tliose lmt ni-tcd on ftt tho closo of thc session just
endcd b'ccoming void, tho Biiliject of thc ttcatiea bc
foio thfl Coinniittec on Foreign Rclations waatakcn
up, on inotion of Senator Sumiier. Tho first oonsid
end w|N tho Natnialization treaties with Baden,
Wurt<-mburg, and RMaBj and theTradca-mark trcaty
with B.lgium. Theso hrving rccoivod thc favorahlc
npoil of tho Conimittco, were ronfinncd withont
matcrial dcbate. Mr. Snmnor thcn callcd up the
Paricn Ship Canal troaty. hegotiated by Caleb Cush
ing, and upon it made a long apeeefa in favor of rati
litation. Ho showed the importance of thc
work in a comuiercial pomt of viow, and
tho prcat benctit tho llnited SUtaa
would dorive froni it. Ho also domonstrated it8
importance to all the nations of Kurope. and said
that by uniting tho Atlantic and Pacitic oceana
thty would bc doing tnore for tho advanccnicnt of
tho conuncrre and prosperity nf tho world than any
othor mcasuro sinco tho C'hriatiau era. Senator
Shennan niade a Bpecoh in opposition to ccrtain
articlea in tho trcaty whicli lic thouifht were tAo
?mell in the intenst of a conipany, and ho exprcaacd
tho belief that tho Governinent of tho I'nitcd Statcs
would not dcrivc as nmch bcnefit from tlic canal a*
80IDO pnvatc imlivid\ials, and that it would not
acfoiuplish tho gtcat revolution in MMMM
that its frieuds claiuied would toflow
the ratilication of tho trcaty. Mr. Kdnmnda
mado a Bpeeeh in its favor, taking snbstan
tially the gronnds of Mr. Sunmcr in relation
to tho importance of tho Canal. and giving additional
argnruents iu favor of a speedy conlirmation. Tho
discuasion bid fair to continuo at great lcngth, but
at tliis opportune inoinent. Gcn. l'orter anivcd from
the White BoMB, bearingtho Foreign nominationa,
which havc btvii 60 long and Koatmously lonked for.
As soon as tbe Gcncrul appcarcd at the door of tlic
Sonatc, it WM evident tothe prcsiding officcr tli.it
the Senators were in no frame of uiind to procced
with the consideration of trcatics. and thcliarnn
nuttcr was laid ovcr. The nomiintioiis wcre tlnn
otxMicd, tho grcatcst intorcst Iwir.g manifc.-ti d
throughout tho Chantber. Tho noininatioiiR
were at onco refcrrcd to the appropriato
coinniittees, and Mr. Sumner was aguiu on
the rl.?<>r. Ho gave notico that he would
call up the trcaty ol the Alabama clainiH to-morrow.
It wa? Micgentcd byahadingSenatortliat thistrcaty
and thed^bato* thercon hhould lxi niade juililic, and
it in likdy an cflitrt will W madc lookmgto that end.
Tho Senator thought. if thc debaten upon tlio trcaty
were maile iu opcn sc.^ion, it would havc au cxcc!
lent ehY< t upon thc pcuj.lc of boffa countiics. lic
thought it wao dtic to the Amcrican yopla and to
the Koobh GovtriuiM-nt that tbin important mattcr
ehould 1m- coiihidcred in opcn scu^iou, that the ivorld
might km>w the HctitiinentH of the peopto of

that thc Knglihh Govemnient doos not understand

Senators who havo rxprcRM-d tho naine
