Washington, D.C., August 25-- The police records here abound with cases of robberies, large and small, in disreputable dens, both of soldiers and others who frequent such places, get intoxicated, put themselves in the power of loose women, &c.

A discharged soldier named John Slavin had four $100 notes taken from him at the house of Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, on I street between Eighth and Ninth, two hundred dollars of which were subsequently found by police in the mouth of Wm. Lacey, and the other $200 secreted on the person of Kate McCormick, which parties were in the house at the time of the robbery.
