On the afternoon of 10th September, about 4 o'clock, I was in Fore-street, and saw the prisoner carrying this bale of goods on his shoulder—I asked what he had got carrying there—he said he hardly knew—I asked where he was going to take it—he hesitated for a moment, and said, "To Blackfriars-bridge:"—I said, "Where have you brought it from?"—he said, "I brought it out of Wood-street;"—I said, "Where in Wood-street?"—he said, "I do not know, some man gave it me there to carry"—I was not satisfied with his account and took him to the station, and found the bale contained this property—it is directed to Tweedale and Sons, Wood-street—I found these four memorandum books on the prisoner.</p>

About half-past eleven o'clock on 2d September, I was in Bishopsgate-street, and saw the prisoner there—I was returning home; I called at a public-house at the corner of Acorn-street to have a glass of ale—whilst there I noticed the prisoner standing in front of the bar, and another woman near to her; they went out, and when I had finished my ale I walked outside, and the prisoner and the other woman were standing outside—they asked me if I would treat them; I said "No," as I was going home—the other woman pushed me, and immediately she did so the prisoner put her hand in my pocket—I felt her hand come out of my pocket, and immediately seized hold of her, and found the purse in her hand; I called out "Police"—I had seen one on the other side; he crossed over; previous to his coming over, about 7 or 8 persons surrounded me; the prisoner caught hold of my whiskers, I gave her in charge—I had some loose silver in my pocket, perhaps to the amount of 14
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. or 20
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.; the purse contained 2 half-crowns and 1
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. which was my own, the other belonged to my employers—I took the purse from her hand, and gave it to the officer—this (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) is the purse.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. RIBTON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was it not from the other woman's hand you took it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, from this woman's—it was not the other woman that put her hand in my pocket; the prisoner was in the act of handing it to the other woman, when I caught hold of her hand—I said so before the Lord Mayor. I am a commercial traveller, I travel in London and suburbs, about 8 or 10 miles out of London—I travel for James Bates, of Norton Folgate, tobacco and cigar manufacturer—I have been travelling for him for some time; I had been so that day—I went into the public-house to have a glass of ale—there was no one else there, in the apartment I went into—I first saw the two women standing in front of the bar—there</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="185809200003"/>
<p>was not one word between us in front of the bar—I will swear that I said nothing whatever to them—immediately I went outside the door, they were standing outside the door, and they asked me if I would treat them; I said "No," I wanted to go home; that was the first time that any conversation took place between us—I had not taken my purse out while I was inside the house—I had some loose silver in my pocket, and there was no occasion to take my purse out—I sometimes mix my own money and my employer's money together; I very often have to give change—it was my own money in the purse; that in my pocket was perhaps some my own, and some my employer's—I generally do carry my own money in my purse, but I have to give change perhaps 20 times a day, and if I have not change of my employer's, I take it out of my purse—I dare say plenty around us saw the purse in this woman's hand—I don't know whether any of them are here; when the policeman came they all ran away—I heard her say at the station-house that she never had my purse—I think the first time I heard her deny it, was at the station-house; I am not quite sure; perhaps she might have told the policeman, I did not hear any
<lb/>thing about that—I will swear that she did not say so the moment t the policeman came up, in my hearing—there were perhaps 6 or 7 people got round me immediately—I don't know what became of the other woman; she went away, I suppose, when she saw the policeman, as the others did—I had been in about 3 public-houses from about 6 o'clock, and had a glass of ale in each of them—I will swear I had not been in more than three—I cannot swear how many I bad been into in the day, because my customers are in public-houses, and I have a number of public-houses to go into; but I have no occasion to drink in all; sometimes I go to as many as 30 public-houses a day—I will swear I had not been in 30 public-houses that day—I might have been in ten—I don't believe I was in fifteen—I can't say how many I had been drinking in—perhaps I might have had something else besides ale that day; I cannot distinctly say; all I know is, I was quite sober at the time the purse was taken—there were 2 half-crowns in the purse—I put them in some time during the day or evening, and left the other loose in my pocket—some of it was my employer's, I cannot under
<lb/>take to swear it was all my employer's—I always keep my own money in my purse, unless I require it for change—I did not see the prisoner searched; I believe she handed the policeman the money immediately she went inside, from what I have heard—the other woman must have gone away, or I should have charged her.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> How long have you been in the police?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Four years and a-half—I did not know that I had no right to say that she had given a false address—she said whilst close to the prosecutor that she had not taken his purse—I don't know whether he heard her—that was not at the same time she put her hand in his pocket, saying what money she had—that was at the station—he said he had put some money in the purse, what, he did not know, but he felt certain some money had been extracted from the purse—he said that she had seen him put about 1
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. worth of silver into the purse, and at the station she pulled the money out—she said she had not taken the purse, several times—she said so on being given into custody, and going to the station, and at the station—the prosecutor was close to me—the other person had gone away—when I came up the purse was in the prosecutor's hand—there were two half-crowns and a penny; there is now 4

<lb/>thing—I had not seen the prisoner then, but he came in with two others—they talked about knocking up a game of skittles; and they said to me, "Coun
<lb/>tryman, you may as well go and see it fair"—they took me to another public-house—I went into the skittle-ground attached to it, with my bag of clothes with me—there were one or two games played—I am not able to say how much I drank, but it was not much—we had three pints, perhaps I might have had a pint—I afterwards felt quite stupid, I don't know that it was the drink made me so—I missed my clothes, and inquired about them—I could not find them—I walked away to go home, and the prisoner came behind me, put his arm round me, and took from my waistcoat pocket a silver watch—I had a coat on then, not a smock—my watch had a metal guard, which went round my neck—he broke the chain when he took the watch—I did not see him again till he was in custody—the value of the clothes was about 2
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>., and the watch 30
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—I am confident the prisoner was one of the persons, and he was the one who took my watch—I never saw him again till about a fortnight afterwards—I then saw him in Bishopsgate Station—he was alone—the officer was with him—I am sure he is the person.</p>

I told him the charge, and he said "Not me"—I found on him some thimbles and some peas.</p>

It was there said that I abandoned my husband at the church-door, imme

We then returned to Mrs. Burchell's, where he remained till 11 o'clock at night, when he left and went home to the barracks. I remained at Mrs. Burchell's till she found a situation for me at No. 16, Upper Baker-street, Regent's-park, where I lived some months, my husband coming occasionally to see me on a Sunday evening, unknown to my master, until being seen one Sunday, I was questioned about him, and on their inquiring about him at Mrs. Burchell's, she told them he was my husband, and I received notice to leave, when my husband took me to some friends of his at Westminster, where he left me, and did not come near me until I met him in the Edgeware-road, when he beat me in Mrs. Burchell's presence, and sent me home to my mother's in the country. There I remained some time without trying to have further communication with my husband. I heard by chance that he had his discharge, and some months after that he was dead. Eight years after this, having heard nothing whatever of my hus

<lb/>self, I, of course, thinking my first husband was dead, mentioned my first marriage as well as my second, which led to inquiry, and it was discovered that I had been misinformed, and that my first husband was still living.</p>

I am shopman to James Butcher, of 81, Long-lane—on 2d September the prisoners came into the shop about 4 o'clock—Leather asked me to show them some shawls out of the window—I showed them some—they said they did not suit, and asked to see some more—I told them that I had no more of the same quality—Roe then pointed to a parcel behind the counter, and said, "Let us look at those," and she went round the counter—I said I would show them the shawls—she said she thought she would save me the trouble—I then showed them the shawls, and I counted 7 in the parcel—Roe then asked me to show her another shawl out of the window—I went to the window for that purpose—before doing so I placed the 7 shawls on the counter, near the edge where the customers stand—when I brought the shawl from the window, Roe said, "Will you hold one corner while I see the size"—she laid hold of one corner and I held the other—I was near the window, and she at the other end—the shawl almost hid those that were on the counter—while I was holding it I saw the shawls on the counter move—Roe then said that the shawls would not suit, that the colours were too gay, and her mistress would not like them—she said that she had been told that Mr. Butcher kept such a nice assortment of shawls, and they were recommended there—I told them they were not such a good assortment as we generally had got, because we were taking stock—she asked if we would send some up to
<lb/>morrow at the Victoria Hotel, opposite the post-office—I said I would speak to Mr. Butcher about it, and if I did it would be about 4 o'clock—she said I should see a lot of servants there, but I was to go down stairs and ask for Ann—they then left the shop together—as soon as they were gone I counted the shawls that were on the counter, and missed one—I directly went after the prisoners—I secured Roe; another witness took Leather—a person named Shreeve gave me this shawl—the witness Morgan had given it to him.</p>

On Friday, 3d September, I went with four other officers to 2, Crown-place, Crown-street, Soho, between 7 and 8 o'clock in the morning—I found the street-door open and I went up to the two-pair—Bryan and James Brannan were with me—I had left the other two officers outside—I forced the door open and the first thing I saw was three or four children in bed in the first room—another room led out of that where I saw the two prisoners in bed—I said, "Well Mr. Ferryman, I have come to pay you a visit;" he jumped out of bed, and I said, "I have come to take you in custody;" he said, "For what?" I said, "For having coining implements;" he said, "You wont find much; you may find enough to give me a stretch, but not much else"—I called up Elliott and Cook—Bryant and Bran Dan then took the two prisoners—I proceeded to the mantel-shelf, and under an image I found 6 counterfeit sixpences of the date of 1846, they were wrapped separately in paper—I found on the top of that image which was broken, another little packet, containing 4 counterfeit groats of the date of 1844, wrapped separately—I went to a shelf in the room, and in a little box I found a galvanic battery plate with the wire attached, which had evidently been dipped in solution—this jar was full of acid—in a tea-cup close by, I found a 3
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. piece partly dissolved, and a cup containing a little fluid—I preserved a portion of the acid—in the box I found 2 files with white metal in their teeth—they apparently had been recently used—I found a canister con

<p>dipped—I could tell that the cup had been recently used—there was a little solution in it. I returned to the mantel-shelf and took up this book—Thomas Ferryman said, "Don't take that Mr. Brannan, that is our rent book"—I went to the cupboard and found some sand and several articles all necessary for coining—I found this pad which is for holding the mould when it is so hot that they can't hold it with their hands—these are articles used in manufacturing counterfeit coin.</p>

I will change it"—I said "Not quite so fast, you knew it was bad"—she said, "No, I did not know it; I took it of a cabman last night"—I said, "I am of a contrary opinion; I shall give you in custody"—the boy then left the shop—the prisoner said, "You need not do that, I will bring my husband; he will make it all right"—she then went out of the shop, and I saw no more of her till she was brought back within a quarter of an hour—I gave her in charge—I gave the half-crown to Holmes—they took it to the station, and I believe Emmett marked it—I did not go</p>

<lb/>tion to ship wheat to—I said, "Then the bill of lading you sent me was a forgery?"—He answered, "Yes it is a forgery, I do not deny that I have forged it"—I then asked what he had done with the property he had obtained upon those bills of exchange—he said, he had bought wheat with it, and shipped it to Scotland—I told him it was impossible to have done it in so short a time; he mentioned two vessels which he had dispatched with wheat for Scotland, and these vessels had been bought with the proceeds of the bills.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> How long have you known him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Since 1850, he was a merchant in an extensive and highly respectable way of business, to the best of my knowledge, at Wolgast—he told me, in the course of the conversation, that he had intended to ship the wheat to me—he said, if I had waited I should have had my wheat.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Anna</hi>—I know the prisoner, he was part owner of the
<hi rend="italic">Anna</hi>; he was in the habit of finding cargo for that ship—I did not in June last take any cargo of wheat to Scotland—I did take some wheat to Scotland for the prisoner in the spring of this year—I then returned to Wolgast; I found the prisoner there—this was in the early part of June—the vessel remained there until the 4th or 5th of July—she then sailed for Dantzig in ballast—the prisoner had spoken to me about a cargo for Belgium, but I would not stop any longer; he asked me to wait for it, but I would not—I found no cargo brought—the signature of Kell to these bills of lading is not my handwriting, nor was it written by my authority—I had no such cargo on board the ship at all.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> I believe you have frequently signed bills of lading before the goods have been on board?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> That question does not belong to this court—I did it once for part of a cargo—I have never done it more than once; that was in the spring—I do not know whether the cargo had been bought when I signed that bill of lading—that cargo was eventually shipped and properly delivered—I cannot tell how long before the cargo was received I had signed the bills of lading, about 8 days or so; it may have been before the cargo was bought, I do not know whether it was bought or not—it was in the latter part of June that the communication was made to me by the prisoner with regard to waiting at Wolgast for cargo—that was a cargo to Belgium; he did not say what part of Belgium—he only had hopes to send me a cargo for Belgium—he asked me that on two or three occasions—he mentioned Belgium on each of these occasions.</p>
