Another Daring robbery.

--Our readers have by this time become prepared for hearing of almost any sort of diabolism; yet the story we are about to tell of a robbery which has been committed in this city will stagger their credulity. On Friday night last, the house of Dr. William M. Hammond, on Eighth, between Grace and Franklin streets, was burglariously entered and robbed of every valuable article upon which the burglars could lay their hands. They entered the house through the window in the basement of the rear of the house, taking out the window and leaving a clear track for escape in case of detection in the act. Among the goods stolen, were the Doctor's valuable surgical instruments, a guitar, a set of Britannia ware, chandeliers, a number of fancy articles of furniture or ornaments, caps, capes, laces, and, indeed, a most varied assortment of articles which it is not necessary to name. The entire loss of Dr. H. is estimated to be not less than one thousand dollars. Some of the articles taken, it will be next to impossible to replace at any price. We trust that the perpetrators of this robbery will be caught before long. This is not their first, and will not be their last offence against the laws; but justice may overtake them yet.
