<p>General St. Clair. It being the Birth-day of the Prince of Wales, I had been to pay my duty to his Royal Highness. Returning back, the place being crowded with chairs, &c. I was oblig'd to go out at the great gate. Turning to the right hand, I found, by the little shops, a prodigious crowd of people; I found myself thrust backwards and forwards, then I suspected I should have my pocket pick'd: I put down my hand, and found I had lost my handkerchief; then I felt for my watch, and found that was gone. I thought to myself, that whoever
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175002280004"/> had taken it, they could not have had an opportunity to be got at any distance from me. I immediately collar'd the man on my right hand, and another on my left, and said they had got my watch. I dragged them along to the centinel; the centinel took hold of one, and I dragg'd the other under the gateway. I call'd for the Serjeant of the guard ; while I was doing that, a servant of Sir

I at that time had him by the collar ; the other was a young man. I desired the Serjeant of the guard to see if he could find my Lord Carpenter; for I had met him going up, as I was coming down stairs. I met with

On the other person was found six or seven handkerchiefs, a pair of silver spurs, and a book of the records of England. Then they were both committed to the Gatehouse, Westminster. And, I do believe, on my honour and conscience, the prisoner at the bar to be the person which

<p>The prisoner desired Shorthouse might be put out of the court while he asked the General one question, which was granted; which was, what time of the day this was done ? to which the General reply'd, it was between one and two o'clock in the afternoon.</p>

I was going through the Prince of Wales's Court at this time, and I observ'd General St. Clair coming along, and a crowd of people about him. I observ'd two men in particular, one on his right hand, and the other on his left. He on the right press'd forward, leaning over the General's right shoulder ; after that, he seem'd to decline back. The General almost at the same time turn'd back, and said I have lost my watch; took hold of two men, and said either of you have got it; seeming in a consternation, as not knowing which had it. The man on his left hand seem'd to slip in between the General and the other on his right, saying, I Sir, what I Sir, have I got your watch, Sir? &c. He looked about seemingly as though he wanted to get away amongst the chairs and coaches. I said to the General, Sir, this man has got your watch, meaning him on the right. The General had quitted his hold; but immediately collar'd him again, and lugg'd him forward, in order to deliver him into the hands of the centinel. Then I saw that man put his hand into either his coat or waistcoat-pocket, and saw the chain hang out. Then I saw the watch drop from his pocket, and I pick'd it up, and gave it to the General. I cannot swear to him; for that was the only time I ever saw him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you say to the General, it was the old man that pick'd his pocket?</p>
<p>Shorthouse. No, my Lord ; but the Remark the General made then, was (in that Hurry) that it was the old man; the other being a young man, and not so big. To me now the prisoner seems younger than at that time, if he be the man.</p>
<p>Q. How was that man cloath'd ?</p>
<p>Shorthouse. He had on a blue coat, and a grizzle wigg.</p>

He penn'd me up against a shelf, with his arms on each side. I call'd out for the assistance of the watch; he then struck me on the head with his fist, took my hat and wigg, and ran away towards Rosemary-branch-alley. I ran after him, calling out, Watch! Stop Thief! &c. He, finding himself pursued, flung my hat and wigg down. He had carried them about twenty or thirty yards; the watchman took him presently, and carried him into the George ale-house; and in the morning, before Justice Ricards, he confess'd the fact, and also that he had committed another robbery that same night. The other person I saw with him, said nothing to me.</p>
<p>Being cross-examined, he said he did not know he ever saw the prisoner in his life before that time.

I begg'd he would give me leave to pull my gloves off; but before I could, he took my watch out, and put it into his pocket. Another man came up, with either a stick or a sword, which he wav'd over my head; one of them put his hand into my pocket, and took my money all out, which was about 12 or 13 s.

After I carried the paper to them, I saw all their heads together over the table, and saw a watch in the hands of North, which they suddenly snatch'd away upon my approach. After some time, I came into the room again, and Wilkinson had got it open, shewing it to another man in the room, saying, his uncle died and left it him, and that it cost him thirty guineas, but he would be glad to sell it for fifteen.

John said, here is a watch maker in company, (meaning myself) may-be he'll buy it, or help you to a chapman.

When he recover'd himself, he asked, if we had not seen two men, describing their dress, with a portmanteau, come down to ask for a boat, &c. saying, he had been robb'd by them, near the Fleet-market. A water-man, who had just landed his boat from White-fryars, said, I'll be hang'd if they are not the two men in that sculler, pointing to one upon the river. Then we put off two boats; two men took the two boys into one boat; the other boat had three men. We got the boys to sit in the bottom of the boat, for fear they should be seen by the prisoners. We push'd on shore at Moulston's-dock, while the other boat, with three men in it, kept in pursuit of them down the water. We ran, and just turning round by Horse-shoe-alley, the prisoners landed at Bank-end; who went round the corner talking together. I came up to them, and took hold of Roney with one hand, and the portmanteau, which was then on his shoulder, with the other. I asked him where he was going? he answer'd, d - n you, what is that to you ? I said, it was to me. Bastow took to his heels ; two of my consorts pursued him and took him in Deadman's-place.

I kept my eye upon White-friars causeway while I was at the Temple-stairs, there I saw a man in white coat come down, and another in a blue-grey coat after him, with a portmanteau on his shoulder.

I asked them where they would land? they said, row downwards; I said whereabouts? they said, Pull down. I said, on which side? they said, On the other side. When I got against Horseshoe-alley they bid me pull in there; I was got farther down towards Bank-end, so I landed them there. Bastow said, what must I give you? I said he paid me, and away they went. The other boat with the three watermen put in about three minutes after they were landed.</p>

I heard a Man cry out he was stabb'd; afterwards the gate was shut; there were about three pistols fired, or more; I was in much hurry, and can't remember the number; I saw Jones otherwise Harper, after he was taken out, as far as King-street, Westminster; we came all away together, making a great noise ; about Whitehall we dispersed, some one way, and some another.</p>
<p>Q. from Bowen. Did not you say before the justice that I was all that time in a sallivation ?</p>
<p>Brian. I might say he was in a sort of a walking fall.</p>
<p>Q. from Dowdle. How was I arm'd?</p>
<p>Brian. With a pistol and cutlass.</p>
<p>Q. from Smith, otherwise Norton. How was I armed?</p>
<p>Brian. With a hanger and an oaken stick; I knew him this three or four years; I belonged to a privateer, and we retook him, and brought him to England.</p>

Mr. Maycroft was there at that time. Mullings came in when we were at dinner, with his hand tied up, his thumb being hurt; he said it was done by quarrelling; he called Brian stagging dog, (the English of that is, he thought if I wanted to take any one, he would help me to him) Mr. Jones belonging to Bridewell, and I, took Brian; Jones took a pistol out of his pocket, who said, don't use me ill, I'll make myself an evidence, and before Mr. Fielding, he confessed this affair ; I had some conversation about this with Bowen, in the Press-yard in Newgate; he sent me two letters about two months ago; he said to me when I came there, if he was sure he should be sent to the place were Brian then was, he would come as an evidence about this rescue ; said I, why did not you put it into your first Information, then there would have been some credit in it; I knew Jones who was rescued, and have seen him along with Quin several times at the Fox.</p>
