WEST-END BURGLAR HUNT. Between four and five o'clock on Tuesday morn- ing an exciting hunt for a suspected burglar took place in three residences in St. James's-square, London—those of the Bishop of London, the Earl of Derby, and the Duke of Norfolk. Screams were heard by the police in the small hours proceeding apparently from the house of Lord Derby. Then the servants rushed out in alarm, declaring that there were burglars on the premises. A large force of police soon assembled, and thoroughly searched the mansion; but meeting with no success they made an inspection of the roof. For several hours THE HrXT WAS CONTINUED, when it transpired that the house of the Bishop of London next door had also been entered by a thief l or thieves. A large number of servants assisted the police in their long search, which now extended I to the house of the Bishop. Nothing up to then had rewarded the party. Towards noon, however, mysterious noises were heard by the servants in Norfolk House, which adjoins that of I the Bishop, and a hasty survey shewed that burglars had been at work on the premises. Certain rooms appeared to have been turned nearly upside down in the endeavour to obtain possession of valuables. Everything in the shape of a cupboard or a box that might be considered a likely place in which to keep costly articles had been broken open and ransacked. Finally sucepss rewarded the efforts of the searchers, for a man servant DISCOVERED IN THE COAL CET.I.AR of the Duke's house a man of the labouring class who had no business there. The servant promptly turned the key on the intruder and kept him locked in until he summoned the police. The man was apparently asleep, and was lying among the coal. Beside him were some valuables packed up ready for removal, while his pockets were filled. The bundles that he had made ready contained a quantity of plate. On being removed to Vine-street police-station lie declined to give any information about himself. He treated the matter lightly, and laughingly said that he came down the chimney. He is a man apparently about thirty years of age. Painters and other workmen have lately been engaged upon some houses in St. James's-square, and the ladders left by them may have been found by the intruders of considerable assistance to them. The man arrested alleges that during the search a constable flashed his lantern on him, but failed to notice him.
