diction might chango hut mind, ,bui he (Carpenter) saaumtd thai the opinion of Senators wouid not bs saslly changed. He thought that any Senator r>rJudge, who believed ho had not jurisdiction In a cue, would hold to the opinion that he had no right to convict. The Sonata had derided that Iho trial must go on, but it was lor his cltont to say whether bo would stand upon his legal rigbia, or whether he would go tbrou^j the trial ou the mat tern ol lact set lorth in the articles ol Impeachment Counsel ought to htvo reasonabio time for solemn reflection. They wan tod It anJ asked for it. ARUCMXXT OK MANAUKR LORD. Manager Lt>n>. aid the plea of the drfendant had been overruled and the articles or impeachment were held to be sufficient. He apprehended that tbe Senalo in making the order understood ail the tacts. Tbe mana gers did not feel called upon to diacuss the order until some motion was made to chango it, or question raised by counsel for the delence thai a two-thirds vote was secoetary on the question of Jurisdiction and that the Senators who voted against Jurisdiction must vote "not guilty" on tho .final question. The managers would at the proper time iiave something to say. They would show that tbe wbolo practice ol courts of Impeachment bad been in contradiction of tbat argu ment. The defendant had not put in bis answer to the articles, and all tbe managers could do was to move to proceed to trial. Tbe counsel for the defence now pro posed another dilatory plea. Here stood tms defendant accused of high crimes, and by a dilatory plea bad oc cupied all tbe timo ol tbe Court Now, when the Court held his plea amounted to naught and tbe articles of Im peachment were sufficient, learned counsel wanted the Court to go back and vacate a part of its order. It would be a most extraordinary proceeding in the judg ment of tbe managers for the Court to open tbe pro ceedings again Instead of compelling the defendant to go to trial. MR. M MAHAJl'a AROt'MRHT. Mr. Manager McMamas argued thai the counsel for the defence bad Invited the ruling of tbe Senato in the very shape It was given and read iron the argument of Mr. Carpenter on tne question of jurisdiction to show that be contended tben that tbe Senato must make such ruling in the case. It took Jurisdiction. Mr. Cart<enter rose to reply. Mr. TnvRMA* said be would like to know what the rule ol tbe Senate was in regard to discussion. He did not think there should be unlimited discussion by the counsel and managers upon every order submitted by a Senator. In his judgment It was all wrong Tbe CiiAiR replied tbat the discission bad been al towed under tbe rule al!ow:ng one hour to eaoh side. RCM.Y or MR. CARMRTBR. Mr. CARriXTBR said tho Honorable Managers had argued that this court wsn not bound by rules ol practice. He (Carpenter) thought every rule in force in a ertmlnsl court had been derived trom experience and was binding here as much as in any court. He claimod that In bis former argument be bad never tlluded to tbe sufficiency ol the articles of impeach aient and be denied tbat the articles could be declared lufllcieai by ihe-Seaaie in delermiuing the quostion ?f Jurisdiction. He knew how ibe senate was pressed By legislative business, and a short time ago he sought lo relieve that pressure by moving to have tbe trial eontlnue until September next, but the senate unani mously re. used to grant tuo motion, t he Senate bad mid tbe trial mubt go on, but they were all honorable men, and certainly the/ meant to give the counaei a cbauce to discuss 'all questions freely. He asked tbat tbe counsel be allowed until Mon day next to determine what tbey would do' They could by tbat time determine whether they would aak to have the order vacated liecause it bad uot been passed by tbe constitutional two-thirds vote, or wnether they would demur to tne articles of Impeach ment. Aa one of his colleagues was out ol towu aud the other was sick In bed ho thought tho request was lot unreasonable. Mr. Wright, of Iowa, moved that the Senate, sitting as a court of impeachment, adjourn until Monday next, at one o'clock P. M. Mr. Kbrmam, of New York, moved an amendment as follow*:? ??And tbat in default of aa aaswsr within ten days by tbe respondent to tbe articles of Impeachment tne trial sbali proceed aa on a plea of not guilty. '? Mr. Cabpb?tbs said ho hoped ibe .Senator offering that amendment did not mean to exclude the delence Iron demurring lo tbe articles of impeachment. Manager Lord said the prosecution hat a large num her ol witneases in attendanoo during tbia protracted period, and lie hoped some time would be fixed lor the iria.eo ibct the wliaoeses might ?e alio Wed lo go home and be directed to return at tbe time fixed. Mr. Vrobmax said ha hoped that J?y unanimous con sent lbs motions submitted by the Senators trom town u< New York (Messrs Wright aad Itnii) wnM be discoaeed in open session. Mr. lovnriu nM ha Ml mIM opoa i* aak that tbe rale t? eaioreed.

The n-A? runlaM the Sea a tar that debate waa out of order. Mr. tMUUI submitted the following as a aubetitote tar tbe motion of Mr. Wright:? ??Ordered that tbirCuurt adjourn until Tuesday next, aad in the meantime the defendant hare tea re to plead aaiwer or demur." Mr. Kwii withdrew hie amendment aad aooaplid that ogerad by Mr. Sherman. The Cun ruled that tba motion or Mr. Bhei n waa a diatiaet proposition aad could not bo rated uloo aa an amendment to tbat of Mr. Wright. Mr. Wright I ben modified hie motion ao that the Senate sitting aa a aourt or impeaehmoat adjourn until Tuesday next, at one o'clock, instead ol Monday, and It waa agreed to.

WaaaixoTOK, June 1, 1878. The Hotfaa to-day proceed ea to coo aider the bill to promote the efficiency of the army, to provide (or ita gradual redaction and to consolidate certain el Ita staff departments. Mr. Sitxixa, (rep.) of 8. 01, offered aa amendment providing In the enltatment or merging of enllated men Into other organisations no distinction shall be made oa account of race or oolor. Mr. Raeoall, (dem.) or Pa., objected. Mr. Macesy, (Ind.) of S. C., moved to amend by striking ont the section which provides for the repeal ing of the law which requires tbat the enllated men of oerialn regiment! shall be colored men. Mr. O'Bniss, (dem.) of Md., objected. Mr. Macxkt said that aa Ins amendment waa ob jected to tbe practical effect ot th < bill would be to dis continue the enltatment of colored men In the army nntll another war broke ont It was an tndireet way of getting rid or the eolored troops, Mr. Hvuntrr, (rep.) of 111., offered ? substitute for the bill, directing the President to appoint a commis sion of seven officers ol tbe army of distinguished ser vice and knowledge, who shall report to the President their oplniona ol the best method of reorganising the army, and especially on tbe best method ot reor ganising the staff department, with a view to eeonomy and efficiency. erases or its. scslsct. He aald tbat ever aince tbe organisation of the army there bad been those who deaireil to cripple ita effi ciency aad to overthrow the great sentiment ol honor for political effect, He thought tbat II tbe army must be reduced through a mistaken idea of economy tbe reduction ougbt to tall on the arttllqry force, which is largely disproportionate to the sise of tbe army, but not on the imaniry ?nd cavalry.* The striking down ol tboae historical regiments was the striking down of the sentiuieot of honor ubich is so dear to every sol. dler. He called attention to the (act tbat one law pro posed to be repealed by ibis act was one providing tbat no pcrnon who bad served in the Confederate service should be appointed to the array ol tho United States. That claose bad boen inserted becauso a similar act bad been passed by the Bouse. In conclusion he quoted from tbe testimony of General Hancock to tbe effect that one of the things which most contributes to tbe efliclency of tbe mtlitary.organlsatlon is the perma nency ol the officers. Mr. Banking, (deiri.) ol Ohio, chairman ol tbe Military Committee, spoke In advocacy ol tbe bill. He waa uoabio to Bee ia tbe bill anything but what demanded of men on both sides of the House an honest, just aud fall oonalderation, tn order that the army might be re organised; In order that it might ho made efficient, tbat the regiments might ho strengthened and that the shame and dlcgracewhiob have been broughton tbe army by its late administration aud bead mtgbt bo pot a stop to. He disagreed with the gentleman from Illinois (Mr. Hurlbut) in saying that attacks were made on the army tor political purpose*. Wben be aaw the gentle man standing hero and attacking a bill which prevents any promotlou in tho army hereafter, save Irom tho lines, he could not but tee in him a gentleman who was trying to get up a political issne to defeat a bill before a Presidential election. He quoted a resolution of the Ohio Kepubiloan Convention in 1889 approving the de termination of Congress to retrench expenditures in the government, and urging on tbe national Congress the necessity of a reduction of tbe army and navy. An objection bad been made by tbo gentleman Irom Illinois tbat this was going to let tbe Conlederate soldiers como into tbo army. And wbv notf Wero they not allowed on the floor of tbo House? Wero tbe people of tbe North so embittered against tbs South that tbey could not forgive the Southern men wbo desired to come back lo serve the old flag? in relerehce to tbe clause repealing the law providing that two regiments shall be composed exclusively of colored men. he said it wiped out an insult against every colorod man in the land. Mr. Hurlbut's substitute was then rejected?yeas 88, nays Hi. Tbe bill was then^assed?yeas 120, nays 82. CANADIAN TRADE AMD FINANCE. INCBE1SE Of THE DOMINION DEBT?INTERNAL IMFBOYEMENTB AND IMMIQBATIOK. Tobosto, Obi, June 1, 1874 Sir Alexander Gait delivered an address in Neslo Ball last night to a large audlonce OB the commercial and financial condition ot the Dominion. He aitribu ted the present depreeaion to extravagance, govern mental and personal, and abowed tbat the tonaage of the Dominion haa actually fallen off alnoe 1807; while daring tho last four years the imports exceeded the ex ports by $140,030,000. He said Mr. Cartwrigbt's last ostlmate or revenue would not be realised, and pointed out taat the public debt had oeea increased $63,000 000 under the confederation system. He recommended tbat no further money be expended on the canals, ex cept it might be under a Joint arrangemont with the Dulled States. He condemned the expenditure of money on the Georgian Bay branch, and on the rail way between take Superior and Fort Harry, and rec ommended reaching tho Northwest by the way of Pombtna, making a railway only to further, or, It might be, immediately to precede settlements In the prairie country. He strongly favored a vigorous Im migration policy. Ho said protection was not neces sary or desirable in a country of 4,000,000 of people, but be would impose special duties upon srtiolea enter ing from the United Htatea, which bad been so illiberal la their dealings with Canada. Ho pointed out tho ad vantages of re lining augar in Canada. SALE OP PAINTINGS. The following Is the result of tbe artists* sale or paintings at Miner's Art Gallery last evening.

An artesian wall, which has already attained n depth of ssore than 1,300 feet, is being sank by tho proprie tor* of an oxtoasive lager beer brewery noar the Thirty-third precinct police station, at Morrleaula.

Louis meu thai much of the reveuae robbing w?s done in Brooklyn. This led the writer to make inquiry in official circles, in the office of Collector Kreeland, and the result, published in tbo HsnALi> at the umo. was that so strict Lad been the inspection of lute years, aud so close was the surveil lance exercised at the present time, that it would be utter'y Impossible to Udfraud the Revenue Department In the manufacture of spirits to sny considerable ex tent.

Thus far everything has been lound cor rect Tho amuunt alleged to have boen paid as a bribe to threo men waa too much money, the Collector thought, and no Brooklyn distiller could afford to pay It.

It would be Impossible, he said, to run any length of time with the connivence of two deputy assessors.

Mr. William D.

"This whole matter," aald Deputy Marshal De Clue, "comes, in my Judgment, from tho office of the Supervisor of Internal Revenue In Mew York.

Laat year It was determined by the Grand Com mandery of Pennsylvania, in view of the Important poaltion Philadelphia was about to aaaurne aa the scone of the Centennial Kxliib.tion, to cclebrate the annual reunion with the most elaborate ceremonies. It was resolved to have the must' imposing turn out of lbs Order ever before bad here, and to Invite not only the commanderles of tbe oountry bat lbo?e of foreign nations as welL Tbe idea was no looner broached iban tbe Grand Commanderri assisted by the subordinate com ma nderiea of tbe Slate, began the work of arranging for tbe display. Tbe Philadelphia coinniandcrie* went into the work with especial enthnajaam. Tbe s< reel display ol to-day bos lully proved tbe auccess ol their endeavor, although tbe numbers of visiting knights present, large as it was, would have been still larger had not the solflsbues and greed of Hie railroad compunles In refusing to mako the anticipated and promised reductions to Centennial visitors kopl away msny of those from far distant sections. For the past three days tbe city lias been flooded with sir knights from other parts, and thousands of people who have accompanied tbe subordinate com. munderles to witness the ceremonies Incident to the reunion. Philadelphia, with her centennial reoord, of which she is very proud, with ber Centennial Exhibition and with her cetiUnmal flags waving from every public Institution and private residence, is eminently tilted for these Masonic events, and extending, as sue does in her accustomed good grace, the hospitalities o! tbe city to tho visiting femplsrs, tbe festivities of tbe dsy will not socfa bo lorgottun. Since lust evening tbe streets of Philadelphia have becti crowded as ibey never wero uelore with moving throngs ot knights in military uniform, ladies and gen tlemeu in civilian attire and all the motley personages ol a oily crowd. Bauds ot .music by the doseu, accom pany ing the visiting comtnandcrics, paraded the stroets, making the sir Joylul witb stirring stratus, occasion ally pausing lo compliment by a serenade some head quarter* ol their Orucr or some nolablo knigbi. Brill iant with llatts and decorations, bright with calcium lights, vocal with martial music, tbe streets oi this staid cily surely never presented such a sight as they have witnessed last night and to-day, <or tbe spectacle of to-day, without tbe calcium lights and illuminations, was a still mors Impresslvo military pigeant. roKxixo Tim raocicssiox As early as eight o'clock this morning the various commanderles began to assemble ant assume ibe places sssigned them, preparatory lo Joining iu tbe line.

Along Broad siroei, on east and west sides, were tbe various subordinate commandcries. Tbe grand commandcrles of Connecti cut, Oblo, Kentncky and Maine were on thecast sl<io of Broad, south ol Spruce; grand coinmandorlos ol Indi ans, Texas and Tennessee, west side of the street; Grand Commandery ot New Jersey, north sid*ot Piue, cast of Broud; grand oommanderies of Georgis.

From eight o'clock till nine thero was a stream of knights passing to and fro to lako their positions, and as tuey.passed i hose already assembled on the street they were saluted, while the crowd vainly endeavored to securo places as near the curb as possible, past which line stalwart mlnlona of tho law forbade them trespsssing. Iben housetops, windows, verandas-and awning posts were resorted to, which soon Uccanio so crowded with mon and boys that the/ were often in danger of falling. As the various commanderles marched and oountermarobed they were greeted wltn enthusiastic applause and waving of handkerchiefs by those who had been fortunate enough to secure ele vated positions The appearance of the Marine Band, ol Washington, was a signal lor aa outburst of ap plause. As they marched down tbo street, their gala uniforms and instruments shining resplendent in lbs rays of tbe morning sun, and followed by Washing ton Commandery, the soens presented was a grand one. QrainiU's Band was also greoted with applause. Tbo Northwestsrn Commandery, of Meodville, had with them a hand which attracted oonsldersble atten tion from tbe beauty of their uniform.
