ROBBERIES

Depredations continue to be practised in Dover with the greatest impunity - the parties being too adroit to be detected.

On Tuesday night, whilst Mr. G. Ider, of the "Sportsman," Priory Place, was gone to a neighbour's with the supper beer, and absent about two minutes, his front door mat was carried off.

On the same night, Mr. Brett, of the "New Inn," had his fore-door mat also stolen; and Mrs. Bryan, shopkeeper, Biggin Street, had a dozen brushes, which were hanging just within the street door, stolen.

On Sunday night two smartly dressed females, who stated that they had just arrived from Deal by the railway coach, applied at the "White Horse," and enquired if they could be accommodated with a bed; and being told they could, they returned (as the landlord supposed) for the night; but early the following morning, hearing a great lumbering, the family got up, when they found that their lodgers had been packing up every portable article they could lay their hand upon, and were then regarding themselves previously to decamping. We hear that they were merely turned out of the house.
