WEDNESDAY MORNING, OCT. 23, 1867. Money Market« New York Gold Quotations, Oct. 11............ Ate'4 Ban Francisco Legal Tender rates..........70@70K City and. County. -— Robberies. —During the past ten days the light fingered gentry in our midst have been stimulated to preparatory exertions ior approaching Winter—and as a consequence their efforts have produced the de parture of various parcels of portable property, such as clothes, jewelry, and in some instances cash. An utter disregard of ownership or position marks the result of their operations and they have taken from the careless and the careful, as occasion offered, or want suggested—from the dainty job of stripping a clothes jine to the heavy work of robbing a store. One day last week the clothes-line of Geo. Gans was relieved of its contents by some one evidently desir ous of a simple replenishment of wardrobe and took freshly washed to save labor and time. On last Wednesday night the cabin of Louis Wag ner was entered and robbed of a watch and one hun dred dollars. The evidences in this case indicate an unprincipled acquisitiveness, not even tempered by caution; but let us in charity and congratulation ad mit that he needed money to leave with, and has left, hoping he may be caught and punished, even if a life time shall have intervened. The house of J, Grenier was entered on Friday night last, and robbed of a pistol and a few dollars in money. The intention was evidently to know the contents of the house, for they ransacked it entirely, although but little was taken. On Friday, the 18th, the Myers brothers were paid attention to by the " cracksmen, " and relieved of about $125 worth of property, at their residence. During a temporary absence of John Plancich from his vegetable depot, on last Saturday night, some one entered his cellar, unlocked his treasure drawer and took therefrom what he got hold of. An inventory of hie effects revealed the absence of gold dust, coin, and jewelry, to the aggregate value of near $150. It seems the work of one acquainted, and is not excus able by any accident of contact or temporary waver ing of judgment. It was downright and unjustifiable theft, unawed by fear of retribution and unrestrained by proper reverence of Christianity's emblems—for among the jewelry was a much prized Catholic em blem, and John says he will give fifty dollars to any one who will deliver the jewelry to him and he will ask no questions. But the last one excels them all in audacity, skill, and amount stolen. On Monday night the store of Isaacs Bros., on the corner of Main and Commercial streets, was entered and robbed of gold dust to the value of near two thousand dollars. The thieves ef fected an entrance by taking the brick from the foun dation wall with a pick or chisel. The dirt had been removed from the foundation in preparing for the erection of an adjoining building, and the brick were yet soft from their contact with the damp soil, ena bling the rogues to quickly and noiselessly displace sufficient of the brick to admit a large sized man into the cellar. From thence they gained access to the store-room above, and there obtained the money. Nothing but the money is known to have been taken, and the robbery was not discovered until the store was opened in the morning. It is one of the most extencive robberies of the kind ever committed in this city, and shows the presence in our midst of observing rascals, with ability to plan and nerve and skill to execute—who can " crack a crib " or pillage a till, and treasure none too safe, even when locked in a safe. Fxbst Bate.— C. Walker has now in full operation his depot for the sale of all kinds of choice vegeta bles, groceries, canned goods, fruits, &c., and has re ceived from Marysville, Cal., by Hoag k Bamsdell's Fast Freight Line, a fine assortment of apples and most excellent grapes, which he offers to the trade at reasonable rates. We acknowledge the receipt of a package, labeled ''Compliments of C. Walker," and containing a liberal weight of grapes, which we pro nounce of the best and return our thanks.. Big Tubnip. —J. A. Abbott, Esq., left at our office on Monday last, one of the largest turnips we remem ber to have seen anywhere. It weighed ten-and-a half pounds and measured thirty-two inches in cir cumference one way and thirty inches the other. Mr. Abbott has acres of turnips of but little less size, and thinks it quite probable that even larger ones may be among them. His ranch is on the Payette. Hobse Racing. —This amusement has taken the place of all others for out-door pastime. On Sunday afternoon two races were run by the same horses and Johnny Crowe was twice the winner; and on Monday he was again successful in a race between his mare and More's white horse. On Sunday next a race will be run between Dunbar's mare and Sboenbar's horse, ior a purse of $150. Boise Valley Flous. —We gratefully acknowledge the receipt of a sack of C. Jacobs' extra superfine flour, made at his City Mills, from Boise Valley wheat, and forwarded to ns by the proprietor. A trial of it in our household warrants us in pronounc ing it a very superior article of flour. It is fine, white, lively, and makes bread and hot biscuit equally well. _ The Opening Ball. —John Cody has his fine brick building so near finished that it is to be opened with a grand ball on Friday evening next, the particulars to be seen in an advertisement in this paper. Invi tatio» tickets will be \ssued by the Committee and every exertion used to make the occasion agreeable to all who attend. Retuhnbd. —Judge McBride returned from hiB trip to Lewiston, on Friday evening last He had been holding a term of Court in the First District, in the absence of Judge Kelly. He reports Lewiston a dull plaoe, with little reason to hope for improvement. Removed.— The County Assessor has removed his office to the front end of the Wobld office. Ainslie & Foote have removed their law'office to the frame building adjoining adjoining Andrews it Co.'s brick store, on Wall street. Reward. —F. Shoemaker offers $100 reward for the recovery of his pocket memorandum book and con tents, which he lost in this city on Sunday last For particulars, read the advertisement. Legerdemain. —The Fakir de Bordeaux has again arrived in our city and will give one of his pleasing pleight-of-hand performances on Saturday evening next at Geo. Gans' new Hall on Main street Notice.—T he Tax Collector gives notice in this pa mper to all persons to come forward and pay their tax es and save interest and other costs which will soon be added. .- .= $!_•- , i » / Freight/ —From Umatilla to this place are eight and eight and a half cents, in gold bars.
