Burglaries.

--On Friday night last, the residence of Mr. Robert Armistead, on Third street, between Clay and Leigh, was broken into and robbed of eighteen pieces of bacon, half box of soap, one barrel of sugar, and a lot of corned beef, amounting in value to ten thousand dollars' worth. The thieves entered through the basement window, and left behind the knife which they used in forcing it open. Besides various other articles of provisions which they failed to carry off, was one bag of coffee and a barrel or so of flour.

On Thursday night, the German Lutheran Church, on Sixth street, between Clay and Leigh, was forcibly entered and robbed of a lot of school books, two looking-glasses, a pitcher and one bell, the property of Rev. Charles Gross, the pastor, who keeps a school in the building. The robbery is supposed to have been perpetrated by two boys, named Childress and McDonald, who were examined by the Mayor on Saturday, and sent on, on the charge of breaking into Mr. Salter's school-house a few nights since.
