FROM ANDREW SHIRRAN, near Towie, in the parish of Fyvie, on the night between the 11th and 12th November, a Brown middle-sized HORSE, with a switch tail, and half long mane; has a few white hairs in the rose on his face; also a ratch on the far hind hip below the hurkle; and a little crooked on the near fore foot; was never shod on the hind feet; also there was taken with him, a COLLAR and HARNESS, with long slings. On the same night, a Blue painted CART, with Red Shafts, was carried off from the neighbourhood, supposed by the same person.
Whoever can give such information as may be the means of detecting the offenders, will be handsomely rewarded on application to the Proprietor, or to Wm. Irvine, Esq. Towie, by Turriff.
