March 11. •JDI BUrrLZMEXTAL BECONBT2UCTION BILL. lie supplemental Reconstruction Bill P&i£d by the House this afternoon is sub etalially the same as that introduced into thclcnate last Thursday, except that the eecfcn giving commanding Generals of mill tarjdlstricts power to transfer their duties to GfVcrnors of States is stricken out, and a Defection inserted which provides that all elevens shall be held by ballot, and that ©fliers who make registrations and conduct •oledons shall be men who can take the oattofisca. The House made short work ■will! the measure, occupying but an hour in its consideration. The threatened a little filibustering but bally contented themselves with a mo tionp lay the matter on the table. This wasbst, and the bill was then passed by youlvr.iiajß Ip. every Republican voting m to affirmative. The UU win go to the Genre to-morrow morning. It i iafi already been treed upon by the Judiciary Commit tee oilhat body, and an effort win be made to tab It up for action in course of the day. Leading: Senators hope to get it through in tiro or three days at farthest. COMMISSIONER OP EDUCATION'. The President to-day appointed Henry Barnard, of Connecticut, the editor and pub lisher, Commissioner of the new Department of Education, created at the last session of Congress. An effort was made in the Hoa.-e to get an appropriation of fifteen thousand dollars to pay of Commissioner and clerks, and fit up his office, but the Demo crats joining with the few Republicans who opposed the establishment or the Bureau, prevented the consideration of the bill. REPUBLICAN SENATORIAL CAUCUS. The Republican Senators held another caucus this morning at which It wai agreed that Wilson’s bill,or something like mcntal to the Reconstruction act, should he passed, and that legislation with respect to the Southern States should stop there for this session. The caucus further agreed that nothingshould be done about fixing thetime for adjournment until this bill has become a law, cither by the President’s approval or by Us passage over his veto. It is plain, therefore, that adjournment cannot lake place under about two weeks. SENTENCE or A TREASURY THIEF. A. F. Lee, the Treasury clerk who ran away some weeks ago with thirty thousand dollars worth of bonds, and was arrested in St. Louis early last week, arrived here on Saturday. He made a full confession of his crime. Yesterday he was brought Into comt and arraigned. This morning he plead guilty, and was at once sentenced to three years’ imprisonment.

The promo tions of Generals Steele and Mower were not acted upon. TRIAL OF SURRATT. The general expectation that Surratt might be brought out for trial to-day was not realized.

The correspondence dates back to ISo9, and extends to December last It an- T»eajs from a letter written by Count Malewski, that French legislation does not comer on a Frenchman tUo richt Lu re noucce hia nationality, bnt he loses It by positive Jaw through naturalization in a torelgn country. If the Frenchman before he had lost that quality, shall have emi grated, thus placing himself oot of th* obli gation of military service, he would ;*F6nredly be punishable on his return to France, even though he should have obtained foreicn naturalization, and h“ mav be prosecuted as a deserter If he has not sat isfied the obligation of military service, secretary Seward, in repeated letters, a modification of French military laws.

T ouk » March ll.—The New York lu.tcs Washington special thus states the s .'. tua . , on , iU New Orleans prior to General thendau’s order on Friday last, prohibiting tpe election; • There being indications of a not. General Sheridan made ail necessary preparations to meet and suppress any dis turbance. He has four regiment®, two bat teries of artillery and a battalion of cavalry togciuer with Generals Mower, Koatz and Ba.dy Smith, in the city, ready to take part m any hostilities. The trouble originated In the fact that Governor Wells recognized the Reconstruction Bill, considered the state Government reduced to a Provisional Government, and himself to be Military Governor only. The municipal au thorities, however, did not recog nize th;s change, inasmuch ns the Recon struction Bill had not yet been-received in official form, and Mayor Munroo and Chiel of Police Adams ordered the police to obey no orders not issued by them. An election ?or City Councllmen w»s to take place on Monday, and Governor Wells, in his procla mation, ordered that the freedinen enfran chised under the Reconstruction Bill should vole, and the class dislranchised should not vote. Here was an opportunity of a re-en aclmcLl of the lormcr riots, but Sheridan’s order postponing the election mill the Dis trict Commander is appointed under the Re ci-nstructlon Bill, or special instructions covering the case are received, has restored order. DOUBTFUL CANDIDATES. The New York Washington special ea>s : The Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs have laid over the nomina tion of General Bartlett, of New York, as Minister to Stockholm. The nomination of Peter J. Sullivan as Minister to Bogota was also laid over. The nomination of John Quincy Adams was sent to the Senate on Saturday as Naval Oflicer for the port of Boston. He -wil not pass the Senate ordeal. Itvas expected that the President would send to the Senate on Saturday the nomina* tion for Naval Officer for New York. The eontett has narrowed down between Colo nel v. ood and Colonel Ludlow. The latter’s irundt are very eamiuine that he w ill uel it. * c OSIMITTEK OX OUDNANCE. **'l> ma, le in the preheat üblislia Joint Committee on Ordnance.n allcpeJ that the present r rE^^?,* f » > o CC n tQ tlie Ordnance Department is rninoas to all attempts ot improvement in that hianch of the service.

He and the Union people implore. Congress not to adjourn before providing the legisla tion suggested. Ould and Cramp have returned to Virginia.

General Gleason was introduced, not'os an orator, bat as a fighting man, now battling against the oppressor, and seemed to regard the chances of success as more hopeful than the meagre Cable telegrams would indicate.

Tlic cilT or Limerick, In the county or that , name, and built on the Shannon, is threatened from Rlhnallock, seventeen mile* from Uutciiy. The population of Kllmallock Isa lltllenvor I,‘iOO, situated on the line of the Cork & Dublin Hall way, it I? ratheran Important point. The ground Is historic: old castles, moats, fos-es. Danish re mains, Ac., are scattered all around it, while the country Is nccnllarly rich and fertile. In all the towns, with very few exceptions, rhe “police sta tion, so frequently mentioned in the despatches, is nothing more than a substantially built stone house, the windows of which nro stroncly ironed, while generally iron railings run around or in front of u at the distance oislx or seven feet. In towns they arc usually located in the most central and populous streets, and are so constructed, or located, as to command tneadlace-it avenues, or rather laces. The Imb policeman is more of a soldier than the police ofliceroi any other country. He is drilled like the regular soldles of the line, and has target exercise once or twice a month. The police sta tions are scattered all over the country, being larelymoreihantenmilesapart. iu many cases not overfire in regions which are looked on as dlsaflevtcd. He is an obnoxious character, re garden as a spy and au Informer, who does “ the dirty work” ot the Castle, meaning the celebrated fortress of Dublin and the authorities who there hold sway. Ireland, almost unlike any other conntry in Europe, is a network of small towns ana villages, as thickly studded as the dots on a crochet collar, the small, finer threads of which piece of femi nine attire will give an equally good Idea of the numerous hedgerows, stone walls; and dykes, which cut the surface of the country In all direc tions, (living It a more picturesque than utilita rian aspect. In such a conntry all warfare most be. In a great measure, irregular. No vast plains, except one, the celebrated Cnrragh of Kildare, no large fields, for thev arc all of the contracted di mensions of from half to two end half acres, very raiely exceeding five or six. It Is almost Im possible for cavalry to act with efficiency. The nimble mountaineer can Jump at a bound the dyke which the heavily accoutred horseman could not think of overleaping, biding away io the ravines of the adjacent mountains, almost everyone of which Is associated withsomo his toric memory. Limerick, one of the noted towns in Irish his tory, associated with innumerable sieges, deeds of daring and recklessness, from the first James and long before, Is the third city in Ireland. Tho population of ihc city and suburbs is trora 4j,oU.> toso,ooo,covcrirgsn area of about 4fi,000 acres. It Is distant from Dublin about 120 miles, and 1« connected liy rail with Waterford, oii’ the aoa coast. At Clonmel, one of tho Intermediate eta* tiers on the line of the Limerick and Waterford Railway, and about fifty miles from Waterford, there has been some fighting. Clonmel Is 104 miles from Dublin, and built on both sides of the River Suir. and on two islands, connected by bridges. Population,about 13,000. The country in this region is rather mountainous, the peaks of “linockmactbonn, 11 the “Drown Dills,” looking down on fertile fields, woodland, copse and river, from their towering height of 2,500 feet. To many an outlaw have their rocky defile- afforded protection and many are the ►lories which the Irish peasant tells of tne rebel saved and succored within their fastnesses. Holy Cross, a email town about thirty miles Jrom Ciotrocl, also on the lino of tho Cork ana Dublin Railroad, celebrated for Its old mon astery, founded about a century alter the Crusa ders started tor Palestine, was attacked and the arms taken from the police station- The plan of the Fouiaus seems to bo to attack ever? place whote there are arms, seize them if possible, and inarch t-n the large ciuoh. Tho railway between Watciford ord Clonmel has been torn op, and be fore troops can cono from the large el'les to tho succor of the small conntry towns they will doubtless have armed themselves aud be better prepared for an attack of the troops of the line. With the rail ways cut and tom up, rapid transportation of troops Incomes impossible. Killelagb, a coast guard station !n the County Clare, that most Irish of Irish counties, was attacked and the arm* taken away. Here it Is possible that they got soracrroali cons, as the coast-guard stations are usually fortified with some light cannon, to be aged In emeigenclcs, such as chasing smugglers, Ac. Kilfinane, where an engagement Is reported to have taken place, is about five miles from Kil mallock. Dublin, the Capital of Ireland, appears to havo been seriously threatened. Wickiow, celebrated for it* grand mountain scenery, and adjoining tho Cooity of Dublin, Is reported seriously diaasject ed. Here, perhaps, the insurgents have abetter chance than In any other part of Ireland, the Wicklow Mountains being a series of almost Im passable defiles. Away near Belfast, In the north, that stronghold of Oranvcism, tho rebels are found In force, threatening it, the second city in Ireland, famous for Its Hot-r trade. Belfast Is 101 mip s north of Dublin, and has a population of about IftJ.oCW. Twelve mile? from the sea, at the mouth of the Lagan. It is a point of considerable importance, and a for; months ago it was supposed that Pc nlanlsm was a thing unknown wltnln Its loyal limits. Tncro Is a strong garrison at Belfast, and success in that quarter can hardly be hoped for. According to accounts which have reached us the Feu ana ate fighting more or leas on a line of 2WI miles, running right through the heart of Ire land, along the principal lines of railways, and diverglrpot right arrlcs at Tipperary and Lime rick across the country from coiat to coast. Tip nerary Is, and ha? been from time Immemorial, a uot-bed.of disaffection; and wlih its sturdy popu lation the Government will have more trouble than in any other part of Ireland.

The future operations of tnls Company contemplate the erection, or cocsohdating of other mills wltn tacit enterprise, within the present year, tuning we mu amount of their Stock, and which will probably more than double the loregoing estimate ol product of Print, Manilla and TFrapping Papers.

MysttentJon has beep called to a circular poroorQna to be from one L. C. Wooaruffi as president of the “Hydrostatic Paper Company.” dated Niagara Falls, Febinary Ist, IBS7, addressed to paper manufacturer*, alleging that the process of bleaching paper pulp by pneumatic prepsore, offered to the public by tre, “Is a direct and positive Infringement of the patents and rights of the Hydrostatic Paper Company, and that my entire process Is embraced in that ot the said Hy drostatic Compary, and that ther will prosecute for Infringements all persons wbo attempt to use the pneu matic process under grants tram me. Such statements. In the free ol the facts ol the case, are absurd, and, I regret to be compelled to say, are maliciously lalse and libellous, ana I shall bold the author or authors thereof to a strict accountability. In the meantime I leave the merits ol the question to all men qualified to Judge. Tne majority of my patents, embraced In my “pro cess,” are anterior to any held by the “ Hydrostatic Paper Company, and 1 have only to leave the public to say who ore the tnCrtngcis thereof. I have submitted to most eminent counsel such ol my patents as bear dates subsequent to, together with copies of the patents under which the Hydrostatic t*s per Company claim their process, ana sivo herewith the opinion of such counsel on the question ot infringe ment. That this qnenion may be properly understood, I wld hete state that the patents held by the Hydrostatic Paper Conpany were assigned to them by toe patent* eee. Messrs. ILL. JONES and D. 2. FABQUHAB3ON and I am sol aware that their so-called process u em braced in any other patents whatever. My own process Is embraced in not less than ten (10) different patents, and tne use or operation of the pneu matic presyure I do not regard absolutely necessary la worklngmy process successfully, either In the nm redaction ot fibrous substances to paper pulp, or In bleaching the same; bat 1 believe the pneumatic prin ciple tar superior to the hydrostatic, and will prove more successlcl, so lar as either may be required. Respectfully, HARRISON B. MEECH. Fort Edwards, N. T n Feb. 20th, 1367. 'J’O ‘WHOM IT MAT CONCERN. As the attorney of HARRISON B. MEECH, I pro cured the several patenu he now holds for Improved Proteases tn the Manufacture of Paper Sloth, And am familiar with each and every one of them. 1 have also carefaUy examined the patents issued to Jones and Farqubarton, one bearing date March 13th, 13C6, for an Improved apparatus fur bleaching of paper stock, and one dated June sth. 1806, for an Improved process cf treating wood, etc* for the manufacture ol paper puip. These two are denominated the Hydro- I have no hesitation In saying that none of the pro cesses patented br Mr. MEECH, or which he holds, and which constitute the MEECH PROCESS, So called, are Is any manner identical with tho Hydro italic Process, nor do tuey Infringe tee same. T*o cl the patents held byilr. Meccb are those with which I have been connected as owner. Tba first Was isined to myseiroa n y own app icatloc, July Sist, iB6O, itwas for an improved process In the manufacture ot parift stock. The otherlssued to myself and Harmon B.Meech, for an Improvement in thehleachlsgof capes Each of these processes Involved the nse ol the F29SVSKATZC PBS88V&Z!, In the* msDcer described In each ot them re spectively. The n«e or pressure as a part ol sich pro cess, whether applied them respectively. The nse ot prcssorcasa pmofsoch process, whether applied hy steam, air, gas, water, or otherwise, ts not patentable In the present stated the art; bat an Improved tncth- sacb pressure moy be the snbjeet of a The Hydrostatic mode may bo the subject M a patent so tat as the camels n«« and useful. So like wise may be any other new and useful mod “—as the pneumatic. But such modes of producing the pressure are entirely distinct from each other. Neither the Hy drostatic or pneumatic process are patentable except as a n*w and nselul mooe of obtaining a result, as such they are entirely distinct from, acd Independent of, each other. 1 am well a equate ted with the ™«"v processes In use tor reducing straw, grass, etc~ to a condition suitable lor the manolactnre of paper, and I am clearlv of the opinion that the process practiced by Harmon B. iieecu, and known as tee Meech Process, Is superior to acy other, if not the only one by which the grasses can be succession? worked. That they can bo worked by hla process, both profitably and success fully, 1 know. __ JOEL TIFF AST. Albany.
