<interp inst="t18481218-name-79" type="given" value="WILLIAM JAMES"/>WILLIAM JAMES BEDEL</persName> </hi>. My father is an auctioneer and land-agent, carrying on business in Gresham-street, City; he has a country-house near Chelmsford, called Broomfield-lodge. On Monday, 6th Nov. last, I saw this advertisement in the
<hi rend="italic">Times</hi> newspaper:—"A pair of brown geldings, and a very superior Brougham-horse to be sold, at half their value, to procure immediate sale; the pair are well-bred, clever in saddle, and step well together in harness; six years old. The Brougham-horse is bay, black legs, sixteen hands; very noble horse in harness; five years old; warranted sound. The coachman is fully empowered to disposed of them. 28 stable, Turk's Head Mews, Harley-street, Cavendish-square. Also, a very stanch pair of liver and white pointers."—In consequence of seeing that I went to" Turk's Head Mews, or Harley Mews North, in Harley-street—I went down the yard, and when I got to No. 28 stable I saw Mowatt; he was dressed similar to what he is now, with a shawl-handkerchief on, a black coat, and kerseymere trowsers—I asked him for the coachman of 28 stable—he said that he was the coachman—I went into the stable, and asked him whether those were the horses which were advertised for sale in the
<hi rend="italic">Times</hi>—he said they were—I said, "You will have no objection to give me a reference to whom these horses belong?"—he said, "No, certainly not;" they belong to Mrs. King, of Eastbourne, Sussex"—I asked him to have the horse stripped and taken out of the stable, that I might see him—he called a person named George, who turned out to be a person named Bubb; who came from the loft, went up to the horse's head, took the clothes off, put a bridle on him, and turned him round in rather a clumsy way—Mowatt said, "D----n these Lon
<lb/>don fellows, I thought they were more up to their business"—I looked at the horse, and found he was older than he was represented to be—I believe that was the smaller horse—I asked him how long Mrs. King had had them—he</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184812180006"/>
<p>said, pointing to the smaller horse, "That one she bred, and the other (all
<lb/>uding to the larger one), she bought two or three years ago"—the little horse was then taken into the stable, and—the other one was brought out—he said they had been constantly driven together, and I asked to see them stand together side by side—I asked how long they had been driven together, and he said constantly for about two years by himself; that the ladies had ridden them, and they were perfectly quiet in double and single harness—I believe I made a remark upon the other horse's age as well—I said that either he or I must be a fool to say that horses with their mouths were only six years old—he said that they were only that, for the one his mistress had bred, and the other she had only had about two years—the horses were then taken into the stable, and I asked him, I believe, what the price was—he said his mistress, Mrs. King, expected a hundred guineas for them; but that I had better see the job-master as to price—he called to George, and told him to fetch his master; he did not mention the job-master's name, but it turned out to be Ward—Ward came down the yard, and I told him, in Mowatt's presence, that I had seen the horses; that I liked the look of them very well, and that the coachman told me they were perfectly quiet in double and single harness—Ward said, "I can assure you that they are both perfectly quiet in double and single harness"—I said it was not for myself that I wanted them, they were for my father; and unless they were quiet 1 would not look at them, nor get him to look at them at any price whatever—he said Mrs. King was an old customer of his; that she had been dealing with him for fourteen or fifteen years, and that was the reason she had sent the horses up to him to be sold—I repeatedly spoke about their being quiet, and he said they were quiet; I might have no doubt about it; that he knew Mrs. King a long time; that she would not ride behind them unless they were perfectly quiet; and she would not permit him to tell a lie about it—I then asked the price—he said that Mrs. King expected a hundred guineas for them; but that he had no doubt she would take eighty, for what with the expense of the horses standing at livery, and the coachman, who must have his "
<hi rend="italic">baccy</hi>" the same as the rest of them, it cost her very nearly 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a week—I said it was useless for me to look at them at that price—" Well, sir, "he said, "I don't think she would take any less; but ladies don't know much about these sort of things"—I again asked him as to their being quiet; "for, "I said, "my father is uncommonly fidgetty, and unless they are perfectly quiet I really would not have them"—he said, "You need be under no apprehension of anything of that sort, sir, for I have known Mrs. King so long; and I can give you a warranty that they are perfectly quiet"—I then asked him to tell me the price he intended to take for them as I would get my father to look at the horses, and if he liked them, I would recommend him to buy them; but as for eighty guineas, that would not do—he said it would be a bad job for him; that Mrs. King had been his customer so long that he should get nothing by having the horses there at that price—he then said, "If you like to have the horses at seventy guineas, and pay me my commission, I think I can get Mrs. King to accept it"—I said, "If I bought the horses, I should buy them outright, without having anything to do with his commission"—he said, "Well, it is a very bad job for me; I shall get nothing out of it"—I said, "I can't help that; if you will tell me the lowest price you will take for them I will get my father to look at them, and see if he will buy them"—he said he thought Mrs. King would not take any less—I said then I could not buy them at that price—he asked what I would give for them—I said, "I believe it is not a usual custom to be buyer and seller too;" I know you men</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184812180007"/>
<p>have generally two prices, an asking price and a selling price; and if you will at once tell me, as I am going to Tattersall's to-day, I shall probably, unless I buy these, meet with a pair there"—he then said if I liked to take them at sixty-five guineas, and pay his commission, I should have them—he said he had been to an omnibus-proprietor, a namesake of his, named Chaplin, who would give him seventy guineas for them immediately; but Mrs. King had left particular orders with the coachman that they were not to be sold unless for private use; that she would not entertain any dealers having them—I then told him that if he would give me the refusal of them at 65
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. till three o'clock in the afternoon I would get my father to look at them, as they were for him, and not for myself; and then I would give him an answer whether we would have them or not—this was about half-past eleven, or twelve—I then went away, and returned in about an hour with my father—I found Mowatt and Ward standing against the stable-door—Mowatt opened the door; we went in, and 1 said, "These are the horses"—Bubb was in a box close by, with a Brougham-horse—the horses were brought out—my father entered into con
<lb/>versation with the men—I did not pay attention to what was said; I walked away.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Then the purchase was com
<lb/>pleted by your father?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It was—I cannot say that I am a judge of horses; I am very fond of horses—I knew at once that these horses were more than six years old; they did not take me in as to that—I believe it is a standard rule with horse-dealers that whatever age a horse may be, it is six years old
<hi rend="italic">off</hi>—I went there to exercise my own judgment on the horses—I will not say that I imagined I knew enough of a horse to be able to judge of it—I could not tell whether a horse was quiet, without trying it—the horses were tried afterwards by myself and our coachman—they were put into a van, and we were very glad indeed to take them out again; we were not ab'e to drive them—I did not try them by placing them in both positions—they were tried afterwards by a regular livery-stable keeper—if they had turned out quiet, and done the work that we wanted them to do, we should certainly have kept them—they, kicked and bit, and did everything that was bad, when they were in harness; they backed and reared; one of them came out of the stable very well, the other would not; we were obliged to back him out—the van they were put to was a light van, on steel springs, not a noisy one—there was plenty of room for them; they did not touch; they were very carefully put to—I believed the story about Mrs. King; had it not been for believing that story I would not have bought them at any price—I took a receipt; it is in Court, it states that they were to be returned within a week if not approved of—I had nothing to do with taking the receipt or warranty; my father took it—the prisoner was given into custody on the Friday fol
<lb/>lowing, before the week was up—we had certainly not approved of the horses——they were returned on the Saturday—I did not go to the stables; one of the London police did, not by my directions; I gave no directions that the horses should be returned, or that any application should be made to the prisoner to take them back—they were sent to Dixon's for sale—they fetched 33
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. 12
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—I gave directions for their sale—I described them as "a brown gelding, "and "ditto;" not as "quiet to ride and drive;" nothing about quietude—they were not described as the property of a gentleman just come off a journey, not with my sanction—I was not at the sale—I did not hear the description read out by anybody, nor see it in the catalogue; I have never seen a catalogue—my father did not tell me anything about the description—I saw Mr. Dixon, and gave him the description—I said I wished a pair of horses</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184812180008"/>
<p>to be sold there—he asked me for the description, and I said, "A brown gelding," and" Ditto"—he said, "Put in 'quiet to ride and drive?'"—I said, "No, certainly not, with my sanction; and what is more I will not have it put in on any account whatever"—he said, "It will not make much differ
<lb/>ence;" but I said, "I will not have it put in"—it was not Mr. Dixon himself; it was one of his officials—whatever else he choose to put in was without my sanction, and not hinted to me at all—I got 31
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. from him, I think, for the sale of the horses—I had something to pay to Mr. Dixon—I am positive what Mowatt said was, that he was servant to Mrs. King, not that he
<hi rend="italic">had been</hi>—he added that his mistress was going to Jersey, and he wanted to get back as soon as he could, because he did not think he should go to Jersey with her—I am positive he did not say that he had left in con
<lb/>sequence of his mistress going to Jersey—if he had said so I should have suspected something directly, with regard to the horses—I sent them to Dixon's on the Wednesday week, the 15th—I believe notice of the sale was given to Mowatt, but I do not know anything about that.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Who went to the stables on the Saturday?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I did, and one of the City police; that was the Saturday after the Monday—we went to stable, No. 28, and found they had all gone away—the prisoner was taken into custody on the Friday—we have never succeeded in taking Ward—Mowatt was admitted to bail on the Saturday morning; it was after that that I went to the stable—Mr. Humphreys, our solicitor, stated publicly before the Magistrate, in Mowatt's hearing, that we should return the horses that day—we went to the stable, I should say, two hours after, if not more, about five o'clock—we found neither Ward, Mowatt, or Bubb, or any one to represent them—the bail had been accepted full two hours before I went to the stable—I did not see the bail entered into—the horses were sold on the Friday week, 17th Nov.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Times</hi>, I went to Turk's Head Mews, or Harley-street Mews, and saw Mowatt, Ward, and Bubb—the horses were brought out, and stood side by side—I looked at them, and said I under
<lb/>stood they were more than six years old, but I did not care about that so long as they were quiet—Mowatt then stated that he was coachman to Mrs. King, of Eastbourne, Sussex, that she bred one of the horses, that he had driven them together two or three years, and I might depend upon them being perfectly quiet—I had them walked down the yard—Mowatt said he had driven them with a snaffle on the top—I said, "I suppose you mean you drove them with a curb bit on the cheek—he said, "Yes," and that he had constantly driven them, and that the last journey was with his mistress from Eastbourne to Bromley, and they came up extremely well; and that when his master was alive he used to drive the larger horse in single harness, he was a capital horse in single harness, and he always drove him with a snaffle bit—I said that what I was particularly anxious about was, the horses being quiet, and he repeated several times his having driven them together, as Mrs. King's coach
<lb/>man, and he always rode the larger horse when he rode post—some conver
<lb/>station occurred about the price, and he referred me to Ward, and said, "The job-master will talk to you about the price," pointing to Ward, who was standing by—Mowatt said that he was very anxious indeed to get rid of the horses, because he was there at considerable expense, and his mistress was very anxious for him to get back, as she was going to Jersey, and wanted the horses sold, and if sold he should go back that night—I then had some con
<lb/>versation</p>

<p>with Ward about the price, and he asked me seventy guineas—I said I could not give that price—Mowatt, who was standing by, then came up to me, and said, "What has he asked you?"—I said, "Seventy guineas"—he said, "I don't think my mistress will accept that price"—I was then walking up the yard towards the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi>, which was waiting for me in Harley-street—Ward and Mowatt were walking with me, talking about the price, and Ward said, in Mowatt's hearing, he would take sixty-five guineas for them if I would pay his expenses, for that Mrs. King was a very old customer of his, and he could not charge her anything for the standing of the horses, and he should get nothing unless I gave him something—I told him I could have nothing at all to do with his commission, and as I was getting into the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> I said I would give him 60
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. for the horses—he and Mowatt were standing together—Ward said he could not take that price, and after some more con
<lb/>versation, he still recommending the horses as a pair most likely to suit me, the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> drove on—in going along Harley-street, in consequence of some conversation with my son, we turned round, and came to the end of the yard in the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi>—Ward and Mowatt were standing together at the corner—Ward came to the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi>-door, and I said, "I think the horses will suit me in consequence of what you say, and I am induced to offer you 65
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. to include everything, if you will deliver them at the Eastern Counties station this afternoon"—he said I must give him something for himself, for he had no other chance of getting anything—I said, "No, I shall not do that," and I called out to the
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> man to go on—he then said, "Stop a minute"—Ward then went to Mowatt, who was standing two or three steps from him, and be came back and said I should have the horses—I then said to Mowatt," Of course you will lend me the cloths and bridles to take the horses down to the railway, and I will return them to-morrow"—he nodded assent—Ward came from Mowatt to the
<hi rend="italic">cab-door</hi>, and said, "You must give me something to bind the bargain—I gave him a sovereign, and drove away, having previously arranged that he was to be at my office, in Gresham-street, a little before four o'clock, and that the horses were to be sent at five o'clock to the Eastern Counties Railway station—I then went away, and got back to the office about a quarter to four—I found Ward there—I took out my check-book to draw a check—Ward said a check was of no use to him, because the bank would be closed, and he could not get the money—I said I had not the money by me, and after talking for two or three minutes I said, "Well, if you will be at the railway station at five o'clock, I will endeavour to get the check changed, so as to give you the money"—at five o'clock I went to the rail
<lb/>way station, where I saw Ward—he wished me to pay him—I said, "Where are the horses?"—he said they would be there in a minute or two—I replied I should like to see them first, and in the course of a few minutes they came into the yard—a horse-box was got ready—I then went into the waiting-room, and paid Ward four sovereigns, having given him one before, and six 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. Bank of England notes—he again pressed me very much to give him something for himself, saying I must give him something to get a new hat, that he should get nothing for the keep of the horses, repeating what he had said before—I gave him no answer, but walked out where the horse-box was—he followed me—I found them taking the cloths off the horses—I remonstrated, and Bubb then stated that he was ordered not to leave the cloths or bridles—in a minute or two afterwards Bubb came to me, and wanted something for bringing the horses—I said, "No; as I have been deceived about the clothing, I will not give any of you a
<hi rend="italic">screw, "</hi> I think was the observation—I then went down by the train—the horses were taken out</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184812180012"/>
<p>at Chelmsford that evening—Ward gave me this receipt at the time I paid him—(
<hi rend="italic">read</hi>)—"London, Nov. 6, 1848. Received of J. Bedel, Esq., the sum of 65
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., for a pair of brown geldings, warranted sound, quiet to ride, and quiet in double and single harness; the horses to be returned within one week from this date, if not approved of.
<hi rend="smallCaps">GEORGE WARD</hi>." The horses got into my stable at Broomfield that night—I went to see them taken out next morning, and directed my coachman to put the harness on—they were put to a spring van which I keep, and in which I always drive horses before I put them to my carriage—one of the horses came out of the stable very well—the large one we could not get out; we had considerable trouble with it, and we were at last obliged to back him out—after considerable difficulty we put the horses to the van—they appeared to be unaccustomed to be put to harness—my coachman and my son got on the box, and we tried to make them go forward, but they were very unwilling to do so, but after pushing at the wheel, and pushing behind, they sometimes rearing, and sometimes backing, and sometimes going a step or two forward, we got them out of the gates into the road—they still kept on doing the same, and after they had got about fifteen or twenty yards, one of them kicked very viciously—I had not given them too much beans; I had none in my stable—they bit one another very much in going through the yard—they were evidently unaccustomed to each other, and, I think, to harness—I did not take any care as to which side I put them in, or change them—as soon as I found they would not go forward, but kicked and reared, I had them taken out—I never tried them in the carriage—that was the only experiment I personally made with them—they were tried subse
<lb/>quently—I came up to London, and communicated with the police—I did not go to the stable—I attended before the Magistrate on the Saturday—at the time I parted with my money I believed the horses were the property of Mrs. King, that she had bred one and bought the other, and that Mowatt was her coachman, and that the horses were sent up to Ward, the job-master, for the purpose of selling them.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did you pay the money before you took the receipt?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, I laid it on the table—Ward was going to take it up—I put my hand on it and said, "Let me have the receipt, if you please"—he then handed me the receipt, and I took my hand off the money, and he took it—I should not have parted with the money without a receipt—I had looked at the receipt—I knew its contents—I would not swear that I read it before I received it—when he took the money I took up the receipt and read it—I saw the words," to be returned within one week if not approved of" at the time he had the money, if I did not before; I did before we parted certainly—that was not an undertaking that I had insisted upon; it was offered by Ward—he stated it—it was that, joined to the fact that I believed the horses to have been driven together, and to have been the property of Mrs. King. and to be quiet, that induced me to buy them—I was glad to have the opportunity of returning them within a week if they did not suit me—it was an element in the case certainly—I ordered the horses to be sent to Dixon's for sale—they were net sent as the property of a gentleman—they were not, to my know
<lb/>ledge, sold as the property of a gentleman just come to London—the person who sold them is not here, to my knowledge—I was not at the sale—I have the auctioneer's return of the price they fetched—I was not offered the whole of the money back—a note was left at my office without being dated from any place, and with a signature which I could not read—this is it—(
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—it was forwarded to me at Broomfield by my clerk, about the middle of the same day—it is dated, Monday, 13th—I did not see any</p>

<p>parties after that who offered me the money—I consulted my solicitor; "but the letter being dated from nowhere, and being signed by nobody, I could not sec what we could do with it—this is the letter—(
<hi rend="italic">read</hi>)—"I have received this morning a communication from Mr. Ward, wherein he instructs me to return you the 65
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., according to agreement as per receipt given to you for the horses, in case you should not approve of them. Your
<hi rend="italic">clerk</hi> informs me that you will not be in town till to-morrow, therefore any time between eleven and four o'clock to-morrow, Tuesday, you can have your money returned by sending the horses to the stable in Harley-street"—I believe my clerk did see the person—I did not send the horses to the stable on the Monday—I did on the Saturday, but not after receiving the letter—I believe it was a fact that I was not likely to be in town on Monday—I am an auctioneer—we do not always give a literal account of the matters we have to sell, but we do not deceive—some persons give a much more pic
<lb/>turesque description of the property they have to sell than others—I am not poetical, and do not keep a poet.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you explain to the Magistrate that you had received that letter?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, on the Saturday following—I never gave authority to the auctioneer to misrepresent the facts with reference to these horses, and I do not believe it was done—I received 31
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. from Mr. Dixon—they were sold on Friday, 24th.</p>

I know the defendant—I saw him on 1st Nov., between four and five o'clock in the afternoon, at the King's Head, in Old Change—his brother-constable, Edward Healey, was with him—they went down into the skittle-ground, and played at skittles there, about three hours—I went with them, but neither Grant nor I played—I remained there till seven o'clock—I was in Grant's company the whole of that time—he, I, and Healey then went over to the Crown and Sceptre, which is kept by Healey's brother; it is only seven or eight yards from the King's Head—we there saw Perez and Lee—I went with Grant and Healey from one house to the other—there was nobody in the street at the time—Healey called for a quartern of gin and two cheroots; one I had and one Healey had, and he poured out a glass of gin for Grant, who directly gave it to Perez—he drank it, and he in return put his hand in his pocket, and gave Grant a cigar—about a minute or two after, Perez asked for a knife, in his broken way of speaking English—the landlady gave it him—he untied a brown paper parcel, containing a box of cigars—no one had any cigars out of the box—he said they were good—they were folded up again, and the box remained on the counter—a minute or two after, Grant called Lee on one side; I did not hear what he said, but Lee left within two or three minutes, leaving the cigars—Perez then took the box of cigars under his arm, and was about to leave the house, when Grant placed his hand on his shoulder, and said he was his prisoner, and asked where he was going—he said, "Me do no wrong, me do no wrong; my master's goods"—Grant then went with him to his house—I went about ten</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="184812180021"/>
<p>minutes afterwards with Healey—the policemen began to search the house—I was detained by Grant as a witness, to take particular notice what things he took away—I had seen him once before that day—I saw some bills found in a box—Grant said, "What, more master's bills? you had better burn them, they will only go hard against you"—I am sure it was Grant that said that—Perez said, "Me no burn"—Grant handed the bills to Healey, and Healey put them into Perez's hande—nothing further was said—I did not hear Healey say or do any thing—I was in the room the whole time they were—I then went for a
<hi rend="italic">cab</hi> with young Healey—we went over Waterloo-bridge—Grant then hallooed out of the window, to know the nearest station to where this occurred; I said, "Garlick-hill"—Garlick-hill is about a minute's walk from the Crown and Sceptre—I heard the charge made by the defendant at the station—he said, as he was passing from Cheapside down Old Change, a tall stout gentleman stopped him, and said there was a party in the Crown and Sceptre selling stolen property—Perez then placed the bills in the inspector's hands—the inspector said they alluded to the property that was taken—Perez spoke such broken English that very few parties could understand him—the inspector said he could not take it as a charge of felony, and asked what charge he would prefer against him—he said, "Selling goods without a licence"—the inspector asked if he had any witnesses; he said, his brother-constable—an excise officer was sent for—he came and looked at the tobacco and cigars—he said they were English make, and there was no case for him at all—he was then bailed, and went before the Magistrate next morning.</p>

<lb/>out for him for some time—Perez did not offer me the cigars for sale, in any other way than opening the box, and pointing them out to me—there was nobody there but me, and I had bought and paid for them previously—I smelt them, and he said, "Good"—I did not hear him say, "Very cheap, very cheap, will you buy?"—these were English cigars—cigars are made in England, and have foreign names given to them.</p>
