I went to bed at about two o'clock, on the morning of the 22nd of December,leaving my house perfectly secure in all respects; more particularly that night, as I had been robbed the night previous. At about four o'clock in the morning, we were awakened by a strange noise; it was very dark; my wife got up; she is not here; the sweeps were to come at about five o'clock; she got up and let them in at that hour. In consequence of what she came and told me, I went down, and found the cellar door out side the house broken, and the grated one outside in the street also broken. I called the watchman, and found the prisoner in the back cellar.</p>

When I awakened in the morning, I found myself in the dark, and could not remember where I was, and I tried to get out, and that piece of wood came off by pulling the door. When they came in, I was not concealed by any means, I stood up. When I was searched, there was no instruments of house-breaking

I missed some before they went out; they went past where they were. There were three men and two women in the shop besides them; this was Saturday, and a busy evening; the value was between three and four pounds.</p>

On the 23rd of last month, the Saturday, I saw the three prisoners at the bar, in company with a lame man, coming out of a public-house, in New-street, Covent Garden. I suspected that there was something wrong going on, and I turned in Bedfordbury, and watched them. They had a lame man in company; the prisoners Cole and Page went on first, and the lame man and the boy, Scott, followed;they went down into Chandos-street, and thence into Maiden-lane, and through the different streets, until they came into Drury-lane; they went as direct a line as they could to this man's shop; before they stopped, they looked through the window for a minute or so, and then went about twenty yards below the shop, and had some conversation together. I placed myself on the opposite side of the way, and continued watching them. The boy, Scott, followed the lame man in; as soon as he got in, he took a bundle of shoes, and was coming out, and Page made room for him; he came out of the shop with the shoes under his arm; the prisoner, Page, was covering him while he stole the shoes in the shop. I let him go until I thought he had got out of the hearing of the other prisoners, I then took him into custody; he began hallooing, but I told him if he hallooed, I would choake him. Cole only stood and looked through the window. I left my brother officer to watch the other men. I took the shoes to the office, and locked the boy up.</p>

I saw the three prisoners come out with the lame man at the public-house; Cole was the man who went to different corners of the street, looking for the boy, not knowing that he was in custody; Page and the lame man were still in the shop at the time I returned; on their coming out, they all three joined company together. I went so near them that I could hear their conversation; I got close to their heels; I heard them in conversation in the dark, saying, they supposed the boy must have returned to the house whence they first came out of. Cole knocked the lame man down, saying, "he was going to bilk him out of his whack, he said, he would not let one out of his swagg." I took Page in custody, and took him up to the office. I could not get the other two. In about half an hour afterwards, Cole came up to the office, to know if any thing very particular happened within two hours, and I took him into custody. I searched Page, and found a bad dollar in one pocket, and a bad dollar in another pocket.</p>
<p>Page's Defence. This lame man owed Mr. Cole and me some money. When we met him, we asked him for it; he said, he had only got a one-pound note; but he was going to buy a pair of shoes, and if we would go with him, when he got change, he would pay us the money. We waiked with him to this shoe-maker's shop, Cole waited on the outside; the lame man could only find one pair to fit him, and that was not bound; we agreed to call again in an hour for them. We then went to have something to drink, and on coming out, the lame man said he should not know the shop again. Then Cole said he wanted to bilk him; that was an excuse not to get change. Then they fell quarrelling, and Cole made a bit at the lame man: I took the lame man's part, and was quitting the quarrel when Mr. Godfrey took me into custody.</p>
<p>Cole's Defence. What this young man says, is true.</p>

It was agreed between us, that we were to meet again; we did so, both I and Wright. The prisoner said he had been, and had seen the man, and had got a note, and knew which two to take. We were to go the next morning early with him, and drive them to London; this was about five or six o'clock in the evening. We went into the field where they were,into Mr. Hawley's field, a Monkton; it was near one or two o'clock in the morning; he shewed us which two we were to take, and we took them; we took two heiffers; I don't know rightly what colour they were; there was one rather bigger than the other; they were of a brownish colour, with a white mark down the back. We selected these two, and we drove them along the road to London; we came the Lee-bridge-road. When we got to London, we took them down to the slaughter-house. The prisoner came very near to the place, which was near Smithfield; I can't say what direction he gave us, but he shewed us the street we were to go down, and he stopped until we came back; he gave us the note too; he told us we were to receive six shillings from the man; I don't know the name of the street. I and Wright went together. We got to London at about six o'clock. We delivered the note to a man in the yard; we did not receive any thing from him. The money was thrown out of the window, two three-shilling pieces. We left the brasts there. We met the prisoner in the street again, very near the place where we left him.

I have been in court while Gregory was giving his testimony; I have heard what he has said respecting our drivieg the beasts from Chigwell to London; Gregory's account is true. I went home after we returned.</p>
<p>-BACON. I am a carcas butcher; I live at Red Lion-alley, Cow Cross, Smithfield, about three hundred yards from the market Smithfield. On Tuesday morning, the 21st of November, between five and six o'clock, two heiffers were brought to me to be killed, two young men brought them to me; they brought this note, which I have in my hand; I signed my name to it to know it again.</p>

<p>Mr. Bacon. I had known the prisoner before; I had seen him once; I had killed a heiffer for him before, on the 27th of September; when I paid him for the other heiffer, he promissed me a hair. I saw no marks on these two heiffers; they were red sided and white backed ones, and one was considerably heavier than the other. I can't tell about the difference of the horns. When I received that note, I chuched six shillings out of the window. I sent a a message to Mr. Lloyd. by Mr. Poole. I killed one of these heiffers on Tuesday, and not receiving any orders, I killed the other on the Wednesday; the hydes went with my own bydes to Leadenhall-market, on the Tuesday, to Mr. Warmington, who is a hyde-salesman, in Leadenhall-market. All commission beasts that I kill, I put a mark on the nose of the letters of the owner's name, and the hydes of my own beasts, I mark with three cuts. I was directed to stop the sale of the hydes, until the Friday following, which would be about the 2nd of December, and then if there was no word sent up, to sell them. I saw Mr. Barrell on Friday, the 1st of December; he came to my house, and enquired of me about two heiffers. In consequence of the conversation that passed between us, he and I went to Mr. Warmington's at Leadenhall-market; there
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181601100007"/>was a lot of hydes produced, consisting of two or three and twenty. Mr. Burrell and I turned the hydes over one at a time, and I asked him if he could tell his hydes if he saw them, and he said, he could. In the course of the turning over, he selected one, and Mr. Warmington's foreman picked the other out. On Friday, the 24th of November, I saw the prisoner at the bar; it was the very next day after I received the heiffers; I saw him at my own house; he came to know about the heiffers; he asked how I got on with them? I told him very badly. I said there hangs one, and the other is at market, not sold; the one I pointed out to him, was one of those brought by the young men to whom I threw six shillings out of the window. He said there was a considerable deal of fat; I told him, I did not think so. Then I asked him if he had seen

I know the prisoner at the bar very well, and have known him many years. I saw the prisoner in November last, about the 24th; I saw him about some beasts. He said to me, where have you been. I have not seen you; I said your beef is not sold; he said, I know that; I have seen one in the slaughter-house; but you can let me have a little money on them, though they are not sold. I told him I had got another person to be answerable; where was that person I had received a note on the Thursday night or Friday morning; I won't be certain which. I told him I would not give him the money until got an order from the person. He said, I can't get an order, for the man is gone into Yorkshire. He said you will let me have a pound note. I told him that Charles Bacon had got the beef, and I did not mind letting him have a pound on Charles Bacon's account I was to receive the money for the beasts, for the same party as before. The prisoner can't write himself, and the former note is different. Bacon was to slaughter the beasts, and I was to sell them. I had transactions with the prisoner before, one bullock. Bacon slaughtered the bullock, and accounted to me for the produce of it, and I settled with the prisoner for the amount of that bullock. The conversation I had with the prisoner at the bar when he asked for a pound note, was relating to the two heiffers at Bacon'.</p>

One of them, the biggest, was the darkest colour; her horns stood rather up, and wide. The smallest of the two was lighter, and her horns stood rather straight from her head. I had had the large one the greater part of the summer, and the other near two years; they were heiffers, and I was well acquainted with the marks of both. I went to Mr. Bacon's on the 1st of December; I described to Mr. Bacon the heiffers I had lost; it was the same description I have now given. In consequence of that description, he and I went to Leadenhall-market, to Warmington's; there was a lot of hydes produced there, in which these two skins were. I selected one. Mr. Bacon turned the skins over, one by one, and he made a stop at some of the skins which appeared something like, saying, is that yours; I told him to keep on, and when I saw it, I would tell him the skin. He turned over one or two more, and then I said pull out that, I can swear to that; the one I fixed upon was pulled out, and I knew it belonged to the smallest of the two heiffers of which I have been speaking. One of the horns of that had been broken, and I knew it by that circumstance. When I came to the largest, I did not exactly know it at the first moment, it was very dirty, and I was not positive at the moment; I have since known it to the hyde of the biggest beast; I knew it from the colour, and part of the old pitch mark, C.M. and from the horn which stood in; the pitch mark was quite visible The two heiffers had the mark of C.M. on the off side; it was rather worn out on the larger heiffer, but quite plain on the first. From all these marks, I had not the least doubt of their being my hydes, and the hydes of the two heiffers which I lost.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. I met Mr. Kendon, and he asked me to go with him to take two heiffers to drive to Town. I went with him to the field where they were, and he tied his horse to the gate, and he went in with me, and told me to drive up two, which he pointed out; but they were so wild, I could not. He asked me if I would know them again; I told him I should, and he asked me if I would drive them to Cow Cross, Smithfield; he told me to get somebody to help me, and I got the two young men. I have lived with Admiral Harvey as land bailiff, and my prosecutor has known me upwards of twenty years.</p>

<p>Prosecutor, I could not see him come out of the ware-house, because it was so dark, but I saw him in the passage with the goods, and I saw the other person who is not here, come from the other side of the way, and open the bag for him to put them in; and I took him in the altitude of putting them in.</p>

On Friday evening, at about six o'clock, I was in Cloth Fair; I had a parcel, I was bringing it from Mr. Harrison's, at Smithfield Bars; I was going to cross to Mr. Gadnay's, a man came behind me, and put his hand on my mouth, and threw me down, and took my parcel from me; I gave the alarm of stop thief, and he ran away with it, and he found it was too heavy, and he dropped it. I am sure it was the prisoner. I ran after him; I saw him with the bundle, as he ran away, and as I was running after him. I saw him drop it; he was stopped very soon. I had lost sight of him just before he was stopped; he was taken directly. I am sure he is the man who took the parcel from me; there was a light that I could see him; throwing of me down, I could see his face.</p>

<p>JAMES CUNNINGHAM. I am a milk-man. On Friday evening, I went into Cloth Fair, with intent of buying a milk-walk. I was sitting down for some time, and I heard the cry of stop thief; I got up, and went to the door, and saw the prisoner at the bar run; I pursued him; he turned round a corner, and I caught him there; I lost sight of him just whilst he got round the corner; I caught him immediately; not two hundred yards from where I was sitting down; I brought him back to the house I came out of; he had no hat when I caught him; he had a light coloured coat on. I ordered a light to be brought to the door, that the boy might be sure; the light was brought, and I asked the boy if that was the man, and he said he was. I asked the prisoner where he lived; he said in Whitechapel. I asked him, had he come from Whitechapel without a hat, but he made no reply. He said, he had been seeing a friend of his named Long, home. He stood behind a shutter when I caught him.</p>

Under the bed, I found some mats, such as upholsterer's pack their goods in. I then locked the prisoner up in the Compter.

I asked him then where he was to meet Hawkins; Hawkins had at that time absconded; he said, he was to meet him at the Swan with Two Necks, in Tothill-street,at ten that morning; but was prevented from fulfilling his engagement, by being detained in the workhouse. In consequence of that. I went to the Swan with Two Necks, and gave the landlord some directions. I was afterwards sent for by the landlord; I took these articles from the prisoner Hawkins; he was laying asleep, with his head on this bundle,(producing a bundle,) round his neck he had this handkerchief, (producing it,) which appears to be torn by getting of the Chevaux de frise. I asked him where the remainder of the things was? he admitted he had committed the robbery, but said, he got drunk, and lost the things.</p>
<p>"A confession of the prisoner Ferguson was here put in and read, stating, that after the rest of the paupers had retired to bed, the two prisoners broke into a certain room, termed the oakham room, where was a number of the paupers boxes, which they plundered of the various articles named in the indictment; that this spoil was to be equally divided between the prisoners. That Hawkins was discharged the next morning, and that the deponent (Ferguson,) threw the wearing apparel over the gate to him, and part caught on the chevaux-de-frise, which they could not ge off, and which led to a discovery, and to deponent (Ferguson's) detection."</p>

The two prisoners at the bar came and knocked at the door, on Sunday morning, when I was cleaning my shoes. When I opened the door, I stood in the way; they shoved me back and came in; they had not asked to come in, nor anything before that. They then took up a book which was on a board, and began to read; then Wiltshire put his hand behind him, at the same time he shewed me a coat, and said was it to sell; he put the cloth in question under the coat, and said, there my boy, here is the coat. The cloth was about two yards, and was lying on the counter behind him, and I saw him put it under the coat. Then he wrapped the coat up in a bundle, and said they could not stop any longer. They then went out together; and I called my brother; I saw them go to the next door, my brother went after them. I never saw the cloth again.</p>

In consequence of informatio I received I went to Bedford Bury; my brother had described Sherlock, as blind of an eye; I knew them both before by sight. Coming from Vine-street, I met both the prisoners together, I seized them both by the neck-handkerchiefs; Sherlock said I hurt his neck I brought them to the constable's door, but he was not at home. They said if I would let them loose, they would stay until the constable came; I did so, and then Wiltshire ran off immediately, and Sherlock struck me several times; I called for assistance, and a gentleman came who and helped me to take him to St. Martin's watch-house.

I was ordered out at five o'clock upon business, to wait upon a gentleman; it was not then quite dark. The front door opens into a passage, and I secured it upon the latch when I went out. I came back at about twenty minutes past six; I had left different pieces of cloth on the counter, and those pieces which I have lost, were on a shelf by the door. When I came back, I missed three pieces of cloth. I have never seen any of the three pieces, but the one I saw at Bow-street. I met the prisoner Rawley; he passed close on the flags, and I called out stop thief,and took him in Great Guilford-street. When I came back to my shop, I found three pieces of cloth missing.</p>
<p>GEORGE VAUGHAN. I belong to Bow-street. I was on duty on the 15th of December, I saw the prisoners on the 14th, at about five o'clock in the evening. I was in company with Barrett, and saw Batts and Rawlay in Gray's-inn-lane. I saw them on the 15th; I watched them until they came to Mr. Poole's house; I saw the three prisoners in company with a forth person; I was in a house opposite the prosecutor's house; I was in that house on suspicion, because we had reason for it; my attention was awakened the night before; Barrett was with me. I went to the house of Mr. Poole,and communicated something to him. I observed the three prisoners, in company with a fourth person, come up the street; they passed by Mr. Poole's door. The one that is not here, remained about five doors from Mr. Poole's; the other three came down again towards Poole's house. Farthing went to the railing, and looked over, as it he were looking into Poole's shop; as soon as he had done that; he went towards the other two prisoners, and then Batts. went into the passage of Mr. Poole's house; then he came out. Rawley then immediately went into Mr. Poole's passage, as Batts had done just before.Batts then went in twice after that. Rawley first came out. and joined in company with Farthing at the door; then they went away from the door. Then Farthing took his situation, as before, and continued to do so as if he was looking into the shop. Then Batts went in a third time. I then moved myself from the situation in which I was, and saw him lay hold of the handle of the door, which door he opened; he came out, and spoke to Rawley, who was standing at the step of the door. Batts spoke to Rawley; Rawley went into the passage; I saw him go into the shop of Mr. Poole. In about three minutes he came out, with some cloth undes his arm. He turned towards the left, towards Brutfswick-square, in company with Farthing and Batts. I saw Rawley thrown down the cloth, which I picked up. When I came across the way, I found the prosecutor had got hold of Rawley; I am sure he dropped the cloth, for he was never out of my sight. I had seen somebody running, but I did not know it was Mr. Poole. Farthing was just by Rawley at the time he was stopped. Batts and Rawley had crossed to that side of the way.</p>

I was going up Tower-hill, close by the Trinity House, and there was a person in the habit of a sailor, in company with another man, who was a Jew; it was between eleven and twelve, on Tower-hill that I met the prisoner, there was another person with him, like a Jew. The prisoner was dressed in a blue jacket, and canvass trowsers,and was dressed like a sailor. The sailor appeared as if he was selling a watch to the Jew; he tapped me on the shoulder, and asked me if I wanted to buy a good watch; I told him I had a very good one, and by no means wanted his. I told him I had no money to purchase his watch. He told me he was forced to sell her for want of money, and he said, sooner than he would let the b-y Jew have the watch, he would let me have a bargain of it. I told him I wanted no bargain of him, nor did I wish to have any thing to do with the watch; but I told him if he was in want of money to stop a little;accordingly I went away, and did my own business. When I came back, I found the sailor in the same place; the Jew said, if I would buy the watch, he would give me ten or eleven guineas for it; that was while I was away. When I came back the prisoner still wanted to sell me the watch. Then we went into a public-house. I told him I had no means of buying it, nor was I a judge. He told me he was forced to sell her, as he had no money, and she cost him fourteen guineas; he said he bought her in Liverpool, or some other sea port. I told him I would not buy the watch; but if he was so much in want of money, I should give him my watch, and a little money for his watch; I gave him five pounds and my watch, and he was to return it in three days after, and I was to have his watch the while. I parted with the money merely to help him, as he made believe to be distressed. When I went out of the public-house, the Jew asked me if I had bought the watch; I told him no; but I had relieved the sailor. I never saw the man afterwards until the day after, nor did I ever see my watch again, or money.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. Adolphus. I told the prisoner to come to Mr. Lacey's, at the end of three days, and he was committed and put into prison before the three days had expired; so that he could not return at the end of three days.

<p>WILLIAM BARRETT. I am acting as a Bow-street officer. On the 19th of last month, I was in company with Johnson, and Woodroffe, in the Strand; I saw the two prisoners at the opposite side of the way. knowing their characters, I took notice of them. I saw something underneath Butt's coat; we watched their motions for about an hundred yards; seeing them speak to each other; this was a little after six. I caught hold of Butts, and Johnson caught hold of Cassimere. I asked Butts what he had got, and he said nothing. I unbuttoned his coat, and took that bundle of silk, (producing it.) I asked him where he got it, and where he meant to take it to. He hesitated some time, and could not satisfy us, only that he had picked it up in Scotland yard. When I took it from him, this handkerchief was over it;he said he picked it up; I told him that could not be, for it was a very dirty night, and the bundle was quite clean. We then took them to Bow-street. By the letters C. H. we guessed it belonged either to somebody at Charing Cross, Cheapside, or Chelsea; at last we found it belonged to the prosecutrix.</p>

On the 14th of December last, I was in company with Mr. Glover, who is an inspector of the Bank. In consequence of information which I received, I went to Ward's-row, Bethnell Green. I had watched the prisoner there a day or two before; I saw her coming from No. 9, Ward's-row. Upon seeing her, I took her into custody, I told her she was in custody, and I must search her; she said very well. I found on her a purse, in which was upwards of thirty pounds in good notes, some gold, and a key of a box; we were at this time at a public-house. I told her to sit down, whilst I examined the notes; she did so, and on finding the notes were good, I asked her if she had any other notes good or bad in her possession? she said not any. I proceeded to search her I was about to unbutton her pelisse, when she
<persName id="t18160110-36-person313">drew</persName> a small paper parcel from her bosom, and gave it to me saying, there sir, here they are, take them. Before I opened the parcel, I asked her what it contained? and she said forged notes, I have not had them in my possession above three minutes. I asked her if she had got any more, and she said not any. I told her I must proceed in searching her, and I did so. Underneath the underpart of her stays I found another small parcel, which contained twelve one-pound notes; they were all bad notes. I then sent her to the office, and I went to No. 9, Ward's-row, and saw Mr. Nightingale; I asked him where the prisoner's room was, describing her to him; he pointed out the room, and unlocked the door, he did in point of fact open the door. In that room I found a box, which I unlocked with the key I found on the prisoner; and in it I found two hundred and fifty four one-pound bad notes; and ninety nine two pound notes all bad. I took them and the box and Mr. Nightingale to the office in Marlborough-street. On Nightingales going into the room where she was, he taxed her with having brought him into trouble, by placing forged notes in his house. She said you have nothing to do with it, the room, the box, and the notes are mine, and I will take all consequences on myself. She requested I would let him out of custody; she said she had hired the room of him, under a pretence of putting contraband goods there. I marked the notes I took from her person. (Notes put into the hand of witness.) These are the ten one-pound notes I took from her bosom, I marked them, and delivered them to Mr. Glover. (Other notes put into the hand of the witness.) These are the twelve, I took from under her stays; they are also marked. (Other notes put into the hands of the witness.) These are the notes I found in her room, in her box; they are also marked. I asked her where she procured them, and she said that she would never tell.</p>
<p>THOMAS GLOVER. I am inspector of the Banknotes, of the Bank of England. I accompained the last witness Foy; I saw the notes taken from her person, but did not see those found that were in the box.(Three notes taken from the parcel found in the prisoner's bosom, and put into the hands of the witness.) These are all forged; the remaining seven of this parcel are also forged; also the twelve in the other parcel are forged. All the notes are of the same kind of filling up. All the signatures are the same hand writing; all the two-pound notes are from the same plate, and all filled up alike; they are all forged.</p>

This is the same house in which the prisoner and the deceased lived; he himself lodged in the gatrret, and she lodged in the same room; she was the woman he cohabit with. This was on the Saturday night, and Christmas Day was on the Monday following; I don't know what time I went out; but when I was returning, it was nearer eight then seven; when I came up to the house, I saw a great mob round the door; when I went up to see what it was, I saw the deceised laying on the steps of the door. When I went up to her, she could hardly speak. It is impossible for me to know whether she was in danger of death, nor do I know that she was sensible, as she was in a dying way; I don't think she had her perfect senses about her; she was carried to the watchhouse, and I went with her to the watchhouse; there she was in a sensible state. Afterwards she went to the Hospital; but I don't know whether she died going to the Hospital, or at the Hospital. I saw the prisoner that evening at the King and Queen, in Norton Falgate; I asked him how the woman came out of the window? He swore, and said how did he know. I told him he ought to know, because the woman had lodged with him upwards of two months? He said he had set by his own fire side, while she broke the windows with her kunckles; he did not say what window. I said, as he had lodged with the woman, he ought to have come down stairs, and seen what was the matter with her. He said if she had a mind to break her neck out of the window, that was nothing to him, and he swore again. I don't know whether they-had been quarrelling that day; I had not seen her or him either; I very seldom saw them.</p>

I live in the next house, on the adjoining floor of the prisoner; I live up three pair of stairs, and the prisoner lived three pair of stairs in the next house; there is nothing but a lath and plaster division between. They were always quarrelling and wrangling; I knew the prisoner's voice, and I could distinguish the deceased's from it. At about eight o'clock in the evening of the 23rd, I heard the prisoner and the deceased wrangling; I heard him get up in a very great passion, and she came against the partition. He pushed her down two or three steps, by reason of which, she fell against my wainscott. I could see nothing; I could hear him go into the room again, and her follow him: I heard him get up and force her towards the door again; she said "you won't" three times. I understood that he was endeavouring to push her down stairs, and she said "you won't."Then I heard her fall down the whole pair of stairs. She said, "don't murder me," three times. The prisoner said, he did not want to murder her; but he would have his money. He shut his door, and went towards the fire, as I could hear. The woman was then down one pair of stairs; then I heard her groan very low. Then I heard the stair case window break; I heard it break four or five times; in about six or seven minutes, I heard her fall out; that was the two pair of stairs stair case. The prisoner at that time was in his room. Hearing this, I ran down stairs; she was laying just at the foot of the steps, on the flagstone, just under the window. I never saw either of them to my knowledge before. The neighbours came round, and I went to my own house.</p>

I heard the deceased cry "murder," several times, and I heard her say, "for God's sake some good Christian come and help me" I heard the window break several times, It was ten minutes after this that I heard the window break; I could not tell what window; I did not see it at the time. I heard nothing else. Afterwards I went down after she fell out, and saw her laying on her back on the stones; she looked sensible in her eyes; she did not

<p>ANN KELSEY. I live in this alley; my house is on the opposite side of the way to the prisoner's; it was up one pair of stairs. Between seven and eight, I heard the woman cry out "murder," I knew her voice; I went and opened my window,but saw nothing of her. I never held any conversation with the woman. I thought I could see a head hang out of the window, between seven and eight o'clock. I asked her what was the matter? and she said, she wanted to get out, and she said, if she could not get out, she would throw herself out of the window; I said, don't do that, until some body comes to you. I directly shut up the window, and came to my own fire place. My husband came down, and sat by the fire. I heard some thing fall out ef the window, very heavy; that was in a very few minutes after she said "she would throw herself out of window." Upon hearing this fall, I ran down with a candle, and went to the woman; she was laying with her foot in the kinnel; I went to her, and said, poor woman, have you hurt yourself, and she opened her eyes, and could not speak.</p>

I remember the evening of Saturday, the 23rd; the deceased was brought to the Hospital soon after eight o'clock; she was dead. On my examining her, there was a bruize at the hinder part of her head; on removing the bone of the head, there was a quantity of fused blood between the duramater and the brain; the pressure of the fused blood was the cause of her death; there was neither fracture nor depression. She died of concussion. This exhavasated blood would occasion stupefection, and death, and might be produced from the blow we understand she received. I have no doubt that a fall would occasion it.</p>
