<p>Q. Who did he say it was a bad shilling to - A. To the person that tendered it, as I considered it, that induced me to come out of the parlour; I saw the prisoner and I knew him; at that time Mr. Ray had got hold of him by the arm; we took him into the parlour.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. When I put the shilling down on the table, I did not mean to give it him at all; I was putting my hand into my pocket to take some halfpence out to give him for the glass of ale; before I could get my hand in my pocket Mr. Ray and Kennedy seized both my hands; the landlord never moved it from where it was, at the other end of the table, till they had searched me.</p>
<p>COURT. Do you mean to say it laid on the table all the time - A. Yes, it never was moved till they moved it to him; nor was I ever moved from there into the parlour; I was searched upon the very spot, and when he offered me the change of this shilling, they took it out of his hand back again; I did not, receive it.</p>
<p>Q. to Hargrave. We have understood from your evidence that he gave the shilling into your hand, that you threw it down on the table - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. So that you are very confident that he gave you the shilling in payment of the ale, and you returned him the sixpence and the fourpence - A. Yes; he afterwards dropped the sixpence.</p>

After he had put the copper into his breeches he went out into the street; I told my father, and my father followed him and brought him back; he came along the yard, and my father catched the bolt copper as he was going to deliver it.</p>

<p>Q. Did you on the 1st of October, in consequence of what your son told you, go after the prisoner - A. Yes, between eight and nine o'clock in the morning, I overlook him in St. John's square, Clerkenwell, about four or five hundred yards from my house; I brought him back to my own house; as soon as he got into the premises he made a run to the place where he had put his coat on to the lower shop; there he attempted to deliver the piece of bolt copper; I saw him take it out of his breeches; he attempted to throw it down; I caught his hand, in the scuffle it fell to the ground; but I felt it in his hands and saw it; I took it up myself; this is the piece of copper; I can swear to it being mine. Here it a nick in it here, and being half sawed off, and then broken off, I know it by that; I am sure it is my property. I had it of the copper company the day before; I had two hundred weight and a half to be worked up, for the company.</p>
<p>Q. Had you observed these marks the day before - A. No; I observed it when he took it out of his breeches.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He did not buy that copper of the company, he had it off a Jew that brings him stolen copper sometimes.</p>
<p>Q. to Frost, junior. Is that the same sort of shape and sized copper that he put into his breeches - A. It is.</p>

<p>Q. to Mrs. Frost. That boy says in his defence, that you having missed some copper you suspected him, and that you had him searched by a constable; that after being searched nothing was found upon him; he was

<p>Q. He says that after being searched by a constable, he was allowed to go as far as St. John's square - A. He was allowed to go as far as St. John's square; the constable came afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. When he was brought back, he thought some pieces of copper were laying there like that which you lost, and he picked it up - was that the case - A. No; there were no pieces of copper in that room, except that piece of copper I caught in his hand as it was tumbling down.</p>
<p>Q. to Frost, junior. On the 1st of October, the day you have been speaking of, had the prisoner been searched by any constable before he went out - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was you in the lower shop at the time he was brought in with this piece of copper - A. I was in the yard, just behind my father.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see your father take the copper from him - A. Yes, I was just in the entry of the door way of the lower shop.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see where the piece of copper came from, immediately before your father took it from him - A. I saw it in his hand: my father make a snap at it; it fell down on the ground.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see it come out of his breeches - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him stoop to pick up any thing off the ground before your father made a snatch at it - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any copper in the place where your father took the copper from him; was there any copper lying on the ground for him to pick up - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Was a constable sent for afterwards - A. Yes.</p>

On the 23d of September, about seven in evening, or a little after, I was going up to Mr. Price's for work, and the prisoner was standing looking in at the window; the shopman was preparing to light the candles; when I got up to the shop door, he walked in before, he asked the shopman to look at an umbrella; another gentleman came in the shop; the umbrella was shewn him before the other gentleman came in; the gentleman bought an umbrella, and gave the shopman the money; he went back for change; I went backwards in the warehouse; the warehouse is beyond the shop, at the back of a parlour.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the gentleman buy an umbrella - A. No, but the shopman came backwards for change of Mrs. Price, saying that the gentleman had bought an umbrella.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any thing of the prisoner at his going out - A. No; I came in the shop before the gentleman that had bought the umbrella had left it, when the shopman came forward with the change.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner in the shop then - A. No, he was gone; the gentleman was there that had bought the other umbrella; the gentleman asked if the prisoner came in with an umbrella in his hand; I knowing that he did not, I said no. Mrs. Price asked me to go after the prisoner. I went down Temple bar and through Fleet street; the gentleman said he went that way; and when I came to Water lane in Fleet street, I saw the prisoner going with an umbrella in his hand, he was walking; I stopped him, and told him he must come back along with me; he said I was mistaken in his person; when I told him where he had got the umbrella, he came with me back as far as Temple lane, and there he ran away from me; I followed him and catched him again; he had the umbrella with him when I caught him. I brought him back to the shop, he brought the umbrella in the shop and laid it on the back of the counter. Mr. Price took it up and the prisoner was secured; we called a coach and took him to Bow street directly.</p>
<p>Q. to Price You have got an umbrella in your hand, were you in the shop when the prisoner was brought back - A. I was. When he came in he had this umbrella; I took him in the warehouse, he laid it down, I took it up, it has never been out of my possession since.</p>
<p>Q. Can you say whether that umbrella had been in the shop any part of that day - A. It had been in the shop window for sale.</p>
<p>Q. You did not mix the umbrella which the prisoner brought in with the other umbrellas - A. No; it is a silk umbrella; I valued it at ten shillings; it is worth double. When the prisoner was brought in with the umbrella he begged for mercy, and wished to serve his majesty, which I was anxious he should, but the magistrate thought proper to bind me over.</p>
<p>Q. to Smith. You are very sure that the man that you met with the umbrella was the man that came in the shop - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Should you have known him had you overtaken him without an umbrella in his hand - A. I particularly observed him when I got up to him, before I went into the shop.</p>
<p>The prisoner said nothing in his defence, nor called any witnesses to character.</p>

<p>Q. After it is decanted you cement the cork - A. We do, with wax, rosin, and oil.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got some of the remainder of these bottles here - A. I have.</p>
<p>Q. Have you compared the cement of the one with the other, does it correspond - A. I have not the least doubt but they are part of the same quantity.</p>
<p>Q. You went to the Compter to see the prisoner - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. Did you make him any promise at all - A. He would not say any thing in the presence of the officer; he desired the officer to walk out; he went of one side. He then said he hoped I would not be severe, or something to that effect, and that it was the first time; he observed there were no marks on them; I told him if he would attone for his crime by a confession of his accomplice, I would be lenient; he replied he would.</p>
<p>COURT. Then we must not hear what he said after that.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. I never had any thought of doing any thing of the kind, nor did I ever do any thing of the kind.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

<p>The property produced and identified.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My lord, and gentlemen of the jury - I stand at the bar completely innocent of the charge alledged against me. On the evening it is said the robbery was committed, I was going to spend the evening with my sister, who is a servant to a respectable tradesman at Charing Cross. The prosecutor said I had robbed him; at the same instant I was walking along a gentleman kicked his foot against the handkerchief; the gentleman seeing a mob walked on; the prosecutor claimed the handkerchief; and although I know myself innocent, I was dragged to the watch-house.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180811260009"/>I am indicted in London, which I am told is wrong, the robbery was done in Middlesex. Gentleman I am a poor young man, a hatter by trade, now a private in the London Militia; and for some time I have been the only support of an aged father; but I now am at a loss for money and friends to assist me; I therefore hope and flatter myself that this real statement of my case will have every possible weight upon your minds to prove my innocence.</p>
<p>Q. to prosecutor. You say your pocket was picked before you got through the bar - A. Yes, it was done under the bar; I had got through the bear when I discovered that I had lost the handkerchief; I saw the handkerchief in the prisoner's hand.</p>

On Thursday evening the 20th of October, a little past nine o'clock in the evening, as the prisoner was about leaving the house, I called him back for the purpose of giving him some old clothes; he pulled off his great coat, and from the curious manner in which he pulled off his great coat, and laid it down in the dark, some suspicion arose in my mind that all was not right. After he had tried these clothes on, as he was putting on the great coat again. I took the liberty of feeling the pockets, in which I discovered two bottles of wine; I said, Richard, what have you got here; nothing, sir, he said; I said that must be a mistake, and if you please we will see what it is; I then took the two bottles out of his pocket; I held one in each hand, I said Richard, what is this; he said, sir, it is sherry wine that he had been bottling, and begged for mercy; I called up a person into the room where he was; I told him I found the prisoner robbing me, and desired him to remain in the room, to see that he did not make his escape; I locked them both in; I went and got an officer; I gave the prisoner in charge of the officer, and when he was taken to the watch-house they there found two more bottles in his breeches, which I had not discovered; I then proceeded with the officer to his lodgings; where after a little objection from his wife, he searched his house; he found three bottles of red port, part of a bottle of rum, and a bottle of brandy.</p>

I went to the bar directly and gave them a glass of gin apiece; then I went home with the prisoner to her apartment.</p>
<p>Q. How far was it from this public house - A. It was a very few doors. I went into her apartment with her, I agreed to sleep with her all night; I did; I asked her if she chused to have any thing more to drink before she went to bed; she said she would take a little drop more liquor; after I had been in bed an hour I awoke, I heard a noise below, I found the person that was by the side of me gone.</p>
<p>Q. You found the prisoner gone - A. Yes; I directly found my watch gone, a one pound note and three shillings in silver; they had been in my breeches under my pillow.</p>
<p>Q. Had you put your breeches there when you went to rest - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. She got away without disturbing you - A. Yes. When I missed these things I immediately got up and dressed myself; I put my hand into my coat pocket to feel for my silk handkerchief, that was gone and half a crowns worth of halfpence that was tied up in an old silk handkerchief; the old silk handkerchief was left behind; the silk handkerchief that I had about my neck was gone; I went down and saw a watchman in the street, I asked him who kept that house; he said he would go in and see.</p>
<p>Q. Were you sober - A. I was not intoxicated in liquor but so as I knew what I was about.</p>
<p>Q. How lately before you went to bed had you seen your money in your pocket - A. Before I went into bed the woman was undressing herself in the room; at the same time my watch was in my breeches.</p>
<p>Q. Was there a light in the room when you found the prisoner gone - A. No, but the watchman came up with me, and with his light I locked over the bed and the room; the watchman advised me to go home. I went down Broad street to go home; the first person that I met was the prisoner in company with a young woman and a young man; the man flew away from the prisoner; I laid hold of the prisoner, the other young woman tried to shove me off; I called the watchman immediately and he came up: I told him of the prisoner; he took her and searched her.</p>

The prosecutor described the maker's name, it fully answered to the description; Emery is the maker's name.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. When this young man came up to me, he said he had not much money; he said he would go home with me; he said never mind, I have some property to leave with you till the morning. I wanted something to drink; I went down, and when I went down he followed me and stopped me. The beadle said if I had any thing to give it him; I gave him the watch.</p>

On my coming out of the house, I stopped at the corner of the street to make water; the prisoner came up to me and asked me to go home with her; I told her I would not, I was going on board; she shoved back a step or two and came up to me the second time, and said I had better go home with her; I told her I would not and shoved her away with my hands; she came and put her hands into my side jacket pocket, and while I was buttoning my breeches up she made off. It was a short jacket, I had my surtout coat over it; she took my pocket book out of my pocket and run away.</p>
<p>Q. What was there in that pocket book - A. Three one pound notes and a five pound note; upon her running away I ran after her; she run through a passage and shut one or two doors after her but they would not keep fast, she run into a necessary, I got hold of her and told her she had got my pocket book; she said she knew nothing of me; a number of Irishmen and Jews and women came round me and asked me what was the matter; I told them she had got my pocket book; they asked me what I was going to do with the woman; I told them I insisted upon having my pocket book. I had then fast hold of her by the arm; they told me to let her go for I would break her arm; after they found that I would not let her go they got some of one side of me and some of another; some of them pulled me and others shoved me, and rescued her from me; I told my shipmate,

I went to bed about eight o'clock; I was tired.</p>
<p>Q. When did you last see the horse - A. About seven o'clock I saw it; about six o'clock I brought it home.</p>
<p>Q. Did you fasten the door then - A. I go out of the dwelling house into the stable; that door was bolted in the morning.</p>
<p>Q. When did you miss the horse - A. I was awaked in the morning by my dog about four o'clock; he was barking; I ran down stairs, I did not give myself time to put my clothes on, I thought something was amiss by the dog barking; when I came down I found the stable door broken to pieces, and the horse gone; I immediately ran up stairs again and dressed myself; I live about thirty yards from the road. I ran up the road to get intelligence if I could; I met three men going angling in the country; I enquired of them; they told me they had met a man with a large horse, he was trotting him as hard as he could, they could not see the colour of him, he had two white legs behind; I run on further about a quarter of a mile towards town; I met

<p>Q. Was Cook on horseback - A. No, on foot. He turned back with me, and I went on till I got to Hammersmith, and at the Plough and Harrow I ran by the horse; I jumped off the pathway into the road, and told him to stop, he had got my property; he said what did I mean by that, it was not mine, he would let me know that I was wrong, and that I had no business with it; I told him that I would have him and told him to get off; he would not get off; I told him I would have him, he had got my property that was delivered into my charge; I jumped up and catched him by the collar, and pulled him off; Cook was just at the back of me, he took hold of the horse just when I pulled him off.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that horse that you found him upon was the same horse that had been in your stable the night before - A. I am sure of it.</p>
<p>Q. You had observed his marks - A. I could swear to him by one mark at his nose; the near side of his nostrils is cut through, by what I do not know; I am certain sure of the horse, if only by the foot and nothing else; it had the canker in the foot; I am in the habit of curing the canker. I took the man, and held him till the watchman came up, and then I helped to put him into the round house, and then I took the horse and put him into my stable again.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. About seven o'clock I left London, I went down as far as Brentford after some things of mine that were at a pawnbroker's. Going from Brentford I stopped drinking till after twelve o'clock; I asked the landlord of the Running Horse public house if I could have a bed there, as I was forward in liquor; the landlord said he would go to his mistress and ask her if he had a bed vacant; he came back and said his beds were all full; I proceeded on the high road for London; I was so very drunk I fell asleep on the road; I had these clothes that I released out of the pawnbrokers, in a large bundle along with me; I slept till rather after three o'clock in the morning; I got up and was coming along the road; a man had this horse with him, he said I seemed to be in liquor; I said I was; he asked me what part of London I was going to, I told him I was going as far as the beginning of Holborn, where I worked; he said he was coming very handy to there, if I would pay him I should ride; I told him I would pay him for riding to London; he put me upon the horse and carried my bundle. I was not in custody of the horse above ten minutes, when these people pursued me; the man who gave me the horse he got away from me; I never missed him, being in liquor; he took my clothes along with him. When the man came up to me and asked me what business I had with the horse, I told him that I had paid for riding the horse to London.</p>
<p>Q. You did not tell him it was not his property, and he had no business with it - A. No, I told him no such thing.</p>

On the 5th of October, about half past eight in the evening, I was passing up Charlotte street, Fitzroy square, I observed the prisoner and another man look into Mr. Browning's shop; there was a lamp in the shop; the prisoner got his foot on the threshold, the other man was standing near him, and as I saw no one in the shop, I had suspicion that he was going to rob it; I walked a few doors higher up and watched him. I saw the prisoner go in; in about half a minute he came out and ran across the way and gave the geese to the other man.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see how many he had - A. I did not know how many he had, he gave him all he had, it appeared to me to be two; it being very dark, and I stood at a great distance from him, I could distinguish it was a goose or two.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe him when he came out of the shop to have any thing - A. I observed him have these two geese in his right hand, they both ran across the way, I followed them up Windmill street; they stopped in this street at a door and laughed very much; after stooping down for a short time they walked away again and went up Tottenham court road; I kept the opposite side; they walked to the corner of Bedford street, there was a watchbox at the corner and a watchman in it; I told the watchman two men had just passed who had robbed a shop in Charlotte street, and asked him to come with me; he instantly did, and we followed them up Bedford street, they turned into Bedford square, crossed and was in deep conversation; when they saw the watchman with his lanthorn and me coming, they parted; the watchman seized one of them instantly.</p>
<p>Q. Who was that he seized - A. The one that got away; I told him the prisoner was the other, he took him into custody; the man that got away dropped the geese the moment we came up to him, I picked them up. I am certain the prisoner is the man which I saw go into the shop and bring out the geese; I never lost sight of him from the time I first observed him. I carried the geese to the watchhouse and the watchman took the prisoner; I sent to inform Mr. Browning instantly afterwards. When the geese were dropped they then were tied up in an apron, I opened it at the watchhouse, I saw it contained two geese; when they stooped in Windmill street it was for the purpose as I suppose of tying them up in the apron; they were not tied up in an apron when they came out of the shop.</p>
<p>THOMAS SYKES. I am a watchman at the corner of Bedford street.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember, Mr. Jones, the last witness applying to you - A. Yes; about a minute before I saw two men go by, in passing they wiped my box, one of them had a white bundle on his back, the other had nothing; they walked close together; Mr. Jones asked me whether I saw two men go by; I said, yes; he said come along directly, they have been stealing some geese. I went with him directly, I saw them again before they crossed into the square; he shewed me the two men and said these are them.</p>
<p>Q. Where they the same two men that had passed you - A. Yes; I got him by the collar that had the bundle on his back, he let the bundle drop, and he gave a sudden jerk from me and ran away; Mr. Jones picked up the the geese and said do not run after him, this is the man that went into the shop; I laid hold then of the prisoner and took him to the watchhouse. The geese were delivered to the constable of the night.</p>
<p>Q. to Browning. You went to the watchhouse and saw the geese - A. Yes, the constable of the night had them in his possession, I had the geese afterwards; I described the mark to the constable before it was shewn me; I have no doubt at all of their being my property.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was coming down Tottenham court road, I met two men at the corner of Windmill street, one of them had a bundle, he asked me the way to Holborn; I told him I was going that away and if he would go along with me I would shew him; one of the men walked on before at a good distance, I walked along with the man with the bundle into Bedford square. The watchman laid hold of the man with the bundle; the man rescued himself away from him; so I stood by all the while with several other persons; the gentleman picked up the bundle; he said to the watchman, pointing out me, lay hold of that man, he is one of them; he laid hold of me and took me to the watchhouse.</p>
<p>The prisoner called four witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

When my master missed the draft I went after him by master's orders; I came up with him at the Seven Stars in Pepper alley, by London bridge; I asked him to come over with me to Eastcheap, his master wanted him about some business; he seemed to object against it at first, and then he said he would go; he came back with me as far as the foot of the bridge, and then he told me he would not go without having one pot of beer with me; I told him I would have one pot of beer with him, if he was willing to go then; he said yes; he called for a pot of beer and paid for it and sat down; I sat outside of the table, he laid his hat down on the table, and said he wanted to go out; I followed him out, he went in the little alley there; as I saw him there I turned in again to tell another man, in case he was going to make his escape, to assist me; I was not above two or three minutes before I turned out; he was gone; he had left his hat, and I left it in the same place and went after him. I never saw him till he was apprehended the next day.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. My lord, and gentlemen of the jury, I am a labouring man, and all the summer I had very good employment; I had a good situation while the fleets were in; I had one pound, two shillings, and sixpence a week, I worked but eight hours in a day, at the West India Docks. I had it in my power to save half a guinea a week, and sometimes seven shillings. When I could not get no more employ in the docks, I applied to the board of ordinance. I wanted to save a few pounds to go to my mother's, and on my being informed I could not work above another week at the ordinance, I applied to Mr. Piper. On the Friday morning I came to his yard; I was not in his house, only when I came to ask for employment. On the beginning of the week I did call, and was sent down to the yard; it is two streets beyond Mr. Pipe's dwelling house; I came in my shirt sleeves from the Tower. Mr. Piper told me I might go to work immediately; I went back to the Tower and worked till dinner time; I told my foreman I had got work of my former master; he told me I might go and he would pay me; after dinner time I went to Mr. Piper's and was set to work, and in unloading of stones I hurt my back, and worked no more that day. - I was not near the premises since. On the Saturday I went to the Tower to my old shopmates; I had a little porter with them. I went home to my old lodgings, to one of Mr. Piper's men; I came to the Seven Stars, Pepper alley: Sculley came, I said I should like to have some beer as it is Saturday night; I called for a pot of beer and did not pay for it; I went to the chandler's shop at the corner for some bread and cheese, and when I came back Sculley was gone. Coming up Fenchurch street on Sunday I found a five pounds note: I changed it, and had three one pound notes part in change. I saw Mr. Piper's man, he told me Mr. Piper had been enquiring for me; I was going to Bear Quay. The rest of the money was my own.</p>

I asked him the description of the parcel, begging him to come farther in the passage, I would get the parcel if it was there; he did not give me a satisfactory answer to that and several questions I put to him; I bid the girl shut the door; he stood with his feet in such a position that the child could not shut the door; he said, he hoped for God's sake I would give him the parcel, he should lose his place, and he employed it for the sake of his wife and family. Upon several questions which I put to him he could not describe the parcel which I had seen, when I peremptorily told the child to shut the door; at that moment he made a run from the door, I shoved the child back and pushed out, and with the candle in my hand I pursued him and cried stop thief; he took down Wood street, turned down Love lane, made a small turn to the right, and then to the left into Love lane again, where he was taken; I never lost sight of him; I once laid hold of his coat. I am positive he is the man.</p>

On the 12th of October, a little before eleven at night, I heard a call out of stop thief; I immediately ran up stairs; finding one door open on the stairs, that had no lock, and the other door which had a lock and chain round it broken and open also, on looking in I missed a rump of beef and two fowls; I immediately crossed the way, hearing a noise, towards Dyer's buildings; I met the prisoner in the possession of a gentleman, I immediately catched hold of the prisoner also, and brought him back to the foot of my stairs; the prisoner cried out I am not the man; presently the gentleman said you are the man, and you have broken my mouth, see whether he has not got something about him; I called my boy to see whether there was any fowl down on the ground; I looked and saw no fowl on the ground; that minute a fowl was picked up just by the prisoner's feet by the witness who catched the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180811260020"/>prisoner, and he hit him across the face with it; I immediately got the watchman and gave him in charge; I asked the witness to stop with him while I went down to get my hat; I walked slowly down behind them; I was about twenty yards from the watchhouse door when they let the prisoner go, I heard a voice say stop thief by two or three; I immediately ran into the road to see which way he had taken, he ran by me up Holborn, I turned and ran after him, he turned up Hatton Garden; I made a spring and hit him on the head with my fist, he tumbled; the watchman was running down, hearing the rattle spring; he tumbled over him, knocked me down; as I fell I turned round on my side and catched hold of the prisoner's leg till the watchman got up; we took him in custody again to the watchhouse.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure it is the same man that you saw at your cellar - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure the minute before you looked and saw no fowl at all - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gleed. You had not seen this man down in the cellar at all - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Had you been out this day - A. I had been to market. I always take the meat out myself upon all occasion, except I am out, then I cut steaks and leave in the lobby till I am at home. I had seen the beef five minutes before.</p>
<p>Q. At the time the man was brought back was there a number of persons about him - A. There was one of one side of him and one of the other.</p>
<p>Q. Therefore from which the fowl dropped you cannot tell - A. My witness will tell.</p>
<p>Q. This man, when he was before the magistrate was sent on board the tender, yet you have preferred your indictment - A. Yes.</p>

I was coming down Holborn about a quarter before eleven on the 12th of October, I perceived six or seven, or more, men in a cluster, they were a little divided; I paused for a little while whether I should go on, thinking I was beset; I perceived a man go down the steps and put his hand into the larder, he took two fowls up by the two legs extremely leisurely and participated into the street rather sneakingly.</p>
<p>Q. What did he do with the beef - A. There were enough to take the beef, the beef was gone before. He took the fowls rather sneakingly and went into the street; when I advanced forward and asked him what he and with the man's fowls; he made no answer but run; his partner made a blow at me and cut me here; when I turned round after the man I returned the compliment; I ran after the prisoner, he took across Holborn and up Dyer's buildings; he returned back, there being no avenue up the buildings; on seeing him return down again I made a stop; at that moment as he was just at the point of my fingers I felt a violent blow from another man whom I did not see till the moment, which brought me to the ground; at that time there were several people assembled and he was got just round the corner of the court.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure this is the same man - A. I am positive, I had sufficient view of him through the side of the larder; I took him across the way with the assistance of a person, I was met by the person who gave his evidence last.</p>
<p>Q. You went to the cellar with him - A. I did, and there I picked up a fowl from between his legs, which I judged he had dropped: he had thrown a fowl prior to that at me.</p>
<p>Q.You did not see him drop it - A. No, I felt something by my feet.</p>
<p>Q. You did not drop it - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. He had thrown one fowl at you - A. Yes; that was at my first start before he was got to the watch-house: there was a set of them who made the watchman fall, who rescued him; the man that particularly rescued him, I took, and had the watchmen done their duty more of them would have been taken. One of the watchmen on seeing me so bloody, said, I had enough of it, he had no notion of being cut.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Gleed. It was in the night time when you was coming down Holborn; you saw several persons - A. Yes; they were all ragamuffins like himself.</p>
<p>Q. Then when the man went down stairs his back was towards you - A, No; he went down as crabs walk, side ways; if he had tried to make his face conspicuous he could not have done it more, the light shined fully upon it.</p>
<p>COURT. What became of the fowl - A. After I had picked it up I gave it to the prosecutor.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. It was one of my own fowls; I took it before the lord mayor at the mansion house; I am sure it was my own, it was my own trussing.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. On the evening that I am charged with the robbery I had been in Chancery lane spending the evening with a few friends; I passed through Chancery lane into Dyer's buildings, and when I came to the end of Dyer's buildings the gentleman dragged me over the way; that gentleman swore that I was the person and that he saw me at the larder; I told him he was wrong; when the watchman had got me in his possession, his mouth was bleeding, and several people said at the watchhouse I was not the person and they pushed me away.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. After I was convicted at this bar my friends petitioned to colonel Frazier for my pardon; colonel Frazier got me a free pardon, it was not a conditional pardon. I after that went into the loyal York rangers, that afterwards went to Trinidad in the West Indies; I had liberty to go on shore at Portsmouth to see some of my comrades, but staying on shore too long I was afraid of being punished by the regiment, and by his Majesty's proclamation every deserter was to be accepted on board as a deserter; captain Read of Woolwich, can prove I had his Majesty's free pardon.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180811260022"/>thing was missing - A. I made no search at half past four. She had a bundle in her apron, and I thought she had been looking for it. When I came home I searched and missed my money she did not return that night; at eight o'clock the next morning she came in and sat down; I said to her Mrs. Glover give me the money you took from under my bed; she said I am deaf, I am hard of hearing; I said if you are deaf I will send for an officer; Ray came and made her hear; she said she did not know any thing about it; I said who have you let in to rob me while I was out; I got up in a passion out of the chair, she pulled me down in the chair again, put her hand into her pocket and took out two shillings and threepence and put it in my lap; says she that is all I have, I will pay you by the week or month when I get in place; she wanted me to make a debt of the robbery; I said I would not make a debt of it at all.</p>
<p>Q. Did you mention the sum you had lost - A. I did, three pounds seven shillings and sixpence; I mentioned what dollars I had lost; a seven shilling piece and half a guinea. Then Mr. Ray came; before he came she opened her box and put on velvet shoes, and dressed herself very fine, I never saw a stitch of them before; while I was at the dispensary she went to the pawnbrokers and got these things in.</p>

I am an officer of Worship street, Shoreditch; I was sent to take this prisoner in custody upon Tuesday; when I went to the prosecutrixs house I found the prisoner there; she begged for mercy, and stated that she had robbed her, and the moment she got in service she would return the money to her.</p>
<p>Q. Was the old woman by then - A. She was.</p>
<p>Q. Did the old woman state what she had lost - A. Yes, eight dollars, a seven shilling piece, and a half guinea.</p>
<p>Q. Was it in answer to that statement of the old woman, that she had this loss, that this answer was given - that she would make it up when she got in service - A. It was; I examined what they call the ticking, which the old woman has got here, where the hole has been cut.</p>

<p>The prisoner called one witness, who gave her a good character.</p>
