Robbery by footpads.

--A gentleman from King William county, Va., was knocked down, severely beaten, and then robbed, by two footpads, who met him on Thursday night, about ten o'clock, near the intersection of 17th and Broad streets. Highway robbery, accompanied by violence, is a species of amusement that is becoming more common than proper. Our city contains a goodly number of cut-throats at the present time, judging from the police reports.
