On 23d Dec., about ten o'clock in the morning, I stopped Matthews coming out of the Dock with a truck—I asked for a pass—he said it was all right, they had got the master's pass—Lusty, who was with him, produced the pass—I objected to it, and Lusty returned with it to get the weight put upon it—while he was gone I examined the truck, and found concealed under some old rope and canvas, three coils of rope—the pass only specified ropes and shaking—I refused to let it go out—Matthews said "I don't wish to deceive you, it did not come from that ship at all (that was the
<hi rend="italic">Glasgow</hi>) it came from the
<hi rend="italic">Miame</hi>"—that they bought it of the ship-keeper—Lusty came back with the pass and presented it to me—he walked away—I took Matthews into custody, and went to the
<hi rend="italic">Miame</hi>, which was lying in the dock—I asked Backhouse, the ship keeper, if he had sent any rope out of the ship that day—he stood a few minutes, and said, "Yes;"—I said, "Did the captain authorise you to do so?" he said, "No; but I have sold some rope to two men for 3

On Sunday morning, 24th Dec, about one o'clock, I was in Carlisle-street, Soho, going home—I saw the two prisoners—I had never seen them before—they came up to me, and walked one on each side of me—they asked if I would go with them: I did not, I continued walking on towards home, and one of them asked if I would go with her to a corner—I went, and they both went with me—Bradford put her hand to me, and I immediately found the chain at the back of my neck pulled—she was on my right hand side, and Johnson was close up to her—I put my hand to my breast, and found one end of my guard chain dangling down, and the watch gone—I had not looked at my watch after ten, but I am confident it was there—I seized hold of Bradford, and Johnson ran off—this is my watch (

About one that morning, I was coming along Dean-street, I heard a cry of police, and saw Johnson running along—she stopped at the house of a person named Howe, and threw something down the area—she then ran on to St. Ann's-court—a policeman came up; I told him where she had gone, and that what she had was down the area.</p>
