A FRAUD OF GREAT MAGNITUDE.--The trustees of the Bank of Alabama have issued a circular, which acquaints us that some months since, a person by the name of Bryan Hines, of Greene county, Ala., executed to Mr. Hawn, of Tuscaloosa, a deed of trust, securing to said bank, for the payment of over $60,000, a number of slaves, some sixty and upward, and nineteen mules and eight head of horses; that since the date of said deed of trust, Hines has fled, carrying with him all the property pledged, and that the present residence or the delinquent is to the trustees unknown. In view of this breach of trust, the officers offer, for the recovery of the property, one-fourth the amount it may bring at public sale; and they are further authorized by the Governor of Alabama to offer, for the arrest and conviction of said Hines, the sum of $250, an indictment having been found against him by the Grand Jury of Greene county, for swindling.
