Clever Counterfeit Discovered of
serial R atlttfgS.
A new and dangerous counterfeit
of the $i silver certificate has been
dtacOVOred In thll city, and in ap?
pearance resembles the genuine note
so closely that it is calculated to de?
ceive an expert. Three of the coun?
terfeit! Were obtained yesterday by

overwd at the Bubtrenaury and on*1
at the DroVeri and Mechanics' Na?

WOre found among bundles of other
nob i ami it Is not known by whom
they were deposited.
All three of the notes in Captain
Wrlght'l possession have the same
serial numbsr?R ?9111992. An ex?
pert only could detect any difference
between the paper on Which ths
notes are printed and the genuine
article. The printing would also bo
thought perfect by many, although
Captain Wright detected flaws In the
portraits of Lincoln and Grant Which
adorn the note. He also found by
measurement that the counterfeit is
slightly shorter and narrower than
It is said that the countei. it was

Captain Wright says it is one of the
