The comissioners then proceeded to open the remaining seven boxes. They presented the same contents precisely, with a single exception, in which the substratum was window-glass broken in small pieces. The teller, as well as A. F. Fitch, the stockholder above mentioned, disclaimed all knowledge of the transaction. How, when, or by whom this fraud had been perpetrated they could not tell. The teller stated that the boxes had been in the bank for some time past, but whether the contents or any part of the same had been there within the last twenty-four hours they did not know and could not swear. Immediately on the discovery of this fraud the teller and Mr. Fitch went into an adjoining apartment, and after a little consultation produced from under a bedstead two boxes, one without a lid and apparently full of coin, the other with half a lid and about half full. These they stated to be the property of the said Bank of Jackson. The commissioners counted the coin in the several boxes above mentioned, and found the contents to be as follows:
$205 43
137 50 261 00
242 25
294 00
243 00
279 50
248 50
603 00
671 50
723 50
Total amount of coin in bank,
