that 'can he botglit west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
hitstore are maofiolured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In comecrence of die multiplication of slop shops in
oar 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 concern in this city, are
the name offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
siuspa, 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
that no establishmeot that advertises eastern made Clo.
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as cap be had at the "Three Big Doors."
Thepablic sill please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made in this eity,by competent work
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
eastern slop shops. It will always be his endeavor to
maintain, the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
llurre 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

"%rut his establishment, and believing that they • have
found it to their advantage to deal with him, he would

avenger paused for a moment, and then paced to and

patient step of a beast of prey along the bars of his
cage; but soon his brow grew blacker, and his hire met
with a firmer resolution—"He is spent with fut o ns's,"
he said aloud, although communing 'only with himself;
"he is weary with murder, or he would by this time

weight of despair is surely not greater than the weight
of guilt." And so saying, he stepped backward to the
proper distance, and j'egan to prepare himself for the
adventure. This he did, in the first place, by striking
his blade into the ground, clasping his hands, raising
stp his face towards heaven, and repeating a short pray*

his good steel again, and, l lanting his feet firmly is
their proper posture, was about to spring forward to
the perilous undertaking. The outlaw, who had ap
parently watched his movements, and even hoard his
words, raised himself gradually from his reclining per
ture—first on his knees, and then, as his enemy's pre.
partitions seemed to be nearly completed, upon his
feet. "Stop!" he cried; “witness that I at least have
not sought this. The event be on your head! I con-

The reply of the avenger was to wave the bloody
handkerchief in the air, which he then plated in his iscs•

bounds, he darted from the side of the mountain. The.
desperation that had prompted him to adventure, lent
an energy to his limbs which it was believed only one

ordinary fierceness; and, had that meeting taken place

ors in the field—no flashing of the sword—no spilling
of blood—r.o cries of triumph;or of vengraice! On the
one part, it was an instinctive, silent clinging to the
only object of support within reach—and, onthe other,
a desperate but hopeless resistance against a power
which seemed, with supernatural force, to begradually
dragging him to perdition. They stood thus for some
moments upon the smooth and sloping edge of thepre.
cipice, their frames convulsed, and their sinews crack

ghastly features the image of death.
"I warned thee!" at last broke, in choked accents,
from the white lips of the outlaw, as their fate became
certain, and a glare of rage and terranillumined form
instant his despair. The bridegroom replied by betid

his teeth from his bosom the bloody signal of ven
