--About two o'clock yesterday morning the servants sleeping in the kitchen on the premises of Mr. Julius Crafton, on Leigh street and Union Hill, were around by an unusual noise in the front residence, and on hastening thither, observed two men, apparently soldiers, running out the basement door into the street. Upon an examination, it was found that the thieves had carried off about five pounds of coffee, twenty-odd pounds of sugar, two hams and a bucket of lard. Mr. Crafton, who is a widower, without children, was absent from home at the time with one of the local defence companies.
