Not content with these lines'of cir cumvejiation, the Danish engineers hive crowred bo<h scarp and counterscarp of the eathwoiks with palisades crested with a tw ist line of sharp swords, an expedient borrowed apparently from the French defences of the breath at Badajos. Both within and without the works aie fixed planks studded with long nails, the points upwards, and concealed by a I ght covering of earth. We must add to these amenities tV.e mires that underlie all the assail able parts. Coukterfbitah (iTkkaschv Notes ?There are S-IOO Treasury notes now in circulation. On the counterle't the number of the note k larirer and less brilliant in color than the ginuii.e. The imprint of the American Bank Mote < cmpany at the top is also larger, the donMe rule running lrom it is heavier, and th* terminal enrve twice as large, while there is a diagonal shading at the joint of the imprint w ith the rule, which d?es not appear in the genuine. On the right end of the back of th^ bill the "100" in the circles are inverted thus : ?Hiil." In the genuine the " 100" in the circles on the left end reads thus : ??001;" in the coun terfeit they are thus : "100." The outside circle of the 100 in the lower leit corner of the genuine touches the lower border: in the counterfeit it does not come within one sixteenth of an inch. The paper is also heavier and somewhat grea?y in the counterfeit, and there are other slight differences, but the spurious bill is so well executed that several Wall street brokers ex changed it without hesitation. Trouble in Cuixa?Serious Riot and Atiick or- Missionaries.?A letter dated Fuh Chiu, China, Jan. *22, which we find published in the Times of India, gives an account of some se rious difficulties which had jas' occurred in that city. The trouble originated in the natives n aking noisy demonstrations against the mis sionaries by interrupting the religious services. Some of those guilty of these outrages were am-sted at the instance of the missionaries, and the natives, excited at this action, attacked a native missionary and maltreated him out rageously. Afterward they attacked the chapel of the Methodist Mission, then thatof the Epi* copal Mission, andatterward thatof the Amer ican Board. No injnry seems to hiYe been done to the persons of the foreign missionaries, although the wives of the native missionaries were outraged. At last accounts quiet bad been restored, and the foreign Consuls had taken measures to bring the offenders to justice. Ope k img of th* Great Fair in Nbw York.
