      Daring Highway Robbery- On Thursday evening, between the hours of 7 and 8
      o'clock, as John Crosby, Esq., was on his way home form this city, and within 20
      yards of his own house, near the draw-bridge, at the North Wall, he perceived
      four fellows, seemingly in conversation. On his approach, they knocked him down,
      and robbed him of a double-cased gold watch, and his hat, with which they made
      off. Mr. Crosby, on their leaving him, immediately pursued the villains, with
      one or two persons, who by this time came to his assistance. Finding themselves
      closely followed, they threw the hat inside the ditch, on the North Strand, and
      through cover of the darkness escaped with the watch. It is hoped the police
      will be on the alert in search of those desperadoes.--Dublin Paper
