As I was passing along Whitechapel, an officer accosted me, and took me in custody, for the same charge for which I had been discharged last sessions.</p>

I gave notice at the office.</p>

A man that keeps a horse and cart in the yard where my warehouse is, gave me information, his name is Westey; he came and told me my doors were open.

I told her, I had a search warrant, and asked her who lived there; she said she and her husband. I pulled out a drawer; Mr. Clark saw some candles he knew. I begged of her if she had any more to shew them to them to Mr. Clark and me. I knew her husband by name and person. Me and my son searched the parlour; we found in a drawer in the cupboard a great number of house-breaking implements; this is one of the crows, a dark lanthorn, and a pistol, loaded with ball.

<p>Q. When you first saw her, did she tell you the mode of her life - A. She said, she was going to make some base coin, that her daughter was going to Ireland with. She said no more at that time. This was the first time. This conversation was in the first floor front room; she took me to that room as her own room.</p>
<p>Q. Do you recollect the day you went again - A. No, I cannot. On the day she was taken up I went there again, between twelve and one in the day, and I went there in the evening; I saw a little girl belonging to the second floor; she asked me who I wanted. I got up to Mrs. Dunn's door; I knocked at the door. The little girl asked me again who I wanted; I said I did not want her. After my knocking at the door, Mrs. Dunn aid to her daughter, Mrs. Leonard open the door, I do not mind her.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250004"/>Q. Did Mrs. Dunn know your voice - A. Yes. I spoke loud enough for any one in the room to hear me. The door was opened immediately. I heard the door unbolted. I went into the room; I found both the prisoners there, Mrs. Dunn and her daughter, Mrs. Leonard, when I went in. In the first instance, I saw two files and some scouring-paper on the floor; Mrs. Dunn took them up, and took them in the second floor herself. I sat down upon the bed, and had some conversation with Mrs. Leonard. While I was sitting down, Mrs. Leonard took several blanks from under the coverlid.</p>
<p>Q. What do you mean by blanks - A. I mean pieces of metal in the form of sixpences.</p>
<p>Q. You stated, they were taken from under the bed-quilt - A. Yes. Some of them were round, and some crooked; they were not all of one size; they were all in the shape of sixpences.</p>
<p>Q. Had you and
<persName id="t18140525-3-person65">Leonard</persName> any conversation about them - A. Yes; I asked her to let me look at them; she gave me two or three to look at. Upon my looking at them, I observed some of them had been coloured before; I told her so. She said, they had, but they had been spoiled, and Leonard said, she meaned to colour them again; she intended to make some to go to Ireland. She said, she intended to go there, and intended to make a sufficient quantity to go there.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see her do any thing with these blanks - A. I saw her crook them with her teeth. Dunn was in the second floor all this time.</p>
<p>Q. Dunn was not in the room at this time - A. No. I observed they were small; Mrs. Leonard said, she could pass them better small than large.</p>
<p>Q. How long did you remain there - A. An hour and a half. Mrs. Dunn came down just as I was going away. Mrs. Dunn said are you going away; will not you stay to tea, or return to tea. I said, I did not know; perhaps I might. I went away. I went to Hatton Garden office, and passing along Clerkenwell, I met Read, junior, the officer; I communicated to him what had passed. He appointed me to meet him at six o'clock at Hatton Garden office. I met Read at the office at six o'clock in the evening; I then was taken before the magistrate, and gave information. I was to meet Read, senior, junior, and Limbrick, at the Black Horse, in Barbican, at seven o'clock in the evening. I went to the Black Horse; I met the Reads and Limbrick. I then went to Mrs. Dunn's; I found both the prisoners in their own room.</p>
<p>Q. Were both of the prisoners there - A. Yes. I staid there about an hour, and returned to the officers; I gave the officers information of what I had seen. The officers went immediately to the prisoners house. I accompanied them to the door, and then I left them. I don't know any thing further.</p>
<p>Mr. Alley. How long have you been acquainted with these two women - A. About two years.</p>
<p>Q. Where is your poor husband - A. He is in prison, for an eighteen-penny token. I have likewise been in prison for an eighteen-penny token. I have never been a witness upon any occasion before.</p>
<p>Q. You know they are indicted for high treason, and that there is a reward, do you not - A. I don't know it.</p>
<p>Q. What are you - A. I am a straw bonnet maker; I work for Mr. Medley, a straw bonnet maker, in Sloane-street, No. 145. I never heard of a reward.</p>

<p>Q. Did the woman that has just stood down, give you any information against the prisoners - A. She did. She afterwards took me to the house, and there I found the prisoners at the bar, on the 21st of April, near eight o'clock; I found the prisoners door shut. I expected to find it open. A woman looked out of the window. I said, I wanted to come in; she said, she would let me in directly. I heard persons running up and down stairs. I threw up the parlour sash, and got in at the window; I broke the parlour door open, it being locked on the outside. I instantly let the other officers in. I heard a great noise of running up and down stairs, and I heard something fall, as if out of the window upon the tiles, I heard it jingle as money would; I heard something fall that I supposed to be money. After I had opened the street door, and let my father in and Limbrick, Limbrick and I went up stairs into the first floor; there we saw the two prisoners; the door was open. Mrs. Leonard had her cap and handkerchief off, and seemed much torn about, and much agitated; the other seemed very much frightened. I told them I had a search warrant, to search on suspicion of coining; they said, they did not know any thing about it; they did not do it there; they did not know what we meaned. We then searched about different parts of the room. I found eight shillings and sixpence in good money upon Mrs. Leonard; no bad. Limbrick searched Dunn, and found a quantity of halfpence. Between the bed and the quilt, I found eight blanks; in the tinder-box on the shelf over the mantle-piece, I found a coloured sixpence, and some cuttings of metal. Under the bedstead I found several more blanks, and some more cuttings, and more pieces of metal, apparently as though they had been sixpences before; they were blank sixpences, not coloured; they were in the chamber-pot; I emptied the pot. Here is one sixpence coloured, the same as what I found on the shelf over the the fire place. I found this whitening and cream of tartar together. In different parts of the room I found sand-paper, it is all over brass, and here is some yellow soap. In the second floor, I found a file; it is all over brass. Mrs. Dunn went and sat down by the fire place; I observed her hand go. I went to the fire immediately, and took a piece of saltpetre out of the fire. In searching the cupboard, I found this hammer and iron plate; at that time the iron plate was all over brass, and the hammer appeared to have been used recently. I then went up into the second floor; I found in searching on the shelf twenty-four bad shillings and bad sixpences coloured, and on the shelf I found cream of tartar, three bottles; and these clothes; they appear to have been stained with something wet. The prisoners said, they were innocent of what they were charged with. That is all I produce. Then I took
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250005"/>the prisoners into custody. The two prisoners owned that they lodged together. I asked them whether they occupied that room; they said, they did; they lived together.</p>

<p>Q. We understand the younger Read got in, and opened the door - A. He did. I went in with the other Read. There was a window on the staircase open; it looked into the back yard; it is a small yard; there is a shed underneath the window; it adjoins the house. In that back yard, I looked out there by hearing a noise of something jingling; I was satisfied there was something thrown out there. In looking out of this window, I found this apron laying on the tides of the shed; I went and took it; it contained three files, a parcel of cuttings, and blanks.</p>
<p>Q. What are the blanks - A. They are metal blanks for sixpences. I also found six sixpences finished; they wore on the tiles; thrown out in paper as they are now, in separate papers. I proceeded to look into the privy.</p>
<p>Q. In the place where you found this apron, could that be thrown quite easy out of this window - A. Yes, quite easy; the shed is underneath. I then went to the privy; there I saw some cuttings on the seat, and these three files; on the teeth of them they were full of brass filings; they are the same filings as would come off pieces of this metal. In the privy I saw some blanks; Read will speak to that; he took it. Then I went into the house. There is a cupboard underneath the stairs, in the passage, I found this cup and this rag over it.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know what is in the cup - A. It is stuff for rubbing over the blanks to produce the colour of silver; there is aquafortis in it. I then went up stairs; Mrs. Dunn was in the room. She said; where did you get that from; I know nothing of it.</p>
<p>Q. Had you asked her any question about that cup - A. I had not. It was just as I came into the room; having it in my hand, and nothing being said to her, she made that observation in the room. I found these scissars; they have brass upon them, and this flat iron, with the appearance of brass on it now. I found this cloth, it is stained with aquafortis, with wiping off. These pieces of metal were in the room, and some sand paper. I perceived Dunn throw something towards the fire when I went into the room; I raked it out. I took out a sixpence, some cuttings, and some sand paper; that is all I found. Afterwards I saw Macdonald and Conner in the room; they were both taken up, and afterwards discharged. This table me and Read found in their room; it looked apparently as if they had been working upon it; there was the white stuff that I have described, some of the stuff out of the cup. It appeared to me as if they had been working on the table. The younger prisoner asked me how we came by out information; I told her that was not a fair question. She said, she supposed it was that b - y But Fewhey; for there had nobody else been in the room but her.</p>

<p>MARY MATTHEWS. In July last, I lived at No. 5,

I found my door open, and the padlock put on the table, and no one in the house. I left my door padlocked on the outside, and locked the other lock besides. I am now talking of my room-door. I first went to my trunk, and missed my money. I cannot say whether my trunk was locked or not. I missed all my money, and two aprons and a petticoat out of the room; a habit shift, three guineas in gold, four seven-shilling pieces, and some silver, but I do not know how much. I had all my money in my hand that morning. This is the receipt, I paid my landlord that morning. The prisoner had lodged in my house two Christmas's, I believe. She lodged in my
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250006"/>house last July until the 3d of May. In November I was robbed again. On the 3d of May, I saw something on her head that I was robbed of on the 5th of July. The edging of one of my habit shirts was on her head before that. I saw the edging in her room on the top of her drawers. That was on the Friday before the 3d of May. On the 3d of May I took the prisoner up.</p>
<p>Q. How came you to go in her room on the Friday before the 3d of May - A. A young woman was at work in the room; I went in. The prisoner was not at home. Seeing that, I was thoroughly convinced who had robbed me on the 6th of July. On the 3d of May I went to Mr. Gillmore and got a warrant, and had her room searched, and had her taken up. She then had the edging on her head upon her cap; the edging I knew was mine. Mr. Gillmore found the duplicate of two of my husband's shirts.</p>

I went to the prosecutrix's house; I found the prisoner at home in her own apartment. I told her I had a warrant to search for some stolen goods that I suspected she had got. Mrs. Matthews was with me. The prisoner begged Mrs. Matthews not to hurt her. I desired Mrs. Matthews to give her no answer, but to let me proceed in the search. I found in the prisoner's box in her room several duplicates. (the prisoner produced me the key), among which is the duplicate of two shirts pledged at Mr. Graham's, in Stratton-ground. I then desired Mrs. Matthews to bring to me her padlock of her door. She did. The key which the prisoner gave me to open her box, locks and unlocks the prosecutrix's padlock; and the key of the prisoner's room door, unlocks and locks the prosecutrix's door. I asked the prisoner if she had not heard that Mrs. Matthews had been robbed; she said, yes, she had. She before had said that she found them on the stairs. I then said, if you had, why had not you told Mrs. Matthews so before. The pawnbroker attends here with the things. I have the duplicate; this is it.</p>

<p>Q. Take the duplicate into your hand produced by Gillmore - A. These are the two shirts that were pledged at my house; my daughter took them in. She dropped down dead suddenly. I don't know who she took them of. They were in our house pledged for four shillings, one on the 14th of July, and the other on the 13th of October.</p>
<p>Prosecutrix. They are my property; they were my husband's shirts; his name is marked on them. This petticoat Mr. Gillmore found in the prisoner's room; it is mine.</p>
<p>Q. Did you give Gillmore your padlock and lock off your room door - A. I did, and I am sure I locked it when I went out at past nine at night. I left a light in my room when I went out.</p>
<p>The prisoner said nothing in her defence; called four witnesses, who gave her a good character.</p>

<p>Q. Look at him; are you certain he is the man - A. I am certain. He asked to look at a watch which was suspended in the window. I took it down; he examined it; I gave it into his hand. He then requested to look at some others, which I accordingly took down. He then desired me to recommend him one which I thought was a good one, that would do him service. I did; I recommended him the best watch in the shop. He asked me whether I could warrant it to perform well. I told him I would warrant it to perform remarkably well. After a little conversation he desired me to reach him one suspended at the left of the window. While I was turning myself to reach that watch, the prisoner ran out of the shop. I saw him have the watch in his hand, and when I turned round again he and the watch was gone. I could not pursue him; I was alone.</p>

Gentlemen, the man who knows his innocence can put his hand to his heart, and has nothing to fear. I declare, most solemnly, gentlemen, that I am as innocent as any of you. I am situated without a counsel, having been committed on Saturday. Gentlemen, I have been at large after having undergone three examinations. I was acquitted of the whole charge, but I fell within the domain of Bow-street. I now appear before you. Gentlemen, now the prevarication of the witness I will ask you. The witness now swears positively to me. It is now three months ago; whether from that period to four months, which positively did not exceed a minute and a half, how he can prevaricate before a jury. I should be sorry to say that he is the individual that did the act himself. I can thus much declare, no property has been found. It is something extremely singular, at the office he felt a degree of agitation in swearing to me, now he can swear to me. If I had shrunk from the court I must have been a guilty man, though conscious I am that whatever your verdict may be I shall be satisfied. To my God and my country I leave it. I have not been allowed time to call my friends, or else I could have confirmed my innocence.</p>

<p>Q. Do you recollect in January last, any watch being missed from his shop - A. I do; to the best of my recollection, it was on Monday, the 17th of January, about a quarter past seven in the evening, I was alone in the shop; the prisoner came into the shop; I am certain it was the prisoner. He came into the shop, and asked me if we had a silver chronometer; I told him we had, and handed him one from the drawer of the iron chest, under the counter. He looked at the silver chronometer, and asked my opinion of it. He wished to know the difference between a gold and silver chronometer; I asked him if he wanted a watch for nautical purposes. I then showed him a gold watch. A second person came into the shop, and asked me if I had a silver watch at two pound five shillings, or two two pound ten shillings; I told him I had. He said he was in an hurry. I went to reach a silver watch, and the prisoner darted out of the shop, with the gold watch in his hand. I rushed from behind the counter, but was somewhat impeded by the second man; that man hindered me. I run on the pavement; I was not able to pursue the prisoner, on account of leaving a stranger in the shop. I might have overtaken him, but I must have left the shop to the stranger. The prisoner was in the shop six or seven minutes; we had two lamps and two candles. I had a very good light. I have no doubt of his person. It is now some time ago, since the 17th of January. The moment I saw him again, I had no doubt of his person.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My lord and gentlemen of the jury, it is an extreme hard case having no solicitor to defend me in this awful predicament; I shall regret it as long as I live. To be tried by a jury of my own country is a gratifying thing. Now, gentlemen, an individual has sworn to me, and another persists in swearing to me on former occasions; they said, they did think it was me. The worthy alderman told them they must not give belief, it was a cruel thing to deprive an individual of a character. Now, gentlemen of the jury; standing as I do, it may be construed that I feel hardened; believe me, I have no such a disposition. I am innocent. I am compelled by my God and my country to say, that the stranger who came into the shop might have done the act, and I myself, am to be made the sacrifice. I shall depend upon whatever your verdict may be; I shall never complain. I have myself, sat in your capacity. But whenever a doubt arose, I always leaned to the side of mercy.</p>

On Saturday, the 9th of April, I went to bed about twelve o'clock; I examined the fastenings before I went to bed; they were all secure. I was particularly attentive to the fastenings. The house had been attempted two or three nights before. I gave particular charge to all the watchmen in the neighbourhood. The cellar door was fastened. That cellar leads to the warehouse. There is a stair case from there to the warehouse; the dwelling-house is above the warehouse; it is all under one roof. I went to bed about twelve o'clock; the nursery-maid and Mrs. Phillips were up last. On the next morning, I was awoke by the nursery-maid; she told me there was a number of things laying about the warehouse in confusion. I got up. I went into the drawing-room; I found the glass buffet broken open; the lock had been forced, and all the articles of plate, with the exception of a wine-strainer, had been taken out. I had seen the buffet the night before, all was safe. Some of the articles that I missed, I saw afterwards. I missed a large silver waiter, a smaller ditto, a silver tankard and cover, four silver candlesticks, a silver soup-ladle, a gravy-ladle, a sauce-ladle, a cheese-scoop, and a silver table-bell with ivory handle; that was taken out of one of the cupboards.</p>
<p>Q. Did you look at the table-drawer in that room - A. I did. I have a secretary and a book-case also in that room. The drawer was nearly emptied, and open. I went into the kitchen; I missed six silver table-spoons from the kitchen; I had seen them there the evening before. I then went to the warehouse; there is a glass case door; that was broken open; the glass broken and the lock broken. I missed a great number of articles from there; I missed an hair trunk, and the whole of the articles in that trunk.</p>
<p>Q. Among the rest of the articles, was there any
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250009"/>scouring paper - A. There was a great deal of scouring-paper in some part of the warehouse, several reams; some of that was taken. There is a desk in that warehouse; I saw it closed on the over night. In the morning, the flaps were up, all the drawers were out, and laying on the floor. I did not then go to the cellar. After I returned from Hatton Garden office, I went to the cellar.</p>
<p>Q. Had you some time before, some steel purses - A. I had; I lost some that night. I have seen one of them since, that I lost that night. When I returned, we entered into the cellar; we found where the entry had been made. The entry into the coal-cellar was very narrow; we found the walls were wiped clean, and the coals had been disturbed. We then found the entry had been made in the cellar; the officers were of the same opinion.</p>
<p>Q. Did you know either of the prisoners at the bar - A. I know Field; he was my servant. That is the name he used to go by; he lived in my service near three years; he had left me about two months I think; he had been my porter. On the Sunday night, I saw some part of the cutlery and combs, and the next morning I saw part of a silver candlestick. The first thing that I saw was in Checquer-place, Checquer-alley. The other things were brought to me by the officers.</p>

On Sunday, the 10th of April, I went with the prosecutor to No. 2. Checquer-place, Checquer-alley, Whitecross-street; I went to look after Field; I could not find him in the morning. In the evening I went in company with Cook and two City officers to the same place; I found Field and Berry in the custody of Cook and the other officers. I handcuffed them, and took them to the watchhouse, and from there to the office. On the next morning we agreed we would take Collard: she lived in the same house where we took Field and Berry from; we took her in custody. I searched her at the office. I found in her pocket these three knives and two thimbles; they were afterwards identified by the prosecutor as his property. Mrs. Collard said the knives were given to her by Field, to keep for him.</p>

I knew Berry before. He was sitting by the fire; he appeared to be in liquor. I endeavoured to awake him. I searched him. I found four combs, and three knives upon him. I produce them. I shewed them to the prosecutor afterwards. According to the description of the things, I was satisfied this was part of the prosecutor's property. I handcuffed them, and told Berry he should go with me. I searched a closet close to where Berry was sitting; I found a dark-lanthorn, a phosphorus bottle, with matches, complete, and this hat; on the side of that, this small chisel.</p>
<p>Q. Did you afterwards go to Phillip's house - A. I did, and saw the buffet; there were marks of violence upon it, exactly corresponding with this screw-driver.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see any thing of Mrs. Collard - A. I did. I asked her who that hat belonged to; she said, she did not know; she believed it belonged to her son. I asked her who she had got up stairs; she said, no one. I went up stairs, and in the garret I found Field in bed; he had part of his clothes off, and part on. I endeavoured to awake him; he seemed very much stupified. His face being black with coals; and by the description I had in the morning, I was almost certain he was the person that was seen. I had great trouble to awake him; he was very much in liquor. Before I brought him down stairs, Moore searched him; in his waistcoat pocket he found a pair of scissars; he gave them to me. I then brought him down stairs; Mr. Phillips identified him as the person he was in search of.</p>
<p>Q. Did you take any notice of his coat - A. There is another person that can speak to that. I went to the premises of Mr. Phillips; I examined them. In my judgment, the persons got into the house at the flap of the coal-cellar, and by the appearance of the place, they did get in that way. On Monday, I was present at the taking of Mrs. Collard, and on the 15th, I went to the house of the prisoner Robinson, in Henley-place, Checquer-alley; there I found in a box, a steel purse. I found the prisoner in bed. I had received information that part of the property laid there. I took Robinson to the office. The prosecutor saw this purse; and said, he had every reason to believe it was his property. At the office, Robinson was admitted to bail, and to day he surrendered. The box in his room was not locked. I never heard any thing against his character.</p>

<p>Q. to Prosecutor. Look at the top of the candlestick - A. It is part of my silver candlestick.</p>

I went to bed about eleven o'clock in company with an acquaintance that came up from Dover. He had been a prisoner ten years in France. Before I went to bed I put my watch on the frame of the window. About one o'clock I was awoke by my partner, who said there was a man in the room who had awoke him by clapping his hand on his face in the dark. We both of us got out of bed immediately, and asked the prisoner what he was doing in our room.</p>
<p>Q. You found the prisoner in your room, did you - A. Yes; he made some kind of excuse, as if he had mistaken the room, and by the noise that we made the watchman was alarmed; he came to the room door, and met the prisoner going out. The watchman followed him into his own room, and came back with his lanthorn to light our candle, and desired us to see that we had not been robbed. I immediately went to the window, and found my watch missing. I followed the watchman into the prisoner's room; he was searched; no watch was found upon him. I then uncovered the bed clothes, and in so doing I heard the ticking of a watch. I listened, and found the noise proceeded from the tester of the bed. I climbed up the bed post, and found my watch in two parts; the case of the watch in one part, and the body of the watch in another part. I got it down, and gave it the watchman, who asked me if it was my property; I said it was.</p>
<p>Q. When you went to bed did you shut the door - A. I think I did; I would not wish to swear I did; I have every reason to suppose I did. I did not lock the door; I rather think I shut it with the latch.</p>
<p>WILLIAM SENIOR. I am a servant with

<p>Q. Do you know this room that Judge was in - A. Yes; it is No. 10. The prisoner's bed room was No. 12, in the gallery. I went round the gallery, as I do generally about one, to see that the doors were shut, and the candles all out, the prisoner rung the bell; I came down to the gate; I had been round to see all was safe. I put my hand against every door when I went round; I can say the door of No. 10 was shut.</p>
<p>Q. You are sure Mr. Judge's door was shut, are you - A. It was shut. I do not come till ten o'clock on my duty. I went to the ring of the bell; the prisoner asked me if he could have a bed; I told him he must go up to the chambermaid, if there was one he might have one. She shewed him a bed at No. 12; that was the only bed that was left. He paid for the bed, and the chambermaid told me to see to the light. I watched while his light was burning, a quarter of an hour. I was up stairs. I heard the prosecutor say to the prisoner, what are you about here? and just as I came up to No. 10 the prisoner came out. I asked him what business he had in that gentleman's room. I went into the room, and asked them to look if they had lost anything. A gentleman came out of No. 11. We could not find the watch about the prisoner. I took the prisoner down to the watchman in the street, and just as I came back the prosecutor said he heard the watch upon the tester of the bed, and there it was found. I took the watch, and gave charge of the watch and the prisoner to the constable.</p>

<p>Prosecutor. That is my watch.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. On the night stated by the prosecutor, I went to the Spread Eagle to sleep; I asked for a bed to sleep. I went up one pair of stairs for the purpose of going to bed; a short time after, I felt myself unwell; and although I urge that I was intoxicated, I know that will not be taken in my favour. I went out for the purpose of going to a water-closet; on my return I missed my own room, and put my hand against this door, which certainly was open, and not shut. I went into the room most certainly; one of the gentlemen asked me what I wanted.
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250012"/>I declared I had mistaken the room, and I believe I stated the reason I had so done. I went to my room, and was not met coming out of Mr. Judge's room. From that I went into my own room, when the last witness insisted I should put on my clothes, and go out of the house; some time afterwards, he said I should not go out of the house until he had enquired whether any gentleman had lost his property. Then I was taken to the Compter. While I was down stairs in the chambermaid's room, below, there was a cry in the gallery that a watch was found. I declare that I did not move any watch out of that room. As Mr. Judge had been in bed two hours before I went to bed, it is probable that some other person opened that gentleman's room, and not me. It is possible, and probable. At the same time, I hope the jury will take it into consideration that some other person had opened the room door. and had removed the watch. After I was out, they found it.</p>

About five minutes before nine, the prisoner opened my door; she desired me to let her leave a blanket and a bolster there. I refused her. She took them down into the cellar of my house. The cellar belongs to the landlord of the house. The cellar door was open. I have nothing to do with the cellar. The prisoner told me she took the things to the cellar. I told her I would have nothing left in my place. My bed is right before the cellar door. I saw her take the things into the cellar, and the next morning I saw the things in the cellar. The next morning the prisoner came to my room at seven o'clock; she said she had a sheet, a blanket, and a counterpane at the pawnbrokers, which cost her thirty shillings before she was married, and that she had pawned them at Mr. Ellis's for seven shillings, and he had always lent her a guinea upon them. She asked me if I would take the ticket to Mr. Ellis, the pawnbroker; I denied it. She wanted Mr. Ellis to make it two shillings more than what she had on it. She said if her husband met her with it he would use her ill. I took the ticket to Mr. Ellis's shop; the man would not lend any more on it. I brought her back the ticket; she went away, and left the ticket on the table. I did not see her any more until she was taken. About eleven o'clock, the constable came to my room, and asked if any thing had been left in my house. I went in the cellar, and fetched up a blanket, a bolster, and a bed gown. I delivered them to him.</p>

<p>JOHN SHIRLEY. The prisoner came to my brother's warehouse on the 3 d of May, between seven and eight in the morning. In consequence of former suspicion, I strictly looked at him; I was convinced he had nothing in his pockets at that time. When he was ready to leave the warehouse, I stopped him on the premises, and told him I had suspected him of stealing some time, and told him I should search him. He, in the first instance, refused me doing so; he afterwards said, I will be searched by you. He had got a dozen of them. I then sent for an officer, and before the officer came I took out of his pockets this dozen of glasses. He said it was the first time he had ever done any thing of the sort, and hoped we should forgive him. The officer came in, and took him to the public-house adjoining the office in Worship-street. The officer took his hat off; out of his hat he took these two glasses, in addition to the twelve I took from him. These are the glasses; they are the property of Cephus and

<p>Q. What became of the women after the hand was taken out of your pocket - A. They stopped, and Kerrick stopped. The bar-maid told her brother; he came, and bolted the doors. The man at the bar stopped, and the women too.</p>
<p>Q. At the time that you asked for the ale, were there any other person at the bar than the bar-maid - A. There was another woman. The landlord was not in the bar then; the landlord was called in when I missed my property.</p>
<p>Q. Where were you going to or coming from at that time of the night, when you called in this wine-vaults - A. I came from Paddington; I was going home to my lodging, No. 19, Whitcomb-street. I was not sober; I was sensible of losing my property.</p>

I could see every thing that passed in the shop, when I was in the loft, by means of holes, which I had. I saw the prisoner come in, in the morning. I was put in the loft before seven in the morning. The prisoner came to work between eight and nine in the morning. About one o'clock, there was no one in the shop but him, (that was before he went to dinner, ) I saw him take a bit of brass wire from a drawer under his work-board; with that, he forced out a piece of gold wire from a hiding place, placed under this board.</p>
<p>Q. Where did the hiding place appear to you to be - A. It appeared to be in the skirting boards.</p>
<p>Q. How long was the piece of gold wire - A. About five inches. He cut it in several pieces, and put it into the fire loose, blowed with a pair of hand bellows; then he took it out of the fire; he wrapped it in a piece of paper, and tied it round with a piece of iron wire. He went to the forge, and drove a nail about a yard up the forge chimney, and hung it upon the nail, which he had put in the forge chimney.</p>
<p>Q. You could not see up the chimney of course - A. No. I saw the parcel go up in his hand, and his hand came down without it. Having done that, he went away to dinner, and while he was at dinner, I communicated to my master what I had seen; my
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250016"/>master went into the shop. I remained in the loft all the time; I never left it. I continued there by my master's direction. The prisoner came into the shop in about an hour after he had gone to dinner; when he came into the shop one man was there then; the man remained in the shop about five minutes, and went away. The prisoner then was alone. Then the prisoner went to several of the men's drawers, and came back with several pieces of gold wire in his hand to the forge.</p>
<p>Q. Are you able to say you saw him take it from the men's drawers - A. No. I saw him go the men's drawers in the shop, but I cannot say that he took wire from them; but he returned with several pieces of wire in his hand to his own boards.</p>
<p>COURT. Did you see what he had in his hand - A. I did; they were pieces of gold wire.</p>
<p>Mr. Arabin. Is the ceiling of the shop a high one or a low one - A. A high one. Having weighed them; he took them to the fire, and did the same as before. He raked it out of fire; one of his shop-mates came up at the time. He took it from the forge, and put under a flat iron without a handle, he put a lump of lead on this flat iron; he put his elbow on the lead, and turned round in conversation with his shopmate; the shopmate talked with him a few minutes, and afterwards went to his own board, and they both continued at work. While the shopmate was at work, the prisoner wrapped it up in a piece of paper, and put it into his own drawer.</p>
<p>Q. These boards that the men work at have very high backs - A. Yes. Marsh, the shopmate, could not see what the prisoner was about, by any manner of means. When the other workman went away, the prisoner was then alone in the shop. He took the gold out of his drawer, tied the gold round with a piece of iron wire, and went to the forge chimney again; he appeared to hang it in the chimney, the same as he did the last. After that, he went to his work; another man came up. He was left alone again about seven o'clock; the other man was gone. He got upon the forge; he was partly up the chimney; he took these two parcels of gold down; he stood a long time in great agitation with them in his hand. I saw them in his hand. He took a chisel of one of his shopmates, and forced up a brick from under the forge in the chaircoal-hole, he tried to dig a hole; he found it too hard; he put the brick in the same place, and covered it over with charcoal dust, as before. He stood upon a stool, and tried to force the ceiling with the chisel; finding he could not do that, he got down, and stood several minutes with it in his hand; he then went down stairs with it; he was in his working dress then. I saw him come up stairs without any thing in his hand; he had been washing himself in the yard in his working dress, a waistcoat with sleeves.</p>
<p>Q. Does the way down to wash lead to the charcoal cellar - A. It does. After he went into the yard, he put on his coat, handkerchief, and hat, and then he looked over the bannister of the stairs several times to see if his master was in the way, then he went away. I saw him do no more. Then I gave the signal to my master.</p>
<p>Q. You say these parcels were put up the chimney; did you see him do any thing to them - A. I saw him go up the chimney with a hare's foot in his hand to black the parcels.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. How long have you lived with your master - A. Four months.</p>
<p>Q. There was one man in the shop when Pritchard was in the shop, his name is Marsh, was not there a man of the name of Gosling too - A. Yes; he was there about five minutes after Pritchard came from dinner.</p>
<p>Q. Were you to be paid for your trouble in watching - A. Master said, I should not lose any thing. I lost by being up there.</p>
<p>Q. Was there no sum promised you - A. Master promised me a guinea if the property was found on the prisoner.</p>

<p>Q. Does the shop adjoin the dwelling-house - A. It is just at the gable end of it; there is no communication between the dwelling-house and the shop. It is the dwelling-house of me and my brother. There is iron railing in the front of the house.</p>
<p>Q. How is the roof of the house - A. The roof of the house is considerably above the shop; it is only one story high.</p>
<p>Q. You and your brother placed the boy in the loft - A. Yes. In the loft you can see every thing that passes in the shop. I placed him there at seven o'clock in the morning; I removed the ladder, so that it was impossible the boy could get down. About two o'clock, I and my brother went into the shop, when no one was in the shop; I saw a piece of gold on the forge, by the fire; it appeared to have been raked out of the fire. That is all I saw at that time. I gave the boy directions to give me a signal when the gold was taken away.</p>
<p>Q. At any time in the evening, did you lock yourself in the accompting-house - A. I did, about seven o'clock, near dark, I heard a person come down stairs. and go out of the shop door.</p>
<p>Q. If a man wanted to wash himself, he could wash himself in the washhouse without going out of the door - A. Yes; the washhouse is direct opposite the accompting-house door.</p>
<p>Q. Did that man go into the washhouse door, whoever he was - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. In going out of the shop door does it lead to the charcoal-cellar - A. It does.</p>
<p>COURT. That is the charcoal-cellar - A. It is out at the door, level with the washhouse.</p>
<p>Mr. Arabin. What time elapsed before any man returned - A. A minute, or a minute and a half.</p>
<p>Q. Could he in a minute and a half have gone to the charcoal-cellar - A. Yes; it is not more than four or five steps. Upon my hearing a person return, I looked through the key hole; I saw it was the prisoner, and saw him go into the washhouse passage; he was in his work dress. After that, I heard him go up, as I supposed; I did not look then; I was fearful he should see me. I soon afterwards heard him come down; I saw him pass
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181405250017"/>the accompting-house window. The signal was given; nothing was found upon him.</p>
<p>COURT. What day was this - A.Wednesday, the 11th of May. On Sunday, the maid and I was upon searching; she was moving a German stove in the charcoal-cellar, that we put by for the summer season. She said, there it is; I took it in my hand; I said this is it by the weight of it. These are the two parcels.</p>
<p>Q. Let the boy look at them -</p>
<p>Willis. I believe them to be the parcels; I saw the manner he packed them up.</p>

<p>Mr. Arabin. Is it gold - A. It is gold wire, melted in the fire would it look like that; the value of the gold in both the parcels is about eleven pounds. I cannot answer for the quantity there is in each, one perhaps, as much again as the other.</p>
<p>Mr. Knapp. The gold by melting has quite a different appearance to what it had before - A. Yes, in point of form.</p>
<p>Q. When the person came down stairs, be he who would, you did not see him - A. No, I did not.</p>
<p>Q. Be that person, whoever it was, whether he went to the charcoal-place or washhouse, you do not know; you did not see them - A. As far as I can guess, he did not go into the washhouse.</p>
<p>Q. That person had the opportunity of going to the charcoal-place or any where else, just as he pleased - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. And when you did see him, you looked through the key-hole - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. You saw it was the prisoner that was coming in again - A. Yes; that person went up stairs.</p>
<p>Q. Whether that person went up stairs, you do not know, you did not see him - A. I heard him go up; it must be him; there was no other person came in during the time.</p>
<p>Q. Now, attend to me. You said the maid pointed out to you the parcels you now produce - A. Yes; she saw them first.</p>
<p>Q. Was this the Sunday after the Wednesday - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Is the charcoal-cellar, a place to which each of your men might go to between the Wednesday and the Sunday - A. Certainly.</p>
<p>Q. Had you gone to the charcoal-place - A. I had searched; I did not think of looking there.</p>

<p>Q. Tell us who this Mr. Gibbons is - A. Mr. Gibbons, myself, and Mr. Simpson, were partners; last August we dissolved partnership. When we had dissolved partnership. Mr. Gibbons continued to occupy the same part of the house that he had before. No rent has been paid but for the shops since. One hundred and five pounds a year is the rent of the house and shops; that includes Mr. Gibbon's shop and mine; there is a distinct rent upon the shops; the rent. I pay for my shop is thirty-four pounds three shillings and fourpence a year.</p>
<p>Q. Is there a distinct rent for the shops, and a distinct rent for the house to be paid by Mr. Simpson - A. There is, by agreement. The rent of my shop is thirty-four pounds three shillings and fourpence.</p>
<p>Q. How much for your part of the house - A. Twenty-six pounds, as long; as we continue, and Mr. Gibbons has his part of the house the same.</p>
<p>Q. Does that include his shop - A. No; there is a distinct rent for the shop. Mr. Gibbons's rent of the shop is seventeen pounds six shillings and eight-pence; When we separated partnership, the rent of the shops was to be paid by three persons. The whole of the premises belongs to Mr. Simpson.</p>
<p>Q. Did you place this boy in the loft with your brother - A. I did.</p>
<p>Q. What is the length of the shop - A. About twenty-one feet in length, about nineteen or twenty in width, and the height of the ceiling is between seven and eight; The holes were sufficiently larger enough for any one to see the whole that was done in the shop. One night I watched myself and on. Tuesday my brother; we were tired of the job. We placed this young man there for the purpose of detecting whoever might roll us. Between two or three o'clock, I left him in the loft; he could have no communication with any body else; it was impossible. About two o'clock, I went into the shop with my brother; I saw a piece of gold lay on the forge, close by the fire. I looked up the chimney, and saw a parcel tied round with a piece of binding-wire, hung upon a nail; I distinctly saw it fastened to the nail by a wire; I saw the parcel now produced; I have not the least doubt it is the same parcel; it was blacked in the same way; the paper was discoloured black. I saw the impression of a hand in the chimney, as if a person had got up. Then I went away. The lad said, he could not see a part of the shop so clearly; we made him a fresh hole at the time we went up. When the boy told me what had passed; my brother said, he would give him a guinea. I said, he had done wrong; however I said he should have it if it was found upon him. After the prisoner was taken, I went up again; we looked up the chimney to see whether the parcel was there; it was gone. I have weighed the parcels to together; the weight is two ounces ten pennyweights; the value is upwards of eleven pounds.</p>
<p>Q. Have you missed any gold wire - A. Yes; we have missed wire repeatedly. Gold wire is an article we use in the watch-case making; we never melt gold wire in large pieces; we never melt gold wire except small ends.</p>

I run up St. Mary Axe, and took the prisoner into custody, and asked him where he got the lead; he said, he knew nothing about any lead. I asked him if he knew Mr. Watts, where he had left it; he said, no. I then took him back to the shop, and asked Mr. Watts if he was the man that left it; he said he was.

I immediately felt about my pockets, and missed a silk handkerchief. Williams, the prisoner, was close to me at the time. I immediately charged him with having picked my pocket; he asked me what I meaned, and said, he had not. I then said, your accomplice has; meaning the prisoner Wells. I had seen them together before, when they passed and repassed me. I searched Williams first. While I was searching Williams, the patrol came up. When I said to Williams, if it is not you it is your accomplice; the patrol laid hold of Wells. As Wells turned, I observed a handkerchief hanging out of his pocket; I could not observe whether it was mine or not; it was a silk pocket handkerchief. At that time three or four persons came up, and somebody picked up a handkerchief, and said, is this your handkerchief; I took it in my hand, and said, it is.</p>

About six or eight yards of me, I saw the prisoner coming towards Islington, as we were on the road; he was not coming very quick. Just as we got to the corner, he stepped quicker: he was walking in the middle of the pavement; he came in that way, that I was not able to make way for him; with his left hand, he threw the little one down on the inside. He pushed me violently on the stomach with his left hand; he then threw his shoulder on to mine, and turned himself round, and with his right hand he drew out my son's watch; I saw that. Knowing of the man before, and the character of him, I kept my eye on him, and saw the method he took it; he bent his finger as a hook; he caught the watch in the hollow of his hand, and kept it so. I am sure the prisoner is the person; I knew him before. He ran some distance before he was stopped; we called stop thief. Prior to that, I saw him throw his arm out, and then he cried stop thief louder than we did; he was stopped. I did not lose sight of him. I am sure of his person.

I ran after him, and catched at him; he held his hand up, as if to knock me down, and then he said what do you stop me for, and then I ran away. A gentleman that was with me walked by the side of him, and kept the prisoner in conversation until the mob came up, and then they said the prisoner is the man that ran away, and he is the man that went to strike me. I went into the public-house with the people, and then I returned to look for the watch. I tumbled on the watch in Rawsterne-street, in an open place. I found the watch in about ten minutes after he was taken, not more. I found the watch in that part of Rawsterne-street where the prisoner had been running. I saw him coming out of Rawsterne-street, and it was in that street where I saw the prisoner coming out, that I found the watch. I found the watch without the case; the case has been found; I did not find the case. I delivered the watch to Edwards, the officer, at Bow-street.</p>
<p>- EDWARDS. I am an officer. On account of illness, I gave my place up. I live in St. John-street. There was no officer to be found, and knowing me in the neighbourhood, I was sent for. The prisoner was taken in St. John-street-road. I searched him in the public-house; I found nothing on him but a box. The mother and the lad were in the public-house with me. I proceeded to Bow-street with the prisoner. When I came there no magistrate was sitting. I took him to the watchhouse. The watch was delivered into my hands by Mr. Cowland. It had no case. I never had the case. The man that found the case, left it with the lad's mother. He did not give any address. This is the watch.</p>
