<p>Q. On the evening of the 23d of December last did the prisoner come to your cottage - A. Yes; about half past five in the evening; it was dark; he knocked at the door and called me by name, and on my opening the door he asked me if I sold potatoes; I told him I had none; he afterwards asked for a drink of water, which I gave him; my wife was broiling some sprats for the children's supper, he said you have got sprats. Boswell; my wife said, would you like to have any, and I joined in the invitation; after some solicitation he came in, and on further solicitation he sat down, while my wife was dressing the sprats; he are about a couple of sprats; he then enquired what was o'clock, I told him I thought it was near six o'clock; he then stood up and made a bow; I thank you for my sprats; he then said I thank you mistress for my sprats, and made another bow; I said they are not worth the thanks; he then stepped up to a young child of mine about two years old, he said, I will give the child a halfpenny; the child, said I, do not need any money, nor does he know the use of it, do not give him any; he turned round to the child to give him a halfpenny, as I thought; his back was towards me; he turned round again and presented a pistol at my face, it was about nine inches from my face; he said your money or your life; what do you mean, said I? - your money or your life, he again repeated; - damn you, said I, where do you think a man like me gets money; I took the chair by the back that Walker had sat on and dashed it full length at him; the pistol flashed.</p>
<p>COURT. You dashed the chair at him to hit him I suppose - A. Yes; I struck him, and he pointed the pistol at me with his two hands.</p>
<p>Q. How soon after you had hit him with the chair was it that the pistol flashed - A. Almost instantly.</p>
<p>Q. Did it appear to you that the flashing of the pistol was owing to your striking him, or was it any act of him - A. I imagine it was his purpose.</p>
<p>Q. That you believe, do you - A. Yes; and not with my striking him.</p>
<p>Q. Where did the chair strike him - A. In his face.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. Was the chair above the pistol - A. Just at the point of the pistol; I hit his face just above it; he seized the chair with his right hand, and immediately flashed another pistol with his left.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that he so flashed the pistol with his left hand was it presented to you - A. It was presented at my right eye. I think he dashed or threw the chair at me in the same manner as I did at him; he then struck me with his stick at the back of my head, and made the blood flow; he struck me another blow on the temple and another on the eye; I then collared him with the left hand, I struck him some blows in the face with my right hand, and his stick dropped; I called several times for a stick, my wife and children were in the room; my eldest boy put his stick into my hand, he then strove to wrest the stick from me; the scuffle increased, and he strove to overpower me; he kicked me, and bit my thumb; he got on the bed, I dragged him down, and he fell on my wife.</p>
<p>Q. Did you and your wife at last overpower him - A. Yes; I overpowered him; my wife tied his hands behind his back, and I ordered him to be tied to the legs of the bedstead; I put a chair across his breast and some cords round his body and legs and kept him in that all night. Mine is an alone house, about a quarter of a mile from any other house. In the morning I sent my son for assistance; he was conveyed to a justice, and he was taken from there to the office in Hatton Garden, and the pistols were taken to the same office.</p>
<p>Q. Were they, when taken to the office, in the same condition which they were when you took them away from the prisoner - A. They were; I gave them to Mr. Hale in my house, and he took them to Hatton Garden office.</p>
<p>Q. When you delivered them to Mr. Hale had you put any shots in them - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that you gave them to Mr. Hale did you and he examine them to see whether they were loaded - A. I look at them and observed the muzzles full, within about three quarters of an inch of both of them.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that he flashed the second pistol, was there any thing but his purpose to occasion that - A. There was nothing. It was then presented to my face.</p>
<p>COURT. There was nothing could make it go off but his purpose - A. Yes; I am sure it was intended by him, and the first also.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did I ever offer to fire a pistol at you - A. Yes, you did, two pistols.</p>
<p>Q. Did I tell you that I had a partner on the road with a horse - A. You did.</p>

<p>Q. On the 23d of December last did the prisoner come to your house - A. He did; he asked my husband if any potatoes were to be sold there; he said no; he then asked for a drink of water, which my husband gave him, and said he was sorry he had nothing better to offer him. I was getting my children's supper ready, he said you have some sprats, mistress; I said yes; I asked him if he wished to have any, and that he was very welcome to have them; he said he was very fond of sprats, he had not had any this year; I asked him to sit down, he did; he seemed loth to sit down.</p>
<p>Q. He required pressing - A. Yes. He sat down at the lower end of the table, I set some sprats before him, he ate a few of them; he said, you need not dress any more, he had more than he should eat; he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181001100004"/>said he would give my child an halfpenny; he stood up; instead of giving the child an halfpenny he drawed out a pistol and turned round upon his heel and presented it at arms length at my husband's face, and said your money or your life; my husband said what do you mean; he said, I mean your money or your life; my husband took the chair that he sat upon and pushed it at him, straight foremost, and said, where should I get money, and instantly the pistol flashed.</p>
<p>Q. Could you judge at the time it flashed whether it was presented to your husband, or in any other direction - A. It was presented to his face.</p>
<p>Q. Did it appear to you that the going off of the pistol was occasioned by the shock of the chair, or was it done by the prisoner - A. I believe it was done before the chair reached him; I saw the pistol go off before the chair reached him.</p>
<p>COURT. Did you see the direction of the prisoner's arm before the chair was presented - A. It was presented strait forward at him; I do believe that his arm went straight to his face before the chair was put.</p>
<p>Mr. Gurney. So that there was no difference in the direction of the arm when the chair was put - A. No difference; it was straight at his face. The prisoner let the pistol drop and seized the chair with his right hand and then flashed another pistol in my husband's face with his left hand; I had the baby at my breast, when I saw him present the pistol I stood up and gave the baby into the hands of another child, to hold; my husband closed in upon him; he struck my husband with the stick on the back of his head; that is the stick that my husband has produced in court. I ran over to my husband that he should not get him down; I thought I would hang on the fellows arm; he saw me coming; he kicked me at the bottom of my back.</p>
<p>Q. At last he was conquered and secured - A. Yes; I received a blow in my face, on the side of my head, and on my shoulders; I was bruised all over.</p>
<p>Q. At last he was confined and kept there till the morning - A. Yes; 'till Mr. Hale come.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Did I offer to pull out any pistol and fire at your husband - A. You did.</p>
<p>Q. Did I tell you that there was a man at the gate with the horse - A. You did.</p>

<p>Q. Do you live near Boswell - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. On the morning of the 24th of December were you sent for by his little boy - A. Yes; I went to his house and there I saw the prisoner, his legs were tied together, and his thighs, and a chain round on his body, and several cords. I searched him, I found upon him some gunpowder. The pistols I found in the house, the pistol cases were found out of doors in a bundle; there were two coats and waistcoats. As soon as I brought him out of the house, as he was coming out of the gate, he said let me have my clothes; in that bundle of clothes I saw my man take the cases out; these are the cases, they are woollen cases; and these are the pistols, and here is a pistol screw; they were delivered to me by Mr. Boswell; I examined the pistols at the time they were nearly full; I took them to the police office.</p>
<p>Q. Did you there see the charges taken out - A. I did; they were both loaded with powder and snot. The pan of that pistol is broken, it could not go off; through the fall or the blow afterwards some injury must have been done to it; it must have flashed first before the fall; the injury seems to have been done by the fall. Here is some gunpowder in this pistol case, and in the great coat pocket there is some loose shot. I conveyed him to the office and he was committed.</p>
<p>JAMES HANCOCK. I am an officer of Hatton Garden office.</p>
<p>Q. When these pistols were produced by Mr. Hale at Hatton Garden office, did you, by the direction of the magistrate, unload them - A. I did. I have the charges here separate.</p>
<p>Q.How many shots were there in each - A. I did not count them; I suppose there is pretty near an hundred, and about the same in the other.</p>
<p>COURT. About a common charge was it not - A. Yes, about a common charge.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I never offered to fire any pistols at him. I went to this man's house, I was informed that he wanted to buy pistols; I went there on purpose to ask him; I knocked at the door, they opened it; I went in, they asked me to have a bit of supper; I got one of these pistols out of my pocket to shew him, meaning to ask him to buy it; he took one of the chairs up; I never offered to fire at all, nor held my arms out; this man put the chair and struck at me; I dropped the pistol out of my hands; I took hold of the chair, I said, what do you want by this; he said, d - n you, I will kill you; I struck at him with the chair. I stood in my own defence: his wife ran and locked the door; they swore they would kill me among them, so therefore I hit them again with the stick; he got a fork and swore he would run it through me; then he knocked me down and overpowered me; I only stood in my own defence all the while.</p>
<p>COURT to Mr. Hale. When you took hold of the prisoner in the morning did he mention any thing of his being in danger himself - A. No; he said nothing of that; I asked him his name, he told me he did not know his name.</p>
<p>Q. He told you nothing of this that he has said now - A. No.</p>
<p>Jury to prosecutor. Which pocket did he take the pistol from - A. I could not tell; he turned his back towards me to give the child a halfpenny.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe where he took the second pistol from - A. No; I did not see it till he presented it and flashed it at me.</p>
<p>Prisoner. It is a thing quite impossible.</p>
<p>Jury. I have seen such a thing done.</p>

I missed the handkerchief about six o'clock, after the prisoner was taken between five and six. I was sitting in the parlour with a lady and gentleman, I heard the glass of the shop window break, I and the lady and gentleman went into the shop, I found a pane of glass with the corner broke out. The gentleman went out, and said he would watch. In about a minute the prisoner and another passed by the window; he looked earnestly at the window, and returned back again; he then pushed the remainder of the broken pane of glass in. It was not so dark but I could distinguish him; he put his hand into the window, he was dragging the ribbon out with his hand. I went out and collared him, he resisted, pulled me out in the road, and got from me. I pursued him, and cried out</p>
<p>"stop thief;" he threw me down in the middle of the road; he was taken and brought back.</p>
<p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181001100006"/>Q. Was it day-light enough for you to distinguish the prisoner - A. Quite day-light enough for me to distinguish him.</p>
<p>CHARLES GREVILLE. On the 8th of December I dined with Mrs. Cawthorn: Miss Emery was with me. We heard a noise like breaking of glass; we discovered a square of glass that appeared to be cut designedly, of sufficient length to admit a person's hand. I went out to watch, and stationed myself about twenty yards from the house. I noticed the prisoner pass several times, fixing his eye on the window; the last time I saw him pass he put his arm in the window. I could not see what he had in his hand. Mrs. Cawthorn came out and seized the prisoner by the collar, upon which the prisoner threw her violently down in the road. I pursued the prisoner, and took him in a court in Grub-street, Immediately I pursued the prisoner I was surrounded by four or five others, who tried to extricate him; they cut my coat with a knife in two or three places. I secured him, and brought him back to Mrs. Cawthorn.</p>
<p>Q.(to Prosecutrix.) Was the ribbon and handkerchief ever found - A. Upon my taking hold of him he let the ribbon go, there were about two yards of it hanging out of the window. I never saw the handkerchief again; the value of the handkerchief was seven shillings.</p>

About eleven o'clock I took all the notes out of the till, and went up stairs, as is generally my custom. About twelve o'clock, after the shop was shut up, I went down to examine the till; that note was not to be found in the till that I had given to Mr. Bollard. The next morning I said to my young men, that I entertained a suspicion that I was robbed: I had caused a one pound note to be laid out on the evening before, which was not in the till. They all denied any knowledge of it. I told them the note was marked, I had sent it after eleven o'clock, and it would be found on some of them. I sent for an officer. On his proceeding to search, the prisoner stepped forward and said, unfortunately he was the person who had taken the note; and he produced it at the same time. He said, he had took it to make up a payment of a bill of about forty shillings that he owed his washerwoman. He begged hard for forgiveness.</p>

The prisoner returned into the house again; after he had got the change, and drank some gin along with a woman and a soldier, he was going out, I asked the boy whom he gave the change to, the boy said, that man; I told him he must not go, I should send for a constable, he said, he had no money in his pocket; while the constable was gone for, he took a dollar out of his pocket, he said, is this yours; I said, I believe it is, he said, take it. No, I said, this will not do, I must have another. The constable came, and searched the woman. and found a dollar upon her. The woman had said, she had no such thing upon her. On the woman was found a great quantity of loose halfpence, besides the dollar.</p>

Mr. Maud was present; he told them he suspected they had robbed the premises; they hung their heads and said nothing. Cartright came; they were searched; he found a piece of saltpetre in each of their hats. Connor said, he was sorry he had done it; and Stephens expressed sorrow; I do not particularly remember what he said.</p>

I said, Mr. Maud, there is something in it; I searched further and took out this salt-petre; and in Connor's hat, which he had put on the table, was this piece of salt-petre; I weighed them, one piece is five pound weight; and the other is five pound and a half. Connor and Stephens begged for mercy; Mr. Maud said, he had lost so much, he could think nothing at all of it. I handcuffed them and took them to the counter.</p>
<p>Q. to Biggar. What quantity is there of this. - A. About five pound weight in each, worth about ten shillings. Stephens's sole employ was in cutting the salt-petre out of the crystals.</p>
<p>Connor's Defence. I lived eighteen years with Mr. Maud, and during them eighteen years, he gave me a very good character; I have been away from him, and only lived with him two years this last time. I superintended the laboratory for Mr. Biggar, for twelve years; and I have had the care of some thousand pounds; I behaved as an honest man all the time. I asked my mate to give me a piece of salt-petre, it was to give to a friend. Mr. Biggar knows me, he can give me a good character.</p>
<p>Stephens said nothing in his defence, nor called any witnesses to character.</p>
<p>Conner called six witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

I asked him, where he was going with that glass, he told me, that he was going in the fields with it; I desired him to bring the glass back to where he took it from, he said he would not; I said, he should, and collared him with one hand, and took hold of the glass with the other, and brought him back.</p>

I asked him, what the horse was used to do, whether it would draw; he said, it had been generally used in the country to carry double. I asked him, if he warranted the horse sound? he said, no, he did not; he did not want to have further trouble with him. I had the horse turned up and down the yard, to see if he was sound.

On the 4th of December last, my son had occasion to go in the City on business; he came home and told me, that he had seen a pair of shoes of mine in Mr. Atterbury's window; he is a pawnbroker, in Crown-street, Finsbury-square. I went there and saw eight pair of my shoes. On the 6th, I found two pair at Mr. Wright's, a pawnbroker, in White Cross-street, and two pair at Mr. Williams's, pawnbroker, Barbican. On Tuesday the 4th, I went to the house of the female prisoner, she was at home; there were two young women at home, and I think another of her sons was at home; her husband was not at home. The officer searched her, he took four duplicates out of her pocket, one of which was for a pair of shoes. He afterwards searched the room, and found a quantity of leather, some whole skins and some in pieces. Her other son, who was a shoemaker, was at work in his father's house; he separated his from mine. I found there twelve pair of shoes. The female prisoner said, she was very sorry for what had happened. She fell on her knees and said, what happened I am the cause of this; she asked, if I would forgive her; I told her I did not wish to hurt the hair of her head, but I wished to have my property back again. I told her my daughter had lost a pair of scissars; she gave me the silver part of a pair of scissars. The boy prisoner was at my shop when the officer took the female prisoner; he came to my house. I said to the boy Walter, put on your hat and go with that gentleman: he went with the officer. I never found any thing upon the boy. I had the most unbounded confidence in him, nor do I know of any thing done by him.</p>

On the 2nd of December, I think it was, I went out to spend the evening with a friend; it was on a Friday. I stopped till two or three o'clock on Saturday morning. I had drank rather freely. I was coming home from Dyot-street to Duke-street, St. James's. I had been in Berry-street. I was not at home, I dare say, before five or six o'clock in the morning. I do not recollect any thing that happened. My landlady came up and called me at two o'clock, and enquired if I had lost any thing, because I was tipsey when I came home. I searched and missed my watch. About a fortnight afterwards I was told it was advertized from Bow-street, and that it was at Mr. Wigley's shop. I went to Bow-street, and swore to my watch.</p>
<p>MR. WIGLEY. I live in Chandois-street. On the 11th of December, about two o'clock, the prisoner came to pledge this watch. I was not in the shop at the time, but my young man came to me. I went into the shop, and asked, what he wanted on the watch; he told me, he wanted three pounds. I asked him, if he knew what the watch was; yes, he said, he knew it was a gold watch. I asked him if he knew any thing further, because it was a repeater; he only said, he knew it was a gold watch, a gentleman had given it him to pledge to pay his rent. I told him, that was something extraordinary. I desired my lad to go for an officer. He asked me whether I meaned to give it him; I said, certainly. I did not; he immediately made off as fast as he could; the officer came; he was pursued and stopped, and taken to Bow-street. At the office he said, he found it on his beat; he is a watchman. On the last examination, the prisoner delivered up the seal to the prosecutor. There was no seal to the watch when he offered to pledge it.</p>
<p>The property produced and identified.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was going my round at half past three on Saturday morning, I found this watch by the corner of Duke-street; it was laying on the pavement. I kept it in my possession for nine days, to see if I could find an owner for the watch. I carried it always with me on my beat: I heard no enquiries. I happened to go into this pawnbroker's to get the particulars of the watch for the purpose of getting it advertized the next day. I asked the pawnbroker's man to tell me, whether it was gold or not; he said, yes. I said, could I pawn it; he said, yes. I said, for three guineas; he said, yes. The master came in the shop and asked me many questions, and then told me to go away, he would keep the watch. I went out to get an officer. They took me. I was in Clerkenwell four days; and when I went up to the office, there was no owner to this watch: they let me go. I told them where I lived; and when they sent for me, I went to the office.</p>
<p>The prisoner called one witness, who gave him a good character.</p>

When he went away he left a bag in the room; when he came again, on the 27th, it was missing. I had seen the bag in the room on the 25th. The prisoner and
<persName id="t18100110-20-person196">Walker</persName> both lodged in one room. The prisoner went away on the morning of the 27th, between seven and eight o'clock, before the family was up. He owed two shillings for a week's lodging.</p>
<p>Q. Had he given you any notice of going away - A. No, I was out on the Wednesday. On the Thursday morning I was informed the bag was gone. I went into the room, and saw the bag was gone. I suspected the prisoner, and went in pursuit of him. I apprehended him about five o'clock, at the Yorkshire Grey, White Lion-street. I found him there; he called me out into the street; he asked me, what I wanted of him; I told him to go in and have a pint of beer, I wanted to have some talk with him concerning the things that were taken out of the room; he said, he should go where he pleased for me, and he went down Queen-street. I followed him, and seeing a public-house open, the Black Horse, I forced him in there by main strength, and sent for an officer, and gave him in charge. At the Black Horse, there was
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181001100012"/>a man there that said, the bag was opened in his shop; his name is Newman. I went to Newman's house afterwards, and saw certain things which are now in court.</p>
<p>- NEWMAN. I am an hair-dresser, No. 17, White Lion-street. On the 27th of December, about the middle of the day, the prisoner called at my shop.</p>
<p>Q. Were you acquainted with him before - A. Yes, he used my shop the whole of the Summer. He had a bag, which he told me he had just purchased; he said, that the man that he bought it of told him, there were four pair of stockings in it, and he wished to see the contents of it; he then untied the bag, and throwed the contents on the floor; he said, he thought he had not given too much for it. He found four pair of stockings there.</p>
<p>Q. You saw, of course, what there were in the bag - A. I cannot recollect all the things that were in the bag: there was a black waistcoat, nearly new; two flannel waistcoats, which he observed would suit him, as he always wore sleeves to his waistcoats when he was at work; there was a pair of new braces. He said he was going to Northampton, he would not be troubled with all these things; he put the black waistcoat on, and selected what part he would take with him, and put them in the bag again; and these things he left for me. He called the next morning and said, the chocolate coat which he had on, was at the top of the bag when he brought them. On the evening of the 27th, I happened to be at the Yorkshire Grey public-house, White Lion-street, I there mentioned the circumstance to a neighbour, of the prisoner bringing a bag and emptying it in my shop, and that I conceived he did not come honestly by it, or had bought it of somebody that came dishonestly by it. My neighbour was in the same house that Mr. Sparrow put the prisoner in; he informed Mr. Sparrow of the circumstance. My neighbour and Mr. Sparrow came to me, and desired me to go to Bow-street; I immediately produced the articles and went to Bow-street.</p>
<p>The property produced and identified.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I got up, and went out in the morning, at day-light; I took nothing with me but the clothes that I had on my back; I owed no rent till the Thursday. I was going along the road, about ten o'clock in the day, I lit with a man with a bundle in his hand; he said, he came from Bristol; he asked me to buy it; he said, he wanted some money; I asked him to let me look at them; there was a coat and some stockings, I saw but three waistcoats; I gave him seventeen shillings for them, I thought it was the value of them. I went to this man's house, and let him look at them; I afterwards happened to go into a public-house, where I lost the things; I never made a farthing of them. I left with that gentleman, a tea caddie, three waistcoats, and a pair of old shoes, and what things else I do not know, I told him he was welcome to them.</p>

<p>Q. How long ago is that Tuesday evening that she accosted you. - A. About five weeks ago, I cannot tell the day of the month; it was by the coffee house in Covent Garden; she had something in her lap, what it was I did not know at the time. She asked me if I could recommend her to a lodging; I told her I did not know any. I took her home to where I lodged; when she went home with me, she asked my landlady if she could lend her two shillings, she told her, no; I went and pledged a handkerchief for her that evening for eightpence; I left it at a public-house for her; I got no money, she wanted something to drink. In the morning I pledged the lace for a pound at Mr. Flemmings, in Fetter-lane, and there were three gowns, a petticoat, a shift, and handkerchiefs; she went with me when I pledged them at Mr. Flemmings; I got one pound fourteen shillings upon them. There were two pair of stockings, and two handkerchiefs, I pledged for seven shillings at the same place; and one pair of stockings, and three handkerchiefs, for five shillings, at Turner's, in Brydges-street. I offered her the duplicates with the money; she desired me to put them in my pocket, as she had no pockets to take care of them.</p>
<p>Q. These are all the things that you pledged. - A. Yes. She requested me on the Saturday evening, that I would give her the duplicates; she came to where I lodge. I put them on the table, she said she was going to sell them to a woman in Covent Garden; she asked me if I knew a person that would buy them; I told her of Mrs. Beaumont; we went together to Mrs. Beaumont and sold them for thirteen shillings.</p>

<p>Q. to Prosecutrix. Have you seen all them articles that Mr. Lumley has produced. - A. Yes; all is my property but this cotton gown.</p>
<p>Q. Be so good to mention what things there are there. - A. There are three pair of silk stockings, one cotton gown, a muslin gown, two shifts, eight handkerchiefs, a black lace cloak, and a shawl. The black lace cloak cost me eighteen pounds at first, I have had it two years; I cannot say what it is worth now; my shifts cost me sixteen shillings each. The black lace cloak was in my apartment, the handkerchiefs and shawl were in the wash, I know they are all mine.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was very much intoxicated when I took these things. Mrs. Priestly persuaded me to leave my home, and live with her upon the town, and she would take a lodging for her and me: she has got a girl now in the hospital that lived with her. That woman that took me to her place, she took a shawl and brought in some gin and victuals; she pledged all the things herself, and when the money was gone she turned me out. I was in the watch-house two nights. She went to this woman and sold the tickets; she said, if the tickets were found I should be prosecuted.</p>
<p>The prisoner called one witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Do not you remember being asked, how you could make a charge of their stealing a dollar and three shillings, when you had not a shilling in your pocket. - A. Yes; Mr. Adkins knows I had a shilling in my pocket when I went to the office,</p>
<p>Q. If any body would say that you asked for a shilling to pay for your liquor at that house, that is not true. - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. What was paid to you in the house. - A. A dollar and two shillings, and I had two shillings and five-pence halfpenny before I went into the house.</p>
<p>Q. So then, these two men followed you out of the house after they had put the lights out, knocked you down and robbed you, and went into the house again; you have heard of persons having forty pounds reward for a highway robbery. - A.

<join result="persNameOccupation" targOrder="Y" targets="t18100110-23-victim234 t18100110-23-viclabel132"/>; I went into the tap-room. The prisoner at the bar came down stairs, he was a lodger of mine, he had lodged with me about two months. He asked me for half a pint of beer. My small clothes were lying on the tap-room table; they were those that I had taken off, my apron was lying over them. I delivered the half pint of beer.</p>
<p>Q. Was the prisoner the only person in the room at that present time - A. He was. I had another lodger come down stairs; he brought the half pint of beer back from the prisoner, and desired me to make a pint of it; I made it a pint. They then called for a quartern of gin. I left my breeches on the table in the room during this time.</p>
<p>Q. Did you go and fetch the gin - A. I was in the bar, and they came for the liquor; the bar is on the other side of the passage.</p>
<p>Q. Which of them came for it - A. Not the prisoner. The prisoner remained in the tap-room during this time the man came for the gin. After they had drank this, they got up and went out together. My wife went into the tap-room, and found my things laying on the tap-room table, she brought them in the bar to me, and said, how simple I must be to leave my small clothes there; I said, there were no men there but our own lodgers, and a man that worked for Mr. Cotterell. She took my money out of my watch pocket, I immediately missed the check which the Bank of England notes were rolled in it.</p>
<p>Q. How many Bank notes had you - A. There were nineteen pounds altogether, with the money and the check. The check was for five pounds ten shillings, drawn by Mr. Hobbs on Manwaring. At that present time I did not miss any Bank of England notes. I was rather flurried. Afterwards I missed a one pound Bank note. My wife said, our lodgess must have taken them, and desired me to run after them. I did run after them, and took them in King's-road. I stopped them, and told them they had been playing the rogue with my pockets, and desired, if they had to return me my money; they denied having any money of mine. The prisoner asked me how much I had lost; I told him, I supposed he knew better than I did: I could not exactly tell. I said, you must go back, and I will have you all three searched. They did come back; and coming down Liquor-pond-street, as I walked after the prisoner, I perceived him breaking paper and dropping it. I catched up a piece of it, and seized his hand, where there was the remains of the check. I then seized him and brought him to my house, and I sent for Mr. Hancock, the officer, to take charge of him. The other men were searched, but nothing was found on them.</p>
<p>Q. When had you seen this check and the one pound note in your pocket before - A. On that morning; before I had undressed myself I had looked at them, and folded them up in this check; that was, when I was first up in the morning. The officer has the two pieces of the check.</p>
<p>Mr. Arabin. How long had you worn the breeches that morning - A. From six o'clock, I dare say; it was when I first got up.</p>
<p>Q. You counted your money when you got up - A. I did. There was nobody about the house till these men got up. It could not have gone out of my pocket without it was taken out. I put them in my fob; they were tight breeches.</p>
<p>Court. What parish is your house in - A. Saint Andrew's.</p>
<p>JAMES HANCOCK. I was sent for on the morning of the robbery. I went to the house of Mr. Conner; he told me had been robbed; he pointed out three men; I searched the other men, then I searched this man. This note was given to me by Mr. Conner. I took the prisoner off to the New Prison. I asked for the one pound note; he had put it in the other notes, he told me.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The prisoner delivered to me a one pound note; he said, that was all the money he had got. I put it into my pocket and mixed it with the others. I could not pick it out again.</p>
<p>Q. Had you a note of one pound - A. Yes, they were all one pound notes but the check.</p>
<p>Q. Upon your asking him to deliver up the one pound note, he gave you a one pound note - A. He did.</p>

<p>MR. COLLINS. Q. What are you. - A. I am a labourer, in the employ of the East-India Company.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner. - A. I do, by sight. On Thursday the 5th of August, I saw him come in the yard, and go to the exsise-box, he took out a handful of request papers and he selected one of them, the chest was kept in the yard; he went to look for a chest of that number, to match the request note. I went up to him, and said, what do you want, if you want any thing, why do not you speak. My place was to see that every one had his own; I took the paper out of his hand, and looked about to see for the chest; I pointed out, and said, that is the chest that you want.</p>
<p>Q. Is that the paper that you took of his hand - A. It is the paper, the number was 7m100. I returned him the paper after I found the chest for him to go to the Permit office, to get a permit.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ask him whose porter he was. - A. No; he went to the Permit office, he brought the permit into the yard, he was going to take the chest up; I said, my friend, I have not done with you yet: I took the permit out of his hand, and said, whose porter are you, I understood Mr. Roton's; I entered it in my book Roton, I asked him again, did you say you are Roton's porter, no; he said, Noton. I run my pen through Roton, and interlined it Noton.</p>

<p>Q. Then the person who carries it to you, if the note is not a forgery, is the person who has a right to take the tea. - A. Of course.</p>
<p>Q. There is no pretence to say this note is a forgery. - A. Not in the least, when he produced that note, I had no right to ask any questions, if you had brought it, I should have delivered it to you, for Noton.</p>

<p>EVERARD DENTON. I keep a public house, next door to Messrs. Nash; my cellar is separated from the next door by a partition. On the 19th of December between eight and nine in the evening, the prisoner came, and said, he wanted two parcels, I told him, I did not know any thing of any parcels, he said, he gave them to my man John; John came in, I asked him if he had received any parcel, he said, no, I called three more, they all denied receiving any parcel; he then said, if you will let me have a candle, I can tell you where they are in the cellar. Daniel, the boy that is here, lit a candle, and went down in the cellar along with the prisoner; the prisoner returned, and they brought up two parcels with them from off the butthead.</p>
<p>Q. Did you open these two parcels. - A. No; I said, go to Mr. Nash, the officer went with him. I had been in the cellar, about six or seven o'clock in the morning; and after that I had been in the cellar fining the beer down.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe any hole cut in the partition of that cellar. - A. None at all, I went down into the cellar again, when Mr. Nash came, I found a hole cut in the partition that was not there in the morning.</p>

<p>Q. Do you recollect the prisoner coming to your master's house on the 29th. - A. I heard him talking with my young mistress, about some parcels.</p>
<p>Q. Had he entrusted you with any parcels. - A. No; I am certain of that, I went into the cellar with him, he shewed me where the parcels were; they were upon the head of a butt, close to a hole in the partition, the hole was large enough to admit these parcels to pass through it. I could get through the hole myself. He brought the parcels up himself; I saw them opened when Mr. Nash came, they contained glass, I went down in the cellar again, when Mr. Nash came I perceived a hole cut in the partition that was not there in the morning.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. Some of that glass I had from glazing a large sky light at Barnet, and some I bought some of it was broke. I cut it into squares and put it into the cellar.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The whole of that is new glass there is a sort of sulpher upon it, it is impossible it could have been cut out of old glass from a skylight it would not have that sulpher upon it.</p>

On the 6th of December between six and seven in the evening, I lost the boots; the prisoner Johnson came into the shop, he asked for a pair of leather boot laces, I said to my young man cut him a pair; I was busily employed, and while he was turning his head to get the leather to cut out the boot laces, he turned himself round to me and said have you moved the boots, I said I had not; he said, they were here just this minute, and when I turned my head they were gone; Mr. Walker came in, I said you have not been playing any tricks with these boots have you; I saw the boy Johnson with a ring on his finger, I said who are you; he appeared small but he is above twenty years of age, I said who are you; you litle rascal you are a thief, I said where do you live; he said, in Sun-street, his father was a shoemaker and kept a room; I said that will not do, if your father was a shoemaker you would not come here to buy boot laces, you would know better how to get them. Johnson came in before Clarke, I asked him about the boots; he said, he knew nothing about them, I said Joe you go for an officer; I made the prisoners sit down in the shop. All in a minute the shop door bursted open, in came a great fellow; he said, Johnson come out, I said what do you do here you rascal; I took him by the collar put him out in the street, Johnson came after me I put him back: the prisoner Clark seized me by the collar and another by the left and pulled me right out on the pavement, as soon as I got out at the next door I saw a man standing, I said, Sir, will you be so good to assist me, these are three thieves; he hit me on the temple and Johnson hit me with his hands both sides of my head; I still held the man, the man said d - n your eyes let me go, I said I will never let you go while I have strength; they then said serve the b - r out. They all hit me as hard as they could, one hit me under the ribs, I struck the man on the head, and whether they struck me at the same time I cannot say; however three of us went down in the mud, I jumped up in a moment, I saw Clark go up Camomile-street, the two others ran another away, I said I will run after you if you go to the devil; I overtook Clark against the Coachmakers Arms in Camomile-street. Johnson was taken up on another indictment, I am sure he is the same man he was in the shop some time, he said his name was Johnson. We never found the boots, we made three more to match them.</p>

I directly said to master, have you taken these boots away; he denied it, my master suspected the boy of the theft; he told me to fetch an officer, I did; and when I came back, Johnson was gone, and

<p>Johnson's Defence. I went into Mr. Archers shop for a pair of boot laces, the young man was going to cut the boot laces he said, master have you taken away the boots from here; he said, no, he said they were here when this lad came in, I said I was sure they were not, they sent for an officer; somebody pulled Mr. Archer out of the shop, Mr. Archer pulled hold of me, I went to the door, there was a great skirmish I walked away.</p>

<p>Q. What did she offer to pay for it. - A. She offered a one pound bank of England note, apparently I asked her what name I was to place on it; she replied, she did not know from whom she received it, she had taken it from a new married couple, living some where in the neighbourhood, she did not know their names. She went out of the shop taking the note with her; and returned in perhaps six or seven minutes, gave me the address, which I put on the back of the note, Gerain, New-court, 2d of December, 1809, she gave me that address. I am sure it is my own handwriting, and I am sure the prisoner is the person that offered it to me.</p>
<p>Q. When next did you see the prisoner after having passed the note on the Saturday - A. I think on the Thursday following she came to Mrs. Clarke's shop to take the note that she had paid me on the Saturday night.</p>
<p>Q. Did she ask for it - A. Yes, Mrs. Clark was in the shop, I was present, I heard her say that she had come for the note and had brought eighteen shillings; I think she gave Mrs.

I did; I went on Wednesday the 6th of December, I went to New-court; I afterwards saw the prisoner in the street in the evening; I heard that she was an old woman; she was turning into the place where she lived; I asked her, if her name was Gerain, she told me, yes. I asked her, if she recollected changing a one pound note at Mrs. Clarke's on the Saturday, she replied, she did; I asked her, if she knew who she took the note of; she said, yes; she took it of a gentleman. I asked her, to give me his name; she said, she could not; she said, she would make enquiry, and call the next morning at Mrs. Clarke's; she said, that she knew the gentleman that she took it off, but she, did not know his name; I left her.</p>

Foy the officer searched her, he found six or seven seven shilling pieces; I asked her again, where it was she found Mrs. Clarke's note; she then said, she found several; I asked her, how many, she said, she believed there might be five or six; I asked if she had any of them by her; she said, she paid them all away; I asked her to whom she had paid them; she said, to different shops; I asked her then, if she had paid one at Mr. Osborne's shop; she said, she had.</p>

She said, she had found the note near the public house, called, the Horns, at St. John-street; she found it at night, there was no other note with it, she said, at that time.</p>
