I know nothing farther of the Prisoner than his coming to the Poultry Compter to see some of those who are under Consinement there; he came with this Parcel of Things, and there happened to be a Mob at the Gate, which he imagined were coming after him, so he threw them into the Turnkey's Habitation; and I desired him not to let the Boy have them. for I thought he was not a Person likely to have such Things of his own, so I sent for a Constable and charged him, and I found that this Parcel belongs to a poor Miller in the Country, who has not a Farthing of Money to carry on the Prosecution; and before he could raise the Money to prosecute the Boy, the Goods must be lost.</p>
<p>Prisoner. They bid me bring the Things into the Lodge.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to ask the Boy to bring the Things up to the Lodge?</p>
<p>Kingston. He is a loose Boy that comes after the Thieves, he brought them in, and being a little surprised, he threw them into the Lodge; so I told Mr Cox it was proper to stop the Things and the Boy too, till we could come at a little better Knowledge of the Affair, and in about a Quarter of an Hour's Time he confessed that he took them out of the Boat, and brought them away clandeslinely; they were taken out of a little one Mast Boat, and he said no Body was on board the Boat when he took them - I am an Under-Turnkey, my Business is to look after the Rats and Mice.</p>
<p>Cox. When the Person who was the Carrier of the Goods came to him, he said the Prisoner went into the Boat with an Excuse to help a Man to gather up some Wheat, for he had burst a Sack, and the Man who was to carry the Goods, took him to be

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174306290015"/> of a Constable, or a Publican, and she would return me my Goods; I own, says she, I have done an ill Thing to you; but if you will let me go about my Business, and not put me into the Hands of any Body - if you will not put me into the Hands of any Body, and not expose me, I will give you your Goods and your Money; the first Time she only said she would give me my Goods; I did not know that she had got any Money; because I did not recollect, that there was any Silver among the Cloaths; and I was frightened for fear she should have got to my other Money; and then, I was willing to withdraw from the Folk, which I had called to my Assistance, to get her into the Apartment again, from which she had taken the Things, thinking she would return me the Money; and believing that she had got a large Sum; I took her into the Entry she came out of, and shut to the Door to keep the Mob out; she then threw down the Cloaths, and put her Hand in her Pocket and pulled out the Money, and gave it me; when I found it was only the Silver that was in the Cloaths; I threw it down; for I was very glad she had not got to the other Money) and then I went to open the Door, to let in the People I had called to my Assistance; she then went to hold me, to prevent me from opening the Door of the Entry; I pushed her from me, to let the People in, that the Thief might go to Newgate; but, I was not willing she should go, till I saw whether she had got my other Money; for she might have spent my Money in Newgate; and, if I had sent her there, she would not have delivered me the Money; and I could not swear to the current Coin. - The Reason of my opening the Door, was to have the Prisoner secured; for I could not have kept her long, if I had not had Assistance: when I opened the Door, some of the Neighbours came in, and desired the Door might be shut again, to keep the Mob from running away with the Things; they bid me take my Cloaths off the Ground, and tie them up, and see what Money there was, which I did, and there was four Shillings; said I, to the Prisoner, there was more Money than this; she said, she had two Shillings when she came in, and if she had more than that, it was my own; she put her Hand in her Pocket, pulled out four Shillings, and put two of them into my Hand, which made six Shillings, and said she had no more, then she begged and prayed for Mercy, and that she might: have Leave to run away, but I thought it was not safe for me to let her; so she was secured, and carried before Justice Deveil; one Thing I forgot, that when the Neighbours first came in, they heard her throw down a Key, and I made her take up the Key, and give it me; and they desired me to go up, and see whether that Key opened my Door; and that Key locked and unlocked my Door, which was then open, and my Drawers swept of all that was in them; I desired she might be searched, and there were 8 Keys more found upon her; there was a Street-Door Key, Keys for Chamber-Doors, and other Keys.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I have no Council to plead for me; I was disappointed * in that; I keep a Milliner's-Shop in Convent Garden; I never went by the Name of Smith in my Life; my Name is unhappily Yates or Holmes.</p>
<p>* The Law allows not the Assistance of Counsel, as to matter of Fact, on any Indictments for Felony, yet, it is the Opinion of many, it would be never the worse, if it did; for, it seems very strange, to allow a Man this Assistance, in Defence of his Property, and deny it to him, when his Life lies at Stake.

I keep a Publick-House in Oxford Market; as I was at my Door, I heard somebody call Mr Norman; I turned about, and saw Mrs Wheeler have the Prisoner hold by the Petticoat, and was bringing her along; and desired me to come to her Assistance; and, in the mean Time, took the Prisoner over to her own House; and then I went into my own House again, and sent my Wife; and when I came, the Door was bolted, or latched; I stood a Minute or two, and the Door was opened; there was a Parcel of Linnen lying upon the Floor; I can swear to some of them. Mrs Wheeler was making a great Noise, and said, she was robbed of all she had: There were four Shillings and some Half-pence lying on the Floor; the Prisoner pulled four Shillings out of her Pocket, and gave Mrs Wheeler two; and said, the other two were her's; she began to cry, and begg'd for God's Sake, that she would let her go about her Business; for she was a poor unfortunate Woman, and did it to support a young Child, which she had.</p>
<p>Prisoner. About six Weeks ago, Mrs Smith came to my Shop to speak to me (she owed me 16 s. 6 d.)
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174306290016"/> and desired I would go along with her to see some Lodgings; I told her I could not go; then she came another Time; I told her I was going to leave my House, and take a first Floor; she said she had taken a pretty Place, and desired I would go and see it; this was on Saturday Se'nnight, but I could not go, and on Monday I went to Ratcliff Cross : On Tuesday I saw Mrs Smith again, I told her. I I could not go then, for I must go to the Boarding-School in Cavendish Square; but I would go on Wednesday, and accordingly I did go with her, and as I came down. Oxford Square, says she. Come up Stairs, did not I tell you I had a pretty Apartment; I must move before Quarter Day, and I desire you would see whether there are any Bugs in the Walls, for I had a Receipt from abroad to kill Bags, and had no Occasion to take her Things. She went up one Pair of Stairs higher, and asked if one Mr Johnson was within, a Child answered, and said no; she had a Bundle of Cloath pined up, and she gave them to me to carry for her, and she gave me the Money; I had not got three Yards from the Door before Mrs Wheeler said, G - d d - n you for a B - h, you have robbed me; I said, Madam, I have not; (for no Body could see what I had) I was afraid of her, for I found her to be a very violent spirited Woman, she said little to me, but she called me all the B - es she could think of; one of the Gentlemen of the Jury told me she was a vile Woman, and would swear any thing, and if your Lordship will inquire into her Character, you will find her to be so *.</p>
<p>* This comes with a very ill Grace from the Prisoner, whose Life is probably owing to the Compassion of the Prosecutrix: For had this Felony been laid to have been committed (as the Fact was) in a Dwelling-House, it had been a capital Offence.</p>

<p>Palmer.

I did not miss my Watch at that Time, but about a Quarter of an Hour afterwards I felt for it, and it was gone; then I suspected that she had it, as nobody had been near me but her: Away I went down again to Little Charles's to look for her, and there was

The Prisoner was pleased to use a great deal of scurrilous Language; Says she, Is that your Watch? D - n you, you Dog, do you know your Watch? Then she put her Hand into her Bosom, and pulled out a Seal and Ribbon; said she, Do you you know that, if you do not know your Watch? and I said yes, I could swear to it; I could to the Seal, if I could not to the Ribbon: Come, says she, if you will

I will fetch it out of Pawn; so I gave her 16 s. and 6 d. and followed her to the Bull and Butcher at Cow-Cross, and then to the Boar's Head Tavern, and said, Now, Poll, let me have the Watch; and she laid the Watch down on the Table, and I took it up; she said, You son of a B - h, there's your Watch, you shall be one Pint of Wine and I will be another, and we will drink together; and we drank 3 Pints of Wine together - she laid the Watch down on the Table at the Boar's Head Tavern in Smithfield, and insisted on a Pint of Wine; and after I had taken it up, she said, Now you have got your Watch, you shall see I do not mind a Pint of Wine any more than you do, I will be a Pint with you; She had a pretty deal of Money in her Pocket then; I believe she deceived me in the pawning of the Watch.</p>

<p>Palmer. I will explain that a little: About 2 or 3 Months ago, I was going my Rounds, and met her, says she, Master, won't you give me a Dram? (she was very drunk) says I, you are too old to be a Whore now; there is no Body will have any thing to do with you, it is Time to leave it off now, and if you don't you will go to Hell into the Bargain. - She said if she could get half a Crown she would leave it off; that she had not half a Crown in the World; said I, it is hard that all you have in the World is not worth half a Crown; if I thought it would do you good, I would not value half a Crown, and I bid the Woman at the Chandler's Shop give her 2 s. and 6 d. and I would give it her again; said I, perhaps 5 Shillings will do you more Good, and the Woman gave her 5 Shillings by my Order: Poll, is not this Truth? [The Prisoner did not deny it]</p>
<p>Prisoner. You were upon the Bed with me when you missed your Watch, when you kissed me and hugged me, and called me, My Dear: Did not you find your Watch again your own self; I did not think you would expose yourself after this Rate.</p>
<p>Palmer. After a Month's Imprisonment, and starving alive, I should have thought you would have talked in another Manner; I submit it to the Court, whether they think I would have to do with such a Creature, as that, when there are fine Girls enough to be had - I thought, as I was Constable, I was very safe; I was not afraid; I thought they would not offer to rob me.</p>
