A London dispatch says: "A thorough revision of the system of book-keep ng in vogue in tbe savings bank depart ment of tbe government postofBce has been ordered, as the result of the dis covery of one cf tbe most gigantic frauds ever perpetrated on this tioan oial institution. The scheme adopted by the conspirators was to open ac counts with the deposit of a few shil lings in nearly one hundred branch savings banks, and change the entries so that where shillings were deposited they appeared as pounds.
