On Tuesday morning, the 20th of June, about half-past one o'clock, I was High-street, Bow, in the parish of St. Mary, Stratford—I was at the further end, near Bow-bridge, looking up the town, and saw the prisoner come from about the spot where Mr. Sturgeon lives—he appeared to have something in his hand—he was a few yards from the house when I saw him—it might be five yards—I did not see any body with him—there was not a soul moving about the town—I followed him up the town, and saw him go to his father's door—his father is a jobbing carpenter, and lives nearly knocking—I knew who it was, and did not go to him—I returned a few steps, and waited—about two o'clock I had occasion to go to a shop opposite his father's house, and he was still knocking at the door—two more of our men came up to me, and said something—the poisoner then walked away—we went across the road, and saw some fowls lying close against where he had been standing, at his father's door—there were five live ones and two dead ones one with the head pulled right off—the prisoner went to the corner—one of the policeman, who is not here, went to lay hold of him, and he ran away—the man sprang his rattle—I went to his assistance, but the prisoner got right away from us—he ran through Bow Church-yard, and directly he got away I went back and picked up a white pillow-case over blood, with white feathers of fowls in it—it was in a narrow passage in the church-yard through which he had run—I took him into custody on Wed
<lb/>nesday morning the 21st, which was next direction in Whitechapel—I am quite sure he was the man I saw come in a direction from Mr. Sturgeon's house, and afterwards run from his father's door—I have known him many years.</p>

<lb/>square, to my recollection—when the prisoner asked me to wait, he made a sign that he wanted to case himself—that was at the time he left me—I remained there a couple of minutes—there are railings before the house there—I did not lean against them—he kept me on the other side—I fell when me his arm down—I did not fall again after I got up—I know he gave me his arm when we came of the public-house, and if I fell I do not remember, because I was very week—I do not remember that he fell down with me—I do not remember any one speaking to me while I was there—I do not remember anyone calling out to me to keep my body up—I cannot swear they did not—I do not remember sitting down on the step of a door—I did not, to the best of my recollection—the weather head cleared up at the time he pushed me down, but the ground was wet—I did not send for him on Sunday morning, or look after him—I though it would be useless—I believe he came to me by himself on Sunday—he did not oppose any shutting the door—I had three loaded pistols on my burean, and I first put those into my pocket for fear he should them, as they were quite near his elbow—I locked the door putting them into my pocket—my wife took them out of my pocket.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Now you have heard that read, where not sworn at the Mansion-house?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, I gave my deposition there—what I said was taken down in writing and read over to me—I never mentioned the name of the public-house—I might possibly tell the Magistrate, but I did not tell it of my own knowledge—I am not accustomed to public-house—I told the Magistrate the purse was blue, but there was black strip up the edge—there was no female in the Ship public-house in company with me—I saw a female there—I was not arm-in-arm with any female—I did not walk our arm-in-arm with one—I had drake two pints of beer about eight o'clock that evening with some friends before I went into the Ship—that was at a house in Watling-street—I do not know the name of it—I was never before—there were four of us—we about half a pint each—neither of my friends are here—I think I paid 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. for what I had—they drank something else—I do not recollect tasting any thing but a share of the two pints of beer—they were drinking various things round the table—I think, some wine negus, some brandy and water—some one things, and some another—there were more parsons there besides me and my there friends, who were no acquiantances of mine—I said there an house and a half—we were doing business there—examining patterns of cotton goods that some manufactures in the country were showing—one of my friends was a manufactures two were not—It was not convenient to go to my own house, and my warehouse was shut—I hat not been in any other public-house besides the three I have mentioned, that I recollect—I swear positively I was not in any other after I left my conuting-house—I do not recollect being in any other public-house, but I do not posi
<lb/>tively swear it.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Now, as you mentioned the pint of beer at the Magistrate's how came you not to mention the spirits and water?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I answered every ques
<lb/>tion I was asked—I know Barbican by name, but I do not recollect where it is—the public-house at the corner of Fann-street, Goswell-street, was next—I was in no other—Millward was brought into his watch-house in about three quarters of an hour.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you say one word to the Magistrate about either of the pri
<lb/>sooners asking you if you had got money enough to pay for the umbrellas?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I do not know, I am sure—I was not asked the question—I do not recollect saying it—it may escaped my memory at the time—it did not occur to me at the moment.</p>
