rho public may rest assured that fill articles offered at
ids store are maufaetured from I•'RESI.I GOODS, pur
ihased in tha Eastern markets this spring and made in-
A garments by Pitttsburgh workmen.
In conseptence of the multiplicat ion of slop shops in
ear city, filled with pawn brokers clothes and the musty,
sat off garments of former seasons, from the eastern ci
ties, the public should be cautious to ascertain the char
acter of the establishment; in which they aro invited to
purchase, before they part with their money. The enti
tles offered at se%eral 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 Pius
burgh public. I' arcitaiers .hof 'd be on their guard a
gainst these imp.,sitioas, and they may rely on the fact
that no estahlishrnent that adver,ises eastern made Clo
thing, can give as good an article or as advantageous
Wirgaill . a as can be hurl at the "Three Big Doors."
'rho public will please remember that all the subscri
ber's garments are made in this city, by ccmwetentwork
coan, and not gathered up like the goods now offered by
"birch of passazc" from the shreds and patches of
eastern slop shops. It will always be 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
any_other establishment.
He would again return his thanks to his friends and
the public for the unprecedented patronage bestowed
aspen his establishment, and believing that they have
found it to their advantage to deal with him, he would

•There is no darkness like the cloud of mind.
On Griefs vain eve—tbe blindest of the blind!
Which may not—dare net see—but turns aside
To blackest shade3—nor will endure a guide."
There are dark hours in the history of every human
being—periods of despondency and gloom, when life
seems without a solitary ray of brightness, and all the
future is shrouded in "mist and melancholy." At
such times the spirit is depressed—the soul within is,
"involved in shadows," and it is in vain that we turn
and torn, and endeavor to avoid the ominous thoughts
that crowd upon the brain. They force themselves
upon U 3, and all our efforts to shake off the despair of
the moment are idle and fruitless. Phantom shapes
flit before the imagination—dismal forebodings crowd
upon the mind—evil thoughts obtrude upon us, and
fora time we feel miserable. The aspect of the exter
nal world sometimes produces this disposition, and
thus we may infer that suicides are more common
during periods of protracted storm, than m less dreary
seasons. Who has not felt the cheering influence of a
burst of sunshine—an angel glance, as it were, from
the blue skies above us, like• a ray of prosperity amid
the darkness and despair of a long season of vicissi ,,
tude? There are indeed few who are not influenced
' in tone of mind and feeling by long periods of gloomy
land unpleasant weather, and the heavens shut out from
the human vision, and na cheerful object to call our
t':o•rghts from the earthliness, the dreariness of the
'.any,—there are few who have rut in journeying
dirt:ll2.h life felt Reason tottering from her throne for a.
moment, and the Demons of Crime and Despair as=
sum" the mastery,—few who have not looked with
shuddering soul into the shadowv future, and hesita
ted upon the brink of that most pitiable of all crimes,
self-murder. This to some mar seem a wild and im
probable theory! But call up the past, gentle reader,
and ask if among its "faded hours," no dark and dread
ful record con be discovered?—no moment when life
itself seemed a burthen and a curse, and the present
worse than the mysterious future? If such record
may be traced, down upon your knees and thank God,
that the bitter cup was permitted to pass by—that
the demon did trot master the better spirit within—
that the faith and hope of the human soul were able
to triump over its sadness and despair. Audit it may
not—if you have been spared the "blackness and
darkness" that I have attempted to describe—if thrt
waters of life have nut been embittered by gall and
wormwood—if the coming hours have never seemed
pregnant with shame and anguish, beyond the power
of endurance, still down and return thanks to the
Divine Source of all that is benificent, that you have
been saved from such apprehended torment—such
wretchedness of soul—such madness of despair The
curse or our first parents has thus far pressed upon
I you lightly. Be gtatefui and invoke for the time to
come the same exemption from the shadowy, the des- ,
pairing, the insane, and tr-o criminal. Who may tell
what a day—what an hour may bring forth! Who
point out the tree that may Lo riven by the next bolt
from Leuven! II ha the form that may be laid low
by the next Rash of i ightnine !
But to our story. It was a gloomy afternoon in the
month of August, that res dews, discontented, and una
ble to become interested in any volume at command, I
sallied forth, scarcely knowing whither or with what.
uhject• I felt irritrble and gloomy, and the more I
exerted myself to shake MT te evil spirit, the more
did the sombre and the sad hover over and oppress
It is the weather.' T said to myself; or perhaps I
em not well—or pet haps some misfortune is at hand,
and this 'casts its shadow bef•re.'
And then a crowd of unhappy recollections passed.
before me, and discolored and distorted my diseased
ordarkened fancy. Thus I wandered on in any mood bat
one of contentment or joy, until I found myself in the
immediate vicinity of a grave-yard. Scarcely consci
ous of my course, I slowly ;iscenckd the few stepsbe
fote the gateway, raised the latch, and was among the
tombs. Thought seemed to assume a still more shad.
owy aspect, and as I moved slowly on, glancing upon
one tombstone, and then upon another, and wondering
within myself the history of the perishing bodies be
low, the vain world, with all its gaieties and follies—
its temptations and its trials. passed before the eye of
my mind. I stood with the mementos of the dead a
round mu, and my thoughts wandered into the world
of spirits. Ihe ghosts of the departed flitted beforrs
me—the impalpable shapes of an eternal life—and
thus at one moment I beheld tho bright wings, and
heard the glad voice of a seraph. and at another saw
dark and flaming pinions, and heard shrieks of agony,
groans of despair. and imprecations of blasphemy.—
Now the ghost of a dead relative appeared, and, with
looks of kindness and recognition, beckoned me us
snony g roves, blue skies, and flashing water falls: and
now th e ghostly shape ofsome well remembered crim
inal, some gory murderer, passed before my excited
mind, appalling and terrifying. I felt that I was a
wake, and in full life; but my mental faculties seemed
in some degree beyond my control; the spirtual had
obtained the mastery over the physical and intellect
ual, and I lingeredinidwav between sleeping and wak
ing existence. A sort o f - mental dream was upon
me. I hind given way too fully to the influence of tho
dark hour; hard yielded too readily to the moodiness of
my nature; had lost in some degree the control as well
of my mental as of my physical being.
Thus tt was when, starting fromp the temporary
stupor, I felt a hand upon my shoulder, In an instant
the mist faded from my eves. I turned and recogni
zed the features elm: old and much respected citizen.
For a moment we gazed upon each other with looks of
surprise and enquiry, as if wondering at such a meet
ing, and in such a place. I frankly confesssed the
condition of my thoughts, and narrated the almost in
voluntary manner in which I had visited the grave
"Beware," exclaimed the aid man "beware of tho

I looked somewhat ab.iislited, for the manner rather
