' - . ... LATEST NEWS BT TELEGKAPH TO THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS. -- ■ -■-— Monday Morning, March 4,1867. -—— WASHINGTON. Veto Messages by tbe Presideut. Report of the Jndtclary Com mittee on Impeachment. CONFIRMATION)*. Washington, March 2. The President has approved the Consular and Diplomatic Appropriation bill, the Miiita ry bill and the bill refunding money to people who paid commutation and who subsequently went into ibe military sen-ice. The following is a synopsis of the President's veto message on the Reconatmotion bill: The President submits whether this meas ure is not in its whole character, scope and object without precent and without authority; ia probable conflict with the plainest provis ion of the Constitution, and utterly destruc tive to those great principles, liberty and .hu manity, for which cur ancestors on both sides of the Atlantic have shed so much blood and expended so much treasure. He says the hill tVuuld seem to show on its faee that the .estab lishment of peace and cood order is not its real object. He alludes to the conditions which must be fulfilled before the people of any of the Southern States can be relieved from the bondage of military domination. The military rule which it establishes is plainly to he used not for any purpose of order or for the preven tion of crime, but solely as a means of coercing the people into the adoption of principles and measures to which it is known they .are oppos ed, and upon which they have an undeniable right to exorcise their owii judgment. He con cludes by saying: At present ten States are denied representation, and when the* 40th Con gress assemhleson tne Itliof t lie present mouth ten States will bo without a voice in the House of Representatives. This grave fact, with the important facts before us, should iuduco us to pause in a course of legislation which, looking solely to the attainment of political ends, fails to consider rights it trangresses, laws which it violates, or institutions which it imperile. Washington March3. The following is a synopsis of the President's message vetoing the Tenure of Office bill: Tho President quotes the language of the first section of the bill, which, he says, con tains tlie material portion. In his judgment, the bill conflicts with tlie Constitution in pro viding that the President shall not remove any of the civil officers when terms of service are not limited by law, without the advice and con sent of the Senate. The question is not a new one. That the power of removal is constitu tionally invested in the President, is a princi ple which lias been not mo3e dietinctly declar ed by judicial authority and commentators than it has been uniformly practiced upon legisla tive and the executive department of the Gov ernment. He refers in support of this opin ion, to the discussions which have arisen at various times on the subject. Tho question first arose as early as 1789, in the House of Representatives, on the hill to establish a de partment of Foreign Affairs. Mr. Madison, whose adverse opinion on the constitutional power of removal by the President had beeu relied upon by those who denied the exclusive power, patticipated in the debate, and declared that he had reviewed his former opinion. Mr. .Madison, in summing up his opinion, in which ho asserts as his opinion, that the Executive power includes the power of removal, and that tho Senate is only associated with the Presi dent in appointing to office, is quoted in full. Thequestion wasdecided by the House of Rep resentatives, 31 to 20, iu favor of tlie principle that the Executive power of removal is, by the Constitution, vested in the executive; and in the Senate tho principle was sustained by the casting vote of the Vice President. The ques tion has often been raised in time of high ex citement, but the practice of tho Government lias nevertheless conformed in ail cases to the decision thus early made. In 1839 the Supreme Court decided that tho power of removal was vested in the President alone in such cases, al though tlie appointment of the officer is by the President and Senate. The late Daniel Web ster, while dissenting from it, admitted that it was settled by the Constitution, settled bv the practice of the Government, and settled by statute. Having at an early period accepted the Constitution in regard "to tho Executive office in the sense in which it was interpreted witli the concurrence of its founders, the Pres ident says lie lias found no sufficient grounds in arguments now opposed to that construc tion, or in ony assumed necessity of the times, for shaking off those opinions, 1 return the bill to the Senate, in which it originated, for the further consideration of Congress, whioh the Constitution prescribes. The Judiciary Committee of the House, in thsirj’eport on the impeachment, say that soon after the admition of tlie resolution by the House, Hon. Jas. M. Ashley communicated to the committee in suyport of his charge against the President of tlie" United States such fact as were in his possession, and investigation was proceeded with and lias been continued almost without a day’s intervention. Everything has heed done which could lie done to reach a con clusion, bat the investigation covers a broad field and involves a mnltitute of officials, while most oi the witnesses are distant from the Cap ital, owing to which tho committee have not been able to conclude its labors and it is not, therefore, prepared to submit a dtfiuite and final report. The committee not having fully investigated the all the charges, it is deemed inexpedient to submit any conclusion beyond the statement that sufficient has been hi ought to its notice to justify and demand a further prosecution of the investigation. The Senate has confirmed the nomination of John A. Dix as Minister to France, and Hugh Ewing as Minister to the Hague. MEXICO. Departure of Maximilian for the Seat of War. Communication Cut of) with the Capital. New Orleans, March. 2. pates from the city of .Mexico to the 19th ult. have been received. .Maximilian has 1* ft, going to the northward, with (>000 men.
