Snow-dropping. Some persons living near the Gran ville-Parramatta boundary have been missing a good deal of rough-dry property of late ; — from their clothes lines. Strange to say, the thieves did not clear off at all times with whole articles. Sometimes they took a cuff or two from a shirt and took thein off none too neatly ; at other times they took other parts. The latest robbery was that of several pillow-slips, or portions thereof. Investigations were set on foot, as they always are in such cases, and hot pursuit of the culprits was entered upon. At length, diligence and cuteness were rewarded ; and the offenders were discovered, ? in the shape of a couple of old milch cows ! Many of our Granville readers will be sorry to learn of the approaching departure from Granville of Messrs. John Fewster and William Caminidge, builders and contractors, for Western Australia.
