The prisoner is a hay-dealer, and lives at Upper Halliford, near Sunbury—on the 22nd of March, about three o'clock, he brought this bill of exchange, and wished to know if we would discount it for him—we bad discounted several for him before with the same mark on them, which were taken up by the prisoner—John Cole keeps an account with us—he had at that time a floating balance with us, and we discounted the bill—I knew that Cole only put his mark to the cheques he drew, and I paid the money to the prisoner.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you remember going to him on the 3rd of March, 1838, when he owed you some money, and finding him standing against the stable?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I cannot say the day of the month—we had some conversation on this side of the stable adjoining my house—I do not know whether he owed me any money at that time—I cannot say whether I received any money from him that evening—I do not recollect it—I cannot swear I did not—I know I let him have a little hay, and certainly I was often backwards and forwards for the money—I did not tell him that I could not write, and he might write my name on a bill, and that would do as well—I can swear I did not—I do not recollect his telling me to come to his house that evening, and he would pay me the money he owed me—I have seen the prisoner's son—he was not there on that occasion—I swear that—he was no where near us when we had the conversation—I cannot say whether I went to the pri

<lb/>tended before Messrs. Broughton and Grove—I remember Sunday, the 7th of April—I think the examination Was on the Thursday after—it is not true that on Sunday, the 7th of April, there were in my house ten men and three women drinking and smoking; nor that between that time and the hours of divine service finishing, ten more came in; nor that, between the hours of twelve and one, there were twenty four persons in my skittle-ground—there were no one except the carpenter, who is here—we know when the church service is ended in our parish, by the tolling of Shoreditch church bell—I did not let in any persons between eleven o'clock and the time the bell tolled—the doors were not opened at all—I was in the house or skittle-ground all the time—there is not one word of truth in twenty-four persons having been there—the carpenter was backwards and forwards into the house ail fine time.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> How long hare you kept this house?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> About nine mouths—the skittle-ground is at the back—you go along an open court-yard to it, about twenty yards—the carpenter was altering the skittle-frames, as it was more convenient to have it done" at that time—my family consists of my wife and niece, a young child—they were there at the time—neither my wife or niece are here—they were backwards and forwards in the tap—that is where we cook oar meat generally—while I was in the skittle-ground they were at the bar, and tap, no doubt—I was never away for five minutes—they had the power of opening the door—I think the carpenter came about a quarter before eleven o'clock—he went out just at his dinner time, before one o'clock—my niece is at home.</p>

<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> she rode with me, and I was induced to go with her where she was living—there I saw the landlord of the house, the elder prisoner, and two children—we had more drink, and it got on for two o'clock—I got intoxicated—the elder prisoner said, "You had better stop now it is getting so late," and I was induced to do so—I sat down, fell asleep, and was awoke in the morning by a policeman knocking at the door, and asking who the two females were, going out in a
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> so early, it being between three and five o'clock—I had a purse, with between 13

<hi rend="italic">cab,</hi> and found him returning with the prisoners in custody—they were taken to the station-house, and there the younger prisoner handed the purse to me, and said, "That is your property, you gave it me to mind"—there were twelve sovereigns in the purse, and in a leather purse, which the policeman found in her hand, was one sovereign and 3
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—I do not know which of the two had that purse—a sovereign dropped on the ground when the purse was handed to me—I lost a silk handkerchief; but I might have given her that—it was found in a box in the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi>—the younger prisoner said before the Magistrate, that I gave it to her—the Magistrate asked if I recollected giving her the money, and whether I could swear I did not—I said I should not like to swear I did not do so—I cannot be positive whether I gave it her or not—I do not know whether I gave her the purse—I am confident I must have been so drunk as not to know what I was doing, or I should not have gone to the place I did—it was a private lodging, not a common brothel.</p>

<hi rend="italic">bobbed</hi> back into a door, and when the prosecutor turned to go to the key, he

<lb/>liceman about this as soon as he had got the prisoner—I was afraid to say any thing, and since the prisoner has been here they have cut my foot, and tore my things off—the policeman has got a warrant against them, and they they would do for me—I have never been in trouble myself—my father and mother do not support me in any way—I am sure the prisoner is the person—I was right behind him—when I came to the top of Bedford-street I was right opposite them—the persons who were with the prisoner turned down a court.</p>
