a Mr. Wille) Insisted that he h:??l thus tbown the
necessity for putting arm? Into lho bands ol the orderly
portion nf that community, white and black,
i Mi DRAKE said that the outcry ?gainst this bill 1*
caused by the faot that it ha* a sung in It, namely that
the arraa are to be dlstrihuted to the loyal Geveraoreet
the States, He, for one, waa m fa\ <>r of ezpressiBg in the
bill tho Intention of protecting the i?..\al men in the Booth
at the bull?.tin?? box, and if he had his way he would pat
a Bprincrfl? id musket in th?-ir banda. These stories were
the machination? of designing im-n.
kfr. ANTHONY ?aid the uniform practice had hen to
distribute arma according to Federal repreaentatlon In
both houses-. He iiskcd to amend by providing that
'.',"?" be edited for each state.
Mr. BHERMAX (Rep., ohim-Wh.,t doe? Rhode Island

Mr. ANTHONY-We made very good use of them both
In the iiorr rebellion and in that of winch the Datf re?
bellion was but a prototype,
Mr. net KAI.i;\V (I)? in., I'enn.I-The arm? can be bot?
ter cared for in the Government arsenals than in the
btatcs. Any surplus of serviceable urtns can be Bold.
Mr. MORTON?The whole Rebel population have- their
arma remaining from tho war, while the new State Gov
j veriinietit.s ha\e ncttherarnisnor money to buy them. No
BUV Will deny their right to have them unless he wishes
to see them overturned by violence. From Indication?
lure to-night it can bo seen thai tin' Issue set forth in

to overthrow them. If possible. Is It not, then, necessary
to enable tin m to tiefend themselves i
Mr. HOWARD called attention to the President's decla
ration, in to-day's veto, that tho reconstructed govern
nient? were null and void. According to that doctrine
the President, in oaae ?>f a conflict |between those govern?
ment? and Rebel organizations under tho Johnson gOV
ernmente, would refuse to protect them with the army.
He ?Mr. Howard) would be a-diaim d of himself, then, If
in did not pint? rt them. The Rcpubluaii party w?s pr??

by tho Iiennxratlo Party and the President. If war
must limn-, they would not shrink from If. Lot those

Mr. DAVIS spoke again, arraigning the Republican
paify for it* conduct since the close of tho war>
Mi. Anthony's amendment was adopted.
Mr. Dooi.ITTLE (Dem., Wls.) took tho floor shortly
after 10 o'clock, ami propoeed to uiiieud tho ?h-talls of the

h?. ??.iiaiii, [eii enough for thepeaea establishment. Hs
.idemned the bill as proposing to arm ?me party against
the other, and arced that if any military forc? is t?> be
k.pt there should be a regular army. He Implored Sen
ators not to ltiaiiguiate a war of race?. No little amuse?
ment was ereateo t?y Mr. Doolittle addressing Senators
Beveral i inns as " l-'ellow-cltuens."
Mr. WILBOM disavowed for the Mil anv purpose but a
legitimate redai tlon ?>f tbe army t?. the lowest point oon>
Blstent with?afety. it was impossible to reoaee II te
10^*00 men, there being In the Booth l?t,<)00 alone. The
Ashburn atmli he prooounced i*n organized morder, it??
denied that Ashburn wa? kll!e?t in a house of ill-faiiie, as?
serting thai it wa? a respectable house where Ashourn
h.oi found ?belter.
Mr. Doolitib-'s amendment was declared out of order.
Mr. VICKER8 (Dem., M?l i Oafofod an mu. miment,
providing that tin? ?littrlbution of arms shall not take
