The _Gfeat Fraud of the Age. The most damaging commentary that has yet been made upon the conspiracy of the Disunionists will be found in the masterly report, which we print this morning, of the Hon. Isaac _JST.MoBBis, of Illinois, chairman of the special committee of five raised by the House of Representatives of the United States to investigate the facts conneoted with the fraudulent abstraction of the securities held in trust for the Indians, in the Department of the Interior. It will appear that most of the prominent actors in this unexampled robbery have either been in ardent sympathy with the Seceders, or are now acting openly in concert with them. Before we come to the material facts of the report of Mr. Morris, it is proper that we should call attention to the manner in which Governor Floyd was sustained and retained by Mr. Bbchahas, after repeated exposures of malfeasance in office. Ho other Chief Magistrate would have consented that such a man should act as one of his ...

FROM _WASHINGTOIT. Special Despatches to " The Press.11 LATEST NEWS By Telegraph to The Press. Washington, Feb. 11,1861- * A Bright Xaght Ahead—A Better Day Coming. I think it is now more than probable that the Border State propositions will be reported tomorrow morning, from tbe Peace Congress, by the oommittee headed by Hon. Jamss Guthrib, of Kentucky. There will be some _opnpsition to it, bat it will go through with much enthusiasm. It gives me great pleasure to say that thus far the commissioners appointed by Governor Cubtin, of Pennsylvania, have, with I believe one exception, done their whole duty. Should they continue to act in this spirit, that whioh looked like illiberality on his part will be vindicated as tbe best policy after all. Who's Who ? Hon. Qbobgb C. _Cbatvfobd, who reported the ordinance of secession which was adopted by the Georgia Convention, was a member of General TAYCtm's Cabinet, and was compelled to resign on account of his complicity in tbe cele...

8PKKCH 07 ME LINCOLN. Mr. Lincoln said be had come here to thank them for the support that had been given by Indiana to a true and. just cause. In relation to the matter of coercion and invasion, they are terms now much used with temper and hot blood. Let as not misunderstand their meaning, nor the meaning of those who use -them. Let as get their meaning from the men who deprecate the things they would represent by their use. What is the meaning of these words? Would the marching of an army into South Carolina with hostile intent be an invasion? I think it would_, and it would be coercion also if South Carolina was forced to1 submit. Bat if the United States should merely hold and retake its own _forta, collect its duties, or withhold Its mails where they were habitually violated, would any or all of these things be invasion or coercion ?

Miss Caroline Bf. _Bichings The following letter from Mils Richtngs appeared in the New York Tribune of yesterday.

To the people I owe all that I am. Here I have lived more than a quarter of a century; here my children were born, and here one of them lies buried. I know not how soos I shall see you again. A duty devolves upon me whiob is, perhaps, greater than that whioh has devolved upon any other man since the days of Washington.

_Oor information from Washington is to the effect that the Peace Congress will to-day or to-morrow receive the report of their business committee, of which Hon. Jambs Gotheis is the head, in favor of the Border State proposition. If this should be adopted by that august body of patriotic men,, it will go to the representatives of the people from the Capital of the United States with immense power. There ought not to be a moment's delay in all the free States in rallying the p eople in favor of the action o f the Peace Congress. Our belief is that there are not fifty thousand voters in Pennsylvania who will deelare against it at the polls. Mr. Lincoln's friends are largely interested TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12. 1861 %\t mttn in the adjustment of our national troubles, and we look to them to join hands with the Democracy, so as to satisfy and unite the Union men in the Border Slave States, and to put the Seceders and traitors in the Cotton States into an utterly indefensible positio...
