An upper servant in the house'old of the Earl of Kenmare had received two an < nymous not<s. stating that s rising was planned in Killarney. and the 1c ders would reach there from Caboricreen that night.

One baud or Fenians, ninety lu number* look a horse f>«r their leader, O’Connor, and another bund stepped the mail on the road from Killaruey to Cahoricveeo, but did no ■violence to any one. In fact nowhere has life been taken or property destroyed- The Fenian plan was to attack Killarncy, capture the place, and then march to Cork; but the immediate dispatch of troops from Cork to Killaruey, by General Bates, and the celerity of Colonel Howard's movements defeated the whole plot and caused the insurgent bands to disperse. The horse of a Fenian courier was caught by the British troops. A couple of swords were picked up but no men captured.

The correspondent who gave the inyltation to the late compromise meetings has Indorsed the following statement of the origin of the movement: Some days ago, in a casual con versation between General EsteanlW. W. Warden, as to the probability of Congress' and the Executive agreeing onsoms basis or common plan by which the Southern States could speedily be restored to their proner relations in the Union, and their -loyal Rep. resentatives admitted to Congress, Messrs Eslc and Warden mutually expressed them selves satisfied, from their knowledge of Mr. Johnson’s views and the opinions of a num ber of the Rcpnhlican Congressmen, that to bring about a co-operation of the two branches of the Government in matters of reconstruction, probably npon the [basis of the Constitutional Amendment, proposed by Congress, and impartial or unqualified suf frage, it was only necessary for some one to go to work energetically and make known to Congress and the President that there was a probability of their being able to agree. At the first meeting held Messrs. Eete and Warden gave their Impressions as to the disposition and views now entertained by Mr. Johnson, bnt expressly declined any authority to speak for the President. They w ere therefore requested to make known to Mr. Johnson the opinions of the Congress men present, and to say to him that If he believed he coold meet them upon some such plan as that indicated, and was desirous of co-operating with them in their efforts to restore confidence in the Government and effect harmonious action hereafter between its subordinate branches they wonld be glad to meet and confer with him. The Presi dent was accordingly on the following day informed of what had taken place, and he instructed Messrs. Este and Warden to say to the Republican members that he desired to work with them in their laudable pur. looses, and he would be pleased to see them whenever they should deem it advisable to call. This message was deliv ered, and on Thursday evening a committee uf the Rcpnhlican Congressmen had an in terview of about two hours with Mr. John son, and at a subsequent Informal meeting on Friday night at the residence ol Mr. Dodge they made a report of what bad transpired between them and the President. Mr. they reported, bad been very trank, and Ircely gave his views, and made such promises of cooperation as were en tirely satisfactory to all present. THE RECONSTRUCTION BILL. The debate on the Reconstruction Bill In the House to-day has excited close attention irom all quarters. Many Senators were upon the floor. Before the session opened it was known that the bill would meet with serious opposition, and most of the members were in their scats at an early hoar. At the close of the Horning hour Mr. Stevens moved to proceed to the business on the Speaker's table, which brought up the Senate bill, and then moved a non-concurrence, and to ask a Committee of Conference. He took the position that the Senate bill really left the Governments of the rebel States in rebel bauds, and recognized a reorganization on a disloyal basis. Messrs. Boutwcll and Stokes, and Bromwell, of Illinois, supported his views, while Messrs. Blaiue, Bingham, Wilson, of lowa, Sebcnck and Garfield spoke earnestly in favor of the bill, contending that Congress had power to finally review the work of re construction, as prepared in the South nnder tbe bill. Mr. Blaine, at the close of hishonr, moved a concurrence, which motion had prece dence, and called the previous question. On ordering tbe main question, which approxi mated a test, the result was 103 to CO, indl eating the final passage of the bill by a small majority. Daring the recess, the Democrats held a caucus and agreed to try to amend tho bill, but to rote against it at last; they also de termined .to fillibueter unless time was given them to debate on reassembling. This became known, and it was agreed to let the debate go on to-night, and taken vote at It o’clock to morrow. The House is crowded to-night, and each speaker is limited to twenty minutes. Members have attempted to poll the House to-night, and conclude that thirty-four Democrats and about forty-seven Republicans will vo‘e against, giving eighty-one in the negative. The highest rote daring the day has been one hundred and sixty-three. This woo’d tire one or two majority for the bill, though other members may come in, and some in cluded above may change their minds. If the bill passes and is vetoed, the President can keep it from Congress till March Ist. Then the Democrats can defeat It by flllibustering, if they desire, and trine are threatening this if it becomes ne cessary. RANDALL’S ULTIMATUM. It is said that Randall has told the Presi dent that in case the latter did not agree to :he compromise measures, provided any were presented to him, by Congress, ho woaid tender his resignation at once. ‘*MY POLICY ” AGAIN. The President stated to prominent citizens r o day that he would like to act with Con gress, provided proper grounds could be dis covered, but that he should insist upon his policy as the ground of action. THE FRENCH MISSION. Inquiries have been made of Senators on the part of some of Mr. Johnson's friends to know, if in case General Dix is rejected as Minister to Fiance, Mr. Foster can be con firmed. NEGROES REGISTERED IN THE DISTRICT. The new registry of negroes in George 'own has resulted in the registration of be tween two and three hundred additional names, mostly from amongthoae rejected by he Mayor and Aldermen. The conserva tive citizens arc becoming very bitter as the day of election approaches, which Is fixed for the 33ih instant. THE GOLD DISTRICTS. The report of J. W. Taylor, ofMinnesota, communicated from the Treasury Depart ment to the House, will attract attention both from its information concerning New Mexico, Colorado and Montana, and tbe prominence given to the geld districts of tbe Alkghanies. Mr. Taylor, under the Secre tary’s Instruction, extends his inquiries to tbe Vermilion district, Minnesota, and to the gold mines of Saskatchawan, Canada,and Nova Scotia. Tbe important topic of tho me bods for desulphurizing ores Is referred to in general terms, and will be considered minutely in a subsequent report. It is the purpose of the Treasury Department to in vestigate the question of tbe production of precious metals very carefully. One of tbe House committees is preparing a report on the petition of a number of Mor mons in Utah, for the abolition of all laws against polygamy. THE NEW RADICAL JOURNAL.

A detachment of upwards of 000 were ordered cent to-day. AN APPEAL. r T*hA trill Ttprtliftlilr tnl’a a n The Government will probably take an appeal to the Supreme Court from the re cent decision of the Court of Claims, giving officers five dollars per month additional for f-ervact’s hire from May Ist, 1861, to March 3d,1865. TABIFF BILL—AMENDMENTS REPORTED TO THE WATS AND MEANS COMMITTEE.

Ivory is stricken out of the free list, and the privilege that the Pacific Railroad Company may use foreign iron Instead of American os now provided bylaw is denied. PROSPECTS OF THE DECONSTRUCTION BILL. Of tbe calculations made as to the vote on the Reconstruction Bill, one is that forty five Republicans and thirty-five Democrats, or eighty in all, will vote against, and eighty two Republicans in favor of It. Others say the House is equally divided. The majority either way will be very small.

The Agricultural College question was up in the House this morning, and debated at considerable length. On a motion to make It tbe order for three o’clock to-morrow af ternoon, Sir.

The whole subject, including all tbe bills, and Mr. Bonds’ amendment was made the special order for to-morrow afternoon. It is claimed by tbe opponents of tbe Champaign bid that this looks os if that bid was to be defeated be cause tbe Champaign champions insisted on immediate action, and were voted down.

THE CANAL BILL. The Canal and Internal Improvement Bill CHICAGO, TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 1867. came up this afternoon as a specul order, and, after a brief discussion, passed by the decided vote of 53 to 28. This is a victory greater in its proportions than even Us most sanguine friends dared anticipate. It looked yesterday as if the bill was to be defeated by “ rings ” that had been formed on the In dustrial College, State House, and other bills—not by a direct vote, but by the pumping process which is continually being practiced; but some of its iriends informed these “ ring” gentlemen that unless the bill was allowed Us regular turn they would defeat every’other measure before the General Assembly by resorting to omnibuses, suspension of rules, &c. The result of this bold stand is seen in the pas sage of the bill by a majority which something. The bill will pretty surely'pass the Senate and become a law. HELATIVB TO DIVORCES, A bill, reported this afternoon, to prevent 6 divorced persons from marrying under car after tbe decree bad been granted, was 5 : indefinitely postponed by a marked vote. Our gallant young Chicago representative. Major Stevenson, made a telling speech in defence of the matrimonial rights of the grass widows, which was received by the audience with rapturous applause. It was a settler to the bill, audit wont under like a Hash. THE RAILROAD DILLS. As telegraphed you yesterday would bo ibo case, Mack, this morning, got Senator Grten to move a reconsideration of the vote of Saturday requiring him to report the Railroad Bills back to the Senate, which he had held in bis pockets for the past three week?. The reconsideration was carried. The resolution was then debated for three or four hours in a sharp acrimonious man ner. During tbe discussion charges of at tempted bribery were made. The resolu tion was again carried by the decisive vote of 10 to 8; so Senator Mack will have to dis gorge tbe two Railroad Bills to-morrow morning or be put in contempt. INVESTIGATION OF BRIBERY CHARGES, After Ibis matter was decided, Senator Fuller olTered a resolution to appoint a se lect committee to investigate the charges of bribery, with power to send for persons and papers. There may bo fan bcloro this investigation cuds. TUB STATE HOUSE. A new bill for building a now State House has been proposed, and will be put Into the House to-day or 10-morrow. Section one authorizes the Governor of the Slate of Illinois to give notice by advertise ment in two of the dally newspapers printed in each of the cities of Chicago.Sprlugfield, at. Louis, New York, and Philadelphia, for the space of four weeks, that he Is author ized to procure plans and specifications for the building of a new State House for Illi nois, and to adopt such other measures as will secure to the work the very best archi tectural knowledge ami skill in the United States. Section two appoints a committee of nine members of the House, whosa duties shall he as hereinafter specified. Section three provides that the Governor shall, before deciding definitely upon a plan for such State House, obtain from dif ferent competing architects a general but intelligent plan of the House pro posed, with approximate estimates of the cost, and submit the same to the Lieutenant Governor, Secretary, Auditor and Treasurer of State, together with the committee of the Senate and House of Representatives; and the detailed plans and specifications shall he authorized and arranged In accordance with the plan which may be adopted by said officers of State In connection with said joint committee. Section four provides that the Governor ►hall, upon receiving the gonerahplans and estimates, proceed to notify each member of said Committee to meet la Springfield on the day specified for the purpose named above. Section five pays the members five dollars per day, and provides that the Governor &hall report the detailed plans to the next General Assembly for their approval or re jection. the new riEB and bock dill was introduced this afternoon. It is called the Atlantic, Illinois «fe Pacific Transfer Pier and Stock Company. T. J. Carter, 0. A. Wheeler, J. J. Richards, Thomas Hoiiow bush and James W. Eddy ore named in the bill as Commissioners for the purpose of or ganizing the company. The bill la almost identical with the one which has been so unanimously condemned by tbc people of Chicago. The only variations I discover arc 5n the nluth section, which "provides that the company shall pay to the State of Illinois a tax of three per coat per annum of the gross receipts, and to the City of Chicago three per cent, excluding the capital stock, or so much of it as has been paid in. The city bos now power to take possession of the properly at the end of twenty-five years on payment of the cost and ten per cent per arnum interest. It is due to Mr. Eddy, the Representative from Kane County, whose name appeared as one of tbc Commissioners, to state that U was put there without bis knowledge. Tbc hill was presented by Mr. Ilollowbuah, whose name appears as a Commissioner- I suppose the men who got it up have not the remotest idea that It will ever come out of the bands of the committee. It is understood that another bill of the same character will soon be offered to the consideration of the House. There is not the ghost of a chance forclthcrj PUBLIC PARK BILL. General Hurlbut has Introduced Into the House on act to enable the city of Chicago to acquire lands for Public Parks, and to ex tend tbc same powers to the towns of North Chicago and South Chicago. The Drst sec tion authorizes the Common Council of Chi cago to acquire lands bp donation, purchase, or condemnation, for public parks. Section two gives lo the Common Connell power of condemnation In accordance with the act approved June 23,1803. Section three prohibits any action requir ing the payment of money, or In causing debt until the proposition has been sub mitted to tbc voters of said Chicago. Section four provides for using the pre vious register of voters. Section Qve gives the same power to tho towns of North Chicago, West Chicago and South Chicago, under the same prohibitions. Section six gives the same powers to tbc town of Hyde Park, Lake, or any other town of North, West, or South Chicago, and to unite with the same town to which they may he adjacent in the purchase of such Park. Section seven gives power to the city of Chicago and the towns issue bonds for the purchase of lands. THE STATE CAPITAL, A bill to dislocate the State Capital was introduced to tbc House this afternoon and the reading received with shouts of laugh ter. After propositions to send It to various committees it was Anally by common con sent committed to the consideration of the reporters. EIGHT HOCH SYSTEM. The bill to make eight hours a legal days’ work among Mechanics passed tbc House this afternoon by a vote of SO to 11. Mtssrs. Shepard, Bond and Reynolds, of Chicago, supported tbc bill with speeches. ELEVATOR BILL. Tbe bill to incorporate tbc Chicago Eleva tor Company which Ifls said contains pro visions fur u back, warehouse, railroad and elevator, was IndeOnitely postponed, In tbc House this afternoon, by a unanimous vole. TUB HORSE RAILWAY SWINDLE. The corporators of the Chicago, Washing ton Street Tunnel, Peoples’ Horse Railway Company, hare not yet had their proposed swindle introduced into either House, and I fear that they bare abandoned the idea or doing so, the thing having been exposed The engineers, 1 believe, have left for home THE STATE LEGISLATURES. ILLINOIS. {Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Springfield, February 18. SENATE. PETITIONS. REMONBTRNCES, ETC., PRESENTED. Mr. SHEPARD’S petition of citizens of Pike County for reform schools. Mr. FORT’S remonstrance against the pas sage of the bill restraining catching of fish in Illinois River. CONSIDERATION OP TUB RAILROAD BILL. Mr. GREEN moved to reconsider the vote on the resolution instructing the Railroad Committee to report back Mr. Harlbnt’s Railroad Bill. Adopted. Mr. HUNTER moved the postponement of the resolution till July 4th. Mr. FULLER appealed to the Senators if It was fair to treat the friends of this Railroad Dill in this manner. He said there were ten Senators who favored the bill, and they should be allowed to have a hearing on the floor of the Senate. All he asked was that the bill should bo reported back from the committee, and its friends allowed to amend il, and consider It in open Senate. Mr. MUNN explained his course on the railroad question. He was in favor of Mr, Fuller’s bill at first, but be changed nis course because ho thought a stringent Rail road Bill might injure a certain raUroad en terprise la Sohtbern Illinois. Although he tbongbt the raUroad question had been suf ficiently considered here, and decided so far as it could be here, he would, as a matter oi courtesy, bo in fever of having the bill al luded to by Mr. Fuller reverted back to the Senate. . , Air, ADDAMS felt great astonishment at the manner in which this question had been r .reated, and the rights or Senators overrid

den, on this floor, by the railroad interest. It was a right of Senators to bo treated cour teously in this .matter, and he entered his protest ogalusf the tyrannical course of the , railroad monopoly advocates on this door. Mr. PINCKNEY was astonished at the ac tion of this Senate. When they came here , fresh from their oppressr'*! -onstituents, they voted by a majority of 18 to 7 In favor of re stricting railroads. Now they will not even allow the Railroad Committee to report a bill to the Senate. He came here strong for a railroad, restriction. When he could not get Sir. Fuller’s bill he wenLJor-Mr. Mack’s, but it seemed that even tb-' not get through. Ho had been , * that the Senate had been ,•» 3%. Ms .railroad question by the J o o o 3 - companies. 1/those men : y «e'g to the' feels, he would expose >5 *■* ga-r .o the country. : a -g 2 x jB suggesteddbatlf the Senator * ~ & S_ ?*3inientß of tbe lobby he ht cs «5 o ~Aney) would make a motion to .. ) K s a committee * investigation, with p ° '1 send for persons and papers. Mr. Ht-S “ER said be did not move to postpone the resolution to shield anybody, and withdrew It. He, bowever,-moved that tbe resolution calling on tbe committee to report do lie ou tbe table, lost—yeas, 11; nays, 38. Tbe question recurring on the passage of the original resolution, Mr. WEBSTER took tbe floor. He claimed that he bad kept his record straight on the railroad question. He bad voted for Mr. Fuller’s bill continu ally, and was yet for it; but be knew It could not pass, and was, therefore, opposed to opening the question again. He believed it was sought to open the controversy to affect tbe Now York railroad stock market, and allow Senators to make buncombe speeches for borne consumption. Mr. TINCUEU explained bis position on the question. He was in favor of restricting railroads, but would not go so to cripple railroad enterprise throughout the State. air. REILY alluded to the statements of Pinckney—that lobbyists had told him that the Senate had been bribed to vote against railroad restriction. He alluded to the course of tbeCiilcago Time* in charging tbe Senate with being bribed, and read an article from that journal on the subject. lie de nounced the Times and its editor in rough terms. Sir. PINCKNEY wont into a history of the organization of the Railroad Committee and selection of its Chairman. He voted against Hack for Chairman of that Committee until Mack plcducd himself that he would go for restricting railroads. If he failed to pass the bill he (Mack) had prepared, he would account him guilty of deception. Other wise be would not. Mr. MACK said the reason he did not want to report hack Messrs. Fuller’s and Hurlbat’s bills was that he wanted to pass his own. M. ADDAMS said that since the question of the organization of the Railroad Com mittee had arisen he would state that he was for Mack for Chairman of the Commit tee. He was for him out of courtesy to him old Senator, and because of assurances be gave him on the Railroad question. Mr. MACK said he had been in favor of asserting State control over railroads by le gal and legitimate means. There was only a difference of opinion between Senators and himself. He had fought the question persistently, and had triumphed. He then gave a history of the railroad question, and defended himself from the attacks of Sena tors, claiming that he hud acted constantly in good faith to get through this General Assembly the best bill that could bo got through underthe circumstances. Mr, FULLER explained that all he wanted by getting these bids before the Senate to sec if thedrlcnds of a restrictive bill could not agree on some hill. He wanted Senator* afforded an opportunity to harmonize their views on this question. While action was pending the Senate ad journed. AFTERNOON' SESSION*, Mr. Fuller’s resolution was again taken up. Mr. MUNN moved the previous question, which was sustained. The resolution was then adopted—yeas, 14; nays, B—Messrs. Cohrs, Chittenden, Eastman.

Mr. FULLER offered resolutions pro viding for the appointment of a committee lo inquire ifany bribery or other improper Influences fapve been used to pass or defeat any bills that hove been before the Senate, with power to send for persons and papers, and swear witnesses. Adopted unanimously. Chicago and its million. Mr. EASTMAN introduced a bill to assert the control of the city of Chicago over the harbor of that city. Mr. 3fcCONNELL said there were legal questions in the bill that deserved the care ful consideration of Senators. If this bill passed it might convey to Chicago millions of dollars worth of properly that really be longs to the State. He hoped Senators wonld look into this question before voting on it- Mr. 3IACK thought the bill would not convey the fee of the land to tho city. Mr. EASTMAN said the object of the bill was to keep tbc harbor out of the clutches of private parties. The bill was referred to the Judiciary Com mittee. BILLS EJSi'OSED OF.
