The Prosecutor depos'd, That he having been abroad, when he came home he found a Closet in the Back-Shop broken open, and the Money taken away, which was found in the Prisoner's Lodging. That the Prisoner was a Relation to a Jew Family that lodg'd in his House, and had liv'd there before for about seven Months, but did not lodge there at the Time when the Fact was committed, but he had dined there the Day the Money was missing, therefore suspecting him they went to his Lodging, and ask'd him about it, but at first he deny'd that he knew any Thing of it; but being inform'd by another that the Prisoner had got Money, he went and fetch'd it where he had hid it between the Tiles, but there wanted three Pound of the Sum, and he pretended that going to the Prosecutor's House, he found the Door open, and seeing an Englishman there, he ask'd him, What he did there? whereupon he threw the Bag of Money down, and he took it up, and carried it Home. The Prisoner pleaded much to the same Purpose at the Bar; the Reason he gave for not stopping the Person he found in the Prosecutor's House was, That it was a Thing of very dangerous Consequence in his Country, to call stop Thief, or the like, after a Person; and that he hid it between the Tiles that he might keep it safe, in Order to return it to the Prosecutor, he having no Lock, or Security, in his Lodging.

That as they were going along they met with William Pritchard, Thomas Pritchard, and William Risdel, who gave them some affronting Language, calling them Taylors, and King John's Men, and Risdel very rudely and violently would kiss Mrs. Griffin, which they permitted for Peace Sake, and parted: And afterwards they heard them say, as they were a little Way from them, What had they three to do with the Woman? they would take her from them and came to them again, and would have Mrs. Griffin from them, who was then holding by the Deceased's Arm, and did violently pull her away, though they told them she was Mr. Griffin's Wife, That she not being willing to be carried away, was knock'd down; and Mrs. Griffin depos'd, That it was Risdel that knock'd her down, giving her several Blows on the Face and Head with his Hand, which hurt her so that she could not bear to touch her Head with a Comb for a considerable Time: But her Husband getting her away, while Thomas Batten was fighting with the Prisoners Pritchard and Risdel, she could give no Account of the killing of Orchard. Thomas Dillo depos'd, That upon this Violence offered to Mrs. Griffin, the Prisoners fell upon them: That the Deceased had a Stick in his Hand, but one of them got hold of it, and would have pull'd it out of his Hand, upon which he assisted Orchard, to pull the Stick, and it broke, and then he ran away from the Prisoners; but they followed him, and Pritchard stopp'd him, and said he should not go, unless he gave him a shilling. That he was running to the Town to get Assistance, for one of the Pritchards and Risdel were fighting with Thomas Batten. That then they return'd into the Fray, and that was near John Darby's Door, who, upon an Outcry (as he supposes) that they had made of Murder, was come out in his Shirt, and was looking over his Gate with a Stick in his Hand. That then he came to the Fray, and stood by, while one of the Pritchards and Risdel had Thomas Batten down on the Ground. That he desir'd him, Darby, not to make any Party, but to make Peace, that they might go Home about their Business. That the Deceased was standing by him, giving no Provocation, not fighting, and that John Darby with his Stick knock'd the Deceased down, and he died in about Half an Hour: That having apprehended him, he said he hoped he had not kill'd him; but being carried to the Deceased, and seeing him dead, he kneel'd down, and Kill'd him, saying, Carry me where you please, I am willing to die for him. Thomas Batten depos'd the same, as to the Circumstances before the Beginning of the Fray, and Occasion of it; but as to the killing of Orchard, he being upon the Ground, and Risdel and one of the Pritchards fighting with him, he could give no Account of that. Henry Griffin depos'd much to the same Effect, saving that he having been to get his Wife away to his Lodgings, return'd back, and coming in Sight of the Prisoners, he saw John Darby give the Deceased the Fatal Blow, who was at that Time standing still, and not fighting. The Prisoners Risdel and Pritchard in their Defence pleaded, as to the Beginning of the Fray, That meeting the Prosecutor, Witnesses, and Deceased, about twelve a-Clock at Night with a Woman, suspected her to be an ill Woman, and having been drinking, there happen'd to be some Words pass, which proceeded to Blows, the Prosecutors being the Aggressors, and as for Mrs. Griffin's being knock'd down, Risdel deny'd his striking her, but said she might possibly be push'd down in the Fray. John Darby pleaded, That he knew not the Deceased, and therefore had no Malice against him. They all called Persons to their Reputation, who gave them the Character of honest, laborious Person in their Calling of

That the next Morning he went to their Lodging for the Key of the Work house, and coming to it found Embers of Charcoal, some Crucibles and Metal. That Austin Richardson coming about 9 or 10 a Clock, he enquired what they had been doing: That thereupon he answered, that they had been making some Trials as to coining of Money, having melted Brass for that Purpose, but that he could not make it bear, but he had been told by a Friend of something that would do better, and he would try the Experiment with that. And that about the 8th or 9th of March following, they did coin with Several Metals mixt 12 Pieces in the Likeness of King Charles the Second's Shillings, and 25 Pieces in the Likeness of Half Crowns: And that the Saturday Night following he went with Austin Richardson, and he put off one of these Half Crowns at a great Wholesale Grocers in Smithfield. And that some Days after, Cartwright Richardson ask'd him (this Evidence) why he was afraid to put the Money off, telling him he had put off one of those Half Crowns at a Cheesemonger's Shop in Drury-lane over against Covent-Garden; but he reply'd, he would be no farther concern'd than he had been. And that then they bid him take care of the Tools, and he hid them under the Boards of a Floor in the Closet. That afterwards Austin Richardson was arrested, and he being with him in the Counter, he threatned to impeach him (this Witness) of Coining: Whereupon he thought best to secure himself, and therefore went to Mr. Morgan, who was ordered by Mr. Pinkney, Deputy-Warden of the Mint, to take care of the Affair of Coinage in his Absence, he being gone into the Country, and acquainted him with the Matter on Saturday the 22d of August. But being arrested on Monday on an Action of 20 l. by Cartwright Richardson, could not go to make out his Information as he had appointed Mr. Morgan, by reason that he was a Prisoner in the Marshalsea. Mr. Morgan depos'd, that March did come to him the 22d of August, and inform'd him that there were two Brothers that had been concerned in Coining, and he proposing to have them apprehended, he desired him to let it alone a Day or two longer, because one of the Brothers was out of the Way, promising he would come to him again the Monday following, but did not come; and on Tuesday a Person came to him, and told him that Cartwright Richardson had arrested March, thrown him into Prison, and so he could not come to him. That he advis'd him to get him to a Justice of the Peace to take his Examination; and that afterwards he having given an Account where the coining Utensils were, they went with an Officer to apprehend Cartwright Richardson (for Austin Richardson was then Prisoner in the Counter) at his House in Swan-Alley near St. James's, secured him, and took him with them the next Day when they went to sieze the Utensils.

Mr. Woodman depos'd, that having received a Note from Henry March, he went to him, and he giving him an Account that he had been put in Prison at the Suit of the Prisoners, that he might not give his Information against the Prisoners: He went to Mr. Morgan in the Tower, and Measures were concerned to get Justice Nichols to take March's Information, who went to the Prison to him and took it there; that he also went and talk'd with Cartwright Richardson, about arresting March, who sent for a Lawyer, to answer him; who speaking in the Plural Terms, owned, that March did not owe them 20 l. but did owe some Money, but there were some Reasons for arresting him, in such a Sum, beyond his Capacity of getting Bail, and had they known that he would have done such a Thing to hang them, they would hang him. And that when Cartwright saw the Utensils taken out, he sell into an Agony and Fit, and said, The Lord have Mercy upon him, there is enough to hang an hundred People; but said he knew nothing

<interp inst="t17241014-51-person253" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> depos'd, that when they went to apprehend Cartwright, at Austin's House in Swan Alley, he was deny'd; but searching the House they broke open a Chamber Door, and found him, he not opening it: That when they told him, that they apprehended him for High-Treason, he reply'd, I thought so. The finding the Tools as before depos'd. was confirm'd by several Evidences; and Moulds, Crucibles, and Pieces of melted Mettal were produc'd in Court; and also a false Half Crown, which March swore was one of those coined by the Prisoners and himself.</p>
<p>The Prisoners in their Defence utterly deny'd the Fact, or having any Knowledge of the Utensils. As to the Utensils being found there, they insinuated they might be put there by March himself, by Way of Revenge, in that they had a Difference, he having pawned two of Austin's Clock Cases, and stole their Tools, for which they had threatened to arrest him; whereupon he threatened, That if they did, he would hang Austin. That March did come to Cartwright's House, on Sunday the 23 d of August (the Day after he had been and accused them to Mr. Morgan in the Tower) and desired to have the Key of the House in Black Raven Court, (where the Tools were found) under Pretence of showing it to an Acquaintance of his Wife's, a Midwife, in Order to take it, and kept the Key two Hours and a half, in which Time he might hide the Tools there, in Order to carry on his Plot against them. That he had the Key was prov'd by two Evidences, and that he kept it near two Hours, by one of them, though March pretended he brought it again in Half an Hour; but he did not produce this Midwife, or any Person, that did want to see it, in Order to take it. And it was highly probable, the Reason was, that when he went on the Saturday to Mr. Morgan, and gave him Notice of two Brothers, he did not consent to compleat his Information, not go immediately to apprehend them, but put it off till Monday, that he might have an Opportunity to get the Key on the Sunday, and put the Tools there: Which was more probable, in that his Pretence was, That Austin was out of the Way, when at the same Time he knew he was in the Compter. That as to their arresting him, it was not to prevent his proceeding in his Impeachment against them, but he did really owe them 4 l. 6 s. and call'd Evidences to prove it. That the Reason of arresting him for so much beyond that Sum was, Because they were bound for him in several Sums. And though he was not arrested 'till the Monday after he had informed against them, they knew nothing at all that he had done so; and though the Process against him was not Serv'd upon him, it had been entred Several Days before. To lessen the Credit of March's Evidence, they urg'd, He was a Person of an infamous Character, had pawn'd their Goods, stole their Tools, and did this in Revenge, because they had threatened to arrest him, for what he stood indebted to them. That he had been more than once convicted of Perjury, had stood in the Pillory at Rochester, and had burnt a Ship; but they had not Records to prove it. They call'd a great many Persons to their Reputation, who gave them a good Character. The Court also observ'd, in Favour of the Prisoners, That the Proof of the putting off the two Half Crowns, the one by Austin, the other by Cartwright, depended intirely on the Credit of March's Evidence, and that the Persons to whom they were said to be put off, tho' living at no great Distance, were not produc'd in Court, who might probably remember that they had about that Time taken such Money. Upon a full Hearing of the Matter, the Jury
