Wc confess to a most pleasant surprise at the remit of tlio vote Inst Saturday on the 11 th article of impeachment, Wc had been so thoroughly satisfied that the court vs a packed concern that the precise issuo was known by the managers before a word of evidence was taken that acquittal seemed to us as ono of the roqst improbable of earthly events; and those who risked their money on it we conld not but regard as very pimple fools. The verdict is, therefore, a most welcome and joyful surprise. If the Democrat who stood firmly by the Constitution desorvo our respect and admiration, and confidence, it is difficult to express our appreciation of the seven Republican Senators who dared to do right against such a pressure, as was probably never before successfully resisted in tho history of political prosecutions by tho party in power.
