PURLOINING OF NEWSPAPERS - A fellow was detected on Thursday evening in the
act of stealing a newspaper at the General Post-Office. He was immediately taken
into custody, and will be prosecuted under the act of the present Session. The
practice of purloining papers has of late become so serious a nuisance, and the
cause of so many disappointments, that the public are much indebted to the
Secretary, Sir Edward Lees, for his zeal in getting the bill passed, which makes
it a penal offence.-- D.E. Post.
The Marquis of Sligo has determined to try the experiment of introducing
the waving of cotton and muslin into Westport. Already has his Lordship directed

has been purchased in Belfast for the purpose.
