i agthe u tprscariented sales a! the Three Big Doors,
daring the prsesent season; he has still on hand the lar
gest an:l tuAit railed assortment of elegant CLO
THING that can be bought west of this mountains.—
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are maufactured from FRESH GOODS, par
ishasecl in the Eastern markets this spring and made in
t', garments by Pittteburgh workmen.
In consequence of the tnultiplication of slop shops in
our city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
cast off' prat eats of earner seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
fester of the establishments in which they are invited to
purchase, before they part with their moaey. 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 here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers .her Id be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
(butte 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 garmentsare made int/us city, by competent work
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
Ito "birds ofpassage front the shreds and patches of
eastern slop shops. It will always be his elld , `llVOr to
maintain the reputation that the "Three Big Doers"
have obtained for furnishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
8 ay other establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and
the public for the unprecodented 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

To the Agent, Mr. J. KIRBY.
I have used Dr. Swayne's Compound Syrup of Wild
Cherry for a Cough; with which I have been severely
sirrosed 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 maintuiru3a regula;
and good appetite. I can Sinentely recommend it to all

(lithe etiquette of a dinner party, it is extraetiely
difficult to sae anything, because fashions are cuntina:
ally changing, even it the best tables; arid what is con

t Remember that it is the Lady who at all timel
takes the precedence, rldt the gentlemen. A person
led a princess out ofthe room before her husband (whd
was doing the same ton lady of lower rank;) in his c ,
ver politeness, he said, " Pa rdonnez q ire nous ' , Dos pre:

The lady of the house will of course take the head
of the table."aed the gentleman of the highest rank will
sit at her right hand; the gentleman next in rank
will be placed on the left of the hostess, so that she
may be supported by the two persdn 3 or itic dion coo. ,

It is a matter of regret that table napkins are not
considered indispensable in Engbind; for, with - Moue
boasted refinement, they ate far from being generals-1
The comfort of napkins at dinner iv LOO 06;:i0i1A to re. ,
quire comment, while the expense can hardly be urged
as an objection. If there be not any napkins, a man
has no alternative but to use the table cloth, unlesti
(as many do) he prefer his pocket handkerchief—a u
sage sufficiently disattreable.
It is considered vulgar to take fish or soup twice.--
The reason for not being helped twice to fish or soup
at a large dinner party is -=because by so doing yen
keeti three parts of the eoinpany staring at you while
Wahine - Jur the second course, whirl is spoiling, much
to the anne3 ;ince of the mistress ofthe house. The eel:.
fish greediness, therefore, of so doing Co istitutes its
vulgarity. At a family dinner it is of less importance
and is consequently often done.
Do nut ask any lady to take wine, until yon see that/
she has finished her fish or soup. This exceedingly
absurd and troublesome custom is very properly giving
w ty at the best tables to the more reasonable one auto
gentlemen helping the lady to wine next to whom by
may be seated, or a servant will hand it round. But il ;
either n lady or a gentleman be invhed to take wine aft
table, they mast never refuse, it is very gauche so to
do. They need not drink half a glass with each pets
son, but merely taste of it.
Asking ladies to Lake wine is now quite exploded.
IL is merely offered by the gentlemen who sit next to
them; but if you are in a country house,- where the cuts
torn is retained, it would be better breeding to Ulm*
the fashion of the place, rather than by an omission of
what your entertainer considers civility, to prose him,
in the Face of his guests, to be either ig norant or vulgar.
It is considered well bred to take ' t ' he same wine ea
that selected by the person With whurn rill drink ; the
choice being left tu the person highest in rank, or most
advanced in age. When, however, the wine chosen
by him is unpalatable to you, it is allowable to take
that which you prefer, prefacing= it with. "will you per.
trait MC to drink claret, sherry," &e.
At every respectable table you will find silver forks,
being broader, they are in all respects more convenient
than stee for fish or Vegetables. Steel tirrks,except
for carving, are now never placed an the table.
A t family dinners, where the common ho usehohl
bread is used, it should never be cut less than an inch
and a half thick. There is nothing more plebeian than
thin bread at dinner.
Never use your knife La eonvey your filial to your
mouth, under any circumstances; it is unnecessary,
and glaringly vulgar: Feed yourself with a fork us'
spoon, nothing etsc--=a knife is only to be used fur cut
If at dinner you are requested to help tiny one id
sauce, do Ilf , t pour it over the meat or vegetables, but
on one side. If you have to command help a jointdo
not load a person's plata—it is vulgar; also in serving
soup, one ladleful to each plate is v.:Ili:6OM.
Fish should always be helped with a silver fish-slice,
and your own portion of it divided by the fork aided by
a piece of bread.
The application of a knife to fish is likely to destroy
the delicacy df its aavor,' besides which, fish latices are
often acidulated; acids coriode steel, and draw from it
a disagreeable taste. In the North, where lemon or
inegar is very genernliy used for salmon and many
other kinds offish, the objection beemnes rts:Fro *pis ,
