The bacon thieves.

--The negroes Jim, Andrew and Adeline, arrested on Wednesday for stealing thirty-two pieces of bacon from Mr. James R. Chiles, were yesterday examined by the Mayor and sent on to the Hustings Court. On the person of Jim were found a valuable gold chain and three very handsome gold shirt studs, which are believed to be stolen property. They are now in the safe keeping of officer Griffin.
