Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
THE subscriber would respectfully inform his en
toners and the public generally, that notwithstad
ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present season . , he has still on hand the I,, r _
gest and most varied assortment of elegant CIO

The nubl!:;. ; may -- •
assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in the Eastern markets this spring and madein
to garments by Pitttsbuigh workmen.
In 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 whic they are invited to
Purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered- at several of the concerns in this city, arc
the mere ofrals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers 1.1 c• be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
ht ao establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
'lmigtiiris as can he had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri-
Ines garments are madeintkis city,by competent work
men, and not gathered isp like the ge oils new 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 his be
the public for the unprecedented patronagest do wed
upon his establishment, and believing that they hare
bandit to their advantage to deal with him, he would

of every -description at the lowest price,to call

Some cents ago, two gentlemen met on a brigitt bra

A shilling! but a shilling! to administer to the wants of
these gentlemen, and to keep them from the pangs of

SsATISTICS OF LUCIFER MATCHES.--OueOf the wit
nesses before the Children's Employment Commission,
stated that he is a maker of the boxes fur containing
lucifer matches, and for the Anierican pine wood, of
w tick he makes them, he is in the habit of paying the
large sum of Ll,lOO a year. According to this belief,
from twelve to fifteen thousand grass of such boxes
as he manufactures were made every week in London
' during the year 13 , 11, Each boa contains fifty match:.
es. Upon these data the sub-comvrissii•ner calculates
that the weekly consumption of lncifor matches arrtl
uunts to 97,200,000 ,or 5.0i5,000,000 yearly.
The Cincinnati Chronicle a•tsigntt appropriate ion.;
portance to the coaltrade in the valley of the Minis;
-ipi. which, although now only in its. earliest infancy.
is destined to become nn object of vast concern. Id
the year 1.1:133, there were received at New Orleans
Gnat the interior r...'1,120 bushels °renal: while, during
the present year, the receipts there for the same quar
ter amounted to '255.568 bushels—being a tenfold in=
crease in ten years. The Chronicle remarks that the
trade in western coal at New Orleans, however, is only
an evidence of the increase, not of the quantity. not
consumption of coal in Cincinnati is four times that of
New Orleans, and the increase of the trade has been
nearly as great.
