Attempted Burglary. --About one o'clock yesterday morning an attempt was made to break into the grocery store of Capt Wm English, at the corner of Leigh and 2d streets. The thief was working at the rear door and had succeeded in wrenching off the padlock which secured it from the outside, when he was discovered by a servant woman sleeping on the premises, who gave the alarm, which frightened him off. While the burglarious operation was going on a man was observed on the opposite side of the street, and as soon as the negro woman who gave the alarm made her appearance he walked up to her and with an oath remarked that she had spoilt the whole business, for he was watching the thief and as soon as he succeeded in getting inside the store it was his intention to come over and bag him before he could get off. It is believed that he was an accomplice.
