The articles were pieces of household furniture, clothing, dishes, and papers which formerly belonged to General Washington. Secretary Browning has decided to grant the request, and an order has been given to turn the articles over to the person deputed by General Lee to receive them :"

Resolred, That the Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds be directed to inquire into the subject and ascertain whether the matter so published is true, and if true, to ascertain by what right the Secretary of the Interior surrenders those articles so cherished as once the property of the Father of his Country to the rebel general-in-chief; and that said committee report fully upon the subject by bill or otherwise; and that they have power in pursuing said investigation to send for persons and papers and leave to report at any time; and that the Secretary of the Interior be requested not to permit said articles to be removed until such investigation shall be had.
