Charged with stealing.

--Officers Charles H. Moore and William S. Jenkins arrested yesterday a white woman, named Jane Bossieux, charged with the theft of a large quantity of ladies' silk dress patterns, hose, cotton goods, &c. About four months since, the residence of J. E. Wadsworth was entered and robbed, the perpetrators leaving no clue behind by which they could be identified. On Saturday last, some of the stolen goods were discovered in a small shop in Screamersville, owned by a German named Crews, who stated that he had received them from Jane Bossieux, in pawn for certain funds advanced. Subsequent to the arrest of the accused, Officer Moore obtained from Crews a handsome green silk dress pattern, one piece of brilliant and a lot of ladies' hose, all of which were fully identified by Mr. Wadsworth as part of the articles which had been stolen from his residence. The matter will be investigated before the Mayor this morning.
