remotest degree offensive to propriety or
good taste defaces these pages, and the
ablest talent is secured to make a Magazine,
which, for variety ot interest, and excellence

ward. and that every year's experience will
enable them more fully to deserve the favor
which they so gratefully acknowledge.

THF. undersigned, Laving just received the
latest Paris and New York Fashions,
would again beg leave to inform his numer
ous friends and all the world about Blooms
burg, that he is now better prepared than ev
er to accommodate any one with the neatest,
easiest and best fitting suits of Clotbes that
have been turned out lately; and not only
that, but lie will also do them up in the best
order, upon the lowest terms.
His shop is at the old stand, (too well
known 10 need luilher notice) where he may
at all limes be found, seated upon the bench
of repentance, steadily drawing out the thread
of affliction, hopeing it may in the end prove
advantageous to him and his customers. He
would also advise his friends to bear in mind
that poor, afflicted tailors must live, or they
can't be expected to work. Therefore, Wheat,
Rye, Corn, Oats, Potatoes, and with all now
and then a little CASH xvill come mighty
handy from those who are back-standing on
hte book.
Remember, gentlemen, that in all cases
" the laborer is worthy of his hire."
