<p>Q. Did the gentleman pursue him? - A. Yes, he did; I saw him pursue him.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him take the man? - A. No; we lost sight of the man going across Ball's-Pond fields. I then went on.</p>

<p>Q. Look at the prisoner; is he the man you saw at Bow-street? - A. Yes; I was struck with the lower part of his face. I think it is the man by the lower part of his face, and his figure altogether.</p>
<p>Q. Was it light or dark? - A. It was not very light; it was between the hours of three and four; it was getting dark; when I was going up to Canonbury-house I noticed a man whom I believe to be the man who robbed me.</p>
<p>Q. Was it light enough for you to see him running across the fields to some distance? - A. Yes, it was.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. I suppose you never saw this man before? - A. Never before that day.</p>

He immediately said I answered the description of a man that had committed a robbery last Monday week. He searched me; he took off my hat; he searched me about a quarter of an hour; not finding any thing, I thought he would never leave off. After taking every thing from me but the mallow-leaves, which I gathered for my legs, which are very bad, he said I must go with him.</p>
<p>Q.(To Cox.) Had he some mallow-leaves in his pocket - A. He had a few dead leaves; they were quite dry; and were not gathered that day.</p>

<p>- JONES sworn. - Examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. You keep a public-house in Chiswell-street? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner at the bar? - A. I do. On the 27th of January the prisoner, and another man with him, came to my house, and called for a glass of gin. When they had drank it, they put down a bad half-crown; I told them it was a bad one; he gave me another, for which I gave him change. They went out, and I followed them.</p>
<p>Q. Why did you follow them? - A. I suspected they were doing something they should not. I followed them till they went into another house in Finsbury-street (Mr. Hall's), and I went in when they came out.</p>
<p>Q. Was a half-crown produced to you by Mr. Hall? - A. Yes; he had it in his hand.</p>

<p>Q. What did you say to them? - A. Hall shewed him the half-crown, and told him he had given him a bad half-crown; they said they did not know it was a bad one; I said I had told him before that it was a bad one myself; they answered they did not know me, nor where I lived; the other man said that. We took them back to the White Horse (Mr. Hall's, in Finsbury-street), and sent to Worship-street for an officer</p>
<p>Q. When the officer came, did you see him search the prisoner? - A. Yes; there was nothing but good money found upon him, and some gin in a bottle.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know the other man? - A. No, I never saw him before.</p>
<p>Q. How long were they in your house? - A. About two or three minutes; while they drank their liquor.</p>
<p>Counsel for the prisoner. Q. Was there any thing particular in that half-crown? - A. Yes, there were letters on it. I marked it when Hall had it.</p>
<p>Q. You did not mark it before? - A. No; I marked it by the desire of the officer.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not heard of a reward? - A. I did not do it with that intent; I do not look for it; I do not know that there is, I will swear.</p>

<p>Q.(To Jones.) Is that the half-crown that was presented to you? - A. Yes; there is a G and J, two letters that I put on it.</p>
<p>Q.(To Hall.) Is that the half-crown that he tendered to you? - A. I am sure this is the same half-crown; there is a mark on the other side that I put on it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's defence. As we were coming on, the other man was with me, we went into this house to have something to drink; I put down half a crown; the first witness said it was a bad half-crown, I said I took it for a good one, I did not suppose that man to be a judge, I had drank two or three glasses before, I did not think it a bad one when I went in, I had been working at the docks; we went into the other house to drink again, and there I offered it, thinking the other man might not be a judge, whether it was a good one or not. I really did not know it was a bad one; I took it for a good one</p>

<p>Q. What led you to go up stairs? - A. I did not go up myself; I sent a servant who had taken Sophia's place; it was not burning then, it had the appearance then of being burnt; a gown which lay in the wardrobe was burnt, and the wardrobe door was locked with a key in it, and nothing else in that place was burnt; and a place burnt on the stairs, with some grease left, as though a candle had been placed there, opposite the bed-room door; all was safe when I came home; I had been out about three hours, and about three quarters of an hour afterwards, I had occasion to send up for something in the bed-room; my servant, who had taken Sophia's place, came down, and said the room was full of smoke; I ran up stairs, and as soon as I could recover the suffocation, I saw the clothes burnt, without the least appearance of flame or blaze.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any fire in the room? - A. No; I had not had a fire in the room for a fortnight; I called for somebody to come up, the washer-woman came up, and caught the clothes burning.</p>
<p>Q. Were the window-curtains blazing? - A. No; some parts were red, and some parts were black.</p>
<p>Q. You do not yourself know when the prisoner went out? - A. No, I do not; when I came home she was gone; I enquired when she went out; I was told she had been out about a quarter of an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Had you discharged her? - A. No; I meant to discharge her the day after.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any quarrel with her? - A. I had told her of running me in debt, at four or five places in the neighbourhood.</p>
<p>Q. Did she know she was to go away? - A. Yes, she did.</p>
<p>Q. What time did she come home again? - A. Not till the next day, about twelve o'clock.</p>

<p>Q. Who do you mean by maid servant? - A. The prisoner; the accident was on the first of February.</p>
<p>Q. At what time did you go up on that day? - A. I went up about ten minutes past five, or thereabouts; there was no smell of fire then in the room.</p>
<p>Q. When did you go up again? - A. About half an hour after; then I found it very smokey, and was very much alarmed. I went down to my mistress, and asked her if the chimnies were given to smoking; she said no; and told me to go up again, and smelling fire, I screamed for assistance; the best of the clothes that had been put on the bed were like tinder, and the bed-clothes were all in a moulder.</p>
<p>Q. Were they blazing? - A. No; quite of a smother; the farther cornice of the window was quite of a moulder, and the window-curtain like tinder.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know at what time the prisoner went out on the day this happened? - A. About five in the evening; I could not keep her in the house; she refused to stop.</p>
<p>Q. What did you want to keep her in the house for? - A. I wanted her to stop to dinner; she said she wanted to go to a lady, to get her in the hospital; she said she was afraid of going down Piccadilly, for fear of meeting her mistress and another lady.</p>
<p>Q. She was gone before her mistress came home? - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How soon did her mistress come home? - A. She came home about half-past five.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether she had been up stairs that afternoon? - A. I rather think she had.

<p>Q.Could that have been? - A. No; I was very particular in it.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Knapp. Q. I understood, you let your warpers take a number of bobbins away to work them up at their houses; now, suppose last Wednesday she had so many bobbins, she ought to bring them back perhaps on Saturday, and perhaps they may not bring them home till Monday; they may not always bring them home at the exact time? - A. They always do, or should do.</p>
<p>Q. Now the bobbins that she had in her pocket, she might be mistaken as to the time, whether it was a fortnight, or three weeks, or two months; when you went to look at the bag, was the mouth of the bag next the scale? - A. I cannot say; Mr. Titford shook the bag before I could notice it.</p>
<p>Q. Whether they were at the top at first, you cannot say, Mr. Titford might have shook them to the bottom; was the mouth of the bag open or shut? - A. I cannot say.</p>
<p>Court. Q. How much does your scale hold? - A. It will hold two hundred bobbins very well, without any danger of falling out.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. Q. Was any white silk delivered to the prisoner? - A. About two months before.</p>
<p>Court. Q. When you deliver the silk, you weigh it out to your workwomen, and when they bring it back, you weigh it again? - Yes, but we are not particular to half an ounce, and sometimes they keep it a week; we give them another day, when they cannot finish it.</p>
<p>Q. You do not give them two months? - A. No.</p>

<p>Q. You then went and examined the bag? - A. I took the bag up with both my hands, and opened the bag at the counter; I opened the bag, and said, here they are, and took out five bobbins of black and one of white silk.</p>
<p>Q. Was your scale like any thing full? - A. No, the scale is a very large scale, it is totally impossible; (Mr. Titford looks at the bobbins, and identifies them); the value of the six bobbins found in the bag is about six shillings, the value of the five bobbins of white silk found in her pocket about three shillings.</p>
<p>Q. You do not sell any silk in that unmanufactured state? - A. Never in that state.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180402150016"/>watch-case, called a box; I received the case from him, and put it in the inside pocket of my great coat; I then went to two or three places in Clerkenwell to others of our workmen, and from thence to Pentonville to my grandmother to dinner; it was then about half past two o'clock. When I got there, I pulled off my great coat; I am not certain whether I hung it on the hook in the passage, or threw it over the bannisters of the stairs; I felt for the watch-case before I went through the garden-gate, it was there then; I staid at my grandmother's about four or five hours; it was near eight o'clock when I went away. I went from thence to Bell-dock; I put my great coat on before I went out; I cannot recollect whether I took it from the hook in the passage, or from the bannisters, I took it down myself. I did not miss the watch-case till the next morning; then I went and pulled down my great coat, and looked for it, I found it was gone; I had not an opportunity of going to Pentonville that day, but the day after I went. I went down stairs to the servant, the prisoner lived with my grandmother, and told her I had lost a gold box, and asked her if she had seen it; I explained it to her what it was; I told her she might have found it amongst the dust, and if she had, or did, I would give her three guineas; she said she had not seen it. I got one made four days after that; I went down stairs, and shewed it her, and told her that was the pattern of the one I lost; she said she had not seen it; I never saw it afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that you had felt it in your pocket on going into your grandmother's garden-gate? - A. Yes, I put my hand in, and felt it.</p>
<p>Q. When you went home from your grandmother's, did you never put your hand in to feel it was safe? - A. No, I had my two brothers arm in arm with me; I never told my master; then I got another made to supply its place.</p>
<p>Q. What was the value of the gold box? - A. The original value of the gold box lost was five pounds seventeen shillings; the one I got made cost five pounds five shillings and ninepence.</p>
<p>Q. What was the weight of the one lost? - A. This one I had made was the weight of the other lost - one ounce three penny-weights; I had no conversation with the prisoner after that.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Q. When you came down stairs to me, it was on Wednesday? - A. It was on Tuesday.</p>

She said, she shewed it to Mr. Todd, the cheesemonger, in Battle-bridge, Mr. Todd looked at it, and said, he thought it was not gold. After that, she said she shewed it to a man that keeps a potato-warehouse, he cut it with a knife, and said, he thought it was gold; she asked me if I would sell it for her, as she had no opportunity of getting out; if I would, she would satisfy me for my trouble. I asked her if it had been advertised; she said, no, it had not; I asked her if her young mistress was present when she picked it up; she said she was.</p>
<p>Q. You don't know when it was? - A. No; to the best of my knowledge it is about five weeks ago or thereabouts; it was in two pieces, it was not rivetted; I took it to the Maidenhead public-house, Battle-bridge, two days after, and asked the landlord if he had seen an advertisement of a gold watch case; he said, no, have you found one; I said, no; there was a gentleman in the house reading the newspaper, and I shewed it to him. After that, I took it home again, and kept it there for three or four days; I sold it at last to a Jew in Chancery-lane for one guinea and a half.

On enquiring of her where one of those pieces was, she said she knew nothing of it; I then told her that she must have the piece of muslin, as there was no other person in the shop; she again denied it; I then sold her a quarter of a yard of muslin, to the amount of eighteen-pence halfpenny. She went out; I then told the young man at the bottom of the shop to bring her back, as I was confident that she had it; the young man brought her in immediately; I then asked her for the piece of muslin; she denied having it, or knowing any thing about it. I then told the young man to go up stairs, and tell Mr. Brooks; previous to Mr. Brooks coming, she went behind a wrapper of muslins, and stooping she dropped the muslin on the ground; then said, here it is lying on the floor.</p>
<p>Q. Could you undertake to say whether it was not, before the young man brought her back into your shop, laying there before she came in? - A. I am sure it was not, I looked all about there.</p>
