Police Arrests.

--Among the persons committed to the lower station-house on Saturday was Don Patrical Antomo G Camp, charged with stealing $35.40 and a gold chain from the Orleans House, on Eighth street. He stoutly denies the charge, and if innocent, will have an opportunity to prove himself so this morning — A man named George White is under arrest for stealing a box of butter valued at $10 from E. N. Spiller.--A negro named Pleasant, the property of William Smith, requested Officer Bibb to take him into custody, as he had given a fellow servant, John Jefferson, a blow with an axe, which might involves serious consequences. The, officer complied with the honest darkey's desire, and looked him up.--John, slave of E. D. Eacho, was arrested Saturday might on suspicion of having stolen some bacon; also, Jacob Schaaf, a white man; charged with breaking into the tailor shop of John McNaught, and stealing a cost, two pairs of scissors, and a lot of buttons.--Marshall Bradley, a free negro, who has served with the Lynchburg-Artillery at Alleghany Mountain, performed a piece on his favorite banjo on Saturday night while walking along the street, when he was pounced-upon by a watchman and conducted to the cage. Bradley was armed with a knife, as negroes generally are when they turn from a campaign. His banjo, however in his pride; and he was permitted to enliven the gloomy dungeon with a few familiar airs, while warming his toes at the fire in the guard room.
