Waters, I of our city, a check (see card of Mr. Waters) on I the Farmers1 and Mechanics'Bank, forffiS. It I seems from the following notice, which we take I from tbe Hagerstown Herald, that he has also I been using the same gentleman's name in that 1 quarter: | " A r'HARrKH ?Some time in the month of No- I veniber last, a man of very genteel dre.'-s and i>>- I lite manners, presented a forged order fiom Mr. I Benjamin Rowland, on* of our most extend e millers, for the sum uf SIH>, at the counter of the I llagerstown Bank, and received tbe money upon it by telling a very plausible story. The forgery was not discovered until last weelc, when Mr. R. I obtained his checks and orders from the bank, I nnd found this one among them. The ft How I represented himself to be a citizen of Lanees e county, I'a., and pretended to be on a visit to this county for the purpose of purchasing a mill, if he I could find one to suit him He had been nego- I tinting with Mr. K. for one of bis mills, and In this way succeedtd in muking his acquaintance, and ascertaining where he transacted his b*nk business. He was evidently a sharper of no mean accomplishments, and will take in others if they don't keep a keen lookout for him " The letter or order with which he succeeded in deceiving Mr. Waters, Is a very plausible one j and the signature of Mr. Rowland is so well ex ecuted as to be likely to deceive almost any one, even an expert in writing From a letter of Mr Rowland to Mr. Waters it appears that he h s quite a variety of nam-* At the Bank in Ha- I gerstown he gave his name \V. Beall. When he I visited Mr. Rowland be gave it as Thos Evans. I and in the order upou Air. Waters it is Mr. Da- I vis. It also appears that he has been traveling I extensively through the upper counties of V irgi- I nia, and in the order upon Sir Waters he repre- I sents himself as having a brother residing below Alexandria.. i The following is p.s near a description of his I persou as we have been able to gather: He is I I rather tall, near six f'-et high, tolerable light I complexion, dark sandy hair, sandy whisk>-rs, I appe trs to l?e about thirty-tlve to forty yea s of I age, rather prepossessing in his manner, w>-a~sa I dark brown cloth cap, brown overcoat, and gen- I erally wtars his coat collar turned up.

It* Ttie'Most Tbocblbsomk Cokxs.?From Doctor Scluosser*s work, on Diseases of th* Feet, we lenrn tliat the most troublesome corns are those to l<e foand between the toes an<l at the joint of the big toe?commonly called bunions; and that the Ion* interval of absenco of pain is not to leid to the idea Hint they are becoming inert; and that they will re ir-sin so, for. sooner or Inter, t? the great distress of the person who has to bear it, they will exliit-it ttieir real character.
