Mr. Covode, from the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, submitted a report of the evidence taken in the matter of the Washington relics at Arlington House, accompanied by the following resolution, viz:

Resolved, That the articles known as the effects of George Washington, the Father of his Country, now in the custody of the Department of the Interior, are of right the property of the United States, and any attempt on the part of the present administration, or any department thereof, to deliver the same to the rebel general Robert E. Lee is an insult to the loyal people of the United States; and they ought to be kept as relics in the Patent Office, and ought not to be delivered to any one without the consent of Congress.

Pending which,
Mr. Thomas L. Jones submitted the following amendment, viz:

Strike out all after the word “ Resolved,” and insert in lieu thereof the following:

"That the articles in the Patent Office which hare been identified as the property of Mrs. Mary Custis Lee, and which were taken without the authority of the government from her home at Arlington, as they are of but little value except as heirlooms in her family bequeathed to her by her father, George Washington Parke Custis, be at her request restored to her possession.
