There was also an entry of a specie certificate from H. H. Brown & Co., Detroit, for $10,000. The date of this entry had been also the 5th November. This date had been erased and a new date substituted. The language of the entry had also been altered, but being written over the original words could not be traced. This certifi cate of deposit was not to be found, and was presumed to be in the hands of the absent cashier. The teller and Mr. Fitch, one of the stock-holders; who was present during the examination, were of the opinion that this certificate was the first installment of specie paid in. The commissioners proceeded to an examination of the specie in the bank. Gold coin was exhibited loose in a drawer, which, being counted amounted to the sum of $1,037.78; about $150 in loose silver was also counted. Beneath the counter of the bank nine boxes were pointed out-by the teller as containing $1,000 each. The teller selected one of these boxes and opened it. This was examined and appeared to be a full box of American half-dollars. One of the commissioners then selected a box which he opened and found to contain a superficies only of silver, the remaining portion consisted of lead and ten-penny nails.
