Counterfeit note.

--A counterfeit note, of the denomination of fifty dollars, on a Louisiana Bank, was passed upon the proprietors of a bar-room in this city last Friday. The chevalter d'tadustrie, who was dressed in soldier clothes, purchased 75 cents' worth at the bar, and received $49.25 in change. A pretty good speculation, if the operator is lucky enough to escape arrest.
