It developed yesterday that a aeriea of robberies which have been systematical? ly conducted at the railroad wharves at Port Norfolk and Pinners Point culmi? nated last night in a tragedy. Tbe fact was disclosed when tbe ballet-riddled body of Daniel Bullock, ol Mount Her man, was found floatiug in tbe water. Watchmsn Ironmonger Wednesday night discovered two meu atealing gro? ceries from tbe wharf ol 'tie New York, Philadelphia and NorMk Railroad at Port Norfolk. The wstchman pursued them, and as they were about to jump from the wharf to a email skill which they had brought along for tbe purpoae of carrying ofl their booty he fired aev eral shots at them. In their haste to hs ve they turned tbe boat over, and it was not known at tbat time by the watchman that any of hia shots bad taken eflect. He was under the impres? sion lhat both men had made their way ashore, although neither made a noise after the boat turned turtle. HEAT CAUSES INSANITY.
