Forged check.

--On Tuesday last, officer Blankinship received a message in the lower station-house to the effect that a man was in custody at the Exchange Hotel, for attempting to use a forged check for $25, purporting to have been signed by Judge Crump. The officer hastened to the hotel, and was informed that the man had been set at liberty; that he was an "ignorant Jew," and his custodians were satisfied that he did not attempt the fraud with a knowledge of the facts. This course, if the paper was really forged as represented, was not over and above shrewd. The matter certainly deserved an investigation, and the unenlightened Israelite ought to have been detained.
