Mayor's Court, Saturday. --Alfred Hill, free negro, with no papers arrested for stealing ten dollars from Cornelius, slave of L. M. Jude, was ordered to be whipped. Churchill, slave of George Daggins, and Dick, slave of Mrs. Alvey, were charged with breaking into the store of Robert B. Smith, near Brook Avenue, some time since, and stealing four hundred pounds of bacon, one bag of coffee, five boxes of candies, two hundred pounds of sugar, one key of lard, all of the value of $8,000. Officer Perrin hearing that Dick knew something of the robbery, proceeded to his stable, where he found a lot of sugar, bacon, &c, which was recognized by Mr. Smith as his property.--After the negro was committed to prison he made a confession that the robbery was perpetrated by Churchill, who brought the articles to him to keep, some of which he bought. Owing to the absence from the city of Mr. Smith, the Mayor adjourned further examination to a future day. Bail was offered and accepted
