The rejiort then goes on to say that the drnmis^al of the Offcndlt g clerk bad previously been determined upou. Mr. tlAHituit e stated that Galmiclie had made applica tion to the liaggitga muster at Castle Garden, who de livered him his trunks, when the former asserted he missed Mjndr) goods, such as shirt#, gold ornament*, fowling pieces, and the like. The baggage master aefcod him to open the trunks, which he refused to do, and there was no proof that the goods had been stolen as alleged, beyond GalmicUo's own word. Mr. Caxkioax admitted that the charges of robbery were quite frequent, but did not think they amounted to much. The fact was, the railroad companies in the Gar den were responsible for the baggage, not the Commis siooera, as they apj* inted all the officers who had charge of it. The report of the committoe was accepted and the mat ter drop[ fd. Mr. trims oflerod the following, which win adopted: ?

Vesterday Sergeant Brown and officer Keefe, of the Chief's office, succeeded in making a vary important ar rent and i eiznre of about $36,000 or $40,000 in counterfeit billw on tlie Union Bank of Frovideoce, Rhode Island, and the Union Bank of SwitnUm Falls, Vermont. On Tuoeday morning the a bore named ohcerd received some infor mation regarding the rec idenre o( a forger named J. 9. Cowaden. Plant) were laid for bla arrest, and yesterday they were successfully carried into operation. The police repaired to the third Mory of No. 82 Duane street, where Cowsden bad an office for carrying on the buslnees. Without much ceremony they opened the door and se cured their man. On searching the premises counterfeit bills sufficient to till a bushel basket were discovered so creted in various parts of tho room. A printing press, a couple of rollers, a number of dies, stamps, and otha articles necessary for counterfeiting were also seized. The contraband property, togothcr with the prisonor were Immediately taken to the Chiefs otllce in the Turk Here Cowsden was committed to prison for examination by Justice Breunan. Tlie counterfeit upon tho Union Bauk of Providence, R. I., is a beuuutul s|>ecimen ol engraving . The bill is un like the genuine in vignette. but it was meant by the engraver to represent a uew issue, as the date of the till tug up is March, 1856. The signatures ot the President and Cashier are exceedingly well executed, and aro cal culated to deceive most persons. The following n a fxc timilr of this uew counterfeit: ? ^Tnr Puesicknt, TUB UNION HANK DiuccroKS A Co. of^ 5ca'??v.-.f ft 1 VlOKTTB.

Only $360 of the above counterfeit was discovered, showing evidently that it had just been prepared for cir culation. and had not yet been pushed into the market to any extent. The counterfeit on the Union Bank of Swan ton falls, Vermont, is a close imitation of the above coun terfeit, but it was in an unfinished state. The *amo plnte was evidently used tor both counterfeits. About seven or eight thousand of those billd. nuking an aggregate of nearly $40,000, was seized by the police. Tlie " stuff" larked a good deal ot thnsh. and would have linu to have gone through a finisher's hands before any attempts to put it into circulation were made. But very few of the counterfeits on tba Union llauk ol Providence were put into circulation. The des sent of the police was, therefore, a lucky occurrence for any number of shop keepers and green grocery men. In a few days the city and the surrounding suburb! w ould be flooded with the trash, and many persons would be mado to sutler in con sequence, but fortunately for the public the arrest of the alleged lorger and the teizure of all his spurious bills arid counterfeiting apparatus has prevented such a heavy fraud being committed. Cowsden, it is supposed, lias accomplices in the busi ness, tor, in making a clean coufcsglou of his guilt, he kb; s tliut lie has been In the habit of manufacturing counterfeit bills for over a year past, and al ways had reudy sale for them at bo rate or ten and fifteen cents each. The officers are now endcavorlag to ferret out a person keep ing an office somewhere in Nassau street, who has been in the habit of finishing bills for Cowsden. The tat ter, it ap| ears, did the rough work, while the former put the finishing stroke to the article. A ail of plate, for altering counterfeits from one bar k to another was also discovered, aud seized upon. The officer - in tais esse are entitled to moeh credit lor the successful man ner m which they a.eompllshed no ordinary ta-k. Cowsden is a Western man, hailing trom Ohto.

According to his own conic- slos, he mast have been the means of putting an enormous quantity of counterfeit bills into circulation in this city and through out the enlire country.

And were there no other eircum taaces in tba case, I ?hotild regard It s? my duty to hold ilie BUi? Sd for tbe action of tbe Crand Jar/. B'Jt in my opinion tbe facta tend to establish a eonspuacy to defraud t>arvte of his property. When he had been there eight or nine days, liar vie. tn a state ot mtoxl i stion, was taken lo the otltcc of Adams A Taylor, i?y llanna. ami op this occasion Mr. O'lHrnnell, who prert i uaiy worked for <iarvie, was in eompaay with litem.

I cannot regar tbesi as tolelv prwtessional acts, and do not beliern a jury Will o comder tbem. It rannot be conaWered as a mere discharge of a professional employment to draw l^apers ol such imisirtance to be executed by a man who was sleepy, stupitted, and crying from the effects o liquor. I cannot rkt myself of the belief that the private talk, the suggestion to Make a will, and drawing tbe pa pers without consultation with or Instruction* from Garvie, ibe permitting a man in bl* condition to execatesncb instruments, snd the reqnsets of Adaass to O'ltonnell, at f-b-n Cove, to aide with llanna. are all Inconsistent with the idee of mere professional act*. The accused has not ottered or produced any evidence to prove that the part that he acted tn the premises was done in good faith or hoaeet motive*, or that be baa given any value or constdcraUea for tbe transfer of the above mentioned property to htm, and which he *UII claims, and refuse* tn give back to i.arvie. I shall therefore bold the prhoner to bell to answer and send the panara to the District Attorncv to be laid Wore Ibe Grand Jury for their action I do not at i 'resent consider It necessary for me to lakf any furtber action In ibe matter. 1 hare only roaatdered the subject f ball as to the amount sines the prisoner was Srat in oght before me.

A most exciting trotting match for ?1,0.'X>, p. p., came off on Tuesday afternoon, between b. m. Rose of Wadh uifcton and b. m. Lady Moscow, mile beats, best ibree ia Ave, in harness . The desire to witness a contest between these two nags called out a large attendance. Ro.se of Washington ha* trotted but sir raced previous to the present one ? twite with Mr. Nichols' stallion American Eagle, winning both races; once with Ethan Allot, which she lost; then with a pacer, winning easy; then half mile heats with Bo lie of Saratoga, which site won in good time; and lastly with Blue Morgan, in wUiuh race she was again victorious. Her owner has beeu very careful with her, and did not seem over anxious to f?rce her into engagements, rather waiting for what he considered "sure things." This summer, however, he broke loose and matched Rose in fite rates? two with Lady Moscow, and three with Chicago Jack, for $ 1,000 aside. Although a winner on Tuesday afternoon, we did not think ho? per farmances reached the high expectations formed of her by her backers, and that if she i3 A No. 1, she has yet to show it. Her second heat was a very ordinary one, and those who bad been laying tbo heavy odds on her were very muc'o inclined to " hedge," or buy off at a large per centage. lady Moscow is well known to "the sporting world. Her performances years ago with Lady Suffolk and Lady Sutton have bo?u chronicled ail over the land; her re peated milo heats in 2:30 and 2:31, aud her two miles ia 6.04, will never be forgotten. She was off the turf for a time ? having niet with an accident ? but last summer she again made her appearance, and in a very good race de fuutcd I.ady Franklin and Chicago Jack over the Union Course, in 2:37 ? 2:37 ? 2:3S. This summer, having fallen into n? w bands, she again makes her appearance like an old and favorite aetor, and hosts of admirers turn out to witness her performances. She was not hersolf, how ever, on Tuesday, and did not make the fin? points her Ir lends expected to witness. For weeks previous to the day of the race, in all her private trials she had ex hibited tpecd tar ahead of the fine displays of her youth ful days, which led her owner to believe her invincible, and he backed her largely for her contests W:th Rose of Washington. When brought on the track, however, Tor the r ue, it was evident that she wai restive and sore; would break up at a three minute gait, aud appeared to have r.o iuciiuation to itake an eilort to trot. Mr. Pea body, the ptrs-on having her in liand, tried all his arts to quiet her, without avail, and thou pulsed her over to S. McLaughlin, her former driver. She seemed more at rase In b..< bands, and the race went on. The betting in the early part of the day was about eft ii ; but as the scvriug progressed, aud the condition and disposition of Moscow were discovered, the odds on Rofc o! Washington ran up to one hundred to twenty ilve The track was heavy from the rain of the moru tog and very quick time was not looked for. Fiift Htai.-lA.dy Moscow won the pole.
