The proceedings in the trial of the Impeachment have been confined since our last to the delivery of arguments, pro and con, by the Managers and counsel. Mr. Boutwell, on the part of the Managers, began his argument on April 23, continuing it until the middle of the session on April 24. Mr. Nelson, of the President’s counsel, followed, and on April 25 Mr. Groesbeck for the same side delivered a brief but able argument in defense of the President’s course. Mr. Stevens attempted to read his speech on April 27, but his voice failing him, Mr. Butler concluded it for him. He was followed by Mr. Williams.
