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.
