On the 28th of April, about twenty minutes before eight o'clock in the morning, I put some plate out to clean, on the dresser in the pantry, which fronts the area steps - a person could not see it passing along the street, unless he stood on the area steps of Mr. Goldsmith's, next door. I went into the kitchen for three or four minutes; as I returned from the kitchen to the pantry, I saw a man go through the area gate dressed in a darkish frock coat. In consequence of what the kitchen maid said, I looked and missed the plate, this was within a minute of when I returned - I immediately put on my jacket, ran up the area steps, and into the New-road, with Mr. Adams. I saw two men in custody half an hour after; they ran through the house, No. 14, in York-court - we found one in the privy, and the other by the dust-hole. We lost twenty-seven silver forks, twelve spoons, a silver mug, three sauce ladles, a fish slice, a butter knife, and a sallad fork, all silver; also four plated dishes. I found them all at the Apollo, public-house, the same morning, about eight o'clock, in possession of Morris, the officer. I cannot say whether it was one of the prisoners, who I saw go up the steps; but one of them had a dark frock coat on when taken.</p>

On the 29th of April, about a quarter before seven o'clock in the evening, I fastened all the windows and double locked the door; I slept there every night; but was going up to another house of mine at Edgware. Between five and six o'clock that evening the prisoner had rang at the bell, and asked if one Mr. Gurney did not lodge there; I referred him a few doors further on. While I was at Edgware, between half-past eight and nine o'clock, I was sent for - I got back to the house before it struck nine; it had been dark about an hour. I found the door shut, but a crowd of people round it - I applied the key, and found it on the single lock. I am positive that I double locked it; I went in, and found the back door, which I had double bolted and barred, wide open, and a pair of steps moved from where I had put them, and set against the party wall. I found somebody had scratched the wall leading to the mews with his feet, in endeavouring to get over. I went down stairs to get a light, and found the matches disturbed, which I had left on the tinder box. Upon going up stairs, I found a glass moved from the table by the window, and the trap door leading to the loft open, but not the trap door above the loft, so that a person could not get on the roof. I found about an inch of wax candle, which had been lighted, in the back area. There was a fire in the back kitchen, by which the matches must have been lighted. I am certain the prisoner is the person who rang at the bell - I did not know him before.</p>

About a quarter past eight o'clock on the evening in question, I was in Upper Berkley-street; it was duskish; all the lamps were lighted - I could not distinguish a man's features to know him a short distance off. I was passing down on the opposite side of the street with my wife, (the prosecutor is my brother-in-law) - my wife said,</p>
<p>"There is somebody gone into Mr. Well's house;" I said,</p>
<p>"Well, I thought so" - we crossed over and went up to the door, and found it closed. I had been there about an hour and a half before with Wells. We hesitated for some time, and presently I saw a light come up as if from the kitchen - I gave a very loud double knock at the door, and the light disappeared. I crossed to the other side of the way. There was a tall man walking up and down; he gave two or three very loud Halloes! and while I crossed over, he crossed to the same side as the house, and walked up and down. My wife stood at the door, and rang the bell; I told her she had better go to Portland-place, and fetch Mr. Wells; she went, and I guarded the door. The man passed me two or three times, and so did the watchman. I stood with my back against the iron railing, about two feet from the door. About forty minutes past eight o'clock, the prisoner opened the door, and came out - I stepped up, and collared him, and asked what business he had there; he said he found the door open - I called the watchman. A mob collected, and wanted me to let him go. His coat and trowsers were all covered with lime white, as if he had attempted to get over the wall - I gave him in charge. I went to the back of the premises, and found the whitewash all scratched off the wall leading to the mews, and three or four of the bricks pushed into the gutter. I think it must have been about twenty minutes past eight o'clock when we saw him go in

I never had any conversation with him about the house. I told my wife if she chose to leave me, she might have the house to live in, and the things for her use; that is all. I have paid no taxes, but I have got a bill for them, which I must pay. I have two more houses adjoining this. I did not take a list of what furniture she took, but I know what I gave her - I had no concern with Websdale. I gave the house to my wife to live in.

<p>Q. You never intended to claim her or the furniture again - A. I can't tell what may happen sometime or other. I never put any servants in the house. I have not attempted to separate her from this man; I ask him how he is when I meet him. I never intended to occupy the house myself; I never drank tea with Websdale there.</p>

Smith has an outer door leading into the street, which I locked and bolted. I did not examine the shutters - there is a wooden partition between Mr. Smith's shop, and another shop, forming I believe part of the premises, kept by Mr. Wilson; but there is no direct communication from one to the other. About one o'clock in the morning I was disturbed by a noise at the street door, as if some person was attempting to get in; I listened for five minutes, when it ceased - in a few minutes it began again; I listened, and thought I heard some persons whisper; I slept on the same floor as the shop. I got quietly out of bed, and softly opened the door, saw something dark by the door, and found it was a chair - I saw the prisoner crushed up by the door, in a corner; I collared him, and demanded who he was; he did not speak - I struck him with the chair; a struggle ensued. I gave an alarm; the watchman came, and demanded admittance; I told him to force the door open, which he did. I gave the prisoner in charge of Foley. I got a light, but could not see how he got in. I enquired of him how he got in; I threatened him, and in consequence of what he said, I went and examined Wollat's shop, and found a pannel had been removed between Wollat's and Smith's shop - it was a very small hole, but a small person might get through - I should have thought the prisoner could not get through there; he could have got in no other way that I know of. I did not examine the shop when I went to bed, and cannot say whether any one was behind the counter or not. The shopman had left about half-past eight o'clock. I found Smith's door unlocked, and the key in my door.</p>
<p>Cross-examined. Q. The first time you saw the hole in
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="182305140013"/>the pannel was on your return from the watch-house - A. Yes. I saw a young man much less than the prisoner, try to get through the hole, but he could not.</p>

I returned about eleven o'clock on the Sunday morning, and saw the opening in the pannel; it had been removed by boring holes round it, and then forcing it out. The holes were not bored all the way through; I should think the prisoner could not get through there. If the holes had been bored the night before, I think I must have seen them. I do not believe it was possible that the prisoner could be in the shop when I left.</p>

The pannel came against a counter on Smith's side; the aperture was about ten inches and three quarters square. Smith's shopman got through the hole into Wollat's shop, and opened the door - I went in, and found it was quite easy to get through when the counter was moved, as it was then open the full size of the pannel.</p>
<p>COURT. Q. A person in Wollat's shop could not have removed the counter - A. No.</p>

On the night of the 18th of March, about eleven o'clock, I was sitting in the kitchen; the prisoner went out of the kitchen - I heard her go up stairs, and come down again in about a quarter of an hour, run through the passage, open the street door, and shut it again. I went up to Erridge's room, and missed two pelisses, and other things, which I had folded up, and put on the drawers - I ran out after her, and met the watchman with a bundle; he said he had taken it from a girl. I saw it opened; it contained a bonnet, a pelisse, a shawl, a muff of mine, and other articles. I went to the prisoner's mother's, but could not find her. I returned home, and looked about my room, and missed other things - she had been in my room with me just before, and I took my things out of the second floor, and put them in the first.</p>

On the 22d of April, I saw a mark under his left eye; it was a considerable bruise, apparently from a blow - leeches had been applied to it before I saw it. He complained of no other mark; there was no other external mark. Previous to this, he was under great debility, and indigestion. I continued to apply remedies until his death - I thought nothing serious whatever from the mark on his eye. On the 1st of May, about one o'clock, I was called in; he was then very ill and sick, and complained of pain in the region of the stomach; he made no complaint respecting his head - he died in a spasmodic fit while I was with him. I opened the body with Mr. Lloyd and Mr. Lake. The membrane of the brain, on the upper surface, had suffered inflammation - there were sufficient diseases in the head, to lead me to suppose it might occasion death. There was an adhesion of the outer membrane, and the outer surface of the scull. External violence would produce those appearances. I opened the body; the heart was in a very diseased state with a quantity of bloody serem; this might have produced all the appearances in the head. The heart had doubtless been diseased for a length of time, and might have produced the inflammatory appearance on the head.</p>
<p>Q. If a person was suffering from the disease in the heart, and received external violence, might it accelerate his death - A. Very probably. I think the wound under the eye had very little to do with it, for he made no complaint of it; it appeared no more than a common black eye - a blow on the head might have accelerated his death. I examined the back part of the scull - there did not appear any bruise there. I think the serem on the heart was not produced by violence. A person in this state would suffer more from a blow than another.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. ADOLPHUS. Q. If he had received a blow, so as to produce inflammation, would it not have produced pain, which he would have complained of - A. I should certainly think so. The appearance in the head might arise entirely from the state of the heart.</p>

On the 20th or 21st of April, I was sitting at my table with Tate, who was a good deal in liquor - he had an altercation with one Barnstaple - in consequence of which the prisoner interfered. After some words had passed between them, Tate was removed by Smith to his own seat, and we prevailed on him to be quiet. Some conversation passed between the prisoner and somebody, and Tate said,</p>
<p>"It's a d - d lie," or</p>
<p>"It's a lie," I do not know which. The prisoner at that time was sitting on the opposite side - he immediately came across the ward, and struck Tate, who was sitting at the table with his arms folded; he struck him on the left cheek, and another blow on his head; immediately after Tate received the blow, his head fell on the table, as if he was stunned. The prisoner collared him, and said,</p>
<p>"Why don't you come out, and face me like a man?" No more blows passed - Tate said nothing. I said,</p>
<p>"Don't strike a man who is sitting down, it is so unmanly;" I prevailed upon him to let him alone. I believe his nose bled but he was subject to that. The prisoner went to his own side of the ward. Tate sat as if in a stupor for four or five minutes - his face was swollen immediately after the blow. When he came down stairs next morning he complained of his head, and afterwards, and particularly on the day he died. We prevailed on him to go to the sick ward on the day he died; he had not complained of his head before the blow; but he had complained of being bilions.</p>

Something more passed. Tate called the prisoner a d - d liar; he instantly moved, and struck him, saying he would suffer no man to call him a liar; he struck him on the left eye - I did not see that it had any particular effect, except bruising his cheek. He sat up, and said it was unfair; he was intoxicated at the time - they were violent blows. I saw him next day with his face tied up. I was in the room for half an hour after; during that time Tate got up, and walked about as usual. I saw him intoxicated several times after that.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. ADOLPHUS. Q. Did he complain,
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="182305140015"/>of his head during all that time - A. I never heard him. I believe the wardsman fined them both 1 s. for their behaviour. He had his hat on when the blows were struck.</p>

After the death of the deceased, I went over to Latham's ward to see a friend; I told the prisoner it was a pity he had not conducted himself differently, in consequence of the death of the man; he said he did not see any reason why he should not play as usual; and that he had not caused the man's death; and if I had said the same to him, he should have served me the same.</p>
<p>MR. E. LLOYD. I am a surgeon, and live in Falcon-square. I was present at the opening of the body; there were appearances of inflammation in the head, and of bruises under the left eye, but no appearance of any other external injury; the dura mater appeared of a darker colour than usual, and a greater adhesion than natural; this was produced by inflammation.</p>
<p>Q. Might the inflammation he produced by external injury - A. Certainly; the appearance might be occasioned by the state of the heart, but in my judgment no to that extent; there was a greater appearance of blood on the back of the head than usual. It was stated that the blow he received drove his head against the wall, which might have produced those appearances. When the brain is affected in consequence of the heart, the vessels easily become full, but in this case they were fuller than they would usually be from that. I think the inflammation was not wholly occasioned by the state of the heart; intoxication would produce the same effect as the influx of blood from the heart; the blow would have been a sufficient cause to produce it. Though I have no doubt but the blow accelerated his death, still I think it would not have happened had not disease previously existed; he might have lived some months under the disease.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. You are supposing a blow given which caused a counter-blow on the back of the head - A. Yes; the blow under the eye might have caused it; intoxication would not occasion such appearances. I never saw him before death, but can say he had not apoplexy, for appearances of that may be traced years afterwards. Intoxication in his state might occasion death.</p>

<p>"I have had seven pots of half and half to-day, and will have seven more before I go to bed;" and that, before he went out, he would lick Latham, kick the steward up and down the yard, and fight Barnstaple; this was three days after it happened.</p>

The prisoner came into my service on the 6th of November, and left on the 25th of January; about six weeks after, we missed a pearl brooch, with other articles. I did not see her again until the 5th of May, when I found her in service at Mr. Woodroe's, in Smithfield; I asked her what she had done with the articles she took when in my service; she fell on her knees, and said she hoped I would forgive her; she denied taking any thing; I found the brooch at Muncaster's, the pawnbrokers, on Snow-hill; I had not seen it, perhaps, for twelve months.</p>
<p>Cross-examined by MR. ADOLPHUS. Q. She was not above six months with you - A. No; I had a good character with her, which I found false.</p>

The prisoner lodged with me, both before and after she was in the prosecutor's service. I saw a pearl brooch in her possession a Sunday or two before she asked me to pawn it; this was in March - she said it had been pawned before, but did not say where. I pawned it for her at Muncaster's, and gave her the duplicate, and money - she waited outside the door the while.</p>
<p>Cross-examined. Q. She knew you dealt at the shop - A. Yes. I think I should know it again; but not if I saw it among others - there was a pearl or two out at the end of it.</p>

<p>MR. JEFFERY re-examined. I was present when Mr. Woodroe searched it - we found three keys in it, and one key the officer found on her; one of the keys which had been filed opens a chest of drawers in my house, and will lock the box where the brooch was, but will not unlock it.</p>
