--The stable of Dr. F. W. Hancock, on Main, between Third and Fourth streets, was burglariously entered on Friday night and a favorite riding mare of his was saddled and driven off. The deed must have been committed at an early hour, as before eleven o'clock an emergency required the attendance at the stable of the Doctor's ostler, at which hour the animal was gone.

The same night, the residence of Mr. J. H. Jordane, living on Leigh street, near Brook avenue, was forcibly entered and robbed of a valuable lot of china ware, sugar and coffee, which was in his basement. In this instance the thieves gained admittance by chiselling off the lock from the back basement door. Mr. Jordane and his family were absent from home at the time.

Six butchers' stalls in the First Market, occupied respectively by Messrs. Acree, Lindsey, Brauer, Hechler, Cullingsworth, and the "city stall," were broken open and robbed of their contents. Considering the proximity of these stalls to the rendezvous of the night watch, this robbery was a most remarkable one, and the operators must certainly have been most adroit in the execution of their plans.
