Shop Lifting is of such common occurrence now, that clerks in stores have to be constantly on the lookout to prevent appropriations of goods at every hour of the day.--Yesterday a modest looking young woman "lifted" a pair of gaiters from a store on Broad street while the clerks were engaged with other customers, and made her exit before the lost goods were missed. It is not improbable that the police will have this matter to attend to, as the lady is known to the loser.
