On Thursday the 4th of August, about half after eight in the evening, Mr. Robinson and I were going from London; he was going to Chelsea, and I to Battersea: when we got to Knightsbridge, there fell a very heavy rain; there was a coach going by to Chelsea; we got into the coach, and between

I sat with my back to the horses; when both doors were opened, there was one man on my right hand, and another on my left; the man who was on my right hand, who is not here, demanded my money; and Lane, who was on my left hand, without saying a word, cut my coat, my shirt, and just the point of my elbow with a knife; we made no resistance, nor did any thing to provoke them to use us so.</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain to Lane's person?</p>
<p>Floyd. I am certain; the man on my right side clapped his hand on my breeches to feel for my watch; but having neither string nor chain he could not find it; then Lane made a stroke at me with his knife, and cut me across the wrist; my hand is spoiled for ever as to the use of it; being surprized, I asked him in a stern manner, what he was about, and told him I would give him my money if he would let me alone: the man on my right hand called out God blast him, cut away, cut his pocket out: as I was putting my hand in my pocket, Lane made a third push with his knife at my groin; the stroke took my fingers in my pocket, and prevented the knife going into my groin; there appears by my coat to have been a cut on my right side, which must have been made by the man on that side, but did not hurt me: after I had received the third cut, I took my money out of my pocket; Lane received two or three shillings, as my hand came out of my pocket, and one shilling dropped in the coach which he picked up. I had not strength to hold it. He had at least three shillings. I afterwards found half a guinea, and three shillings and sixpence sticking in the blood in my pocket. I bound my handkerchief round my arm, and bid the coachman drive on to a surgeon's. I suppose I lost near three quarts of blood. I am quite certain to the persons of both the prisoners.</p>

I had the care of the sugars on the wharf in behalf of the company; there is a foot-path in the day time; we put up hurdles in the night to obstruct the path. I heard a rustling noise among the hurdles, and soon after I saw a bag of sugar come over; I secured the prisoner who stood there. I am positive the bag that contained the sugar was thrown over by him; he threw it over the hurdles, and then came over himself.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence.</p>
<p>It is impossible for any man to distinguish in that place, to speak with certainty to it; it was my coat I threw over, not the bag.</p>

I went to the till to give change, and missed all the halfpence; soon after that, I had occasion to look into a little box which was overnight full of farthings; they were gone; it might contain I believe more than 100. I had a drawer full of halfpence in 5 s. papers to the amount of between eleven and twelve pounds, there were about twenty five shillings of them bad half-pence; they were all gone; in the evening I missed my scales and weights for weighing gold, and there was a light quarter guinea in the drawer; this was on the Friday. The prisoner lived in a yard behind my house; I had no suspicion of him. On Monday a young fellow, one Burgh, gave me information that the prisoner was in custody: I went to the compter; in my way I met Macdowgal with a bundle, he opened it, and there I saw my great coat and a silver tea spoon which we had used the night my house was broke open; I had not missed them then; this was about one o'clock; the prisoner was committed to the compter; I went there to him. I asked him who were concerned

<p>Broughton. He had got to the top of my house by means of some low buildings adjoining; he then untiled the roof, and came through the cieling; there is a door between the shop and the kitchen, which was locked, he did not break open that, but he broke a large pane of glass in the door, and so got into the shop and the kitchen: my house fronts the street, and I have a back door into the yard.</p>

The next morning my girl told me he had taken some halfpence out of his basket. I felt in the basket and found there were some papers of half-pence in it: I asked him how he came by those halfpence; he said I told you last night I had been a hopping; I earned three pound, and they paid me all in halfpence; he said he would come at twelve or three o'clock; but he never came again, and therefore I advertised it; Mr. Broughton came and described the marks.

On Monday a young man, one Bird, taxed him with breaking open Mr. Broughton's house, and he acknowledged he did.</p>
<p>Q. Did Bird give him any hint that it would be better to acknowledge it?</p>
<p>Bull. I did not hear any such thing.</p>
<p>Macdowgal.

I took him to the watch-house upon suspicion.</p>
<p>(The prosecutor deposed to the great coat, the spoon, &c. which were produced in court.</p>

Gawler was in liquor at that time, and both were pretty much irritated, and by this, time were got into a violent passion; upon this last fall in that manner, Gawler rolled himself up, drew up his legs and groaned very much; I told the prisoner he had ruined him, and after looking at him I said I believe you have killed him; Wise and I then took him up and helped him out into the street; we carried him by putting our arms under his for fifty yards. At last we could not carry him, as he could not assist himself; he fell down; he said he was a dead man; we called a coach and took him home to his wife, Gawler did put himself in a posture of fighting when the coachman first spoke to him, but I did not see him strike the prisoner; indeed I saw no blows struck on either side.</p>

I am a collar-maker in Oxford-market; I was in company at the Blue Boar with the deceased and Travis; we parted near twelve o'clock; I said it was high time to go home, and went out; I paid for one of the two pots of beer we had between us three; Gawler the deceased went up, and asked what was to pay besides; the landlord said one pot; then said he, that is no more than three halfpence a piece; just at that instant, the prisoner and his company were coming out of the back room; they bid the deceased to stand out of the way, and said something about a three halfpenny reckoning, and treated them with contempt; Gawler then asked him what he had to do with their reckoning; the prisoner then asked if he resented it; Gawler said he did, and immediately they fell together by the ears, and they both rolled together; all this happened in the compass of half a minute; they both rose and both fell a second time; the coachman was the strongest, and so had Gawler undermost; they were going to get up; my Lord's porter interfered, and would not let Travis and I part them or take them up; the coachman was getting up; when he was halfway from him he drop'd down as if on purpose, and fell with his knees upon Gawler; upon which I told him that he used the deceased very ill; Gawler, immediately upon receiving this blow upon the bottom of his belly, drew himself up, and said he was a dead man; he lay for two minutes upon the tap room boards; he could not bear to be lifted up; I imagined he was shamming, or that he was not so bad as he pretended to be; in truth he could not bear to be lifted up; they got him and set him up; he could not fit upright; when they had got him up, and kept him up for ten minutes in the room, Travis and I led him out under the arms for about thirty or forty yards; he was not able to go any further; he lay down at a gentleman's steps and vomited; then we called a coach that was going by, and put him into the bottom of the coach; the door was not shut; his feet hung out; in that manner we conveyed him to his own house; the next day he was very bad.</p>

I am porter to my Lord Chancellor; I was at the Blue Boar with the prisoner; we were coming out of the Tap Room together; there was a dispute with the deceased, Wise, and Travis about the reckoning; the coachman was in liquor, and said why do you quarrel about the reckoning? the deceased answered, what business have you to interfere, and then asked the coachman if he had any notion of himself; the coachman said he had.</p>
<p>Q. What was meant by that?</p>
<p>Wilson. I understood it as a kind of a challenge; upon this the deceased put himself in a fighting posture, and gave the prisoner a blow upon the breast; the coachman at that time had not touched him; the prisoner returned the blow and then they closed; they got up and put themselves in a fighting posture the second time; and then the deceased came with his hands across and struck the coachman the first blow, which he returned, and they closed again; and then the coachman proved the strongest, and threw the deceased on the floor; perhaps he might go against the side of a table which is there, and that might hurt him. I am not certain whether he did or not; there was a table there; when the deceased lay down in this manner, he pulled the coachman down upon him; the landlord took him off; the deceased lay upon the floor moaning; the landlord shook him and desired him to get up; as there was no answer made, at last we all contributed to help him up; he stood there about two minutes, then he walked off in company with the other two men; I did not see the second rising, and the spring that the other said they saw him make upon the deceased.</p>

I lost two shillings and three pence half-penny from a drawer in a beaufet in my parlour, between twelve at night and four in the morning; I had missed money before I put it in a drawer; I lost two shillings, then I marked nine shillings worth, and put it in the drawer. On Thursday morning, the 6th of April, the lock was hurt; I had it picked; at that time I missed the two and seven pence half penny: I had suspected the prisoner, upon that I took him up; the officer who was there searched his pockets, and found in them a picklock, and two shillings in halfpence, but the halfpence he had in his pocket were not my halfpence: but, suspecting he might have concealed them elsewhere, Mr. Williams and I went into the bake-house, and upon the side of the oven I found this two shillings and seven-pence half-penny in half-pence in the prisoner's stockings.</p>
