WASHINGTON. Outline of the Bill in Equity Against the Credit Moblllcr. What the Snydioato Party are Doing In Europe. Dispatch to The Chicago IW6un*. A PREDICTION. , Washington, May 15.—Tho Administration brgan boro this morning . Is considerably troubled about tho Congressional Convention which Is sitting In St. Louis. A short time ago It deprecated the movement, on tho ground that It was of a sectional character, and consequently ihould bo discouraged. Now it remarks as follows: . ' This 81. Louis convention is, if wo aro not mistaken, Ibo Initial point in a now departure upon which par- Uea will rise and fall, which will draw Into it tho Whole Industrial forces of tho country in a straggle against tho railroad corporations. Alabama's indebtedness. Gov. Lewis and Treasurer Bingham, of Ala bama, passed through this city to-day, on route home from Now York, whore thoy have boon making arrangements for paying tho interest on the bonded debt of the State, and con summating tbo salo of tho Alabama ACliattanooga Railroad. The June interest will bo promptly paid, but grave doubts aro expressed as to tbo ability of tho Stato to moot tno July interest. The parties who purchased tbo Alabama & Chattanooga Railroad, under an act of tho into General Assembly, have failed to moot their engagements. THE EUROPEAN SYNDICATE has already boon served with enough now 6 per 'cent bonds to meet their first $60,000,000 subscrip tion to tho $800,000,000, but another lot of bonus Will probably bo sent to Europe in a few days in order to famish a larger stoolc of thoso denomi nations most In demand. This will not involve another call from tho Syndicate at present, and tho probability is that no now call will bo made for somo time to come. About $12,000,000 of the $50,000,00b will be takon in this country. Tho Syndicate will, on tho Ist of Juno, pay for tho greater portion of tho $50,000,000 bonds al ready taken in 5-20 bonds of 18G2, and ibo re mainder in gold. It is understood that a party of clerks will leave hero to-morrow, and sad from Now York on Saturday, with a batch of $8,000,000 more new bonds for tho Syndicate; tut this foot, If it shall turn out to be such, is carefully concealed by tho Treasury authorities. TUB NEW YORK CENTRAL. The Commissioner of Internal Revenue ro tolvCd to-dny from Collector Bailey, at Albany, a certificate of deposit for $480,000, covering pay ment of tho scrip dividend tax duo from the Now York Central Railroad Company. This amount la exclusive of nearly $50,000 obtained from loco motives seized and sold prior to tho recent olTer of compromise, 'which resulted In tho above pay* ment» made under protest. It is expected that Iho company will immediately commence suit against Collector Bailey, who retires from his office on tho 20th Inst., for the recovery of tho whole amount, notwithstanding tho decision of judge Woodruff, of Now York, which was sus tained by the Supreme Court of tho United States. WESTERN NATIONAL BANKS. As an indication of the prosperity and Increase In the West and Northwest, is tho fact that quite » number of National Banks, especially in tbo tun oiler cities, have from time to time applied to tho Comptroller of tho Currency for permission to increase their capital. As tho matter now elands, additional circulation con be given. Tho last bonk which made application of this sort is the First National, of Santa Fo, Now Mexico, which wants to increase its capital from $150,- 000 to $200,000. THE BOOS BURLOINEB. George W. Sohlodo, who was committed to jail about ton days ago, charged with larceny of books from tho Congressional Library, was re leased to-day on bis own recognizance, and will await the action of tho Grand Jury next month. roSTAL AGENT ARRESTED. W. Archer, of Virginia, Postal Route Agent between Macon and Brunswick, Ga., was arrest ed in this city to-day by a special agent of tbo Post-Office Department, charged with robbing the moils of $328 in money-order funds, and other registered letters containing small sums belonging to private parties. Archer was taken South to-night, lie does not admit tho theft, but offers to pay tbo amount olaimod if the authentic* will lot him off. [2b the Associated Prett, 1 LEGAL-TENDERS.

Tho Post-Office to-day issued an advertise ment soliciting proposals for one year’s supply of post-office and registered package envelopes. Estimated quantity of tho former, 8,000,000 j of tho latter, 4,000,000. SUITS AGAINST TOE CREDIT MOBILER. The bill in equity prepared by counsel of the United States against tbo Union Pacific Railroad Company and Credit Mobllior, to bo filed in the United States Court at Hartford| proceeds on the ground that the original subscriptions to tho Company wore never actually and really paid, and that tbo receipt for payment was tho result of fraud and fiction. The suit is, therefore, to compel those who subscribed to pay tho amounts severalty credited to them, and to account for the bonds, stocks, and moneys aud other prop erty widen they received as profits, to wbioh they were not entitled. The Credit Mobilier is not a party to ibe suit as n corporation, (but as individuals, the management of tho Union Pacific and Credit Mobllior being essentially in tbo bands of the same parties, who divided tbo proceeds of their joint scheme. Tho Government seeks to restore the affairs of tho Company to tho condition con templated by tbo laws of Congress authorizing and assisting in tho construction of tho rood, so that not only innocent stockholders may bo pro tected and secured, but the Company strength ened In order that it may discharge its obliga tions to tho Government by tho payment into the Treasury of 5 per cent of tho receipts of tho rood os a fund with which, in connection with tho amounts withhold by tho Government for transportation, to repay tho interest advanced by tho United States, and ultimately tho princi pal of tho bonds.

Tho published statement that complaint in re gard to the recent awards for Indian supplies la Now York City bad assumed such gravity as to be brought by Secretary Delano to the attention of the President, and that tho President had ordered tho execution of tho contracts to bo suspended, ponding investigation, is denied on official authority. Secretary Delano Bays the facts aro that eomo bidders having claimed that awards should bo mado to them, ho referred those complaints to tho Commissioner of Indian Affairs for report, which has not vet been prepared, but will,when mode,ho carefully exam ined by the Boorotary. It is now known, how ever, that tho published statement as to tho amount of difference between tho bids accepted and those of tho complaining parties aro exag gerated, and tho reports that Secretary Delano boa brought tho matter to tho uotico of the President, and that tho President has given any orders in the premises, is a fiction.

Tho True State of Facta About tho Congressional Conference——Tho Southern Excursion. Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune , St. Lotus, May 16. —After a day of confusion and festivity, it has boon definitely arranged that tho Congressional party and other invites shall leave at 7:45 a. m. to-morrow, on tho Atlantic & Pacific Lino, for Springfield, whore they will take supper, and whatever reception the citizens think proper to afford, and spend tho night; dinner at Yionta, on Saturday. Prom Yloutat tho party will proceed by tho Missouri & Kansas Pacific, through tho Indian Territory to Denison, whore they will arrive Saturday night. Galves ton will bo reached on Monday. Thence their Journey is uncertain. Some will return and others will go to Now Orleans, and farther than that point no definite arrangement has boon made various interests having come into con flict unexpectedly. A mooting, attended by some Senators and Representatives, and citizens, was hold this morning for the purpose of passing certain reso lutions, as tboso of tho Congressional Conven tion. The mooting being convened in tho latter name, the resolutions woro passed; but your correspondent assorts that there was no organiza tion as a Congressional Convention or oven of a formal gathering of representatives in any shape, and inquiry of several loading ropresout tivos, made with tbo view of ascertaining in what light they regarded tbo meeting, elicited confirmation of that view from them. They au thorize tho statement that tho representatives, as such, neither organized nor passed resolu tions, except informally to acknowledge the un bounded hospitality of tho fit. Louis Merchants' Exchange Committee. Tho resolutions may 'possibly bo telegraphed over the country under the false pretence of having tho approval of tbo Congressional Convention, and it is proper that tbo rodder should understand what Uioy really amount to. They aro oa follows : Resolved, That wo regard tho completion of tho James River and Kanawha Canal, tho cherished scheme of Us author, Qcorgo Washington, connecting as it will tho waters of tho Atlantic with tho groat Mia sleßipl Valley, as worthy tho prompt and a profound consideration of Congress, and that wo cannot too warmly express our admiration for tho Stato of Vir ginia in surrendering her interest, twelve millions of dollars, in this improvement in order that tbo same may bo dedicated to tho people of tho whole country to insure them cheap rates of transportation by water lino to tho Atlantic Coast, Resolved, That we recommend to Congress tbo con sideration of tho Atlantic and Great Western Canal, believing It to bo an enterprise of national interest, and which, when completed will bo of a vaiuo com mensurate with its coat. JUeolced, That tho Fox and Wisconsin Rivers Ira- Srovotncnt has already bocomo a national work, and i deserving of tho continued recognition of Congress. Whilst thoso resolutions woro really paesod by tho Merchants’ Exchange mooting, yot, owing to tho confusion under which the mooting was or ganized, several representatives have boon in duced to look upou thorn as giving formal ex pression of tho opinions of tho supposed Con vention. There never was a mooting so muddled and so dangerously constituted. It was announced tho preceding day as tho last meeting of tho Con gressional Convention, and is everywhere spoken of as such, and whilst the Committee was care ful to have tho report in tho papers hero road that tho Merchants' Exchange had determined on those resolutions rolativo to proposed na tional works of great importance to bo incor porated with thoso previously presented, yet they aro so mixed up with tho proceedings of the so-called Convention that any ono reading the report, and all thoso outsiders who havo hoard tho matter discussed, cannot take them to mean anything else than that tho Convention has already pledged itself to tho approval of the gigantic works fit. Louis proposes to make Con gress carry out. Tho names of upward of a hundred Congress men and others ore enrolled for the Southern excursion. Fivo or six Senators, whoso names it is not possible to ascertain to-night, are also of tho party. Tho citizens' excursion was largely attended, tho steamer Groat Republic being crammed. Tho only particular in which tho trip differed from other junketings of tho kind Is tho fact that tho rush for tho luuoh-room began before tho steamer cast off moorings and aid not end until she was alongside tho wharf again, and that almost every bottle of champagne on board was consumed. A banquet to tbo Congressional party was given at 8 o'clock, and was proving a rather noisy affair. Tho speeches, like all the speeches that havo boon made during the Convention, aro remarkable only for their general eloquence, and tho conspicuous absence of anything like a pledge to sustain tho projects now beginning gradually to develop.

On an Investigation of tbo charge, tbe lady was com pletely and fully exonerated from tho charge, which proved to have been made out of molico. • Failing in bis'base design, he resolved to. toko hor life, and to this end ho stole into the dining-room, whore tho, lady was at dinner, drew a revolver, aimed deliberately, and fired. A gentleman sitting near him saw his movements in time to throw up tho weapon, and thus fortunately saved hor life. The assassin was at once arrested and lodged in jail to await trial.

Special Dispatch to Tho Chicago Tribune, Madison, Wls., May IB.— An, oflloinl notifica tion from the Milwaukee & St. Paul Ballway Company of Us unwillingness to accept tho St. Croix & Superior land-grant was received by Gov. Washburn to-day r dated at Milwaukee yesterday, and signed by President Mitchell. It contains about 760 words, but really only bno idea. Tho reason assigned for refusing to accept tho grant is, that so groat a doubt rested of tho State's title to the land in question that it la doomed impossible to obtain moans to complete tho rood. It Is agreed that tho act of Congress granting lands for building a railroad from St. Croix Bivor to Lake Superior' expired In 1809, that Congress refused to renew tho grant or extend the time for building roads, and that whllo Judge Miller, In tho United States Circuit Court for Minnosota.hold that tho legal title to tho lands were in tho State of Wis consin till otherwise determined by a decree of court or act of Congress, that decision had boon appealed from to tho United States Supreme Court; but tho Company is Informed that tho Secretary of tho interior , and Attorney-General do not regard Judgo Mil ler’s decision sound. This appeal and ihoso views, it is claimed, wero not known till After the adjournment of tho Legislature. Tho appeal, however, was announced in tho puulio prints, and referred to in Gov. Washburno's annual message, when ho also stated that tho ■■ Supremo Court hod made a decision in regard to tho Ohorokoo lands, involving a similar question on a liko matter, and it was also published on tho Gov ernor's authority that the Attorney-General had declined .to render an opinion as to tho State's titlo to tho land, . because tho o&so was trying before tho United States Supremo Court. All tho facto on which tho dec lination of tho grant is based should havo boon known to tho Company when its managers woro making such dosporato efforts to secure tho grant last winter. Tho action of tho Company, and its flimsy excuse, therefore, are calling down upon it tho bitter exclamations of somo who woro its warmest friends last winter. It is not likely that any other company will accept tho grant Under the conditions widen tho Milwaukee ompany had In tho law which must govern the disposition of tho grant, and there is considers* bio talk of an extra session of tho Legislature. Tho ofllcial returns of tho voto for Supremo Judgo is published, giving Orsamua Colo 127,770, to 1,725 for all others. THE 11 O’CLOCK ORDINANCE# How It Was Obeyed. As stated elsewhere, the 11 o’clock ordinance wont into offset last night. Tho saloon-keepers soomed everywhere aware of this faat, and closed their ealoons promptly at tho hour. Thoro wore no violations of tho ordinance eo far as reported by tho police, . and saloon keepers scorn willing to obey tho law. They say, however, that a day of retribution is coming, whon tho high-handed morality which first produced tho Sunday law and now puts into oporatiou an ordinance by which tho saloons avo compelled to closo at 11 o’clock will ho nut down. But until that tirpo comes they will obey tho law. Tho offoot upon tho streets was apparent In tho perfect quietude which reigned oven at 12 o’clock. Midnight hummers wore seldom mot with. Tho polico need to watch closely tho business of tho many Italian restau rants, all of vwhich are furnished with a bar. Those places, under tho guise of eating-houses, are in offcot no bettor than tho ordinary saloons. To-morrow night may witness a loss strict ob servance of tho law. BURGLARY. About 5 o’clock yesterday afternoon the bouse of Mr. Alonzo Ililutiugton, No. 81G Indiana avo was entered by suoak-tmovos. Tho rooms of tho Rev. C. 0, Parsons wore visueu. ana about SIOO worth of jewelry and clothing taken. 'Several other rooms' wore also inspected, and about the same amount taken. MISCELLANEOUS. '• Tho Preabytoriau University of Kentucky iato bo located at Anchorage. A camel and an elephant, belonging to a circus, wore tied to a treo near Fishldll Landing, tho other day, when the express train came along. Tho camol fainted away, but tho elephant started off with tho treo. Michigan saloons aro fitted up with “ whir ligigs, n contrivances by which tho customer gets his drink without seeing tho seller. As tho lat ter cannot readily bo convicted where they aro used, tbo Legislature bits made the owner of tho building responsible. —There is a good doal In tho remark tho Buffalo Express—' “lt Is all very well to talk about tho dignity of tbo United States; but tho truth Is, Indiana are a good doal Uko humblo boos, and tbe man that stands on his dignity with a nest of bumblo bees is a fool.” .—A woman’s rights paper (La Donna ) is pub lished at Venice, and is edited by Mile. Bcccarl. In a lato number it is stated that an application to tbo Italian Government to admit women to the great universities' of Turin and Romo was met with this reply: There is no need of a law to permit women to enter tho colleges, siuco there is no law which prohibits their doing so.” Upon tills hint tho Italian girls have acted, and four of them are now attending a course of phi losophy in Romo. —A Kansas paper indulges in what looks very liko a practical suggestion about tbo treatment of tho noble but troublesome rod znau. Briefly it is this: When you once got him on a reserva tion, fafco away his horse. y * Without bis horse,” says this Kansas oracle, “ a plains Indian has lost his manhood; and what courage ho may have had on a fleet pony very promptly oozes out of him when ho takes to tho ground, wears moccasins, makes long marches, and gets his toes sore. In such plight ho will not waudor far from tho Government rations.” —ln Judgo Knight’s court in St. Louis, tho other day (as the St. Louis Times relates), nu merous divorce suits had boon tried, and, after patiently listening for several hours. His Honor became disgusted and summarily ordered an ad journment. Tho same thing once happened in the Massachusetts Supremo Court. That sound but eccentric old Judge, Metcalf, bad been hear ing divorce cases all day. In the course of tho afternoon ho began to grow fretful aud snappish, until ho astonished everybody by exclaiming: “I think that wo have done enough of this dirty work for ouo day. Mr. Crier, adjourn tho court until to-morrow morning at 0 o’clock.” And it was accordingly adjourned. —That is a singular view which is taken by a Baltimore lawyer of a mania for poisoning, Ho thinks that when a man or woman poisons a human being without doleotion t in ninety-nine cases out of a hundred tho poisoner becomes insane. His reasoning is that ouo successful crimo of this sort begets such a sense of power and of ability to remove at will ovory human obstacle, so blunting, at tbo same timo, tbo sym- E ethics, 11 that in nearly ovory caso tho mind ecomos warped, and tho poisoner Is ready with tho deadly draught to avongo tho most trifling disrespect or wrong.” Lot those who think of poisoning anybody take yarning. —A most susceptible young gentleman was Frank Chandler, late o: Mo. First of all, ho fell in lovo with Lis father’s young house keeper and secretly married hor. But upon tho avowal of this union old Mr. Chandler declared, wo don’t know by what authority, that ho did not approve of it; and so tho wife wont home to hor family. But it is of no uso to waste sympathy upon young Chandler, for ho straightway foil in lovo with another lady, and wanted to marry hor before the divorce proceedings wore finished. To this the old gentleman naturally objected, which so discouraged tho youth that ho took a groat doso of laudanum and is no longor in flesh. The father is one of tho wealthiest fanners of that region. —'Woman ns a voter is an accomplished fact In England. Every woman who occupies a dwelling in any city or town of England, Ireland, Wales, or Scotland, has a voice for Alderman, and town officers in general. Under Mr. Forster’s now act, in England widows and spinsters who pay rateshavo votes in tho election of School Boards. In Iroland, ovory woman who pays any sum os poor-rate has a vote In tho election of poor guardians. It la said that the women exorcise those rights heartily, aud hi many oases where saloon keepers represented tho wards of cities in municipal position they wero signally defeated by the votes of tho women. In London, as is well J|rs» Garrett Anderson, M. D., is ono of-the most useful mombom of iho School Board, and the same is Into of Miss Becker, of Mhnohoslor. Tho right of suffrage seems to have boon conferred on tlho pnnoiplo that whore wdraen pay a tox for any object they shall have iho right to d volco in tho 'disposition of tho funds. A Family Foml»A Woman (UIA Foil* Itlcn Sli.ota From the IlilUboro (Mo.) Democrat. . For oomo weeks past a foud has existed bo* iwoon tho members of the family of Lem. Wide* man, of Big Blvor township. The family seems to have boon about evenly divided against Itself, iho old man and his sons-in-law on 0116 side, and tho old lady and her sons on iho other. What first disturbed the pleasant relations that exist ed for so long between tho old folks, wo do not know, and in fact do not oaro to, know. At any rate, they separated, tho old lady and her sons retaining possession of tho farm. Mr. Widoman rented or gave tho farm to his two sona-ln-law, Alfred Williams and Dick Boyal, and then a strife began for tho possession of tho farm, or, as tho Modoca would say, tho lava hods. Tho first regular engagement occurred about two weeks ago, hut tho only weapons used at that time wore hoop-polos, ana nobody was very seri ously hurt. Tho party that got worsted in this engagement made some violent threats, and tho other party, in order to secure his own life, had his belligerent hrothor-in-law arrested on a peace warrant. Tho trial was had at Hillsboro, last week, and resulted in tho acquittal, by iho Jury, of tho prisoner. The next regular engagement occurred last Saturday at tho office of 'Squire Found, on Big Blvor, whither ono side had taken tho other to hoye matters settled by law. While tho Consta ble was off on tho hunt of a jury, tho belliger ents kept up a war of words, until finally ono of them got worked up to iho fighting point, when, drawing a pistol, ho proceeded to empty Us con tents ac the opposition. In tho Crowd wore throe six-barreled pistols, which wore all emptied In a short space of time. ' Tho casualties, as far as wo have boon able to learn, woroi Old Mrs. Widoman, shot in tho arm. a pretty had wound; James Widoman in tho log, flosu wound, not serious: Alfred Will iams, In the side, a severe wound, hut not such as to disable him: Frank Widoman, struck on tho head with a oluW not known how badly ho is hurt yot; Dick Royal, supposed to have received a hallin hls.hlp, hut his business has “laidroll ing" since, auu tho officers, have not boon ahlo to got him, and Isbam Williams, a bystander, shot in tho head ; tho hall entered the temple and passed round aud made its exit at the hack of tho oar.
