<lb/>ville; it is my dwelling-house, and is in the parish of St. James's, Clerken
<lb/>well. The prisoner was in my service for six months, and quitted about five weeks ago—he was fully acquainted with the interior of my house—since he left he has sometimes called to see Rabjohn, my shopman—on Tuesday night, 27th Nov., I was in my shop about half-past eight o'clock; I heard a loud screaming, which induced me to run to the passage door—Rabjohn was there, close to the street door—my servant maid ran to me from the interior of the house; and from what she told me, I ran towards the parlour at the back of the shop, and saw the prisoner just inside the parlour coming through the door—he had no hat on, that was only a few seconds after I beard the screams—I then ran to the street door, Rabjohn and the girl were near the street door—I closed it, and ordered it not to be opened—I then went to the third-floor front, which is my bed-room—I had a secretaire there—the prisoner knew I was in habit of keeping my money there—I found it half open and a small inner drawer also, from which I missed 27

<p>stairs and found a policeman, and searched about the house with him—there is a back door; I turned the key of that door before I went up-stairs, so that nobody could have come in from the back door, after I heard the screams—it leads into a yard, which is surrounded by a high wall and some buildings—it the time I first saw the prisoner I had no suspicion of him, but when I came down I had, and I asked how he came through the parlour at that time—he said he was standing near the Angel at Islington, and hearing screams he ran down a private passage and through the parlour, where I met him—he was only two feet from the foot of the stairs; I had seen him at my house that evening—my house is three houses and a half from the Angel, the half is over a gateway—my passage-door has no spring to it, it will not shut of itself if it is opened—I opened it—when I went up-stairs the windows were all shut, and everything secure.</p>

After the prisoner left, he was in the habit of calling to see me—on Tuesday evening, 27th Nov., he came about half-past seven o'clock—he walked into the shop as usual, and we had a little conversation—about five minutes to eight I went to the street-door, and stood there, having the care of some goods out in the street, and left the prisoner in the middle of the shop—he came up to me, and said, "Master says you may take the chairs in"—I said, "Very well," and walked back to move a couch; the prisoner stepped out, and brought in an arm-chair and sat down in it close by my side—after some time he said, "You do not want me any longer, I will bid you good night"—I was then about fifteen feet within the shop; he went out, the shop door adjoins the street door—whether he went away or went into the passage I cannot tell—I placed the arm-chair in the room, and immediately went to the door, looked both ways, and could not see him—I stood on the threshold about a quarter of an hour or twenty minutes—I could see the Angel from there—if the prisoner had been standing there, I think I should have seen him—I then heard a cry of "Murder!" and women's screams from up-stairs—I immediately turned round, and Mr. Phillips came up—if the prisoner had come into the house after I heard the screams I must have seen him—I am positive he did not—Mr. Phillips had the girl in his arms—I took her from him, and he ran down the shop to get a light—he then came back and bolted the street door, and said to me, "Do not let anybody in or out"—I drew the servant twenty-nine inches from one door to the other, and when I turned round the prisoner was close to my elbow, without a hat, and his hair very much rumpled, and he was very much confused—he smoothed down his hair; he came from the direction of the back parlour—it would have been impossible for any one to have come in from the time I heard the scream till I saw the prisoner in the shop, without my seeing them—I said to him, "
<hi rend="italic">Tom</hi>, how did you come in the house when you bid me good-night a quarter of an hour ago?"—he made no reply—the girl was still screaming—a knock came to the door, it was the policeman—the prisoner said, "Hold the girl fast, and do not let her go out; I will go for a policeman"—he unbolted the door and ran out, as two policemen came in—I fastened the door afterwards; in about a quarter of an hour the prisoner came back and brought some policemen with him, four or five came in altogether—during the twenty minutes I was standing at the door the prisoner had time to go up-stairs and get the money, and he bad time enough to get rid of it afterwards—when he was given in</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I bad no means of ascertaining till after death, and then the lung was entirely decom

<hi rend="italic">douted</hi> my candle, and gave me a sixpenny-piece, and a piece of bad coin with a Prince of Wales' feather on it; I asked him if that was money; he took up the poker, and was going to hit me; I stood in my own defence; he threw me on the bed, and held me by my throat; Mr. Thompson came up-stairs at the same time, and told him to be quiet; he sat down again for about a quarter of an hour, and then threw me on the bed again, and put his knee in my throat; I hallooed again for Mr. Thompson, and he came up again; I hallooed "Murder!" the policeman stood at the door, and would not take the charge; he said I was big enough to take my own part; if it had not been for the help of Thompson, he would have knocked me dead; there were several other girls in the house, and he took hold of one, and said she was the girl that struck him; I only stood in my own defence; it was not the poker he was struck with, it was only a little bit of wire; he hit the table and broke it; and said he would kill anybody that came up to take my part; he would not have given me in charge, but for the sake of getting money here; he has had several cases; he sells gin without a licence, and keeps a bad house.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Forbes's Defence.</hi> As I was going up Union-court, this man had Brown on the bed; she asked me to fetch a policeman; I went down and stood at the street-door, two policemen were there; I asked them to come up, and the prosecutor came down, laid hold of me, and said I was one of the girls; I never struck him.</p>

I am a partner in the firm of Dodd, Grueber and Rowsell, solicitors, of 5, Billiter-street—we are the lessees of the house, and underlet the ground-floor to the London General Pension Society—we occupy the first floor, part of the second, and an office at the back of the house. The prisoner Cooper was formerly in our service; I think he came in 1842, and was discharged about twelve months ago—I did not sleep in the house-Mr. Mence, to whom we let the upper part, does—the house is in the parish of St. Catherine Cree—on Thursday, 6th Dec, I left the office about half-past two o'clock—I went again about ten next morning, and was then told that the prisoners were in custody—I examined the premises, and found the door into the clerk's office had been broken open—in the second desk in that office, belonging to one of our confidential clerks, was kept the key of the iron safe and cash-box—the cash-box was kept in the safe-Cooper would know that—I saw marks on the desk which corresponded with
<hi rend="italic">a jemmy</hi> that was shown me by the police—the other desk was not tried at all—I examined a closet under the stairs, and found a quantity of torn enve
<lb/>lopes and papers there—the cupboard was large enough to hold two persons, if they wanted to conceal themselves—there was a little bit of string inside, apparently made from a piece of cocoa-nut matting, so that they could open or close the cupboard-door from the inside—I examined the staircase, and found that the persons got into the cupboard by putting their feet on a leaden water-pipe which runs along there.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLARKSON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you find anything denoting that anybody had got into the closet by means of the pipe?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> The pipe bore footmarks—any person could get into the cupboard without any difficulty from that pipe—it comes nearly flush with the door—the inner door is never open in the day-time, unless anybody leaves it open on coming in—the outer one is always open—no one belonging to the firm sleeps in the house—there was no breaking of the outer door—there is no door for Mr. Mence; the same door leads to all the floors—the clerk's office door on the first floor was broken open—after the clerks leave, the housekeeper locks up; she is not here.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> There is an outer door and then an inner door, leading to the chambers in the house?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, the cupboard is on the stair
<lb/>case—I left two of the clerks there, to the best of my recollection, on 6th Dec—the office-door was broken—the policeman produced an instrument to me which fitted it—it was quite clear the door had been broken open.</p>

The Pennion Society occupies the ground-floor, and I occupy a part of the second, and the whole of the upper part On 6th Dec. I went to bed at twenty minutes to one o'clock in the morning—the house was then quite safe—the inner office door was closed—about half-past two in the morning, I was awoke by a loud noise which appeared to come from the first floor—I lighted a candle, and went out to the landing, and called to my servants; I thought the noise came from them—I called out very loud; I awoke them; they answered so as to convince me that they were not the cause of the noise—I then called out, "Take care; there are persons in the house who ought not to be," and I called out very loud indeed twice, "I am coming down; I am coming down"—I then ran to the bed-room window in front of the house, and shouted "Police!" as loud as I could—I then heard what appeared to me to be the street door open, and I saw two men run from it towards the top of the street; one appeared to run from the house, and the other to run under the eave of the house—I was only able to see them, not to identify them—I observed the one who ran on the other side had a lighter coat than the other—when I went down stairs I found the front room first floor door lock forcibly broken—that was the door I had seen safe at half-past twelve—part of the wood was splintered, and the bolt of the lock remained as if locked—when I went round the house, the cupboard was shut, and after the alarm it was open—when I went down, I let in the policeman.</p>

<lb/>tion afterwards—I searched Rhodes, and found on him a box of lucifers, a file, a bunch of small keys, a George the Second coin, a little bottle contain
<lb/>ing oil—I knew Cooper directly he was brought in.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Was it dark?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; the gas lamp gave sufficient light for me to see them—it is not a foot from the door—it is my belief that they rushed from the house, from the rush that they came from the door—I lost them both—Rhodes was secured in less than three minutes—I had never seen him before to my knowledge—I did not turn on my bull's eye, there was no need—I was within three yards of the door, when they started off—when I first saw the rush, I was fifteen or not more than twenty yards from it.</p>

<lb/>board bore marks of having been rubbed against, and on the paper in the cupboard there were visible marks of the seats of two persons, and their shoes bore marks of whitewash—in the morning, I examined about a hand

<interp inst="t18491217-name-253" type="given" value="WILLIAM"/>WILLIAM RUSSELL. I</persName> </hi> am assistant to Messrs. Lewis and Allenby, silk-mercers, of Regent-street. On Saturday evening, 8th Dec, about half-past nine o'clock, I was in Hyde-park, returning home from Knightsbridge—I stopped at a public watering-place—the prisoner was there—he said, "It is a very fine night"—I said, "Yes," or nodded assent; nothing more—I left the place immediately and went straight in the direction of Stanhope-gate, which is my straight road home—I found the prisoner following me, and walked very fast, and turned a different way to what he was going, but still saw him following me—I then abruptly crossed the road in a dirty part, to get rid of him, but perceived him still near me—he made two or three remarks as to the closing of the park and the state of the weather—I did not answer him—I had intended crossing Hyde-park, but being dark I did not—I was inside the park, but kept along the light side where the lamps are—I found him still close to me pressing his remarks, I turned suddenly round—he then firmly laid hold of me in the most indecent manner, and said, "I can see you are a gentleman; you must give me some money; you must give me two sovereigns, or I will make a charge against you"—my flap was buttoned up—he said I must pawn my watch—being naturally timid, I became very much alarmed, and having heard of several persons being stopped, I ran across the road, the prisoner still retaining his hold—I then shouted out "Police!" and had hardly done so the third time before two policemen came, and I gave him in charge—I did not lay hold of him, except to keep him off—he could not have seen that I had a watch, unless it was when I was in the place.</p>

<p>him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Very near Apsley-house; within fifty yards of Hyde-park Corner—I was going up the drive by the side of Park-lane—the nearest way was straight across the Park—I had not gone to Knightsbridge for any express purpose that night—business calls me there three parts of my time—I bad gone out on my own business—I always take an hour's walk after the shop closes—I left home at nine—I had intended going down to Brompton, but not feeling very well, I turned to come across the Park, the nearest way home—I did not get three hundred yards from Hyde-park Corner—I walked perhaps 100 yards with the prisoner by my side—I had got 500 yards from the Achilles, more than quarter of a mile—I was much further from the Stanhope-gate—if I had gone far enough, I should have come to it, on the right hand side—I took the left of the watering-place to avoid going the sweep round Apsley-house and save the distance, and avoid going into the dark part—I changed my route when I saw the prisoner at my heels, crossed the road, and went to the left, but only the width of the road—I had intended going out at Stanhope-gate—it is the first gate you come to going up Park-lane from Piccadilly—I had got three or four hundred yards from the watering-place before I turned round—the prisoner retained his hold of my trowsers while I crossed the road—the watering-place is divided; it is for more than one person—I unbuttoned my coat there, I am positive of that—I was very much alarmed, as a young man living with us was knocked down the other night in the New-road, a more public place still—the police came not a quarter of a minute after I called out—they only occupied the time of going from one side of the road to the other.</p>

On Saturday night at eight o'clock I heard a cry of "Police!" and found the prosecutor and prisoner about two yards apart—he charged the prisoner with indecently assaulting him, by taking hold of his person, and with trying to extort money—the prisoner threatened to give him in charge for indecently assaulting him—I looked at them both, and having seen the prisoner in the Park for the last two months, took him—he said, "Do not come near me, I have got—all down me,"and put out his arm—I examined his coat at the station, and found nothing whatever upon it—I found a small packet of rouge in his pocket such as people rub their cheeks with, a duplicate, and fivepence.</p>
