CHEMICAL CHEQUE FRAUDS.—A correspondent writes: A rather dangerous discovery has been made (and in more than one instance has been known to have been put into practice) that will require all the knowledge and taot possessed by bank dfefrks and others to detect, and from which discovery very serious consequences may arise. By a certain 'chemical' being applied to writing on a cheque or draft, and the paper placed between a couple of sheets of blotting paper in a copying press, and repeated pressure brought to bear upon it, the writing which has been wet by the •chemicals' at once entirely disappears, and other writing may be substituted. This knowledge must have been possessed by a man who last week obtained a draft in London for £ 8 at Parr's Bank, at Sandbach. The whele of the writing was cleverly obliterated, and the draft converted into one for £ 200, This was cashed at the Commercial Bank, Manchester, went through the hands of the Lendon agents, and also at Parr's Banking Company; through all these it passed muster, and was not detected until the draft got back again to Sandbach, 60 effectively had the fraud been perpetrated." BELLOW. FEVER AT RIO JANEIRO.—A tele- gram from Rio Janeiro, dated 1st March, states that the yellow fever had been raging there.

On Wednesday Mr. Louin accompanied Mrs Green for a drive in a park phaeton drawn by a pair of cobs, the lady having the reins and the coachman sitting behind. While going at a quiet pace down Hyde vale, Greenwich, one of the cobs started from some un- accountable cause and the vehicle was brought in con- tact with the kerbstone, causing both animals to dash off furiously down the bill. The coachman jumped wut, but Mr. Louin and Mrs. Green retained their seats and endeavoured to stop the horses. In this they were unsuccessful, and the vehicle ultimately came in contact with a coal waggon and was com- pletely overturned with its occupants. Mr. Louin fell forward on his head, the phaeton turned over on his legs, and he was extricated much injured. Mrs. Green suffered some severe external injuries. Dr. Theobald stated that Mr. Louin died on Sunday from the in- juries which he had received, there being a contused wound at the back of the head. The jury returned a verdict of Accidental death."
