DAILY EVENING STAR.
Groat Haul of Baseals?940,000 Counterfeit
Money Discovered.
We compile the following account of
the breaking up a den of scoundrels near
Cincinnati from the Gazette:
"Information having been given the po
lice of Cincinnati of the existence of a
counterfeiter's den, a few miles down the
ritep, eighteen officers, on Tuesday, went
to tnake arrests. The approach of the
police being known, six or the occupants
of the suspected house made their escape,
but the police, as previously planned, in
vested the place, and arrested five of the
fugitives, named Samuel D. Towner and
Milton Parker, of Cincinnati: Lewis Dol
man, of Indiana, an escaped convict; Jo
seph Bean, of Indiana: Wm. McGcary, of
Cleaveland, and Quincev Hurschey, a
large contractor on the Ohio and Missis
sippi Railroad. Parker is a notorious
counterfeiter, and was pardoned out of
our penitentiary by Gov. Wood, six weeks
since; he very nearly made good his es
cape under the fire of the officers, but for
tunately stumbled and was captured; a
large amount of bills on the Ohio State
Stock, Miami Valley and Bank of Day
ton, unsigned, was taken from him.
After the arrests had been made, the
premises were carefidly searched. In the
dwelling was found a box containing live
gold watches, and from twenty to thirty
gold rings. In the chicken-coop, some
thine; like forty thousand dollars in coun
terfeit notes of the Ohio State Stock,
Miami Valley, Bank of Dayton and the
Fairfield County Bank were discovered,
nearly all signed, cut and done up in
thousand dollar packages, ready for dis
tribution. The money was concealed in
a bag, half tilled with charcoal.
A mail-bag padlock of tfce post-office
department was also discovered in the
dwelling. The stables attached to the
premises was found to have been convert
ed into a workshop for these counterfeit
ers, and dies, tools, a galvanic battery,
stamps, moulds, metal, end pieces, vig
nettes, figures, letters, engraving tools,
and all the other apparatus needed for the
business of counterfeiting, were also dis
covered and taken possession of by the
police. A composition for the manufac
ture of base money, together with a
quantity of crucibles, was also discovered
and seized by the officers. The prisoners
are in prison in Cincinnati.
The Black Snake of the House
In almost every house in Syria there is
a peculiar black serpent, large but very
harmless, which takes up its abode in the
cellar of the house, and will never after
wards quit its nook or corner till killed,
or till the house falls, or the snake dies.
No Syrian would ever intentionally kill
one of these snakes, for, besides keeping
mice and rats away, they are held in
such deep veneration that endless are the
absord superstititions and tales told
about them, all of which I myself ouce
firmly believed in. Amongst the other
things, it is said, that if you destroy one
of these, the mate is sure to seek for and
Obtain vengeance. They pretend, fur
ther, that these snakes are doatingly
fond of milk, and that the smell of it will
immediately attract them. It is com
monly believed that a young mother,
may be sure, if she is on the watch, that
the black snake will come in the night
and feed off her breasts, till it has drained
them so dry that there is nothing left for
the infant: and, again, with regard to
the child, should the snake be disappoint
ed in getting its supply of milk from the
fountain-head, that it will resort to the
artifice of inserting its tail into the in
fant's mouth, and so tickling its throat as
to cause it to be sick, and thus supply
itself with food. But the most ludicrous
story is told about the conscientiousness
of one of these snakes, a story which is
firmly believed by most Orientals. It
runs thus:
44 In Syria, it is the custom of every
family to lay up a year's provisions of all
the necessaries of life, in store-rooms at
tached to the house; these provisions
consist of melted butter in jars for cook
ing wheat, rice, burhal, &c. Now, as
the story goes, one of these black snakes
once deposited her eggs in one of these
store-rooms, a hole in the corner of which
led to the serpent's nest. The young
ones had been hatched, and all were as
sembled together gamboling about, when
some of the children happening to sur
prise the young snakes in their frolics,
seeing that they were very small, whipped
them up in their handkerchief, and ran
off with them to the other end of the
house. Now mark what might have
been the serious results of this frolic.
Mother snake coming home could not
find her young ones, and made a pretty to
do about it At last she discovered that
the children had stolen them, and in her
rage and vexation, determined to be re
venged on the whole family. According
ly, with the assistance of her tail, she
removed the cover of the butter jar, and
inserting her fangs into the butter, suc
ceeded in poisoning the whole mass. By
and-by, home came the lady of the house
from the bath, and no sooner did she sec
what the children had been about, than
with many screams and exclamations,
she insisted on the young snakes being
carried back again. No sooner said than
* done; and now mother suake began
deeply to regret what she liad done.
How to remedy the evil was the question
?speak she could not, nor had she any
other method of warning the family not
to use the butter. Well, what do you
think she did ? She called the male
snake to her assistance, and these two,
ooiling themselves around the thiu jar,
broke it into a hundred pieces, the melted
butter ran out on the ground, and was
lost and the family were saved from being
poisoned."

was taken last November with a severe cough and a
general weakness that completely prostrated me.

not attend to my business. 1 liecumc so weak Uiat
I was not able to sit up for more than a half hour at
a time, when I would be compelled to lie down to
gain strength. I tried a dozen different articles, re
cominended to me as cures, but received no relief
from any of them. My cough and weakness increas
ed, and. in fact, I was so far gone that I seriously
thought I should die, when I heard of vour valuable
medicine, the Cedar Tar. I tried if. and I had taken
it but a few days before I found great relief. My ap
petite became so good that 1 could eat anything that
was placed before me. I would recommend it to

The above Company, having just completed a new
aud most extensive Foundry and Manufactory, beg
leave to call the attention of Architects, Builders,
and the public generally to their assortment of Mar
blcized Iron Mantels, and other Articles, which they
are now producing oil an enlarged scale; the beauty
and desigus of which, and their exquisite finish, have
never been equalled and cannot be excelled.
The exact imitations of the finest varieties of Mar
hie, such as Egyptian, Sienna. Brocatelle, Verd An
tique, Agate, Prince Albert, Jaspar, Pyreuesc, Light
Spar. White Statuary. Stc.. have elicited the un
qualified commendation ot" connoisseurs in Marbles,
and fully established their jiopulanty with the pub
lic.
Some of the advantages in this discovery consist
in its capability of withstanding a high degree of
heat, of resisting oils and acids, which stain and de
face Marble, and their cheapness, (being about one- j
third the cost,) in comparison ?ith all other kinds ot
Mantels; also, of being packed and sent Willi safety
to any part of the country.
The Marbling department is under the direction of
Mr. E. Shoemaker, who first introduced this inval
uable discovery to the public, and demonstrated its
practical utility and application to in<'t:ils aud other
substances. Circulars, with plates, exhibiting the
varieties of pattern, will be furnished when desired.

more to Wheeling, and connecting there |
with the targe, new, and .splendid istcanurs j
of the Union Line on the Ohio, and the 1
stage* to Zaneirifte, \r.
1MIIS EXPEDITIOUS LINE being now thorough- j
. ly completed, by Uie late finishing of the Great
Board Tree Tunnel, and the road being in excellent
order, the earnest attention of travellers is confident- i
ly directed to its Mi|>erior advantages and low fare-.
The scenery upon this road is of the most stupend
ous and attractive character.
The Express Mail Tram leaves Baltimore daily at
7 p. m., and runs directly through to Wheeling. (380
miles) in 18 or 19 lumrs, including all stoppages, ar
riving there at 2 or 3 p. in., next day ; or. passengers ;
leaving Baltimore at 8 a. in. may lay over for lodg
jug in Cumtieriand, (179 miles,) and proceed thence
to Wheeling in the morning.
To connect with these train*, the cars leave
Washington at fi a. in., and 5 p. in., daily, meeting
the cars from Baltimore at the Washington Junc
tion, (better known as the Relay House,) 9 miles
from Baltimore.
At Wheeling, the seven unrivalled steamers of the
I'nion Line, which have just been completed for
this route, form a daily connection with the cars,
and convey passengers down the Ohio to I 'meinnati
and Louisville, where the stages for Nashville, fce..
or the St. Louis and New Orleans packets may lie >
takeu by those going further oil.
Passengers for Columbus (or who prefer the land
route to Cincinnati) and other parts of Ohio, and the J
West may also proceed direct from Wheeling ill the
Ohio Stage Company's excellent coaches over the
best part of the National Road to Zancsville, Ate., 1
and thence by railroad.
Passengers for WeUsville and Cleveland by steam
boat and railroad will also find this a most agreeable I
route, there being a regular and speedy connexion
at Wheeling to and from those places.
