On Wednesday the 12th of June, I was at work at the back of Nos. 4 and 5 Warehouses—the prisoner, who is a custom-house officer, was there—there were some hogsheads of tobacco being rolled out of the back shed—one that came out was rather open in the head-part round the rim—I am confident there was no tobacco hanging out of it—as soon as it was stopped, and the men that had turned it out went back for another hogshead, the prisoner made a start at the hogshead, and took a handful of tobacco out of the end of it, turned himself round quickly, and put it under the tail of his coat—he kept both his hands behind him—I directly told Smith of it.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> You saw him take the hand of tobacco?

<lb/>action took place—he said he had picked up the tobacco for the benefit of the revenue—he did not say he took it out of a crack in the cask.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did be say he saw it hanging out of the cask?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, he said, "I picked it up for the protection of the revenue"—I will not swear he did not say he saw the tobacco banging out of the cask—I do not recollect it, I may have forgotten it, but I do not believe he said it—I have known him there fifteen years and upwards—he went voluntarily before the Magistrate—I did not take him into custody—I gave him the privilege of meeting me at the police-office—the tobacco was taken from within the docks.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How long was the conversation going on in which he said anything about picking it up?

I was going along Blomfield-street about two o'clock on Friday morning, the 28th of June, and saw the prisoner in a livery-stable yard, against the large gates belonging, I believe, to a person named Fox—I heard him first trying the gate—I asked who was there—no one answered—I looked through the side gate, through some railings, and saw the prisoner retreating back to the side of the wall—I saw him go up some steps on to the roof of the stable, on to the top of the roof at. the side, and along the top of it—he then threw something from his hands into the burial-ground of the Catholic-chapel—when he got to the end there, he jumped down, and I lost sight of him—I am sure he is the man—I afterwards found him in the privy of the area of No. 16, at the back of Finsbury-circus—that was between three and four, about an hour and a quarter after I had seen him going over the roofs—he said he had been asleep there—I did not go to where I saw him throw something—Mason, another officer, was there.</p>

<lb/>tention to his being present—the counsel for the Company said they could not bring any charge against him and declined calling him as a witness—if cotton was placed into mats for the purpose of delivery I should say it must be done by more than one man—they would not have the warrant in their hands at the time they packed it—the warrant is copied from a book which has the weight—the weight is ascertained by the prisoner himself—I have the book</p>

I am a preferable labourer at the Docks, and was acting in the warehouse, No. 6, on Saturday the 25th of May—the prisoner was the foreman there—at the commencement of the day I was ordered to press the bales of cotton—I continued there till about two, when he ordered me to the back of the warehouse, to assist in filling mats with cotton—I took a portion of it out of the original bales, to put into the mats—he saw ne do it, and directed me to do it—I put what I took out of the bales into mats, suspended to receive it—there was a man to tread it down close into the mats—it was sewed at the top, and removed to another part of the floor—I cut one bale of good cotton open by direction of the prisoner—I assisted to take the whole of it out of that bale to put it into the mat—the prisoner did part of it—I could not say whether he remained there the whole time—the cotton is always in fakes in the original bales—he saw the flakes put in—I made no observa
<lb/>tion to him while it was going on—he told me there was an onto that he should leave the Docks and go to the town warehouse—he remained at the Docks the whole day, on the 25th—but I did not see him on Monday the 27th—I gave information of this on the Wednesday morning—I had thought more about it on the Sunday, and on Monday still had some doubt there was something wrong—on the Tuesday the goods were delivered, and 1 saw one which I thought weighed 3cwt., was marked "lcwt. lqr. 271bs.," (that was afterwards found on Hamilton's premises,) and I gave information the first thing on Wednesday morning, before I went into the Docks—I am not quite certain of the number of the mat—I do not remember that I pointed that bale out.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> To whom did you give information?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Mr. Knight, the superintendent—I never saw sound cotton packed in mats before—I thought it might be legal, that the foreman might have a proper order,. but the difference in the weight of the package increased my suspicion—the weight was not put on the package while I was there, to my knowledge—I never said anything to one Collins about the prisoner.</p>

<hi rend="italic">police-constable T</hi> 44.) I am stationed near Perry
<lb/>vale, in Middlesex. On the 17th of June, near six o'clock in the evening, I was on duty near the Grand Junction Canal, and saw the prisoner in a barge there—I was spoken to by Mr. Cogden, who charged the prisoner with steal
<lb/>ing a fishing-rod and line—I told the prisoner he was charged with stealing a rod and line, and he must go with me—(he was not in the barge at that time—directly I had come up on the towing-path, he had swung himself on shore by the shaft of the barge—there was another man with the barge)—he said he would see meb—first, and immediately struck me several times with his fist, and forced me into the canal—he laid hold of me bodily, and pushed me in before him—he went in with me, and forced my head underneath the water, in the middle of the canal—the water is nearly seven feet deep there, as near as I can judge—I could not stand—I was out of my depth—I was obliged to swim ashore—he did not keep me in that state a great while—Wallis, who was standing on the opposite side of the canal, hallooed out to him, and on that he let me go, and I let him go; and as soon as I did so, he walked out of the water before I could get ashore—I was deeper in the canal than he was—he forced me further out, and forced me under—when I got ashore I again attempted to take him into custody—he was very violent, struck me several times, and likewise kicked me on the thigh—I have no doubt he intended to kick me somewhere else—assistance was procured, and he was secured—I was in my full uniform.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you let him go, or did he let you go?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I let him go first—if I had not let him go, I doubt not but he would have drowned me—he did not tell me that Mr. Cogden had been tree passing—nothing of the kind passed in my presence—I know the spot where the rod and line were left—I am not aware that a person fishing in that spot is a trespasser—I see a great many persons fishing there every day—I am not aware that it is against the orders of the company—the prisoner works a boat on the canal—I am not aware that he is in the company's service—I struck the prisoner, not violently—I had no chance to do so—I lost my staff—he did not lose a great quantity of blood, a very small quantity—I did not see his shirt afterwards—he jumped on board the boat again, and got away from me, and he took off his shirt in the boat before he got to the station—he had no jacket on, only a smock-frock—I saw some blood on his chest—I understand Wallis has been discharged by the company since this affair—I will swear the water is more than four feet deep at this place—I was up to my neck, standing upright, and then he forced me under, and I was deeper—I am five feet eight inches high—he did not say that Mr. Cogden was a trespasser, and he had taken the rod and line to leave in some place for the company.</p>

<lb/>ately after, in the barge which was going along—I followed, and called out to him, and begged him to give up the rod, and treated it as a joke, saying, I was not of an age to run after him—with oaths he declared he should keep it unless I stood so much beer—I followed him I think nearly two miles-—I then obtained Keeler's assistance, and told him he had stolen my rod and line—I heard Keeler tell him he must come with him—he swore he would not be taken, and immediately attacked the police
<lb/>man, and after a short struggle bore him into the middle of the canal, and endeavoured to get his head under the water—I turned round to see where I could throw my coat, and go to the policeman's assistance, and on looking back, found the policeman and the prisoner both coming out of the canal—he walked or struggled out in some manner, either by walking and swimming, but I was very much agitated from the situation he was in—he was up to his arm-pits, and the prisoner was endeavouring to get his head underneath—they got ashore nearly together—the prisoner again attacked the policeman with his fists, struck him, kicked at him, and endeavoured to kick him in * * * *—the whole time using the most threatening and horrible language—after receiving several blows, the policeman took out his staff, and struck him over the head—I assisted him, and the prisoner was secured—I saw Wallis on the opposite side of the canal.</p>

<lb/>clined for sleep—she jumped out of bed and seized my trowsers—I jumped out and seized hold of them also—she commenced striking me with her fist, and pulled me towards the passage—it is a long passage—I there saw two soldiers—they came in but did nothing—she kept beating me and pulling me along the passage, trying to get me towards the street door—I kept hold of my trowsers all the time—she got me to the front door, and there got pos
<lb/>session of my trowsers, and bundled me out—I had nothing on but my shirt—I went up to the door again, and she knocked me down—I went up again and was knocked down again—they then closed the door, but I rushed at it and burst it in, and gained possession of my trowsers again in the passage—I found her in the passage with my trowsers in her hand—I cannot say whether she was doing anything with them, but I seized hold of her again in the passage—she had some instrument in her hand—I do not know whether it was a knife or what it was, and she said, "I will cut your bhands off"—in the meantime the soldier (Moore) said, "Give it him"—she then cut the fob off with some instrument she had in her hand—I retained posses
<lb/>sion of the fob with the money in it, and I was pulling away at the trowsers at the same time—she also took a piece out of my ear with the instrument, and likewise made a wound in my wrist, which has not healed yet—she was beating me all the time—she then got me into the back yard and kept bea
<lb/>ting me there very violently—a man in a blouse (not Moore) came, and while we were struggling a half-crown and some halfpence dropped from my fob which was in my hand—she said to the man. "Why don't you assist me?"—he picked up the money that fell down and went away, and the prisoners also—they all went away together leaving me in possession of the trowsers—I then went into the room where it occurred, and put on my things—a police
<lb/>man came in and told me something—I went with him to a public-house in Orchard-street, and gave Woods in charge.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Woods.</hi> He wanted to pull me about in an indecent manner, and almost strangled me; he put threepence on the table, and I said I was not going to bed with him for that.
