Daring act.

--Yesterday morning, as a lady residing on the western suburbs of the city, was passing along Jackson street, with a bundle of finished work, on her way to the Clothing Bureau, she ws met by a white ruffian, who snatched the clothing from her and started off in the direction of the old Academy building. The cries of the lady brought two gentlemen to her assistance, who speedily started in pursuit of the thief, and ran him until he dropped the goods. --Unluckily, neither of them were armed, or they might have shot the daring highwayman.
