On Tuesday afternoon, the 31st of Dec, I was passing along Red Cross-street, from half-past four to a quarter to five o'clock—I stopped at Mr. Williamson's to ask the price of a pair of Blucher boots—whilst speaking to the boy belonging to the shop I saw both the prisoners—it appeared great deal of notice of me—after I priced the pair of boots I looked round and saw them close to my arm—I saw Lovell touch Davis, who imme
<lb/>diately went'away, and went to the corner of Jewin-street, to the chemist's shop—they looked at me very hard—I had suspicion, and went a little further, and stood looking in the shop of Mr. Reeve, a pawnbroker—I saw Davis come by and look into a currier's shop, a door or two beyond Mr. Williamson's, and imme
<lb/>diately go back again—Lovell then went by, and came back again—they went backwards and forwards several times, sometimes together, and sometimes alone—five or ten minutes after first noticing them the prosecutor was engaged taking his shoes in from outside the shop—at last only one parcel was left hanging on the line—I saw davis go by, and, as I thought, untwist them, but when I went up I found part of the string on the nail, and it had been apparently cut—he placed one hand on the boots, and the other on the top—immediately went and said to the prosecutor, "You have lost some boots," and called, "Stop thief!"—Lovell was about fifteen yards from Davis when be went up and touched the boots, about three doors off—he could see what Davis was about—he made motions with his hands to him, and shook his head—when I gave the alarm they both ran away—they turned down Jewin-street, and into Jewin-crescent—Davis was stopped in Aldersgate-street—I</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184501060013"/>
<p>did not see Lovell till the policeman had Davis in custody it another shoe-shop in Aldersgate-street—we turned down Long-lane, Lovell fol
<lb/>lowed on the opposite side, and when we got near the station he went away in the direction of St. John-street—next day I saw him at Guild-hall, lurking about the outside of the office—I mentioned who he was to the officer, and he was taken directly—I am quite certain he is the same man who was with Davis.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Davis.</hi> I did not take the boots, and had nothing to do with them; I was running down Aldersgate-street, when the mob collected and took me; I was never in Red Cross-street at all.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Witness.</hi> I was looking at them from ten minutes to a quarter of an hour, having suspicion of them.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Lovell.</hi> I was out of work, and went down to the docks that morning with Davis, thinking I might get a day's work; I was with him till twelve o'clock in the day; I then left him, and when the boots were stolen I was up stairs along with my mother having my tea, from four till five o'clock.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Witness.</hi> It was half-past four or a quarter to five o'clock when I first saw them—Davis was taken to the station before it struck five o'clock—it was then that Lovell went as far as the station, and went away.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Lovell. Q.</hi> If you saw me on the other side of the way why not give me in charge?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was a thing I never did before to give a person in charge, and I did not understand it—Davis was the person who actually took them—I did not give it a thought till I said to the policeman, "I saw that man in company with the other over night."</p>

On the 28th of Dec., at five o'clock in the morning, I was passing in High-street, Kensington, and saw the prisoner Garlick walking up and down in front of Mr. Oak's shop—I lost sight of him for about two minutes, and then saw both the prisoners leave the gateway, two doors from the prosecutor's shop—Garlick had a large bundle tied up in a blue handkerchief—Laws went into the prosecutor's shop, and Garlick turned up Church-street—I stopped him, and asked what he had got—he said meat which he had bought at Newgate-market—I said, "That won't do for me"—he resisted very much, but I took him to the station, and found it contained a leg and a saddle of mutton and two pounds of beef steaks—I then returned to Mr. Oak's shop, and said to Laws, "I want you about that meat"—he said, "I don't know anything about it"—I called up Mr. Oak, who was in bed—he came to the station, and claimed the meat, and compared another leg of mutton, which he brought from the shop, with that leg—there is no communication with the gateway to Mr. Oak's shop the back way—Laws is Mr. Oak'i servant—I saw him open the shop that morning—nobody could get into the shop without his assistance.</p>

<p>down her bosom, and when I got up into the room, I put my hand into her bosom and took from it this sleeve of a frock, containing fourteen half-crowns, which I produce—I observed a work-bench there, and saw upon it a lighted candle, with some apparatus—there were two earthen-ware jars, with a wooden trough placed between them—these five half-crowns which I produce I found on the same work-bench near where the apparatus was—there were six, but Mr. Field has had one of them—I also produce four more, in a similar state, in different parcels, and eight more in another parcel, all on the same bench—I gave the apparatus into the care of Seward, another constable, and desired the male prisoner to be brought up—Cole brought him up—I was in the act of removing some of the bottles, and the apparatus, to the other end of the bench, to prevent the prisoner doing any mischief—he put his hand over my shoulder, picked up a bottle, and smashed it over the table, the contents of it burnt my hands, and also Cole's—it was some burning liquid, but I did not ascertain what it was—Cole pushed him back, to prevent his breaking any more of the things, and I saw him put his hand between his waist band and apron, pull out this black bag, and give it to the little girl, say
<lb/>ing, "Stash it, Annie"—the instantly put it down her bosom, and begged to be allowed to go to the water-closet, or else she should dirty herself—I took the black bag from her bosom directly, and produce it—it contained twenty-two half-crowns, and forty shillings, but two of the shillings I how given to the authorities of the Mint—I secured the prisoner, and have the articles up to Seward—I then proceeded down stairs, and when there, I saw the little girl endeavour to conceal her hand in her frock—I seized her by the hand, and took from it these three counterfeit half-crowns which I produce—I then saw Cole seize her, and take something from her hand—the prisoners were both taken into custody, and conveyed to the station—when I first saw the male prisoner on the stairs, he was without his coat, and had his shirt sleeves tucked up.</p>

<lb/>silvering—the surface of the coins is silver, produced by the electro
<lb/>gal-vanic process—I am sufficiently familiar with that process to be able to state that—here are thirty-eight counterfeit shillings—there were forty when I first saw them—I gave two of them to Mr. Smee—I believe the half-crown was given to him by Brannan—one of the coins produced by Cole is in the state in which it first comes out of the battery, as the apparatus is generally called—a great number of the coins have not un
<lb/>dergone the process—they are composed of Britannia metal, which is gene
<lb/>rally a mixture of tin and antimony—the whole of the coins are counter
<lb/>feit, and are all in different stages of the process—here are two galvanic batteries, made after the construction recommended by Mr. Smee—when first saw these batteries, each of them contained fluid—these are what Cole pointed out as jars—by my direction the fluid was taken out of these two jars and placed in two bottles, which I afterwards numbered "1" and "2"—the other bottles produced by Seward also marked "3, 4, 5, and 6"—they were delivered up to me at the office of the Solicitor of the Mint, on Saturday, the 28th of Dec, for the purpose of having experiments made on them, and on the Monday following I placed them in the hands of Mr. Smee, who, in my presence, made experiments on the fluids contained in the bottles "3, 4, and 5," and we found that they con
<lb/>tained what had the appearance of silver, by the test—I also saw two basins containing what I believe to be sand and water, the contents of which, by my direction, were placed in this quart bottle—I do not know what experiments Mr. Smee made on the contents of No. 1 and No. 2—the whole of the articles produced I believe to be complete for the purpose of performing the process of electro-silvering—the electro
<lb/>silvering would</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184501060025"/>

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. LAWRENCE</hi>. The original bill was accepted by Thomas Ratley, and indorsed, among others, by Samuel Long and Joseph Donovan—I do not recollect the address of Mr. Ratley on the original bill—on receiving the bill, I advanced the 300

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Have you seen the prisoner since this transaction, on the subject of that bill?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I have—previous to his being taken into custody he called at the office, and wished to know if the com

<lb/>ments, as he had had a quarrel with the parties—(that was after the bill was noted as dishonoured—I am afraid the answer will bear rather hard against the prisoner, and it is not the object of the company to press againit him)—I said, "So I have heard, for some of them have been here;" and he said, "Why the fact of the matter is, I wrote all the indorsements but one myself."</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> Was there not a proposition, that if 50

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Decidedly not—there was no proposition whatever about 50

There are four partners; Mr. George Drake Sewell is one; we carry on business as haberdashers and warehousemen in two or three houses connected, in Compton-street, Soho. The prisoner was in our service as principal clerk. On the 18th of Dec, I delivered to him this check—(
<hi rend="italic">looking at it</hi>)—this is my signature—when I gave him that check I knew that Mr. Sewell had some rent to pay to Mr. Gardiner his landlord—I did not know them exact amount at that time—the prisoner told me that he had an appoint
<lb/>ment with Mr. Gardiner at eleven o'clock to settle the rent—he presented the check to me, and I signed it—I put the name of the house to it—he had the check from me for the purpose of paying the rent—I do not know that I told him what to do with it—he said it was for the purpose of pay
<lb/>ing Mr. Gardiner's rent—it was in blank as to the sum—it is the common printed form of check—no date was filled in—it was crossed "and Co." when he gave it to me, and the number was filled in—we draw our checks by numbers—on his presenting it to me I signed it, and gave it to him again—I have no recollection of saying anything to him, or he to me—the amount of rent had not been ascertained between the parties—the check was for the special purpose of paying the rent.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was anything said by either of you that appropriated the check for that purpose?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He said that Mr. Sewell had not arrived, and asked whether I would give him a check on the house, and he would exchange it for his private account when he returned—(Mr. Sewell keeps a private account, and the rent was due on his private account)—that passed at the time he presented the check to me, and on that I signed it, and gave it him back again—I have no recollection of anything more passing.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Before he went away from you that morning, had you any conversation with him of any kind about the amount of the check, or what he was to do with it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, none whatever—he re
<lb/>turned in the afternoon, but I did not see him—I did not see him again till he was arrested—he had no authority from me to obtain notes for the check—it was not in the course of his duty to do so—he had no authority on that check, except what was derived from the conversation I have stated—the words "Pay in notes," on the check, are in the prisoner's writing—he had no authority from me to put any such writing on the check, or to get the check cashed at all—I find the words "One Hundred Pounds" filled in as the amount of the check—I did not give him autho
<lb/>rity to fill in that or any other sum, except for the payment of the rent, and even for the payment of the rent, I gave him no authority to receive cash for the check—the date, "18th of Dec," is filled in in the prisoner's handwriting, and the"£ 100" in the left-hand corner is also in his handwriting.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> The check is numbered, in addition to the date?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—that agrees with the number in the margin—it is the practice of our house not to destroy any check, although it is not applied to the purpose for which it was originally drawn—in case a check is drawn in error, we destroy it—if a check is drawn for a different amount to what it ought to have been, I should immediately destroy it—I</p>

<lb/>quence of information I obtained on Saturday, the 28th of Dec, I gaye the prisoner into the custody of Cronin, the policeman—I found him at the corner of Rathbone-place, Oxfords street—he appeared surprised when I gave him into custody, and said ought to have sent to him before I gave him into custody—I told him I bad done so—I had sent to his house two or three times—I was then aware that Trowsan had been sent to him on the 26th—he asked me if Mr. Sewell was at home—I said he was—he said he should wish to see him—I accompanied him with the officer to the house of business in Compton-street—Mr. Sewell was not there when we arriveds but some time afterwards he came in, and, in my presence, he said, "On, Bateman, what have you been doing? you have filled up that blank check, not got the money"—he said he had, as he bad a right so to do, having 60
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 70
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. salary due to him—Mr. Sewell appealed to me, to know if that. correct—I said I thought not; I believed not more than 15
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 167. I will due to him—Mr. Sewell asked him what he had done with the money—he said he had spent it all, he had not a shilling; and said to Mr. Sewell, "I hope you will forgive me; I will give you all my furniture which cost me 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., if you will forgive roe"—I have since looked through the books, to ascertain what is due to him—I have the books here—they are in the handwriting of a clerk named Anderson, who has left our employ.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-cxamined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. WILKINS</hi>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> The prisoner was your ma
<lb/>naging clerk, was he not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He was our principal clerk—he had the paying of the other clerks their wages, by the authority of one of the firm—I should say blank checks were never given him for that purpose—none of our assistants are paid by check—he never paid them except in my presence, and then in cash, which he got off the desk before my face—he never had checks for that purpose—a check was always drawn for one amount of 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 400
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., signed by one of the firm, and sent to the bankers' for change—the prisoner sometimes got it—he, no doubt, filled up the amount—it was his place to fill up checks, and to bring them to one of the firm afterwards—this is the only charge we have against the prisoner.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> I think you say the prisoner on no one occasion had a blank check delivered to him for the purpose of paying wages?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Never to my knowledge—when he filled up checks for the purpose of enabling either himself or any other clerk to receive the money at the banker's, hi never wrote "and Co." across the check—he was acquainted with our course of business in drawing checks—when the money was for our house, be never wrote "and Co." across the check—he always did so on the last Thursday, which is our settling day—it was then his duty to write "and Co." across checks in paying our accounts—I should say the words "and Co." are written, so that the check shall go direct to the party it is in
<lb/>tended for, or through the hands of a banker—that is the intention of it, no doubt—those checks would be drawn for accounts, for goods bought—it would then be the prisoner's duty to draw checks with the words "and Co." across, but on no other occasion—if we have money to pay any creditors, the checks are filled up with "and Co." written across—I never gave the</p>

<p>prisoner any authority to fill in the words "one hundred pounds" in the check in question, and to receive the cash, or to write the words "Pay in notes"—only two of the partners draw checks, Mr. Sewell and Mr. Bacon.</p>
