<p>William Austin. On the 30th of August last, between 1 and 2 in the morning, I heard a noise, and it being moon-light, I went to sleep again, and slept about an hour and an half, and then I got up, and found my house was broke open, and the chamber-window up one pair of stairs open, and this knife lying by it, and a pane of glass was taken out.</p>
<p>Q. Are there shutters to this window?</p>
<p>Austin. No; and the next day there was 19 yards of velvet missing; there was more than 19 yards.</p>
<p>Q. Who does it belong to?</p>

He said he had given a man a pot of beer, but he could pay himself for it; so I agreed to go along with him.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you what he was to do?</p>
<p>Lewis. Yes; and he said he could not do without a ladder; but I lent him a hand, and helped him up, and he took a knife out of his pocket, and took out a pane of glass, and went in at the window. This is the knife.</p>
<p>Q. How long did he stay there?</p>
<p>Lewis. About 10 minutes, and brought a bundle to the window, and threw it into my hands.</p>
<p>Q. What was it?</p>
<p>Lewis. It was rolled up; I felt of it, and found it to be velvet, and then he jumped down, and we both went away to a young woman's house in Golden-lane and about 9 o'clock we carried it to the house of one Life Chitty, a Jew.</p>
<p>Q. Did you leave it there?</p>
<p>Lewis. Yes; he laid it upon the bed, and asked him 7 s. a yard for it; and the Jew told him he asked too much money for it; and a person came and took the velvet before the money was brought.</p>
<p>Q. Where does this Jew live?</p>
<p>Lewis. He lives in Gravel-lane in Houndsditch. A person came into a house there, and asked whether

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174809070005"/>Q. What made you suspect the prisoner?</p>
<p>Taylor . Because he and another man, who is now in prison for the murder of a man, came into my shop, and bought several things, and pretended they could speak no English; and I was forced to shew them in Portugal money what the things were worth.</p>
<p>Q. What did they buy?</p>
<p>Taylor. Sometimes silver buckles, and sometimes other things. They asked for something, and I shewed them 12 guineas, as the price of the goods, and they put their hands among them, and mixed them . They came again the next day, and my man charged them with it, and they said they belonged to the Tripoli ambassador; but when I went to the ambassador's house, they knew nothing of them: and I charged the man at the bar with stealing the 2 guineas, and he took me aside, and said he would give me the 2 guineas. I said I did what I did for the sake of Justice.</p>
<p>Prisoner . You say you produced 12 guineas, and that the prisoner and the other man mixed their hands among the money; but you cannot say the prisoner took it.</p>
<p>Taylor. This man was the nearest to me, and I believe he had the money; for the prisoner finger'd the money.</p>
<p>Q. Did the other touch it?</p>
<p>Taylor. I believe not.</p>
<p>Mr. Brugar. I am servant to Mr. Taylor. The prisoner was in the shop at the time Mr. Taylor said he pulled out 12 guineas, and another man was along with him. I don't know how many guineas there were.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I desire he may be asked whether I had not money upon the counter.</p>
<p>Brugar. He had money of his own upon the counter, but I did not think of that before.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure whether it was Mr. Taylor's money, or not, that he finger'd?</p>
<p>Brugar. Upon my word I cannot be sure.</p>

<p>Courtman . I gave him the full value, and more. I think it was 5 s. 3 d. and he said he would come again. On the Monday he came again, and I not being at home, my wife bid him come again. He came on the Tuesday, and brought some more; I asked him how he came by them; he said he made up brushes for himself: I told him, if he would bring any body to prove them to be his property, he should have the money for them; and on Wednesday he brought a woman, who said they were his property: I said, these are stolen, and I know them to be so; and then they both fell down on their knees, and he said he had stole them from his master, one Mr. Lyon, in Crooked-lane: but I found that it was not so, but that he stole them from Mr. Pickle.</p>

<p>Q. Did you lose any money on the 23d of August?</p>
<p>Pearce . I lost two 36 s. pieces, a moidore, and a half moidore.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lose any guineas?</p>
<p>Pearce. I had a great many guineas, but I am certain to 8 guineas, and 12 or 14 half guineas, that I lost: my wife miss'd the money, and that night the prisoner was brought home in a chair, very drunk.</p>
<p>Pris. Counc. Did you see the prisoner offer your wife any money?</p>
<p>Pearce. I was busy, and did not see it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you think any thing of that being your money?</p>
<p>Pearce. I did not suspect it at that time; and my wife was persuaded to get more money from him, in order to keep it for him; but he was very obstinate , and would not part with any. My wife seeing him have so much money, said she was afraid the cobler had robb'd us; and I found I was robbed, and got a warrant to take him up on suspicion on the Tuesday, and carried him before a justice; and he was very rude and faucy to the justice; and on the Friday following he was ask'd how he came by the money, and he said, where's the letter the constable took from me when he took the money? And the constable said, he did not take any letter or paper from him. He was asked again how he came by the money. At first he said he had it sent him for the use of his sister, and afterwards he said, how do you know but I earn'd it? for I have got 6 s. a day in my stall. My wife said, the more rogue you, that you did not pay your way as you went. I never before saw him master of a guinea in my life; and he said before he would say any more, he would do thus [making a motion with his hand, as if he would be hang'd if he did] and his sister brought my wife half a guinea.</p>
<p>Pris. Coun. Where was it you kept this money?</p>
<p>Pearce. It was in a chest of drawers in the room where we lay, and the drawers were lock'd.</p>
<p>Q. Did you mark your money?</p>
<p>Pearce. No; I never mark any money.</p>
<p>Q. Did not the prisoner give a moidore to your wife, in order to keep it for him, after he had paid the rent?</p>
<p>Pearce. He did not know whether he had given it to her, or not; and he did not know it the next day.</p>
<p>Q. Does not he bear a good character in the neighbourhood?</p>
<p>Pearce. His neighbours will give him a good character.</p>
<p>Q. What is his character , to your knowledge ?</p>
<p>Pearce. He will stick to his work sometimes , and sometimes he will run out, and lie out o'nights.</p>
<p>Mrs. Pearce. The day I was robb'd, in the morning, I put two 36 s. pieces, and other money, into a purse; the whole was 20 l. and upwards.</p>
<p>Q. Was you there when the prisoner was brought home?</p>
<p>Pearce. Yes; and he had a great deal of gold and silver. I ask'd him for my money, and he put his hand in his pocket, and gave me a guinea; and I robb'd the guinea off, and said there was 14 s. 3 d. halfpenny remaining; and he put his hand in his pocket, and gave me a 27 s. piece, and afterwards he gave me a guinea more, for he had forgot that he had given me the moidore. I went up to look for the money, and the purse and all was gone. I said to my husband , I am afraid the cobler has robb'd us; because he had not a farthing in the morning, and was so flush of money then: he said, God forbid; and we went up, and it was gone.</p>
<p>Q. What did he say, with respect to how he came by the money?</p>
<p>Pearce. He said a staymaker brought his sister 12 l. out of Ireland.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say any more?</p>
<p>Pearce. He said he would hang before he did: and he said afterwards, how do you know but what I earn'd it? for he had got 6 s. a day in the place. And I said, the more shame for you, not to pay your debts.</p>
<p>Mr. Lyne (Constable .) Mrs. Pearce came to me, and begg'd I would go with her to take up the prisoner, which I did; and I search'd him, and found in his breeches a 36 s. piece , 1 guinea, 3 half guineas, and some silver. I examined his thighs, and felt a bunch; and I opened the knees of his breeches, and cut a hole, and took some money out which was sewed up; and I cut open another part of his breeches, and took money out of that. I ask'd him how he came by the money, and he bid me set down a person's name, and that person could tell me how he came by the money; but he said the man was a stranger, and just come out of Ireland, and he could not find him: and he said, the letter that I took from him would give an
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174809070007"/> account how he came by the money, and that the money was sent to his sister ; but I did not take any letter from him. I asked him before the Justice , how much money was sent to his sister; and he said about 12 l. or 12 guineas. Said I, you have given an account of more than that already, with what you have paid; and he said he would say no more; if he did, he would come here [ making a motion, as if he would sooner be hang'd] and 3 or 4 days before he had not money to buy a pint of beer, and I gave him a pint of beer my self .</p>

I said they were not worth 9 d. and she paid him 3 s. 6 d. and he said it was very lucky, and swore that he had not a farthing in his pocket before, and hoped it would be good luck.</p>

<p>Coun. for the Crown. I am counsel for the King against the prisoner at the bar, and his charge is , being assembled, with divers other persons, to the number of 40, at Horsey , in the county of Norfolk, in order to be aiding and assisting in running and landing uncustomed goods, &c.</p>
<p>Gentlemen, on the 10th of March, 1746. one Bailey, who kept a coffee-house in Yarmouth , had occasion to go to Horsey , and there was a gang of smuglers there, and they expected their cutter, and thought he came as a spy; and they went to one Manning's house, where this Bailey was, and whipp'd Bailey in a cruel manner; then they brought him out of Manning's house, and carried him into the church-yard, and brought out a caseknife , and told him they would cut his throat if he did not answer all the questions they asked him: and they asked him what he came there for; he said he came to see his acquaintance Manning: and they tied a rope about his neck, and almost strangled him, and tied him up to an arm of a tree, and left him almost dead. And the next step they took to get this man to shew his great thanks to them was, that they made him down on his knees, and thank them for not hanging him; and made him swear damnation to his soul if he revealed what they did; and then they let him go. And they took him into custody again the next day, but they did not treat him so ill as they did before. But, gentlemen, you must consider, that he was in very great terror; and this man having been treated as a spy without foundation, he thought, as I have been treated so ill, now I will see what these people are about; and he very cunningly pretended to be going another way; and he followed them so close , as to see what was going forward; and he saw a gang, to the number of 40 or 50, running and landing of goods; and he says the prisoner at
