Billy Wilson's thieves.

--This exemplary regiment of Zouaves salled from New York on Saturday by the steamer Vanderbilt.--Their destination has not been positively stated, though it was supposed to be Fortress Monroe. For two or three days previous, the police were busy in looking up the stragglers, who were generally found beastly drunk and brought in on drays. Just as the boat was leaving, a free fight took place, and one theif, who had the delirium tremens, tried to drown himself.
