The Public are cautioned to
beware of counterfeited Five Dollar Bills oj
the Bank of the United States, and Twenty
Dollar Bills of the Bank of North America,
several of wnich have appeared in circulation
'within a few days pajl; they are a good ge
\ neral imitation of the genuine Bills, but may
be dijlinguijhed by the following
T marks.
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
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_ _

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
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.

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

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

ground of the inherent l ights of human na
