--On Saturday, last between one and two o'clock, the jewelry store of Mr. C. C. Walter
, near the corner of Broad and 6th streets, was forcibly entered and robbed of about forty gold and silver watches
, several fine bracelets, and two or three gold chains, valued at about $15,000 or $20,000.--This during act was committed while Mr. Walfer
had gone to dinner, the thieves making an entrance through the back door by forcing out the staple which fastened it in the inside.
A number of the watches stolen belonged to individuals who had left them there to be repaired, and some of them were of the most superior quality.
This is the second or third time attempts have been made to rob Mr. W's store, and only on Saturday week some thief stole from him a very valuable double-case gold watch.
This misfortune falls heavily upon him, and it is sincerely hoped his property may be recovered and the scoundrel who perpetrated the theft brought to justice.
