I was starting beer in this store-cellar on the 18th of March, and found several of the butts were peg'd clandestinely, the beer was much of it gone. I started two barrels of beer into four butts, to fill them up again; the next day I went there again, and found the butts had been peg'd again afresh; I then look'd about, and found the broken place where the persons had got into the cellar.</p>
<p>Q. How much of the beer was missing?</p>
<p>Edwards. I can't tell; but I found out of two butts there were near 18 gallons missing in two days time; which were two of the butts that I had fill'd up.</p>
<p>Q. Who had the care of the cellar?</p>
<p>Edwards. Either Mr. Cumberledge or I always kept the key of it.</p>
<p>Q. Describe the place that was broke open.</p>
<p>Edwards. On the Saturday night the 19th of March, Mr. Cumberledge and I went into the cellar together, and found a board broke up in the floor over it, and laid down in its place, but not fasten'd. I got some nails, and nail'd it down.</p>

<p>Q. When?</p>
<p>Taylor. I believe it was in February when the board over the cellar was broke open; I don't know exactly the time.</p>
<p>Q. Who was at the breaking of it open?</p>
<p>Taylor. Rivers, Dobins, and myself.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175605280003"/>Q. How was it broke open?</p>
<p>Taylor. With a poker.</p>
<p>Q. Which of you broke it open?</p>
<p>Taylor. They both did; I lay on the bed at the time.</p>
<p>Q. Who went down into the cellar?</p>
<p>Taylor. I did that night, and fetch'd some beer up, and they pull'd me up again.</p>
<p>Q. How did you get at the beer?</p>
<p>Taylor. I tap'd one of the butts with a gimblet, and drew it off into a little brass kettle.</p>
<p>Q. Which did you deliver it to?</p>
<p>Taylor. I deliver'd it to

<p>Q. How much might the kettle hold?</p>
<p>Taylor. It held about a full-pot, or a little better.</p>
<p>Q. How many times might you fill it that night?</p>
<p>Taylor. I believe about eight or nine times.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go down after that?</p>
<p>Taylor. I did, in about two or three days after.</p>
<p>Q. Who was there at that time?</p>
<p>Taylor. Rivers and Dobins were then in the room.</p>
<p>Q. How much liquor might you draw at that time?</p>
<p>Taylor. Much about the same quantity as we did before.</p>
<p>Q. Was the board loose then?</p>
<p>Taylor. It was, we only laid it down.</p>
<p>Q. Did Rivers and Dobins go down into the cellar?</p>
<p>Taylor. No, they did not; I went down and drew the beer, and deliver'd it to them, and they emptied it into another thing.</p>
<p>Q. How many times might you go down?</p>
<p>Taylor. I believe I went down six or seven times, and drew near the same quantity cach time. We had an iron pot to put it into, that would hold about five quarts.</p>
<p>Q. How many times did you fill that in a night?</p>
<p>Taylor. We fill'd it twice in a night.</p>
<p>Q. Were the other three prisoners with you there at any time?</p>
<p>Taylor. They were all of them drinking with us there at different times; and they all saw the beer deliver'd up. Burch and Yates have been down in the cellar and drawn beer themselves.</p>
<p>Q. How often did they go down.</p>
<p>Taylor. Yates went down twice, and Burch might go down six or seven times; they both deliver'd up beer as I had done; and after we had done, we laid the board down again in the same manner as before.</p>
<p>Q. Were the five prisoners and you all there at one time?</p>
<p>Taylor. No, we never were.</p>
<p>Q. Were there any other of the prisoners down in the cellar?</p>
<p>Taylor. No. Sawyer once tried to go down, but could not; but there were two pots of beer drawn that night, and he drank part of it.</p>
<p>Q. How much do you think you drank in the whole?</p>
<p>Taylor. I think there might be a butt and a half drank and wasted in the whole.</p>
<p>Mr. Morgan. I was at justice Carkass's, when the evidence and all the prisoners (except Dobins ) were there, he was ill in the Infirmary at that time. They were charged with robbing the cellar of beer; they all own'd to the drinking part of the beer, and that they knew it was stolen. Taylor said then he thought there were two butts and a half drank, I said it was impossible it could be by six men in five weeks time; he said there was some wasted; after that he swore to a butt and a half.</p>

<p>Yates's defence. I was going down the street. Taylor call'd me and ask'd me if I would drink, he had got a full-pot of beer on a chest of drawers; so I went in and drank some, and we had three fullpots, but I knew not where it came from.</p>
<p>Rivers's defence. I went up to my quarters and received my money, Dobins was with me. We brought some bread and cheese with us, Taylor was drunk on the bed; he said he was glad we had got some bread and cheese, for he would help us to some beer, which he did.</p>
<p>Sawyer's defence. After Dobins was in the hospital he wanted me to go and lodge with him. I went with him, and drank part of a pot of beer. In two or three days after I went there, and drank part of a pot more with him.</p>
<p>Burch's defence. I went into Taylor's room and enquired for Dobins; then he ask'd me to lodge with him. I went with him, he had some beer in a cupboard; he said he had had a friend with him overnight, and it was dead in the pot.</p>
<p>Dobins's defence. I lodg'd with Taylor. Rivers and I went up to my quarters to receive my money. I found at my return Taylor drunk in bed; he said as you have got some bread and cheese, I'll take care you shall have some beer; he had beer by the bed-side, and we drank some of it.</p>

<p>Q. Are you sure you lost to the number of nine?</p>
<p>Ricciarelli. I am. I lost a pair of muslin ruffles, a gold ring set with 15 diamonds, and an amethyst ring. On missing the rings, I taxed the prisoner with taking them. He said he had them in his pocket, and took them out and delivered them to me; then charging him with taking my shirts, he owned he had taken and pawn'd them. We sent accordingly, and the pawnbroker produced them; (the rings produced in court, and deposed to.) I carried the prisoner before a magistrate, where he confessed the same.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give the prisoner directions to pawn the shirts?</p>
<p>Ricciarelli. No, I never order'd him to carry any thing to pawn; I once gave him two louisd'ors to change, which he did, and I had them back again.</p>
<p>Cross examination.</p>

<p>Lazarus Bartovalle. The prisoner brought me 2 double French louisd'ors by order of his master, and I lent him 2 guineas upon them. I have sometimes lent the prosecutor 10 guineas, sometimes 6, and often paid the coach for him. He often wanted

I got a warrant to search that box but it was gone then; upon which we open'd another little box of his (he was by at the time) there were 2 handkerchiefs, a towel, napkin, and other things (produced in court.) This napkin is part of a set. The towel has my mark on it U 12. There are 2 pocket handkerchiefs, which I put out of my

<p>Q. What part of the shop did they lie in?</p>
<p>Reeve. The lawn and 3 pair of stockings were at one of the windows; and the waistcoat piece, capuchine, and many stockings at the other window I lost all the stockings at that window, except one single stocking.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you miss them ?</p>
<p>Reeve. I missed them in about 3 minutes after. I had just come into the shop, shut the door, and gone backwards. I looked, and saw the shop door open. I went in, and missed the things. About an hour after I went to justice Fielding, and told him the affair, who had some suspicion of the prisoner Cane being at the head of it, and he desired me to seek for him, and bring him before him; directing me to enquire in Chick-Lane of people that bought stolen goods, to see if I could find mine. I went but found none of mine. I had a man with me who had some knowledge of Cane, so we went in search of him, and found him at the One-Tun in George Alley. Cane went out of the tap room into a little parlour, and made his escape over a wall. I went and told justice Fielding we had seen him, and how he got from us, who order'd his men to be diligent in searching for him; and they took him and Williams in a day or two afterwards. They were brought chither, and I was sent for; but they confessed nothing and they were set at liberty. Then Cole and Roberts were suspected to be the people that rob'd me. Some time after this a man belonging to New-Prison came into my shop, and ask'd me if I had been rob'd. I said yes, and told him in what manner. Then he told me he thought if Cole could be taken he would squeak. He was soon taken and discover'd the rest, and it here to give evidence. The 2 prisoners were
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="175605280012"/> taken, and Cane was carried before justice St. Lawrence, who was about to admit him an evidence against Cole. The justice pointed to me, and ask'd him if he knew me. He said yes, and there he acknowledg'd he was concern'd with the other prisoner and Cole in robbing me.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say of what ?</p>
<p>Reeve. I had mention'd the goods. He said of the goods I had lost. Justice Welch wrote an order for Cane to be brought before him, after Cole was taken. I went with the messenger to Bridewell. Cane there discover'd the taking our stockings, the lawn, and other things which I had lost. He said there were 10 pair of stockings and an odd one.</p>
<p>Q. What might these goods be worth ?</p>
<p>Reeve. They lay me in 5 l. and upwards.</p>
<p>Q. Did Williams confess any thing ?</p>
<p>Reeve. Williams confessed at the Bear in Bow-Street, that he was concern'd in the robbery with Cane and Cole. I ask'd him the particulars, and he acknowledg'd every thing.</p>
<p>Q. Did he give you an account of the manner in which it was done?</p>
<p>Reeve. No, he did not.</p>

Cane went in, and took out a capuchine, and a parcel of stockings; then Roberts and Williams went in, and took out some lawn and other things. I stood by the step of the door, and took them of them. There were 19 pair of stockings and an odd one, a capuchin, a piece of lawn, and a black piece of stuff to make a waistcoat. We carried them into George Alley, and look'd them over; then we went to Alexander the Jew, and sold them to him.</p>
<p>Q. Where does he live?</p>
<p>Cole. In Hounsditch.</p>
<p>Q. What did he give you for them ?</p>
<p>Cole. We sold the stockings for 18 pence per pair, the capuchine for 9 shillings, the piece of lawn for half a crown, and the waistcoat piece for half a crown. I was taken up, and the justice made me evidence, because I was the first that confessed. Cane was taken before justice St. Lawrence.</p>

<p>Thomas Tolley. On the 5th of February, about five in the evening, I had just been selling a pair of silk stockings, and not having time to tie the rest up, I put a string about them, and laid them at the end of the counter; this was on a Thursday. We did not miss them till the Saturday following, when I went round amongst the pawnbrokers, but could not find them. I went and told justice Fielding the case, who advised me to put it in the papers, with five guineas reward, which I did. When Cane and Williams were taken up, justice Fielding sent for me. I went, but they would not own any thing of taking the stockings. I proffer'd Cane, that if he was concern'd, and would own it, I would get him to be admitted an evidence if possible, and likewise give him two guineas. He would not own any thing of it, so they were discharged. After this, Cole was taken, who directly own'd the thing, and said Cane and Roberts were concerned with him in taking them, before justice Fielding and justice Welch. Then Cane and Williams were taken up again, and I went to Cane in Tothillfields bridewell, where he told me he put several pair into his breeches, and gave the rest to his companions, which were two dozen, and that he himself took them out of my shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say how many pair he put into his breeches ?</p>
<p>Tolley. No, he did not. He said he fill'd his breeches as full as he could. I missed 8 or 9 pair more than the 2 dozen.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say from what part of the counter he took them?</p>
<p>Tolley. He said he took them from the farther end of the counter.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say what was done with them?</p>
<p>Tolley. He said he sold them to

<p>Q. What shop do you keep ?</p>
<p>E. Wagstaff. I keep a haberdasher's shop. I missed the things mentioned in the indictment the minute they were gone out. Cane staid longer in the shop than the other did. Upon missing the goods I pursued, and Cane was taken; the other was out of fight, so got off.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see them take any thing?</p>
<p>E. Wagstaff. I saw the other person (not Cane) sambling at his breeches, and I mistrusted him. Then he pull'd out his own handkerchief, and I took no other notice of him. Cole the evidence was taken up that same night. I never found the handkerchiefs again.</p>

Upon seeing no country mark upon it, I mistrusted it was not honestly come by, and went to Smithfield to enquire if any body had lost a bullock, when Mr. Ireland said he had. Mr. Jefferson went with me, and said it was the bullock he had lost. The prisoner having said he would come soon to see it weigh'd, Mr. Jefferson staid, and in about a quarter of an hour after the prisoner came. He said, have you kill'd the bullock? I said, no. He said how long will it be first? I said stay a little, and took hold of him. Then we asked him how he came by that bullock, and he said another man hired him for 1 s. 6 d. to bring it to me to be kill'd.

We did not see any houses of ill same open till we came to the last house of that sort; I made a stop at the door, and thought I heard somebody coming from the back room to the door, and the bolt and lock drawn back. A woman open'd the door and look'd out. I put in my staff, and she scream'd out. I saw a couple of lads in the room, who got up and ran to the left hand, open'd a door, and went in there. I went after them; where I found a necessary house, and a hole that a man might get into the vault. I put my staff down, then look'd, and found the 2 prisoners. I order'd them out, and they came up. I saw something look red, and got it up. They said, it did not belong to them. Then I ask'd the people of the house if it was theirs. They said, no. I secured them in the watch house, and carried the parcel with me. The next morning came justice Fielding's men, who had got a warrant for 6 men. They desir'd me to let them see the 2 lads we had got. One of them said, these are not the men we want, but they are 2 notorious thieves; let's take out the little one (which was Shilock) and examine him. We did so, and he would not confess for a long time. He said, if you don't confess and impeach Watts, he will impeach you, for he transported his wife, and had like to have done the same by his mother a little time ago. Then the prisoner said he stole the parcel, which were handkerchiefs, in Wapping, at Execution-Dock, and that there was another parcel in the place where he was taken, which the gentlemen did not see. Then I took him before justice Pell, and told his worship what the lad had inform'd me of. The justice desir'd us to go back, and see for the other parcel. We went, and Shilock with us. He went down into the place, and brought a parcel of handkerchiefs, 10 of them blue and white. We went to the justice's with them; then Shilock confessed he had been in company with the prisoner Watts about a month, and that they had committed several robberies, and had rob'd Mrs. Griffith's shop at Execution-Dock of 14 handkerchiefs. The justice desir'd we would take him with us, to shew us the shop. When we came there Mrs. Griffith was crying. We ask'd her what she had lost; she said some handkerchiefs. Shilock confessed also at the justice's that they rob'd Mrs. Jones. We took him there by his direction, and ask'd her if she had been rob'd. Her daughter told us they had lost a great many handkerchiefs some time ago. I ask'd if they had lost any within 8 or 10 days. She said no, at first. Then Mrs. Jones was call'd down, who said she had lost some handkerchiefs out of the window, or else they were sold. The boy said they stole a piece of 8 handkerchiefs. Then the daughter said she missed them, but her mother being ill she did not tell her of them, for fear of disturbing her. Then the boy shew'd us how he drew back the window shutter, putting in a hooked stick at a hole in the window. Then we took the boy to the justice again. Mrs. Jones went with us; there was also Mrs. Griffith. Then both the prisoners confessed the 2 robberies. The confession was taken in writing, and sign'd by the 2 prisoners and the justice. It was read in court, to the following purport:</p>

She came in, and the prisoner said he thought that the boy came honestly by them. She went and took the things out of a chest; he was in the room at the time she delivered them to me. I think he said he gave half a crown for the dessart spoons, and 8 d. and 6 d. a piece for the others.</p>
<p>Q. What are they worth each?</p>
<p>Brown. The dessart spoons are worth about 6 s. each, and the others about 18 d. each.</p>
<p>Q. Did he make a demand of any money?</p>
<p>Brown. No, he did not. The boy was there at the time. He said the first thing he brought there was in order to buy a pair of buckles. The prisoner is a shoe-maker, or cobler; his wife keeps a cutler's shop, and sells buckles and sticks. The boy and he were examin'd before the justice, where the boy confessed the stealing and he the buying of the things.</p>

<p>Mrs. Colier. On the 9th of February the prisoner brought this silver cream pot (producing one) to my house, to pawn. I said if she would bring me another piece of plate with the same arms, if it was but a tea-spoon, she should have it again; or else I should stop it; that she said she could easily do. Then she said, don't you know me? I said, I have seen you before, but you will give me leave to stop it. It being too late in the evening, when it came into my hand, to put it into the Daily-Advertiser; I said to her, I shall put you to two shillings expence; she said she did not care if it was six. She said, do you know Mr. Jennings the sadler? I said, yes, he is a very honest man, and if he comes and says it is your's, you shall have it again. Two days after my lady Milbank advertised it. I sent word, and my lady's servant came and brought a tea pot with the same arms on it; and I deliver'd it to him.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you find the prisoner again?</p>
<p>M. Colier. She was taken up for another offence.</p>
