I was in the shop at the time; he paid two crown pieces and a six-pence for it, but not a new six-pence.

<p>Rooke. Some of them were there till eleven o'clock that night; I can't say whether Collins was.</p>
<p>Q. to Collins. Had you any conversation about going out that night?</p>
<p>Collins. Nothing more than common. I got up again about half after eleven o'clock. Burn and Parker came up to me as I got up; we went to several places about Westminster; then we went to Marybone, and from thence to Chelsea. There I broke open the shutters, and got into a house; it was fastened with a bolt, which was pulled off; afterwards I forced it open with two chissels; the nail was drawn out of the bolt; I broke a pane of glass, and threw a handkerchief over the bell to prevent its ringing, and took it out. Burn was at the corner of the street to watch; Parker was out at the gate three or four times. I drew out a sort of a brass-headed iron that was in the sash, and then threw the sash up. Parker went in, but he ran out again almost as soon as he got in. We took such a little desk as this out of a closet by the window; we had a tinder-box with us; I broke the cabinet open when we got into the lane, and found some crown pieces in it, either eight or nine, and some new shillings and six-pences, I can't tell how many; also a two-guinea piece, a black snuff-box, and a picture inside it like a bracelet; there was a little stone, and a large medal that seemed to be of one of the Popes. We threw the desk in the road, and the papers too. We did not divide the money regularly; I had the crown pieces in my pocket. I lent Parker one crown to buy his cloaths; Burn had two crowns of me before that; Parker had the sixpences and shillings. I put the crowns underneath the seat of the coach as we were drawn down to the Mansion-house. We changed two of the crowns coming down Holborn. I bought this coat just above Mr. Burke's shop, and paid two crowns for it.</p>

<p>Collins. It was done in the morning between three and four.</p>
<p>Q. from Parker. Had not I some new silver in my pocket a day or two before this happened?</p>
<p>Collins. Yes, and I asked him how he came by it; he said, what was that to me?</p>
<p>Q. Was the silver you paid away at Mr. Burke's shop part of the money that came out of the house?</p>
<p>Collins. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what became of the snuffbox?</p>
<p>Collins. No; I gave it to them</p>

Then the prisoner said, boy flung his hat in at the window, and, said he, I have found my hat. I said, Yes, my lad, and I have found you. Then I perceived the sash of the window was flung up. I told my maid to observe the window was up, and that two coats and a waistcoat were bundled up and removed from where I left them. I searched him, but I found nothing on him. I left the cloaths in the morning for my maid to brush.</p>
<p>Q. You said your maid was confused; what do you attribute that to?</p>
<p>O'Brien. Finding the boy there, as she knew nothing of it.</p>

My master was out on the 3d of December; I brushed the cloaths, two coats and a waistcoat, and throw'd them on a chair, where they always hung; no person was in the parlour after I put them on the chair, till my master came in.</p>
<p>Q. Was the sash up or down at four o'clock?</p>
<p>Fowler. Shut down. The prisoner was standing between the chairs, and the two coats and the waistcoat were bundled up, and lay in the chair they had hung on before. He said a boy threw his hat in at the window, and that he knocked at the door; that he could make no body hear, so came in at the window.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>As I was coming by the prosecutor's house, I stopt to make water: two lads came up to me; they took my hat off my head, and threw it in at the window of this house. I went and knocked at the door; I could not make any body hear; I thought it was an empty house, so I got in at the window; I had not been in a minute before that gentleman came in, and said I was a thief, and he would take me before a justice. I had been at sea, and I was going to the Marine Society to go again on board a merchantman. I used to do things for my father, who is a porter. I used to go on errands for gentlemen.</p>

Knowing them both again, I dogg'd them into the Golden-lion at Hyde-park corner; then I got my father, and secured them; I said these are the two men that robbed me and my aunt in the Park; they said they had not been in the Park for four years, for that they were deserters.

I came to town to the Three Pigeons; I left a piece with a man there, a countryman of mine; I never offered to sell it. I went and gave a man a shilling to put it in his hay-cart, and carry it to Mr. Prebble's.

On the 12th of December, about eleven in the forenoon, I saw the prisoner come out of one of the warehouses with a basket of raisins and the sack on his back. On my going to the door, he slept back a step or two, and throwed it off his back. I stopt him at the warehouse door, and asked what business he had there, and how he could have the impudence to rob us in the middle of the day. He fell on his knees, and begged for pardon. I found in the sack a basket of Malaga raisins, about 50 lb. It was one of five we had received on the 5th of December from Reading; that was missing out of the five; the constable has had it ever since. The sack lay empty in the warehouse.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>There was seven or eight of us went down to look for work; we went to the bottom of the wharf, and they employed about four of us. I staid to see if there would be any thing for me. I went into this warehouse, and saw this sack by the door, and something in it. I kick'd it with my foot to see if it was a jobb for me, if it was but two-pence or three-pence. The warehouse is common for any body to go in from the wind. I had no design to steal it; I never did such a thing in my life.</p>

I was a little elevated in liquor. I did not feel the woman taking the watch nor the money till she was going away; then I had the presence of mind to feel for my watch, and it was gone. Then I said hold of her.</p>
<p>Q. How long was you together?</p>
<p>Morrison. About two minutes.</p>
<p>Q. Did any familiarities pass?</p>
<p>Morrison. No: Then she denied the watch, and made several protestations, and opened her bosom for me to search her. Then the watch came up, and some people, and used me ill. When the watchman came, I gave charge of her. She was carried to the watch-house, where she was searched, but nothing was found on her. Mr. Barrett, the constable, coming by, asked what was the matter; and there was a woman in the watch-house that saw the watch hanging by her side; the seal was tuck'd under her petticoat-string behind. I lost the two shillings at the same time, I cannot say out of which pocket. I don't know what money I had; she owned to taking five shillings to the mistress of the watch-house. I can safely swear I had two shillings in my pocket; I received eight or nine that night, some of one Mr. Gold, and some of a person in Chick-lane.</p>
<p>Q. How long before you met the woman had you the watch?</p>
<p>Morrison. I am very sure I had it when I met her.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take it out while you conversed with her?</p>
<p>Morrison. No.</p>
<p>- Barrett. I am the officer. I saw this woman at the watch-house. I went to know what was the matter, and there was a noise about a watch and some money that was lost. Some people appeared to her character, and said he was drunk, and lost his watch, that I was almost persuaded of her innocence. A woman that was a prisoner said she certainly had the watch. I then searched her, and found it between her legs in her hand; I believe she was going to shift it. (The watch produced, and deposed to by the prosecutor.) There was no money found upon her. She could not tell what to say, she seemed confused. He was a little in liquor, he was not drunk; he had a black eye, and had been ill used. He told the number and maker's name of the watch directly; he was sober enough to know what he did.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>I was going down Drury-lane; this man met me, and took me down Steward's-rents, and asked me to oblige him. I asked him to make me a present; he said he would go and get change; I would not trust him, so he gave me the watch while he went to get change, and then he wanted to have it again; on my refusal, he brought three watchmen to take me to the watch-house.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Did you give her the watch?</p>
<p>Prosecutor. No.</p>

<p>I found the portmanteau about ten o'clock, about the 11th of December, as I was coming home from Islington. I was in doubt what to do with them, so I thought it best to make away with them as soon as possible, because, as it was open, more might be laid to my charge than there was there.</p>

I looked over my shoulder, and saw the prisoners and another man running across the street into a passage. I was afraid they would knock me on the head if I went after them; so I stopt, and they came out again in the main street, and said, Now we have got it, we don't know what to make of it. I took Fenley by the breast, and said, You are the man that picked my pocket. He swore a great oath, and said he would knock me down with a carman's whip; and when the mob came up, and encreased, they got away. We went after them as far as the Hermitage, where we took Fenley, and carried him into the Sun, the bottom of Nightingale-lane. I never found my things again. I am certain these are the people that robbed me. I looked over my shoulder, and saw enough of them to know them.</p>
<p>Q. Should you know the third person that is not taken?</p>
<p>Paxton. Yes; when I collared Fenley, the other was close by, and bid him knock me down.</p>
<p>Q. from the Prisoners. Why did not you lay hold of us before we went into the passage?</p>
<p>Paxton. Because I was alone, and could not encounter with three?</p>
<p>- Brown. I was passing by; seeing a mob, I stopped. and saw the two prisoners and another man; one had a whip. I went with the prosecutor, when they run away, to take them. When they came out of the mob, the tall man had the horse-whip. We followed them to the end of Nightingale-lane.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the men you saw at the end of Nightingale-lane, were the same as came out of the passage?</p>
<p>Brown. I cannot positively say: he said he could swear to all three of them. Banks came in to vindicate the other; I believe they swore pretty much, and he asked Fenley if he knew him; he said, No, d - n your eyes, I never saw you in my life before.</p>
<p>Banks's Defence.</p>
<p>I was just come from Deptford; I came
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177201090018"/> through Wapping, and I went away as far as from here to Newgate, where I stopped to make water. A man came up to me, and asked what I was peeping into the window for. I said, to see what was the matter. He said, he believed I was one concerned, and I should go with him. I asked what he meant by that, and made a resistance, and I asked if he knew me. He said, No; he broke out of the watch-house; and I do not know whether this is the lad that was in the watch-house with me or no.</p>
<p>Fenley's Defence.</p>
<p>I was going to my aunt's when this man laid hold of me in Nightingale-lane. He took me to the justice. The next day he went to my mother, and asked her to give him 4 s. 6 d. for the cloth. He could not swear to me before the justice. He went to my mother again to ask her for a guinea, and said, if she would not give him a guinea, he would make the witness swear, and then he swore at the justice's that I was the person. I am used to the Sea.</p>
<p>Q. to Paxton. Did you offer to take 4 s. 6 d. the morning after for your cloth?</p>
<p>Paxton. No. On Monday night I could not see what colour his face was. The justice asked if I could swear to him. I said, no. He said he would remand him back to prison. On the Friday morning his face was clean, and as soon as I saw him, I knew he was the man.</p>
<p>Q. Did you offer to take a guinea, half-guinea, or any money, to make it up?</p>
<p>Paxton. No; they offered to give me something. I said, if they would go to Justice Sherwood, and he would discharge them on that account, he might.</p>

<p>I had been to a gentleman's house; I was coming home; I saw this handkerchief lay, one end of it on a shutter-place, the other on the ground; I pick'd it up, and went to a fishmonger's stall. This gentleman laid hold of me before I could say any thing. I am fourteen years old. I put it in my breeches because I had no pocket.</p>

I was determined to watch who stole it. I watched several nights. In the night between the 2d and 3d of December I heard a noise on the tops of the house; at last I heard a piece of lead fall; then I heard another piece fall. After some time I heard the lead rattling below. Accordingly I went to the place; there I saw the prisoner with the lead upon his shoulder. On seeing me, he threw the lead down, and ran away. I pursued and took him. I examined the house where the lead fell, and it appeared that it had been cut from a house lately occupied by Mr. Peters; that was the only house of five or six that had not been plundered.</p>
<p>Q. How do you think he got up?</p>
<p>Bannister. By the wateredge of the next house.</p>
