--The house of Messrs. Hablisston & Brothers was burglariously entered on Sunday night by some scoundrel, who broke open one of his fire-proof safes, and turned another up, poured a quantity of gunpowder into the key-hole, and tried to blow it to pieces. He did not succeed, however, in his purpose, and left the premises without stealing anything which the firm have missed. He must have been alarmed in some manner.
