Lancaster, Ohio, Sept 6
A person by the name of Abraham Kinney, who was in 1817 sentenced to the penitentiary for 10 years, from Belmont county, for passing counterfeit money, and who was a few months since pardoned by the governor, on Wednesday, the 29th ult., purchased a horse of an honest German in the edge of Pickaway county, and paid him in counterfeit money, so managing as to get twenty dollars in Lancaster paper in exchange. On Thursday morning, the German discovered the fraud, came in pursuit of Kinney, and arrived in Lancaster about 8 o'clock in the morning. On enquiry being made, it was ascertained that he had taken breakfast in town, and had been gone but a short time. A party well mounted immediately pursued him and fortunately falling upon his route, overtook him about 10 miles from town, on the road to Marietta; when overtaken he drew from his pocket and attempted to conceal a small bundle, which however was secured. This bundle, together with his pocket book was found to contain 951 dollars of counterfeit paper, among which were:  $190 Farmers Bank of Bucks county, 10's - poorly executed, precisely similar to those taken from the company in the winter of 1819 - Eagle.
