FOBGED BILLS OF EXCHANGE. A very extraordinary manufactory of forged and fraudulent bills ef exchange has just been discovered in the heart of the City of London. Three men were brought before the Lord Mayor, charged with forging and uttering a fictitious bill of exchange for J6120. Mr. Nelson, the City solicitor, said that he had possession of no fewer than 20 bills of exchange, which had been fabricated during the last month, amounting in nominal value to X500, on which there were not less than 74 signatures, the whole of which were forgeries. The bills were in five languages, and purported to have been drawn at various seats of commerce all over the world. They were drawn on paper manu- factured for the express purpose, and in the workshop of the prisoner dies were found, by which the names of twenty-two real firms in England could be stamped upon the bills, as verifying the endorsements upon them, and thus give them an undoubted appearance of authen- ticity. The prisoners were remanded.
