B Ater Bargains than ever, at the Three Big
THE subscriber would respectfully inform his cus
tomers and the publicgenerally, that notwi thstml
ug thu unprecedented sales at th- Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has still on hand the lar
gest and most varied assortment of elegant CLO
THING that can be bought we=t of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store arc maufactured from FR ESI I GOODS, pur
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburg It 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 seseral of the concerns in this city, are
the mere offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out heie to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers .hee 'AI be on their guard a
gainstthese impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that no establishment that advertises castern mete 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
ber's garments are madeinthis city, by competent work
men, and not gathered up like the goods now 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 forfurnishing it superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
o ny 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
repeat his invitation toad those who wish to purchase
Clothing of every description at the lowest prlce,to call

THE attention of those who have been somewhat
sceptical in reference to the numerous certifi
cates published in favor of Dr. Swayne's Compound
Syrup of Wild Cherry, on account of the persons being
unknown in this Seaton of the State, is respectfully di
rected to the following certificate, the writer of which
has been a citisem of this borough for several years, and
is known as isiesodensaa of integrity and-responsibility.
To /be Agent, Mr. I. Killer.
I have used Ms Swa-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 gooc t ' p r ate, I cansincerely recommend it to all

PRICE, TWO CENTS:
; After the action of Berga, and expulsion of Cabrera
' from Spain, we marched to Maaresa with Leon's di'
vision. A few leagues from the last named town we
made a short halt in a village, to allow time for the
! staff to take quarters before the division marched in.—
M. and myself were leaning out of the posttda window
; when artofficer passed whom we recognized is haVing
. formerly belonged ro the ehapelgorris, and calling to
him he came up and joined us. His name was :Caviar
rat be had fought with much distinction during the
whole war. and had the scars of seven wounds on his
body. Whilst taking chocolate he told us he had been
appointed as Captain to Espartero's favorite regiment
of the Guides of Luchanit, Which he was proceeding to
jein;acconipanied only by his servant. We soon after
wards marched, Navarra remaining behind, but imend•
ing to come on the same evening.
That night we slept in Manresa, and 'the nett "math

an officer had been found a short distance thEnnt the
town. This was the unfortanate Ntivurra, who cms
ing up some way in rear of the division, had been way.
laid and shot by some one of the numerous parties of
banditti guerillas that still infested the provinces, al
though the war was, in fact. at an end.
Oa learning the death of Nat - aria, Leon ordered the
peasant whose house was nearest to the scene of twat+
!der to be led out and shot. This I heard he did hy the
advice of the A yuntamiento of Aittoresa, who terireieir.
ted to him that he might exhaust his division in running
about the mountains after various bands of ratmrudert,
without the least success, w herea s I y adopting the advice
system the peasants themselves would deliver up the
banditti, Who where dependent on them fdr rations and
The same day an order appeared, announcing that
whenever a robbery or other bats of violence or:.catrred,
no search would be made after those who had coin mea
ted it, but the peasants neatest the spot where
taken place would be punished in the severest maintee.
This prcelatnation put the fear of death in the le'
habitants of the whole district. The fattens torhaten
was sounded, every bell for leagues round set rin g in g ,
and no small din they made, in a country where Thu
most paltry hamlet is better provided with churches
and bells than any other necessaries of civilized life.
The good effects of the erder 'wore soon visible, lot
the next day a peasant occupying a solitary house scatter
miles from Manresa, came in and gave informesion
that the parlida, knuwn as that of the Znpatero, *out
its leader having beena shoemaker, had demanded
rations from him, and announced their intentsor of
sleeping at his house that night.
The necessary orders were given, and at two it the
morning a strongdetachnierit surrounded the hone.--
Notwithstanding the precautions taken, six but of the
twelve men composing the partid managed to agape.
The remainder barricaded themselves in the +tease,
which like many of the peasants' dwellings in Spain,
was built of rough blocks of stone, With only two or
three small openings, serving as windOws, and made
a desperate defence. At last, seeing that the tarty was
breaking, and escape ittspoesible, they asked if their
lives would be spared shonldthercaaiaadttte.
"Por lo quc es dc replied the officer command
ing the detachment, "as far as] ads concerned, my or
ders are to take you prisoners."
They accordingly surrendered, and weer Marched
into Manresa, where they no sooner arrived than Leon
ordered them to be placed in capilla preparatory to
being shot. The priests, however, who went to pre
pare them for their approaching teeth, tact with a
scurvy reception from these desperadoes. I went,
accompanied by a Spanish officer, to see them in the
house where they were confined. I had never beheld
six such desperate looking villians; splendid fellows as
farms their phySical appearance went; tall, muscular
men, with picturesque, Salvator Rosa looking heads,
long curling hair, and their faces, which were bronzed,
almost blackened, by the son and exposure, tleats sha
ved except of wiry. black moustaches. One was a
youth of twenty; standing full six feet high, and of a
symmetary of person that was quite Antinotts-likea--
But by far the must striking-looking amongst them was
little tallow with shoulders that fferetdes 'might have
envied, and tremendous powerful limbs. He was the
most desperate of the party, cursed and Mere at the
priests when they addressed him, and sat there seem
ingly cureless of his approaching fate, smoking and
swallowing, large draughts of wine which they had ask
ed for, and that had been brought them, it not being
usual in Spain to refuse any request of that kind ta
men in their extremity. I had seen enough of this
scene, and left the house.
The same afternoon they were brought out to be
shot. They were all, with one exception-, hijos del
pueblo, natives of Maness, and known to its inhabi
tants from childhood as bad and desperate characters.
It was curious to observe the looks of mingled horror
and pity thrown upon them by the people who thong
ed t h e windows of the houses. Tho band to which
they belong ed had been noted alike for its cruelty and
Fits daring , and in Spain, and in Catalonia especially,
the country of contrabandistas, the latter quality sel
duin fails to excite inuarest and sympathy, even when
coupled with the most attrecious crimes. But per
haps Thetis oust only Spanisk bet Liman nature.
"Adios! adios!" shouted the guerillas, as they march
ed through the streets, with as bold and smart a step
as though they had been going to a banquet, instead
of a grave, to those of their acquaintances and towns
people whom they recognised.
"Year alpargata is in picces;* said his fellow to
his comrade, alluding to one of his hempen sandals
which was falling from his foot.
"Never mind," was the reply. accompanied by a
laugh. "It a ill last as lung as I shall want it."
Three of them appeared somewhat penitent, at last
they listened to theexhortations of the priests who ac
companied them, and on arriving at the place of ex
ecution two of the others kissed the crucifix, and
seemed desirous of dying as Christians. The little
fellow, however, was obdurate to the last. Hiscoun
terrance was expressive of the must desperate energy
and Contempt of every thing. The others knelt down
to be shot—he et first would not do so One of tho
priests held out the crucifix, and made a last effort to
bring him to a better frame of mind. He waved him
away, and turning to the crowd of his townspeople
"Me perdomais,chicoer cried he, -do you pardon
Si! si!" replied severaces.
"Pees estoy conical°. The )+, lam content."
He threw himself on his knee), the volley fired, as*
his companions fell dead. He, however, was only
wounded, and he made a violent effort to regain his
feet, when a sergeant stepped up to him and shot bim
through the head.
I waited a little, but finding she did not come went
to the kitchen to fetch what I wanted. The woman
showed me a large brass-handled knife, strongly rivet
ed by a chain to the heavy kitchen dresser. I was
ratherastonished at this arrangement. but supposing it
to be the fashion of the country, asked the woman fora
free knife, testa chanted one.
"No lesemos, otro, senor, no nos permilen, Oro,"
replied she with a smile. "We have no other, w•estro
not allowed another.
I found upon inseuigation that she spoke the truth.
It appeared that for some time past the state of things
in Catalonia had been such, stabbing :a l ess i.-ina
