An Important Aeei?t -Yesterday, Detective Officer J M Buaber wai called upon by a c!'y banking house to arrest a person named Charles Murray . wto bad succeeded In obtaining from them fi.WXi United States money, for twenty counterfeit #'00 notes upon the Alleghany Banc of Pennsylvania.

He 1* a fine-looking fellow, light complexloned, and about 34 year* of age. His positive silence would seem to Indicate a knowledge of what he was about; and he seemed determined not to fflve any clue that would Involve himself more, or lead to the detection of other*. It stems that a number of those notes hive been Pissed upou persons at the North, especially In hiladelpbla; and It Is not to be wondered at, as the counterfeit Is admirably executed, and the detectors give no description of any counterfeits upon the b ink over the d nomination of So. Probably the operation is a slmul'aneous Issue in several large cltlee, from tome counterfeiting establishment 'ar^elyengaged In the business Murray ks supposed to come from New Yoik.
