<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I received it from the prisoner, but cannot say whether he took it back; probably he did—I am sure I received it from him, because I knew him previously—it took me two or three minutes to sign it—I had to refer to a book—the prisoner had to come to a window—three or four people can stand at the window—I had no conversation with the party—it was merely handed in at the window, signed after looking at the book, and handed out again—I got the order on the 21st from the prisoner, and gave it to the pri
<lb/>soner—I recollect that, it being the second order—I particularly noticed that, because I knew him—I knew him the first name—I looked at him more the second time, because he came for the same quality of wine—people often come for the same quality of wine—he was there about the same time on the 21st, about two or three minutes—I had no conversation with him.</p>

On the 28th of Nov., in conseqence of a communication made to me, I stopped Elston, the porter, at the west-end of the Docks, just inside the Dock wall—he had a basket and twenty-two samples of wine—I took him to the guard-house—he only remained there a few minutes—he gave me a description—of the party who gave him the order—I did not know him by description—I sent Elston forward to the Dock Coffee-house, and went there myself, but could not find the prisoner—on the 9th of Dec. I went to a public-house on Tower-hill, and saw the prisoner—I told him I was an officer belonging to the London Docks, and said, "You have lodged some orders at the east-vault of the London Docks for samples of wine, in the name of Dingwell and Co., and they turn out to be forgeries"—he said, "i know nothing about them"—Walker, the cooper, was standing at the door of the room, and said to him, "Is this the man?" meaning the prisoner—he said, "Yes"—the prisoner then said, "Oh, I recollect now you mention the name; I had the orders from Dunks"—I said, "I know nothing about Dunks; these two men, walker and Middleton, say they drew the wines for you on the 21st and 26th of Nov., and you were present"—he said, "Oh yes, I know these two young men; they did draw the wine" I said, "There are four forged orders lodged"—he said, "I lodged no orders, the porters lodge them; I had two orders from Dunks—only two"—he said so two or three times.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner.</hi> I never said so.

<lb/>tioned several places where he thought I could find him—I had been to the places he mentioned, as Croft's, in the Strand, the Dock Coffee-house, and a coffee-house in the Minories—I searched him, and in his pocket-book found some blank tasting orders, and a paper of the particulars of wines lying in the London and in St. Katharine's Docks—they were the same sort of orders, and might be filled up in the way those are which have been produced.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Are they such orders as wine agents have?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—the Company furnish them—they can be obtained on application—if. the person says he is in the wine trade, they give them—the prisoner said, "Dunks is in the wine trade; I have known him three months;" and he</p>

On the 16th of Dec., about ten o'clock at night, I was on duty in Petticoat-lane, which is on the boundary between the City and the County—I was in the City, and saw the prisoner there with a bundle on his back—I followed him—he looked back, saw me following him, and crossed the road—I pursued him—he dropped the bundle as soon as I got close to him, and ran away—I ran after him, and took him in Bell-lane—a scuffle took place, and we fell, I on the top of the prisoner—while on the ground, some woman said, "Shame! the man will kill the policeman; take his part"—I saw the prisoner take a knife out of his pocket after he got up—he had done nothing before that—I saw him put his hand into his pocket, after a person came to assist me on pretence—he got the prisoner on his legs—then he let go of him and walked away—it was then I saw him put his hand into his pocket, and I felt him
<hi rend="italic">jobbing</hi> at my body immediately after that—I defended myself with my arm—I was standing at the time, and endeavoured to protect myself by my arm, and I received eight wounds on my arm—I am quite sure they were inflicted by the prisoner—they could not have been inflicted by anybody else—I cried out at the time, "He is stabbing me"—we had a struggle after he stabbed me —I threw him down again—he fell on his belly, and I on his back—I held his collar, with my legs round him, and M'Michen came up and secured him—I got no further stabbing while on the ground—we were standing up at the time—I thought if I had nor thrown him down, I should not have taken him at all, or got away from him—I went to Mr. Mear's, the surgeon's, and had my arm dressed, and since then to Mr. Child—I have not been able to go on duty since—my arm is still disabled.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PARNELL.</hi>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What was the beginning of the tustle?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I collared him—I did not take my staff out—I sprung my rattle—I am quite certain I did not draw my staff and strike him over the head—I did not draw it at all—the prisoner tried to draw it—he fell from my taking hold of his collar—after we had had the scuffle he fell undermost—he attempted to get away, and I threw him down and fell on him to pre
<lb/>vent his getting away—when he got up I saw him put his hand into his pocket—I do not know what he took out—I could not see—we were both stand
<lb/>ing up when he struck me—he had not a chance of striking when I knelt on him—nobody else held him—some one came up, but I would not let him take hold of him—I expect his accomplice got hold of him before he got on his legs—he did not have hold of him before he got the knife out—as soon as he got up he left him and went away—he came back again when I got him down and offered to assist me, but I would not allow him—he first said, "I will assist you, policeman"—he took hold of his collar and I took hold of his arm—he took hold of his right arm, and as soon as the prisoner got up he went away—the other man did not take hold of me at all—he did not touch me——there they were crying "Shame"—that was at the prisoner—I am sure of that—they said they would take the policeman's part—none of them offered to assist me—they crowded round, not very close—we</p>

<p>had plenty of room—I bled a good deal—the blood ran down my arm into my hand—when the other constable came up I was lying on the prisoner, and he was lying with his belly on the ground—I do not know whether he was nearly fainting—I was—I had hold of his left collar when he was striking at me—I did not attempt to take hold of his right arm, or I should have lost him altogether—I could only hold him by one arm and defend myself with the other—I did not attempt to take anything out of his right hand, because I had no strength in this arm at all—I did not attempt to see what he had in his hand, or take it from it, because I was not going to cur my fingers—I did not search him afterwards—I have my coat here</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT.</hi>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How were his arms; when lying down on his belly would he have his right arm at liberty; could he have cast anything from it in the state he was in?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I think his accomplice came and took the knife from his—he had an opportunity of passing the knife to him, for he came close to him, and I said, "Stand off, or you will get yourself into trouble"—he stooped, and wanted to assist him up—here is my coat—there are six cuts in it—I have one on my wrist, (so that he might have cut me below the cuff,) and one on the bone of my thumb—the deepest wound, I believe, is the one nearest the elbow.</p>

I was on duty on Wednesday night, the 16th of Dec., in Bell-lane, Spitalfields—about tem o'clock that night I observed a disturbance there—I went up to see what it was, and found the prisoner lying on his belly in the middle of the street, and Pettet on his back—I had my light on at the time—pettet said, "Take care of him, he has stabbed me"—I saw that Pettet was wounded—I saw the blood running from the tips of his fingers—I secured the prisoner and took him to the sta
<lb/>tion-house after assisting Pettet up—I searched him and found nothing on him—I searched the place where the struggle took place, and found nothing there—there was a fall of snow in the morning—I remained there all night and searched again, but found nothing.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> He was kneeling on him when you came up, was he not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He was lying down on the top of him—they were both stretched at full length—they appeared both exhausted—the prisoner was not fainting—there were between thirty and forty people there—it was a dark place, and disreputable too—I remained there after coming off duty at the station-house at six o'clock, till day-light, and searched but found nothing—I was not there at the time the man was attempting to rescue the prisoner, and pretending to assist Pettet.</p>

On the evening of the 16th of Dec., at eleven o'clock, Pettet called on me—from what he stated I examined his left arm, and found it had been previously dressed by a surgeon—on re-moving the dressing I discovered he had received eight punctured wounds in The fore-arm, one about an inch below and on a line with the inner part of the elbow, which I considered important as regards its depth—a second was situated about the middle of the inner side of the fore-arm, which I considered still more important, form the injury sustained by the nerve which supplies the inner part of the arm—there was another wound over the anterior surface of the wrist, another on the ball of the thumb, which I considered important from their locality, being situated over the principal arteries of the hand—they all appeared to have been done by some small-pointed sharp instrument, such as a penknife—he has been under my care till the present time—the wounds have healed, but he still suffers form loss of sensation in the inner part of the</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Only one of them seemed to be a serious wound?

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What was the depth of the wound?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> The one by the elbow was a quarter of an inch deep—it was important, because the artery runs along there—it would require no great force to make the wounds—it had to penetrate a thick coat, an under-coat, and a flannel jacket, which probably broke the force of the world</p>

<lb/>lico. On the 20th of Dec., at two o'clock in the morning, I was coming along the Bayswater-road—I made a false step and fell down—I had drank but very little—I was quite sober and collected—I had changed my um
<lb/>brella just before in Stanhope-place, and stepping down a higher pave
<lb/>ment than I thought it was, I fell—I saw no person near me till the prisoner came up—she took hold of my right hand, put her left hand into my trowser's pocket, and took six half-crowns out—I could not catch her with my right hand, as I had my umbrella, but I caught her with my left hand—another female took hold of her, and pulled her and me across to the park rails—i called "Police!" and when the other female heard the policeman coming she ran away—I still held the prisoner, and the policeman came and took her—the prisoner threw down two half-crowns, and two more were found the next day—I am sure the prisoner put her left hand in my right-hand trowser's pocket, and took the money out—I had not sufficient strength to hold her with my right hand, having the umbrella, but I held her with my left.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PAYNE.</hi>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you say you held her hand in your pocket with the six half-crowns in it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I could not hold her fast enough to keep her hand in my pocket—four of the half-crowns were found on her—she threw down two of my half-crowns when she got to the station—I have nothing to do with what other money she put down—she took six half-crowns out of my pocket, and one marked "R.C.A."—I said before the Magistrate that one was marked with three letters, and I stated what they were.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you not swear before the Magistrate, "The Money was what I re
<lb/>ceived for my wages—I noticed there were some letters on one of the half-crowns?"
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, sir, and I swore to the half-crown—it was not at a sub

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What I ask you is this, did you not say. "One of the half-crowns produced by the last witness is mine; I know it by the letters 'R.C.A.' stamped on it?"
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> When the half-crown was produced to me I knew it, but I was not asked before what letters were on it—I told the policeman that took the prisoner what letters were on it—the Magistrate never asked me such a thing—I had been at work till eleven o'clock at night at Carlton Villa, mending an oval looking-glass frame—I then went to the Marlbrough tavern, and staid there till five minutes before twelve—there were three of us—we had four pints of 8

<p>afterwards—I then went home with one of my shopmates to No. 30; Praed-street—I stood at the door I dare say an hour—I recollect it was a very wet morning, or else I should not have taken an umbrella with me—I did not have anything to drink—I had left my friend, perhaps, ten minutes before I tum
<lb/>bled down—I neither met a man nor a woman, to the best of my knowledge, from the time I left my friend till the prisoner came up to me—I had six half-crowns in my pocket, and the prisoner put her hand into my pocket—I could not hold her sufficiently firm to prevent her taking her hand out of my pocket, and her companion dragged me across to the railing—her companion never touched me, but she assisted the prisoner in pulling me.</p>

<lb/>ing, I was going up Rupert-Street three men rushed out of a gateway, one of the struck me a blow on the chest and knocked me down, two of them fell on me-the prisoner was one of them, I caught hold of him, called "Police," and held him till a policeman came—I do not know which of them knocked me pocket—I was only struck, by one—while on the ground I felt a hand in my pocket—I lost half-a-crown, which I am quite sure I had in my pocket five minutes before—I gave the prisoner in charge, and went to the station—he was there searched in my presence, and several half-crowns and some silver were found on him.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALANTINE.</hi>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> where did you get the half-crown from?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> An old school-fellow of mine, named Harrisson, who for
<lb/>merly lived at chatham, gave it me a about twenty minutes before—I met him in the Haymarket—I did not ask him for the half-crown—he asked me how I was getting on—I said, "Very badly"—he asked me if I had had anything to eat—I said, "Not much" and he gave it to me—I have not brought him here—I am a law-writer, and have been engaged by White and Co., of Searle's-place, about five months ago—I have not been doing anything since that—before that I was in the North Cornwall Railway-office, getting up their books of reference—I was formerly in the police for four years within six or seven week—I left about seven months ago—I was dismissed for leavening my division without giving the required notice—I had committed some trivial offences before, but nothing against my character—I had seen the prisoner on this evening before, in a coffee-house close to Newport-market; about half-past two o'clock in the morning I was getting a cup of coffee, and paid 2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. of it—I had 5
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. at the coffee-house—I met my friend who gave me the half-crown about half-past three—I told him I had nothing to eat ordring—I did not mention the coffee—I had nothing at the coffee-shop but coffee—I bottom keep the coffee-shop—I mentiones to some persons there that I had no money—I did not ask them to give me any—the prisoner came in while I was there—he was not drunk at the station-house—he had been drinking when he came to the coffee-shop, but was not drunk—I did not see him pull out any money—I saw no money belonging to him—he might have had It without my noticing it—I live at 21, Princes-row, Newport-market—I heard the prisoner ask where he could get some gin—I did not jump up and off we to take him to place where he could get some—I said I was going to</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184701040028"/>
<p>the Haymarket—I did not say I was going to the Haymarket and would accompany him—a young man said he could get some in the Haymarket—I said I was going to the Haymarket—I went to a house at the corner of Jermyn-street with him—there was a crowd round the door—they refused to open it—we then went to a house at the corner of coventry-court—he called for 2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. worth of rum—I did not have any—I went with him, because the land-lord of the coffee-shop had asked me to get him a quartern loaf—he gave me 1s, to get it with—when we were in the public-house the prisoner called for two
<hi rend="italic">pickwicks</hi>, a pint of half-and-half, and 2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. worth of rum—they came to 7
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>.—I paid it out of the landlord's shilling, as I could not get any bread—I don't know how the landlord was to have his 7
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. back—that did not occur to me when I paid the money—I did it to prevent a disturbance—after leaving the prisoner I went back to the corner of Jermyn-street, knocked at the house, and was admitted, and the 5
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. was spent for a quartern of gin—I have not paid Mr. Rowbotham his shilling—I parted with the prisoner outside the public-house in Arundel-place—it was after that the robbery was committed—I am quite sure it was not me that knocked the prisoner down—on my solemn oath he was not knocked down by me—I did not run against him—I am sure my hand was not in his pocket—it was never nearer than his collar when I took hold of him—it was not him that called police.</p>
