I live at No. 1, St. James's-terrace, Harrow-road, and am a corn and flour factor; I have been carrying on business in London since last June; previous to that I had carried on business at Reading. I know Keene; I knew him when he was in the service of Messrs. Avex and Terry—in July last I saw him at the corn market; he told me be could recommend some good customers, who would buy some flour of me—he said he had left the house of Avex and Terry, and was living on his income, which was between 100
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. and 200
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a year—I told him to bring no customers but those he knew; he said he would bring me none but the very best—a friend of mine had some transaction with him about some sacks—about 6th Aug. I saw him again in the market—he said he had an excellent customer, a man very trustworthy indeed, who was going to open a shop at 10, Southampton
<lb/>place, Camberwell, and he wished me to send ten sacks of flour there; he gave me the customer's name, and I wrote it down as he spelt it to me, "William Jerrard"—I have the name here, which I wrote down at the time—I asked him if he was a man of property, and trustworthy; he said, "Yes," he had known him many years, and done business with him, and he had always paid uncommonly well—some few days afterwards I sent the ten sacks of flour by my carman—on 12th Aug. Keene and Jarrett came to my</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185211220006"/>
<p>house together; Keene introduced Jarrett as his friend, who wanted to buy some oats—he said, "This is my friend Jerrard"—Jarrett then handed me his card—I said, "Why, this is spelt Jarrett?"—Keene replied, "That is right," and said he had made a mistake when he gave me the name of Jerrard—I asked him how he liked the flour—he said he liked the flour in my sacks better than that in the sacks marked "Longford"—I asked him some ques
<lb/>tions about his business—he said he had a very good business, an excellent shop; the lease previously was worth 700
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., and he had got it under peculiar circumstances, and should be able to do a good business, and he should want to buy a larger quantity of flour—Keene and he looked at some samples of oats, and directed me to send in ten quarters—he then said he should be a buyer of a larger quantity of flour, for he had some money, and he might as well lay it out in flour—I told him I should be very glad to sell him some, if he could find the money for it; they then both left—I saw Keene on the market, two or three days afterwards; that was the third time—I asked him what he thought of Jerrard—he said he was a man of plenty of money, and was going to buy some flour, and he had seen him with three 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. notes the night before, and he was sure he had plenty of money—Jerrard came again two or three days afterwards, with a person, whom he introduced as a neigh
<lb/>bour and friend, and who I have since learned is named Nicholls—he said he had come to buy fifty sacks of flour, if we could deal—I said I should be very glad to sell him some, or Mr. Nicholls either—Nicholls said he was not a buyer at present, but he should like to buy some hereafter—I sold Jerrard fifty sacks; he asked me what I would allow him for fetching it away—I said I generally did it myself—he said he had a horse and cart—I ultimately consented to allow him fourpence a sack—he said he would pay me for the flour, I think, on Monday week—he said he wanted to buy a considerable quantity, as it would improve by keeping in his shop, as he was only doing a small trade at present—he and Nicholls ultimately left my house together; they afterwards came back again; Nicholls stood at the door and said, "My friend Jerrard left home without money, and as this is to be a money trans
<lb/>action I will give him 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. of the money for this
<hi rend="italic">deal</hi>, and he has promised to pay me when we return home"—I told him no, I was not desirous of receiving the money yet; and Nicholls said it would be inconvenient for him as he was going to pay his millers, and should have to go all the way to Camberwell to receive the money of Jerrard—on the following day, the 24th, I think twenty-five of the sacks were fetched away; the other twenty-five were delivered on the following day—Jerrard came to me, I believe it was on the day after the delivery of the flour, and paid me 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—that reduced the account to 113
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.; he gave an order at the same time for twenty quarters of oats, at 18
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>., and thirty quarters, at 21
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>.—he said when he had the oats he would pay the balance altogether—some time after that he wrote me a note, in consequence of which I sent half a load of hay; I did not send any straw, because I had none—on my return home that night, my man told me something; in consequence of which I went that same night to Keene's house, in Harriet-place; I think Southampton-street, Camberwell—I found him at home; he said he was just coming up to my house—I asked him what this was that I had heard about Jerrard; that I heard he was gone to gaol, and that Jerrard's wife took in the hay, and she was drunk; that I could not under
<lb/>stand it—he said she was very much excited about her husband's going to gaol, and that he was gone for being security for a person for 40
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I said, "What does Nicholls know about Jerrard?"—he said he would go with me</p>

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—he said he thought he was a respectable man, and he had not known him long—I asked him if he would go with Keene to Jerrard, and get some particulars as to what arrangement he meant to make regarding my debt—he promised me he would go, and with that understanding I left—next day I saw Keene at the market; he said Nicholls had been to Horsemonger-lane and had seen Jerrard, and he brought a note from Jerrard to me—he said the money would be all right, and Jerrard was coming out of gaol next day—he said nothing about what had been done with the flour—I saw Keene once afterwards in Mark-lane, but not since; I asked him where Jerrard was, as he had not been to pay according to promise—he said be expected he would have been with me before, and no doubt he was over at the Elephant public house opposite; he went to look for him, returned, and said he could not find him—I went to look for him at another public house, but never saw him afterwards—on 8th Sept. I went to Jerrard's shop; the place appeared in a general state of confusion; I saw no flour there; there were a few twopenny loaves there—I have traced fifty of my sacks of flour to Nicholls's shop, and the corn and oats to a man named Brown, who is here—when I heard of Jerrard being in gaol, I asked Keene how he came to say he had seen three 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. notes in his hand—he said it was a mistake, that they were three fives—I was somewhere in the neighbour
<lb/>hood of Bayswater, and saw Jerrard through a public house window, as I was sitting in my gig; I went into the bar, and he was gone; I went into the back premises; he came out from an outhouse, and I gave him into custody—Keene was taken some time afterwards at Gloucester.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say you took down the name from Keene as Jerrard; allow me to look at your memorandum?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> It is in pencil (
<hi rend="italic">producing it</hi>)—I have not rubbed it out, it is as it was originally entered—I believe the 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. was paid to me on 26th Aug.—Jerrard paid it to me himself—I had then sent in ten sacks of flour, ten quarters of oats, and fifty sacks of flour—that amounted to about 113
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—the goods had been sold to him on credit, on the representation of Mr. Keene that he was a man of property—these were cash transactions—I was to be paid within three or four days after the delivery, or as soon as Mr. Jerrard could come down to pay for them—there was not to be a month's credit, it was to be within three or four days—I had known Mr. Keene about two years on the corn exchange—I had paid him money for some empty sacks—he has never sold for me on the corn market, nor bought of me for others—I knew him as representing the house of Avex and Terry—I had no dealings with that house—I did not refuse to supply them—I know a Mr. Franklyn—he is not a witness that I am aware of—I do not know what evidence he can give on this subject—I think I saw a written examination of his, but I do not remember seeing him in the witness box—I did not know him till after I heard of Jerrard being in gaol—he has been assisting me in making inquiries in this matter—he introduced me to a solicitor to conduct the business for me—until this Saturday he was a stranger to me—I never asked him to lend his carriage to convey the wit
<lb/>nesses backwards and forwards, but I believe he has voluntarily assisted a</p>

<p>great deal with the police and me—I think I once rode home with him myself—I never gave Keene any cards; but he had some from my house one day, in my absence—I never told him to get them, and never intended him to have them—it did not occur to me to give my cards to him—Mrs. Pinnock has employed him to purchace vegetables in Covent-garden—I only know of once—she is not here—I hear that he charged as much again as he paid.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PARRY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You do not know whether he charged commission for the vegetables or not?

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When the 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. was paid to you, Jerrard was to come on the following Monday, and pay the balance?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; it was the Saturday before that Monday that I found him in Horsemonger-lane gaol—there had been other goods delivered in the meanwhile—at the time the 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. was paid on account there was about 113
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. due, and after that I supplied goods to the amount of 50

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; my brother-in-law had occupied it for seventeen years—I did not know Jerrard before he came there—I did not threaten that I would get him out by some means or other; why should I?—he has served me with a copy of a writ—he has not charged me with slandering him—he came to know if I would serve him and trust him—I said certainly not, after what I had heard from the police—I summoned him for violent threats—I do not know that I have been very active in this matter—I have made my neighbours acquainted with what they were—I have taken the witnesses up to the police-court in my carriage—I have brought my neighbours here; they are witnesses; I brought them in company with myself—I introduced Mr. Pinnock to the attorney—I have been with the police to show where the goods were taken—my brother left the shop because he sold the business—there was no annoy

<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say Keene asked you whether you would serve him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; Jarrett asked me whether I would serve the baker's shop—I said certainly not, after what I had heard from the police—he came to me on 30th Aug.—I told him I was not aware whether he was one, but I had received information that fourteen of the party were arrant swindlers, and I should not serve them—I looked at him, and said it was very possible he might be one of them, for what I knew—he said then that he was the identical person who kept the shop—I then said, "If you will wait a few minutes I will make things comfortable for you, for you are wanted"—I went to the door with the intention of calling a policeman, and giving him in charge, but he went out, making use of the most dreadful and violent lan
<lb/>guage—it was most horrid; and Keene, who was with him, made use of the most violent threats—they afterwards came, and wanted me to give them 30

I have carried on business there thirty years—the prisoner was in my service—he has been so full a twelve month—he left me for a period of two months, and returned to me—before he came to me he lived with Mr. Sowerby, a pawn-broker of Chiswell-street—he was acting as my foreman in Oct. last—I left town on 15th Oct., and left the prisoner in charge of my property and busi
<lb/>ness—I returned in the evening of 26th Oct.—a person named Finch was in my employment—in consequence of something I discovered with respect to the accounts, I looked about me to see how things had been going on in my absence—on 28th Oct. I found some duplicates on the counter—they related to books that had been in pledge, and were out of time—the books are here (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—these are a portion of them—there were several parcels, some containing twelve or fourteen, but they had been all mixed together—when I left town those books were upstairs in the warehouse, packed in parcels; when I returned they had been opened—I found five books deficient—one of the duplicates was for a Bible, and a case of drawing instruments—I inquired for that Bible, and searched for it—I did not find it—the duplicates were my own, used in my own business—duplicates are generally affixed to the bundles in which the things they relate to are contained—I was told that some volumes of the "History of William IV." were missing—I do not know it of my own knowledge, I only learned it by inquiry—on comparing the duplicates with the bundles, I found out that five books were deficient—we do not particularize the articles in the duplicates, except in this case the Bible was named—we say "two, three, or six books;" or "one book"—I came to town on the 26th, and on the 29th I spoke to the prisoner about this—I called his attention to this parcel of duplicates—I do not think I showed them to him; I said, "There are some books missing, and here are a lot of duplicates, and I understand there was a Bible and a "Life of William IV.;" I don't see them"—he immediately went and brought a small Bible, and opened it, and found a mark in it which showed that it was not the one, and he said, "Oh! that is not it;" but he said, "I know nothing about them"—I said, "Here are also some numbers, parts of a Bible, that ought to be here; I don't see them"—I cannoti recollect that he made any reply to that—I then gave him into Inspector Brannan's custody—I afterwards went with Bran
<lb/>nan to the prisoner's lodging—my young man then pointed out some books—the prisoner was not present—they were the books which I had mentioned to the prisoner, and which he said he knew nothing about—they were a</p>

<p>Bible, two volumes of the "Life of William IV.," and the "Tourist in Italy, by Roscoe," which had a mark on it, I believe in my own handwriting—I believe that was one of the books forming a part of these—he had no right or autho

I have taken it home to try, and I have left it at home"—I said, "Well, bring it tomorrow, you should not have taken it home, there was no need"—in the afternoon I said to him, "You had no right to take that watch"—he replied, pulling it out of his pocket, "Oh I here it is"—he said he had been home for it—I then said, "There are these books, and the numbers?"—he said, "Oh! I suppose I must pay for the Bibles; some of them were in numbers"—I made no remark—I have since seen the watch—I have also seen another watch; they are both mine—before I left home, I left a gold lever watch in' the window—I did not miss it till about ten days after the prisoner had been in custody—that was the watch that Brannan took from the prisoner on searching him—I saw it taken from him, it had an Albert chain with it—there were two watches taken from him—one he produced, and one Brannan took from him—I had no suspicion that the watch he was wearing was my own—I have since examined it and find it is mine, I have no doubt at all about it—that is the watch with the Albert chain; the second watch was found on bim immediately on his being taken into custody, but I did not examine it then—Brannan has since produced it to me, and I identified it—the desks I had never seen.</p>

From information I received I went to Mr. Willard's house, at half past 1 o'clock on the morning of 3rd Nov., about ten minutes after the prisoner was given into custody—I found the fanlight of the side door to be smeared with treacle, and it was running down the door as well as round the frame, where the glass had been cut from—the fanlight was rather more than seven feet from the ground—the glass had been removed evidently by some sharp instrument; there was scarcely a bit of glass left in the frame, and you could see none by standing on the ground; but when we got up we could see a little piece at each corner of the bottom of the frame; it was cut as if by a diamond; some sharp instrument must have removed it down to the putty—after the door was opened I found a treacle plaister on the floor, about a foot and a half wide, with some of the glass adhering to it, which I have here now (
<hi rend="italic">producing it</hi>)—there is glass on it now—just by the handle, against the door, there was a mark of dirt, as though it was road dirt; it appeared to me that a foot of some person had just touched there—that was about half the distance between the door and fanlight—it was just the place likely to receive a foot; it would be the first resting place—I examined the prisoner's dress—I found some treacle quite wet on the front of his shirt—the stain is now visible—the right sleeve of the coat was besmeared with treacle, just about the part where it would be resting on the frame—it is dry now, but it was then wet.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner.</hi> The stain on the shirt is from beer.
<hi rend="italic">Witness.</hi> I have not the slightest doubt it is treacle; it was examined by three or four others.</p>

<p>—at that time I had nearly got up to them—the prisoner went a step or two forward, turned round, made a rush at me, and struck me on the left side of my cheek—I did not at first feel that I was stabbed—I caught hold of the prisoner, and said, "You stabbed me, you rascal"—he said, "Yes," you b—r, and I will do it again"—the blood poured out of my mouth and down my cheek—the prisoner struck me again—another constable came up—I told him I was stabbed, and he took hold of the prisoner by the collar, and threw him down in the road—I afterwards had my wound dressed—I am still very weak—I have lost a great deal of blood.</p>

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. was the price—I know there was some squabbling about the price—he left the shop—my boy was to take the boots with him, and he was to pay the boy—I saw the boy leave the shop and take the boots with him—the prisoner said the boy was to take them to No. 14, Sidney-street, and he was to bring back a pair of boot-legs to be refooted—in about ten minutes after the boy and the prisoner had left, something was told me—I went out of my shop, and saw my boy in Sidney-street—I also saw the prisoner, who was coming from the boy—the boy was going one way, and the prisoner coming from him—I met the prisoner; I asked him where my boy was—he said "Your boy is up there, and I have paid him"—I went after the boy, and the prisoner ran away directly—when I came up to the boy, I found he had some money—I asked him for it, and he gave me four half crowns and five shillings—I ascertained that the four half crowns were bad, and I set them apart from other coins till they were produced at the police office—I saw the prisoner again on 29th Oct., in custody at the station—he was in one of the cells, and there was another man there—I have no doubt that the prisoner is the man—the boots he had on at the station were the boots I had sold him.</p>

<hi rend="italic">haggling</hi>—the prisoner was in no haste to get away; he seemed desirous to make a good bargain—my shop is a small shop—the boots are hanging in the window in a glass case—it is not rather dark; it is a very light shop—I had never seen the prisoner before that I know of—lie was there altogether half an hour—he had neither a hat nor a cap on his head—he came to do his business with a bare head—he had a coat on—when the boy was gone I had some suspicion, and went after the boy—I saw the prisoner—I stopped and spoke to him—I said, "Where is my boy?" he said, "There he is; I have paid him"—I was then in Sidney-street—I turned, and saw the prisoner run away—he ran down towards Mile
<lb/>end—I ran after the boy, as I knew he would not leave the boots without the money—I then came back to run after the prisoner—he was running as fast as he could—he could run faster than I could—it struck me when he was running that something was wrong—the turning that leads to Mile-end is about forty yards from where I was in Sidney-street—I had not any con
<lb/>versation with the policeman about this case—he asked me if I knew the prisoner; I said yes—I do not know that I told him that I saw the prisoner running away—that question was not put to me before the Magistrate to my knowledge—it was not suggested to roe by the clerk of the Court to say that I wrapped up these coins in a piece of paper—the prisoner had these boots on his feet—I asked for a sight of them, and I can swear that they were mine—when I sold them they were new—the prisoner had worn them, because they had had gutta percha soles put on them—I can swear to a pair of boots that had been worn three months, and had been soled—these are the boots;</p>
