On the 19th of June last, in the evening, I lost a silver pint mug; and on the 22d, pretty late in the evening, I lost a two quart silver tankard, with a 3 l. 12 s. piece of gold on the top of it. On the 23 d I sent notice
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175107030003"/> to Goldsmith's-hall, and likewise advertised it the 25th, by which means I came to find it out. The prisoner, and the 3 l. 12 s. piece were stop'd at one Mr. Holland's, near Bishops-gate, who sent for me. I accused the prisoner of the fact, and she immediately confess'd, that she and her brother had stolen the things. I desired her to go and show me where the tankard and mug were. She took me to a house in Dunning's alley, and shew'd me the tankard knock'd and cut to pieces; the piece of gold was cut out with a knife, and damaged in cutting out; then she went with me to Mr. Burry's, a pawn-broker, where she had pawn'd the mug for two guineas. The goods were produced in court and deposed to.</p>

The prisoner brought the silver pint mug to me on the 20th of June, about eleven o'clock in the forenoon, saying, her mistress had lived in Barbacan, at the sign, of the Cattle, (there was a Castle engraved on the mug) and that she wanted money, &c. I told her, I chose to carry the money to her mistress. She said, her mistress lived in great credit, and the people would know me, which would not be so well. I would not lend her any money upon it. After that she came again with a woman, who, she said, was an intimate acquaintance of her mistress, which woman I had known about a year and a half, who testified it was her mistress's, so I lent her two guineas upon it.</p>
<p>Gyles Smyth went with the prosecutor to find the things, and confirm'd his testimony.</p>
<p>The prisoner in her defence said, It was not she, but her brother that took the things.</p>

The woman gave me the signal, the boy got up and crept under my arm to get away, but I took hold on him, and took him over to the sign of the Blew Anchor, where the prisoner, Hughs, was to be brought: there my journyman demanded of him, what he had done with the goods. Young said, he would let us know where every thing was, and that the tea-chest was then at his washerwoman's, and the woman that is got away, who lodged at that house, had bought it of him for half a pint of All-sorts. The woman who bought it went with me there, and took it out of a cupboard under the stairs, it had one of my child's petticoats lap'd round it. I brought the washerwoman's husband with me to the Blue Anchor, he is a watchman, then I had four of them. While I was in the house

On the 20th of June the prisoner came into my shop to look at some muslin, my servant shew'd her some, and ask'd her 4 s. 6 d. per yard, but she wanted to see some more. I was in the middle of the shop and had a suspicion of her, and watched her very narrowly. She call'd for a stool, saying, she was lame. In looking over the muslin she shuffled up her petticoats and conveyed a piece under them. She seem'd presently after to be in a great deal of confusion, then put her hand to her pocket and shuffled the piece down again, so got off the stool and took it up and laid it on the counter again. She said, she wanted enough for four neckcloths. My servant cut off six yards, and said, it came to 24 s. She laid down a shilling, and said, she would call by and by, and went away. I fetch'd her back and search'd her, but found nothing upon her. She had 24 s. in her pocket, which she said she would give me rather than go before my Lord-mayor.</p>

<p>Crowder. I live with Mr. Hancock. This day fortnight the prisoner came to our window and look'd in, and ask'd my mistress, if she would be so good as to change him a 36 s. piece. My mistress said, will a guinea and a half do and the rest in silver? He said, it would not so well, because he wanted to pay his coach hire. She counted the money down. He said, be to good as to let the boy go along with me, and I will give him the 36 s. piece. My mistress said, go along with the gentleman; so he put the money in my hand and I went with him. At the turning of the corner he ask'd me for the money, but I did not give it him readily. He said, D - n you, you dog, give me the money. He took it as quick as he could out of my hand, and bid me stay there and not stir away.</p>
<p>Q. Was you willing he should have the money?</p>
<p>Crowder. I refused it him, till he took it. Presently my master came to me, the prisoner ran as fast as he could up the street. My master ask'd me, whether that was the man.

Thirty six shillings, said I. Here it is, said he, and gave it me. Said I, I will know who you are, and what you are. Said he, do you know what you have done? you have compounded a felony. I got assistance and took him into an alehouse. He said, you don't know who I am, if you did you would not play these tricks upon me. He offered me five hundred pound bail. There was a man came to me in a ruffled shirt, but his cloaths were very ragged, who said, he would produce me five hundred pound bail. Said I, where do you live? He did not choose to tell me. Said I, it is true you have a ruffled shirt, but you have no breeches. All I could get of him was, he was a gentleman.</p>

The first time I saw the prisoner was the 11th of May, when she came to me at Edmonton as I sat at the door, ask'd me if I wanted any matches, and begg'd some small beer. I got up and drew her some. When she had drank it, she ask'd me if I would have my fortune told? (the prisoner went under the character of a Gypsy.) She told me it would be a very lucky house to me, and told me also that there was money, upwards of 70 l. buried in the cellars. She named twenty-five large pieces of gold, some large pieces of silver, three gold rings, silver spoons, and other things, which were buried by an old man and woman, and that they were buried there for me, and that I was the person who was to have them. She then went away, saying she would be with me again on Tuesday. Accordingly she came when I was in the fore room, but only asked for a little small beer, and went away, having no opportunity of speaking to me then. She came again the next day, when she told me about the money, what quantity there was, and that I must get a quantity of silver or gold, four or five pounds value, and put into my right side pocket till such time this money was brought.</p>
<p>Q. Where were you when you had this Talk?</p>
<p>S. Biginton. We were in the kitchen: she was to come again the next morning, which she did, a few minutes after six. I let her in again, and brought the plate, eight large silver table spoons, two tea spoons, a pair of silver salts, and a silver pepper box, and put them on the table before her: she took the spoons in her hand, and wrap'd them in a cloth which she brought; I put in one salt and the pepper box, and then she roll'd the cloths up round, and ordered me to go and put some salt in the fire. When I came again the cloths were rolled again, and I put the other salt in. Then she ordered me to get a piece of packthread, with which she tied it up at the end where the spoons and salts were, as I thought. After that she told me I must get a parcel of linen of all sorts to put this into, and that they were better than to put it in my pocket. Accordingly I went and got some linen, and she put it in amongst it, tied them up, and put the parcel into the cellar. I went with her, and she told me I must not go near it till she came again, which would be in about two hours. She went away about seven o'clock, but not returning, I let the things lie till about eleven, at which time they would be wanted for dinner; but when I untied the parcel to take out the plate, there was nothing in the cloth but a wooden spoon, a flint, a steel, and some powder, I believe it was gunpowder; it was tied up as it was she left it. Upon this I made a discovery, and my mistress wrote a letter, and sent it away.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see the prisoner again after this?</p>

I went up to them as fast as I could, saying, consider, gentlemen, what you are go ing about is a thing of a very dangerous consequence, and you are both; I suppose, in liquor, and when you are sober you will be sorry for it. Capt. Sowle said he'd take my advice, and so put up his sword. Then the deceased whispered to him, but what they said to each other I cannot tell. Capt. Sowle said to him, as you persist upon it, I'll meet you in Hide-park at four o'clock. The other said, there is no time like the time present, and insisted upon satisfaction then, Capt. Sowle bid him a good morrow, and walk'd away from him, but the other followed him with his sword drawn in his hand, saying, damn your soul, several times, you are a coward like the Core you belong to. They walk'd about sixty or seventy yards from me, and he seem'd to give aggravating language. Then Capt. Sowle drew his sword, and they went to it; I ran up to them as fast as I could, and call'd to them for God Almighty's sake to give over. I saw the captain receive a wound in his left arm.</p>
<p>Q. Why did not you endeavour to prevent this before?</p>
<p>Malcomb. I had not my sword or stick with me, the evidence is a soldier. I went in between them, and Capt. Sowle withdrew, I catch'd at their swords, and twisted Paschal's out of his hand, and then going to Capt. Sowle, he let me have his without any resistance. Paschal ask'd me for his sword again, and said, are you going to rob me? I said, no, I had a spirit above that, and that I had a great mind to break both the swords, for I could stand by so doing. He ask'd me for it a second time, and I told him, I took him to be a gentleman of honour, and if he would promise to use it no more at that time I would give it him, which he did, and I put it into his scabbard myself, saying, if he had been kill'd it was his own seeking, because he insisted to fight the gentleman. He said, let the consequence be what it will, I heartily forgive the gentleman. There were then four or five people about them. Capt Sowle ask'd me to help do up his arm, and if I had a room thereabouts. I carried him to my room, and call'd up my wife, who wash'd him, and tied up his arm. Then he refused me to go and enquire for the deceased, when I did, but he was gone. At that time I did not think he was hurt at all, seeing no blood.</p>

<p>Q. What size man was Paschal?</p>
<p>Malcomb. He was a tall, thin gentleman, taller than the prisoner, and seemed a stronger man.</p>

While they were there, I went up stairs to put on my coat. I just ask'd Mr. Paschal whether he would have his slippers, and thinking he was going to bed, I did not ask him any farther questions, nor did he say any thing to me. When I came down they were both ready to go out. I heard no words of difference pass, but out they went together. I knew nothing farther of it till Mr. Paschal came back, about half an hour after eight. When he came in I was called down into the fore parlour, where I found him sitting in a chair: he pull'd up the flap of his waistcoat, and said he had a little scratch ; it was in the lower part of the right side of his belly. He said he was in good spirits, and behaved the gentleman. He thought he was not at all hurt, and looked upon it as a thing of no consequence. His shirt was no more bloody than what it might have been by the scratch of a pin, (tho' it bled inwardly we found afterwards.) I prevailed upon him to go up to bed, and desired he would permit me to send for a surgeon, but he would not; notwithstanding that I sent for one Mr. Pinkstone, but when he came, the deceased would not permit him to do any thing to the wound, so he went away again. About one or two o'clock he began to be faint, when he admitted him to be sent for again, but then I was not at home, so can say nothing to it. This was on Monday morning, and he died on the Wednesday following ; There were several other gentlemen that attended him during that time.</p>

<p>Q. Was the deceased a man fond of drinking to excess?</p>
<p>Joyant. No, sir, he was not.</p>
<p>Q. How was he for temper when in his liquor ?</p>

<p>Q. Was he sober?</p>
<p>Roper. He was fuddled. The company staid till near four o'clock in the morning, and left Paschal and the captain by themselves. They staid near an hour, and were hiding their money under hand. The door stood a-jar, and I was at it, but hearing them get up to go away I went in, and heard Mr. Paschal say to the captain, I'll go where you dare not go. They went down stairs together, and so out of doors. Capt. Sowle offered to have a chair which was at the door, but Paschal took him by the arm, and they went up the street together. I look'd after them, thinking there was something amiss. I observ'd Capt. Sowle had a sword, the other had not.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know Capt. Campbell?</p>
<p>Joyant. Yes, sir, he was the last person that went out of the room, and left them together.</p>
<p>Fleming Pinkstone. I attended the deceased on this unhappy occasion. I went to him on Monday about nine in the morning, the gentleman of the house shewed me his bed, and I opened the curtains and said, sir, how do you do? He gave me out his arm, and said, do I want to be let blood? Said I, if you have no complaint, I don't think this pulse will admit of the loss of blood, but, continued I, I hear you have other complaints, if you have, pray shew me. No, said he, if I don't want bleeding I am your humble servant, good morning to you. I went into the next room, and said, what shall I do in this case? The gentlewoman desired me to come again when a friend of his would be there. So I went away, and was sent for again between twelve and one. Then the deceased laid open the bed, and turning up his shirt, I saw a small puncture in the lower part of his belly, on the right side, upon which I took my probe, and found it passed into the cavity quite through. He then complained of a violent pain on the point of his left shoulder, and I found a great anxiety about him. I went into the next room and told the gentlewoman of the house I was afraid it was a thing of great consequence, and desired to have a consultation ; then I went and desired the deceased would name a person; upon which he ask'd me what I thought of Mr. Andrews. I answered I thought very well of him, and should be glad to have him there. Accordingly he was sent for, and came in about 15 or 20 minutes. While he was sent for I sat on the bed-side, and ask'd him how this came; but he seemed to decline that, and turning about said, I don't know who gave it me, but I am sure he is a gentleman. When Mr. Andrews came we consulted what was proper, and dress'd him in the usual manner. Mr. Andrews going out of town, and I finding him worse, called in Mr. Hawkins, but he died on Wednesday in the evening; after which I open'd him, and found the wound had passed through the cavity into the abdomen, and opened the left iliac vein, the consequence of which was a great extravass of blood. I am certain that wound was the occasion of his death.</p>
<p>Cross examined.</p>
<p>Q. Did the deceased say any thing else?</p>
<p>Pinkstone. I don't recollect he said any thing else.</p>
<p>Q. Did he lay the blame on any body?</p>
<p>Pinkstone. If I understood him by his behaviour he seem'd to be extremely chagreen'd with himself, especially when I came first in the morning he seem'd very uneasy, and continued so thro' the whole, being very fullen.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>My lord, the deceased was almost a stranger to me, for I never had seen him but once before. It was by accident I went into that company. I have since heard Mr. Paschal was very unhappy in his liquor, and a very quarrelsome man. The treatment he gave me was very exasperating, following me with a drawn sword, which obliged me to draw in my own defence. I am very sorry for the event. I have a great number of gentlemen here to prove I am no quarrelsome man, or any thing of that sort. I received the first wound on my shoulder which threw me backwards, and I must have been on my back, had it not been for some rails; the second would have been in my body, had I not taken it into my arm; and the third was the unhappy one which I am exceeding sorry for.</p>

<p>Q. Was this done indecently to the young woman, or using her roughly?</p>
<p>Steping. It was done in such a manner that I really thought he was acquainted with her, it was nothing indecent.</p>

I refused him, he pull'd me, and I gave a stagger, which might make the other witness believe I was consenting. Mr. Westmore desir'd he would let me alone, saying I belong'd to him.

I apprehend that fracture was the cause of his death.</p>
<p>To his Character.</p>
<p>Mr. Howard. I have known the prisoner about four years, he has been a kind of a servant to me, and used to shave me and do my wigs. I always took him for a person of a very peaceable disposition, very unlike to run into any quarrel. He is a person of sobriety. I never saw him in liquor in my life; an honest person, I would have trusted him with any some of money, and a good natur'd fellow. I don't think he would, knowingly, kill any man in the world, under any provocation.</p>
<p>Mr. Dryle. He has attended me in the manner he has Mr. Howard. I think him a man very unlikely to commit any crime of this sort, I don't think he would begin a quarrel. I have heard the trial, and don't think, upon these circumstances, he intended to kill the deceas'd.</p>

I was inform'd the prisoner was taken last Thursday was se'nnight, and when he was before the Justice I went there and knew him again; two of them had sailors trowsers on, the other a red waistcoat; the prisoner said before the Justice, they took from me my buckles, breeches, and shoes, and that he saw but threepence halfpenny in money, but he did not say what was become of them.</p>

As I was coming along Field lane, about half an hour after 11 o'clock at night, the prisoner and others were blasting their eyes; said I, you are a parcel of thieves, what do you do here at this time of the night? They gave me some saucy answer, so I laid hold on the prisoner and deliver'd him to the constable. Said the prisoner, I wish you had taken him that was along with me, you had then done the trick; and added, there is but one thing can hurt me; that was, that he and two or three more robb'd two people in two different haycocks, one of the men had a woman along with him. I took him to Bridewell, the prosecutor came and challeng'd him with the breeches, and 8 s. 6 d. Said the
