The Counterfeiting case. --Harvey Wash, the person who was arrested on Thursday, charged with passing a counterfeit gold piece on Perry Jones, and having $507 in spurious gold coin in his possession, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday. Without commencing an investigation of the case, the Mayor continued until Wednesday next, and the accused was remanded to jail. Messrs. Crump, Nance and Williams appeared as counsel. Wash was for many years a resident of Hanover county, where he held the position of Constable, or Sheriff. He now lives in Appomattox, to which place officers have been dispatched to make a search for more counterfeit money and coining implements. We understand that he claims to have received the money from a drover, in payment for hogs. Whether he will be able to establish his innocence or not, remains to be seen. At present, matters look rather serious for him.
Passing counterfeit money. --Harvey Wash, charged with passing a counterfeit $2.50 gold piece on Perry Jones, and with having in his possession $500 in counterfeit gold coin, was arraigned before the Mayor yesterday. The wealth and former good reputation of the prisoner tended to excite considerable public curiosity, and a large crowd was in attendance. The counsel for the accused--Messrs. Crump, Nance and Williams--announced their readiness to proceed, and the witnesses for the Commonwch he alludes. I afterwards went to the house of the prisoner, in Appomattox county, and found there a porte-monnaie, containing $12.50 in coin, which I supposed to be spurious, but Mr. Pairo has pronounced nine dollars of it good money. Perry Jones.--Saw the prisoner on New Year's night. He asked me to change a $2.50 gold piece, and I did so, giving him silver in exchange. This is the piece he gave me. [Exhibited it.] The next morning I ascertained it was not good. On the following nig

of political corruption and putrefying sores, having the form of Union, while the essence was dead. It stinks in the nostrils of men, and it is high time Virginia had freed herself from the body of this death. Mr. Woolfolk called for the previous question; which, being ordered by the House, the Speaker put the main question, on which the ayes and nays were called by Mr. Kemper.--The voting resulted for second reading — ayes 108, nays 30. The bill was then read by sections. Mr. Jones, of Appomattox, submitted a motion to change the time to 31st January. Mr. Robertson, of R, favored the time (7th February) in the bill as reported from committee. Mr. Haymond said he lived only 18 miles from Pennsylvania. He was not afraid of the Black Republicans. He was opposed to shortening the time for holding the Convention. Mr. Alderson, from Webster and Nicholas, said his people did not take the Richmond papers, and if the 31st of January was fixed upon as the time
Attempt at Highway Robbery. --On Thursday morning, between one and two o'clock, as Mr. Isaac Burnett, was proceeding to the second market, in this city, with a load of vegetables, he was stopped by three men, (in soldiers' clothes,) who inquired whether he had any eggs. He replied, "none." To this remark they gave the lie. Mr. B. then told them that they might search the cart, and he would give them some of what it contained if they would not further molest him. He left the cart, to comply with his promise, when he found they had already taken a bag of snaps. He was then seized and badly beaten by the ruffians. Mr. B. afterwards reached the city, and was taken to the house of Mr. Perry Jones, whither Dr. Trent was called to dress his wounds. He received two very severe cuts upon his head, from some blunt instrument. Mr. B. is a very in offensive man, and highly respected by all who know him. He is now doing as well as could be expected, considering the nature of his wounds.
