<lb/>ther, who is a fruiterer. I was standing in the shop between six and seven o'clock, and hearing a cry of "Stop theif," or "Police," I ran outside the door—seeing seven or eight people up Upper Bryanstone-street, I ran up there, and found Mrs. Green holding the prisoner by the collar, and a young man by the side of him—I went up close to him, and followed them into Green's parlour—after the door being shut, and the prisoner regaining his breath, he said, if Mrs. Green would allow me or the young man who assisted in taking him, to go along with him, he would produce the pictures—he said, "Do you wish me to go to prison, or wish to have your pic
<lb/>tures back?"—those were his precise words—he appeared very much agitated when I first saw him, in fact, it was five minutes after he was in the room, before he spoke—Mrs. Green said, "I want my pictures"—I advised her to wait for a policeman—she refused to allow us to go with him—I said, "He had better be taken to the station-house"—he made no observations about that.</p>

<lb/>ready, to-day, and he did not think they would have served him in that manner—I asked him who the two men were who were with him—he said "If I am to be given into custody, I shall say no more"—I took him to the station-house.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence</hi>. Gentleman, the policeman would impress your minds with the idea that I refused to tell where the two men lived—my object in refusing to answer further was, because I was not in a fit state to ex
<lb/>plain myself, so that what I said, might not be open to future prejudice—it is evident I acted with propriety, for what I did saw about following the men, has been explained differently by all the witness—I had really been serving those men, by giving one money, and writing a memorial for the other, and treating them—one of them I had not seen for four years, and he was then butler to the Duke of Wellington—I know no more of taking the pictures than you do—if these men took them, it must have been while I was asleep—I asked for two men to go with me with a view to overtake them, if possible, in order to clear myself—one of the witness says, I made use of the very words, but when I asked him if he was certain of my exact words—he said, "How is it possible for people to be exact?" if so, is it not likely that one word being added, might make a material alternation—they have all forgotten the word "endeavour"—if they had stated that, it would have removed any unfavourable impression—it is true I ran, and was much agitated, but Mrs. Green did not charge me with it—she said, "Where are your two friends? they have taken my pictures"—I said, "Indeed I know nothing about it, but I think I can overtake them"—she then called "Police," and I did run, trying to es
<lb/>cape—situated as I was, being some hundreds of miles from home (as I came from Jersey) it is not surprising that I should try to escape—it is to be re
<lb/>membered, the most eminent characters the world have known, both in ancient and modern history, have been susceptible of fear without guilt—had I been aware of what the men had done, I could have run three or four times the distance I was from the house when she overtake me, and is it likely I should hold a conversation with her at the bar, had I known what had been done? when two men were passing with two pic
<lb/>tures, fourteen inches by sixteen inches, and remember they had nothing to cover them; it would appear that I had attracted her to the spot where she must have seen them go out—if I had been aware they had been taken, is it likely I should call for an extra glass of gin and water, and detain the waiter while I gave him some halfpence?—the fact is, I had met one of these men, who asked me to draw up a memorial for him, to a member of His Majesty's government—I went to sleep, leaving the memorial on the table before me—when I awoke it was gone, and he said he had taken it—it is possible that the three females had better means of hiding these pictures than the men, for they had nothing to cover them with—I cannot be res
<lb/>ponsible for the actions of others while I was asleep, and it appears the men went in and out during that time—the room was very full of pic
<lb/>tures.</p>

Wheeler, Card-manufacturer and Printer" on each side—I went in with my companions, at the shop door—I asked for Mr. Wheeler—I went down stairs into a cellar-kitchen, and there saw the prisoner—I asked him who he was—he said his name was Wheeler—I asked if he was master of the house—he said, "Yes"—I told him I had got a warrant to search his house for a forged ace of spades—I do not ex

<hi rend="italic">Looking at the thirty-eight impressions of the ace of spades</hi>) these are forged—the circle round the garter is very dif
<lb/>ferent; the genuine one being engine-turned—it is the custom of card manufacturers to send paper to the Stamp Officer for the ace of spades to be stamped—the Commissioners provide a stamp for that purpose—they send plain paper to us in reams—the Commissioners sometimes provide a stamp with the manufacturer's name on it, at his request—there was such a plate provided for a manufacturer named Thomas Creswick—there is a book kept at the Stamp Office with impressions of the plates which are prepared—I have it here—it has impressions of the plates prepared for Creswick—the date is on the impression; "14th of June, 1828"—these aces of spades appear to be a forgery of that plate—the other aces found in the bag are all forgeries of other plates, of other manufacturers.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> In 1828, what was the duty payable on playing-cards?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Up to 1828, it was 1
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. on the ace of spades, 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. on the wrapper, and 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. on the label.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> The card you call a forgery, appears in no respect a resemblance of Creswick's plate?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It is very bad—it would certainly not deceive any body in the Stamp Office, nor any body else who examined it, I should think—there is a great variation between the lion and unicorn, and the crown; and in the ring encircling the motto—I have reason to believe all the cards produced are forgeries—Creswick is still a card-manufacturer—this old ace of spades is a genuine one—some of these old ones I have not seen before—I am not able to judge whether these are genuine or not, not having seen them before—I believe them to be forged, but I am not positive—this one I am sure is a genuine one—it is a very old ace, which was used previous to my coming into the Office—here is one genuine, and one which I have no knowledge of—the rest are blanks—the one with Creswick on it is genuine—this other pack is also a stamp used before I came into the office, and I cannot speak positively about them—I never saw Thomas Wheeler—there was a person of that name, a licensed card-manufacturer—that was not the prisoner—I do not know whether he is alive or dead—in 1828, when the stamp-duty was altered, the impression of the aces of spades was also altered—I was in the Stamp Office at that time.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> At that time, do you know that the Stamp Office had a great deal of card-paper, with the duties on it, of the time before the alteration took place?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No: I do not know that; nor that they sold it as waste
<lb/>paper—the genuine paper would be in the custody of the warehouse
<lb/>keeper of cards and dies—he has no perquisites, that I am aware of, respecting cards and paper—I have no access to the warehouse, and I do not know whether things are sold or not—there is only one warehouse—Lewis</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="183601040026"/>
<p>Legue is the keeper—I am not quite certain whether he was so before 1828—I do not think that Thomas Wheeler was a licensed manu
<lb/>facturer of cards after 1828, no plate being provided for him, but I cannot be positive.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. ATTORNEY-GENERAL</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was a new die for the aces provided in 1828, after the passing of the Act of Parliment?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> there was—if varied considerably from the old die—this plate for Creswick was according to the new die—those bearing the name of T. Wheeler I have compared with the specimen-book—I did not compare those two which the prisoner; counsel showed me.</p>

<lb/>graved for the Board, I take it to the stamping room, and take an impres
<lb/>sion of it in a book for that purpose—here is the book—in June, 1828, the ace of spades impression was changed—I saw the new impression made in the book, and this is the impression taken at the time—this is an im
<lb/>pression from the genuine plate—I apprehend this plate has been used for Creswick since 1828—these thirty-eight impressions are forged.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> What sort of forgeries should you call them?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They are imitation of the plate, no doubt—they resemble it in some measure—they vary considerably on being compared—any card-maker would perceive the variation.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I should apprehend not</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Can you undertake to say whether these cards have ever been played with?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Some of them certainly not, for they are not pasted, but on paper only—there was a wheeler a licensed card-manufac
<lb/>turer, and I think his initial was T., but I cannot say whether it was Thomas—I do not know whether the prisoner is a licensed card-maker—I do not think there is now any registered card-maker named Wheeler.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> There was an alteration in the duty in 1828; can you tell whether, at that time, there remained a stock in hand of card-paper of the duties then payable?.
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not of the ace of spades, certainly—if any was unconsumed it would be cancelled—they have not been sold for waste-paper.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PHILLIPS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is it the custom, in making cards, to paste this paper over the thick card, to finish it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Certainly.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Can you recollect whether a person named Russell did not buy some thousands of old aces of spades?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I have no know
<lb/>ledge of that—I cannot imagine how such a thing could have occured—I have no knowledge or belief such a thing could be done—the stamps for the ace of spades only vary reference to the name of the card-maker.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
