THIS case was certified from the circuit court of the district of Georgia, the opinions of the Judges of that court being opposed upon a motion in arrest of judgment, upon a verdict of guilty on the following indictment, viz. 'The jurors,' &c. 'upon their oath present that Zebulon Cantril late,' &c. on the 1st of January, 1806, 'with force and arms, at the house of one William Gibson, in the town of St. Mary's,' &c. 'a certain false, forged and counterfeit paper, partly written and partly printed, purporting to be a bank bill of the United States for ten dollars, signed by Thomas Willing, president, and G. Simpson, cashier, dated at Philadelphia the second day of September, one thousand eight hundred and four, payable on demand to R. Beatty or bearer, with force and arms, did feloniously utter and publish as a true bank bill of the United States, with intent to defraud the said William Gibson, and which said false, forged and counterfeit bill, partly written and partly printed, is in the words, figures and letters following, to wit:' (here the bill was inserted:) 'He the said Zebulon Cantril' 'at the said time of uttering and publishing the said false, forged, and counterfeit bill, partly written and partly printed, there by him in form aforesaid, well knowing the same so by him uttered and published to be false, forged and counterfeited, against the form of the statute in that case made and provided, and against the peace and dignity of the United States.' The reasons assigned in arrest of judgment were, 1. That the indictment is insufficient and repugnant, inasmuch as it charges the prisoner with having uttered and published as true, a certain false, forged, and counterfeit paper, partly written and partly printed, purporting to be a bank bill of the United States for ten dollars, signed by Thomas Willing, president, and G. Simpson, cashier, &c.
