Between Ten and Eleven in the Morning, I was walking round Holywel-Mount (in the Field near Holywel-Lane, Shoreditch) and at some Distance, I saw a Man standing in an odd Posture, with his Back towards me, and his Head almost between his Legs. I could not imagine what he was about, and so I went towards him, upon which he laid himself all along upon something, as if he had been asleep; at that Time a Friend of mine coming by, we walk'd off a little Way, and stood upon the Watch. We saw the Man rise again, and perceived something like a Box under him; but seeing us, he lay down again. We went up to him, and asked him why he lay in that Manner: He said, he was not well. We proffered to give him a Dram, if he'd go with us; but he said, he could not drink any thing. I thought something more than ordinary was the Matter, and therefore was willing to find it out; but my Friend being in haste to go, I desired him only to watch two or three Minutes, while I called another Acquaintance of mine who was hard by. I went, and as I come back, I met the Prisoner empty-handed. When I came to my Friend, whom I had left waiting, he told me, that he was gone off with a Case in his Hand. Why, I met him just now says I, and he had nothing in his Hand. Then he has thrown it away, says he; and so we went to look, and found the Show-Glass turned upside down, but it was empty, and we could not afterwards get sight of the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Bridget - the Prosecutor's Maid deposed, That about Half an Hour before the Glass Case was lost, the Prisoner came into her Master's Shop, and Cheapned a Pair of silver Buckles.</p>

On Saturday the 23d of April last, about 4 in the Afternoon, my Wife had fetch'd down a Bag of Money, to change 2 or 3 Guineas for a Customer, and being in a Hurry, she put it into a Seat in the Bar, which had no Lock to it, and while she was busy about the House, the Prisoner (as we afterwards found) took that Money, and went away with it. I advertiz'd it in the Evening Post, of Tuesday, April 26. by which Means I with the Prisoner in Duke-Street, Picadilly; and got between 40 and 50 l. of my Money again, which he at last confest was mine, tho' for a long Time he deny'd that he had ever seen me before.</p>
<p>Mr. Sarch thus depos'd. I live in Germain-street, near St. James's Church. The Prisoner came to my Shop on Monday Morning to buy a Holland Shirt, we agreed for 7 s. and then he asked if he could not have Ruffles set upon it, I told him-Yes. Then says he, I want some Scarlet Camblet for a Suit of Cloths. - Upon this I began to view my young Gentleman, and finding that he had got a Sword by his Side, and but indifferent Rigging, I asked him where he came from He told me from Dublin. Which Way, Says I. Why from Dublin to Cork, says he, and so to West-Chester: But why did you come without better Apparel, says I. Why, says he, my Father and I disagreed, and so I left him. - But how many Yards will make me a Suit? I don't know exactly, says I, but I'll call down my Taylor, and he shall take Measure of ye, which was quickly done. I must go to the Play to Night, says he, and therefore pray let the Ruffels be set upon my Shirt time enough. - Have ye ne'er a Coffee-House or Tavern here-abouts. Yes says I, there's a Tavern hard by. He went thither, and cameback in about half an Hour, a little Fuddled, and said he had drank three Pints of Mountain. - Then he went in the Neighbourhood, and hir'd a Lodging, for which he gave half a Guinea earnest, and returning to my House, and seeing a young Woman there, he invited her to go and take a Glass with him, but she refusing, he said he'd sent for a Pint home. I told him he should send for none to my House, but however he went to the Tavern himself, and sent a Pint over. - When he came back again, he went up to lye upon my Bed, and let fall a Bag of Money. I took it up, and counting it over before Witness, found there were 40 Guineas and an half, 2 Moidores, and half a Broad-piece in it. I had a violent Suspicion of my Spark, and while he laid upon the Bed, I look'd over the Advertisement in the Weekly Journal, and found one that to my thinking, answer'd the Description of the Boy, with Directions to carry the Person to Mr. Webster, in King-street. When the Prisoner got up, I began to talk with him, and shew'd him the Advertisement, he look'd on it, and said, I am not the Boy. - Well, then says I, will ye go with me to Mr. Webster, he read the Advertisement again, and after a little Pause, he consented. We went, but Mr. Webster did not know him.</p>
<p>Mr. Webster thus depos'd. A young Gentleman having left his Father, the Father desir'd me to let him advertise for his Son to be brought to me, that he might be expos'd as little as possible. It was I suppose upon reading this Advertisement that Mr. Sarch brought the Prisoner to me; but tho' he was not the right Person, I thought there were many suspicious Circumstances in his Case, and therefore I privately desir'd Mr. Sarch to take care of him, for at least a Day or two longer, and I did not doubt, but that I should make some Discovery. Accordingly next Day I examin'd the News Papers, and found the Prosecutors Advertisement, by which means I found him out, and brought him to the Prisoner. Is this your Servant, Sir, says I. Yes, Sir, says he. What's that's you say, Sir, (says the Prisoner to him) do you pretend to know me, and thus he brazen'd it out for a long while, but having search'd him, and taken the Money from him, he at last confest that the Prosecutor was his Master, and that he had robb'd him of that Money. We have since heard that the Prisoner was this time 12 Month, try'd at this Place, for stealing a Guineas of

<p>THe Town being still imposed upon, and the publick Prints daily cramm'd with the fulsome Praises of installible Specificks Arcausa's, Italian, and many other Quack Medicines, it is thought necessary to cuadios the wary against them; there being to Danger that she judicious Part of Mankind should be deceived by them. Why are these Medicines exposed to Sale at Toys Shops, unless to skreen the Preparets of such notorious Cheats from the Resentment of injured People? Are the best Physicians, or most emineant Surgeons, ashamed of their Prescriptions and Preparations? Must the severe Affiction of an Impostor's Pocket induce Men to ruin their Constitutions? Can we believe that Charity for others deplorable Circumstances will prevail on such a one to publish what he dare not own? Are not the Degrees of the Veneral Disease various? Are not Mens Constitutions vastly different? Was there ever a Remedy always infalliable? Do not the same things agree with one, and prove Poison to another? Or are there not a sufficient Number of able and experienced Physicians and Surgeons, who practice in Publick, and whole Credit depend upon their skill and Success? The most ingenious Prescription may sometimes fail: And will any one depend upon he Apparatus or an unknown Author, who never sees you, or consults your Distemper, and who, when he had sufficiently cheated you, will refer you to the Advice of some able Surgeon? Shall a Man's Mesery incline-him to be tredulous, and prevail upon him to make himself more miserable? Or can any one foolishly fear that a Surgeon will expose his Patraent? For your own Sales, therefore apply to some Man of Kills and Probity who appears to justify his Practice, and answer for its Success; such a one invites you to his House, the first on the Right-hand in Crane-Court near Feter: Lane in Fleet-Street, a Golden Heart and Lamp at the Door; who, from the most. Degree of that unhappy Disease, will receieve you to Health and Vigour, speedily and securely, without Salivation. Enquire for the Surgeon, who may he advised with any Morning till Twelve a Clock, and from Three to Ten at Night.</p>
<p>N. B. There being a young Surgeon in the same Court (to prevent Mistakes) take Notice this is the first House on the Right Hand.</p>
