Acton from a mining accident iu the Northern part of California, brings to light an extraordinary story. Acton was formerly a prin ter iu New York, and durlug the war was engaged in counterfeiting tho paper curreucy of the Confed erate States. In this business he accumulated a fortituo, which he lost in stock speculations, nud then went to work iu California as a miner. Tho story, as told by him self, and in his own handwriting, is as follows : Tho limited mechanical resour ces of tho Confederacy compelled it to resort to the use of common lithographic printing, and it print ed its notes und bonds Iroiu lith ographic stones, makiug transfers Irom old bauk-uoto disc which hud found their way into some li thographic establishment in tho South. So primitive was tho ap pearance of these notes that they wero eagerly sought lor In the North us curiosities. Somo of them reached Washington shortlv alter the tirst emission, and au en terprising newsdealer named II a uoy, from Now York, v ho supplied tho soldier and olliiers stationed in nnil around tho capital with Northern publications, conceived tho idea of printing luc-similes of these notes Mini selling thcui ns curiosities. With as many diuer out kinds ns ho could procure he hastened on to New York n ml gave a printer (Acton) un cider to set up iu typo and engrave on wood imitations of livo or six notes of denominations from one dollar to ten. Tho first order was for about six or seven thousand notes. The l-miind became so great that the plates were electrotypctl, nud 20 or thirty thousand copies per day were turned out. These were sold in all tho cities at the Aortli by newsboys nud newsdealers. As ihu rebellion progressed tho sol diers in tho ariny fotiud llicso notes, poorly printed as they were, niaio potent in procuring supplies ot lariu produce, chickens, o. trom tlio colored peoplo than our own currency. in fact, thero were many persons in tho South who would tuko no other. A gentle man, a professor of music, George 11. llrlggs, living at Atlanta, Gcor irin, while passing through New York on his wny home, procured from tlio newsboys a supply of tho i(..Klmlli! note, with a view ol getting up better imitations. Uu Ids nniral at Atlanta hu'miulo ar- rauiwmctils with W. II. Teller, finui'tly from Hartford, Crfnuce- ticttt, n paying teller or oliiccr in the bunk ol Fulton, nt Atlanta, to procure n better Imitation of the liiitro notes, which were parties who were directly Interest ed iii this transaction of the true source whence tltey received their bad money. From that time for-, ward there was a largo amount of those fac similes used. They were advertised in tho Northern papers to be sold at three cents on the dollar, and millious were printed and sold. The next spring. 186.1, tho professor again appeared iu New York, supplied with au abun dance of I u mis. After ho had becu in the city somo threa weeks Acton met him aud compelled him to sottle a balance on an unpaid note. In revenge ho caused letters to be sent through suoti sources that they would likely be captured by our force, to the effect that Acton was making genuine notes for tho Confederate Government, and hecauscd his arrest nud deten tion until tho trtio state of the matter was discovered. Tho Pro fessor himself wa then arrested nnd held for some tlmo. Alter a while he procured bail, disappear od, und bus not been hoard from since. There cannot Ins an accural o es timate of tho amount of this tnoii ev which w as printed in New York or Philadelphia during tlio three years, for it was generally sold by tho tlionsaud pieces, and it was priutcd aud finished us parties wanted it.

This bank officer, having a know lodge of what bank notes wero used, had no difficulty iu ma king a selection; anil supplying tlio professor, as ho was usually called, with tho necessary funds, ho scut him to New York to pro cure imitations of tho most desi rable kind.

Ho puss Clarion. This number of our paper is printed with new type. In dis pensing wilh tho old dress, our feelings uro akin to the warrior's who bids tullcu to the battered and weal fier-bcuteti armor In w hich he has passed through many uu event ful nnd stormy cotito-t. It was lu this armor that our journal went forth eleven years ago to do batlla against tho dlslriindilsing Constitution, through which tho adventurers who had seized the Slate rnvcrnmcut sottifht to bind chains which they had forged. From that time forward in all our efforts to dislodgn tlio loos of our ..nlllllllllOVl'lL 1th from tlio citadel ill which they had entrenched thcui selves and to place where it prop erly belonged in the keeping of bur own oiis-it served us well nud faithfully. With us tiicchief coil soiatlou has been that lu lollowitig thoo nvictiotisof duty, wo have been encouraged and strengthened bv a ueneroiis and approving pub blic. Never have wc addressed a lar"er concourse of readers, thau it is now our privilego to do: and ns loktn oiotir appreciation ol a cou fideiico that bus never abated, but has mown with our growth, wo havejpresented our journal in new and attractive gnru. vntcnl of our rcnuwed doiermina linn to publish ti miner worthy ot tho caitso to whioli its best. efforts have been dedicated. Tho past Is behind u. Our dealings nrcwith the future. Our journal shall be nicy of tho times, and redolent of current event In tho hurlv-biirly era in w hich our hues have been been cast.

Gallipolis, O.. March C Mr. Eoyton arrived here at 8 o'clock this morning, very much fatigued. Ho left Marietta at 5 o'clock yes terday moruisig, stopping at no place till he reached here. He took hUmeaU which were very light ones, in tho water, tho steamer Chesapeake supplying him with one. Ho left Marietta itt a heavy fog, which lasted until tfJ, bv which time ho hid reached Blen- uerhassct Island, thus losing all sight of Piukerbbiirg. lit arrived at Raveuswood at halt pnst six iu the cveninsr: passed the steamer Carrie at Goose Island at half past nine: Syracuse at halt past tour in the moruing".

About a mile audn half above here his whole journey wus about to come lu an end, from tho fact that an old mail had covered him with his rifle, supposing him tube somo fine gaino. Tho eaptaui says iu this wuv ho runs his greatest riik. People imagine some wild miiiiial iu tho water, ho often has to yell out or blow his horn.

Thiirman said, " Sit down sir." in a Aery ovcrboaring maimer. When Blalno had, soou after, secured tho floor, ho said ho wished to make a personal explanation. Ho had been lu tho senate thrco years. During that time Tlutrman had in sulted him on more thau one occa sion, and he had twice infromod him In private, that such conduct wiis distasteful. Now he wished to say that if Tliuriiian was of his own age, he (Tliurmaii) would hear from him in a different way, but under tho circumstances he wonla onir say that such conduct had become insufferable.
