tlartra and the publicgeneraliy, tliat notwithstad
ing the u•rpracedented 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 maufactured from FRESH GOODS, pur
chased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in
to garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In consequence of the multiplication of slop shops in
oar city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and themusty,
.east offgarments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
meter 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 offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to be palmed off on the Pitts
kirgh public. Purchasers Ethel Id be on their guard a
t these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
ithainoestaNishment that adverti=es eastern made Clo
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
ipew'a garmentsare made in air 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 Doers"
hale obtained for ftu-nishing a superior style of CLO
THING in every respect, and at prices below those of
-111 g other establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and

Never have I claimed any other tights than those of a
French citizen, and never shall I have any other desire
than to see the whole people; legally Convoked, freely

fitting. Being the issue of a family which owes its
elevation to the suffrages of the nation, I should belie
my origin and my nature, and even common sense;
did I not admit the sovereignty of the people to be the
fundamental basis of every political organization. My
anterior actions and words have been in accordance
with this sentiment. If I have not been understood;

it for those who hold democratic opinions to complaint

shall never be said of me that, during exile or captivi
