misd. ; having a large quantity of it, is evidence that it was procured with that intent, unless there be circumstances to show that the deft. was the maker of it. Rex v. Fuller, Id. 308.

(a) Inconvenience having arisen in the law department of his majesty's mint, from the neglect of immediate communication on the commitment of persons charged with offences relating to the coin, against whom it is wished the mint should adopt prosecutions, it is recommended that in all cases the commiting magistrate or his clerk do, without delay, transmit copies of the informations of such witnesses as are taken, together with every other particular in explanation of the evidence, to the office of the solicitor, that the same may be submitted to the Board of Mint Officers for their determination and directions, and in due course the result will be communicated.

And also in all cases where advice or assistance is required, if the same be applied for, the solicitor will afford every facility, and in many instances previous to intended commitments, such reference would save considerable additional trouble and expence to all parties concerned, but more particularly to the witnesses, who can obtain no allowance from the county.
