Our readers can form soe0l idea of
the proportion of counterfeits in oirou
latioln from the following.
Somo days ago having accumulated
a nuimber of mutilated fractional cut'
rency notes, principally of' very small
denominations to the nominal value of
one dollar und sixty cents, and having
made many fruitless efforts to shift
them ofl upon tho good nature of some
of our merehants-wo determined to
call upon the government to redeem its
wild cats. We did so, with the fol
lowing resumt-mr outnos u a a .
to us---5 cents discount, and 75 cents
counterfeit. Such is the proportion
we presume of countorfe-s to the ug
gregato circulation of the country, in
the rural sections where there tiro no
experts or detoet ives. So long as they
pass in honost bonafido exchange
they answer every purposo,but it would
be well for our people to exercise a
little more caution in accepting torn
and defacod notes, for should they ever
whih to have them redeemed, they
will ilnd out their worthlessness.
Wosee by a circulat' the Tfreasum'er
sends us, that "no loss sum than thrco
dollaro will be redeemed."

Our section was rudely visited on
Sunday and Monday by a real foro
tasto of Winter. The air was sharp and
evidently came somewhere from the
realms of ice. Thick coats woro donn
ned. Fires sparkled for the first timo
on hearths that have felt no warmth
since last winter. Pedestrians walked
with quickened pace. Just such
weather as thrills tho physical man
with a senso of health and vigor; but
ominous of early frost to the cotton
Owing to the wind we presume,
there was no frost visible.
The latest enterprise in-a local line
is Mr. McNinch's Marblo Yard-pre
parod to do up the virtues of departed
humanity in any shapo, form or fash
ion. Mr. MeNinch is a citizen of
Chester, an energetic young man, and
a good soldier of the Sixth Regiment
during the war. Between us, if ho is
as successful and devoted to his new
task of reudoring peaceful homago to
the dead as lie was in increasing tto
mortality of the Nortlern army on di
vers occasions, lie will stand well in
his lino. We commend both him and
his enterprise to our citizens.
