<p>Q. Where did you put your breeches - A. I put them on the bed with the watch in them; I awoke between seven and eight o'clock in the morning, the prisoner was gone; I searched my breeches pocket; my watch, and my handkerchief I took off my neck was gone. I had a seven shilling piece and some silver; the seven shilling piece was gone; four shillings had dropped on the floor.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever find your property again - A. Yes. I found the watch at the pawnbrokers; I went to all the pawnbrokers I could, I gave them the maker's name and the number, for them to detain any person that offered to pledge it.</p>
<p>Q. Are you certain the prisoner is the woman - A. Yes.</p>

<p>Q. Was there more than one person - A.

<p>Q. Was the watch taken from you before you could attempt to lay hold of it, so as to prevent it from being taken from you - A. Yes, it was.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who the person was that did this - A. I do not, he ran away with great speed.</p>
<p>Q. Did you pursue - A. I did not, I perceived it was so far distant it was in vain; it was done so suddenly that I never saw the person's face that did it.</p>
<p>Q. When was it that you saw your watch again - A. It was brought to me on Tuesday morning by Trott the officer; this was done on Sunday at half after twelve o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know it to be your own watch - A. Certainly so. I afterwards attended at Hatton-garden office, I saw the prisoner, I had no recollection of his being the person, no further than by his size, not to speak to his person.</p>

I searched him, the watch was not found upon his person; I handcuffed him, and asked him what part of the house he occupied; he said a room up stairs; I told him to walk first and shew me the room; he went up one pair of stairs, he said this is my room; I said do you occupy any other, he said no; there was a bed in the room; I proceeded to search the room; there were no persons then in the room but me, Davis, and the prisoner, and while I was searching a woman of the name of Bosworth came up, the young woman he was going to be married to; she sat down in the chair and began crying, saying, Good God, what have you done (addressing herself to the prisoner); he made no reply, and she cried very much.

When we got in the room Trott shut the door, and proceeded to search the room; while he was searching a young woman came in the room, she sat down in a chair by the right hand side of the fire; she said what is the matter, addressing herself to the prisoner; the prisoner told her to be quiet, he did not know what was the matter, if he had done any thing that was wrong he would wish to be taken before a magistrate. I looked upon a shelf by the fire place; I took down a little bason; at the bottom of this bason was this watch, covered over with a rag and a little bit of worsted; there was enough to cover it. The moment I got this watch, I said to Mr. Trott here is what we came to look for; I delivered the watch to Mr. Trott; the prisoner said the woman is innocent, she knew nothing at all about it, I put it there myself, and I must suffer for it.

<p>Q. Was any of your property gone - A. Yes, about forty-five pounds in pence and halfpence; there was a great deal more. I can speak to forty-five pounds.</p>
<p>Q. Now just tell me in what manner the copper money was placed there - A Twenty-five pound was tied up in five-shilling parcels in paper; I lost gold and silver coin; we reckon that we take twenty five pounds in gold and silver, besides copper, in a week.</p>

There were eight one-pound bank notes, two mourning rings, one gold ring, and a family ring besides; we lost two time pieces, one of which was set in Derbyshire spar; we lost two bags, a tin box, a silver two-pence, a new shilling and a new sixpence.</p>

Another bag, these were in this bag as it is now, all on the floor, by the side of a large box; the contents of the second bag is seven pounds and eleven pence halfpenny in halfpence, and six shillings in penny pieces; they are in the same state now as they were then. The third bag, these were told out on a box from a heap and laid out in six-pences; these amount to about five pounds, and nineteen shillings in copper, penny-pieces and halfpence. This is the fourth parcel, it was on the floor in an apron or a wrapper, tied up, this amounts to two pounds nine shillings in penny-pieces, in halfpence, and two shillings and three pence in farthings; the fifth parcel, this was on the ground, in the handkerchief were seven shillings and sixpence in penny-pieces and one pound one shilling and three-pence halfpenny in halfpence in these brown papers, it appears to be broken; there are several pieces of brown paper, string and all. This bag contains a few farthings and a silver shilling, but I cannot say which bag was in; it was found in one of the bags. Here is another parcel, this little parcel was between the bed-clothes, it is a handkerchief, it contains two shillings and seven-pence in penny-pieces, seven shillings and six-pence in half-pence and ten farthings.

The men were all secured and taken to the magistrate. This is the wheel of the wheel-barrow; I had seen the track in several places. I secured this and brought it here.</p>

I found a quantity of penny-pieces and halfpence on a box, and in the box twelve pounds five shillings; I found eight pounds and fifteen shillings in halfpence, and three pounds ten shillings in penny-pieces, these are in five shilling papers; on searching the room below I found this guage rule, one of the joints is wanting. Vickrey found a crow, it was under the floor in a concealed place under the stairs; I took that crow to the prosecutors, I matched it to the window shutters and to the window frame; it exactly corresponded to these marks.</p>
<p>Q. Wherever a crow had been used to the breaking of the house it corresponded with the marks - A. It did; I have no doubt but with that crow the marks were made; I likewise fitted the marks in the bar, it corresponded with the marks in the drawers of the bar.</p>
<p>Q. Did Mr. Jones produce to you a joint of the guage rule - A. He did; which corresponded with this joint; I have matched it, it appears to me that that piece belongs to that rule, I have no doubt of it.</p>
<p>Mr. Walford. You say you have no doubt that crow found in this man's house was the crow that did break into that house - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And if any other crow corresponded so well you could speak so positive - A. I found the crow in the prisoner's house; it fitted exactly.</p>
<p>JOHN VICKREY. Q. You are also an officer belonging to Worship-street - A. I am.</p>
<p>Q. You went and your brother officers to this house in which you found Ware and the other prisoners - A. I went about two minutes afterwards, I was not with them at the time they went in; I found this copper in this cloth as I produce them now, ten shillings and ten pence in penny pieces, one pound nine shillings and two-pence halfpenny in halfpence and three-pence farthing in farthings, making all together two pounds and three-pence-farthing.</p>
<p>Q. Now describe where it was you found this - A. After seeing the money found by the officers, I went down stairs; there are only two rooms in the house; I went down stairs; I went into the lower room; in a cupboard to which there is a door opens under the stairs, there was a quantity of rubbish with the remains of some coals and some bricks intermixed together; I cleared some of that away and then I found the way underneath the floor of that bottom room; the floor was not laid to the ground by a foot or fifteen inches; I could not get under, I reached my arm in and discovered that cloth that I have been describing; I took it from under there with the contents tied up; after I had taken this out I proceeded further in the same place; I got this crow from underneat.</p>
<p>Q. Did you afterwards go and fit the crow - A. I went alone, and saw the prosecutor and his sister; I fitted the crow to all the inner places, the drawers and the cupboard, every place that was broken open; it fitted exactly; I found that the drawers had been done with one end of the crow and the cupboard with the other end; I called the prosecutor, he saw me fit the crow. At the office this dark lanthorn was produced, this bolt and this crow, by the prosecutor, I have had them ever since; this dark lanthorn has a piece of candle nearly burnt out, and this crow bar produced by the prosecutor was too large for the marks, it would have made a larger impression.</p>
<p>Q. to Jones. Where did you find the crow that you gave to Vickrey - A. This crow bar was found by the buildings where the drawer was found.</p>
<p>Vickrey. This bolt appears to have been taken off the shutter; it was given me by the prosecutor.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see any skins so marked at Hatton-garden - A. Yes, and that I swore to it there, and there is a reddle mark from the neck down to the chine, and then crossed; that is marked with oker and oil.</p>
<p>Q. Had the skin that you saw at Hatton-garden that mark with oker as well as
<persName id="t18090517-5-person140">W. M. </persName> - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Was the sheep that you lost a ewe or a wether - A. It was a pug lamb; a yearling ewe; to the best of my knowledge it was a ewe lamb.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that at the time you saw this skin it was one of your sheep - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner at the bar - A. No; I might have seen him on the common; I took no notice of him till I saw him at Hatton Garden.</p>
<p>Mr. Bolland. The initials of any man, W. M. would mark it the same way - A. No; there is no other name
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170009"/>on the common marked like that.</p>
<p>Q. I will ask you, whether there were any marks at all upon this skin - A. Yes; when I saw it the marks were visible and distinct, the pitch marks and likewise the reddle and oil.</p>
<p>THOMAS KIRBY. I live nigh the seven mile stone on Finchley common; some time the first week in April the prisoner came to my house.</p>
<p>Q. Had you known him before - A. Yes; he is a servant to Mr. Grimaldi; he asked me if I knew any body that bought sheep skins; I told him I did; he said he had two or three to dispose of; I saw the person that did buy them. I never saw the skins till I saw them at Hatton-garden office.</p>
<p>Q.What was his name that purchased them - A. Goodall.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose you told Goodall - A. Yes; the next thing was, the constable came to my house and informed me that Goodall had bought six. It was on a Friday the first week in April that I told Goodall.</p>
<p>Q. Then the next Saturday the constable came to you - A No; I understood they were purchased on the Saturday; the constable came to me in the week after he was apprehended; I told the prisoner I would send a person to buy the skins.</p>
<p>Q. When did you see the prisoner - A. Not till I saw him at Hatton-garden.</p>
<p>Q. What passed then - A. I told the same exactly as I told you, I believe.</p>

<p>Q. Do you remember Kirby mentioning to you that there was a man wanted to sell some skins - A. On the 2nd of April I was at the Red Lion at Finchley; Kirby was then there; he asked me if I bought skins, I told him I did; he then told me if I went to Mr. Grimaldi, his servant had got some to sell; I went on the 8th of April, I saw the prisoner in the garden, I asked him if he had got any skins to sell; he asked me if I belonged to the boy that collected skins; I told him no, I was sent there by the shoemaker that lived near the Green Man (that is Kirby); he then took me into Mr. Grimaldi's chaise-house.</p>
<p>Q. Is Mr. Grimaldi's house on the common - A. Yes. He then set a ladder up, he went into a hayloft, and while he was in the loft I heard him say he had six skins; he began to throw them down out of his loft, and throwed them all down; I looked at them as he threw them down; he came down the ladder; I asked him if they did not keep a good many sheep here, seeing so many different sorts, some Welsh, some Southdown, and some Dorsets; he then said that his master bought many different lots of sheep; I asked him who took the skins off, they appeared to be taken off very indifferently, which I told him; he told me he took this skin off the day before yesterday; then I looked at a small lamb's skin, he told me it was a very small lamb and weak when it was lambed, he knocked it on the head, because it did not thrive, I then agreed with him for the skins for eight shillings altogether.</p>
<p>Q. Was that the price of six skins - A. Yes, such as they were, they were only pieces, small lambs some of them, with the heads cut off, and many holes cut in many of them; one lamb skin, and the rest were sheep nearly full grown; some of them Welch small sheep, and others of the larger kind. When I had agreed for the skins I was putting them together to bring them away; he wished me to have a sack to put the skins in, saying that I could carry them better than without a sack; I told him that I never made a practice of carrying skins in a sack; he pressed upon me again to have a sack, and that I might leave it at any time at Mr. Kirby's; he gave me a sack, and I told him I would leave it at Mr. Grimaldi's; he wished me not to do that, he did not wish his master to see any thing about it. I then took the skins and carried them to the Red Lion.</p>
<p>Q. Before you put any of the skins in the bag did you perceive that any of them had marks - A. All the skins had marks, and all different, except two; they were nearly alike, they belonged to Decamp.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see the letters of Decamp on them - A. I saw the reddle marks; some were marked with pitch marks; I did not look at them particular. I took the skins to the Red Lion and throwed them down in the yard; a shepherd came up of the name of Rose, I told him I had bought a lot of skins; he looked at them; the firsk skin that he looked at he said was Fitzwater's.</p>
<p>Mr. Bolland. You must not tell what he said in consequence of what passed between you and the shepherd - what did you do with the skins - A. After he looked them all over, I left the skins at a house just by, where I locked them up myself and carried the key back to a person of the name of Baldock; he was the person who lent me the key.</p>
<p>COURT. How long did they remain there - A. A few hours; I sent Rose to Decamp and Fitzwater; they did not come while I was there, that was on Saturday; the next week I was taken ill; I did not arrive at Finchley till the Saturday following; then they had taken the skins and the man to Hatton-Garden. I saw them at Hatton-Garden.</p>
<p>Q. Can you take upon yourself to swear that the skins that you saw at Hatton-Garden, or any of them, were the skins that you bought of the prisoner - A. Yes, the whole of them; them six are those that I bought of the prisoner; I know them by the look of the skins, being bred and born to the business; if I look at a thing once or twice, I know them immediately for seven years.</p>
<p>Q. Among those that you saw at Hatton-Garden, did you see this little lamb - A. Yes; it was not a little lamb, it was what they call a cuckoo lamb; they had all marks on them; it was the 17th that I went to Hatton-Garden, the Monday sen'night after I bought them. On Sunday the 16th I went to Finchley. Mr. Grimaldi sent down to the Red Lion that there was a discovery of some meat; the officer of Finchley went with me to Mr. Grimaldi; we went into the hayloft, we found a sack under some loose hay.</p>
<p>Q. Was that the same loft from which the prisoner had thrown down the skins - A. No, it was another loft, I believe there was only a partition between, there was two doors, one went in one way and the other another way; both the lofts are over an out house of Grimaldi's; we there found a sack, and two legs, two shoulders, part of the scrag of a neck, and some part of a back.</p>
<p>Q. Were they cut up as a butcher would cut up - A. No; the sheep appeared not to be chined down; they were not cut as a butcher would cut them.</p>
<p>Q. Then that part of the back was not cut like a saddle
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170010"/>of mutton - A. No, there was only a part of the back and a part of the aitchbone.</p>
<p>Q. Either part, the bones and flesh you mean, I suppose - A. Yes. We then brought it down from his house; we went immediately to Mr. Bacon, of Colney Hatch, we asked him if he should bring the meat to Hatton-Garden, he said no, as the meat was in a bad state, which it really was; the next day, after the examination was over, Mr. Turton desired me to go to Finchley, and pick out the skin that I thought the meat belonged to; I picked it out; the skin was marked with a reddle mark. It belonged to Fitzwater.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see Matthews at Hatton-Garden on Monday - A. Yes; I saw all the owners of the skins on the Monday.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe any of these owners pick out skins that they claimed - A. Yes; I saw Matthews pick out a skin that he claimed as his own. Matthews' was the lamb skin, that he owned; called the cuckoo lamb.</p>
<p>Q. Had Mr. Grimaldi any other servants but the prisoner - A. I saw nobody else there but the prisoner, when I bought the skins.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know whether Mr. Grimaldi kept any sheep on the common, do you - A. I know no more than seeing two skins that Mr. Grimaldi claimed, one he was sure to.</p>
<p>Mr. Bolland. You say you was bred and born to this business, and if you saw a skin once or twice, you should know it again for seven years - A. I was brought up a breeches maker, and fellmonger; I should know it again if it was not altered for seven years.</p>
<p>Q. Have you not gone by the name of Johnson - A. I have been called Johnson; I was victorious in the florist line; by some people I was called a Johnson; I was the first florist in the known land.</p>
<p>Q. You gave eight shillings for these skins - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. They had the wool on - A. Yes; they were a good deal disfigured, or they would be worth more.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose at the time you bought them, you supposed they belonged to Mr. Grimaldi - A. I did; he told me his master had bought different lots of sheep.</p>
<p>Q. I suppose there were no particular marks that led you to believe the boy came dishonestly by the sheep - A. At the time I thought it was odd he should have so many different sorts.</p>
<p>Q. If you had suspected him, would you have bought them - A. I do not suppose I should, if I had known them to be stolen, I should never have bought them.</p>
<p>Q. This mutton you found up stairs - this was ten days after you bought the skins - A. No, eight days; I look upon it that the mutton had not been killed less than ten or twelve days.</p>
<p>WILLIAM ROSE. I am a shepherd.</p>
<p>Q. Tell me what you know about Matthews' sheep - A. I was going to my labour, past the Red Lion at Finchley, on the 8th of April; the man who bought the skins called to me, asked me if I would have part of a pint of beer with him.</p>
<p>Q. You drank some beer with Goodall, did you - A. Yes; as we had drank the beer, he went and fetched me a skin, it was Fitzwater's skin, I knew it; then we went out; I looked at another, it had Decamp's mark very plain; I did not examine the others, till I let Fitzwater and Decamp know; afterwards I examined the others on the Sunday following, at the Red Lion at Finchley.</p>
<p>Q. Upon this second examination of the skins, did you know any of the marks on the other skins - A. I did not, till they came and owned them; Mr. Milne came to the Red Lion and owned his skin, and Mr. Matthews came to Hatton-Garden; he looked at the skins, he owned his own skin. The skins were left at the office.</p>
<p>Mr. Bolland. You say the skins were left by Goodall at the Red Lion - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know that the skins that you saw there, were the skins that were brought by Goodall - A. Yes; three I am certain of.</p>
<p>Q. You do not know of the others - A. No, I cannot pretend to say; three of the skins are very remarkable; they were all reddle marked but one; three of them were pitched marked, and reddle marked both Some were so bad I could not see.</p>

I took him before Mr. Bacon. I, by the order of Mr. Bacon, locked him up for that night, and brought him to Hatton-Garden office the next day. I brought one skin only that day; I brought the rest on the Thursday following.</p>

I searched him, I found the bag in his right hand coat pocket; Brown said he would swear to its being his property; he described the contents of the bag before the bag was examined.</p>
<p>The property produced and identified.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I had been in the habit of going to this house for lodgings for eight or nine nights; I went in there very much in liquor myself; I knew I had to go down to Enfield the next morning along with
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170012"/>two or three friends; I undressed myself and went to bed; when I awoke I got up, it was much earlier than I thought, I knocked at the door and the boy opened it; I came out of the room, and on the first stair I stepped my foot on something, I picked it up, and not knowing what it was, I put it in my pocket; the reason I went to sleep there was my not being settled with a private lodging.</p>

She never came into the room and talked with me before; I had spoke to her once, I believe, no farther than to ask her how she did.</p>

They immediately followed me out, and said if I would go with them, they would treat me with a pot of beer, as I had treated them. I went along with them, expecting I was going to a public house; they took me to a private house, and said they would not stop in the kitchen, I went up stairs with them, into a room on the right hand; immediately I got into the room, the servant girl of the house, demanded three shillings of me, for the use of the room. When I found where I was, I said I would pay it, if they would let me go; I gave the servant girl a five shilling piece, she gave me two shillings in change; I then wished to go; Wells said I should not go without paying them as for the room; I gave her a shilling, and begged to go; she said I should not go unless I gave her a seven shilling piece; I told her I had no money about me; she then struck me over my mouth and nose with her open hand, and downed me on the floor. I cried out murder; immediately a man entered the room, and said if I cried out any more, he would take me into custody; I told him I was robbed of all I had.</p>
<p>Q. When you were down, did any body do any thing to you - A. I cannot possibly swear that I felt them take the money from me; but when I got up, I had none.</p>
<p>Q. How much money had you in your pocket when you went into that house - A. I had five guineas; I felt it when I put my hand into my pocket to give the girl a five shilling piece. I came down stairs, there was a great crowd about the door; I told them all I was robbed, some person went for an officer; the officer was nearly two hours before he came. I did not stir from the door all that time; some woman came out of the house between the time of the officers coming, and the people at the door asked me if that was one of them, I said it was not.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you lay down on the ground, after you were knocked down with this blow - A. About a quarter of an hour.</p>
<p>Q. Now young man, you talk of drinking three or four pints of beer - what had you been drinking all the day - A. I had drank part of four or five pots of beer along with a friend; I was in liquor, but I very well knew what I did.</p>
<p>Q.From this blow of a woman with her open hand,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170014"/>how came you to lay on the ground so long as a quarter of an hour - A. Wells kept on the top of me, and Dix she bore a hand to help her to keep me down.</p>

<p>Q. Upon you oath, had you used no familiarity with this woman, or either of them - A. None at all. I am a single man.</p>

I followed them up stairs; they went into a first floor room, of the right hand side, there was a bed in it; Wells told the young man to pay for the room, he asked me what it was, I said three shillings, he gave me a five shilling piece, and I gave him two shillings in change; they shut the door, and I came down stairs; when I had been down stairs about two minutes, I heard a noise up stairs, as if they were disputing, and the cry of murder; I think three times; it was a man's voice, and loud enough for me to hear it very plain. When I went up stairs, I saw Wells strike him; they were both standing up then; I never saw him fall down; I said she had better let him alone, and let him go out of the house quietly; she insisted that he should not go away from the house. Dix was in the room, they were all three of them in the room together. Then I went down stairs.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember some man in the house that went up stairs - A. There was a man in the house that ran up stairs the same as I did, to see what was the matter; he came in by chance, I had not seen him above three or four times; I understood he was a waiter. I believe he was a stranger to the prisoners; the prisoners neither of them lodged at our house.</p>
<p>Q. Now young woman, you say you saw this man come in your house, and you saw him go out of the house - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How did he appear to you, to be drunk or sober - A. He did not appear to me to be intoxicated; as he was going down stairs on the landing place, I heard him say he had been robbed.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoners - A. I know them by sight; I saw Wells once in the house before; I do not know that ever I saw the other in house before. When the young man went out, he stood at the door a great while; there was a great mob about the door; I do not recollect any woman going out of the house while he stood at the door.</p>

<p>Q. Did you search the bed-room - A. No, they were not in the bed-room at the time I came in.</p>
<p>Well's Defence. I went into this wine vaults, the young man was there; he immediately asked me to have some of his porter; he afterwards asked me to go with him; I went with him into the house, he cruelly ill-treated me; I resented it; he said he would not let me go out of the room, untill he had connection with me to his satisfaction; he said if I would not, he would do for me, if it cost him fifty pound. Then he accused me of robbing of him.</p>
<p>Dix's Defence. I promiscuously met with this lady in Fleet-street; she asked me to take something to drink; I told her I could drink nothing but a small glass of wine; I went with her into the wine vaults; that young man was there, he asked her to drink, and she asked me to drink; I did not. He asked her to go with him, she went with him; I believe she would not have gone if she had not been a little elevated in liquor. I saw a bed in the room; I said, young man, you do not want two women. I went down to the landlady; there was a man sitting behind the door; shortly after that I heard a voice call out murder; I went to the stairs and said what is the matter, she said this man has very ill treated me; he immediately accused us of robbing him; he went to the door and called for a watchman; a mob came about the door, I would not quit the house until I was searched, the officer searched me and found a penny; they searched this lady and found a shilling.</p>

<p>Q. Did you lose any thing - A. I lost my pocket book, various memorandums, also the copy of my freedom, and two five pound notes; I described Dennis at Hatton-Garden office, and Stanton, the officer, took him last Saturday night. Dennis is the person that took the pocket book out of my pocket; I have not the smallest doubt of either of them; the moon shone; I could perfectly see their persons.</p>

<p>- MOONEY. I am the constable of the night. When the watchman brought Crawley in on the 23rd of April the prosecutor was quite intoxicated in liquor. Crawley said to the prosecutor, you want to take my life away; the prosecutor began to look at him; he said you are the person that put your hand upon my mouth to stop me crying out. I searched him. I found a shilling, and a few halfpence, and a knife that he cuts his bread and cheese with; the prosecutor was dancing about, he was so intoxicated.</p>

I was crying half past two o'clock when I heard the cry of watch; I came to Hatton-Garden, I there saw the prosecutor without his hat, he was expostulating with the watchmen on the other side of the way, blaming them for not coming to his assistance; he said he had lost his pocket-book and his hat. The prisoner Crawley came up and asked what was the matter; the prosecutor gave me charge of him; he said he was the man that put his hand on his mouth.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prosecutor sober - A. I cannot say; he seemed to give his evidence very fair at the watchhouse; I have no doubt but he was sober; he told the same story then as he did at the office, and the same as he has told to day. When the prisoner Crawley came in the watchhouse, he applied to Mr. Mooney, the constable; he said to him, you know my father and mother very well; Mooney said he did, and they were very industrious people.</p>
<p>Q. When this conversation passed, did any thing strike you to believe the prosecutor was in liquor - A. No; he delivered his story very clear, as ever I heard any man; I do not know him any more than seeing him that night.</p>
<p>Crawley's Defence. I was coming along, this gentleman was in full discourse with a watchman; when I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170016"/>came up, and there was a young man standing with an umbrella, he was blowing the other watchman up; he said you rascals you have not done your duty, he said he had been robbed; the man said he saw nobody coming along; he looked at the man with the umbrella very hard; I asked him what was the matter; he was going to give charge of this man, and then he said he would give charge of me; I never made any resistance.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner at the bar - A. Yes. On Friday night, the 12th of May, about half past ten, the brought with him two horses.</p>
<p>Q. What sort of horses were they - A. Bay horses; they seemed to be post chaise horses; one had a saddle and bridle, the other had a collar and bridle, of a led horse. There were no traces on them at all.</p>
<p>Q. When he came in about ten o'clock at night, what did he do - A. He put up at our house, I had the care of the horses, and he slept at our house; in the morning he got up about half past five; he went into the stable, he put the saddle and bridle on the horse that he rode; he brought him out of the stable, telling me he was going to have a shoe put on; he left the other horse in the stable; he ordered me to feed the horse, and clean him, and give him some water, I did so; at the time I was cleaning the horse, Girdler came and owned the horse; he asked if there was not another belonging to it, I told him there was; he was gone to the blacksmith.</p>

<p>Q. Then Girdler went away with the two horses - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember in the course of Friday evening, or on Saturday morning, the prisoner giving any account of the horses, what they were - A. I asked him in the morning if they were coach horses, he said one was a coach horse, and the other was an old charger; he told me that he had been taking a carriage to town for his master.</p>
<p>Q. Did he tell you who his master was - A. No, nor did I ask him; he said he was going to take them to the barracks, after he had got one shod.</p>
<p>Q. to Girdler. Now the horse that you saw at the stables, at the King's Arms, are you sure that was your master's horse - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Are you sure that the horse that you saw facing of the sadler's, that horse was likewise your master's - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of this, you took both the horses, did not you - A. Yes; and my master has had them ever since.</p>

<p>Q. He did not tell you how he came by this horse, did he - A. No; I shod him.</p>
<p>Q. Did the prisoner take the horse away - A. Yes; after I put the shoe on the horse, he sent me for the other horse to be shod all round. I went for the other horse, I found it in the possession of Girdler.</p>
<p>Q. Were you with Girdler when the man was taken - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember any thing of his attempting to escape, did he run away - A. Yes; I ran after him with Girdler.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I had been punished by the regiment a great deal; it made me quite careless almost to think I should be punished, and not in fault; for that reason, I was careless what I did. I did not take the horses with intent to make money of them, or steal them. A gentleman that I never saw in my life before,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="180905170018"/>persuaded me to ride the saddle horse, and be rode the other. We went on the road, I cannot tell what place it was; I never was in the country before. The other man took the traces off the horses; I asked him what he was going to do with them, I thought it was wrong; he said you never mind; he told me to put up at the house where the ostler lived, he would call at eight o'clock in the morning. As we were riding along, I perceived the horse I was riding, go lame; I said we had better get him shod, than for the horse to go lame. When I came to the stable in the morning, I asked the ostler where I could get a blacksmith, he told me. I took him to the blacksmith; I saw the other horse wanted shoeing all round. I told the blacksmith to fetch him.</p>

<p>Jones's Defence. I was in bed at the time.</p>
<p>Fonseca's Defence. There has been a bit of dispute between him and me; he borrowed sixpence of me. It is only spite and malice about this lead. He uses the house where I go constantly to have a pint of beer, he is there constantly with common prostitutes; he asked me for a sixpence; I sent it him; since that he gave me a shilling. He came on the Wednesday as I was taken on the Thursday; he asked me for the sixpence out of his shilling; I said I had not got it, I will give it you tomorrow; he abused me, and I said because he used such bad language to me I would get him on board the tender; he said he would do for me in my old days, he would transport me. He went to Mr. Nightingale the next day. I have lived in the same place many years.</p>

Several people in the street endeavoured to stop him; he turned, and ran the other way; I never lost sight of the prisoner all the time, except when a coach stood in the way; he was one side of the coach, and I of the other; he fell down, and the constable laid hold of him. I said this man has stolen my watch; he was taken into a house, the constable there searched him; he immediately said you are mistaken in the man, I did not steal the watch, I was running, calling out stop thief. After some search, the constable said, I feel something like a watch; I said I will give you the description of it. I gave the description; the watch exactly corresponded with the description I gave. The watch was found upon the prisoner.</p>

On Saturday, April the 22nd, I was in Gracechurch-street, I heard the cry of stop thief; I saw the prisoner run across the road, he turned back; I took hold of him, and took him into a public house; I searched him, and found the watch between the lining of his breeches, under the ham.</p>

<p>Q. Did you call on him on Thursday the 2nd of March - A. Yes; and in consequence of what past between us on the Saturday, after I went to the flatting mills in Wild-street, Drury-lane, I saw Mr. Miller, I told him I wanted to purchase a few goods, meaning bad shillings and six-pences; Mr. Miller readily gave me one bad shilling and two good six-pences; I gave him one good shilling for them. We appointed to meet again the same evening at the Lemon Tree public house, at the top of the Hay-market; he said he would meet me there with half a piece, he thought he could make up meaning half a guinea; if he should disappoint me, he would meet me on the Monday following, at the Hog in the Pound, in Oxford-street; then we parted. On Monday morning I received two good shillings from Mr. Burton, they were marked; I received directions from him. I went to the Hog in the Pound on Monday morning at ten o'clock. I took the two marked shillings with me. The prisoner met me within ten minutes of the time he appointed.</p>
<p>Q. What passed between you when you met at the Hog in the Pound - A. I asked him if he had got the goods ready, meaning two guineas worth, he said no; I said when will they be ready, Mr. Miller; he said about two o'clock this afternoon, I said have you none now, he said I think I have nine; I said I would take four, he gave them to me; the four in the street, not in the public house. We first met in the public house and drank there, we came out together. I gave him the two good shillings that I had of Mr. Burton, marked, and he gave me the four. We walked down Oxford-street, a little way further.</p>
<p>Q. As you were going along the street, did you see Burton - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Had any signal been agreed upon between you and Burton - A. Upon my seeing of Burton, I touched the right side of my bonnet; Mr. Miller and I went into the next wine vaults to have something to drink; Burton came in directly and took Miller and me into custody; he searched me, and took from me the four bad shillings; I had put them into my pocket.</p>
<p>COURT. Had you any bad shillings in your pocket before you saw Miller - A. No, I had not; he took and put us all three in a coach together; he said where did you get these, I answered from Mr. Miller.</p>
