On the 9th of October three men came to my house, one of the young men had lodged in the house in my husband's time, a twelvemonth before, and the prisoner was another of them; one of them sat down, and said they must have something to drink, but they did not send for any thing; they staid in my house about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour; I was standing with my back towards them at the washing tub. I knew the other two men for two years past; the prisoner I had seen but three times before, one of these men was a sailor, and the other had been a footman.</p>
<p>Q. Before these men came to your shop had you any watch there - A. Yes; I had a watch hanging at the mantle shelf while they were in the room.</p>
<p>Q. Was your back towards the mantle-piece, or your face - A. My back. There was nobody in the room but the three men.</p>
<p>Q. Had you any silver tea-spoon about the room - A. I had a tea-spoon in the cups and saucers, on the mantle-piece. When the man had been gone out five minutes I missed my watch and spoon, there was a silver sixpence on the blue ribbon of the watch.</p>
<p>Q. What was the value of the watch - A. I cannot say. When I missed my silver watch and spoon I immediately went out, I saw neither of them in the street. From information I went to the Yorkshire Grey public-house and took one of them. About eleven o'clock at night; I gave him in charge of the watchman; the other two I could not find that night. The prisoner was taken up upon another charge. I went to the prisoner and saw him, I just saw one eye and his side face, I could not swear to him then; he was in a sailor's dress when he came to my house, and when I saw him in prison he was differently dressed.</p>
<p>Q. Look at him now and tell me whether you can safely say he the man - A. I can take my sacrament oath that he is the man.</p>
<p>Q. Have you got your watch again - A. No, I have not.</p>

<p>Q. Did you see any body go into Mrs. Woodgear's room - A. Yes, I saw three men, one in a sailor's dress, another in a groom's dress, and the other in a blue coat and a pair of corderoy breeches; they staid in the house about a quarter of an hour; I saw one come out first, the other two came out in about five minutes, and Mrs. Woodgear came out five minutes afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. Did you find any thing in the hands of the man that came out first - A. The man in the corderoy breeches came out first, and then the sailor and the groom came out; the groom had the watch in his hand, he gave it to the sailor, and they all ran off together; the prisoner was one of these men, he was in a sailor's dress.</p>

On the 16th of November I was going from Bedford-square to St. Giles's, I was coming down Charlotte-street, I observed the two prisoners at the bar standing against the shop window of Mrs. Clarke in Great Russel street, the boys were in Russel street, against the window I observed that as I came down Charlotte-street; I am sure the prisoners are the boys, I knew Berry before. On my crossing the street, from Charlotte-street to Great Russell-street, I observed Glover making a hole in a pane of glass, I saw an instrument in his hand, I imagined it to be a knife, but was not nigh enough to see what it was, I found this knife on him afterwards; at the time that Glover made a hole in the window, Berry with a piece of wire, drew out this pair of black silk stockings that I have in my hand, Glover took them and put them in his bosom, they walked away together. I was crossing the street at the time this was done, it was done in an instant.</p>

<p>Q. During the time that you went to tell Mrs. Clarke did you lose sight of them - A. They crossed the street and went towards St. Giles's, they went down the lower part of Charlotte-street, and then they went into Dyot-street, it is now called George-street.

<p>Q. Could a person standing at the corner of Church lane see Mrs. Clarke's house - A. No, they could not. Where the woman stood she could not see Mrs. Clarke's house. The prisoner Glover gave the stockings to the woman, she went into Mr. Hinckesman, the pawnbroker in St. Giles's; the two boys stood by the pump in Broad-street, St. Giles's; I followed the woman into the pawnbroker's, I told the pawnbroker the case the same as I have told now; the prisoner, Mary Tooley, was at the further end of the shop with the stockings in her hand, as if offering to pledge them; there was a wainscot partition between me and Tooley, she could not see me; I went and took the stockings out of her hand, the shop was full, she could not get served, she was waiting to be served by another shopman, not the man I told the story to; I took the stockings out of her hand, I thought Mr. Hinckesmen would have kept Tooley, while I went out to apprehended Berry and Glover; I catched hold of Glover and brought him back to Mr. Hinckesman, in the mean time the woman was gone.

<p>Berry's Defence. That young man wants to swear our three lives away, I never saw this young man or woman before in my life.</p>
<p>Glover's Defence. That man while I was at St. Giles's pump came and collered me, he took me into Mr. Hinckesman, the pawnbroker, where this young woman was standing behind the counter with a pair of silk stockings in her hand, he took the silk stockings away from her, and took me to Bow-street, and called Mr. Blackman, I was then searched, they took a bread and cheese knife away from me, and two small boxes, and locked me up.</p>
<p>Tooley's Defence.

I said, the young man that I had the stockings of is out of door, it is not him; Mr. Hickesman said, take them all together, I followed them up Bow-street, I met Mr. Blackman, they passed me, this young man's sister saw me at Bow-street, she said I had a right to be there to clear him if I could, he said she was his sister. Mr. Blakeman came there and took me to the

Last Saturday week the 24th the prisoner came to my bar, we keep a wine vaults at the top of the Old Bailey, the Star by Skinner-street, I think she came to me about eleven o'clock at noon, she asked me if I wanted such a thing as that, she laid down a duplicate, I told her I did not want such a thing; it was a silver tea-pot; I immediately went and fetched my own tea-pot to shew her I was not in want; I had one for nineteen years; she stood with tears in her eyes, and observed that she was greatly distressed; I asked her who she was, she said she was sister to the unfortunate Roberts, and that she wished to make up three guineas by three or four o'clock, to forward a brief for him, or something of that, by four o'clock; I told her I never bought any thing of that sort, that I did not see, and that I never bought any thing without Mr. Sawyer being present; she pressed me very much, I told her when Mr. Sawyer came in I would talk to him about it. She left the duplicate upon the counter, and in half an hour she was to come back to know if I would have it; she did not come, I sent my servant maid for it, as she told me it was a great bargain, she wished me to do so to see what a great bargain it was; I sent a servant with the duplicate, and three pound that it was pawned for, and a shilling to pay the interest.</p>
<p>Q. You gave the ticket with three pound to

No, I had seen her two days before, but never held conversation with her before that morning, I am certain of the person of the prisoner, she came back at four o'clock, after four hours waiting, I had then the prosecutrix's servant, and the constable waiting for her; when she came up to the bar Mr Sawyer was serving, she said she wanted to see Mrs. Sawyer; I went to her, she said, I come to you ma'am to know about the tea-pot; I told her I had got it out, and if she would walk in I had got a friend that would give her the value of the pot; she walked up stairs into the dining room, and was delivered into the hands of the constable.</p>

<p>Q. Do you at all mean to give us to understand that you had been at all familiar with her - A. Not at all, we had something to drink there, from that place we went to Titchfield-street, I was going that way, I went with her to shew her the way, she said she did not know where Titchfield-street was; I said it laid near Oxford marked; she knocked at the door and went in; I said I will stay here till you come up to me, it may not be agreeable for me to come down; she said, come down; I went down; we left the house in about two hours afterwards.</p>

I met the young woman at the door, she said, O God, we are robbed.</p>
<p>Q. In short she went from you - A. Yes, and I went back, as the prisoner said she was coming to tea</p>

<p>Q. When had you last seen these several things that you described as missing - A. I saw them on the same day, I am quite sure of that; I cannot take upon me to say any particular part of the evening.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any part of these things in the day A. I did not.</p>
<p>Q. If these things had been gone, would not the place that they occupied, have left a vacuity, and must not you have seen it - A. I must have seen it, they filled up a part of the window.</p>

The patroles came and gave me notice, after two o'clock, that there were thieves about; I went down Princess-street, after I had made a report at the watchhouse. Where Phillips lives, not quite opposite to his house, I watched a jeweller's shop in the street, I saw it was secure; these three men came across me.</p>
<p>Q. Look at the three men, are you sure they are the three men - A. Yes, I am quite sure of Jones, I knew him to be a bad character, I had seen him in a public-house in Frith-street; I can take upon me to say, that I saw all these three young men, they seemed to be intoxicated in liquor, they were locked armed. Watchman, said they, will you give us something to drink; no, said I, I have got nothing to give you to drink, nor do I know where there is any. They said, if you will come along with us to the watering house, we will give you something to drink; I want none, said I, I have a person to call up that is going in the country, I cannot go with you. I went to the corner of Dean-street, where my stand is.</p>
<p>Q. Can you see from your stand up Princes-street - A. I could if it was moonlight, it was a moonlight night; so Prescott came up to me alone, he said, watchman, what o'clock is it; I said, almost three; I got up and went towards Upper King-street, he went away down Gerrard-street; I saw him go into another street, and went down George-yard, there are carts there, and a great many premises backwards; out of George-yard he went into Princess-street, where Phillips lives.</p>
<p>Q. Then you followed Prescott down into Princes-street - A. Yes; he crossed over the way to Phillips's shop.</p>
<p>Q. You represent Prescott to be alone - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. When he came into Princes-street did you see him join any one - A. No, I saw him go up to Phillips's door, and there he appeared to be talking to some people; I could hear them talk, but not distinguish what they said; I heard a wrench of a shutter or a door.</p>
<p>Q. Could you at the time tell who they were - A. I could not, I did not go nigh them expecting them to be bad people.</p>
<p>Q. You said you could hear them wrenching of something - A. Yes, Prescot said, coming across the street, all is well.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him cross the street - A. Yes, I was in the yard at the time that he crossed the street, and said this. When he came out and crossed the Dean-street, I followed him and sprang my rattle, and my partner, his name is Daniel, he and I took him and brought him to St. Ann's watchhouse, and there he had no name, nor would he tell where he lived.</p>
<p>Q. When you heard the talking of people, can you take upon you to say how many people there might be - A. No, I cannot tell.</p>

<p>Q. You have said that Prescott accosted you, asked you what the hour was, after you had observed what he and the other men were about. You say you retired after you had seen the men to the place where you were accustomed to stand - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Afterwards you would have us understand, Prescott accosted you, and asked what the hour was - Yes, about six or seven minutes afterwards.</p>
<p>Q. You say you heard a wrenching, you and another watchman were watching, was not there some watchmen in that neighbourhood near you - A. There was one.</p>
<p>Q. You say that you communicated to the officer of the night, that there were some thieves about - A. Yes, I did.</p>
<p>Q. And you supposed that these people were about something mischievous and bad - A. I had no suspicion at the time, until after he had passed me.</p>
<p>Q. When you were behind a cart did not you then suspect that something was going wrong - A. I did not suspect particularly then.</p>
<p>Q. There were a great many people going along Princes-street - A. I could hear the noise of more than one or two, the street was very quiet except these people.</p>
<p>Q. The prisoner Prescott you had never seen before that night - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. You have said it was a dark night - A. It was not a very dark night, nor very moon light.</p>
<p>Q. It might be moonlight, was it moonlight or not - A. It might be moonlight, and it might be a dark cloudy night.</p>
<p>Q. Did you not assign it as a reason that you could not see down the street - A. I could see best part of the street down.</p>
<p>Q. Your answer to my Lord was, that if it was a moonlight night you could see down the street - A. I was not in the street, I was in the mews.</p>

<p>Q. Had you any considerable sum of money in your house before the 6th of November - A. I had received an hundred pound on the over night of Mr. Buckley one fifty pound, a forty pound, and a ten; I put them in my pocket to the best of my knowledge, and went out that evening to meet a person, I staid till about half past ten o'clock; after I came home I went to bed, and they remained in my pocket till the next morning as usual, since I have been in business; I took the money out of my pocket, and put them in a drawer without looking at them.</p>
<p>Q. You did not look to see whether the forty pound was there - A. No. On the 25th, in consequence of something that I heard, I went to my drawer, I refered to my cash account, I could not find I had paid away a forty pound note to my creditors; then I looked at my drawer, I could not find the forty pound note that I had received on the 5th; I had not taken the number of the forty pound note, nor any particular mark. They were all clean notes.</p>
<p>Mr. Mears. You had received exactly as hundred pound - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And I think you told us that you went out on that evening - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Therefore as you supposed that you took all this money out you might have dropped the forty pound note for what you know - A. It might be so.</p>

I went there, I saw the prisoner sitting in the parlour in custody; the officer took the mustard out of the bundle and shewed it me. I knew my own name and the hand-writing that was on it. This is the mustard, it was in this paper in my shop, and my name on it as it is now. I am sure it was on my counter when he was there, and I knew it the moment I saw it. I saw it on my counter at twelve o'clock when the prisoner first came there, and after he was gone; it was not a quarter of an hour before he came in again and asked for another twopenny loaf; this paper of mustard cost me five shillings.</p>

From information within fifty minutes after it was taken from my house, I went to Mr. Wegulin, pawn-broker, in Chandos-street; there I found my cambric. It appeared to me to be a whole piece; it had been in my house from the 2d of May, and worth about four pound. It was on the 8th of June that this happened, and I had seen it in my shop on the over night. I have no doubt of its being my property. When I saw it at the pawnbroker's the mark had been rubbed out, but there was a sufficiency left for me to identify it to be mine.</p>

<p>ISSAC JOHNS. I am a shopman to Mr. Jolly. On the 8th of June, between the hours of two and four, the prisoner came into the shop and asked to look at some French cambrics. I shewed her the lowest price we had first; it was not fine enough; I continued shewing her cambrics until I think I shewed her the finest. She desired me to cut her one-eighth of a yard, upon which I opened the cambric so to do, and in stooping to pick up the measure I saw and likewise heard a rustling; I immediately rose up, and the prisoner rose up, and she was in the act of taking money out of her purse; I suspected at the time that the prisoner had taken a piece, but could not challenge her. I had suspicion of her from her first coming in the shop, but on account of her appearance and dress I did not challenge her. The prisoner then asked to look at some print; I sold her some print; when the prisoner paid for the half quarter of cambric and the print she went out, the boy was at the door; when she went out I told the boy to follow her and see where she went; in the mean time I examined the cambrics and missed the piece. The boy came back and told me that she went into Mr. Philpot's the corner of Turnstile. I immediately told him to follow her, and not to lose sight of her.</p>
<p>Q. How lately had you seen that piece of cambric yourself that you missed - A. I had shewed it her at the time I was shewing her the cambric. I am perfectly clear that I had that piece of cambric. The boy went after her, and I have seen the cambric since at the pawnbroker's. I knew it to be my master's; this was on the 8th of June; my master was in the city at the time. When he returned I informed him of it. I am sure as to the person of the prisoner.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. My lord, and gentleman of the jury, the whole that I can say upon this subject is, that I was employed by Mr. Goodwin, as agent, to act according to the best of my skill and judgement; it was not done with any intention to defraud in the least; Mr. Goodwin in the first place might have prevented that; I was involved in difficulties when I first went there, and a person of the name of Philpot first involved me in it. The goods were in the first place bought, they were then pledged; he led me on from one thing to another, but not of the least advantage to me whatever. I have only further to observe I was never engaged to Mr. Becket, my agreement was with Mr. Goodwin to be agent and traveller to him.</p>

<p>Q. He was probably stooping. A. Yes, I observed the prisoner tuck to her mantle in an hasty manner, which created a suspicion in my mind that she had got some of my property, or something that she wished to conceal, I stepped up to her, and opened her mantle and discovered this piece of French cambric, it had my mark on it then, and it has now, it has been in my custody ever since. When I took it from her she expressed sorrow and begged forgiveness, she told me she was a person of respectability, and assured me, it was her first offence. This is the piece of cambric, it stands me in about 4 l.</p>

<p>Robinson's Defence. I was brought innocently into it, I did not know what was in the bundle. I was having a pint of beer in the night at a public house, a young man came in and said my brother wants to see you, I said, what does he want, he said he did not know, go and see. I went up with him, he said he would make a fire, you sit and bear me company a bit, will you fetch me a pot of beer and two pipes of tobacco. I fetched it, up came his brother between 12 and 1 o'clock, we stopped there till half after four, and then we went out. I said, what are you going upon, he said, no matter to you. I thought if it was no harm I would go. We then went into the Edgware Road, and from there we went into Oxford Street, to a public house. They gave me a pint of purl, in came a man, he gave me the bundle, he did not tell me where to take it to.</p>
<p>Field's Defence. On the morning of the 8th of November, I was in bed with my husband, I heard some person call my husband, he spoke to him, and when he came in, he asked him to let him leave a bed for a few hours, he said he was seized upon by his landlord. I did not approve of it, my husband and me had a few words, I was angry with him. He went out to find the man that brought the bed, and the watchman came in and found the things.</p>
