DARING BURGLARY NEAR BRISTOL. ROBBERY OF BONDS AND PLATE. The residences of two well-known Bristolians at Westbury-on-Trym, a few miles from the city, were entered in the early hours of Saturday morn- ing bv burglars, who carried away a quantity of valuable plate and other property. The burglars appear to have obtained a ladder from a hayrick near the residence of Mr. G. N. Cowper, Southey House, and, placing this against an upstairs window, they effected an entrance to the house. They forcibly broke open the dining and drawing rooms, and from these apartments stole a variety of silver piate of much value, together with several important bonds. The thieves left the house 7 unheard and unnoticed, and their attention was given next to Cote Bank, the residence of Mrs. Pease, also at Westbury-on-Trym, and not far from Mr. Cowper's huuse. The same ladder used in the former burglary was brought into requisition here to aid the thieves to scale the high wall surrounding the house. They effected an entrance through the pantry window on the basement, after removing the bars from the windows. Then they made their way to the dining-room, and took possession of several silver articles, including knives, an inkstand, and the silver tops of the cruet. The burglars, after removing the alarm bell on the shutters, opened the dining-room window, and, stepping out on to the lawn, walked off with the property without haying attracted the attention of the inmates; The police have not yet made any arrests.
