TH E subacriber would respectfully inform his ma
toarirs and the public7enerally, that notwithstad
leg the unprecedented sales at the 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 west of the mountains. - -
The public may rest assured that all articles offered at
his store are manfactuied from FRESH GOODS, pur
abased in the Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
, Inconsequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
air city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
oast off garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
actor of the establishments in which they are invited to
parchase, before they part with their tnouey. The arti
cles offered at several of the concerns in this city, are
the msrs offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers ahot.ld be on their guard a
gainst these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article mast aisfa.ntageous
bargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subacri
ber'sgarmentsare made in this city, by competeo t work
men, and nut gathered up like the gOoda 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 Doers"
tome 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
',lron his establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantage to deal with him, he would

Whate'cr our lot, where'er we TIMM-
Where'er bourn— (Echo)
As truant mem'ry fondly turns
To childhood's cherished " mountain borne."
Dear sister strike the toni again!
It brings to mind the laughing holing
Of boyhootPs youthful visions, when
Our mountain path was strewed with flowers,
As dewy twilight gently throws
Her mantel o'er retiring day,
Our mountain hoMe, in sweet repose;
Inspires the minstrel's roundelay.
Hark! hark! we hear the swgiling strain;
Receding far-Anow drawing near,
Ah! *hal unites the kindred chain

DEATH OF FRlNCOL3,—lnquiry seeming to be et•
pecially alive in regard to one unhappy occurrence that
has been mentioned as having taken place during calf
travel, it may be as well to relate the death of poor'
little Francois at once.
On (the 18th of July last we encamped about mid
day under the "Red Buttes," havinetnade oar cross
ing of the north fork of the Platte, end being then in
high spirits, on account of ottr near approach to thee
mountains, the glittering snots ttf which, like fleecy'
apora on the fur off horizon, we had now seen for set •
oral days. Forming camp at mid-day on this occasion
was an O.Ccount of our having met an old trader by the
name of Vasquez ; who was traveling inward to Fart
John, at tat arnce, with a large number uf pack animals
laden with robes and skins, We halted to elethanget
greeting, many of both parties having known each ode
cr of old, and the afternoon teas wearing pleasantly
away, when smiles were soddenly exchanged for deep
solemnity, and a gloom spread round among us, that
had hitherto been a stranger in our comp. One of She
the letters designed for this paper that never came to
hand, was written at this encampment. The epistler
was of the funniest and liveliest kind, aiming to assure
friends at home of our complete safety, and how well
every thing vras going with us, dwelling upon our free•
dom from molestation or danger, our capacity to ,set
peril at defiance, and our happy escape from accident
or peril of any kind.
The red wax and seal was scarcely Cold upon the
letter, when—Bang—whir-r-izz-z—a man's i" oi c •
exclaiming., "Great God"—followed by mare juvenile
accents of pain and hot ror enunciating. "Mon diee--.
mcn dieu!" gave all Cars warning of some frightful
harm having occurred.
'What is it I—'Who's deadl'—'What's the matter?'
were the rapid inquiries of people jumping up and
running in all directions. The next instant all eyes
were directed to the spot where the accident occurred,
by a still !realer voice calling hurl iedly f.,r "Doctor
Tilghman !"—and there lay poor little Francois Cleni•-
ent in the arms of Sir William Stewart, with the blood
gushing in torrents from his left breast.

upon the spot, coolly and skilfully performing all that
could be done; but the'wound in the breast of Francois,
was nne over which no science could hold control. All
left to be done was but to see how long the spark of
life could be made to linger vet within the mutilated
frame: and so desperate was the vcound through and
through the vital region of the body, that it seemed to
us all strange that the boy immived ten minutes after
Francois was the youngest brother of Antoine Clem..
ent, one of the first amongst the best hunters known
upon the Western prairies, but of him we shall have
occavion to speak elsewhere: The boy was a favorite
with Captain Stewart and generally rode with him as
page or protege. Ire was but fifteen years olds the
pet of his mother at home, and a forward, smart boy st
every thing that pertained to hunting or forest life. Oa
one occasion, young Walker of St. Louis, an active end
spirited amateur hunter, was out from camp after a
short tailed deer, when Ire found Francois striving to
outstrip him in pursuit of the game.
"Why, Frank, what are you doinghere 1" said Wal
'l'm after that deer,' replied the boy.
'Youafter that deer! why you could hardly hit tbo
side of a barn at twenty yards, if it was tied for you.'
' Je ne seas pas' said Frank, 'but may be I couldn't
hit you at a hundred 1"
Such a youth was Francois Clement—too forward
for his years or place, which fact in a great measure
led to the sad catastrophe of his demise.
Sitting outside of a tent, he saw a gun inside, which
he took hold of by the muzzle, seeking to draw it out
under the stretched canrass, arid whil in the act, some
obstruction touched the lock ,diseborgi ng the instrument
and driving an ounce bail through the lower lobe of poor
Frank's left lung!
It was an hour before sunset, and when that hour
was fading to an instant he was still reclining apt» ibr.
Tilghmates knee. A prophetic bat chilling
gcncc seemed to kindle in the boy's eye, as if just im
parted by en ice-bolt in the heart, when his gaze turn
ed from the darkening west to the doctor's face, and he
'Lay me down, Doctor, lay tne down and lei . me
rest: 1 am dead ! I am dead !'
The doctor endeavored to assure him that be should
still be calm and ehetish hope, hut this cold exmviction
of sudden death seemed to have frozen into the poor
'Men Dieu ! je suis more je gels more!—O,llfox
Dien!" he exclaimed, burying his face from the sinking'
He was born in St. Charles, Me., ofFrench parents,
and always spoke in that language when most affected,
It is known that two Catholic priests, besides several
lay brothers. accompanied us to the mountains—mis
sionaries, going to settle with the Flathead tribe.—
Father De Vos came to poor Frank soon after ibis ac
cident, and never left him again until his last breath of
mortality had passed away, save for a few momenta
when he went ta robe himself for administering the ex
treme Unction. The presence of this good o!‘i man
rendered the scene one of deep and affecting solemnity,
IVith calm, impressive persuasion he banished wild
ness and fear from the boy's heart, and t anwdjhia theta
an happiness and heaven. Then flew the heart of
Francois homeward to his mother, and all big remain
ing words were fur her.
