The Muppleuientnrv Reconstruction Hill. The last atone ? n the foundation wall of reconstroc ttw was Cnolly placed to-day by the agreement of the Mr* bouses in the report of tho conference oommitte a ?D tho amendments to the Senate Supplementary Ro ?enstruction bill. This result is practically a recession ?f the House from its amendments requiring a majority of nil the registered votes for the ratification of the Stale constitutions, instead of a majority of the votes ?eat, as provided in the Senate bill?"at least one-half ?f all the registered voters voting upon the question of ?nth ratification." The other amendments agreed upon were of a comparatively unimportant character, one of them affixing the penalties of perjury to tho registration ?moors violating their oaths, anl the other merely re peating, in effect, a provision of the Reconstruction act ?f last session, requiring that Congress shall be satisfied with ami approve of the Mate constitutions when rati M. Affairs in Virginia. From Richmond I loam that General Schoficld's ap proval of the action of the Senate in calling a convention is an indication of the desire of that body to meet the requirements of the Military hill, and will influence the House to follow their example upon reassembling after the recess, which will expire upon the 10th of April. Their constituents will doubtless fores them into this measure before that lime. The people of Buckingham ?onntv held a meeting on Monday last, at which the Military bill was endorsed and their representatives in structed to vote for the call of a convention, though Dotting bad been previously said upon the subject. It has been rumored that General Schofield was about to change his headquarters from Richmond to Fortress Monroe, but as Richmond is designated as headquarters a General Orders No. 10 the report is without founda tion. He will send his family there during the summer months. . 1 find there is great destitution prcvailng In various portions of Virginia among the poor of both races.

Heavy SMCheiH iu the southwestern portion of tho State have Mralled tn de-iruction ot immense quantities of pro perty, including mills, \c., and the crops to a large ex tant have been destroyed. This will further iocreaso the starvation. Union Demonstration in Alabama. A despatch from 8c Ira a, Alabama, states that the largest meeting ever witnessed in that city took place yesterday.

The I'renirient of the Sennit* in Kitvor ?f "Fair Piny." An Illustration of the free light propensities of the now presiding officer of the Senate took place on Satur day, which, though in contrast with the dlgnilied punc tiliousness of the late incumbent of the place, is quite complimentary to his love of fair play. During the rather exciting debate on the Supplementary Recon struction bill two or three sharp passages took place between senators Trumbull and HowarJ relative to some of the nm< iidm?n Ls proposed, the latter resenting- very warmly a statement made by Mr. Trumbull that tli'o?e who were sustaining the amendments proposed were placing obstructions in the way of reconstruction. Mr. Trumbull rose in reply, aDd, without addressing bimsalf to the Chair, proceeded to lecture at a sound rate Senators Howard and Edmunds, turning his back upon the Chair and pitching into the offending Senators in the most ap proved style of parliamentary fisticuffs. Senator John son, who was standing at the Clerk's desk, near the chair, called Mr. Wade's attention to the parliamentary indecorum, and suggested a call to order. The Chair, however, failing to see any serious violation of rules, indifferently turned hie eyes upon the scene aud kindly said, "Oh, let them light it out, let thmn fight it out." The friendly little mill ended without interruption from the referee. Prohibition of the Importtulon ol' StroiiK l,i<iuor? into NicnriMKOit.
