I put the key into my door, and I found it open; it was a one-pair of stairs. I am a lodger; the landlord lives in the house; his name is Robert Archer; my brother and his wife were with me. There did not appear any violence. I said, my door is open; and directly I said so, the prisoner looked at me from behind the door in the front room. I screamed out, and ran down stairs. My brother and his wife went into the room. I went to the publick house, and the landlord came with me. I cannot say whether Keys was in the house. I locked my door safe when I went out; I did not leave any body in my apartment when I went out; I do not know that any body was in the house; I am quite certain I locked the door. The things were all in one set of drawers, which I locked; but I found them open on my return with the landlord. There did not appear to be any violence done to them; the things were all found in his pocket. The value of the goods I am not a judge of.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow, Prisoner's Counsel. There are other persons live in the house? - Yes.</p>
<p>They have keys to let themselves in? - Yes.</p>

I looked at my watch a quarter before nine on the 11th of November; I was crossing the passage from the parlour to the bedroom, I saw the prisoner coming down stairs with a bundle; he dropt it on the stairs; he said nothing to me; he came to me; he came to the bottom of the stairs, and I collared him, and cried, Brother, brother, a thief, a thief, a thief! He gave me a blow on the breast, and ran out of the house; he left the bundle behind him. My brother pursued him immediately; he was brought back in less than ten minutes. I am positive the prisoner is the person who ran out of the house. The street-door is always open on account of the shop; he ran out at that door; the parlour door was open, and I had a candle in my hand, so that there was light both ways. The prisoner was taken to the watch-house; the constable has the bundle.</p>

<p>I live in Eagle-street; I am a housekeeper. On the 13th of November, about a quarter before nine, I was sitting in my parlour, I heard my sister cry out, Brother, brother, a thief! I got up, and ran out; I saw the prisoner in the passage running out; I had a very good view of him, because there is a very good light; my sister had a candle in her hand. I pursued him into Holborn; as he turned the corner of Dean-street I lost sight of him; that may be 20 yards. Mr. Walker stopped him in Holborn. I went up to them. The prisoner is the man that I saw run out of the house. When he was brought back, he said, he was not the man. He was taken to the watch-house.</p>
<p>- WALKER sworn.</p>
<p>I heard the alarm before he ran out about a quarter of a minute; the man that came out of the house came out stumbling; he ran past me; I endeavoured to lay hold of him, but I missed him the first time; I then followed him down Dean street about threescore yards; I seized him in Holborn by the skirt of his coat; he struck back at me; I caught his arm, and held him by that arm and his collar; he swore at me, and asked what I wanted; I told him, I did not want him, it was those who called after him that wanted him. Mr. Cutt then came up; he was secured, and brought back. I never was three yards from him.</p>

I had eighteen guineas and a half in gold, three pocket pieces I bought in London resembling half guineas, and about thirteen shillings in money, the money was in a tin box. We were drinking together at the Salutation; I went down the town, and got some victuals, and saw the prisoner at the Running Horse, and asked him to drink a glass; I sat there some time; the prisoner was in company, and he took hold of me by the shoulder, and said, Come, shipmate, go with me, I will provide you a good lodging; I did not look at first; he made a stop at once. I asked him where he was going; he took me up a very narrow passage, gave me a sudden jerk all of a sudden on the shoulder, and took my tin box and money out of my pocket. He went away all at once. I went to the next house, and told them, and that he had only left me one copper. They searched my pockets, and sent for a constable. I staid there all night; it was a lodging-house; none of the people are here. The next morning I went to the Running Horses, and told the landlord, and seized the prisoner, who stood by the fire. He took out half a guinea for change; he swore many heavy oaths, and pulled out two more; they were my property: I gave a penny a piece for them; they were half-guinea pieces resembling half-guineas; one of them was found in the ashes. I understood the tin box was picked up by a schoolboy, who is here.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179112070008"/>Mr. Garrow, Prisoner's Counsel. Was the Salutation the first house you drank at? - Yes.</p>
<p>How long had you been there? - Near an hour.</p>
<p>What liquor did you drink? - Part of two pints of beer between me and two more.</p>
<p>How long did you stay at the Running Horses? - The space of an hour.</p>
<p>You drank there too? - Yes.</p>
<p>Do you recollect fighting any body in the street after you went out of the Running Horses? - No.</p>
<p>Was you so sober as to recollect all that happened to you? - Yes; I was not paid off when the ship was paid.</p>
<p>Had you been at the Bull public-house that night? - At the Bull, Sir.</p>
<p>Aye, recollect yourself; and recollect, there is less offence in a sailor's getting drunk after a long voyage than in swearing against a man? - I was in the Bull.</p>
<p>And there you invited a young woman to pass the night with you? - I was in no woman's company any further than this, I saw a woman in a black gown; she asked me what countryman I was; I told her, I was of the West of England, and I asked her for a cook's shop; I went into the cook's shop, and asked her to sit down; she did not come in then, she returned again in five minutes; she came up through the street with me again; I went along with her to the Salutation, then the landlord asked her what she did there.</p>
<p>She was a common woman? - I never saw her before; he asked her what she did there? she said, she came to drink a glass of something with me. He said, he would as soon see her backside as see her face; and I never saw the woman afterwards.</p>
<p>Do you mean to swear that after that you was not at the Bull with this young woman? - Yes, Sir.</p>
<p>Why, you was not so ungallant surely as an English sailor to let her go out of the house by herself? - I never saw her afterwards; I was at the Bull before I went to the eating-house.</p>
<p>What became of you after you had lost this woman, that would not have been a pleasant circumstance, you know? I went back again to the Running Horses after that.</p>
<p>How long did you continue drinking there? You drank at the Salutation, then you got to the Running Horses, then to the eating-house, then to the Salutation again, and then to the Running Horses again; at all of which you took a little drop of a nip? - I staid at the Running Horses about half an hour after eight, and had two pints of slip; I did not drink it all myself; there was four or five of us.</p>
<p>How far off did you pass your night from these running horses? - I cannot say.</p>
<p>You do not recollect fighting with any body? - No, Sir.</p>
<p>No man in a sailor's dress? - No.</p>
<p>Now, after all this drinking, do you really think you was any thing like sober? - I was sober and sensible to know what I said and did.</p>

<p>I keep the Running Horses at Brentford. I remember the prosecutor coming in; it was between eight and nine when he came in; he was not more than an hour; the prisoner was there some of the time. Bryant paid for three pints of liquor, that was all he had; they went out together. I saw a tin box in the prosecutor's hand, but what he had in it I cannot tell; nobody else went out with the prosecutor. He came in next morning, and the prisoner was there; he said, he had lost his money. I cannot tell what passed; but soon after the prisoner went out, and brought a piece of money to pay for what he had. The prosecutor did not stop him then. The prisoner's master is a pipe-maker. He produced me half a guinea to take my reckoning; I told him it was a counterfeit; he desired I would weigh it, and it was so; the prisoner said, it was his money. The sailor charged him in custody.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow. Did you observe whether he was a little in liquor? - I did not observe; they went out to get a lodging.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179112070009"/>How long has the prisoner lived in your neighbourhood? - About six months; he frequented our house, and came there that morning, as he had been accustomed to do; he went out, and came in again some time after with this piece of money.</p>
<p>He might have put it all into the pipe-furnace if he had been conscious of any thing of the sort?</p>
<p>Court. Could the sailor have had a lodging in your house? - Sometimes we do let a lodging; my husband offered him half a bed.</p>

<p>Mr. Garrow. The prisoner applied to you for one of these very half-guineas? - Yes; he came to me for one of the half-guineas to go back and treat Bryan at that very publick house. He has worked for me about seven months; I never saw any dishonesty by him; he bore the character of an honest man; I never missed or found any thing lost.</p>
<p>Mr. Garrow to Violet. This man had worked next door to you for some months, what character did he bear? - I have nothing to say against him; I never heard any thing to the contrary of an honest man.</p>
<p>Did Clamtree come in there? - Yes, some time after Bryan and the prisoner had left our house; they went out very good friends; he was to shew him a lodging. I saw him afterwards give Clamtree two of the small pieces; I did not see him give the other two.</p>

I paid for the first pint; I told him not to call for any more; I had no more money; he said, it did not matter, he had plenty of money, and he said, he had saved up 3 l. for the Christmas holidays, which he had in a pipe-clay box; and soon after that, I think it might be in the space of a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes, in came the prosecutor, and declared he had been robbed of all his property, which was 18 guineas and a half, and some odd money; what, I cannot justly say; and that the prisoner was the man that robbed him, and he would have a constable. Soon after that the prisoner beckoned me into the back parlour, and I went, and he put his hand into the sob of his trowsers, and pulled out a guinea, and two half guineas, as they appeared to me, but whether they were half guineas or counterfeits I could not tell; he offered me the two half guineas, as they appeared, to take them and keep them, and say nothing about it; I did not take them; I went and told my master, who was in the publick house, and the landlord; and before they could get a constable they were demolished some how or other; they could could not be found.

<p>I am a furrier: on the 5th of November I was called down stairs, and found fifty-two skins offering for sale by the prisoner; he had sold my servant some in the morning of this day; I asked him where he got them; he said he bred them, that he kept a large number of rabbits; I told him he dried them very nice; he said yes, he hung them up by the nose to dry in the cellar; I then told him that would not do, for that they were foreign skins; I threatened to send him to the compter; and he then said, that a man had given them to him to sell; I told him to send for the man; he said he did not know where to send for the man, as he had never seen him before: he came to me about seven o'clock in the evening.</p>

My reason for being particular about the time of his going, was, having a gentleman to go out about the same time, an old customer; it was half past four, or a little after.</p>

I said, in an hour; he asked me if I should ride that horse he brought in? I said, no, I had a hack of my own; I made it eleven o'clock before I came home; and not expecting to see him that night, as I could not see the aforesaid Mr. Wise; and he was waiting under the window of my bed-chamber, behind a pheaton; he said I had kept him waiting a long while; I said I was sorry for it; he asked me if I had succeeded? and I told him no; he pressed me very hard again, and said he did not know what to do for money; I then told him I would endeavour to get him another guinea; I went to Mrs. Blick, who keeps the Bull and Gate, and borrowed the second guinea; but in the mean time he left this letter; I have seen him write, and am certain this is his hand-writing; Mr. Hopkins gave me the letter the next morning; I gave him the second guinea; he then asked me where he should settle the business; the time was fixed on the next evening at five; I was to give him eight guineas for the horse for myself; at five he came; I told him I would settle in half an hour; he came, and I asked him to go to the public-house, as there were some gentlemen in the compting-house: Wise was there, and said how do you do, Mr. Bean? this convinced me he had done wrong, as he entered his name Robins, and gave me that name always; he called Mr. Wise out of the public house, and they went out together; I kept close to him; he kept drawing out of the yard, as it were, a little at a time; and I said, Mr. Robins, I must know how you came by this horse? I rather suspect you; he then said it belonged to some foreign gentleman, whose name he mentioned, but I do not recollect, who is gone abroad; and I asked him if he knew any body that did know the horse? he made no other answer, but that the gentleman was gone to France; then I asked him for his address? he pulled a pencil and a bit of paper out of his pocket, and wrote No. 4, or some other number, in St. Martin's-le-grand; I told him that was not a plain direction for me; if he would go into the compting-house, and write it with pen and ink, I would endeavour to be convinced if it was right; he then said he had a lady waiting for him at the gateway end; that he would go and speak to her, and return immediately; I then told him I should be plain with him; I would not let him go from me; he then went with me into the compting-house, and owned his address was fictitious; I then told him I would hesitate no longer, but he should give a satisfactory account at Bow-street; he told me he thought it might be settled without going there; if he repaid me the two guineas, would I be then satisfied; I then told him it was a serious business, and ought to be brought to light; and nothing but going to Bow-street would satisfy me; I sent for a coach, and took him there; going along, he pressed me very hard to settle it; hoped I would take it into consideration, and not be the ruin of a young man; I told him it was not my intention to injure him, only to have a satisfactory account to the justice; for had I not taken him, it might have been a serious thing to myself: before the justice, he owned the horse belonged to Mr. Taylor, of Chiswell-street: Mott came and saw the horse; it was the same horse; the letter I received on the 23d, about ten o'clock; it was left the 22d.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Mr. Humphries, what sort of a stable-yard is this of Mr. Hopkins's? - It is a place for sale and a livery-yard.</p>
<p>It is a repository, is not it? - By private contract; we do not sell by public auction, nor have not done for these four years.</p>
<p>The custom then of the repository is, to take in horses from any body that comes, without enquiring any thing at all about
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179112070019"/>them? - Not with us; we always take the address.</p>
<p>What capacity might you be in? - Foreman to the salesman, about twelve years.</p>
<p>Anything you did in the yard, was on Mr. Hopkins's account? - No doubt of it.</p>
<p>How long have you known the prisoner? - From the 10th of November; I saw him again the 19th, by bringing a horse of Mr. Jocelyn's of London-wall.</p>
<p>On the 19th of November, there was some conversation about a horse, which horse was not owned till Monday last, after the prisoner was apprehended? - He brought no horse before the 22d.</p>
<p>Was not there a horse that he was charged with before the magistrate? - Yes.</p>
<p>What became of that charge? - I cannot say.</p>
<p>Do not you know it was discharged? - I do not; Mr. Jocelyn did swear to his horse; and on Monday last he was to have done something in the business.</p>
<p>What passed between you and the prisoner on that other warrant? - I bought that horse and had a receipt for it.</p>
<p>Let us look at the receipt; (produces it); I see by this receipt you gave him seven guineas? - I did.</p>
<p>I see it is received of Mr. Humphries, seven guineas for a black gelding? - This was in my own name: but it never was unknown to Mr. Hopkins; we never hinder any body bringing horses to us for sale, especially if we have any suspicion; I certainly had suspicions, or would not let him have had one guinea; I made no enquiries, because I thought he would come again; the first enquiry I made, was of Mr. Wise; and if he had come to me for fifty shillings, without a horse, I should have let him have it on his name. Mr. Wise did come; the prisoner and he were acquainted.</p>
<p>When he first brought the horse, what did he particularly say? - He brought a black horse, and said this is the black horse I told you of; and that that was one of the pair that he drove in his curricle; I then asked him whether it was a sound one or not; he said, yes; there was nothing ailed him, only a little hair was rubbed off the side with the harness, which he pointed to me, but I did not see it; and he compared it with the other horse, and I then thought they were a pair.</p>
<p>Did he tell you when he left them, that he left them for sale? - No doubt of it; for sale for eight guineas.</p>
<p>Did not the prisoner say that he would not sell him, but would pay for his keep; did not he tell you that he would not sell him, but would pay for his keep? - I did not hear any such thing mentioned; he said he was distressed or would not sell it.</p>
<p>Did you take notice of this last horse? - Yes, I believe it was an intire black one, only a single star in the forehead; it was not material for me to take particular notice.</p>
<p>You have been used to a great many horses, and have seen a great many? - Yes.</p>
<p>Of course you know that a white leg before or behind is a particular mark? - When people take particular notice of it it is, there is no doubt of it.</p>
<p>How long had you the horse in your custody? - Six nights.</p>
<p>Of course you had an opportunity of seeing him many times? - I had and I had not; he was put by in a corner stall till an owner came; I saw him stand in the stable, and went to see whether the horse was fed.</p>

With respect to the horse being booked for sale, Mr. Humphries has an undoubted right to write what he pleases in his own book: it was never my intention to sell him, nor to leave him as a pledge: the second time I called, I wrote that night requesting him to lend me eight guineas: I never conceived it to be lent on the horse; and I am sure Mr. Humphries does not: I am sure he cannot; I called again after I had left the note, and Mr. Humphries was not at home: but he presently after came home, and I then asked him to oblige me with the money? he said, no, he had been disappointed: he had been after a Mr. Allingham, a sheriff's officer, to arrest a Mr.

<p>On the 14th of November, about six o'clock, I called at the George in Piccadilly; the boy said, your father is in the parlour; going into the parlour, I saw Mr. James coming out; I said, how do you do, Mr. James? he said, are not you Mr. Barnes's son? I said, yes; I called him on one side, and asked him to lend me a shilling or two; upon this he put his hand into his pocket, pulled out his money, and gave me half a guinea and four shillings; I said, I do not want so much; he said, poh, poh, keep it; I am going to receive a sum of money of your father; nothing more occurred for two hours; Mr. James came out of the parlour again, and was going into the street into the coach; he was put into the coach, and the coachman asked him where he was to drive him to? he was so drunk he could not tell him; I said, he lives on the other side of Black-friar's-bridge; my father was in liquor, and could not tell the coachman where to drive Mr. James to; the man that keeps the public-house, said to me, Ned, get upon the coach-box, and see him home; I said, I do not rightly know where he lives; I got upon the coach-box, along with the coachman, about one hundred yards; Mr. James called me then, and said, Barnes, come in the coach, it rains; I told the coachman not to mind him; he then called out, God damn you, stop; the coachman got down, and let him out; he made me get in before him; we went to the sign of the Sun, near St. Clement's; there we both got out; as soon as I got into the house, he, without any provocation, struck me in the mouth, and knocked out one of my teeth; I struck him on the nose, and he fell behind the grate; the coachman asked what all that was about, and asked for his fare, which was seven or eight shillings; he refused to pay it, and said he did not hire the coach; then we shook hands; but afterwards the coachman and I gave charge of him for assaulting us; they took me down a court to the watch-house; they put me up stairs; I had a bed, for which I paid a shilling; Mr. James was brought in soon after; and he had a bed in the next room; he broke the pannel of the door, and I crept under the bed for fear, as he said he would be the death of me.</p>

<p>I am servant to Mr. Merrick. The lead was missed from the shop in Grosvenor Mews; I lived there. On the 13th of November, about a quarter past twelve at night, I was called up by the lodger, who said there were people stealing lead; I went on the top of the house, and missed the lead from off the sky-light; I went to the swatch-man; I did not hear any noise myself; I suspected the lead was put into the adjoining house; when I was getting upon the tiles, there was a little fresh dirt; from the sky-light to the next house, is about twelve feet; there is a fixed ladder to the trap-door, and the trap-door was standing wide open; I went down the ladder, and knocked at the door of the prisoner; it was some time before he answered, or before they opened the door; the father of the prisoner wanted to know who was at the door? the watchman told him there was some lead missing; the father opened the door, and said, there was no lead there to his knowledge; the watchman went in, and I stood at the door; the lead was found in a room where the prisoner slept; there are three apartments; the father has two, and the prisoner one; the prisoner was in the room where the lead was found; there was nothing found in the first or second room; the lead was found on entering the door; the watchman found it first; the prisoner was in bed; I had not seen him during our search before; the prisoner said, good God! how did the lead come here; the prisoner had only his coat off; then we took the prisoner to the watch-house, and his father and brother; I went directly, and called my master.</p>
<p>Prisoner to Smith. Which room did he search first? - The father's, which was the first we came to.</p>

<p>My lord, I was calling the hour, half past twelve, in New Bond-street: I heard the sound of a rattle, and ran to my partner's assistance: that is Mr. Gent: I went up to the place where the father's apartments were, and found Mr. Smith and Gent on the outside of the door: there was no fastening to hinder my getting in: the father came to the door, and the watchman
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="179112070032"/>told him he had suspicion there was some lead in the apartment; the watchman said, if you know yourself to be honest and clear, open the door: he said, by all means: nothing was found there: I went afterwards to the room where the prisoner was: I do not think it was fastened: he opened the door: he said to me, you are welcome to search any where: just as I came up to the door, I saw him covering something with a rug: I went and took the rug off, and threw it on the foot of his bed: a parcel of lead lay in a wine-basket: I said to my comrades, you need not look any farther; here is the lead: I took it out of the basket, and laid it down on the floor: I asked him how the lead came there? he seemed to hem and hah: he said a man brought it to the step of the door about half an hour before, and asked him to keep it till Monday morning: he was then asked how he could think of taking such a thing into his apartment? he said he did it out of good nature to the man: then we took them all three to the watch-house: I have had the lead ever since: it was before the magistrate: (produces it): he had his coat off, and I think, his stockings and shoes.</p>
<p>Smith. I tried the lead to the sky-light: this is the lead last lost: I nailed it on myself: the heads of the old nails were decayed. (Produces three nails.) I made these nails myself.</p>
<p>Jury. I think you said there was one nail left in the wood? - There was.</p>
<p>PRISONER's DEFENCE.</p>
<p>I was coming home late on Saturday night: I met a helper on the stair-case, who asked for a coachman? I told him he was not there: then he asked me to let him leave that bundle till Monday? I said, yes, and welcome: he put down the bundle, and I went into the next room to get a tinder box: I had no sooner struck a light, than five or six people came in.</p>
<p>Court to Smith. When had you last seen this lead safe? - The same afternoon, about three o'clock: I made a point of seeing the place every day.</p>
<p>(The prisoner called four witnesses, who gave him a good character.)</p>
