Tbe Senate at a later hour in rue day agreed to tbc first and thlid amendments of the House with out a division, and dlsagieeed as to tbe second one by a vote of twenty-one lo twenty-three. This question as to tbe number of rotes necessary for a ratlGcailon of the Constitution Is therefore tbc only matter of difference between the two brunches. Tbe House by a vote of ninety-eight to twenty-eigbtlcalets that that shall require a ma jority of the whole number of registered electors, while tbe Senate Insists when an members In the •city are present, by vote of twenty-seven to twenty four that It may be by a majority of tbe rotes cast at tbe said election, provided that at least half of all who are registered most vote on the question of ratification. Ihe bill goes to the Bouse again to-morrow morning. If that body recedes on this point tbc measure is ready for tbe President. If it refuses to recede, as probably it will, the bill must go into a Committee of Con ference. A strong effort will be made to dispose vt tbc subject in some way to-morrow. THAI). STEVENS. It was generally expected that Mr. Stevens would deliver his great confiscation speech to day. He baa been unwell for several days, but was in his seat awhile thl? afternoon, going Dome when It became apparent that be could not get tbc floor tin a lale hour. His friends will try to give him the floor to-morrow. THE NEW NAUTLANB EENATOU. The debate in the Senate this afternoon on the case of Mr. Thomas, the new Senator from Mary land, occupied three honre. It gtewomol amo tion made by* Hr. Howard, as soon as the credentials were presented, to refer them to the Judiciary Committee. This was supported daring the discussion by Messrs. Howard, Nye, Conness and Sherman, and opposed by Messrs. Trumbull, Fessenden, Johnson and Davis. The grounds on which the reference was asked were that Hr. Thomas showed disloyalty by resigning from the Buchanan Cabinet because reinforce ments were sent to Fort Snmter, that he was in sympathy with tho rebels all through the war. and that he has since his election denounced the majority of the Senate as traitors. Kcverdy Johnson defended him as best ho could from these charges. Hr. Tram bull and Mr. Fessenden held it to be the plain duty oflhe Senate to admit him to his seat, and then. If any formal charges were made against him, go into an Investigation. They thought no man could be kept out on common rumor as to his standing. No decision was reached, and the question comes up again to-morrow. -LDJOtnu.TLEJfT. The time for adjournment has not yet been fixed. A prominent Western Senator prepared a resolution, this moraine, for a recess from next 'Thursday to the first Monday 10 November, which would have been offered in the Senate this after noon. had the Supplemental Reconstruction BUI been finally disposed of. It may, perhaps, come lu to-morrow. So many members of the House are going away that a quorum cannot easily he kept here beyond this week, and an adjournment by Saturoay seems every day more probable. There is some talk of a caucus to-morrow even ing. to settle this question and tpifr over some oth er matters. COLORADO. The C dorado election call, about which there were so many contradictory despatches at the tim* of the bread-and-butter Philadelphia Convention last August, will probably come up In the House to-morrow. The Committee on Elections report against giving the scat to anybody till full inves tigation has been made. They find that Hunt, the Conservative, who holds the Governor’s certi ficate of election, was reported by the authorized Board ofCanvassers ai havingrcceived S,-t2i,while Chllcott, Republican, received 3,959. They say, regarding it, that Hunt baa a certificate that Gov ernor Cummings informed them that on the r>tb of last September the canvass of the votes cast fo; delegate was had in his presence by the board of canvassers; that two of said board found a ma jority of all the votes had been cast for Chllcott, and that one of the board dissented from this con clusion, and that he (Governor Cummings.) con sidering himself one of the board, agreed with the dissenting member, making a tic, whereupon be determined the elec tion himself, and made a certificate in opposition to the conclusion of two members of the board, and they add that the certificate thus appears to have been issued in violation of the Territorial laws in order to reverse the facta of the canvass. A minority of the committee, consisting of Herr, Nicholson and Poland, report Ham Isprima fade entitled to the seal, and Chllcott must contest it. bole mu’ akd eailoiis’ mass xeetikg. Tbe soldiers and sailors held a mass meeting this evening, at which General C. C. Andrews, of Minnet ola, and Representative Perham, of Maine, were the chief speakers. General Acdrows eulo gized the soldiers and sailors for the ready man ner in which they had resumed the dative of citi zenship, and when the country was disposed to pay them anything more he recommends that fvery soldier who shall have occupied in good Jalth one hundred and sixty acres of public laud under the Homestead Act, lor five years, shall reed re one hundred dollars.

Mr. JOHNSON presented the credentials of Phillip F. Thomas, Senator elect from Maryland tor six years ending March 4,1571. and asking that they be read and Mr. .Thomas be sworn in. The credentials were read, when Mr. HOWARD moved they be referred to the Jndiclary Commit* tee. stating in reply to a question from Mr. JOHN* SON, that it was a matter of common rumor thit the gentleman wno was an applicant for admission to tbc Senate sympathized nith the rebellion in the late elvdwar. Mr. JOHNSON did not know what minora Hr. Howaa a referred to in relation to any pardca’ar act ot (be Senator elect which had given aid and commit to rebels. Perhaps he referred lo the fact mentioned on the floor of the Senate on Saturday, that Mr. Thomas, while Secretary of the Treasury, transferred a large amount 01 money from New York to Louisiana, that it might be there to assist the rends. He (Johnson) hod mentioned tha* to his colleague, and was authorized lo say there was nor a word of troth in It. The transfer oi fords he mads while Secretary of the Treasury in ISGU, was of some seven or eight Hundred thousand from New York to Washington, to meet the necessary disbursement of the Treasury, and the whole of U was disbursed here. The only other sum transferred by bis orders was 80,000 or lOn.OOO from Arkansas to New Orleans, where It was ad expended before tbc rebellion com menced. He bad already said in what be bad elated of the character of the honora ble gentleman. that his word on that subject would convey with all who knew bim the most absolute confidence. It is possible Mr. 1 homaa might have supposed the war could have been avoided. He was not alone in tbit opinion. It was entertained by thousands in the loyal Stales. Mr. HOWARD said his objection to Hr. Thnmas wae ibe language attributed to him la the speeches be made after the election. He was reported to have said that the senate of tbc United i-Ules had done all In its power to dissolve the Onion by war. in whlcn they failed, and wc.*enow attempting to destroy It by legislation. He (How ard) thought that a very unkind remark on the purl ot toe applicant, if be made that remark. Ifa man could be coiled strictly loyal and attached to the Government of the Lulled States, who held that the entire action of Congress in the prosecution of the late rebellion was an ebon on the part of Congicssto dissolve the Union, then be (How «d) bad lost lo a great degree his knowl edge off ha force of language. Mr. JOHNSON knew nothing of Ihe speech to which Mr. Howard referred. Whnt he old know was, that in a letter accepting bis nomination, there would be found nothing inconsistent with his duties to the country. The letter of Mr. Thomas was then sent to the Clerk's desk and read. Mr. NYE said it was claimed by the loyal men of Maryland that the election of the Legislature by übicb Mr. Thomas has been elected, was a pal pable trend upon the existing laws of Maryland. It *as asserted by those Onion men that they had a law staediog on the statute book that prevented all persons sympathizing with the rcbeUlon from voting at their elections. At the last election that law was disregarded, and per sons of all kinds, the worst rebels among them, were permitted to vote, and by their votes a Legislature was elected that bad sent the hon orable gentleman here ss Senator. When Thomas rerignea from Mr. Buchanan’s Cabinet, be wrote a letter stating his reason for so doing: That be was forced to leave from the fact that be could not concoriu the act to rclafore Fort Sumter. He denied entirely the power ofcoerclon. Mr. TRUMBULL spoke at some length on ilie eobjccL He was opposed as much as any man could be to admitting traitors or ene mies of the Government as members of ihe - Sen ate. He was in favor of receiving none but loyal men; but the objections to Mr. Thomas were sustained by nothing but rumors. No specific charge was made by any Senator against him. Mr. T. was certainly entitled to be sworn m unless there was something to overcome the pi Una facie case which was in bis favor. It any Senator could bring a specific charge against the applicant, he would go as far as was necessary in making an investigation; butuc understood that Mr. Thomas was willing to take the oath required by law. If so, he has a right to be admitted, un less there was a distinct charge made against him. Mr. FESSENDEN said he was unwilling by his vote to establish so dangerous a precedent to re fuse to receive a Secatorwhocame here with prop er credentials, ana baa been elected in pursuance of jaw, and against whom there was no specific charge from any responsible source. Mr. bHLRMAN read from the letter of Mr. Thomas resigning LU office as Secretary of the Treasury ol Bcchanau’a Cabinet, in which Mr. Thomas says: “ The United States has no power to collect the custom duties ortho portot Charted ton.” This as an endorsement of the right of secession. It at least placed the applirautln an emharrassin tr pi sitlou, which required an explan ation. Bat be would call attention to the speech of Mr. Thomas, to which reference had been made. In that speech the Senate was referred to ae a body of men who always bad been and were now traitors to the Union. . Mr. MORTON said the quotation he just beard was sufficient to justify on Inquiry. If what Mr Tbomns said was not true, tne converse of tue proposition was true; if the Senate was a body of traitors, Ibomaa was a loyal man; bat if the Sen ate was not a body ol traitors, then Xbomas was a disloyal man. Mr. SAULSBUBY raid the report of the speech of Mr. Thomas, from which this extract bad beea read, appeared in the Baltimore Am'riCin, lie read the speech In the Baltimore Gazette % and YOL. XX. there eas no each language attributed to the that report. Aflersome further debate‘he subject, waa, on motion of Hr. CHIMES, postponed till to-mor row.

Mr. TRUMBULL called up tbe Supplementary Reconstruction Bill, tbe question being on con currence in the House amendments to tbe senate amendments. The first amendment, which was of an unim portant character, was agreed to. The second was to require a majority of all registered voters In stead of as by tho senate bill a majority of tho votes cast, to adopt a State Constitution. After debate the amendment waa disagreed to —2l against 24. 'The next amendment of tbe House relates to punishment for swearing falsely under this act. Agreed to.

Rules Governing the Granting of Requisitions on tbe State Executives— Ariiclesof Association Filed, Ac. (Special Despatch to the Chicago Tribune.] bpniNopuaD. Hi., March 18. The Governor to-day issued his proclamation based upon the late Important enactment of the State Legislature relating to requisitions upon tbe Governors of other States and Territories for the return of fugitives from Justice. It Is a lengthy aud somewhat cumbrous document, the chief ob ject of which would seem to be to throw addition al safeguards around personal liberty, to keep sharpers from speculating on the Treasury, or travelling for private cods at public expense. It may also, to seme extent, diminish the number of convicts annually sent to the State Penitentiary, a result much to be desired, in view of the over crowded stale of that Insulation. Tho first pre requisite to the granting of a requisition Is the presentation ofapetitionlo tho Governor, which shall set forth the name of the fugitive, tbe crime charged, tbe county in which it was committed, and the time, as near as possible, when each fu gitive fled. It must also contain tbe rame of the agent sent to receive him. a certificate oi the Judge of the con-ay in which the crime is said to have been commuted, stating that the ends of Justice require the return of tbe fugitive. If tbe application shall be based uponanlndictment,ocopythercofmust bo pre sented, duly certified, under seal, by tbe Clerk of tbe Circuit Court, if the application shall be basco anon an affidavit, the same shall set out tbe crime charged in the words of the statute, de fining crime, all of which most bo written In a plain, legiolc hand. Applications based upon either of tbe foregoing 1 grounds must be accompanied by an affidavit that 1 tbe party named ia a fugitive from justice, and that the affiant believes him to be io the State or Tcrritorv, and must also set forth tho grounds of such belief: all affidavits to be made before a Jus tice of ite Peace In the county where the crime is charged to havo been committed. Nofees, expense or mileage will be paid ontol the Stale -Treasury unless the messenger shall actually return tho fu gitive to the proper county for trial; nor will any fees or mileage be paid without au affidavit before some Justice as to tbe miles travelled, the points to and from, and the particular route travelled, and the correctness of snch account must be certi fied to by tbe Connly Judge. tbe Secretary of Slate Is commanded to cause tbe law and proclamation to be printed, and fifty copies thereof to be furnished to the Mayor of Chicago, ten copies to each County Judge in tbe State, and ten copies to each city in the State of over five thousana inhabitants.
