BELKNAP. The Articles of Impeachment Again Before the Senate. IfflOH OH THE JURISDICTION (MTION. Technical Questions Intersposed by Defendant's Counsel. ANOTHER PLEA FOR DELAY. Wasnmotox, Jan* 1, 1871 At one o'clock to-dsv legislative business was sus pended and the Senate resumed tbe consideration of the article* of lmpeacmnent against William W. Belknap, Into Seoretary of War. The accused, with Mr. Carpenter, of bla counsel, being present, as well aa tt e managers on tbe part of the House of Representatives, proclamation waa ma le by tbe Sergeant-at-Arms in ibe usual form, and lbs Journal of tbo session ot Monday last was read. The President pro ten. then announced tbe decision of the 8enate on tbe question of jurisdiction aa fol> lows:? DKCIMOX or TUB 8KNATB. It Is ordered bjr tbo Senate, sitting for tbe trial of the articles ol impeachment prcierreil by tbe House of Representatives aguins'. W. tV. Belknap, late Secretary ol War, that the demurrer ol said Willifim W. Beiknap to tbe replication of the House of Representa tives to tbe pie* to tbe Jurisdiction Hied bv said Belknap be and tbo same hereby la overruled. And it being ibo opinion ol the senate that said p ea ia insufficient in law und that saiu articles of impeach >??>i are sufflcient in law? * It is therefore further ordered and adjudged that said plea be and the same is beroby overruled and held for naught. Mr. Whyt?, ol Maryland, submitted the following:? Ordered, That W. W. Belknap is borebv ordered to plead furth?r or answer articles of Impeachment within ten days irom this date. ARBCMnXT or MR. CARPKNTKR. Mr. CiiriNTn, ol counsel for tbo accused, said be regarded tbo order submitted by the Senator from Maryland as in the naturo of a mundaiuus. This court gavo counsol two days to prepare lor 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 must know all law, snd that counsel only knew a little, ho bad no doubt the court would give counsel a little time for reflection. The order Just read by tho President pro tern., and entered upon tbo record as tbo judgment, waa so unlike any order which would be entered bv a court of law that be was at a lots to know what to do. One of bis associates (Mr. Blair) waa necessarily absent Irom the city nnd tbe other (Judge Black) was necessarily on his back wnh rheumatism imd could not get ud, and ho (Mr. Carpenter) desired to nave time to consult them. He then commented on tbelord- r overruling tbo plea as to jurisdiction and aa>d it was a good order lor the Senate but not a good order for a court, and at tbe proper time be would claim thai it *'.*08 not valid, not having been coucurrc'i In by tho constitutional majority ol two-thirds and therefore it could not hurt tbe defence. Mr. Carpen ter then argued that the accused could now demur to Ibe articles of impeachment, although bis plea to the Jurisdicilon bad been overruled, nud said if it was hlm rell who was ou trial lie would never open his mouth to plead again, but would siand upon the law without any lurtber pleadiugs. aud let the honorablo managers move for judgment. When they moved lor judgment he would declare he was ready for it. No power vested in tbe Senute to order the defenco to do anything more. The defence had beeu sum moned here und had pleaded. They could stand on plcis already filed. Of course, there was no court to review the flnduixs of this court; its jurisdiction was tiHal. But tbo defenco bad a right to stop here and an order ol the Senate ordering them to plead further could not be valid, and lie protested against It beinir made. He desired to consult with bU colleagues as to whether tne.v would ask permission to plead any more or whether they would slop at the point now reached Ho claimed mat tho defence, instead ol answering the articles of impeachment, had the right to demur to tuetn. The second time be came In tbe Senate chamber to plead in this case lie came with a demurrer to tbe ortl cle* or impeachment in his pocket but preferred to plead as to Jurisdiction. At the proper timo he would cal. tbo attcnti?ii of the Senate to the fact thut no crirao was set forth In any one ol these articles, tho facts as stated in those articles, If so slated in an in dictment before a court of law. would result in it beinc quashed. Tho flrsv question was as to whether tbe art! cles of impeachment were sulliclcnt und tho next as to whether they wero true. The mere rhetoric ol tho articles would not do. The thing uscit and every element which conctituted the high crime must be set out as a fact. He contended that the articles of impeachment would uolstaudtlie test which tbe court ol law wouid apply to ibem. He assumed that the Senate would vacate so much of tho order adopted on Monday as assumes that the article* ol impeachment are sufficient In law. He (Mr. Car penter) asaeried, as a lawyer, his honest bollef that not one ol the articles would stand ihe test pat upon them by tho court of law, and he waa entitled to bo heard npon this question before the Senate said they wero sufficient. It would bo policy for the defendant to lot the judgment come with the certainty he hail that he would be acquitted. Th-se Senators who be lieved tbe Senate bad no jurisdiction to try the accused mast Toto "not guilty" on tbo Una! judgment. Till ONLY RISK Ihe defendant would run by stopping here would be that some Senator wbo thought there was no juris diction might chango his mind, but ho (Carpenter) sssumtd that the opinion of Senators would not ha easily changed. He thought that any Senator ^r Juilee who bcliovcd bo had not jurisdiction in i caso, would hold to the opinion that he bad no right to convict The Senate had decided that tho trial -nusi go on, but it waa lor his cliont to sav whether ho would stand upon bis legai righia or whether he wo-?M go throng tho trial ou the mat ters ol fact set forth in the articles of impeachment. Counsel ought to h'-vo reasonably time for solemn reflection, fhev wanted it an.l asked lor It. ARumurr or max auk a uird Manager Loftn aid tbe plea of ibe defendant had been overruled and tbe articles of Impeacbtncni were held to be sufficient, lie upprehended that tbe Sonato in making the order understood ail tbo facte. Tbe mana gers did not leel called upon to discuss the order until aonio motion was made to change It, or question raised bv counsel for the defence that a iwo.thirds vote waa necoasarv on the question of jurisdiction and that the Senator* who voted against Jurisdiction mast vote -'not guilty" on tbo final question. The managers would at the pro|>er time nave something to ?ay. Tbey would show tnat tbo wbolo practice ol courta of Impeachment bad beon in contradiction of that argu meet. The defendant had not put in bis answer to tbe articles, and all tbe managers could do waa to movo to proceed to trial. The 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 tho timo ol tbe Court. Now, when the Court held his plea amounted to naught and the article* of Im peachment were sufficient, learned counsel wanted the Court to go back and vacate a part ot its order. It wr>uld boa most extraordinary procoed;ng in the judg ment of the manager* for the Court to open tbe pro ceedings again Instead of compelling tbe defendant to go to trial. MIL M MAHAJf'S AHOCMMT. Mr. Manager McMaha* argued that tbe counsel for the defence bed invited the ruling of tho Senato in the very sbape it wa* given and read irom tbe argument of Mr. Carpenter on the question of jurisdiction to show that be contended then that tbo Senate must makoauch ruling in tbo case. It took Jurisdiction. Mr. Cartenier rose to replv. Mr. int'RMAM said be would like to know what the rule of the Senato waa in regard to ducussion. He did not think there ihould be unlimited discussion by tbe counsel sad managers upon every order submitted by a Senator. In hi* judgment It was all wrong The Chair replied that the discission had been al lowed under the rule al!ow:ng one hour to each side. RtrLY or MR. rARPCRTBR. Mr. Carpixtrh said the Honorable Managers bad argued that this court was not hound by rules ol practice. He (Carpenter) thought every rule in force in ? criminal court bad been derived Irom experience aud was binding bore aa much aa in any court. He claimod that in hta former argument ho had never tlluded to tbe sufficiency of the article* of impeacb aienL and be denied that the article* could be deciarod ?ufflcicnt by theSenato in determining tbe question ?f Jurisdiction. He knew boW ibe Senate wa* pressed ?y legislative basinesa, and a short time ago lie sought to relieve that preasure by moving to bavo tbe trial continue until September nexi. but the "enate unnni 5?.?/ re,Mod to prant tho motion. Ibe Senate ha I ?aid the trial must go on, but they were all honorable men, and certainly tber meant to give the counsel a ctiauce to discuss all questions freely. He ?aked that tho connsel be allowed until Mon day next to determine what they would do ? They could by tbat time determine wbetber they w ouid aak to have the order vacated l>ecause it had uot ' 'I1* con*tltutional two-thirds vote, or *5?, 1?'?l,e3r would demur to tne articles of impcach Shi <*h ?f *'? colleagues was out or town and Lot unreason,b* ho lhoo*hl ,ho r?1u"1 was it! l0W^ mored lh*? the Senate, sitting as a court ol Impeachment, adjourn until Monday next, at one o'clock KM.

Washikotob. Jane l, 1870. Tbe HoifBe to-day proceedeu to conaider tho bill to promoto tbe efficiency of iho army, to provide for ita gradual redaction and to oonsohdate certain ol ita Blair departments. Mr. Small*, (rep.) of 8. C., offered an amendment providing in tbe enliatmont or merging of enlisted men ioto other organisations no distinction shall bo made on account of race or color. Mr. Randall, (detn.) of Pa., objected. Mr. Mackjey, (Ind.) of & C., moved to amend by striking ont the section which provides lor tho repeal ing of the law which requires that (he enlisted men of certain rcglmentl shall bo colorcd mm. Mr. O'Brikjc, (Jem.) of Md., objected. Mr. Mackky said that as Ins amendment was ob jected to toe practical effect ol Ik < bill would be to dis continue the enlls'tment of colored men In tbe army until another war broke oat It was an Indirect way of getting rid of the oolored troops. Mr. Hprlbot, (rep.) of 11L, offered a substitute for tho bill, directing the President to appoint a commis sion of seven officers ol the army of distinguished ser vice and knowledge, who shall report to the President their opinions ol the host method of reorganising the army, and especially on llio best method ol reor ganising the stall' department, with a view to economy and efficiency. SPSSCH or MR. Ill'RLBL'T. He said tbat ever since the organisation of the army there bad been those who desirod to cripple Its effi ciency and to overthrow tho great sentiment ol honor tor political effect. He thought that II the army roust be reduced through a mistaken Idea of economy tho reduotion ought to lall on tbe artillery force, which is lsrgely disproportionate to the sise of ibe army, but not on tbe iniantry ?nd cavalry. ? The striking down ot those historical roelui' nts was the striking down of tbe sentiment of honor which is so dear to every sol dlor. He called nttcntion to the lact that one law pro posed to bo repealed by ibis net was one providing tbat no person who bad served in thu Confederate service should be appointed to the army ol tho United States. Tbat clause had been inserted because a similar act had been passed by tbe House. In conclusion he quoted Irom tbe (estimony of General Hancock to the effect that one ol' tho things which most contributes to tbo efficiency of the mtliiary,organlsut!on is the perma nency ol tbe officers. Mr. Bakmmi, (detri.)ol Ohio, chairman ol the Military Committee, spoke in advocacy ol tbo bill. He was tinablo to see id tbe bill anything but what demanded of men on both sides or the House un honest, just aud full consideration, in order that tho army might be re organised; lu order that it might bo made efficient, that the rcgimonts might bo strengthened and tbat tho shame aud disgrace which have beeu brought on tbo army by Its late administration and bead might bo put a stop to. He disagreed with the gentleman from Illinois (Mr. Hurlbut) in saying tbat attacks were made on tbe army lor political purposes. Wben be saw the gentle tnnn standing hero and attacking a bill which prevents any promoliou in iho army hereafter, save Irom tbo lines, ho could not but see in him a gentleman who was trying to got up a political issue to defeat a bill beforo a Presidential election. He quoted a resolution or tho Ohio Republican Convention in 1800 approving tho de termination of Congress to retrench expenditures in the government, and urging on tlio national Congress the necessity of a reduction of tbe army and navy. An objection had been made by tho gentleman Irom Illinois that this was going to lot tbo Confederate soldiers uomc into tbo army. And why notT Were thoy not allowed on tbe floor of tbo House ? Wero the people of the North so embittered against tbo Soutb that they could not forgive tbo Southern men who desired tocomo back to serve tbe old flag? in relerehce to tbe clause repealing tbe law providing that two regiments shall be composed exclusively ol oolored 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 114. The bill was then .passed?yeas 120, nays 82. CANADIAN TEADE AND FINANCE. INCREASE Or THE DOMINION DEBT?INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS AND IMMIGRATION. Toroxto, Ont., June 1, 18701 Sir Alexander Oalt delivered an address In Musle Ball last night to ? large audionee on tbe commercial and financial condition ot tbe Dominion. He attribu ted the present depression to extravagance, govern mental and personal, and showed that tbe tonnage of the Dominion has actually fallen off since 1807; while during tho last four years tbe imi>orts exceeded the ex ports by $140,030,000. He said Mr. Cart Wright's last ostlmato of revenao would not be realised, and pointed out mat tbe public debt bad Been increased $63,000 000 under tho consideration system. He recommended that no further money be expended on tbe canals, ex cept it mlzbt be under a joint arrangemont with tbe Cuited States. He condemned the expenditure of money on tbe Georgian Bay branch, and on the rail way between Lake Superior and Fort Garry, and rec ommended reaching tho Northwest by the way of Pomhina, making a railway only to lurther, or, It might be, immediately to precede settlements in tbe prairie country. He strongly favored a vigorous im migration policy, lie said protection was not neces sary or deslrablo in a country of 4.000,000 of people, but he would impose special duties upon irticles enter ing from the United States, which bad l>een so illiberal In their dealings with Canada. Ho pointed out the ad vantages of refining sugar in Canada. SALE OF PAINTINGS. Tho following Is the result of tbo artists' Ml* or paintings st Miner's Art Gallery last evening.

An artesian well, which has already attained a depth of more than 1,300 feet, Is being sunk by the proprle> tors of an extensive Isger beer brewery near tbe Thirty-third precinct police station, at Morrisania. Tbe work of boring waa began in November, 187'J, and aas proceeded constantly since, with tbe oxccption of occasional abort Intermissions required for the repair ing and adjustment of machinery, tbe excavating being done by a steam engine working on the waiking-be.iin Cnnctple. Uood water for brewing purposes is the ob ict sought, and this, it was at di?t bolievod, would bo lound not very remote Irom the surface.

Deputy Collectors Daniel Gillon and Samuel Giberaon? are widely known, and huvo long been regarded aa the most emctent rnd trustworthy men In the Firm Internal Revenue Collection district. Yesterduy forenoon District Attorney Tenney was early In bis oHIco und was visited by the uccusod parties aud also by Silas Boone, cashier of the Hrsl Intornal Revenue Collection district. Mr. Boone's Interview was a protracted f ne. As ho was leaving he was ac costed by a roporter who questioned him aa to whether ho had ruud tho statements published reflecting on the parties named above. Mr. Boono's reply was, "There is nothing in It, gentlemen, hothing at all?at least 1 don't believe there is anything In It." District Attor ney Tenney, seeing that several members of tho press were wailing in tho adjoining office. requested his elerlt to close tho door botween them. Altor walling a few moments the reporters entered Mr. Tenney s room only to find that it was vacant Tho District Attorney, dreading, doubtloss, tho batteries of the inquisitorial party, hod retreated by a side door leading to the cor ridor, and thence down stairs and out into the stroet. The District Attorney, in reply to questions, said that be "na>l positively taken no part in any man nor whatever in giving publicity to the articles that had been published. It would be wrong lor him to liavo done sn if ho were to prosecuto these cases. the movement against the officers did not emanate Irom him or Irom hi* olllce." A lew months ago it was stated by one of tlio St. Louis meti that much of the revenue roiibing was done in Brooklyn. This led tlio writer to make inquiry in official circle*, in tho office of Collector Kreeland, and the result, published in tho Hkhalii at the nine, was that so strict bad been the Inspection of lute years, aud so close was the surveil lance exorcised at the present time, Hint It would be utter'y impossible to defraud the Revenue Department In the manufacture of spirits to any consldotable ex tent To be suro there wero a few small stills running hero and there, but these were broken up as soou as found. They wero unanimous in the exr rosslon of tho opinion thst no "ring" had or could exist in Brooklyn while tho officers of the Revenuo Depart ment were honest and capable, as they had always proved to be. Tho prescut revolutions come upon this vsunieu pui Ity and care tor tho public welfaro like a "thunderbolt irom a clear sky." CALMHTTOB KRKKLANO. when spoken to on the suoject ol Stein's revelations yesterday, said that some two or three weeks ago he received a letter irom the department at Washington, tho content* of which he would not make public, but it had a beariug on this case. He replied to it that he should investigate the matter, and that he thought any overt uction against these officers pendiug his investi gation would be unjust. He has since been engaged in investigating the matter as regards Messrs. Glllen and Giborson. Thus far everything has been lound cor recu Tho amount alleged to have been paid us a bribe lo tbrec men was loo much money, ilio Collector thought, and no Brooklyn distiller could afford to pay iL He could not say whence the attack against his , subordinates proceeded, but he waa free to say that ba ! did not believe anything of it. , .. Chief Deputy Collector Boono, the cashier or tho office, said it was hard enough 10 make straight whis key and psv the tax. It would be impossible, he snid, , to run any'length of lime with tho connivance or two dopuiv assessors. There wore rorty or lifty assistant assessors at tho time Stein rail tbeso stills and when be alleges be paid the money. Besides there wero twelve or fifteen deputy collectors, any ono or whom had power to make a seizure anywhero that they louud a wrong. Neither of these officers will bo suspended during the Investigation. Even should they bo in dicted and tried, the must sxtreiue measure would ba suspending them during trial tub wucr or silkscb.

Mr. Glberson said that two years ago Stein made a similar complaint against Glllen und himself, and It was reicrred to the autboritlea at Washington. There was no truth in It, and thoy were retained in their present positions. ah insiok orriciAL oniwoit or tiib cabb. A Hbbald reporter had a conversation yesterday afternoon with United Htatca Deputy Marshal Do tluo, who is one or the most exptriouced officisls in tbat department or the government service in Brooklyn, touching the merits ol the accusationa made by Chris tian A. Stein, (be Indicted distiller, ngsiust Messrs Hugbes, Glllen and Glberson. Tho Deputy Marshal said that there may be a case against them, but that all the allegations published could not he truebyuny possibility. For Instance, it was stated that Stein b id, during b period extending over two years, paid to hx Assistant District Attorney Hughes and to Deputy Collectors Glberson and Glllen, tba sum of fww weekly bs the price of their silence with regard to tho existence or the illicit whiskey stills thst ha was engaged in running at that time. Five hundred dol lars per week lor two years would amount to about ?fiO.UOO. Mr. Hughes was appointed as Assistant District Attorney about the spring ol 1873 and he held the offico not more tbnu twelve months. He came to Brooklyn from Washington and held no other position here It, thorelore, ioilows that as Mr. Hughes was not In offioa more I ban one year he could not have met Stein as Assistant District Attorney and received that money Irom mm -weokly ror tbo period or two years, as the price ol silence." --This wliolc matter, said Deputy Marshal Da Clue, "romea, in my Judgment, Irom tbo offico of the Supervisor of Internal Revenue in New York.

He finally procured their Ib dictmeut. la tbo preparation or the caso, in obtaining the necessary evidence snd witnesses, he waa aided ct.icily by Deputy Collectors Giborson and Glllen. In that way ho incurred the enmity of the people In ' the Supervisors office )u New York who wero friendly to Sanborn, I believe, and Hughes, Glllen and Glberson think so. too, and tnat vlie story, ss published, emanated from that quarter, from the Irlend* of Mr. Hawley, and that it Pf????*a from an old grudge agaiusl ttiem.
