<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—on 3rd Nov., while these proceedings were contemplating, I was at Osborne's in conversation with Mr. Banks, the junior partner in Mr. Osborne's firm, in the yard close to my horse; my servant was holding my horse, which was in my gig—I went into the count
<lb/>ing-house to speak to Mr. Banks—I was in the middle counting-house, and Banks and the defendant in the inner one; there are three—the moment I entered, the defendant said, "Mr. Tawney, you have served Banks with a subpoena"—I had not done so, and told him so—he said he was indebted to me for all the opposition—I told him he was wrong, that he would find he was opposed by other persons than my clients—he offered to lay me 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. he would not be opposed by any party but me—I told him I did not lay wagers at all—he said he was quite satisfied there would be nobody but me—I said he was quite wrong, and he would be opposed by other persons, and he insisted on knowing for whom I was going to oppose—I said, "That is my business"—he said, "If I had given you such an answer, you would have said it was impertinent"—I said, "Very well then, you must charge me with impertinence"—he had asked the question in a very authoritative tone—that was all the conversation that passed—he passed through the inner counting-house towards the yard—after I supposed him gone, I went into the outer counting-house to speak to Mr. Banks, and there I saw the prisoner standing with these two hunting-whips in his hands (
<hi rend="italic">produced, one had an iron hammer for the handle</hi>)—he held the cane-handled one towards me, and said, "Take that"—I said, "Why am I to take it?"—he said, "You take it"—I said, "I shall do nothing of the kind"—he walked out of the counting-house with the iron-handled whip in his hand, and walked a few yards from my gig which was standing at the door—I saw him wrap the thong round his hand, so as to make it quite tight—the lash was twisted round his hand—I waited some time by the door—I could hardly believe his assaulting me is my state of health, and I waited some minutes to give him time to reflect—I then proceeded towards my gig, and as I was about to step into it, I felt several blows on my back and shoulders from behind—I had nothing is my hand to defend myself with—after he had struck me several times, I turned round and put my hands up to my head—Mr. Banks came, caught him round his waist, pulled him away, and said, "Good God! Harvey are you mad"—the prisoner dashed Mr. Banks away, as if he had been a child—he seemed very much out of breath, and leaned against the front of the counting-house with the whip in his hand—I said, "You will have to account for this"—he said, "Yes, I know I shall have to pay for it, and I am d—d if I do not give it you; you accused me of stealing your pencil-case"—I said, "I never accused you, or thought of such a thing"—I got into my gig, and when I was in, he gave me a tremendous blow on the back—I staggered on, and he kept beating me all the time with the same weapon—I did not see anybody take him away again, he was behind me—I was obliged to stand up, as I am now—I was in great pain in sitting down, and as soon as I had started my horse I felt a blow on my head which stunned me—the stunning was momentary, and 1 felt him beating at my head—the reins got from me, and the horse ran out of the yard—the prisoner pursued me quite into the King's-road—my groom is quite a little boy—I</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He did not go up—he was to have gone up on 6th Nov.—I was there—I did not walk there—I remained some hours, in great pain the whole time—I have agents, who act for me in London—I carry on no business in London besides an attorney—I am not a horse-dealer—I buy horses; I keep four or five for my own use—I have known the prisoner as dealing in horses—some years ago he bought a black pony of me—I met him in the park, to the best of my recollection, on 28th or 30th Oct.—I was driving in my gig; I pulled up, and spoke to him—he showed some symptoms of stopping, and I stopped—I think he had a letter in his hand—it is very likely I might have seen him at times without speaking—I do not recollect that we were in the habit of passing without speaking—I do not think I saw him many times after I told him I should oppose him; I do not think I saw him above once or so—I said to him, "Harvey, I have had the ill-luck to lose a pencil-case I set great store by; I do not recollect using it since Saturday, but I was in Osborne's counting-house on Monday; you were writing there, did you happen to see whether I used a gold pen or not?"—that was all I said—I do not know that we had met before that—I saw him once at Mr. John Anderson's, where he was employed, and he asked me to go up and have some sherry, which I was surprised at—I did not go and have it—I do not remember that we saw each other and
<hi rend="italic">cut</hi> each other; certainly not on two or three occasions, that I recollect—he was walking, when I saw him in the park—he held up the letter, and said, "Are you going up to Phillips's? I shall be much obliged if you will give this letter to Phillips; this is a letter which he asked me to write"—I said I was going another way—I had never said anything more about the pencil-case before he struck me—I did not go before any Magistrate, I was too ill to attempt it—I was at the Insolvent Court afterwards for a whole day, but that would not excite me like this—I went behind his back before the Grand Jury—my medical man told me I must be as calm as possible—the prisoner disputed the account at Tattersall's altogether—he never offered me 5

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a year, and a commission of 1
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. a pound on tea, and 1/2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. pound on coffee—he went out with the cart to solicit orders, to deliver goods, and receive payment for them—the orders he gave in at the shop were generally entered in the rough waste-book by me, from his book or from his word—from the rough waste-book we prepared the way-bill—the articles were called over to the prisoner, and it was his duty to see that they were rightly called over—when the money was not paid for the goods on delivery, it was the prisoner's duty to place in the margin of the way-bill the word "dep"—it signified debt, or delivered—it meant that he did not get cash—it was his duty to check the way-bill with me every day, and pay the money marked in the fifth column to me or to Mr. Smith—those which were marked "dep" were carried from the way-bill to the day-book, and from there to the ledger, as a debt against the customer, till the time that that debt was paid—this is the way-bill of 15 th Oct.—I made it out, and delivered it to the prisoner—here are three parcels of goods delivered to Mr. Almond on 15th Oct., amounting to 7
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 8
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>.; and opposite that sum, in the fifth column, is the word "dep," in the prisoner's writing—this bill was handed to me in the ordinary way—here is the way-bill of 29th Oct.—it is in my writing—here is an entry of three parcels delivered to Mr. Almond, amounting to 7
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 8
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>., and in the fifth column here is written "dep," in the prisoner's writing—he did not account to me for any money received from Mr. Almond on 15th or 29th Oct.—it remained charged to the customer, as the cash-book would prove, it is not here—here is a receipt of the prisoner's on 29th Oct., when the second parcel was delivered, it is the prisoner's writing, it was not attached to the account when the prisoner delivered it to me—he has never accounted to me for it since—we have a customer named Miss Parker—in this way-bill of 3rd Nov. here is an account of goods amounting to 7

<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. on 3rd Nov,, it was his duty to put 7

On Monday morning, 3rd Dec., I was on duty at the London Docks—I went to a shed on the East quay—I noticed a case there, which had been broken open—I called the attention of the dock constable to it—on 7th Dec. I took Mullaly, and told him he was charged with breaking a case on 1 st Dec.—he said he never was in the docks that day, and knew nothing about it—on the way to the station he said, "I will tell you all about it; I was there that day;" that Ballard asked him what was in the case, and he said he did not know, and he took it to another shed, and opened it, and took out a fishing-rod and some other things, and then he went out of the gate, and threw the things under the gate—Ballard was in custody then.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185001070021"/>
<p>I found by the side of it a garden rake, a razor-strop, and some prints—I went to Mullaly's house, in Cooper's-court—I asked him if he was in the Docks on 1st Dec.—he said, "Yes, I was there, but was turned out by a police-constable"—I asked him if he knew anything about any fishing-rod—he said, "No"—I asked if he knew Mr. Child, the pawnbroker, in Shadwell High-street—he said, "No"—I took him to the pawnbroker's; he was not identified there, and was discharged—this was on 5th Dec.—on 22nd I took Ballard at the Docks—I asked him if he was at the East quay on 1st Dec.—he said, "No"—I asked if he knew anything about any fishing-rod—he said, "No"—I asked if he knew Mr. Child's, the pawnbroker—he said, "No"—I took him there, and saw the foreman—I said, "Do you know this man"—he said, "Yes, he is the man that pawned the fishing-rod, I have no doubt about it"—he was then taken to Lemon-street station—about two hours afterwards he returned, and said to me, in the presence of Mullaly, whose proper name I believe is Gannon—"I did pawn the rods; I was asked to pawn them by Gannon, who told me, he had taken a case from a shed on the East quay, broke it open, and took out the rod, and he got them out under the brandy quay gate."</p>

Gannon, are you going fishing?"—he said, "Hum"—I walked with them to the Match-walk; I then left them, and went to King David-lane—when I came back, I saw, both the prisoners standing facing Mr. Child's, the pawnbrokers.</p>
