ABRAEI AM J. CLEMER, residing at 66, Mutt
street, New York, was afflicted with Dyspepsia
is its mostaggravated form. The symptoms were vi.
olentheadache, greatdebility, fever, costiveness,cough,
loartburn; pain in the chest and stomach always after
eating, impaired appetite, sensation of sinking at the
stomach, furred tongue, nausea, with frequent vomit
lags, dizziness towards night and restlessness. These
ned continued upwards of a twelvemonth, when, on
consulting Dr. Wm. Evans, 100 Chatham street, and
submitting to his ever successful and agreeable mode
of treatment, the patient was completely restored to
health in the short space of one mouth, and grateful for
the incalculable benefit derived, gladly came forward
and volunteered the above statement. For sale, whop

M HE subscriber
.would respectfully inform his CBS
tonters and the publicgenerally, that notwithstad
iag the unprecedented sales at the Three Big Doors,
during the present season; he has still on hand the lar
gest and most varied assortment ofelegant CLO
THING that can be bought west of the mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH 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
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast ofTgarments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter of the establishments in which they arc invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, arc
the Intro offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops. and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers vhotld be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they muy rely on the fact
that no 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
ber's garments are made in this 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 for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
a 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 to all those who wish to purchase

and flickered in the lamps with a tipsy, up-ell-night

hold by the mean.souled worshippers of usartaatin.
Save those, all was stillness, but in the abodes. of
wretchedness and continued labor, to which I am s•
bout to conduct the reader, all was astir.
Perhaps no city on the face of the globe Can parallel
the utter destitution and misery, both apparent and
actual, which are to be found in the core of this great
metropolis, surrounded by evidences of a superabun
dant wealth, with the palace of the nobility bounding
it on one side, and the scarcely less spknd mensfort
of the merchant-kings on the other, stands, or rather
rots, the parish of St. Giles, the very focus of squalid
poverty, the nucleus of distress, the nurse of rice: year
after year has it been denounced as the hotbed of con
tagion, the 'normal' school of crime. Yet thens-res
mains, and will remain, unless the hand of heaven, by
the purification of fire averts a second plague.
In a wretched stable, In the most wretched lane of
this wretched neighborhood, the sound of a merry
voice might be heard, in merry contrast to the Enri
rounding scene. The singer is Kit Cubb, now about
fifteen years old, and the happy owner of a backi cab
and horse, although the most of his hitherto life bid
been passed in lounging about, running a message,
pulling down shutters, with internals of dangerous Ins
actiN ity, yet lie had curiously escaped the vitiating in
thence of the society into which 'fate or metaphysical
agency' had cast him.
About a year previous to this time, a large cab•own.
cr, struck by the boy's frank countenance, enga g ed him
as a driver, and as a reward fur his integrity and
dustry, sold him a vehicle, consenting to receive the
amount in small weekly instalments.
Last night the purchase was made, and this morn
ing beheld him. Alexander, the Great. when Barbie
owned him conqueror,—Napoleon, when with his Own
hands he placed the crown of Charlemagne upon hid
head, were not a whit more happy than poor Kit Cobb,
when, in the extravagance of his joy, with eyes stfeent
ing and a choking voice, he cried, •Horse and cab, all
mine, mine!' and then he would laugh, and dance, and
sing, with all his might. now squaring up at the horse
and punching at him as though he had'nt a greater
exieny iu the world—now bugging and kissing the
brine s long face with most alarming emphasis.
He was fond of the animal; the truth is, it was the
first affection, and I am happy to say the feeling was
reciprocated, for as Kit would rub his horse down,
pluck his ears, and bestow such like evidences of par
tiality, the animal would neigh and k• miff knowingly
at him, as much as to sav—
`Your particular friend, Kit; stick to me, and I'll
stick to you.'
Which is short, but (for else the author flatters himself,)
Gentle reader, with your kind permission, We jump
two yimrs, and find in addition to his horse and oab,

bonnet, with other smaller matters, not mentioned in

The result of Kit's domestic arrangement was, in due.

Things began to look elonml,lthe outgoing! exceeded
the incomings, notwithstanding their mo•t stringent
exertions; for the first time Kit had been unable to

despondent and the old horse moped from sympathy.
One morning poor Kit took the last truss of hayana

Old Turk sniffed, and puailed his nose out in antkal•

'Motu hurry you're in, you precious old rascal,'
said Kit, rather offended at Turk's evident want ofsen•
timent; 'lot me tell you a bit of my mind before you
eat a morsel, and he snatched back the sieve of oats
just as Turk had licked his teeth round for the second
mouthful, a proceeding for which he made his displea.se

selfish old reprobate.' The horse gave Irt one reproach.

into the welcome food. It was not long before he had
nuzzled up every grain.
'Now then,' said Kit, stroking down the old hr
mane as he spoke, 'l'm going to tell you something
that will break your held; leastwise I think it will, I
wouldn't say anything of it before, for fear of spoiling
your breakfast; but things are getting worse, Turk,
and if something don't turn up in the course of thevery
day, we—we'll have to part. You—you and I'll have
to part—to part, Turk,' he repeated sternly, one round
big tear settling in the corner of his eye, and gently
pulling the horse's ears as he spoke.
The o'd brute, for the purpose of enjoying the hi a. to an extent, placed his head on Kit's shoulder.
That was enough—construing it into en appeal to
his affections. Ile could stand it no longer but burst
into a flood of tears, exclaiming through his sobs—

old Turk for, as he thought, the last time.
