to believe that the separate secessionists will

on the tith day of January. It is thought that

The VVa«htn B ion Defalcation, Jrc
The Washington Star of M;nd:iy evening
farnlshe- ihe following additional particulars
about the defalcation la Washing-ton :
A .lay oi twoeiaee.Cl duard Bailey, tfc* law
cierkoi the Inferior Dspartawat—a native of
soath Caroline, appointed fro a Ala
bama, a young married man 01 abmt thirty
yeaiaofage, admitted to be a person Of re
markably floe abilities and attainments—
Placedl la th.- hands ot a friend a letter to be
BMtfed to Secretary Thompeon. Tins was
during Urn latter* raceni abeeace Bis man
nerwa »neh aa that the friad pressed bin
with inquiries concern! *• i-s contents, and
« »i nlng them, hastened to deliver i' to Mr. T.
on the instant of his return to this city on
batarday evening last. It prove iti be a vol
untary confe* i m from Bailey that at the in
stance of another he had acs'rac ed (and
ijuii.i In thai person) front the Iron safe tin
der his charge,a large amount- Bw3o,uuu—©i
the Mute bonds held by Mr. T. a.- Secretary of
the Interor to | >r sundry Indian Tire
— the proceeds of their bonds wd b.' the Gov
ernment, and so I a Tasted and held for their
benefit in pursuant c of treaty stipulation.
1' scem< that the Secretary hid endeavored
to induce the regular MMiier of hia depart
ment, Mr. Peter Lammond, to become their
custodian, but not being cb tged so to do by
law <>t regulation, be declined the responsi
bility of their charge. Tin- Secretary then
entrusted theia to the seeping of Bauey, the
department's law clerk, who was umw bonds
of ten thousand dollars lor the faithful per
formanca of other trasta—-not that one. The
receipt of tin- letter hy the S-vre aty ot course
created great, commotion in tin- department,
nod he, With Bailey and otherclerk.-.were mere
engaged in the consequent investigation al!
Saturday Dighj last until :j a.. M . with naeks,
police officers, ie., pljlug over the city. Ac
cording to Bailey's confession, he loaned the
bonds to the party who had induced him to
commit this abs'raction, but wa.- not to ie
ceive a single dollar of the proceeds of the
speculation, tie badentofl aad preserved in
me safe the coupona for the next cix months'
in prest, so that no pari of that cuuld be lost
to the 'lovernment or In liana.
One theory ot the abstraction is, that Bailey
and iiis confederate desired to make a lexge
Bum by speculation in the stolen binds (the
Mrs lot which were taken as early as live
months ago,) by felling them at the compara
tively high prices at which they sold
time since, and buying them back and replac
ing them in the safe when the sectional trou
bles they knew wete about to arise should de
press 'heir prices, as at present: and that bis
confederate having failed to return any of
tbem >j la:, B bec;wne alarmed and madebi
voiun'aiy confession to th.- Sscretaiy.
Bailey is said to allege that he loaned Kus
se i the bonds under his persuasion o and those
•■f a Washington banker, not lor the purp ise
of speculation In Mocks, but thai by selling
tueru he might meet sundry accepted drafts ol
his linn on the War Department, payable out
of any moneys due them or to become cine to
mem irons the Government, to meet wuich
the Department bad then no money at com
mand. Of course he alleges that be ani i
pated that when the Department ratghi be in
funds, the stocks would have been re-pur
chased and handed back to him. Russell gave
him an amount of such accepted drafts equal
(am uni i : 9 toe Us J5. Illegally loaned i
aim, which said so accepted drafts he placed
lv lie sale as security for the tventual ieturn
oi ilie State bou's.
It is further said that Russell obtained from
the Bank of tie Republic, in New York, on
:..e State bonds—tbat bin!, now baviug them
in its possession—the money with which to
take up the accep ed drafts on the War De
partment. It is doubted whether the accepted
drafts which Bailey held as security ate really
any security whatever. Bnt 'in' tact will be
tattled \ery shortly, we apprehend, on farther
Ail yesterday the Secretary continued his
investigation into the affair, and is said to have
so far found all the statements oi Bailey's let
ter of confi ssion correct to the tetter, if
obeyed 'he Secretary's summons, ami aided
him on Saturday night and again yesterday
a! ernoon in his labors of search.
This morning a warrant for bis arrest and
commitmeut was made out byCipt.Qoddard,
Chief oi IVl.ce, and it was determined to Disc*
him in j;.i v.i hout au examination at* this
uae. uuleas that was demanded by his conn
■•:. Mr. t: ::li-ie.
As soon as Mr. Thompson receive.! the letler
md a- named the piobabie v !:>o~:,b mts (in
New York) of Bailey's alleged roofeueraus—
v\ m. ii. Russell, oi the Urm of Russell, Ma
l»r .t U ~ the gn at overland pony express aud
army-transportation contractors -ne tele
graphed to Marshal Rynders to effect his ai
res".; but np to the hour at which we go h
press we have nut beenab'e to learn that tie is

Washington tin-, morning per raii, getting into
thecat.- at Philadelphia, aud leaving them
nly after rbey had backed out of the W ■. ;.
ington dspot, to retnrn tn on another track;
eluding me jifleerson the wa ph for him, b}
lumpii g oil thus on the outskirts of the city.
Rus ell is s:!>l not to be the only person Im
plicated besides Bailey. A Washington bank
er, and others, win se names we have not oeen
able bo learn, are rumored at the Department
to be well nigh as deeply Involved In me trans,
action, a.-- aiders, abettors, advisers, tc , and as
sharers, in the contemplated prolltsot it.
Bailey had three millions of dollars in such
bond:- m his cu>todv,and might .-is easily ha\.

A Masonic banquet was given at Nj.ting
hani, Lng., on the -th Inst., on the occasion of
the insta'lation o( the Dnke of Newcastle as
Grand Ma-iter of Nottinghamshire. After
mentioning briefly his visit to Canada with
the Prince, he said :
After leaving that country he went to an
other, which, it was true, did not at present
own the sceptre ot Great Britain, and there
fore, throughout the many thousand miles
through which he bail traveled, there wa* no
de -ame loyally, hecaasa there waa net the call
for it inacoiintry which was uot subordinated
to the Crown ol England; but there was an
amount of respect, ot attachment, of venera
iß and love tor the Q,ueen of this counrv,
Which far transcended anything that could
possibly nave beet: expected. [(Jheers jlt was
a tribute on the part ol the American people; it
was a demousira'iou of their veneration lor
female excellence, and it was aUo a proof of
their deep and lasting attachment to the mo

that the feeling towards the ci Great
Britain in the United Siaies ci America could
not be designated by any o'her word he knew

lerring now to the general powerful mflueuce
which ihe excellent liueeii of this country ex
ercised over other nations, and more especially
over those with whom we had a o >mmon ori
gin ; and he was certain they would not be
wan i mg on the present occasion in that feeling
whicu had been so generally exhibited else
where. Having now relerred briefly to ihe
attachment exhibited toward.- her Majesty in
he Colonies and in the United States of Amer
ica, he might notice, the fact that a uu less
sinking demonstration ol affection was re
cently seen in the anxiety and alaim which he
had been told prevailed m this country respect*
mg the safely ol his Royal Highness the Prince
of Wales. [Cheers.] From the maimer m
wuich thatauxiety was di-played, her Majesty
migiit heiuiiv convinced ol the ardent attach
ment of her people. Nor was this le.-s s iok
ingly demonstrated when his X yal Bighness
reached these shores j for he met wiih a re<_ep

Bis Grace, in proposing "The Rest of the

oi the Prince of Wales, at the age ot nineteen,
to render to his country a great and essential
