     Monday evening three decent looking women went into the shop of Mrs. Martin, linen draper, Abbey-street, and while two kept the people of the shop employed, the other found means to carry off one piece of cambrick and two of muslin. - One piece of the latter in handkerchiefs. It is to wished that some of those pests of society were detected, and not suffered to escape through mistaken lenity, but punished with the utmost rigor to be an example to others.
