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 at No. 151, LIBERTY Sr. JOHN M'CLOSKEY. f2rObserve Metal Plate in the pavement. ap 26 Look at This.

To the Agent, Mr. J.

And that every individual making such selec tions is contributing towards a general introduction of an invention admitted by all men who understand the principles of the Steam Engine, to be a sure preventa tive against those dretulful disasters. You have cer tainly, in the hundreds of explosions that have, already taken place, their almost daily occurrence, and the thousands of lives that have already been lost, a s-illi cient warning, and inducement to make inquiry for a. Safety guard Baat, and in every case to give it the preference. They have went to an additional ex pense that your lives may be secure. Ought you not therefore to meet them with a correspondingdegree of liberality, and by your preference show that you appreciate their laudable endeavors to stop this awful sacrifice of hu man life. They do not charge more than other boats; their accommodations in other respects ere equal, and in many cases superior, and as there is ono leaving Pittsburgh every day, why will you run any risk, when it is so comi7letely in your own power to avoid those dis- asters.

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. DIET -'Eat what experience te. ,62 11 yen Afteet best with your stomach," contains moed'osefal advice than riles, or an account of a long list of substances, said to be of the most easy digestion, can tarnish. Far though there are certainly some articles of food gems, rally more easy of dizestionThan others, yet there an always stomachs sufficiently obstinate, capricious and unaccommodating to be ready to give the lie to the dyspeptic doctor's recommenciatictik and to the utility of all rules. One will obstinately digest half a pound of filberts, without difficulty ur uneasiness, and reject, or bear with a thousand agonies, two tea spoOnfulls of white wine, So curious, strange, and omnipotent are the qualities of the nerves oldie stomach, that, in one case, no soon• er does the smallFst quantity of any acid reach its cavity, than the bald head of the individual instantly breaks out in a profuse perspiration, which is diffused gene. rally over the scalp. The weakest stomach I know, digests salt beerbet ter than any thing else; and water gruel, so justly eel& brated, it vomits back again with the most peevish ill nature and want of respectful consideration to mcittrn discoveries. But the patient is not to infer, from this example, that such food is easy of digestion generally, • .hich is contrary to the fact; but he is to infer that there is more practical knowledge to be obtained in his own case, by watching and ascertaining the peculiari• tics of his stomach, than in scrupulously following the customary rules for the selection of diet. Different stomachs, like different human beings, possess different characters --probably from the peat. lutrities in their nervous constitution, which itself is something very like a branch of the peculiar mind of the individual, or at least, very much modified by The folly of legislating for, the stomach creates chan ges in practice, which are any thing but respectable. It the mind rules the nerves of the stomach and.hence di gestion; what set of rules for diet could meet its varied wanderings, unless the effect of its workings was • simple weakening of the nervous powers/ This, how eve r does not appear to be the case. Sensitive persons will act most wisely, by studying the particular con stitution of their digestive organs, and carefully watch ing the different effects of different substances used as diet at different seasons or conditions of the mind. The absurdities of rules are hourly evinced in practice. I know many patients in whom vegetables, so generally obnoxious, will suit the stomach better than any other kinds of food; and where a cubic inch of lean meat, se much recommended, would instantly create uneasiness allowed by a sense of load, oppression and swelling of the abdomen. Again, fat, pure fat, and melted but ter, according to books the greatest enemy a weak sto mach can encounter, will sometimes most disrespect fully and spitefully to the learned authors of the sale books, sit scornfully triumphant in the legitimate habi tation of water gruell— Dr. Fletcher. r 7" A crack-brained fellow, who w•ts slighted by the females, once asked a young lady "if she would con sent to his spending the evening with hes?" "No," she angrily replied, "that I woi't." "Why, you needn't be so put out I didn't mean thii- evening, but some stormy one, when I could not go any where else." FATAL AFFRAY.—The Wetumpka Argos reports, that on the ciay of the election in Bibb county, Ala., E. H. Jones, Esq., one of the candidates for the Legisla• titre, got into a quarrel with C. G. Davis, and stabbed him in several places. Davis died in excruciating tor ment on the 10th, and Jones fled from justice. Davis is represented as a worthy young man, and in 1841-2 was elected a messenger of the lower branch of this legislature.
