Tar pbebidext’s kewlt-tledcxd flax. Tbe result of the consultations of Southern men with the President, very properly appeared Oral in the Richmond papers. It can be stated positively that the propositions were discussed in Cabinet meeting, and agreed to by a majority. Secretary Stanton does not approve. The President also gave the Southerners to understand that their am nesty should also jorm the clement of a plan or provision for preventing their payment lor staves, which was purposely omitted, as was the clause giving Congress power to enforce the amendment. The matter has caused no excite ment. The only effect appears to be to strengthen the friends of the Congressional amendment. I Congress will yield nothing on acconut of Uiis I proposition, which, instead of astonishing any | one fell dead the moment It was announced. The Richmond Krujmrer presents its objections to the measure, and thinks the use of the terms I •*in^u^eclion ,1 and “rebellion” disrespectful. It contends that the clause regarding the debt in curred by the insurrection or rebellion does not 1 apply to the Confederate debt.

The railroad Tariff BUI came up In the noose this mornlnp as a special order, the question being on the passage ot the bill repotted by General Unrlbut from the Railroad Committee. Mr. Conk llnc offered a resolution striking oat the sections ol the bill which possess any force. Upon his reso lotion he rehearsed a portion of the speech which he has Mrherto delivered on several occasions in defence of the sacred rights of chartered monopo lies. Mr. Conkllae nttere his opinions la an oiacular and dogmatic manner, and treats all who oppose him as very small fry. He Insisted that the popular clamor against railroad monopolies I was one in which the people sometimes indulge, I and that a hrlrfpeiiod would bring them to their I senses again. General finrlbut followed in a powerful eperc'o to reply to Sir. Cockling, lie thoronchly demolished the fatoc law and logic of that gentleman. The speech la universally ac knowledged to he the strongest ot the session. At the conclusion ot his speech he was warmly I applauded. Mr. Parker followed General Bnrl -1 hut briefly.

When Mr. Taylor's name was called, under I I the privilege of explaining his vote he made a j I speech against the bill. The bill was ordered to I 1 a third reading by a vote of fifty-three to thirty* I I two.
