TO THE EDITOR OF THE KIAMA INDPENDENT. SIR,-I was glad to see your Jamberoo cor respondent take up that (to this neighbour hood) momentous subject-petty thefts. It is scarcely probable that either you or your cor respondent are aware of the extent to which those low, mean-spirited, lazy, prowling knaves, carry on their infamous nocturnal practices round about the neighborhoods of Fountaindale, Jerrara, and Longbrush. It is positively disgraceful. There is scarcely a &nbsp; resident in the vicinity but has lost something -either butter, beef, tin-dishes, cans, ropes, axes, hoes, &e.,. &c. It is now scarcely safe to leave your pipe where some time ago had you left your purse it would have remained in perfect safety. Is this state of things to con- tinue? I think not ; for there are some cir cumstances connected with several of these robberies, as also with the alternating periods of their commission, that by universal consent in this locality, point out with so...
