On Tuesday the 19th of February, between twelve and one o'clock, I saw the constable take the prisoner with a basket of linen out of a house in St. Giles's; I followed the constable, he was taking her to Marlborough-street; the prisoner took a belcher handkerchief out of her pocket, and dropped it into a woman's lap that was sitting down as she passed by. I took it out of the woman's lap, and gave it to the constable. This was between twelve and one o'clock; I saw her putting her hand into her pocket again, I said, stop, constable, she has got more handkerchiefs in her pocket. I took her hand out of her pocket, and took out of her pocket five more handkerchiefs; I gave them to the constable; that made six, and the one on her neck was seven. They were all belcher handkerchiefs, but different patterns. The prisoner was very much in liquor.</p>

I apprehended the prisoner at No. 18, Backeridge-street; I went there from information, called her out; I told her she must go up into her room, I would tell her what I wanted with her. This was between twelve and two o'clock; we went up into her own room, she asked me what I wanted with her; she said she would not open the door; she had the key in her hand; I took the key out of her hand, and opened the door myself. In the middle of the room stood a basket, I asked her how she came by it; she said a young man gave it her. I asked her who the young man was; she said she did not know, she had never seen him before, he had promised to bring her some more. I packed up the basket of linen and tied them up; I said you must go with me.</p>
<p>Q. She did not produce the hankerchiefs - A. No. She said, what occasion have I to go with you, you have got your own property. I took the basket of linen and her to Marlborough-street office. She dropped the handkerchiefs, as was related before. I saw the handkerchiefs taken out of her pocket, and one was on her neck; they were all marked the same as the linen in the basket. The prisoner was intoxicated. She told the magistrate that a young man brought them to her to wash, that she had lived with the young man some time. She was committed. I advertized the property. Mrs. Davidson came and claimed the property.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutrix. You said these goods were left in the parlour - A. Yes; the parlour door was open. The basket was tied down when in my parlour, she must have opened them at her own home to have taken the handkerchiefs out. I was sweeping about the door at the time they were taken away. If she had opened them in my room I should have seen her. The shirts were worth a guinea each, when new; they may all be worth about two pounds now. I am not certain. They are all the gentleman's property that sent them me to wash.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. This basket was delivered to me by a man, it had a cloth over it; the handkerchiefs he gave me loose out of his pocket; he told me to go home and he would bring the rest of the things to me. We had something to drink together in the forenoon. I took the handkerchiefs of the man at the end of Oxford-road; I took them home. I asked the man where he came from, he said he had disagreed with his relations. I had been in his company before, we agreed to live together. The constable came and took the things away; he said he would advertise the things, he did not think I came honestly by them.</p>

I asked him the name of the man and his business; he said he neither knew the name or business, nor yet whereabouts at Charing Cross he lived; I asked him his master's name, he refused to tell. I told him I was sure he had not brought it far, we would go back, and I would find out his master. We walked back again, we passed his master's house forty yards, there I found him shuffle the bag, as though he wanted to get it off his shoulder. I told him it was no use. I took him into the Sun public house in Hare-street, and handcuffed him. Mr. Lawrence, a master baker was there, he saw the bag and knew the bag. The prisoner then said, he was sorry for it, he was going to give it to a man that had three children; he had never done so before. Mr. Lawrence went for his master.

On the 28th of February, in the morning, I and Neale were employed to watch Mr. Holmes's premises; we placed ourselves in the little shop, about half after five in the morning a person came past in a direction from Mr. Fletcher's premises. There is a tree by a wall that a person could get over; I saw him go to the great barn, it was light enough, I knew him directly. I have known him between five and six years, and when he passed me I was sure it was him. When he got to the barn I saw a light in the barn. I heard him rattle the deals about as if he was picking them out. I saw him come from the barn with a light, and go to the mahogany house. I saw him come from the mahogany house to the barn; when he got to the barn the light was put out; he then took up his load, and when he passed by where I was waiting for him I opened the door and seized him by the collar; he throwed the deals and mahogany at me, and broke two or three squares of glass; the prisoner struggled very hard; I threw him down, and one of his shoes came off. He arose, collared me, and struck me; I told him I would take him, do whatever he would; he said he would lose his life before he would be taken, and I replied, I would lose my life before I would leave him. I dragged him about ten yards, he got from me and ran five or ten yards. I called out, if he did not stop I would fire; he did not stop, I fired the pistol at him, I hit him; he fell. He arose and came to me, and catched hold of the pistol. We had a struggle; I got it from him. He said, d - n your blood, I have got you, and tried to get at his right hand pocket; I said, Neale, mind, he is going to get a knife, he will stab you; I knocked him down with the pistol; he said, I did not think you would have served me so; I said, is not my life as sweet as yours. After that he was delivered to the constable. From the time that he passed me, to the time that he had the deals on his shoulder, he was never out of my sight. From his person and voice I knew him.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner - A. Yes, ever since he worked for Mr. Holmes, after he lived at Twickenham. I saw nothing till I saw the light in the barn. I heard the boards moving; I saw a person come along with the boards, and my partner seized him; it was the prisoner. As soon as he was seized he threw the deals down; they struggled; he got away, and my partner fired at him. He was afterwards delivered to my master.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. The deals and mahogany are mine.</p>
<p>MR. ADAMS. The prisoner was put into my custody. I found upon him a tinder box, a knife, and skeleton keys.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I never was on Mr. Holmes's premises till that morning. I never stole any thing from him in all my life. I am very sorry for being there then. That man shot me in the side and broke one of my ribs. I have suffered a great deal.</p>
<p>The prisoner called three witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

They remained there about a quarter of an hour; I stood close to the prisoners; I heard Walter say to Fowle, it would not do yet. Fowle said, you know best; she said, stop a bit. Fowle frowned, and Walter said, as I was looking at them, it was one shilling and nine-pence a-yard; then my friend stepped over to me; she said, has that man bought any thing out of the shop; I said, no; she said, the man has walked off with the handkerchiefs.</p>

The woman stopped to see if any of the gentlemen of the shop were looking after them; we gave the alarm. I saw Walters taken.</p>

<p>Q. On the 25th of March had you a piece of handkerchiefs at the door - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Do you remember Mrs. Walsh and the other witness coming in - A. Yes, and I looked where the handkerchiefs hung, I missed them immediately; they were buff plaid handkerchiefs, I had seen them about a quarter of an hour before that.</p>
<p>Q. You pursued and took Mrs. Walter - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Did you ever get the handkerchiefs again - A. No. Fowle was brought to the office at seven o'clock at her examination, the same night.</p>
<p>Q. Did Fowle seem to know Walter - A. No, they seemed to be strange to each other. I catched Walter in Great Russell-street, Covent Garden. When I came to the door she stood by the door, and when she walked away I followed. I thought she might go into a house, and I might catch the man and her together.</p>
<p>Prisoner Walter. Q. I asked Mr. Davis the price of some linen, he told me it was one shilling and nine pence a-yard - A. You did, and when I asked you to walk in you withdrew, and about two minutes after you withdrew Mrs. Walsh came in and asked me if I had sold her any thing.</p>
<p>Prisoner Fowle, Q. to Mrs. Walsh. What time did you see me there - A. I believe, about four.</p>
<p>Walters' Defence. As I was returning from Oxford-road this person talked with me, as I was walking along I stopped at the house of Mr. Craig, I asked that gentleman what the print was a yard; from that I went into St. Martin's court, and returned back again. I heard a person say, that is the woman. I was taken in Russell-street, I willingly went back with him.</p>
<p>Fowle's Defence. The woman is quite a stranger to me. I was at home at my dinner by three o'clock; I was not in Newport-street that day.</p>

After we came out and had drank the pint of beer, I found my trunk gone. I left my trunk within the door, rather inclining to the outside of the door of the tap.</p>
<p>Q. What beer did you drink - A. One pint of beer between us two. When I came out I said to the man that was with me, by the great God my trunk is gone; he said, d - n it, that is a queer thing. I went into the yard to see whether any of the porters had took it, he said he would go and see after it; I stopped at the door, and when he came back Mr. Lee said he saw a man run down the Old Change, and go into Moor's-yard.

<p>Q. Did you see her - A. Yes. I walked to meet her, and when she saw me she threw it upon a bush and walked away. I told some butcher boys, they got a constable, and she was taken. I am sure the prisoner is the person that took the sheet. When she took the sheet she put it under her apron, as if to conceal it, and upon my going up to her she threw it down.</p>
<p>Q. Did she run away - A. She walked away. I was afraid of losing some more; I desired the boys to take her. This is the sheet, it is my mistress's.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. As I was coming past the wind blew the sheet off the bush she put it on, and I put it up again.</p>

I asked a person up stairs if any body had been there, they said no, not to them. I followed the prisoner and over-took her in Long Acre, crossing Bow-street, I asked her what she wanted; she said she had not been there; I asked her what she had in her apron, she said some things of her own.

On the 19th of March, about five o'clock, the prisoner came into the shop and asked me to shew her some print, I shewed her some, she purchased of me to the amount of three shillings, and paid me for it, and while she was buying them she conveyed this piece of print off the counter under her cloak, she went out of the shop. I and another young man followed her and brought her into the shop, and then about two yards from the shop door, when she was brought into the shop a piece of print fell from under her clothes, I immediately sent for a constable. This is the print I am confident it is my masters property.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I went into the shop to purchase two yards of print, I gave three shillings for it, and when I came out of the shop the gentleman brought me back, there was a great deal of print laying on the counter, another young woman stood there, the gentleman saw the print lay at a young woman's feet, they said I dropped it there.</p>
<p>Jury. How near was the other young woman to the prisoner. - A. About a yard distance, the prisoner was not close to the counter, but the other young woman was, the prisoner was about two yards in the shop, and the print lay about a yard from the counter.</p>
<p>The prisoner called two witnesses who gave her a good character.</p>
