[Special Despatch to tne Chicago Tribune.] Washington, February 17. reconstruction in the senate. The debate upon reconstruction In the Senate yesterday was wearisome, the occas ion done giving it much interest. The bitter speech of Mr. Doolittle was about the only exception, and was regarded as an indication that the President would not yield any part -of bis policy. During the even.ng scs.-ion the galleries and lobbies were filled till ten, 'when Garrett Davis obtained the fleor, and speedily tblancd both. A lew moments be* fore midnight Sherman offered a substitute for tbc bill and pending amendments, which had been agreed upon iu a caucus of Renub- Ilcau Senators held In the morning, at which the whole subject was referred to a commit tee of seven—Senators Fessenden, Sumner, Trambnll, Sherman, Har ris, Howard and Perelinghuyaen. Tbc object was to harmonize the Republican side of the chamber, if possible, oa the basis of the Military Bill, with the House amend menst and a few other changes in the House bill. The result woe to amend the bill as it came from the House in two particular?, giv ing tbe assignment of Military Commission ers In Southern Districts to the President in stead of General Grant, and striking out tbe provisions prohibiting United States Judges issuing writs of habeas corpus in rebel States. Tbe Blaine amendment, in its modified form, was then superadded as the last section. A motion was afterwards made in the Senate that In all capital cases the President’s approval should be necessary. At midoigbt tbc Democrats moved to adjourn, urging that Sunday work was not proper, bat on being- voted down proceeded to occupy tbe whole time till 0:39 in the morning, the Republicans patiently waiting for them to become exhausted. Tbc final vote, 29 to 9, does not indicate the real strength of tbe bill, as several Republicans were absent. It it. understood that the whole Republican side, Sumner possibly ex cepted, would have voted In the affirmative. The West Virginia Senatorsvoted aye. The bill will go to the House tbe first thingMou day moming.aud be taken from tbc Speaker’s table at once. the president's position. The President, in consultation with high officials on Friday, stated positively that he utterly repudiated the statement that he Lad offered terms of compromise, but that on the'contrary he held firmly to his policy. -Justice to a part of the Republicans drawn Into the late meeting demands the explana tion that they were distinctly and repeated ly assured that the Fcrsidcnt authorized tbe parsons who assumed to act on his part, to say that Johnson was willing to agree on the Constitutional.

Not withstanding the President's positive denials ill* tme be has been a party *.o creating tbe impression that he was ready to abandon his plan for that of Congress.

Some months before, when bo signed the pledge, he raised himself to his fall height, . for ho was free. Although be had considered himself a moderate drinker, it was published throughout the land that he was a drunkard. There was some truth and error In this. He had the falling, when drunk, of letting everybody know it. His speeches were not frequent but long and lond. The great Commonwealth of Illinois had for twenty-flve years honored him in all public positions and ho bad now prom ised that State and all who loyed him, Kate and the children, that he would never more touch, taste or handle the andean thing. He intended to fight it out ou that line till the last hour of nis existence. In conclusion, he read a cheering and joyous letter from his wife, lu response to the good news that he had signed the pledge, which moved many in the audience to tears.

SHERMAN the title of the bill was amended so as to read, “An act for the more elllcieut government of the rebel States.” At 0:30 Sunday morning tUo Senate ad* joumed. The lolloping is Sherman’s substitute for Stevens’ bill as it passed the Senate: The preamble declares that no loyal State Governments or adequate protection for life or property exists in the rebel States of Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina. Georgia, Alabama. Mississippi, Looisiana, Florida, Texas, and Arkansas, and that it is necessary that peace and good order should be enforced until loyal and republican State Governments can be legally established. The first section divides the States named Into five military districts, as in the original bill. Section two makes it the duty of the Pres ident to assign to the command of each dis trict an officer of the army not below the tank of Brigadier General, aud detail a sulli cient military force to enforce his authority within the district, Ac. Section three makes it the duty of snch officer to protect all persons In their rights of person and property, to suppress insur rection, disorder and violence, and to pun ith or cause to be punished all disturbers of public peace and criminals. He may allow local civil tribunals to try and punish of fenders, or the organization of committees or tribunals tor that purpose. All Interfer ence and State authority is declared null and void.

THE BILL TO BCTLD A NEW STATS not/SB. The Senate, on Saturday afternoon, passed tbe bill reported by the Committee on Pub lic Buildings, to build a new State House, by a vote of thirteen to twelve—the same vote by which it was passed to a third reading tbc day before. Two Commissioners were added to the number, making sev en in all. Tbc two new Com missioners are virtually Springfield men, giving this city three, and fonr to the re mainder of the State. The amount to com mence with was Increased to $750,000, an ad dition of $250,000 to tbc sum named original ly in the bill. It was reported to the House in a few minutes after it passed tbe Senate, and will be called np on special order on Tuesday. Its friends boast to-night that it has secured fifty-six votes In the House, and they will put it through on that day. I think not, but I may be mistaken. If they succeed it will demonstrate tbe fact that while our representatives here are unwilling to vote one or two millions, or even a much .smaller sum, to start s great and vitally es sential public improvement, they will vote for at least five millions to ornament and popularize the city of Springfield. Let tbe people remember tbls fact wbcu they are cslied upon to pass judgment upon the con duct ol their representatives. OMNIBUS. There is a grand opening in this Omnibus business for a man to make himself immortal, if he will but accept tbe opportunity. This omnibus system Is the moststnpendousfraud ever practised upon a confiding people. It is filled with corruption which hourly in creases by reason of the meat upon which it feeds. If only there con® be found one Representative or Senator In our General Assembly who would stand up and boldly resist Us farther progress, he would render himself immortal. It inflicts con tinual disgrace and almost irretrievable wrong upon the people, Oue man can de feat it. He has only to object to its opera tions, and the thing is done. No bill can go into an omnibus except by unanimous con sent, and one recusant compels tbe vote to be taken on each bill, and not until after It lias been read in detail. I repeat, here is a chance fora man to render himself immortal. Who will do it f I fear no one here. carers. The Republican members of the General Assembly had a caucus last night. The at tendance was thin and little or nothing was done of any public importance. The ques tion of final adjournment was taken up, bat laid aside without any action by which any judgment could he formed. A shrewd mem ber present offered to wagera small sum that the two booses would adjourn at tbe latter end of tbls week, until next December. I think he is wrong In his prediction. The committee appointed to get up a represent ative appoitionment bill reported, bat it was discovered to contain several marked de fects and it was referred back for amendment, to be reported again to-morrow evening. I am of the opinion that no bill can be report ed upon which the two houses will be able to agree. If it were possible for each mem ber to fix a district In accordance with bis own wishes, I have no doubt that a new ap portionment would be made at once; bat with tbe present diversity of views tbe thing seems impossible. RAILROAD BILLS. General Hurlbut’s Railroad Bill, which passed the House about the first day of the month, and Senator Black’s bill on tbe same subject, arc now in tbe pockets of that dis tinguished Senator, and have been for tbe past two weeks. He has thus far defeated every attempt to draw them from their teclualon by thwarting every effort to get together a quorum of tbe VOL. XX* Senate Railroad Committee. It hoi been Hack’s intention to kill them both by throt tling them in, this way, but General Fuller caught the honorable and single-hearted Senator in a trap on Saturday afternoon, by Introducing a resolution which passed by a vote of thirteen to • twelve, per emptorily ordering .him to report the hills back to-morrow morning. Mack saw he was caught, and. for a few moments a red glow of fierce anger overspread his usually placid lace, and.then all was calm again. To-day be bas been bard at work la an honest endeavor to win over one of the Senators who voted for the resolution,’ In order to carry a reconsideration on to-mor row morning. Whether he has succeeded, I am not informed, but as ho rare ly foils in this class of di plomacy, I think it will be sale, to bet on his success. If he does, two Senators have declared to mo that they will resist by parliamentary strategy from now until the end ol the session, every omni bus and every other attempt to override the legitimate order ofbusincss. If they adhero to their resolution, the nice schemes burled in five or six hundred bills will be dcomed to the tomb of the Capulets. r BECOMI DUSPATHU. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Springfield, February 17—10 p. m. RINGS. I hear to-night of tba organization of a number of new rings, during this pleasant holy Sabbalb day, for mutual plunder. The new State House question is the great cen tre of most of them, and the parties to ail talk confidently ol success. They embrace the new State House, the Industrial Universi ty, the Cairo Penitentiary and Metropolitan Police Bill, the new Chicago Horse Railroad, the new Chicago Dock and Tier Company, &c. In these rings are writ ten tbo names of many gentlemen of whom I had hoped bet ter things, and I am almost tempted to dis believe the strong evidence which places them In such position. But from the con taminating influence of the political and moral miasma which rises from this Stale centre, few escape. I under stand that the first performance of two of these rings, combined for the purpose, will he to jump the Canal and River Improve ment BUI, which is the special order for to morrow at ten o’clock, and pat it behind both, their day being on Tuesday. This will be resisted by the friends of the Canal Bill with all the power ibey can apply, and thus hope to defeat the ringites. As I have said above, the friends of the new capital Jcluim to have fifly-six voles for their project. Their list embraces many names from whom I had hoped better things. You would hardly believe that Chi cago Representatives would entirely ignore this Canal Bill and sustain the capital swin dle with all the feeble power they possess, but euvU Is the case. RBIDEBT. I ought to have stated, in my despatch last night, that one of the Cook County Sen ators was olfered twenty-fire thousand dol lars of stock in the Washington Street Hor.-e Railroad scheme if he would sustain that measure. He declined the offer. DOCK AND PIER COMPANY. I understand that the new Dock and Pier Company propose to submit the question to a vote of the people of Chicago. TUB CANAL DILL. This bill will be the special order for to morrow at ten o’clock. I might add that its friends despair of carrying It through. The rings which 1 have mentioned, formed for common stealing, of course, will drive every measure of this kind, intended for the good of the State, oat into the cold. POOR JOE PORREST is literally played out. He has all along been laboring under the melancholy delu sion that the sojourners here were enjoying his stale attempts at witticisms in the col* urns of the Times, whereas they weic simply laughing at Lis asinine antics as second clown in tbe basement lobby of the Leland House. Joe’s early friends refuse longer to stand drinks, and his melancholy days have come. Alas I poor Joe! INDIANA LEGISLATURE. I Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribane. I Indianapolis, February 17.

THE NEW STATE lIOIJ3B. Springfield received a scare this morning, in tbc Bouse, on tbc State Capital question, which threw it Into a flutter and correspond ingly warmed np tbc hopes of tho Decatur people. Tbc Committee on Public Build ings reported back tbe bill to remove the capital to Decatur, with a recommendation that it be indefinitely postponed. Hr. Butin, of Dccatnr, tbe champion of that people, moved that tho report of tho com-* mittce bo laid on tbe table, which was carried by a vote of 43 to 37, and tbc bill was then made the special order for Tuesday next, tho same hour at which the bill to provide lor the building of a now State House comes up for consideration. This disposition of tbe Decatur bill was what the Springfield people did not anticipate, and It causes an unpleasant sensation. 1 told them, several days ogo, that the result of tbe paltry bid which they bad made for a now State House would end in failure, and the action of the House to-day seems to confirm my pre diction. I find that tbe almost universal ocntlincct among tbe members Is to postpone tbe whole subject until a more convenient season. A large number of the members never expect to be relumed here by Ihrir constituents, and they think their successors : nre entitled to no better accommodations than has fallen to their lot. Nearly the whole afternoon, up to 7 o’clock, has been exhausted la the Senate in discussing the new State House question. Speeches were made by Messrs. Fuller, Fort, Mack, Eastman, Cohrs, Ward aud others, and the whole subject was covered by the discussion. Tbe most marked cpcccb was made by Colonel Fort. A large number of amendments Were offered and rejected, and tbe bill was finally ordered to a third read ing by a vote of 13 to 12. This has, in a measure, elevated the spirits of the Spring field people, which were cast down by tbs action of the House this morning. This bill may bo forced through tbe House, but I doubt it. Our Senators divided, upon tbe question—Eastoan voting for the bill and Ward against It. I might add that tbe men who are known In the Senate as the friend* of tbo monopolists, voted for tbe bill. TAXING CENTRAL RAILROAD LANDS. The hill whieli has hecu before the Senate for seme time to tax tho lands of the Illinois Central Railroad at the expiration of two years, was killed to-day hy an indefinite postponement. SWINDLES. A legion of swindles has boon put Into the two Hou«cs within the past week, and a large portion come from Chicago, and from about tho same parties. I will enumerate a few of them. The first la to incorporate tho Casino Park Association. The corporators arc Melville Fuller, J. S. Ham, David A. Gage, Philip Wadsworth and othew/hnd they propose to extend Michigan avenue from its present southern limit to Junction avenue, at which place a park of fifty acres —that is, a race track—ls to bo established. They are allowed to establish toll-gitoa and collect such tolls as may suit their dcslrei, on this extension of the avenue. One of the toll-gates, of course, will be located at ihe very starting point of their extended avenue. All the right* to lands, Ac., are in this bill, and tbe eorporatorsarc only required to obtain the consent of the Supervisors of tbo town In which thek t-chemc is to be located, to walk in and take possession. This Casino Park BUI treat through the House In one of thobigomni buses a few days since, without its charac ter being known. But there are men aOor it, wbo will chase it into Us hole. Anotlcr steal repotted to me is the Great Western Elevator Company. I have been unable b get sight of this bill, but I hear that it is of the same character, and was brought down here hy the same parties as the steal I hate detailed above. I am g’ad to hear that it don’t stand the ghost of a chance of gettiitf through cithT House. STATIONERY. The stationery question was up in tlo Home this afternoon, on a motion to concur with the Senate bill giving to each membtr SIOO worth of stationery, in the shape of gold pens, gold pencils, peu-knlvcs, memorandum books, sliver spoons, etc. Mr. Thorapsoi moved that the members take the SIOO ic cash instead of the trinkets. This was voted down. Amotion to concur with tho Senate hill was thcnirejected, by ayes, 23 ; noes, 50. riicstutijncry question is a delicate one to handle, but T suppose tho members will try tojsecure fl sufficiency of it or its equivalent before they adjourn. Special Correspondence of the Chlcigt Tribune.] THE WAREHOUSE BILL, Eastman’* "Warehouse BUI passed the House this afternoon as it came from the Senate by a unanimous rote. The bUI now only awaits the signature of the'Gorcrnor to becdme a law. This bill, os Is well known, is not all that the friends of reform desired, but it is a good deal betterthan none, and Is, beyond doubt, all that can bo got during the existence of the present General Assembly. TUB lIAILROAD BILL. General Harlbnt’s Railroad Tariff Bill, which passed the House more than a week since, is still in the grip of the Senate Rail road Committee, whence It probably will never escape. Its friends give up all hopes of its becoming a law until tho people de cide in a still more emphatic manner upon Us necessity. Mack’s bill, which means nothing, may possibly pass the Senate, but it don’t stand the ghost of a chance in the House. TUB EQUALIZATION DILL. The hill for an Act to amend tho Revenue Laws, and to establish a State Board for tho Equalization of Assessments, passed the House to a third reading this afternoon. There is no power given iu this bill to the assessors to fix a cash value to the property assessed, and in this respect it Is seriously defective; but the committee which pre pated the bill says there are constitutional difficulties in the way of putting that fea ture in a bill. The present bill marks cer tain progrew in tbo right direction, and will correct the swindling inequalities of the mode of assessment now practised !n the various counties of the State. Colonel Payne deserves honorable mention for tho intelli gent manner in which he has prepared this bill, and for Ibe energy he has displayed In carrying it to a final passage. GAS IN CHICAGO.' The Gas Bill, after being reported from the Committee on Corporations, was recommit ted to the same committee this morning, in pursuance of a written request to that effect, obtained by the request and Influence of the gas monopolists, who ore represented here in their strength, and hard at work to defeat the measure. Since the amendments which I tent you on Tuesday were added to the bill, it has been acceptable to all but the monopolists. The Cook County delegation— with a single exception—are for the bill. Although the Committee on Corporations was instructed to report the hill back as soon as possible, there is great danger that this important measure of reform will be de feated. The same means, and many of the same Instruments, which defeated the will of the people of Chicago two years ago on the matter of the Horse Railway Bill,may effect the same result ns to this important meas ure, unless they move in the matter in their fall strength, and let their will be made known. Let petitions bo sent, and let com mittees from the people come down here and look after their interests,, or the gas mo nopolists will defeat every attempt to allow' tbe people to vote upon this vital question to the Interests of Chicago. I repeat, let the people move in the matter at once. PA&DONS. A bill was put intettho Senate some three weeks since, which is of considerable im portance, but which has not, I believe, jet come from the hands of the committee to which It was referred. The bill was pre pared at the suggestion of Governor Oglesby. It is to define the manner of seeming par dons, and provides that when' tbe friends of an; convict—not committed for a capital offense—wish to obtain pardon for him, they Shull cause to be printed is two newspapers published in the county where his convic tion was least one month befhrc tbe time named, ;Ucir Intention to Apply to the nh unt Gorerrbr, on a certain ,day, for hid pard"n. On that day oil persona can bare a hearing either for dr against tho pronoaed pardon, and on the issue thru mado-upthe Gorernor will make his decision. ThisbiU, it seems to me, ought to become a, law, and I trust that It will not be neglected until the closing hours of the session may endanger Us pas sage. TORNADO LEOI3LATIOX.

The Senate this afternoon run through that body tbc biggest omnibus over seen in this or any other country. Zt took nearly the whole day to load It, and contained two-hun dred and [Oily passengers. la other words, two hundred and fifiy lows, which it is ex pected the people Jof Illinois will regard with the same veneration, and obey with the same alacrity,as If they had been passed with the same routine and consideration usually accorded to wise and just laws, by wise aud just legislation. The House also put through a large omnibus, but it couldn’t begin to stand up with tbe Senate wagon. A BEPCPLICAN CAUCUS. The Republican members of the General Assembly had a caucus this noon in tbe State Library, and agreed to sustain the bill to create a Metropolitan Police in the city of Cairo, and also passed a resolution Instruct ing the committee appointed for that pur pose to report, at a meeting on Saturday evening next, an Apportionment Bill for the House of Representatives of the General Assembly only, on the aggregate oi ninety members. It Is understood that the com mittee have a bill nearly completed for the purpose named. THE PENITENTIARY QUESTION*, The Penitentiary Committee agreed, on Tuesday evening last, by a vote of six to five, to report a bill to lease the Peniten tiary for debt years from tbe first of January last, to Messrs. Bane, Burns, Hatch, Osborne & Co. I learn to-day that there Is some bitch in tbc matter, and that the report will not be made uutil after another session of tbe committee upon It. There la a very heavy lobby force here urging tbe granting of this lease to the parties named, but that will meet with opposition at all points.

The correspondent tho Chicago ZYmcigives the following version of the late conference between the President ond a number of Re publican members of Congress, referred to in our Issue of Saturday: Washington, February 16. TDD RECONSTRUCTION MOTWivt, The reported compromise, or conference rather, which has been going on between the President and certain Republican Congress men, has continued to excite tbe deepest interest, to-day, in all quarters—in as well as out of Congress. |The impression which it has created may be judged from the pas sage of the resolutions introduced in the House to-day by Mr. Wentworth, of Illinois, raising a special committee to Investigate the statements in this regard, made during the past few days in tbe newspapers. This committee will nyoceed at once to their work. It baa been deemed proper by those par ticipating in the efforts at a compromise to furnish for publication tbo facts in the premi ses, in order that the public may bare a cor rect idea of the situation. In the first place, tbo conference was not proposed by the President, nor by any member or Senator In Congress. The proposition was suggested by intermediate parties, holding no olficial position. They went to leading Republican Congressmen, of their own volition, ana positively without the knowledge of the President, and stated that, from their recent . informal conversations with the Execntire. they were satisfied that by slight mutual concessions, without any sacrifice of princi ple, Congress conld present a plan of recon struction to which the President would readi ly give bis assent. At first the members of Congress were not disposed to take them into consideration, on the ground that the Presi dent had authoriztd no such proposition to he made, but on second consideration, a meeting of twenty or thirty was called, at which the mediating parties were present. A dctoilcd conversation resulted in showing unmistakably that nothing short of the ratification of thtf pending Constitutional Amendment, and the adoption of universal suffrage by the Southern States would se cure reconstruction, and entitle them to representation in Congress; that In fact nothing else would be acceptable to Con gress. This conclusion was reported at once to the President, who stated in reply that he was willing, in order to se cure a settlement of the question, to yield bis position 'and favor of tlie ratifi cation of the pending Constitutional Amend ment, and, in addition, fb exact suffrage of the Southern States, as an additional condi tion precedent to their representation in Congress. The President did not lay any stress os to whether he favored impartial or universal suffrage, hot distinctly intimated Ihst the difference between the two would □ot prove material. The President’s conclu sions were then reported in turn to those Congressmen, who were earnestly assured that they bad been correctly given. It was then suggested that an interview be had at once with the President, and that a com mittee of the members be appointed to see Mr. Johnson, and learn from him, personally, these reported declarations. FA committee then waited on tbc President, and hi- substantially repeated the statement which he had made to the mediators. This was reported to all the members at a second meeting, who were present at tho first one, and it was looked upon as being conclusive. Tbc fact of the President’s having stated his concessions was communicated to between sixty and seventy members on the Repub lican side of the House, andnearly every one stated that they wonid vote fbr a bill em bodying them, if it could be brought before thellousc. If there is any point in doubt in tho whole matter, it Is thequestlon whether universal or Impartial suffrage shall he agreed to In connection with the Coi... iulional Amend ment. The way in which tbc agreement is to he carried out is now being illustrated in the protracted session of the Senate, where Ihc Blaine amendment is {lending, and which is virtually the plan that the President is de clared to have accepted. If the Senate adopt it, and it is agreed to by the House, the President is afforded the opportunity of making good the representation which bo has given to the members. In any event, It is expected that the views of the President will be communicated to Congress in a mes sage, either approving or vetoing a Recon struction Bill. Among the Republicans who have been present at the times of conferences alladed to are Messrs. Banks, Blair, Dodge, Bing ham, Delano, Hubbell, of Ohio, Kelcbaca of New York, and others of equal prominence. The statements above given are. derived from prominent and strictly responsible sources, and may be relied on. ANOTHER DESPATCH. VS AflinsoTON. Pebrta-yl6.
