I did not see them, for they were gone out at the door before I got up stairs. I found the parlour door open, and the closet door, in which the plate was kept, was open. There was taken out of that closet a silver pepper castor, a silver cream-pot, and four silver table spoons. A drawer in the bureau was open, out of which the scissars and the buckles were taken: they took them out of the cases, and left the cases. I had seen them before that day.

We heard the cry, Stop thief! and immediately we pursued them. We just lost sight of them when we came to the corner of Queen-street. We asked a green-woman if she had seen three men run by. She said they were just gone down Queen-street. We went down Queen-street, and then we saw the same three man again; they were standing together in a cluster.</p>

Mr. Life seiz'd two of them; they struggled, and one got away from him; and just at that time I heard something drop from Coleman. Life had hold of him. I ask'd, what has he dropt? Mr. Life stoop'd and pick'd up this cream-jug (producing it). It was Coleman dropt it. Mr. Life felt down him, and ask'd him if he had got any more of these things about him. Then I left him, and pursued Ogilby, the other prisoner, and Mr. Pearce stopt him. Ogilby, when he came to the watch-house, said he was very faint; he desired to sit down at the watch-house door, as the watch-house was shut; and this pepper-box was found next day, as I am informed, in the place where he sat. (The cream-jug deposed to by the prosecutrix.)</p>

<p>Crompton. I am not clear in that, he is one of the three.</p>

As I was coming up Dean-street about half an hour after six o'clock, I heard St. Ann's bell ring before I came to it; when I got to the Highlander, which is three doors from Mrs. Jones's, I saw the two prisoners and another run by; I knew them as soon as I saw them; I had seen them at the justices before. I had often seen the three together. I am sure the prisoners. were two of them. As soon as I saw them I said to Crompton, they three have been doing no good; the words were not out of my mouth before I heard a woman crying, stop thief! I said to Crompton, you can't run so fast as me, but follow me that they may may do me no injury. When I came to the corner of Queen-street I lost fight of them. I asked a green woman if she had seen three men run by; she said they were just gone down the street; as soon as I had turned the corner I saw them before me. When I came just by Mr. Hammond's, the Glazier, in Greek-street, they were all three standing together. I said nothing but immediately caught hold of two of them; I had not fast hold of one; he got from me and run down the street,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177112040004"/> I kept the other fast, which is Coleman; they all three stood so close together that I can't say whether he that got from me was Ogilby, or the man that got clear off. I am sure Ogilby. was one of the three. Mr. Crompton called out, stop thief! and one Mr. Pearce stopt Ogilby. He was about seven or eight yards behind the other. I asked Coleman what he had stolen; I saw something in his hand; I took hold of his wrist and immediately he dropt something, I stoopt directly and picked up this cream pot. (Produced and deposed to by the prosecutrix.) They declared at the watch-house that they were strangers to each other. I told them that I knew them well; Ogilby sat down on the stop at the watch-house door, and said he was saint; the pepper-box was picked up near the place where he sat.</p>

<p>I was going about my business; I passed two men; this man came up to me and catched hold of my collar, and of another man's coat.

I was informed by my apprentice, on the 24th of November, about seven o'clock in the morning, that my house was broke open. I immediately got up; I found my shop was broke open; the door was fastened only with a hasp, which was so slight that it would fall down of itself sometimes by shaking; the shop opens into a back yard, and then there is a wall which a person might get over, by some pantiles that lie there. I found a tinder-box, that usually stood in the kitchen, had been removed from there to the shop, and a rush-light was removed from the shop into the kitchen: my bureau, which stood in the kitchen, was broke open and there were sixteen guineas taken out that were in an iron box in the top of the bureau, and eight shillings was taken out of a little drawer in the bureau; the flap was let down, and there was a tool that I worked with found on the top of the bureau; my great coat, which hung by the side of the bureau, was gone; and the silver spoons were taken out of the beauset, and a table spoon was taken from the cupboard in the kitchen. The window-frame appeared dirty, as if trod upon by some person that got in at the window. I am sure it was fast over night; I was last up in the house over night; I went to bed that night about eleven o'clock.</p>

<p>- Mince. I have lodged in this house eleven years. When I got up at five in the morning. I saw the bar open, and I alarmed Mrs. Bellinger. The top shutter was put down against the door; the till appeared to be cut open with a knife.</p>
<p>- Wetherby. I am a watch man. I came down by the prosecutor's door at ten o'clock, then all was safe; at half after twelve having called the hour I went to my box; there was a young fellow. in a white coat, whistled between his fingers; then a man opened a sash in the prosecutor's house, and put his head and shoulders out at the window, and said where are they: the man in the street said, they are all together, will not you come down and go

<p>Q. How long might it be before you came back?</p>
<p>Wetherby. More than a quarter of an hour. The place where the back door is, don't belong to me. It is within sight of my stand. I look'd at the door when I came back; all was fast then.</p>
<p>Q. Did you hear any noise in the house?</p>
<p>Wetherby. No; I called the hour at two; I saw nothing then. When I came back from calling the half hour after two, Sam came up into the court.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know his sirname?</p>
<p>Wetherby. No; he had been a servant to the prosecutor but a short time before; I thought he had been so then: He threw something up at the same path that the man had before looked out at, which was two stories high. I told him not to offer to throw any thing up at that time, for I would not suffer him to do any such thing. Then I saw the sash go up, and a man put out his hand, and wagged his fingers, by way of beckoning to him. Then Sam went away, and the man pulled the sash down again: Then the clock struck three. I took my lanthorn, and went round, and called the hour. When I came back, my candle was almost out; I had left a spare candle in my box, which was gone when I came back. I went and challenged some draymen with having taken it; they said they had not. I walked into the alley, and saw the door standing a little a jar; that was about half an hour after three. I thought I heard something stirring about the place: I struck the door three times with my staff, and two young fellows jumped out at the door. I asked them what they were doing there: They said they were going to their work. Then presently another came out. I saw the glimpse of a candle a going up stairs, but it was put out in a minute. I took care of the door till Mr. Mince came down: Then I told him they had got careless lodgers, for I did not think they were thieves; if I had, I would have had them all taken. Sam was the third that came out of the house: I did not know then that Sam had left the service.</p>

I saw Sam the waiter, and one Bowman, and another man that was taken up and discharged at Sir John Fielding's. There were five or six standing in the court. Sam said Moxon, I wish you would lend me six-pence, for I have left my place, and have no money. I was going to lay at Mr. Bellenger's that night; it is a public-house. As I was going to lend Sam six-pence, while I had my hand in my pocket, Farrell put his hand into my pocket, and picked out a glove and comb. Sam said, if you take any thing out of his pocket, I'll knock your head off; so he gave me my comb and glove again. Shepherd was coming home along with me; Moody attempted to pick his pocket; I am certain Farrell was one of the men that was in the court. When we searched him, we took about 4 l. out of his pocket.
