In the editorial article commenting upon the report of the committee raised in the House of Representatives to investigate the, facts connected with the fraudulent abstraction of the bonds belonging to the Indian Trust Fund from the Interior Department, the following passage occurs: 11 This is the first time, at least in tbo history of onr own country, when a Cabinet Minister was so* lemnly convicted by the resort of a committee of the House of Representatives, of the hig hest misdemeanors in office, whioh have subjected him te » criminal indiorment on the finding of the Grand Jury of the District of Columbia.

Card from Hon. I. N. Morris, of Illinois.. Editor of Thk Fbxss ¦: In your published report of the _Select Committee, appointed to investigate the late fraudulent abstraction of bonds from the Ix tenor Department, I notice several errors; a few of the most material of which I wish you to correct. Ycu have the amount of acceptances, which Mr. Russell stated he still retained, " a little less than two millions." It should read "a little less than two hundred thousand." It is also published that Mr. Russell left with the first bonds in the;«« morning." He left in the " evening" of the day he received them- Where it is stated Mr. Russell appeared on sneh a day in " December," it ought to read |: January." The work "fixes," should read read " fix." I might point out several typographical errors, bat the mind of the reader will readily correct them. Respectfully, I. H. Morris. WASHiweion, Feb. 14,1861.
