Attempt at Burglary. --On Saturday night an attempt was made by some negroes to force an entrance into the tailoring establishment of Mr. George R. Howard, on 14th street, between Main and Franklin, but some of the night watch being near by, the fellows were frightened off before accomplishing their object. Subsequently, however, two negroes, named Alexander, slave of James H. Grant, and Robert, the property of Dr. Jones, discovered lurking in the neighborhood of Mr. H.'s store under suspicious circumstances, were pursued, and being overtaken offered stout resistance to the officers, who finally succeeded in effecting their arrest. One of these fellows drew a pistol from his pocket and fired two barrels at the police before he could be overpowered, neither, however, of which took effect.
