He came on Thursday the 28th of January, about seven in the evening, and asked to borrow half a guinea on it. I asked him who it belonged to, as I did not think it was his own, he seemed staggered at the question; then he said it was the maid servant's in the house where he lived, and that she had sent it to pawn.</p>
<p>Did he tell you where he lived? - Yes. I asked if I should send to the house; he said he did not choose it. I took him to his mistress's door; he then said his mistress came late from the masquerade, and lost it, and he found it in the kennel all over mud. I then suspected the maid was concerned, and took him back to my own house, and sent for a constable, and took him before the justice, and he then said he found it in the kennel. I applied to his mistress that evening, and she said she had lost it, but did not know by whom it was stolen.</p>

On the 21st of January last I bought two dozen of stockings of Mr. Waller, in the Strand, they were carried by Mr. Waller's servant to my house in Wigmore-street. Having business in the city, I went forward, and these stockings were stolen before I got home.</p>
<p>Did you make such remarks on them as to know them again? - I know them again very well, I took particular notice of the make and the size. When I came home my servant informed me she had received them into the shop; I saw no more of them till the next day, when I was sent for to Justice Welch's office; they found me out by means of the name of the person I bought them of being written on the wrapper in which they were. I went to the office and saw the stockings, and knew them again. They sent first to Mr. Waller, and one of his apprentices came up to the office and informed them that he had carried them to my house the night before. I bought 24 pair, there were but 22 pair at the office; there had been a pair taken out of each parcel; Justice Cox sealed them up with the office seal, and delivered them to the person who took the prisoners.</p>

<p>I am one of the patrol in the parish of Bloomsbury. I have 22 pair of stockings; they were sealed up at the office. There had been a burglary committed in the house of Mr. Butcher, in Bloomsbury, I had a suspicion of the prisoner, Dempsey; I went to search his lodging, in the house of a Mr. James, in Dyot-street, between twelve and one in the night; I found all the prisoners in bed, and found the two parcels of stockings in a box under the bed they were in; they said they knew not how the stockings
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177902170006"/> came there; that they were none of their's. When I took them to the magistrate, we found there was a direction on one of the wrappers to the person where the gentleman bought these stockings; the magistrate sent according to the direction, and a gentleman came and said they had been sold to the prosecutor the day before. I went to Mr. Sudlow's, and asked him if he had lost any stockings; he said he had lost two dozen. When he came to the office and saw the stockings, he said, they were the stockings he had bought the day before.</p>
<p>When you came into this room on another business, on a burglary having been committed in Bloomsbury, and found the prisoners all in bed, did you tell them what you came about? - No; I told Mr. James I wanted to see Dempsey, and Dempsey opened the door.</p>
<p>Did they appear to be under any apprehensions, or uneasy at your coming? - Yes, they did, I told them they must get up and go along with me.</p>
<p>Dempsey. After he came in I went out to make water, and came in again; if I had known myself guilty I would not have come in again?</p>
<p>Atwood. He only went into the shop to make water; the room is on the ground floor. I saw these things under the bed, and followed him and secured him. The shop door was shut, he could not get away; the others were in bed. I ordered them to get up and took them to the watch-house. On the bed I found this black mask (producing it.)</p>

<p>I live at Mr. Sudlow's, who is a hosier and hatter; I serve in the shop when he is out.</p>
<p>Do you remember any stockings being brought to the shop while he was out? - Yes; on Thursday the 21st of January, between four and five in the afternoon, two dozen of stockings were brought; I put them at the end of the compter; about half an hour after that they were stolen.</p>
<p>Was you in the shop? - No; I was in the parlour. I had just lit candles in the shop, and went into the parlour, and set a candle on the bureau; I saw the shop door open and a young man came in.</p>
<p>Was there only one? - Only one.</p>
<p>What size was the young man that came in? - He was quite a youth; he held up his head as he came in at the door. Woolley was the person; he took the stockings.</p>
<p>Had you ever seen either of the prisoners before this time? - Never.</p>
<p>You did not know any thing of them? - No.</p>
<p>How long might this matter be transacting between his opening the door and taking the stockings? - He was not a minute taking the stockings.</p>
<p>You never saw him but that minute? - No.</p>
<p>Can you positively swear from seeing him one minute that that person was the prisoner? - Yes.</p>
<p>What distance is it from the shop door to the parlour? - About four yards and a half; he had taken up the stockings before I came out of the parlour.</p>
<p>When you came out of the door and cryed out stop thief! were there any other persons in his company! - Another young man stood at the corner of the shop window; he ran off; Woolley was running when I went to the door; the other seemed to laugh; when I got to the door I cried stop thief! and then they ran.</p>
<p>Did you make any observation upon that lad to know him again? - Yes; that is the young man in the blue clothes (Dempsey.)</p>
<p>When did you see him afterwards? - At the office.</p>
<p>DEMPSEY's DEFENCE.</p>
<p>I was employed in turning a wheel for twopence an hour at that time at Mr. Fox's. The room that I lodged in I was to pay twopence a night for, to Mr. James. I came in between eight and nine, and went to bed; this young man was asleep at the time; the key hung up a usual on the outside, in the passage. Between ten and eleven the woman waked me, and asked me to let a young man lie
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177902170007"/> with me, as he was destitute of a lodging; I said, three were too many in a bed, but however he came in. When Mr. Atwood came and knocked at the door; I let him in; he pulled these things out from under the bed; I told him I knew nothing of it; it is a common lodging house, the same as another twopenny lodging house. I never examined what was in the room. I used to go in and outin the morning; I never looked under the bed.</p>

<p>Do you know any thing of the prisoner? - Yes; more than I desire to know. She came into our house on Friday last under a pretence of asking for her namesake; she said I was her namesake, that her name was Williams. I said my name was Williamson. She sat down; she said her husband was a Scotchman, and that she much loved the Scotch; and asked me to get a quartern of gin; I said I did not use that sort of liquor. I went and got a pennyworth of gin. I had a newspaper in my hand; she said she had found a purse with bank notes and money in it to the value of three hundred pounds, and asked me if it was advertised; she then asked me to come and dine with her on the Sabbath-day; which I did not agree to. When she was gone, I missed the cloak; there was nobody in the house besides her, my wife, and myself. On the Saturday following my wife went to the Brown Bear, in Rosemary-lane, and saw the prisoner. My wife sent for me.</p>
<p>Did you find the cloak? - We found it where she had sold it.</p>
<p>Did she tell you where she had sold it? - No, another woman told me; I went to the person, who said he had bought such a cloak.</p>

On the 8th of February I lost three pigs; there were two found on the prisoner at the Three Tons in Turnmill-street in a bag; I saw them afterwards in the house of Mr. Isaacs the constable; I knew one of them by a piece being cut off the tail; there was no mark in particular on the other, therefore I cannot positively say that was mine.</p>

<p>I am a constable; I apprehended the prisoner on the 8th of February; I went into the Three Tons to call for a pennyworth of purl, and saw him with a bag with two pigs in it in his hand; he was offering them to sale; he asked three shillings a piece for them. I asked him how he came by them; he said what was that to me; I said I believed he had stolen them, and would take him to a magistrate to see how he came by them. I took him to the magistrate; there he said first that he bought them; then he said he found them in the bag; they were warm. When I took him I found a knife upon him which I suppose he had stuck them with for there was blood upon it, and his hands were bloody; the pigs had not been long killed. I enquired about the neighbourhood, and was told they were Mr. Dunn's property; and he swore to them before the magistrate.</p>
<p>Jury. What colour were the pigs? - Both white about five weeks old.</p>

<p>Last Monday was a week, as I was going by Charter-house wall, I saw a man with a bag across his shoulder; he asked me to buy two pigs; he asked nine shillings for them; I said I would give him six; he would not take it; he allowed them me for seven shillings and sixpence. I took them; I went into a publick-house for a pennyworth of purl; I put the bag down and went out to make water; when I came in Isaacs had hold of the bag, he might have changed the pigs for any thing I know; they are not the prosecutor's property; he keeps pigs for other people he has none of his own.</p>
<p>To the Prosecutor. Do you keep pigs for other people? - No.</p>

The day I missed it, the boy came to bring an apron to a girl in the house; I asked him if he had heard of my misfortune, and told him I had lost the watch; he said no.

<p>I came out on Sunday evening, and went to Mr. Gabriel's house. He asked me if I wanted to buy a gown; I said I would have it, if it was not dear; he said it was a gown and coat, and they must go together; he said he gave 18 s. for it, and I should have it for 18 s. again. I took it on his word; I gave his wife a guinea, and she gave me three shillings change. I sent for the mantua-maker, and gave it directly to her. Mr. Fasey's apprentice went to the mantua-maker's, and saw the gown, and asked her how she came by it. The mantua-maker brought it to Mr. Fasey's house, and the washerwoman got it. I was there, and saw it brought; there was an apron.</p>

<p>I am the patrol. On the first of February between seven and eight at night, I took the prisoner about a hundred yards from his master's house; he had twelve pounds of iron, part of it in his apron, and part in his pocket; I suspected him, and asked him whose iron it was; he said it was his own property; I asked him where he was going; he said to his master's at Cow-cross; then he said he worked for Mr. Russell, in Coleman-street; I went there with him, and found he did not; Mr. Russell advised me to take him to Mr. Whitehead's. He was not willing to go there. I took him to Mr. Whitehead's, and the iron was delivered to Mr. Sedgwick.</p>

About the 13th of December last, I was looking over a bill of sundry expences that were incurred at that office in Pall-Mall, and seeing two dozen of candles every other day charged, when I knew they did not burn three pound a day, I imagined there must be some bad tricks played, either that they had not been laid in, or that they must have been carried off; they were both for candles and oil; I was determined that evening to find out how it was. I went to Mr. Jarvis, a tallow chandler in Pall-Mall, showed him my bill; these bills were delivered to me by a principal clerk of mine his name is

<p>Court. Had it been the practice to pay ready money for the goods you had of Jarvis? - Yes; there was no account subsisting between us.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="177902170027"/> receipts of the tradesmen, which he produced to me afterwards. I told him for those receipts I had given the prisoner the money to pay; I always gave him gold to bring me change, because I would have silver. Mr. Jenkinson asked me whether those bills were paid. I told him they were by the boy. He afterwards said that for those bills no such money had been paid. He had enquired something of the tradesmen and had found the sum of money charged in the bills had not been paid. Mr. Jenkinson has got the receipts, I believe.</p>
<p>Court. Have you got these receipts?</p>
<p>Jenkinson. No; I had them in court last sessions. The boy was then to have been tried. I think I remember taking them home safe, and putting them into the top of a writing desk. I looked for them this morning, and they were gone.</p>
<p>Court. Unless you produce them, and they are compared with the record, and found to be exact with that, the prisoner cannot be convicted.</p>
<p>Jenkinson. I searched for them this morning, and could not find them.</p>
<p>Court. I suppose this was intended. You did not bring the receipts I suppose by design? - I had them in court last sessions, when he was to have been tried, but since that I have lost them.</p>
<p>Court. But you must know these receipts were material to have been produced in evidence; and, therefore, you ought to have been as careful of them as of Bank notes. - I did take care of them, and put them in a drawer. I never looked for them since till this morning, when I could not find them.</p>
<p>Court. Gentlemen of the jury, you must acquit the prisoner.</p>
