Tho reported death of Charles
S. 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 is Aetou's story,

South. 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. The professor was
qiiilo a sociable person, who could
niliint himself to almost nny cii
cumstouccs, and feigning to bo n
Northern born man, he sought out
a orinler TActon and made a con
tract with iiiui tor eiinruvinb' and

tho work. In a few weeks tho fac

of the tuiiitii'K on delivery of the

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

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".
A little below Pomeroy the
steamer Telegraph nearly ran over
him, so neor that ho was under the
I, II . l...l.v.,.I I nn fir'
:illtl! no iiiiiuumvii,
but for somo reason his cull was
not heeded.
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.
At this part of his nariutivo his
supper was brought lu, consisting
ofu glass of beer, eggs and toast,
Ititrats no meat, takes only two
meals a day.
L'oiiiinuiiiL' his uarrativo while
caiinghe went unto say that ho
tin, is thu nooiilo on tho way are
still greatly mistaken us to his
method of tniveliug, believing lib
iloastwiihoutuuy exertion ou his
pari, and that a boat accompanies
him. Ho savs that the general
question ot Vlrgiiiiaus Is." Say
Mister, uro ye filled wilh wind or
cork V'
Ho wauls it expicssly under
tood Hi ut ho bout or flmting np
puratus of nny kind accompanies
him. and that It is continual hard
work twice ns hard as rowing
Pbvtically ho feels hotter, una
has become hardened to tho work
His muscles though get sore, aud
ll is hard work to koep warm
tho water. The tcmperaturo
tho water from Wheeling her
averaged nbcutfivo degrees above
freezing. From Pittsburg to
Wheeling it was three degrees be
low freezing, being in Uio leo a
good part of the way.
The run from Marietta hero is
the longest ho lias ever made or is
likely lomakoon tlio Ohio river.
It was 102 miles in tweuty-seven
hours. Ho will led uro this eve
ning. Ho says that is what he
lots not likeahoilt it, but tho peo
plo invito him, and levying ft liltlo
rcvenuo ou the curious bo consents
to the bore for an hour and a hall
or so.

A Senatorial lilt.
New York, March 4.
'A special to tho Post from Wush
inatou snys: During a passago-ai
arms between Blalno and Tbur-i
man Blaine attempted to interrupt
tho Ohio senator lu somo remarks.
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.
