TLIE subscriber would respectfully inform hi 3 i
tomerd and the publicgcncrully, that notwithstad
ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,

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 Pitttsburgli workmen.
Iri consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our 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 arc 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, anti sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers het 'd be on their guard a-
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact I
thatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
aking, can give as good an article or us advantzq•eous
• • s as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
'a garments are made i n this city, by competent work
and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
"birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
• slop shops. It will always he 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, ilhd 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

THE HORSE AND THE LOCOMOTIVE.
"I: a! ha!" _aid the horse, and he capered with glee
Round the meadow that skirted the way,
- There will be very little more use now for me
To be haraesled to c irria.ges—hoigh
"What a curious creature they've got to that trais.;.
What a puffing and snorting he makes !
"And 'tie said that he eats neitherfodder nor grad.••:
Wood and orator are ati that he takes.
-And then what a spirit the fella,/ retains ! -.....
So tireless!—his bottom is good;
"And he never turns tail to the windg and the rains.
And all 11.1113 E gut out of the road!"
And the old horse laughed loudly, "He! he! he! bed
Let them drive away as fast as they please--
A fig for the railways—the meadows for me,
To ramble or rest at my ease !"
And the horse caper'd on in a spree of delight,
And I've nothing further to tell,
For I scarcely had time, ere we were out of tight,
To bid the old follow farewell.
DR FRANCIA, THE DICTATOR Or^^ PAU:,
The stern rule of this singular man in Paragttay
maintained steadily during his life, constitutes one of
I the most remarkable phenomena in the history,of the
I South American states. His policy was to isolate his
country from all the snrraunding countries, prohibiting
intercourse, restricting commerce, establishing. in fact
a sort of Spartan exciusiv.eness. S,rangers and tray.
ellers coming into Parsg,uay were not allowed to
out. The fr..intiers were protected by a series of fom
tilled posts, well guarded; and Francis, sole ruler with ,
in his dominions, stood watchful, with jealous eye,
to see that no disturbing influences frt.ra the distracted
states then waging war around them, should be allots;
ed to invade his little community.
