JAMES McGREGOR, Tancred Street. 12 2342 WAR WITH RUSSIA.—At the present juncture it would be difficult for any one excapt 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 fall information as to what is transpiring between the two countries may indicate that the political breeze is blowing harmlessly past; or, it may be the awfol 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. Now is the time, therefore, to lay in a Block 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 ana other materials necessary to a wellequipped tailoring establishment, which re are prepared to offer at unusually low prices for cash. Regarding style and fit, it is almost needless for ns to repeat what everybody knows, viz , that by our scientific mode of cutting, and the care exer* cited by ns in fitting the figure, a mis-fit i* an impossibility.— Craighead and Co,, Merchant Tailors, Tancred street.
