The New York Herald gives the following interesting account of Huntington, the great forger. It exhibit* a series of singular opera tions which, though beginning and ending in rascality, are not without that peculiar ro mance so ofcen linked with roguery : THE HUNTINGTON FORGERIES How the Frauds were Perpetrated and tks Proceeds Squandered?Loose Mode of doing Business in Wall Street?The Bill Shavers tricked by one of' themselves?High Life Up Town, at the Fashionable Water ing Places, atul in the Tombs Since the immense frauds perpetrated by Charles b. Huntington on brokers in Wall street havo come to light, there if no small thara of curiosity in the public mind to learn how it is that he could have been ?o success ful in his rogueries in that place of sharper* The frauds committed by Schuyler, a couple of years ag>, were easily comprehended He was the President of a Kailroad O^-mpany. and entrusted with the issue of its stock ; apd the simplest mind could understand bow, with implicit confidence reposed in Lim, he could overissue stock to almost aty amount Hut ia the case of Huntington?whose name has been for the last two weeks before the public ?it is difficult to comprehend how he, who was unkuown in financial circles a year or two sg~., ocuid have succeeded in victimizing the note shavers of Wall street to the amount of some half a million of dollars. The mode by which be did so wo will try to explain : The first trace that we can find of Mr Hun t;ngton's connection with financial matters dates back only so fur as 1652 when he and two or three other individuals fell into the hands of the police of this city for the share which they had in getting up a fraudulent shinpluster concern under tho title of the '?Anacostia Bank of Washington. L) C Indictments were found against him and his accomplices on that occasion, but they were never brought to trial, on account?as ap pears from an endorsement on the bill?of some informality or incompleteness in the proof. We next find him. ehortly thereafter, hav ing a little box of an office in Wail street, where he purported to carry on the business of a bill broker in a small retail style. This business consists in acting as a sort of agent or go-betweeJ for brokers on a larger scale - that is, he woul I go to a broker and find out what he would 3ei'? certain note# for, and then, if lie found be coulJ reulue any profit by the transaction, he would buy from one and sell to another At this tiniv* he boarded up town .villi his wife on a modest scale. He agreed to pay $15 a weok for their board, but even this moderate mm Le did not, it is said, find it convenient to pay He lelt i^at boarding houeo and went to the Metropolian Hotel, where he stayed for some time; but he did not here indulge in any of tha extravagances into which be afterwards launched He subsequently went to tho New \ork M.^tel, where it seems ho commenced tv bo more libe ral in his expenditures Wo afterwards uuu him occupying part of a house in Filteenth street, and recently owning two or three houses in Twenty-Becond street. Nothing is more strange in connection with Huntington's career than the fact that he was so little known in Wall street or commercial circles Our reporter conversed to-day with some of the principal brokers on the street; few of tLem had dealings with him. and most of them had never heard of him until tha time of his arrest. And yet he cculd raise half a million of dollars among that fratcnity on forgel notes, wherein the signatures did not even pretend to be imitations The supposition is that it is only within the last eighteen months that Huntington com menced to operate on forged paper It may not be even so long. He had now an office at No 52 Wall street, and professed to carry on the legitimate business of a note broker As most of our readers are in blissful ignorance of the business of note-shaving, we will briefly describe it Commercial firms, eveu though they may have large capital, are constantly compelled to pay by notes on time instead of cash. Tho accommo latlon given by bauks is limited ; and when they decline to make more advances on tho notes of a firm, bill brokers are resorted to. These charge more or less discount on tho bills, depending upon the credit of the drawer and the length of time they may have to iun before they maturo The bills on houses in first rate standing (tech nically known as gilt edged paper) will be discounted at the rate oi ten per cent per annum, while on others, not so well known or trusted, the brokers charge a discount of two or three per cent per mouth. It follows, therefore, that in times of ordinary commer cial prosperity, when bankruptcies aie rare, theso shavers make uuite a handsome profit by their operations. Huntington was engaged in this capital business. The profits os the trade, lurga as they must have been, did not satisfy him, or were iosut ficientto enable him to gratify hisextrava gant tasta for fiuo houses, costly furniture, splendid equipages, last horses and dashing women ; so he resolved to try his hand on that branch of the profession which has conducted him to a cell in the Tombs He went to w ik systematically, and ussd at first a good^ deai of caution to evade detection. He was in the habit of going to theoffi:eof n broker in high standing and purchasing from him notes of linns sometimes to the umount of or IbU 000 in a weik. For these he always paid iii c r ified ( hecks He was an ea.-y, dash;ng looking fellow?said the broker?had always a cigar in his mouth, and was perlectly cool and nonchalant in his manner, so tnat he might very well impose on oue; but there was something about him that I could not un derstand. I could not comprehend why he should come and buy our notes, as wo did not divide the discouut with Lim, and he could make nothing by them. He afterwards let out tho secret of it. Huntington would buy theso notes, duplicate them, sell the notes again, and use the duplicates as collateral se curity in raising money At first, however, he used only the genuine notes, aud as they were always found to be correct he gradually gained tho confidence of those with whom be had dealings When he had thus completely disarmed men of all suspicion, he began to use the duplicate or forged notes. His plan was this?he would go into a not* broker 8, say he wanted to borrow $40,000 for ft mouth or so, for wbi?h he would give his own note of band and certain other bills of such and such dates and amounts as collateral security, and he would leavo a memorandum of these bill? If the broker wanted to satisfy himself that all was right, he would send to the firms pur porting to be the drawers, and inquire whether they had out the notes described. They would refer to their books, find that they had issued such notes, and consequently tho broker, not doubting that those offered by Huntington were the real ones, would advance the money asked upon them With the money thus raised, Huntington would make speculations, or would take up other bills becoming due, or would use it for his private purposes And thus he went on from week to week and ironi month to month. Escaping so often undetected, he Lagan to relax his exercise of caution Instead of buy ing up genuine notes and duplicating tfcem, he would go into a broker'i. ass to look at bu paper, run his eye over the auioun'?, , i and names of drawers, and would ui4? ? to duplicate such as he thought best fit | his purpose. In thi., however, be .owel uiaae i -lip, for wo ?n4 ' broker, wilh whom be i? , uir | detected him on twoortbree c ing note, which he dtaeorer^l U.

Price?Taaaa Caau PoeTwaaYaas who act aaageata will keallowed a commlaalon of twenty per oeat the culprit into the band* of the law la a uaee tion which he will hare some difficulty in an swering to the sataifaction of the public Another broker, holding a note which he sua" pected to be a forgery, went to the firm pur porting to iaiue it, and though it war hat a clumsy imitation of the genuine note, the party, without looking at it. and by merely referring to the bill book, declared it to be all light Is it any wonder that with auch a 1 ote way of doing business frauda would be perpetrated ' The only wonder ia that they are not much more nameroua. The mnnner in which Huntington a opera tiona were brought to light waa no leaa curioua than the operations themselves. and proved him, after aJl, to be rather careless and clum sy for a aucceaaful practitioner. Among a parcel ut notes which he gave to Belden A Co., collateral security, in the q?u&1 id ad ner, was out of Messrs Phelps, Dodge A Co , for over $5,000. which note waa then on it* isco over doe. That fact attracted attention, and on inquiry being made it waa pronounced a t -rgery And even then Hantington would not have been brought to justice, but would have been allowed to go on ad trnfimium, were it not tor the firmness and determination ,-f Mr Dodge and hie partner, Mr. Stokes. They ?"Ught out officer Bowyer, and obtained his advice ar*J arsistanoe in the matter; and although efforts wC?? made to ahield Hunting, ton from the conaequOcea of hia acta they proved futile lie waa arreted and held to tail in $20 000. The very man o2 whom he attempted to pawn the counterfeit (Mr Bel* den) become hia surety. Huntington ha* previous to hia arreat procured $24,000 in gold, on hia own certified check, and this sum he lodged in Belden'a handa aa aecurity, to induce him to beoome hia bail But next day other evidences of forgeries came in. and be waa re arrested Belden then procured the cancellation of hia bail, and it is aaid retaina the $21,000 Another curioua feature in the transactions is, that although the total amount of forgeries already ascertained ia 1^46 110 40, n<> peraeaa can be found to acknowledge that he baa been victimized. It ie the opinion of experienced brokers that none of the forged paper waa put upon the market, (in fact it waa too clumsily imitated for that purpoae,) but it ia all in the haads of the banks and brokers with whom ho did business He probably, however, did not raise more than $300 000 on it. We un dersland that a cashier of one of the banks wa* in the habit of making Huntington ad vances out of the drawer on thia forged paper, receiving a large discount for it, and w^a for tunate to escape loss ; and that on hearing o; Huntington a arreat, he went to tha President of the bank, gave in hia resignation, told what be bad been doing, acknowledged that Le had made large profits thereby, and aaid that he thought it his duty to let tbem know how easily they might be cheated in tais way. And now Huntington ia in the Tombs H ia trial will make work for the lawyera, and at of public attention probably be a nice legal point whether th? lodging the.-e note* as collateral security is tantamount to uttering them. The penalty for each offence may bo seven years in the j i-tato prison, and if convicted on all, be ia r? quireu r" live aa old aa Parr to aerve out hia term In tli? meantime he eeema to be quite iadifferent to hia ^nation. When Officer Bowyef 'oformed him that he came to arrest him, he ooolly walked to the mantelpiece, took up a match, lit the cigar which be had in hia mouth, and walaM out with the officer in apparent unconcern ^** cell at the Toombs is richly carpeted and fur nished Hia wife s carriage drives down daily, aud her care provides him with aumptuoua fare. He has hia champagne and hia Havaa a*, and don t seem to let the degradation of hia position weigh upon hia apirits Aa an in stance of hia extravagance, even now, it ia aaid that after dining a day or two ago. he sent up to Thompson a for fruit, and paid as high a? five dollars for five pears. it will le naked what haa become of the proceeds of theso extensive forgeries ? We t.ave given an inkling of the extravsgance of thi* man, which sufficiently indicates his char acter in that respect, and we have no doubt that within the last two yeara he haa been able to squander all the money th it he has raised by the means we have described He owned two h .uses in Twenty-second street, c-.ating probably aome $26,000 These were furnished regardleas of expense In one of them, he reaided with hia family ; in the other, not a^block distant, he maintained in grand atyle a lady of beauty and aocomplieh ments, who was not hia wedded wife He was fond of showy equipages and fine horses, and outshone all his competitors in that line. It was usual to ace hia lady driving two in hand, and himself driving a similar team, side by side He kept open house for all hia "rienda, and gave them the use of his wkole >?tablisbment .le rarely dined at home but generally at some of the fashionable reetau rants, with some fashionable ladies. At the watering places hia lady outshone all others in the splendor of her diamonds. It is said that on the very day of his arrest she had sent to his clfice, from Niagara or Saratoga, a box containing SSO.OOU worth of jewelry. Her brother took it in charge, and the officers have not since been able to get at it. We re ceived a communication the other day stating that he had recently bought at Tiffany A Co'a a piece of jewelry at the price of $1 600 for preset tatijn to u lady. Mr Tiffany, however, a lys that thia and other similar ataieinenta are exaggerated. With such laviah expenditures as these ex travagant tastes and habits imply, it need not bo wondered what became of the proceeds of the forgeries Huntington, like many other people in New York, was determined to live like a prince? no matter who ahould eventually have to feot the bill. Even now, when the crash that waa expected haa come, and when he can reason* ably lo?>k for no other fate than that of a fel on, be dora not lose hia recklessness, his in* difference He eats hia fine dinners and drinks hia costly wines in hia little call in the Tombs, with apparently as much gusto a* when he played the part of ^ratnJ teimeur in 1 wenty aecond street; and even there, the calamity that has befallen the household doea not seem to press heavily upon them There ia the same " sound of revelry by night n in the times when he was flourishing in Wall street, but the reaction cannot fail to come alter the giddy excitement of euch ? ,if*- It is sad to contemplate the end of auch a brief career ot dissipation. The wealth which hia wife sup posed perhaps to be inexhauatible, will not s*vo him from the degradation of a convict's life. A young man ot good addresa and plea sing manners, he might have lived a life of usefulness, and houestly became wealthy, as ho desired; but he could not r?ei*t th* temptation of getting rich in a hurry and the end will be a miserable existence in Sing Sing prison.
