ROBBERY - Last night about 11 o'clock some persons effected an entrance into the clothing store of H. J. CULVER, by means of removing a part of the back window. Geo. RUSSELL went by while they were in the store, but supposed that Mr. METIER was in there. They took three shirts, three hats and three pairs of shoes. Mr. CULVER values the goods at about $100. The money drawer was taken out but only contained a few pennies. There were three tramps in town the evening before and it is generally supposed that they were the guilty parties.
