Senator Sumner's Resolution.
As the debate on Senator Sumner'« res
olution in relation lo the sale of arms by
tbe L'uited Slates to France, during the
lata Kranco-I'ruaaiuti war, progresses, the
people are becoming more intensely inter
ested oil the question. It was at first t
cloud no bigger than a man'* hand ; now
il darkens the whole polilieitl sky. The
fset ia, uur government t-ohl three hundred
Slid fifty thousand stand of arma and fifty
batteries of artillery—going su fur in its
spirit nf ttccmimnnlntioti as to manufacture
a supply of cartridges to go with the arms
Of course our government did Dot sell
these arm» directly to the French govern
ment; hut tbe arms certainly did go di
rectly to Franco, and were u*cd in the
manner indicated. It has been intimated
Unit some of them went lo Germany and
were used against the French ; hut this
docs not cxcus* tbe infraction of the inter
national l«w in the eyes of tha English ; it
only proves that wo are guilty of two in
fraction instead oue. Iu the face nf these
Ikcts, why do Morton, Conkling, Uarlsn
and all the Grant Senators oppose an in
vestigation into the whole matter I The
New York Journal of Commerce properly
declares "a full investigation of the ease is
due; First, In the French government,
which respectfully asks for it ; recoud, to
tbe German goccrnnirn', which basa right
to know tbe facts; third, to the American
ä e, who rennet sanction Ihe alleged
lure from neutrality, and who de
mand to be tnld whether any of the Wash
ington officials shared in tbe profits of
operation; fourth, lo the Administration
itaelf, which, if innoeent of tbo malfeas
ance, a* we must hold it to bo until tbo
contrary is proved, should desire the most
searching inquiry." But when a commit
tee wa* diauiuided in the else of tbe New
York Custom-house, tbe friends of Gen
erra! Grant denounced the movement, as
they do that now under discussion in the
Boute, md boldly mnonnoed there was
nothing to investigate. That committee
was raised, however, and the moat as

it was thought ndrisnble to build a chapel. No
