<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> A portion of the side, and the drop where it holds my ear ring—it has not been sewn on since—I never lost my ear before; I once had an accident to it with a heavy ear ring on; it was never sewn up, some sticking plaster was put on about twelve months ago by Dr. Brown—it was not a bite, I never said it was; I fell against a chair—I might have thought it a bite at the time, I and my husband were quarrelling at the time—I told Dr. Brown I thought it was a bite—this is a lodging house; three families occupy the house—the prisoners have lived there about four months—I had not been out all the day in question, not till about half past 5 o'clock, when I went to market to buy some goods to make caps—I came home about half past seven o'clock—my husband was home before me; he had been out all day; he had been drinking—I had not, I had nothing till after the accident happened, and then I was treated to 3

<hi rend="italic">Mack</hi>! are you going to see your wife murdered?"—I ran down and saw my wife lying in the pas
<lb/>sage, about three yards from the door, and the two prisoners by her; Mulvey had a flat iron; she struck my wife first, with what I did not know, but as she struck the second time, I caught her by the arm and took the flat iron out of her hand—it was dark; her daughter caught me by the face and tore my eyes, and tore the iron out of my hand—I saw Connor kick my wife—I was quite sober at this time; I had been drinking, but I had been two hours in my own apartment without tasting a drop of anything—I had not been quarrelling with my wife, we were the best of friends—she had not had any thing to drink that I know of, only a glass of ale that I gave her in taking her to the hospital.</p>

<lb/>wards, it was strapped up, not sewn up—she did not tell the doctor that we had had a quarrel, and that I had bitten it off—I had not had any quarrel with her on the day in question, we were the best of friends; we had had no quarrel for a month before—she does not drink; there is not a better wife or a harder working woman in London—sometimes I find fault with</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, and Mrs. Connor said that she would bring him the man to fight him, and she scratched his face with her hands—I live in service next door, but the prisoners are strangers to me—I do not know whether I am going to be married to Molloy—the first I saw of it was Mrs. M'Dermott on the ground—I heard nothing about it till a day or two after, when Mrs. Molloy and another woman called on me, and said that she had picked Mrs. M'Dermott's ear up, and showed it to me in a piece of brown paper.</p>

On 11th Nov., about a quarter past 12 o'clock in the morning, I met the prisoner on Ludgate Hill; she was alone, she caught me by the arm, and asked where I was going; I said I was going home—she pressed herself very close up to me, and dragged me underneath an arch; she was talking to me all the time I was under the arch, and I felt her hands outside my breast pocket—I instantly put my hand into my pocket, and found a sove
<lb/>reign gone—I had received a sovereign about an hour previously, and a few shillings—the silver, 2

<p>was gone out of the purse and the purse put back again, it was a leather purse; I have not got it here—I instantly accused the prisoner of taking the sovereign—she said she had not got the amount on her—a police
<lb/>man was close at hand, and I told him the circumstances, and gave her in charge—she said, "Nonsense, you must be dreaming, I have not got such an amount on me"—on my way to the station I missed a shilling out of my waistcoat pocket.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you a journeyman tailor?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, I am a cutter—I was coming from work that I had been doing on my own account below London Bridge, Deptford or Rotherhithe—I had not been drinking, all I had taken was a little gin and water; I left Rother
<lb/>hithe about half past 11 o'clock—I was only two or three yards from the arch when the prisoner spoke to me, she pulled me under the arch by the arm—I had felt the sovereign in St. Paul's Churchyard, I was feeling in my pocket for some paper—I resisted her when she pulled me under the arch, I wanted to let go her arm from mine—I told her it would suit me much better to go home to my wife than stand talking to her at that hour in the morning—she still hung on my arm—my purse was a small leather purse, I threw it away with vexation after the prisoner was locked up; I was vexed at being robbed so barefacedly—I told the policeman that I had lost a sovereign.</p>

On the morning of 11th Nov., about a quarter past 12 o'clock, I was on duty on Ludgate Hill—I saw the prisoner there, and I had seen her twice before that evening, between 10 and half past 12 o'clock—she was pulling two gentlemen about—I kept my eye upon her—I saw her take hold of Mr. Husberry by the arm, and give him a turn under the arch, and hold him there; it is the entrance to Pil
<lb/>grim Street—I went down the hill and up Martin's Court, and came on them at the rear up Pilgrim Street; I found them still there—I said to the prisoner, "You are out of your latitude here, I think?"—she said, "No, sir; it is all right"—I said, "I do not think it is all right;" and I said to the prosecutor, "Is there anything amiss?"—he said, "Yes, I felt her hand in my pocket, and I have lost a sovereign and a shilling"—I said, "Will you charge her with that?"—he said, "Yes;" and I took her to the station—I kept her hand confined all the way there, that she should not make away with anything—as she was standing in the station house, I saw her fumbling her hand about under her shawl—I said, "Let me see what you have got in your hand?"—she refused to do so; I took hold of her hand, forced it open, and found in it a sovereign, three sixpences, two halfpence, and a farthing—she was afterwards searched by the female searcher, who produced to me an empty purse and a latch key.</p>
<p>

I was on duty at a quarter to 7 o'clock on Wednesday morning, 11th Nov., in the gallery passage; my duty was to see the prisoners pass down the respective wards, and prevent them communicating with each other—I saw the prisoner leave his cell—he had his cell pot in his hand, in the usual manner—here is one of them (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—they are all made on one scale—as he passed by me, I took no more notice of him than I did of any of the other prisoners, neither he of me; but on passing me on my right hand side, he took the pot up in his hand as if he had nothing in it, which is a very rare occurrence, and hit me a very severe blow on my forehead: it caused me to stagger, and I was caught by several other prisoners—after striking the blow, the prisoner ran down into the yard—I have not been able to return to my duty since—he inflicted the wound which you see on my forehead—I was obliged to go to bed—I was taken up into the infirmary; I had a very severe fit through it—it bled a great deal; the blood streamed down my arm—I had reported the prisoner on the previous day—I saw him talking, and I spoke to him; he owned to laughing, but he made a laugh of it, and the second time I told him of it he said he was doing me no harm; I said, "No, but you are breaking the rules of the prison"—I reported him, and he got two days' cell and bread and water from the governor—when the blow was struck, I had my cap on, and it was cut through; the leather is four times doubled, and it cut through that, and then inflicted the blow.</p>

<lb/>ments in about three minutes; the pith of it was that he had been employed by some man to sell it—he said afterwards that he had been employed by a man and a boy somewhere near Petticoat Lane, to sell it; that he had been walking along with some skins under his arm, and that they accosted him, and asked him if he could sell it, or if he would buy it, and he said that he told them he could not buy it, but he would sell it for them—I asked him where they were, and he told me that two of them were outside—he took me out, and pointed me out Sculthorpe as being one of them that had employed him—I went about thirty yards before I found Sculthorpe—he was remaining with a truck—I asked him where he got the leather, and he said he had been merely employed to wheel the truck—I took him back to Summers and Isaacs, sent for a policeman, and gave them into custody—Thorne said afterwards, at the station, that if I had not been so harsh in locking him up, he would have told me everything about it, and would have given every information—he has not given any additional information to me since—there were seven dozen and nine skins stolen—I found seven dozen and one in the truck; one is still missing—the value of them is about 10

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. SLEIGH</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Of course before you engaged the prisoner you ascertained that he had previously borne a good character?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I did; he was first acting as clerk in my warehouse, at Birmingham, and afterwards became traveller in London—I believe he then resided at Chel
<lb/>sea; he acted as my agent here—I have a relation in the gold chain trade, for whom he also acted as agent—I am not aware that he acted as agent for other persons—I came to town about 20th Oct.; I had previously written to him on the subject of his accounts—when I saw him I had a conversation with him on the subject of certain moneys which he had not paid over to me, and he corrected a list which I made out—he told me he had not paid them over—that did not include the three sums in question—I asked if these had been paid, and he said they had, but had not been accounted for—he made no secret of it—I appointed to meet him on a subsequent day—I suggested that he should in the mean time endeavour to find the money to</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185711230021"/>
<p>pay me—I saw him on the Monday, and said, "What arrangement have you to propose?"—all he said was, "I have not seen my son"—I then gave him into custody—at the same time he handed me this corrected list—no particular date was fixed for the 25
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. to be remitted; he was to be allowed 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. per cent. commission beyond a certain amount, but that amount has never been realized, and therefore never claimed—I believe the prisoner has a large family—the apology he made for this matter was, that his daughter was ill, and was obliged to go into the Middlesex Hospital.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. GIFFARD</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> At the time he gave you this list, did he say anything about having retained these sums as per centage, or anything of that sort?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No—this is the list he handed to me; he went home and prepared it, and brought it to me on the Monday (
<hi rend="italic">By this the prisoner's deficiencies ap
<lb/>peared to amount to</hi> 247
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.)—the heading and casting up of this is mine; it extends from March to Sept. of the present year—I had not the slightest idea that he had sums of this magnitude in his hand—he regularly furnished me with the ordinary accounts from March to Sept, in the way of business—those accounts are here, none of these sums are included in them.</p>

<hi rend="italic">chucked</hi> it down on the counter, and said, "Go and pass your bad money somewhere else; don't come here any more"—she went away without drinking her beer—when she left I followed her—she went into Whitechapel Road, and got into company with a man about eighty yards from my house, and I saw the man put his hand into his pocket and pull out a lot of shillings; he gave her either one or two—they then went on to the White Raven—the prisoner went in there, and the man stood outside waiting—I went into the White Raven in three or four minutes, and the prisoner was standing before the bar—I said, "Why are you here again, passing your bad money?"—she made no reply, but Mrs. Kerridge, the landlady, said to me, "Do you know her?"—I said, "Yes, she left my place five or six minutes ago, trying to pass a bad shilling to me"—the prisoner made no reply—the shilling which she had uttered to me I gave her back, after bending it with my teeth.</p>
