The bill besides is a goad one and well w>rth seeing. *- Metropolitan Hall.?No one who visits this resort ever fails to b? entertained, and as to-night an especially good bill will be per formed it may be expected there will be a full house The Forged Proclamation.?We have as certained npon undoubted authority that Mr. King, Postmaster of the House and pro P'i tor of the Rochester (N. Y.) Democrat., Mr "Charts Lanman nor Mr. Yillard, of the Western Press office here, no* any one of his Associates was arrested, as rumored yesterday on account of alleged complicity in the pub lication of tbe forged proclamation. Th? re port in currency yesterday to the effect that the bogus dispatch was supposed to have been transmuted by the Western Associated Press Agents here, but it was stopped in New York and did iot get either to Rochester or Cincin nati, ts also, we are assured, without founda tion in tact, as well as entirely Inconsistent With the ch?racter of the gentlemen connected with the Western Press office in this city. Ihe dispatch sent from that office on Tuesday night is as follows, (we clip from the Boston Advertiser :) ?? It is reported that the President on Mon day, in order to keep our armies up to the maximum strength, and finish the war this summer, ordered a draft for three hundred thousand men." As lor tbe bogus Proclamation, we under stand that the Government is satisfied that tt never went over the wires, but wis forged in New York. There is reason to believe that the forger stole the fact that there was to be another draft from the above despatch.

The resolutions were unanimously adopted amid much enthusiasm, and the meeting then proceeded to selec t a candidate for Alderman, and Mr. Crosby S.

These Bonds aryisaued under the Act of Congrese of March 6th. ISM. which provides that ail B?ndsis* sued under this Act SHALL BE REDEEMS) IN COIN, at the pleasure of the Government, at any period net less than ten nor more thorn forty ytars from their date, and until their redemption KITE PER CENT. INTEREST WILL BE PAID IN COIN, on Bonds of not over ene hundred dollars annually and on all other Bonds serai annually. The in terest is payable on the first days of March and September in each year. As these Bonds, by Act of Congress, are EXEMPT FROM MUNICIPAL OK STATE * TAXATION, their value is increased from one to three per cent, per annum, according to the rate of tax levies in various parts of the country. At the present rate of premium on gold they pay OVER EIGHT PER CENT. INTEREST in currency, and are of equal convenience as a per manent or temporary investment. It is believed that no securities offer bo great inducements to lenders as the various descrip tions of U. S. Bonds. In all other forms of in debtedness, the faith or ability of private parties or stock companies or separate communities only is pledged for payment, while for the debt's of the United States the whole property of the country is holden to secure the payment of both principal and interest in coiu. These Bonds may be subscribed fo-r in sums from fyi up to any magnitude, on the same terms, and are thus made equally available to the smallest' lender and tne largest capitalist. They can be converted into money at any moment, and the holder will have the benefit of the interest. The Funded Debt of the United States on which iitterest is payable in (told, on the 3d day of March, 1864, was 1768,965,000. The interest on this debt for the coming fiscal year will be $45,937 126, while the customs revenue in gold for the current fiscal year, ending June 30th, 1864, has been so far at the rate of over $100,000,000 per annum. It will be seen that even the present gold reve nues of the Government are largely in excess of the wants of the Treasury for the payment of gold interest, while the recent increase of the tariff will doubtless raise the annual receipts from cus toms on the same amount of importations, to ll'-O.OOO.OOO per annum. The authorized amount of this loan is ?200,non,000 Instructions to the National Banks acting as loan agents were not issued until March 26, but the Amount of Bonds reported sold at the U. S. Treasury up to May 14th was 54^,964,900. Subscriptions will be receivc i by the Treasurer qf the United States at Washington, and the Assist ant Treasurers at New York, Boston and Philadel phia, and by the FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF WASHINGTON FIRST NATIONAL BANK OF BALTIMORE, and by all National Banks which are depositaries of public money, and all respectable banks and bankers throughout the country (acting as ageuts of the National Depositary Banks.) will furnish further information on application, and afford every facility to subscribers. my 13-1 w ' BALLS, PARTIES, to Fourth grand afternoon and eve ning pic NIC ISY THE McCLELLAN friendship association..
