<p>Mr. Humes. Coming near my own house, seeing a struggle between the woman and the prisoner I heard the woman mention every thing before they were found upon the prisoner; and after, I saw the tin pot, spectacles, and wooden spoon taken from him.</p>

Yes, said he, and added, your brother is making me a suit of mourning for my brother. Said I, pray Sir, what is my sister's name? How can I tell that? said he, and seem'd to frown upon me; then, said I, do you know my brother's fore-man's name, or any of the journeymen? He said, he did not: this conversation was after we was past the alehouse, and I walking by him on foot. We came to a little town call'd Hays; then he pull'd out 3 gold rings, and said he was a goldsmith, and was going to receive 4000 l. and told me if I had only 1000 l. it would make me a man for ever. So it would, said I; then we was within a furlong or two of the Angel in Hay's parish; and he would have had me buy these rings; I said, I had no knowledge as to the value of them, nor money to pay for them; said he, one is a diamond ring.</p>
<p>Q. Did you buy them?</p>
<p>Rogers. No, my lord, I did not; then he put his horse before me, and said, how much money have you got, saying, I want you to lend me 10.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lend him 10 s?</p>
<p>Rogers. No, my lord, I did not. Said he, I will have 10 s. of your money; I pull'd out my money, which was 14 s. and held it in my hand; he took 9 s. of it. and bid me keep the other 5; he let me go a little farther, then said, I will have the silver buckles you told me about, and do not make words; I pull'd them
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="174910110007"/> out, and he brought his horse up to me and wretch'd them out of my hand, in spight of my note, they were bought for 18 s. I had, in our conversation, told him of these, which I was carrying down, they were shoe and knee buckles. Then he rode off to the sign of the Angel, and I ran after him as hard as I could; before he got in at the house, I saw the Gentleman take his horse, and put him into the stable: he went into the house, and I after him, thinking to secure him, but my heart failed me; the prisoner bid me sit down, which I did; I eat with him, more for fear than good will.</p>
<p>Q. Why did your heart fail you?</p>
<p>Rogers. I was fearful he had more of his gang in the house. The man of the house ask'd him what his name was, he said, his name was Jibson; said I, notwithstanding you have denied your name before, I know your name now: hush, hush, said he, then he pull'd out money, and paid for what he and I had eat and drank; then I went out, and went forward to a heath, there I sat down, considering what to do, whether to go forward or return. In about an hour the prisoner came riding along, I jump'd up and took hold of his bridle, saying, let me have my money and buckles again, that you robb'd me of; he made out of the road, and turned into a long-lane. I still held fast by the reins of the bridle; he pull'd out a cutlass from under his right-side, and cut me cross the head, and also my clothes very much ( he shewed the scar about an inch and a quarter long near his right ear) I believe I kept my hold for about 40 yards, the horse running hard, and trampling on me: he got from me, and left me bleeding on the ground; then I came back to the road; some people said, here is a man that has been fighting; there came a coach, and I told the people what had happened, and beg'd I might ride behind the coach to London, which they granted; then I related the affair to my brother. In the prisoner's and my conversation, he had told me he was going to Uxbridge; I went to the house he had mentioned, where I was told, he had laid there the night the fact was done, and that he pull'd out the silver buckles, and put them in his shoes and knee; there I was informed he died the Oxford-arms in Tyburn-old; I went there on the 18th of the same month, and saw him coming up the street; I step'd into the house, and told a man, who assisted in taking him. We took him before a justice, where he confest the two pair of buckles was mine, saying I gave them him to carry, which I never did, and likewise that I lent him the money: he had the buckles in his shoes and breeches knees, from whence he took them, and gave them to me.</p>
<p>Questions from the Prisoner. Whether or no it was not the proposal of the prosecutor, to offer to lend me this money, while he was riding my horse, as I had told him I was short of money?</p>
<p>Rogers. I did not offer to lend him my money.</p>
<p>Q. Did not he bid me take another shilling, the time he was giving me the 9 shillings?</p>
<p>Rogers. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did I not offer to pledge a gold-ring for the money ?</p>
<p>Rogers. No, my lord, he did not; he wanted me to buy the rings, which was before he took the 9 shillings.</p>
<p>Q. Whether I did not pay 3 s. 3 d. for the prosecutor's beer and victuals at one house, and 15 d before?</p>
<p>Rogers. My lord, he did pay for me, both before and after the robbery.</p>
<p>Q. Did not the prosecutor appoint to meet me, at the King's-arms at Uxbridge, to have his things again?</p>

Mr. Manning reply'd, you silly rogue, he will not come alone, for here are many rogues in town now.

According to the package of the tea and casks, it was intended to be run; the tea was in oil-skin bags, which held about 26 or 27 pounds weight each, and the casks were slung with ropes; I saw a general loading, and saw them go off in form, two and two, towards Winterton side.</p>
<p>Cross examin'd. Should you remember the faces of either of these seven or eight you saw at that time, was you to see them now?</p>

(This was a little room joining to the shop backwards) I desir'd the prisoner to open such a buroe, telling him I had a search warrant, &c. he open'd it, and I found there two drops of ear-rings in a pen-case, which I believe to be mine; I deliver'd these things to the constable, and desir'd a person present to fetch my wife; she came, and I desir'd to know if she could recollect these things; she made answer, that one drop may be like another, and said she could not swear to them; then she said, if they are mine, the middle one has been lately mended in a remarkable clumsey manner; the constable having them in his hand, he look'd at them, and said, madam, I believe this is it; at her seeing it, she made oath that it was her's; upon that I desir'd the constable to take charge of the prisoner; we took him to Justice Fielding's, and he was committed; the prisoner told me before he went there, that he had bought every thing, and I should have them all again if I would make things easy, if they were above ground. I told him I should do nothing but what the law would permit; he said he bought them of Moll Blare; two days afterwards he sent

I bought them and my partner paid the money: when I call'd again, he said he should have a pair of ear-rings, by which I might get three or four pounds profit; this was, I think, about the 15th or 16th of July; I kept the diamonds three or four days and sold them for 5 s. profit; he call'd about a fortnight or three weeks after this, and said it I would call such a day I should see the ear-rings, but I was not to bring my partner along with me; said I, I can do no business without him; but he insisted upon my coming without him, &c. I went and saw the ear-rings in a little back room in his house where I broke up the rings; he said he would have 12 l. for them; I said, I would give him 6 l. 15 s. about a day or two after he said, if I would break them up I should have them; I said they were too good to be broke up; afterwards he gave me a caution not to tell one Robins that I had seen the ear-rings at his house: about a fortnight after this Mr. Robins came to me and shew'd one pair of ear-rings; said I, you bought these of Johnson; but afterwards I found he did not: but after Mr. Robins heard of this robbery, he came to me to know if I could describe these ear-rings I had seen at the prisoner's; he told me a worthy gentleman had been robbed, and carried me to Mr. Hughes's shop; I described the ear-rings by drawing them with my pencil, to Mrs. Hughes; she said, upon the account of the value they could not be hers; she particularly described the three rings that were broke up; then said I, these ear-rings must be yours.</p>
<p>Q. to Mr. Hughes. What do you value the earrings at?</p>
<p>Mr. Hughes. About 18 l.</p>

<p>Mr. Pain. I am a pawn-broker and live in Bow-street, Bloomsbury; on the 6th of March last, the prisoner at the bar offer'd a silver waiter and a silver pint cup to pledge, part of these goods: I had known her some years; but she appeared not so credible as before I had known her; I would not lend her any money upon them; she said she was sent with them by a person of repute; I told her if she did not bring me the person I would not advance any money upon them; she went to fetch the person, and in the interim I had notice sent me from Goldsmith's hall about these things being stole; she got off then, and I never saw her since till last Friday, when she brought me some camblet. I stop'd the prisoner, and she confess'd she had committed this robbery; we have found the waiter; it was sold to a silver-smith in Westminster, and the cup he had melted down.</p>

I being in liquor, said, I'll give you a dram if that will do you any good.</p>
<p>Q. How old might she be, do you think ?</p>
<p>Butler. I believe about fourteen or fifteen years of age, she was a little creature; she had me into these people's house; I ask'd what they had got to drink, they said nothing but gin; I saw the woman, I cannot say I saw the man; then I called for a quartern of gin; the woman saw me in liquor, and ask'd me to go and lie down on the bed.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lie down ?</p>
<p>Butler. Yes I did, my lord, and lay for some hours.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body go with you?</p>
<p>Butler. Somebody went with me, I do not know who, but she did not stay with me; I lay there about two or three hours: after I awak'd my buckles were taken out of my shoes; and my money out of my pocket.</p>
<p>Q. How much money did you lose?</p>
<p>Butler. I had in my pocket about three or four shillings, it was all gone, but I will not swear to above two; I had two pair of silver buttons in my pocket, and two pair in my sleeves, which were taken away; when I miss'd these things I knock'd with my heel for somebody to come up; and presently I saw a woman's hand push open the door, and disappear'd again, (I was fasten'd in before) then I went down and saw the woman prisoner; I said I had been robb'd of my silver buckles and other things, and insisted upon having my buckles again; after a great deal of talk she said, if I would give her 3 s. for the gin I had, I should have my buckles again. As I had no money, and had a relation hard by where I could have some, I desir'd somebody to go and call them.</p>
<p>Q. What time was it when you came down stairs ?</p>
<p>Butler. It was not night; I said if I had not my buckles again I would prosecute as far as the law would direct. There was a sailor in the house who said, if you take her up in order to prosecute her, I'll swear that you gave her the buckles; then I went to my cousin, and after that I got a warrant, and went to take up the woman; she said her name was
