Bolter Bargains thin ever, at the Three Big
THE subscriber would respectfully infornk his cus
tomers and the public genendly, that notwithstad
ing the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
.luring the present season; he has still on hand the ler
: gest and most varied assortment of elegant CLO
THING that can be bungle west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that alNrticles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRH 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
eternity, 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 are invited to
purcimse, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at see ••••• it 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 the Pitts
burgittinblic. Purchasers shn 'A be on their guard a
gainstthese impositions, and they may rely on the fact
nhatno establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
'bargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
bees garments are made in this city, by competen t work
men, and not gathered up like the goo4now 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"
flaareebtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
aity other establishment-
lie would again return his thanks to his friends and
Ilia public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
uptaihis establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantmm 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

impression that all the rejected and forsaken martyrs
of true love were carried off', sooner cr Inter, by the
same insidious disease. Accordingly his first step
was to remove from the too keen air of Nntonville, to
the milder climate of Tirornpton, Where he took
small detached house, adapted to the state of single
blessedness to which he was conde.mnekl•
His establishment consisted but of two female ser
vants—namely, a housemaid, and a middle-aged wo
man, at once cook, housekeeper, and the nurse, who
professedly belonged to a consumptive family; arid',
therefore, knew what was good or bad, or neither, for
all pulmonary complaints. Her name Was. Batton.
She was tall, large-boned, and hard featured; with a
loud voice, a stern eye, and the decided manner of a
Military sergeant; a personage adapted, and in fact
accustomed, to rule much More refractory patient*
than her master. It did not, indeed,

next to his skin," or Woolen comforters round his
throat and waists, or even a hare-skin on his, chest hi

and clogs against Wet, and a m - eat-coat in Cold weather:
nay, he was even out-talked into putting his jaw into
these hideous contrivances callod respirators . . Bat
tbis was nothing. He was absolutely compelled td
give up all animal food and fermented liquors—to re::

and water, his glass of wine. his bottled porter-, hi*

not even allowed to taste the table-beer. He hid
promised to bo consumptive, and Mrs. Button took
him at his word. As much light pudding, sago, eV

but as to meat or "stimulesses," she would as 5 1 00 ti

To this dictation, the patient first demurred, bi:tt SOOn

to a man just rejected by a female, than the show d
kindness by another of the sex. It restores hint IA
self-love, reverses the sentence of social excominanice
