<p>Court. Q.Was it light or dark when you were alarmed? - A. I was rather frightened at the time, and I brought a candle down with me, but when I went to the watch-house, I found it sufficiently light to walk along; there was light enough to distinguish the features of a person's face; I probably was the last of the family up, excepting the prisoner; I cannot say whether my house was fastened over-night, but probably it was.</p>

<p>Q.Upon the 9th of February, was the prisoner at work in the top warehouse? - A. Yes, he was; he had been employed about a year and a half; I saw the prisoner, about a quarter past one o'clock, turn down one of the alloys, and take the lid off one of the tea-chests, and put his hand into it, and take tea out, and put it into something, and then put it into his breeches; I then went to Pepperal, the commodore, whom the prisoner worked under, and gave him information of what I had seen.</p>
<p>Q.After you had told Mr. Pepperal, did you go back? - A. I went back, and pointed the prisoner out to him, after shewing him the chest.</p>

<p>Q. Did you find a deficiency there? - A. Yes; I then went to the prisoner, and told him to get on with his work, and looked to see if his countenance altered; finding it did not, I called him along-side, and told him to come with me; and as we jogged on, I kept my eyes down towards his breeches; when I came to the stair-case, I put my hand to his shoulder, and begged him not to resist, and he begged for mercy; I immediately told him I could shew him none; he then put his hand to his breeches, and pulled out a bag of tea, and said, he was very sorry for what he had done; he said it was the first time, and hoped I would not take him to the accompting-house; I told him I was obliged; I took him down to the accompting-house, and I gave the tea into the charge of Mr. Brookes, the elder; I went to the chest of tea afterwards, and apparently the tea were both alike; that is all I know about it.</p>

<p>Q. What was done with the sack? - A.

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Beville. Q. At the time this passed, what was said to induce him to confess? - A. I did not hear any thing of the kind; we took him into custodody.</p>
<p>Q.Whether the tripe that you saw put into the sack came from Mellish's, or Hill's, or any where else, you cannot say? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did you examine the bag after you got to the office? - A. Yes; there was one tripe, four feet, a rule, a recd, and a bunch of lights.</p>

<p>JOSEPH LIFFORD sworn - I am in partnership with my brother, William: I had missed a quantity of new rope from my rigging-house, and Thursday, the 5th, between one and two o'clock in the morning, I went into the rope-ground, and listened if I could hear any body in the premises, and I heard some person walking in the rigging-house; I immediately went in doors to the man who had the keys of the rope-ground, I unlocked the wicket, and as soon as I went in I saw a man's coat tied up with rope in it, about thirty-five yards from the rigging-house door; I then went up the ladder into the rigging-house, with a candle and lantern, in my hand, and found the door open; as soon as I went in, I saw the prisoner lying upon some yarn, asleep; I immediately went down again, I did not wake him, and went into my yarn-house; about four o'clock the man awoke, and came very softly down the ladder; he stopped about five minutes listening if any body was about, and then he went on past where I was, very slowly, to the gate where I had seen the property; he stopped at the gate a little time, and then came back again, past where I was standing; he then went very softly again past where I was, down to the gate; I then heard a creaking, as if somebody was getting over the gate; I went down very softly, and the property was gone; I then unlocked the wicket very gently, and went out, the prisoner was standing outside the gate, with the bundle tied up at his feet; I immediately caught him by the collar, and asked him what he had got there; he said, he had only got a little rope to buy him some bread; I told him if he offered to stir I would knock him down; he rushed from me, and I stepped before him and knocked him down with a stick that I had in my hand; I made him take the rope upon his back, and I took him to the watch-house.</p>
<p>Q.Did he work for you? - A. I never saw him at work myself; but I understand from my foreman he did work two days for me two months ago; the rope that I found in the bundle was old rope, such as we used to bind new rope with; we are rope makers.(

<p>Mr. Lifford. I have no doubt of the rope being mine, but I cannot swear to it.</p>

<p>Prisoner's defence. I am a stranger here, and I did not know where to get a lodging; I had been trying to get on board a vessel; I went that night to lie down in the rope-walk, and found this rope, I thought it might get me a piece of bread in the

<p>Mrs. SUNDERLAND sworn. - I live at No. 20, Holles-street, Clare-market: On Sunday evening, the 11th of January, the prisoner came to my house about seven o'clock; he came to take a lodging for himself and another sailor; there was a young man with him dressed like a sailor; the prisoner at the bar had a small box; I saw him open the box, to shew that he had abundance of things in it to pay the lodgings; it was only corded round when I saw it; it was not locked; he told me his wife had gone away from him, and he had kept all her clothes; I said, I could not conceive it could be his wife's, for she was a small woman; he lodged at my house with her four months before; these things were much larger than her's; besides, she had only common clothes; they lodged with me four days, they had no box then; the young lad that he brought along with him, said, have nothing to do with that box, ma'am, for he has stole it; he denied the charge; I let him put it in a two-pair of stairs back room, which he had taken, and then they both went away, and said they would return in about half an hour; I saw no more of him till the next morning, then I asked him what was to be done with the box, and the young man again said he had stole it from a coach, and then the prisoner went to strike him; I was very much alarmed; then they both went up stairs, and opened it; I told him to be honest, and go and give up the box to the inn again; then he came down stairs, and said he would go to the inn, and bring the lady, or get her to send a porter for it.</p>
<p>Q. Did they say what inn? - A. No; they both said they came by the Portsmouth coach; I then went, and asked Mr. Goring's advice; while he was gone, there came a little woman, who said, she was his wife, that she had come for a box of her things that he had taken away, and that it had been left there by mistake; it was not the woman that lived with him when he lodged with me before; I asked her what it contained, and she could not inform me; she was going away, and the prisoner came in, and he insisted upon my giving up
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180102180013"/>the box, and I would not; I asked him if that was his wife, and he said, no, it was a woman he lived with; about four o'clock, he came with a man that called himself a constable, and three other men, to make me give it up, and then I went and fetched Mr. Goring, but the man afterwards disowned being a constable.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I was coming through Whitechapel; I met a woman that asked me to take this trunk to my lodging; I opened it before Mrs. Sunderland, and when I lodged with her before, I rigged her and her daughter out with money that I had taken at Somerset-house.

<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley. Q. It was dusk? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q.And the boy had a round hat on? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q.He is but a very little boy, and therefore you could not very well have seen his face, you being so much taller? - A. That is the boy that had the clothes under his arm when he went from my door, I am sure of it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you never tell any body you did not think that was the boy you first saw at your door? - A. No; I never did.</p>
<p>JOHN DIBBLE sworn. - In consequence of what my wife told me, I went after the prisoner; he was then about seven or eight yards from me; I came up to him, and asked him what he had been doing; he said, nothing, he was upon his master's business; I saw the shirt under his coat.</p>
<p>Jury. Q.Was it wet? - A. Yes; just wrung out from the wash-tub; I took the shirt and pillow-case from under his jacket, and carried it with the boy to the officer.(The officer produced the property, which was deposed to by Mrs. Dibble).</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I was going of an errand; my mistress sent me to look for my master, and I saw two boys come out of this shop and drop something, and run away; I picked it up; the gentleman came after me, and asked me what I had got; I said I had got a prize, but I did not know what it was.</p>

<p>Court. Q. Are you answerable for the goods put into this lighter? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley. Q. Was the lighter compleatly unloaded on the 17th? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Were either Saunders or Cole employed on board the lighter that day? - A. No; I thought they were at Barking with some dung; I wanted some dung, particularly for some land of mine; I expected them both to be there, and do nothing else; it was their duty to have been at Barking.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Clifton. Q. They return backwards and forwards to their families? - A. Yes.</p>

<p>THOMAS RADFORD sworn. - Examined by Mr. Knapp. I am a servant to MR. Bold; On the Friday, the day before the property was lost, I saw the three prisoners on board the lighter; they were taking a few plumbs in their hands, that was all I saw them do; I had some suspicion taht there were some baskets concealed in the lighter, and, on Saturday night, I told Mr. Davis, and he got a key, and I went on board with him.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you observed them on board the lighter? - A.About a quarter of an hour; we found eleven baskets in the locker, we left them there, and locked them up.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. Alley. Q. You saw these men tasting the plumbs? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. That is thing you all do, I suppose? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no key to this lock but the one that Davis had? - A. Yes, they all had keys.</p>
<p>Mr. Davis. I went on board the Cazinove with the last witness; I unlocked the locker, and found eleven baskets of raisins.</p>
<p>Q. Was that the place where raisins were likely to be found? - A. That place had nothing at all to do with the bulk of the raisins that ought to have been put into the lighter; I locked them up again, and left them exactly as they were; I set Mr. Wilson, another clerk of Mr. Blot's and three others, to watch the lighter; I was with them; we watched from the accompting-house window, where we could see the lighter, that was on Saturday evening.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q.Then you might suppose that there was some robbery going forward? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And for the purpose of inducing some person to commit a theft, you left them? - A. I certainly did.</p>

<p>Court. Q.Have your lighters business out of a night? - A.Sometimes.</p>
<p>Q. You saw them at Ralph's quay; what did you see next? - A.They hauled her up to Dice quay, along-side the William of Aldborough, a Suffolk Vessel; I then desired Reece to row the ashore, for I thought they were then going to take the baskets on to the wharf; I then went on shore, and on to the wharf; I then went over the vessels to see if she was still by the side of the Aldborough vessel, I found she was gone; I then went over some other vessels, and found her along-side the Hawk, of Deal, the three prisoners were in her then; I then went to Smart's quay, and waited there some time, then Reece came to me, and I told him to row about till he found her; she was then gone from along-side the Hawke; I then went on board a Yarmouth vessel, called the Hope, of Deal; in three or four minutes, I saw Saunders hail the Cazinove lighter out of the dock; he then led her along-side the Hawke, of Deal, again; I then went to look for Mr. Bolt, to know what was to be done; I could not find him; I sent for an officer, and saw them coming out of the gun-tap; we followed Saunders and Cole, and took them in Salutation-court.</p>
<p>Court. Q.How long was this after you had seen them on the river? - A. I dare say half an hour; they said they did not know what they were taken for, they were delivered to Green; we did not apprehend Barton till last Monday, at Spice lslands; after we had apprehended the prisoners, we went out, and found ten baskets of raisins inside of the Hope of Deal, and one basket outside, the ten laid between the Hope of Deal, and the Hope of Yarmouth.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180102180018"/>Q. How do you know that? - A. I know them very well.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see their faces? - A. Yes; I can swear to their features.</p>
<p>Q. There were a good many barges about at this time? - A. Yes; at one time I was so near to Saunders, that I turned round, and was afraid of being discovered; I have known Cole working for us for some years, and Saunders has worked five months with us.</p>
<p>Court. Q.Where was it that you last saw all the prisoners together on board? - A. While the Cazinove lay along-side the Hope, of deal.</p>
<p>JACOB REECE sworn. - Examined by Mr. Knapp. I was with Mr. Johnson upon the watch at Freshwharf; I saw the Cazinove lay along-side the Hope, of Deal, at Billingsgate-dock; I afterwards saw her shoved out along-side the Hawke, it was dark, and I did not see any body on board her when she was at Billingsgate-dock; but when she was shoved out, I saw the prisoner, Saunders, on board; he shoved her out, and made her fast along-side the Hawke.</p>
<p>JAMES CUTHBERT sworn. - Examined by Mr. Knapp. I was on board the Hawke, on Saturday night, the 7th of January.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoners? - A. I know one of them, Cole, he came on board our vessel, and enquired for the Hope, that was between nine and ten o'clock, there were two more with him, but I don't know them; they made the lighter fast to our vessel, and then came on board our vessel.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the Cazinove? - A. No; Cole asked me for my master, Thatcher; I told him my master was not Thatcher, but Hill; then I hailed the Hope, and Cole was going to throw me over-board, because I made such a noise; he called me a young b-r, and if I did not hold my tongue, he would knock me to hell.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Clifton. How long have you known Cole? - A.Ever since he failed in the Hawke.</p>
<p>Q. How long ago is that? - A.Six months.</p>
<p>Q. You were before the Lord-Mayor? - A. Yes.</p>

<p>Q.Recollect yourself - Did you not point out Saunders as the man who spoke to you? - A.They all three spoke to me about making a noise.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. Q. How came you to point out Saunders? - A. I knew him by his great coat.</p>
<p>Q.How came you to say just now, that the only one of the three that you knew was Cole? - A. I knew Saunders by his coat.</p>
<p>Q. Do you mean to swear, knowing that man's life is at stake, that Saunders was one of them? - A. Yes; he had on a fustian great coat; and when he was before the Lord-Mayor, he had the same coat on.</p>

<p>ANDREW TAYLOR sworn. - I am a patrol belonging to Bow-street: On the 30th of January I was on the Hampstead-road, I met the prisoner at the bar between eight and nine o'clock in the evening, about thirty yards on this side of Tottenham-court-gate, he had got a bundle; I asked him what he had got there; he said it was his own property; I asked him what it was; he said it was iron; I asked him where he got it; he told me he had found it; I asked him where, and he said, under a hayrick, as he was cutting hay; I think he said in Mr. Mortimer's ground, but I am not sure whether he mentioned Mr. Mortimer or not; I was going to take him to public-house; he said, for God's sake, Mr. Taylor, don't hurt me; he knew me, but I did not know him; he said, you know me very well, I live in Kentish-town; I cannot hurt you, says I. If it is your own property, I must see what it is; I looked at it, and found it to be some
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180102180021"/>old rusty iron bars, and some new iron, for something in the farmering line, that I believe had never been used; he said he knocked his knife against them as he was cutting the hay; I asked him who he worked for, and he told me Mr. Mortimer; I went and acquainted Mr. Mortimer, and he came to Bow-street and claimed the iron.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gurney. Q.He told you it was iron? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>CHARLES GREGORY sworn. - I was with Taylor; I know no more of it than Taylor has said.(The iron was produced and deposed to by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Court. Q.Where did you keep the iron? - A. In a place adjoining the kitchen; I had seen it about a fortnight before; he has worked for me from a year to a year and a half, or two years.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Q. By what mark do you swear to that iron? - A. Here is a harrow tire, which is made out of an old tire, and here are the nail holes, they are made remarkably stout and out of size.</p>
<p>JOHN BRADY sworn. - I am a blacksmith, at Camden-town, I made these harrow teeth, they have not been used, they were made out of some old strakes, I never saw such before nor since, I can swear positively to them, I never made such things before in my life, nor any body else, I verify believe.</p>
<p>The prisoner left his defence to his Counsel, and called six witnesses, who gave him a good character.

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180102180022"/>no right to be in the barn; I then went to the barn and directed the barn-man to watch who came for the sack of corn; it was Saturday night, and I directed him, after I paid him, to go into the barn, fasten the door, and hide himself; a little while after this I paid the prisoner his wages, and just after that, between six and seven o'clock, Anderson, the barn-man, brought the prisoner to me; he seemed very much frightened; I asked him how he had got into the barn; he told me by means of a nail he forced the lock open, which nail, he said, he had thrown down on the left hand side of the barn door.</p>
<p>Q.Had you made him any promise? - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Nor threatened him? - A.Neither; I kept charge of the prisoner all night, for I could not procure an officer; in the morning I procured an officer, and told him that was his prisoner, I gave charge of him; when I went to look for the sack I found it removed very near the barn door; I went to search for the nail he spoke of, but instead of finding the nail I found this key, (produces a skeleton key); before I put my initials into the sack I looked at the heap of corn on the barn floor, and there appeared to be some gone; It was put there to be cleaned, and I found in the sack a quantity of the same sort of dust; corn is generally skreened, and this was taken out before it was skreened; I have no doubt of it being part of the same heap, there are three bushels and three pecks.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I took the corn with intent of giving it to the horses.</p>
<p>Q. Had he any thing to do with feeding the horses? - A.Nothing at all; he had no business with it.</p>
<p>RALPH ANDERSON sworn. - I am barn-man to the last witness; I was ordered into the barn by my master, on the 17th of January; I had been employed that day in cleaning corn in the barn; the prisoner was backwards and forwards in the barn several times; the street door of the barn was left open in the evening, and I let myself in and fastened the door, and I covered myself in the sheaves that were not threshed; after I had been there about ten minutes, I heard somebody open the door and come into the barn; he came down the barn floor and went to the sack of oats, at the end of the barn; it was upon some trusses of straw, about my height; I heard him take down the sack, he moved it to where the floor rose, and then he took it upon his shoulder; I rose from out of the sheaves that I was covered with, and said, stop, or I will shoot you dead; he turned round and said, will you; I said, yes Henry; I went up to him and told him he must go with me to my master, and then it would be explained who came for the lack of oats; he said he did not care for that, for he was only going to take them to Joe, who was our carter, and has since absconded.</p>
<p>Q.Was it usual for you to skreen the oats before you gave them to the horses? - A. Always before it is given to the granary, or else they are not finished.(Potter Batson, the constable, produced the sack; containing some oats and a piece of paper with the initials of the prosecutor upon it).</p>
<p>Hutchings. This is the same piece of paper that I put into the sack; the prisoner came to live with me last Michaelmas.</p>

<p>Q.Did you at all lose sight of him? - A. Yes; while I was going round the hay-stack, that was all; I seized the prisoner and said, what, I have got you at last; upon which he threw down the truss of hay and put his hands in his great coat pockets; I told him to take them out or I would cut them; I then made him take up the truss of hay and carry it to a pair of high yard gates which opened from the yard; I got over the gates to unfasten them; the prisoner then threw down the truss of hay and ton away; I pursued and retook him, at the distance of about forty yards from the gates, and made him come back; I desired him to take up the truss of hay and carry it into the high road, which he would not do; I then threatened to cut him unless he went into the high road, which threats I repeated three or four times to no effect; I was under the necessiry then of cutting him on the leg with a sword; after this the prisoner went with me, and I put him into the custody of the watchman of the night; I then returned to the yard gates where the truss of hay was; I took it to the accompting-house, and there

<p>WILLIAM MARCH, jun. sworn. - I am a fishing-tackle-maker: I was putting up my shutters on Tuesday evening, about seven o'clock, and I saw the two prisoners standing at Mr. Moggridge's window; I looked at them and they walked away, but returned back almost immediately, and went away again, and just as I had finished putting up my shotters I observed them coming across the way a third time; I told my father I thought they were going to cut Mr. Moggridge's window, and I put on my hat and went out; Tally was then going past our door, and I saw him putting a shoe under his coat; I immediately laid hold of Tally, and called out to stop the other boy; on laying hold of him he fell down, and the shoe was under him; I delivered him into the hands of another person and went after the other boy, who had not got more than four or five yards, and in taking Mullings into Mr. Moggridge's shop I kicked the shoe before me; I took him into the shop and delivered him to the officer.</p>

<p>Mr. Moggridge. Upon examining the window directly after I came home, I found it had been cut; it was broke before, but had been mended by a glazier; the glass was cut in a three corner square, sufficient to take out the shoes; it was impossible they could have fell out, they were the top pair of a pile of seven that I had taken in from the women binders at five o'clock that evening; they laid one in another upon their sides; there is no particular mark about them, only that they are my own cutting and trimming, and they correspond in the number; there are six pair left.</p>
<p>Q.What may the value of them be? - A.Four shillings.</p>
<p>William March, jun. When they were searched Tally had a knife in his waistcoat pocket, which I saw taken from him.(Mr. March, sen. produced the knife).</p>
<p>Mr. Moggridge. The putty was quite fresh, and might have been taken away with the finger, it was removed all round; I made particular search after the glass, but could not find it; it was puttied inside and out, and some sacks put in to strengthen the frame.</p>

<p>Mulling's defence. One of my sisters was taken very sick; my father works at London bridge, and I was going to fetch him, and that young man followed me and took me back to the shop.</p>

<p>WILLIAM MARCH, sen. sworn. - On Wednesday evening, about half past eight o'clock, I was sent for by Mr. Haylett, who keeps the Black-lion, in Water-lane: I took the last witness into custody, and I took the cart and the timber into Mr. Haylett's yard; in consequence of information, I took a person of the name of Josselin into custody, and sent them both to the Compter; they were taken the next morning before the Magistrate.</p>
<p>CHRISTOPHER JOSSELIN sworn. - I deal in coals and wood, in Old-street-road, near the turnpike at Shoreditch Church: I hired Jefferys's cart to fetch away this wood, which I was to buy of a man of the name of Creed, I know nothing of the prisoner; I went into Water-lane, but could not find the place, and I then went home; after I had been home some time, I was informed that the boy, and the horse and cart, had been stopped; and I was taken into custody.</p>
<p>WILLIAM JEFFERYS, sen. sworn. - I let my cart to Joffelin, and sent my son with it.</p>
<p>LYON SOLOMONS sworn. - I am an officer: I apprehended the prisoner, about ten o'clock last Thursday morning, in Old-street-road; he had another man with him, but he ran away.</p>
<p>Goodman. The timber is not here; I knew it to be mine by a mark that I put upon it when I bought it; I had not given any body authority to take it away.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. I was employed by two coalheavers to help to load the cart, I did not know the men; I lent a hand to put three pieces of timber into a cart, I know no more about it; it is very common at the water-side for us to lend one another a hand.
