Five Dollar Bills of the Bank of the United States. ALL that have appeared liavz the letter F. For their Alphabetical Mark- The Texture of the Paper is thicker and whiter and it takes the ink more freely than the genuine paper. „ . The O. in ihe word Company is smaller than theM. and other letters of that word, to that a line extended from the top of the , to touch the top of the JVL would extend eon fiderably above the range ot the whole word. In the word United the letters are narrow erand closer together than the reft of the bill The iand /in the word promise are not parallel, the '/inclining much more lorward than the i. The engraving is badly executed,the strokes of all the Letters are stronger and the devi. e in themargin particularly ismuch coarler and appears darker than in the true bills. Some ot the counterfeits bear date in 1791 Where as the Bank was not in operation till Decern ber, and no five dollar bills were iflueu in ihat year. Twenty Dollar Bills of the Bank of North America. ALL that have appeared the letter B tor their alphabetical mark. They are printed 011 a paper nearly similar to that of the Five Dollar Notes above described ; the engraving is beUe. exe ucted, and they approach ncaier to the ap pearance of the genuine bills. The fine ruled lines through the word lu.cn (l, in the body of the bill, are in number th teen in the genuine b:lls, and but twelve in the counterfeits. The word Company is much like the lame word in the Five Dollar Bills as described a bove, the 0 being less than them, and others following. . , ~ , There is no stroke to the t mthe word North whereas in the genuine hills the stroke is well defined. . The letters ent in the word Twenty, to tne left hand at the bottom, do not come down tp the line, but are so cut as an irregular appearance to the word, the ifw and the;' go ine below them. The fignatute J Nixon, has the appear ance ol being written with lamb-black aoii oil, and differs Irom other inks used in printing the bills and the cafhiei's fignatnre. It is luppoled thele forgeries were committed in some of the Southern State*, a* ail Ihe coun terlcns that hove appealed, have come irom thence, and two perloiis have been appiehend ed in Virginia, on suspicion ol being ihe author of them. _ _ 4_ _ The icward of ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS will he paid to any Perlon or Perlon* wholhail difcovei and prpfecute to convittion the ieveial otFeuders ot the following descriptions or any ot them, viz. The pei Ton or pcrfons, who manufactured the paper on which the Bills are primed. The perion or petfons, who engraved the plates. The printer or printers, of the bills. Lvei y per (on who has attcd as a principal in any other wav, in the counterfeiting and utter ing (lit said bills. Philadelphia, March 28, 1794 April 22, 1794, Other counterfeit bills of the Bank of the United States have appeared 11 circulation. The denomination is of TWENTY DOL LARS,and the alphabetical maik is the let ter B. tutli&s 3W They may be "diftinguiftied from the genu ine by the following MARKS : The papaj of the counterfeits is of a more tend r texture aud gloffey furface than the genuine, and there is 110 water mark in them. Tlae letter C. in the word Caftiier, in the true bills is strongly marked, whereas in the counterfeits, the whole letter is a fine hair stroke, evidently in an unfinifhed state. The letter in the word demand, is badly formed and the whole word ill done, and there is 110 comma at the end of rt, as there is in the genuine bills. The marginal device, is much daiker in the falfe, tlmn in the owing to the lhade strokes being coarser, much nearer together, and consequently much more nu merous. This difference strikes the eye at-lirft ni&thtf view, The fame reward of ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS, will be paid for apprehending, & prosecuting to con vision the several above described Offenders in refpe& to this, as to the last described bills.

ProfelTor of Moral Pliilofophy, and the Law <>i Nature, and of Ecclefiallical History ; and Minister of the Engliih Church at U trerht. Temper ad communem utilitatem af fep»Rdum. ; Cicero. Thi Firji American Edition. THE grand principle of Equality, if right ly understood, is the only bafts on which universal justice. lac red order, and perfect freedom, can be firmly built, and permanent ly feeured. The view of it exhibited in this eflfay, at the fame time that it repreiTes the infolenceof office, the tyranny of p .de, and the outrages of opjireflfon ; confirm#, in the riioft forcible manner, the neceflity of subor dination, and the just demands of law ful au thority. So far indeed, from loosening the bands of ibciety, that it maintains inviolate, every natural and every civil diftinftion, draws more clo'ely every social tie, unites in one harmonious and justly proportioned fyf rem, and brings men together on the even ground of the inherent l ights of human na ture, of reciprocal obli ation, and of a conl* moil relation to the community, " | March 18.
