Marceron, Capitol llill, who (we are informed) is prepared to give instructions in such fancy and ornamen tal work on vary reasonable terms It ia but jjstice to unobtrusive merit. to call attention to tho?e wjrks, and as the bonnet in paitic jlar is likely to escape ordinary inspection we re commend it to lady vi itors a? worthy their notice, and its retiring fabricator us deserving their patronage. hcP.BXRY?On Saturday evening last a ttranger was met coming oat if the boarding bocse of Mis E T l'avall, on Pennsylvania avenue, and being asked what ho wanted re turned an ovaaive reply. Suspicions being ex cited that all wai not tight, Mrs. Duval! was informed of the fact; but on looking thrcugb the rooms nothing was found to be disturbed On Sunday morning, however. Mr. Je*e!le, of the firm of R. II. Jewelle 1 Co., who boards in tbe hou3e, found that his pocket book had been robbed of about $io?one $10 note of the Bank of the Valley ot Virginia, and the bal ance in gold Tue pocketbeok was in the drawer of a dreeing bureau which was locked and the key kept in a small drawer on the top of the bureau. Very fortune ely Mr J. tad paid out a large amount of money just before night el-e the r< ?ue would have fared better tbaa he did Our boarding hoiue keepers would do well tr base a sharpe>e about tbetn. as our city at the present time is infested with a gang of men who make their living in tho A'))ve way "Thais np ?
