Benjamin called on Gov. Floyd, and was informed by him that the matter had not been submitted to the Attorney General, as was stated; that the drafts were issued in pursuance of a long-established custom of the office, that he was not aware of any law actually authorizing their issue; that he would inquire into it; that the acceptances were issued to Russell, Majors and Waddell only after he had ascertained that the trains for transportation which they had contracted to send from St. Louis to Utah had actually started on their way; that the payments were to be made under the contract in instalments as the trains arrived at different points; and that, having received intelligence of the actual departure of the trains, he had accepted, in advance of their arrival at the intermediate point, having a certainly that they would arrive. "I suggested to him," says Mr. Benjamin, "That I thought he was acting imprudently; that if any accident should happen to these trains by attacks by Ind

sell Chiquia securities and Florida bonds, the latter for Mr. Yulee, a Senator from that State. When asked from whom he received his information, he gave the answer usually resorted to in such cases, viz: he should not remember. The next heard of Mr. Russell is that he is on his way from New York to Washington, in company with Luke Lea, Esq., a banker in the latter city. Mr. Lea was formerly Commissioner of Indian Affairs, and is a partner of Mr. Russell in the banking business, at Leavenworth, Kansas. Mr. Lea is, however, careful to state in his evidence that he gave no intimation to Mr. Bailey that he might use the stocks he had in his charge belonging to the Indian Trust Fund. Mr. C. G. Wagner, who is nearly related to Mr. Bailey, and in whose hands was first placed his confession, states, in his evidence, given (your Committee are pleased to say) with full and honorable frankness, that he learned from Mr. Bailey that Mr. Lea did mention the stocks in the conversation betwe

the bonds were disposed of. From the testimony there procured, it was apparent that the bonds had been disposed of by Mr. Russell and his agent, and that Mr. Russell did not have it in his power to restore any of them. A limited number of them were traced into the possession of certain individuals and corporations, as follows: Merchants Benevolent Association, N. York city, (witness, Hector Morrison,) Missouri's$1,000 Meigs & Greenleaf, for account of C. W. Purcell & Co., Richmond, Va., (witness, C. A. Meigs,) Missouri's10,000 Mitchell, Schenectady, N.

srs. Russell and Bailey held a private interview in the third story of the Department, and within a few hours thereafter Mr. Bailey delivered to Mr. Russell one hundred and fifty thousand dollars of bonds at the room of the latter person, in Washington city, and on the same morning the recipient returned with them to New York. Mr. Russell states, that he left with Mr. Bailey one note of Russell, Majors & Waddell's in their stead, as security. Why Mr. Bailey abstracted the bonds, is a quess statement in various communications which have reached your Committee. It is not ascertained, either, that Mr. Bailey came suddenly into the possession of any large amounts of money. His bank account was kept with Messrs. Riggs & Co., of Washington city; and Mr. Riggs testifies, that between July and the 13th December his deposits increased largely over former ones, but amounted, in the aggregate, to not more than five or six thousand dollars. It is true, that this sum is a large one to be

t, $5,339,395 still in circulation; add to this amount the $798,000 of conditional acceptances received by Mr. Bailey in lieu of the bonds, and the aggregate is $6,137,395. Here, then, confining the statement to the records of the War Department, is a deficit of $6,137,395 to fall upon the holders of these acceptances, or to be assumed in some way by the Government. What was done with the acceptances. The evidence shows that the acceptances have been sold in various parts of the United States, wherever a bank or private individual could be induced to purchase. Inasmuch, however, as the amount of those that have been traced directly into the hands of present holders, constituted but a small fraction of the sum still unaccounted for, and as owners are daily filing additional claims at the War Department, it is deemed unnecessary to give a detailed statement of the discovered acceptances, or to make other mention of them than to refer to the papers relating thereto, presented b

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. Thirty or forty witnesses were examined, including ex-Secretaries Floyd and Thompson. The latter is exonerated from any complicity in the defalcation, but he, as well as the former Secretaries of the Interior, are censured for the insufficient manner in which the bonds have been held in that Department, there being no adequate responsibility attached to the custodian. According to Mr. Russell's own evidence, he did not know at first where the bonds of which he obtained possession came from. Mr. Balley was an agent for the negotiation or sale of the bonds, and Mr. Lea was an intermedia

still outstanding is very large. But Mr. Russell's statements are so rambling, vague and unsatisfactory, and he shows such utter ignorance of the details of his business, and such incapacity or unwillingness to make an exhibit of his affairs, that your Committee have considered it much safer to base their conclusions upon the records furnished by the War Department.--These records are of a character too peculiar to be passed without comment. Important testimony of Senator Benjamin--Mr. Buchanan notified of Gov. Floyd's System of issuing acceptances. Mr. Benjamin, who promptly appeared at the request of the Committee, and testified with commendable and courteous frankness, states that during the first session of the present Congress, some twelve or eighteen months ago, he was written to by the Attorney of Duncan, Sherman & Co., of New York, and his opinion requested as to the legality of acceptances issued by Gov. Floyd to Russell, Majors & Waddell. It was mentioned in t
