Look out for Counterfeits. --We were shown by officer Hicks last evening a curious bank note, of the denomination of $10, on the Mechanics' Bank of Augusta. Its fine appearance at first sight is likely to prove dangerous to those receiving bills not accustomed to examine their money at the moment of reception. By looking at the signatures, however, the counterfeit can easily be detected. In the genuine bill the names of the President and Cashier are, as in most bank notes, below, in tire right and left hand corners, while in the spurious they are placed in the middle. The vignettes on the spurious notes are placed at the lower part of the bill. On the genuine they are above. This counterfeit is thought to be an alteration from the counterfeit ten dollar bank notes of the Mechanics Bank of Tennessee, as it bears a resemblance to the latter.--Charleston Courier.
