THE Committee for Financial Purposes, give notice that the supply of larger Notes yet received being exhausted, attendance will be given on Tuesday next the 19th instant, from nine till two o'clock, at the house of Mr. JOSEPH BEETE, jun. in Columbia-District, for the exchange of those of one and two Joes only.
The Committee are in hourly expectation of the arrival of the rest of the Notes from England, which have been delayed beyond their calculation. Due notice will be given, as soon as they can be prepared, of the time for exchanging all those remaining, as it will also at a future period of the time, when the old Notes will no longer be considered as a tender. - But though it is on many accounts the wish of the Committee to withdraw the old notes from circulation, as soon as can be done with perfect convenience to the public, it is never the intention of Government to take advantage of the negligence or ignorance of any one, by refusing to exchange any old note that may remain out at any future period whatever.
George-Town, January 16.
