New Counterfeits.
Among the latest counterfeits, and decidedly the
best, are 105 on the State Bank of Ohio. The
bill is letter B, No. 978, dated August 11, 1849,
mid payable at the Guernsey Brunch in Washing.
ton. The filling up is varied in thin:rent bills of
the same plate. The engravingis slightly coarser
on the counterfeit than on the genuine. The
whole appearance of the bill is well calculated to
deceive good judges of money. There is however,
one defect in the counterfeit by which it may be
detected. In the genuine hill the point of the
spear in the hand of the figure on the right, runs
to a very fine point, and intersects the shading of
the tail of the letter Tin the word Ten. in the
counterfeit the point of the spear is blind, mid
strikes very near the centre of the space between
the tails orr and E in the word Ten, and it is
folly one-eightli of an icicle shorter than:ln the
genuine bill.

Having completed arrangements whereby per

rapidly improving portion of the West, can do so
at the minimum price of $1,25 per acre, without
