THE TARIFF BILL DEAD. Tbe vote in the House this afternoon, by which the Tariff BUI was ki led, was one of the largest cast this session, a .d showed 169 members present. The galleria- were crowd ed, and great interest was manifested n tbe proceedings. The bill necessarily being In Committee of tbe W'holc, a two-thlrds vote to discharge the committee was needful be fore any action could be bad on the bill it iclf. In view ot tbe fact that tbe time pre vious to the cud of the session was wholly insufficient for the cons’deration of the blit in rxtmso, it friends, after consultation, de cided to suspend action in comm-.ticc, and take the best thin? they could get, and trust to the legislation of the next session for rem edies and improvements. Accordingly, as soon os the bill was reached, this morning, Mr. Morrill, speaking in their behalf, moved the discharge of the Committeeof the Whole. This was accept ed as a test vole on the bill, and the roll was called with the Mouse in much excitement The vole stood yeas 10.1, nays 04. There was great confusion caused by tne crowding of members into tbc area in front of the Clerk's desk to watch the progress of the call, and Bedlam bad appateutly brokeloose when the Speaker announced the failure of the motion, as two-ibirds had not voted in theafflrmatlve. An analysis of the vote shows the negative compo-ed of thirty Republicans and thirty four Democrats, while the affirmative was composed of one hundred Republicans and five Democrats. The negative vote was cast l)v the following States: Indiana, 10; Illinois and New York, 9 each; Kentucky, 6; Tennes see and Missouri, 5 each ; Ohio, Wisconsin and Maryland, 4 each; lowa, S; New Jersey, 2; Minnesota, Pennsylvania and Delaware, 1 each. As soon as the vote was declared, twenty members shouted for recognition by the Speaker. The floor was given to Mr. Stevens, who moved a resolution discharging the Committee of the Whole, agreeing to tbe Senate bill as already amended, with one further amendment, viz.: to include ship ping charges In the valuation price of Im ports. A score of gentlemen wanted other amendments made for the benefit of special interests, bnt Stevens refused to accent, ex cept that of Harding, of HI., which in effect about doubled tbe rates on all agricultural produce. This brought a direct issue on the Tariff Bill made up from the Senate hill, hot still required a two-thirds rote, as the discharge of the com mittee was necessarily involved in the motion, frv “ result was even worse than before—the vote r- T-*IO"UOIO thing being lost, Mr. Morrill moved a Joint providing a temporary increase of twenty per cent on alt imports except sugar, tea, coffee, salt, coal and railroad Iron. The utmost excitement and confu-lon constantly prevailed, and tbc Speaker, after much rap ping of his desk, was finally obliged to ar rvH all bnslness for two or three minutes, and read the House a severe lecture. The vote on Mr. Morrill's proposition showed a still further demoralization, the result being yeas 94, nays 71—a two-thirds vote being necessary for tbc suspension of the rules in order to get tbc Joint resolution before tbc House for action. It was now after 4 o'clock, .and nearly an hour and a half hod been oc cupied with these proceedings. One effort more remained, and it was led by Kasson In behalf of the wool Interest, who moved a suspension of the rules that he might bring In the wool tariff passed by the House on tbe lust day of last session. This was lost—yeas S 3, nays 01,— many Pennsylvanians voting in the negative out of spile. An adjournment for dinner was then carried. rETTT SPITS. About one hundred colored men have been discharged by their Conservative employers in Georgetown for voting the Union ticket at the late election. A BUBEAU or EDUCATION, Garfield's bill establishing a Bureau of Ed ucation, passed tbe Honse last session, went thiouch the Senate to-day without amend ment. It provides for the appointment df a Commissioner of Education, who with three clerks, will occnpy rooms provided here by Hie Secretaiy ol the Interior.

The Hobse took up the Bankrupt BUI at ita session this evening, and alter refusing by yeas 65, bays Ti, to send It to the table, or dered a Committee of Conference, to which the Senate subsequently agreed. The House managers will accept the Senate bill rather than lose the whole measure. * AN OMNIBUS BILL occupied the Senate nearly all the after* noon., • VOTED TO PAT THEM. 4 The proposition to allow” the Secretary of the Treasury to pay for the services of As sisUnt Assessors of Southern Slates, ap pointed in 18C5, who could not take the teat oath, was finally carried by yeas 33, nays 18.

The Honse this evening, after an earnest and spirited debate, refused by yeas 53 nays b 3, to agree with the Senate bill passed yes terday, for funding compound interest notes and then asked aCommlttec ofConfcrence. ’ THE TAX SILL occupied the Senate at the evening session. The changes recommended In the House hQi are not very numerous, except In adminis trative sections. The Senate agreed to pnt three percent <zJ valorem taxon manufactures of glass; to fix the rate on refined sugars at one and a half per cent ad valorem; that money receipts shall not be exempt from stamp duty; and the following articles «ti»n oe added to the free list, as passed by the House, viz.: shell fish; bar, rod, hoop, band, sheet and plate iron of all descriptions, and Iron" prepared for the manufacture of steel and wireclottu They refused to agree with the.

Tbe President will soon issue u proclamation recognizing Nebraska os a Slate, when the Senators and Representatives from that State will be ad mitted to Congress. THE BANKRUPT BILL. The fact that the House to night, by refus- mg by nine majority to lay the Bankrupt Bill ou the tabic, and appointed a Commit* icc of Conference to join that heretofore ap pointed by the Senate on the disagreeing 'tmemiments. is regarded by the friend!) of ibat measure as indicative of the certain passage of the bill through both Houses. VETOES LOOKED FOB. It was reported this rooming that thereto of the Reconstruction Bill would be scut la io-i Igtit, but guessing was again at fault, so it must be looked for to-morrow. The New York Times* special says: “ Re l>orls that General Grant bad an interview with the President on tbe Reconstruction Bill arc unfounded, though be Is unqualified ly in favor of the bill. The President’s veto of tbe Reconstruction Bill is prepared. It is quite lengthy, and principally devoted to ihe legal matures of tbo bill. Us tone la tirm and respectful.

The Secretary removed ikem, and In Detroit appointed a man who would not have been trusted for a suit of 1 Vi?*"? 8 anywhere In the whole Congressional District—a roan so utterly unlit for i he position that no man and no party would rcc* mmend him. It was true he was reject . d, but he was kept In office after the Secre tary had been convinced of his unfltness. Alter his rejection the Secretary appointed a man no belter. In the Stale of Michigan his appointments were controlled bv men who were ulteriy devoid of character, repu tation and position.

It was therefore Impossible for the Committee on Ways and Means to consider it propci ly and report it back on the 10th of February. The bill bad to go to the Committee of the Whole, where the amendments were Inter minable. As much progress as possible had been made, but now it was clear that con cessions would have to be made on alt sides, the bill was to be brought to a final vote! He would, therefore, make a motion, which would icquire a two-thirds vote, to discharge he Committee of the Whole from the further onsidcraticn of the bill. After debate, the House refused, by a vote if 105 to 04, to discharge thelcommittce from ;lc further consideration of tbc bill, and : bat is the end ot it for this session.

He hoped the friends of the bill would be present and stand by it. Mr. ROSS (Dcra-, of Illinois.) moved to strike out the enacting clause of the bill. Debate was closed, and the vote was taken on Mr. Ross’ motion to strike oat the enact ing clause. The motion was agreed to—Cl to 48. The committee then rose and reported Us action to the House. Mr. HALE (Rep., N. Y.,) trusted that the House would not take so grave a step as to kill the bill at Ibis stage of tbc session. How would gentlemen reconcile their votes on this bill with their votes to maintain the mil- Harvard of tbc Government audio mam* tain the navy? They should, to be consis tent, disband tbc army and navy, and dis mantle the forts. The previous question was moved and sec onded, and the House proceeded to vote by yeas and nays on striking out the enacting clause. The vote resulted yeas 57, nays 69, so the enacting clause was cot struck out, and the bill was, under the rule, recommitted. THE COTTON TAX. Mr. MORRILL made some remarks in re view of the various amendments reported from the Committee of the Whole on tbe Slate of tbe Union. In the course of them he opposed the abolition of tbc cotton tax. He said that it was not an oppressive tax, and be bad no donht that the Southern states would themselves bo in favor of its continuance. Mr. HOLLINS (Rep.,N. 1T.,) on this subject subject submitted a table snowing the amount of tax collected in tbc rebel States for 11:60. from which it appeared that the tax collected from cotton was over $15,000,000, and that from all other sources was only $4,500,000—a sum which was less than was paid by the small State of Rhode Island. This amount die- tnbuted through tbe ten States would hard ly pay the expenses of collection, and It would be as well to exempt these States from tbc operation ot the Internal Revenue law. The next vote was ou Mr. Blaine's amendment abolishing the cotton tax after the Ist of September, 1567. Tbc amendment was i ejected. Yeas.-05 ; nays, 95 FROM SPRINGFIELD. (Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] bpnotortXLD. 111., February 28. CLOSING SCENES. Both Honses of the General Assembly ad journed rin# dit, to-day, at twelve o'clock, or thereabouts. The closing work of the House was done decently and in order, but the Senate exploded in a sort of row- Dur ing the last hour the Senators indulged themselves in the dignified and Senatorial* like performances of shying books, paper, paper balls, Ac., at each other, while the clerks were called upon to read bills with no one listening to them. Finally the whole jterformance becoming too degrading and disgusting for farther tolerance, the Speaker arose and declared the Senate adjourned fine die. IN TOE HOUSE several bills were passed, among them the one to establish a State Reform School. Last night it looked as if this bill was defeated, Mr. Epler having objected to suspending the rules, that being the only way in which it could be carried forward to Its final passage. The friends of the bill made another effort in its behalf this morning, and notwithstanding the efforts of Mr. Epler, aided by Taylor, of Cook, the hill was carried triumpoatly through. It is a most beneficent measure, and has been largely demanded by the hu mane people of the State. The supplement al act to the City Charter of Chicago, which provides for tbe election of new Canal Com missioners in place of those legislated out of office, was also passed. Also tbe Printing Bill—another very essential and reformatory measure. The Senate amendment to the bill striking out the clause which confined ihc bidding to the State, was concurred in. TOE CHICAGO a 11X1X015 BIVXB BAILBOAD. One important railroad charter was also carried through the Bouse, and Is now a taw. It is called the Chicago & Illinois River Railroad. The incorporators are Charles C. P. Bolden, B. F. McCarty, Chas. Ilillidan, Chas. N. Holaen and N, E. Pegram. The charter authorises the company to c»'n?lruct a road from Chicago through Plainfield to Lisbon and Ottawa, where it will cross the Illinois River. It strikes the Vermillion River in the midst of the coal mines, and the Company have provided for a track to run along the bank of the river for a distance often miles, in order to reach the great coal beds In that vicinity. The main line oi tbe road crosses the Illinois Central at or near Weuona, thence to a point CHICAGO, FRIDAY, MARCH 1, lsr>7. opposite Kei/kub, lowa, or at such point a? may be hereafter located, after a survey of the road. It trill also connect with the Des- Moines Valley Railroad, and, If bnilt, moat become one of the leading railroads of HU* nols. depabtube or members. A pretty large number of the members of the General Assembly left Springfield to night for home, but many will remain until Saturday or the early part of the week. This is particularly the case with the yonng un married ones, who I think find hearts bee beating responsive to their own. Who knows what social relations may grow out of this historic forty-two days ? THE STATE LEGISLATURES. ILLINOIS. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.! SrnntanLD, 11L. February S 3. SENATE. RECOXSIDEKED AN’D DEFEATED. An exciting controversy arose at the open ing of the Senate relative to the manner lu which a bill revolutionizing the boundaries ol the Circuit Courts of Southern Illinois was passed last night. It was urged by sev eral fcenat ors that there had been irregularity In the passage of the bill, and-that the Speaker ordered the bill to a third reading* in defiance of the objection of members; Af ter much discussion; a motion to reconsider the votes by which the bill was passed to a second-and third reading, prevailed. The bill was then defeated for lack of a three fourths majority to suspend the rules. THE SENATE POSTMA9TEH. Mr. STRAIN offered a resolution instruct ing the Senate Postmaster to remain in the chamber one week after the adjournment, to lorwatd mail to Senators. Adopted. THE STATE BOUNTY AGENT, A motion prerailed to reconsider the Tote by which the bill was defeated, appropri* atlDg (5,000 to pay the salary of the State Bounty Ajrent at Washington. Considerable debate ensued as to whether there was any use for the Aeent. A vote was taken and the bill again defeated. HOUSE BILLS weretaken up and the following among others passed: To Incorporate the Thief De tective Association, ofPnncoTille; to Incor porate the Vermillion Hirer Coal Company; o incorporate the Chicago Soap and Candle Manufacturing Company.. The bill in relation to capital punishment, which girea Juilea discretionary power, either to hang or'imprison parties lor life, convicted of murder, was passed—yeas SO, nays 5. iworaxro. There was but little done after this, every Senator becoming demoralized on the sun* jeet of order, the Speaker trying vainly to preserve decorum. At one o’clock p. m. the Speaker declared- the Senate adjourned nne die. •- house. BSFOS3C SCHOOL BILL PASSED. The Reform School Bill was taken up on a suspension of the roles and without discus sion pissed. LAID OK THE TABLE.

Mr. CHILDS reported that the Governor had nothing to offer. RESOLUTIONS IK DONOR OP ADBADAM LIN *' * COLN. * Mr. CONKLING otfered the followinz: Wiiekba*, Since the last session of tbe Legislature of this State, the nation has had < ccaslon to mourn over tbe untimely death of its Chief Magistrate, cruelly murdered bv the hand of an assassin in the midst of bid arduous responsibilities and official duties; and Whereas, This State has lost thereby one of Us most honored and worthy citizens, who had served In its councils, defended Its interests, and promoted Its welfare; who had secured Us confidence by his Integrity, and been repeatedly derated by its partiality to stations of honor and of tru»t; and Whereas, Our grief has not been removed nor the recollection ot his numerous virtues L-ecn effaced from our memory, though raanv months hare elapsed since that dire' calami*

ty; therefore be It Jiesolred, By th* House of Representatives of the State of Illinois, That by the death of Abraham Lincoln thisStatehasbecn deprived ot a citizen who adorned the social circles of life by the excellent traits of bis private character; who graced the judicial forum by his transcendent talents ana legal erudition; who maintained tbe interests of our State in onr Legislative halls and our National Conn* tils by his convincing eloquence; and who bas'lcfl among our statutes many wise and ex* ccllcnt laws which lie at the foundation of our present prosperity; and will forever re main the enduring monuments of his wis dom. Besotted, That by bis death tbe nation has ’ost one of Us purest statesmen and wisest counsellors, one whom the most appalling dangers could not intimidate; whose pat* riot ism the seductive influences of patronage and power could not destroy; whose Integrity the caresses of flattery auu friendship could not cot nipt; whose native simplicity of char acter remained unaffected by courtly fashion and official splendors; whose gigantic In tellect and colossal gcolns stood pre-eminent among the counsellor* of the Cabinet, and the most distinguished statesman of the age. Besotted, That by bis death tbe cause of humanity was deprived of an advocate whose heart throbbed In sympathy with the oppressed of this nation and of every land; that his name has become synonymous with philanthropy In its exalted' and noble character; that wherever despotism is de grading any portion of the human race, there the name of Abraham Lincoln has become familiar as a household word, inspires tbe hope of future freedom;- that when the chains of slavery were stricken from the limbs of four millions of human beings in this laud by the Proclamation of Emancipation the cause of hnman liberty was established upon a firmer basis thronghont tbe world. Bruited, That we will cherish his memory with undying uUcction; that we will protect his fame aiming tbe most «acrcd relics of the past; that we will inscribe his name again this day upon tbe pace of history, and trans mit il with our solemn sanction to fntnre generations for their admiration and grati tude ; that we will adorn the place where his remains repose with monnmcntal splendor, and preserve his ashes with the veneration that is dne to one of tbe noblest benefactors of the human race. Besotted, That la tbe domestic relations of litc be was always tbe lender husband and the affectionate father, and while we deeplv sympathize with bis atlllcted widow anti children in their aad bereavement, we would Jraw around them the veil of sorrow, and commend them to the merciful protection of their Heavenly Father. Jie*oh*d, That these resolutions be entered upon the journals of the House as an endnr lug testimonial ofonr regard tor his memory, and that a copy bo transmitted to his be reaved family. These resolutions were unanimously adopt* ed, and an Impressive silence of some mo ments followed the action. CLOSING. SC EXES. The House then adjourned rim dit, the members remaining In tbelr scats. Speaker CORWIN, in a very neat and feel ing address, returned his thanks to the Honae tor the honor conferred on him by his eleva tion, and by the resolution of the House; af ter which the members to each other hade farewell. MICHIGAN. [Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] Laxsrso, Mich., February S 3. A caucus of the friends of the railroad bills to-cight agreed to make all railroad bonds bear interest not exceeding ten per cent, no town to issue bonds exceeding ten per cent of st ressed valuation, and to be payable within ten years. Should bills on this basis not meet the approval of the Governor, their 1 Herds will unite and pass them over the veto. The Conference Committee on the Conven tion Bill held a long session to-night, but without a definite agreement. An informal caucus of members of the House will be held to-morrow to consider the original House bill with the addition of two delegates from each Congressional Dis tiict as a basis of agreement- This will be acceptable to the Senate. The Senate spent the entire day in the con sideration of the Female College Bill, which was placed on order for a third reading.
