On the morning of 7th Dec, after having jumped out of bed, and gone to my dressing-room, and put on what I first found, I ran down, and found the drawing-room open, and a great number of the drawers out of an old cabinet strewed about the floor—I ran out of the house to the station, and gave notice to the police—I had gone to bed about twelve o'clock the night before, I came down a little before twelve, and found the cook was up—I sent her to bed, and soon afterwards went to bed myself—I had then five snuff-boxes, a brooch, a powder-horn, and the other articles named in the indictment—they were all in the drawing-room or hall, and I missed them the next morning—I know these two boxes and this knife; they are mine—I believe this box was on the back drawing-room table on the night of the 6th, and this other box was in the drawing-room—this box is not in the state it was; the lid of it is now off, and this miniature was inside the lid—it had a gold lining, and that has been removed—I saw them safe on the night of the 6th—I do not know where this knife was—the value of these is about five guineas—they are all my property—I have had the knife about three or four years—there is no mark on it—I have had this box fifteen or sixteen years, and this other about five years.</p>

On the morning of 7th Dec., about seven o'clock, I received information from Colonel Anstruther—I went to William-street, Lisson-grove, and met the two prisoners, in company with another man—it was thenabout twenty minutes before eight—another policeman was with me—he apprehended Crewe; I laid hold of Frewin and the third man, but the third man broke away—Frewin said, "What do you want me for?"—I told him, for being concerned in a robbery in Monmouth-street that morning—I took him towards the Paddington station, and the other police
<lb/>man followed with Crewe—when we got near the station, Frewin turned his head partly behind towards where Crewe was, and he called out,
<hi rend="italic">"Ding it"</hi>—Crewe was at that time about a yard from him, and Frewin spoke loud enough for him to hear—I saw Crewe directly afterwards throw away this box on the pavement—I picked it up, and have had it in my custody ever since—I searched Frewin at the station, and found on him a key, a knife, a dupli

<hi rend="italic">Ding</hi> it"—I should say he said it loud enough for Crewe to hear—immediately on that, Crewe threw away these two boxes—I picked up one, and Glenister picked up the other—Crewe had flung away this knife before that, and I picked it up—Colonel Anstruther's house is in the parish of Paddington.</p>

Anstruther, and that of Dr. Gordon, which is five or six minutes walk from it—there is a large garden to Dr. Gordon's house, which comes within a few minutes' walk of Col. Anstruther's—I traced foot-marks in Dr. Gordon's garden, and from that garden towards Col. Anstruther's house, to within about five minutes' walk of it—I compared the foot-marks with the shoes I took from Crewe—I made an impression with the shoes by the side of the footmarks, and ultimately put the shoes into the footmarks—they corresponded exactly with the footmarks in the garden and those in the road—I also compared Frewin's shoes with marks in the garden, and from the garden, and found them very minutely to correspond.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> When did you compare them?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> On the 8th of Dec. I compared them at Dr. Gordon's, and on the 13th of Dec. with the footmarks at Col. Anstruther's—I did not go to Col. Anstruther's on the 8th of Dec.—I compared them outside Dr. Gordon's on the soft road which leads on to the hard road which leads to Paddington—it may be a quarter of a mile from Col. Anstruther's—I saw the distinct marks of three persons in Dr. Gordon's garden, and a number of indistinct footsteps—it was a dry morning on the 8th of Dec.—it had not been raining over night—the im
<lb/>pression showed this elevated spot on the shoe—this part was not altogether out of the mud in the soft soil—the impression was perhaps three quarters of an inch deep—I made impressions by the side of the mark, and then I ultimately put the shoes into the original place—I did so with both the pri
<lb/>soner's shoes, and in length and breadth, and every way, I found them to correspond—I did the same on the 13th at Col. Anstruther's—one of the sergeants and Col. Anstruther were with me—I found them to correspond equally there—I made an impression by the side as I did before—I should think I made five or six impressions—it is a small garden—it is not grass, it is mould—I could see that the nails which are in Frewin's shoes corresponded—I did not count the nails—it had been fine weather between the 8th and the 13th of Dec.—I do not remember that there was any rain—the footsteps were in a state of preservation.</p>

<p>and stopped again—I walked up and told them to go quietly home, when I was seized by the woman—she pulled my hat off, and attempted to scratch my face—I threw my head back to prevent it, and Ryan ran up and caught me round the waist with his arms—M'Kenna and the other man assisted him—I am quite positive M'Kenna is one of them—they threw me down on the back of my head—I was stunned with the fall—it cut my head—when I was down I received two severe blows on the front of my head—I was endeavour
<lb/>ing to draw my staff when I fell, and when I recovered myself I had lost it and my lantern—I did not feel it taken—I was stunned by the fall—I had not used my staff—I cannot say which of the prisoners struck me—it must have been one of them, for they fell on me—Ryan was on me, and M'Kenna next to him—the other man and woman were at the rear of them—I saw nobody else near—it is a narrow place, not four feet wide—somebody might have been at a little distance—I was taken to St. Thomas's hospital and remained an in-patent till the 24th, and am still under the surgeon's care.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How long have you been in the police?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Seven years last Oct.—I had been on duty from nine in the evening—I had not been drinking—I might have had half a pint of beer, which I generally do on my duty in the fore part of the night—I think I remember having it—I had no spirits that evening to my recollection—I would not swear that I had not—I had no rum or gin—I do not remember having any brandy—when I do have half a pint of beer, it is at a house at the corner of Petticoat-lane—that is on my beat, but the Catherine Wheel is not—I had nothing there that night—Ryan said I was drunk when 1 was at the Mansion-house, and that I had struck a woman—I do not know that he said so at the station—I was taken to the station first, and from there to the hospital—he stated that he came up to take my number, and I struck him—none of his statement was true—I was in the hospital when M'Kenna was taken—I have always sworn positively to him—I have never been charged with any assault before a Magistrate, or with making a wrong charge—I have never been mis
<lb/>taken in making a charge—I was not at the Catherine Wheel that night.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. RYLAND</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What time were you taken to the hospital?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> About twenty minutes to four—I was first examined before the Alderman on 24th Jan.—M'Kenna was there—I identified him—I had seen Sergeant Russell about a quarter of an hour before this happened, and conversed with him—I was as sober as I am now.</p>

<lb/>wards, and found Notley injured—I went to the station, and saw Ryan—I told him I saw him at 2, Catherine Wheel-alley a little
<hi rend="italic">bit</hi> ago—he said he had been there to see some friends—I went with other men to the house, and found M'Kenna sitting on the stairs with a female—I took him, and sent him to the station; he was discharged on account of not being identified—he was taken about a fortnight afterwards, and I was present at the Mansion-house when Notley identified him—I had seen Notley on his beat a quarter of an hour before; he was as sober as he is now—I never knew him the worse for liquor in my life.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Were you examined before the Magistrate?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; before I was examined, I heard Ryan charge Notley with being drunk, but I knew it was false; I did not tell him so—the first I heard of it was in the morning before the Magistrate—I then heard that Ryan told the man so who apprehended him—I had been on duty from nine o'clock—I am a sergeant—I had a pint of beer; I think it was in Aldgate, at the top of Petticoat-lane—that is not the house I frequent; any house is mine when I want a drop—if I want a drop on my beat, I have it and pay for it; it makes no difference to me—Notley was not with me, it is not on his beat; he takes the bottom part of Petticoat-lane—I swear I had nothing but that pint of beer that night; I had no spirits—we are not allowed by the authorities to go into public-houses; there is no objection to our having a pint of beer outside—we do</p>

<hi rend="italic">too fast</hi> with her, or I would report his conduct at the station-house; I looked close, to take his number, when he struck me in the eye with his fist, and knocked my hat off; I saw a woman at a distance in the alley, and told her to go and fetch a policeman, and I ran away at the same time to see if I could find one; I did not meet one, and I came back to the same place, and when I came back I could not find my hat, and I did not see a policeman either; so as I was coming along to the station-house I met this policeman (Murray) opposite the station-house; I asked him if it was one of their men on duty in Catherine Wheel-alley; he said, "Come across, we have got your hat;" I said, "Yes, it is my hat," to the policeman on the beat; I saw him with some blood on his face; he said that I was the person who took his staff and knocked him down; nothing more, only they locked me up directly.

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I was present at the Court, but not as a witness—I heard part of Notley's examination—I was in and out—I do not think I heard M'Kenna put a question to Notley—I went in twice, and came out again—I did not hear it stated to M'Kenna, "The woman who cohabits with you was there;" it is a wrong charge—I am sure I did not hear it said, "She is the woman who took off my hat"—I cannot say whether there were three men and a woman together—I did not see two other men, of whom Ryan was one—we were not in his company that night I was there, and did not see him—I did not see Sergeant Russell that evening till he took M'Kenna—I had not noticed his looking in a quarter of an hour before that—I swear Ryan was not in company with me and a man—I do not know him—I had not been in the court; I had been out in the square, between the public-house door and No. 2—I was not outside more than two minutes' when we went into No. 2—I did not lose my bonnet, or take the man's hat off—I saw no woman with M'Kenna but me.</p>

<p>Russell has stated that he saw M'Kenna and Ryan together after twelve o'clock that night—is it true or false?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I cannot say—Ryan was not in M'Kenna's company during any part of the time I was with him—I live at No. 5—the Catherine Wheel is No. 3—to go there for any errand I should not put on my bonnet or shawl—I never had my bonnet on from six—I do not know where M'Kenna lives—he does not live in the alley—I know he lives at some distance, and would have had to have gone home through the street—I know nothing about touching the policeman—I never saw him after twelve, and I had not seen him before, for I was in doors—I did not see him in the Catherine Wheel—M'Kenna was fiddling—I believe he gets his living so—I am sure I did not see Russell that night before M'Kenna was taken—Ryan was not in M'Kenna's company—I was not with them at any time that evening—a policeman could not have turned his light on us all three, and seen us altogether—if any policeman has sworn it, it is false.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> At quarter to three o'clock, were you not in the court at 2, Catherine Wheel-alley?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not in the court—I was in the house No. 2—the door was not pushed open, and a light turned on, a quarter of an hour before M'Kenna was taken—I did not see it—I mean to say, the policeman did not see M'Kenna and Ryan—M'Kenna and me were together—Ryan was not in the passage—I swear there was nobody but M'Kenna and me there—they were not together at any time between twelve and three—I swear I had not seen Ryan in M'Kenna's company that night.</p>

I am only housekeeper there; the house does not belong to me—I know the prisoner—he came to me on 2nd Jan.—he said he had a warrant in his pocket for Mary Smith—I said, "Well! what was that to do with me?"—he said he would take me as Mary Smith, if I did not give him 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I said, "My name is not Mary Smith,' and you know that"—he said, "I will take you at Mary Smith, if you don't give me 5
<hi rend="italic">l."</hi>—I said, "I am sure you cannot do so"—he said, "You will see what I shall do"—he said, "I have a police
<lb/>man outside, and I will take you"—I said, "Then you may take me; for I will give you no 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., nor yet five pence: call in the policeman; I will go with him"—I did not think he had the policeman—he asked the servant to fetch a policeman; but he went to the door, and beckoned the policeman in—he came in, and he gave me in charge—he told the policeman he would swear I was Mary Smith—I distinctly told him, before the policeman, "You know that I am not Mary Smith"—I was then taken to the station, and was locked up—I sent for my solicitor—I have never gone by the name of "Mary Smith"—I never had anything to do with persons named "Twig," "Lane," "Wilson," or "Allen."</p>
<p>

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What is your attorney's name?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Mr. Fitzpatrick—I got out of custody by producing bail—I am still under bail, to answer the charge for which he gave me into custody—I do not know what the charge is; it might be for keeping a brothel—I have no notion of any other charge against me—I have not seen a copy of the indict
<lb/>ment—I do not know what the charge is; I have not inquired—I do not know that I am under bail to answer a charge for keeping a brothel in the parish of St James—15, James-street, is in the parish of St. Martin—I do not understand what a brothel means—men and women come there—they both lodge there, and come there for a short time—I decline to answer whether I allow them to be in a room together—I had much rather not say how much they pay—I am not married—I am single—I have lived at this house three years—I have gone by the name of</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185002040023"/>
<p>Kirkman"—I was once married—my maiden name was "Weedon"—Mr. Kirkman is dead—I took the name of "Ellis," as many persons take a name when they disgrace themselves—I had no other reason for taking that name—I never lived with a person named Ellis—I merely took that name from liking it—that is the only name I have taken—on my oath I have never gone by the name of "Smith"—I am thirty-two years old—I have never been "Mrs. Smith;" not for a day, or an hour—I never answered to any one in the name of "Smith"—nobody lives in this house with me—any person named "Smith" visits me there—I am not acquainted with any gentleman of that name—I did not go before a Magistrate to prefer the charge against the prisoner—I left it entirely with my solicitor.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. HUDDLESTON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was the prisoner present when yoa went before the Grand Jury?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; he was standing at the door the whole time—he knew why I went before the Grand Jury—my maiden name was "Weedon" married a person named "Kirkman"—I have gone by the name of "Ellis" for seven years—I took that name, because I did not wish to keep up my husband's name any longer, to disgrace his name, or my children—I formerly lived as housekeeper at 16, Oxenden-street—for the last three years I have had nothing to do with any other house than 15, James-street—since I was taken into custody there have been two Sessions held at Clerkenwell—I have not been summoned to either of those—no steps have been taken against me since—I have never been out of bail.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you ever go by the name of "Watts?"
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I was called "
<hi rend="italic">Watty</hi> Ellis" the whole time I was at 16, Oxenden-street—a person had lived there previously, and I was called that for shortness—they all knew my name was Ellis, and I was called Ellis there—they call me Ellis now, and have done for three years—there are several persons who know me by the name of "Kirkman"—I am generally known by the name of "Ellis"—I have answered to no other name for seven years—I do not pay the rent of the house—it is not my house—I am only the housekeeper.</p>

I live at 15, James-street, Hay market—Mrs. Ellis is the housekeeper of that house—I know her by the name of "Ellis"—I was there on 2nd Jan.—when Humphreys came there, he knocked at the door and asked for "Mrs. Ellis"—I am sure the name he asked for was "Ellis"—I showed him into the parlour where she was—he said be had got a war
<lb/>rant, and if she did not give him 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. he would take her to prison, as he had a policeman outside—he said he would take her as "Mary Smith"—he said the warrant was for "Mary Smith," and he would take her in that name—she said, "You can't take me as" Mary Smith, "as you know my name is not that"—he said, "I will take you and lock you up if you don't give me 5

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> What parish is your house in?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> St. Martin's—I am housemaid there—I have been so fourteen months—I came from Graves-end—my only position at this house is housemaid—I am paid wages as servant, 10
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. a week and my food—I was not in service at Gravesend—I was in busi
<lb/>ness for myself, as a dressmaker—I came to Mrs. Ellis through my sister-in-law, who was living there at that time as housemaid—she introduced me there—I saw Mrs. Ellis a week before I came—I came to her in London—I knew the sort of house I was going to—I had never seen Mrs. Ellis before—my sister is not living there now; she is living in town—I never lived in Oxendon-street—I have never known Mrs. Ellis out of the way—she was out for a little in the summer, but she lived and slept there, acting as mistress and receiving the money.</p>

<lb/>vant came into the room and said there was a man in the passage who had called twice or thrice—Mrs. Ellis asked me if I would be kind enough to walk into the next room (there being folding doors)—I did so—I had just got inside when the prisoner entered the room—I did not wish to listen to their conversation, and did not know anything about it till I heard him say, "I have a Judge's warrant for a Mary Smith"—she said, "Well, and what has that to do with me?"—he said, "Why, all to do; unless you give me 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. I will swear you are that "Mary Smith," and I have got a policeman outside"—she said, "O, you villain!"—after a little hesitation he asked the servant if she would go and fetch a policeman—she refused to do so—I did not stop to see her given into custody, for I was very much terrified, and I opened the side-door and went out.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Which branch of your art were you pursuing at No. 15, James-street?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I was recommended to Mrs. Ellis by my brother, to clean her paintings—they were prints, by Herring—I had only been in the house a few moments, and was just looking at the pictures—there was nobody in the room but Mrs. Ellis—I have never gone by the name of "Smith," or "Ellis," or
<hi rend="italic">"Watty"</hi>—I live at 34, Pleasant-place, Walworth—I am always to be found there—I work for some of the first persons—my brother is an artist of some note—he recommended me to Mrs. Ellis—two of the pictures were by Herring, and one by Van Wincomb, as they told me—I was not put into the room to listen—I was put there, I suppose, for Mrs. Ellis's conve
<lb/>nience—I suppose she did not wish me to hear all the particulars of it—I had never heard of the prisoner before—I swear I did not go there for the purpose of being put there and being a witness afterwards—I have apartments in Plea

<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. HUDDLESTON</hi>.

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Were you sent there by your inspector?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, I was passing the house—the prisoner called my attention to it before he went in, and said he had to give a woman into custody.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he ask you to go in with him in the first instance?

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> I dare say you have been some time in the police?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Fifteen years—it was at Westminster Hall where I had the conversation with the prisoner—there was only one bill preferred at that time; there were a number of names on it—I have not got the indictment here—I believe a person named Fitzpatrick, a solicitor, was standing there at the time at the station-house door—he came to me about it, and I then told him the conversation I had with the prisoner at Westminster—I had merely known Fitzpatrick by seeing him engaged in Courts—I never had any conversa
<lb/>tion with him before—I knew Mrs. Ellis when she was housekeeper to Mrs. Gale, in Oxenden-street—that house was a brothel; that may be four or five years ago; I have not seen her above once since—she then went by the name of Mrs. Ellis; that was the only name I knew her by—I never heard her called
<hi rend="italic">Watty</hi> or Kirkman—I never had her in custody—I have not been in the house in Oxenden-street—I was called to 15, James'-street on one occasion, about two years ago, about ten o'clock one night, and I then knew she was there; it was on my beat; it was respecting a neighbour next door who had annoyed them very much, and I was called to the door to know what they could do with her—I said all they could do was to apply to a Magistrate; I had nothing at all to do with it—I did not go into the house, I stood at the door—I had nothing to drink—I do not know that there were any parish officers before the Grand Jury at Westminster—I did not see any; none were called.</p>

<lb/>ing, on 9th Jan., I was in the shop, and missed a coat which I had seen safe at nine—I went into the street, and saw the two prisoners together, walking down Finsbury-street—Morris had the coat, holding it up and looking at it—Green was by his side—they were walking away slowly—I went after them, and called "Stop thief!"—they then ran into the road, and dropped the coat—I caught Morris, and took him to the shop—I sent for a constable—an apple-woman picked up the coat, and brought it in—this is it—I know it by a private mark on it, and by the button-holes—I was going to Bunhill-row, to take the charge, and I saw Green; we took hold of him, and before we had said anything, he said, "I am not the one."</p>
