Counterfeit Confederate Notes.

--These notes are being largely imported from the United States via Nassau. The Atlanta (Ga.) Confederacy says:

‘ One of the vessels engaged in running the blockade between Charleston and Nassau, brought through a small box or package, addressed to a firm in Macon, Ga., to the care of a commission house in Charleston. By some means the nature of the contents was ascertained or suspected when it was opened and found to be some $200,000 of counterfeit Confederate notes. We have seen one bill of this lot. It is a counterfeit $20, of the Duncan plate, and is by far the best executed and most dangerous counterfeit we ever saw.--We could give the points of difference, but prefer not to do so — thinking it best for the public good. We say this, however, don't take any more of the Duncan plate $20's unless you know them to be genuine, or get them from a man whom you know to be reliable and responsible. It is said that the house in Macon to which these counterfeits were directed, is a photograph or picture gallery establishment, and that the instructions were to buy cotton with it and ship the same to Nassau. We hear the members of this firm in Macon have been arrested.
