Adelaide. Monday--Some burglars made a raid on the Foundry Hotel, Hindley-street, of which Mr. Jacobs is the licensee, early on Sunday morning. The thieves carried off six bottles of ale, 18 bottles of English.stout, 12 bottles of extract of malt, 9 of lager beer and 6 of brandy and whisky. An examination of the cellar showed that a, piece of board had been broken off large enough to allow of the insertion of a hand to withdraw a bolt.'
