V'A>-in\e"ON, Vel) U-V-About it month ago the
Hourn. p__??ed I resolution a?kinn the I'n-sidi nt to
iuiiii-.il ?i Btatoaaal of the extent and nature of the
contracta, purdj_?*e<?, aud expenditures for the In?
dian service made Hin?e July 1, W3, settiiiR forth
which, if any, were made or entered into without
?aadaaaaOO with the Hoard of Indian Commissioner?'
appointed by the President, and the extent and
description of contrait? and vom -hers objreted toby
saidCommisaiouers,and stafiiu to what i xf-^nt pay?
ments have hem made thereon awainst their re?
monstrance. This information has been iorwanled
by the President to C-oaaraaa, with a long letti r
from the Secretary of the Interior, arguing that it
wau by no lneaus necessary that the accounts and
vouchers hhould be examined by the Indinn Com?
missioners or the ExocutiveCouiinittivP of the Hoard.
The Secretary naya it will lie gratify inn to him if
Congress will make the action of the Ex-r-ntivc
Committee final, and relieve his Department of such
responsibility. If this is not done he aiks that the
Indian Commi??-ioners may be requind to hold their
sesnions in the Indian Hureau, whir? all the facts
are at hand.f?%From an examination of these
accounts it appears tliat for half tho
?fatal year ending June '?0 next the Indian
Bureau has, in the classes ol expenditmes dssrrihed,
exhausled 94,CX>,?(r? of the approjniation for the
current hscal year.
IbeTe are manv interesting item? in the account
furnished. Tb? Hon. (??ranville M. Dodge, who wa?*
a general in the l.nion Army, a member of Congress
subsequently from Iowa, and largely inteiested,
while in Congress and since, in the Cniori l'ai die
Railroad, of whisb he was at one time Engineer,
occupies the most prominent po?iti<>n in ?onnectioii
with the expenditures. Gen. Dodges latest achieve?
ment, to which the attention of the public has lieen
attracted, was his famous trip into Texas, through
't, aud out of it, with a Deputy 8ergeaut-at-Arms at
tu- li?-i?;- ?.),,, had a stibpona to bring him before
Wilson's Cr?dit Mobilier Committ?..?, togivotosti
mony regarding the mysterious distribution of sn
immense sum of money that had fallen into bis
hands as special counsel fees. Dodge now turns np
a* one of the hearimt Iuduu contractors on tbe
frontier.
The first hea-r? contract awur.lcl to this gentle?
man. Ml ont,ug Ui the rcfHirt. was made bv OOOS

HIE POINT LOOKOUT luitiKMn nit.i.
Hie Point Lookout Railroad bill caine i.p on Sat
unlay as unfinished busiin-s in the Honse, and was
disposed of for the present by rateaQM to tho C0111
mtttce of the Whole. It was stroug.y suspected that
there wa-? something more in the bill than the mere
permission to ?i Uval railroad to eut?-r and travel se
the City of Washington, lad that " the cat under
'h'- im al" was a scheme of the Baltimore anti Ohio
Mailmad to obtain a very eligible location for a new
station in the imm?diate vicinity of the Treasury
and the pi. ?cipal hotels. If it had been a question
between tue interests of the public and those of a
railru-d company, the public would no doubt have
got the worst of it ; hut fortunately there is a rival
road controlled by the Pennsylvania Central
that always antagonizes the plans of the Haiti
more and Ohio. The Pennsylvania members, who
of course are not controlled by Tom Scott, were
exceedingly active in protecting the interests of the
Government from the detriment they were likely to
suffer if the new road was allowed, as proposed, to
traverse the public parks and reservations along the
river front, and to cross the Eastern Branch near
the Navy-Yard. They were no doubt right."The
road oaght not to lie built without greater restric?
tions being put upon it than the bill contains, ami
perhaps should not in any case be permitted to oc?
cupy the public streets and grounds, as contem?
plated. It i>. however, a fact worth remembering
that many of the members ?rhoOpposed the BBBBaafo
?helped obtain for Mr. Scott's Baltimore and ?Potomac
Rood.tWOJTOMB ago, a graut winch has enabled it
tor nu tin '? ni> ground available for a hue public
park within the city limits.
Till. ?BflOtfOf TIlK COSII.V COMMA IN TUE TA III tt
UII.L.
According to the statement of the engrossing
clerks of the House, the costly comma which put
foreign fruit? on the tree list, and _n_vde the Treasury
lose about $-.IKKI.(?M of levenue, was put in by
mistake hy a Senate clerk, and was not insorted in
the enrolled act iu the State Department. The
manuscript amendment offered in the Senate, from
which the Senate eugrossing clerk copied, reads:
On page-, line-, after the word-. Insert "fruir
plr-inl?. tr??pi? .,'? sud scuu-trnplral, for Hie purp ** of
propagation ana cultivation.'
The word '?fruit" is interlined above the word
" plants ;'' no comma appears after it, nor is thi io
any hyphen. When the Senate engrossing clerk
came to eopv the amendment he supposed fruit to
be a separate word instead of a qualification of
"plants.' stn! punctuated the sentence so that it
resd : "Fruit, plants, tropical and semi-tropical, foi
the purpose of propagation and nilli.ation."
