HORACE GREELEY INDICTED BY THE GRAND JURY OF THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA. ] The Grand Jury of Washington county, District of Co. Inaable, to-day found a hill of indictment against Horace Greeley, of tho Now York Tribune, for malicious libel of public officers. The particular charge against Mr. Greeley is libelling ths United States Marshal, Colonel Ward H. Lamon. There were two presentments found against Mr. Greeley, but want of time on the part of the District Attorney prevented the preparation of more than one indictment. These presentments are only the beginning of a series of similar charges that are to be found against the same offender. The Marshal was averse to this procedure, but the Jury, having the facts before them, regarded the offence as bo flagrant as to require their attention, and the friends of the Marshal insist that the case shall be vigorously proeeeuted. H. 0. is beginning to reap tho reward of his labors. He finds thatf impudent and unwarranted ass salts upon honest officials for partisan purposes may not always escape punishment. He will probably ere long pay a compulsory visit to the District, ?

The Occur de Lion passed us yesterday afternoon die abled.aud in tow of another steamer. She had her moke stark and a portion or a paddle box carried away by collision with another vessel. Acting Master Hamilton, In command, went up tho , Yocomlco tome day last wock, and. brought off a Union , man named Scott, with hie family and furniture.

It is said that Fort Lowry.on the P.apj ahar.nock , h;.s been abandoned by tbe rebels. ( From the mouth of tbe river to tbe town of Kappa- j bannock there arc no rebel troops, save a few juvenile ( cavalry, composed of boys of from sixteen to twenty ( years, who amuse themselves by negro bunting. These , striplings catch every borse they can lay their bands on for cavalry service. Visits to over a hundred families disclosed a strong < Union scnlimeut in Northumberland and Westmoreland , counties, Virginia and this would be openly manifested ( oould the people there he assured of Uniou protection. < It was also ascertained that much dissatisfaction exists , among the rebels, and that many of them would gladly t make their escape. .

I On Tuesday last the Stepping Stone* proceed*,! to Mat- i tawoman creek, to take torn* troops on board. Companies ] E and H, of the Second New Hampshire regiment, came ] on board. The detachment was under command of i Captain L. Drown. Liautenant Piatt accompanied the | troops. The atearaer stood over for Evansport, and cast | anchor close to the ruined pier, when the troop* landed , in a large launch, taking with them a number of contra- \ bands. They than marched inland to soma distance, the , principal ehieet being to procure timber, * ith which tbat part of Virgiaia abounds, tor building purposes. During their exploration tbey discovered a ten inch gun, In 1 a valley between the high bill on which the tnland 1 battery Is eltuatad and anothar hill overlooking Quantt, o 1 creek, en which another battery had been erected. The I gun was partially burriod, aa if tha rebels, unable to carry it off, had endeavored to concaal it, but wera unable to do so effectually through panic. Tha gun had to be left where It was found for the present. A large quantity of lumber, found at the aawmill, was secured and brought off, aa were fortyflve heavy rifle shells. Among ether things brought on board were the carriage and part of the body of a light wagon, seraral steel pikes, with long wooden handles, and a number or sbovela and pickaxes. The port of the wagon and the shells remain on board. At Ova o'clock tha troopebagan to re embark, and by dark tbey were all landed at Rum Point, Nothing waa seen of the rebels. On Wednesday the sums troops were taken on board, and proceeded to Evaneport, where the troops were landed. Bbortty after twelve o'clock, while a number of men were at dinner in a house to tlio right of the hill battery, a party was tent for some shovels and pickaxaa, to dig out the heavy gun fouad tha day before.

The report of the Commission on War Claims, at St, Loots, is one of the blackest cbaptara in tba revslaHons of frauds connected with tlio war. Tba names of ibe Commissioners, Messrs. David Davis, of Illinois; Joseph Holt, of Kentucky, and Hugh Campbell, aro B sufficient guarantee that the commission was faithfully executed. Their report fills forty printed pages, and the testimony of twelve hundred witnesses examined by thein will occupy from six to seven thousand manuscript pages. The charges against General Froiuont ara enormous. He contracted, according to this report, for eight mortar boats at (0tl,0d0, which were appraised at thirty-eight thougnnd dollars by intelligent boat aud engine builder*. .Among the claims wan one (tor five hundred ton* of lee, ordered by General Fremont, purchased and ?b!pped In October, when the weather was becoming cool. It was root to-Jrffl'rson City, and moat of It wasted because there wse no room to Rtore it in Jefferson City, where it was sent. The Commission allowed only one-half of the claim for rant of a three 6tory bouse for General Fremont's headquarters, hired at sis thousand dollars per annum; and tboy complain that tho purchase of railroad cars, and tho large dealings in coal growing out of the steam and gunboat service aro largely minted with fraud. C. I.. Beard, a Califoruion, and J. C. Woods, figure largely as speculators in the report, they having boon peculiarly favored by the General. Board received $101,000 in advance for some contracts for forts. Of the special contracts for arms and munitions, specially made by General Fremont, $641,000 reniaiu unpaid, and the commission deducted from this $40,000 for excess of price. Mr. Eeard seems to have attacked the Treasury in front, flank and rear. Be brought bills for forage amounting to $116,000. The rapacious purse of Beard was filled, notwithstanding the soldiers and laborers were unpaid. Beard has 'eft St. Louis. The various frauds In General Fremont's department brought to light by the Commissioners are astounding, but bis declaration* were more so. He said to Lieutenant Colonel Andrew*, Paymaster In the regular army, according to the testimony of that officer, that "the people of the United States were in the field; that bo was at their head, and that ho meant to carry aut lueh measures as tbey eipeetrd him to carry out, with?ut regard to the red tape of the Washington people." Colo?el Andrews told him that red tape meant By stem of government, which, In its details, might be carried too fhr by subordinates, but tb* general eye. L-m of our government was a wise and good one, and he who undertook to set aside its principles would become nntaturlcd In difficulties. General Fremont rnnlled l>v re peatirg his former remark, and saying that, "Wf have inly extra constitutional government?no civil rights, so to speak?ami all ordinary peaceful rulos were to be set Me." Other witnesses, of unimpeachable integrity, testified that General Fremont had made similar remarks in tbelr hearing. In commenting upon this-, the Commissioners lay that, "military chieftains who cut red tapo always lo It with their swords, and history proves that tho throat of the country sufTerr quite ar much at tho tapo does in the operation.'' cai'ti're of a rebel ?rY. A rebel spy was captured in the vicinity of Fairfax nation day before yestorday, who, it is behoved, has been prowling within our lines sinco tho evacuation of Manassas.

HIE LOYAL VIRGTNIAN8 OPPOSED TO THE RETl'RN OP THEIR RKBKL NEIGHBORS. A number of tho "sacrrd soil'' rebels are returning to heir homes, apparently thcurouglily diguxiod with their participation in the rebellion.

It Is not intended to ntorferewith the common rebel toldler who may return, but the people are unwilling to have in their midst luch men as lave prominently contributed to bring upon Ibcm tho troubles and grisvances consequent upon this ear.
