Chicken Thieves. --On Saturday night last the cellar of James Clashburn, on 17th, near Main street, was broken into and thirteen fine chickens were stolen therefrom. Some fowl thief also forced an entrance into the hen-house of Thomas Staples, a negro fellow residing on Grace street, between 17th and 18th, and robbed him of nineteen laying hens and two splendid roosters. The exhibition of a lot of badly dressed fowls in the markets of this city may give some clue to the perpetrators of these thefts.
