Land Lotteries.- We understand from our Lottery correspondent under date of 29th ult. that the legislature have suspended the drawing of the Land Lottery for the present, in order to investigate charges of fraud made against Mr. S. Bogan, one of the Commissioners appointed in 1830. Mr. Bogan is from Gwinnett County, and is accused by his fellow citizens of having fraudulently drawn with bought chances, several of the most valuable lots in the territory, two of which adjoin each other, and two others with valuable sites for ferries on one of the rivers. It was expected that the Committee of investigation would be occupied about a week in the examination.
The Gold Lottery will, we presume, progress as usual, as we have the drawing of the 29th ult.
