I made a full stop. and with some difficulty got myself back again from them. I went on the other side the gate till the mob was dispersed; I was standing reading a play bill that was stuck up, the prisoner came and laid his hand on my shoulder as before, and said, They will all be acted tonight, meaning the plays; I seeing the place was pretty clear, went to go the way I was going before, they both let me go; when I was about three yards on this side the hospital-gate, again I found myself much about the same situation as before; they took hold of my shoulders as they had before; some of them cry'd again, Drivethro', drive thro'. I had a little money about me and my watch; I clapped my hand down and found my money was safe; they drove me almost down by showing me at my back; after I took my hand away the prisoner let go his hand, and went from me: then I missed my watch: I looked about me and said, I had lost my watch; he that was on my left hand said, You should have taken more care of it; said I, I will take care of you, you insulted me while my pocket was picked; a boy who was standing by me said, He has not the watch, I saw another man take it out of your pocket, and he is gone that way, pointing towards Pye-corner. I was afraid to trust to him; then another boy said he saw him take it, and desired I would go that way with him, and he would shew me him; I went with them,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176610220003"/> and looking down towards Newgate-street, the the first boy said, there he goes, pointing to the prisoner; he was in Windmill-court; the prisoner got by the side of a house; he seeing he was pursued, stooped down, I saw him put his hand behind a spur-stone; I had a suspicion he had laid my watch down there; I ran after him and took him by the arm, and said, give me my watch; he said he had not got my watch, I might search him; said I, I saw you stoop at that place, you shall go back to it; I pull'd him; he said, what are you going to break my arm; I got him to the place, there lay my watch; I took it up and called for a constable; a gentleman near us said, you are a constable yourself, do you take care of him; I brought him here to the Old Bailey, the court was sitting; I took him into an inward room before an Alderman; the prisoner began first to tell his story; he said he was a Whitechapel officer, a housekeeper, and a citizen of London; I believe he is a Whitechapel officer; I have seen his name on a sign as such, in George-yard, Whitechapel.</p>
<p>Q. Did you feel the watch taken from you?</p>

<p>Q. Whereabouts in Smithfield.</p>
<p>Howard. It was betwixt the Cloyster-gate and the Red-cow, that is, on this side the gate, that is in the path way between the rails.</p>
<p>Q. Were there many people there at the time?</p>
<p>Howard. No, there were but very few; I saw him stooping, and saw it lie before him on the ground; he put it directly into his right hand pocket as he rose up: I do not know whether he put it in his coat or waistcoat pocket, then he went on towards the Red-cow</p>
<p>Q. Did you say any thing to him upon his finding it?</p>
<p>Howard. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. How came you in Smithfield at that time?</p>
<p>Howard. I was out of work</p>
<p>Q. When did you know of the prisoner's being taken up?</p>
<p>Howard. I heard he was in trouble.</p>
<p>Q. When did you hear that?</p>
<p>Howard. That was two or three days after.</p>
<p>Q. Where?</p>
<p>Howard. That was of a stranger at a public-house, the Ship in Drury-lane; he told me a man was taken up for picking a pocket in Bartholomew-fair, and committed to Newgate.</p>
<p>Q. What did you do upon that?</p>
<p>Howard. I said I saw a man pick up a watch there; this was one Sunday evening.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go to the prisoner after this?</p>
<p>Howard. I went to Newgate out of curiosity on the Sunday to see him.</p>
<p>Q. Did any body go with you?</p>
<p>Howard. No, I went alone.</p>
<p>Q. Who did you enquire for?</p>
<p>Howard. I did not enquire for any body; the gate was open, and I went up to the door; there I saw the man by accident.</p>
<p>Q. What did you say to him?</p>
<p>Howard. I said, So you are got here for picking the watch up; he said yes, I am got here.</p>
<p>Q. Was that all you said?</p>
<p>Howard. It was all I said, all that passed between us; I just looked round on the rest of the prisoners, and then came away.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got a subpoena?</p>
<p>Howard. I have (producing it.)</p>
<p>Q. How came you by it?</p>
<p>Howard. A woman brought it to me yesterday.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell the prisoner you knew any thing about the watch?</p>
<p>Howard. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell him where you lived?</p>
<p>Howard. No.</p>
<p>Q. Then how came he to know how to send you the subpoena?</p>
<p>Howard. I told it to the landlord at the public house.</p>
<p>Q. Can you guess how the woman that brought the paper came to know your name, or the place where you live?</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176610220004"/>Howard. No, Sir.</p>
<p>Q. Where did she find you?</p>
<p>Howard. She brought it me where I work, at the Bell in Drury-lane.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you used the Ship alehouse?</p>
<p>Howard. I have for this month past.</p>
<p>Q. What work are you employed in at the Bell in Drury-lane?</p>
<p>Howard. I am a hot-presser.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who that woman was that brought the subpoena?</p>
<p>Howard. I know nothing of her; I cannot say who she is.</p>
<p>Q. Did not the prisoner ask you where you lived?</p>
<p>Howard. No; I told the landlord at the Ship I saw the man pick up a watch; he asked me my name and place of abode, in order that I might be sent for if wanted.</p>
<p>Q. What is your master's name?</p>
<p>Howard. His name is Cornish.</p>

<p>Q. Whereabouts was this in Covent-garden?</p>
<p>Pearson. This was under the piazzas.</p>
<p>Q. On which side?</p>
<p>Pearson. On the right hand side near the playhouse door.</p>
<p>Q. How near?</p>
<p>Pearson. Within two doors of the play-house gate.</p>
<p>Q. How long have you known Donnoly?</p>
<p>Pearson. I have known him in St. George's Hospital; I was there for a sore leg, and I left him there when I came away.</p>
<p>Q. How long is this ago?</p>
<p>Pearson. He was there about three weeks before I came out, and I came out seven weeks ago today.</p>
<p>Q. Did he buy the stockings?</p>
<p>Pearson. The woman asked him 3 s. 6 d. for them. A man was going by, he happened to know him; he asked him to lend him a shilling, which he did; he bought and paid for them, and I gave him a pot of beer at the corner house, as we came out from under the piazzas to Russel-street.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the man that he borrowed the shilling of?</p>

<p>Q. Where was this?</p>
<p>Wadsley. This was under the piazzas in Covent-garden.</p>
<p>Q. Whereabouts under the piazzas?</p>
<p>Wadsley. It was just at the bottom of James-street, on the same side the play house is on, at a bagnio door.</p>
<p>Q. What person did he buy them of?</p>
<p>Wadsley. He bought them of a woman, she took them out of a bundle.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to be there?</p>
<p>Wadsley. I met him by chance.</p>
<p>Q. What did he give for the stockings?</p>
<p>Wadsley. He gave 3 s. 6 d. for them, he paid her a half crown, and the shilling I lent him.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this?</p>

<p>Wadsley. I have known him about 15 months; he used to work at the new buildings.</p>
<p>Q. How has he been employed lately?</p>
<p>Wadsley. I do not know.</p>
<p>Q. to prisoner. Can you give the jury a reason why you pawned them so soon after you bought them?</p>
<p>Prisoner. I had no money, and I did not know what to do; I thought they were cheap or I had not bought them.</p>
<p>Webb's defence.</p>
<p>I was drunk, and I bought some stockings of a young man last Saturday morning; I gave 16 s. for fourteen pair; I had but 2 s. left, and I owed my landlady some money, and I pawned them to raise my rent.</p>
<p>Taylor's defence.</p>
<p>Webb is my master; he said he had broke into a little of his landlady's rent, and he sent me to pawn these stockings; we went to the gentleman; he said, how came you by them; Webb said he bought them of a pedlar; Powell said they were bought where we sell oyners, by the Black Horse; then the gentleman said, bring the man to give you a character and I'll buy them.</p>
<p>Powell's defence.</p>
<p>Webb called for some purl; we drank it; he bid us both come home; he said he had broke into his rent, and desired us to pawn the stockings to make up his rent, and the stockings were stopped; when he went in at the pawnbroker's, we went out; I pawned one pair at Mr. Bland's for 1 s. and gave him the money.</p>
<p>Taylor. Webb pawned two pair at one place in a strange name, and a young body pawned two or three pair for him; he said he had bought 14 pair for 16 s. of a pedlar.</p>

<p>Q. What is his character?</p>
<p>Field. I never knew any ill by him.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know that he was in confinement before?</p>
<p>Field. That was when he was apprentice to me, but they proved nothing against him.</p>

<interp inst="t17661022-12-person159" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> , giving an account that they had got the two coachmen that had robbed the girl of her box; Sir Richard desired me to go up and bring them there; I went, and brought both the prisoners to Guildhall; there Siseland made a very free confession, and said he was concerned with the other prisoner in taking the box and opening it, and taking the things, and where they were; I found some at this last witness's house, some in Wardour street, some in Knave's-acre; he said his wife pawned most of them.</p>
<p>Q. What said Barrill?</p>
<p>Pain. He said but very little; I asked him while he was in the lodge at New Prison about them; he told me he had pawned one himself at a pawnbroker's in Wardour-street; I had Siseland and he handcuffed, and took them in a coach there, and there I found the gown as he had said; the pawnbroker let me have it very readily: his name was Hanse.</p>
<p>Q. In whose name was it pledged?</p>
<p>Pain. It was pledged in the name of Barrill, for I think 6 s. (produced and deposed to by the prosecutrix) I found a bundle at a workhouse by Berkeley-square, by the prisoner Siseland's direction, there were a great many of them; I found another gown at another pawnbroker's at Knave's-acre, by the information of Siseland, (all produced and deposed to by prosecutrix) there was a gown the prosecutrix described, which I heard Barrill own he had flung away.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. I have got most of my things again.</p>
<p>Barrill's defence.</p>
<p>I was going home with my coach; just at the farther end of Great Russel-street, I saw something lying in the street; I got down to see what it was and found it to be a box; I took and put it into my coach and left it at Sifeland's house, and asked him if he would let his wife carry some of the things to pawn, accordingly she did.</p>
<p>Siseland's defence.</p>
<p>This man came and told me he had found a box and desired leave to leave it in my room, and I gave him liberty: I am a coachman also; I was then just come out of the workhouse, I had been sick.</p>

I was in my cart near the turnpike, the prisoner was coming with his ass; I got down out of the cart, and asked him what he had to sell, and clapped my hand upon the sack, and found they were geese; the prisoner said they were all sold; then I went on about my business to Staines; there I got the headborough, and took the prisoner up at the Turk's-head.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I shall clear myself as well as I can: on the Saturday before I was apprehended, I set out from the Turk's-head with intention to come to London, to pay a little money that I owed to Mr. Conner, at the Bull's-head in Kent street; coming to Brentford I met some acquaintance, and got in liquor, they persuaded me to go to Staines; coming thro' Hounslow some boys play'd the rogue with my ass; they cut the crupper, saddle and bridle, and used me ill; I was advised to make the best of my way to Staines, by people that came and took my part; when I came upon the heath, I lay down to sleep, and awaked about four in the morning; there came a man up to me and said, My cock, will you buy some geese; I said, where are they; he said they are not far off; I said, how came you by them here at this time of the morning; he said he drove them from Wiltshire, and they grew so tired he was obliged to kill them, and as you have an ass you are capable of carrying them; he took me to a ditch, there they all lay: I thought I could lose no great matter by them, so I gave him 19 s. for the nineteen geese: I cry about hair skins, rabbit skins, old rags, and old flint glass.</p>

<p>Garner. About two yards and a half.</p>
<p>Q. Was you near enough to see any sort of impression?</p>
<p>Garner. I was not.</p>
<p>Council. Then you suppose it was money from the size, and the circumstance of being sent out to change money?</p>
<p>Garner. That is all I speak from.</p>
<p>Q. Did he do any thing to the guinea you saw in the skin?</p>
<p>Garner. No, nothing at all as I saw.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any filings in the skin at that time?</p>
<p>Garner. I cannot be positive.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any gold besides the guinea there?</p>
<p>Garner. No, none at all; there were silver filings, no silver money.</p>
<p>Q. Was he working any pieces of silver?</p>
<p>Garner. There were pieces of silver lying near him.</p>
<p>Q. Did he use this skin in his trade?</p>
<p>Garner. Yes, to catch the filings.</p>
<p>Q. Whether the filings do not remain in a file till they are brushed out?</p>
<p>Garner. They do.</p>

I am an officer; I apprehended the prisoner the 30th of August, Mr. Nash was with me; we were called up stairs; he was locked into a garret where they worked; we went in suddenly upon him, he heard the noise, and was standing up when we went into the room; we looked about, but did not observe any thing at first; my partner searched him, and found three guineas and a half in his pocket; and in the mean time the prisoner took a guinea out of his pocket, and laid it upon a block where a cloth lay hollow, he seemed to lay it under the hollow part of the cloth, but I saw it between his fingers and thumb before he laid it down; the other three guineas and a half were found in the other waistcoat pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Had that guinea he put under the cloth any particular marks upon it?</p>
<p>Rothwell. It had been just fresh filed.</p>
<p>Q. Was it filed all round?</p>
<p>Rothwell. No, there was but about two thirds of it filed; (the guinea produced) I saw several files, one of which had gold in the teeth, that lay on the bench directly over the skin, near the filing place; the other files lay near to the same place.</p>
<p>Q. Were there any filings in this skin or apron?</p>
<p>Rothwell. I took out the filings and put them in a paper, and brought them away, and delivered them to the master of the Assay-office at the Mint; I have part of the filings that were left, which the gentleman did not take of me; (produced in court.)</p>
<p>Q. Was there any gold work in the shop?</p>
<p>Rothwell. We could not find any, and we searched very narrowly.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask the prisoner whether he had any gold work about?</p>
<p>Rothwell. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any books in his custody?</p>
<p>Rothwell. Yes; the next witness will give an account of that.</p>

<p>I WAS employed with Mr. Rothwell in making this search; we had a warrant against the prisoner, it was some time before we could execute it; when we came into the room, he was very much confused, and stood up; I searched his breeches pocket, and found some silver, but no gold; in his waistcoat pocket I found two guineas and two half guineas; while I was searching his waistcoat pocket, my partner saw something pass, I cannot say I did; I saw some dust in the skin, that looked like gold.</p>
<p>Q. Was it two guineas and two half guineas, or three guineas.</p>
<p>Nash. My partner made a mistake, there were two whole guineas and two half guineas; as to the other guinea, I saw it on the block. I did not see it put there, it was designed, I believe, to be concealed; I took all the books I could find, and brought them to Mr. Chamberlaine; we found no gold-work, notwithstanding we searched.</p>
<p>Mr. Chamberlaine. I received these books of Nash the officer, they are in the same condition I received them (produced in court.)</p>
<p>Q. to clerk of arraigns. Read (it is read.)</p>

<p>Council for Crown Now your Lordship will see by the assay-master, what the proper weight is of the several pieces.</p>
<p>Court. This looks like a rule, how much may be taken off to reduce them; here is one grain upon a port, repeated in different columns.</p>

<interp inst="t17661022-31-person320" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am assay-master.</p>
<p>Q. What is the proper weight a guinea should weigh?</p>
<p>Lucas. A guinea should weigh 5 penny-weights, 9 grains, and very near a half. In the book, against a guinea, is put 5 pennyweights, 4 grains, that is, 5 grains and a half lighter; so that 5 grains and a half must be taken off to bring them down to that weight.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever weigh this guinea here produced?</p>
<p>Lucas. It weighs 4 pennyweights, 21 grains, and a half, that is, about 11 grains and a half under the true weight.</p>
<p>Q. How much is that guinea worth?</p>
<p>Lucas. About 20 pence short of the real value.</p>
<p>Q. There were some filings found by the man, part of which he delivered to you, and the other part are now produced in court, Did you ever weigh these filings?</p>
<p>Lucas. The whole filings weighed about 10 grains.</p>
<p>Q. How much does that guinea and the filings weigh?</p>
<p>Lucas. It is within a grain and a half of the true weight.</p>
<p>Q. Did you try the filings?</p>
<p>Lucas. I tried a part, which I found worse than the standard, about a ninetieth part below the standard.</p>
<p>Q. I should be glad to know, whether by sweeping the filings from the skin, a small particle of other metal might not get among it?</p>
<p>Lucas. A small particle of another matter might cause it.</p>
<p>Q. What coin is this guinea?</p>
<p>Lucas. It is of

<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I acknowledge the files, that they had gold sticking in them; I have files for gold, and files for silver; when I work in gold, I use gold files, and let them lie till I work in gold again; as for the guinea, I believe I can prove where I took it; I always have gold and silver in my shop; I have
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="176610220023"/> two shops, which are always open for any body to come in, the keys are on the outside.</p>
<p>For the prisoner.</p>
<p>- Goadby. I live at Lambeth, and am a grocer; the prisoner received 3 guineas of me the day before he was taken up, for a watch which I bought of him; one of the guineas he scrupled, on account of its being a light one; I agreed to take it back again, provided he did not get it off; how I came by it I do not know; whether this is the guinea in dispute I cannot say.</p>
<p>Q. Was any thing remarkable in that guinea?</p>
<p>Goadby. Yes, it rather looked smaller, some part smooth, some rough, it had a very remarkable look.</p>
<p>Q. Did it look as if part of it had been taken away?</p>
<p>Goadby. It did; I thought it was rather too light, and he proved it to me.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a new guinea or an old one?</p>
<p>Goadby. I cannot tell.</p>
<p>Q. Was any thing particular in the appearance of it?</p>
<p>Goadby. The edges were in some places smooth, in others rough; I do not know how it came so.</p>
<p>Q. Was it dirty, as many are?</p>
<p>Goadby. No, it was a bright guinea.</p>
<p>Q. Was any part particularly bright?</p>
<p>Goadby. Yes, it looked as if it had not been in common use.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take it in your hand, or observe any thing particular in the feel of it?</p>
<p>Goadby. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever deal with the prisoner before?</p>
<p>Goadby. Yes, we have had dealings.</p>
<p>Q. He has had guineas of you before, I suppose?</p>
<p>Goadby. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did he ever object to your money, or you to his?</p>
<p>Goadby. No, never.</p>
<p>Q. What has he dealt with you in?</p>
<p>Goadby. In tea, and other articles in the grocery way; I have received of him to the amount of 14 and 15 shillings at a time.</p>
<p>- Blaney. I went into the prisoner's workshop, and looked through the hole to see if I could see what a person was doing of as he sat at the board; I went again last Saturday, and sat in the same position a person would that was to work. I have known the prisoner about 8 years, I always looked upon him to be a very honest man, and one that lived in credit.</p>
<p>Q. Can you tell the meaning of these words in the book, May 25, began gaming.</p>
<p>Blaney. No, I do not.</p>

I went into the prisoner's workshop, and looked through the hole, to see Mr. Blaney sitting at work on the prisoner's seat; I looked as nigh as I could into every place, there was no such thing as seeing what he was filing, he sat about 2 yards from the hole, he sat with his back to the hole; we were let into the room afterwards, and stood within a foot of him; if he sat sideways, I could not see what he was filing of; I have known him four or five years; I believe he has pretty good business; I never heard any thing of him but a good character.</p>
<p>Cross examination.</p>
<p>Q. Did you look through all the holes?</p>
<p>Buckley. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Could you discover whether he was filing a tankard, or a thing the size of a guinea?</p>
<p>Buckley. Not if he sat sideways, I could not see his hand nor his apron.</p>

I am a taylor; my master was to pay me there that night; when he went to Mr. Baxter for change, Mr. Baxter said he could not do it; then he suspected he had a thief in the house; the prisoner call'd for the paper, and was reading it I believe an hour and an half; when the people went from the table he was at, he turned round and laid the paper over the tankard, and looking afterwards, I found the tankard was gone; I went to Mr. Baxter at the door, and said, the man has stole your tankard; he said he knew that; the prisoner came past me into the yard; I collared him and said, You have got a tankard of Mr. Baxter's; he said, I have not, how can you charge a gentleman so; search me; then Mr. Baxter took him by the collar, and I felt and found the tankard hanging behind him; there was a handkerchief put through the handle; I laid hold of that and pulled it from him; (produced and deposed to.)</p>

<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I was drinking in that house; there were a great many people in the room; Mr. Baxter gave them a gallon of beer to watch me while I was there, to see if I took away this tankard; I took it to carry it to the bar, and Mr. Baxter took hold of one arm, and that man the other, and the tankard dropped down. I was brought up with my uncle, a woodmonger, in Scotland, and am waiting for a place under the government.</p>
