On 7th April, about 8 o'clock in the evening, Barnes was brought to the hospital—I found a small wound on the left cheek, just below the left lower eyelid—both the lids of the right eye were enormously swollen—there was no cut or wound there—there was no appearance of the injury to the right eye being inflicted with a sharp instrument—I could not then get a sight of</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185505070007"/>
<p>the right eye, the lids being so intensely swollen—as far as I could ascer
<lb/>tain, the eye was in the socket—she had lost the sight of that eye when she left the hospital—I believe she is not likely to recover her sight—the eye appeared to have sustained some internal rupture, which caused very intense inflammation—I do not attribute that to the wound on the left eye—that was a small, irregular, punctured wound—it appeared to hare been done by some pointed instrument—it might have been done by an instrument like this knife—the point may have been turned on the bone—the wound was close on the orbit—it was beyond the bone, into the orbit, for about half an inch, or rather more—the nose was not cut—it might so happen that the knife may have caught one eye while she was striking the other.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence.</hi> I sincerely deplore that this did occur; I was having my tea, and heard that a man was ill using my brother; I had a knife in my hand, cutting some bread; I went out, and the man made use of bad language to me, and was about to strike me; I put up my arm to prevent his hitting me in the face; he seized my arm, and twisted it; the young woman interfered, and I hit the blow in the heat of passion, which I much regret; I had no idea of doing any harm.</p>

<hi rend="italic">d</hi>".—I know that, because it is signed for as being taken out and delivered—the signa

<lb/>ten in the office, but not in my presence; it is not any of the items charged, and has nothing to do with them; this money was not paid to me on that day—no other person is deputed to receive money from the carmen but me—here it another item, "1 hogshead;" that was not paid to me on that day, I do not know whether it has been paid to me since—these crosses on 17th April are made by the prisoner—here is "Mr. Coster," scratched out; that was not paid to me, I have put no "Bring forward" there, but very likely, that may have been done since; I do not know by whom—these bills have been in Mr. Milton's custody since—the prisoner made these crosses, and not us—this "Fry and Co., brought back," is in the prisoner's writing; I suppose it is correct—this entry, "Not on," means that that package was not on his load—this "Desmond and Co.," scratched out, is transferred to another sheet, for another carter—here has been an entry in pencil, but it has been erased; it is something like "Bishop"—the prisoner was not the only person that took out empty packages—the carters pay me on the date that it is entered in this book; if they tell me that they have not received it, I put "Bring forward"—I do not know whether they sometimes pay me afterwards, because it would go into another sheet—these sums might not be paid to another clerk; no other clerk is deputed to receive money—if a carman comes home at night and says, "I have not received this money, "I write down, "Bring forward" and Mr. Milton makes out another bill the next time the carman goes that way; I should receive the money from the carman when he brought it.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Would not they be put into another lift?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, when the prisoner was going the same route; but I believe he only went that way once afterwards, and that was the day that the amounts were found to have been paid—a boy whose name I do not know goes with the cart as well, to see that none of the goods fall off; he is thirteen or fourteen years of age—I know that there was a puncheon left in the yard directed to Cash and Wright—I find no notice of it in this bill—I did not deliver the bill per

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I am sure that it was not in this state when I finished it, it was full length—when I find "Bring forward" on one of these sheets, my duty is to put it into another sheet—I do not know whether I omit it; I do not often do so, but the prisoner came and told me that he had not got the money, and asked me to bring it forward next time—he went, but I did not do so—it was found out after the prisoner told me.</p>

<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—it was placed on the rail itself—the effect of that might have been to throw a train off the line, or it might not; I cannot say—it would be liable to have done so; it is a very dangerous thing—there would have been an up train in about half an hour—I stopped directly, and sent a man who was at work on the side of the line to remove it.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is there any contrivance furnished to the front of the engine for the purpose of pushing away anything that may be upon the line?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, a strong bar of iron, called a life guard—that might or might not have pushed it away; I cannot say—if this had been thrown between the two lines it would have been harmless—it was being placed upon the line that made it dangerous.</p>

On Friday evening, 27th April, I saw the prisoner in a field near the line, minding birds—I saw him there for some time before the arrival of the train—I did not see him on the line at all—he was playing about in the field close to the line—I should say I did not see him nearer than a dozen yards to the line—I afterwards picked up the chair off the line—I had seen the prisoner a dozen yards or more from that place—Dixon beckoned to me, and told me to take the thing off the line, and I did so directly—it lay quite upon the line, with the broken part towards Windsor.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Where were you when you were beckoned to by Dixon?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I was at work by the side of the line, digging, I should think, 200 or 300 yards from the chair—I should have seen the prisoner if he had gone on the line—there is a regular footpath at that part of the line, a regular thoroughfare for persons—if I had been looking I could have seen any person putting it there—he might have done it without my seeing him.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. BALLANTINE</hi>,
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You told somebody about him, did you not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I do not know that I did; I do not recollect doing so—the station master asked me if I had seen anybody go across the line, and I told him I had seen three men—I do not know that it was through what I said that the prisoner was taken into custody.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you see three men go across?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, about half past 5 o'clock—that might be about an hour before Dixon called to me to take this off the line—no up train passed between the time of those three men going across, and Dixon calling to me—I know the prisoner; he lives at Hanworth, about two miles and a half from the place, with his mother and father-in-law—he was employed at bird minding in the field adjoining the line.</p>

<lb/>ditch. On the night of 27th April I was at a public house in Houndsditch, and put my great coat on a seat in the taproom—the prisoner and his wife were there—the prisoner went and sat by my coat—I missed it ten minutes afterwards—he and his wife were then gone—I saw no more of him till the following Thursday, when he came to the public house, and the waiter accused him, and told him that he saw him take the coat, and give it to his wife—he at first said that he knew nothing about it—afterwards he said that he knew the man who did take it, that it was pawned over in the Borough, and that he took part of the drink from the money, which it was pawned for; and if I would give him 18
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. a pot of porter, and a halfpenny to pay for the ticket, he would return me the coat—I let him go, and on the Friday evening he came in again, and desired me to give him 18

<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> Did you leave your coat in charge of any one?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No—there were several people in the taproom—the landlord came into the tap-room and told all the people to go out, as it was shutting up time—you were the first person that left, and you pushed your wife out of doors—I saw you on the Thursday, and we may have drunk out of the same pewter—I have known you for years, and never heard anybody say that you have done wrong before—you have been in that taproom many times.</p>

On Sunday night, 1st April, I saw the deceased, Joseph William Hart, about half past 11 o'clock—he came into the room where I was sitting—I know a woman named Ransom—she came to the door—she did not come into the room—Hart staid in the room some time, and ultimately went up stairs to his own room—I afterwards heard the cries of "Murder!"—I proceeded up stairs, and find
<lb/>ing there was no light I returned a portion of the way down the stairs, and called out for a light—while I was on the stairs the prisoner came down the stairs—I asked him what he had done, and what he had struck the man with—he said he had struck him with his boot—I caught hold of him by the collar, and we went down stairs, I walking rather behind him—he then showed what Hart had done to him—he had his nose bleeding—Hart then came down, and addressing Watkins, the landlord of the house, he said, "George, look what the villain has done"—he had then got an incision in his forehead, over the left eye, about three inches or three and a half inches long—it was a wound, and was bleeding very much—the prisoner was given into custody—I afterwards went into his room, and saw marks of blood on the floor—I found the top of a chair, which the policeman has.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you know anything of the origin of the quarrel?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I heard Hart say that he had a bad opinion of Mrs. Dean—I know nothing of his having struck the prisoner three or four times—the prisoner was not undressed when he came down stairs—I cannot say what the cause of quarrel was—Hart appeared a little excited; he was rather tipsy, but nothing materially the matter with him—he was excited by drink, nothing else.</p>

<lb/>stantly—I was undressed—I followed them, and saw Hart strike Dean several times, making use of a bad word—Dean said, "Hart, do you mean it? do you mean it?" and with that they fought, not many moments—I returned back to my room, and put on some garments—they were then fighting—I saw the prisoner strike him with something; it was not the back of a chair—he had too good a light in the room for me not to see—it was something much smaller than the back of a chair—there was a very good fire in the room, so that I could see plainly—Hart then came out on the landing, and called to Mr. Watkins, "George, bring a light; here is a b—game"—no cries of murder were uttered at all—Hart stopped till the light was brought up—he then went down stairs—the prisoner had partly got down, and he was given in charge.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> You did not see the actual blow struck?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I could not swear to it, but he received a blow as I went into the room—Hart was very much excited under the influence of drink; he appeared angry and excited against the prisoner at the moment, but there was never any previous quarrel, and then they did not quarrel, they came momentarily to words and blows—Hart struck the prisoner with fearful violence, and even knocked him down under the fireplace the first blow he gave him—Hart was a very much bigger and taller man than the prisoner; a very much more powerful man; he had not his boots on—before Hart struck the blows, he said that the prisoner had been having an improper intimacy with me, making use of a very filthy word; the prisoner said, "You are wrong."</p>

<hi rend="italic">police inspector, G</hi>). I apprehended the prisoner on Saturday, 14th April—I told him he must consider himself in my custody—he said, "For what?"—I said, "For assaulting a man in the City-road"—he said, "Is that all you have got against me?"—I said, "Yes"—he said, "Then I will be b——d if I will go—I attempted to take him, and he resisted violently, and called to his companions and said, "Will you see me taken for striking a saucy old man?"—he at last went quietly.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did not he offer to go quietly if you would not put the handcuffs upon him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I did handcuff him—we both fell in the struggle—ropes were brought and his legs were tied, and. then he said, "When I see my own comrades turn against me I will walk with you."</p>

I had charge of the prisoner at the station—while he was in the cell he asked me if the man was living or dead—I told him he was alive—he said, "Thank God for it! for it would have been such a disgrace if the man had died"—he said, "I was in the Castle public house on Tuesday, at 1 o'clock, when one of the militia men received a blow under the eye; old
