Robberies. --The shoe store of W. E. Johnson & Co. was robbed on Friday night last of between two and three thousand dollars' worth of boots and shoes. As no locks or windows were broken, it is supposed that the thieves secreted themselves in the building and were fastened in without the knowledge of the proprietors. A few nights since the store-room of George T. Moran, living in the western suburbs of the city, was broken into and robbed of about $2,500 worth of bacon. Officer John D. Perrin, having reason to suspect a negro fellow named Jordan, slave of Mrs Mary Hill, as one of the party connected with the theft, arrested him on Saturday and committed him for confinement in the second station house.

When asked by the Mayor how and from whom he obtained the clothing, the prisoner replied that he purchased it from Christian Unkel, a tailor on Broad st., with money that he had made "between times" by putting away coal, going on errands, &c. Subsequently Mr. Unkel appeared in Court and recognized the larger portion of the clothing as some which he had sold at different times to the accused. Further proceedings were postponed till this morning, and the prisoner committed to jail for his appearance. Unkel is liable to heavy fine and forfeiture for selling the clothing to the prisoner without first requiring permission from his master to do so. In an adjoining room to Van Amburg's, occupied by a negro named Spencer, slave of Mrs. Mary Hill, officer Jenkins found a lot of Government bags, two new felt hats, and a large lot of musket caps, cartridges, and powder, the possession of which could not be accounted for. The Mayor continued the matter till this morning.
