.L DARING BURGLARIES IN STEPNEY. On Sunday morning last the houses of three respectable tradesmen were broken into and plundered in Waterloo- terrace. The fronts of the tenements are in the Cøm- mercial-road, and the backs of the houses and yards in the rear are separated from each other by low walls. The burglars appear to have scaled a lofty wall in a court behind, and descended into the yard behind the parlour of Mr. William Wagg, bootmaker, No. 9. His premises were so well secured as to render any attempt to break in quite hopeless. A dwarf wall was soon got over, and the burglars commenced operations on the premises of Mr. Caggett, fancy stationer and post- master, No. 8. A stout iron bar was ben-t and removed, the shutters of the back parlour window forced, and admission to the premises obtained. A great many cases and closets were ran- sacked, about £ 7 worth of postage stamps and various portable articles to the value of £ 20 stolen. to the house of Mr. Stebbing, undertaker, No. 7, the burglars removed a bar and shutter behind the kitchen window of Mr. Edwin Loveland, hatter, and forced an entrance into the kitchen. The thieves abstracted plate, wearing apparel, and linen valued at £ 40. There was a new linen shirt, with gold studs and gold links on the wristbands, which Mr. Loveland intended to wear on Sunday, hanging up in the kitchen, and this was removed, and a dirty old dilapidated slop shirt substi- tuted in its place. The premises of Mr. Jones, grocer, No. 2, were also broken into, and a few articles of inconsiderable value taken away. A few nights since the counting-house oil the rope ground of Mr. Easum, Commercial-road, Stepney, opposite Waterloo- terrace, was broken into, and X40 in money, including a £20 Bank of England note, stolen. On Sunday night, between the hours of eight and ten o'clock, a bedroom at the back of the Queen's Head public-house, York- square, Stepney, in the occupation of Mr. Thomas Eaton, was entered by thieves, who took from a chest of drawees a silver watch, a gold Albert chain, a guinea, a few pieces of jewellery, five pairs of trousers, two coats, two vests, and other property, valued in all at 416. An entrance was effected by mounting a water- butt in the back-yard, and reaching the window-sill. The window was then opened with ease, and the robbers selected every portable article of value in the room.
