Passing Spurious money.

--A negro man named John was yesterday arrested by Officer Morris for passing a Yankee patent medicine card on another negro named Ben for a $100 note. John had bought something of the value of $50 from Ben, and gave him this card in payment, receiving in change $500 in good money. The Mayor will dispose of the case this morning.
