I went on as far as Old street, then crossing the road, this gentleman tapped me on the shoulder.</p>
<p>Q. Somebody tapped you on the shoulder - A. Yes. He said, my man, you must go along with me to your master, for he had got something to tell me; my master is going out, and he wants the things directly; I said, very well, sir. He said, you may as well give me the bundle to carry, we shall then go on the quicker; I said, no, sir. I am much obliged to you; I can carry it very well myself. He said, you must give it me, I want to go directly back to my master, for he wants to go out of town; you can deliver the message. He then put his legs between mine, knocked me down, and forced the bundle out of my hand; there was a gentleman, officer, near, that saw the transaction. The prisoner ran away with the bundle. A gentleman that saw the transaction, came over, and picked me up; I did not see which way the man that knocked me down went.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who that gentleman is - A. I have seen him since at Hatton Garden.</p>

<p>Q. You went home afterwards to your master's house - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. How soon afterwards did you go to the Justice - A. Mr. Lamprell sent his man, Nash, to the officer Hancock, and when I saw Hancock, I told him what had happened; Hancock took me the same night to a place, where I saw some men, it was at a public-house up a court in Whitecross-street; the first time I pointed out no person; I went several times afterwards to other houses.</p>
<p>Q. Where was it you first saw the man that you thought robbed you - A. At a public-house by Hatton Garden; this was about a fortnight ago; Hancock, the officer, went with me.</p>
<p>Q. Were there many persons in the room - A. Yes, about eight or nine; among these I saw the prisoner at the bar was one; I knew him as soon as I saw him; I singled the prisoner out from among the rest. He said, mind what you say, you are certain that I am the man; I said, I am certain. He put his hand to his head, and appeared agitated. I am sure the prisoner at the bar is the person that robbed me.</p>

<p>Q. How soon after you had any information was it that you apprehended the prisoner - A. On the 9th of April, I apprehended him in Great Shire-lane; a man of the name of Day gave me an information; I went into a shop in Great Shire-lane and went up stairs; as soon as the prisoner saw me, he asked me what I wanted with him; he asked me if I wanted him about a snow; I said, no; I wanted him about something else. Whilst going along with him to the office, I told him I wanted him for a highway robbery; he said, he did not care about that, or words to that effect. I put him into a room by the office with several others; Barnes came; I cautioned Barnes to be correct. He pointed him out directly; he made no hesitation at all. The prisoner then said, look at me again, be sure that I am the man; he said, I am sure you are the man that tripped me down; the prisoner was then take before the magistrate.</p>

On the 1st of April last, between four and five in the afternoon, I met him by accident, in Lincoln's-inn-fields, I had known him four or five years before. We talked about respectable trades; and his conversation led me to believe he got his living by thieving. He informed me that he was in danger of being apprehended every minute, and that he apprehended that Garnan, the Westminster police officer, had two warrants against him; I asked him what they were for; he said, one or two pieces of Irish linen, out of Barbican. I asked him how he got it, and whether by a croke! croke is a slang word for house-breaking; he said no; from a boy. I asked him what the other was for; he said; from Peter-street, Westminster. I asked him how he got that; he gave an account how he got it; this conversation was on the 1st of April. I afterwards saw Hancock, and gave him some information; in consequence of which, the prisoner was apprehended; I saw Roberts again on the Saturday following; on the Sunday following the Saturday he was apprehended; he was not apprehended until the 9th of April.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Q. Were you ever in custody - A. I am not come here to convict myself.</p>
<p>COURT. Q. To Nash. Are the things here - A. We never found the things; they were never traced afterwards.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I met Day about the 1st of April, he asked me what I had been about, and what I was doing now; I said, I am looking out for bread in Shire-lane. He said he had been taken up on suspicion of stealing a watch, in Pickett-street. I asked him if he had a lodging to go home to; he said, no; so I gave him a shilling to got one. I wished to put off my trial until Monday, when I hoped to have this butcher here. I therefore throw myself entirely on the mercy of the court.</p>

When I went into the parlour, I saw the lock of the parlour door had been forced off; that was the noise I heard the time before; the door had been forced open by two crows, two crows and part of the lock were produced before the magistrate.</p>
<p>Q. Had you ever seen the prisoner before, was he a lodger in the house - A. No, he was not.</p>
<p>Prisoner. Q. In the first place, when I was taken to the office, the prosecutrix swore it was between seven and eight o'clock; now she says it was between six and seven - A. I saw the place secure at seven o'clock, as I had left it.</p>

On the 23rd of April, as near as I can guess, about twenty minutes after eight o'clock, I was going up Tower-street; I met a man running with a bed and bedding on his back; I pursued him; I saw the last witness with a candle, hallooing out stop thief; she went a very little way from the door, and again she hallooed out stop thief. I turned about, and went after the man; there was nobody in the street besides me. I overtook the prisoner, he had the bed on his back, it was tied up in a blanket. I sprang on the bed, and pulled it off his back; the man ran off; I jumped over the bed, and went after him, and catched him in Little St. Martin's-lane, I took him after a deal of difficulty, he struck at me, and said the bed did not belong to me; he got from me again; I went after him a second time, I followed him up some considerable way; he said, I had no business with him, and I took him again, and I took him up to the house where he had taken the bed from: we got him into the passage; then I saw two women, and there was a mob about the door in the street; and I gave him up to the women; the women took the bed and bedding into the house.

On the 23rd of April last, I was in the Strand, I met the prisoner Smith, I came up to him; it was about a quarter before ten o'clock; at that time, I was at the end of Holywell-street; I never saw him before to my knowledge; he endeavoured to get into some kind of conversation with me; I took no heed of him; I kept on, and he kept on walking with me until we nearly reached Temple Bar; when we came to Star-court, (which is by the side of Temple Bar,) he spoke about turning up Star-court; I did not know for what purpose we were to turn into the court. We walked together within a few yards of Temple Bar; the prisoner, Simons, joined us about four or five yards from Temple Bar, he came as if from the road side; he came close to my right hand. All three of us passed through the Bar together; nothing occurred until we came close to Bell-yard; I turned up Bell-yard; they walked on with me, one on my right hand, and the other on my left, until we came to

The prisoner, Simons was on my right hand, close to me, and at the instant the blow was struck, I felt my watch go from me in an instant; it was in my breeches fob, on the right side; there was a ribbon, and a gilt key, to it, and a valuable seal. The prisoners ran away, immediately I heard them running. I never saw them before to my knowledge.</p>
<p>Q. Did they say any thing one to the other - A. They did not say any thing together that I heard, to my knowledge not a word passed from Simons to the other; if they did say any thing after it was done, I did not hear it. I never saw my watch again; the value of the watch is two pounds ten shillings, it cost me five pounds ten shillings. I am perfectly sure I had the watch at the time I was struck, I had felt it a few minutes before, and I likewise felt it drawn out of my pocket as I fell down; I was perfectly sober, I had not been in any public-house. Somebody picked me up. I was going to my own lodgings; this was the nearest way to my lodgings. I called out stop thief as I was laying on the stones; two watchmen came up, and said, had I called out stop thief, they could have secured them; they were not stopped at that time. I went home to my lodgings; and I had a thought that they were then lurking about Temple Bar, and it struck me that I would go out, and see if I could see any thing of them; I then went from my lodgings back again to Temple Bar, with intention to go into Pickett-street, to see if I could see any thing of them lurking about; I had a friend with me at the same time; we passed through the bar, I had scarcely got though it, before the alarm was given of stop thief, by a gentleman of the name of Jones. The prisoner, Simons, had been picking his pocket; the rattles were sprung upon the alarm of stop thief being given and several people were in pursuit; I, and my friend, went among the number, with the watchman, and in turning about from St. Clements, the prisoner, Simons, fell, he was running as if he was making for Essex-street, and in turning down he fell; Simons was then secured, and taken to the watch-house; I knew his person immediately, I was positive to his person, having joined me at Temple Bar, he looks very much like a Jew, that is the one that joined Smith at Temple Bar; he took my watch. The other was not taken then, he was Tuesday evening following; I was Smith was taken, two officers took him Bow-street, the other belonging to when he was at Bow-street, I at to his person; it was on the Monday taken, at his second examination sure of both the prisoners.</p>

He was walking by the side of Mr. Jones when he gave him in charge, just by St. Clements pillars.</p>
<p>Q. Then Mr. Jones had laid hold of him before you - A. Yes; when I laid hold of the prisoner, he ran; I called stop thief, I sprang my rattle, and with the assistance of other watchman, and the prosecutor, we took Simons; Eglinton was with me at the time I took the prisoner; the prosecutor, Eglinton, said, he would swear to Simons, was one of the two that knocked him down, and stole his watch. The prisoner said, he was innocent. I asked him what made him run away; he said, what should he stand to be taken for.</p>

<p>Q. Did you hear him - A. I did not.</p>
<p>COURT. Then you should not say that.</p>
<p>Bean. Afterwards I turned back, and went into a public house, the public-house is at the end of Wych street the sign of the King's Head the prisoner Smith came into the public-house; he called for a pint of half and half, he gave a three shilling piece to change while he was looking at his change, in come Simons; they drank their liquor and went out, and I saw no more of them, I did not see any thing more of them till I saw Simons at the watch-house. The next morning the prisoner Simmons was taken to Bow-street, I went with Simons on Monday morning to the magistrate. I asked Eglinton if he could swear to the man. On Monday morning at Bow-street he said positively he could; which he did swear to him; I then gave him a description of the other man who was with Simons, and asked if he should know him again, he said he positively should, and that the man I had discribed, was the man. On the Tuesday following, I informed a Bow street officer, Archibald Ruthwin, and on Tuesday evening, Ruthwin and I went in search of Smith, we found him at the Dover Castle Dover street, St. George's Fields. We apprehended him, we began by informing him that he must go with us, he said, he wanted to see one man a bit by himself; and that he was taken on Simons's business. We told him that we took him for felony.</p>

<p>Simon's Defence. I went into a house in Holywell-street; my prosecutor and that watchman came in together, I saw my prosecutor, and asked him to have a glass; I see them drink liquor, they both went out together; I drank my porter as to any thing further I do not know, except that I was taken to the watch-house by them.</p>

On Saturday evening between nine and ten o'clock on the 16th of April, I and a young women had been in the Borough, at Shoreditch church, I thought I would treat myself with a coach, I asked a coachman what he would take me to Cambridge Heath for, he asked me three shillings and six-pence, I told him I would not give three shillings and six-pence, he said are you going through a turnpike, I said no; he said what will you give, I said a shilling, he said, will not you give two, I said no, I would not; he said well then get in; the coachman came and put me into the coach, and this young woman was with me. The coachman said, I have a little business to do down the road, you will have the goodness to let me come into the
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181505100008"/>coach, with that he came in, and called the prisoner into the coach, the prisoner got into the coach, and set at the side of me, the coachman went on the opposite side. The coach went on.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know who drove the coach - A. No, I do not. It was a hackney coach, No. 737, the coach went through the bar; the prisoner unbuttoned his breeches, as we were going along, and I would not yield to his deceitfulness I was obligated of turning myself down upon my knees, then he struck me, he said if I did not yield to him, he would have my life. I told him I was a married woman and mother of a family, I held myself down on my knees. He struck me on the eye; and then he said if he could not have his will of me, he would have it of the young woman.</p>
<p>Q. Did he then do any thing to her - A. No, he then took my shawl off, and stuffed it into his breeches. I let down the sash and cried out, a gentleman was going by, whether he opened the door, or the coachman I cannot say, the coach stopped. The woman got out, and the coachman got out, and I got out, the prisoner staid in the coach; I saw the prisoner put my shawl into his breeches by the light of the lamps; I saw his person also; that is the man there at the bar. I asked him for my shawl, he would not give it me. The prisoner jumped up in the street into the coach; as soon as I got out, of the coach, I went home immediately, and the young woman with me; I told the coachman where the prisoner had put my shawl.</p>
<p>Q. Did you tell the gentleman the prisoner had the shawl in his breeches - A. That gentleman protected me home.</p>
<p>Q. Was he by when you told the coachman that the prisoner had got it in his breeches - A. He was by.</p>

The prisoner came into our shop on the 18th of April, about ten o'clock in the forenoon, she asked to look at some cotton shawls; she said, she lived over the way, at a bakers shop. I took her to the counter in that part of the shop where the shawls were; I shewed her several; she fixed on one, and before she purchased it, she said, she should like her mistress to see it; I then let her have it, and she went out, and I saw her go into the shop of Mr. Johnson; she staid there about five or ten minutes, she then came over, she returned to the shop with the shawl, saying, her mistress thought it was not good enough. She said, she thought, she would like one in the window; there were several in the window; she pointed one out in the window; after seeing it, she said, she wanted some scaffs; which I shewed her; she then fixed on one; she then said, that she wished her mistress (who lived over the way) might see it, before she purchased it, that she might not think her too extravagant; she then said, how can I get my mistress over; have you a housekeeper? I will say you want to pay your bread bill; she said, she might not cross directly over, for fear of her mistress seeing her; she went out, and instead of crossing over, she went up the next street; I then followed her; I overtook her two doors up, and said, she must return back to the shop with me; she hesitated a little at first, and afterwards went with me; when she was in the shop, I told her we wanted to know about the shawl; on which, she began to take a shawl out of her pocket; she said, she would pay me for it, but said, let her go; I told her she must not go before I fetched a constable; I fetched the constable; I gave her in charge to him.</p>
<p>Q. Had you known the prisoner before - A. No, I had not; she was not servant to Mr. Johnson, as she said, I am sure of that; she never had been her servant.</p>
<p>Q. Had you bread of Johnson - A. Yes, Mr. Taylor's house-keeper had. The constable has the shawl; I had seen that shawl a few minutes before I found it on her; I had shewn it to her among other shawls, the value of it is eleven shillings.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know what parish it is in -
<persName id="t18150510-9-person141">A. </persName> No, I do not. His house was broken into on the 12th of April. I went to bed about half past eleven; the other servants were left up, I left them up in the kitchen; before I went to bed the doors and windows of the kitchen were all fastened; I had fastened them myself. I arose next morning about twenty minutes past four, it was drawing towards day-light; the house maid and me came down to the street door; we first went into the kitchen a little after five. After we had been at the street door, we went up to our bed room again. We went down because there was a man rung at the door; the man asked if any body was sent from there with a bundle; we said, no. He said, he wanted to see the house; we said, we could not open the door at that time in the morning. A little after five, a ring of the bell came again; we went into the drawing-room; from there we went into the kitchen, when we came into the kitchen, we found the kitchen doors open; we then went out at a door that opens into the passage to come up to the parlour; I do not know whether that door was shut or not. I found all the things in other parts to where I left them the night before; we found the bread and meat which had been put into the pantry the night before, was standing on the kitchen table; we observed both the back doors of the room unbolted; one back door goes into the back yard, the other door goes in a yard, seperate from the kitchen; they were both unbolted. I bolted them myself the night before I went to bed. The sky-light was broke; there is a sky-light over the sink; the skylight was broke, some of the frame work was broke, and some glass was taken out.</p>
<p>Q. Was it broke so as to enable any person to get in - A. Yes; then when they went into the kitchen, they unbolted the back door, and by that means they were capable of getting into the back yard, and there is a gate in the back yard that takes them into the tenter ground.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181505100011"/>Q. What then did you miss - A. There was some money missing out of a gentleman's writing desk, it is a small desk with a drawer; I had put some money there the night before, one pound some shillings; there were two one-pound notes in the kitchen taken; there was a small trifle of money taken out of the house besides, but where it was, I do not particularly know; there were two towels, and a pair of shoes of mistress's; I had seen these things all safe the day before.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know the prisoner at the bar - A. No; I had never seen him before the robbery.</p>
<p>Q. You have seen some of the things since - A. I have, some.</p>

<p>Q. Do you know whether the sky-light was broke before you went to bed - A. I never know of it.</p>
<p>Q. Did you get up at any alarm at the same time the cook did - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Q. Afterwards in consequence of somebody giving you information, you went into the kitchen with the cook - A. Yes, I did; I found the back doors both standing open, I observed then the sky-light, over the sink, the frame was broke, and the glass was taken out; so that there was a space large enough for any body to come in.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know how high the sky-light is above the sink - A. No very great height.</p>
<p>Q. Did you endeavour to trace how a person might come in that way - A. I did get down that way.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the place, were there any footsteps or marks there - A. I did not observe that. There was no other part of the kitchen broke.</p>
<p>Q. Had any person gone out by the kitchen door - A. The kitchen door was wide open; there was a middle door that was fastened; the kitchen door was wide open; it was not locked. I do not know whether we shut it to or not. The middle door, which is a door in the kitchen, was fastened.</p>
<p>Q. Can any body come out of the outer part of the house into the kitchen, without passing through the middle door - A. No, they cannot.</p>
<p>Q. Did you miss any thing out of the kitchen - A. A shawl belonging to me; I lost them out of my drawer in the kitchen, a middle drawer, that is my drawer; a sheet and a frock belonging to my mistress, that I was at work on, on the over night, that was gone; and two shillings and sixpence in silver, belonging to me.</p>
<p>Q. What else - A. Four silver table spoons, they were under my care; I had seen them the day before, I make use of them every day.</p>

On the 12th of April, between three and four o'clock in the morning, I met the prisoner; I was on duty, I was in the Minories; it was dark; it might be about two hundred or three hundred yards from Mr. Dacosta's house; he had two bundles in his hand, he was walking, coming down from that part where Mr. Dacosta's house is; I turned round on my heels, and walked along side of him, he was by himself. I asked him what he had got in the bundles; he wanted to know the reason I asked; I told him, I must do what I generally did, know what were in the bundles. He said, one was a parcel he was going to send down to his mistress at Portsmouth; he said, his mistress was Mrs. Dacosta, I asked him what that other bundle was; he said, provision, bread and meat. I asked him whether he was going to send his mistress provision; he said, no; that was for himself; he was going by the ten o'clock coach, and the parcel was going by the five o'clock coach. I asked him what capacity he was in at Mrs. Dacosta's; he said, footman to Mrs. Dacosta. I then asked him where did Mr. Dacosta live; he said, No. 41, Prescott-street, Goodman's fields; that is Mr. Dacosta's house. We walked together until we came to the watchhouse; I said, young man, you can have no objection to go over the way, I am not satisfied; I laid hold of his arm; he made no resistance; we went into the watchhouse, and I examined the bundles. When I came to look at him by the light, I knew he was not a footman; he had a dirty check apron on. I asked him if he had any objection to my going down to Dacosta; he said, no I said, what name am I to ask for if I go. He said my name is Johnson. I left him in the watchhouse, and went to Mr. Dacosta's, rung the bell, and two women servant came to the door, they would not let me in; I went again between five and six o'clock in the morning, they spoke to me at the window; I told them they had been robbed; I entered the house, found the windows of the house all safe; we went into the back yard, we found the outer shutter broken open.</p>
<p>Q. The shutter that was in the yard - A. Yes. We went into the kitchen; we found the frame of the sky-light split: there was an entrance there, so that they could get into the kitchen. I examined the kitchen with the servants; the servants said what they had lost. I went back to the watchhouse, I searched the prisoner's person; I found exactly the money the servants said they had lost; two one-pound bank notes, a three-shilling piece, seven single shillings, and half-a-crown; that was all the money that was lost; he had exactly the money.</p>

I found some wood, which matched to the place where the sky-light had been broken away; there had also been feet marks in the gutter.

I did, for a quarter of an hour; afterwards I saw the prisoner with two other persons walking up Leadenhall-street again; I told the watchman of that; he followed them down Gracechurch-street; the watchman apprehended the prisoner, and the other two set off directly. The prisoner was searched; neither the seal nor the key were found on him. I am quite sure of this man, who laid hold of my watch seal, and key.</p>

Richards applied to me on the 5th, of April, in consequence of an advertisement I put in the papers; he came to me, and said, he wanted to engage me for a friend of his; he mentioned no name, any more than he said it was at Woolwich. When we came to Gracechurch-street, the prisoner went into the Spread Eagle, and he came out, and said, we must go over to the Cross Keys, the coach is there. I took my box myself; I put my box down on a step at a door, and carried it into the passage of the coffee-room; he asked the waiters if the box would be safe; they said, yes. I left my box in the passage, as the waiters said it would be safe. I sat down on the opposite side to the prisoner; he talked about my character. He called for a glass of negus; he paid for it, and gave the waiter two-pence; presently after, the Woolwich coachman went up the passage, and gave notice that the coach was ready, and asked whose coach I wanted. The waiter came into the coffee-room, and said to Richards, is there a gentleman going to Woolwich; the coachman also said to him, are you going to Woolwich; no, he said; what do you ask me such a foolish question; the coachman took no notice, but left us. The prisoner said, he would go by the next coach, a quarter before eight. He then asked me, if I had any white stockings; (I had boots on,) he said, you will not want boots, as the place I was to go to was a tavern. I told him I had plenty of white stockings. He said, there is one thing yet to be mentioned, that is, have you any white aprons; I said, if I want aprons, I can soon get them. Soon after this, Clark came in with a note to Richards; Richards looked at the note, and asked the prisoner, Clark to come inside the house. By their conversation, I learned that it was a bill. Clark went out; my trunk was still before me. After Clark went out, Richards called for a sheet of paper, and wrote a note, and wished me to take the note to a Mr. Jones, in Bull and Mouth-street, and ask him for his box coat, and in the mean while, he would go into the Poultry to search more into my character. On coming out of the room, he said to the waiter, take care of these things, let nobody have them, (pointing to my trunk,) they will be very safe here, will not they waiter; the waiter said, perfectly safe. We came out of the house together, he to go into the Poultry, and I to Bull and Mouth-street; he stopped at the gateway, and told me not to be long, or else I should lose the coach. I made the best of my way, but could not find Mr. Jones; there was no such person there. I returned back immediately to the Cross Keys, and I found that my box was gone; I went into the coffee-room, and made enquiry; I could not find either of the prisoners, Richards or Clark.</p>
<p>Q. Did Richards describe who Clark was - A. No. I next saw my box at Bow-street, on the 26th or 27th of April, and all the contents, except a pair of shoes. I lost the things on Monday, the 24th; I gave information of my loss on Tuesday morning; I then went instantly to the Cross Keys to find Richards, I stopped there until near nine o'clock.</p>
<p>Q. Have you been into the tavern at Woolwich - A. No; I never heard any thing of that place since. I saw Richards two or three times between the 10th and the 24th of April, at my lodgings in Baltic-street, he came to me there; I never saw Clark there. Richards came to me there in a hackney coach.</p>
<p>COURT. Q. The trunk remained in the same state until you left the coffee-room - A. It did. When we left the house, the waiter took care of it, into his own custody; the waiter's name is

On the 24th of April, I was in the coffee-room when both Richards and Hodson came in; they brought in luggage; Richards desired me to take charge of the luggage, and asked me if I thought it was safe there; Hodson put it down. I saw Clark come in with a letter, he delivered it to Richards. After Richard had read the letter, he called for a sheet of paper. After this letter was wrote, Hodson and Richards went out; Richards asked me if the luggage would be safe until he returned. Hodson and Richards both went out together. I did not see
<persName id="t18150510-16-person208">Clark</persName> any more. I saw Richards again in about ten minutes, he returned into the coffee-room, and asked me if I could get a porter for him to take the luggage; I got a porter; Richards went away with it. Hodson came back in about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181505100016"/>when he returned, he made enquiries for his luggage, and for Richards. Richards never returned. I never saw the trunk again until I saw it at Bow-street; I am quite sure that the trunk I saw at Bow-street, was the trunk Richards and Hodson gave me in charge.</p>

<p>Q. To Brown. Where is that public-house - A. In Kirby-street, Carnaby market. They had this trunk with them; which was afterwards claimed by Hodson. I had seen Richards before. Richards asked me if I was going home; I told him, yes. He told me he would give me a ride in a coach; he put the box into the coach, he me, and Clark, all three, went into the coach. The box was left at my house; he said, he had got it of a young man, who wanted a waiters place, and he would endeavour to get him a situation. I saw the box opened by Clark and Richards; I do not know which it was that opened it; they were both present the time it was opened; it was corded up; I believe it was not locked; the articles were most of them taken out; on the 25th of April it was opened; they both lodged in my house the night before. The same day it was opened, the 25th, two Bow-street officers came to my house; they took the box and its contents, together with Richards and Clark.</p>

I first saw the prisoner and Beadle together in King-street, Golden-square; I was calling the hour of one. They were by the Red Lion public-house window. I perceived Beadle was intoxicated with liquor. I saw the prisoner handling him by his arms. Beadle said, he had a wife and family, and he wanted to go home; the prisoner said, he would see him home. Beadle had a bundle in his hand. I heard the prisoner say, you had better deliver it to me. When the prisoner saw me take notice of him, he took Beadle across the road; he had got hold of him by the arm. Beadle said, this is not my way home; the prisoner wanted to take him through a court, and put Beadle on before him, and they went on to Lucas-court, which is no thoroughfare. The prisoner said we will go in here, and make water. The prisoner said, you had better deliver it; there were some persons in the court, and I found they both returned again, and moved up King-street about twelve or fourteen yards. The prisoner said, take hold of me by the arm. The prisoner pushed Beadle, and Beadle and the prisoner fell; the prisoner was at the top; I went to their assistance; the prisoner said, help me up, watchman, in a faint manner.

The prisoner turned to go on London-street; he had got Beadle by the arm; they went together up London-street; Beadle said, that was not his way home; he wanted to go up King-street. I followed them about three parts of the way up London-street, I saw them turn round the corner into Marlborough-street; I lost sight of them, I waited about a minute; I heard Beadle call out watch three times; immediately I turned the corner into Marlborough-street, and saw Beadle had got the prisoner down. On my coming up, I asked Beadle what was the matter; Beadle said, the rascal has robbed me of my watch. I said, I thought there was something of that kind going forward; I said so in the hearing of the prisoner. I seized the prisoner by the collar; another watchman came up, and seized him also; a third watchman came up, and took Beadle to the watch-house, and we two took the prisoner. On entering into the watchhouse, the prisoner attempted to make his escape, he tore the sleeve of his coat off. Beadle gave charge of him, and I conducted Beadle home. After I had seen Beadle home, I went round with my candle and lanthorn to the spot where we took the prisoner; in an area by the light of the candle, we saw the watch in one part, and the key in another; the glass was broke, and the face also; this was at three o'clock; we went again at five; I, and the beadle of the parish,

I removed that box, and shewed another, she then made choice of our card.</p>
<p>Q. Did Atkinson ask the price of the lace - A. No, Smith chose two yards and a half of lace at six shillings a yard. During the time I was measuring the two yards and a half, she removed two cards of lace from the box, she then returned one of the cards and that card she put on the counter; I communicated my suspicions to Mrs. James, she sent for a constable, Mrs. James came home before the constable came, a constable came; Mr. James then asked me what I had to say respecting the prisoners, I said I suspected she had a card of lace; she said they was very welcome to search her; she was searched and one card of lace was found in her pocket; I saw it taken from her; that card I saw taken from the box; she dropped another of the cards from her pocket; the lace that was found in her pocket was twenty two yards, at two shillings a yard.</p>

Mr. James picked up one card, he said, she had just dropped it, I searched Smith, and in her pocket, I found this card of lace, it has the shop mark on it. When I had secured the lace, she pretended to faint away, and threw herself on the ground, I shewed the lace to Mr. James, and he claimed it, I asked Atkinson whether she knew her; she said she did; she was sorry she came in with her, I have kept the lace ever since in the same state as I found it.</p>
<p>MR. JAMES. This lace is my property, it has my private mark upon it, both cards of lace are my property.</p>
<p>Smith's Defence. I called on Atkinson and asked her if she would go to Holborn with me to buy a bit of lace; we went to Mr. James's, and the person shewed me two boxes of lace, they were all very dear; a card of lace was found on my clothes, I leave it to the mercy of the court.</p>

He worked that gold out process, is master's shop where he was always accustomed to what he parted it into so many weights, I see him do that I see him heat it on the 4th of April in the morning he went away. On Sunday master sent to know why he had not been at work, I went to his house, I told him, master wanted to know the reason why he had not been at work, he said, he took some gold home, and that he had lost it; that was the reason he had not been to work.</p>
<p>Q. Do you know whether he had any licence to work at home, you don't know perhaps - A. I do know that none of master's men work at their own home, they all work in master's shop.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I took the gold out of the shop, and put it in my pocket; I went out of the place in a hurry, and I happened to meet with two persons, shopmates, we got drinking such a quantity of liquor, that I was insensible, so that the next morning I played truant, having found I had lost Mr. Redford's gold; I know no more of the gold than Mr. Redford does.</p>

On the 8th of February, he came home between one and two o'clock, as near as I can recollect; I asked him where his list was, that he had been out with in the morning; he produced his book, which contains the accounts of that day so far as concerned the prisoner.</p>
<p>Q. Does it contain the eighty pounds of Greenwood - A. No, it does not; this is his bill list. In this list given him in the morning, the sum of eighty pounds is scratched out. When I saw this bill of Greenwood's not accounted for; I asked what he had done with it, he replied, it was due on the 10th of that month. There were two other bills that were returned; he gave no account of them. The bills speak for themselves; they were put into the box. I supposed the eighty pound bill to have been an undue bill, and to have been put into the box, in order to have been taken out again on the 10th.</p>
<p>Q. At that time had you any suspicion of the prisoners dishonesty - A. None at all. I took what he said, for granted, and did not go down, and look at the box.</p>
<p>Q. In consequence of something that occured, the prisoner left your service and house - A. He did; in consequence of which, I made enquiry at Greenwood's about the bill.</p>
