J Washington, February 21. TAX HILL. The House made some progress this even* eng on the Tax Bill. Among the articles add <‘d to the free list were the following; Chums, wooden baskets, broom handles, cheese boxes, wooden hames, wooden saddle trees, apple-paring machines, split-bottom chairs, bools and shoes, shoe string*, shot, sheet lead, lead pipes, all horse-powers, pitchforks, root beer, cheap hard soaps.

The House spent nearly the whole aftcr- I’oou on financial questions raised by the re ]>ort from the Ways and Means Committee of a bill In two scctloni; the first one of which was the substantial measure passed on Monday by the Senate, for funding com pound Interest notes; the second one being in accordance with the Grhmcll resolution, prohibiting any further contraction of green- Imcks. The debate was noisy and confused, pnd the course of business was intricate and complex. The result of three hours’ work may be staled In a few words: The Senate bill for funding compound Interest notes was rejected by 99 to SO. The proposition founded on Grinocll’s • resolution, to piohlblt the withdrawal of any more greenbacks for one year, was lost by 75 to 84. In place of these two clauses, the House, by a vote of 05 to 04, adopted a bill of six lines of manuscript, entitled ‘ an act to provide for the fain ding of compound Inter cst notes,” which authorizes the Secretary of the Treasury to Issue one hundred mllligns of legal tenders, or greenback currency, lu I>laco of the composed interest aolei re deemed. The vote by which the propoiTlES to take from the Secretary of the Treasury the authority to withdraw fourml.lons of greenbacks per month was lost la oa follow*: TUt, Allison, Hayea.

Griswold, It is known that a majority of the Finance Committee have been decidedly opposed to all bills like the ono passed, and there is no reason for supposing that their views have undergone a change In this regard. The bill was referred to them this afternoon. It Is stated this evening that the House has re jected their bill. They may report this with out recommendation for tho action of the Senate. TREASURY CIRCULAR. One o! the evening papers says that Secre tary McCulloch will shortly Issue a circular notifying the public that the Department is now ready to receive and convert into 5-20 bonds the 7-SO bonds issued under the act of August, 1604, and due next August, and also to pay the Interest due thereon. This Is done In order that tho bonds may’bc received and converted daily, and not all be presented at tbc same time when due. nOUNTT FOR SEAMEN AND MARINES. The House has passed a bill providing that the provisions of the Soldiers’ Bounty Bill of last session shall he ap plicable to seamed of tho United States rary and marines enlisted for cor responding periods, said bounties to he paid in the same manner and subject to the same conditions provided in that law so far as the -nine arc applicable, and otherwise in accor dance with the laws regulating tbc payment of other bounties to seamen and marines.

Moore, District of Columbia, now Piiratc Secretary to the President, and Justus Steinberger, of Oregon. The Secretary of War has,' however, scuta list of about twenty more appointments to the President, who will doubtless act upon it very soon. LIQUOR SMUGGLING. The Government has recently made a seiz ure of a considerable number of hogsheads of sugar, in each of which was concealed a bar rel of Jamaica rum or some other costly li quor. The object of the smuggle was, of course, to save the tariff duties. NOMINATIONS SENT TO TUE SENATE. The President sent a large number of Post Ofilcu nominations to the Senate this after noon, and a few Internal Revenue ofllccrs. The whole number of civil nominations sent uptothc present time Is <3B. THE QUESTION OF I’AV FOR OFFICERS* SER- VANTS. The Paymaster General gives notice that ihc action of the Court of Claims in allowing the difference of pay to ofllccrs for their au'horizcd servants, between May Ist, IWM, and-March 3d, 1805, Is not final, and should it he decided that the Department is to act on this class of claims, the public will be ad vised through the press. Till then no claim will be entertained. The Senate spent the greater part of the day cn the Mil legalizing the railroad bridge across the 31ieslfialpiil River at Clinton, lowa and declaring it a post route. It was finally passed, having previously passed the llousc. It row goes to the President.

(Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.l SpuraoriELD, HI., February SI. DILL TO REGULATE THE BALE OF ARDENT SPIRITS. The Senate devoted most of the afternoon to the bill to regulate the sale of ardent spirits. The hill provides that towns and cities may settle the question of license by a vote of the people. An attempt was made to exempt Chicago from the provisions of the bill, but it failed. If the bill becomes a law, unless Senators change their minds, the j»eople of Chicago will bare to elect whether they will grant licenses or not. Paring the discussion in the Senate qnlte a number of most excellent and effective tempera tee addresses were made by Senators from whom that class of YfiS not ex pected. The final question was not reached before the Senate adjourned. Several Chicago citizens here assert that the Income from licenses in that city is a small fraction under one hundred thousand dollars, and that amount will be lost to the city if this (till should pass and tbc people should re fuse to license. What she would gain in a moral point of view bos not yet entered into any calculation that I have seen. THE CHICAGO CITY CHARTER AMENDMENTS have made no headway in the Senate to-day. It Is expected they will come up to-morrow, aud will probably pass that body before it adjourns ju«c die. THE NEW STATE HOUSE BILL. I hear to-night that a distinguished law yer of Chicago is preparing au opinion upon the constitutionality of the provisions of the New State House Bill. This opinion will be submitted to the Governor before he sanctions the bill by his signature. The friends of the bill begin to manifest signs of alarm, as they have no assurance, that Governor Ogles by will sign the bill. The bill, without doubt, deprives the Governor of his constitu tional rights, and it Is his duty to vindicate the dignity of bis position by promptly sending back the bill without his signature. As I telegraphed you yesterday, if the bill becomes a law, there arc several members who declare it their intention to resist it be fore the courts. THE JOLIET PENITENTIARY. The question ofleasing the Joliet Peniten tiary toßainc, Burns, Hatch, Osborne, Dustin & Co., was up In the House this afternoon. Mr. Childs, Chairman ot tbc Penitentiary Committee, made a speech of considerable length In favor of giving the lease to these parties. Mr. Childs stated that he came here prejudiced against leasing the prison to these or any other parties, but bad changed his mind, and was now In favor of the propo sed leases extending to the year 1877. Several amendments were offered to the bill. One requiring the contractors to give each pris oner eight dollars when he leaves the prison, was under consideration when the House ad journed. TUB TAZEWELL COUNTY ELECTION CASE was discussed In the House tills evening, at • onsideroblc length, by Messrs. Hanna, Dow. ycr, Dinsmoor, Withers, Shirley, and others. The question on giving the scat to Mr. Sal* (oiibtall was voted down, and Mr. Sellers' light to the scat was couflrmed by a decided majority. DEFEAT OF THE APPORTIONMENT DILL. In the House this morning, Mr. Wakeman, from the joint committee lor rcdlstrictlng the State into Senatorial and Representative Dislticts, reported against any new appor* lionment of the Slate. After debate by Messrs. Dates, Alexander and Dowycragalnst discharging the committee from further con sideration, and by Messrs. Wakeman and Hanna in favor, the motion was agreed to by a decided vote. So we arc to have no reap portionment of the State. The two leading causes which have operated to pro* ducc the result arc : First, the members have vet too many private schemes on hand which they wish to get through, to give this apportionment proposition any attention; second, every member wants a district to fit his own case, and If he cannot get it he is against any change. Of course, all the Democrats are against auy change, as ac- I cording to tbo present apportionment they have a greater strength hero than the votes they cast entitle them to. TUE CUICAGO WEtnniNO AND MEASURING COMPANY. A bill was introduced into the House Ibis afternoon lo incorporate the Chicago Weigh ing ard Measuring Company. The bill gives l>owcr to tbc company to Issue certificates of indemnity against loss from the short delivery ol all kinds of grain, Hour, beef, pork, lard, and all other articles transported by railroads, lakes, men, canals or by any other mode of transportation where a con tract or bill of lading has been or will be Issued for the delivery of either of said arti cles. The stock of the company Is fixed at one hundred thousand dollars. The corpora tors ore Jonathan W. Tuttle* Thomas N. Bond, Charles E. Case, William S. Brewster and Andrew Anderson. TUE OAS DILL came up In the House this morning, on the motion to reconsider. Mr. Taylor made every elfort to defeat the bill, but he could make no impression, and bis motion to reconsider was defeated by ayes 10, noes 54. Tbc bill now goes to the Senate, where its fate is more uncertain, as I hear Us enemies intend to employ all the parliamentary strategy of which they arc masters to stare off action.
