The ladies were dressed in the highest style of fashion and extravaganoe, especially Mrs. Lincoln — The gentlemen were generally very plainly attired. About twelve o'clock: the supper room was thrown open, and exhibited one of the finest displays of g&slronomio art ever seen in this oountry—a temple of Liberty, a fort and a war steamer, admir- ably moulded in candy, and a ton of tur- keys,, ducks, venison, pheasants, pert- t-idges, Ac., all ...

As to (be charge of fraud made against the United States Seoretarj of the Inte- rior, a Washington correspondent says: The rumors of dishonesty and peoula tiun in the Western Department, have grown so numerous that 8eoretary 8mith has announced his intention to have them thoroughly investigated. It is to be hoped that the frauds, if there be any, will be ferreted out, and a publio example made of the guilty. So far, the rumors are gen- erally against some of his subordinates. From a letter, of the 4th, by the same correspondent, we get the annexed: The Blenker d'Utassy squabble still ag- itates the Qerman regiments. When the matter comes before the court martial, it is hinted that some singular peculations on the part of field officers will be divulged.
