Thicuss arrested.

--Pink Mull and John Wesley, alias Jno. Harper, two noted thieves, yesterday morning went into Leopold Rose's store on Broad street, and snatching up a piece of calico containing thirty-six yards, made off. Mull was pursued and caught and handed over to the police, by whom he was locked up in the watch-house. Wesley escaped at that time, but about two o'clock had the hardihood to come to the watch house to bring Mull his dinner, when he was arrested and carried up to Mr. Rose, who identified him as one of the thieves.
