Robbery.

--While the neighbors and firemen were at the fire which destroyed Hooper's coopershop on Thursday night, the store-room in the basement of Mrs. Catherine Carston's residence, a few doors beyond, was forcibly entered and robbed of about two hundred dollars worth of provisions, among which was a cooked ham. The thief, who probably played the incendiary in order to draw off the attention of families near by, took from the window one of the shutters, then hoisted it and carried off the stolen goods.
