UTTLE has received this day from New York,

Coughs, Colds and Consumptions; and is ready to sup
ply customers at wholesale or retail, at his Medical
Agency, 86 Fourth st. nor

Fr subscriber would respectfully inform his cu. ,
tourers an d the public,r2;enerally, that notwithstud
iug the unprecedented sales nt the Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has still on hand the lar
gest and most varied assortment of elegant CLO
THING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
hie store are maufactured from FRESII GOODS, pur
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
Inconsequence of the multiplication of. lop shop s i n
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 are invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, are
the mere drab 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
gainst these impositions, and they miy 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 competent work
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds Of passage" from the shreds and patches of I
eastern slop shops. It will always be his endeavor to
maintain the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
Any other establishment.
He would 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 advantaer to deal with hint, he would
repeat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase

Look at This
HE attention of those who have been somewhat
sceptical in reference to the uumerous certifi
dunes published in favor of Dr. Swavue's C om p oun d
Syrup of Wild Cherry, on account of the persons being
unicnown in this Section of the State, is respectfully di
rected to the following certificate, the writer of which
has been a (Afire° of this borough for several years, and
ill known as a gentleman of integrity and responsibility.
To the Agent, Mr. J. KIEBY.
I have used Dr. Swayne's Compound Syrup of Wild
Cherry for a Cough, with which I have been severely
of for abbot four months, and I have no hesitation
in saying that it is the most effective medicine that I
have been able to procure. It composes all uneasiness,
and agrees well with my diet,—and maintains a regular
and good appetite. I can sinceaely recommend it to all
others similarly afflicted. J. MINN tee, Borough of

BETTER TIMES.—"ShaII I hold your horse, sirt" said
nice - looking,Nveli-spoken boy, at the upper mama.
I was pleased a ith his appearance and address; eft,
after a walk around the stone parapet, prepared to M.

woman, "me and me four children live in that booms
there, and make a dacent living; I should not like topers
• with the boy at all." "That house," referred to, am
a mud hovel—a shanty with a single room, and yet the
!nether contrived to bring up four children in it with so
much contentment, that she was unwilling to part with
one, although it might evidently have bcitetad his for.
times. "I low strangely is society divided," said my
frie n d, who took his seat in the buggy as we wereabout
returning to the city. "1 also have four children, mid
yet my house with thirteen rooms in it, and for which I
pay $l,OOO per annum, is not big enough to cowrie

I b e li eve we are beginning to find out the folly e['
rnakinz sacrifice.; to keep u;; appearances. The credit
o f a man of business is now strengthened if he resides
in a butts,: plainly furnished, is frugal in his living, amp
ages to save a penny; makes a decent appearance with
out the aid of fashionable extravagance, does nothiagfor
' effect, and makes no costly entertainments. How &S.' .
ferent it was in 1336. It aas a furious contest for ea
trava.gant :Lod costly rivalry. hone man in business hi
red a In rge house, furnished it splendidly, kept 2. pair of
spanking bays and a barouchetanother caught the infec
tion, and also hired a larzer house, furnishes it more
splendidly, and sported a more elegant baroucheorsis•
d-ris than his neighbor; and thus competition, rivalry,
and fashionable opposition involved great outlays; fail-.
tire followed failure; and, in a short time, these aspiring
bloods crowded close upon each other in the list of bank
rupts. It is incredible how evil exam2les are closely
imitated. If mylkeighbor, no better off than myself,
lives extravagantly; sees company, gives good dinners,
has a box at the opera, and keeps a fast trotter, I am
in a measure restless and discontented till 1 can do the
same: the contagion spreads; we are all in the infected
district, all have a touch of the disease, all take the
same medieine, and all LUC equally prostrated. Now,
if we were more disposed to imitate what was worthy
of imitation—economy, propriety, comfort without os
tentation, simplicity in living, plainness of manners,and
absence of all pride and self-sufficiency—how muchbelt.
ter we would all be off in the world.
_ -
When shall the reform commence? We answer,now,
'rum this very ninZnent. Better times prevail; say what
we will, we hare better times. The surface begins to
smooth; the biiiows and uphenN ings are less agitated;
confidence is beginning to be gradually restored: what
business is done, is done with less profit, it is true, but
with more security; it is more difficult to earn the silver
dollar,yet, with ordinary management, it will go further
and provide much more than in 183 G. We have seen
the worst; let us improx e the present by introducing ev
erywhen; a rigid economy, and save a sixpence when
ever we can do so. Let ut begin by discardingevery:
thing looking like slew and ostentation: let us study
comfort, and give up luxuries altogether.
A few months. ago I was led by curiosity to attend a
sale of splendid furniture in a spacious house in one of
our fashionable squares. Everything was on the most
costly scale, and paid for out of the money procured from
the unguarded credit system. Looking-glasses of $5OO
each; window -curtains $2.00 each; satin-covered rose.
wood chairs, too frail and delicate to sit upon;the whale
r outlay for furniture was somewhat over $lO,OOO, and
brought scarcely one-half that sum. I knew the lady
and her two daughters well; they were thin and pale
from want oflaboriuus exe rc isr , ; they looked discontented
and unsettled; out of sorts with everything; they were se
bout to enter, upon czunpulsion, on a new course oflik
to pursue a rigid emmononly, to live upon their actual
earnings, and it made them uneasy and fretful.
.A short time after the sale, passing a small neat two
story house, of $3OO rent, one of time young ladies tap
ped at the window, threw it up, and asked me to come
in. I was surprised and pleased at the change I saw
in everything. The girls looked fresh and rosy, were
dressed with great neatness, and the mother appeared
quite happy and contented. Everything was plain--a
Kidderminster carpet on the floor, chairs cheap and
substantial; on the mantle-piece were races tilled with
fresh flowers, instead of the $5OO clock and or-issolis
candolnbras. "We take great exercise now," said the
mother; "haunt; no carriage, we are obliged to walk;
The girls rub flit furniture, dust the things, and go to
mark. , t; we have nothing superfluous; we purchase for
our family just one half we did in Place; we keep
but one girl; and when breakfast and dinner are ready,
you cannot imagine how hungry we are, and hay we
enjoy our meal; everything tastes sweet—for we pre
pare it ourselves, and we sleep like tops—everything
has changed for the better." And so it had; they had
discovered the fully of competition, of striving to live
as extravagant as their neighbors, and had sobered
down to the comforts and economy of life, and were re
alizing substantial benefits from the change; they had
the mural courage to rise above the sneers of the intami.- - -
and the fictitious sympathy of professing friends. They
are now contented, and contentment is happiness.
One can hardly believe his own senses when be
looks bask upon the gross and disgusting scenes of
1840, and the appeals made by the coons to the bed
appetites of their followers during the hard-cider del
uge. They were to conquer, as they openly boasted,
because, in the language of one of their songs,
' "Good hard cider the people do crave."
What an insult to popular elections and the cause of
free government! Who that believes in the intelligence
of the people, and in an overruling Providence, could
expect a party that obtained power by such raeaas to
prosper! Here is an extract from one of their elec.
tioneerine appeals:
"HarlCider we'll drink, 'tis a motto we'll wear,
Inscribed on our banners—hard cider is there;
Our log-cabin, too, with the flag of the brave,
We'll go go forth to battle, our country to save,
For good Hard Cider the Ppple do crave."
And yet in the train of those who went "forth to bat
tle," bellowing as they went "hard cider we'll drink,"
were to be found professors of religioia, dea&nas of
churches, and in some instances ministeitof the gob
pel! men who knew the demoralizing effects such a
course would have upon the community. But their
triumph has passed. They ''stooped to conquer," and
the base means resorted to alarmed even those who aid
ed them. They maddend the brain that they might;
control the action, but returning sense brought convic
tion of error. The historian who records these facts
will hardly be believed by the next generation. Those
only can fully realize, who saw, the scenes of 1840.
