On Mr. Blaine demanding the pre vlous question, the Democrats began to tllll. buster.

A HERALD STORY. The Herald fays: “The secret mission of tbc steamer Gettysburg, with Frederick Sew ard and AdmiralTorter aboard, has been un earthed. The Intention was to purchase the Island of St. Domingo for a coiling station. President Cabral thought the plan a good one, but demanded eaMi down and plenty of it. A large amount of specie had been brought aboard at Annapolis, but at Port Royal, Jamaica, the sailors broke into th: ward room, where it was stored, abstracted three baps of it acd deserted the ship with their booty. But a reward of SIOJ bciu* offered for the recovery of the money, tho search for them was very brisk, and one of them was caught with a fortune on hi* per son. He was turned over to the First Lieu tenant, who, it is said, compassionately re turned the money to him. and sent him ashore. Thus the Missionaries had not money enough to purchase St. Domingo,and after recuperating their health at Nassau, returned to Annapolis.” 1 TUB CITZL BIGHTS ACT. M ASiiiNOTUN, February 19.—The communi cation from the President to the Senate, to day, states that he has not been cognizant of any violation of the Civil Rights Bill. H« referred the resolution of the Senate to tne beads of departments, and ascertained that none have come to the knowledge of the Navy, Interior, Post Office, Treusnry or State Departments. The Secretary of War sava no instance has been reported of neglect or re fusal of the military officers or employes to enforce the act. He reports the fol lowing cases of alleged violation of the act: First, the case ol Dr. Watson, for the murder of a negro in the Department of Virginia, who after his discharge by tho civil tribunal, was pul. on trial before the Militaiy Commission, which was dissolved on the ground of want of a jurisdiction un d'T the decision of tbc Supreme Court.

Third, the ease of Perkins, in tbclState of Texas, where the protec tion to colored men from alleged illegal act* under color of civil authority was afforded by the Assistant Commissioner of tho Freed, men’s Bureau, and his action approved by the War Department.

The Clerk of the House announced the agreement of tbo House to tbu report ol Hut Conference Committee on a bill to regulate tbo tenure of office. It goes lo tbu Presi dent. Mr, SUMNER allured a resolution, calling upon tbo President to inform the Senate if there baa been any correspondence between the Department of Stale and tbu Minister resident at Portugal, with reference to bis compensation; also, to Inform tbe Semite if such Minister has received any compensa tion for service since the act of hist summer denying him such compensation, and out of wbat fund. Agreed to. The bill amendatory to the act to provide for the safety of life of steamboat passengers and those on board vessels, to regulate the salaries of steamboat inspectors, and other purposes, passed. The Clerk of the House announced the ac tion ol the House on the bill to provide a more efficient Government for the Insurrec tionary States. The resolution to restore Lieutenant Com mander Breeze, United Slates Navy, to tbe active list, passed. Mr. WADE moved that the Senate insist on Its amendment to the Reconstruction Bill, and agreed on the amendments called for by the House. Quite a lengthy debate ensued. Mr. CONNESS thought this of too much Importance lo be referred lo a Conference Committee. Mr. WILSON favored a Conference Com mittee. If tbe report was not satisfactory It could be voted down. Mr. SUMNER advocated a committee as tbe only way of accomplishing tbe desired result. Mr. POMEROT did not think It possible to pass an acceptable bill at this stage of the session with or without a Conference Com mittce. Mr. SHERMAN wonld, under ordinary cir cumstances, vote for a Committee or Confer ence, but It was known tbal the opposition to the Senate omendmect In this case was not to be reconciled .without surrendering tbe principles apon which the bill was framed. The opposition to the hill came from twojex treme view* In the House, one asserting that the rebel States were now entitled to repre teolatlon, and tbe other believing the terms of the bill too liberal. He did not ace how a Conference Committee could settle this dif ference, end thought it best for the Senate to Insist still further on Its amendment, and give the House another opportunity to agree with the Senate. Mr, HENDRICKS said he did not desire tbe President to take advantage of the ten days rule to defeat the bill. He did not think there was any reason to believe the President would decline to aetlf he had lime allowed him to do k>. lie desired this ques tion lo he fairly and squarely treated and no ten days allowed to doicat this hill. 11c did not think there was any reason to think the President would decline to act if he bad time allowed him to do so. lie desired this ques tion to go to the country, to be fairly and squarely met, so he should not vote for a Committee of Conference.. The name of the committee on the House part did not justify him in the belief tin t a Senate committee will agree with the House Committee. Mr. LANE could not aurcc to h Conference Committee, because the point at is-ue be tween the two Houses was elemental aud fundamental. Mr. POMEROY repealed the belief that the bill could pot become a law this session, cither through a Conference Committee orby any otter means. Mr. FEsSENDEN said the bill failed in the House, os he understood, because the Blaine amendment, as redrawn, was thought not to afford suflicicnt protection to loyal men. This could be remedied in a Conference Com mittee. He concurred In the belief that the amendment did not go far cnougli in the safeguards. He preferred tho Military Mill as it came from the House, and was un will- ing to take the responsibility of insisting on the Senate amendment, as it might defeat the hill. Mr. HOWARD rejected Mr. Fessenden's views. He (Howard) was unwilling to trust this important subject to a Committee of Conference. Such a measure should bo set* tied by the two Houses in open session. There should be do compromising, no traf ficking, such as the best men arc sometimes likely to’engage in iu a Committee of Con. foc-ncc. Mr, i ESSENDENsnId ns to withholding his objections to Mr. Blaine’s amendment it was a strict understanding that there would be no debate on the Republican side. He had expressed his opinion since the bill passed the Senate. It did not altogether meet his view. It could be Improved on In a Com mittee of Conference. This waa a right with which his party obligations did not agree. Tho Senators from Michigan and Ohio (How ard and Wade) were bitterly opposed to amendment when first Introduced. Mr. HOWARD said he was not opposed to Mr. Blaine’s amendment, ns U was Incorpo rated In Kir. Sherman's bill. lie voted for It, while Mr. Fessenden was quietly asleep in his lodgings, paired off, thus avoiding, as lie (Howard) would be afraid to avoid the responsibility. Mr. FESSENDEN explained that he was absent when the vole was taken ; that he had paired of and been sick, and retired f om the chamber by the advice of friends. The gentleman from Michigan must not lecture him for being oat of the way, and glorify himself for staying here. Mr. HOWARD replied that he had not been aware of the Senator’s sickness. Ho remain* cd in bis scat because he was well, and voted tor the measure. This was the extent of bis offence. Mr. WADE believed this too grave a mat ter to leave at this stage to a Committee of Conference. He did not like some things said by Mr. Fessenden ; that he was present when the debate went on ; that there were features In it he did not approve, but he did not express his opposition. Mr. Fessenden should have shown.bis opposition, and pre sented his remedies. He did not believe in this way of doing business. He did not like to see men neglect their opposition to a bill at any time. Mr. FESSENDEN replied to Mr. Wade. Ho did not attach much Inportancc to his consent to the amendment. Mr.J WILLIAMS said he had waited a month, that more experienced legislators might bring forward something in the recon struction hue. Being disappointed, he intro duced the bill to afford ihilitary protection ami Constitutional government, Mr. SHERMAN moved that the Senate in sist on its amendment. Mr. TRUMBULL did not regard the bill as it came from the House, callad the Milila ry Bill, of the slightest, importance. The fourteenth section provides for just us much military control of the Sooth as this Military Bill. It made it the duty of the President to protect Union men, black and white, tn everr right and cn joxnu-nl of every liberty. If this had not bun done already, it was useless to repeal the law already on the statute book. He thought something else besides this onght to be incorporated In this bill, and he advo cated the Blaine amendment. He was op posed to a Conference Committee. Hu also alluded to the Frceomen’s Bureau. Though »true General Howard was at Us head, the President set aside his orders frequently, when he or his subordinates had attempted topunhh crime m the South. The Presi . ™cnlly pardoned the murderers of a negro in \ frglnia, and bad pardoned other robek on the motion of rebel Governors. -i .ft ,: MER .*1 rcc<l -with Mr. Trambnll about the Executive.

WILSON appealed to the Senate to take a vote and decide the fate of the bill. He hoped it would go back to tbc House and or be amended so It coaid be concur red In here. Mr. COWAN argued to show that the Southern States had a legal existence. He denied Mr. Trumbull's assertion that tbc Picfiidcnt had failed to cany out tbe provi sions ol the Freedmen bill. Alter further debate tbo Senate insisted upon Us amendment, and took, a recess. EVENING SESSION. The CHAIR submitted a response of the President to the resolution of inquiry wheth er any violations of theClvll Rights BUI have been known, and if so, what has been done to bring tbc offenders .to instlco; also, a communication from the President on the renewal of the reciprocity treaty. Both or. dered punted. The hill to abolish and forever prohibit peonage in New Mexico passed. A bill passed that regular army officers shall have by brevet the highest rank they held as volunteers. A bill passed giving S3OO to drafted men % who found substitutes, and were again drafted and went into the service. A hill for the increase ofpsy for two years trom the tint of July next, to army officers below the rank of Msjor General, and continuing in force' three years from August 20th last, the act for increasing nay to soldiers in the army, Ac., was considered.

Mr. WILSON, of lowa, inquired of Mr. Hooper when the House might expect the Committee of Ways and Means to obey the order ot tbo House in reporting the bill re stricting the Secretary of the Treasury in the withdrawal of the legal tender currency. Mr. HOOPER was proceeding to state that the committee bad been engaged on the Tariffßlil, bat would consider'other matters to-morrow, when the objection was made and sustained that the discussion was out of order. A motion to reconsider the vote was tabled—SO against 40. Mr. BANKS Introduced the resolution relative to the suffering poor of the South, previously noticed, which passed. The House went into Committee of the Whole on the Army Appropriation Bill. Messrs. LeBLOND, NIBLACK and WRIGHT argued against the section already referred to. The former was characterized as a trick to entrap the President. Little at tention was paid to the discussion, mem bers being mainly engaged In ascertaining what votes might be changed to secure u conference tn the Senate’s amendment to the Military Bill.

The amended St. Louis Bridge Bill, as It eame from Ihe Senate, passed the House this morning, by a nearly nnanlmons note. It i, understood that the work on tho bridge will be Inaugurated with as little delay as p'ossi ble, by Mr.-Boomer, who has, or will hare the contract for building U. ’ nonSB RAILWAY. The Cook County detection this moraine repotted back the Jefferson Horae Railroad Bill with a substitute.

CHICAGO, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20, 18G7, trol of tho Board or HupcrvUon. TUi trill waa ordered to a third reading. THE NEW RTAT« HOt’SB. Thc-Heimlo Idtt to biiHd n now State lloum won called up thU ofternoon in tho House as tho spatial order. Mr. Dunn offered ft* ft substitute the hill Introduc'd by himself to remoro the HUte Ifouao to Decatnr. On thU motion ha apoko moro than an hour In a apccch of great fervor. Tho substitute was rejected by a decided vole. Mo* Ilona were then made to go Into Committee of the Whole, to refer tho bill to ft committee, Ac*, but they were all voted down. Mr. Bailor of* fured a substitute for the bill—the same that I telegraphed you last evening—sad address* cd the House in favor of bis amendment. A number of other amendments were offered, and speeches made, but to no purpose. The discipline of the ring was perfect, and they were voted down. The main question was then put, and the hill passed by a rote of 53 , to 00. This was not really a test rote. On the bill, several gentlemen who tried to amend the bill, or put In substitutes, finally voted for it, because they could not get any* thing better. The bill contains at least two palpable violations of the Constitution: first, In naming the Commissioners who should be appointed by tho Governor; and, second, in appropriating money in sums be* joed the constitutional limits. Except the question 'be submitted to the people, several members have declared that they Intend to have the bill tested In the courts. The bill is proba bly the most loosely drawnand irresponsible one ever put through the House. lam sorry to cay the lobby and gallery, which were filled with Springfield people, indulged in very unseaming and discourteous manifests* tlons toward those who were oppoi to the bill, and were decidedly rapturous .a their commendations of those who favored it. When the bill passed they cheered lustily the chief defenders of the bill. On the Republican side were Messrs. Hurlbut, Shepard, Childs, Stacey, Taylor, and others. The Democrats sustained the bill to a man. They bad reasons for doing so. As It is It puts three of their number into a life office worth $5 per day. The taking of the rote In its final passage occu pied more than one hour, as full one-half the members felt called upon to explain their vote. TBE PARK BILL PASSED. The bill for laying out a park in the towns •of South Chicago, Hyde Park, and Lake, known as the Compromise Bill, which was defeated in the Senate yesterday, was recon* sidered this morning, and after a speech from Lieutenant Governor Bross, who was Invited to address the Senate, the bill was passed by a vote of 17 to 4. CANAL AND INTERNAL IMPROVEMENT DILL. The Senate was occupied nearly the whole day considering the Canal and Internal Im provement Bill, and it was finally passed after being amended In several important particulars. One amendment makes tbc 1111* nols River the first improvement to be at tended to. Another submits tbc question to the people. The last amendment is regarded as lutal to the bill, and was put In for the purpose of killing It. It will be scut to the „ House in the morning for concurrence iu the amend ment, and the House will probably refuse. What will follow It is difficult to predict. There was a sort of compact or ring formed between the canal men and the Now State House ring, by which the two should be put through together. The canal men perform ed their part of tnc compact, but they are coming to the conclusion that they have been sold out. The friends of the New State House have got all they wanted, and It looks as If they were going to let the Canal Billgo under. To-morrow will tell the story. EXPLANATION. Colonel Mack complains that I did him In justice in my despatch of Saturday. It ap pears that his own Railroad BUI was before the Senate, and not In his pocket os stated, but Fuller’s and Hurlbut’s bills were. He says the fact of these two bills being referred to his committee was ample evidence that they were killed, and U was unnecessary to report them back. I am unwilling to do Colonel Mack injustice, and make this cor rection. THE STATE LEGISLATIVES. ILLINOIS, [Special Despatch to tbc Chicago Tribune.] Spuntonrtn, 111., Febrnarj 19. SBNATK. CniCAUO PARK DILL. Mr. MCCONNELL called up his motion to reconsider tbc vote by which the Chicago Park Bill was defeated yesterday afternoon in the Senate. The motion to reconsider was adopted. Mr. WARD denounced the hill as a sin* peudous land speculation. On STRAINS’ motion the Speaker was In vited to express his views on the bill. Mr. BUOSS thanked the Senate for giving him this privilege. Ho be lieved there was no “steal’* in this bill. The protest first suggested itself to him on the Sierra Nevada moan tains, while conversing with gentlemen about parks. He had no pecuniary interests in the bill. lie owned no land within three miles of the proposed park. It was to he located in south- Chicago, Hyde Park and Lake, and only the people of those towns to be taxed to make it. lie urged the necessity of a park for Chicago. It was a great city, and it needs an inviting park. The question, be said, was to be submitted to tbc people, and if they do not choose to tax themselves they need not. He reiterated again that there was no steal la the scheme. BUI passed—yeas, 17; nays, 4. CONSIDERATION OF TOE CANAL DILL. The Canal BUI came up as the special or* dcr. There was a proposit s on to postpone action* till to-morrow, which gave rise to a spicy debate. The motion to post* pone was rejected. On Mr. CUIiR’S motion, the Senate went into Committee of the Whole on the bill, Mr. Mack in the Chair. Section one was read, when Mr. ADDAMS

moved that it be eo amended as to require the Commissioners to locate the terminus of the canal above Rock Island Rapids. The amendment was lost and the section adopted. The bill was then considered by sections, for an hoar and a half, when the committee rose and reported progress, and asked leave to sit again, which was granted. Fuither action was postponed till half-past two. Adjourned. AFTERNOON SESSION, Messrs. McConnell, fort, cohrs, FULLER, MACK and METCALF spoke upon the Canal Bill. Mr. Cohr’s amendment was finally adopted. Several other amendments seeking to limit the appropriation for the improvements In various ways were proposed and objected to, alter which the section was adopted as amended. The remaining sections of the bUI were then adopted In Committee of the Whole, when Mr. MACK moved it be stricken out. Tbe motion was lost—yeas 12, nays 13. Mr. ADDAMS offered an amendment pro viding for the submission of the question of proposed taxation for the canal to the people next November at the election for canal of ficers. Mr. METCALF urged tbvt If this scheme ~ fcre put through without allowing peo ple to vote, It wouli itftTCy tis Republican party. Mr. MACK said Senators were scot here to do the things proposed in this bill, and he saw no necessity ofsubmltting It to the people. Messrs. STRAIN, ADAMS, CHITTEN DEN, BOND, and BUNN advocated the amendment. Messrs. McCONNELL, FUL LER, WARD, and TINCHER spoke against. Mr. GREEN moved the previous question, and Mi. ADDAMS’ amendment passed, the following Senators voting yea: Addams, Boyd, Chenery, Chittenden. Green, Hnnter, Metcalf, Munn, Relly, Shepherd, Strain, Wcscott, Woodson—lS.

He urged bis substitute in a lengthy and able speech, pointin'* out that by the provisions of Section 2 of Article 4, the Springfield bill was clearly unconsti tutional. Mr. SHEPARD moved to lay the amend meat on the tabic. Members appealed to him not to attempt thus to choke off all fair dealing, and crowd the Springfield job through. No use. The vole was persisted in. Carried—ls ayes to 35 nocs. Mr. PAINE offered an amendment living power of appointing Commissioners to the Governor. An unsuccessful attempt was made to choke him off. He wouldn’t choke worth a cent, but made a big speech against the Scn atelblll. Mr. \ EAGER tried to gag him by the five minute rnle, saying all the speeches were on one side—against tbc bill. Mr.PAYNE replied; The pledged voters for the bill didn't dare to make speeches. They could not defeat themselves or sustain the measure. Mr. DINSMOOR called attention to Sec tion 25, of Article 5, ofthe Constitution which denies to the Assembly the power to eleot officers. - Mr. CONKLING interrupted him to make several assertions, the gist of which was that so long as It was in this bill it was all right. Dmsmoor’s speech was an elaborate legal argument, full of sharp thrusts at the dally ing and sophistry of the defenders of the bill, and directed especial attention to the swindle of selling the present State House property, worth half a million, lor $200,000. Fiora time to time he was hiss ed trom the tables and galleries, and those who Interrupted him were applauded. Mr. SHEPARD exerted his massive abili ties In another gsg. * A motion was made to lay tbc amendment on the table. Mr. STEVENSON, smlllngon the galleries, moved the previous question, and was laughed at as usual. Mr. SHEPARD’S motion was carried by 45 ayes to 35 nays. Mr. HI3RLBUT sprung to the floor and moved the bill be read the third time. Mr. EDDY a-sked permission to amend by Introducing $4J0,090 instead of $200,009, as the price ofthe present property. . Mr. lIURLUUT refhsed to yield to It, and talked about (be necessity lor a big fitute House, proportionate to the great interests and magnificent, stride* of oar giant Stata. Then he spoke of Springfield as historic ground, illustrated by the life of Lincoln. When he concluded, Mr. CASEY stood ready to press the gag by demanding the previous question. Mr. PAYNE moved to adjourn, and Mr. Stacey, as Speaker, refused to tolerate his motion. Mr. REYNOLDS explaining his vote, said that he might have voted tor the bill If it had been allowed to make one little amend ment. 4 *What was it S’” ho was asked. It was to stiike out the nominal name of Wil liam T. Vaudever and insert the real one which was Melville T. Fuller. Motion carried—o 3 ayes to 38 docs.
