It appeared, that there being an Execution out against Mr. Sickes's Goods, which the deceased and some others were about to put in execution: For which end the deceased and one Farell got over the Prisoner's Yard Wall about five in the Morning, and lurked in the House of Office till about 9 or 10 in the Morning, when Sickes's Maid opened the Back-door, after whom they rushed into the House.

The Evidence also deposed, that they heard the deceased say, that as they entered the House, the Inhabitants call'd out Bailies and Rogues: upon which Mr. Sickes coming down stairs, met Farell, and discharged two Pistols at him; after which coming down to the lower Room, where Mr. Sickes's Wife and the other Prisoners had seized Anderson, the first sitting upon his Head, and the rest upon his Body and Legs to keep him down, Mr. Sickes himself thrust him into the Body; And that thereupon a Constable was call'd, and Entrance into the House obtained, where there was Powder, Bullets, Pistols and Swords found, and a naked Sword taken out of the Prisoner Barker's hand. They also deposed, that Mr. Sickes's Wife's Hands and Cloaths were all bloody, and that Mr. Sickes himself had escaped, as it was supposed, out of a Window. Mr. Sickes in his defence said, that he knew nothing of their being Baileys-followers, nor that they came upon any such design, but upon the contrary, believed them to be Robbers and House-breakers upon the Out cry below-stairs of Thieves and Murderers; and that Farell having a great oaken Stick in his hand, threatned to knock him down; and that one of them fired a Pistol at him, which grazed in his Wig: That so soon as he understood what the matter was, he ordered ready Entrance to be given. He also call'd abundance of People to his Reputation, who gave him a very good Character. The Jury brought them all in

The Evidence deposed, that the Prisoner had several times desired one of them to join with him in that wicked Trade, which, through great Importunities, he accepted: That the Prisoner had let him see several Say-pieces, told him he could do it as clean as the Pattern: That he had taken a fit House for that purpose, and that some of the Say pieces were shown to Sarah Smith for her Approbation: That they imploy'd another of the Evidence to put off some of their false Money, and to buy Melting Pots and Files: That Sarah Smith blew the Fire, and shewing some dislike at the Mixture of the Metal, said she would rather have it of a Copper mixture, of which sort she had put off a great quantity in the Country where her Husband coined, and she whitened and finished. The Evidence also deposed, that they found John Elton in the Room where all the Utensils for that hellish Trade were, as were several Species of Counterfeit-money; and that upon his being seized, he endeavoured to make his escape. But it appeared that all the Utensils found in the Room belong'd to one of the Evidence, who had leave of the Prisoners
