JAMES McGREGOR, Tancred Street 12 2342 WAR WITH RUSSIA.—At the present juncture it would be difficult for any one except a prophet of the highest rank to say whether or not the present negotiations between England and Russia will lead to a general European war, or whether they will end in smoke. The absence of full information as to what j is transpiring between the two countries may indicate that the political breeze is blowing harmlessly past; or, it may be the awful silence which generally precedes a storm. In either case, we ought to be prepared for the worst. If a general war breaks out the price of nearly every article of commerce will rise. Among other commodities wool and labor will go up. Kow is ti e time, therefore, to lay in a slock of clothing, before the general advance begins. In order that we may not be caught napping we have just purchased a Splendid Assortment of Winter Tweeds and other materials necessary to a wellequipped tailoring establishment, which we are prepared to offer at unusually low prices for cash. Regarding style and fit, it is almost needless for us to repeat what everybody knows, viz , that by our scientific mode of cutting, and the care exercised by ns in fitting the figure, a mia-fit is an impossibility.— Craighead and Co., Merchant Tailors, Tancred street.
