Important Captures.

--Since the murder of George P. Wright, in Rocketts, a week or two since, Sidney Wicker, Chas Tenser, and John Champion, charged with committing the deed, have been at large eluding the police. Yesterday officers Bibb, Perrin, Adams, and Wicks, of the day police, mounted on horses, proceeded about seven miles down the Nine Mile Road, having heard that the parties were staying at a house there. Upon nearing the house they halted to await the end of the heavy rain which fell about two o'clock. Directly the rain was over they mounted, and made a regular cavalry charge on the house. The parties named, and Albert Jordan, also charged with felony, broke from the building, but were captured before getting a great distance off. They were all captured, and lodged in the lower police-station. Jordan is charged with burglariously entering the store of Wm. Frichenstein and stealing $561.
