EXTRAORDINARY FORGERIES. (From the American journals received by the Acadia,) Colonel Monroe Edwards has distinguished himself in a manner to render him an object of interest on both sides of the Atlantic. Therefore, we have thrown to- gether the following facts in relation to his past life, deeds, and misdoings --Monroe Edwards is a man about 32 years of age about five feet seven inches and a half in height, rather well made, but not very stout built, a sharp, keen restless, voluptuous eye, rather a low forehead, and is something of a coxcomb in his dress. He was born in Sbelbyvilla, Kentucky, where his father resided till recently. His father's name, we believe, was Amos Russell Edwards. The old gent'e- man removed some two or three years since to Texas, where lie died soon after. Of the early life of yoong Monroe Edwards wehnvebeen ableto learn but very little, except the rumour of a forgery of his father's name for a tt,,e. scjuction of, ,t young lady who was at a boarding school it1 Korituckjfy and who has stiil a living victim jf her shmne tonoftc and take care of. Ti. « e are other rumours of forgeries of his in earlier life, but they want authentication. It was after all the hard fighting in Texas was over, and after it was well ascertained that there was no longer any danger to any one who visited that country, that Monroe Edwards condescended to honour it with his presence. Of course he located himself near the seat of Government, and, with funds furnished him by his father, continued to. make quite n passable appearance in tolerably good society there for a time. After the death of his father he evinced signs of wildness and dissipation, which he had before contrived to keep hidden from sight. One of these was an attempt to seduce a young lady in Houston, which nearly cost him bis life. Failing in this lie took up with a misera- ble negro wench, and at last, by some means, bought a black girl, 14 or 15 years of age, debauched her* taught her the English language, and christened her Kitty Clover. After this, finding himseU getting low in funds, he forged the title-deeds to a valuable estate in Texas, and forged a conveyance of the sante tosom person for about ten thousand dollars. In tbis ma- noeuvre he was detected, and for this be was beld to bail, and whilst under bail, as we are inforawd, madet his escape from Texas, carrying the black girl, Kitty- Clover, along with him, dressed in boy's efotbes. 01) his return from Texas he stayed sonn> fcitnc in New Orleans, where he was suspected also of a small for- gery 011 one of the banks, and more than suspected of a liaison with his landlord's wife.. For these little foibles he felt himself under the disagreeable necessity of removing his quarters, and soon made the best of his way up the river to Cincinnati. Here an entirely new idea seemed to strike him. He resolved to wor't on the feelings of the abolitionists, and feeling desilolas. of travelling to Europe he determined to do so, if pos-. sible, at their expence. For this purpose, he manu- mitted the black girl, Kitty Clover. He also caused a statement to be published in some of the western. papers, that Colonel Monroe Edwards had manumitted 200 of his slaves in Kentucky, and this act of apparent liberality was trumpeted forth in all the papers on th' northern seaboard, and made the subject of laudator comment at all the abolition lectures in this and otht,, cities and towns, and Colonel Edwardtf himself held up as a burning and shining light among the woolly^ heads, and a noble, example for all others to follow His bait having taken remarkably well, the C, then came on to this place, put up at the uliel and lived in fine style with his bifto* vlty Hotel, by, was tbe girl Kitty Clov by-the- after he came here r' Soon Tappan as th.. "e introduced himself to Lewis 200 Colonel Kdwards who had liber ited s in the west; and he also introduced Kilty lover -to Lewis as his black Tom, who had a twin sister in New Orleans, so like him that when the two were together nobody could tell which from which. Lewis was highly delighted at the interview, took Edwards and the wench round all the abolition circles of the city, and introduced them to a great nniribcr of riecent white ladies and sympathizing gen- tlemen. All this was very well while it lasted, and went no further. But by and by the Colonel (though where and how he obtained the title of Colonel nobody knows) talked of an act of great injustice committed by the Texlan Government as lie said, in keeping some slaves brought direct from Africa, in violation of the laws of nations in relation thereto. He said he was going to England to prevail on the British Viftrn- ment to make a demand of those slaves, and so forth. He also hinted at being employed as a delelPate from the Abolition Society of this city to that of London to see into the case. Finding that his hints were not sufficiently plain or readily acted upon, he came out bo'^ly, and asked for the loan of a sum of money from the society of five thousand dollars, for the purpose of proceeding to England to settle the business. The reason he adduced for wanting so large a sum was the necessity of keeping a carriage and making a first-rate appearance. This modest request startled Lewis Tap- pan, who then wrote to Cincinnati, and found out that no 200 slaves had been liberated by the Colonel. He wrote to Edwards, who replied back angrily two or three sharps notes passed the;Colonel demanded all his letters back but Lewis, who keeps an office for lookmgaltcreverybody's businessbuthisown, thought they might come into use some day, and kept them. The Colonel then raised the wind somehow, and went to England in one of the Boston steamers, taking Kit- ty Clover along with him. In London be forged let- ters to Lord Brougham, Dan O'Connell, Earl Spencer, and others, in the name of Daniel Webster, &c, He also forged the names of Mr. Van Buren and Mr. Forsyth two letters of introduction. From Broughmn he got nothing from Dan-the cunning Dan—he got lOt. or 201., on the streugth of his affection for the negroes, one of whom was then with child by him. From Earl Spencer he got 250/. After he arrived here it appears be went sor.th to Philadelphia. The girl, Kitty Clover, lay at our Almtionse, and then followed him to Philadelphia with his and her child.He is suspected ofcoinrrtit- ting other forgeries before those in August, on Brown, Brothers, and Co., and Flet-cher, aiid Alex- ander, and Co.; but these are aU that can be posi- tively traced to him at present. The particulars of the two forgeries, and the method by which he was arrested, we have already stated in detail. But there i* one very singular fact which has not been stated. The letter which was sent to him describ- ing the funds forwarded for Fletcher and Co., was dated August 28th, and addressed to Alexandria, D.C. He got this money August 30th; and on the 8th of September he or some one bought a bill of exchauge on London for Colonel Monroe Edwards, from the house of Prime, Ward, and King, here, on Baring and Co., London, for X255, the exact sum he borrowed of Earl Spencer. The bill of exchange was found in his trunk. This would appear as if the frtow really had some spark of sensibility left in his heart; and his apparent desire to provide for the miserable wretch be had seduced, and his mulatto child, caused him to remain in Philadel- phia over Friday and Saturday. He intended to go west and south on Saturday, lie was arrested or Saturday. Had he gone he uever would bav e; been arrested,

THIS elegant preparation of Magnesia, Ibe result of much study and cxpe<iment. is fast, superseding all other medicines of its class, and is now very generally acknowledged to be the- beft purgative ever introduced as a public medicine. The almost un- precedented sale which it has obtained, has aroused tlie cupirii'v "f many unprincipled pi'rpons, who are always re: dy to take advantage of the popularity of another's invention and this medicine has therefore been extensively imitated, hy Compounds possessing noue of its piopcrties. Purchasers can ouly. rely pon the Government Stamp, which, in the genuine article, has Moxon and Smith, (then co-partnert) ''henaists, Hull, engraved on it. This is tli.s only pertain proof of the genuine preparation. It possesses! all the efficacy of the most approved !rie Saline Purgatives, without the disagreeable taste which renders such medicines so ob.)"Xi iii to the palate and stomach; and is universally allowed, by all who have SVcu ft 3 fitir trial, to be superior to all other medicines as a PAMjTLy PfJRGATIVE, And as an invaluable companion U} the traveller, par- ticularly those visiting tropical countries th.8 sport?naan, the delicate female, the sedentary student, and to all persons subject to irregularities of the bowe's, and the disorders resulting therefrom.

Ki|)gtonv October 11th, 1841. ,I We find the following in the (furrier Beige, under date Brussels) Oct. 30 — "Two new si-pouns and two field pieces, with horses and itminullit-;on, have been seized in one of our suburbs. Six persóns were arrested last rrigh. among whom^jtis said, are the Intendnnt of the Marechuas- s^e, .nnd a captain of the wouuded of September. Two Generals have fled. The place where the cannon-balls were cast has been discovered, as also the person who tpade the cartridges. "The four pieces of cannon that werc seized are in the Town-hall, Attempts have been made to seduce some sub- altern officers of the garrison, who denounced them. To-morrow was the day fixed for the execution of the plot, which had ramifications at Ghent, Ant- werp, and Liege, among the discontents. It might have succeeded if it had broken out in the night, for the ofiicers living in the suburbs might have been killed before they could grt to their barracks. This accounts for the order jpiven to all the plfipcrs of the garrison to return to the pity. f' from wfyat transpired the authorities pretend to have the clue to a vast counter-revolutionary con- spiracy, which had been contriving for several months. It Is said that the Ministry have sent numerous orders and instructions to the provinces this morn- ing. There was a council of Ministers this morning, and despatches have been sent to the King. "P.S. 3 o'clock p.m. — Qoner^lg Vandersimpers and Yanderinpre, who. were supposed to have fled, have been found concealed in the house of a painter.

THE EXCHEQUER-BILL FORGERS.…
THE EXCHEQUER-BILL FORGERS. > And now we ivould woo the serious attention of onr readers to a 11 leette" history we are about to give of the origin and causes ofihis" effect defective" at I- the Chequers." The ancient establishment of the Exchequer- office was broken up soon after Lord Melbourne first became Prime Minister. The efficient head of the working staff was a man of high talents and un- spotted integrity, nohly connected, distinguished In the diplomatic services or the country previously exereised in all the details of monetary bu-iiiess as a Commissioner of Customs, and member of Lord Wallace's celebrated commission for the reform of the revenue depai tment. The gentleman, the Right Hon. Henry Ellis, was no bigotted Tory he had supported Lord Grey's Reform Bill strenuously, but a Conservative the brother-in-law of Lord Ripon —and when that nobleman, with Lord Stanley, Sir J. Graham, and the Duke of Richmond, lelt the Whigs, one of the first opportunities that occurred of revenging Whiggery on the connexions of these important seepders was presented in the person of Mr. Ellis, Clerk of the Pells. In remodelling the Exchequer any holies^ 'Mlnistrv would have given due attention to th^ lr;ed services of Mr. Ellis, and at the salft" time have consulted for the well-working of the new system, by fixing him in some nominally new post analogous to that which he had so long held, The Whigs did otherwise-they superannuated Mr. Ellis in the prime vigour of manhood on a pen- sion of £ 1,500 a-year, heing only £ 200 a-year less than the income of his hie office. They could not give him less, bccause he was an old diplomatist, and entitled in that capacity to a pension, and because his late office had been held under a patent for life. But they incurred needlessly and absurdly this cost of .01,600 a-year during the future lite of a vigorous man of 43, or thereabouts, because they could otherwise create a post in the new Exchequer worthy of the acceptance of an octogenarian Whig baronet and worn-partisan, by lIalLe Sir Jofin New- port, who had long retired from all active life what- ever. Abolishing, therefore, the ancient office of Clerk of the Pells, they instituted a ne, one, by name the Coulrollersliip of the Exchequer; and. discarding Mr. Ellis, they placed therein the shadow of a shade-the yenerable nonentity of Newport, No wonder that under such a chief, who, we really believe, never saw the Exchequer six t imps during six years-no wonder, we say, that inferior clerks snould have been tempted by the obvious facility of tampering with the box of bills Into a wide and pro- found scheme of multiplying each Irne bill by ten or a dogen fale ones, not distinguishable from the true, because all the printing paper, stamping, &c., were correct, and in old Newport's absence a certain top clerk, hight Smith, was authorised to sign for Newport, absent on perpetual furlough. In due season-tht is to say, when the speedy abolishment of the Whig Government itself became obvious-it occurred to an ingenious little Irishman, a member of that Government, by name Spring Rice, that it would be a convenient thing for him to get old Newport to withdraw on anotht-r pension- one more, and larger than FIlis--leaving the con- troUeratup a permanent life-place, as a harbour oil the lee of the said Spring Rice. Newport was kicked out with even less ceremony than his brother driveller, the father of the Hannibals, and Rice transformed into Baron Monteagle, screwed his small person down upon the long-vacant chair of controller, Spring was neither old nor inactive—on the con- trary, he was a tight agile fellow of his few inches But Spring had no notion of being made a Lord merely for the purpose of giving dignity to the Controllerhip of Exchequer-bills. Spring had other things in petto and the little peer found that nothing would suit him better than to continue the tiort-attendance system of his toothless predecessoi and victim. Spring blossomed and bourgeoned out into a gay, amorous, vivacious "prig of nobility; and Sniilh went on with his iiigtiing-vvritilig the lofty name of Monteagle at the bottom of just as many bills as he cbase-r-quite secure that the humble aristocrat who had delegated to him this function would never condescend to inquire in what maimer it was fulfilled. The result was not long of being discovered when once there came a Tory First Lord of the Treasury and a Tory Chancellor of the Exchequer. Let it be observed we are here adopting th. edition of the story most favourable for (Jaron Spring
