The great fraud. Report of the Special Committee of the House on the Fraudulent Abstraction of the Bonds of the Indian Trust Fund--Over-issue of $6,000,000 of Acceptances by Secretary Floyd. The report of the Select Committee of the House of Representatives, of which Mr. Morris, of Ill., is chairman, gives a detailed account of the facts relative to the abstraction of the Indian Trust Bonds.

Company "I." --Nearly all the members of Capt. Morris' command live in the upper part of the city, and it is of course very inconvenient for them to attend company drills down town. They therefore propose to erect an armory on Leigh street, at a moderate cost, to which the men can easily resort, and thus receive the benefit of frequent military instruction. The ranks are rapidly filling up with the right sort of material for soldiers, and we hope that any effort that may be made towards promoting the efficiency of the Company will be generously supported by those citizens who are immediately interested.
