<p>Longbottom. On the eighteenth or nineteenth of May, the Prisoner came with two men to my house.</p>
<p>Q. What time did they come?</p>
<p>Longbottom. They came about noon, and they were talking about cloth; and they said they were going about this cloth to Scot's, and that they believed the cloth was damned, but sooner than the people of the house should have it, the owner should have it.</p>
<p>Q. Who said that, the Prisoner, or any body else?</p>
<p>Longbottom. It was another person said so to the Prisoner, and advised him to send a letter to Scot's, or to advertise it.</p>
<p>Q. Did the Prisoner say any thing to that?</p>
<p>Longbottom. He said he would go to Scot's; and presently there was a woman came in, and she advised him not to go to Scot's, for it would blow him.</p>
<p>Q. And did he go to Scot's?</p>
<p>Longbottom. He went out, and said he would go to Scot's.</p>
<p>Q. Did he return again?</p>
<p>Longbottom. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How long did he stay?</p>
<p>Longbottom. About an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Did the woman stay?</p>
<p>Longbottom. The woman staid all the time.</p>
<p>Q. When he returned, what did he say?</p>
<p>Longbottom. The woman asked him what he had done, and he said he had made an offer of part of the cloth, and nothing could be done.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any conversation between you and him?</p>
<p>Longbottom. I asked him whether he had lost any thing, and he said, he believed he had lost fifty pounds; said I, did you tell it? he said, it was not money, it was cloth.</p>
<p>Q. What cloth did he say it was?</p>
<p>Longbottom. He said it was superfine cloth. And there was one White, who was turn'd out of his work upon that account, came to my house, and spoke of the affair.</p>

<p>Longbottom. The second time he was carried before my Lord Mayor, he confessed the fact, and desired to clear the woman, for she was not guilty of it.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the Prisoner at the bar?</p>
<p>Scot. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What do you know of him?</p>
<p>Scot. The Prisoner at the bar came to demand a piece of cloth, which was brought when I was in bed, and asleep : He came several times about it; he came one night, about ten o'clock, with a woman in a cloak; and the next day two men came, and one of them threatened my maid, and said, if she said any thing to them, he would put her eye out with a cane; and the Prisoner said, the cloth was worth twenty pounds. I told a man of very good sense of it, and he advised me not to let the Prisoner have it, and I would not let him have it; for I said to my husband, keep it and he said he would keep it, and see whether it was advertised; and when it was advertised, he sent it home.</p>
<p>Q. When was it advertised?</p>
<p>Scot. It was advertised the next day, and my husband ordered, that there should be no money taken for the carrying it.</p>
<p>Q. Is that the cloth?</p>
<p>Scot. That is the cloth, I am sure, and I was angry with my maid, and gave her a slap on the face for taking it in, for I thought it was tea, and she run away from me upon that account.</p>

The Prisoner's aunt recommended her to me as a very good hand at washing, and I took her into my house; for I thought she had been set in scorn by her friends, on account of her having a sweetheart, and the first or second of June she lay at my house. I ordered my maid to let her have some victuals, and go to bed. I talked to her a good deal, and spoke very simpathizing to her; and I said, if she had

<p>Watts. I have valued it at ten pounds, and it cost me 11 l. 7 s. last September.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who took it?</p>
<p>Watts. No.</p>
<p>[The lid of the tankard was produced.]</p>

<p>Watts. Yes, I can swear to it by the solder on each side of the lid.</p>

<p>Q. Was it noon or night?</p>
<p>Scriven. It was night,</p>
<p>Q. Who is your mistress?</p>
<p>Scriven. I live with Mrs. Harvey, a pawnbroker in Houndsditch. I had a pretty many customers in the shop when the Prisoner came in, and after they were gone out, he said he wanted to ask me a question; I said, what is it? he asked me whether I bought plate, and I said I did not, unless I knew the person; he shewed me this lid, and I asked what he would have for it, and he asked ten shillings for it; I said, I believed it was stole; he asked me, whether I thought he stole it, and began to make words; I said I would stop it, and advertise it, and I did not doubt but I should find an owner; and I told him, if he would tell me his name, an d place of abode, I would return it him, if it was not owned, and he told me where he lived, but I found it was advertised in the paper: I went to Mr. Watts's with it, and he owned it to be the lid of his tankard.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you the right place of his abode?</p>
<p>Scriven. He told me pretty near it, it was in the next street. Mr. Watts sent for the silversmith he bought it of, and he said it was the lid of the tankard he sold Mr. Watts.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I told Mr. Scriven, that I found the lid.</p>

<p>Q. Did you draw any in this tankard for the Prisoner, that night the tankard was lost?</p>
<p>Rylance. I drew two tankards for him that night.</p>
<p>Q. What in this tankard, that was missing afterwards?</p>
<p>Rylance. Yes, and, to the best of my knowledge, this is the same lid. The Prisoner went into the fields with us, under pretence of shewing us where the body of the tankard was; he said, if he had his hands loose, he would tell us where it was.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174807060009"/>Q. What fields were these?</p>
<p>Rylance. Islington-Fields, by the ditches upon a dunghill.</p>
<p>Q. At that time did he own the taking of the tankard?</p>
<p>Rylance. He owned he had it, but he would not own he took it.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not own it, for I could never own what I never had; and they kicked me, and beat me about, and used me very ill; they promised me money, half guineas, and two guineas, if I would tell them where it was; and I was willing to accept of it, because I was poor, and wanted money, and I pretended to tell them where it was, but I could not tell.</p>

<p>Q. What might the value of the tankard be, that you sold to him?</p>
<p>Wilks. He gave me eleven pounds seven shillings for it. When the Prisoner was taken, he said, if we would let him, he would go with us, and shew us where he had hid the tankard.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not tell you so.</p>
<p>Wilks. You did tell us so. I will go further yet.</p>
<p>Prisoner. You may go as far as you please.</p>
<p>Wilks. I can go a little further yet. We went with him into the fields, and went on the backside of Islington two or three times; and he told us one place, then another, and we tried to find it, but could not, and then we brought him back before the Justice.</p>
<p>Q. What Justice?</p>
<p>Wilks. Justice Hole; and then he said where he had hid it, and insisted upon that to be the place, but they did not let him go; and there was a letter sent to Mr. White about it, and yesterday, in Newgate, he said he could tell where he had hid it.</p>
<p>Q. Have you any witnesses to call?</p>
<p>Prisoner. I have several here, but they are not come; my wife is here, and I believe she can call them. I have been a master of my business nineteen years, and never was before a Judge in my life before. I was very drunk that night, and I am sometimes mad and lunatick.</p>
<p>Capt. Reuben Harding sworn.</p>
<p>Q. What have you to say with regard to this affair?</p>
<p>Harding. My Lord, I know that the Prisoner has been deemed a lunatick person.</p>
<p>Q. When was he deemed so?</p>
<p>Harding. In the year 1745, when I served the office of churchwarden in Whitechapel Parish, and where he then lived, and I confined him to a mad-house.</p>
<p>Q. Was he lunatick at the time he stole this tankard?</p>
<p>Harding. I cannot tell that, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. How came they to let him abroad?</p>
<p>Harding. I suppose they did not think him so then; he was better for some time, but he was confined again afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know that?</p>
<p>Harding. Yes, my Lord, he has been confined in Bethlem, as I have been informed. I knew him a great many years before that, and never knew but what he bore a very good character.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any money in your pocket?</p>
<p>Hudson. Yes, but I cannot tell justly what it was, but it was silver; I am sure there was a shilling, and they took away all but my hat, wig, and slippers.</p>
<p>Q. Did you overtake any of these three men?</p>
<p>Hudson. Yes, I overtook Frost; and he said he was sorry for my distress, and he pitied me very much, and said he went into a ditch to save himself, and he helped me out of the ditch.</p>
<p>Q. Look at those two men again, Collins and Crone, and see whether they are the men.</p>
<p>Hudson. Yes, I am sure they are the men. I saw Frost afterwards, at the White-Swan, and treated him with a pot of beer; and when I saw him, I was sure he was one of the men, and I took him, and carried him before a Justice of the Peace.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174807060011"/>Q. Did Frost say any thing to you?</p>
<p>Hudson. He did not concern himself in any one thing in the world.</p>

<p>Q. Did you go to enquire after the other two?</p>
<p>Rouchead. Not till I went with Frost before Justice Poulson, and he said the same before the Justice, and desired to be admitted an evidence against the other two, but the Justice committed him to Newgate; and on Monday morning, about six o'clock, I took the constable with me, and went to the guard-room with Hudson, and I said to Hudson, if you see them, shake hands with them, and he did see Collins, and shook hands with him; and as soon as Hudson shook hands with him, I took him by the collar.</p>
<p>Q. Was he upon duty then?</p>
<p>Rouchead. Yes. Frost told me, they were both upon duty, and Crone was in the guard-room at the same time; I secured him, and had them before the Justice, and they were committed : The colonel was a little affronted that I should take them off the guard, and said, he would deliver them up, as soon as the guard was relieved.</p>
<p>Q. What did they say before the Justice?</p>
<p>Rouchead. They had a great many frivolous excuses, and Hudson said he had got into a skittle-ground with them at play, at the White-Horse, on the other side of Kilburn-Turnpike.</p>
<p>Jury. Did Justice Poulson admit Frost as an evidence?</p>
<p>Rouchead. He would have admitted him to have been an evidence at first, and Frost said he never touched the man, but knew the other two that did it; and afterwards Frost would have been an evidence, but the Justice told him he should have spoke sooner, it was too late, or else I believe he would have been admitted an evidence.</p>
<p>Pris. Collins. I said to the Prosecutor, if you have a mind to be a soldier, I can help you to money for us all, and I put my hand in his pocket, and put sixpence into it, and presently afterwards he was stripped, in order to fight my comrade, Crone, and he stripped himself stark naked, and said, he would not go along with us.</p>
<p>Q. You thought you had inlisted him then?</p>
<p>Collins. Yes; I put the sixpence into his pocket to be sure, and I thought he would be a soldier, for he said he would go through the world with me.</p>
<p>Q. What was the occasion of his stripping?</p>
<p>Collins. He was going to fight with my comrade, and I said there was no occasion to pull his clothes off.</p>
<p>Q. But you took his clothes away?</p>
<p>Collins. I never took any of his clothes, to take them away.</p>
<p>Pris. Crone. The Prosecutor challenged to fight with me, and I said I would not fight with him, and I went away directly.</p>
<p>Pris. Frost. I had been a haymaking, and the Prosecutor had left his fork in pawn for a penny; he followed me stark naked; I went into a house to drink a pint of beer, and the Prosecutor came in, and challenged me with robbing him.</p>

<p>Q. Did they call one another by their names?</p>
<p>Hudson. No, only comrade, and comrade.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any drink after you played?</p>

<p>Q. Did you pay for it?</p>
<p>Hudson. Yes; I laid a penny down, and left my pitchfork for the halfpenny.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body talk of putting sixpence into your pocket?</p>
<p>Hudson. I never heard such a word, as I wish God to be my judge.</p>
<p>Q. Did they say any thing to you about inlisting?</p>
<p>Hudson. No, they never said any such thing, as God is my judge.</p>
<p>Q. Now if you paid a penny, and left your pitchfork for a halfpenny, how could you have a shilling for them to take?</p>

<p>Q. Are you sure the windows were shut at night?</p>
<p>Barnard. I cannot say they were; it is possible they might be left open upon the account of the beat.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of a house do you keep?</p>
<p>Barnard. I have two houses together; the house that he broke into is let to two gentlewomen, and the other I live in myself, in Fisher's-Street, Red-lion-Square. The watchman was called by one of the maid-servants, and found the Prisoner wrapped up in a blanket, in my kitchen, lying upon two chairs.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I was drunk that Saturday night, and one of the plumber's men was as drunk as I, and whether I went in at the house, the two ladies live in, or not, I cannot rightly tell.</p>

I took my watch out of my fob, and put it into my coat pocket, and I was not afraid to see any body, for I had not much money in my pocket: He came up to me, and said, D - n you, Sir, your money. I struck him on the hand, run after him, and called out watch; and at the end of Neptune-Street there were two watchmen;

<p>Prisoner. I was going along with two women, and one of them stopped to tie her garter; I said, my dear, shall I tie it for you? then I was in the highway, and Mr. Milward called after me, and said, you rogue, have I got you? and charged the watch with me; I said, Gentlemen, shall I go along with you? and I did go along with them; but he only said, that I had abused him, and assaulted him.</p>

<p>Mr. Spencer (the constable). At the watch-house, Mr. Milward charged the Prisoner with an assault, and threatening to blow out his brains.</p>

<p>Touchfield. I know nothing tricking in him; I know him to be a man that follows his business, and does as other men do, and I believe he is an honest man.</p>
<p>Mr. Eyres (a ropemaker). The Prisoner is a ropemaker, and a very honest man, and I hope I shall employ him again. There is a spleen in the case; he was an evidence against his son. The Prosecutor has drove him away from his work by a press-gang, and the Prisoner said he was afraid to come to work, for fear he should send him on board a man of war. I take this, upon my life, to be only spite.</p>

<p>Fanaltena. She has nothing to sell; it is her own house, and she lives in it. About four weeks ago I was at her house, and she took my money out of my pocket; she took nine guineas.</p>
<p>Q. What made you go there?</p>
<p>Fanaltena. I came out of a publick-house, and was going to my lodging; she asked me for a pint of beer, and I went into her house; she said she had no beer, but brought two or three bottles of cyder; she asked for the money, and I gave her a guinea, but she would give me no change; and when I gave her this guinea, I had eight guineas more; I then fell asleep, and slept till about two o'clock, and she would have me pay for two bottles of cyder, or she would take my coat off.</p>
<p>Q. When did you lose this money?</p>
<p>Fanaltena. I lost it when I was asleep; and it is well known, to herself and the Justice, that she is the person that had it; she owned herself, that she took the money out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. What language was it in?</p>
<p>Fanaltena. In Dutch. She said before the Justice, that she took it out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He has been in my company for a fortnight, and before he went to sea. How did I steal the money from you?</p>
<p>Fanaltena. I will swear to it, and stand by it.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He was drunk, and gave the money into my hand. I wish the devil may carry me away, if he did not give me the money.</p>
<p>Fanaltena. I am sure I was not drunk, for I had only a share of a pot of beer, and I could drink ten before I should be touched.</p>
<p>Q. Was not you acquainted with her before?</p>
<p>Fanaltena. I might see her in the street, but I never was acquainted with her.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I can bring witnesses to prove it.</p>
<p>Mr. Barron. The Prosecutor lodges with me; and when the Prisoner was taken up, the headborough brought her to my house, and she talked good English, and she said she would give a note of hand for the money, if the Prosecutor would not carry her before the Justice, to be paid when her husband comes home.</p>
<p>Q. What did the Prosecutor charge her with?</p>
<p>Barron. He charged her with eight guineas, and she said she would give her hand seriven (that is a note of hand) for the money.</p>

<p>Sutton. She can speak English as well as I can</p>
<p>Prisoner. He came to my house every day.</p>
<p>Q. Ask her whether she meddled with his money?</p>
<p>Prisoner. He put the money into my hand, and he was as drunk as a hoy; he gave me the money but in the morning he repented that he gave it me, and I gave him three pounds twelve shillings back, in three guineas, and nine shillings.</p>
<p>Q. to Fanaltena. Did you receive three guineas and nine shillings back of her?</p>

<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174807060019"/>Q. What condition was you in then?</p>
<p>Beauchamp. I was not drunk, I was a little heavy headed; I said I was afraid of being locked out; she said I need not mind that, for she had a good lodging; I agreed to have a bed at her house, and paid her a shilling for it: we had a tankard of beer (I gave her six-pence, but she returned no money:) I took a drink of it, and laid down upon the bed about one in the morning.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to bed?</p>
<p>Beauchamp. No, there was no bed to lie on, but a sort of a blanket: about an hour afterwards Foster came and put his hand under the blanket, and he waked me in doing it; and then he made towards his wife (that woman) the Prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. Is she his wife?</p>
<p>Beauchamp. He calls her his wife; and then they both went out of the room, and presently I found my watch was gone.</p>
<p>Q. Did you attempt to lay hold of the watch when he took it from you?</p>
<p>Beauchamp. No, then I immediately got off the bed. for I had some valuable things in my pocketbook; then he came into the room again, and threatened me, and asked me why I did not go out; and he told me he would knock me on the head if I did not go out directly.</p>

<p>Q. to the Prosecutor. When you laid yourself down upon the bed, was Foster come home then?</p>
<p>Beauchamp. No, he went for some beer.</p>
<p>Pris. Kerr. My husband is at sea; he is at South-Carolina; I go a washing and scowering, and clean his room: The Prosecutor came by, and asked me to drink a pot of beer, and we went to Mr. Mason's, at the Bull's-Head; the Prosecutor said, Those that could not make a meal of me, ought to go to Bed supperless; the Prosecutor came and sat by me, and put his beer into my pot; I asked him what he wanted, he said he wanted a lodging, and he went home with me; he said he had no money, but he would leave a thing in my hand, which was as good as money, and we went to Jennings's, and had some punch.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I had nothing but beer all the day.</p>
<p>Pris. Kerr. And after drinking drams and punch, he asked me whether he should go to bed along with me; and though I never went to bed with any body but my husband, yet he importuned me so much, that I went to bed with him; he gave me his watch, and said he would come the next morning for it, and satisfy me, and give me something for my child and myself: I kept the watch two days, and when he came for the watch I went and shewed him where it was, and then he swore a robbery against me.</p>
<p>Q. You say you went to bed to him?</p>
<p>Pris. Kerr. Yes, and when I found myself in bed with a man, I got up.</p>
<p>Q. What time was that?</p>
<p>Pris. Kerr. About two o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Was he asleep, or awake?</p>
<p>Pris. Kerr. He was awake. I got out of bed, and went to my own child, and then Foster was breaking open his door to get in.</p>

<p>Clerk of the Ar. Gentlemen of the Jury, the several issues contained in this suggestion the Prisoner has denied, and thereupon issue is joined, and you are to try these issues between our sovereign Lord the King, and the Prisoner at the bar.</p>
<p>Coun. for the Crown. May it please your Lordship, and Gentlemen of the Jury, the Prisoner comes before the Court in the manner I am going to mention to you.</p>
<p>The Legislature considering the great progress the smugglers had made, the height they were got to, and the violences they had committed, thought it necessary to suppress this practice; and in order to do that, there was an Act of Parliament
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174807060023"/> made, to make it felony, without benefit of clergy, for three or more persons to be assembled together with fire arms, in order to be aiding and assisting, in running, landing, and carrying away uncustomed goods; for it was difficult to bring them to justice in the common way, by reason of the outrages they committed, and the damages they did in the country, and therefore the Legislature made an Act, that if they did surrender themselves, according to due course of law, they should have mercy, but if they put their country at defiance, and did not surrender themselves according to that Act of Parliament, they are guilty of felony; and in order to this, there are several steps, which are by that Act directed to be taken.</p>
<p>And gentlemen, the first step is to have the fact laid before a proper Magistrate upon oath, then that is to be laid before a secretary of state; then laid before his Majesty in council; an order made by his Majesty in council, and that order to be transmitted to the sheriff of the county where the offence was committed, and is to be proclaimed on the two next market-days, at two market towns near to the place where the fact was committed, and stuck up in the publick market-places of those towns, that the Prisoner might know what his offence was; then, by that Act of Parliament, he was to surrender himself, according to the directions of the Act; but if he did not surrender himself, he was to be convicted, as if he had been convicted of felony, in point of law; and this was done, upon account of that practice, which the Government thought so prejudicial to the publick.</p>
<p>My Lord, the Prisoner at the bar has been charged according to the directions of that Act of Parliament; he has been charged with being armed with fire arms, and assembled together, with three or more, to be aiding and assisting in running and landing uncustomed goods; and this has been laid before a proper Magistrate; and has been laid before the Duke of Newcastle, one of his Majesty's principal secretaries of state; has been laid before his Majesty in council, and an order made, and every thing has been done according to the Act of Parliament; therefore he is now, if these facts are proved, guilty of felony, and if he cannot disprove these things, he is attainted and convicted of felony; therefore it is incumbent upon us to prove these facts, and as you are a Jury according to the laws of the land, you are to try whether these facts are true, and if you find these facts, the Prisoner will have execution awarded against him, as a person attainted of felony.</p>
<p>Second Coun. for the Crown. My Lord, and gentlemen of the Jury, I will state to you what facts are to be proved, in order to have execution awarded against the Prisoner; and these facts are contained if the suggestion, which has been opened to you, by the gentleman who spoke before me.</p>

<p>Gentlemen, the next thing to be proved, is, that this order was published in the two next succeeding London Gazettes, and we shall prove to you, that this order was published in these two London Gazettes: Then we shall prove, that, on the 8th of September, this order was transferred to the sheriff of the county of Suffolk; and that he caused this to be proclaimed at Dunwich and Saxmundham, being two market towns near to the place where the fact was committed; and we shall prove, that these two market towns are near to the place, and that this order was placed up in the market-places of those towns; and then he is to prove, that he did surrender himself; but if he did not surrender himself, gentlemen, you will find the issues for the King.</p>
