Robbery. – The henhouse of Thomas Hudgins, on Leigh street, near Glenn & Davis’s brick yard, was entered on Sunday night and robbed of fifteen chickens. Yesterday morning the heads of seven of the chickens were found in the yard, and the supposition is, that the thieves, as fast as they took them from their roosts, wrung their necks off.
