<p>Q. As to those taken from Piper, can you speak to them at all? - A. No, any further than when we counted the number in the cask, they were missing; there should have been four dozen in the cask, and we found four pair were gone; the prisoners worked in the warehouse where the boots were.</p>

<p>Q. When was it you searched the pocket of the other man, Piper? - A. After Griffiths had got out into the street; I went into the warehouse, and took up the jacket; I asked Piper if it was his; he said, yes, and asked how it came there; he said, he had left it upon the case; I went down into the accompting-house with him, and put his jacket on the stool in the accompting-house; I looked, and found two pair of boots, one pair in each pocket, of the same sort of boots; I cannot swear to them; they were delivered to the officer.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. (Counsel for Piper.)
<persName id="t18020602-2-person67">Q. </persName> Griffiths took to his heels, and ran away? - A. Yes.</p>

<p>Mr. Laurie. This is the boot that had the rent in it; the others are the same kind of boots; I believe them to be the same.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. All the boots were consigned from Scotland in a cask? - A. Yes.</p>

<p>The prisoner, Piper, left his defence to his Counsel, and called his serjeant, who gave him a good character.</p>
<p>The prisoner, Griffiths, put in a written defence, stating that he was innocent of the crime.</p>

I immediately went towards the place, again, and heard the same words repeated with a shrill voice; I went round the corner and caught the prisoner and this old gentleman down flat upon his back, across the kennel; when I saw that, I took hold of the prisoner's collar and hauled him away; as soon as the old gentleman found I had got hold of him, he said, watchman, I give you charge of that man, for he had knocked me down three times, and robbed me; the prisoner immediately said, watchman, he is my comrade; he is very drunk, and I want to get him up.</p>
<p>Q. Did he say that in pretty good English? - A. Yes; then another watchman came up, and I desired him to list the old gentleman up, for he could not get up himself; we took them both to the watch-house, and delivered them up to the officer of the night, who searched the prisoner, and found upon him, in my presence, fourteen pence halfpenny; the officer of the night desired me to go

<p>Q. Did he appear to you at all to be drunk? - A. He appeared to be very much frightened; but when we got him to the watch-house, he was very steady; indeed he did not appear to be at all in liquor.</p>
