On the 27th of September, about four o'clock in the afternoon, the prisoners Blacksley and Simmonds came into my shop under pretence of buying a shawl, they staid there some time bargaining with my shopman.</p>
<p>Q. Were you in the shop. - A. I was; Blacksley stood with her back against some calico placed at the window with some wire before them; my attention was taken up with some customers that I had in the shop; when they were gone I missed Blacksley in a moment, and immediately I missed her I missed a piece of print out of the window. I asked Simmonds where she was gone, she said she did not know, I ran into the street and found her hiding herself at a gentleman's steps in St. Martin's lane; I told her she had stole a piece of print, she denied it, I brought her back to the shop, and I said to her you had better confess.</p>
<p>Q. You must not tell what she said. - A. She had given the cotton to
<persName id="t18061029-1-person56">Wood</persName> the moment she left the shop, Wood was waiting in the street.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see Wood in the street. - A. No, not till Blacksley said where the print was, and delivered it up.</p>
<p>- ANTHONY sworn. Q. You are an officer; all you know is finding these things. - A. Yes, in a court in Windmill street.</p>

In another cupboard we found this file, and another file with it, and in the same cupboard was this piece of putty, with an impression of a key upon it; that putty is used for the purpose when they get hold of a key of a gentleman's door, to take the impression. In the same room we found a silk handkerchief, which the woman prisoner said belonged to her, she said she bought it at some place which she mentioned; this was sworn to by the woman to the best of her belief.

The occasion of my knowing them to have been stolen, I was informed by an officer of Worship-street that they had taken one of my servants with some lead; I went with them to the dwelling house of the prisoner, they had a search warrant, and on searching the house I found in company with the officer, ninety five guineas in gold, in two paper boxes.</p>
<p>Q. That was not yours, you had not missed any gold. - A. We found a number of things in iron and brass that I recognised to be mine; part of them I have sworn to be my property, they came from my house.</p>
<p>Q. What are the articles you found. - A. Brass bosses, parts of brass door knockers, and what we call bell carriages.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Reynolds.</p>
<p>Q. These articles are not peculiar to your warehouse. - A. The bosses are old bosses taken out of a crane which I had taken out from Mr. Newman of Snowhill; strictly speaking they are Mr. Newman's property, but under my care till I had sent Mr. Newman my account, then I should have allowed for the value of them.</p>
<p>Q. Have you ever seen these articles that you have been speaking of in Mr. Newman's house. - A. I saw them upon the arms of the crane in which they were placed, and I saw them in my house after they were taken out; and I had missed them for two or three days, they were laying on his vice board.</p>
<p>Q. This man you say had lived with you sixteen years, you must have had a good opinion of him. - A. So much so, his father who died in my service, after twenty years servitude, bound his wife's son apprentice to me; there was fifty pounds left. I made him a freeman, and made him a present of forty pounds odd, because the boy was to be instructed by him. He was a man that I should have been glad if this had not happened, I should have been pleased to have sacrificed five hundred pounds for him.</p>

On Friday the 17th of October I was in company with Mason, a brother officer, going down Purl street, in the parish of Christ Church; I observed the prisoner in an old iron shop with a bag, and out of that bag he shot into a scale that was in the old iron shop, about seventy pounds of lead. I went in immediately with Mason, and asked the prisoner where he got that lead; he hesitated for some time, I informed him that I was an officer of Worship street; it was my duty to know. He at last informed me he was foreman to Mr. Marriott, and that it was his perquisite. I took him to the office; my brother officer went immediately to Mr. Marriott's, to know whether it was the truth. Mr. Marriott appeared at the office; I produce the lead.</p>
<p>- BISHOP sworn. In consequence of a search warrant I went in company with Mr. Marriott, Mason, and Ray, to the apartments of the prisoner No. 5, Little Purl street. On searching his back room I found a quantity of brass articles.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got the bosses that Mr. Marriott speaks of. - A. Yes, I produce them.</p>
<p>Mr. Marriott. These are the bosses, they are those that have been worn by friction; these six bosses belonged to one frame, which composes the crane of the warehouse.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that they are those you took from Mr. Newman. - A. Yes, I saw them day by day; the prisoner put new iron ones in the crane for those he took out.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give these bosses, or any other article, to this man, allowing them as perquisites. - A. Never in my life, nor ever heard of such a thing. I should have stated they were found concealed in the hole of a forge in a bag in a little shop.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. It ways always a rule in the trade ever since I have been in it, that is almost nineteen years, to have the old brass and lead. If the right person had them they belong to Mr. Newman, Skinner street.</p>

<p>Q. Then in a shop where there is a great deal of work done, it must be worth something to a foreman, the old brass and the old lead must be worth two or three hundred pounds a year. - A. No.</p>

On the 7th of October, about seven in the evening, the property was taken from my house; I had seen it about twenty minutes or a quarter of an hour before that at the further end of the counter, that comes into the passage of a night, in a place where we keep brooms and such things. I suspected some person in the house had thrown it there for the purpose of conveying it away. I went out and pulled the street door too, leaving my nephew, my shopman, and my porter, in the house; when I went out I waited about a quarter of an hour in sight of the door, at about thirty yards distance.</p>
<p>Q. You went to such a distance that you could see any body coming out. - A. The way I could see was by the opening of the door; when I saw the door open, I drew nearer. I saw him coming out, I saw it was the porter.</p>
<p>Q. How far off were you then. - A. From ten to fifteen yards, I walked up to him, I asked him what he had got there, he said nothing; I then requested that he would go back with me to see what the bundle contained.</p>
<p>Q. You saw a bundle then. - A. Oh, yes, when I came up I could see him as well as at broad day. I saw a bundle, he went back with me as far as the door, and when I was in the act of ringing the bell he disentangled himself by twisting my arm, and gave me a blow across my breast; in the act of escaping his arm came across my chest, he then ran down Southampton-street towards the Strand; I pursued him and cried out stop thief, he was stopped in the Strand.</p>
<p>Q. You came up to him. - A. Yes; he had not the bundle with him when he was taken.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you afterwards see the bundle. - A. I saw the bundle in my nephew's possession at the bottom of Southampton-street not a minute after. It contained a piece of our furniture cotton, about twenty-eight yards, it was worth two guineas to me.</p>

<p>Q.(to prosecutor) Is that handkerchief yours. - A. It is a silk handkerchief, it is not mine, it was the covering that was on the bundle when I saw it under the man's arm. I saw the handkerchief by the light of a false hair shop.</p>
<p>Q. And the contents is yours. - A. I can safely say it is the cotton I saw in the place under the counter; I know it is mine.</p>

On the night of the 19th of September I met him coming out of the house with a basket of wood. I made him take it back; on opening it I found some quartering cut in pieces, I selected the pieces, and joined them together, which made a piece of quartering and a deal board.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose they call them chips. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Alley.</p>
<p>Q. Mr. Laurence was the master carpenter who did the work at your house. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. I take it for granted you did not superintend the work. - A. Yes, I did.</p>
<p>Q. You could not be by when the wood was stolen. - A. How do you know that.</p>
<p>Q. I dare say you was better employed; when the men first came to the house it was agreed they should have two pints of beer a day. - A. When you talk of agreements I must state to you, I will explain to you, because I must know more of it than you.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290011"/>Q. Had not you agreed to allow each of them men two pints of beer in a day. - A. I had no agreement with these men; I stated to the carpenter that I employed, that the men should not take away any wood; I had other buildings, I found that I had been robbed under the pretence of taking away wood; they took iron and lead. He said these men will be discontented unless you let them take some chips for firing, I said let them have what beer you like by way of encouraging them, but then they robbed me to a considerable extent. I do not say this man, it seemed to be a general system, they had cut pieces of oak and carried it away. When I found the men were carrying away the wood and iron, I said I will allow no more beer, I told the men that there was not a splinter in this house but what is my property, and the first man that took out any I will prosecute him. Now that is what you call an agreement.</p>
<p>Court. Did you tell the men they must not take any thing out of the house. - A. Yes, I told them I would not suffer them to take any thing out of the house.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. In point of fact the beer was stopped. A. It was.</p>
<p>Q. It was after the general allowance of beer was stopped you saw the prisoner carrying the basket. A. Yes, and he persisted he would do it. I believe the man thought he had a right; I told him I would put it in issue whether he had or not.</p>
<p>(The property identified by the prosecutor.)</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. When I went to work for Mr. Laurence, the first day I did not go to Mr. Fenton's; the next day I was sent about nine o'clock, Mr. Laurence says, Thomas, Mr. Fenton will allow you two pints of beer, take no chips; I said, very well. I did not take any during the time the beer was not stopped; after the beer was stopped the men began to take away the chips, and I took away the same; I met Mr. Fenton, he said where are you going with them, I said, to my lodgings, he said I must not have them, he threw the basket out in the entry; I said you must have them. I went to the public house and I had a pint of porter, I came back to the house again, at the the corner of the yard I met

When I was at the bar I saw the alderman and Mr. Fenton whispering together, they asked me what I had to say in my defence, and whether I was willing to serve my king and country; I told them I was not sit, I had been fourteen years in the service, and I had been in a French prison. I said I must take my trial for it.</p>
<p>The prisoner called one witness, who gave him a good character.</p>

I went with him along Shoe-lane, till he came to Robin Hood court, he went up the steps into Dean-street; and then made a push to run away, I then seized hold of him and brought him back and repeatedly requested him to tell me whose metal it was, and I would send for his master to take him away, and the metal together.

<p>Q. Had you any other servant. - A. No, only three washerwomen that were washing in the house, the prisoner lived in the house and had to serve them out with soap and every thing that was necessary when they wanted it.</p>
<p>Q. What day was it the prisoner left your house. - A. She left it on the 7th of October at night.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember what day it was. - A. It was on the Tuesday; me and my wife went out to Sadler's Wells, we went off at four o'clock, when I went away I gave her particular care over the house.</p>
<p>Q. At that time were the woman there washing for you. - A. Yes, I gave her the order before the women, I gave her an order not to open the door after nine o'clock, I told her not to open the door to any person after then; but to go up stairs and look out of the window as it would be late before I should get home; it was a long way from Brompton to Sadler's Wells.</p>
<p>Q. What time did you return. - A. I returned at one o'clock in the morning of the 8th. When I came to the house the door was fast, I got a barrow and looked over the window, I saw a candle alight, the door was locked, I went to the back door as I found the key was gone, I went backwards, there was a window left open, and there was a candle left burning in the kitchen, the room that we always live in; the back window was open that laid over the washhouse, there is a board that we lift up to let

I took the candle, I says you take another candle and see if any person is there to knock me down, we went through the house and through every room, and looked under the beds, we went into the room that we sleep in, we found nobody but the dogs, one large one and one little one that we keep. One of the women is in court that left the house at nine o'clock, she says that the prisoner bolted the door after her, and that she did leave Margaret Rrice in the house; when we went into the room my wife looked in the drawers, she says some person has been to the drawers, I went into the room with one candle and she with another; she says I have missed the caps.</p>

<p>Q. What do you value the caps at. - A. The caps are valued at a shilling a piece I think, the two habit shirts they are valued at the same, I believe.</p>
<p>Q. There are two gowns, what do you value them at. - A. I value them at ten shillings a piece, the three petticoats at four shillings a piece, there are two pair of cotton stockings, they are valued at sixpence the two pair, the bedgown I cannot say what it is worth, a pair of stays at eight shillings, a bonnet at one shilling.</p>
<p>Q. A woman's great coat, what is that worth. - A. I cannot say exactly, it is a very good one, I suppose it may be worth about twelve shillings.</p>
<p>Q. Is it worth five, that is what you valued it at. A. I dare say it is worth that.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The watch is mine, I had it new in January, I gave four pounds two shillings and sixpence for it, I valued it at two pounds, I have got the receipt in my pocket, and the particular marks it has in it.</p>
<p>Q. How lately had you seen them before you went out in the afternoon. - A. When I came home again to town I gave she care of it to put it in the top drawers.</p>
<p>Q. You were present when she was taken up Mr. Jones. - A. Yes; I traced her that night, I went in the morning to Bow street, at half after five to get an officer. I found her between nine and ten on the morning of the eighth coming out of No. 73, Great Peter street, Westminster; says I, there she is, with my wife's clothes on, she had got my wife's great coat on and gown and petticoat; she said master there is the watch, she took it out of her bosom. I said I have nothing to do with it, deliver it up to the officer.</p>
<p>Q. Did you search her, and find all the rest of your things. - A. Yes, they were found on her arm, she was coming out of the door, and going away with them, except one bonnet the officer found in the room afterwards that she came out of.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Barrow.</p>
<p>Q. Mr. Jones, what parish is your house in. - A. In the parish of Kensington, in Brompton division, the gentlemen collect the money for Kensington parish.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know that it is in Kensington parish. A. I do not know any further.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutrix) How came you to be so particular, did you examine where these things were before you went out. - A. I had taken things out of the drawers before I went out, I did not take the things out one by one.</p>
<p>Q. You took other things out of the drawer, and that is the only reason you have for recollecting these things were in the drawer. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You saw them together, did you not separate them. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) With respect to the watch, Mr. Jones, you gave her that to take care of. - A. I had broke the glass, it dropped down while we were at tea with the other women, I says, Peggy, take the watch up stairs, and put it on the top of the drawers, which she did. I went up stairs to take my hat, I saw it there then.</p>
<p>Q. The officer found the bonnet afterwards in the room. - A. The bonnet was in the room, and he brought it afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. That is what the officer said, I believe you had a good character with this girl when she came to you. - A. Yes, I trusted her with a five pound note to take to a gentleman, I would have trusted her with any thing else in this world till this unhappy affair.</p>
<p>Q. Did you suspect her. - A. No, not in the least.</p>
<p>Court. If you call five hundred witnesses to her character, it cannot do away the fact, the girl goes out of the house, and the property is found on her.</p>

<p>Q. On the 23 of August last had you a horse to dispose of. - A. I had.</p>
<p>Q. Where did you see the prisoner. - A. At the back of my own house in the mews, he came to me at the stable, he said he heard that I had a horse to sell, he bought a person with him whom I had some little knowledge of, who lived in the neighbourhood. He likewise recommended him to buy the horse, he agreed to give seven pounds for the horse, the horse was shewn him, I asked him for a shilling earnest, he borrowed a shilling of the person that was with him and gave it me; he told me he was about taking some stables in the neighbourhood, it would not be convenient to take him away then, if I would keep it two or three days he would satisfy me for the keep of it; I told him I would, he went away.</p>
<p>Court. I understand from you that you had absolutely sold the horse. - A. Yes, when he had paid me for it.</p>
<p>Q. You stated that you agreed with him for the price of seven pounds, and you desired a shilling earnest, which you had, and then you had stipulated for two or three days that you were to keep the horse. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Then he might have taken it away immediately if he pleased. - A. If he paid for it.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any thing said then about his paying for it. - A. I do not know that there was, I considered the horse as sold, though I had not the money, and I considered that he would pay me the money when he took it away.</p>
<p>Q. You considered the shilling as binding the bargain. - A. Yes, he said he would fetch it away on the Monday, or Tuesday following, and pay me for it, this was on Saturday; on Tuesday he came and trimmed the horse, and took it away; he said he was going as far as Paddington, he thought he had got a customer for the horse, he would go and shew it to a gentleman, and he would bring it back, which he did.</p>
<p>Q. Might not he have sold it to that gentleman. A. I expected he would either bring me the horse or the money back. He brought the horse back at five o'clock, he said it would not suit the gentleman. On Thursday he came into my own shop about one o'clock in the day and asked me to lend him the horse, he had been and sold a horse for sixty guineas, and he wanted to go to Cornhill to get change for a check, he should not be gone above an hour, he would then return and pay for the horse and take it away; on that ground I went out with him and delivered him the horse to go into the city on the ground of him coming back.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean, on the ground of supposing him to come back. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. Q. Do you mean to come back with the horse. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask him what necessity there was for him riding to Cornhill. - A. He said if I would lend him the horse he might as well ride as walk.</p>
<p>Court. Why did you not say he might as well walk as ride. - A. I did not say that.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. Did he ever return the horse. - A. He did not. About a quarter of an hour after he had been with me that day my boy saw a boy riding the horse.</p>
<p>Q. That we shall hear from him, when did you see the horse again. - A. I saw the horse the next day, I saw a boy riding it about the neighbourhood.</p>
<p>Court. You saw nothing of the prisoner then. - A. No, sir, I saw the prisoner about three or four days afterwards I saw him pass where I live, I followed him into a public house in the the neighbourhood, I asked him where my horse was, I told him I heard he had sold it, I told him I would go and take him away from the man that had got it, he said I could not do that, he said he would put another horse into my custody till such times he had paid me for the other; I told him it was very well, I hoped he would bring
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290017"/>me another horse or pay me the money; I told him I thought he wanted to swindle me out of the horse, he made some fair promises, and I expected to see him again the same day; he never came.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. I ask you upon your oath did you never part with this horse as a sale. - A. No, I never should have parted with the horse, except I had the money.</p>
<p>Q. On the Thursday when he came, your apprentice was present in the shop. - A. He was.</p>
<p>Court. What became of the horse afterwards. - A. I went to the man that had bought the horse, and I asked him if he had bought such a horse, he is here, his name is Henderson; I saw the horse last night.</p>

<p>Court. You say you sold this horse the day after the prisoner was taken before a magistrate. - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to dispose of him when you knew this enquiry was before a magistrate. - A. I went down to Marlborough-street when I heard Purveiss was taken up, to hear if Mr. Conant said any thing about horse stealing.</p>
<p>Q. That was at the examination of the prisoner. - A. Yes, and I did not hear any thing that inclined me to keep it, and I was tired of it, it was not worth a guinea instead of seven guineas.</p>
<p>Mr. Reynolds. You say this horse was not worth a guinea to you, what did you sell him for. - A. He was restive and would not turn without backing him; I sold him for eight guineas.</p>
<p>Q. You sold this restive horse for eight guineas. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was nothing at all said to you at Mr. Conant's office. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. You were not told not to sell this horse. - A. Not at the office, there was a man came to me and said you must not part with this horse before we find Purveiss.</p>
<p>Q. Directly Mr. Purveiss was taken up you parted with it. - A. Yes, because I thought I might do what I liked with it then, I am not used to any thing of the kind.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. On the 22d of August I was accompanied by Mr. Warral, a broker, in East-street, in order to purchase a poney he had for sale.</p>
<p>Court. Who had. - A. Mr. Curtis; Mr. Curtis was not at home, we retired to a public house and waited till he came in. He then took me to the stable and shewed me the poney; I saw the poney out, then I requested him to let me ride it to Chapel-street, Lisson Green; he asked me how long I should be gone, I said ten minutes, or a quarter of an hour; the person I went to see was not at home. I returned immediately, he asked me on my return
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290018"/>how I liked the poney, I told him not at all for its riding part, as to its drawing part I did not know; I wanted one to do both; he told me it been accustomed to ride a very little, but it was a very good one in harness; he asked me whether I would make a purchase of it or not; I told him as he had let it till Monday, that would be time enough to decide about it; he said if I thought it would suit me, I might as well decide then, as on Monday; I asked him the lowest price he would take for it, he said seven guineas; I told him I never bought for guineas, I would give him seven pounds for it on Monday if it came back safe; he requested me to give him earnest, I asked him whether he wished for a shilling or a guinea, he said a shilling would do; I having no silver, I borrowed a shilling of the person that took me to him, which I gave him; I called on the Monday at one o'clock, which was the time limited for the poney's return, but it was not returned till the evening; I then called on the Tuesday, the poney was in a very rough state, I trimmed it and made it look in the best state I could, to shew it to another person; I shewed it to the person that I intended to sell it at the time I made the first purchase; I had two or three places to go on business, and after I had gone I returned the poney, I requested him to keep the poney till the end of the week, and I would allow him any thing reasonable for the livery of it, he agreed that it should stand till the end of the week. On Thursday I had occasion to go to two or three places on business, I went to Curtis and asked him to lend me his saddle and bridle, which he did, he put the bridle on and led the poney out, he desired me to take care that he did not kick me and throw me down, he wished that I might not bring it back again; when I got into the adjoining street there was a green grocer wished to look at it, he tried to buy it of me, I let him ride it up and down the street; Mr. Henderson, whom I had previously promised the poney to, provided that he did not suit the person whom I had purchased it for in the first instance, he met me in the same street, he told me that he had got the money for the poney in his pocket if I would take it to his house, which I did, he paid me the money and I gave him a receipt, I requested him to take care of the saddle and the bridle till my return, which might be about five or six o'clock, I did not return that evening; the next morning I went down to Mr. Curtis's, who I saw at his door, I called him to me, we went to a public house to drink a pint of porter, I told him that I had sold the poney, and that I should call and pay him in the course of two or three days, he said he wished to have the money, as he wanted to go to Barnet fair, I told him I should endeavour in the course of the day to get the money, and I was sorry to disappoint him; when I got to the stables where I had two horses that stood at livery, there was a direction left at the stables for me, to a gentleman in the New Road; on my way I called on Curtis, to say that if I was lucky in selling that horse I should call and pay him, but I did not sell it; I told him rather than he should be afraid of his money I would leave him a mare that was worth forty guineas, instead of his poney he requested me to go to his stable to look at his horse's eye; I went to several places to raise the money, but I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go with him to look at the horse's eye. - A. I did go with him to the stable to look at the horse's eye; on the following day I went to two places in the country a little way, for money, when I returned I called in the adjoining street to the stables I had taken, where I was told that Mr. Curtis had been to look for me with three officers, to take me up for horse stealing, I said if that was the case I had got the principal part of the money to pay him, but I would not go near him, I turned my horses's head and went to Bayswater, where I live, and about nine o'clock in the evening he came down to my house with three or four men, I did not see him, I was apprised of it, I went out of the way; I was three weeks about the neighbourhood, I met with a friend of Curtis's, I desired him to send for him in order to settle the business, when he came he brought a constable along with him in order to take me into custody.</p>
<p>Q. Who did. - A. Mr. Curtis; I went before Mr. Conant in Marlborough-street, and Mr. Conant asked Curtis how long he had lost his horse, he said I had not stole it, he had taken earnest, a shilling earnest, he had sold it to me; Mr. Conant thought proper to commit me for it; I have another witness that I should be glad for your lordship to hear.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) I thought you said the agreement was made on the Saturday. - A. It was.</p>
<p>Q. Was the horse engaged to go any where - A. A neighbour of mine wanted me to lend him the horse, to go a little way on Saturday, and he would be home on the Monday.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lend him. - A. I did, it did not return till the Monday evening.</p>
<p>Q. You did not say a word about that before; when Henderson was down there on the Monday the horse was not come back. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. You saw the prisoner on the Saturday following. - A. Yes, I was coming down the street where I live, he beckoned me and I followed him into the public house.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you there that he had sold the poney. - A. He did, I knew to whom he had sold it; I told him, as I had before, I would go and take it away, he said I could not, he would leave another horse in my custody, in case he did notpay me that afternoon; he never brought the horse. I certainly should have taken it if he had, till he paid me the money.</p>
<p>Q. After this did he accompany you with his advice about any horse's eye in your stable. - A. Yes, I asked him to go.</p>
<p>Q. Then during this time you had an opportunity of securing him. - A. I had if I had choosed to do it. I did not think that he would have used me as he had.</p>
<p>Q. You understood that he had sold your horse, and you understood that he had deceived you in getting possession of it. - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. You had no thought of prosecuting him then for stealing it. - A. I had not; it was above a fortnight after that, he never came near me.</p>
<p>Q. How soon after this did you see him again, you say this was on the Saturday. - A. I think it was the Tuesday following he came and saw the horse's eye, or the Wednesday, I am not sure which; it was in the following week he came, and rid up to the door
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290019"/>and said he would call and pay me for the horse in the evening.</p>
<p>Q. How long was it after this happened that you actually took him up. - A. It was three weeks.</p>
<p>Q. Then if the money had been brought to you it would have been all well. - A. Mr. Conant told him at the office that if he brought the money all would be well then.</p>
<p>Q. Would you have consented to that. - A. Yes. He told the magistrate he never intended to pay for it.</p>

<p>Daley's Defence. I was going to market, I met this young woman, and on going to market I met a duffer in the street that had some handkerchiefs, I took a liking to them and I bought them; coming from market I came up Long Acre, this gentleman followed me and took me a prisoner.</p>

I cannot positively swear, they are of course the same, there is one of them I had, it is the same which was marked in the window, which is the one I have with me now; we had one that the lamp overflowed in the window and spoiled a great many things; I recollect a lamp that overflowed and the oil fell on some silk handkerchiefs, that handkerchief was put up and was not shewn to any other person after the young man came in and let me know it. I recollect having the pattern of this piece when I shewed it to them.</p>

<p>Q. What part of the Strand. - A. Near Southampton street, and on the opposite side of the way; after walking some time, and feeling myself incommoded by this man, I looked at him once or twice; afterwards the witness

<p>Q. Had you said any thing before to the prisoner in the Strand. - A. Not a word; when the witness told me that my pocket was picked, I put my hand into my pocket and missed a handkerchief.</p>
<p>Q. How was your pocket. - A. Behind, similar to this, and part of my handkerchief was laying out, I had just put it in my pocket, I had been wiping my face, being very warm, just before I had seen him;
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290021"/>I turned round and saw the prisoner running away, I immediately followed him, and I saw him throw the handkerchief from him in the street, by a cart; I got up to him, I accused him of stealing my handkerchief, he denied it, I immediately took him to Bow-street, he was committed.</p>
<p>Q. What became of the handkerchief. - A. The handkerchief was picked up by a boy, who gave it me; I know nothing of the boy, I have not seen him since; I saw the boy pick it up.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that the handkerchief which you saw the boy pick up was the same handkerchief that you saw the prisoner throw on the ground. - A. To the best of my knowledge it was, I cannot swear to the handkerchief because there is no mark to it.</p>
<p>Q. Can you swear that the same handkerchief that you saw the prisoner throw on the ground was the same that you saw the boy pick up. - A. Yes, the same.</p>
<p>Q. Well, that is what I ask you; did you perceive the prisoner push against you at that side of your coat. - A. I felt him some few minutes before I missed my handkerchief treading on my heels, I thought it was by accident; the people passing and repassing, I thought he could not avoid it.</p>
<p>Q. What was done with the handkerchief. - A. The handkerchief was given to me, I kept it in my hand all the time.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got it here. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got that handkerchief that was picked up. - A. It has been to be washed with others, I cannot pretend to say it is the same.</p>
<p>Q. How careless. - A. I did not know it was of any consequence.</p>
<p>Q. Was it a new handkerchief, or had it been wore. - A. I had it some time.</p>
<p>Q. You are not sure the one you produce is the same. - A. No, I am not sure, because none of them that I have are marked; I did not know it was of consequence so I did not retain the particular one.</p>
<p>Q. Were they all of the same age. - A. The handkerchiefs were all of the same age.</p>
<p>Q. How far had he ran before you over took him. - A. About fifteen or twenty paces.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Reynolds.</p>
<p>Q. You say this handkerchief was an old one, you had it a long time, it would not fetch much if it was sold. - A. It would but fetch a trifle if it was sold.</p>
<p>Q. You put the handkerchief into the side pocket of a new coat as they now make them, an handkerchief might easily fall out. - A. Certainly it might.</p>
<p>Q. You are not certain that you had put it intirely in. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Then it might have fell, and this man might have picked it up. - A. I cannot say that he did not, the boy was just before me, stooping for the handkerchief, as I sprang to lay hold of the man.</p>
<p>Q. However, it might have dropped down; if you had kept that handkerchief and looked at it now, you could not positively swear to the handkerchief - A. No, I could not, because I had no mark to it.</p>
<p>Q. And the handkerchief I see is a very common one. - A. It is a very common one.</p>
<p>JOHN JOHNSON sworn. Q. On the 7th of October were you in the Strand. - A. I cannot ascertain the day of the month, it was the day of Lord Percy's election; I was coming up the Strand.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) This was the day of the election. - A. Yes, the people was standing at the duke of Northumberland's house as I came by.</p>
<p>Q.(to Johnson.) Whereabouts was you then. - A. I think I was nearly opposite Covent Garden, of the opposite side of the way, I saw this gentleman, Mr. Pritchard, walk very fast on the pavement.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the prisoner at that time. - A. I saw a person following Mr. Pritchard very closely.</p>
<p>Q. Who was that person that was following Mr. Pritchard very closely. - A. He was a total stranger to me.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know him. - A. I cannot say it was the man at the bar.</p>
<p>Q. Was it the man that was afterwards taken to the public office. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean, you say you saw a person following him very closely, was that the same person that was afterwards laid hold off - A. I think it was.</p>
<p>Q. You yourself went to the public office, did you not go to give your evidence. - A. Yes, I gave my evidence there.</p>
<p>Q. What did you see this person do, whoever he was, that was taken to the public office. - A. This person, or Mr. Pritchard, run against me, and hit me on the shoulder, I saw Mr. Pritchard pass on with the handkerchief hanging out in this manner (a corner hanging out), it was visible to every body; I had not got above three or four yards when I saw Mr. Pritchard's pocket empty; I saw a man huddling a handkerchief up in this manner. (witness describing it.)</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any thing at the time it was taken from the pocket. - A. I only saw the handkerchief out of the pocket.</p>
<p>Q. You saw the man with the handkerchief in his hand, did you not see him draw it out of his pocket. - A. I cannot pretend to say directly that I saw him take it out of Mr. Pritchard's pocket, I saw it not a foot from his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. Then you did not see him take it from Mr. Pritchard's pocket. - A. I did not, I only saw it in his hand, and at that time there was no handkerchief hanging out of Mr. Pritchard's pocket, and directly after I saw the handkerchief in the man's hand, I informed Mr. Pritchard of it, I tapped him on the shoulder, sir, says I, you have had your pocket picked, the man after that turned back and ran off as fast as he could.</p>
<p>Q. How near was the man to Mr. Pritchard when you tapped him on the shoulder. - A. About a couple of yards, I passed the man to tell Mr. Pritchard, and in the mean time the man drew back, and endeavoured to make his escape; when I turned to see what became of the man, I pointed to Mr. Pritchard, and said there goes the man, Mr. Pritchard pursued him and laid hold of him; I did not see the handkerchief again till it was in Mr. Pritchard's hand; I accompanied Mr. Pritchard and the young man to Bow-street.</p>
<p>Q.(to prosecutor) Was the man that you stopped the same man that the witness had pointed out to
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180610290022"/>you as having your handkerchief. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was that man the prisoner. - A. That was the man, I never lost sight of him from the time he pointed him out to me till the time I took him.</p>
<p>Q. Are you able to say who was the person that followed you so and trod on your heels. - A. I thought it was the same man, I cannot exactly say it was.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have nothing more to say than I am a painter and glazier by trade; that on the day this affair took place I was so much intoxicated, in fact I cannot tell any thing what passed; I had been to work at six o'clock in the morning, I went home at eight o'clock in the morning to breakfast after getting some money of my master; I met a few friends, I got drinking till I got into the Strand, and whether I ran against this gentleman I do not know; as to the handkerchief being in my hand it was not.</p>
<p>The prisoner called three witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

I told him that I could not very well weigh it, he must leave it; he said that he particularly came to town to get money for some clothes that he owed for, he said if you cannot weigh it guess at it; this of course made my suspicion stronger.</p>

<p>- COLES sworn. I am guard to the Manchester waggon, I was in Aldersgate street when I last saw these things.</p>
<p>Q. A little before nine in the evening. - A. Yes, I was of the side of the waggon, I saw a man behind the waggon, I went behind the waggon, and I saw the prisoner in the waggon; I asked the man that was following the waggon what he wanted, he said nothing, I told him I supposed he did, or else he would not be so close to the tail of the waggon; then he drawed away, I took my opportunity and got up the ladder, and caught this man in the waggon.</p>
<p>Q. You took the prisoner in the waggon. - A. Yes, I ta'en a man in the waggon.</p>
<p>Q. That is the man is it. - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. What had he done in the waggon. - A. He cut the hamper string that hung the hamper hooks to the waggon, I put my foot on the ladder as it hung up behind, and laid hold of his collar; then he got down out of the waggon, and the hamper fell out before him. The hamper was tied inside of the waggon.</p>
<p>Q. You took him in custody, you are sure he is the same man. - A. I am sure it is the same man, and that is the hamper that was inside the waggon.</p>
<p>- ROBINSON sworn. I am an officer of Aldersgate ward. On the 27th of this month, about a quarter before nine, the prisoner was committed to my charge, I took him to the Poultry counter; I produce the hamper.</p>

<p>Q. How came this hamper to tumble out before you. - A. He said the hamper ropes were cut, I had not a knife about me.</p>
