THE CROWN JEWELS. ^ NO CLUE. HOW THE nOBBERY HAS DISCOVERED. ' DUBLIN'S CASTLE ALARM. The sensational robbery ot jewels from Dublin Castle was the one topic of conversation in the Irish capital to-day (Sth July), augmented interest I eing lent to the occurreuco by the approaching' visit of ttie King and the -. postponement of the ceremony of in vesbiture of Lord Castlelown of Upper Gssury. in consequence, of tha loss of insignia of tho Knights of St. Patrick, to which Order he was to have loan formally Installed on Wed nesday.
