<p>Q. What is the prisoner at the bar?</p>
<p>Scott. He keeps an old clothes-shop in Red-lion-market, Whitecross-street.</p>
<p>Q. to Smith. How was you paid?</p>
<p>Smith. I was paid part in money, and a note; they came in all to 26 l. and 6 d. I have a note of hand for 6 l. 8 s. the prisoner at the bar paid all the money, saving the 6 l. 8 s. for which he gave a note of hand.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>On the 21st of April Territt came to my house, and asked me if I would be so kind as to go to Mr. Smith, and get him to let me have the watches out for the use of him; I asked him why he could not go himself; he said, because there was a writ out against him, and he lived just by Mr. Pain; he said there were six of them; he gave me 19 l. 12 s. 6 d. and desired me to lay down the rest of the money; I said I could not, for I was going to Yorkshire, and should want money; he said, if he had not them out directly, he should lose the sale of them, the gentleman that was to have them was going abroad; I went to Mr. Smith, and desired him to let me have these six watches; Mr. Smith said, he believed Mr. Territt to be a very honest man; he brought them one at a time; they came to 22 l. and 6 d. I paid him 19 l. 12 s. 6 d. and desired him to trust me the rest a day or two; he said, if I thought proper, he would take my note; I gave him a note, and he delivered the watches to me, and I carried them to Territt's house, and delivered them to him.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. When was your shop broke open?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. It was broke open in January last, and I advertised the watches above a month in all the papers, and handbills, describing them almost all.</p>
<p>Q. to Smith. How came you, when all this was done, not to make a discovery to Mr. Scott?</p>
<p>Smith. None of these watches tallied with the papers.</p>

<p>Mrs. Cain. I live in the Fleet-market; a woman brought this gown to me on a Sunday night, about a month ago; I knew nothing of the woman; she asked me if I would buy a gown; I said, I did not want one; she said, it is Sunday night, and I cannot go to the pawnbroker's with it; said I, is it your own; she said it is not, it is the property of one Mrs. Morris, in Salisbury-court; she desired I would lend her 2 s. upon it, and said, she had not had a morsel to day; I lent her 2 s. I said, do you come for the gown to-morrow morning; she said she would; my maid said it is a pretty colour, she should like it, if I could get it for a guinea; I never opened it, nor looked at it; the next morning the woman came, and gave me the money I lent her, and said, if I had a mind for it, the price was 16 s. I said, if there is any dispute about it, bring me my money, and you shall have your gown again; that same day I saw the prisoner, who said it was her gown; I asked her if she had had the money; she said she had; I said, how came you to sell your gown; she said, she sold it for want.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I never knew that Mrs. Letter had such a gown in her house; the reason I quitted my lodging was, I owed her a little money, and could not pay.</p>

<p>Q. Did you find your money?</p>
<p>Clark. No, it was all gone, except one farthing; the prisoner before he came in, met Mr. Green, he keeps company with his daughter; he went from this up in the Strand; when we took him he would not confess any thing; lifting up his arm, four shillings dropt out of his sleeve; then he confessed the fact; he offered me these four shillings, and he told a gentleman that was in the kitchen, that he would give me 4 s. and a note of hand to receive 3 s. a week, till all the money was paid that I had lost.</p>

The prisoner was in liquor; he disowned having any money about him, but putting his hand up the four shillings dropt out of his sleeve; he acknowledged he had the crown piece, and had changed it, and that he was willing to make satisfaction, by giving him a note, to take his wages of the paymaster serjeant.</p>
<p>Q. How did he say he got the money?</p>
<p>Dye. He did not confess he broke open the box, but he said he had robbed him, and that he was drunk, and did not know what he did.</p>
<p>Q. Was it the same day he took it?</p>
<p>Dye. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was he drunk?</p>
<p>Dye. Yes, but not so far but he understood things very well, he knew what he was about.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence.</p>
<p>I did not take any waistcoat out of the room, not did I own taking the waistcoat nor the coat; I had no crown piece, that four shillings, I received of a serjeant the Saturday before; I was in liquor, and do not know that I said any thing about it.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. We took him up but yesterday.</p>

<p>Martin. It was between eight and nine in the morning.</p>

<p>Mr. Robinson. I am a butcher, I have known the prisoner eight or ten years, he is a drover; all I know of him is, he has drove many a score of bullocks for me, and brought them home safe like an honest fellow.</p>
