Foster & Co.'s, sustained a provoking loss.  His bedroom is in the third story of the building occupied by the above firm.  Unlocking it a few days since he found that some worthless thief had stolen his trunk, which was filled with clothing, letters, photographs and other valuable articles.  This is the second time that room has been entered and a theft committed.  Not long since a fine3 new suit of clothes belonging to Mr. Matt.

Threlkeld, Esq., corner of High and Bellevue streets.  A number of the members of the press, upon invitation, congregated at 7 o'clock at the News office, and from there repaired in carriages to the residence of the bride.
