--On Tuesday night, the store of Felix Mathews
, at the upper end of Broad street, was broken into and robbed of eight boxes of manufactured tobacco
The night before, Mrs. Goode
's henhouse, on Ninth street, French Garden Hill
, was forcibly entered and robbed of nineteen fowls.
Other parties living in the neighborhood lost poultry at the same time.
A lady, in the Second Market
, yesterday morning, while passing through the crowd, had her pockets picked of a porte monnaie
, containing between three and four hundred dollars. A couple of boys were subsequently arrested upon suspicion, but no money was found upon their persons, and they were released.
The commission house of Messrs. John J. Wilson
& Co., on Twelfth street, beyond Cary
, was robbed of one barrel of cheese, eleven fine turkeys, and about two thousand dollars worth of bacon and lard, on Tuesday night. The cheese and turkeys were purchased late that evening for the "Soldier's New Year's Dinner" by Mr. Wilson
, the treasurer for contributions to that laudable entertainment.
The thieves must have had false keys to the store, or secreted themselves in the building a short time before closing up, as none of the locks to the doors were forced.
Upon opening the store yesterday morning, the back door was found open and a trap leading from the second story to the basement was up; otherwise, every other fastening was in proper condition.
