A FLEETING Intr.—The Boston Tran
script say a, that a b out three weeks since,
two Meni.b the'illlMO' of Rufus M. Rose
and Francis Godon, discovered, behind a
bridge abutment in Wiekford, which they
were repairing, seven . ' pieces 'of copper
pipe, filled with Mexican quarter-dollars,
amounting in value, to about three hundred
dollars. The diecorerers resolved to keep
the matter secret, and Godon,' buying the
share of Rosa, carried the whole to the
Oltekstone Canal Rank. in Providence,
and exchanged it for gold: Subsequently,
the Teller discovered that the . quarters
were remarkably well executed counter
feits, and 'seeking ad( Godon, informed
him of the fact,'and effected a re-exchange
and .the poor, man, who,-a few days padt,
I had been , building castles in the air, found

suddenly as they had been awakened.--
The Transcript says that entrant' quar

matron in question is a Mrs. D—=—, now
eighty-seven years old. She had 'twenty
three living children, and prayed to the,
good Lord to give her one more, to make

orphan children. She has educated thir

orphans—and for many years sent nine

dinners with them. She says that none
of those she as reared and educated gave

girls have all married well, and are rich.
The boys have all done.well—one of her
orphan proteges has been in Congress, sev
