The public may rest assured that all articles offered at

tAkmments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
Int onseqaence of the multiplication of slop shops in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast off garmsnu of former se-asons, from the eastern ci
ties, the-public should be cautious to ascertain t
icter ofthe'establishments in which they are i

the mere offals" of New York and Philadelphia slop

gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
thatuo establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advanutgenus
bargains as Can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
be's garments are made in this cit y, 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
any other establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and
the public for the unprecedented patroe bestowe

LINES THAT MAY BE READ.
They may talk or love, in a cottage,
And bowers of trellised vine—
(if nature bewitchingly simph,,
And milkmaids half dirine.
They may talk of the pleasures of sleeping
In the shade of a yleasant tree,
And a walk in the :Ads in the morning.
By the side of a footstep free !
But give me a sly flirtation
By the light of a chandelier—
With music to play in the pauses
And nobody very near;
Or a seat on a silken sofa
With a glass of pare old wine,
And mamma too blind to discover
The small white hand in mine.
Your love in a cottage is hungry,
Your vine is a nest fur flies—
Your milkmaid shocks the Graces,
And sirnrlicity talks of pies!
You lie down to your shady slumber
And wake with a bug in your ear,
And your damsel that walks in the morning,
Is shod like a mountaineer.
aloe love is at home on a carpet,
And mightily likes his ease—
And true lore has an eye to dinner,
And starves beneath shady trees.
His wing is the fan of a lady,
His foot's an invisible thing,
And his arrow is tipp'd with a jewel
And shot from a silver string.
STATISTICS OF THE PYRAMIDS.
Mr. Gliddon gives the exact measurement of the
Memphitc Pyramid as follows: •
ACteli. Roods. Poles.
13 1 22
12 - 3 3
urmer extent of base
Original amount of Masonry
Present " .... -
Original weight of Masciiiry Tons, 6,848,000
Present " " 6,J16,000
The space occupied by chambers and passages being
only 56,009 cubic feet, or 1-1590 of the whole mesa.
Mr. Gliddon gave the following estimate of the weight
of stone employed in the three Pyramids of Gbeizeht
Compare this with the Banker Hill Monument said -- -
to contain 6947 tons ! The stone of the Great Pyra
mid alone would construct 1062 monuments, and the
25 millions of tons of the 30 pyramids would 'erect
3814 monuments. As lighthouses ten miles apart,
they would surround the entire North and South Amer- '..
man continent, and yet leave a heavy balance !
The three pyramids of Gheizeh are identified by the
the hieroglyphics upon their cartouches, to belong to
Shooplio, Shaphre and Menkare, three l'harnotts of
the fourth Memphis dynasty, whose names with five
whet S have been preserved by Manetho, and they serve _
as the pivot whereupon turns the entire Chronology
of ancient Egypt fur times preceding the era of the
accession of the 16th dynasty, in B. C. 22.72. - The
time required to build 30 of these pyramids consecu
at the lowest possible estimate, would exceed
300 years, and allowing 221 years for a kingly gener
ation, thirty kings would have reigned 675 years. If
the third pyramid of Gheizeh be taken as the last of all
built, Menkare, its builder, would be placed at kart at 1 .. '
century before the accession of the 16th dynasty, if
not (as the lecturer said) many generations before the
era, to make room for kings who lived int he interval
after him, and then 29 pyramids were erected before ,:
him. So that the date of the erection of the last pyra
mid cannot be placed lower than 2200 before Christ.
Thus the last of these constructions at Memphis is at . 1
least 4000 years old, and the first of the 30 at lean - 1
4500. Professor Lepsibs dates the great pyramid at
au age beyond the Septuagint flood. All the pyramids 1
in Egypt were therefore built many generations before .1
the birth of Abraham, whom we have been taught to
regard almost as the father of the human race. The
Septuagint era of the flood is the only scale reconcila
ble with Egyptian history, because that places the birth 1
of Abraham about 1002 years after the deluge, and so
allows a possible room fur the pyramids of Egypt. Dr.
Hales, and other orthodox churchmen adopt this com
' putation. If the advocates for archbishop Usher's
chronology deem sloth opinions heretical, it should be
borne in mind distinctly that the "charge of heresy can-
not destroy hieroglyphical facts"—Mr. Gliddon hero
observed with his usual consummate honesty and com
mendable confidence, that "the Egyptian Chronologi
Edifice, in general principles, is built upon a rock,
as any one might verify who would study Rossellini."
Tracing to the ancient denizens o 4
fain source 31 all we know, t c carries
human discovery and invention to beyond 2,500 B.C.
Inconsequence, it. is necessary to re-model and recon
struct the entire table of dates as to the ages of Astron
omy, Geometry, systems of Cosmogony, and all the
arts and sciences fiom them proceeding, or on them
About the may they built the Pyramielt.—Hero
dotto has recorded as a marvel, that they were construe,-
ted from the top downwards. The late discoveries
of Dr. Leipsius piece this really to have been so.
First, the workrnen excavated the rock which was to ~
contain the sepulchral chamber, and then raised over it
as it were, a series of steps, the lines of which formed
a pyramid. This being done, the tomb was ready
against the death of the monarch, and a casing was only
required to complete it. If the king was long-lived,
they continued to increase it by laying layers above,
using the steps for scalTolding and machinery, and to
preserve the pyramid form in all stages of the work. A
Thus they grew to no enormous size, the building al- 1
ways progressing from the top dornmards. For once,
Herodotos was right! It is remarkable that Cheops
lived 63 years, and his pyramid is the largest. The •
rule will hold good with all the pyramids of Memphis,. .
and this, said Mr. Gliddon "is one of the means by
which the m,xtetn bierologists ere long will be able to 4 .
define the chronological duration of the reigns of the --'.
Memphite Pharaohs!' The size of the tomb has been
found a sure indication of the length of each Pharaoh's
rein ; those who reigned longest, having the largest
and best finished tombs—those whose rule was short.
