Hog stealing. --Henderson Johnson and his wife were before the Mayor yesterday to answer the charge of receiving two hogs, stolen from Mr.Angel, knowing the same to have been stolen. Mr. Angel traced his lost "porkers" to the cook shop of the prisoners, where he found their dead and mutilated carcases.--Johnson proved that he purchased the swine of a free negro, and that they were delivered between 1 and 5 o'clock in the morning. The parties were remanded for a further hearing.

Horse thieves on the Rampage. --On Monday night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, the attention of Mr. William John Clarke, residing at the corner of Eighteenth and Broad streets, was attracted by the loud barking of his dog. He went out, but saw nothing, but observed that the gas light near the corner had been extinguished. In the morning it was ascertained that Mr. Clarke's stable had been broken open and a horse, belonging to a negro man named Henderson Johnson, stolen therefrom. The thieves also broke open the stable of Mr. Abram Smith, close by, and stole a valuable bay horse; and, to perfect their work, took a quantity of corn for his feed. It has since been learned that two horses were sent off yesterday morning by the Norfolk boat, and it is quite probable that they were the ones stolen as above stated.
