We learn from the Red Hook Journal that Mr. Adam Fingar
, a resident of this County, made a note endorsed by his son for $700, payable one day after date, and passed the same to to First National Bank of Redhook,- promising to take it up the next day, either with money, or, if he wanted more time on it, to give a new note endorsed by his brother, German Fingar
Pursuant to the understanding, the two Fingars, Adam and German, appeared at the Bank on the 22d, and requested to make the new note spoken of. While the Cashier was preparing the new note, Adam Fingar fraudulently seized the note for $700, and they then abruptly left the Bank.
A warrant was issued by Justice Paulmler on complaint of J.S. Crouse, Cashier, for his arrest. - The Daily Register
