A RUSSIAN WEDDING.
Marriage of tho Czar's Niece to a Gorman
Prlnro.
at. Pttertbura Vorrennndtnee London Telegraph,
To-day took place tlio marriage of Hie Grand
Duchess Anastasia—the daughter of the Em
peror of Russia's brother, the Grand Duke
Michael Nlcololcvltch, Governor-General of the
Caucasus—to Prince Frederic of Mecklenburg-
Schwerin.
A distinguished company assembled In the
Winter I’olaco at o'clock, among those
present being the members of the Ecclesiastical
Svnod, Die Superior Clergy, the Council of the
Empire, Senators, the Diplomatic Body, the
chief olllccrs of the army mid navy, and repre
sentatives of the mercantile classes. The ladies
appeared In the Kuislan national costume, and
the gentlemen In full dress or uniform.
Thu bride and bridegroom were received la
tliu magnlilccntapartmcntknown os St. George’s
Hull, aiid conducted; to the chapel within thu
Palace, where they were met by the Emperor
mid Empress, whose appearance was sainted ny
lOlgans from the fortress opposite the Imperial
residence.
The Grand Duchess Anastasia wore over her

tle lined with ermine, thu train being supported
by four Chamberlains and tliu Master of thu
Ceremonies attached to the household of the

Novgorod and Bt. Petersburg and thu members
of tliu Bvnod, mid the Inferior clergy carrying
thu cross'and the holy water.
The Emperor led the bride and bridegroom to
their respective positions, and the rings having

George’s Hall.
That Tranco Case.
The remarkable “trance case” at Fort Ed
ward, N. Y., turns out to have been an ordinary
dentil from heart-disease. The story is a very
sad one. On Friday evening a week before last,
the “Mltc Society” of the Baptist Cburcb bad
one of its customary sociables, uml Mias Anna
Carter was uinumr tlic brightest, merriest, and
prettiest girls hi Uio parlors, Sho seemed to be
in perfect health, and her animation and (low of
spirits made her the leading spirit of the even*
hnr. “I feel happy,” she said to one of ber
friends, “ but 1 foot queer,—ns If I could fly
away with myself.” While In the supper-room
she turned pale, and clasped her band to her
heart. At the same instant sberosc from the table
uml with the simple words. ** 1 don’t feel well,”
fell lifeless to the floor. A physician arrived in
a few minutes and pronounced It a fatal case of
lieurt-dlscasc. When the body of the beautiful
girl was tenderly carried to the bouse, which
she had left only a few hours before In such
merry mood, her mother’s grief was heartrend
ing. “Shu is not dead I Sho cannot bo dead I”
was the cry of anguish uttered again and again.
On the next day it w*ns noticed that the body
was quite worm, nml hopes were inspired
that the girl was in a trance that
was the counterfeit of death. Then
began the vigil of love. Friends watched
day after day mid night lifter night for signs of
life. Physicians were summoned and extraor
dinary tests were made. The arm of tho girl
wns bared uml a vein punctured by a sharp nee
dle. A mirror was held under the nostrils mid
something like moisture was discerned on Its
surface. A galvanic battery was brought Into
requisition, uml currents of electricity were set
In motion. But the breath of life had departed
forever. On Wednesday preparations were
made for Die funeral, but when the body was
In the c.nllln a slight flush gathered an tho check
of the girl. Hope was rekindled, The funeral
was again delayed, mid the watchers resumed
their places; uml it was not until there were
manliest signs of decomposition that the mother
would consent to have the remains burled.
Metoorlo Stones Catalogued.
JniUnnaiiolt* Journal.
Mr. Charles U. Blicnard, of New Haven. Conn.,
writes to the Journal for fuller information con*
ocrnlms the alleged meteoric stone of recent
notoriety, and expresses on earnest desire to
procure a piece of it to mill to hh lurco collec
tion. Air. Shepard lias heen informed of the
facts, or rather of the want of the facts, (a the
case. His letter states that lie has been for
lorty years a diligent student of meteorology,
inul that ho has accumulated the largest collec
tion of meteoric stones in the United States, tf
not In tiiu world. Ho forwards a catalogue of
ills collection, showing the number of stones and
(lie date and locality of their fall. The collection
embraces over 500 meteoric stones and meteoric
irons. The total weight of the collection
is about 1,300 pounds. The largest Iron, pro
cured from Colorado, weighs 453 pounds, and
the smallest, from Otsego County, New York,
weighs half an ounce. The largest entire stone,
procured from Muskingum Countv. Ohio,
weighs Ufty-slx pounds, and the smnlUJst one,
from Sivcoen, weighs less than fifty grains.
The specimens have been gathered from oil
parts ot the world. The catalogue begins with
one which fell Nov. 7,1490, in AUuco, and ends
with one which fell Feb. 13,1675, In lowa Coun
tv, lowa. There are none between 1493 ami
1753, but roost of tbu years since the latter dale
ore represented, ami some years Dy several
specimens. Nearly every country in the known
world is represented in the list. The entire col
lection is in one of the buildings In Amherst
College. Mr. Shepard mokes one statement
which will surprise most persons. Ho says:
“ There have ueeu several instances of death oc
casioned by meteoric stonca. Two monks in
different places were thus killed in Italy, and
two sailors on shipboard in Sweden."

ollnn, and finally died In Hownn County, of this

history of n refined and cultivated Frenchman,
who, in fils sober moments, called himself
Peter Stuart Ncy. Jn order to thoroughly
Investigate this matter, uml determine,. If

has mndo a pilgrimage to this region,—the old

having spent a week collecting facts bearing
upon tbo subject, uml Interviewing aged per*
sons who knew him well, some of whom were
his pupils, will host give tho results uf his In*
qulrles for what they are Vorth.
HISTORY
But first let me revert to history nml Incorpo
rate here a synopsis of what has been accepted
ns the true record of tho llfo nml death of tho
great Marshal. Michel Ney was horn Jan. 10,
1750, In Sarro Louis, Lorraine, twenty-firo miles
northeast ot Metz, now Prussian territory. Ife
was of Scotch extraction on his mother’s side,
her maiden name having been Stuart. Ills pa
rents were in humble circumstances of life. At
(ho ago of IS Ney entered tho army, in 1787, is a
hussar, and here began one of the most brilliant
military careers which history records, not ex
cepting even that of the great head of the Preach
army. He fought his way from tho ranks lo tho
grade of General of Division when only 00
years of age (1700), nml at the ago of 35 he was
made a Marshal (1801). His many hair-breadth
escapes, Ids coolness In battle, Ills innate
bravery, are matters of history, nml It Is nob
necessary to dwell upon them here. While a
Brigadier General ho distinguished himself us
Dicrdorf, Altcnklrchcn. mid Muntabour. With
100 cavalry he took 2,000 prisoners mid obtained
Secession of Wurzburg. At the baltlo of
'euweld ho had command of (ho cavalry, nml
in a furious charge passed through the Austrian
lines. Hero he was wounded in the head, mid
becoming entangled tinder his horse (both
having fallen), he was trampled over by retreat
ing horsemen and was mangled in a
manner which makes his escape from
death a mystery. At Worms, Frankenthai,
Frankfort, btuttgard, and Zurich, he maintained
tliu bright reputation ho bad gained, ami, after
rising to the rank of Marshal, his career was
even more brilliant. Ills services at Hohcnlin
den, at Elchlngon, at Auslcrlltz, at derni, at
Magdoberg, ids campaign in Spain In 1802, his
conduct at Frludhtml, at Borodino, mid at Mosk
va, his command of the rear guard during the
famous retreat from Moscow, bis victories nt
Lutzen, Bautzen, uml Dresden, hundreds ol bat
tles on the soil of France, ami Ids charge nt the
head of the famous “ Old Guard,” at Waterloo,
all stamp him the greatest soldier of his age,
uml strengthen the verdict of that grand army
of heroes who named him “ the bravest of the
brave.”
NET’S SUPPOSED EXECUTION.
After tliu abdication of Napoleon, Nev re
mnined In Paris In almost entire seclusion, (hid
ing companionship in books and quiet dissipa
tion. Ho guvo in a turmnl adhesion to tliu
Bourbon dynasty, but after Bouaparto re
turned to France from Elba thu “ bravest of
tbu brave” Joined again his old master and fol
lowed the eagle until tliu star of the empire
forever aet at Waterloo. The allies, after they
assembled in Purls, demanded some victim to
appease their anger. Nev was i a prominent ex
ample, ami he was accordingly arraigned before
tliu Chamber of Peers, of which ho was a mem
ber, on a charge of treason, pronounced guilty
and (here comes the part which tliu people of
this section, nt least, believe to ho false, on the
7th day of December, 1815,) was publicly shot In
thu garden of thu Luxembourg, his lust words
being addressed to the plntoonof soldiers drawn
uu to do the bloody work, os follows: “Fire,
my comrades I”
“Ten balls,” says history, “entered him, and
he fell dead.”
Thu last assertion Is the one which is now de
nied, and thu object of this article Is to show
tliu grounds for Unit denial.
ms I! A HITS.
It Is proper, however, first to revert to history,
and mention some of the characteristics of Mar
shal Nov. It Is to bo regretted that bis biogra
pher is not more elaborate in regard to the old
soldier’s private life, his habits, uml his personal
traits. It Is admitted that Marshal Key was
kind and gentle to a fault. There was a kind of
magnetism about the man which draw him to
the beans of all who knew him. Indeed, Napo
leon is quoted as follows: “Tho loro which the
men bear to Ney wins as many battles for him
os does his ammunition.” 110 was fond of
books, was a mathematician of no mean preten
sions, and an expert penman. While he was not
a dissipated man, bo drank wine to excess, and
sometimes lost bis equilibrium. Such, hi brief,
is a sketch of Urn public career of Mlcbcl Ney,
.Marshal of France under Napoleon.

this placo. and Mrs. Mary 0. Dalton, of Eaglo
Mills, near hero, all of whom were pupils of this
man. I also have letters from various other
persons who know Mr. Ney well, from which I
will subsequently quota. According to my In
formation Peter Stuart Noy landed at Charles
ton, 8. C., on tho 29th of January, 1810. 110
lived In South Carolina awhile, but moved to
Virginia, In various parts of which Statu ho re
sided until 1624, when he came to this (Iredell)
-county, and was engaged by Col. Francis
Young to teach the languages to his sons at tho
Oak Hill Academy. He continued to teach In
this neighborhood ot Intervals until 1838, being
able to secure a school whenever he wished.
During moitof this time bo boarded with Mr. P.
Huston, the father of Mrs. Dalton, tho lady from
whom most of tho Information upon which this
sketch is based was obtained. Ho was a man a
little under six feet in bight, not very fleshy,
but quite muscular, and weighed shout 200
pounds. His head was nearly bald, and showed
a scar on one side, which bo said was a sword
wound received In battle, and Ids face was
slightly marked with.smallpox. Mr. Noy was a
good scholar, and, possessing the rare faculty
of easily Imparling knowledge to (he voung,
ho was regarded as a first rate teacher. He was
a splendid mathematician, and seemed to take
great pride hi working out dlllleult problems.
His handwriting, many specimens of which have
been shown me by Mrs. Dalton, was simply
magnificent, abounding in all kluds of grand
nmlUlfllcult flourishes. Mr. Ney was an expert
fencer, and taught Ids male pupils the art. and
after school duties were over ho would fence
with them for hours, seeming never to tire of
the sport. As a teacher he was very strict, and
wns regarded by his patrons as the bestdlscl
plluarian of his day, but at the same time ho
was very popular with his students, all of
whom loved and revered him. and.,to use (he
language of one of them, “would have (ought
for him and died (or him bad It been neces
sary.”
ilo spent bis leisure hours fn reading and
writing, and would occasionally furnish articles
for the press. He took a large number of lead
ing newspapers, and read them most attentive
hv It was his custom to sit up quite late at
tilcht, only sleeping from four to six hours in
the twenty-tour. When questioned by his rural
friends in regard to this (to them) strange habit
lie said be acquired it In campwhiloiu the army.
Ho was alwaya reticent whea with strangers,
mid rarely, if ever, spoke of ids connection with
the French army even to his intimate friends,
unless (as was often the cose) the hinges of bis
tongue were loosened by an extra glass of wine
or brandy, when his characteristic reserve would
be thrown oif, but even then he manifested no
boastful disposition, merely speaking sometimes
of the grand army and the part bo had borne lu
Its campaigns.
IKOTIIBU VSBsAh or TUB EXECUTION.
On one occasion, whoa ho had bcconiu very
much intoxicated, he narrated to Cot. Thomas
F. Huston, s brother of Airs. Dalton, all about
the famous retreat from Aloscow amid the suuws
uud across tbu rivers upou fee; how the Ice
bridge gave way under his men and drowned
many ot them; how they perished from hunger
and cold; bow the Cossacks hung upon bis rear
and Hooks, cutting oil his men and slaughtering
those who from cold and exhaustion straggled
away and lay down In the snow to die; how be
marched on foot with his bravo men, and finally
brought up the famous rearguard wllh only a
few hundred, nml how Napoleon embraced him
mid called him “ the bravest of Urn bravo.” At
another time, when he was lying on a bed under
the Influence of liquor, be mnhihkd lo himself

It was true, however, that ho was sentenced mid

from whence he sailed to America, landing at
Charleston on the 21)ih of January, I*lo.
COIinonOKATIVB TRSTIMONY,
A few years since Col. Huston, who heard the
above, met in the West, whore lie now lives, a
Frenchman who related to him the following
strange siory: Raid the Friuiclimnn, ” 1 once
belonged to Marshal Key’s command, mid after
tho tail uf Napoleon and capture of Ney I de
serted tho French army, and. making my way to
Bordeaux in December, 1815, shipped us n sea
man on hoard a vessel bound fur Charleston.
When several days out I noticed a tnau on hoard
whose appearance struck me forcibly,
mu) 1 thought I knew him. I tried for several
davs to determine who It could be, mid at last
it Hashed across my mind (hut It was my old
commander, Marshal Ncy. 1 sought the first
opportunity to satisfy myself, and the next lime
the mysterious personage came on deck I ac
costed him uml told him I thought I knew him.
lie replied, ‘Whom do you think I mu I’ I said,
‘My old commander. Marshal Ncy.’ In a very
gruff tone hu responded, * Marshal Ncvwns shot
In Purls, sir,’ uml then, abruptly turning upon
his heel, he went to his cabin mid I saw him no
more, though wo were thirty-five days reaching
Charleston.” This Frenchman’s name was
Philip Petrie, nml lie was living two years ngo.
If hu is still living, which Is probable, he Is an
inmate of the tiddlers’ Dome either al Evans
ton, 111.; Detroit, Mich.; or Milwaukee, Wis.
NBV’fl SUPPOSED WRITINGS.
Mr. Ncy was a stenographer, and It Is believed
that the many letters which he wrote to France
were penned in shorthand. Certain it is a large
quantity of manuscript thus written was found
among ids elTccts when hu died, most of which,
unlortunatelv, bus been lost without having
been translated. He had a largo correspond
ence with persons In France, receiving many let
ters from there, all of which It appears were re
moiled to him from some point in New Jersey,
(hu name of which place my informant has for
gotten. The following verse, written in Ney’a
hand, was found among his clfectb:
Oblivion is the common let
Of common men—they die forjnl:

VISIT OP A MYSTERIOUS STRANGER.
Mra. Dalton lias related to tlio Jlera’d repre
sentative an account of the visit of a mysterious
young man to her father's house, where .Vcy
boarded. It was nt a time when the house was
tilled with company amt every mom was occu
pied. .Near twilight arming man rode unto
the irate und hallooed. When Mr. Huston (Mrs.
Dalton’s fathcO went out the young man asked
the privilege ot storing all night, lie was told
that the house being crowded he could not be
accommodated, but ho insisted, and said he was
willing to sleep on the flour, and that his horse
being tired and completely worn out he could
not possibly proceed further. Mr. Huston then
told him Hint if he wouldsoit himself to circum
stances ho might remain. The stranger thanked
him, und went in. When thu stranger was con
ducted in to supper he took a sent at thu table
opposite Ney, who was occupying his usual scat.
They glanced at each oilier, mid. though not n
word was spoken, It was evident to all present
that It was a glance of recognition. Immediate
ly alter tea these two, taking their hats, left thu
houae'together, ami were not seen by any of the
company any moru that night. Au old negro
man, a servant of Air. Huston, reported that ho
saw thu two, near midnight, sitting behind a
straw-stack In a bold, near thu house, In close
conversation, ami, though unobserved by I hem,
he could huar them dlsllnetlv, but could nut un
derstand a word they said. The stranger ordered
his horse early the next morning mm left. Mr.
Nov remained In his room all that day reading
mid writing.
now TUB DEATH OP TUB PIIINCC IMfEUIAL
AFFECTED HIM.
Key’s conduct, when lie, heard of the death of
Napoleon's eon, the Duke of llelehstailt (June,
l&fcj), was, to say the least of It, curious. Hu
first received the * Inlclligeucu through a private
letter from New Jersey* which was handed to
him one afternoon during school hours, lie
read the letter, ami at once {'arose from his seat,
threw the letter ou the floor, stamped upon tt.
took other papers from his pocket, toro them
In shreds, strode violently up nml down thu
floor, and otherwise acted almost as a maniac.
This conduct, of course, frightened the school*
children, nml Mrs. Dalton, then tv sehool-clrl,
went to him ami asked what was the mutter.
Placing his right timid on ids forehead nml unit
ing into vacancy lie said In a dramatically
melancholy time: “The i'rinee Imperial Is dead
and mv hopes uro blasted.” Jlo dismissed thu
school, saving there would ho no session until
the followlmr week. He then went to his rpntu
mid destroyed a largo number of private papers,
and for several days his conduct was such that
his friends feared he would commit suicide.
Three vears later hd wrote the following lines In
Mrs. Dalton’s album, which-1 have been permit
ted to copy:
“ OONB with run or.oniES, OONE.”
Though 1 of tao chosen the choicest,
To (ante cave her loftiest tune;
Though I ’lining the Drove was thu bravest,
My plume ami my baton are gone 1
My eagle that mounted to conquest
until Hlmipoit from his iiltitmle high,
A nroy to a viilturu the foulest,
No more to revisit the sky.
One sigh to the hopes thnt have perished,
One tear to the wreck of thu past.
One look noon all 1 have cherished,
One lingering look—'Us the lust.
And now from remembrance 1 banish
The glories which “hone in mv train;
Oht vanish, fond memories, vanish;
Jfcturn not to sting mo again.

Mr. Wilfred Turner, an'aged gentleman, than
whom no man In North Carolina stands higher
nor is more respected, says: “ 1 went to school
to Peter titnart Ncy In IBJo and ’iM, and knew
him well, i have no doubt- but that be was
Marshal Key. Certain it was, bo was a soldier,
mid it was evident be was no ordinary soldier,
but a man of rank and genius.”
The Kov. Mr. Albeit, a Methodist minister,
savs: “ 1 was one of Noy’s pupils when ho
taught at Oak Hill Academy, and remember
him well, lie was a noble looking man, and
showed his military training In his every step
and movement, lie was a great admirer of
Napoleon Uonapano,'—always spoke of him In
terms of the highest admiration; and ud to Uio
time of the death of the Prince Imperial ho
often spoke of returning' to Franco when the
lionsoarte dynasty should bo restored, which
tveut he anticipated would soon occur. He was
nut an ordinary man In auy sense, ami 1 do not
hesitate to say that In my opinion be was none
other lhau the great Marshal of tbu Empire.”
Mrs. M. C. Daltou, an aged lady of marked
Intelligence and of unusual Information, aaysi
”1 am aa thoroughly couvmccd of the fact that

In these tctscs, written in my album not long

[Recorded above.] “I saw him once,” contin

COUNTERFEIT COIN.
Kxnegrratcd View of tlie Amount in Circu
lation—Homo Alfitorlni of the Craft—A
Danger (Srouler in Appearance than Iteall
ly—Work of the Secret Service Division,
Jfeto Ywk Herald,
WARiMNnro.v, I). C., Fob. 4.—Officials of tlie
Treasury deny the newspaper reports of ao ex
tensive element of hocus cola in our metallic
circulating medium. The amount bos been re
ported to be as much as |2,(XX),000, but tbo
Treasury ofllcials believe that (5,000 is
more than the reality. They do not
deny, however, that the resumption of
specie payments has (riven new life to the
almost obsolete industry in this country,—
namely, the counterfeiting of coin. It is a
curious fact that the imitation of a coin curren
cy is more extensively practiced by dishonest
men than that of a paper circulation, especially
of late years, when the engraving of paper
money has become so elaborate as to bo a work
of art which the counterfeiter can hope to sim
ulate only by the scnuiiitlon of the skill of a
lifetime mid a considerable amouut of capital.
It Is estimated, for instance, that the
net of plates from which Tom Ballard
printed Ids famous counterfeits necessitated
an expenditure of from (i,UOO to (5,000
for their engraving and preparation. On gen
eral principles tills sum of money would usually
satisfy the average mau of Bollard's rank in life
hy buying him a house and home, and make
him content to live out bis life in honest and
simple labor. But the counterfeiting of coin
requires no such elaborate or costly outfit. A
supply of plaster of Fads and o set of the coins
to bo ‘imitated are about all Unit is needed. Tlie
character of the work turned out under such
circumstances is. of course, quite various, ami
depends upon the skill or address of the artisan,
in this simple wav arc made most of the bogus
nickels and subsidiary silver coins which oc
casionally trouble the public.
The genuine coin is fixed carefully In the pulp
or plaster, and an ovcrlvlng surface Is then
pressed down upon it,nnd the whole left to dry.
When hard the two parts of the mold are sep
arated, the coin taken out mid n hole or “gate,”
the counterfeiter terms it, drilled to the edge
of the hollow space. The base metal is poured
inrough Ibis “ gate,” and entering tlie mold
takes the shape mid form of the genuine orig
inal. But the form is always slightly deficient
in size, for the reason that the genuine coin Is cut
from cold strlns of metal, whereas the counter
feit Is made of molten metal which shrinks
slightly as it cools, leaving it measurably small
er limn the limits of the mold. This defect
cun nearly always be detected in counterfeit
coins, which are made by molds. Hence there
are several patent devices giving the exact size
of the genuine pieces, which at once betray the
counterfeit when tlie latter are subjected to test
with them. There are counterfeits, too, which,
like Government work, are made with stamp
mid die, but in these, us in nil classes of coun
terfeits, there Is some imperfection in color,
lustre, weight, sound, or general appearance
Which betrays them.
The counterfeiter of coin Is the most trouble
some to the police and detectives. J lis name is
Legion. Tit's cheapness of tbo outlay tempts
him constantly to undertake the making of bad
inunev. He can work in any ordinary room, in
an ordinary bouse, with a few handfuls of
plaster, a small crucible, and a couple or dollars
of money. Whereas the coqulcrfcitcr of paper
money must have quite an establishment ami
run tuc risk of inviting suspicion of bis opera
tions. He baa also to he careful of the com
pany he keeps, and to remain far In the
background out of sight of the retail "shovors "
who circulate tlie money. But the coin counter
loiter is humbler, and content wILb lighter re
turns for his enterprise. He is a nuisance
rather than a felon, practically at least. Like a
mushroom, lio is surfacing up constantly, but
Hue that bit of vegetation ho is quickly sup
pressed. Ills pewter dimes mid quarters arc
soon detected, mid Ills occupation gone.
When it Is said that the counterfeiter's
mime is Legion it Is not meant Unit bo
is like the •* stipe ” soldier of the theatre who
repents himself every few seconds in the march
of tlie grand army. Ho is veritably numerous.
The coin counterfeiter Boon desists from tils
business, lie sees that bis work of art is not so
deceptive ns bethought it would be. Taking
the risk of detection mid his failure to make
money together, he gradually comes to the con
clusion Unit tlie game isn’t worth the candle.
For this reason the counterfeiter of email coins
is generally u tyro. He seldom becomes a pro
fessional.
The more elaborate methods arc, of course,
more dangerous, but tlie injury to tlie commu
nity at largo Is greatly overestimated. Consid
ering the vast area of the country, and tbtfflltfu
blou of money among the people, it seemed no
extravagant estimate Uinta million or more of
the cola currency was counterfeit. But itshould
he remembered that money, paper or metal,
is always undergoing Uie winnowing
process of n passage through tlie
Ininks or the bunds of intelligent
merchants and business men generally. The
false is soon detected ami relegated to harmless
seclusion, flow many millions of bad money
might be shown were the desks and tills of re
, tail tradesmen to give up Urn brassy quarters
mid quicksilvered halves which were taken bv
Ignorant clerks or lu the hurry of trade. Such
coins ore stranded in the tradesman’s money
drawer, there to remain as mementoes of the
past. And what a curiosity shop any bank
might start with similar objects I The free cir
culation of money Is like the free circulation
of the nlr. It clears itself of Us deleterious
elements. . , .
The dangerous coin counterfeits referred to
arc such as those which weru recently detected
nt the United States Treasury In New Turk.
These weru (20 gold pieces time had passed the
ordeal of the Bank of Hngluml, amt were de
tected only when they came within the range of
the optics of some of Undo Sum's olllclals.
They bad been bored from the edge nml (14
worth of gold extracted, tha hole being
tilled up with some composition with
which exact weight was made. Tills
substitution was all the moro Ingenious uml
elan ling for the reason that tha bur to such
counterfeiting previously had been the luck of
1 something heavy enough and cheap enough to
take tha place ol gold. It was almost un axiom
of the banker that when a gold coin was the
right size uml exact weight it must be genuine,
for rba reason that it would bo impossible to
make a substitution (or mi extracted
portion of it with anything but platinum
or some composition of platinum or
• other heavy metal, dearer, commer
cially, than gold il«eH, weight for weight. Some
nice calculations had been made in the coins
referred to, both as to Uiesu points and, doubt
-1 less, also as to wbut Is culled “ the limit of
1 tolerance." This is Urn allowance lor reason
able wear, ami is measured by the age of (lie
1 coin. Au old coin which Inis lost by wear not
more than a certain percentage ot us original
weight Is accepted at its lull weight, and Is a
legal-tender, so to speak, for Its face value at
i the United Slates Treasury in all cases.
Much of Urn above Information was acquired
; in the course of a visit to tbo Secret Service
Divisional the Treasury, where tlie statistics of
i counterfeiting operations uru recorded by Col.
Brooks w ith the precision attending the opera
tions of the entire Department, indeed, tins
apartments of the decrcl Service Division are a
little Treasury In themselves. A number of
i safes, reaching well up to tbo celling, uru stored
■ with the spoil of tlie caid4 ol tint
, Secret Service men. Files qfc apparent
i greenbacks and National-Bank jetties duim
’ uu lu bundles and labeled like tbaumourccs of
i the Treasury Itself occupy onoNift of these
i safes. In thu adjoining sales arc heaps of cloth,
i bags of apparent com. each lied up and sealed
i with red sealing-wax, like the contents of Uncle
i Ham's cash-room lu another part of the build
t lug. Indeed, were sumo burglar to make au cti
, trance some night lutu the Treasury and by
i chance come across this "boodle" he would
luucy that ho had come upon the genuine treas
ure itself, so delusive is It lu its outward seem
ing. Ju this curious museum of man's efforts
, to cheat his fellow-man, Col, Brooks exhibits,
■ with something of pity ana pride commingled,
i the wonderful (OIK) counterfeit greenback tor
which Toui Ballard Is now serving Ills thirty
years In prison. Four of the notes arc nil Hint
are accounted for. A, couple of these went
through the banks without detection. A
fourth, the one in Col. Brooks’ collection,
passed the outer portsls of (he United
Stales Tresaury Itself, and was only delected
in some of the Interior ofllcce. It Is a most
skillfully-executed piece of work. The fact
that the paper Is cenulna was thu occasion of
much surprise until it was ascertained Hint Bal
lard had taken a genuine note of small denom
ination nnd by adds washed It free of Its
original designs. It was the orthodoxy of the
paper that to greatly helped the evil mission of
the counterfeit. In this collection are also
many bundles of the famous fives on the
Traders’National Dank of Chicago, a counter
feit so welt done that the hank had to recall all
Its genuine notes mid change the plate.
This great pile of bad money Is moreover only
a comparatively recent accumulation. Accord
ing to the books of tbo division there was de
stroyed by maceration on the 18th and 19th of
December, 1870, about $1,000,000 of paper
money. This was the gathering of six years.
At the same time there was melted upless than
SI,OOO of bogus coin. The destruction Included
450 sets of engraved platca and molds.
With the fall in the gold pre
mium a few years ago nnd the
emergence of coin into circulation
again the coin counterfeiter began to operate,
lienee the hooks of the division show the cap
ture of $13,000 bogus cotn from January, 1875,
to date, or twelve times the amount of the pre
vious six years of undisputed paper circulation.
The coin counterfeits are more numerous and
less dangerous as they descend the scale of de
nominations—that Is, down to the nickels—
for the counterfeit cents nud tbree-ccut pieces
ore such wretched things as never would
deceive and are only tolerated because
their Insignificance preserves them from
expulsion from the currency. The Irrgcr pieces
are rarer, and when detected are embargoed at
once. The raids of the detectives are nearly
always successful in slopping thu counterfeits
before they are numerously circulated. The
swindler naturally experiments with a few at
first, and the detection of a few of these gives
the alarm and blockades thu rest of his work.
Durlnellto Interval between December, 1870, and
June, 1878. the Secret Service Division stamped
the word “bad” on 32.408 pieces of counter
feit currency of all kinds, paper and coin. This
word is impressed upon all bogus coin, so as to
secure It against the peradventuro of loss and
reissue while It Is awaiting the duty of “ evi
dence ” against thu manufacturer. It Is this
intended service as “ evidence ” Hint accounts
for thu loug preservation of so much coun
terfeit money la Col. Brooks' safe.
In abort, the public, lo this hunpy season of
special payments, need have little apprehension
of suffering from counterfeit coins.
