The Public are cautioned to
beware of counterfeited Fine Dollar Bilt'3 of
the Bank of the United States, and Twenty
Dollar Bills of the Bank of North America,
feiieral of which have appeared in circulation
within a few days pajl; they are A good ge
neral imitation of the genuine Bills, but may
be diflinguifhed by the following
Five Dollar Bills of the Batik of the
ALL that have appeared have 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 the word Company is smaller
i than the M. and other letters of that word,
so that a line extended from the top of the O,
to touch the top of the M would extend con-
GdeiaMy above the range of the whole word.
In the word United the letters are narrow!
i erand closer together than the reft of tlj£ bill
The i and fin the word promise afe not
parallel, the yinclining much more forward
than the i.
The engraving is badly executed,the stroke*
of all the Letters are stronger and tl * devi< e
in the margin particularly isrrnich coarser and
appears darker than in the true bills. Some
ef the counterfeits bear dare in 1791 —Where-
as toe Bank was not in operation till Decem

that year. ' JjtiL
Twenty Dollar Bills of the Bank of North
ALL that have appeared have the letter
B. tor their alphabetical mark.
They are printed on a paper nearly similar
to that of the couuterfeit Five Dollar Notes
above described ; the engraving is oettet exe
ucted, and they approach nearer to the ap
pearance cf the genuine bills.
Theifi/ie ruled lines through the word Twen
ty, in the body of the bill, are tnnumbe' thir

The Signature J. Nixon, has the appear
ance of being written with lamp-black and.
oil, and differs from the other inks used in
printing the bills and the cafliier's lignature.
It is supposed these forgeries were committed
in feme of the Southern States, as all the coun

thence, and two persons have been apprehend

Mr. (Giles's reply to Mr. W. Smith's ob
servations on the palling' of the naval
armament bill. -
Believing this principle to be a just one,
he would apply it to the exifling state of
things between the United States and G.
Britain. Almost at soon as Great Bri
tain had taken part in the iniquitous war
against France, the executive of the United
States manifefted their regard for peacf,
by proclaiming their existing state of neu
trality, and recommending to theii citi
zens not only the observance of neutrality,
but of impartial neutrality. Although the
partiality of the American people for the
cause of France, was well known, altho'
at that moment their affe&ions for the
French 1 nation were addrefled by the most
honorable and powerful considerations that
ever existed between two nations. The
peculiar similarity between the willing
French cause, and that which had just
given birth to American liberty and inde
pendence; the material agency which the
French nation had exerted in bringing
about that event: and the existing prin
ciples of government here, the pfoduft
of the revolution, which are the great
object of attack by the combination against
A pure and laudable regard for peace,
and a destination of war however, had o
vercome all these sensations, and produced
a neutrality which he believed on the part
of the United States had been rigidly ob
served, at least, he was Jure, that such
was the intention of government. In
this state ef things Great Britain com
menced an attack upon this state of neu
trality, which it was certainly her interefl
to preserve, and which (he ought to have
deemed a favor to obtein. Great Britain
continued to keep pofTeffion of polls upon
the acknowledged territory of the Unit
ed States, to carry on a contraband trade
with our savage enemy. She shortly after
our proclaimed neutrality proceeded to in
terrupt or laAiful trade with our allies.
She fuzed, condemned and fanftioned the
complete transfer of the property of Ameri
can citizens to her oivil fubjeds ; and as if
there could be no limits to her idiquity &
resentment, (lie has contrived to open up
on our eastern frontiers, a barbarous ene
my to aid in making depredations uppn
These ass constitute injuries which a
mount to war, and they are infinitely ag
gravated, both by the perfidy which at
tended the execution of some of thein :
and the total want of provocation, for the
commiflion of any of them.
