940. SARAH REMMINGTON was indicted for a misdemeanor .

MARIA READ . I am the daughter of Thomas Bassett Read, shoemaker, Beach-street. The prisoner came into my fathers shop about eleven o'clock on Saturday night to purchase a pair of shoes at four shillings and sixpence; she tendered me a dollar, I gave it to my father.

THOMAS BASSETT READ. I am the father of the last witness. My daughter shewed me the dollar, and the prisoner said, if you dislike it I have another; she gave it me; I marked them both before I gave them to the constable. I considered them as bad.

JAMES FOWLER . I am a constable. I received the two dollars of Mr. Read. These are the two dollars, I marked them.

EDMUND HOMERSHAM . I am a teller at the bank. These two dollars are counterfeit, they are not silver.

Prisoner's Defence. I received the two dollars for good; I did not know they were bad until Mr. Read told me.
