I am connected with the newspaper press—Mrs. Arnett, the mother of the prisoner Arnett, was the person who ordinarily did the domestic duties of my chambers—she is the wife of the principal porter of the inn—I usually took my tea at chambers, about 7 o'clock—on 28th March, I was in cham
<lb/>bers during the whole or greater part of the day—I dined at chambers that day—I saw Arnett during that afternoon—I told her I should not want the tea things laid, as I was going out—I went out at 9 o'clock tliat even
<lb/>ing—I left in a pocket book a 20
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note, any a 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note, and a purse con
<lb/>taining six or eight sovereigns, in a small drawer of a chest of drawers in</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185611240006"/>
<p>my bedroom; that drawer was locked—I had the key in my pocket, on a bunch—on my going out of the inn that evening, I saw Arnett standing at the door of her father's lodge—this (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) is my 20
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note—I know the number of it—I returned to chambers between 12 and 1 o'clock, nearly 1 o'clock, I believe; as I came into the inn, an intimation was made to me as to a robbery at my chambers—I found both the outer and inner doors shut—on going into the sitting room, I found every thing as I had left it; the dinner things were still on the table, nothing appeared to have been dis
<lb/>turbed—I then went into the bedroom, and found the drawer which I had left locked, standing open—there was no light in the room—I afterwards found a small mark on the lock, I believe it had been forced open—the 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note was still left in the pocket book, the 20
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note was gone—Mrs. Arnett, the prisoner's mother, had been absent from the inn for some time previously to the robbery, and she was still absent at that time—during her absence the domestic offices at my chambers were usually performed by a charwoman in her employment, and in the evening the prisoner Arnett usually came in—there were duplicate keys of my doors—I had one key for each door, and the others were kept at the lodge—I have seen Foreman at the inn; I do not think she had been there for about three months before this—when she was there, she was there in the capacity of a domestic servant to Arnett, the head porter.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is it not the cus

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> At 10 o'clock, after that hour they unlock the gate to let you in; at 9 o'clock the gate is entirely open—there is a porter's lodge at the gate—the gate is in the cus

<lb/>thing during the time of her service.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I should think for eight or nine months, possibly more, morning and evening—she used to let herself in with the key from the porter's lodge—a person named Price was the charwoman that worked for me in the morning at this time—I do not know whether she is here—she has not been examined as a witness—I am certain that I have a perfectly accurate memory of the even
<lb/>ing of 28th March—Foreman has been to my chambers since the discovery of the robbery; she was brought there—there was a lady residing at my chambers at this time—Foreman was brought to the chambers by a police
<lb/>man; only once I believe—I do not know of her having come since—I have not seen her at any other time—she only came once—I have seen her in the street since she has been out on bail, nowhere else—I have not spoken to her—I have not seen her at the inn—Mrs. Arnett was not going to leave at this time—she did leave three weeks or a month after; we did not part on ill terms.</p>

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note—she said that about April last, a young person named Betsy Arnett brought her a parcel, sealed up in five different places with black wax, containing a brooch given to her by a young French-man in the Temple-gardens, and asked her to mind it for her, as her mother would not let her wear it; and that about three weeks afterwards, as she was dressing for church one Sunday morning, she missed the parcel, and immediately communicated the loss to Miss Arnett, and when she came she appeared very much grieved at the loss, saying that it contained a 20
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note; that they afterwards went to a charwoman in Brydges-street, Covent-garden, where they mentioned the loss of the parcel—in consequence of that state
<lb/>ment, I went to Arnett's parents, but did not see her—in a few days she returned to town, and I saw her, and asked her if she knew Foreman—she said that she did—I asked her if she ever gave her a parcel—she said that she had not—I asked her if she had ever been to a charwoman in Brydges-street—she said that she had—I asked her for what—she said to have her fortune told—I asked her if she had mentioned to the person in Brydges-street about the loss of the parcel—sue said that she had not—I asked her if she did not tell her what the parcel contained—she said that she did not—after taking Foreman into custody, I took her to the porter's lodge in Clement's-inn, and confronted her with Arnett—I stated to Arnett sub
<lb/>stantially that which Foreman had told me, and she said, "Oh! Emma, how can you say so?"—Foreman said, "You know, Betsy, you brought me a parcel"—I do not remember what Arnett said, but she denied it—Fore
<lb/>man said, "You know you went with me to Mrs. Dent's, and mentioned about the loss of the note"—Arnett said, "Oh! Emma, how can you say such a thing?"—she denied the statement altogether—I afterwards put myself in communication with Mrs. Dent—I was present at the police court when this charge was being inquired into before the Magistrate, and heard Mrs. Dent examined; Foreman was then present at the bar—I saw Alice Dent sign this deposition (

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When you first went to Mrs. Arnett's, did you make a great many inquiries, not only about her daughter, but about Foreman?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I never inquired about her daughter—I made inquiries about Foreman—I ascertained that she had been in service some mouths, and the lady gave her a very good character—this was several days before she was in custody; I was making inquiries—I afterwards went to Mrs. Arnett's, and found that her daughter was in the country; she wrote to her to come up immediately, and she came—I had a conversation with Mr. and Mrs. Arnett before I brought Foreman there, and the girl answered all my questions by way of denial throughout—she knew that I was a policeman—I thought it in course of my duty to bring Foreman, and confront her with Arnett, and she, in the most natural manner, and without hesitation, denied everything, with the exception of going to the charwoman, which she said was to have her fortune told—she did not say that it was a long time ago—when she said, "Emma, how can you say so?" she said it reproachfully, and with vehemence—I did not take her to the police court; I told her father that she had better be there in the morning—she was examined at the police court, in Foreman's presence—she was regularly sworn—I do not believe her statement was taken down—I did not hear it read over to her—she was sworn in the witness box before she made the state
<lb/>ment before Mr. Henry; Foreman made a statement first, and from that statement Arnett was called into the witness box and sworn—I do not think Mr. Burnaby, the clerk, and the Magistrate, then asked her questions—since she was out on bail I have seen her more than once; I saw her at the Sessions, and one morning, about a fortnight ago, she called at my house, and rang the bell—that was since the last Sessions—I believe she had not been at my house before; I am not aware of it—a great many people call, but I can safely say that she has only been once—I have not been in her company besides—I have never been with her to Mrs. Dent's, nor seen her there—I did not say to Arnett, "Did not you go to the fortune teller in Brydges-street?"—I said, "Did not you go to the charwoman in Brydges-street?"—on my oath, I have not called that unfortunate woman a fortune teller up to to-day—after examining the girl, I never had a private inter

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You were asked whether Arnett did not vehemently deny that she had ever given a parcel to Foreman; was that after Foreman had said, "Betsy, you left a parcel with me"?

<p>29th Sept., I shut up the warehouse and left it all safe, about half past 10 o'clock, when I went to bed—my son was out—about 4 o'clock I was aroused by my son ringing the bell; and at the same time I heard a rumbling, rattling noise, as though it was a rattling of tiles, at the back—it sounded as if it was in the yard adjoining—I went down and let my son in; I then unbarred the middle door, and looked into the yard, and there I saw three bags containing a quantity of silk and goods, the property of my employers, worth upwards of 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. the bags were in the yard close by the window—those goods had been all safe the previous evening—I found that a panel of the shutters had been cut, and an entrance made through from the yard into the warehouse—there was no other door or window open—they had apparently gone in and out the same way—the place where the bags were lying, was about a yard or two from where I heard the tiles rattling; it is a very narrow yard altogether—a passage runs along there, leading up to the wall where the parties had come over; there was a rope ladder there—I have not seen the place where the prisoners were found, I know where it is—the rope ladder was placed against the warehouse staircase window, fixed round one of the iron bars—they could get from the yard on to the tiles by means of the rope ladder—there was no other way for them to get, but into the yard, where they were taken—the yard where they were taken is about ten yards from, our wall, where I found the bags—I told my son to call the police immediately.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; one warehouse faces into Steward-street, the other is a back warehouse—they are both on the ground floor, they lead into each other; the house next to the front warehouse is now empty—it was a Utrecht Company, for printing, or something; they have left about a fortnight—there is no communication between that house and the warehouse—the house on the other side is a bottle warehouse—my apartments are over the warehouse—the front entrance is by a street door, and there is a regular window which has shutters, which were barred inside—there is a room called a weavers' room; no one works there, it is a room where weavers wait to be served; the entrance to that room is in Duke-street; it is on one side of the yard, it is separated from the yard by a wooden partition, about ten feet high, covered in with glass at the top—on the other side of the yard is a narrow passage leading into the street, and right through both warehouses from back to front—that passage is divided by doors—the yard is about four yards long, and about a yard and a half wide the passage is separated from the yard by doors and windows; and then you could not get out into Duke-street without unbarring a heavy door—at the end of the yard is a kitchen; that does not lead in to the back ware-house—it was quite plain how the entrance had been effected, by the rope ladder; it could not have been effected by Duke-street, the doors were all secure; I examined them when I went to bed that night, and also when I came down at 4 o'clock, after the prisoners were taken, and I found all the doors safe—the bottle warehouse is at the comer of Artillery-street—the back premises of the Tower public house do not quite adjoin our back premises, they are contiguous—the noise of the tiles that I heard was on a shed at the back—they are all sheds and closets about there.</p>

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is there any ground for supposing that this Utrecht Company committed the burglary?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Oh dear, no!—they remained there for some time afterwards—I do not know whether the prisoners' attor

<hi rend="italic">policeman, A</hi> 411). About a quarter to 4 o'clock, I heard a call of "Police!" went to the prosecutor's premises, and found that an entrance had been effected through the back by cutting the shutter—I found a bag in the yard—I went round into Artillery-street, listened, and heard a noise at the back of No. 17—I sprang my rattle: City police
<lb/>man 622, came up, knocked at the door, got admission, and got into the back yard, and on to a water closet—I assisted him to get up, another party assisted me up, and I saw the prisoners standing together in No. 18 yard—Lusette exclaimed, "Here we are, we will not resist"—No. 17 is at the back of the prosecutor's premises, and No. 18 is the adjoining yard—a rope ladder was extended from the first floor window, which I saw, and there would be no difficulty in a person getting by it to the yard in two minutes—Lusette said, "There are three more in the
<hi rend="italic">mess</hi>"—in the bag were two
<hi rend="italic">jemmies</hi>, a jack bit, a screwdriver, and a gimblet (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—No. 17 and No. 18 were both locked outside, front and back—there was a person inside who lived at No. 17, and a person partly dressed.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did you knock at No. 17?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, a very short time before I was let in—a number of females live there—I saw a lodger outside No. 17—I cannot say whether he opened the door—I do not know who he was; I should know him again—the landlord was inside, partly dressed—No. 2, Duke-street is open all night—I do not think it is a brothel, or a lodging house; I do not know much of that neighbourhood—there is a sort of wash house, or yard—you can get into Messrs. Ballance's premises from there by getting through a skylight, and back the same way—No. 18 is a shop where they make sealing wax—I do not know whether the persons reside there—I do not think there was anybody there that night, because there was a padlock on the front door—the yard where I found the prisoners adjoins the Tower public house, separated from it by a wall twelve feet high—when I first went into Messrs. Ballance a back yard, the rope ladder was extended from the staircase window down into the yard—I do not think any persons who were in the yard could get into the wash house without using the rope ladder; they could stand on the top of the wash house, and tie the ladder to the staircase window, and with it's assistance could get in at the staircase window without going down into the yard—they made their entry on the ground floor—whoever made an entry made it from the yard—they had only to step off the rope ladder into the wash house—the water closet is the roof adjoining; you could get from one to the other—we found marks of violence from the skylight on to the tiles, which made us imagine that the entrance was effected by means of the empty house in Duke-street.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. SLEIGH</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When they said, "We will not resist," had you said something first?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, we did not see them—I did not say to my fellow officer, "We will search this yard," nor did I hear him say so.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Does the skylight open?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, from within, by pushing up—as far as I can judge, a person might have come through the empty house in Duke-street, and so on through the skylight—where they</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185611240012"/>
<p>made their escape there was a large hole broken through the lath and plaster of the wash house into No. 17 yard, and then we could see that somebody had been trying to scramble back into the wash house again—that was eight or nine yards from where I found them.</p>

<lb/>ment, as porter—goods have been missed from the warehouse repeatedly for several months past—I was in the habit of going out with a horse and four wheeled vehicle, called a
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>—on the morning of 4th Nov. I had assorted goods to take out, and placed them on the warehouse floor—it was the prisoner's duty to take the goods which I had assorted, and place them in the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>, and when he had done so, it was customary for him to come in and say he was ready, and then I would go out to him—on this occasion I did not wait for his coming in to me, but went down to my
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi> sooner than I usually did—when I got round the corner in sight of the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>, I observed that the prisoner was doing something underneath the footboard; before I had time to reach the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>, he held his head up pretty sharply, and saw me</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185611240015"/>
<p>approaching—he then jumped into the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>, to put the goods which he had into the body of the trap, and then went into the warehouse for more goods—while he was absent I examined the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>, to see what he had been doing under the footboard, and in the boot I found these four boxes, each containing a dozen neck ties—two are worth 18
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. each, and two 30
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. each—I took the boxes into the warehouse—the prisoner had no right to place them there—there was plenty of space in the body of the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi> for more goods than were in it—after this he accompanied me as usual with the
<hi rend="italic">trap</hi>—I asked him why he had put those goods in there—he made some obser
<lb/>vations which I did not clearly understand, and I said, "You have no right to put them there, Sir;" indeed, I believe I called him a d—fool for doing so, I was much enraged at it—he said, "I was not going to do any
<lb/>thing with them"—I went out, and returned as usual—those four boxes did not form any part of the goods that I was to take out with me that morning.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you able to say that from your own personal knowledge?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; on this occasion I had never left the counter, that I am aware of, after I had looked out the goods—these four boxes were not near the goods I had looked out—the prisoner is about seventeen or eighteen years of age—he has been in the prosecutor's employ
<lb/>ment about two years—the place where these goods were kept in the ware-house is seven or eight yards from my counter—there are about thirty persons employed in the warehouse; there are three travellers, each of whom has a companion, such as the prisoner was to me—the trap opens behind, with swing doors, and there is a boot in front.</p>
