[Prom the londonPost, Jen. 12 ] It * manifest, from the further official despatches received within the last eight end-forty hours, that although tho mutiny inay l>e said to be nearly extinguished, yet for a considerable t'me to come Iintia must continue in a state unsettled and dangerous. Much is the incredulity of the native, that he will not believe in the successes of our troops, or see, despite the evidence of his senses, that we can hold our position without his aid. Whero a native com cornier has been defeated In one locality to-<lay. he argues that a compensating victory has been obtaineu by eon e otb*r body of mutineers in another quarter as a setoff. and thus the progress of delusion is ever increasing, notwitUNlanding native defeat and disaster. Tuose facts compel any dispassionate and well informed observer to think that the sword must still, for a ooualderabie time to come, be the main support of our Indian government amiiuie. It will therefore be necessary still to go on IN-ovtdujg a military establishment adequate to defend every part of our Indian territory, and to chastise mutineers, plunderers and rebels, let them turn up where they may. THE VERY LATEST. The London journals of the 13th ingt. republish from the Qslcuua SaMltr E&ra/miinary the report by Briga- i dier Inglis, lately commanding the garrison of l.ucknow, < at the defence of the Residency in that city from the first i threatened attack upon it on the 29th of Juno to tho arrival of the force under Centrals Outran* and Havelock on the 26th of HepUiuilaT. long as this document to It will bo read with an interest greater than that attached to any narrative printed since the revolt broke out Compression j would do injustice to thia report; but in the general orders of the government General ViscountCanning presents a summary of the heroic defence of Lucknow, of which the following is an extract:? , That defence has not only called forth all tho energy and dar ns which belong to Englishmen in the hour of : active conflict, but It baa exhibited continuously, and in I the highest degree, that nohlo and sustained courage j which agamet enormous odds and fearful disadvantages, against hope deferred and through unceasing toll and 1 ear of holy and mind, still holds ou day after day and " triumphs The Lucknow garrison oould hear the heavy , guns of the assailant* posted almost in security within ttity yards of the entrenchments. So near indeed that ' ill? roliciutwma, and threats, and taunt? which the rebcla i aditrr<?rd to the native defender! of th i garrison wero , ea-ily heard by tboee true hearted men.

Th? tWth Regiment was left wiibout support They charged t battery to the left centro at the enemy's line and gamed it, the enemy Yielding at every step bat they were left alone, and the enemy cleaing on them with their left wing, they suffered very severely, and w?r* compelled to abandon the guns they bad gained.

In the Collector of Annumewt'i OAoe knawi b at an " Arrangement," Ac. The nntveraal extent to which the corruption of our city w government but attained baa been deemed by the Board b< of Aldermen a sufficient necessity for appointing a stand- ?* iug Committee on Frauds, in order to systematize iuqui- ni ries into lbs complaints of tbo outraged citizens. Alder men Tbom.ia W. Adams, Thomas Stephens and James ** Owens have been appointed on thia eommiuee, and held J' their first meeting yesterday afternoon, in tbo City Libra- A ry. There was a large attendanceof interested spectators, J< composed of city officials and citizens generally. ^ Alderman Adams opened the session about quarter post one, by directing the resiling of the resolution referring * Donover's communication ot Jan. 11 to this committee, aod * stating that Comptroller Fiagg and Corporation Counsel Hub teed had been notified, and were expected to attend. rl FRAUDS IN PAVENO IN THE BOWERY. Mr. Burtis Skidmore then Informed the committee that tie had a few words to ssy. *' The Chairman?On whose behalf? Mr. Skidmore?On my own behalf, sir, as a citizen. J ippoar to protest against fraud practiced upon me,as .iciti to. sen, by the city. I wili tell you a short story, and will swear a it afterwards ir you wish, 1 suppose you aro aware? f you arc not you ought to be?that tnere have boon frauds as perpetrated in the way of paving walks and fencing lots. b<i ["here have been large amounts of money paid in ibo way Wl )f assessments for paving walks where there was no no :essity for it. There Is no doubt about It, and the fact m, ^ it has been done to give jobs to political favorites. Th? e, case of which 1 have to complain is in the Bowery, bo- between Bleecker and Houston streets. There was a good brick walk there. Without my knowledge that walk was taken up and flagging put down, under the dir<-ction of the O Common Council. The first 1 knew was that at-inant Cl came to me and told me that the ttnggiug was there. I went and looked at It, and found that it was very impre- c, perlv done and upon examlnatirn or th I contract, wrnch 1 found at tho street Commissioner's offl-.e, I found vhst it p, was not done according to conlrait. I then went before a committee for the purpose of proving the facts. I got the 0 Inspector before the committee, and I look the contract in ^ my hand and asked from him whether the work was done according to contract, ills only reply was that he did not know. The Chairman?Do you know his name ? o Mr. Skidmore?X'o, sir; but I r?n get It. If this thing is going to be a real operation. I will give you facts enough. The Chairman?That is what we want. sir. J Mr. Skidmore?Well, sir, thoro have Decn a great many ()l of these committees that have never come to anything ft The Ciuikm^v?Well, we think tho taa payers have ouly u themselves to blame Mr Skidmore?Havo they f They have got tired of F coming before these committees, and merely losing time. Well, T then went to Mayor Wood. The Chairman?tJive the number of this property. te Mr Skidmore?It was the cottage, at Nos TUb, 300 and ft .101 Bowery, measuring 76 feet front. Mayor Wood told n me that if I would get tlve respectable mechanics V> say it woa not done according to contract, he would veto ;t d 1 thought it very strange that be shouli require five men, n but I got tbem to swear to It, and filed the httl lavlt with t; him Instead of vetoing it, however, Ifctf0' Wood let it v go by default, and the Common Conned rue hod it through. o This was last January that 1 gave the affidavit to Mayor C Wood. a Chairman?Who was the contractor'' a Mr. Pkidmore?I will try and get you all the facts. tl The Chaunian?We want the contractor*, inspectors s and surveyors' nam?s. We want facte and figures. t! Mr. SkKfmort?I will step nto the office and try to get a then Cur you (Fx*.) C wttamt vfi TO nwrM IN AMOA itbeit. P Mr. J. r.

We will hear other |<arttes afterwards, and take up their tl taiea. It would be belter for clti/ens having complaints to make to hand in written charges to the Board, ao that they would be referred to us and wo eould take testimony on thi m h Mr Williamson?The fart is, sir, the taxpayers have got tired of do'ng this.
