Heavy Robbery. --The lumber house on the line of the basin bank, which has been used for some time back by Messrs. Joseph R. Anderson & Co. as a place of deposit for provisions intended for the workmen at the Tredegar Iron Works, was forcibly entered by thieves on Saturday night and robbed of fifty-odd pieces of bacon.

This was granted, and the time set from 7 to 10 o'clock last night.--Grant did not get the answer in time, and so the dead are not buried. Grant sent to Gen. Lee another flag of truce this morning, for what purpose has not transpired. There has been some picket and battery firing to-day.

Joseph R. Anderson & Co., but, notwithstanding the fact that a strict watch has been kept, no clue was obtained until within the past few days of the perpetrator of the theft. On Monday last, however, suspicion was directed towards a workman at the place, named John Taylor, and on Tuesday and Wednesday he was discovered in the very act of carrying them off. The case was brought before the Mayor yesterday morning, when the following facts were elicited: Thomas H. Cary, an employee at the nail works, missed on Thursday last, from a large number of kegs filled with nails, one keg, but soon after found it stowed away very carefully among some empty barrels. Suspecting that it had been placed there by some one who designed taking it away as soon as a convenient opportunity presented itse
