In conseluence of the multiplication of slop shops in

east off gar.nents offerm3r 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
purchase, before they part with their money. The arti

the more offals of New York and Philadelphia slop
shops, and sent out here to bo palmed off on the Pius
burgh public. Purchasers shot-'d be on their guard a
gaitist these impositions, and they may rely on the fact
that no establishment that advertises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as !rood an article or as advantageous
Yargains as can be had at the "Three Big Doors."
The public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garm2nts are made in this 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
raaintnin 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

A MANIAC BRIDEGiTGOOM
A TM - OWN/ILT TOLD LOVX STORY Or Trslos
Perfectly overcome by the heat of an Italian evening
at Venice, I quitted the bustling gayety of St. Mark's
Place, for the quiet of a gondola, and directing the
man to shape his course flit the Island of Lodi, (a
narrow strip of land dividing the "Ingunit," . or shal
lows beyond the city, from the open sea,) seated myself
on the prow of a vessel, with a firm determination to
make the most of the flimsy wafts of air that now and
then ruffled the surface of the still dark watele.
Nothing intercepting my views of the distant city,
whose mifhty buildings glowed beneath the long red
rays of the setting sun, save, occasionally, when a
market boat, on its return, floated lazily by us, or the
hull of some tell merchantman shot out for an instant
the dome of a magnificent church, or the deep red
brickwork of the glimmering far-offlights in the holism
ns, one after another, they seemed to start out , of the
bosom of the deep; and as that quiet hour the repose—
the peculiar repose of Venice—seemed mellowed into
perfect languor of the atmosphere. The sounds of
laughter, or snatches of rude songs that now and then
Caine over the waves, instead ofinterrupting, invested
with fresh charms the luxurious silence of the moment.
We touched the natrow strip of sand that forms the
beach of that little island, and stepping ashore, I en
joyed the only particle of green sward in all Venice.
I walked backwards and forwards for some time,
thinking of England and English friends, (for at such
hours the mind wanders to distant scenes and old cus
toms)wi [hoot interruption, until a slight rustling among
the bushes of the island reminded me that I was net
the only tenant of the garden of the Lido, and looking
through the fast gathering darkness. 1 discovered an
aged female pacing the smooth walk near, apparently .
lost in contemplation.
fly curiosity was rather excited by the presence of
en old woman in such an unfrequented place; but the
lesze of the evening prey anted me observing. her with
any doses of accuracy, and as I fared to dise.rb has advancing too near, I could only geese at her few
tures. At last the dwarf trees on the island " began
LO glittir on the climbing moon," end I saw the; she
u.ss wt.sepiog bitterly. Her thick, gray tresses were
braided over a face that had evidently once been beau
tiful, and there was a dignity ten} propriety in her de
meaner, and a native nobleness of expression in her
, countenance, which told me that I leaked on no corn
' men person. She continued her solitary walk for some
time, occasionally pausing to look op to the stars tints
now gemmed the clear glowing firmament, or to pluck
a few dead leaves from a little rosebush that grew In me
obscure corner of the garden, until a thought seemed
suddenly to strike her, and hastening to the shore,
she stepped into a small gondola that was is waiting,
and rapidly disappeared.
Oil my return to Venice, I mentioned the circum
stances to my "cicerone," or guide, a remarkably intel
ligent fellow, end much to my astonishment, he solved'
the mystery of the lonely lady to me immediately. As
her history is one of great clerotion and misfurtune, It
may, perhaps merit repetition.
It appeared then from the statement of the "cieer
ote," that the elderly lady was an English woman, who
had once been the "beauty" of the gay circles of Ven
ice. She had there met a student in astronenaye and
whether it was his lonely mystic life. the charm of his
conversation and person, or scientific attainments, that
won her, I know not, but be gained her affectioas,and
it is still remembered Ly those acquainted with her at
the same time, that her attention to him was se intense
ly passive in its devotion es to seem almost unearthly;
arid that very Lido, now the scene of heraffliction, was.
once the favorite spot for their early love greetings.
He was a strange, wild creature, that student; his
family were natives of a distant land, end he had trav
eled to Italy to devote himself, body and mind to his
favorite pursuit. From the after testimony of one of
his friends, it appeared that in ehildlicrod, e he had been
attacked with temporary elerangemerit, and his ex
traordinary application to the mysterious, exciting
study of astronomy had increased this infirmity in a
most extraordinary and terrible manner. fit times
he was haunted by a vision of a woman of dleensting
ugliness, who seemed to pursue end torment him every
where. In a few hour's, delirium, end sometimes rag
in..' madness, would ensue from his hallucination r and
though he regularly recovered free from the terrible
creation of his mire!, it was with a constitution more
and more decayed by each sue:es...ashes ravage of his
disorder. As he advanced, beaver -et, to manhood,
these violent and destructive attacks became less end
less frequent; and at the time that he mot with the
beautiful English lady, though his conscience seemed
to tell him he was no companion fir a delicate woman,
he tried to persuade himself that his constitution had
at last mastered his imagination, and that he was as fit
for society as his less excitable fellow marl. And he
thought there was much excuse ter him, for who could
withstand the quiet, vet intense affection efthe English
woman? Who could resist the temptation of listening
to her sweet, rrusictri voice, of watching her sad, soft
blue eyes, or of her fascinating conversation T She
was so devoted, so gentle, so enthusiastic on his few:tr
ite subject; so patient of his peevishness and melancho
ly, so considerate of his enjoyments, so eon:freeing in
his afflictio is, he must sorely have been without heart
or feeling to have been coldly calculating on posslbi,.
ities at such a time.
Ho schooled himself to think that it we, his solitary
life that had AO affected his faculties, end that a come
panion--and such a companion as his betrothed--
would drive out all remains of his diaonler, even sup
posing it to be still existing. In short, the eloquent
pleading of the heart triumphed over the still, small
whisper of conscience; the wedding day was fixed r iestri
it was remarked, with surprise that the nearer it 114)..
preached the more melancholy did Volpurno become.
However, the ceremony was performed with great
splendor, and the bridal party set out to spend the day
on the main land, where the friends of the bride were
to say farewell befere she proceeded with her husband
on the wedding tour. They were chatting merrily in
the little hotel at Mestri, on the main land, when tiser
were horrified by suddenly hearing sounds of &entire
laughter, followed by wild shrieks of agony, and the
student rushed into the room, his frame convulsed with
horror, and a drawn sword in his hand, as if pursuing
something u few yards before him. with an expression
of mingled fury and despair Before the horrified
guests could interfere, ho had jumped from rho win
dow, and with the same shrieks oflaughtet, sped across
the country in pursuit of his phantom enemy.
Assistance was at hand; he was instantly followed;
but with supernatural strength he held on his wild
course. He was occasionally seen, as ho paused for
instant to strike furiously in the air, and his cries of
anguish were sometime s borne by the wind to the ears
ef his pursuers; but they never gained en him, andun-
less he neared a village, and was stopped by the inhale
items, his capture seemed impracticable. At last, as
night grew on, he sunk exhausted at a lone hovel by
the wayside, and the bride and her party came up with
the maniac bridegroom. But the stern lit was past
and gone, and he was lifted insensible upon a coarse
pallet in the•hut. The Enellsh woman sat by his side,
and bathed hr. , temples; and watched his deep, long
slumber, from the rise of the moon to the bright ad
sent of day. And thus passed the bridal night of the
heiress and the beisury,
Towards the gone , down of the sap, Volparno be..
came conscious, and though the deleiitur, had left him,
the agony of his situation allowed noieposo to his joie
red, disordered nt-rres. His remorse was terrible ta
behold; over and over again did ho heap curses en his
selfishness in drawing an innocent, trusting weepers in
to such a labyrinth of suffering. All the repeated as
surances of herforgiveziess, of her happiness at kis re
