I was called up, and went in about five minutes; there I saw the prisoner: he begged of me to have mercy on him; he owned he had taken tea out of a cannister, and put it into a paper bag; I suppose it might hold about eight pounds; he being frightened,

On Wednesday morning, the 20th of June, about 6 o'clock, I went into the shop; upon unlocking the door, I perceived the prisoner at the bar at a cannister, emptying tea into a paper bag. I walked about two yards into the shop before he saw me, I believe; he fell on his knees, and said, I am ruined, I am ruined; What shall I do? I said, I cannot tell what you must do; as I have been suspected in taking of tea, I am obliged to tell my masters of it, and it was in vain to speak to me. He got up from his knees, and went to the paper bag, and returned the tea out of it, into the cannister again, and went up stairs into his own room, and put on the remainder of his cloaths, having then on nothing but his breeches and shirt. In that time, I went and called Mr. Middleditch up, who immediately followed me, as soon as he could put his cloaths on. When I returned, the prisoner was coming along the shop to come to the door, in order to go out: Mr. Middleditch said, Young man, I have a suspicion of your taking the tea; he made no answer: then Mr. Middleditch said, Did you not take the other tea that was missing? he fell down on his knees, and confessed taking about twelve or fourteen pounds before, and had sent it into Suffolk, to one Smallwood, a smuggler, to sell for him: this he also confessed before my Lord Mayor.</p>

I went all about to see for the things, the next day in the afternoon, and to a pawnbroker's. I saw Robinson before me; I thought by the cock, he had my hat on.

<p>I was in Rosemary-lane; I buy and sell old stockings. I met the prosecutor, who said, he thought he knew me; he was very drunk, and gave me 8 d. for a pair of stockings, and I spent seven farthings. He called for eight or nine pints of beer for himself and me, and what people he pleased to give it to; he said, he lived as far as Aldgate, and could not go home that night; he begged of me to get him a lodging: I did my endeavour to bring him to one; he had a bundle under his arm: when we came to the house, he had no more than two-pence half-penny, and the people would not take that, so I came away and left him.</p>

<p>Q. Did you go in the day time to sell them?</p>
<p>Hussey. No, it was between ten and eleven o'clock at night; and sold them to him in the back part of the shop: there is a curtain divides the shop, and we sold them behind that.</p>
<p>Q. Had you ever sold him any before?</p>
<p>Hussey. Yes, I went two or three times before; he never made no scruple; he always bought them.</p>

<p>Q. How many handkerchiefs might they sell that time.</p>
<p>Fross. I believe there were about twelve; he gave 12 s. for them: I came down while the boys were selling them; he never minded my seeing him; there were two or three silk ones, some cotton, and some linen. I have seen these boys several times come on nights; he never refused any.</p>
<p>Q. How many times may you have seen these boys with handkerchiefs there?</p>
<p>Fross. I believe ten times; I never went to bed till between eleven and twelve.</p>
<p>On her cross examination, she said, Pullein was a staymaker; that his wife looked after the shop; that he understood the buying and selling every thing in the shop, but linen for shirts: that she was taken up when he was; and then, and not before, she made this discovery: that when she was examined, and asked, if she knew the evidence, she said, no; not being willing to bring Pullein into trouble: but at last she owned to the truth.</p>

When Fross was taken up, she said Mr. Pullein made it his business to buy handkerchiefs of these boys. (The handkerchiefs produced in court.)</p>
<p>Smith's Defence.</p>
<p>I was so much frighted I did not know what to say; when I was taken up, the justice said I should be an evidence. I shall be sixteen years of age, the 29th of May next.</p>

We took Lacey to the Farthing-pye house; there he took out the gold watch, and laid it down on the table, and covered it with his handkerchief: I said, hold, there is a watch, and took it out of his hand. Edwards was on my side of the coach; my brother put his

When we were at the round-house, Lacey desired us to go to Tavistock-court, and at a Baker's shop, there we should find Edwards, who kept a whore there, when we came there, the woman said, he had been there, and ran away without his hat; she bid us go to such a place, and we should hear of him: we went to Lacey, and he told us: we found him in bed, and brought him down; this was in Strutton-ground, Westminster. We searched him, and found nothing upon him, but these two penknives here produced: I saw marks of powder on the left side of his face; it was almost full of powder, and his eye was bloodshot; there was a scratch on his face as if done with a shot.</p>

<p>Bareav. Upon my oath, I am sure he is the man that presented the pistol into the coach.</p>

This was ten at night, or a little after, and a rainy night: it was not so dark, but I could see him very plain, as he came over the fields; and when he came up to the coach, I could see him plain enough: he d - d the coachman, and bid him stop, and fired into the coach, as soon as he got to the door: I fired after he did, and my brother fired in his face; I took particular notice of them both, and did not fire till they had fired.</p>

I was sent on this occasion to apprehend those people: on the 27th of June, I went out on horseback, as far as Marybone turnpike, and through Paddington. Before I got to Marybone turnpike, I heard a noise in Marybone fields; I said to the turnpike-ma n, is any thing the matter? he said, I am afraid there is, for I heard three or four pistols go off. Mr. Povey, the constable, came to me, and said, we have got one of the thieves in the coach, which was Lacey; we brought him to the round-house, and he informed us that Edwards kept a girl in Tavistock-court: we went there, and found he was gone; then Lacey told us he lived up two pair of stairs, at the Half-Moon, in Strutton's-ground; we went, and staid till the people got up; then we went into a two pair of stairs room backwards; he bounced out of bed, and we took him directly; one of his eyes was very much bloodshot, and swelled up, and powder was about his face; when he began to dress him, Mr. Wright clapped his hand on his left breeches pocket, and brought out two penknives, and a key; I gave him the key again: he dressed himself: we searched him, and tied his hands, and brought him to the round-house; one of the knives was a buck-horn one, and the other a plainish handle: when we brought him down stairs, he had never a hat on, and he borrowed a hat to come in. (The penknives produced and deposed to by the Prosecutor.</p>
<p>Lacey's Defence.</p>
<p>I was so unhappy to be persuaded to go out that night; we met that honourable gentleman in a coach; I stood by the coach, in order to bid them stand: Edwards went up to the coach, and demanded what they had; I went up to one side of the coach, and begged of the gentleman; he said he had given what he had, and the two ladies said they had given what they had. I said to Edwards, for God's sake don't make a noise, but come away: then I believe 'Squire Roper delivered two knives, and a key or two; and said, don't take the keys, they'll be of no service to you; I delivered one key, but could not see the other: then the coachman drove on directly, after I begged of Edwards to come away. The coachman drove on towards the town; then we crossed the fields, in order to go to town; that was my intention; I beg'd of Edwards to go to town. As there had been a great noise and disturbance, I was afraid there would be some pursuit after us; we stood by the farthing pye-house some time:
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176407280019"/> there was a coach went along; we thought it was going to town; we were going the same way: I knew no other than that it was an empty coach, I thought of going to town with it: I no sooner got up to the coach but I received a fire, which tore my hand to pieces. God knows I then thought it was a hard set upon us; I stood a moment or two: they ordered the coachman to drive on; I imagined we were attacked by officers, who were coming to seek for us, to bring us to justice; then I was taken directly and put into the coach, and taken down to the ale-house. I found I was left alone, to the unmerciful weapons they had about them. I could not defend myself in any shape. I voluntarily told where this unhappy young man was: I went to the round-house, a surgeon was sent for, I had two fingers taken off, and my hand drest that night; the next morning I was brought before Sir
