THE subscriber would respectfully inform his co:-
tourers and the public generally, that notwithstad
ng tho unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
ritreiag the present season; he has still on hand the lar
ge* and mast varied assortment of elegant CLO
TFIING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all' articles offered at
hisstore are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in tiro Eastern markets this spring and made in
trigarmenu, by Pitttsburgh 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 which they are 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, and sent out bore to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers she, 'A be on their guard a
lpinist these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
hatao establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
bargains as can be had at the "Throe Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments ore made in tkis eity,by competen t work- ,
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
siss "hints 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
fmind it to their advantage to deal with him, he would
repel:aids invitation to all those who wish to purchase
