<lb/>dentist. On the 21st of February, the prisoner, in company with two others, came into our shop—the prisoner requested to have a tooth extracted, and placed his finger on the one he wanted taken out—I looked at it and said it was quite sound—he persisted in having it extracted—I then asked him into the surgery at the back of the shop—he walked in, followed by his two com
<lb/>panions—I did not intend them to go in—I had a coat in the surgery and a handkerchief in it—when I went to apply the instrument the prisoner slipped himself about in the chair several times, I presume to prevent his losing the tooth,</p>

<p>and while that was going on, his companions left the surgery—a few minutes. after the prisoner left, after paying me 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. for extracting the tooth—I walked to the door to see him out, and on my return missed my coat—the witness Hill was sitting in the outer shop, and she told me something—the prisoner is a little altered since I saw him, but his face is well known to me, living in the neighbourhood—if he is the man he has lost the last tooth but one on the right-hand lower jaw, if he has got that tooth I will say he is not the man—he took the tooth away with him, and might have slipped it in again, cer

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PAYNE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Had you ever seen him before?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, I have, walking about the streets in company with other men—his hair does not appear quite so light as it did, and he has also shaved off a little whisker that he had—it must have caused him some pain to take his tooth out—he asked, me how much it was—I said 1
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—he said he could not afford that, he thought 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. was enough—a man, having his tooth out, makes all sort of faces, and looks different to what he does at other times—he was in the surgery, I dare say, five minutes—the others went out two or three minutes before—it was a double tooth I took out—there is only one other tooth gone from that side—I positively swear he is the man.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Sitting in the shop, waiting for some medicine, Mr. Carrington was to serve me—they all three came in together—the apron prevented my seeing the prisoner's face well, as he went out—I had nothing to do with the coat myself—I have been tried twice—once I had three months, and once six months—the last time was seven years ago, before I was married—I have never been in custody since, but have got my living honestly by needle-work—I was never an unfortunate woman—the first time I was tried was for concealing the birth of my baby, and the second time was through being led away by a person at my house who took some of my master's property—I did not steal it—I have been married five years—my husband was the author of my ruin.</p>

In consequence of something I went out in search of two men—I found the prisoner in Argyle-street, about a hundred yards from our shop, with a bag on bis back—I asked what he had in it—he said "Two hams"—I said, "Come along with me"—he said, "Very well, you need not take hold of me, I won't run away"—the bag contained these two hams, which are Mr. Preston's—I had seen them safe ten minutes or a quarter of an hour before.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner.</hi> I was in Oxford-street looking for a job; a man asked me to carry a bag; I did so; he took me to the shop door and said, "Follow me;" I went to a public-house, and called for a pint of beer; he came in and said, "Go into the tap-room," which I did; the prosecutor came in, and the other man ran away.

On Saturday, the 17th, about ten o'clock in the morning, the prisoner came up to me at the James-street bar (the James-street boy was there), he said, "Do you want to buy any tickets?"—we said, "No"—he gave West one of the tickets—we took that down to Mr. Hawkins, and told him—I returned to the James-street bar—the prisoner was there—we had been told to keep him in talk—I asked how much he wanted for the tickets—he said he would sell us seven tickets for sixpence—he showed them to me in his pocket—I suppose there were one hundred and thirty-five slips—he said he would take one shilling for the lot—there was seven different numbers—if I had taken them they would have enabled me to pass carriages, and I should not have been obliged to account for the money received—he said he had bought them yesterday, and they very nearly cost him 1
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—I saw them taken from him afterwards—he shook his fist at me as he was going away, and said, "If you tell, I will kill you," or "smash you," I cannot tell which—I had never seen him before to my recollection.</p>

On the 17th I received a communication from Sievers in consequence of which I gave him some directions, and the prisoner was brought to me—I took him to the toll-house, told him I understood he had got a lot of tickets, and wished to know how he came by them—he said he had not got any—I felt convinced he had, and told him to produce them—he said he had torn them up, and thrown them away—I searched him, and found these tickets concealed inside his trowsers behind—they are at they are sent to our place by Mr. Aris—they are not in the state to be passed till they are dated.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> There are a great quantity of these slips made?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I have given different quantities to the various persons employed by the trustees—on the 16th of November I had out from a dozen to fourteen—I make them out as I require them—I cannot state how many slips Robin

I was up stairs in my room—the prisoner was down, outside her own door in the court—I heard her say I had taken her candle and candlestick—I sent one of my children to say I had not got it—I put my head out of window—she used bad expressions, and said I had got them—I came out into the court afterwards, and she accused me of it again—I put on my gown, and went down with my candle and candlestick in my hand to show her it was not hers, and said I had no other—she immediately used bad expressions, took up a knife, and said if I said so again she would cut me—she cut me across the middle of my hand with a knife, then took up a fork and stabbed me in the left arm—I went out, and her husband and her, and another woman, followed me out and all beat me—I lent up against the wall to support myself, for I was quite faint with the loss of blood—a person fetched the police—when he came she had gone into her own room—I put my hand through the window, and pulled the curtain aside, to show the policeman where she was gone—the policeman told me to have my hand attended to, and he would take her in the morning—I went to the work—house—the doctor there would not have anything to do with it, it might be a locked jaw case—I was taken to Charing-cross hospital—they were two hours taking me there, from my continual fainting.</p>
