<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. on account of my brother's name being mentioned—I believed that he knew my brother—did not look at the watch, to ascertain the value—Lee said there was a great deal of interest wanted among the captains, to get work now, and he seemed rather

<p>years—I knew him as a painter, but never knew his name—I had never seen Roberts before in my life—I did not see either of them again till they were at the Thames police-office on the Tuesday week afterwards—Lee first called Roberts "Captain Roberts," and then he said "Captain Robert Brown, when did you arrive?"—I am quite certain of both the prisoners—they were dressed more like gentlemen than they are now—Roberts looked like a captain.</p>

<lb/>terwards Went to the station—the policeman searched him again there, and found about half-a-pound more currants in his pocket—his premises were afterwards searched, and all the articles stated in the indictment were found, all of which I deal in—the currants were in a bag, with the mark of one of my country customers on it—I can undertake to say that bag had been in my possession—there was more currants in another bag, and the liquorice was in in a paper stamped—I know the lozenges and other things—they belong to me, as they are marked with our stamp—I believe all the articles found belong to me—my stock is considerable—I should not be able to miss the articles individually—I should miss them in the whole—my stock has cer
<lb/>tainly decreased beyond my sales—(
<hi rend="italic">property produced</hi>)—when the prisoner was at the station-house he said he lived at No. 3, Swan-alley—in conse
<lb/>quence of that statement I accompanied the police-officer to No. 3, Swan-alley,</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130008"/>
<p>but no such person lived there—I returned to the prisoner and said, "You don't live at No. 3, Swan-alley, you had better tell us the truth" he then said he lived at No. 6, Swan-alley, in the middle room—I went to No. 6 about half-past ten o'clock—I found nothing belonging to me in the middle room—in consequence of inquiries I made there I searched the front room ground-floor, and all the articles enumerated were found in that room—we do not deal by retail—we deal in all the articles found, and I believe the whole of them to be mine.</p>
<p>

<lb/>nicated what I saw to the prosecutor, and afterwards saw the property which was brought from the prisoner's premises—I was shown two bags—there was pimento or allspice in them then—I know this bag—it had been sent to a country customer and returned—it is my master's property—here is my master's stamp on this liquorice, which denotes that it was made at my master's premises—I know this tin—it is used to put goods in, and has a label on it, printed purposely for us—there is nothing in the tins—they usually contain acidulated drops—we found no acidulated drops—the other articles are such as Mr. Wilkins deals in—nothing but the liquorice bears the stamp—we have a great quantity of the tins—here is another bag similar to the one sent to the country customer, and returned, which belongs to my master—the prisoner was never authorised to take any of these things away, nor the bags.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What was his duty as porter if he did not carry out goods?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Cleaning up the warehouse, and helping in the manufactory—he took goods out sometimes, but since he has been back this time he did not take out many goods—we send out four or five cart-loads of goods in a day—Mr. Wilkins lives at No. 57—the prisoner would have access to Nos. 57 and 58 also—he was not left quite alone in charge of the premises of a morning, but he might be an hour or an hour and a half at No. 58 alone in the morning—his lodging was about two hundred yards from the pre

One Friday, in August last, the prisoner was in my service, harvesting—he had been reaping corn for me, and had not done it to my satisfaction—I told him I wished him to alter it, and do it in a workman-like manner—he said, if there was any alteration required, I might do it myself—I told him I should not pay him until he had done it—he was at work with another man, his father-in-law—I then went into my house—this was about two o'clock—about nine, he came to the house, accompanied by his fellow-workman—I said I should not pay him till it was altered—he said he should not leave the house till he was paid—I went in, leaving him there, and closed the door—shortly after he rapped very violently at the door—I went out, and found him at the door, with his companion—I told him it was no use his stopping there, for I should not pay him till I saw his work done properly; if he would meet me in the field at five o'clock in the morning, if the work was then properly done, I would pay him for it—his companion heard what I said to him, seemed perfectly satisfied, and was going away—on his being about to go, the prisoner used some very bad language, and said he was a fool for leaving; he was not to be afraid of that fellow—he did not appear in the least intoxicated—his partner left, leaving him alone, and then he fol
<lb/>lowed him—there is a gate before you get off my premises after leaving the door—when he used the bad language going out, I asked him what he meant, and followed him to the gate, and at the gate he said he would knock my b—brains out—he had a hoe in his hand, and swung it over my head at the time he used the expression—I had not offered any violence to him, or attempted to strike him—I did not observe any reaping-hook at</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130011"/>
<p>the time, if lie had one—he did not strike me with the hoe—I went up to him to take the hoe from him—Mr. De Carr, a friend of mine, who was there, came and drew the hoe from both of us—I was struggling for the hoe, and closed with him, in my own defence—I was within two yards of him when he swung it over my head—I merely went up to get the hoe, to protect myself, to prevent his injuring me—while we were struggling for the hoe, Mr. De Carr took it from us, and the prisoner then struck me with the reaping-hook—I felt a blow on my leg—I had not noticed the hook—I am quite certain I felt the blow on the leg before I fell down—I felt a sort of numbness in my leg, but did not know the nature of the wound—the blow did not cause me to fall—after the hoe was drawn from him, in the struggle, we fell together—the struggle continued after the hoe was taken, and I fell in the course of the struggle—it might be two minutes, or one minute, between my receiving the blow and falling—we had a pretty smart struggle after I received the blow—it was while the struggle was going on that he struck me with the hook—I did not see him strike me, or see the instru
<lb/>ment he struck with at the moment—when I fell, I put my hand down, and felt the blood—the injury was two or three inches below the knee, in the upper part of my calf—I was wearing thin summer clothes—I am certain I did not receive the injury in falling, nor after I had fallen, but, in my judgment, a minute or two before—when I observed the nature of the injury, I turned round, and said to the prisoner, "You rascal, you have cut my leg, the blood is running"—he said, "Oh, no, it is not blood, it is mud"—it was not muddy or dirty where I fell—the blood was plainly to be seen—we had a light, which was brought up—I had got up when this conversation happened—Mr. De Carr put me into a chaise, and took me to a surgeon—the prisoner went away, and I passed him on the road—I met a policeman, and told him to take him into custody, but he was not taken till next morning—I am confident the cut did not happen accidentally in the scuffle, from the manner in which he spoke to roe before, and the way he threatened—the hoe being taken from his right hand, he had the hook in his left—after the hoe was taken from him I endeavoured to throw him down, to extricate myself from him—it could not have happened in struggling—I cannot say where his hands were in the scuffle—I have been totally unable to go about since—Mr. Emmett has been attending me.</p>

<p>think it could have pricked my leg without a blow being made at me, from the nature of the wound—the wound was in the back part of my left leg—I cannot tell which leg was foremost in the scuffle—I never saw the reaping-hook myself—I cannot say who picked it up after the scuffle.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Witness</hi>. I did not follow him off my premises, nor till after he struck at me—when he walked from the door to the gate he used very abu

I was at his farm at Heston on the 27th of August—I was at supper when Mr. Peto came in—after he was in doors there was a knocking, and he went out again—I heard some words at the doorway and went out—I found the prisoner and Henry Andrews there asking for money—Mr. Peto said he would pay them in the morning, after he had seen the work done properly, not before—the prisoner said he would be d—if he would not have the money that night before he quitted the premises—he placed himself by the water-tub oppo
<lb/>site the kitchen-door—the other man seemed to be contented, and was going away—the prisoner used some abusive language to him, which I did not exactly hear, and when he was against the gate he called Mr. Peto a b—s—thief—Mr. Peto said, "What is that you say, you rascal?" and went towards the gate—I could not see whether the prisoner had any thing in his hand at the time, as it was dark—I heard him threaten to knock Mr. Peto's brains out—Mr. Peto went up to him, they struggled, I went up and took the hoe from the prisoner's hand, and threw it in the road—in about half a minute Mr. Peto fell on the ground—when he arose he said to the prisoner, "You villain, you have cut my leg"—I saw no instru
<lb/>ment till after they got up—I then saw a reaping-hook lying on the ground, very near to where they had been struggling, and where they fell—it was not so near that they might have fallen on it—it was out of reach of where they fell—I put Mr. Peto into a chaise and took him to have medical advice.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> Was the hook bound up, or naked?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Bound with straw—I did not see Mr. Peto strike you on the cheek, nor put you in the ditch by the side of the road—the point of the reaping-hook was not co

In consequence of information I received on Friday night, the 27th of August, I went in search of the prisoner—I was not able to find him that night, but found him, about nine o'clock next morning, at the King and Queen beer-shop at Heston, on the Bath road, about a mile from Mr. Peto's—I asked him if he had not been working for Mr. Peto the last few days—he said, "Yes"—I asked if he had not had a bit of a
<hi rend="italic">tustle</hi> with him over night—he said he had—I asked him if he did not give him a chop with a reaping-hook—he said, "No, I gave him a chop with this hoe"—(he had a hoe in his hand)—and he said, "It served him right"—he did not say why—I told him he must consider himself a prisoner—I took him hoe" to Mr. Peto's—on our way to the station he said he did not cut him with the reaping-hook, but gave him a chop with the hoe, and he was very glad of it, for he would have to suffer as well as him—I said, "You would not mind whose life you took away then, so that you had your revenge"—he said he should not mind being hung for it, and he was sorry he had not cut his head in two—I am sure he said that—I produce the hoe.</p>

I am a surgeon, in partnership with Mr. Frogley—the prosecutor was brought to our surgery on Friday the 27th of August, shortly after nine o'clock—he had a wound on the back, and upper part of the left leg, below the knee, transverse, across the leg—it was not a circular cut, but a flat cut, and very deep, about two inches deep in one point, but not in all—that irregularity of depth was not caused by the roundness of the leg—it was deeper in one point than you would expect from that—the deepest part was on the inside—it was not a wound which, in my judgment, would be caused by drawing such an in
<lb/>strument as a reaping-hook across—I should think it more like a wound done with force—it might have arisen from a fall on a reaping-hook, if he had fallen directly on it—the first sensation, upon receiving a blow with a reaping-hook, would be numbness, from the violence of the blow—it is very probable that such a wound may be received, and numbness follow, and the party not be aware at the moment of his being cut—nothing is more common, and probably he would not for a moment or two be sensible of any violent pain—I have had some experience in such wounds—the cut divided the muscular fibre of the calf of the leg, and the integuments be
<lb/>tween the muscle and the skin, and the fascia underneath the muscle, so as to get very deep into the fleshy part, especially in the one part I have alluded to—it was certainly a wound calculated to inflict grievous bodily harm, and to maim the party receiving it—Mr. Peto has never been able to use that leg since, except with crutches—I believe he now bears a little on the toe of that leg, but it is quite as much as he does—up to within a few days of this inquiry his life has been in imminent danger, from the</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130014"/>
<p>time the wound was inflicted—it is only within the last week or ten days that he has been at all out of danger—I do not suppose this hoe could produce the wound, and for this reason, that, with that depth of wound, the external wound would have been larger when a wound is received in a fleshy part, especially in the calf of the leg, it gapes—I should say it is impossible this hoe could have done it—it was a more penetrating wound, especially in one point—more of a stab than a cut across—if it had been done with the point of this hoe, the external wound must have been much larger to penetrate two inches, because, to get the hoe in that depth, the surface would have been much broader than it was—it was certainly such a wound as might have been received from the point of a reaping-hook; and, from the testimony I have heard, I believe that was the instrument with which the wound was inflicted.</p>

<hi rend="italic">d</hi>.—a day—when the work was done the money was due—the work was done correctly—all he was angry about, was because we would not do day-work for him—we never worked for him but those three days, and we were not obliged to do day-work for him—he never found fault with our work, but he came back in about a quarter of an hour, and said he would not pay us, because there were two or three sheaves left to
<lb/>gether, which ought not to be, but it was of no consequence—this would never have happened if he had paid us our wages—we waited seven hours and a half after the work was done, and it was half-past eight when this disturbance took place—I had a wife and child at home, and had only left 2

<lb/>tive I had put it into the drawer—I am sure I took the letter up before tea—if I have said I took it up after tea, it is a mistake—I got a light, and looked about for it, but did not leave the kitchen then—I left it to go to the shop and tell the porter of my loss—he said to the boy, Kelly, who came into the kitchen, "Have you taken 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.?"—the boy said he had not—the porter said, "Turn out your pockets," and he searched him—the potter then said to the prisoner, "As nobody has been in the kitchen but us, perhaps you will not object to be searched?"—she said, "Not in the least," that she had property of her own, she should not think of taking mine—she took her pocket off—she did not show what was in it then—the porter said, "Have you to the amount of 5

<lb/>soner laid the money on the table, and said it was her own, that she had had some money left her by her father some time before—I said it was not impossible, her father might have left her the money, but if she had the purse, she had better produce it—she said she did not know any thing of the purse at all—she walked about the kitchen, and I observed her pot something down on the cupboard, but at that moment I did not see what it was—I went to the place, and found a sovereign, which made up the amount missed—a few minutes after, the policeman came in, and I gave her in charge—before that I asked her if she had taken the money from the drawer—she said, "It was I who took it," and begged I would not take any notice of it, that it was the first time she had committed such an offence, and begged I would not give her in charge—she afterwards took her pocket off at my desire—I cannot remember whether a halfcrown was produced—the money she produced I delivered to the policeman.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did not she cling to you, and was with difficulty separated from you?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—she did not at first appear agitated, but she did afterwards—I do not know that there was any appear

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Have you or not, during the twelve months the prisoner was with you, observed any peculiarity of manner, showing that her intellects were not strong?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Why, I cannot say as to intellect, but as to temper, there was great contrast, as good-natured at one period, and as opposite, per
<lb/>haps, an hour after—the was very passionate and proud—I do not know Dr. Harrison—I heard from her some months ago, that she lived with him for five years—he lived at Hoxton—I cannot say that I have observed any thing but these variations in temper—I never attached any thing but tem
<lb/>per to it—these fits of warmth were very uncertain, according to her feel
<lb/>ings whatever would excite her to pleasurable or painful sensations—her temper was bad in the extreme, but her general character good-natured, and very insinuating.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Except in this matter about the spoons, I believe you had no reason to suspect her honesty?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I cannot answer that positively in her fa
<lb/>vour, I wish I could—things were missed at various times, but from the high respect I had for her brother and herself, we were always inclined to attach it to other persons who came into the house—my spoons were found on her—we had missed various trifling things before, but they were too trifling to inquire about, indeed, I am here from necessity, not inclination, about the spoons—they were brought to me—I never sought them out.</p>

In June last they were the holders of some Portuguese bonds—on the 28th of June I carried seventy-four bonds to the Portuguese agency office in Finsbury-place, of which the eight bonds now produced were part—they then bad the
<hi rend="italic">coupon</hi>—sheets attached to them—
<hi rend="italic">coupons are</hi> dividend warrants, on little bits of paper, attached to the bond, and when dividends become due, they are cut off—the express meaning of "
<hi rend="italic">coupon</hi>," is "to cut off"—none were cut off these bonds, because no dividend had been paid on them—all the interest was due, and is so up to this time.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Have Messrs. Doxat received new bonds for those they handed over to the Portuguese agency office?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They have—these were handed in to be cancelled—they are not market
<lb/>able, or saleable, or disposable, without the
<hi rend="italic">coupons</hi>—any person who is accustomed to foreign stock would know that the
<hi rend="italic">coupons</hi>—are the only things which secure the payment of any interest—no merchant would take one without having the

<lb/>ber, in consequence of seeing an advertisement in one of the daily papers, I went that same day to Campbell's place of business in the City—he was not at home—I then proceeded to the prisoner's office—(I had not known the prisoner before November)—I found Campbell there—after some time the</p>

<p>prisoner came in—there was a newspaper there, and Campbell referred the prisoner to the newspaper, to an advertisement—I do not remember his exact words—he called his attention to the advertisement, and desired him to explain—the explanation, as I understood it, was that he had received them from his friends in Portugal, to be converted hen—(I do not recol
<lb/>lect that he said any thing about the advertisement when his attention was directed to it—he read it)—I then pressed for the money, and some con
<lb/>versation took place between Mr. Campbell and the prisoner, as to further security—I did not hear accurately the conversation that took place be
<lb/>tween them—they proposed to pay me the money the next day—I said I had come to settle the business, and unless I had the money I would go to the Portuguese agency—they then spoke of bills and wine warrants—a locksmith was sent for to open the prisoner's desk—I ultimately got some wine warrants in place of the bonds—the wine warrants were sent to my house next morning—I kept the bonds—in consequence of seeing something next day in the newspaper, I sealed them up, and sent them to Mr. Har
<lb/>ris's, my attorney—I afterwards saw them at the Manpion House—this advertisement is to the same purport as the one I saw—(
<hi rend="italic">the advertisement setified that the lost bonds in question were null and void, and offered a re

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—he owed me 100

I have been a holder of foreign stock many years ago—I can hardly say that I knew a bond without a coupon was worth nothing, for I had not had one for many years—I did not know it was useless or of no value without a coupon, nor that it was not marketable without it—I cannot exactly tell when I saw Mr. Campbell last, perhaps a fortnight ago—I have known him seven years—there have not been many money transactions. between us.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say that they proposed to give you wine warrants, do you mean the prisoner or Campbell?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> The prisoner and Campbell toge
<lb/>ther made the proposal—they spoke one after the other—they jointly proposed to give me wine-warrants for the bonds—they conferred together—they were talking together.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you mean to swear that any such proposal as you have stated ever came from the lips of the prisoner?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I have no doubt of it—I can swear I have no doubt whatever of it—I wish to be exact—I have no doubt in my own mind the proposal came from both—I swear it to the best of my belief—I cannot speak more directly than that—the explanation I understood the prisoner to give was, that he had had these bonds from his friends in Portugal—I do not mean to swear that he stated so, because I understood what he said imperfectly, and the explanation was not very clear.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PHILLIPS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did they both join in the conversation to which you have referred? did one or both speak?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Both spoke—when the prisoner's desk was broken open the prisoner took out a book—he said nothing about that book when he took it out, but he turned over the leaves, and then fixed on a parcel of wine, and made some extracts of figures on a piece of paper, which he handed to me—the prisoner kept that piece of paper—I did not see the wine warrants till the next day—after</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130024"/>
<p>he showed me the paper he began to write an order to the superien

<lb/>guese Financial Agency in England; their office is at Finsbury Chambers. The prisoner was in the employ of the agency in June and July last—he was assisting in sorting the bonds then out, and sent in to be cancelled and converted—these eight are bonds issued by the authority of our office, and which were brought in to be cancelled—I know the handwriting of all the official persons whose sgatures appear at the bottom—after the prisoner had sorted them, I made up a list of them, to see that they were accurate, and then missed eight 500
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. bonds—I spoke to the prisoner many times about it, and he said he did not know any thing about them—I caused an ad

<lb/>son whose business it was to cancel them did so in the prisoner's presence—these bonds are not cancelled, at least, the part that is produced—if properly done there ought to be a line on this part—these are severed, but not cancelled.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Are these papers of any value at all, since the new bonds have been issued?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> In the state in which they are, I think not, not as bonds—the Portuguese Government have issued other secu

I am a wine-merchant, and have one partner—my place of business is No. 36, Crntched Friars—I have had some dealings with the prisoner. On the 12th of November, about one o'clock, he came to my counting-house—he said be came to settle the purchase of the wine, and to pay the balance—there was a balance of I think 391
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., or something of that sort to pay on the purchase of some wines—the original amount was 691
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., but 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. had been paid by cheque ori
<lb/>ginally, and wine to the value of 161
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. delivered—Mr. Boyn, our clerk, showed him into my room, and at the same time brought me the delivery orders which had been already signed, with the date, I believe, of the ori
<lb/>ginal purchase, and reminded me in the prisoner's presence that it was a cash, or ready-money transaction—after a little conversation had passed, my clerk brought me in a little slip Of paper, showing how much the balance was, and said as it was a cash transaction interest would be charged—the prisoner looked at the paper and said that he thought there would be a discount for ready money, to which I said, "Why it is a cash transaction, and consequently there is no discount"—these are the two delivery orders which my clerk brought in—I said, it being a cash transaction I should have the money on the delivery orders, but previous to this, when he paid the 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., he had told us that these wines had been bought for a party in the country who had given this 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., and not being able to come forward with the rest, was the reason he had not paid the balance at this time—he said the party in the country had sent orders to town to the house of Messrs. John Mitchell to pay it—I did not know that house at that time—he said they lived in Broad-street, and it was a very respectable house—his words were, "You will find it is all right, the order has come to Messrs. John Mitchell and Co., a very respectable house in Broad-street"—I then said if he would allow me I would send one of my clerks with the delivery orders to receive the money at John Mitchell and Co.'s—he said that would not look well, it would hurt his character, and it would appear as if he was not trusted—I said, but if I sent anybody I would send him in his name, not send him with him, but with the delivery order, so that his credit should not be affected—he said he had promised to be with the parties himself, personally to deliver the orders.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> To whom?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> To those who were to pay—I understood John Mitchell and Co.—I cannot exactly say whether he said that at the moment, but he had mentioned John Mitchell and Co. before, and that the purchasers were in the country—he said he had promised to be with the parties who had the orders to pay—he did not say the purchasers were in the country, but that the house was in the country—a person estab
<lb/>lished out of town.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was there anything to exclude the parties In the country having agents in town on the spot, at the docks for instance, notwithstanding the fact that some other house would be the parties to pay?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was not meant so, at least I did not so understand it—when I proposed to send my clerk with the delivery orders I proposed sending him to Messrs. John Mitchell's, and after I proposed that, he said he had promised to go to the</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130026"/>
<p>parties himself with the delivery orders, and would prefer taking them personally—I then said to him, "Well then, it is understood that you will either bring me back the money, or these orders"—he assented to that—he said, "Yes, sir"—we were speaking in Portuguese.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BODKIN</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you upon that deliver the orders to him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I did—I remained at my office till nearly five o'clock that day—I sent, I believe, once after him, in the course of the day, about one o'clock—I went on Change and returned to my counting-house—I sent Mr. Boyn for him, and he came with Mr. Boyn, at very near five—he said Messrs. John Mitchell not understanding much about Dock business, preferred having, instead of the delivery orders, the warrants made out for the wines, that they had gone to the Dock to get them made out, but as that took some time, they would not be ready till the next morning (Saturday.)</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was Messrs. Mitchells' name first mentioned on that day, or had it been mentioned in the original transaction?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was first mentioned on that day—I always supposed the wines had been bought by some third party—I thought Messrs. Mitchell were only agents to pay, not the purchaser of the wines—I made the prisoner promise that he would come, either with the bonds or money, the following day—he did not come next day, or at all—and from information I received I applied at the Mansion-house.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How long had you known the prisoner?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> For some years—I have lately had small transactions with him.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Does not a sale for cash, mean that the money is either to be paid at the time, or within a few days after?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It depends on the credit you give to the parties—I have dealt with the prisoner for small amounts, on the understanding that he was to have the delivery orders, and to pay me shortly afterwards—that is the custom in the wine trade when you trust the parties—the original bargain was made with my partner, who is now in Spain—I was not present at that time—a great deal of this conversation passed in the Portuguese language.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> It was no part of his proposition to bring you the war
<lb/>rants or the money, but a suggestion of yours?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was a promise, it was my suggestion at first—a condition put on the contract.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PAYNE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you know whether a bill of parcels was made out to the prisoner, for all this wine?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was, according to my books—I had the prisoner taken into custody on Monday, the 15th—he was found at his counting-house—all the wine he has got has been 167
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. worth—the has paid 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Then you are over-paid for the wine which he has actually got in his possession?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not now—I was overpaid—the wines are yet in the Docks, deliverable to the bearer of the warrants—I parted with the orders, in the belief that there was an order from the person who had bought the wine to pay the balance—the respectability of the house of Mitchell and Co. was partly an ingredient in my consenting to his pro
<lb/>posal, at least the naming of a house in Broad-street was—I did not at the moment remember whether I knew that house.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did not you understand that he must actually have got rid of the delivery-orders first, or the warrants afterwards, before he could be in cash to complete the bargain of paying you the money?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> That he was to deliver them to some one who was to pay for them—if they did not furnish</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130027"/>
<p>him with the money, he was to bring back the warrants—it was in the al
<lb/>ternative—if the party did not pay, he was to return the delivery-orders; if the party paid, he was to bring me the money—if Mitchell and Co. had been the agents, they would have given him a cheque for the amount—I did not expect to see the delivery-orders again if he had brought me the money—the only way he had of turning the delivery-orders into money was by parting with them to some one else—I did not suppose he was going to pay me out of his own funds, but out of the funds of a customer of his—I did not suppose the party would give the money till he had the vouch
<lb/>ers for the goods—I supposed the party wanted to see either the delivery-orders or the warrants, and to pay for them; that is why I offered to send my—clerk, because I could not suppose for a moment that the third party would deliver the money to him before he produced the value of it.</p>

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., on the deposit of some Portuguese bonds—on the 12th of November, I noticed an advertisement in one of the daily papers, in conse
<lb/>quence of which I went to Mr. Campbell's office, in the City—from what they told me there I went on to the prisoner's office—I found Mr. Camp
<lb/>bell there—the prisoner came in afterwards—I should say it was about a quarter past eleven o'clock, about eleven o'clock, or a little after—I called their attention to the advertisement in the paper respecting the bonds—the prisoner gave an explanation that he had received the bonds from a friend in Portugal—a locksmith was sent for, the desk was opened, and a book taken out—the prisoner turned over the leaves, fixed on a parcel, or some entry in the book, and then wrote some figures on a paper—he said, "This is forty butts of sherry"—he turned to the book, apparently to select a parcel of wine to give me wine warrants—nothing was said about it that I am aware of—it had been said before that there were wine warrants—I think it was Campbell suggested to the prisoner that there were wine-war
<lb/>rants, and then the book was turned to—it was said before the locksmith was sent for—I do not know what was done with the paper which the prisoner wrote—he took it with him—it was put before me—I was sitting by his side, but I had nothing to do with it—when it was put before me, the pri
<lb/>soner said, "This is the order for the wine," or something of that sort—I think the words were, "This is for forty butts of sherry"—they were in a nook in the room, and in and out of the inner office while I was there—where they went to I do not know—after I had been there some time, the prisoner went away—I think it was about twelve or one o'clock when he left—I remained about half an hour, and then went away also—I waited expecting his return—I thought he was gone to the docks—I cannot tell what he said when he went—I was waiting for the warrants—an order to the St. Katharine's Docks had been written by the prisoner in my presence, and he took it with him—I left the prisoner's counting-house about one o'clock, and returned about two or half-past two—I found Campbell there—the prisoner came in afterwards—he told me the warrants were preparing—that was I suppose about three o'clock—I remained there until, I think, five—he was in and out while I was there—I was impatient for the warrants—he said they were making out, that there were a great many figures, and it took a long time to make themout—just before I came</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184112130029"/>
<p>away Campbell and the prisoner were present, Mr. Gardiner, the clerk, came to me, and said the warrants were preparing, he shewed me a receipt from the docks, to satisfy me that they were preparing, and promised they should be left at my house the first thing next morning—either Campbell or Gardiner said so—the prisoner was present—the warrants were brought to my house next morning by Gardiner—they were not endorsed then—I saw them endorsed afterwards by the prisoner—he came into my house, and there endorsed them next morning, the 13th, perhaps about half an hour after they were left—on the previous day, before the prisoner went out, I said, unless I got the money, I would go at once to the Portuguese agency-office—that was about eleven o'clock I should say.</p>
