His wife was employed in rubbing something in a wet rag, which she threw under the bed, and which I afterwards picked up. I told them to stand up, for they were prisoners., I was tying them together, when the man threw his left hand up, and put something in his mouth; I immediately seized him by the throat, and he chuckled a little, and he threw up forty into my hand; they are all brass, in the shape of a sixpence; there is a mark of a little a on almost all of them; they were so when I took hold of them. I searched him; but there was nothing more on him. I then searched his wife, and found a quantity on he; they were in her pocket; there were also six finished in her pocket. All the pieces I found, finished, or unfinished, were marked with the letter a, which on all of them seemed to me made with the same punch. The finished ones were rolled up with paper between them; they were brighte when I found them, than they are now they now assume a greenish appearance. The bustle brought Squibbing with the other two prisoner, and I tied them all together, and searched the two Mitchells; on the elder

I also found a tite; it appeared to a have been used for brass; also a pair of cissazes; they have been used for brass; the brass is on them where they have been cutting it. A small pair of plyers; they are brassy also. Also a small quantity of cream of letter, and a small quantity of salt. I don't know the use of these articles; a rubbing stick like the other, and a little drop of aquafortis in a bottle; two pieces of pumic stone, and a sheat of sand paper, unused. I also found some six pences, which fell behind young Mitchell; they appeared to fall from her; I picked them up near her. there were still a finished state, wraped up in paper, like the others; they have also the letter a. I told her, I have got them; but she made no answer.</p>

<persName id="t18160710-1-person55">JOHN</persName> M'MILLAN. I am a rope-maker by trade. I know the four prisoners at the bar, from a late acquaintance; the first time I saw them was at Diffield, in Yorkshire; that is about seven weeks since. From a short conversation then, I learned that he was a drover. I saw no more of them until about a fortnight after, when I saw them together in Hull; I then formed a public-house acquaintance with them; but nothing farther. I agreed to travel to London with them, and the man said, that I should not want any of the necessaries of life. Accordingly, I agreed to travel with them to London. We embarked at Hull, and came to Burton, where we stopped that night; I did not see any of them do any thing extraordinary until we got to Stamford; I there saw James Mahoffey employed with a file scouring and rubbing of brass under a hedge; it was a wet day. It was a thin sheet, which had been cut up, and rounded to the size of sixpences; nothing more passed until we got to Peterborough, which was at about five o'clock in the evening; James Mahoffey went to work, I saw him; I had a full opportunity of seeing him colour some of these pieces; he put colour out of a piece of paper, and it produced an effect to make it look like silver. We did not drive cattle on the way to London; it was on a Sunday when we arrived in London. We occupied a room in Mrs. O'Neill's; the four prisoners at the bar and I went to Mrs. O'Neill's, in Carrier-street, St. Giles's; we had a ledging there until Tuesday, consisting of two beds; that served the whole five. We remained there until Tuesday, and then we took the lodging for a week, on condition that I was to sleep below in another bed, and we were to pay seven shillings and sixpence a week; we continued there from Tuesday until the Monday following. During the time we were there, we lived together; they were then employed in the same service which absolutely I have sworn to; I saw them. I went to the cutler's to get the scissors sharpened for the same execution. On the Monday, I was down along with Mary Mitchell, the younger, at Greenwich, and circulated twelve. We afterwards went on Tuesday to M'Lawrence's, in Bainbridge-street; two rooms were taken there; the one on the right hand belonged to the two Mitchell's; the other to Mahoffey and me. The morning after I went to this house, Mahoffey after preparing seventeen sixpences, gave me a penny to procure a pennyworth of aquafortis; I went to a chemist's, and got it, without any qustions what it was to do; by his request, I gave it to

In about fifteen minutes after that, she came into the room in which I was, with that cup, and delivered it into Mahoffey's hand in his room; it had then some stuff in it, more than it has now. He immediately applied it to colour those seventeen pieces which he had prepared; he succeeded in that, and affected it. He then wrapped them up in paper, sundry with paper, and told me to go up Highgate-road, and buy any small article; but return him two pence out of each sixpence. On my return from that place, I was apprehended. I put them all off but five. The last words Mahoffey said to me were if I was apprehended, to swallow them, and they would injure me not; that was the same evening on which I was afterwards escorted to Bainbridge-street by three officers. Those five which I had not uttered, the gentleman of the name of Squibb got.</p>

<interp inst="t18160710-3-person82" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am an officer of Marlborough street. I know the last witness. In consequence of information she gave me; I gave her directions to act under my authority. I furnished her in the morning of the 11th of May, with two eighteenpenny-pieces; before that, I searched her, and ascertained that she had no other money, neither good, nor bad. Craig was in company with me. Craig, she, and I, went towards Shropshire-place, Pancrass-street; I stopped at a public-house at the corner of the street; the woman went away; I sent her. I stood there better than half or three quarters of an hour before she returned; we then went to Mulvey's house; I then told Mrs. Mulvey I must see what she had about her; and she said, do you think I have got any bad money about me, with that, she took out of her pocket three eighteenpenny-pieces, a shilling, and three halfpence, and jinked them on the hearth stone, and said, you hear they are good. I then told her to give them to me. She did, and I found two of the eighteenpenny-pieces were
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100006"/>the two which I had given to the last witness to purchase these with. I then searched her pockets; but she had nothing else. I then searched the room; I found two papers of cream of tartar, and a quantity of blanks of the size of a shilling, in an unfinished state; four were the size of a shilling, and four the size of a sixpence; they were pinned up in one of the bottom corners of the window curtain I then searched the table-drawer, and found two files with brass in the teeth of them; I found a pair of scissors, but there is nothing on them. I also found a quantity of clippings of copper in a little bag; I found a bottle on the shelf, with nothing in it, and I found an old tea-pot, with a quantity of salt in it; and in the room, I found a quantity of rags, some wet and some dry; they are stained with something; I found a little tin pot in the cupboard, which had a strange smell; I found a small stamp with the letter A upon it. I found nothing else. Craig and I conveyed the woman to the watchhouse. I locked the door, and took the key in my pocket. Before I left the room, I saw a boy of the name of Rowley; he and his father went to the watchhouse. I locked the room door, and fastened the window. We returned in the course of a quarter of an hour, we found the room as I had left it. While we were there, I saw Rowley and his father; Rowley's father gave me twenty-nine counterfeits, and the boy gave me one. I afterwards saw
<persName id="t18160710-3-person83">Margaret</persName> M'Manus on the next evening, about ten o'clock; I saw her at the corner of East-street, Paddington-street, at the watering-house. I have applied this punch to several of the finished shilling, to some of those which I received from the last witness, the mark on them appears to be such as is made with this punch. I have applied the punch also to those given me by Rowley's father, and the mark is the same, and I believe it to be made by that punch.</p>

<p>Examined by the COURT. I had marked the eighteenpenny-pieces with a small cross on their edges.</p>
<p>WILLAM CRAIG. I went with Burton to apprehend the prisoners; I went in company with the two last witnesses to the house in Shropsh re-place. The woman knocked at the window, and the man rushed out. I was behind, and could not see if a blow was given to Burton; Burton told me to secure him; I went after him, and as I was going down the court, I saw the window opened, and a quantity of things like shillings thrown out; I was busily ingaged with the man, whom I took, and was bringing back. I searched him, and found five three-shilling pieces, two shillings, and some halfpence. I took the man to Pancrass watchhouse. I then returned to the prisoners's lodging alone. I found these blanks in the table drawer, some not round. In a box at the other end of the room, I found a paper with seven pieces of mettal in it. In different parts of the room I picked up pieces of sand paper, more immediately near the fire place, which appeared to have been used for working mettal; I found also a pair of scissors, pinchers, and a hammer, which are all slightly discoloured with mettal.</p>

As I was going up Petticoat-lane; a person rushed right across me; he ran against me; as I was endeavouring to defend myself, the person suddenly pulled my watch out of my fob, and ran off immedieately; he came from the opposite side of the way, and ran across me in a side direction. I had not observed him on the opposite side of the way; I have every reason to suppose he ran from a door against which he stood. The push was violent; I did not fall by it; it moved me from the position I was in; it moved me on one side. I immediately hallooed out to the watchman, and called stop thief. The watchman called stop thief; I did not at all perceive the countenance of the person who ran up to me in this way; the person who was running from me, I lost sight of. He was pursued, and taken within two or three minutes; I learned that he was taken, and that my watch was safe. I have had my watch ever since. The watch was delivered to me the next day by the officer; it is worth fifteen pounds. The person I found in custody was the prisoner; he was a stranger to me quite. I was quite sensible of what was going on.</p>

I did not see him before the complaint of being robbed; I first heard he was robbed, about ten minutes before eleven o'clock that night. I saw the prisoner cross upon Mr. Wood; he walked over to him; I was then about ten yards behind them, and expected there was something going forward. The prisoner was alone; I kept my eye on him. A scuffle ensued between the two parties; he caught hold of him, as I suppose. The prisoner, as I suppose, by the collar, and I saw his arm drawn, and I expected he had a watch at the same time; I did not see what it was. Mr. Wood cried thief, several times. Petticoat-lane is partly in the City, and partly in the County. That part were they were was in the County part. I proceeded after the prisoner; I saw his person many times before; I went after him when there was a call of stop thief; I lost sight of him for a short time, but caught it again; he was the only person who ran at the cry of stop thief. I laid hold of him in a turning which leads out of Petticoat lane into Gullstone-street. When I was about two yards behind him, I saw him stoop, and he put the watch down in the corner of a step of a door; it was a moon-light night, and when he had taken his hand from the place,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100008"/>I saw the watch glisson; I perceived it was a watch. I caught hold of him immediately; he asked me what was the matter, and I did not make him any reply, but secured him. I stooped down, and picked up the watch; it was the same watch which was afterwards returned to the prosecutor. I then brought him into Petticoat-lane, and took him to Aldgate watchhouse. The prosecutor came up in three or four minutes. I shewed the watch to the prosecutor, and he owned it to be his, as the watch he had been robbed of.</p>
<p>Joseph Wood. Re-examined. I was very much in liquor, I will allow; I have no knowledge of the man taking hold of my collar. I know there was something of a scuffle, and in that scuffle, I lost my watch.</p>
<p>Q. You admitted that you were the worse for liquor, but said that you knew what was going on. Now have you ever said, at any time, or in any place, that you were seized by the collar - A. No.</p>
<p>Q. Could you be so seized without knowing it at the time - A. It might have taken place without my remembering it; as to being collared, I don't recollect it.</p>
<p>CHARLES HAMBLETON. I am a watchman. Just before eleven o'clock, I was standing against the door; I observed Mr. Wood standing opposite me, with his chain and seals hanging showey out. There was a man stood along side of me; I don't know who he was; be seemed to take greatnotice of Mr. Wood, very much. I then saw Mr. Wood advance towards Whitechapel, on the right hand side. This man rushed into the Black Lion, and then the prisoner came out; the prisoner was not the man who stood by me; I knew him well before; I had seen him very often about the place, As soon as I saw him go forward, I called to Kinley, and said, that gentleman will lose his watch before he goes any farther. I had a light in my lanthorn, a candle was pretty fresh, and the moon shone pretty light. Kinley called me back, and said stop with your light, I will go forward. I did not go forwards enough to see what was done. I heard the cry of stop thief; he was not quite in my sight then; nor was Mr. Wood quite. I stopped momentarily, for I knew which direction they would take. I heard Kinley's rattle spring, and came up directly, and the next I saw of the prisoner was when he had hold of him. The prisoner came out of the Black Lion alone, and crossed the way alone.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I am totally innocent. There was a cry of stop thief, or something of that, and I was running with the others, and there was a man near where the property was found.</p>

While we were sitting in the house, the prisoner at the bar came in; we were in the tap-room at the time we fell out with the prisoner; he forced himself into our company, and we refused him. He wanted to get some beer to drink, and we refused him. We told him to be off, because we would not have any Foreigners among us. He did not go; he would not. He told us that he was an English man, and would not go away. We told him to be off, for we would have nothing to do with him. We ordered him out of the door. Upon that, he refused, and some of the soldiers turned him out; not in a manner to hurt him at all; I can't say Twigg was one; I can't say he was not. He did not say any thing to the prisoner. The prisoner did not come in again; it was ten minutes before I saw him again. Twigg went out; I followed him soon after, almost directly; I saw Twigg and the prisoner close together in the lane; I saw the deceased fall; before that, I did not see any thing done by him. I did not see him strike the prisoner, or any thing of that kind; I am not sure he did not strike him. I was within five yards of them. I saw the figures of two men in short; the soldier was not dressed in scarlet; I was near enough to see one lift his hand to the other, if he had done so; but I did not take any notice. I saw Twigg heel back; on seeing him fall, I jumped up the prisoner, and he made a blow at me. I discovered that the two persons I saw were Twigg and the prisoner. Twigg groaned out when he fell. When I came up, the prisoner struck me; he made a back handed blow at me, and I felled him with my left, and seized him with my right hand. The blow he made at me, cut me; it was such a cut as could not be done without some sharp instrument. I secured the prisoner, and there

I did not see the prisoner there; I had seen him in the course of the day; he has lost one of his arm; it was about four o'clock in the afternoon that I saw him. He had a fork screwed to the stump of his arm, it screws into the top of the arm; I took that from him, because he was breaking the doors open with it, and abusing the people in the lane The deceased was not with me then. The prisoner was in liquor, but not drunk. About half past nine, I and my comrades were in the house. I recollect the deceased going out to buy some tobacco; I saw there was a row just opposite the White Lion soon after, and there I found Twigg laying there; I thought it was from liquor that made him lay there at first; he was twenty or thirty yards above the White Lion. He was laying down; he was wounded, as I discovered afterwards; I directly went up to him; he was laying with his face up, I believe; he was put on my back; he was not able to get up himself to go to any place, and I took him to the Guard-room at the Mint; that was about fifty yards, or more. He said something while he was on my back; but I could not tell what it was, I did not understand him. I laid him down when I brought him to the Guardroom; he continued there until the surgeon came; he was the same man the surgeon saw.</p>

He was wounded a little below the navel; it is my opinion that, that wound was the occasion of his death. It appeared to be done with a sharp instrument; it was three inches deep; a portion of the omentum protruded through the lacerated integuments; it had reached the intestimes, but not to wound them.</p>

I had occasion to go to the privy in the yard to throw some water down, on the Saturday before the Coroner's Inquest was holden; I observed part of a child's leg and thigh under the grating; it must have been put down the hole of the privy; the grating belongs to a drain which communicates with the privy. This was in the morning. When my husband came home, I informed him what I had seen; he went out; and brought in the body of the child; it was a male child. I observed that the navel-string was not tied as it usually is by medical men and nurses after delivery. The body was quite putrid, and must have been dead some time; how long, I could not judge. The people of the next adjoining house use this privy.

The prisoner appeared to be very poorly when I first went; she appeared to be very bad; but nothing as I thought dangerous. She complained of a pain in her bowels, Before that time, I had never been informed that she was pregnant. Upon her complaining of this pain, I went as soon as I thought the apothecary's shops were open, to get some castor oil, but the shops were not open. I did not at that time believe her to be in labour. I was gone about ten minutes, or a quarter of an hour. I found her worse on my return; her sister was sitting on the bed by her, and I sit down by her also, and she seemed very much agitated, and in a great deal of pain. She took hold of my hand, and grased it, and her sister's, and she said, God will help me, and has helped me. Then she said, I am better, for it has come from me; and I said, what come from you, in the consternation I was in; she made answear and said, I don't know mother; but I believe a child. On that account, I looked to see what it was, and on turning down the bed clothes, found it was a male dead child; it appeared like a child that had gone its full time; there were marks of recent delivery on it, and in the bed. When my son-in-law came home, he was very much surprised, and said, what should we do with it; I had put it into a dry chamber-pot, which stood by. My son-in-law said, mother, what shall we do; we must get a box, and bury the child; that was first agreed upon. I said, I did not know what to do; the best way will be to hide the child, and nobody will know any thing about it, to hide the shame of the girl. I don't know whether he saw the body of the child; he did not say what way to hide it. It was taken into the yard; I took it from the room, and carried it to where it was found in the privy; I put it down the privy. As near as I can guess, it was near nine o'clock. My daughter was not told what was done with the child.</p>
<p>JOHN PARTRIDGE. My wife is not able to come out; she was brought to bed last Wednesday was a week. I got up just before five that morning; my wife told me to get up, and go call her mother, as she had heard
<persName id="t18160710-11-person137">Esther</persName> all night; I proposed to them, and told them, that the child ought to be buried in a proper manner; I told them that it would bring disgrace on my own family, and they might do what they liked with it, and throw it down the privy if they liked. I did not see the prisoner after it was born. My mother took it through to the privy while I was at breakfast. I never suspected what was the matter with the prisoner,</p>

On the 1st of June last, I was sitting facing a large looking-glass in the parlour at my dinner, and in that looking-glass I could see a great part of the shop. I happened to look into the glass, and saw a woman in the shop. I went to see what she wanted, and it proved to be the prisoner at the bar; she was about a foot and a half into the shop; she had her face towards me, not as if advancing farther; she stopped, and I asked her what she wanted; she asked the way to Westminster; no other person was in the shop at that time; I told her the way. She left me; I then turned round to go into the parlour again, and perceived a piece of flannel was missing off some wooden steps, which stood about three feet and a half within the shop, quite within. I had seen that flannel when I went into my dinner. On missing it, I went after the prisoner; I overtook her about four doors from our house; I took hold of her arm, and I thought I saw something under her clothes; she had no cloak, and I found this piece of flannel there. I got hold of her, and in leading her back, she said, don't push me, and I told her to deliver up the flannel, and she did so; she gave it me just before we got to our house. I have the flannel here; there are six yards; it cost above eighteen pence a yard; it would sell for a greater price.</p>

The horse was in harness in a cart; I unharnessed him. and we took the collar off, and hung it up in the stable. The prisoner bid me give him a quartern of oats, which I did.

<p>Prisoner's Defence. In the first place, the constable said that pistol was loaded, and it was not; neither are those two balls that are there, mine. Another thing, the ostler says that nobody brought the cart in but me; but the owner of the cart took it out himself. I am a total stranger. The first time I saw this cart was at Battle Bridge, on Tuesday, about the middle of the day; the man was offering it for sale, and I believe the person who was looking at it, would have bought it, only he said, he had another one making. Then after that, the owner went on with his cart. I went to the person who was about buying it, and the man said, if he could get it for fifteen or sixteen pounds, it would be a bargain. The next time I saw it was when the owner was coming from Cambden Town, coming from the New-road to Tottenham-court-road, and I said, hoy; have you sold your cart; and he said, no; and I said, stop, and I will buy it of you if we can agree; and he said, very well, wait a minute or two; and I waited a bit, and he returned again, and we agreed for fifteen pounds, and I paid thirteen pounds down, twelve pounds in notes, and one in silver, and I told him I would give him the rest if he would go up to my cousin's, and he said, very well, and we put the cart in, and then he came back again, and we waited, and then came another person, who lived handy there, and paid him some money, and I thought he well knew him, and he paid him down some money, three or four pounds; I understood that he kept an iron shop, and that he brought it from his own home. When he got to my cousin's, I asked him to take the rest of the money, and he asked me my name, and where I lived, and all that, and I said, I would come and meet him.</p>
<p>- KENTON. I am a sawyer; I live up by Lord's cricket-ground, near Paddington. I know the prisoner; all I know of him is seeing him along with his brother; I know him by sight.</p>
<p>Q. Did you see him any where on the morning of the 19th of June-A. I don't know the day of the month, but I saw him in Tottenham-court-road, Wednesday three weeks, yesterday, it was between six and seven o'clock in the morning, and in Tottenham-court-road. As I was crossing the top of Tottenham-court-road, I saw him looking round a cart; that cart had a horse to it; there was a tall stout man, and the prisoner, with that cart. I heard the prisoner say the cart was not worth so much money; it was fifteen pound that he said was two much; he said the cart was very much out of repair, and would never run long. The other made answer, that sold it, and said, it would run for three months longer with very little repair. Then they walked round it a little bit, and then walked of the road on to the pavement. The prisoner said I have not enough to pay you now, but I will pay you some now, and settle the rest with you in the morning, or something to that purpose. He said, you meet me here at this public-house to-morrow morning, at ten o'clock; there was a public-house not far off, he pointed towards it, and said, I will settle with you, and you will get a stamp for a receipt. I saw the prisoner
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100013"/>pull his money out, it consisted of notes; he said, here is twelve pounds in paper, and here is one pound in silver. I saw the prisoner give that money to the man.</p>
<p>MARY GATES, I am a widow; I live in Thomas's-buildings, Somers Town, at the top of Phoenix-street. The prisoner at the bar has lodged with me; he took my lodging on the 1st of May, Wednesday. He lodged with me until he was taken up; he slept at home the night before he was taken up, and the night before that; he never slept out of his lodging since he has had it; he went to bed at about half past ten on the night of the 17th; he came in about seven, and continued at home from seven until he went to bed, and never went out of doors, and at half past ten he went to bed.</p>

On the evening of the 19th of June, at about half past eight, the prisoner was talking to a lodger of mine at the door, and asked to go into the parlour with him, as he had something particular to say; they went in; and after they had gone about a quarter of an hour, I missed my watch; it was most usually hung over the mantle piece in the parlour; but whether I left it there, or whether in the privy. I don't know. The lodger was a female lodger; she is a distant relation of my wife, and was out of place then; she is in service now. She went into the parlour with the prisoner, and came out first, leaving him. When the prisoner was apprehended, about half past eleven the same night, he acknowledged he had been in my parlour; but denied taking the watch. The outside-case of the watch was found in his waistcoat pocket; the other part in his other pocket.</p>

If I had taken it with any fraudulent intent, I had plenty of time to make away with it; but I forgot entirely that I had it.</p>

On Wednesday evening, the 12th of June, I was up late, I was drinking in the early part of the evening; I was some what in liquor; but was sensible of what I was doing. I went into a coffee-shop about two o'clock in the morning, in the neighbourhood of Clare-market; I had some coffee there; there was a good many people there; they were intirely strangers to me; there have been two of them to my house. The prisoner was in the coffee-shop. We went in together. He accested me first in the street; he had some sort of conversation with me, and seeing this place open, we went in to have some coffee, and we drank it together. I staid there a short time, half or quarter of an hour. I went first out; I had paid for the coffee for both. We sat next to each other. I remember when I paid for the coffee, I took out all my silver to see if I had a sixpence. I went out first; he followed me out, and made up to me almost directly; he came up to me, and gave me a blow on the front of my head, and knocked me against the wall, and thrust his hand into my pocket, and took every farthing in the world that I had, and did not leave me a halfpenny. He stupified me for a moment; but I directly called out, when he ran away; I told the watchman, and every one I met, what had happened. I went back to the coffee-shop, and told the people there; I described the man to them, and somebody in the shop gave me some information where I should be likely to find the prisoner; they asked me if I would go with them to Fleet-market, and they would find him; but I declined going, as I had no hat; and then they told me to stop where I was. While I was there, they went; and one of them then came back, and gave me some information; in consequence of which, I went with him, and saw the prisoner; he saw me, and escaped out of the market; I followed him into Holborn-hill, and there he got into a tobacco shop; I went over to him, and saw my hat on his head. I asked him what he was doing with my hat on his head, and he said, it was not mine; I said, it was. I also asked him where my money was that he took out of my pocket; and he
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100014"/>said, he did not take any out of my pocket. He then shuffled out of the shop, and got away again, with the hat on his head; I ran after him, and overtook him; he ran through the cross courts, and I overtook him in Poppins's-court, Fleet-street; he fell down; when I overtook him; I took hold of his two wrists, and the hat fell off his head, and fell down, and he said, he had none of my property; he said, he would murder me if I did not let him go; and I told him, I was in a good case, and was not afraid of him; and he was in a bad one, and all I wanted, was my own. Some people went and fetched an officer, Mr. Cresswell, the street - keeper of Fleet-street. The hat was laying at the prisoner's feet when the officer came. This was about half past seven, or a little after. I had had some liquor; but I am perfectly sure that he is the person who struck me in the street.</p>

There was a hat laying about three feet from them, and the prosecutor had the prisoner by both wrists. The prosecutor told me what mark I should find in the hat before I took it up; he mentioned three or four particular marks, as if done with a bodkin; I took up the hat, and found those marks in it; I have kept it over since; it was in my own sight the whole time, close to myself; I observed the forehead of the prosecutor, the forehead and nose were very red, as if they had had a blow.</p>

On the 20th of May, I was in company with Block and Pelliam, in Little Britain. Brock came to me in Aldersgate-street; when we three were in company, we went to Augel-alley, Moor-lane; this was between two and three o'clock; we went to a house which had no number. Petham led us to that house; we went up stairs first, and he could not find out the exact room; we then went away, and hid ourselves; and then he came and beckoned us, and we returned, we went up into the two pair, we went into a room where the three prisoners were. I secured them myself; they were setting on their bottoms; they were all three sitting in a row, colouring shillings; they had a piece of mettal rubbing it with white colour; that white colour was on their fingers; each was so employed. I secured the two tallest, and clapped the two handcuffs on them, and told them not to resist. I have got the three that they were colouring; they flung them down.</p>
<p>Q.Which is which - A. I don't know, I am sure that out of the number you now hold in your hand, three of them are what fell from the three men. The rest I picked off the boards; they were laying in front of them. Brock secured the third man. We afterwards searched the room. I found them laying before them, and by the side of them. Amongst them, there was a phial full of aquafortis, and here is one here which has had it in; aquafortis was in that phial. Here are nine uncoloured blanks, and eight shillings wrapped up in Roerdon's waistcoat pocket.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. ADOLPHUS. I have seen the little man, Quinn, at the time of Mr. Duncan's new house being built; as for the other two, I don't know them. They said that a man had gone out with two shillings to buy them some dinner, and after we secured them, they wished us to stay to see if he would come back.</p>

<p>Mr. Powell. Cross-examined by MR. ADOLPHUS. Putting them into the water takes off the action of the solution, which if it were not for the water, always turns them yellow, and the water takes away that discolouring quality.</p>
<p>Q. There is a metalic material imparted to the blanks, and that is confined by the aquafortis; but unless they are afterwards washed with water, they turn yellow - A.Certainly.</p>
<p>Q.Therefore the colour to continue, so as to be issued into the World, ought to be washed in water - A. Yes.</p>
<p>Re-examined by MR. REYNOLDS. The colouring gives it a silver colour; but to fix it, it requires water.</p>

<p>Quinn's Defence. (By interpretation, for he spoke in Irish.) On the morning that I was taken, I left my house, I went to Cheapside Market, where all Irish labourers look for employment as bricklayer's labourers. When we went to the market, we remained there until seven o'clock, and there was a man came up to us, and asked us if we wanted any employment, and of course we said yes; and so we went with that man; he said, he could not send us to work until after nine. We went down to the lodging, and stopped until after nine. I had only a bit of dry bread for my breakfast. After that, the man told us to come to Cripplegate Church, and we waited for the man, and then he told us to go along
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100015"/>with him, and he brought us up in the two pair in Angel-alley; we were there a few minutes before the man shewed us what employment he was going to give us; then he brought a piece of copper, and a large pair of scissors, and a file; he shewed us then what we were to do with these things. When we saw what colour he brought, we did not like to do it. The man said, he would give us our dinner that day; the man is now taken prisoner. I left some of these pieces on the floor. After the man was gone, the officers came in, and hand-cuffed us. I asked the constable to stop a few minutes to see if the man would return; but the man did not.</p>

I cannot speak positively to its state of safety previous to the loss. After this lad was taken up, I had a conversation with him. Messrs. Watson and Chappel sent for me, to inform me that the prisoner was then at their house. I went down there; I found the boy there. In his presence I said, that that ring and the other articles were stolen from my house, and that in consequence of the information given to me, I apprehended that a ring which he had offered at Messrs. Watson's, answered the description of the one that had been stolen. I asked him what he had done with that ring, and he said, he had returned it to his mother. I asked him where his parents lived, and who were his employers; he told me he was in the employ of Mr. Brown, at St. Mary's hill, and that his parents lived in Sloaue-street, Chelsea. Not wishing to cast any doubt on the prisoner's character with his employers, I abstained from going to St. Mary's Hill, and prefered going to Sloaue-street. The prisoner assented to his accompanying me and the pawnbroker's man in a coach to a house in Sloane-street, which on our arrival at it, by his direction, we found to be empty. I sat in the coach with the prisoner, while the pawnbroker's man went to a shop on the other side of the street, to make some inquiries. The result was that the house had been shut for three months. The person of the shop where the inquiry was made, sent his errand boy to ride on the coach-box to the landlord of the empty house, who resided at Brompton, whom I found at home. I asked him if any one could have occasionally slept at the empty house, and he said no one could have acces to it, because the key was in his own possesssion. Finding the boy had told me that falsehood, I determined to have him taken into custody; not knowing whether he should be given into the charge of an officer of the County or of the City, I went to Bow-street, and in consequence of the advice given me by the magistrate, I had the prisoner apprehended by a City officer, and he was taken to Giltspur-street Compter. In his way thither he retracted what he had said with respect to having the ring from his mother, and he said, he had it from one Singleton, who, he stated, lived at the house of Messrs. Finch and Co. in Skinner-street, Snow-hill. No person of the name of Singleton lived there. The prisoner was taken before the Alderman on the next Monday, and Singleton attended, and is here to day.</p>
<p>LEE SINGLETON. I live in Newington, with my father. I know the prisoner at the bar, and have known him about fifteen months; I have known him when my father was unfortunate, and in the King's Beach. I look at that ring; the prisoner never had it from me; nor did I ever see it before I saw it at Guildhall.</p>

<p>Prisoner's Defence. Singleton gave me the ring, and I pledged it for him; I was not aware it was stolen.</p>

I saw him in company with the prisoner about a week before Easter; they came together to my counting house where I was in Castle-court, Biching-lane; I was out when they came at first; they brought two rings; they were only guilt ones; they were cheap articles, and Singleton appeared as the proprietor of them. After that time, I did not see either of them until the 22nd of May, and then I saw the ring in Hawkins's possession. I had no dealing with Singleton.</p>

On the 3rd of June last, which was Whit-Monday, I had a mare, which I had bought at Tilly, and had had two years. She was in my field that evening at nine o'clock. I had seen the prisoner close to the field that night at seven o'clock. The next morning the mare was missing, at about four o'clock. The next time I saw her was in Smithfield, and I knew her very well.</p>
<p>THOMAS WEBB. I am a dealer in horses. I was at Redbourne on Wednesday, the 5th of June; that is about four miles from St. Alban's; I saw the prisoner there, on the mare in question; I will swear to it; I saw him about half a mile on the other side of Redbourne, between Redbourne and Market-street; he was riding towards London; but turned up a lare, I believe on account of seeing me; that laue only leads into fields. I was on horseback myself; I hed no conversation with him; and I saw him again on this side of Barnet. The mare was very much fatigued; it might be two hours before I saw him the second time. The distance from Baruet to Redbourne is about fourteen miles. I had no conversation with him then; he kept on the road to London; he continued going towards London, and I passed him. I saw no more of him that day. I came to London. I was in Smithfield on the morning of Friday; I think soon after two o'clock in the afternoon, I saw the prisoner on the mare; he had got her there for sale; he was riding her about for sale. I am sure the mare I saw him on at Smithfield, was the same I saw him with at Redburne and Barnet. I went and asked the price of her; he asked twenty guineas for her; twenty guineas in the state she was then, was a good price for her. She was very much cut up, and looked as if she had been hard ridden; I agreed to give him twelve pounds for her; and I took him to the toll-book to hare her booked; and I told him he must find a voucher before I could pay him for her, as I was not satisfied she was his property; he went and brought a voucher. He first told me his name was

I saw the mare was about three years old. I found him in various stories. At first he said, he had had it three years, and afterwards he said it was his uncle's. I left the mare at the Ram. Worrall was in the room, and I gave him charge of the prisoner, on account of his various stories. I don't know whether he saw me with the mare.</p>

I staid there until about nine o'clock, and I agreed to this man to bring this horse to Southeol, which is about seven miles off the Fair; he was to bring it on the Tuesday morning, and put it into Mr. Messing's field, which was a friend of mine. The next morning about six o'clock, I took a bridle and saddle to

Then I went to Northampton, and staid there all night, and came to London about eight o'clock the next day, and put her up at Riding-house-lane; and on the Friday following, I went through Smithfield, and this horse-dealer Webb, whom I had seen on the road, asked me to go into a house to have something to drink, and tie my horse up with his, which I did; and I called for some beer, and after that I had some liquors, and ram and water, until I was very much intoxicated, and this horse-dealer pulled out ever so many bank notes, and said, now I have got plenty of money, what would you like for your horse; and another horse-dealer pulled out ten guineas in gold, and I refused it, and I came out, and wanted by horse to go away, and they wanted me to have more liquor, and I said no, I would not have any more, and another said pay my reckoning before you go, and I refused; and the man said, give me the horse; and he tied it up at the Ram; and I was quite intoxicated in liquor, and did not know what I did.</p>

I had been along way to the other end of the Town, to Oxford-street, to see a friend; it was on the 12th of June. I came home very late, between twelve and one; I could not get away before; it was a beautiful moon-light morning. I never saw the prisoner until he came up to me, which was at the top of
<placeName id="t18160710-25-crimeloc112">Cow-lane, Smithfield</placeName>

At the top of Cow-lane, the prisoner came up to me, as I was going along, he came putting his hand on my shoulder, and I told him to go along about his business, and he would not go for some time; and I said, what do you want, what do you mean; if you don't go, I will screem out, and he immediately said hush; he immediately threw me down on the pavement; I don't think he was in liquor; he uatied my clerk at that time; it was tied before that time. I was down; but I could not struggle; I screamed out, and he heard a coach coming, so he ran off. I screamed out, and the coachman jumped off his box a good hit before the coach came up, and the coachman asked me what was the matter. The prisoner took the cloak with him; it was worth very little, it was not worth more than two or three shillings. He was puremed; I left the coachman, and ran after the prisoner, to see if I could find him; the prisoner had got out of sight. I went down as far as Snow-hill, and there saw him. I went down Hoster-lane, and saw him at the bottom of Snow-hill; I am positive he was the same man. I then gave the alarm; I saw him talking to three women, and I went up to him; I did not see my cloak. I charged him with the cloak, and asked him what he had done with it; and he said, he had got no cloak. I have neverseen it since. Then two of the three women went away directly, as fast as they could get away. I am very positive and confident that the prisoner is the man; he went a little way, and I said, if you do not give me my cloak, I will charge the watch with you; and then he walked on a little bit, and then ran away again; but he was secured that night.</p>
<p>PATRICK CARNEY. I am a watchman, and apprehended the prisoner. The coachman the last witness spoke of, is not here. I took the prisoner at the foot of Holborn-bridge, in Swan-yard; there was a crowd there, and when I went by, I heard of the robbery, and followed the prisoner, and when I was following him, he ran across Snow-hill into Cock lane; he might have heard the charge. I sprang my rattle after him up Cock-lane, and he was not stopped there; but ran up one Mr. Munn's yard, up Cock-lane; I and the City patrole went into the yard, and secured him; he said nothing.</p>
<p>-HORTON. I am a City patrole. I assisted the last witness in securing the prisoner at the bar. The charge was for robbing the woman. He was on his all fours in Mr. Munn's yards. I secured him. I then brought him to the watchhouse; I went back and saw the woman in the watchhouse, where there were ten or eleven people, and she pointed out the prisoner directly.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My Lords and Gentlemen, I hope you will take into consideration my doleful situation, to be confined in a prison under irons for what I am not guilty of; I have been at work these twelve weeks past with Mr. Hemmings, who, if called upon, can give me a good character. On leaving my work on Tuesday evening, I proceeded to my lodging at Mr. Fitzeraid's, near John-street; but having a few words with him. I resolved to take lodgings else where, and for that purpose I went out of his house at twelve o'clock at night. Wherefore meeting with this woman, whom, to the best of my knowledge, I never saw before, she accused me of knocking her down, and taking her handkerchief from her some time before. Now, my lords and gentlemen of the jury, I hope you will take these few lines into consideration, as being in a strange Country, destitute of friends to speak for me, and I have no more to add.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100018"/>I found the poney there; how it had been brought there, I don't know. This was on a Monday; I am sure the poney I saw there, was mine.</p>

<persName id="t18160710-26-person229">THOMAS</persName> M'GHIE ESQ. I am the brother of the last witness. I know this poney. I know where it was at grass; I saw it at grass on Sunday, the 16th, about three o'clock in the afternoon. I saw it on the Monday morning following, about half past nine, or a quarter before ten; I saw it at the White Horse livery stables, in the City-road, when I rode into Town. While I remained there, the prisoner at the bar came for the poney; the hostler said something to me. I then spoke to the prisoner; I asked him where he got the poney he rode on that morning; that was just at the stable door. I pointed to the poney; he must know what poney I meant; he then said, he bought it on the Hampstead-road. I asked him of whom; and he said, of a butcher. I said it was my brother's poney. I think he said he bought it that morning at half past five, or half past six. After we stood a short time, he offered to give it up, on condition of my giving him the bridle and saddle; I did not do that. We stood talking to the hostler; and then he said, he would fetch the butcher. I told him he had better stay until my brother came, because he knew more about it. He said, the butcher was a fat man, with a green coat; he did not know his name. I think that was what he said. I am sure he said, he did not know his name. I asked him how he came to buy a poney of a man he did not know; and he said, he bought it, cheap, and gave six guineas and a half for it. I asked him to stay until my brother came. When my brother came, he said, he would hang him; then my brother sent for an officer; he said, he would pay any man who would go for an officer; he said that aloud in the yard. Great numbers of persons were assembled in the yard at this time. I beeckoned the prisoner to go, as the people said let the poor fellow go. I did not wish him to be hanged. He went before the officer came; I did not see him go; in the crowd he went away.</p>

I look at the prisoner at the bar; he brought the poney in question, himself, at about half past six o'clock; I had seen him twice before; he ordered a quartern of corn, and two pennyworth of beaus for the poney, as another person would do; he went awayin about a quarter of an hour afterwards. I never saw the poney before. I was there when he came back. The younger Mr. M'Ghie rode in about half past nine. When the prisoner first came in, I said, you have a pretty poney there; he said, yes, what do you think I gave for it; I said, I don't know. In the result he told me he gave ten pounds ten shillings for sandle bridle and all. I should think it was worth that. I had seen him twice in the week previous; he was in the Star public-house.</p>
<p>JOHN-. I am hostler. I was not at the stables when the prisoner was taken. A person came into the yard, and said, a person wanted to see me. I went, and took the officer with me to the Angel in Tabernacle-walk, about an hundred yards across the way. I asked the landlord if any one wanted me, and I saw the prisoner outside the house in the street; he was going to speak to me, and then I told the officer he was the man, and he apprehended him.</p>
<p>BERNARD GLEED. I am the officer that took the prisoner into custody. I asked him where he bought the poney. I told him what I took him for, on suspicion of stealing Mr. M'Ghie's poney. I asked him where he bought it; and he said, by Primrose-hill, of a butcher; he said, he gave six pounds ten shillings in the whole for it. I asked him if he had any receipt to shew for it; and he said, none I asked him if he knew the man he bought it of; and he said, no. I searched him, and in his waistcoat he had a few halfpence, and in his coat pocket I found a pair of spurs.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. I was going home, and I let of this man, and asked him what time the Yorkshire coach would come; and he said, he did not know any particular time. He was walking before me; and he said, are you going down to Yorkshire; and I yes; and he said. I had better ride the poney down, and I paid him six pounds ten shillings for it; there were plenty of people passing, and I paid him the six pounds ten shillings, and he did not tell me where he lived, and I did not inquire. I brought it to the White Horse, and put it up, and I remained there a little time, and the gentleman was there, and he said this is my poney, and he sent for his brother, and he came. The young gentleman told me to go away, and I went away, and when I came back, I was taken.</p>

When I came down stairs, I found the doors were open; the street door and the bar door locks had been picked, and the lock of one of the tills was picked; the other till was not locked. I found no instruments. I missed three table-spoon, and four tea-spoons; two were marked J S B; one spoon was an old one, with a crest to it; that was some sort of a bird. I also lost one teaspoon marked J B three others marked J S A, they are mine, and the sugar tongs were marked J A B, and were belonging to my wife's first husband. I missed the money out of both tills; there was a great quantity of halfpence and farthings to the amount of nine or ten shillings. I saw these things the night before, before I went to bed. It was past two o'clock before I went to bed that morning, and I left these things in the cupboard in the bar. There was a silver mounted reading glass in the till, which was gone, and a patent cork-screw. I found a handkerchief, and a great number of things tied up in it, in the passage; among the things in that handkerchief, were two pieces of cheese, a piece of bacon, four pounds of currants, two pounds of tea, a shirt, and a waistcoat, and about a dozen pair of shoes, which were old, and brought down stairs to be repaired. There is a mark T C on the handkerchief. The prisoner had lodged in my house nearly a year and a half; he always went by the name of

<interp inst="t18160710-40-person305" type="surname" value="Culliver"/>

<interp inst="t18160710-40-person305" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> ; he lodged at the top of the house. The shirt, waistcoat, and shoes are not here. In consequence of this, I took the bundle into the bar, and also the two bottles; there were about two pound of tea tied up in a silk handkerchief, and some tobacco twisted up in an old newspaper. When I took this back, I found the mark on the handkerchief, and I suspected by the T C that it was the prisoner's handkerchief, and I took a constable, and took the prisoner in the City.</p>
<p>EDWARD BARNES. I am pot-boy to the prosecutor. When I awaked on the morning in question, in was about five o'clock; when I got to the bottom of the stairs, I heard a noise, and when I came into the passage a man struck me there; I saw his arm; but not his face. I heard the voice. He asked who I was; I could see the back of another man. I am sure there were two men; it was morning light, it was day light. I could not see who they were; I did not know the voice of the man; I don't think I ever heard it before. I had lived at the prosecutor's house about twelve months. I well know the prisoner's voice; I am sure he was not the man who struck me. I went up stairs, and called my master. When I came back, they were gone. I was not many minutes up stairs, as soon as we could get some young men up, we came out directly. There were people in the house when I went to bed the night before.</p>
<p>ELIZABETH ORCHIN. I am a washer-woman. I have washed for the prisoner. The handkerchief was brought to me to know if I knew it; and I said yes. They asked me what mark it had on it, and I knew it by the letter T; it was marked with T C; but I had always noticed the letter T, because it was marked so crookedly and badly. On the Sunday he had fetched away a shirt, a waistcoat, a pair of gaiters, and this handkerchief; I knew that to be it, because he had five handkerchiefs, and I had three of them, and he took away this one; I had had it three weeks. This was the smallest handkerchief he had belonging to him.</p>
<p>Q. Are you positive sure that is the handkerchief he took away-A. Yes, from that T, and if it was not for that, I should not know it.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. The handkerchief was never mine; I never had a small white pocket handkerchief. I lodged with the prosecutor a year and a half, and I should wish to know if he knew any thing of
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181607100022"/>my character. I would wish to ask the lad whether he knew any harm by me all the time he was there?</p>
<p>Richard Gale. I never heard any thing amiss of him.</p>

<interp inst="t18160710-41-person316" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . On Saturday, the 25th, I missed some linen, between four and half past five o'clock, from the house-keeper's room; that faces the street, there is an area before it, and it is on the basement floor; there are steps down to the area; the gate of the area is never locked in the day time. I left the house-keeper's room at four o'clock, and the window was shut down; the door was not locked. I then went into the kitchen, and retured at half past five; when I returned again the window was open, and the iron bar was wrenched; it was an upright bar; there was a broom in the room within side the window, on the ironing-board; the handle of it was lodged on the ledge of the window; I knew the broom; it had been in the outer cellar for sweeping the coals up. All the family were in the house at this time; there were two men servants and two maid servants, besides myself. My young mistress was in the house; I am certain Miss Winter was at home, because I immediately went up stairs, and told her; she had not been out all the afternoon; I had not seen her in the house during that time from four to half past five; I had seen her about four o'clock, when I came out of the house-keeper's room; she was not ill, and there was nothing to prevent her from going out. Persons of the family might go into the house-keeper's room while I was in the kitchen, without my knowing it. This bar was wrenched from the screws which fastened it to the wood; the bars were so close together that the broom would not have gone between them. I missed all the articles named in the indictment; they had been placed in such a situation that a person with the broom might reach them out at the window. I saw some of them again; I saw the two gowns on the Monday following, at Marlborough-street.</p>

As I was reckoning the money, the last witness came in, he saw those gowns, and claimed them. M'Laren was detained by me while Phillips went for an officer.</p>

<p>M'Laren's Defence. I came by the property by coming into Mrs. Riley's house; I had a pint or two of beer, and sat down until about five or six o'clock, when Donnelly coming in picking up a bag in the door-way; he and I examined it, and it had the two gowns in it, which I went to pledge. I told the constable that if he would go with me to Mrs. Riley's he would find what I said was true.</p>
<p>Donnelly was not put on his Defence.</p>
<p>CORNELIOUS CROSSBY. I was in the house when two lads came in with a bag; they asked me to go into the yard with them, and they pulled the gowns out of the bag, and shewed them to me, and wanted me to buy them; I did not like to buy them, and they put them into the bag again, and they threw the bag into Mrs. Riley's bar.</p>
