The Man had an oaken stick with a tuck in it, he pointed the tuck to my breast, that I should not take it up; then he took it up on the point of his tuck, and I turned about and took it off the spear. While I was turning about, the prisoner got hold of my watch-chain. He pulled it with such force, that the chain broke at the swivel. I catched it in my hand; he run down Queen-street, the other three run cross the way, I did not observe them how they got off; I cried out stop thief, and run after the prisoner to the bottom of Pancras-lane, and there I laid hold of him. I carried him to the Counter, and the next morning he was brought before Alderman Whitaker, and he committed him to Newgate. The prisoner was never out of my sight till I took him.</p>
<p>Q. How long was this about their stopping you in Cheap-side.</p>
<p>Lee. About a minute, or a minute and half, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain the prisoner is the person that took the chain and the handkerchief out of your pocket?</p>

She lodged at my house; his wife abused him very much in language: the prisoner desired her to go to bed several times, she would not. I at last went to her, and said, if she would not go to bed, and cease this noise, I would charge the watch with her; the other two chairmen that were drinking with him, paid their reckoning, and went away, and left the prisoner and his wife together: she staid about a quarter of an hour scolding at him, at last she went out at the house-door, and he followed her: they had not been out of the house above a minute, but she returned with her hand to her neck, and said she was hurt. I saw the blood run over her hand, she sat down on a form, she took her hand and apron from her neck, and I saw the blood fly out of her neck. I went to the door, and the prisoner was sitting by the watchman on the bench; I told him what he had done, saying, you have murdered your wife: says he, I have not; he and the watchman came in where she was: so I charged the watchman with him, the house was full of people, and I did not hear what she said. Before I went with him to the watch-house, I took the knife out of his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Did you perceive any blood upon it?</p>
<p>Baker. I did not, my Lord. I led him to the watch-house; he said there was no occasion to hold him, for he would not run away: this was the Saturday night, and she lived till the Sunday sevennight following. She came to my house on the Tuesday after; but I was busy, and never spoke to her; she went up stairs to change her clothes, and desired me to bail her husband the prisoner out of the Gate-house. He is a chairman, a very hard working man; I have known him eight or nine years, and she was a very foul-mouth'd woman.</p>

On the 13th of May, about ten a clock at night, I happened to be drinking a pint of beer in this house, I saw the deceased strike the prisoner several times on his head and shoulders; he appeared very good-humoured, and did not strike her, as I saw. He desired her to go to bed, she would not: she went out of the door, and he followed her; she returned in about a minute's time with her hand up to her neck; I did not perceive the blood at that time; she cried out, the rogue shall not murder me: she took her hand from her neck, and I saw the blood spout out of it; he came in a little time after, and the people told him, he had murdered his wife, and would be hanged; he sat down on a bench, and smiled, and said, he did not care, he was glad of it. The landlord took hold of him, and asked if he had got a knife about him. The prisoner said he had got never a one. I saw the landlord take the knife out of the prisoner's breeches pocket, I took it out of the landlord's hand.</p>
<p>Q. Was it bloody?</p>
<p>Daliey. It was a little bloody, it was fresh blood being moist, I put the knife in my pocket, and paid my reckoning, and went out of the house.

On the Sunday in the afternoon the deceased was brought to St. George's hospital, I examined her, and found a wound on the right side of her neck, it had been dressed by a Surgeon the day before; and as the woman seemed in very good health, and no bad symptoms, I did
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174907050004"/> not remove the dressings that day; but in dressing it the next day, I found the wound pretty deep, but I did not apprehend it to be mortal then: she continued seemingly in very good health till Friday morning, and eat the common diet as is there allowed: she was then seized suddenly with a fit, was never sensible afterwards, and died the Sunday following. The reason of her having this fit I apprehend was owing to the violent passion she threw herself in for the concern of her husband being in prison, as she had shewed a great concern for him all the time she had been in the Hospital; she once asked me to sign a note, to get him released out of prison.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think this wound she had received on her neck, was the cause of her death?</p>
<p>Maplethorp. I believe the bad consequences that followed the wound, were the occasion of her death.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have been married to the deceased about four years; she was a very honest woman; she was given to a glass of liquor. I came into my landlord's house with two men with me on the 13th of May. My wife abused me with her tongue, calling me many names, and beat me: she was very passionate, and said she would go away. I said she should not go away: I flung the knife out of my hand, but did not think of hurting so much as a dog or cat: she said she was hurt, and I was committed to the Gate-house; she sent me eighteen pence, knowing I had no money, and she sent word, she would come and get me out on the Tuesday following; she came, and called for a tankard of beer, and we drank it together; she paid for it, and gave me six-pence, and said it was she herself that was to blame; after we desired God to bless each other, she went to the Hospital directly.</p>

I was at supper with my fellow servants, and the prisoner came in with his wife, and Mr. Smith the deceased came in with his whip in his hand; the prisoner was in the back room, Mr. Smith went up to the door, and knock'd with his knuckles; presently the door flew open, and I saw the prisoner come out; I heard a shreek out, my fellow-servant took hold of the prisoner, and I took the knife out of his hand. It was shewed in Court, a long Clasp knife with a sharp point. Mr. Smith went into the street, and desir'd a Surgeon might be sent for.</p>
<p>Q. Was the knife open?</p>
<p>Carpenter. It was, my Lord.</p>
<p>Q. Was it bloody?</p>
<p>Carpenter. There was some blood upon it, I helped the deceased up stairs, and laid him down on the bed.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever hear any quarrelling between them before this?</p>
<p>Carpenter. I have heard the deceased abuse the prisoner in his own house, calling him rogue and scoundrel, telling him, he had no business there; saying, he himself was landlord.</p>

The prisoner and the deceased came and rushed forward towards the street; who came first, I cannot tell: I was sitting behind the last witness almost in the dark, I went out and laid hold of the prisoner, while the other witness took a knife out of his hand; in the fright I did not see the knife. I was servant to the prisoner, he is a very honest man, he always appeared as such to me.</p>
<p>Husband Messinger. I am a Surgeon; when I was called to the deceased, I found him with his bowels lying out of his body, which was very soon after it happened. It was my judgment that he could not live, and I told all about me so; he lived near three days, in which time I visited him six times; he was sensible during the whole till a little before he died; I never saw him insensible: he did not give me any account how it happen'd.</p>
<p>Q. Do you think that wound was the cause of his death?</p>
<p>Messinger. I believe it was; but how he receiv'd it, I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have been turned out of my own house by that man into the street, and abused by him, and have been driven out of my senses.</p>

I was present when the accident happen'd; I was not his servant then, I was there for a pint of beer; I was standing upon the stairs, and I heard the prisoner say, let any man open the door upon his peril. Mr. Smith said, he would do for him presently, he would have a baily there in half an hour's time; he pushed open the door with his hand, the prisoner met him, and fetched a blow at him; but I saw no weapen he had.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever know the prisoner guilty of passion?</p>
<p>Christian. No, I never did. I know this Smith has been a great enemy to him, and has troubled him many times.</p>
<p>Q. What do you think might be the reason of his thus using the prisoner?</p>
<p>Christian. I believe he was greater with the prisoner's wife than he should be.</p>

Her throat and wind-pipe were cut a-cross, almost from ear to ear: said I, you rogue, do not stir, she is dead, and you shall be hanged; I got hold of him, and took the knife out of his hand. I was obliged to strike him twice before I could get it out of his hand. [The knife was shewed in Court, a case-knife with a round point.] here is the blood on it, his hands trembled, and he swore and curs'd.

When I returned, I found the strangest alteration, she looked quite cold and black upon me, in private she would use me very barbarously. On the Friday-night before this happened, I took her to task, saying, What is the Reason of this alteration? She called me Old Dog, and hit me a blow on my mouth, and made my nose bleed. Betwixt 4 and 5 o'clock next morning she got up, and swore (I never heard her swear before) she would never lie in a bed with me more, saying, she would go out of the house or I should. I did not come down stairs till about two hours afterwards; when I came down, I asked her the reason of her usage last night? I kick'd her back-side two or three times, saying, I have a good mind to turn you out of the house (she encouraged that very boy to use me ill, and all the people of the house looked black upon me.) The man of the house came down, and said, I desire none of this; if she is your wife, she is my servant. I went out, and staid till about 6 o'clock. I desired, at my return, to be reconciled: she bid me be gone, and said, I should not lie in a bed where she lay: said I, then go and get my things; she went very willingly up stairs, and tied my things up, (this was about ten o'clock) and came and perfectly shoved me out of the house, I thought it was a folly to return. I went on board the vessel, and related the story to an acquaintance there; he desired me to go and be reconciled. The tide served, I took a wherry, and all my clothes, and came to the back-door, I believe, about half an hour after 3 o'clock in the morning. I knocked there, and put my clothes upon a place; I said to a man, I desire you will take care of these things, and I will satisfy you, while I go up street to see for a house open; I found one, and went in, and called for a pint of beer. When I returned, the man and things were gone: I asked people after them, but could not hear of them. The things were taken in by my wife, she opened the door, and looked earnestly at me, then she shut it, and would not let me in; so I knocked at the door, and no door opened. I went away to the house where I came from, and staid there till about eight o'clock. When I came in, I asked every body about the things, no-body knew any thing of them. I did not see my wife till a good while after; at last I saw her, and ask'd her about the things: she said, D - n you, I know no business you, or your things, have here. Do you think, said I, I will go away without letting the world know the reason? besides, I owe the landlord money, and I shall pay him before I go away. When she came into the kitchen, it was to toast a bit of bread upon the point of that knife. I leaned my back against the bench, and talked to her very seriously; she told me, she wanted no discourse with me. I desired to make it up, and went to salute her; she clapped both her hands against me, and pushed me away, and then took the knife, and flung it at me with all the violence in life. I catched up the knife, and fetched a stroke at her, and knew not where she was cut; she started and run from me: I looked after her, and saw her drop. I never offered to run away.</p>

<p>Q. Which way were they running?</p>
<p>Priest. Out of Swithin's-lane into Cannon-street. The gentleman stopped at the watch house door, at the corner of Swithin's-lane, and desired me to pursue the man; I pursued him, he ran up Wallbrook, fell down, and before he could get up again I collared him, and called to a watchman for assistance, which he did; we carried him back to the watch-house; the gentleman that was robb'd was gone when we got there. The prisoner was carried that night to the Poultry-counter.</p>
<p>Q. Are you very sure the prisoner is the man that came running out of Swithin's-lane?</p>
<p>Priest. He is the very man that was running as hard as he could, and the prosecutor pursuing, the gentleman was very near him; he was searched, there was about nine-pence, and a small clasp knife in his pockets.</p>

Upon my returning to the watch-house, Mr. Priest, the prisoner, and two of our watchmen were there. Mr. Priest gave a particular account how he saw Mr. Hane pursuing to the end of the Lane, and how he took him; giving the same account he does now. I examined the prisoner of his being there, and his running away in that manner? His answer was, he saw a riot and quarrel, and he was afraid of being drawn into it. I then asked him, Who he was, or what he was? he gave me no satisfactory answer as to his character; I searched him, and found as before mentioned. I found a pocket-book in his jacket, in which was his discharge from the King's service. I carried him to the Counter; the next morning he was examined by Alderman Winterbottom; he was there asked, why he run away, if he was an innocent person? his answer was, He heard there had been a robbery, and he ran away fearing he should be taken up by the watch. The Alderman told him, if he was an innocent person he ought to have gone and assisted the person robbed.</p>

As soon as the out-cry was made, we came to the gate, and saw two fellows run up the lane; they, I look upon, to be the other two men, they ran towards Lumbard-street. I went next morning to the Poultry-Counter, and took two men with me, to whom I had given the description, and looked on the prisoner, and found he answered to the description I had given. I then did, and still think, he was one of the three men I saw standing there.</p>

I went there to dine, and having sat down a little while, my servant coming out of the kitchen with some table-beer, saw a man running out at the door; i. e called out and immediately run into the fore-parlour and cry'd out, the plate is all gone, and immediately run out at the door, and I after her, the turning being so short he was got out of sight; I went through the King's-head tavern into the middle of Holborn, there I stood about a minute looking to see for a man running, and I saw the prisoner cross over to go into Gray's-inn-lane; he made a stop and saw me, and immediately took to his heels, that gave me a suspicion he must be the man: he running made me run, I pursued him down Gray's-inn-lane, he ran into a court, and a woman said, there is a man gone up the court. I ran to the farther end of it, I saw no body: said another woman there is a man in a brown coat gone into that house; as soon as I came to the door the prisoner was coming down the stairs again; I laid fast hold of him by the collar, saying, I have caught you, and guilt appear'd in his face immediately. I said, sirrah, you have robb'd me: he was in a great flutter, he denied he knew any thing of it, so I was pulling him from the house in order to put him in a coach, and a person near us saw something shine in his hand, who said, he has got a pen-knife in his hand, which, when we took them out of his hand were two of my silver salt-shovels; said I, whatever you brought in that bundle must be in this house. His excuse for running was, that he saw a man running in the street, and he ran after him; said I, where had you these two silver shovels? he said, the man drop'd them upon the stairs, and I took them up. I had him before the Justice and he

When I was gone to Justice Fielding's there were three or four neighbours staid about the door where I took him, they search'd and found the plate in the house, ( it is in court, and the witness that found it.) I cannot swear to the prisoner's face, but I can say it was such a man which I saw in Gray's-inn-lane, with a brown coat on, and something in a bundle, and I can swear to the size of the man: this is the apron that was tied about him, which the plate was found in. The plate was in the Buffet at the time I removed out of the fore-parlour to the back parlour.</p>

<p>Q. Give us an account of what you saw at that time.</p>
<p>Barret. There was a cutter came ashore with about ten ton of goods, tea and other things; the tea was packed up in oil-skin bags containing 25 pounds a bag; I saw the prisoner there, he had a brace of pistols and a carbine or blunderbuss; I saw him at work with others in landing and loading the tea: when the custom-house officers came there were three pieces fir'd, then they drew up 12 in a rank; he was then amongst the horses loading them, I saw him carrying the tea away, he drove 3 horses from the beech, there were above fifty horses went away loaded, the prisoner went into the rank the second firing; there were I believe 60 or 70 pieces discharg'd by the smuglers.</p>

I remember this 30th of March there were near sixty persons arm'd, the prisoner had a brace of pistols and a carbine or blunderbuss, I know not which; there was a cutter lying off there call'd the Old Molly, there was tea brought on shore from on board her in oilskin bags, about the quantity of eight ton; I saw the prisoner help load the horses, and drive some before him from the beech; I was just gone away as the custom-house officers came, but heard the firing at a distance.</p>

I remember this gang of smuglers very well, there must be upwards of fifty; I am a custom-house officer, I went down with the other officers: I believe there were five or six and twenty arm'd when we came down, and about 12 or 14 fired upon us at first. There were about 18 or 20 custom-house officers of us, and some country-people to assist us; we got behind a marsh wall, then we fired at them, and they fired at us, I believe upwards of seventy pieces; they gave ground, and at last drop'd their goods, and went away two or three upon a horse; the prisoner rode by me with a man behind him; the man had a pistol in his hand without hat or wig; the prisoner had a brass piece flung behind him, he was on a bayish horse; we made a seizure of upwards of 3000 weight of tea, there were some half anchors of brandy, some cambrick and a deal of old cloaths, and some rack that I suppose came from the Indies.</p>
<p>Jervice Cooper. I am a custom-house officer, I was there when this seisure was made; there were 60 or 70 of the smuglers, and many gone away loaded before we came; we took some of their arms and 3664 pounds weight of tea in the usual paccage of uncustomed goods, and some other goods. I did not know one person there.</p>
