Syllabus

The first count in an indictment containing three counts charged the accused with "having counterfeit coin in his possession, with intent to defraud certain persons to this grand inquest unknown." The jury found him "guilty in the first count for having in possession counterfeit minor coin. Not guilty as to second and third counts." Held that the verdict was a general verdict of guilty under the first count, and that the word attached did not qualify the conclusion of guilt.
