AOR. 21. Considerable excitement has'been oc- casioned in Yonkers by the allfgeii dis- covery Unit Mr. .Stokes, cashier of the banking house of F. Morris Co., had decamped, and that he was 11 de- faulter to tho amount of forty or fifty Ihousand dollars, and perhaps a much larger sum. On Saturday morning last, Mr. Stokes informed tho Messrs. Morris thai he desired to go to New York to iiu-et some members of his family, whom he cxpvcted were 'coming down the Hudson river on board of some steamer. The request excited no suspi- cion whatever, as ho had been away under similar circumstances on previ- ous occasions. But on Monday herjailed to make an appearance; Tuesday also passed without Mr. tjlokes showing himself, when tho Morris brothers be- gan to fear something wrong, "Ou Wednesday, one of the firm came to New York, and proceeded to look after certain securities which wero deposited hero as n reserve iu case of any emerg- ency that might arise. It was, It is said, soon ascertained that Mr. Stokes, who was fully invested with authority, to obtain and convert them into funds, if necessary, had already converted the securities into available funds, aiul, as alleged, appropriated them to his own use. Ou the return Mr. Morris to Yonkers, and after a consultation with his brother on the subject, it was de- cided to close the bank nud proceed to Investigate tho true state of their lu'Uirs, which they have uot yet completed, consequently tho exact aoiouut of Mr. StokiV defalcation has not been ascer- tained. The Messrs. Morris are said to have received a letter from their cash- ier, dated at'aomo place In Canada, sot- ting forth that ho haa lost tho amount in eomi- unsuccessful stock-jobbing spec- uluticjuc. Mr. Stokts is about fifty years old, IriH a wife, aud 11 number of interesting He-has held responsible positions of various kinds sinco he was llilnecn years old.
