<lb/>discese of Canterbury—Baltic-street. St. Luke's is in the peculiar of the Dean and Chapter of St. Paul's, in all cases of practlee—I have no means of judging but by the rules of the Court, in taking out administration—I was employed with my father to take out letters of administration to Henry Roberts, deceased, with the will annexed—I produce the letters of administration, with the will annexed, which were extracted by us—they are issued from the Registry of the Prerogative Court of Canterbury, as the peculiar is exempt from the jurisdiction of the diocesan, from the circum
<lb/>stance of the deceased being possessed of property both within and without the peculiar—he left bona notabilia, within the province of the Archbishop of Canterbury—the letters of administration are dated 16th of May, 1835.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Who fills the office of ordinary of the diocese of Canterbury?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> The officer appointed immediately un
<lb/>der the Archbishop is Sir Herbert Jenner, who, I apprehend, would fill the office of ordinary; but with regard to the province of Canterbury, I do not know how the term ordinary applies exactly; I apprehend the Arch
<lb/>bishop is the ordinary—Baltic-street is an exempted jurisdiction, and not within the jurisdiction of an ordinary; for it has been held by the Judges that the peculiar is exclusive in those districts—I am not aware that there is an officer called an ordinary within the jurisdiction of the Arch
<lb/>bishop—I am not prepared to say whether there is or not—the Bishop ap
<lb/>points</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183507060006"/>
<p>the ordinary in the jurisdiction of dioceses in England; but I am not prepared to state whether there are not exceptions to that—the deanery is an exclusive jurisdiction, and I am not aware whether the officer bears the name of ordinary; the ordinary is an official character, which so seldom occurs to us, that I am not prepared to sat who is the ordinary—Doctor Lushington is commissary—I do not believe there is an officer bearing the appellation of ordinary in this case; but there may be.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. ADOLPHUS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Where a person dies possessing '
<hi rend="italic">notabilia,</hi>' both within and without, has not the Archbishop the power of decreeing letters of administration?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Most unquestionably, if they were altogether in the peculiar, the Dean and Chapter have the power of granting administraion—Doctor Phillimore is the Judge of the Court, and has the power in that case; Sir Herbert Jenner whould have the power where there is bona notabilia,
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is not the person who exercise anthority, jurisdiction, and judi
<lb/>cial powers, in all those cases, the ordinary, in the point law?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> From the knowledge I have of the term ordinary, I should consider him so.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> The persons called ordinaries, within the province of Canterbury, would have jurisdiction over the personal property of persons leaving goods in an out of the peculiar?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> In each diocese, I appre
<lb/>hend, there is an ordinary, who would have jurisdiction of the property generally, of parties dying within that diocese, and having property only within that diocese; but the jurisdiction of the Archbishop is founded in the property being in two jurisdictions, and his authority being over all the pro
<lb/>vince, but he exercises his right only when there is property in different jurisdictions.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Because I had heard he was dead—that induced me to open the door—we opened it gently, and saw Mrs. Smith down on her knees at Mr. Roberts's box, which was open—I saw her take a bag from the box, twist a string round it, and put it into her pocket—she then came out of the room—I had drawn the door nearly too, but still could see through—when she came out, she said she thought the old gentleman was dead, would I go in and see—I found him, in my opinion, dead—his jaw was dropped, his eyes open, and his fist clenched—he was dead—I asked Mrs. Smith for some silver to close his eyes—she said she had none—I took some from my pocket—I Cannot remember what it was—I think it was copper money, and I closed his eyes with it—I asked Mrs. Smith for a handkerchief to tie his jaw up—she gave me a common blue cotton one, and I tied his jaw with that—Mrs. Gibling assisted me—I then straightened his hands, and retired to my own apartment, which was on the same floor, to breakfast—Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Gibling were pre
<lb/>sent at breakfast—we all breaskfasted together—during breakfast Mrs. Smith said she did know who to call in to lay him out—he was stretched at full length across the bed, but was no tlaid out—Mrs. Gibling, myself, and Mrs. Payne proposed to lay him out—Mrs. Smith said she would give us 2
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. each; which she did—that is the usual sum—we laid him out on the bedstead—Mrs. Smith sent Mrs. Payne to fetch a sheet and table-cloth out of pledge to lay him out with—she returned with them, and we laid him on the bed—we then went into my room, and Mrs. Smith gave me a sly nudge to follow her into Roberts's room again—we had not finished our breakfast then—we then went into my room, and Mrs. Smith gave me a made the observation, that—we went into his box before—his boxes—I did not tell her that I had seen her look into his box before—she took the keys either from her person or the table and unlocked the box—I saw took the keys either from her person or the table and unlocked the box she took the keys either from her person or the table and unlocked the box—I saw her lift the lid of the box up; and she said she had come up as late as twelve o'clock last night, and found him much worse and had taken the keys down stairs to her own apartment—she opened the box and these was down stairs to her own apartment—she opened the box and there was a place called a till—she opened it, and took a book from it, and in the book were some Bank-notes—she took one for £100, one £50, and five or six £10—I cannot say which—she said she would take them—I advised her not—she said they would never be traced—how could notes be traced; and that the old people (meaning Mr. and Mrs. Roberts) had got plaenty to come to without that—she put the book back into the till, and put the notes into her pocket-we went into my room again, and she gave Mr. the notes into her pocket—we went into my room again, and she gave Mr. Smith a £10 note to get changed—he asked her no questions about it, that I recollect—he went out, and when he came in, he brought nine sovereigns and one pound in silver—he said he had got it changed at Mr. Boll's, at the Goat, in Golden-lane—Mrs. Smith took the money—I saw them</p>

<p>repeatedly in the course of the day—Mrs. Smith sent for Mr. Hyde, a chemist, who employed the deceased, to tell him of his death—we dined together and Mr. Smith got very much intoxicated—he was quite overpowered and obliged to lie down towards the afternoon—Mrs. Smith said she should give me 25
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I was foolish enough to take it—she gave me two £10 notes then, and five sovereigns after she got the £100 note changed—she asked me the following morning to take a walk with her to the Bank of England—as we were going she gave the £100 note into my hand and said and said, "You had better take it, and get it cashed"—I was never in the Bank before—I pre
<lb/>sented it to a gentleman down stairs, who said I must take it up, and when I got up, they said it was an old note, and I must take down, which I did—they indorsed something on the note, and sent me up with it again—I got the money for the note Mrs. smith said, "All sovereigns," and I got all sovereigns—I wrote my name on the face of the £10 note at the Bank, by the gentleman's desire—I believe Mrs. Smith can write, but indiffer
<lb/>ently—this is my witting on the note—I did not write "Old-street, St. Luke's" I wrote my name, and Baltic street I did not notice the clerk write what is here—I do not remember that I was asked where Baltic-street was—I changed the £10 note at the note at the same time I wrote nothing on that I cannot swear whether this is the note or not—when we came away from the Bank we went to the Old Bailey and had some dinner, and then went to Waterloo-house, in St. Paul's Church-yard, and bought a black silk dress each, and a shawl, and sundry little things—we paid 2
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.4 1/2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. a yard for the silk—I cannot remember how much we paid in all—the prisoner worse the same shawl on Sunday, at Highgate, and she wore it at Worship-street—Mrs. Gibing assisted me to lay out the lay out the body—Mrs. Smith gave Mrs. Gibing one sovereign, and forgave her 2
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. she owed in back rent, as a compensation for that I belive nothing more based till Mr. Robert came to town, which was on the Saturday—the two prisoners bought, be
<lb/>fore he came to town, a bedstead, a carpet, a hearth-rug, and several little articles—I think nearly a month had elapsed before Mrs. Roberts ques
<lb/>tioned me on this matter—she seemed to be acquainted with what had taken place—I was taken before the Justice at Worship-street in a coach, by Mr. and Mrs. Roberts, and Mr. Jennings, the proctor—I had spent the best part of my 25
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. then—after I had been examined several times, the Magistrate committed me to give evidence I saw the shawl on Mrs. Smith's back at Worship street something was said about the shawl before the Justice it was taken from Mrs. Smith to the shop I went to the shop and my own shawl was taken as well—I do not remember that Mrs. Smith said any thing about the shawl—she was not willing to resign it.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I am a widow—I live at No. 6, Baltic-street, Old-street, with my two Mr. Gilman lives with me—I have known him fifteen years—I have one room—I cannnot form any idea how long he has has lived with me—he has lived for a month at a time—we have one bed in the room—one of my children is about four years and a half old, and the other about eighteen months old—I have been a widow eight years next month—one of the children slept in the bed with me—Gilman slept in the same bed occasion

<p>choose to tell you who I receive it from—the room Roberts died in is a small back room, about as large as the table of this Court—there is a bed in it and two boxes—the box at which I saw the woman kneeling was about five or six yards from where I was at the fur
<lb/>ther end of the room—the opening of the door did not make the least noise—I opened it quietly, by Mrs. Payne's desire—It was not my business to mention it to the female prisoner that I saw her at the box in the morning—I could have got into the room—the door was not kept locked until within the last week or fortnight—I never was in the room but in company with Mrs. Smith—I do not know that my key opens that door—I have never tried it—It ought not—I mentioned at Worship-street that door—I have never Robert's room the night before, and taken the keys down what I said was read to me, and I signed it I said there that I advised her not to take the notes, and that she said nobody could trace Bank notes—I mean to swear that deliberately.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was it not that you advised her not to take the £100, as it was a large amount but she said she would take them all?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, Sir not to take the notes or at any rate, not the £100 note, as it was a large amount, and she would find a difficulty in getting it cashed.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you still persist in saying that you advised her not to take the notes, and she said noboby could trace Bank notes?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, it was in my room that Mrs. Smith gave her husband the £10 note—he wished to go for Mr. Hyde, and she wished to stop till the room was cleaned—he said the sooner Mr. Hyde was sent for the better—there was one £100 note and one £10 note—that was all I changed at the Bank.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you know this £20 note now be careful in the answer you give me?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I never saw that note in my life—this "Susan Gilman" on the note is not my writing—I never saw it in my life—my room is on the same floor as Mr. Roberts's—I was examined five times—I did not say on the first examination that I peeped through the key-hole—It was through the crack of the door—I swore the truth—I did see her through the key-hole, but through the crevice—Mrs. Gibing was looking with me—we both looked through the key-hole and through the door likewise, at differ
<lb/>ent times—Mrs. Smith was at the box a couple of minutes—we did not speak to one another that I remember—I bought a glass and some other things—I spent all the money, and more too—I was not without money at Mr. Robert's death—I did not spend all the money in things—I gave some to Gilman—I gave him £12 or £13—I misunderstood you when I said I laid out all the money; I thought you meant had I expended it all—I expended 1

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. in taking articles of dress out of pledge—I had wearing apparel in pawn, though I had money before I had paid my rent—this shawl I now have on is what I bought, where Mrs. Smith bought here—I am not ashamed to wear it, as fast as I can—I have seen Mrs. Roberts every day I have been here—I was here from this day three weeks until the Friday, and I saw her every day that week.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say that at Worship-street you swore you advished her not to take the notes, and particularly the £100 note—did you mention about the £100 note?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I think I did—I do not think I said that Mrs. Smith said that the old people would have enough coming to them—I certainly have remembered many little things since—having been in prison so long, I have had time to bring every thing to my recollection—I do not remem

<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. ADOLPHUS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You went at large after the four examinations?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Mr. Roberts entered into recognizance for my appearance—my hus

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You swore you were-examined after the woman stated this; is that true?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It is true what she said to me—I have told the truth—I cannot give any reason why I did not disclose to the Magistrate what I have told here to-day, about this woman asking forgiveness and offering to give up one share—I belive I was sworn to tell the whole truth, but I thought Mrs. Smith would turn the money—I have spoken the truth and no more—I told truth, that is all the answer that I can given you—I have left my tongue behind me at Manchester.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Now heard the question the foreman of Jury, put would have prosecuted or appeared in this business if the money had been paid?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, I dare say we should—Mr. Jennings was the gentleman who put the prosecution forwards—we should have been what he directed us—I did not send any message by Mr. Jennings to the prisoners, nor did my husband—I never gave him any money to give the prisoners, nor did mu husband—he went with us to the prison—It was left entirely to him—I might desire him to say something to the prisoners, or I might not, I cannot say.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Will you swear you did not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Perhaps in this length of time I have forgotten it—you ask me so many question, I cannot give you an answer—I have no more to say—I never said I would settle this for 200/. nor for any sum, I swear I never did—I never went with Mr. Jennings to the prison my life.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> I thought you said you sent?

<lb/>ville—I am not in any business. On Friday the 12th of June, a little before six o'clock, in the evening, I was in my garden—my servant Ruth Whiting, came to me and in consequence of what she told me, I came out of the garden into the parlour instantly—I had been in the par
<lb/>lour and had not left it above a minute or so—I left my gold spectacles on a corner of the table—when I came into the parlour, I found the prisoner there—I am not at all acquainted with him—he was sitting on a chair—he got up—I asked him to sit down—he was about seven feet from where the spectacles lay when I left them—he said he was about publishing a work about as I understood, the interior of the Cape of Good Hope—he showed me a list of names of reverend gentlemen, a great many, as subscribers—I looked at it; and told him I had not the honour of knowing any of those gen
<lb/>tlemen—he said that was</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183507060020"/>
<p>very likely, because they were all written with one hand as I understood him to say—he then showed me a pocket book with a vast number of names in it—I told him I was equally unfortunate in that I looked at a great many of them, and said there was none of them that I knew—I then asked him if he could recommend me to any persons in the neighbourhood who had subscribed—I did not subscribe—he left the house instantly—the conversation occupied not three minutes altogether, from the time he came into the house till he was out it—I had not occassion to use; my spectacles again that evening—I missed them next afternoon (Satur

<lb/>day—they were the same spectacles as I had left on the table before the prisoner came these are them, (

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> They are very light spectacles are they not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Extremely light.</p>
<p>The prisoner being called on for his defence made a long and uncon
<lb/>nected address the purport of which is as follows:—That on Mr. Douglass entering the room, he (the prisoner) had his hat in his hand—upen Mr. Doug lass asking what was his pleasure, he put his hat on the table; and during part of the conversation, Mr. Douglass, whom he understood to have been affected with palsy, stood shaking something in his hand (he could not tell whether it was the spectacles or not) very near the edge of his hat, ap
<lb/>pearing much agitated and angry and treated him very unkindly—the prisoner stood, with his hat on the table and took his handkerchief from his hat (as was his invariable custom when he went into a room) to wipe his face, and either placed his handkerchief on the side of his hat or into it the prosecutor then wiped at his book, and treated him very abruptly—on which the prisoner immediately left and he belived he slammed the door harder than he should have done, feeling displessed at his reception—that he had been calling for two hours and a half on other gentlemen in the neighbourhood for the purpose of soliciting sub
<lb/>scriptions; and called at some houses afterwards—In an hour and a half or two hours he called at a public-house for a glass of beer, and on plac
<lb/>ing his hat on the table took his handkerchief from it and wiped his face and the spectacles dropped out—whether Mr. Douglas had accidentally placed them there, are whether he (the prisoner)had taken them up with his handkerchief (they having single arms) he could not tell; but he had since tried the experiment, and at the very fast trial they clung to the handker chief that upon finding them, he called and some of the houses in the neighbourhood he had been to, but could not find an owner for the spectacles; being unacquainted with the neighbourhood, he did not know all the places he had been to—he immediately went to the first pawnbro
<lb/>ker's shop which was not above One hundred yards and pledged them not because he was in want of money, but knowing he was coming to the neighbourhood again, he thought he should be able to find the owner-that on arriving at home he stated these circumstances to his wife and gave her</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183507060022"/>
<p>the half-sovereign to keep, stating his intention of advertising them—that her illness had prevented his going out for two or three days, and the had omitted doing so.</p>

I have known the prisoner about a year and a half—he lived as butler with a family which I used to serve—he came to my shop six or seven Weeks ago—my son was at home, and heard what passed—he came into the shop to my wife, and said he was now living at Stratford-place, with a family, and be wanted to have some biscuits sent to the house—he said Mrs. Cotton, his mistress, had dined out with one of my customers, and she was very foad of my bread; but the bread he could say nothing about at present, but we were to send the biscuits up before six o'clock that evening—I then went forwards—he said, "How do you do?" I said, "Very well" he said, "Can you give me change for a bill?" and believing him to be a respectable young man, I said, "Yes; "—my son was by my side, and whispered to me not to do it, but I did—I gave him change for a cheque, for 10

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you know the prisoner in Sir Richard Glynn's service?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; I thought he bore and deserved a very good character, or I should not have cashed the cheque—he did not tell me that he received it of a person who told him he was living at Mr. Cotton's—I was unwilling to prosecute him; it is his own fault he is here; I was sent for to the office, and said, "It is your own fault that you are here"—my son had met him in the street.</p>

I was in the counting-house when the prisoner came to the shop—I went into the shop—he chose different sorts of biscuits, and begged them to be sent, about six o'clock, to Mr. Cotton's, 8, Stratford-place—while I was packing them up, he went into the parlour, and was speaking to my father—I followed, after finishing the biscuits, and found my father was changing the cheque—I advised him not to do it, in consequence of my suspicions on looking at the cheque, as the date was altered—any father said he thought it was good, and gave him the change—as the prisoner left, he said, "Be sure to send the biscuits by six o'clock"—I wished to go to the banker's immediately with the cheque—I went to Bosanquet's, where it was refused—I returned home, and mentioned it to my father, and went immediately to Stratford-place, to Mr. Cotton, and made inquiry—I met the prisoner accidentally about six weeks afterwards—he was on the opposite side of the way, in Regent-street—I recognised him immediately, but allowed him to pass me—he stopped, and looked in at a shop window—I passed him, then turned round, and found he had turned back—I turned into Castle-street, and saw him drinking a glass of beer at the bar of a public-house—I could not have a distinct view of him there, and let him come out again—he crossed over, and I saw that it was him—I followed him to Prince's-street, Cavendish-square—I touched him on the shoulder, and said I wanted him—he turned round, appeared rather confused, and said, "What for?"—I said, I dare say he knew—he said, "Let me go?"—I said no, I wished him to come to Oxford-street with me—he drew a paper from his pocket, which appeared the same sort of paper as the cheque was written on—I said, "You have got another of them, I suppose?"—he said, "Of what?"—I said, "You know very well"—he then put it into his pocket—a cab came by shortly afterwards—I asked the cabman to come down, as I wanted to speak to him, and in that time he put the paper into his mouth, and swallowed it—several people came round—I begged him to show what he was eating, but he would</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183507060026"/>
<p>not; and after he had swallowed it, he pulled out a piece of dry orange

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Was the alteration you observed, the figure "8" to "28?"
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I should think bankers would refuse to take cheques when the date is altered—I advised my father not to cash it, on account of the alteration in the date—I do not think the prisoner heard me—he was two or three yards from me, and I spoke very low indeed I whispered very low—he could have gone out of the way if he liked I belive he was very anxious to get out of my way, or why should he pass me and turn back—I am not in partnership with my father.</p>

I looked at him and said nothing—he said, "Can't you let me go?"—I said, "If I let you go, I shall lose my situation, and then we shall neither of us have a situation"—I asked where he lodged—he would not bear again—I said nothing more to him but took him to the station-house.</p>
