Another Fight Expected in Arkansas

ST. LOUIS, April 10. – The Republican’s correspondent with Gen. Curtis says: From facts learned in camp, another battle between the Federal and Rebel armies in that direction is not at all improbable, and that within a short period.

Two hauls of counterfeits were made here yesterday, and $100,000 in bogus U. S. Treasury notes and $10,000 on the State Bank of Indiana, together will a complete set of engraver’s tools, plates, presses, &c., have been captured.  The guilty parties were also arrested.  The bills are well executed and calculated to deceive the best judges.
