FHat:r Pxrac'TtC.-A few days ago two indi

address, applied at one of the numerous places on
Customhouse street, where a tin s:gn swingingin
from the balcony plainly indicates that in.the ta:
terior there were furnished rooms to rent, and
alter being shown through the house, expressed
their desire to rent the ground floor of the build
Ing, which was furnished in the best and richest
at) le that the city aflords. The price asked by the
landlady was ateenty-five dollars per month for
two rooms, a parlor and bedroom, which the two
chums foned very elegant and suitable in every
respect. They, however, thought that richer win
dow curtains and a few ornaments on the mantel
pieces and in other portions of the apartments
wi uld be desirable. In order to obtain them they
utfl, red the landlady to pay her monthly one hun
