The Public are cautioned to
beware of counterfeited Five Dollar Bills of
the Bank of the United States, and Twenty \
Dollar Bills of the Bank of North America,

within a few days jhaft ; they are a good ge

be diftingui/hed by the following

\ ALL that have appeared hav? the letter F.
for their Alphabetical Mark.
| The Texture of the Paper is thicker and
whiter and it takes the ink more freely than
s the genuine paper.
, The O. in the word Company is smaller
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.
fiderably above the range of the whole word,
s In tht word United the letters are narrow.

than the i.

c in themargin particularjy is much coarlcr and
° appears darker than in the true bills; Some
h at the counterfeits bear date in J 791 —Where-

)0 Tl>ey are printed on a paper nearly similar
;G to that of the counterfeit Five Doilai Notes
>0 above described ; the engraving is exe
ucted, and they approach neater to the ap
'° pearance of the genuine bills.
o The fine ruled lines through the word Twen-

Other counterfeit bills
of the Bank of the United States have appeared
in circulation.
The denomination is of TWENTY DOL

They may be diftinguiflied from the genu

The paper of the counterfeits is of a more
tend r texture and glofley fur face than the
genuine, and there is no water mark in them.
Ttee letter C. in the word Cashier, in the
true bills is ftrorigly marked, whereas in the
counterfeits, the whole letter is a fine hair
itroke, evidently in an unfinifhed state. The
letter a in the word demand, is badly formed
and the whole word ill done, and there is no
comma at the end of it, as there is in the
genuine bills.
The marginal device, is much daiker in
the falfe, than in the genuine bills owing to
the shade strokes being coarferj much nearer

THE grand principle df Equality, if right
ly underwood, is the only balis on wjiich
univerfa! justice, sacred order', and perfect
freedom, can be firmly built, and permanent
ly secured. The view of it exhibited in this
elTay, at the fame time that it reprelfes the
itrfojeiice of aflice, the tyranny ofpride, a-<>d
the outrages of oppreftTon ; confirm®, in the
mpft forcible manner, the neceiHty of subor
dination, and the just demands of lawful au
thority. So far indeed, from loosening the 41
bands of society, that it maintains inviolate,
every natural and every civil diftinftion,
draws more clol'ely every social tie, unites in
one harmonious and justly proportioned sys
tem, and brings men together on the even
ground of the inherent rights of human na
ture, of reciprocal obligation,-and of a com
mon relation to the community.
