FIRST ARRIVALS of SPRING GOODS

Alexander Little, Proprietor,
Begs to return his sincere thanks to the Inhabitants of Ballina and its
Vicinity for the very liberal support which he has received since his
commencement in business. He begs most respectfully to say he has returned
from the different Markets (being the sixth time within seven months) with a
Stock of Goods Unparalleled in Ballina for Variety and Cheapness,
compromising All the Newest Designs Suitable to the Present Season, and begs
to say he purposes visiting the Markets Monthly, so as to select every new
style coming out.
As the unfair principle of making two prices in carried on in a
clandestine form in Ballina, The Western Woollen Hall stands unrivalled,
having gained the confidence of the public by strictly Best Goods, and
selling them on More Moderate Terms than other Houses in Trade; and the
Proprietor is determined to retain that name which the House has justly
merited.

MESSRS. ROBERT AND GEORGE SCOTT, PROPRIETORS,
Beg to solicit the attention of the public to this supply of Summer
Goods, which is the first received for the Season, all of which have been
personally selected by one of the Firm, on the Most Advantageous Terms,, and
will be disposed of at prices which cannot fail to command that large share
of patronage which has distinguished their Establishment during their long
and respectable standing.
Messrs. George and Robert Scott confidently assert that there is no
House in their Trade in this town, of such tried expertice, neither is there
another in which the taste and judgment of the inhabitants of this locality
can be so well suited as in their Establishment. We deem it superfluous to
give a detail of the numerous articles in the various departments, as our
customers will find each extensively supplied.
We beg to direct especial attention to our Stock of CLOTHS, CASSIMERES,
TWEEDS, and VESTINGS, HATS and BONNETS.

description. PAINTING BRUSHES, PLASTER PARIS, ROMAN CEMENT, &c.
R.G. returns thanks to his friends and the public for the kind support
