Attempted Burglary. --On Wednesday night one or more chevaliers de industrie applied themselves assiduously for several hours to an unsuccessful attempt to effect a felonious entrance into the grocery establishment of Mr. Peter Cunningham, located below Col. Haskins', on the Main street, at Rocketts. Yesterday morning at an early hour, when the proprietor proceeded to open for the day, he found that the rogues had bored continuously with an auger till they had made a hole about five inches square, through which they vainly endeavored to remove the only bar to their entrance — a stout wooden stuncheon, made, however, too fast for purposes of easy access by means of a chain. It is perhaps a fortunate thing for Cunningham that his fastening was a cross bar to such sinister designs as evidently prevailed in the vicinity of his front door on the night in question. This is the fourth attempt that has been made to rob the same store. Have we burglars among us?
