<p>Saturday morning, 31st May last, I was on my beat in Bell-alley, Goswell-street, and saw Bridget Richardson lying on the stairs of the house where I knew Mrs. Tiggell lodged—she was crying and appeared in a very bad state, as if she had been beaten—she had a bruise on her eye—I spoke to her, and while doing so Mrs. Tiggell came out and wanted to know what business I had there—I told her I had business there when "Murder" was called—I had heard "Murder" called—she had me defiance for being in her house, and said she would go to the station-house and report me—I took Richardson to the station-house—she made a communication to me before I took her there, which I reported to my superiors.</p>

<lb/>ble-breasted pin with a pearl head, and a small stone to it, a pair of golds-drops and other articles—I saw them all wrapped up in a piece of rag, which was passed about—I think Collins had it in his possession—he passed it to Tiggell, then it was passed to the others, and I think it went hack again to Collins—I am sure the jewellery was in that piece of rag—the dressing-case was tied up in a black handkerchief—Tiggell took that—we then all four went out, and went to the Portland Arras public-house, in long-lane—Dunn left the box there with the pot-boy—we afterwards went to where Dunn lives in Holborn, the first turning on the right hand hide of the way, opposite the church—I afterwards went with the prisoners to a public-housc (my sister's husband is dead) Dunn and Collins both stopped with Tggell that night in the same house—I saw Dunn go to his work</p>

<p>next morning, and noticed a ring on his finger—I cannot positively say that it was a ring I had seen before—Collins went about three quarters of an hour afterwards—on the Friday morning following I saw Collins and my sister together—I went out with them—I saw her give him a piece of rag similar to the rag in which I had seen the articles wrapped up—he put it into his waistcoat pocket—on the Saturday morning I was sitting on the stairs at my sister's door—my sister had ill-treated me, and I went outside—she called me a very bad word, and abused me—I abused her again—I had heard Mr. Kidd's name mentioned about the things, and I said it was very wrong of her, as she had four children—she directly said if I said anything she would say it was me that stole them—she had pawned all my clothes, and I asked her to give me my box and bonnet, which was all that was left, and I would go away, and would send somebody to take care about what she had done at Mr. Kidd's—with that she flew on my bonnet and my box, and I went and sat on the stairs till the police
<lb/>man came—I had nothing whatever to do with taking the dressing-case—I never saw it till it was brought in by my sister and the other prisoners—Dunn had no ring on his finger when he came in with the bundle—after we had been out walking I saw that he had a ring on—he kept putting it on, and pulling it off again.</p>

<lb/>soner, Wilmot, about two years, by having taken apartments in her house for my son—his widow and children live in her house now—she has been in the habit of visiting me at my master's since Jan. last, and brought my grand
<lb/>daughter to see me—on Sunday evening, the 15th of June, I missed six dessert-spoons; five gravy, and a table-spoon; a soup-ladle, and one pair of asparagus-tongs, from the side-board drawer in the dining-room—it was never locked—I had seen them safe on the 17th of April—I had been to the drawer since, but did not examine the articles—the prisoner had visited me the evening before I missed the articles—she came on the Saturday evening to ask if she could do anything for me—we both went out at the street door together, and parted at the door about a quarter past eight o'clock in the evening—I locked the street door and left nobody in the house—I went towards Sloane-aquare, and she towards Knightsbridge—I was absent from a half to three quarters of an hour, then returned to the house—everything appeared as I had left it—I did not go into the dining-room that night—I missed the articles on Sunday morning, and gave information to the police and to my master—the prisoner called, I think, on Monday morning, to pay me a trifle of money—she had borrowed of me, but I did not tell her of my loss—I gave information to the police on the Wednesday by direction of my master—I waited till he came to town—I do not re
<lb/>member the prisoner calling again till the Saturday evening—I taw her on the Sunday night, and she agreed to come on Monday to help me, which she did—she was assisting me in the drawing-room, and in conse-quence of something which happened I sent for a policeman—while he was gone for, the prisoner went down stairs with me, and wished to go home—I begged her to stay to have lunch—when the policeman came I men
<lb/>tioned the articles I had missed, and she said she had returned and entered the house at the back door with a key, when she found I was gone a sufficient way, and went into the dining-room (having heard me say, when master was robbed before, it was a mercy the plate was safe,) that she took the articles, and she, with another person, erased the crest on those articles which had crests, and pawned them—she offered to go to another room with me and begged the policeman should be sent away—she threw herself entirely on my mercy.</p>

I am a widow, and keep the Black Horse public-home, in Petticoat-lane, Aldgate—the prisoner, Twohy, was in the habit of coming to my house almost every day from the 17th of March up to the 31st of May—he never lodged in my house—he offered me marriage, and said he would not go out without I gave him an answer—I said, "You go away to-night, and I will inquire after your character," and next day I told him I refused his offer—he said he would have my life if I would not marry him—he frequently said that I had robbed him of 40
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., that I had slept with him, and kept him in my arms day and night for six weeks—that was not true—the last time I gave him his answer he said he would give me a worse death than Jane Shore's—in consequence of those threats I went before the Lord Mayor on the 30th of May, and bound him to keep the peace towards me—he got bail on that day—I heard that O'Brien was one of his bail, but I was not there—on Saturday, the 31st of May, about eight o'clock in the evening, Leonard and O'Brien came into my house accompa
<lb/>nied by a tall female—Leonard and O'Brien went into the parlour, and the female went iuto the yard—the parlour is to the right, the tap-room to the left, and the bar in the centre—from the bar I can command a view of both the rooms by leaving the doors open—O'Brien came out of the parlour again before he could hardly have sat down, and asked me to light the gas—I said, "Mr. O'Brien, I do not allow females in the parlour"—the female</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184507070031"/>
<p>was in the yard at that time—she did not go into the parlour—O'Brien returned back to Leonard, and they remained there ten minutes—I did not licrhtthe gas—I heard the yard door open, and I saw the female come in out of the yard, and the two prisoners came out of the parlour—O'Brien and the female went into the tap-room—Leonard asked me for a pot of ale, which I drew—he said he had but 2 1/2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>., and would I make it a pint of half-and-half—I did so, and he took it into the tap-room to O'Brien and the female—my children were at that time playing in the tap-room, and O'Brien began to annoy them by pushing them about—I said, "Mr. O'Brien, I hope you won't annoy my children any more"—he said, "I will, as long as I like, and it won't be long before you, as well as them, shall be annoyed a great deal more"—I then sent the children to bed—after
<lb/>wards Leonard, O'Brien, and the female came out of the tap-room—O'Brien and the female went out—Leonard staid to have a glass of rum with some man at the bar, and then followed them—my servant came down stairs after putting the children to bed—I told her to fasten the parlour shutters—I followed her to speak about something, and smelt the gas in the pas
<lb/>sage, between the bar and parlour doors—I then told her to put the win
<lb/>dow open a bit and sent her across the road for the gas-fitter—she came back and said he was not at home—I took a light in my hand for the purpose of lighting the gas—I put my hand up to turn it on, and could not see the pipe in its proper place—it came down in a branch from the ceiling—I then called out that O'Brien and Leonard must have done it, and called for a cork to put in the fixed part to prevent the gas escaping—I held the candle in one hand and the cork in the other, and stood on a table, and before I had time to put the cork into the fixed part, the light came all around me—it exploded, and I was blown against the window—I made my escape into the street—my face was severely burnt—my ears, neck, hands, shoulders, and part of my arms—my cap and front hair was also burnt, and part of my clothes round the neck—I was taken to the London Hospital, and staid there three weeks—I had seen the gas-pipe safe at half-past seven o'clock, and from that time till I smelt the gas no one went into the parlour but Leonard and O'Brien—I was standing in the bar all that time—nobody could have gone in without my seeing them.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. HORRY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How long did they remain in the parlour after asking you to light the gas?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> About ten minutes—the gas was not lighted—I was getting my supper—it was past nine o'clock when they left my house—I should say rather before half past—I served some customers between that and half-past eight—the gas was lighted in the tap-room and bar—there was no one else in the tap-room but an old man that plays the fiddle about the street—I had sent the children into the tap-room to play—I did not go in—I saw from the bar that O'Brien was pushing them about with his elbow, and annoying them—he did not say they were annoying him, and he would annoy them a great deal more—I had refused to serve him on the previous evening—I remarked the gas-pipe particularly at half-past seven o'clock—I could not help seeing it—I brought a half-pint measure out of the room—I did not go to look at it particularly.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PARRY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was not the gas-pipe so low in the room that a person was obliged to stoop to get under it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No—I never heard any one say so, and it has been fitted three years—I do not have a gas inspector every month or two—I never had the least accident</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184507070032"/>
<p>whatever with the gas—I have had little escapes, which I have sent to the gas-fitter about—I cannot exactly recollect when he saw it last-there has been nothing serious—I was never in the habit of stopping up the gas-pipe with a bit of cork—there was never any hole stopped up with a bit of cork—I went on this occasion to the bar, and took a cork out of a ginger-beer bottle, the nearest I could get—I got it to prevent the further escape—it was not a cork with which I was in the habit of stopping up the pipe—I could feel the gas pouring from the ceiling down towards my hand—the first time I ever saw Twohy was on the 17th of March, licensing day—I did not speak to him that day, but I particularly remarked him in my up-stairs room—I never had a strong regard for him, only the same as another customer—I am civil to any person that pays me—I was not in the habit of going out with him—I had not agreed to marry him—he constantly annoyed me for about six weeks, till I could not stand in my bar for him—I did not go with him to a Roman Catholic priest to get a license—he went, and I fol
<lb/>lowed him, and told the clergyman what he had said, that be would murder me if I did not marry him, and he advised me to bind him to the peace, and send a policeman to see that he committed no violence—I never agreed to marry him so long ago as April—I did not go with him to the brewery where I deal, nor was he ever there with me while ordering my beer—I did not go with him to Mr. Duffy's public-house in Golden-lane—I went on my own business, and he was in the room, but I did not go with him—I went with a friend of mine named Donelly to support a charitable meeting—I have frequently called in the police to take Twohy out of my house, and have said if he annoyed me again I would give him into custody—I did not myself give him into custody on this charge—I instructed the police to take him on the Monday morning as I left the hospital on Saturday—I have heard that he is since married—I heard it the day I left the hospital, from a policeman at the Mansion-house—I have lived in my house three years—my back way leads into Alderman Johnson's yard—there was no explosion in my bouse a short time since.</p>
