Better Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
• • - rl HE subscriber would respectfully inform his cus
miners and the public generally, that notwithstad
. ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has still on hand the lar
gest and triost varied assortrr.ent of elegant CLO
THING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast off garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter of the establishments in which they arc invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offal, of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers should be on their guard a
gninet these impositions, and they may rely on. the fact
thatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made in this city, by competeatwork
rnen, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" front the shreds and patches of
eastern slop shops. It will always be his endeavor to
tnahatain. the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at price, below those of
.' l4l . 4 orHe Wonld again return his thanks to his friends and
the public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
upon his establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantage to deal with him, he would
repeat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase

part from education. His constant declarations of that
delicacy of his sentiments, and of the digintereatednesa
of his services, though true in the main, were in a taste
that higher associations in youth would probably have
corrected. There was a loftiness of feeling about him,
