Stealing Fresh Meat.

--On Friday night last the slaughter-house of Samuel Schwartz was entered and a large quantity of the choicest cuts were taken from several fine cattle which had been slaughtered and dressed ready for market on Saturday morning. The thief was evidently an epicure, as only the sirloins and favorite roasting parts of the animals were taken, while the rest was left untouched. On Saturday suspicion was thrown upon a man named John Werst, who was arrested and will have a hearing before the Mayor this morning.
