ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,

chased in the Eastern markets this spring and
torents by Pitttsburgh workmen.
tusequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our city, failed 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 inviteed

mere off er of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts

gaMst these impositions, and they ma
astery rely on
*also establishment that advertises en
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
hatpins 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 cornpetentwork
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
ewe= 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 b elow those of
asoi other eatablishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and

amongst the many old and fanciful su:es • .
embodied in the traditions of oft peasantry, soots 4 ....
the most poetical are those connected with spring meat, • •..
which in Ireland have been invested with sernatbflig '..:
of a sacred character ever since the days of Drat/id:at
worship. It is in some parts of the country an uttiele
of popular belief, that the desecration of a spring by ._
any unworthy use, is invariably followed by seine Mile•
fortune to the offender, and that the well itself, Which
regarded as the source of fruiteulness and pops

been a respectable mansion, and evidently of mesa
erection, standing near the road in almost utter ruirks.. i

gainst the opposite ditch, and enjoying the betiuy ot

' From the road where we stood; the gitkaund slopes its
regularly down, forming one side of a rich and -pexualif
wooded valley, the centre of which is occupied by a
lake of considerable extent, constituting the principal
feature in the landscape. On the eastern side of Lough
Fay am the rocks of Dhubatti, which tise almost per.
pendicularly from the water; bat being thickly covered
with a stunted copsewood (the finest fox-cover, by the
way, in the entire country) they interfere very little
with the quiet and luxuriant beauty, which is the most
distinguishing cliameteristic of the scenery , The prole
pert is limited on the south by a semicircular range of •
blue and distant hills, while on the north it sttetehee
away bleak and desolate to the horizon. The sun had
ascended but a little way, and the mist was rising front

from the fartn-house we have mentioned, his feelings -
