We present the following resolu- tions eminating from the two parties in Texas. Let the people read and mark the contrast: neMlmleux, Adopted by the Castle of the "K. G.

That we regard the U. S. Gov- ernment as being a de facto Govern- ment, and hold that the Constitution of Texas, as modified upon secession and the statutes based thereupon, as &ur de jure State Constitution and statutes. We consider the Constitu- tion and statutes of 18Gfi as being de facto only because made un- der color of authority of the so-called United States Government, and un- der a duress imposed by the presence of Yankee troops, .but still give them a ...

"What are the faults of boy-work V asked Isaac. "One of the fmilts is confounding work with play; or rather expecting the pleasure of play while they are doing work. There is great enjoyment in do- ing work, when it is well and properly done ; but it is very different from the pleasure of play. It comes later ; gen- erally, after the work is évéfe. While you are doing your work, it requires exertion and self-denial, and sometimes the sameness is tiresom...

The Trial by Impeachment by joseph story, ll. d. " When i then, an officer is known or suspected to be guilty of malversation in office, a member of the House Of Representatives usually brings forward a resolution to accuse the party, or for the appointment of- a Committee, .yto consider and report upon the 'charges laid against him. The latter is ihe ordinary course; and the report oí the Committee usually contains, if adverse to the party, a statement of the charges, and recommends a resolu- tion that he be impeached therefor. If the resolution is adopted by the House, a Committee is then appointed to im- peach tho party at the bar of the Sen- ate, and to state that the articles against him will be exhibited in due time, and made good before the Sen- ate, and to demand that the irenate take order for the appearance of the party to answer to the impeachment. This being accordingly done, the Sen- ate signify their willingness to take such order, and articles are then pre- pared by a...

«y aad In the speech of Hon. Geo. Wood, word, late Chief Justice of Penn., on Monday evening last, in the House of Representatives, he employed the fol- lowing extraordinary language: "If I were the President's counsel- lor, I would advise him, if you prefer article of impeaohmcnt, to «demur both to your jurisdiction and to that of the Senate, and to issue a proclamation giving you and all the world notice that, whilst he held himself impeach- able for misdemeanors in office before the constitutional tribunal, he never would subject the office which he holds in trust for the people to the irregular, unconstitutional, fragmentary bodies who propose to strip him of it. Such a proclamation, with the army and navy in hand to sustain it, would meet a popular response that would make an end of impeachers and im- peachment." It is almost incredible that such language was permitted in the House of Representatives of the United States,especially when the author of it takes the money of the G...

art. peeoh of Hon Henry L. Oako, of Pa- Ma. Speaker: Leaving to other rep- esentatlves of the people here the dln- usslon of the constitutional question ívolved in the impeachment of the wting President, it is my purpose to advert, and that but briefly, to the effect that it will have upon the public mind. It has been my privilege to spend the last week among those who sent me here to represent them. The con- duct of Andrew Johnson was freely discussed by men of all parties, and not in one single instance did I find an apologist for him. Leading Demo- crats insist that lie must be thrown overboard in order to save their party, and many Republicans think he iriigilt be left alone in safety as the best card to be played against the Copperheads in the coming canva s. But politics aside, all agree that he U a^iAngerous man, and that the country would be (calmed by his suspension from the duties of his high position. I His impending impeachment has opened up the whole question of the reb...

Mrs. Dewees did not mean to be un ind to the child of her husband's dead ¡ister. She saw that she was properly |fed and clothed, and what more could be aeked ? It was not to be -expected that she could take her to her heart as ne of her own children; eveff had she been as pretty as her little Janie and Mollie, which was far from the case.

Grant and Colfax will «go bo well to- gether, and there is evidence in their lives that each has peculiar fitness for the plaoe for which ho is named. General Grant is an executive man, reserved iu words, but prompt to act; quiet in conduct, but deoi- ded in principle. Ho does thai which he has to do without noise and confusion, and with iittle wear and tare. Tl ere is no " fuss and feathers" about him, and he bears the greatest responsibilities with the ease of a conscious master of ti e situation. Mr. Speaker Oolfax is the candidate for the Presidency of the Senate, and, if elected will, in the chair of the Senate, as it that of the Qonse, prove his admirable qualities as a presiding officer; and it will be but a graceful recognition of his excellent servi ces, if he should be promoted ...

The Con- {•«visional plan has been ratified in Ar- kansas, North Corolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Louisiana. In Alabama, the Constitution received nearly all the votes cast, but as the law required that a majority of all who had registered should vote on the question, it barely failed. By act of Congrega now pend- *hig, which will soon be passed, it will be submitted to the people, when its ratification w.ill Lq probable. The tear is yet to be made in Virginia, Flor- ida, Mississippi and Texas, when the like result is pretty sure to follow, ex- cept, perhaps, in the case of Ti xas. Should any of these States reject their new constitutions at the first 4,rial, Con- gress will no doubt provide for the re- submission of the qucs^on, and, should Mr. Wado then occupy the Executive chair, they will mos...
