On the Sunday morning about eight o'clock, I had occasion to go down into the cellar; I observed the cover of a box full of books was loose; then I went to see my hats, and found five were gone: I went to look at the street-door, and found the staples were drawn, and the door open. The next morning my next door neighbour's house was broke open and robbed, upon which Bourk was taken up; then the evidence Ashbridge was apprehended, said he had no concern in my neighbour's but he had in breaking mine; upon which to the prisoner, who was in custody, and said, I understand you have my hats, let me know where they are: he said he knew nothing of them; I offered him half a guinea, in case I could have them again. That evening he sent me a letter, mentioning, if I would come to him, he would let me know something about them; I went to him; he said, do you remember what you said last night; I said I would give him the half guinea, in case I had my hats, and offered him a shilling of it; he said, that will not do; I said, he should have the rest of the money when I had the things; he said it would do, and took the shilling: then he took me on one side, and told me, one of my hats was sold to a baker in Golden-lane for 4 s. 6 d. which was a hat that I made for a clergyman, and worth above 15 s. he told me, the other four were sold to a man named Cantrell, that buys stolen handkerchiefs, in Field-lane, for half a guinea; two were worth 15 s. each, and the other two 12 s. each. Then I applied to my Lord-Mayor for a search-warrant, to search his house; but before I got there, he was got off, and not to be found since; I went to the baker, and he readily delivered that hat up: (produced and deposed to, by a brand mark on the inside the crown.)</p>

<p>Burch. My servant was serving him, I was backwards; when I came forwards, I saw the prisoner laying something by, which I imagined he had bought; he addressed me, and asked me if I was the master of the shop, and said he dealt in linen, and came to England once a year, and always carried some abroad with him; he said he was recommended to me by a hosier, as I understood, where he had bought some stockings; I desired he would tell me who it was recommended him, because I should be glad to know my friends; he looked over his pocket-book, but said he had not the direction, so he put his book up: he bought linen; the bill came to, I think, 24 l. 4 s. he bought his goods very hard, by which I took him to be in the business; he insisted I should abate him the 4 s. and said, when he came to London again, next February, he would call upon me again. My servant made out the bill; I gave him change for a 30 l. bank-note; 6 l. I gave him in change; the prosecutor called upon me, I referred him to my banker, and I believe he got the date of the note from him.</p>
<p>Q. In what name did the prisoner come to you?</p>
<p>Burch. He did not come in the name of Gasper French; he came, as I understood, in the name he wrote it, Cewper: this was to let me know who he was, and where he lived, and that he would be a customer again.</p>

I went on the Saturday to see if I could detect the person that did it, at Mr. Hore's desire: I got into a proper place; after I had taken the loaf in my hand, and placed it the same as before, Mr. Hore had sent the prisoner for some yeast while I secreted myself; when he came in, he came to the place where the loaf was; I was close to it; he took the loaf and went up stairs, and set out to go home. Mr. Hore asked me if he had got the loaf; I said, yes; he called him, and found the loaf in his pocket. I believe the prisoner split it in the cellar; it was pulled in two pieces.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>On Saturday nights we take no supper, we commonly take a piece of bread in our pockets; I took a piece of a twopenny loaf in my pocket, and was going to supper with it.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. Do you allow your men to take bread out in in this manner on Saturday nights?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. There is no such thing allowed at my house.</p>
<p>For the prisoner.</p>
<p>Charles Green. I have known the prisoner three years; he always had a very good character. I have been a baker: it is always allowed to take a piece of bread, and go out in an afternoon to get a pot of beer to enjoy themselves.</p>
<p>Q. What, so much as a twopenny loaf?</p>
<p>Green. No, not so much as that.</p>
<p>Q. Is it a perquisite in your trade that a journeyman shall take a whole twopenny loaf, and split it in halves, and go off with it?</p>
<p>Green. The prisoner now has 40 l. a year coming in.</p>
<p>Q. What countryman are you?</p>
<p>Green. I am a Scotchman, so is he.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you been out of the country?</p>
<p>Green. Not nine years.</p>

<p>Anderson. I am; and was he discharged, I would take him immediately to my service.</p>
<p>Q. Do you allow your servants to take bread at a twopenny loaf at a time, in the manner here charged on the prisoner?</p>
<p>Anderson. I never knew it to be found fault with in my life, to take what they please of bread, on a Saturday night when they don't sup at home; they always may go to the cupboard and take cheese, cold meat, and what they please. I never was denied it by no master when I was a journeyman.</p>
<p>Q. What, was your practice to take twopenny loaves?</p>
<p>Anderson. Sometimes one half of a twopenny loaf.</p>
<p>Q. What, and secrete it, and take it out privately?</p>
<p>Anderson. I used to take it before my master's face; that I never deny my servants now.</p>

<p>Q. to prosecutor. What wages did you give the prisoner?</p>

<p>Q. Did you know the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Bullock. I did; he commonly walked Cranbourn-alley and about Leicester-fields on nights; there are about thirteen or fourteen of them that belong to that company; they resort at the King's-arms in Prince's-street; there is another company which have a pretty many bull-dogs belonging to them, but these have none. The prisonerca me up to the prosecutor, and said, money; he wanted money, and d - d his eyes, and said money he would have. Then I came up directly to them; the prosecutor charged me with the prisoner; after that, the prisoner charged me with them. I said to them, do you take care of the prisoner, and I will be answerable for you, if you assist me, for I knew we should be attacked. The prisoner went very quietly with me till his companions came up; they said to him, d - n you, will you go quietly with that man? then he began striking me, and the man that had hold of him; they got hold of my staff, and kicked out my light; we called out, and there were three or four watchman coming from Newport-market; they ran off, and left the prisoner in our custody.</p>
<p>Cross examination.</p>
<p>Q. How near were they when they first came up to the watch-house?</p>
<p>Bullock. They were within three or four yards of it.</p>
<p>Q. Were they walking as people walk in common?</p>
<p>Bullock. No, they were coming together in a skulking manner, and I knew them to be skulkers.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner drunk or sober?</p>
<p>Bullock. To tell the truth, I do not think he was right sober; he had been drinking at the King's-arms with one Hill.</p>
<p>Q. Have you seen one man rob another, and not make use of his hands?</p>
<p>Bullock. I have seen that done in Cranbourn-alley before now: they first br quarrels, two of them will go to fighting, in the mean time they go to picking of pockets; that I often see.</p>
<p>Q. You talk of another gang, what gang is that?</p>
<p>Bullock. It is well known in the parish, there is a gang of about 50; that gang has been complained of to Justice Welch, and at the Rotation-office; there has been warra nts out, and some of them have been taken; they have bull dogs with them.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I had been drinking at a public-house; I got much in liquor, and met them two gentlemen in Cranbourn-alley; we had a few words together; I had no intention upon them; I had left my company at the public-house, and was going home; these two men charged me, and I charged them, and we went to the watch-house together.</p>

<p>Thomas Barnet. I live at Stepney; I make children's pumps; I had two dozen and four pair made for Mr. Gibson, a linen-draper and haberdasher at Stratford; Mr. Gibson took one dozen and four last Friday was se'nnight; coming back, I had a dozen pair tied up together in a handkerchief, six pair of what we call Morocco, and six pair of black calf-skin; I being a little tired, seeing a butcher's cart, begged leave of the butcher's man to let me ride; he gave me leave; there was the prisoner Spelter in the cart; I asked him where he came from, and where he was going; he said, he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176607020017"/> came from Plaistow, and he was going to see his sister, who was a servant to a gentleman a little on the other side the turnpike, and he must get out there; he jumped out, and I did not miss him at first; in a little time I missed my handkerchief with the pumps in it, and the boy was then gone quite out of sight. On the Saturday Davis was detected in offering two of the pairs to sale; (produced in court and deposed to.) A neighbour of mine told me, a boy had been before the bench of Justices, on account of some children's pumps. I went there, and was asked by the clerk, if I had lost any; I said I had, and gave him an account of them: the two pair were produced, and I said they were mine. I was desired to go to the boy in Bridewell; I went, and saw he was not the boy that stole them: the boy was taken before a magistrate again, and there he made a true discovery of the prisoner Spelter, and another; that he said Spelter was on the copse of the cart at the time; and that they did not know what was in the handkerchief, till they opened it in the field; and that he himself was asleep in the field, and they awaked him, and showed him the pumps; he said there were twelve pair, six red and six black: he said, they d - d me for taking care of a crown paper of halfpence, which they designed to have got from me. I remember I pulled out a crown paper of halfpence while I was in the cart, but I put them safe in my pocket again.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell whether the man on the copse of the cart, or the boy Spelter, took the pumps?</p>
<p>Barnet. They lay so, that the man on the copse could not reach them; Spelter must be the person that took them; they lay just by him; that man jumped off the cart, and went away after Spelter was gone. When Spelter was taken up, he owned he took them.</p>

I was in Rag-fair on Saturday; saw Davis and one Gibson; Gibson is the master of this gang of boys; I heard Gibson say to Spelter, d - n your eyes, why do not you look sharp? then I went to Gibson, and said, how could you encourage these boys to go about thieving? I asked Davis what he did there; he said, what was that to me: I said, pray what have you in your pocket? there I found two pair of red Morocco pumps; I took them out, and carried him and the pumps before the bench of Justices, and delivered the pumps to an officer named Chapman.</p>

The prosecutor went out with some goods to Stratford, and afterwards told me he had lost such a quantity of pumps; I went with him to Bridewell to see the boy Davis; he was at play, he came to me as soon as I called him; I asked him upon what account he was in there; he said, upon the account of some pumps, but he did not steal them. I said, if you tell me the truth, I will endeavour to get you cleared. He told me, he had the pumps of Spelter and Gibson, and mentioned where Spelter lived.</p>
<p>Spelter's defence.</p>
<p>I was going to take a walk with Gibson; a butcher was going with a cart; they made to a gentleman's house; he asked Gibson to go and ride, Gibson asked me to go; the man said, we might be back in a couple of hours; we went to Plaistow with the cart. When we were in the cart, Gibson pointed to me, and bid me go more backwards, and I came more forwards. I got down, and was going home; Gibson got down, and came after me; he said he had something in the handkerchief, he could not tell what. We went into the fields, and looked into the handkerchief, and found they were shoes; I do not know where Gibson is, he is older than me; he is about twenty years of age, I am going on thirteen.</p>
<p>Davis's defence.</p>
<p>I went with them to Rag-fair, to sell some shoes; they said they found them in Whitechapel-road; they asked me to put some of them in my pocket; I put in two pair; I am going on fifteen years of age.</p>

She asked me to go along with her, and have a pint of beer; so I went with her to the house where I first saw her, and the people of the house knew that was the woman that took me out of that house. Then I got a watchman, and gave him charge of her; she was brought before the Justice; she said there, she did not sell the cloaths, but the people where I had been insisted upon either money or goods for the use of the room: she said she went with Bourn when my cloaths were sold, and got half a crown of the money; that the coat was sold to Mr. Fitzgerald, and the hat and breeches to Mrs. Clark, where I found them.</p>

<p>John Hall. I am one of the headboroughs of St. John's, Wapping, there are seven of us, so one attends every night; on Friday the 16th of May, about one in the morning, Campbell came to me, and gave me charge of Richardson; he said he had lost his coat, hat, and breeches, and had spent what money he had at the Fountain, and she took him down to another house, and he went to bed, but did not know whether he was stripped or not; and when he awaked, the girl and his cloaths, were gone. I asked Richardson if that was true; she said it was, but she did not take the cloaths; but Mrs. Bourn took them, as she found he had no money; that she went and sold the things, and gave her half a crown of the money, and she spent a shilling out of it; I took charge of her, and of the prosecutor also, as he was a stranger to me; I carried them before Justice Hodgson; the Justice asked what sort of a house Bourn kept; she answered, it was a bawdy-house, which she swore to, and that she, that day, gave her 18 d. for the use of the bed. The Justice granted a warrant to apprehend Bourn; we went and found her at the Fountain in the Minories; they both accused each other before the Justice; then I was sent to Mrs. Clark, Mr. Fitzgerald, and Mr. Popard, who gave the same account they have here. The prisoners were committed to New Prison.</p>
<p>Q. from Richardson to prosecutor. Did I take your cloaths from you without your consent?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. How could I give you leave while I was asleep?</p>
<p>Q. Did you give them liberty to raise money upon them?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No, I had spent three or four shillings on Richardson in the public-house; but the liquor was free for any body there, I had no money left.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know you had no money left when you went with Richardson to her lodgings?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No, I did not; I did not know that I had left my scissars for money, till I was told of it afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. Had you been acquainted with Richardson before?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you been at the Fountain before you went to her lodging?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I imagine I had been there three or four hours.</p>
<p>Q. Was you sober when you went in at the Fountain?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No, I went there in liquor.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176607020019"/>Q. from Richardson. Did you not give me the things to let you lie with me?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No; I neither gave you them, nor promised you them.</p>
<p>Richardson's defence.</p>
<p>I was in the public-house, the prosecutor happened to come in, his cloaths were very much dirty; he asked to sit down by me; another woman came in, he arose up, and asked her to drink part of a pint of twopenny; the landlord said he was very quarrelsome when in liquor, and would use women very ill; he came up to me and asked me to drink; he took his coat off his back, and asked me to dry it; he had been down in the dirt; the landlord would not let me, so I gave him it again; then he wanted a brush, the landlord would not lend him one. I was coming out to go home about five o'clock. he asked me where I was going, and said, my dear, shall I go with you? I said, I have no home to go to but to my sister's room, and I must go by myself; he said, why may not I go with you as well as another man? I said, I was a disorderly woman, but I thought he was not fit for me; he would go with me, and told me he had no money, but he had things that would make money; he went with me, and stripped the things off, and bid me go and pawn them. I went to Mr. Popard's and offered the coat to pawn, but he not taking it in, I carried it back to him again; then he said, you may go and sell them for something, and buy some other things to wear in their room; saying, he did not care what they were, for he had better at home. After he had got the other things on, he went to bed with me; he not using me well, I got up and dressed myself, and two days after he took me up for a robbery, and after that he wanted to make up the felony for 12 s.</p>
<p>Bourn's defence.</p>
<p>They came home together, he told me he had no money; she said she would not go to bed without he would make her a present; he pulled off his cloaths and gave them to her; she went to the pawnbroker's, and he would lend but 2 s. on the coat; then he desired us to go and sell them, which we did, and bought some old cloaths as he had desired us, then they went to bed.</p>

I came down as soon as I conveniently could, and found the prisoner at the bar in custody of a watchman.</p>
<p>Q. Who locked the door?</p>
<p>Bigge. The street-door was safely locked; the back-door was bolted with two bolts; there was a window-shutter, that I fear was not properly secured; the sash-window was down; the watchman told me he had catched the prisoner with the greatest part of his body in at that window, and had pulled him out by his legs; he shewed me a handkerchief, in which were tied up two flat irons, a round towel, a piece of veal, and a piece of bread; they were tied up in the handkerchief, and safe in my house before I went to bed, which was a little after eleven o'clock, which he said he found upon the prisoner.</p>

I went and saw the prisoner on the opposite side the way to Mr. Bigge's house; I saw him look at the handkerchief which he had in his hand; he set it down by the side of the house, and crossed the way, and went directly in at Mr. Bigge's parlour-window; I went and took hold of his feet, and pulled him out; he was all in but one foot: I said, what business have you here, and whether he belonged to the house: he said he was doing no harm; when he was out, he struggl ed very hard to get away; but I held him fast till assistance came. A man looked out at a window at the next house when he heard us, and said, hold him fast, I will be with you presently. He came down; I desired him to get a cord, which he did, and I tied the prisoner's hands behind him; then I knocked at the door for the gentleman of the house, he came down; I showed him the handkerchief and things in it; (the things mentioned in the indictment, except the veal, produced in court.)</p>

Mr. Bigge came down, and owned the handkerchief, and things in it; in the mean time, the brush dropped out of the prisoner's bosom; when we came to the watch-house the prisoner said, the other man that had been with him, whom he called Murphy, and his wife, were the two people that enticed him to do it, and they left him in it; this he said also before Mr. Alderman Cockayne.</p>

<p>More. No, I did not; he got hold of it at the same time as I did; first of all he begged my pardon; after I came a little way with him, the mob desired me not to forgive him, but take him to prison.

<p>Jos. Hargrave. On the 10th of last month I met the prisoner with two sticks of cam, or red wood, on his shoulder in Cloak lane, about six o'clock in the morning; he threw them down at a smith's shop; he seeing me go in at one door, he went out at the other, and left them there. The smith's man, named Tull, went with me after him; he ran so fast we could not overtake him: (one of the pieces produced in court.)</p>

I am servant to Mr. Tremble, a smith; I was opening the shop-windows on the 10th of June in the morning, about six o'clock; the prisoner came and asked leave to leave the two sticks, and he would fetch them in a day or two, and satisfy me for my trouble. When he came with them, Mr. Hargrave followed him into the shop. Whether the prisoner saw him or not, I cannot say, but he went out at the passage door, and up Walbrook, and was soon out of sight.</p>
<p>Q. Did he run or walk?</p>
<p>Tull. I did not see him; Mr. Hargrave ordered me to keep the wood, and he would go and acquaint his master of it; his master came and looked at it, and ordered me not to let it go.</p>
<p>Q. to Hargrave. Who is your master?</p>
<p>Hargrave. Mr. Crosier is.</p>
<p>Tull. The prisoner called for it about ten or eleven days after, towards ten o'clock at night; as soon as he set eyes on me, he held out his hand to give me sixpence for my trouble. I told him I should not take it; I was ordered to charge a constable. My master being constable, I said to him, you know what you have to do. Master took him in custody, and ordered me to aid and assist: master ordered his kinsman to go and tell Mr. Crosier the man was come for the wood: the prisoner hearing Mr. Crosier's name, he began to wriggle; (I had hold of him) I said he should not get away; then he offered to kick up my heels, but we secured him: we asked him how he came by it; he was a considerable time before he gave any answer, and when he did, he said he bought it for about 4 s. he was ordered to the Counter, and the next morning he was carried to the Mansion-house; there he said he found it in the mud by the shore-side, on the other side the water.</p>

I asked the prisoner how he came by the wood; he said he bought it of a sailor for about 4 s. but did not know where to find him. I was at the Mansion-house when he was there; he said there he found the wood in the mud, in the river Thames, and that he imagined it fell from a wharf, or from on board some vessel.</p>

<p>Q. Who is Mr. Crosier's partner?</p>
<p>Harris. Mr. Waugh is his partner; they had some of this wood at our wharf. I examined the prisoner; he said he found it on the way at low-water-mark, one stick lately, and the other two or three months before.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whose property this piece is here produced?</p>
<p>Harris. I do not know; we have many gentlemen's property in our yard of the same sort of wood, it is very valuable wood.</p>
<p>Q. Do you weigh this sort of wood when you take it in?</p>
<p>Harris. We do; we had weighed in for Mess. Crosier and Co. red wood, and in weighing it again, we found a deficiency of above two hundred weight. We have every gentleman's property put in different parcels; we always keep a particular account at coming in and going out.</p>

<p>Mr. Crosier. It is worth above 40 s.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>We are ordered to pile the wood up in different piles and different parcels, and very often a stick is left unpiled, and now and then all the loose sticks are picked up, and carried up into a lost; I have worked on this wharf eight or nine months; I was as faithful and as handy as any one there; I was used to do work within and without; while I was there I happened to pick up some wood; I would say, it deserves a pint of beer. I have been told they did not know whether I should have a pint or not: after that, I found some in the water; I got a brush, and cleaned them, and put them under my bed; having found no encouragement

<p>Phillips. I was to have received after the rate of 36 s. a chaldron; there were thirty-nine bushels of coals, they cost me 29 s. in the Pool. I took Weaver yesterday morning in his own house; I charged him with being accessary to the sale of these thirteen sacks of coals; he owned they were bought by Elliot, and he owned to his receiving

I was the person that was to trim the coals at the Duke of Marlborough's for Mr. Phillips; Weaver called me out of the cellar, and said I was to go along with his cart; there were thirteen sacks of coals; I brought the coals up, and he met me just at the bottom of the Haymarket; he said, give me the ticket, I'll go and carry it, do you go to Elliot's house and shoot the coals; I went with the cart there.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the cart loaded?</p>
<p>Richardson. It was loaded at Mr. Phillips's wharf; Weaver's name was on the ticket, as car-man; Elliot helped me to shoot the coals at his house; Weaver waited for me, and met me in Pallmall; he said to me, you must give the ticket to the Duke's porter the next time, and tell him I forgot it; he said, the porter is to have a crown of the money, and that he was a party concerned. The next load of coals that I came with, I gave the porter two tickets, and said the other man forgot to give him one before; the porter said the coals have not been here; he would not take the ticket: then I went to Elliot and got 5 s. 3 d. and offered it to the porter; the porter said, I wonder what you mean by this, I'll have the coals in; the next load I went and got another 5 s. 3 d. of Elliot, and offered the porter the two 5 s. 3 d. pieces; he would not take them, and insisted on having the coals in. At night I went to Elliot and got the remainder of the money, 24 s. in the whole; he had three bushels in a sack, thirty-nine bushels in the whole. The next morning Weaver sent his wife to me at the stable; she was like a mad woman, and said her husband had had no rest all night; then he sent for me to an ale-house, and said we must go to Elliot, and make up the money to buy the coals; we went and asked him whether he would give any more money, and we laid the whole money down upon the bench; he said he would give no more; our fellow servants heard of it, and told it about that we had sold a chaldron of coals.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the 24 s.?</p>
<p>Richardson. Weaver took it up, and gave me 2 s. of it.</p>
<p>Q. from Weaver. Whether you did not stay along with me till all the money was gone, and 8 s. of my own money?</p>
<p>Court. That question will do you no good.</p>
