Housebreaking.

--The shop of Mr. W. Wildt, on Broad street, between 6th and 7th, was feloniously entered on Saturday night last, and over $500 worth of watches, jewelry, &c., stolen therefrom. The fellow entered by removing the transom over the street door, and crawling in through the aperture thus made.--It was a bold undertaking, the door being immediately upon Broad, one of the streets most frequented both day and night. Certainly, burglary is becoming most too common a crime in our city. No arrests have been made of any of the offenders. They are evidently experienced criminals, and the officers must be watchful and always on the alert if they capture them.
