Better Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
TME subscriber would respectfully inform his ca -
tamers and the public generally, that notwithstad
lag the unprecedented sales at 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 offend at
Ida store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, per
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen..
In Consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
out city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast eSgarments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
tie* tha 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, arc
the mere dials 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 may rely on the fact
thatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantarous
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 fiat city, by competentwor4-
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
eastern slop rasps. It will always be his endeavor to
andatain" the reputation that the "Three Big D'o'ors"
hansobtained for furnishing a superior styli; of CLO
THINEHn every respect, and at prices below those of
any other establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and
the pahlic for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
" l uvespossins establishment, and believing thatthey have
foetid it to their advantage to deal with him, he would
tepoat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase

THE attention of those who have been somewhat
sceptical in reference to the numerous certifi
caw. published in favor of Dr. Swayne's Compound
Syrup of Wild Cherry, on account of the persons being
ISAACIIIIM in this Section of the State, is respectfully di
rected to the following certificate, the writer of which
has been a citizen of this borough for several years, and
is known as a gentleman of integrity and responsibility.
To tie Agent, Mr. J. KIRBY.
I have used Dr. Swayne's Compound Syrup of Wild
Cherry for a Cough, with which I have been severely
eillicuxl for about 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 cansincesely recommend it to all
