Improvements.

--The old building on 13th street, next door to "Our House," in former years occupied by P. Devereux, currier, afterwards respectively used as the office of the Whig, Morning Mail, Penny Post, and National American newspapers, and occupied latterly by Simpson & Bagnall as a baker's shop, is undergoing the process of dismemberment, to give place to an elegant and costly four-story brick edifice, intended for the occupancy of Mr. O. H. Chaikley, the popular leather dealer. The owner of the site, as also of the adjacent tenements on either side, Mr. Samuel S. Cottrell, is a public spirited citizen, and has evinced a taste in improving his landed possessions that other property-holders would do well to emulate.
