<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) by post—we have a customer named the Honourable Mr. Stuart—I had not known the prisoner at all before the receipt of that letter—she had not been a customer of our's before, that we know of—in consequence of that letter I gave directions to a person named Seymour, in our employment, to have it executed—a few days after the receipt of that letter I also received this second letter (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) a few days after I had sent off the bonnets—about November 19th I received No. 3, which I also handed to Miss Seymour to be executed—the amount of the articles supplied in consequence of those letters is a little above 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—before this time we had had a customer named Tyrwhitt; a lady—I do not remember whether it was Jane Tyrwhitt—I think that was in 1856 or 1857—it was for something very trifling; we put it down as a bad debt—whatever the goods were they have not been paid for.</p>

I am a hosier, of 100, Oxford-street—I know the prisoner, and am acquainted with her writing—these three letters are in her writing—I know her by her own name as Mr. Tyrwhitt—I have had communications from her iu other names—I never knew her as the Hon. Mr. Stuart—I should think I have known her twenty yean, or nearly so—she has never gone by the name of Stuart during that time, to my knowledge, excepting in this case; but she has written to me in other names; that of Mr. Wilmot, of Gore House, Richmond, and Mr. Jones, of Tenby, South Wales—this other letter (
<hi rend="italic">One containing directions about the parcel</hi>) is also her writing.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> You say you have had communications with her in other names; and supplied goods in those other names; have you been paid for them?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, by Mr. Lewis, her attorney—I do not know whether her proper name is Mr. Tyrwbitt Jones—I do not know that she had a fortune left her, and afterwards went by the name of Tyrwhitt—I do not know that her husband changed it, but I believe her brother did, and took the name with the title, but am not sure—she gave me a cheque upon her trustees about two years ago—that cheque was not paid—I subsequently gave it to Mr. Lewis for a cheque of his—these letters are unmistakably in her writing and in her natural hand—I do not know that she has been very eccentric all her life, suffering miserably in mental health—I don't know that she was in very miserable health two years ago; she was travelling about then.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> She gave you a cheque on this occasion, and you ultimately got a cheque from Mr. Lewis?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, for a portion of it—I did not take proceedings, or threaten them, before I got anything—Mr. Lewis applied to me about eighteen months afterwards—the goods were obtained in the name of Wilmot and Jones—I subsequently suspected, from some imformation that I had, that she was not that lady—I met her at Reigate and she then acknowledged that she was not, and gave me a cheque for a portion of her dividends—her husband had inclosed me a cheque for 10
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. and Mr. Lewis gave me a cheque for the rest—I have received it all.</p>

I am the wife of a gardener in the employ of Mr. Wooding, of Petersham—I remember the prisoner living at Rose-cottage, Leather-lane, Petersham, in the name of Tyrwhitt—she left a fortnight before Christmas—they were there a little better than six weeks—they took it for two months—I was engaged as cook—it was a furnished house—I remember going to the Star and Garter—Mr. Tyrwhitt told me to go there, and ask for a box directed to the Honourable Mr. Stuart—I did so—I got the box and brought it—this is it—I gave it to Mr. Tyrwhitt—the first box I brought was about a week before she left—the last was on the Saturday before the Tuesday on which it was taken away by Mr. Cole—the prisoner sent me for the second box—she gave me the same message as about the first, and I went to the Star and Garter, and got the box—a young man, who is here as a witness, questioned me about it, and that is how it was found out—I gave it to the prisoner on the Saturday, and she was taken away on the Monday following.</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186001300003"/>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did the young man question you where you came from?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; he asked where the Honourable Lady Stuart lived—I told him I did not know, but that I was sent from a lady at Petersham—he said, "What is your name?"—I told him, and by that they found it out—my mistress did not seem wrong in her mind: I thought she was once; she seemed very dull, and could not sleep, and was very restless; but she always ordered everything in a proper way—I never expressed that she was wrong in her mind—I did not say she was not right* in her mind, because she always appeared to me to be right.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METOALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When was it that she was so restless; how long before the police came?

<hi rend="italic">Police-sergeant.</hi>) About 3 o'clock on Tuesday, 29th November, I went to Rose-cottage, Petersham—I rung a bell, and the servant came—I asked the servant whether Mr. Tyrwhitt was at home—she said she did not know—she left me, and I followed her up stairs into the first floor front room—I heard the servant speak to the prisoner, and tell her that two gentlemen wanted her—she said, "Tell them I am not at home"—I went in and said, "Good morning, Mr. Tyrwhitt; I have come on very unpleasant business"—I did not know her before—I said, "I am a police-officer; I have come to apprehend you for obtaining three bonnets in the name of the Hon. Mr. Stuart; also for obtaining goods of Messrs. Lewis and Allanby, of Regent-street"—she clasped her hands and said, "Oh, my poor children"—she asked me to wait till Mr. Tyrwhitt came home—I told her that I could not—I did wait half an hour before she spoke again—Mr. Tyrwhitt then came in and he assisted in putting on her shawl and bonnet—I said that I wanted the three bonnets she had obtained, and if they were not given to me I should search the house—she said to the German governess, "Give them what they want"—the governess opened a box, and took out two bonnets; the third had been sent back—I also found three hats there with the name of "Heath, Knightsbridge, hatter to the Queen"—I did not take them away at that time—on the way to the railway station she said she knew she had done wrong herself; she did not mind what she suffered herself, but she hoped I would look to her poor children—I went down to Windsor on the 13th, I think, and made inquiries.</p>
<p>

<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) are them, and that is the box in which I sent them—I have not been able to find any Mr. Vernon, or any such place as Close House—I have made inquiries, and cannot find Mr. Vernon—the bill I directed to her, came back through the post—I never saw the hats again till the constable produced them.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Read</hi>: "Mr. Vernon begs Mr. Heath will be so good as to send her two hats of the Spanish shape, No. 9. She wishes them to be as good as possible, with handsome tufts. One young lady's measure is 21 1/2 inches, and as she has the fullest face will require a somewhat larger hat. The other's measure is 20 inches,</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186001300004"/>
<p>and of this size she wishes one of the white straw hats, No. 26, either trimmed with velvet, or bound with velvet and trimmed with ribbon. Mr. Vernon saw one ready trimmed at Mr. Heath's. If they could be sent on Wednesday she would be very glad; to Mr. Vernon, Close House, to be left at the South Western Station, Windsor."

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was not one of the bonnets returned finally?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; after she was taken—it had not arrived before she was taken—I got it from the railway—articles are sometimes kept a week there—I think the third letter relates to it.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">This being the case for the prosecution</hi>,
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. GIFFARD</hi>
<hi rend="italic">submitted that it wa not proved that this was not done by Lady Stuart's authority, who, the prisoner herself stated, lived near Bath, and therefore that there was no case for the Jury: that though the prisoner admitted that she had done wrong, it was impossible to say whether that statement applied to this case or the next.</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>
<hi rend="italic">submitted that if the order was not given with a dishonest intention, the goods would have been ordered to be sent to the prisoner's residence and not to tlie Star and Garter. The</hi>

<lb/>square—I have attended the prisoner for, I think, twenty years—she suffers from a disorder of the head—I have seen her delirious on several occasions, owing to a nervous pain in the head—I remember on one occasion in 1858, finding her in my house in such a state that she could</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186001300006"/>
<p>give no account of herself at all—she was in a wretched condition as to dirt, and I believe her relations were in search of her at that time—she continued unable to give an account of herself for at least ten days or a fortnight; I do not quite recollect—I procured some lodgings for her in North Audley-street—she has been suffering from that disorder, at long intervals, ever since I have known her—she has always suffered from neuralgic pain in the head to a great extent—I have no memorandum of attending her at the time this transaction is alleged to have occurred, but I know that she came to consult me about October—she was then suffering from neuralgia to such an extent that she could scarcely bear the light, and could scarcely speak—she was immensely prostrated and dejected—I have not known her eccentric, except under the influence of intense pain in the head—I should not be in the least surprised at her ordering things in the way she has, without being aware of the importance of what she was doing.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Might she order things without knowing that she was giving a wrong name?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I do not know—I do not believe that when she gave the name of the Honourable Mr. Stuart, she really believed that she was the Honourable Mr. Stuart—her husband's name is Tyrwhitt Jones, but I always knew her under the name of Tyrwhitt—I have never known her as Mr. Wilmot, of Gore House, Richinond, or as Mr. Bathurst, Mr. Thomas, or the Honourable Mr. Massey—I think it is very likely that she assumed different names when she wanted goods—her mania would not assume the form of paying for the goods as well as ordering them—it is merely a mania to possess, no matter whether it is paid for or not—it is called
<hi rend="italic">cleptomania</hi>, which in plain English means, a mania for stealing—I do not offer an opinion as to whether a person who has that, ought to be held accountable—I think she has not the strength of mind to know that she was doing wrong—I account for her giving a different name, because I think anything would be done by persons under that disease to procure what they want—I have heard the evidence in Court to day, and I know her circumstances—I do not recollect any instance in which she had been drinking—I have not the least idea whether she did drink, but I think not—I only knew her as a patient at long intervals—I do not know where she lived before she was at Petersham—I sometimes did not see her once a year—I once went to her house and saw her friends—whether her husband has been through the Insolvent Court must be left to report, but I think I have seen it in the newspapers—having known her for twenty years, and knowing that she has a certain amount of income, I must consider this to be a case of mania, but if she had not that income, and it was done from absolute want, I should not believe that it was cleptomania—from the symptoms I have seen I should not have ventured to swear that it was cleptomania; if I had known nothing of her circumstances, her income, and her connexions.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Policeman N</hi>, 71). On the evening of 29th December between 7 and 8 o'clock, I was on duty in the High-road, Islington, near the turnpike—I saw Sharpe passing along the road—he had a bundle under his arm; I was going to stop him, and he threw down the bundle and ran away—I puraued him, and after a long chase he was stopped by a gentleman—I saw him stopped—he dropped two silk scarfs, and this brush (

<lb/>coat and his shirt—I did not find the bundle at all—I went to the church of St. John's, Holloway, on the Saturday—I examined the windows and found that an entry had been made by breaking the glass—these are the lead framings of the diamond window—there was an aperture made large enough to admit the body of a man—I found the door entering into the vestry room forced open—this (

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Sharpe. Q.</hi> When you first saw me were you standing in the road along with another policeman?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; I do not know that he followed after me when I came to you—I had to run a quarter of a mile before I got you—if I had got hold of you I should have got the bundle—when I had got hold of you I asked you where you had got the things from, and you said you had found them—you dropped the two scarfs down at the gentleman's feet—I took the brush out of your pocket.</p>

I am an unfortunate girl, I live at No. 2, George-court, Fox-court, Gray's Inn-lane; the prisoner, Campbell, who is thedeputy landlord, lived underneath me in the same house—I know Slater and Brown—they lived in the same court, a door or two off, but they had been away some time, and they came back about two days before they fetched away this property—I do not know anything of Sharpe—on Friday morning, about a fortnightago, I recollect Slater and Brown coming to the house where I and Campbell lived—Campbell was in bed when they came in—it was between 6 and 7 o'clock—I was overhead—I heard Slater say to Campbell, "Get up, for we have some property next door, in the parlour"—and I heard Campbell say, "I will get up," and with that he got up and went down stairs, but I do not know whether he went into the room or not—about two or three minutes after, I saw Slater come up stairs with a bundle—I was looking out of my window and I saw him go into the room with the bundle, and about half an hour after that I went down into Campbell's wife's room, and I saw two</p>

<p>black robes, and I do not know whether it was one or two white robes—they were in Campbell's room—a little after that I saw Campbell in the court talking to Slater and I saw Campbell give Slater separately two half-crowns.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Slater. Q.</hi> Where were you on 13th instant between 6 and 7?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I was in my bed when I heard you and Brown at Campbell's door—I knew it was you, because I had known "you such a, time—Campbell got up and went down stairs—I saw you bring up a little bag—I can't say what it con

<hi rend="italic">Sammy</hi> was at home with his mother at the time—he was not doing three months—he is not doing three months now; it is false—I cannot swear that the two half-crowns Campbell gave you were not for whitewashing his rooms and kitchen at Fullwood's-rents, but I know what you sold him—I saw you come out of the next-door parlour with the bag, into the court—I saw you go into Campbell's room with it—I was looking out of my window—I heard you—there is nobody living there—I cannot swear that you did not leave the bag there.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Campbell. Q.</hi> If you saw the thing in my room on the Friday, why not give information there and then?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Because I did not—it was between 6 and 7 in the morning that I saw the things there—there is a lamp not far from the window which shows a light—I got out of bed between 6 and 7, and saw you come up stairs about two or three minutes after.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Jiru. Q.</hi> You say you saw a bag empty; did you see the contents lying by the side of the bag?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; the things were lying on the bed by the side of the bags—I saw the two black robes.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Slater.</hi> On the Saturday night previous to giving us in charge, a female that lives in the court brought home two gentlemen. One of them had a leather bag; and this witness went to the room with the other woman, and about half an hour afterwards the gentleman went away without his bag. They broke the bag open, and put the things in our empty room, and then wanted to prove that one of us did it</p>

<p>breaking into a church in Holloway; he said he knew nothing about it—I searched the room at once, and I found some pieces, apparently portions of robes (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—there was a portion of the robes cut up—I found them in a white linen bag, and a portion in a drawer—there were some other things—I then left him in the custody of another officer, and proceeded to 4, in the same court, where Brown lives—I found him there—I took him in custody—I told him that I should take him in custody for being concerned with others in breaking into the church at Holloway; he said he knew nothing about it—I told him I should search him—I found a knife and a screwdriver wrapped up in paper, some matches, and a candle in his pocket—I conveyed him to the station, aud returned again to George-court, where I found Campbell; he was standing in the court—I took him into custody—I told him I should search his room—he said his old woman had not come home; the padlock was on—I told him we could not wait—he took us up and showed us the room, and requested us to break open the room, and we did so—ou searching the room I found a good many pieces of black robes, all cut up; also some red velvet cut up into different pieces—these two pieces (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) are what I brought away from there—this piece is a portion that was left on the communion table—they cut the middle out, where all the gold letters were; and after they got it home this was taken off from the gold letters, and the gold letters taken away; it exactly fits the part that was left—I have not seen Sharpe till this morning, I know him and Brown to be companions for several years.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Slater. Q.</hi> Were they all the portions of silk that was in my room?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> There was a jacket resembling something of the same—I did not bring it, because it was very old—I can't say whether these cuttings came from that; it did not appear so—you said it was so.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he say so in the room?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; I looked at it, and said I did not think it was—I have not brought it—I left it with the prisoner's wife—one seemed finer cloth than the other; it was older and finer—I believe it was a finer cloth; I would not be positive—I did not find any thing else at Slater's; all these were found at Campbell's.</p>
<p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I did not notice it so minutely.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Campbell. Q.</hi> How long before you took me in custody did you come and search my place at Fullwood's-rents?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> About two hours—that was another place where you are deputy—that was respecting something else—I did not find any thing there—I went about the carpet-bag affair—I came up to Fullwood's-rents from information that you were generally in the habit of taking the property there—I searched every part of the house—I came to you about 10 o'clock at night, with three or four more officers, and said I wanted to search your place about a carpet-bag—that was at the place in Fullwood'a-rents; and at 12, when I came down to George-court, I said, "I will take you into custody on suspicion of buying some things"—you did not tell me you lived in Fullwood's-rents.</p>

I am a watchmaker at 62, Cornhill—I was in my such in the evening of 19th January, about 6 o'clock—the prisoner came in and asked to look at a gold hunting-watch with a white dial to it, which was in the window—my son brought a tray of gold hunters out of the window which contained fifteen gold hunting-watches—I placed them before the prisoner—he directly picked up one with a gold dial to it, saying as preferred a gold dial to a white one—he looked at a number of the saying he and said that his brother had purchased one of me before at 28 guiness—after some time he selected oue for himself at 30 guineas, which was placed on one side for him—he then asked to look at some gold chains—my assistant got several out of the window, which I showed to him, and he selected one at 25
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—I then sat down to make out the account, and by the time I had finished it the prisoner said he should like to have his initials engraved on the seal which was on the chain—he said his initials were R.S. and that his name was Robert Somers—I told him that the engraving of the seal would take until 1 o'clock the next day, at which time he said he would come for the watch and chain—he asked me if I should require a deposit—I told him it was usual in such cases, and he put his hand in his pocket and threw down a sovereign—while I was making out the account, I saw him take up this chain (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) from the counter—it was one of those which he had been looking at—it is a very pliable chain—lie put it✗ the palm of his left hand, and immediately after that I saw him take up this large chain, and put that into his left hand—he held the two in that way, dangling one end of the large chain over his finger—it attracted my attention—I saw the seal of the small chain distinctly in his hand at the time he was dangling the larger one, so that I knew he had two chains in his hand—I watched his hand very closely, and I saw him afterwards drop the large chain on the counter—I am perfectly confident he only dropped the large one—he soon after that left the shop—I followed him and</p>

<p>beckoned to my assistant to follow me, and the moment we got outside, the door I said something to my assistant, and he brought the prisoner hack—I then told him that I thought I should like to show him one or two other chains before he want and I desired young man to get a tapered wire chain out of the window to show him—that was the chain which I knew the prisoner had got in his pocket—my young man looked through the window, and told me the chain wap not there—that was said in the hearing of, the prisoner—just at that moment I saw under the prisoner's left hand something shining through the fingers—I had seen the prisoner immediately after he came back into the shop pass his left hand behind him, then bearing of the prisoner—Just at that momet I saw under the prisoner's left hand something shining through the finger—I had seen the prisoner immediately after he came and place it on the counter—I the moment I saw something shining through his fingers I went round to the side of the sounter and lifted up his hand, and there was this gold watch—I "Halloo, what watch is this?" taking it up—I looke at to satisfy myself that it was one of my yatohes, and finding that it was, I said, "This is my watch, you have stolen it; you have just now taken it out of your pocket, and you have a chain of in your pocket"—the prisoner made no reply concerning the watch, but he began to talk in rather an incoherent manner, and said, "You charge me with having one of your chains in my pocket, Mr. French; you had better see if it is not upon your counter amongst your other chains"—I said, "No; if it is not there"—but I looked again, and there I found the chain—I had looked in the tray where the chains were when the prisoner came back, and after I had told my young man to get the chain out of the window—the prisoner at that time passed his hand amongst one or two chains on the counter, just touched two or three of them, and said "No; I don't thick I shall change; I shall keep the one I have selected"—before he said that, while my young man was looking for this chain in the window, I passed my hand through all the chains on the counter to see if this one was there and it was not there—the chain is worth eight guineas, and the watch 20

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was the gas lighted at this time?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—my shop is rather large—all the chains were kept in the window, hung up on hooks—it was when he came back into the shop that I saw him handling the chains; that was before I saw the watch on the counter—I did not put other chains before him—I only said I should like to show him one. or two others—the chains were still on the counter when he returned—they had not been removed—I should think there were ten or twelve—my sop was left in the shop while I and my assistant went out—I think they were all Albert chains—there might possibly have been one or two long ones amongst them—they remained on the counter till the policeman, came—when the prisoner selected the watch the tray of watches was removed by my young man, as soon as the prisoner asked to look at the gold chains—I did not see where he put them—I should think from the time I had finished making out the account until ho left the shop it must have been a quarter of an hour—he was not dangling the chain in his hand all that time—he put down the large chain some time before he left the shop—we were a long time talking about engraving the seal—he remained in the shop ten minutes or a quarter of an hour after I saw him dangling the chain, and perhaps seven or eight minutes after he had put it down—he than walked pot of the shop—I walked after him—I did not detain him, because, I thought it was necessary to let his possession in orderd to establish the robeery—it appear that I was mistaken in that point, but I thought such was the case—I was sure</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186001300020"/>
<p>that he had taken the chain, and I am quite certain of it still—I have an doubt that he placed it afterwards on the counter when he was looking over the chains—I don't know how the watch went; I did not see it go—he was in the shop the second time probably three or four minutes before I saw the watch near him—when I said, "This is my watch "the prisonor made no observation—I sent for a policeman immediately, and, as he did not produce the chain, I gave him into custody—I rather think it was before I gave him into custody that I found the chain, or else it was immediately after
<lb/>wards; but I gave him into custody for stealing the watch—both the watch and the chain were prominent in my mind—after I had seen the watch and under his hand I knew that he must have stolen it, because I knew it was not there when he came back—I had handed all the watches from the counter to my young man—my assistant and I were not half-a-minute out of the shop when we went after the prisoner, and my son was left in the shop during that time—there were two other persons also at the back part of the shop, one a watchmaker, and the other an assistant, both in my employment.</p>

I am ostler at the Waggon and Horses, at Ealing—on the Monday before the 16th September the two prisoners and another man came up in a cart—the horse and cart was left at the door—they remained there over three hours—the cart and horse remained at the door the whole of that time, in my care—they were in and out of the tap-room and parlour—the tap-room is on one side of the bar, and the parlour on the other—there is a passage which leads directly through the house into the garden, and a staircase leading from the passage up to the first floor—my mistress's bedroom is the first door on the first floor—they were in and out of the house many times that day, and passed along the passage several tinea—on Monday, 16th September, they came again about 2 o'clock, in the same cart, the same horse, and the same harness—I am certain the prisoners are the same persons—they spoke to me many times—Clark asked me the price of beans—I had got three other horses attending to outside—we had no other conversation—they were in and out of the house several times while they were there—they came in and out of the front door, opposite the garden; along the passage which leads up the stairs—they had their refreshments in the parlour, on the left-hand side—they were there for about three hours on that day—they had some half and-half and gave me some gin, and then they went away like a shot—about eight or ten minutes after they were gone I received some information, in consequence of which I took a fly directly, and followed them to Notting-hill—I heard of them all along the road, and lost trace of them at Notting-hill-gate—before I went after them I went up to my mistress's bedroom, and saw that the cash-box had been broken open, and some odd silver and some papers were scattered all about the bed—the door of that room was usually kept locked—I took two police with me in the fly.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Clark Q.</hi> How many minutes do you suppose you stopped up stairs?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not more than half a minute—there are three rooms on that floor; one sitting-room and two bedrooms, and this room is just at the top of the stairs—you only went tp one drawer—there are four large drawers and two small ones, but only one was broken open—it did not take me long to get into the fly; it was all ready—I did not see you or either of the men go up stairs or come down; you only walked about—you could not go to tne garden without passing the staircase—a traveller was also in the place who I have had for three years—I have seen, him once—John Thorpe is the</p>

<p>man who was lying about in the house—he was out of a situation, looking for employment—I know his father—I saw him about there for a forting afterwards—he remained there some hours afterwards on this day—you asked me the price of beans—that was to take my attention off—I did not lead you in at the back gate and show you a box—I have been in a court of justice before—I was here about some bad money twelve or eighteen months ago—I apprehended the two men on horseback—if I had had the same horse now I should have had you.</p>

I am landlady of the Waggon and Horses at Brentford—on 10th September I was at home till a quarter to 11 o'clock—I then went to town, leaving everything safe—I left my bedroom door locked—it is on the first floor, and left the key with the barmaid—I left my cash-box locked in a drawer which was also locked—I had just taken out as much money as I wanted from it, and left 116
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. a guinea, and a threepenny
<lb/>piece—there was 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. in notes, and 50
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. in
<hi rend="italic">gold</hi>—they were rolled up in tens—the money was intended for the brewer and distiller, who would have been paid on the Monday—I returned home at a quarter to 5, and found my bedroom door burst open, tearing the lock from the wood-work; the caaly box was turned upside down on the bed, the purse turned out, and the money all gone; the door and and the drawer had both been prised open very neatly—the prisoners had come to my house with another person a the Monday before, in a light cart—this plan of my house is perfectly correct; here is one passage leading to the garden, and the other is in ascent to the bedrooms—the men ran about a great deal—I served clark with a pot of beer—they ran in and out of the tap-room—they brought a rump steak with them to be cooked, and I superintended the cooking—I do not recollect that they went into the garden that day—they eat the rump steak at the tap.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Clark. Q.</hi> Do you recollect the numbers of the notes?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No—the silver was rolled up in pounds for the facility of giving change—the potman has worked for me five or six months—I had no character with him; but his father is well known in Richmond to be a hard-working man, and I took him on his father's credit—I have not the slightest suspicion of his honesty—there were two other chests of drawers in the same room; they were not touched—I believe you gave me a sixpence—you had only a pot of half
<lb/>and-half between the three—I saw Thorpe near the stairs, but that was after the robbery was over—I had not seen him in the passage the stairs—he has a brother a respectable builder at Feltham.</p>

<p>kitchen again; and as I went up stairs I saw the prisoners go to the door to Start—they started in a hurry; it was raining—I did not see them get into their cart—I asked the barmaid whether they had paid; she said "Yes," and when I looked out they were going nearly as fast the horse could go—I then went up stairs and saw my mistress's door ajar—I came down again and told the barmaid—I had been up stain before 1 o'clock and again between 1 and 2—the door was then closed—it was 4 o'clock when I found it open—my mistress's sister and the barmaid, and the ostler all went up—I afterwards went in and saw my mistress's cash-box broken open on the bed, and two or three shillings strewed about—that was not a minute after I saw the men go away.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Clark. Q.</hi> Did you see either of us go up or come down?

<hi rend="italic">Clark's Defence.</hi> On 10th December I was engaged to go to Slough, with my horse and cart, with some gentlemen; on our way home we stopped at the Coach and Horses, Brentford, which I always thought was Ealing; to stopped there about three hours and then went home. On Friday, 16th the two gentleman came to me again and asked me to go to Slough with them. I did so; stopped an hour while they did their business, and on our way home we stopped at the Waggon and Horses. I declined to pay 2

<p>to pay the duy; and while we were waiting there, I had conversation with the ostler respecting some corn; he led me into the back garden, which, it appears, is open morning and night. We left the house after stopping three hours. On 8th and 9th December, my father-in-law and I had a bit of a quarrel because he did not clean my cab, and I got locked up, and was then told that'I was wanted for stealing a gash-box at Brentford. I said, f I never did such a thing in my life." When the potman came to identify me, I said, "Have you nothing to say to me? he would not answer; presently in came the head ostlert, I said, "Are you the person who has come to recognise the party who stole the cash-box:" he said, "Yes;" and asked me to allow him to put his hat on my head, which I refused. When I went back to the cell the thoughts of my wife and child came into my head and filled my mind with horror, so that I hardly knew what I was doing, and when the policeman came to the cell, I might, in a moment of agitation, have expressed myself in the manner he says. There are several rooms on the landing, and only one was broken open; there were several chests of drawers in the room, and several drawers, but only one drawer was broken open, and that the right one. The prosecutrix cannot say that any one offered her money in chang to induce her to go up stairs for them to see which room she went to. I have two children in their coffins, and another not expected to live; my wife is waiting to know whether I shall be restored to liberty or not, and I can speak no more</p>

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note, and I placed it inside the letter, and then sealed the letter—I called Hartley to hold the taper for me whilst I sealed it—I sealed it with wax, and put R.O. my own initials on it, with my own seal—the prisoner stood by me while I did so—when I had sealed the letter I gave it back to Mr. Greggins—I told her to put it in at the red letters; that is the district box—before she left the shop I said to her, "You see that the 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note is put in safe;" her reply was, "Yes,"—after she had gone out I told the prisoner that there was a 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note in the letter—nothing else passed then with regard to it—the collection of letters at that office would be despatched at 9 o'clock—they would be taken from there to the West Central Office—I am not in the post-office—nobody is employed there from 7 till 9, when they make up the collection—if a person were to go into the place where the partition is he could have access to the letter-box; it was unlocked—there is a window to the street from the post-office—there are shutters put up at it—we commenced putting up the shutters on that evening at about twenty minutes to 9—they are put up on the outside, and fastened in the inside—Hartley and a boy named Sewell put them up—Hartley generally fastened them inside—after that, shortly before Christmas-day, an officer, whose name I don't know, called at Mr. Dawbarne's—a conversation passed between him and me relative to a 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. note—he wished for my name—I wrote it down on a piece of paper, and also the name of J. W. Hartley, at the officer's request also—he took away the piece of paper on which those two names were written—Grunson was in the post-office at that time—the officer went there first, and Grunson sent him over to me—after the officer was gone I told the prisoner that I had written his name down on a piece of paper, and also my own—I said that the officer had come about a 5

W. Hartley," on it, in the prisoner's writing—on 14th January Mr. Dawbarne had some conversation with me about the note—I told him that the prisoner had passed a note at Vauxhall—on Wednesday, a few days after that, the prisoner went with me and some other persons from that house to the post-office.</p>

<lb/>hall—it was a conversation on Sunday morning, at the breakfast table—Owen was not present at that time—the prisoner's annoyance appeared to be at Owen's taking upon himself to write his name, instead of calling him to do it himself—during the time he has been in my employment he has given me entire satisfaction as regards his behaviour—he has borne the character, while with me, of an honest, well-conducted young man—I con
