On the 4th I saw a boy going by with a pair of iron hinges in his hand, I asked him where he had them; he told me he would shew me the person he bought them of; he shewed me the prisoner, and as other buildings were broke open that night in Houndsditch, we thought proper to secure him. We examined him about the hinges, he acknowledged he had taken them.</p>
<p>Q. What were the words he made use of?</p>
<p>Woodbridge. He said he got in, and went up into the two pair of stairs room and took a chissel, and came down to the one pair of stairs room, and drawed the staple of a padlock and opened the door, and went in and took 10 pair of hinges from off a shelf, and his little brother and another boy were with him at the time. We asked him what he had done with them; he said he would produce some of them to me the next day, which he said he had sold to a person. We went with him to a baker in Gravel-lane; there the baker's brother produced to us three pair, which the prisoner acknowledged to be three of the same he took from the buildings. They have no particular marks on them, so as to know them from others, but they are of the same sort, and like them we missed; and though I do not chuse to swear to them, I believe them to be the same.</p>

I am a waiter at the Artichoke at Blackwall: I was going to fetch a horse from beyond Rumford; I overtook the prisoner between the 10 and 11 mile stones betwixt 10 and 11 o'clock. I did not take an account of the day of the month, it was on a Friday about a month ago; he was bargaining with a man that had a cart to carry his portmanteau, and after he had delivered it he overtook me, he was on horseback; he asked me if I had seen the Harwich fly, saying he should be glad to get there to night, for he had got his uncle's horse that kept the, Vine inn in Vine-street, Piccadilly, and if he could get in the fly he would send the horse back. We went on to the White-hart at Rumford, there we were told the fly went by at 7 in the morning; we went to another inn, and he asked for a machine; it wanted then 5 minutes of 11 o'clock, he could get no carriage. We agreed to ride on; he said if I would go with him to Brentwood he would take a post-chaise, and he would satisfy me if I would bring the horse to his uncle. We went there to the White-hart; he ordered a post-chaise, and called for a bottle of port and something to eat, and a barber to dress his hair; after he had paid for the chaise he turned out some pieces of silver coin, and said they were of no service to him, and said I was welcome to them. (Four pieces produced, one of them a Queen Elizabeth's shilling, and deposed to by Webb as his property.) He got into the chaise, and ordered to be drove to Chelmsford, and gave me half a guinea to bring the horse to Piccadilly. When I came there to the Vine, the landlord asked me where the man was that I brought him from; I said I believed he was at Harwich. He told me that man had robbed the Earl of Dartmouth, and that it was the Earl's horse. I then went with him and the horse to the Earl's house.</p>

<p>Gilder. No, he did not.</p>
<p>Mr. Gilder, sen. My son and daughter came home, and said they had picked up a watch, and how two men had collared him, and taken the case: my daughter said she knew the man. We described the prisoner to a neighbour; he said he'd be hanged if it was not Charles Fenley. He soon came by; the neighbour called and shewed me him. I stept to him, and said I wanted to speak to him: Was not you at Drury-lane playhouse last night? No, said he. Did not you take a watch-case out of a man's pocket? God forbid, said he, and denied it. I called my son down; he denied it to him. Then we got a constable; then he owned he did take it, and thought he had as much right to the watch as he, as he saw it on the ground, but could not get at it. The prisoner was committed, on suspicion for taking the case out of my son's pocket, and picking a gentleman's pocket of a gold watch. The watch was advertised by the prosecutor: then I and my son went and carried the watch; we found the case at Mr. Welch's, the Tuesday after: Fenley owned he had sent it by an attorney.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I was coming out of the playhouse: I kicked something with my foot; the gentleman stooped, I said, You have got something not your property: I believe, as he had his hand in his pocket, I did shake the it out of his hand: I knew it was not his own, because he said, Gentlemen, I have picked up a watch, and I shall have it forced from me.</p>

Then we went home again, and he and the prisoner sell to play; she beat his hat off, and said he should not have it till he had paid for the use of the room; they were on the bed together; she got off, and said there was a halfpenny sell, and she must go and get a candle: she went out; he then called the watchman in, and there they found a guinea on the floor.</p>

On Saturday the 29th of March, the prisoner was standing at our shew-glasses, about dusk: he came in, and desired me to take out a pair of silver shoe-buckles. While I was weighing them, he put a pair unperceived into his pocket. By the price he bid, I found he had no intention to buy. My partner came in, and then we missed a large pair of silver buckles, which we had weighed a little before for a customer. He ran one way, and I another: I light of the prisoner in Fenchurch-street. I took him by the collar, and said he must come back along with me. He began to struggle with me; I got assistance, and got him into my shop, and sent for a constable. Before the constable came, I desired to know what he had in his pocket: he pulled out our pair, with 2 other pairs not ours. The constable came and searched him, and found 4 silk handkerchiefs concealed in his waistcoat, all of a piece, and a pair of worsted stockings on the other side. He was taken to the Compter. I advertised the things; no body has claimed them. (The buckles produced, and deposed to.)</p>

<p>I brought the handkerchiefs from Holland. I went into this shop, and asked the price of a pair of buckles; he asked 5 s. an ounce for them. I pulled out a pair of buckles from my pocket, and

I wanted to go to the gentleman's house, to deliver them back, and I could not find it.</p>

<p>Q. Had you ever seen the bed and bolster there?</p>
<p>Pellett. I have: they were missing on the 22d of February; one of the men said the prisoner was there last the night before, and may be he might have it, as he was going to be married, and that he worked then at Stepney. I got a warrant, and went and found them in his apartment: I took him up, and he was committed to New Prison; he said he was going to be married, and he believed the d - l was in him, that he did take them.</p>
