In the following passage,-that well known

readers., The fetter is dated Exeter,

Of this remarkable currency jn Indiana
the Lafayette journal thus speaks :
"The vignette is nigger shearing a hog,
supposed to be squealing. The president
of the bank stands near, assisting to hold
the hog: The dear people may be discov

the other side a. buzzard. He holds in
one hand the scales of justice, one side of
which is evidently yeryiightj the other is
holding" a document, his last message,
from yvhich he appears to be reading to a
crowd of disconsolate individuals below,
who refuse to be comforted.'
