TITE PRESS. Thursday Morning, March 21, 1867. The napplrmemary Keeoaslrnrtion Bill. (Correspondence of the Press.] Washington, March. 18,1867 The measure passed the Senate un Saturday evening after an exciting debate, extending over four days. Tn some respects this was a more interesting discussion, so far as the Sen ate was concerned, than that on the Military bill. Tills Interest grew out of the debate 1« ing almost entirely confined to the Repo '1 cans, and therefore it served to illustrate t e differences of opinion which are eve oping themselves more sharply and clearly every day. We who watch the proceedings here day by day, perhaps underestimate the interest felt by the eou- try at large in the details of proceed ure often intolerably dry to us, in the author ship of bills of am • • m nts, and in other es sential details. I shall therefore give yon a r o' h s last debate, judging that the in terest is not diminished In this great question, tin the Gth inst. Senator Wilson introduced a bill providing for the registration of voters and the holding of a delegate convention for the purpose of framing a constitution embody ing the requirements of the Military bill. This was a moderate measure and did not meet tlie wishes of the Radicals here or of the South ern loyalists, in that it allowed the military commanders to delegate the works of registra tion to the Governor wherever the? saw pref er; that it did not require the test oath to e taken as registers and election judges, an re quired only a mild one from those registcrt . On the same day Senator Sumner introduced liis resolutions declaring 1st That all existing governments in the nu represented States must be declared vacated. 2d. That provisional governments must be substituted. 3d. That loyalty must bo fostered in the re *rgan!zation. 4th. That education, free and universal, must be required as a guarantee. Gth. That the homestead is also necessary, and each freed head of a family ought to have • piece of land. In the House, Judge Kelley introduced a res olution instructing the Judiciary Committee to report a bill requiring that the District com manders should make a registry, that they should call conventions; and that all votiDg should be by ballot. It passed. Here then was the basis upon which the sup plementary bill was evolved. The necessity grow every day more apparent. Letters and despatches came pouring in from the South declaring that unless a registration was provid ed for in other hands than the rebel provision al governments, and time thus gained for or ganization and agitation, the loyal element would be altogether swamped. It was very evident that the malcontents saw, or a portion of them did, their chance to win by seeming acquiescence. The ballot requirement was to be made to suit Virginia and other States where viva voce voting prevailed. On Monday last the House Judiciary Com mittee reported a bill based on Mr. Wilson's, but much more stringent in details. Its prin cipal features wore those:— . 1st. A registration to be made under the District commanders, and to l>e completed by the 1st. of September 2d. The appointment of three persons in eaeh election District as registers and election judges, the loyalty of said appointees to be es tablished by their taking the “ttstoath.” 3d. The administration of an oath to all per son’s registered, specifying that they had nev er taken an oath of allegiance to the United States, and afterwards engagod in any rebel lion against its Government or given aid to its enemies, that they truly respect and support said Government and will engage all others to do the same. 4th. The District Commandors were to count the votes, apportion the delegates, aud call an election, giving thirty days’ notice; said convention, when assembled, to take the oath required of registered voters, and to be chosen from among such; the constitution, when framed, to be sent to the President to be by him transmitted to Congress lor approval or rejection. This passed on the same day with but little debate, by the operation of a motion to sus pend the rules. Butler made an effort to get a:i amendment introduced strikiug out the date by whioh the registration was required to be finished, on the ground that such burry was not necessary, and that in ditTc-rent districts the circumstanoes would vary. On the same day Mr. Sumner called up too resolutions and debated them. They consum ed two days and were laid on the table by a large vote. Mr. Sumner developed a feeling in the Senate that all had not been required which should have been. Gov. Morton made his first senatorial effort in support of requir ing the State Constitution to guarantee a free and equal common school system. The Gov ernor proved himsell equal to his reputation, and established the tact that the Senate had gained largely by his presence therein. On Tuesday the House bill was sent to the Senate and referred to the Judiciary. On Wednesday they reported a new ' ill as a substitute. This let the bars down in several places. The time of completing tlie registry was tlie same; the registers were not required to *ake the “iron clad;” the oath administered to the registered was much more general as to whether the voter was disfranchised by reason of having previously taken the oath of allegi ance; and also omitted the statement that the party “respected” &c. the government. The time for announcing an election was changed to sixty instead of thirty days, and when the convention assembled it was allowed to decide by a vote whether the people wanted a consti tution frame.! and desired to again establish “normal relations” with the general govern ment. It became evident that these terms were too mild—too dangerous rather—for the aggressive men. On Thursday the discussion and the struggle was spirited, resulting in several im portant amendments being made to to the bill. Mr. Drake ol Missouri took the lead in these efforts, and in his speeches vindicated his claims to be considered a leading spirit. It was from the first evident that he was not at all inclined to trim, change, pay heed to Sena torial deportment, or be turned aside by the rather Pickwickian politenesses which are often the order of the day. He ofi'ored two of the chiet amendments; one requiring an irre versible guarantee of voting by ballot, and the other requiring that at the delegate election the question of a convention or no convention should be submitted and be actedupou direct ly by the people. Both these were voted down though tlie latter was afterwards accepted and’ made section third of the bill as it stands.— Gov. Morton supported the ballot, if not coupled with the irreversible guarantee provi so. The object of Senator Drake’s successful amendment was to make the Constitution the direct work of tlie people. It was also to bring about an agitation upon the question, and to help the general cause. If any State choose to remain undr military pupilage it could do so. Congress in that event would probably territo rialize its government. Another requirement which was struggled for was that a majority of tlie registered voters should vote in favor of the convention. Tlie purpose sought was to pre vent the whites bullying tlie colored citizens away from the polls, and thus controlling af fairs by what might be an actual minority. A compromise was effected on this question by requiring that a majority of registered votes should be cast pro or con, and a majority of these decide, on tlie ratification of the Consti tution. As the bill passed the Senate, one-half ol the registered voters must vote on the ratifi cation, for or against. The test oath as qualifi cation tor registers was also reinserted. Mr. bessenden ottered two amendments, which were intended to allow tlie provisional governments to decide, after the first election, whether they considered the people wanted to change the Constitution. The debate was strong and interesting. Mr. Fessenden’s ob ject was the same as Mr. Drake’s, but tlie Sen ators opposing declared they would not give officials whom they had declared filling pos;. tions illegally an opportunity of declaring whether they wanted to vacate their owu pla ces. Mr. Sunmer’s provision requiring th e adop tion of a free common school system, open to all without regard to color, w;i3 lost on Satur day by a tie vote, 29 to l!0. Three Democrats voted against it. Throughout the debate the Judiciary Com mittee stood together in an effort to get the bill passed at the earliest moment and without amendment. The bill passed on Saturday at half past ten, under the application of Trumbulls whip and spur. It was brought into the House to day, and rules being suspended by a two-thirds vote (this can be done on Mondays) it was amended and amt back to’the Senate. The amendments were two: one requiring that on the ratification of the Constitution, a majoiitj of the registered voters must be given; tl i other placed all ex-State officers of Virgil ia t vho before the rebellion by reason of a lav j use l*in John Tyler’s Presidency,had taken at oith of allegiance to the Union) under the same ban of disfranchisement »* "tll,,ra of tUe same class suffer elsewhere. This '" quite se vere on Virginia, where the h. F. s have been congratulating themselves on getting scot free.1 It is believed the Senate will agree. One of two things will then happen. We shall cither sec the States ready next winter for admission under Republican Union ad ministrations, or we shall find that tho rebels have voted against Conventions and keep a majority out by reason of bullying and other wise keeping the freed citizens from the polls. It is evident already that the Ore’s Pattern’s Brown s id omne f/rnvs, are not as ready as they were a week ago to go to work under the Military Bill. Spectator.

B. to Portland, with a cargo ol lioards, planks and laths, in a violent gale came to anchor in Cranberry Island harbor, ami soon after parted one cable and dragged (lie remaining anchor, came ashore on Stanley point, driving upon the rocky shore, bilging, her rudder being broken and her bot tom badly injured. That on the next day the cap fain came ashore, noted his protest, but did nothing and attempted to do nothing for the preservation of the vessel. That on the 19th of January the libellants com menced cutting away the ice upon said schooner, and on the 20th succeeded in getting her afloat, and mov ed her toward the Pool, which place they succeeded in getting the schooner into on January 24th. The libellants a1 so allege that in saving said schoon er and cargo they suffered much from exposure to the cold, and that the captain and crew of said schooner made no effort to preservo the same. For these services the libellants, 32 in number, claim that they are entitled to meet and competent salvage, which they pray the Court to decree. In answer to the libel, Col. John Goddard, of Cape Elizabeth, claims the cargo as his property, ami de nies the principal allegations of libellants. He also alleges that the vessel was fraudulently dhqiosed of by the captain to libellants. The vessel is claimed by George Eaton, ol St. John, N. B. The only evidence offered by respondent was that of himself. After the testimony was closed, Colonel Goddard arg.ied the case lor himself. He was follow ed by John Raud, Esq., for libellants.

Hnprenae Judicial Court. CRIMINAL TERM.— TAPLEY, J., PRESIDING. TRIAL FOR MURDER. The trial of Charles W. Keenan for the murder of Charles Johnson was resumed yesterday morning. The Court room was crowded to excess. County Attorney Webb re-called the prisoner and put some questions to him as to the purchase of the knife, and what declarations he had made about its prospective use; and also as the position of himsclt and deceased in the scuttle. He said Johnson was upon his body and held him by the throat, 'lie got out his knife and “put it in^o him,” not being able to move from under him or help himself. Direct Examination. There v.as some talk that some one had “cut me out ot Mrs. Douglass,” and I said I did not care anything about it. Peter Daly, sworn. I know tho prisoner and saw him the day of the affair twice; he was drinking cor ner of India and Fore streets when I saw him first; he drank twice there, but I don’t know certainly that he drank more at that time. Cross Examined. This was about eight o’clock in tho mdming. Patrick O’Neil. I know Keenan; saw him on the morning of the murder at saloon on India street, be tween 8 and 0 o’clock; saw him drink twice ami we •went out together down Fore street to Mrs. Doug lass’; saw liquor there and drank there; Mrs. Doug lass was present; I think Mrs. D. brought out the liquor; I staid there about ten minutes; Keenan was up stairs when I came away; Keenan did not drink there to my knowledge. Cross examined by Mr. Webb. I heard Mrs. D. testify yesterday; it was after 10 o’clock when 1 left Mrs. Douglass’; I knew Keenan two or three weeks before he went to sea; after I left him 4it Mrs. D.’s I saw him firgt again here. John Soulo. I saw Keenan at Mrs. Douglass’ the day of the murder; I drank with Keenan there; he fumed some out for Mrs. Douglass but she did not drink it. John Foxton. I know Keenan; I keep a sailor’s l>oarduig house; saw Kocnan about noon that day at my house; drank there. (The admissibility of testi mony ns to the alleged intoxication of Johnson was discussed, and decided in favor ot admitting it). I saw Johnson al»out 2 o’clock; did not speak to him; siipposod bo had bocn drinking ft little. Cross Examined. My place is 124 Fore street; boarded two vessels that morning; saw Johnson on board the last vessel boarded; he got there about the same time I did; he did not come ashore when I did; did not see Johnson drink anything that morning; saw him about 4 o’clock with Mrs. Douglass’ boy. John Knapp. I saw Charles Johnson the day of the killing; he had been drinking; it was about two o’clock. James Curtis. I know the deceased. Questions as to whether ^loceased was in the habit of carryirig a revolver, were deemed inadndssable. Dr. Gordon, sworn. His evidence was only as to the wounds aud the probability ot the position of tho parties. Joseph Galvin, called for Government. Brother ot Mrs. Douglass. Saw Keenan day before the mur der; saw Keenan have the knife, and Keenan said he would cut tho belly of that Dutchman open before lie left; saw him then go towards Johnson’s room. Cross Examined, He put the kni/e info his pocket open, with point down, and kept hi* hand there; I did not tell Johnson what prisoner said; I did not think he would kill Johnson. Manasseh Smith, sworn by defence. Saw Keenan on the night of the murder; his face was beaten and fine place was discolored. Sheriff Parker corroborated this fact. Constable Gallison, for tho Stete, testified to about the same. He thought the prisoner had been drink ing, but was sober enough to walk about without any trouble. Deputy Marshal Irish testified that ho did not no tice any bruises upon prisoner. Frederick Fox was sworn and testified as to conver sation with prisoner on the evening of the day of the murder. The prisoner told mo had acted in self-de fence; I noiiccd tho bruise on his chock und that his lip was swollen. Tho evidence being all in, Mr. Reed made the clos ing argument for the prisoner. It was an able aud ingenious one. His main point was that the jury? with the testimony, could not convict tho prisoner of murder in the first degree. That the homicide was committed during the struggle between the two men, when both were, at least partially intoxicated, lie occupied one hour in his argument. County Attorney Webb in the afternoon made one of liis most forcible arguments, occupying nearly two hours, aud insisting that the evidence in the case au thorized the jury to render their verdict, of murder in the first degree. The charge of Judge Tapley was a lair and impar tial one, presenting the case to the jury in a clear light, and instructing them in the law upon the mat ter. rue jury renrea at iu minutes past * o'ciock. Alter being out just one Lour they came into court ami tlie Foreman announced the verdict, GUILTY OF MUR DER IN T1IE FIRST DEGREE. Tlie prisoner was then remanded, to be brought up for sentence when the County Attorney requests. We understand tlie jury when they first went out balloted as to tho question of the prisoner’s guilt. They decided unanimously that he was guilty. Then they balloted as to tho crime, and were unanimous that it was murder. Then as to the degree; and on the first ballot nine were for murder in the first de gree, and three lor the second degree. Subsequently, I he minority gave way and agreed to the verdict as rendered. The trial ot Jones for arson, lb setting fire to the dwelling house of Capt. Williams, on Federal street, will commence this morning. Municipal C ourt. JUDGE KINGSBURY PRESIDING.

To Brick Makers,—Good chance for a brick yard, Bae advertisement, meeting #f the Maine Denial Mociety. The Maine Dental Society met at the Com mon Council Room Tuesday afternoon. There was a good number of members from the State, in attendance; also Dr. C. R. Coffiin, of London, England, Dr. J. A. Salmon, of Bos ton, and L. D. Shepherd, of Salem. The President, Dr. Bacon, being prevented Irom being present by the death of his daugh ter Tuesday morning, Dr. T. Haley, of Bidde ford, was called to the chair. Upon the recommendation of the Executive Committee, Dr. ,T. T. Chase, of Hallowoll, and Drs. H. Kimball, "W. R. Johnson, S. C. Fer nald, C. Kimball and F. A. Prince, of this city were admitted to membership. Drs. Coffin, Gilman and Johnson were chos en a committee to draft resolutions of condo lence with Dr. Bacon in his great affliction. It was voted that all Dentists present be in vited to take part in the discussions of the so ciety. Drs. Gilman,H. Kimball and T. Fillebrown were appointed a committee to nominate dele gates to the American Dental Association. The question—How best to preserve the Natural Teeth—was assigned for discussion at the eveuing session. The remainder of the afternoon was occu pied with an interesting discussion of the re sponsibility of the profession in regard to dental students, and the means to be used to elevate the standard of the profession. EVENING SESSION. The Society mot at 7 1-2 o’clock, and the committee on resolutions reported the follow ing, which were adopted: Whereas — Our worthy Presideut, Dr. E. Bacon, is prevented from meeting with us by family affliction— Resolved — that we, the members of the Maine Dental Society, desire to extend our deep sympathy and condolence to him and his family in this thr ir second bereavement within a few short months, of another fond and lov ing daughter: trusting that, they may he sup ported in their deep affliction by the Div'ne revelation that our permanent s^ate of exis tence is not in this world, and that it is by Divine order that, all shall pass from this pre paratory state to their home in the spiritual world. Resolved—'That the Secretary address a copy of these resolutions to our brother. The remainder of the session was devoted to a discussion of the question assigned in the afternoon. WEDNESDAY FORENOON. The Society met pursuant to adjournment. The subject which came up 'for discussion was the place of hold ing the next meeting, and Bangor was suggested, but was opposed on the ground that no response had been mado by the dentists of that city to the objects of the So ciety. The debate took a wider range, and led to the subject of establishing a Dental Insti tute or Infirmary, and a clinique and cabinet of anatomical preparations, &c. An expres sion was made in favor of locating such an In stitute at Brunswick, in connection with the Medical School, while others favored Portland, with an independent library, &e. Finally, the whole mattet, including the place for hold ing the next quarterly meeting in .Tune, was left with the standing committee. The next annual meeting will be held in Portland on the third Tuesday of September. After passing a vote of thanks to the City for the gratuitous use of the Council Chamber, the meeting finally adjourned. Obscene Intngnagc. I am aware that a large portion of the com munity are in the habit of using profane and obscene language. A lady cannot walk in the streets of Portland at night, without being in sulted at almost every corner with the foul billings-gate. It is instilled into the young at an early age so that it liecomes a part of tlieir nature. The father repeats it before his chil dren, and men that call themselves respectable congregate in stores, workshops and all public places for the purpose of indulging in this low propensity of vulgar stories, jokes, &c., &c.— It would have been better for them if they had learned in their youth the following quotation: ‘Vulgarity despise; to swear is neither brave nor wise.” I do not think they realizo what an evil influence such indecent language ex erts upon the minds of both old and young, and they certainly do not remember that “for every idle word they must give an account.”— There is a class of men who arc too far ad vanced in the paths of vice'to heed this warn ing, but if it should please God to make it_ the instrument of good to any one, then am I truly thankful and well pleased. Harry Goodboy. Grand Concert.—The announcement of Mr. Gilmore, in outadvertising columns, of the grand vocal and instrumental concert to be given at Deering Hall, on Thursday evening of next week, will be received with much pleas ure by all our music-loving citizens. The list of attractions whiel the bill presents is cer tainly a brilliant one, the array of talent such as is not otten found combined. The matchless violinist, Camilla Urso, needs no introduction to Portland audiences; her consummate skill in handling that master instrument is well known. Equally well known and warmly ap preciated among us is the accomplished cornet player, Mr. Arbnekle. The vocal talent which is engaged for this concert is also of the high est order. Tn® steamer City of Richmond has been put iu complete order, and will leave for Machias and intermediate landings, on her first trip, Friday evening at 10 o’clock. She will leave Franklin wharf on her first trip, and thereafter Railroad wharf foot of State street. Shippers of goods and others will please bear this in mind. \Ve are also requested to state that the Rich mond will mako a trip down the Bay this fore noon, leaving Franklin wharf at 10 1-2 o’clock. Stockholders, editors and reporters are cordial ly invited to he present. Another Church in the “Destitute ’ Fart of the City.—At a meeting of the pro prietors of St. Luke’s Church, on Tuesday eve ning, it waB voted to purchase tho estate owned by O’Neal W. Robinson, Esq., of Wa terford, situated on State street, just below the State street Church, and a little more than a stone’s throw from their former church, wliieh they sold to the St. Stephen’s Society. It is a splendid lot for the purpose, and as that neigh borhood is so “destitute” of churches, we are glad they have selected it. The price to be paid is said to be $20,000. “City Farm” Florinda.
