chased in the Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
%consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast or garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the, public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter attic establishnsents in which they are invited to
purchase, before they part, with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in cilia city, are
she mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers she ld be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that no establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as eau he had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
. • . 'a garments are made in this city, by competent work
'meth and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
theilbirds 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"
hare 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

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. KIRBY.
I have used Dr. Sway ne'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 cansinceJely recommend it to all
others similarly offlicred. J. MINsICK, Borough of

GENERAL JACKSON AND H. M. BRACICEP;I%
W e published in the daily Globe of Tuesday lasts
and shall transfer to our country paper of to-day, s let
ter from General Jackson to a gentleman in Pittsburgh,
Pa., dated the 22d of last month, and printed in the
Pittsburgh Morning Post, showing the ingratitude (if
nothing worse) of H. M. Brackenridge. The Poet
says that Mr. Brackenridge had, "in some of his tecent.
letters, Made an uncalled-for attack on General Jack•
son." which induced the latter to write the letter.
Mr. Brackenridge has replied to General Jackson',
letter in one of the Pittsburgh papers, in three 'cohtmns
of abuse. We read only part of it, and catmot now
find the papercontaining it. Our impression is, that
Mr. Brackenridge appears to doubt whether General
Jackson wrote the letter which appeared in the Pint.
burgh Posgand denies most, if not all, that is contaratra
ed in it. We have not the least doubt of the authenW.
city ofthis letter, because we have seen another, 'vrtits
ten by General Jackson's own hand, to one of his
friends in this city, dated the 20th January, 1848 1
which is the same, in subst ince, as the letter receody
published in Pittsburgh. We have permission to
make the following extract from it:
Extractfrom a letter from General Jackson to

IlEamtraos, Jan. 20, 1843.

of this, I pray you to present to him my thanks for this
act of justice to me, and for the scourging be bas given

found in New Orleans, on my way to Pensacola to re.
ceive the Government of Florida, without money and
without friends. I took him into my family, bore all
hi s expense s , and appointed him nlcalde and SWOT*
translator of the Spanish language; but, finding he
translated imperfectly, I made young Mr. Rutledge
translator. I had not the least idea of his treachery
until after he was charged with having left his bench,
in the midst of a cause, (the jury being in the box,)
without his hat, and never returned to adjourn the
court. In consequence of this. I would not re-appoint
him; and he then came out against me with an abusive
pamphlet, in which he acknowledged that he had Oa
en a false translation of Governor Callas-la's address to
me, from an apprehensiion that I might treat him
harshly- 2 admitting thereby that be had perjured him:
self. What a compound of baseness and ingratinnie!
And these are the tools that my enemies hire to abets.

not injure them greatly. The letter of Mr. Darby Is
well written, and, with honest men, will have its effect
The gentleman in this city to whom the letter eta
written, from which the above extract is taken, has
been an intimate friend with General Jackson for the
last twenty er thirty years, arid says that he has often
heard him declare that Brackenridge translated falt yely
and Olathe (Bracl;enridge) afterwards acknowledged
in a pamphlet that he had done so.
Breckenridge was in this city, in the spring of tls
year 18'32, and then wrote two long essays against
General Jackson, which were published in the weekly
United States Telegraph. Those essays show themes
lignity of Breckenridge, zndhow unscrupulous he-it le
making statements. We subjoin an editorial article
taken from the Globe of the 11 th of May, 183:1, which
proves that Breckenridge is not to be belies:end *hen
he is his own witness. In the article there is a letter
from William P. Duval. then Governor of Florida, who
was in this city when he wrote it. It is believed that
Breckenridge was also in this city at the time. We
have searched the Telegraph for the w hole year of 183.2,
and cannot find that Breckenridge replied to the letter
written by Gov. Duval and published in the Globe.
From the Globe of May 11, 1832.
AN HONEST JUDGE.
M. BR tette I) in. lut , r judge of Florida, who
was taken up by General Jackson, cherished by his
kindness, and promoted through his influence, wheat
without succor or support—after having forfeited the
confidence of his benefactor, has very naturally associ.
ated himself with Duff Green, in abusing one to whore
he owes so many obligations, through the (whining of
the Telegaaph. He evinces all the deadly hatred of
a renegade; and every line which his pen gives the
public, more truly than the pencil of the most Ferfeet
limner, serves to portray the character of one who first
deceives, next bates. and lastly seeks to betray, a gen ,
emus and noble-minded patron.
In consequence of theknowledge which the Pte
dent obtained of ti e manner in which Mr. Bracken.
ridge conducted himself as judge of Florida, (a station
which was obtained for him through the influence of
General Jackson, from Mr. Monroe,) he declined re•
appointing him to office. This has induced the ex•
judge to lay aside his mask, and come oat in his true
character before the American public. In one orbit
late letters in the Telegraph, upon the subject of hi*
digappointraent, he seeks to make the impression that
was a kind friend of the President. who owed him,
Many obligations, and had been cast °W and abandon..
ed with cause personally—withont fault officially; am/
he say:, in a 'faithless and dishonrable manner?'
He gives us. in his letter, the account of the mode in -
which he solicited the renewal of his commission, and !
he says, obtained a promise that his wishes would be ,
complied with. It will be observed that in the first
letter he lays stress upon the circumstance that he
made publications "which operated in favor of Gem.
Jackson's election." We quote his remarks, to thole
how he puts forth his claims to the President's gratiA
tude, and will contrast them with the feelings he etc
hibits in hit second letter, proving at once his hypcserl
ey, and how little claim he had on the President',
kindness. He says:
"My feelings towards General Jackson were Wooer:d i
the srosT PERFECT GOOD WILL, and I had no reason to
suppose he entertained any other towards ire.
&reed by this impression, I paid rite respects to him it
Washington, last spring. He received me in the molt
cordial, frank, and friendly manner; invited ma W a
family dinner, and after it was over retired with ms,
smo)ted his pipe, and exhibited to me bit nontinaticet

occasion to mention that my commission would Innen,
be renewed at the next session of Congress. I bawl
considered the renewal as a matter of course, as the
term had been always hitherto, practically regarded's
being during good behavior. It bad been renewed ea ' 7 "
