Dotter Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
THE subscriber would respectfully inform his cas
turners and the public trenerally, that - antst-ith,‘taci
ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has s till on the Inc.
gest and mnit varied as•sortment of eleeant CLO
THING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles ofTlTtulat
his store are maufactured from FRESI I 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 mu :ty,
cast off garments of former sea4ons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain Eh, char
niter of the establisbmmts 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 fart
thatno establishmentihat advertises eastern made Clo
thlng, cangive as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as can be had at the "Throe Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made in this rit y, by compuitmt work
men, and not gathered up like the gotals now offered by
dab "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"
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 f r i en d s an d
tile public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
upon his establishment, and believing that they have
dit to their advantage to deal with him, h e would
sepeat his invitation to all those who wish to purchase
Clothing of every description at the lowest price,to call

THE attention of those who have been somewhat
sceptical in reference to the numerous certifi
cate* published in favor of Dr. Swavne's Compound
yrstp , of Wild Cherry, on account of the persons being
unknown 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 the Agent, Mr. J. Kum v.
I have used Dr. Swame's Compound Syrup of Wild
Cherry for a Cough', with which I have been severely
afflicted 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 can sinceaely recommend it to all
ether's similarly afflicrecl. J. Mtrtelic It, Borough of

Here stood a city in the days of old.
With kingly power and treasured gold,
Now sinking beneath the gathering mould,
Or forgotten days.
O'er the rich coldifna with genius fraught,
Where Irroes'and demi-gods aro wrought,
The green moss lays.
Once through those streets the busy throng,
Of fashion and beauty moved along,
To the halls of wealth, where music and sons,
Filled the arch'd dome. • ,
And eves that out-shone the jewel bright,
That decked their browv, on that festive night,
Hav - e closed in gloom.
And youths and maidens at eventide,
Through the peaceful valleys were seen to glide,
And in joyous groups from the mountain aide,
Were returning home.
'From the merry dance, where the blue grape tined,
And over the burning lava twined,
In clustering bloom.
And the temple grand with its towering spires,
That reflected back the Cosaguina'st fires,
And before its altar in rich attires,
The priestly train,
To some stuccoed god have offered here,
The morning incense and the evening prayer,
O'er the victim slain.
But the sound of the hammer is heard no more,
Or song of the boatman that leaves the shore,
No crowds through the gates bf the city pour,
For all is still,
Save the dismal sound of a falling stone,
11V ben some bird of might from its place has flown,
• To the distant hill.
Whether pestilence rode on the sickening blast,
And by thousands struck them down as it passed,
Or intestine war o'er the city cast
Its flag of blood.
More dregdful far than the putrid loath,'`
The earthquake's shock, or the scorching breaib;
Of the lava flared.
,Wit at has been their fate, we cannot say,
I?ut a mighty people have passed away,
:In dark oblivion their records lay.
And all is gone,
Exceot those works of art sublime,
'That have stood the wreck of destroying time,
And are here alone.
• Of one thing there is no doubt; a large city once
stood there: its name is lust, and its history tualtnowfac
• * * For centuries it has lain as completely
bdried as if covered with the lava of Vesuvius. Every
tra‘eler from Viabal to Guatimala has passed within
three hours' ride of it; we ourselves had done the sant%

ment, and proceeded to business, W. B. Forrici,
Esq., Mayor, in the chair. The Committee of six re
ported through their chairman, Col. W. RontusoN,jr"
as follows, vv: The Committee appointed at the meet
ing on the :2Gth August to examine into the practica
bility and expense of uniting the Canal in this city
with a safe and convenient steamboat harbor of ade
quate dimensions. Report, That in discharge of the
duty assigned them. they proceeded to make an exami
nation of the contemplated location of the proposed
itnproyement, accompanied by an experienced engi
neer, W. B. I' s OSTF.II, jr., who had previously, at the
suggestion of several of our citizens, made a survey
and drawing of the work. The Committee does not
consider itsef called upon to dwell at length on the im
portant advantages which must necessarily accrue to
the trade and business, and the increased value of the
whole real estate of the city which the projected im
provements, ptoperly carried out, would produce.
On these points, it is believed but one sentiment ca.
160 in the community, if practicable at any reasonable
expense. With regard to its practicability the Com
mittee does not entertain a doubt. Nature, with her
bountiful band, has already accomplished in part Lbw
work for us, as it is the unanimous opinion of the Com
mittee that as a community we would be unfaithful to
our best interest, were we longer to permit the greet
natural advantages presented us to remain unimproved.
The next matter of consideration, and one of the
greatest moment, is the question of expense. On tbs . "'
point the duties of the Committee were greatly facili
tated by the calculations of Mr. FOSTER as to the
quantity of the various kinds of work in excavation,
embankment and timber, together with an estimate of
the cost of a n Out-let Lock entire, from which it appear
that, of the two former, there will be about 270,000
cubic yards, which the Committee estimate (from the
opinion of old and experienced canal contrattois,
among whom was D. LEECH,) at not exceeding tat
cents per yard, making for that branch of the work
$27,000; one hundred and twenty thousand feet
square timber, at three cents per foot is $3,000; Oat•
let Lock, per Mr. FOSTER '3
estimate, 7.000; contin
gencies, such as superintendence, &c. &c. not knows
—supposed $lO,OOO.
The Committee take for granted that the quantities
`of the various kind: of work have been accurately
!made. The only question then is of calculation sts•
Ito the prices affixed to each respectively. In this dor
have relied on the judgment of discreet and pact"
2,lnidemen. Should, then, the general swot". "
Which we have arrived for the cost of costructi °n . saY
1550,000, approximate at all near the truth it willnot
be doubted by any intelligent citizen, we that
!immediate measures will be .3opted by the authorities
of the city, to proceed at once with the work s a very
