William Thompson confirmed what the other said, adding that he being upon the Wall they threw Bricks at him; cut at him with the Hanger, and endeavoured with a Bar to knock him off, and he heard them cry, Damn him, cut him to pieces, shoot him; that he slipping down from the Wall, they took him rising and met him in the Breast; that the Slugs were still in his Body; that he could not swear directly that it was Murth, but that it was the least of the two; which Description answer'd to Murth's Stature. Several of these Circumstances were confirmed by other Evidences. They added likewise, that Wood did endeavour to fire, but his Pistol would not go off. Wood confessed the same at his Apprehension and before the Justice, affirming that Murth shot Thompson. The Constable that apprehended, Murth deposed, that when he took him in Shoreditch, Murth did not, deny the Fact, but he telling him he the Man who was shot was dead, Murth rep had a good Friend that had assured him before that he was not. Two other Evidences that assisted in carrying him to Newgate, deposed, that he owned he shot Thompson, and said he was very sorry that he had done it, but confessed that he had three loaden Pistols besides what he had fired and that he would have discharg'd them all before he would have been taken.

Another Evidence deposed, That he-being put in possession of Murth's Goods by the Lord of the Mannor, found a Musick-book, with Doctor Grant's Name to it behind a picture, and a pocket Book, wherein was an Account of the Robberies committed by him in the Year 1716.

The Court reply'd, that it was indeed a very allowable Action to borrow a Bible, and a good one to read in so good a Book, but it was a bad Action to steal it.

The Prosecutor deposed that Rochford came to his Shop, pretending to buy a Diamond Ring, he asked him, what price? he told him about 10 l. that he shew'd him one about that price, and the Prisoner bid him 5 l. for it; whereupon he looking in the Case to shew him one of 5 l. price; the Prisoner pointed at several, that there were five shew'd him; that immediately in comes Follard and asks for two Gold Rings, which he shew'd him, but they proved too heavy; and that then he seeing him looking for the Ring, was very urgent to be shew'd other Rings, saying, he was in haste, and if he would not serve him he would go to another Shop, that he shew'd him two others, and weigh'd them, he bought them for 23 s. and 6 d. and paid him for them, and was going away, while he saw him earnestly looking for the Diamond Ring. But he missing one of the Rings, told him he must not go; desiring a Gentleman in the Shop to stand at the Door, to prevent their going away; that of five Rings that he laid out, there was but four upon the Counter till Follard clapping his Hand upon them took them up, and laying them down there was five. The Gentleman who was waiting in the Shop deposed, that he suspecting them, observed, that though they took no Notice one of another, yet he perceived as they stood by one another, side by side, they both put their Hands down together, and that he did suppose, that Rechford convey'd the Ring to Follard, who having bought and paid for two Rings was to have got off unsuspected, while Rochford was treating about them. The Evidences deposed likewise, that Rochford being search'd, had no more than a Board-piece of Gold and half a Guinea to pay for the 10 l. Ring he asked for; and that Follard after he had paid for his two Gold Rings, had about 4 s. and 6 d. left. The Prisoners denied the Fact, and Follard said he only took up the four Rings to see the Beauty of them. Their Characters were none of the best, nor gave they any satisfactory Account of themselves; whereupon the Jury found them both

In answer to which, he gave himself the Character of so fair a Dealer that way, that he never took any Money of his Clients, till he had perform'd their Business. Upon which the Prosecutor told him if he could help him to the Sum of 20 or 25 l. upon his Note for three Months, he should be glad; which he undertook to do; wrote two Notes, one for 12 l. and the other for 13 l. which he was to get discounted; and that coming afterwards to the House again; and looking over some Papers that he pulled out of his Pocket; when he was gone, they found a Note drawn for 15 l. payable in three Months, in a Character imitating the Prosecutor's Hand, and sign'd with his Name: Upon which, he knowing, he had given no such Note began to be uneasy, went to

He hunting them daily for the Notes, and being very pressing; at last, Archbole told him plainly, that as for the 12 l. Note, that he must pay, and as to the 13 l. Note, it was in his Power; asking him, What he would give him to let him have it again? The Prosecutor swore, the 15 l. Note was not of his Writing; and this was confirm'd by others that knew his Hand; and the Prisoner having gain'd a very ill Character by tricking Practices, the Jury found him
