On the 7th of December last, the prisoner was brought to our workhouse from Shadwell police office; he remained with us until the night of the 10th, and on the night of the 10th he was locked up in a room adjoining the oakum room. On that night, between eleven and twelve o'clock, after I was gone to bed, I heard a noise; it continued louder and louder. I was alarmed. I got up, fearing for the safety of the people in the house. I called up Burn; Burn and me went to the door of the oakum room. I then found the prisoner in the oakum room, and the door was fastened on the inside. When I went to bed it was fastened on the outside. We called to the prisoner; he never spoke. We broke the door open; I saw the prisoner; he was standing forward, with an axe lifted up. Burn attempted to lay hold of the prisoner by the collar; in the mean time I rushed forward to catch the axe. He shifted the axe; he struck me a blow with the back of the axe; it stunned me completely. I was so stunned I do not know how I got the other blow.</p>
<p>Q. When you recovered yourself in what state did you find your face - A. I had a deep cut at the side of my nose; my nostril was cut quite round, and my lip was cut at the bottom; I believe it was done with the front of the axe. One of my teeth was knocked out, and there is another tooth coming out now.</p>
<p>Q. How long had you known this man - A. About a fortnight before that he was brought to us from the police office; he was with us three or four days.</p>
<p>Q. From the whole of your observations upon him do you believe him to be a man in his senses, or not - A. I now believe him to be an insane man.</p>

<p>Q. You knew nothing of your house being broken open - A. Not till I returned home. I returned home about half past seven in the evening. It was daylight when I went out, I and my wife only live in the house. I rent the house myself. When I went from home at four o'clock in the afternoon I left my wife at home, and when I came home the two officers shewed me the knife taken from out of my window; it had the appearance of being mine. I do not know what number of knives I had in my window, and they shewed me another knife that they had broke the window with.</p>
<p>Q. Had the window been broken - A. Yes; the pane of glass had been broken at the bottom by a knife.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether it had been broken before you went out - A. It had been cut on the Friday; I mended it, and it was broken again on the Monday.</p>
<p>Q. Was it broke before you went out - A. No, it was perfectly sound before I went out, and perfectly safe. I had seen it about half an hour before I went out. I know nothing of the breaking of it; it was done in my absence.</p>

<p>Q. There was a candle in the window, was there - A. Yes, but I did not observe any glass broken then. In the course of a few minutes after, two officers came in with the boys.</p>
<p>Q. What time was that - A. About half past six, or near seven. They asked me if I had lost anything out of the window, or whether it was broken. I looked then.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any thing - A. I did not know then what had been exactly in the window; there were knives in the window such as the officers shewed me.

In going down Shoreditch we observed three boys standing at Mr. Stotter's window. We heard something crack, and the three boys ran away. This was about half after six; it was dark; the snow was on the ground. We observed a lady come from another room into the shop, and take the light out of the shop window, and put it in again; she then went back into the back room again. We waited about three minutes, and the boys returned. Fowler put his fingers into the inside of the window, and laid hold of something; I do not know exactly what it was; he dropped what he had in his fingers as soon as we laid hold of him; he dropped something by the window that he had got in his hand. Woolfe was then standing close to him as possible. We took the two prisoners into Mr. Stotter's shop; the other boy ran away. Mr. Andrade brought me this knife, saying, it was given to him by a gentleman at the next door, at his house, by Mr. Knighton. On searching the prisoner Fowler we found another knife; we compared this knife to the frame of the window where the glass had been broken; it fitted the marks in the frame where the glass had been broken, and the mark in the putty. The glass was broken in four or five pieces.</p>
<p>Q. Could he get his hand in - A. I do not think the hole in the glass was big enough to admit his hand; his fingers were in. I produce some of the pieces of glass, with the putty sticking to it. I asked Mrs. Stotter if she had lost any thing; she said she could not tell, but such knives as that were in the window.</p>

We asked Mrs. Stotter if she had lost any thing. She said she did not know exactly what was in the window. After that, Mr. Andrade came in with this knife. This is the knife that was in Fowler's possession; it fitted the marks in the putty and in the wood. Mrs. Stotter saw us fit the knife to the place. We took the two prisoners into Mr. Stotter's shop. I catched hold of Fowler, and something dropped; I could not see what it was Armstrong catched hold of the other. We asked Mrs. Stotter if she had lost any thing; she said she did not exactly know what was in the window. After that, Mr. Andrade came in with this knife, and this is the knife that was in Fowler's pocket; it fitted the place between the putty and the wood. Mr. Stotter saw us fit the knife to it. The little boy ran away. The two prisoners were standing as close together as possibly they could.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Look at that knife - A. I cannot swear to it. I had a number of knives like this laying at the bottom of the window close to the glass where it was broken.</p>
<p>Q.How many knives had you there - A. I do not know, a great number. I don't know the number. I have every reason to believe this knife belongs to me.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner, Hartley Smith - A. Yes, he lived in our house four days. I took him in, and gave him some employment. He came to live with me on the 14th of August; he left me on the 19th.</p>
<p>Q. Did you lose any watches from your shop - A. I went out of town on the 17th of August; I returned in about a week; the prisoner was gone then. I had a letter sent me that he absconded on the 19th with four watches, and when I returned I missed four watches that I had left in my shop when I went away. They were silver watches, worth about three guineas each.</p>
<p>Q. What did your family consist of - A. A housekeeper I left behind me and a son; he is gone to sea now; he was at home then. The housekeeper is here. The watches were pledged, and the tickets sent home in a letter on the 19th. The officer has the watches; he happened to be in the shop at the time the letter came in. The officer has got the property. I took the prisoner in out of charity. I did not expect he would have robbed me. I had no suspicion of the man. I had seen him twice before I employed him.</p>
<p>SARAH UNDERHILL. I am housekeeper to Mr. Winter. On the 14th of August, the prisoner came to our shop to work; he continued to work there until the 19th. Between the hours of seven and eight he came to work on the 19th. I gave the prisoner the watches to hang up. I had the care of the watches, and took them down and hung them up, but being busy I gave them to the prisoner on the 19th to hang them up, about eight o'clock in the morning. There were a great many more watches. Them four were taken down of a night and put into a glass case. I took them into my bed-room of a night. I gave them to him about eight o'clock in the morning; I saw him hang them up. I was in a room adjoining. After he had hung the watches up he went out to breakfast; about ten o'clock he came back; he said he had heard of a situation for

He stopped at work until one o'clock, and then he went out to dinner. He never returned. On the Saturday week I saw him at the police office. About two o'clock Mr. Winter's son came home; I said to him, William is not come back yet. The prisoner had hung up watch-cases in the places where the watches had been. I did not miss the watches until Robert came home; he missed the watches, and
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181402160006"/>then I missed them. He said he had robbed him; I went to see, and I saw the watches were gone.</p>
<p>Q. How many watches were gone - A. Four. The prisoner never returned.</p>
<p>JOHN BUTLER. I am an officer of Shadwell office. The prisoner was given into my charge on the 5th of this month, at New Prison. He was first taken to Hatton Garden office. On the 19th of August I was at Mr. Winter's house when a letter came with these four duplitates enclosed. The letter was directed to Mr. Winter.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go to Mr. Winter's house - A. I was sent for, and when I was at the house a letter came with the four duplicates of the four watches. The letter bears

In the absence of Mr. Winter, my master, before I left him I heard of a situation at Uxbridge that would suit me a great deal better than his, accordingly, as I had a few shillings in my pocket I went, and when I went I had come too soon by a fortnight, and as I had left my master without any warning I did not return. I went to my father. I came up to town about a fortnight since, when I was taken into custody. I never pawned any of these watches.</p>

I had shut the front door before I sat down. I happened to turn my head over my shoulder; I perceived my shop door open, and the candles flaring. I proceeded to the parlour door; I saw a man laying down upon his hands and knees. I did not hurry; I thought it was one of my own men getting bread for his tea. The person run out, and I after him. I caught him. When I brought the prisoner in I looked how the till was. When I went in the parlour I left the till close shut. I had just served a customer before I sat down to tea. I caught the prisoner about two doors off.</p>
<p>Q. When you first saw him was he near the till - A. He was laying on his hands and knees; he was taking the till. I heard the till rattle when he went out. When I came in the till was hanging by the two bind quarters. My man was at the door; he heard me run out of the shop; he came up out of the kitchen, and stood at the door.</p>

When I went to the office I could not say what precise sum was in the till. My wife had taken some halfpence out and put some more in. That is the precise sum when I came back. When I took the prisoner he asked me what I wanted of him; I said, if you come in the shop I will tell you. He said, you are mistaken, I am not the man. I am sure I am not mistaken; I never lost sight of him. He tried to get away; I tore his shirt and waistcoat; I took him to Worship-street office.</p>
<p>Prisoner. He told me that I had stolen a loaf at first.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. There was a loaf on the counter; I do not know whether he meaned to take it or no. I had not left a loaf in that place on the counter; there were loaves in the window.</p>

Before I went out, one of Mr. Fisher's young men came in; he said, he does not work at our house, nor had not for two years past. He said nothing to that, but declared his innocence, and that he never was taken before a magistrate, and when he was taken to the office the officers knew him very well.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was coming from Hill-street, and passing by the prosecutor's shop I saw a young man outside of the door; he looked like a butcher. The prosecutor told a gentleman he saw a young man run out of the shop and go across the road; I said if I knew where the young man was I would find him. I did not know where he was.</p>

On Saturday the 29th of January, about three in the afternoon, I perceived these two pieces of print taken down from where I put them in the morning. I perceived the two prisoners walking up and down before the house, and I saw these two pieces of print taken off the line where they were put in the morning by themselves.</p>
<p>Q. Where was the linen - A. Inside of the shop. They were hanging up inside of the shop. I cannot say who took them down. When I perceived them taken down I went into one corner of the shop and watched, having suspicion. I watched the prisoners walking up and down at one corner of the shop; after the prints were taken down I watched there for a quarter of an hour, and when they had an opportunity the prisoner Roke came in and put one of them on the top of the other.</p>
<p>Q. Roke entered the shop, did he - A. Yes, and put one of the prints on the other; he clapped his apron over them.</p>
<p>Q. He had an apron on then - A. Yes, he was in the act of taking them away; somebody came past at the time.</p>
<p>Q. Had he moved them from where they were - A. Yes; he had taken them down from where I put them. Somebody coming past at the time, Thatcher gave him a signal to be off. Thatcher was waiting outside at the door at the time; somebody came by; he gave him a signal to run off. I pursued him; both run off contrary ways. I pursued, and took the prisoner Roke;

I was in the shop; as soon as I was disengaged the other witness came up, and told me that the prints were not in the same state as he put them in the morning; that he had seen the prisoners walk by the shop several times. I then went and watched as well as him. I observed the prisoners walk by the shop twice; the third time the prisoner Roke stepped into the shop; he took one piece of print up from a box; he put it on the other; he put his apron over it, and as he was going to take it away the other prisoner gave him a signal that somebody was coming.</p>
<p>Q.What was the signal - A. He touched him, which I understood to be a signal; then he dropped the print out of his apron, and run away. One of the pieces of print cost Mr. Hughes two shillings and four pence a yard, and the other one shilling and ten pence. They are forty-eight yards; twenty-four yards each. That was the prime cost.</p>

<p>Thatcher's Defence. I was twenty yards off when one of these gentlemen took me.</p>
<p>Roke called two witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>

The prisoner came into our shop on the 21st of January, between five and six in the evening; she asked for a ball of cotton and a halfpenny worth of needles; she paid for them. She then asked to look at some blue ribbon. I took out the ribbon drawer, and shewed it her; she fixed upon one; I measured it for her; she said that was not enough, and when I shewed her another she objected to its colour; she asked me if I would change it if it was not the right colour. I said I could not change it after I had cut it off the piece. She then asked me to give her a pattern, which I did, and then she went out.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any thing when she was gone - A. No, I had not missed them until they were brought in. The ribbon was brought in by the officers. It was about eight o'clock when they were brought in.</p>

<p>MATTHEW HOLMES. I am in the employ of Messrs. North and Simpson. In consequence of what had passed on the 12th of February, I watched the prisoner; he left the warehouse at ten o'clock; that was sooner than usual of a Saturday night; I followed him; he turned up Little Bridge-street; it is a bye way, very private. I observed him to stoop near a dunghill; he took something out of his pockets, and put there: he returned to the warehouse; in less than half an hour he left the premises again, at eleven o'clock. I then followed him again; I saw him stoop at the same place where he had stooped before. He then appeared to take up something, and put it into his pockets: he went on towards his home, as I presume; I followed him, and stopped him on Ludgate-hill; I felt in his pocket, and found some soap there. I told him he must return again to his masters. He went with me. I found his pockets to contain three pounds weight of soap. Upon the soap being produced, the prisoner said, in the presence of Mr. Graham, it was the first time he had taken any thing, went down on his knees, and hoped he would forgive him. The other soap is here. This soap I found in the prisoners pockets is both yellow and mottled; it is worth three shillings; it is three pounds in the whole. I cannot swear to soap.</p>

<p>Holmes. I went with Harper to search the prisoner's lodgings; we found about forty or fifty pounds weight of soap, cut up in pieces.</p>

On the 10th of February, about a quarter before four in the afternoon, I went into the privy; I had not been there above two minutes before this man came in, he went into the factory; he looked in, and went out again; he looked in the yard, and went into the tripe-shop. I heard the water rattle in the water tub, where the goods lay; he came out of the tripe-house. He went across the yards, he saw a blue apron hanging on a brick wall, drying, he took it, and tied it round him. I stepped out of the privy, and said, halloo, my friend, what are you going to do with that; he looked over his left shoulder, saw me, he flung the apron down, and directly he ran out of the yard, and I after him; I collared him, and took him to Mr. Bennett. He had got the tripe wrapped up in his jacket.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know any thing of the prisoner - A. I saw him once before, he came to see one of the men that worked there; he said he was an Irishman. The tripe that he had in his jacket was nine pounds and a half; he took it out of the backs.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I took it, and he took it from me again; I am a poor cracked brain fellow. I did not know what I was about; the devil was tempting me to take it. I have been in his Majesty's service ever since the day I was born, and now next May I am going to serve my king and country until I die in glory.</p>

I saw him pull my watch from me; he had got hold of the ribbon; the watch he had not got hold of. I tried to catch hold of it; I could not. I saw it in his hand. I called out to my brother that was with me, to assist me; he could not; there were so many about me. When he got hold of me they took Levy from me. I was surrounded by twenty I dare say of them. After I found my watch was gone, about a minute, I found another hand come out of my breeches pocket, which hand took my note out.</p>
<p>Q. Whose hand was that - A. The prisoner Harding's hand that was in my breeches pocket. As soon as I had lost the note I went and informed the inward keeper; he asked me what reward I would give; I told him I would give a pound for my watch.</p>
<p>Q. Who said what reward would you give - A. One of the turnkeys; I said, I would give a one-pound note reward. I came again on the next day, Sunday, the 27th, to see whether my watch was come forward; the turnkey said, he could restore the watch to me, but he must have a pound first; I gave a pound in silver into his hands, and I received my watch.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181402160012"/>Q. Are you clear that Levy was the man that took your watch - A.Yes, I am positive to that, and I am sure that Harding took the note. After I found the situation I was in, I remarked the people that I catched in the fact.</p>
<p>Q.Who gave you the watch - A. The inner locksmans, I believe they call him; he unlocked the gate.</p>
<p>- EVERETT. I am a shoemaker; I am brother-in-law to Woodhouse; I married his sister. On the 26th of December, I went to see a friend of mine that is confined in Newgate for a small misdemeanour, and just as we entered into the middle yard my mother called out he had lost his watch. I was about a yard and a half behind. I saw the watch in Levy's hands. I catched hold of Levy, and was trying to get the watch; the others came round, and put me away. I could not see what became of the watch at all.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any more - A. No; the others all rushed up stairs; my brother came to me, and said he had lost the five-pound note out of his pocket.</p>
<p>Q. to Woodhouse. Did you ever recover your watch - A. Yes, here it is; my five-pound note I never recovered. I offered fifty shillings reward for it. I understood the five-pound note was taken from the prisoner by the wardsman.</p>
<p>Q. What kind of a push was it when your watch was taken from you - A. It was a squeezing up against me; there were a dozen or twenty round me; no violence; I think they call it a hustling; it was only pressing against me. I had a good deal of showing about; no blows was struck, it was done in so short a time, and when they had got their prey, there was a signal, a whistle; they then all flew up stairs directly.</p>
<p>Levy's Defence. I was in the yard; I saw a row in the yard. He did not see the watch in my hand; I know nothing at all about it.</p>
<p>Harding's Defence. He was two or three times in the yard; he never said any thing about me till last Wednesday. He told Mr. Davis, the turnkey, it was a man in a velveteen jacket. I never wore a velveteen jacket.</p>

On Monday the 7th of February, I saw the three prisoners in Holborn, at the shop window of Mr. Grosvenor, and while they were there, the prisoner Burrell put his hand into his right hand pocket and pulled out a knife from that pocket; at Mr. Grosvenor's window he opened the knife and put it to the putty of the window, and as soon as he put it to the putty of the window I saw the glass fly across. Mr. Grosvenor came up to the door, and spoke to the lads, and they ran away. I followed them, and Mr. Grosvenor followed me to inform me that the window was broken. I then followed the boys down Holborn, until they came to Fleet-market, to a linen-draper's shop on the right hand side of the market. I followed them down Watling-street, where they cracked another window, and after they had done so a person disturbed them; they crept into an orange shop and stole some oranges and nuts. I pursued them to Mr. Atkinson's shop in Lombard-street. At this time it was about seven o'clock. Burrell placed himself at Mr. Atkinson's shop window; Solomon and Morris were at the door watching the motions of the persons in the shop. Burrell pulled out a knife and put it to the putty of the window; it gave a crack, and a piece of glass came out. I heard the crack. At the moment the knife was applied to the putty a piece of glass came out; then he left the window, and joined Morris and Solomon. Burrell left the window again, and Solomon and Morris left the door and went to the door adjoining the shop, in Lombard-street. Burrell put his hand into the window, and pulled out a shoe, which shoe he gave to Solomon, and Solomon gave it to Morris. Burrell then returned, and took the second shoe; he gave it to Solomon, and Solomon gave it to Morris as he had done before. He was then returning to the window again, and at that time a person was coming out with the shutters to shut up the shop. I then laid hold of Solomon and Morris, and on

On Thursday the 10th of February, about eight o'clock in the morning, I had occasion to go into the cellar; I saw a piece of butter in the tub in the cellar. The prisoner was Mr. Wood's porter. When I saw the butter I was going to breakfast, and as I hardly got out of the door the prisoner was brought back by the officer. I went down into the cellar; I found the butter had been cut. The officer that brought back the prisoner, produced the butter in the shop; it appeared to be cut from the same piece in the cellar, which I had before seen. There was about twelve ounces of butter, worth nine-pence.</p>
<p>SAMUEL SHEPHARD. I am an officer. In consequence of information that Mr. Wood's porter was robbing him, I watched for the prisoner. On Thursday I met the prisoner and let him pass me some way, and seeing him walk rather awkward I followed him and stopped him; I asked him what he had about him; he said, nothing but broken victuals which the cook had given him by the order of Mr. Wood. I searched him; in his breeches I found three quarters of a pound of butter. I took him back to Mr. Wood; he then said he had the butter given to him in the street.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I have been trusted with various sums of money, I never made any mistake with the money; and on last Saturday night Mr. Wood's cook gave me some soup, and when I turned it into a dish I saw a silver spoon; I took it back on Monday morning. I throw myself on your lordship's mercy, and beg Mr. Wood's pardon.</p>

<p>Q.When was it you saw a half piece - A. On the 19th, the next day. I perceived a piece and a half was left, and that half a piece was gone.

On Wednesday I mentioned it to Blanch; the other prisoner was on shore. I told him on Tuesday I saw the two pieces underneath the shot locker, that it had been removed. Blanch said Brennan was on shore; we should tell him of it; he added that it would be better to tell the captain, and we should not be blamed, and then they would make a seizure of it. He said there were two boys who had run away, it might be imputed to them, and they would be transported for it. We

I saw Brennan get out bed. I saw one of the prisoners take the Russia duck from under the bed cabin; he placed it in the clew of his hammock. The other was by at the time. Then Brennan got on his back; he was partly dressed. I cannot say which of them laid it on his back; they were both together.

On his being informed he was not at home he went into the back parlour; he staid there about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour, and then said he could stay no longer. He told me he had made an appointment with Mr. Benham. After he had sat there some time he went out. In about half an hour after he was gone I missed my husband's gold watch.

Yes, I remember seeing him at my master's house on Tuesday the 5th of October; he came there; he asked me if my master was at home; I said, no, he was not at home, but he would be at home at five o'clock; he said, that was strange, he had promised to meet him there at half past two. He said no more to me, but walked down the passage into the back parlour. I am sure he is the man. The next time I saw him again was a fortnight ago last Saturday.</p>

<p>Q. Had you ever seen him before - A. No, never; he is the same man. When I gave him the six pounds fifteen shillings for the watch, he took out of his pocket three gold seals and a key. I gave him fifteen shillings for them. I asked him where he got the watch; he said he bought it of the maker, Mr. Watford, in Ryder-street, St. James's. He said he was going to Gibralter the next week, it was of no use his pledging it, he might not be back in time to redeem it, but if I had it when he came back he would purchase it again of me.

I set out immediately to go to Bow-street; in my way there I learned that Mr. Essex of the Strand had been making enquiry about the watch. I went to Mr. Essex; he said it was his daughter's watch. I delivered the watch to Mr. Essex; he desired me to stop the man if ever I saw him. On the 22nd of January the same man came -</p>
<p>Q. That is the prisoner - A. Yes; and offered me another watch to pledge. I looked steadfastly at him; he said, I sold you a gold watch a few months ago, have you parted with that. I told him I had, and I immediately sent for an officer; the officer came; I gave him into custody.</p>
<p>ANTHONY ESSEX. I received the watch; I gave my daughter the watch.</p>
<p>Q. to Prosecutrix. Can you swear to the watch - A.No.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I can swear to the watch.</p>
<p>Mr. Essex. I gave the watch to my daughter; I can swear to it; the number of it was entered in my book, and this watch answers to that number. I know the watch from the general appearance of it; the maker's name on it is W. Watford, Ryder-street, St. James's. I gave it to my daughter a long time ago; it is near three years ago.</p>

On Monday afterwards, about six o'clock in the evening, I passed the woman prisoner in the passage, I asked her what she wanted, it was dark; she said, she wanted to go into the privy. I said, I think you are the woman that robbed me last week; I had her taken into custody. My wife told me she had confessed taking the things, and selling them to Bunney.</p>

I asked him how he came by it; he said, a gentleman gave it him to carry in Somerset-street, Whitechapel; he did not know the man nor where he was to carry it to. As soon as we laid hold of him the others ran away. This is the hamper; I took the prisoner to the office.</p>

I told Faulkener's wife that her husband was in custody; I asked her for the things in the desk; I found nothing in the desk, nor in that room. At last I got a box open, I found the things now produced; there are twelve brush-boards, two of them are brushes completely.</p>
<p>Prosecutor. I know these brush-boards to be my property; I never sell them in that state. At the office the prisoner confessed of having taken them.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I am a young hand with Mr. Kent. When I saw a board lay waste I picked it up. Some of the boards are worn out by paper-stainers; brush-boards have been worn out by the paper-stainers.</p>
<p>The prisoner called five witnesses, who gave him a good character.</p>
