--Last night the office of Roy & Co., at West Troy, was entered by burglars.
They darkened and deafened the doors and windows by packing shawls over them, and then blew open two safes from which they extracted twenty thousand dollars in seven-thirties, thirteen thousand dollars in bank bills, and two hundred dollars in specie.
They made their escape with the money, and there is no clue to their identity.
