Office, Room No. 11 Staatb-Zeitttno Uuildino,! March 27, 1873. J Tho Utno haring expired within which wore limited aub* acrlptlons to ten aharoa, the balance of tho Block la now open to tbo public at large, and It la to bo hoped that thoio who hare boon backward hitherto will at onco come forward and close up tho Hat, so na to onablo tho Com mlttoo to go to work putting up tho building, notifying manufacturers and other probable exhibitors, and pro* paring generally for tbo grand oroat. An Exposition of suoh a character as tho Oommlttoo propose cannot fall to of being a groat benefit to our city and tbo pnbllcatlargo. Tho following roaolutlona embrace thotr ideas, and it Is forthoao who subscribe to tbo slock to modify or ro» arrange tho plan thus presented If necessary for tbo gen eral good: At a Mass-Mooting hold at Jackson’s Hall on Wednes day, tho Mth of March, tho Hon. Joseph Modll), R. J. Crano, and O. 8. Rowon wore appointed a Oommlttoo on ResoluUons. After mature deliberation tho Oommlttoo presented tho following resolution, which toas unanimous 4 ly adopted: Jieiolvtil, That Moura. O. W. Potter, Henry H. King, J. McGregor Adams, and B. Vf. Blotchford. of tho Norm Bldo,: N. H. Bouton, Goo. W. Gape. W. B. Coolbauph, and M. U. Wells, of tho Sonia Side, and C. 11. McCor mick, 11. 11. Taylor, David Bradley, and U. T. Oraao, of tho West Bldo, bo sppolatod a commiltoo to consider the bolding of a grand INDUSTRIAL EXPOSITION In or near tub city, on or about tbo Oth day of October next, lu connection with tbo Northovroctom Woolen Manulaotnr ora* Association, and aatd Oommlttoo to report at a future mooting as to location, plan of exposition, amount of monoy required and plan of raising same, with auob otbor Information aa they may doom of Interest to tbo mooting. Also, to wait on tbo Woolen Manufacturers, who bold tbolr annual mooting to-morrow, and assure thorn that tho people of Chicago will soo that they are well oarod for should they doslro to hold tbolr next annual exposition in Obloago. In compliance with the foregoing resolution, tbo Com mittee, so appointed, liavo hold several meetings, and now present tbolr Onal report In the form of resolutions, trusting that tbo citizens of Obloago shall make it effec tual by their action. . ~ „ lit, Rttolved, That It is tbo sense of this Oommlttoo that a groat Intor-Btato-lndnstrial Exhibition shall bo bold In tbo Oity of Chicago during tho coming fall, com mencing on or about Bopt. 15, and continuing lour or more weeks. 2d. Resolved. That tbo main object of the Exposition should bo to exhibit in systematic arrangement, in one immense collection, tbo products of all klnda of mechan ical, artistic, and Industrial skill and labor, including the product# of manufacturers, mines, Inventions, agricul ture, horticulture, painting, sculpture, and all the trades and arts, together with tbo raw and wrought materials of commerce in all forms. . , „ Bd. Resolved, That while tho main object of tho Ex position should bo as above, tho mauagomont should also provide amply for musical and other popular entertain ments, and also cordially 00-oporato with any rospootablo auxiliary association that may undertake to Inaugurate a grand Uve-atook exhibition, to bo held In tbo vicinity of Chicago during the term of the Exposition. 4th. Resolved, That tho Exposition should bo National and metropolitan In its scope; that tbo pooplo of all Statos and all countries bo cordially Invited to contribute arti cles for exhibition In ovory department, and that our friends from abroad bo assured of a warm welcome, hos pitable entertainment, and equal faculties in ovory ro ,P6thV Resolved, That, in the opinion of this Committee, tho most eligible location for such an Exposition Is that portion of too Lake Park situated north of Oongroas-at., the same bolng In tbo groat Burned District, near tbo heart of tbo city, near tbo central termini of all tbo street car and omnibus linos, aa well as within from two to ton minutes'walk of all tbo principal hotels, and all tho rail way depots and steamboat landings of tbo city. 6ih. Resolved, That snob location on tbo lake front will bo equally accessible from all divisions and suburbs of tho city, and thus promote tbo comfort and oonvonionco alike of citizens and visitors from abroad, and especially ren der feasible tho giving of evening entertainments, thus not only enlarging tbo sou;ces ot revenue, but enabling tbabuslnossman, tbo mechanic, the clerk, tho laboring man, and their families, comprising more than nine tenths of tho population of tho oity and its suburbs, to enjoy tho advantages of the Exposition and Its auxiliary entertainments, evening after evening, at tlttlo or no cost for transportation, and without infringing on tbo hour* of labor or business,and Interrupting too city's industries. 7tb. Resolved, That in tbo opinion of this Oommlttoo tho Increased receipts rosuuiog from such accessible central location of tho Exposition, with lie attendant ad vantages lor evening exhibitions, musical and otbor en tertainments, regardless of inclement weather, wIU bo moro than equivalent to tho whole cost of erootlng oven temporary, but ample and attractive buildings, certainly after allowing for the remaining vslno of materials for uso therein. Btb. Resolved, That wbUe a permanent annual exposi tion In Chicago is extremely desirable, and It Is oxpootod that such an institution will be the natural outgrowth of a successful issue of tbo present enterprise, It Is foared that there now remains Insufficient time to consider and dispose of rival schemes, to raise sufficient capital for ad equate, permanent buildings, and to oroot the samo in localities on the outskirts of the city, and that such an attempt os this would jeopardize tbo bolding of an exposi tion tuts year at all. Stb. Knotted, That a mass meeting of tho oltlzons of Chicago bo called for the evening of Saturday, tho Bth prox., at the Chamber of Commerce, or other suitable place, to subscribe a guarantee capital of $150,000; con ditioned that no part of tho subscriptions shall bo called in until two-thirds of tbo amount Is subscribed, nor until tbo oity authorities shall bavo granted tbo free nse of tbo Lake Bark until tho Ist of Jsnuaryuoxt; and conditioned, also. that, aa soon as twu-tblrda of the capital is sub scribed, tho stockholders shall bo duly called together for Eermanont organization, and to oloot a President, a oard of Directors or Commissioners, and such other offi cers as they may doom necessary to carry out tbolr wishes. On motion Messrs. Taylor, Coolbaugb, and Crane woro appointed a Committee to soouro a comfortable place for bolding a public mooting, issue a oall, and obtain speakers. Mr. Bouton offered tho following which was adopted : Resolved, That a permanent annual exposition la Chi cago Is extremely desirable, and we would roeommond tbat the organization bo formed as provided in tbo ninth resolution to make tho arrangemonta for this Expo sition. with tho view of utilizing the expenditures as well ns tho protits tbat shall arise from tbo Exposition to con tinue the organization permanently. Tho gentlemen whoso names are subjoined have so far IdontiiTed themselves with tbo roovomont and are further prepared to aid In pushing tho work to ultimate suoocss : Tue Committee fool that tho stock should be divided up among the citizens generally, and not bo monopolized by a low, oven though those low should subscribe purely on the grounds of publio interest. This Is a Chicago en terprise for tho benefit of tho whole city, and ovory citi zen wbosu interests aro permanently here. Therefore, all should nolle and contribute, so far as tboir moans will allow, towards making the event worthy of our name and history* The money, tuns contributed will not bo a simple gratuity, but au Investment which will pay a largo divi dend, not only In mono/, but in tho resulting Increase of business, tho establishment of now linos of trade, and manufacture, the Increase la existing values of property. Let every llvo Chicago man add his name to tho list of subscribers to Chicago's Grand Intor-Btato Industrial Ex position. Avery, Murphy A Co., 3; Atkins a. Burgess, 2; J.

Tho defeated Virginia politicians who sought to make a change in the post-office at Richmond arc now put to their wits’ ends to explain their discomfiture. A Petersburg paper, in the inter est of Senator Lewis, endeavors to account in tbo following manner for tho President's action. It says: Tho reappointment and confirmation of Mrs. Bcttlo Van Lew aa Postmaster of Richmond ought to bavo been expected, whoa it is remembered what faithful service oho rendered Grant when bo was besieging Richmond* Sbo established a dally communica tion with him, and kept him informed as to tho progress of events in tho Confed erate Capital, and then sbo sent him flowers. Nosegays clipped In her garden in tho morn ing havo been known to have been on bis auppor-tablo at night at City Point.

Whilo tho Senators remained hero they busied themselves, mostly all, in worrying tho President for offices for their friends ana ad herents. On this account thoro is no doubt hut that tho President Is glad to be rid of thorn. Several Senators loft for their homos this even ing, and tho remainder will go before the close of tho wcok. THE KELLEY RONDS. Treasurer Spinner has not yet received any roply from Oauos Amos, to whom ho forwarded tho SI,OOO In bonds of tho Credit Mobilior, which were turned over to him by Rep resentative Kelley. Tho bonds woro sent to Amos on tho 15th lust, with a roonost that ho would so indorse them as to make them converti ble, in order that they might bo covered into tho Treasury. Tho question which naturally arises is, doos Mr. Amos iutoud to comply with General Spinner’s request, or hold on to tho bonds, which ho repeatedly said belonged to Mr. Kelly ? THE PNEUMATIC TUDE FRAUD. Among tho frauds sanctioned by tho Forty second Congress during its second session was an appropriation of $16,000 to allow ono Bris bane to experiment upon a pneumatic tube be neath tho Capitol and tho Government Printing Office. Last summer Brisbane caused to ho dug up and put in an impassable condition tho ave nue loading to tho printing offico. Ho laid a sort of barrel sower of thin boards, and than covered it up; as might havo boon expected, tho earth flattened tho boards, and tho thing is a stupend ous failure. All there is to show for the $15,000 of tho people's monoy is au unseemly hole in the embankment on tho north side of tho Capitol, and a ditch running there from to tho Government Printing Office. Even tho Senators, who aro partially responsible for this waato of tho publio monoy, thought it was nocossory to pass a resolution to-day, boforo adjourning, authorizing tho Secretary of tho Interior to mako inquiry about it. FINANCIAL. The rloo in gold in Now York to-day has boon tho occasion of considerable comment among Treasury officials.

Mr. WINDOM merely wished to say that, al though Congress increased tho compensation of tho railroad companies somo $500,000, It was now understood that thoy refuse to perform a part of tho service, namely: as to postal-cars. Mr. MORRILL (Vt.) said that tho railroad companies having entered into a combination, it was necessary to mako inquiries in order that tho Senate might tako prompt and efficient action when thoy meet again. Tho resolution was adopted. BROTHER NEWMAN. Mr. MORTON referred to tho Tact that, at the commencement of this session, tho Rev. Dr. Newman was elected Chaplain. Senator Cam eron afterwards moved to reconsider tho vote, hut promised subsequently to withdraw his motion. The Senator not now being in.Wash ington, ho asked the Senate to dispose of tho question.

PACIFIC RAILROAD BONDS. Mr. OABSERLY offered tho following resolu tion. which was adopted: Resolved, That tbo Secretary of the Treasury and tho Secretary of tbo Interior, respectively, bo and they are hereby■ directed to transmit to the Senate any in formation in their respective Departments as to tbo amount of bonds issued by or on tbo creditor the Cen tral Pacific Railroad Company. forming tbo -Ant mortgage or lion on tbo Company's Road and property, and on what property specifically, and also, tho amount of said bonds issued from time to time, and at what date thoy wore issued ; and also, to ascertain and re port under what general designation such bonds aro commonly negotiated or known, and to transmit all said information, brought down to the latest dates, to tbo Senate at the next session of Congress.

W. Patterson,” bo received, filed, and printed with the report of said Committee. Tho resolution as thus amended passed. TUB TRANSPORTATION QUESTION. Mr. WINDOM called up tho following resolu tion heretofore offered by him: Ruolved, That tho Select Committee on Transporta tion Routes to tho Seaboard bo authorized to sit at such places ns they may designate during tho recess, and to investigate and report upon tho subject of transportation between tbo interior and tho seaboard; that they have power to employ a clerk and steno grapher, and to send for persons and papers, and that the actual and necessary expenses attending such in vestigations be paid out of the contingent fund of tho Senate, upon vouchers approved by tho Chairman of said Committee. Mr.WINDOM rose to explain tho objects and purposes of tho resolution. It is. ho said, an admitted fact, that tho present facilities for the interchange of products and commodities be tween tho interior and tho seaboard are totally inadequate. Bitter complaints of extortion and oppression come to us from all ports of the coun try. The channels of commerce are controlled by powerful monopolies, who dictate their own terms to tho people. Tho burdens they impose upon tho consumer and producer are too griev ous to be long endured. 'While millions of bushels of corn and wheat are rotting in tho fields of tho West, thousands of people in the East are suffering for tho want of cheap broad. Tho demand of tho people for redress can neither bo evaded nor denied. To tho groat central portions of tho Republic tho question has become one of vital importance. With tho farmer, who sees tho product of his summer’s toll consumed to warm his dwelling in winter, because it costs more than it will bring to trans port it to market, this question overshadows all others. Party linos and party platforms sink into insignificance in the faco of questions in volving tho right to live. Congress will be com pelled, at an early day, to act on this subject. All I now ask of the Senate is, that the Commit tee appointed to consider this subject may have the power to investigate it thoroughly, and as certain tho extent of tho evil complained of; tho necessity for tho remedy, and; if possible, bo able to recommend some definite action at tho next session. Tho resolution was unanimously passed. ADJOURNMENT.
