Arrests by the Police. --The police yesterday arrested William, slave of Meredith Brown, for stealing $2.50 from J. E. L. Masourier. The darkey was a runaway at the time. Officer Gentry arrested a negro named Jim Robinson (one of Hatcher & Webster's drivers) for being implicated in the abduction of Mr. Persons Walker's trunk, and $200 therein contained. In searching the premises occupied by him the officer found, next to the slats of his bed, a breach-loading flintlock musket, inscribed "U. S., North Middleton, Conn., 1834." It was evidently stolen from a Government wagon, or private soldier, and concealed for sinister purposes. It can be reclaimed by the owner's going to the cage.
