<p>JOHN NEWMAN sworn. - Examined by Mr. Knapp. I am a cabinet-maker in Catherine-street: On Monday, the 22d of September, in the afternoon, the prisoner and another man came to me, and asked me if I would purchase a plank of mahogany; I asked him the size of it; he said it was seven feet long, two and a half thick, and sixteen or eighteen inches broad; I said, if you will bring it, and I approve of it, I will give you a fair price; they then went away, and returned in about half an hour; I went out, and when I returned, I found the prisoner and the other man in the shop, and two pieces of mahogany standing there; why, says I, you have got two, instead of one; I observed that they had been cut asunder.</p>

<p>Q. You cannot say where you put it when you went to bed? - A. No; I missed my pocket-book out of my jacket.</p>
<p>Q. When can you speak to having had it before that? - A. I am sure I had it at six o'clock at the Black-dog; I lost a twenty pound, and a five pound note, and six half joes; in about half an hour after I awoke, the prisoner, Blake, came to bed to me; I mentioned nothing to her about it till day-light; when it was day-light, I got up and began to put my cloths on, she was in bed at that time; I asked her to get up, which she did immediately; I then asked her if she had seen any thing of my pocket-book; she said, she had not, but told me, that I put my cloths under the bed, when I went to bed; I happened to cast my eye under the bed, and saw the pocket-book lying open, about three feet from where the cloaths lay; I took the book up, and I looked into it, I missed a twenty pound and a five pound note; there were three five pound notes, and a one half joe left; I did not say any thing at that time, I was rather ashamed of myself; then we both went out, and had some purl and gin; I then went in search of my fellow-lodger; I found him in bed with another girl, I told him to get up, and we went home to our lodgings.</p>
<p>Q. You had not then mentioned any thing to her about it? - A. I had told her I missed my money, but did not say how much, and when she saw that half joe, she said, lord, here is your money, you cannot have lost any; after we had been in our lodging sometime, I got some intelligence from Maria Hill, and I saw five half joes found, that were hid in the garden of Berry's house; Treadway was with me, and Mumford, and about five o'clock we took

<p>Q. Which of them did that? - A. It was the elder Williams, that was the active hero, he took my watch; he then said, I require your pocket-book, sir; I told them I had no pocket-book; they searched me, but not finding a pocket-book, they took from my waistcoat pocket, a pair of spectacles, in a case, which I now hold in my hand, then they let me go; my horse's head being pointed to Highgate, and they going the reverse way, towards London; but before they had got twenty yards from me, they broke into the fields, on that side of the lane, which adjoins to Holloway; immediately as I observed this, before I had time to run round,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180010290008"/>a gentleman's servant came riding as hard as he could ride; with some difficulty I stopped him, he agreed to assist me, and we leaped our horses over into the fields where they were; I pointed out to him the two men a little before us; I then began to holloa after them as footpads, crying stop thief; upon hearing my voice, they turned round with their faces, and began to run; the young man on horseback and I, pursued them, but we did not get quite up to them till they got over the hedge of the next field; in the next field I got up to them, and got rather before them with my horse; I told them they had robbed me, and I would take them; they drew their pistols, and pointed them at me, and bid me keep off, or they would shoot me; I told them, I did not regard their threats, they might depend upon it I never would leave them till I had taken them, they then holding their pistols to me, and the young man, with me, broke away into an adjoining field,still we followed; then they run and got into the third field, and there we got the assistance of some men that were making of hay; we kept on pursuing them, and in the third field, at the end of it, they were pressed so close, that they fired a pistol, I was a very little way off, and they were in the hedge, but which fired it I do not know; after this pistol was fired, I saw clearly that they were desperate men, and that there would be no taking them without some fire-arms; I desired the people round to go to Holloway, or some place near, and get some fire-arms, some of the men that had come up to us, and we kept them at bay for some time, backwards and forwards, and in different parts of the field, and as frequently as I pressed upon them, they levelled their pistols at me; they then crossed the lane into the fields, leading to Kentish-town; at last there appeared a man at the top of the hill, with a gun; I cried out loudly, here is a gun, give it me, and I will blow their heads off; upon their feeling the gun, they laid down three pistols, and surrendered themselves; I had them tied together with a handkerchief, and they were searched by the people that got about me, but no part of my property was found upon them; I then took them to Bow-street early the next morning; I got up and went to the fields where this bustle had happened, a boy had picked up the spectacles and case, which I received from the boy's father, his name is Thomas Watson.</p>
<p>Q. Are those the spectacles of which you were robbed? - A. They are positively the spectacles, I have had them many years.</p>
<p>Q. Are you positively sure that the two men who robbed you, were the same that you afterwards found in the fields? - A. I am very positive that they are the same men; I never lost sight of them, but while they were getting from one field to another.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. There were several persons collected? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How long a space of time do you think might elapse before you saw the servant? - A. I can scarcely think it was one minute.</p>
<p>Q. How far is the field where you took them, from where you were robbed? - A. I should suppose the fifth field.</p>
<p>Q. There are hedges which divide each field? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. The persons who committed the robbery had got over one hedge before you began to pursue? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. There were five hedges-do you mean to say that you always had a constant view of the prisoners? - A. Allowing for the time of getting over the hedges.</p>
<p>Q. None of your property was found upon them? - A. No.</p>

<p> Mr. Hodgson. He is certainly right in correcting that they had two brace of pistols. White. They asked me if they had hurt me; I told them, no, they had not; I said, I know that very well, but you have robbed that gentleman of his watch and money; they told me; if I did not leave them, they would shoot me; I told them, they might depend upon it I would follow them; if they did shoot me, they could not shoot that gentleman; in going over the third field hedge, one of them fired a pistol, but which way the pistol was directed. I cannot say, for I was paying attention to my horse to leap the hedge; in the next field there were some farmering men came up and surrounded them; they threatened, that the first man that touched them they would shoot him; they swore they would not suffer themselves to be taken; they got out of that field into another, they were crossing a little narrow lane, upon which one of

<p>Q. Are you sure that the men that you pursued till they surrendered themselves, were the same that Mr.Hodgson first pointed out to you? - A. I am sure of it.</p>

<p>Q. Were they such as you would take for the current coin of this realm? - A. No.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180010290012"/>(John Armstrong produced the paper of counterfeit money).</p>
<p>Q.(To Lillywhite.) Look at that paper; what are the number of sixpences which appear to be of the current coin of this realm? - A. Twenty-five; the other sixpence is a bad French one; and here are four shillings of the French coin bad, and thirteen other shillings; making seventeen in all.</p>
<p>The Court were of opinion that the indictment could not be maintained, in as much as it was necessary that the contract should be charged exactly as it was made between the parties.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any sensation at your pocket at the time you missed your handkerchief? - A. None at all, it was the running alone that caused my suspicion; I had it in my hand not two minutes before in coming down Snow-hill.</p>
<p>Q. What may the value of it be? - A. Above two shillings; it is a silk handkerchief, nearly new.(Produces it).</p>
<p>LEMAN CASEBY sworn. - On Thursday morning last, I was coming through Shoe-lane, I saw a mob surround this gentleman, and the prisoner laying upon his back, in Plumbtree-court; I asked what was the matter; and they said, this gentleman had been robbed; I immediately took the prisoner by the collar, and pulled him up; in coming down Holborn-hill, he was very obstreperous; I searched him in the Compter, and found upon him a fellowship-porter's ticket, a pocket-book containing five duplicates, and a knife.</p>

My father keeps the Crooked Billet, at Shadwell: On the 9th of October I saw the prisoner at the sign of the Captain Cook, in the parish of St. George's in the East: I saw him again the following evening at the same public-house by appointment, and he asked me if I wanted any more -</p>
<p>Q. Any more what? - A. Bad gold; I told him to go and fetch three wholes, that is, business; three halves, that is, half-business; and three small ones, which were three seven-shilling pieces; he then went into the wash-house of the public-house, and took out three guineas, three half-guineas, and three seven-shillings pieces; he told me he supposed I would take them all; I told him I could not, as I had not enough about me to buy them; I then bought two half-guineas and two seven-shilling pieces; I gave two shillings and three-pence for each of the seven-shilling pieces, and three shillings and sixpence a-piece for the half-guineas.</p>
<p>Q. Look at those pieces? - A. These are the same.</p>
<p>Q. Should you know the money again that you gave him, if you should see it? - A. I should; Rogers, the officer, was in waiting for a signal which I gave him.</p>

<p>Q. You knew him to be Mr. Dames's servant? - A. Yes; the prisoner told me he had got some hogsheads, which he had purchased at the Court end of the town; I asked him whether they were grocer's hogsheads, he answered me, yes; he asked me if I would buy them of him, if he brought them to me; I told him, yes, if they were grocer's hogsheads, I would buy them of him; I saw no more of the prisoner till the third of this month, he came to the cooperage in Cable-street, and told me he had got the four hogsheads that he had informed me of; I asked him where they were, and he told me, in Church-lane, Whitechapel, that was on the Friday; he asked me if I would let the lad go with the truck to fetch them; if they were good, I was to give him five and sixpence for each cask; the lad went with him, and brought three hogsheads on the truck, and one was rolled by another lad that we employed for carrying out casks; when they came, I thought they were not grocer's hogsheads, and I saw no more of the prisoner after; I bought them for my brother, I am in his employ.</p>
<p>Q. Did you apply to Mr. Dames? - A. I meant to go to Mr. Dames, but he came to our cooperage.</p>
<p>Q. How soon after the hogsheads were left there? - A. I believe, about an hour; Mr. Dames saw the hogsheads, and had them back the next day.</p>
<p>Q.The hogsheads that Mr. Dames had away - were they the same that you had received from the prisoner? - A. They were.</p>
<p>Q. What is the difference between a grocer's hogsheads, and your's? - A. In grocer's hogsheads, when sugar is turned out, there is some left in, but the refiners steam them, which makes them quite clean inside.</p>

<p>Q. What sort of premises are these, where this wood was kept? - A. There is a paling, but a man might reach over, and take them out; I was called up by the watchman; I went to the watch-house, and looked at the boards; the man seemed very much in liquor; they were Mr. Sherwood's; I compared two of them the next morning with the others, and the knots and grain, and every thing matched.</p>

<p>Q. You have not taken stock lately? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. And it is only by comparison that you say these boards are your master's? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. If you had seen one of these boards twenty miles off, you would not have known it was your master's? - A. Yes, if I had compared it.</p>
<p>Q. But not without comparing it? - A. No.</p>
<p>Mr. Sherwood. I have no doubt of their being my boards, from the appearance.</p>
<p>Q. Was it possible for any person to reach these boards? - A. I have tried myself to-day, and cannot do it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I had been at a benefit club at Doctor's-commons, and had had two or three pipes of tobacco, which I am not used to, and drinking beer and punch, till I was so intoxicated, that I did not know where I went, or what I did, till I waked, and found myself in the watch-house in the morning.</p>
