The Prisoners gave their names as Charles Later and Thomas Harvey; upon being searched, twenty one-pound, and one ten-pound forged notes were found upon the former, and two one-pound and one ten pound note of the same description upon the latter, each of them having some good notes in their possession : they are of respectable appearance and admitted the charge when they were taken into custody.
