subscriber would respectfully inform his cus
tamers and the public generally, that notwithstad
leg 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 thattan be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that nil 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 offgannents of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter of tllo 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 offals 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
itiattre establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thi.iti 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
.lser's garments are made in this city, by competent work
inert, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
"birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
'`.....iinistentslop shops. It will always be his endeavor to
taiga/sin the reputation that the "Three Big Doors"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
- LING in every respect, and at prices below those of
say 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 advantage to deal with him, he would
ropest his invitation to all those wpsh to purchase

after, this shipper being at my house with an Oki

Philadelphia; and my wife and I computed that the
whole could not have cost less than a hundred
pounds. "True," said the farmer, "but you do not
tell all the story - . I think the cap was nevertheless
an advantage to us; for it was the first thing that pat
our girls upon knitting worsted mittens for sale at
Philadelphia, that they might have wherewithal to
buy caps and ribbons there; and you know that, that,
industry has continued, and is likely to continue and
increase to a much greater value. and answer hotter
purposes."—Upon the whole, I was more reconciled
to this little piece of luxury, since not only the girls
were made happier by having fine caps, but the
Philadelphians by the supply of warm mittens.
