nies, each composed of not less than sixty men. Of this body of men there were nine German companies, five Irish companies, two French companies, and one Italian company. Every day the military force is strengthened by the accession of new military companies.--Daily some of our companies are leaving for Virginia, to offer their services for twelve months. We have a flag six yards long, in the centre of which is the map of Maryland, bordered by the seven stars. On the flag-staff is a small stripe with the words "Jeff. Davis, President of the Confederacy." On both ends of the stripe is a single star, which signifies that the State will soon follow. All the emblazonment on the flag is in gold. The flag was presented by the ladies of Baltimore. Hicks' Union party in this State is not strong enough to oppose the Southern Confederacy men, and should a fight take place between them, they will find it out. The Union party is now having the free negroes drilled in military tactics.
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.
