While Mr. Buchanan was President, the Pottstown Bank came into existence, and out of compliment to him the notes contained his portrait. But of late the bank has received so many mutilated notes, with the words “traitor,” “Judas Iscariot,” etc., inscribed under the portrait, that it has resolved to call in all the notes bearing the likeness, and re-issue new ones. It must be done to abate a nuisance.--Boston Advertiser, July 16.
