The'rcadlnc caused much amusement. Mr. ASHLEY said, of all falsehoods manufac tured and sent from this city by reckless, stupid maligners, this story was the most silly.

Certainly notblrg was farther from his thoughts or the thoughts ot those be bad consulted than the idea of dabbing General Grant m the dark.

FROM SPRINGFIELD. (Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.) SmiscnELD. 111., February 7. THE NEW STATE CAPITAL. • The Joint Committee ou Public Building*, at al the meeting last eycnlng, decided to report In favor of building a new State :he preposition made by tbe city of Springfield and comity of Sangamon, that is. to take the present State House and tbe ground on which it stands for the sum ol $200,000, and to deliver to the Slate what is known as tbe Mather lot, containing about nine acres, free from all encumbrance, the i ntlre amount which Springfield and Sangamon propoe -• to give footing up about two hundred and sixty thousand dollars. Tbe two hundred thousand dollars for the present Stale Home arc to hi paid in two equal annual Installments, on the first Idaya of April' in )c€S and lbC9. Tbe Commissioners i:arocd In Ihc I*lll to superintend tbe conetrnctlou ol tb> new Stale House arc Phillip Wadsworth, of Chicago;. Ex-Mojor Smith, of Springfield; Dr. Itobt-rt lioal, of Piorla; Jas. C. Robinson, ol Clark, and Wm. Vaudwacr, of Christian. The first three named arc Republicans. the latter two Democrats. The amrmit to be expend-d in building the State House is not to exceed three mlitons of dollars, Ihc lull amount of which will, without doubt, be exhausted before the work 1* completed. Tills bill ought not, and Ido not be lieve ever will pass the General Assembly. If It does Ibe “talc la swtnd’cd out of at least a quar ter ol n million of dollars.

The bill to compel the Illinois Central Railroad to at-II their lands wlibln* two years, or to tax them after that time, was reported from tbe Judl ilary Commlltee ol the Senate, Mid. by a decided veto recommitted to the same committee, where ttwill probably sleep for the remainder of the steeioD. rni WAnznocßi sol. The great fight, the people vs. the warehouse monopoly, came off Ibis morning IntheSenalo, < n the repoit of the Itailroad Committee, substi tuting a new Dill for Iho Eastman flail. The new bill contained neatly all of ibe old provisions, ox- cept the sixteenth and cigblccctb sections, which were omitted. This was the play of Hamlet with Hamlet left ont by particular rcqncs'. To satisfy Oolorcl Eastman, the eighteenth section of the rid bill wa* added to the new subject, to the ap proval ot the Senate, by a rote of 32 to 8. Senator Fori then moved that the sixteenth section cf th? tld bill be aleo added to the row. After one of the sharpest debate) ot the session, Colonel Fort’s notion was carried by a vote of 14 to 11, which is a tout vole on the final onstage of the bill. The following la the six* tcectb section as amended by Colonel Fort: Sec. IC. Any ocean or persons who shall be the owner or owners of avy public warehouse situated w ithin one mile of any railroad track in Ibis State, shall have the same rights that are not£. possessed by railroad companies in this State to condemn the land and properly of any person or of any railroad company, or to nsc the streets and allev* of any incorporated town or cltr, the con sent of the corporate authorities thereof being first obtained, for the purpose of laying a branch track connecting bis or their said warehouse with snch railroad, ana shall have authority to construct and maintain such branch track, and when each branch track has bcenso constructed, each rail* road company wild whose track it connects shall bare the nebt to pa-n their cars over it and from snch warehouse without charge, and as long a- 1 maintained be said warehouse-man such branch track shall be considered as a part of tbc sack of snch railroad, and it shall be tbc dntyof such talhoad company to deliver at such warehouse any and all curs which may be consigned thereto, and *o remote f*om tne warehouse snch cars as n ay be taken thereto for transportation from said wan bouse, and in tbc case of tbc refusal orths neglect of snch railroad company or companies to deliver grain or cars so consigned, or to receive lor transpoitaUon to such warehouse grain nr cars »o consigned »nch rollrosd companies shall be liable to th; person owning such warehouse for two months’ storage of ail such grain so consigned or refused, and also liable to such watchouso*man and to the owner of snch gram for all other damages either of them wav have sustained by reason of snen refusal or neglect of tbc railroad company, including all lawful expenses incurred by him or them in tbc prosecution ot any suit or suit'* against such rail road company to recover tbc penalties or enforce (be provisions ot this act." The bill was then ordered to a third reading. and nolens the monopolists can buy np mo Sena* tors during Ite next twenty-four hoars, the MU as amended will pass. This action virtually puts Eattman'a bill on Its final passage, and ta a prrat victory over the monopolists. Mr. Mack, their champion, raved nr a stormed terribly. The ware house-men wete furious, and threatened every thing and everybody. The profanity of tae fa mous Flanders army was extreme mildness in comparison with them. Oou ot them even went so far as to puhhcly proclaim thai he would give two mammoth Chicago warehouses to defeat the bill. He was road then.

I may rdd that the ptople,whoßctlchlaaretohc protect® J by this I,IP, will be glad to know the names and scan the faces or the two Senators wbo take the magnifi cent bids offered by the monopolists, and chest j the people out of this great reform. | sox to rcKisn in* cat** or abobtiou.
