On Tuesday, the 10th of December, I received nine sovereigns and some silver as my-wages, and went to lodge at Mrs. Skeet's, in Bluegate-fields—I gave her a sovereign in the course of the day, and changed another—I do not recollect whether it was in a public-house—after supper I came out with the remainder of the money about roe—I went to the Goose public-house, and met the prisoner there in company with another man—they Were my shipmates—I went with the prisoner to Fraser's beer-shop where he lodged, and got drunk, so as not to know what happened—I was aroused up about half-past eleven o'clock, as I understand since, and found myself at Fraser's—my money was all gone then—I was too drunk to know how it went.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> There were plenty in the room—the prisoner was boatswain of our vessel—I bad only been one voyage with him from Quebec—we were on pretty good terms—I cannot answer for my conduct when drunk—it is not my fashion to take any thing from a man, and give t him again a day or two afterwards—the prisoner was drinking with me—I do not recollect changing another sovereign at a public-house—I might have done so—I fell asleep a short time after I got into the public-house—I cannot say how many public-houses I went into—I was at Frazer's, and the Swan public-house, or
<hi rend="italic">Paddy's Goose</hi>, as it is called—I do not remember any more—I came direct to the

I went to Fraser's beer-shop between eight and nine o'clock, and saw Wilson there—I sat close alongside of him—another man went in along with me—there were others there—Wilson was sitting with his head on the table—the prisoner came in, and tried to arouse him—I said, "Let the man be a little bit, you can't get him up; we shall be going home by-and-by; he lives in the same house I do, and by the time the house closes we shall be able to get him home"—the prisoner went away then—he came back again a good bit afterwards, when the house was about to be closed, and he said there were two shipmates of his, another as well as Wilson, paid the same day, and he should see that their money was secured—I said, "Call for the landlady and a policeman or two, so that every body shall see what money the man has got, and deposit it down on the table," but the prisoner did not wait, but went and searched the man's pockets, I jumped on the same seat where Wilson was, took hold of his collar, lifted him, and said, "Don't search the man in that way—why not put what money the man has down?"—I did not see the money—Fraser came in at the time—I then left the two of them together searching the man—Fraser stood there—I cannot say whether Wilson's head was up at the time, or whether it fell down when I let go of it—I heard the money jingle in the prisoner's hand as I went round, but whether it was silver or gold t cannot tell—the alarm was given in a moment that the man was robbed—I was going out at the time, but I stopped, and said I had 1

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Are you a shipmate of Wilson's?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, but I lodge in the same house—there were two or three there who had been on board the

In consequence of what I heard between nine and ten o'clock I went to the King William public-house, New Gravel-lane—I there saw Wilson, the prisoner, and other persons—Wilson complained of being robbed—at first he said, to the best of my recollection, that he had lost nine sovereigns—on questioning him I learnt he had received nine and some silver the day previous, for his pay, and he had paid one away and changed one—this was said in the pri
<lb/>soner's presence—the witness Jackson, in naming the circumstance of Wilson being robbed, said that it was proposed they should all be searched before they left, and that the prisoner was shortly after absent—I immediately asked the prisoner what money he had about him—he said, "I have sixpence or a shilling, and some coppers"—I went to Fraser's with him, and after he got there I though the seemed uneasy or fidgetty—he passed round the bar into a little back parlour, returned im
<lb/>mediately, and said, "I will be with you in a minute"—he crossed the tap-room and opened the back door—I was close to him, and said, "Where are you going?"—he said, "Backwards"—he had unbuttoned</p>

<p>his braces, as though he was going to the back place—I said, "I shall not allow you to go there till I search you"—I took hold of his hand—he pulled back from me, but I took him into the tap-room, and searched him—I found sixpence in one pocket, and 4
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. in copper, and one shilling and two sixpences in another, and a knife—the prosecutor at that time said the knife was his—he has not identified it since—the prisoner then said, "It is no use your searching me any further, I have nothing else about me," and he began putting his handkerchief on his neck—I said I must see something more about him—he sat down, and took off his right shoe—when the heel went on the floor I heard something make a noise, and when I took off the stocking, I shook it on the table, and two sovereigns came out of it—I have omitted to state, that I had previously asked him what business his hands had in the prosecutor's pocket the night before—he said he had passed them into his pocket to see if he bad any money to pay his reckoning, and he took out half-a-crown and a halfpenny—when I found the two sovereigns he said, "I know I took them, but I intended to give them to him, but was afraid, as there was so much noise about it."</p>
