Hometlme between tho hours of 1 and
4 o'clock, Sunday morning, two or more
daring villains entered the business
Iiouro of Messrs. Farkor & Phlllis, on tho
Ohio Levee, corner of Tenth street, ex
pecting no doubt, that they would be
well paid for their risk and labor. Tho
fact had got abroad that Ciptalu Parker
was paymaster to (ho hands of the steam
er Underwriter, and It was conjectured
therefrom that a considerable sum of
money was deposited In his safe.
The first thing tho burglars did after
effecting an entrance Into the house was
to darken tho glass doors in rear, that
their light might not attract attention
from tho outside. This they did by
hanging a largo flag which they found at
hand In tho storo room across
the doors. This done, they be
stowed their attention upon tho safe.
By an expert use of the implement
with which they wero provided, they cut
a hole Into tho face of tho safo door, and
Into the orifice thus opened they emp
tied a considerable quantity of powder.
An explosion, which none of tho neigh
bors heeded, soon afterwards followed,
and the contents of the safe were placed
within reach. How tho rascals swore at
their Ill-luck, and cursed Parker A Phil
Is when they found out that there was
no money in tho safe, beyond a small
amount of sliver change, wo may noyer
know; butitisquitereasonable to suppose
that that prudenco In the firm that sug
gested a use of the bunk sa fe instead of
their own as u keeper of their currency,
was quite heartily damned. But the
burglars did not leave -ntlrely empty
haudedafter all. The change, amount
ing to about six dollais, and a portion of
Capt, Parker's deceased wife's jewlery.fel1
into their hands and word carried ofl'.
As every article of this Jewelry admits
of ready Identification, it is to be hoped
that it will lead to the detection of the
Tho funny phase of the nlfiilr, and one
that does not speak highly of the skill
of the burglars Is that the pafo was not
locked! They did all their chiseling,
drilling and blasting upon a safe which a
smurt burglar would have opened by
turning tho knob. This fact, and the
further fact that the safe was undoubted
ly robbed under the impression that it
contained a large amount of money be
longing to the Underwriter, lead us to
believe that at least one of the burglars

Mr.Gilmore, tho watchman on Messrs.

ing of a valise in a rather secluded por
tion of tho wharf boat, that had been bro
ken open. The clothing It contained,
with several letters addressed to JameB
H. Ileager, wero scattered about tho
From this circumstance the suspicion
has been aroused that tho owner of tho
valiso had been knocked on the head and
tumbled into tho river, by somo of the
scoundrels who at times rendezvous in
our city. The moro reasonable conjec
ture Is that tho valise was stolen from
some steamboat and carried to tho wharf
boat and there rifled of Its valuablo con
tents. Mr. Vincent, going home a few nights
ago, lit the midst of a darkness that
could be felt, stepped oil' the high side
walk, at a point where the railing is mis
sing, and "shook himself up" qulto

that It became necessary to call a physi

not question this; but when ho asks us to
believe that tho gentleman to whom it
