The Public are cautioned to
b&ware of counterfeited Five Dollar Bills of
the Bank of the United States, and Twenty
Dollar Bills of the Bank of North America,
J'e-vtral of "which have appeared in circulation
•within a fe<w days past ; they are a good ge
neral imitation of the genuine Bills, but may
be dijtbiguijhed by the following
Frve Dollar Bills of the Bank of the
United States.
ALL thai have appeared have the letter F.
for tueir Alphabetical Mark.
The Texture oi' the Paper is thicker and
whiter and it takes the ink more ficely than
the genuine paper.
The O. m the word Company is smaller
than the M. and other letters ot that word,
io that a line extended from the top of the O,
to touoh the top of the M. wouldtxtend con

ALL that have appeared have ihe letter

They are printed on a paper nearly similar
to that of the cuuuterfeit Five Dollai Notes
above defci ibed ; the engraving is beite* exe

The fine ruled lines through ihe woid Twen

From Correspondents•
France is now regenerating her marine—it
is expected that in one year from this, Hie
French navy will confilt of upwards of 100
fail of the line. Should this country enter ill
to the war, we may expert the most power
ful succours from our ally. At leail a fleet
of 30 fail of the line, and 10,000 veteraji
troops. Such a force will be absolutely neceT
fary to effedtuate the reduction of Canada
a measure which every diclate of policy
will urge as eligible. This plan will keep
the United States at a proper remove from
the vortex of European pplitics !
There is plenary evidence daily laid be
fore the public, to ftiew that all tli-e vexa
tions, spoliations, and depredations of the
British cruiffrs on the commerce of this
Country, are the most plcafing, grateful
and consoling circumstances to a certain
set of politicians, that could possibly have
occurred at this junflure. Under tlic
guise of ineafurps to affeit and support the
rights, dignity and independence of the U
nited States, the most deadly ftrnkes ar.e
aimed at the existence of the Constitution
—the credit—the union, and the internal
peace of the Country. Measures of real
energy in coiijundtion with those which
common sense, and common prudence
would didlate, and which the sober reflec*
tions of every ieal Republican must ap
prove, meet the rnoft pointed and invete
rate opposition. The tru« meaning of
tins condud is* —that except internal con
vulsions should fuccetd the years of peace
and prosperity which we have enjoyed un
der the auspices of the genferaj govern
ment, another opportunity for fpecate
tion will be foreclofed—and the people
will continue to think, that those who
have been perpetually telling them that
they are governed by rogues and villains^
Congress of the United States.
House of Reprefentativas
Substance of the remarks made by Mr.
Giles on Mr. Dayton's resolution for
the fequeft ration of all debts due to
the British fubjedts.
( Concluded.)
Mr. Giles fai'd, he knew nothing of the
change of the minijtry—the principle was
unknown here. The people here were
their own governors. It was immaterial
to them, who the minister was. Even in
the coun try where the people were lefa
fortunate;where ministers govern:a change
of ministers never produced any solid ad
vantage to the nation—lt was iriefefy an
expedient of the moment to imother a po
pular clamor. But even proceeding upon
the gentleman's hypothecs, whifh Mr.
G. thought wholly inadmilEble, whether
a passive submission by foreigner to the a
■vancious regulations of a minister, be the
most likely mean to render him unpopular
at home I—On the other hand, whether
if was not the most effectual mean of pre
serving his popularity and of keeping him
in office ? He prefumcd the people at
home, would never complain of injuries
abroad, if those who sustained them refuf
-63 to complain. It is but by resistance
and throwing the burthen upon the peo
ple orf England tliat they can be brought
to complain.
But in cases of such extremities as the
present all appeals to the people of Eng
land are futile and degrading. Our only
rcfource Jbould be in our own exert'wns.
They would be abundantly fufficient if
we could be brought to believe it.
Mr. G. remarked, that the people ol
Ireland had lately afforded an inftrudtive
leflbn upon this point. They had arms
in their hands for the purpose of asserting
their rights; under th,e idea of acquies
cence and submission, they had surren
dered them to the government; perhaps
under the expectation of a change of mi
nistry. Did this ait of submission ren
