<p>
<hi rend="italic">Vitteridge's Defence.</hi> I get my living by washing and charing. About half-past six o'clock, on the morning of the 10th of Nov., Biggs and Ross came to my place; at least they came into the passage, and knocked at the next room door; the person living in the back parlour was out, and I opened the door to say so; they said, "We want a little washing done, can you do it for us?" I said, "Not before the afternoon;" they said that would do; they came in, and laid on the table a bundle, wrapped in this handkerchief. Ross took out a pair of boots, took a little pen-knife out of his pocket, and tried to cut the tops off; it did not cut well, and he said, "Will you lend me a stronger knife?" which I did, and he cut the tops off; they said, "We will make you a present of these; and as it is unlucky to keep a knife, you may have it." I threw it on the bed; they opened the bundle, and looked at the table-cloth. Ross said, "Biggs, I will lay you a shilling, that when this is washed it will pawn for half-a-crown." Biggs replied, "I will lay you what you like, that it won't pawn for more than 18
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>.; but will you have it cleaned." I said, "I will this afternoon;" they took the boots, and said, "Will you bind them?" I said I had no tape; Ross gave me a 1
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. I went out, and bought some; and if you examine the boots, you will find that one is not finished now; the young man I was living with came in; I thought he looked angry at them, and said, "I cannot finish them now, I will this afternoon." Ross gave me 2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. for binding them, and they went out; after breakfast, my young man said, "Mary, you must go for my brush." I went out, and met Biggs and Ross again. I went and got the brush, and met Ferryman at the door of the Adam and Eve, with a whitewash pail in his hand. I gave him the brush, and he went away. Biggs and Ross were there, and treated me to some gin; we went towards Crawford-street, and they treated me again: they went to another public-house, and got quarrel
<lb/>ling, and I went away; when I got home I felt very ill, from the effects of the liquor, and laid down and fell asleep. Ferryman came home at twelve o'clock, and found me in bed, where I remained till the policeman came and said stolen property was there. I told them to go to the box, and said, "If it is stolen, I know nothing of it." I struck Ross, and said, "You thief, if it is stolen, you have brought us into it." It is the first thing I was ever charged with.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cordwell's Defence.</hi> What Ross states against me is quite false; I had not seen him for nearly three weeks before. I was at home at my mother's at half-past eleven o'clock, and slept in the same room with my father and mother the whole evening, from half-past eleven till seven in the morning.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Biggs's Defence.</hi> On the night the robbery was committed I met Ross; he asked me to go with him; I said I should not, I was going home; he went over the wall, and brought the things out; I saw him come out with the things on his back; these two young men were nowhere near; there was no one but him and me down the mews.</p>

On the 2nd of Nov., the family was out of town—I do not know when they left home—it was on a Thursday—I was left alone in the house—I was at that time acquainted with the prisoner Blackman—the night my master left, a nurse was left in the house in charge of a little boy—I slept alone in the house on Friday night—Blackman lodged in High-street, Kensington, at Mr. Braid's sweetmeat shop—I went there on the Saturday, saw Blackman, and asked her to come and sleep with me that night—she did so—I slept alone on Sunday night—I saw her again on Monday, and went out with her from about eight o'clock till half-past, to see my bro
<lb/>ther—she slept with me on Monday night and Tuesday night—I went with her on Tuesday nignt to her mother's, to tell her that she was going to sleep with me—she also slept with me on Wednesday and Thursday nights—in the coarse of that time I had some conversation with her about a young man who I knew at Lambeth, and on the Thursday she wanted me to go there to see if he was single—it was first spoken of in the day time, and again in the evening—I declined to go, both times—on the Friday night she slept with me—she asked me several times that evening to go to Lambeth to see this young man, and she went with me to her mo

<lb/>gotten it—she asked me a great many times that day to go to Lambeth—I said I could not say, I did not know whether the family would be home—she pressed me several times, and at length I agreed to go—we started about half-past nine—I am sure it was post nine—before we started I secured the house—I</p>

<p>give her tbc keys to mind, because my pocket was very shallow and torn—I locked the kitchen door, the garden gate, and made all secure—we came out at the front gate, and up Victoria-road—when we got pretty near to the top of Victoria-rood, leading to the Kensington-road, she said she must go home for a handkerchief for her neck—I offered several times to lend her mine off my own neck—she said no, she must go home, and she ran away from me, and went home—she said she would not be many minutes before she was back—I followed her to where she lodged in High-street, Kensington, and I saw the prisoner Jones standing at the door of the house—she was in the passage—I saw her brother come along the passage, and Jones said to him that he could fetch the dog—Jones and Blackman's brother then went off together towards the Victoria-road—the female prisoner brought the keys to me, and told me to take them for fear she should lose them; and she went after them, in the same direction—she was not many minutes gone—she then came back, and begged of me again to go to Lambeth—I did not notice that she had any handkerchief on her neck then—she did not go up stairs to any apartment to get one while I was there—her brother and her returned nearly together—I do not know which returned first—I saw nothing more of Jones then—the female prisoner and I then went on to the Victoria-road together, and when I said I would go home, she said what was the use of going home, why not go on to Lambeth?—I said no, I would return home, for I did not like leaving the house—she several times wished me to go on to Lambeth—we then went down the Victoria-road together—when we got to my master's house I saw a man walking about there—I said to her that I did not like the appearance of it—we walked past the house, because I wanted to look at him—she then wished me to go with her and buy some paper in the new town, which is just beyond the back of our house, in the direction we were going—I said no, I would go home—she then wished me to go round the back of the house, not to go in—I said no, I would go in—I then gave her the key, to open the front garden gate—she made a great noise with the keys in opening it—when she had opened it I went in, and went round to the back kitchen door—she followed me—I had the key of the door, and tried to open it with it, but did not succeed—I tried to open it, and then the front bell rang—I gave Black man the key, and told her to try to open the door while I went to see who was at the gate—when I got to the gate there was nobody there—I did not see the person that I had formerly seen walking before the house—I then saw a light up in my master's dressing-room window—I was frightened, and began screaming "Thieves" and "Murder"—Blackman came to me, told me not to make that noise, and asked me what I was screaming about—Mr. Gee, my master's next door neighbour, and a gentleman named Surplim, who lives there, came to my assistance—I went to the back kitchen door; it was then open, and I saw Jones and another man rush out, and go towards the back gate, which was locked—they tried to open it—Jones then came up towards me, and the other one rushed towards the trees, and got out of sight—I told Jones he was the man that came out of the kitchen—he said he had only come to hear the screaming—I pointed him out to Mr. Gee, who took him—I then went for a policeman, and found Dunbar—before I came back Jones had been taken away—I went into the kitchen and found every drawer open—the plate-basket, and every thing on the table, and nurse's boxes, had been broken open, and a desk, (the plate was found up stairs in a bag)—all the things were still in the boxes and drawers, but were all turned over—the cupboard had been opened—in Mr. Windsor's dressing-room one drawer was tried to be broken open—the other drawers were not locked, and the things in them had been disturbed—most of them were found in a strange</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Miss Braid did one night, I think on the Tuesday, but I cannot say for certain—the prisoner made dresses for Miss Braid, who was a friend of mine—Miss Braid is not a dress-maker—she attends in Mr. Braid's shop—I went to Miss Braid's shop to ask the prisoner to sleep with me—she had made dresses for me—she had never worked in the house for me, but the had been there a great many times—she never took tea or any meal with me—when she slept in the house she had supper with me, and tea sometimes—it was during supper or tea that she made the observations about the plate, at different times—when I told her that Jones was the man I had teen with her brother, she said, "If it is, my heavy curse fall upon him," and, if it should prove to be so, it would break her mother's heart—I told Mr. Gee and Mr. Sarplim at first that I had been sleeping by the fire that evening, and had not been out—I had been sleeping before I went out—I pointed to a pillow in the kitchen, and said that I had laid my head upon that, and that I was quite alone—I did not hear the female prisoner contradict me, and tell Mr. Surplim that I had been out—I was not there to hear, because I was gone for the policeman—she did not contradict me while I was there—that I swear—I did not tell the policeman, in the presence of Mr. Gee and Mr. Surplim—that I had gone out for some butter—I said I had gone out for some coffee—that was not true—I have known the young man at Lambeth a great while, but have not spoken to him for a year and a half or two years—I told Blackman that I was acquainted with him—I had not expressed any suspicion that he was married—it was she first proposed going—she said she wondered whether he was married or single, and we would go and see—he had courted me about two years ago—his name is Whitakcr—I had gone out on several evenings with the</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> From the front gate which leads into the back garden—the wall over which the man escaped is the back boundary of the garden—I saw no one but Jones, the female prisoner, and Moore in the garden at that time—I think I can swear positively there were no other persons there; two or three females ran in with us, but no person was there to my knowledge at the time Mr. Surplim and I went in—there were no other persons standing about there—if there was any one on the premises I did not see them—I did not see any other persons in the back garden—persons came up immediately after—no persons had gone in before I seised Jones—I saw none when I went in—Jones ap
<lb/>peared to me to be coming from the back garden-gate—he was walking quietly—Mr. Surplim was perhaps a few feet in advance of me, and Jones came right before us—we were making our way to the back part and met him.</p>

<lb/>logs to me—I had a quantity of wooden paving blocks on board, to carry from Paynes' wharf, Westminster, to Steeds' patent wood wharf, at Redriff—on Wednesday, the 22nd of Nov., when I had to deliver them, I was informed there was a deficiency—in consequence of something I was told, I went on board the
<hi rend="italic">Diver</hi> ballast engine, lying off Hungerford-market, on Saturday, the 2nd of Dec., and saw twenty wooden blocks, found by the policeman—some were entire and some cut up.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Were the blocks piled up in your barge?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—we frequently moor alongside larger flats—a collision sometimes takes place, and the cargo will, in many instances, go over into the larger flat—the prisoners characters are uudeniable.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did not Joseph say they often picked up wood afloat?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, but he denied all knowledge of all except the two pieces—I have known the prisoners for years as highly respectable men.</p>

<p>the Black wall Railway. I was acting as conductor to an omnibus on the 2nd of Dec.—the prosecutrix sat on the off side, next the door—the prisoner clare and a lady were opposite—Clare was nearest the door—Moore was next to the prosecutrix—as Moore had got in at Regent-circus he walked up the side of the
<hi rend="italic">buss</hi> to see who was in it—he got in—we proceeded a little further, and Clare hailed me, and he said I did not look out—I put him in, and made a remark that I thought they were bad characters, as I had had a lady robbed in my
<hi rend="italic">buss</hi> a fortnight before—another lady got in, who got out again at Wind
<lb/>mill-street, and I observed her dress was disordered—she had sat near Moore—the prosecutrix then got in, and during that time Moore shifted up to the end of the omnibus, but afterwards found his way down to her—we proceeded along—I picked up one or two more persons—we went to Temple-bar, and the prosecutrix desired me to put her down in Fleet-street—before we got to Chancery-lane Clare said he would alight—I said, "Very well"—Moore said he would get out, he had but little further to go, and would not trouble me to stop again—the prisoners did not appear to know each other—directly they got out I collared one with my right hand, and the other with my left, and Moore said to Clare, "Take it, take it, you d—d fool"—I asked the prosecutrix if she had been robbed—she at first said no—I said, "Be particular; if you are not robbed I am doing very wrong"—she felt in her pocket and said her purse was gone—I saw Moore's hand pass towards Clare's—I was obliged to release Moore then, because they both struggled very much, and Moore got away; Clare I held very tight—he kicked, and jumped, and did all he could to get away—I held him, hallooed, "Stop thief," and Moore was caught—Moore dropped the purse when he was taken, on the other side of Fleet-street—I took Clare to the station, and saw the purse brought in afterwards—the prosecutrix was sent for, and identified it—the scuffle took place between Temple-bar and the Temple-archway.</p>
