Another heavy robbery of jewelry is reported from England. A number of valuable jewels belonging to the Duchess of Cleveland, the mother of the Earl of Bosebery, were ëtolën ffoöl Battle Abbey, one of the Duke of Cleveland's seats. The value of the jeels is estilüated at froin .L5,000 to L10,000. The articíes stolen were chiefly presenta, one of thein, a necklace of diaiöonds, rabies and emeralds, being the gift of the Queen to the Duchess, who was a bridesmaid at Her Majesty's wedding. No trace has been discovered of the thieves, and a reward of L200 has been offered for tlieir discovery. 'Hie latest previous parallel to this brilliant bit of rognery was the stealing of the Countess of Dudley's dressülg-bftg, contaiaing aboitt L5,000 wortli of jewels, whiie her ïiïaid stood near it at a railway station. Kecently two American ladieë have been vietimized in London - one, JMrs. Stevens, of New York, by a French maid, and the other, Mrs. Ives, now Lady Harcourt, a daughter of Mr. Motley by a bold rogue who climbed wp intó the window of Mr. Motley's house in Arlington street, while the Minister and family were at dinner below. The jewels had been laid out on a dressingtable, as the ladies were going to a ball the same evening. In the case of the Duchess of Cleveland, the flnanoial loss, even at the highest figure assigned to it, will hardly be so much feit as the sentimental loss, for the Duke is one of the wealthiest men in England and has no direct heirs. His dukedom dies with him, and his estates will go with the barony of Bernard to a distant kinsman, Morgan Vane, of Huntingdonshire. The j Earl of Rosebery is a 'son of the Duchess of Cleveland by her first marriage with Lord Dalmeny.
