Better Bargains than ever, at tho Three Big
MHE subscriber would respectfully inform his ens
tonters and the publicgenerally, that notwithstad
ing 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 offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in the Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
ur city, filled with pawnbrokers clothes and the musty,
-• t off garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
.' es, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
" ter of the establishments in which they are invited to
..urchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at se eral 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 tho
'burgh public. Purchasers should be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
-that no establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
.iug, can give as good au article or as advantageous
gains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made inthis city,bv competent work
`men, and not gathered up like the goads 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"
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 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
repeat 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 uumerous certifi
cates published in favor of Dr. Swayne's Compound
Syrup 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. KIF.CY.
I have used Dr. Swavue'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 saving 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 sincerely recommend it to all
others similarly afflicred. J. INlLvstcfc, Borough of

MONODY ON THE DEATH OF A BANE
Not a sound was heard save the cashier's wen,
As the last doubloon was counted - ,
Not a clerk discharged his tailor's bill.
When he from his desk dismounted.
The teller he told his tale of woe,
And the payer refused to pay;
The attorney he turned his back logo,
And the runner he ran away.
And short were the oaths of the presided
As he fumbled amid the dross,
And filled his pouch, as he always meant
He charged it to profit and loss.
Not a angle qualm disturbed his brass%
On account of the slight default;
He swept the board of all that was 1"
And locked up the empty vault.
He thought as be heaped the shining:File r
And rolled up the greasy notes,
He had saved enough to last him a while,
And purchase a few more votes.
Yet little he reeked that his rotten suit
Would find but a few espousers,
And less he thought that his cloven foci',
Stuck out frombeneath his trowsera.
'Tis said that at night's parting well
Re-echoes from wall to wall,
And a troubled chost of aspect pale,
Disports in the banking hall.
At times it will perch on the marble doss%
Or hide in the discount closet,
And oft and again in a solemn tone
Chaunt over the word "deposit."
Dim is the light in the corniced room.
Where "directors" often sat,
And naught enlivens the midday gloom,
But the sports of the owl and bat.
The ample throne with its tinselry,
Of the fallen would-be king,
Is the scene of the spider's tyrann',
And the home of the creeping thing.
Yet who can gaze on the hytirs's form,
When the quickening spark has Bed,
And feel that the spirit of the storm
Is slumbering with the dead.
The angry glare, and defying scowl,
Lived to the latest breath.
And avarice sped in the parting bowl,
Of the mons.ter strong in death.
