SINGULAR ROBBERIES

About three weeks ago, two Bee Hives were stolen from the garden of MRS HOOD, of Carrygullon, and a few days ago two were also taken from the garden of Mr William Hunter of Cavanalee. We would recommend all persons to whom honey may be offered for sale, to be particular in their enquiries after the persons who may offer it as such plunder, if not closely watched, may discourage the practice of rearing Bees altogether. We understand, a Reward, respectably signed, will be offered for the apprehension of the thieves
