After that, I was employed by Mr. Westwood, the clerk to the Solicitor of the Bank of England, to detect the prisoners in selling forged notes. By his desire, I introduced a person to the prisoners. Before I introduced that person, I had dealings with the prisoners respecting forged bank notes several times. I obtained some from them at the price ten shillings and sixpence of the prisoner, and the old sixpence was allowed to them. I paid them ten shillings and sixpence for a one-pound to ged Bank of England note; I understood that they had the sixpence for themselves for their trouble. Between the time that I was apprehended and the time. I introduced a person by Mr. Westwood's desire, I dealt with them five times and get from the nineteen notes.

When Andrew Savage had received the money, both prisoners went out together; they said, they should not be long; it was not exceeding three quarters of an hour before they returned; but how much less, I can't say.</p>

<p>Q. Before you went to your appointment, did you meet any persons - A. Yes; I met with Griffiths, and was searched in the investigator's office in the Bank of England, by Mr. Foy, and his brother, in the presence of Mr.Christmas and Mr. Griffiths, and I was supplied with money for the purpose of purchasing notes to the amount of three pounds three shillings in silver, and Griffiths was supplied with one pound one shilling.

<p>Q. Was any thing said about the former evening - A. Yes; Benjamin said to me and Griffiths, it is a pity you did not stop a little longer last night, as Tom ran home and came back with them. I considered Tom to be the man who served them with them. Then they both went out. Andrew Savage came back first. In a very short time, Benjamin came in. Then Benjamin gave me my six and be gave Griffiths his two. When I had received them, I put them into my right hand waistcoat pocket; as soon as we came out of the house, I delivered mine to

<p>THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. My Lord, we are now coming to the subject of the present indictment.</p>
<p>Q. Now, before you went to this meeting, were you again searched - A. I was; I can't tell by whom but Mr. Christmas was present. I was furnished with a one-pound Bank of England note, and one-pound two in silver; Griffiths was furnished with a one-pound Bank of England note, and one shilling, and then we went to the Fountain in the Minories, as we had appointed on the Saturday night; as we had not come on the Sunday to Coleman-street. Accordingly Griffiths, and I went to the Fountain, at twelve o'clock at noon; I believe Mr. Christmas followed us, and if I am not mistaken, one of the Mr. Foys, but I am not certain which, if either. We went there at twelve o'clock and stopped there until about three minutes after one; then we went away from there; neither of the prisoners were there when we went, nor did either of them come while we stopped. We then went to the Old Rum Puncheon, in the Minories, commonly called the Gully Hole, in Rose and Crown-court; it is generally called so, but I believe it was the Rum Puncheon. When we went there. neither of the prisoners were there; but we stopped a little while, and then they both came in. When they came in, we told them where we had been, and one of them, but I can't say which but both were present, said, there could be nothing, done until about eight o'clock at night. A little after seven, I, Griffiths, Andrew Savage, and

Then I saw Griffiths deliver him his one pound note and his shilling.</p>
<p>Q. To which - A. To Andrew. When Andrew received the money of us both, he said to Benjamin, then take them somewhere where you know, and he took us to the Coach and Horses in Northumberland-alley, Fenchurch-street. I can't say rightly how long we staid there, but I think it was an hour before Andrew returned, and when he returned he said, my darling boys, you are enjoying yourselves. Then he gave me my four notes, and I put them into my right hand waistcoat pocket. I then saw him give Griffiths two, but they were not separated, and there might be only one; there were two I believe. Griffiths put them into his left hand pantaloon pocket I believe. We stood there a little while together, and then we all four came out and another man with us. As soon as I got to the door, I gave my four notes to

We then sat down and called for some beer, and drank together.</p>

I gave him my money to give to Andrew Savage, to purchase two forged one pound Bank notes; I had one pound, and a shilling, which I had received of Mr. Westwood.

Then I saw Charles give him three pounds three shillings in silver; three shilling pieces and eighteen penny pieces. Benjamin Savage then took off his hat, and took out a white handkerchief which he had in his hat, and wrapped the money up in the handkerchief in separate parcels; then he went away. In about a quarter of an hour he returned, and said,</p>

<p>Q. Now you went there and saw Andrew Savage. Now what passed - A. A short time afterwards. Benjamin came in, and he said,</p>

Benjamin then sat down by me; he asked me how many I wanted; I told him two; and then John Charles told me to give him my money; I gave him the one pound note and a shilling, which I had received from Mr. Christmas. I saw Charles give him his money; I believe three pounds. Then Benjamin went out, and he was gone about half an hour. and then came back. He sat down with me; he gave me two one pound forged bank notes, and I saw him give Charles his. He gave him six; I put the notes which I had got from him into my left hand pantaloon pocket; and I saw Charles put his into his right hand waistcoat pocket. In a few minutes we all came out together. Benjamin Savage told us, if we wanted any more on the Sunday, to meet him at the White Swan public-house, in Colman-street, at twelve o'clock. Then we drank together; we went into Aldgate together, and into a public-house opposite Aldgate Church; soon after we parted; we had half a pint of gin at that house, and then parted. Charles and I came away together. Charles gave me six forged one pound notes. He gave them to me about five minutes after we came out of the Fountain; he had not been out of my sight from the time he received them, until he gave them to me. He had not been out of my sight from the time he left the Bank of England, until those notes were first in his possession. He had been searched before he went away; he was searched by Mr. Foy, in my presence. The six notes I received from Charles, I put into my right hand pantaloon pocket, and went then to the Grave Maurice, and met Mr. Foy and Mr. Christmas there, and gave the six notes I received from Charles, and my own two, to Mr.

We were to meet again on the 2nd of September; we were to meet on the Monday at the Fountain; that was agreed if we did not meet on the Saturday; we were to meet at nine o'clock on the Monday morning at the Fountain; Charles and I went. I had a one pound note and a shilling, and three or four shilling in silver. I had that money from Mr. Christmas. Some money was given to Charles also, in my presence; I believe a one pound note and one pound two in silver; I saw he was searched first. We went from there to the Fountain; we got there between nine and ten o'clock;

Then we stopped there with them all day; and then the two Savages, Charles, and I went to Aldgate, close to the church, where Andrew Savage asked me how many I wanted; I told him two; and I saw Charles give

The first question he asked me, after we had asked each other how we did was whether my friend was handy, that is near at hand, I said yes, he was at no great distance; because he said I have brought you forty; I had had a conversation with him before about a friend. After he had said this, I said I was not prepared for forty then, as I thought proper not to bring my friend with me; I said I would take twenty to night and twenty in the morning; and I asked him if that would do, and he said it would. Now you give me thing meaning the money; I gave him two pound in silver, and eight one pound notes.

The prisoner joined company with Charles by the wall of Whitechapel Church; I did not see what became of the woman; Jefferey's was following the prisoner, and Charles and John Foy, and myself were close behind. They crossed over into Brick-lane together, talking all the time. They stopped at the window of a cookshop in Brick-lane, and I saw the prisoner give Charles something at the window. They then went on, and as they crossed to the wall of Spital Fields Church, they both stooped down and sounded something. I heard that; they then proceeded down Church-street, towards Bishopsgate; they stopped at nearly the end of-street, to speak together. Foy and myself crossed immediately; the prisoner was taken into custody by Foy and Jeffrey's, and I took Charles. We then went to a house in Bishopsgate-street, near Norton Falgate. They were taken in, and the prisoner was searched. He was first asked by Foy, who, and what he was, and what he was doing with Charles; he denied all knowledge of him, and said he never saw him before. There were found on his person, a small pocket book, twelve shillings and sixpence in silver, and a small key. In fact, there were three keys; one was of a street door; Foy then searched Charles, and on searching him, he found this roll of paper in his pocket, and I saw it found on him. Charles was asked where he got them from; and he said from the prisoner. He was asked for what purpose, and he said he had bought them. Foy again asked the prisoner two or three several times, where he lived; who he was; what he was; and what he had been doing with Charles. He refused to give any account of himself whatever, and still persisted in denying all knowledge of Charles. Upon Charles saying that the prisoner gave them to him, I saw the notes taken from Charles; I marked them; they are all forgeries, and I have the same observations to make with respect to them, that I made with respect to the others.</p>

On Charles I found a paper, which on opening, contained twenty forged notes; they were on a small roll, and tied up in the paper. I asked him where he got it, and he said, "from that man," pointing to the prisoner. I asked him for what purpose, and he said he bought them. The prisoner did not then say any thing to it; but I asked him where he got them from; and he said he knew nothing about them; I asked him what he knew of this man, meaning Charles; and he said he never saw him before. I said, you must know him; and he said, "no, he did not, for he had never spoken to him in his life. I said, that can't be, for you were speaking to him when I took you into custody, this moment. He said," he was not." I said, what is your name, and where do you live. He said, "he should not give an account of himself." I said, you must; that my name was Foy, and that I was a police officer, and he was suspected to be a seller of forged notes, and if he did not say who he was, I should state that in my evidence against him.</p>

<p>Q. was any appointment then made to meet on the following day - A. yes; I was to meet her at nine o'clock the next evening the twenty third; she told me that we were to meet at the Three Tunns; I told her I did not know the Three Tuns she described the way to me; she said if you come up to the top of the street by the Jews chappel, and turn to your right hand, the first public house you come to is the Three Tunns she described to me the place where we were to meet; that was the place I was to meet her at</p>
<p>Q. what were you to meet for - A. I had told her on the twenty second, that I wanted twenty; she answerd that I was to tell her exactly how many I wanted, and she would not bring any more with her than I could take. I told her that I could not be-sure I could take more or not; but I would engage to take twenty.</p>
<p>Q. When you talked of taking twenty, what were you speaking of - A. I was meaning forged notes; we were two well acpuainted with that commodity to mistake each other; we generally talked of them as the thing, or screens, or queer thing. The Three Tunns was the place that I went to, but I found that the house that was the first was on my right, and I went on to White Chapel.</p>
<p>Q. Did you communicate the appointment you had made to any one - A. Yes, to Mr. Christmas, and the peace officers. In consequence of that, I was searched on the Monday, the 23rd, by Mr. John Foy, first, and I believe Mr.

Then I went to the Seven stars in Brick-lane.</p>
<p>Q. Did any of the person who had attended the search go with you - A. Yes; Jefferies went part of the way in company with me; when we got near the place, he drew a little behind, and let me go in first the other followed me I believe at a distance. When I went into the house, I called for a pint of beer; the prisoner came in afterwards; it might be within half an hour, or a little more; she asked me how I did; I said the same to her. Then she made an apology for making the mistake in saying it was the Three Tuns, as she afterwards found out it was the Seven Stars; after that, she asked me to walk a little way; I said most certainly, and we came out to the door; she stopped at the door half a minute, or near, I dare say; there was nothing passed there in particular. We walked from there up Brick-lane; there was no other in company with us two. We walked to the corner of Old Montague-street; in our walk there, we made an appointment to meet on Thursday; the 23rd was a Monday. When we got to the corner of Old Montague-street, we made a stop, but for what, I can't say, it was for nothing in particular. We then went down

When we stopped, she said, is the thing all ready; I said yes; I then gave her seven one-pound Bank of England notes; this was in the street near the Cock and Key. I gave her the notes, and three pounds in silver, the same which I received from Mr. Foy. When she received the money, she said, you devil, why did you not wrap the silver up in the notes; I believe the most part of the silver was in tokens; I then gave her the silver, and she said, she would not be a minute before she returned; she went away; she was not longer than five minutes away, before she returned. When she came back, she gave me the roll of paper, and said, on Thursday night remember. I then put the bundle, or roll, which I suspected to be forged notes into my pocket. She was then going to bid me good night, and I called her then by her name, Mrs. Lawrence; that was the name by which I knew her; I said, won't you go and have something to drink before we part. We went into a public-house, the sign of the Cock and Key; we staid there no longer than while the landlord served us two glasses of gin; I paid for them, and received the change out of a shilling. We did not go above a dozen steps, before we were apprehended; it was before we had got out of the court where the Cock and Key is situated. I made a sign to the officers, to shew them that the dealing had taken place; I dare say I gave them words. Then we were apprehended, both I and the prisoner; that was the third time I was apprehended; I was only apprehended once on a real charge against myself. The officers took me and the prisoner into a house; Christmas and Jefferies took the prisoners; Jefferies also put his arm into my arm, and I made no resistance. They then took us to a house; the prisoner called out murder and robbery, and for assistance when she was apprehended. We were then taken to No. 8, King's Arms Court, kept by a person named Wilson. When we got into the house, Mr. Christmas searched the prisoner. Jefferies also searched her; they did not find anything particular on her; they found some shillings I believe. Mr. Christmas and Jefferies were standing by when I was searched; a roll of paper was found on me, Mr. Christmas took charge of them; he took it out of my pocket, that was the same I

I still continued to watch and observe them. They were together half an hour, or better; during the whole of that time, they appeared to be intimate and familiar together. Previous to the 23rd of September, I saw Charles; he made a communication to me. In consequence of that, Charles was searched; I saw him searched, it was at his lodgings;

<p>Q. I will ask you was it possible that he could have about him any roll of forged bank notes - A. It was impossible for him to have any thing about him without its being known. I then gave him two shillings to spend;

<p>Q. For what purpose was that given him - A. To purchase twenty forged one-pound notes. We then proceeded to the house where the appointment had been made, the Seven Stars, in Brick-lane; the witness Charles and Jefferies went together; I followed, and the two Foys with me. Charles and Jefferies went in there; I waited close at the door, and the two Foys were near to the place where I was. I waited there for about a quarter of an hour, or rather more, when the prisoner came in company with two men to the door.</p>
<p>Q. What time was this - A. This was after nine o'clock at night. I looked into the public-house; but I could not observe the parties. The man who went in with the prisoner came out in a few minutes afterwards; he came out, and came down Brick-lane. About ten minutes afterwards, the prisoner and Charles came out together; they just stopped at the door, and then went in; Jefferies came out immediately after them. The prisoner and Charles passed me. I heard the prisoner say to Charles, no, my dear, indeed I have not heard of him. They crossed the road, and went on. I was on the opposite side to them all the way. That street won't admit of more than two carriages abreast. They went to Old Montague-street, and Jefferies was following me close behind. They stopped there about a minute, and then went along Old Montague-street; Jefferies and I followed them; we were within three or four yards of them all the way through that street. and they stopped nearly opposite to the Cock and Key public-house, just beyond. The prisoner then left Charles, and went into King's Arms-court, just opposite. I went up to Charles, and spoke to him. I went a short distance, and she came back after a minute or so. Then they crossed over, and went into the Cock and Key; I saw them talking together in the passage of that house. They then came out, and were about parting; I then went over to Charles, and asked him if he had made a purchase, and he said yes. Then the prisoner was endeavouring to get away, when I went up to her; she was going away; she did not apprehend anything at that time as I know of. I went up to her, and took her into custody; I laid hold of her hand; Jefferys at the same time laid hold of Charles. The prisoner called out thieves! and murder! I did not treat her with any violence, only by holding her hand; she called that out several times, and several persons in the court opened their doors; and the prisoner said these men want to rob and murder me. I made a request of one of the persons, and in short, we want into No. 8, Mr. Wilson's, and the prisoner was searched there, and on her were found, fourteen shillings and sixpence in silver, and a small key. I asked her her name, but she refused to give her name; Charles at the same time was present; Jefferies at the same time had hold of him; she refused giving any name or saying where she lived. I then searched Charles; I found in his left hand small clothes pocket twenty one-pound forged notes, they were rolled up in a roll; they were not tied, but were rolled tight up, and there was just a small bit of thread twisted round them I then asked the prisoner her name, a second time; she said her name was Woodman. I also asked her where she lived, and she said, she would not say, as it might disgrace her family. Upon finding these notes on Charles, I asked him where he got them; he said, from that person, pointing to the prisoner. I asked him for what purpose. She denied all knowledge of him; she said she never saw him before; she said she did not know who he was, nor what he was. I asked him for what purpose he had them from her; he said, he bought them from her, and gave her ten pounds for them; in fact, he said, I gave ten pounds for them to that person; she made no reply.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181610300010"/>Q. Now I would ask you from the time at which you saw Charles at his lodgings, was there a possibility of his receiving the notes from any other person than the prisoner - A. No, he was not out of my sight, only while he was in the Seven Stars.</p>
<p>Q. From the time of their coming out, until the woman was apprehended, was there any possibility of his receiving them from any one else - A. No. I marked those notes that I took from Charles; I marked them that evening. I look at them; they are all forged, in the paper, and in the hand-writing; and they are forged in every respect; they import to be the signatures of the different persons who are signing clerks; but they are not the hand-writing of those persons; they are all of one stamp.</p>

I was not present when they were apprehended; I lost them for a short time, but got to them again in Whitechapel-road, and the prisoner was then in custody. I searched the prisoner; I told the prisoner she was charged with having sold forged notes. I asked her her name; she said her name was Woodman. So I asked her who the man was she had been drinking with, and she said he was a man she had known about twelve months, and had occasionally called to see her. I asked her whether she met him by appointment or accident that evening, and she said by accident. I asked her how long it was since she had seen him before that evening; and she said some weeks, more than a month. I had seen them in company together on the 18th, in Moorfields. I asked her where she lived, and she would not tell. I had seen her on the 15th and 18th in company with Charles. I had furnished him with ten pounds, seven pounds in notes and three pounds in silver.</p>

Cameron; I paid it in three tens, four fives, and ten ones; I took the numbers of the fives, and one of those numbers correspond with the number of the note produced, No. 12413, dated March 13th; I think there can be no doubt that this is one of the five-pound notes paid in payment of Mr. Cameron's check.

My son was sitting in the same direction, and said something, and I immediately pursued. I followed him myself; I saw him, and my son said there is a man stealing boots. I saw him take the boots; he went out with them; I pursued him immediately after; I lost sight of him in the pursuit for about a

I know them by the number and name that is within them; together they are worth considerably more than thirty shillings; I should have lost two pairs of boots in point of value; it would render both pairs useless.

After securing him, I brought him back to the shop; while in the shop, a person brought a shoe in, which he picked up in the street; his name is Meridith, and he asked me if it was my property; I said it was. We then, it being near the hour of nine, detained him in the shop until the watch came; then I delivered him up to the watchman. I am sure the panes were not broken before. At the time I took the prisoner, his hands were bleeding very much I believe both of them, but one I am positive of.

There was no stage erected; they fought on the ground; there were a great many spectators on the ground. They fought an hour and twenty minutes; each had his seconds to see fair play. I saw the whole of the fight; it ended in Curtis's being quite exhausted. He lay on the ground; in the conclusion of the fight, he was thrown; in that throwing there was nothing that was unfair. Curtis would have continued fighting longer, had it not been for his seconds, who brought him away.</p>
<p>Q. Did you observe the prisoner take any unfair advantage - A. No; I observed very much like forbearance towards the latter end of the fight on his part. When Curtis was very much beaten, about ten minutes before the conclusion of the fight the prisoner for bore very much. While Curtis was lying on the ropes, the prisoner several times could have struck him violent blows, but he held up his hands, and left him as he was; he held up his hands to the public, to see that he would not take any advantage.</p>
<p>Q. Was there any thing in Turner's conduct, which marked a cruelty of temper - A. By no means, very much the reverse; I was present when Curtis was taken off the field; he was carried to the Red Lion, at Hampton. I was with him until he died. I knew the man by sight very well; I was not present when the doctor was there. I found him in bed when I went over. I omitted telling one thing; that in the third round, before the battle finished, having a knowledge of Curtis; I went to him, and begged of him to leave off fighting. He told me there was nothing the matter with him, and he could win the fight then. The men that were seconding him, took him in their arms and carried him between the ropes, and set him on his legs; he then ran into the ring again and began fighting. His seconds had meant that he should not fight any longer; but he got under the ropes again, and would fight again, and then it ended in three rounds afterwards.</p>
<p>MR. GRIFFIN. I am a surgeon, of Hampton. I was called into the Red Lion, at Hampton, to see this young man, between seven and eight in the evening, of the 22nd of October. I did see him; he was in bed when I came; I examined his body; his head was very much swollen, so that you could scarcely distinguish a feature; there were several bruizes on his body; but none that I should conceive would be mortal. I attended him for about twenty minutes. Upon my first seeing him, I apprehended serious danger; he was perfectly in a state of insensibility; he had not the power of speech, nor the act of swallowing. I learn that he died about four hours after I
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181610300012"/>saw him; I was not present when he died. I recommended that he should have some leeches; but without much hope. I certainly thought he would die. I did not open his body; I was not surprised at his death; I conceived his death arose from the bruizes undoubtedly.</p>
<p>Prisoner's Defence. My Lord and Gentleman of the jury, deeply impressed with the great peril to which I am exposed, under the present heavy charge against me, and with the great difficulty I necessarily experience in substantiating my innocence. Owing to the great danger to which the most computent witnesses of the transaction would be exposed, were they to be examined. I must request your most serious attention to such facts as I shall be enabled to lay before you, by which I trust not only my natural disposition will appear, but that, on this occasion of the present sad catastrophe imputed to me, I was goaded into a consent to fight the deceased,[ who was a prize fighter] and with the greatest reluctance I entered the ring, after having been assaulted and abused with the most unremitting virulence; and when I did so, as soon as I ascertained my superiority over my antagonist, I forbore on very many occasions to avail myself of such advantages as presented themselves, and with the greatest reluctance I continued the combat, until the unfortunate event which I must ever deplore and lament, and which has placed me in my awful situation; and I must beg to state that my pursuits in life are honest, and my aversion to prize fighting great, never having before fought a pitched battle, nor should I on this occasion, but from the great aggrivation, which it will be proved I received. I assure your Lordship, and the Gentlemen of the jury, that I am wholly innocent of any intention to seriously injure the deceased, and that there never existed in my mind the smallest particle of malice towards him; I trust my character for humanity and forbearance on this accasion, will have its due weight.</p>

I was a servant out of employ, and I had been for a place, and the gentleman asked me where I lived, and I told him; and he told me to call in about three days, and I went to know whether the character would answer, and he told me it would; and I said I would come on the Monday morning, but he said Monday night would do; and I then went and bought a two-penny loaf, and then I went up to the pump, and was going to drink, and the prosecutor and the watchman came up, and the prosecutor seized hold of me, and asked me if I was not in George-street, and I said no; and then he said take him, to the watchman, and I said I would let him know what right he had to be pulling me about; and with that he caught hold of me again and then two watchmen came up, and then the two watchmen and I went to the watchhouse; I had nothing to care for, for I will take an oath, I was not in George-street.</p>

I met a butcher that I knew perfectly well, and he asked me if I had any thing to do, and I was telling him that I had not, and he asked me if I could kill a heiffer for him, and I told him I could not give him a positive answer then, but I would go to Mr. Stent and ask him if he would let me kill it in his slaughter-house, and I met the young man, and asked him, and he told me that it was half-a-crown for killing it there; and I went to the butcher, and told him that I had seen Mr. Stent's young man, and he said it was half-a-crown for killing it there; he said very well, that would do, and he gave me a glass of liquor; he told me he had twenty-five altogether, and I should have the killing of them all. He then left me, and I went to Mr. Stent, and he told me I might go to his place, and kill it directly, then Mr. Stent's boy came, and helped me to drive her in, and tie her up in the slaughter-house, and then I came back and killed her, and when I came to take her to market, I was taken into custody.</p>

Mr. Greenfield had told me that he was his brother; the way he came to sleep there was; that he had a long way to go home, and he should be glad of a bed. He slept in the attic story; I slept in the next room; I put my watch under my head when I went to bed. I rose the next morning, at half past seven o'clock; I looked at my watch to see what time it was, and I put it back under the bolster. The prisoner had no opportunity of seeing it there. The watch was concealed under the bolster, but the seal, key, and ribbon were not; any person coming into the room might see them; then I got up, I went down stairs, and I did not see the prisoner until a quarter past eight o'clock. when I was sweeping the drawing-room stairs. He said he thought it was very late; he went out of the house without his hat, and I went up stairs afterwards, is consequence of the manner in which he went out. I went up stairs in search of my watch, and it was gone. I am sure I had seen it at half past seven o'clock. The prisoner had not been in my room to my knowledge.</p>

About eight o'clock at night, on the 24th of September, I was at home. I went up stairs; I think it was rather past eight o'clock. There was a light in the shop; I had lit a large lamp for about three hours at that time, and I lighted it as soon as it was dark. It was quite dark at the time I am speaking of. Before I went up stairs, I had shut the shop door myself; I had shut it upon the latch; it leads into the street. Before I went up stairs, I left my watch in the little parlour; it had a gold chain; it was hanging on one side of the waistcoat. It hung in a corner where any one who came into the shop could see it. When I came down stairs, I wanted to look what it was o'clock, and I missed my watch; I am quite sure it had been hanging in the place where it had usually hung, when I went up stairs. I let nobody in the shop. There was nobody in the parlour but myself. I pereceived that my watch was gone. I looked at the door, but could see nobody. I found it standing half open. I was quite sure it was on the latch before I went up stairs. I thought the least of its being open. I remember perfectly well it was so. I did not miss my watch until after I had perceived the door was open. I am quite clear I had shut it myself. I sent to one of the Hatton Garden officers that evening.

I took hold of the prisoner, and asked him if he had any thing about him; he said, "no, he had nothing." I had not heard at that time of Mrs. Black having been robbed. Upon his saying he had nothing, I began to search him. I found nothing, either in his hat or pockets; but when I came to search him rather close, I found the watch, chain, and seal on him, in his breeches, close to his knee, in his pantaloons. He would neither give an account of it, nor the maker's name, nor the number of it. I asked him where he got it; he said, "he met a strange man in Long-lane, who gave it him, and he did not know the man, and should not know him again. I took him into custody, and the others also. They were discharged. I have had the watch ever since. I am perfectly clear that is the watch which was taken from the prisoner at the bar.</p>

It is then put up in a cupboard in the press-room, and he locks that cupboard himself. Then when the pressmen begin to print, the two first come to me for the key. The printing goes on with great velocity. The first and last page are first printed at one press, then the third page is printed at another press, and the last page is kept open for the latest intelligence. The prisoner is then employed to count the paper out at the presses, and bring them down to me. Then it is delivered to the different Newsmen who come for it, and I count them out to see that the number agrees with the number that was brought from the Stamp Office. When the paper comes from the Stamp Office it would be smooth, it would not have the appearance of being folded up in a pocket. When it is so counted it is distributed among the Newsmen, The prisoner used sometimes to take out newspapers for Mr. Clements on account of the Office. He would get sixpence for them each when selling them for Mr. Clements, and they would be retailed afterwards at sevenpence, and the penny would be the profit of the retailer. It was not known that he sold papers on his own account; it was not his duty. He had to go a particular round, which was from the Observer Office, along the Strand to Charing Cross: Drury-lane was not in his ward. He lived in Drury-lane.</p>

On the 22nd of September I observed that this sheet had a stamp inlaid. The regular course is for the stamp to be printed on the paper itself. That occasioned in me some suspicion that all was not right. The manner in which we conduct our business is, after the outside sheets are composed, the printers go to the closet where the paper is deposited, and take the stamped paper out as they want it. It is made up into parcels of 250, that is, a sheet is turned down after every 250, which projects. They are delivered to Meyrick, who takes them away when they are finished. He counts them into quires, and delivers them to the publisher. The customers take them away by quires. The pressman has no check against the person who wets. He might put two or three more into every 250. The printer goes printing on as he finds the paper, and does not count. The fly boys have also access to the place where the paper is deposited. I believe it has been the practice to repair sheets at our office when a sheet is spoiled, by taking the stamp from the spoiled sheet and putting it on another sheet.</p>
<p>Q. But you could not pick up any stamp in the Observer printing room, except an Observer stamp. For instance, you could not pick up a Morning Chronicle stamp? - A. No, not unless it was brought in with some refreshment.</p>
<p>Q. The stamp on the paper you hold in your hand is not an Observer stamp? - A. No; it has been used before, and there is the tyye of another newspaper on it.</p>

I then shewed him the newspapers with the stamps pasted on them. I asked him how he came to have done it? He told me that he certainly did do it, but not with any fraudulent intention. I asked him what he meant by fraudulent intention? for it appeared that one stamp had been torn from a Morning Chronicle, and another from some other paper; consequently the revenue must be defrauded of the duty in those two papers. He said he could explain it in no other way, than that he had received a certain number of stamped sheets from the deputy publisher to wet down for the printers, and after those sheets were printed he was responsible to the deputy publisher for a like number. That in the course of printing off the newspaper a number of copies would be spoilt, and in that case he was required to tear off the stamp, and paste it in an unstamped sheet: and knowing that he was responsible to the deputy publisher for the number of sheets he had before received from him, he would look on the floor of the printing office for stamps which had been torn off spoiled sheets by the pressmen, which he would pick up and paste on unstamped sheets, and the stamps in question must have been stamps which he had so found on the floor, but he could not tell how they came there.</p>

There was a piece of Mazarene sarsnet and a piece of drab lustring on the counter. They were within his reach. He told me to look into the back warehouse, and look for the name of Brown. I went into the back warehouse, and just turned over a leaf or two of the weaver's book, and came back again. I am sure it was the name of Brown he made use of. I then returned to the front warehouse again. The prisoner was still there. I told him I could find no such name. He said yes, he was sure there was, and I must go and look again. I went again, for I thought it was of consequence. He appeared respectably dressed. I was not gone the second time more than ten minutes at farthest. I could see no such name. I then returned, and the prisoner was gone. The lustring was there still, but the sarsnet gone. There were sixty-seven yards of it. I ran out of doors directly, but could not see the prisoner. I am quite sure he is the man.</p>

He then asked to see a piece. I put a piece on the counter before him, and he asked what was the net price of it, as he was going into the country, and he would pay money for it. I went to the desk to see what was the net price; that was about three yards from me; and he walked over to the press where the goods were kept. That was opposite the counter, and he remarked what long lengths they were; and he said he had got a friend waiting at the door, and he would go and ask him to come up. He then left the warehouse, but did not return. I was not alarmed. It was four or five minutes before I suspected any thing. We had only one piece of sarsnet in the house. I do not know when I had seen it before, but I know I did not sell it. I did not look for that, as there was only one piece, and I did not miss any of the others. I did not miss that plain piece until two or three days afterwards. I cannot swear it was taken that day. I have never seen it again.</p>

He had the property in question embraced in his arms, uncovered. I asked him how he came by it, and told him I suspected he was the person who committed the depredation. He made no kind of reply. I brought him back to Longford; that is fifteen miles from London. Mr. Tatnell was present, and identified his property. The prisoner did not give any account how he came by the property then. Before the magistrate, he said he found it about a mile and a half from Colnbrook. There was a Mr. Edwards with the prisoner when I took him.</p>

He said he had been to Egham races, hawking clothes about. I could not particularly see what it was he had; and I did not know, till he himself told me, that it was clothes.

<interp inst="t18161030-24-person267" type="gender" value="male"/> </persName> . I am Sexton of the parish church of Heston. Lord Jersey has a pew in that church. It was the custom of his family to leave their prayer-books in that church. There were two quarto ledger prayer-books and an octavo prayer-book in their pew. I saw the church safe on the 24th of September at a funeral. Every thing was then safe, as far as I could see. I had seen every thing safe on the Sunday. I took it for granted every thing was safe on the Tuesday. It was my custom to keep the parish pall in the church. After that I was not in the church from the Tuesday until the Friday. I went out a little way, and when I came home I found that there was a hue, and cry. I went to it on the 25th, Friday, about four o'clock in the afternoon. I found it locked as I had left it. When I got inside, I missed the three prayer-books from the Earl of Jersey's pew. I searched the church carefully over, and I found two books belonging to the communion table were moved out of a cupboard into which I always put them. I have seen the pall since, and have got it now. Whoever it was that stole these things got in by breaking a window, which made space enough for a person to get in. It was about seven feet from the ground, but there was a tomb close, on which he must have got. I saw the pall afterwards on Saturday afternoon. My little girl brought it. Heston is about fourteen miles from here, and twelve from Golden Square.</p>
<p>- On the 25th of September the prisoner came and offered a quarto prayer-book to pledge. He asked five shillings for it: that was not near its value. I should suppose it was worth from 25s. to 30s. I asked him where he got it from? He said it was his own. I asked him where he bought it? He said he did not buy it, but he had it given him by a gentleman for cleaning his boots and shoes, instead of wages. I told him I thought that was not a very probable thing; so I went and acquainted Mr. Harrison. The prisoner was still in the shop. I went and informed Mr. Harrison, my master. Having conferred with him, he came and questioned the prisoner himself. I heard what passed between them. He asked him where he lodged, or where the gentleman lived that had given him the book? He could not tell us He said he could not tell; he was out of town, and he did not know him. Mr. Harrison then asked him where the gentleman lodged? He told us he did not know, that he believed somewhere in Whitechapel; to which Mr. Harrison said, that would not do; he must take him before a magistrate, and he must give an account where he got the book from. Mr. Harrison said he would take him, and therefore it was needless to make any resistance. He went along with Mr. Harrison. They had not got a long way, before I had occasion to go up stairs, and I was under the necessary of going through the passage where the prisoner had stood, and I stumbled over something. I took it up, and found it to be a bag, and it contained two other prayer-books; one exactly like the one he had offered to pledge. a quarto, and the other a large sized octavo. I immediately took the books I found in the bag to Maryborough-street to Mr. Harrison. The books were examined, and the prisoner was remanded for a further examination. The books have continued in my possession ever since.</p>

The other man tried to pacify me, and put his hand on my shoulder; but I pursued this man, and cried stop thief, and halloed murder, and ran after the prisoner, and never lost sight of him. He was taken before a quarter of an hour had elapsed. I am sure I never lost sight of him, and I have not the least doubt but the prisoner is the man.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by Mr. ADOLPHUS. This was about nine o'clock. I saw this man and another looking at a play-bill at a small butter shop, the other side Bedford-street. They might be able to see the seal and key hanging below my waistcoat. This was a very little way from Castle-street. The prisoner went up the court before me, and waited to see if I came up the court. As I passed him I thought his attention was fixed on me. I thought he was eying me, and I tucked my ribbon up. No one spoke to me when he robbed me. I turned the corner of the court nearly at the same time that he did, and did not lose sight of him. He dodged about the coaches in Bedford-street. I had sight of him all the time, and he ran into St. Paul's churchyard, where he was secured.</p>
<p>- On the night in question I heard the cry, and I pursued round and saw the prisoner running up Bedford-street. He was going along Chandos-street, and I immediately stood before him, and then he turned back and went up Bedford-street, and I followed him. He dodged about among the coaches, and he knocked me down. I got up again and pursued him, and he ran into the church-yard. There I followed him. There he struck me and knocked me down again, but I secured him.</p>

I pursued them as close as I could, and Richard Kelley appeared to have something under his coat, and was running very fast down Short's Gardens. I pursued him, crying stop thief, and he was stopped. In Short's Gardens I afterwards found the bundle which contained the cloth in question. Daniel Kelley, who had been in the shop, got clear off. Prescott was afterwards apprehended. I did not see the two prisoners about the door.</p>

I went to bed before eleven o'clock on the night of that day. Before I went to bed, I had an opportunity of being positively certain that the windows of the parlour and the street door were fastened; but I am not positive as to any other parts of the house. I got up the next morning before six; I first went to my dressing room, and thence to the drawing room; I remained in the drawing room about ten minutes and thence went into the dressing room again. Then the cook Holloway came to me, at about ten minutes before seven. In consequence of something that passed between us, I went down to the kitchen; I found one of the kitchen windows open; we found some papers strewed about the kitchen; my writing-desk that had been in the parlour the day before, was on the ground, and broken open; the papers out of the desk were scattered about. I saw that the street door was open; the bolt was drawn, so as to prevent the door from shutting to. I saw a wine bottle behind the door, and an empty tumbler; there was a little wine in the bottle; but nothing else that I discovered. There was another bottle behind the parlour door, with a candle in it; that candle had certainly been burnt; I could ascertain that it was one that had been in one of my candlesticks; it was not a common kitchen candle, but had been in one of the candlesticks that were stolen. I discovered the sidebord locks broken, and the papers and things that were in the sid board were scattered about. I kept some plate in that sideboard; I had kept it locked when I went to bed. There was a silver bread basket there; the greater part of the plate in the indictment was there. The value altogether was about four hundred pounds; it cost a great deal more. It was on the Saturday before that the prisoner Fricker applied to me to clean the plate; she came to me for a silver waiter; it was a very large one. She asked for that particularly; it had never been cleaned by her before; it was in my bed-room. She had been in my service nearly three months. I had never asked her to clean it, not intimated to her that I wished it to be cleaned. She asked me for it three times, and at lenght I was induced to give it to her. I don't recollect that I expected company, or that there was any reason for her getting it. She also asked for two gilt silver spoons which belonged in the egg stand, and that would make the egg stand comple. They were kept in the drawer with the other plate in the parlour. The waiter might be worth twenty pounds, I believe it cost thirty. When I went up stairs to bed on the Sunday night, the prisoner Fricker came into my room; I used a gilt silver candlestick to go to bed with. She came and took that candlestick up; I asked her what she wanted that candlestick for, and she put it down again, and went out of the room, She brought me a letter, and a few minutes after, she wanted to go out, and I told her I could not spare her, and she said she must go out, and she would, for it was of consequence, she did go out. Her clothes were in the kitchen at that time packed up; it was afterwards discovered to be so. I have a neighbour named King. In consequence of some

Fricker was not at home all Sunday. the 28th of July; she went out at half past seven in the evening; she said she wanted to go, but I did not observe the moment that she went; until she returned about ten; when she came back, I was in the parlour. In about five minutes my mistress called her up into the parlour; my mistress gave her a pelisse; she was to have taken it up stairs to my mistress's bed room. She returned into the kitchen. I asked her to go to bed; she looked at the clock, and said, it was very soon. I left her; I did not go into my room; I went into the parlour. At this time, Mrs. Ashworth had just gone up. There was no work left behind to be done. I heard a noise like raking out cinders; but I had raked out the fire before. I went down, and asked her what she was doing it for, she said she had no particular reason for doing it. I asked her to come to bed, but she did not; she sat down. I said she had better not, sit down, but come to bed; which she did not do. I went up stairs, and left her below. I went into my mistress's bed room. I was attending my mistress there when the prisoner came up; she had a candle in a flat candlestick; but went down for a save-all; she spoke to my mistress and me as she was going down; she said, she had forgotten it. My mistress and I went down stairs into the parlour. Pricker went down stairs for it, and returned with it is a moment; she said, she had got it; when she returned, I was in the passage, on the ground floor, with my mistress. At the time I am now speaking of, the street door was fast. I had fastened it.</p>
<p>Q. Had you before this seen that the windows and doors were fast - A. One window I am positive of, the one that was close against the kitchen door; but I am not certain of the window that was found open. The door behind opens into a little yard at the back of the house; that was never fastened; but I am sure it was shut; there are railings at the back of it. Nobody could get in at that back door, without tearing up the railings, and the railings were quite safe. I am positive that the windows were shut; but I am not positive that they were fastened. I did not leave any candle in the kitchen table when I went up stairs. The candles that Mrs. Ashworth used in her sitting room, were snuffed out, and left on the parlour table; I am quite sure they were both mould candles, and they were in silver candlesticks. After I had met Fricker on the stair-case, my mistress went up stairs; I followed her, and Fricker followed last, all going up to bed. Fricker slept in the same room with me, but not the same bed. When I got into the bed room, Fricker went into my mistress's hed room; she joined me in a minute or two; she was not with me long before she left me saying she had left her book below; I told her she had not, for that she had left it in her mistress's dressing room; she said she was positive she had, left it on the kitchen table. I had not seen the book in my mistress's dressing room, but I had seen it in Fricker's hand as she was coming up stairs and went into my mistress's dressing room, therefore I told her so. She did not remain below above four or five minutes, not longer than was necessary in fetch the book as I thought at the moment; when she returned with the book, she looked the door, and came in and undressed herself, and got into bed, and read a little of the book, and then asked me to put the candle out; I did so. She had never before taken up a book to read. I did not wake, myself, in the morning, but she waked me; that was unusual; I got up, and looked at the clock, I discovered it was a little after six; she said to me when she called me that it was time to get up. I told her I was rather surprised at her calling me, for it was not usual for her to get up until nine o'clock; I don't remember that she made any answer. she got up at the same time; but I went down first. My usual hour of getting up was seven. She got up once, when I first came to live there early to work; but on this morning. I know of no work she had to do. When I went down stairs, there was light enough to see without a candle, it was very light; I perceived a little light through the street door. I saw a empty bottle and runner in the passage. I did not look at the street door to see whether it was a-jar or not. I went straight into the kitchen; I saw the cupboard door open; that had been locked when I went to bed, I am positive. I saw my mistress's writing desk and tea caddy in the kitchen, and I saw at the papers were scattered about on the ground. I perceived that the kitchen front door was a little on the jar, unfastened and open; it could not be opened by any other way than from within by the appearance. One window was fast as I had left it, and the other window shutter was open; but the window itself was down; at that window there were usually flower pots standing; they appeared to be in the same stare that I left them in the day before, apparently nobody had distubred them. Any one to get in at the window from the out side, must have moved the flower pots, for the window is very high. I did not stay for any time in the kitchen, but returned to my mistress's bed room; at that time I did not know what to think. Fricker I had left in the bed-room; but going up, I met her coming down, looking very pale, my mistress went down before me, for I was very much alarmed. Afterwards I came down stairs. My mistress called me into the parlour, and shewed me how the things were broken. I found the sideboard broken open, and the house robbed, as my mistress has told you. I never knew of a candle being used in the neck of a bottle in my mistress's house. The prisoner Fricker went out on the Tuesday following; I had been out myself to the butcher's at about ten minutes before four; the butcher lived a little way down Oxford-street; my mistress's house is above Castle-street, near the Middlesex Hospital; therefore I would pass the corner of Castle-street in going to Oxford-street. When I returned, there was a tall man standing at the door, speaking to

When Fricker went away, she did not say any thing to me, nor did I to her. She was gone near open an hour; when she returned. I asked her where she had been, as she knew that I wanted to get my mistress's dinner, and that my mistress wanted to go out. She said she had been out to vent her mind to that person who had called upon her. That was all she said. There had not been any quarrell between her and her mistress, or me, to give her occasion to vent her mind on any subject. I had no reason to expect that she was going to leave Mrs. Ashworth.</p>

I immediately inspected the house, to see in what manner it had been entered. I found the street - door had no key-hole on the outside; therefore the lock could not have been picked. There was no appearance of violence on the outside, nor in any other part. I observed the window next to the fire place, and observed one leaf of the shutter was a little open. My attention was called to that by the prisoner Fricker. On my going down she told me that that was the way they got in. I went with her to the outside of that window in the area; there were six flower pots standing on the window sill; they were all of different sizes, and they had all plants in them, reaching a good way up the window. Those plants reached above the window, nearly as far as the front part, and some days previous to this, there had been rain, and a crust was formed round the bottom of each pot, that enabled me to observe whether they had been removed. I am positive they had not been removed lately, and no person could have got in there; it would have taken a great deal of care to have replaced them exactly in the same situation, if they had been removed. I did this in the presence of Fricker, and acquainted her with my observation. She strongly insisted that they had got in at that window; she did not say any thing else at that time. I examined the front area over, and other parts, to examine where they had been forced; there are no steps in the area; if there he a step, it can not exceed a couple or three inches in height, as it is only the sill of the door. I found no force had been used at the area door. That door was lined with iron. and the shutters was lined with iron; there was no appearance of force at all; they could not have got in at the back area door, for there were iron rails over it. The hall door had been shut before I came. Afterwards I found a bottle and candle, and and so forth. I afterwards searched her box; she was present. At that time I did not look for plate. Subsequently I found a piece of flannel which I have here. After I had taken her into custody, I had some conversation with her. At the first time I stated my suspicion; but left her in the house. I took her into custody before I found the flannel on the Tuesday. After I had taken her into custody on the Tuesday afternoon. I asked her who the man was that she had been speaking to cued the corner. half or three quarters of an hour before. She searched very reluctant to tell me; I proceed her to tell me and said, surely she could have no objection to tell me who he was. She then said, "he was a tally man." She explained that to be a hawking linen draper, who takes part payment for goods at a time. She said, "she had owed him eight shillings up wards of twelve months, and he had found her out at her place by accident, and she went out to pay him." She said "his name was Finch, and she became acquainted with him when she was at Miss Clarkson's. at Kentish Town, a lady who kept a boarding school."She said,"she had not seen him for upwards of twelve months." There was nothing farther passed that I recollect. She said, "she was a widow, and that she had been so for seven or eight years." The name of Kelley was not spoken of at all. When Kelley was before the magistrate, and the box was opened there, he claimed some leather which was in it.</p>

He watched her house I should suppose for the space of one or two minutes. I saw Mrs. Athworth's servant maid almost immediately come out of the house, and come to the corner to him; it was the prisoner Fricker. It appeared when they met together, by the motion of her right hand to his left, that something passed from one to the other; I did not see the colour of that something; they went a little way down Castle-street, and immediately returned, crossed over the way towards No. 10, and went down Bernersstreet. Knowing the robbery had been committed, I beckoned to Mrs. Ashworth, who was immediately opposite with the window open, and pointed to the prisoners. In consequence of what I observed, I desired my son to watch the man; I believe I did as far as Oxford-street; I observed him; he was a tall man with long dark whiskers, a dark black beard, apparently of two days standing. I thought I had seen that man before, frequently taking up a position, and always such that his eyes was ben on Mrs. Ashwoith's house. I have seen him in that position from perhaps an how to an hour and a half, or two hours. I look at the hat; the younger Kelley resembles that man, but I could not swear to him.</p>

On the 30th of July, my father called my attention to a man in the street; but not until I had seen that man there before; I had seen that man there before; I had seen him about half past one or two o'clock that day standing there. I first saw him about ten, and his eyes were fixed on Mrs. Ashworth's house. About ten minutes before my father called my attention to him. I saw him Fricker came out, and gave him something like green silk, which she had concealed under her apron, and when Kelley took it, he put it under his coat; I saw them go down to the corner of Newman-mews, in conversation, and in a few minutes they parted. Young Kelley I speak positively to.</p>

My Lord and Gentlemen of the Jury, I feel much concerned to see that so much of the valuable time of the Court has been taken up on this occasion; but if the Court had allowed me before my trial, I could have saved your Lordship all that trouble; but I could not suffer any one to be hurt, if I could say or do any thing of importance. I have therefore submited myself to take my trial, to do the other prisoners that justice which they have a right to require at my hands. I shall therefore coniess to your Lorship that I am the only guilty person; and whatever the other prisoners have done, they have been induced so to do from my mis-representation of the case. Consider what must my feelings be in bringing the grey hairs of my aged father, who spared no parts or expence to render me a respectable member of society, to this ignominious and disgraceful situation. With respect to Hitchin, the consequence of his conviction would be still more unfortunate than to me; for an aged father and an invalided sister who look up to him for support,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="181610300026"/>would he deprived of that support. With respect to

I am undoubtedly bound to confess the innocence of them all; and if it would be any satisfaction to the Court, I would confess the manner in which the robbery was committed. With respect to my own innocence, I would not have broken and entered the house; but I am an accessary certainly, and have led all the other prisoners to what they have done; and all of them are innocent, so help me God. If I was going to die this moment, certainly I am guilty.</p>
