WAR WITH RUSSIA.—At the present juncture it would be difficult for any one exe.pt 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 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 oOt 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 stock 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 ‘ tot ns to repeat what everybody knows, viz , that by our scientific mode of ousting, and the oarefexercised by us in filling the figure, a mis-fit i« an impossibility. —Cbaighead AHO Co., Wetehant lailors, Tapered street, '
