JL taniers and the publicgenerally, that notwithstad
ing the unprecedented sales-at the Three Big Doors

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 tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
ts garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops iu
ear city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
east off garments of farmer 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 several of the concerns in this city, are
the mere teals of New York and Philadelphia slop
*op., and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
burgh public. Purchasers !het Id be on their guard a
gainst these, impesition.s, and they may rely on the fact
*Mane establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as adva.ntag,ceus
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 eity,by competent work
men, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
the "birds of passage" from the shreds and patches of
.saastern slop shops. It will always he 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
% . eny 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

PRAIRIE AND MOUNTAIN LIFE,
Oregon Emigrants.—During our detention among
the upper settlements, before starting out, a constant
source of interest to us was the gathering of people
bound to Oregon. One Sunday morning, about the
usual church hour in a large place, five or six wagons
passed through the town of Westport, and one old man,
with silver hair, was with the party. Women and
children were walking; fathers and brothers were driv
ing louse cattle or managing the heavy teams; and
keen eyed youngsters, with their chins, and rifles on
their shoulders, kept in advance of the wagons with
long strides, looking as if they were already watching
around the corners of the streets for game. There
s as one striking feature about this party which leads
us to name it more particularly. Though travelling
on the Sabbath, and through the little town that was
all quiet and resting from business in reverence of the
day, there was that in the appearance of the people
that banished at once even the remotest idea of pro.
fanation. They were all clean and evidently apparel ,
led in their best Sunday gear. Teeir countenances
t were sedate, and the women wore that mild composure
of visage—so pleasantly resigned—so eloquent of a
'itim spirit—so ready to kindle up into smiles-0)1a
seen more then among church goers, perhaps, d an in
ball room or boudoir. Some of the women carried
books, an tithe prettiest girl held hers open helots her,
as she stepped a little coquettishly through the dust of
the road. Whether she was reading, or using, or
pretending to read, was hard to tell, but the action
had a naive effect, and as she passed she was, no
doubt, much astonished at a strange young gentleman,
who audibly addressed her with—
'Nymph, in thy orisons be all my sins remembered!'
Many other small bodies of these adventurous trav
elers crossed our notice at Independence, Wesport,
and at encampments made in the vicinity of these and
other towns, but in their largest force we saw them just
after crossing the Kansas river, about the Ist of June,
The 'Oregonians were assembled here to the namhee
of six or eight hundred, and when we passed the en
cananment they were engaged in do business of elect•
ieg officers to regulate and conduct their proceedings,
It waa a curious and unaccountable spectacle ta alt
we approached. We saw a large body of men s heel
ing and marchieg about the prairie, describing gnarl,
dons neither recognizable as savage, civil or military,

ing could not reduce to any thing in the shape of maths
On arraiug among them, however, we found they
were going on with their elections, in a manner per
haps old enough. brit very new and quizzical to
The candidates stood up in a row before the constits•
'tents, and at a given signal they wheeled about and
marched otT while the general mass broke after them,
elick-a-ty split," each man forming in behind his favor
ite, so that every candidate flourished a sort of a tail
of his own, and the man with the longest tail was 0 ,
'tasted! These proceedings were euntirarral until a
Captain and a Council of Ten were elected; and, in
deed, if the sccee can be conceived, it must appear as
a curious mingling of the whimsical HI the wild.—
Here was a congregation of rough, bold arid adventua
roma men, gathered hum distant and oppusito sections
of the Union, just foradier an acquaintance with each
other, to last, in all probability, through good or ill for

, expected or thought of ever returning to the States
again. They had with them their wives and chil
dren, and aged and depending relatives. They were
going a ith stout and determined literati to traverse a
wild and desolate region, and take possession of a far
carter of theircountry, destined to become a new and
a strong arm of a mighty nation. These men were
ninni-g about the prairie in long striugs, the leaders
in sport, and for the purpose of puzzling the judges,
doubling and winding in the drollest fashion; su that
the all important business of forming a Government
seemed veryrnueli like the merry school bay game of
`snapping the whip." It was really very featly to tied
the candidates fur tire solemn "Zoencil of Ten' runsev
eral hundred vards away, to show off the length of
their tails, and then cut a half circle, so as to turn and
admire their longitudinal popularity in ezlenso them
acres ! 'Running for office' is certainly performed in
a more literal fashion on the prairie, than we see the
same business performed in town: To change the
order of a town election, though, for once, it might
prove an edifying exhibition to eee a May or and Alder
man start front the town pump and run around the
court house square, the voters falling in behind, and the
rival tickets running the other way, while a band in
the middle might tune up for both parties, playing 'O,
what a long tail ont cat's gut which we surmise
somepopular composer may have arraeged fur such
After passing them here we never saw the Oregon
ians again. They elected a young lawye r , of some
ernineuee, as we were told, named Burner, as their
captain, and engaged an old mountaineer, known
Captain Gant,as their guide through the mountains to
Fort Hall. Several enactments were mad, and agreed
to, one of which was called up to be rescinded; some
thing of an excitement arose in regard to it. The law
made was, that no family should drive along more than
three bead of stock for each member composing it,
and this bore hard on fiamilies that had brought with
them cattle in great numbers. This dispute resulted
in a split of the large body into two or three diviaions,
and so they moved on, making disdain encampments
all the way. Capt. Gant was to receive a dollar a
head from the company, numbering about a thousand
souls, for his services as guide; but a few more such
expeditions following in the same trial, will sewn irr.-
print such a highway through the wilderness to Ore

We left them here about the last of May, and en.

From here, all the way to Fort Lararnee. we found
the now-deeply .worn road strewn with indications of

But one death seemed to have occurred among them,
and this was far mat under the 'mountains. Here the
loose riders of our moving camp gathered one morn
ing to examine a rude pyramid of stones by the road
side. The stones had been planted firmly in the earth,
and those on the top were substantially placed, so that
the wolves, whose marks were evldent about the
had nut been able to disinter the dead. Od one stone,
larger than the rest, and with a flat side, was rudely

fidently supposed them full four weeks in our rear,
and their rapid progress argues well for the success of
their enterprise. Ott the rock we found printed—
