Burglary - The Welland Canal Office at Port Colborne, in charge of James Black, Esq., was broken open, on the night of the 4th inst. and a small tin box taken therefrom, containing about $50, mostly in silver change. The villain, it appears, effected an entrance through one of the back windows, by breaking out four lights of sash and glass; he thence proceeded to the vault, and demolished that part of the door upon which the lock was fastened, with a crow-bar. Luckily, nearly all the money on hand, amounting to about $500, had been sent off only the day before to St. Catharines. A $50 reward is offered for the detection of the rogue. Suspicion has, as yet, attached to no one, as far as we can learn.
