<lb/>gularities, but he assured me they were only inaccuracies—up to 20th May I had the highest opinion of his integrity—I first pointed out to him these several entries on 22d May—I told him I had found a great variety of small sums he had received and not accounted for—he was very much surprised, and said if there were any errors he should be glad to set them right—he said he had been in difficulties with respect to a debt, and his mind was so worried that he might have omitted to put down some payments which he had received; and I said if that was the case, and he would make up his accounts, I would overlook it; but I found he could not give me the money, and would not re

I am in the employ of George Crouch, a carrier, of Tudor-street, Blackfriars; Byford was his porter, and Arnold an acquaintance of his. On 21st June I gave Byford seventeen parcels—I called them over him—he entered them himself, and put them into his bag—the consignees have to sign the book—he left me about nine o'clock or a quarter-past, and returned about three—I looked at his book, and found one parcel not receipted for—he said, "I have missed one of the parcels for Green and Banks, of Hatton-garden; have I left it behind me?"—I said no. and be must remain in the place till Mr. Crouch came—he said he had lost the parcel on his way; he did not know how—the parcel was in brown paper—he would know that Green and Banks were jewellers—when we were arranging them in the morning, he said, "Here are two for Green and Banks," and he has entered two.</p>

Mr. Crouch's son, who was with roe, said it was respecting a parcel—he said, "That d----d parcel, I suppose, that Byford lost; it is a d----d fine thing to get into trouble by a parcel that another person lost"—I took him to the station—he said he accompanied Byford to Thavies-inn and Newgate-street; that Byford took three parcels, and went to King-street, Holborn, Warwick-court, and Red-lion-square, I while he remained with the parcels, that he took them out to arrange them, I some charity children and a mob passed, and if he lost the parcel it must I have been then, that when Byford returned he told him he missed one, that I they went to Green and Banks and delivered one, and then went to a beer-shop in Pentonville, and had two games at skittles, which he won sod Byford paid for, and they then went to Finsbury and delivered two parcels, and then returned home.</p>
