We were shown
yesterday, by Detective J. Washington Goodrick
, a specimen of bogus Confederate States
Treasury notes in the shape of a five dollar bill.
It bears some resemblance to the original, but not enough to impose on anybody, even casually in the habit of handling money.
The signatures were evidently put on by somebody not very well skilled in chirography.
The note was recently passed on a Broad street shopkeeper, but the officer was unable to trace up the party.
The affair may have been gotten up in the North
, as it is known that unscrupulous persons there have not been deterred by any idea of propriety from entering into the counterfeiting business.
