I am housemaid to Lady Talbot de Malahide—she lives at 3, Lowndes-square, Chelsea—on 30th November, Lady Talbot went out about five minutes before 7, in the carriage—the footman went with her—after she had gone out, the butler went out, and after that I went upstairs to Lady Talbot's bedroom; that was about half-past 7—her ladyship's bedroom is the front room on the third floor—I found the room all in confusion—the two wardrobe doors were wide open each way, the drawer was half out, and the cover of the jewel-case lay outside the drawer; the pincushion thrown down on the floor, and the drawer at the bottom of the looking-glass half open—Lady Talbot's watch, which had been on the dressing-table, was gone—the jewel-case was also gone—I had not been in the room since 4 o'clock in the afternoon—the room was then all right and straight—when I went up at half-past 7, it was to light her ladyship's fire—while I was in the room I heard a door go upstairs, and I went upstairs to my own room which is the front attic—I there found the jewel-close, and the two the two room trays that held the diamonds, lying at each end of it, and what is termed a
<hi rend="italic">jemmy</hi>, lying by the side of it—I then went into the next room, which is a spare room, that is a front room also; and there I found the window open, the floor all wet, and an upper square of glass broken in the window, near the lock of the window—it was a very wet night, and was raining very hard at the time—I missed my silver watch from my room, from off the fire-place—I had seen it safe at 4 o'clock, when I was up in the room—I saw that the jewel-case had been broken open, by the trays being out—I took the iron thing into my hand that they opened it with—I went down and called the lady's-maid, and she came up stairs and examined the room.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q</hi> How many persons were there in the house at the time you went up into Lady Talbot's room?

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. POLAND</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> The police took possession of the jewel-case and is the

I am lady's-maid to Lady Talbot—I was called by last witness on 30th November, about half-past 7—I went upstairs—I found the wardrobe open, and everything in confusion—I had dressed Lady Talbot for the theatre—the things were all right at that time—I left the bedroom about a quarter-past 6—the watch that I missed was on the dressing-table at that time—the jewels were in my charge—I kept the key of them—a diamond necklace was missed on this occasion, two tiaras, two diamond bracelets, two diamond brooches, and a small diamond ornament for the neck; altogether they are valued at about 2,000
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—there were other smaller things besides these jewels, but not in the case—all that were in the case, were taken; the others were about the room, but they were not taken—they were of inferior value—they were thrown about—all the valuable jewellery that could be got at was taken, all the diamonds—those strewed about the room had been turned out of the boxes, but not removed—I lost a brooch of my own, it was taken off a pincushion—the house is in the parish of Chelsea—to the best of my belief, this diamond (
<hi rend="italic">looking at a ring produced</hi>) belonged to her ladyship's necklace, from the size and purity of it—all I can say is, that it exactly resembles one of those in the centre of the necklace—I had been in the habit of cleaning these jewels for fifteeen years, brushing them almost daily—I think this was about the centre stone in the necklace, because it was the largest.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. SLEIGH</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How many stones were there in the Necklace?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I cannot say—this stone was shown to me set in that ring as it is now—I speak from the size, purity, cut, and brilliancy—they were all good diamonds, all brilliants, and all well cut.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Police-inspector, B</hi>). On the night of 30th November, I went to 3, Lowndes-square, and examined the premises—I went up into the unoccupied room and the attic, and found the window open—a pane of glass was broken near the fastening, and there was some glass on the floor—a person could get from the roof into that room very easily—it was a very foggy misty night, small rain—it was rather windy at times, gusty—being so dark that night, I could not make a very good examination; but at daybreak, I went on to the roof of the house—there is a balustrade in front—I saw finger-marks on the balustrade in front of the houses 4 and 5, Lowndes-square, on the dirt that had become damp on the balustrades—No. 7 is under repair—there were ladders against it, reaching up to the roof—it is a flat roof—the marks were such as a person might make in passing along the roofs, and keeping himself steady—I was shown this
<hi rend="italic">jimmy</hi> and the dressing-case—I compared the marks on it—it appears to have been broken open with that
<hi rend="italic">jimmy</hi>—some days after this, I think the 3rd December, I received a hat from Meakins, a constable on the beat—I made some inquiries with reference to that—I went to 40, Cambridge-street, Hackney-road, on, as</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186101280005"/>
<p>near as I can recollect, the 4th, 5th or 6th December, I can't say the exact day—I endeavoured to find the prisoner there, but did not succeed—I know that some things in Cambridge-street were afterwards moved to Clarence-place—that was as near as I can judge, about 17th December—I endeavoured to find the prisoner at Clarence-place, but was not successful in that—the things were afterwards removed from Clarence-place to 27, Hyde-place, Hoxton—that removal was on 20th December—I succeeded in finding the prisoner at that place, on 26th December—I had tried before that, between the 20th and 26th—on 26th, I saw him come out of 27, Hyde-place—his wife was with him, and a man and woman—Sergeant Potter was with me—he took the prisoner into custody, and another sergeant took his wife into custody—when Potter took the prisoner, he said to him, "
<hi rend="italic">Patsy</hi>, I take you into custody for a large jewel robbery at 3, Lowndes-square, Pimlico"—I did not hear what reply he made—I and the sergeants returned into the house No. 27, taking the prisoner with us—we made a careful search of the house—whilst searching, the prisoner said to one of the sergeants, "I know what you are looking for now, you are looking for tools, but I have done away with them years ago"—Potter was keeping him in custody—before this occasion, I saw a man come out of No. 27, once or twice in the dusk of the evening, but could not be certain whether it was the prisoner or not—we did not find any
<hi rend="italic">jimmy</hi> or anything of the kind at this house—a great portion of the furniture was quite new—I found a quantity of flannel, unmade, and linen also not made up—I have not got it here—at the station I asked the prisoner for his address, and he gave it 27, Hyde-place, Hoxton—that was the house we had watched—he said he was a lapidary—in the cab on the way to the station, he said, "If you gentlemen had me to rights, I should have given you a
<hi rend="italic">warming</hi> before you had taken me"—he meant, I suppose, if we had got the case clear against him, that I understood to be his meaning—that was after we had searched the house, and found none of the property—the prisoner's wife was taken before the magistrate, and discharged—this is the hat that was found (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—I found two or three letters in the house No. 27—I have one addressed to Mr. Arnold, 27, Hyde-place—I have also got a rent-book of the house 40, Great Cambridge-street, Hackney-road.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> The prisoner was very willing that you should search the house, was he not?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He went back very willingly—I did not bear him express any willingness—I do not know that it was at his suggestion that the house was searched—I could not tell how long the furniture had been at the house; there were some dated receipts for furniture—they were given to the prisoner's solicitor—I read the receipts—I know very well the furniture we found in this house never left 40, Cambridge-street—it was not the furniture we had seen removed from Cambridge-street—I did not go into the house after I had seen the last removal, but we left some one watching there for some time afterwards—I cannot say whether nothing was left in the house after I saw the things leave—the new furniture was not part of what I saw removed.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When you ceased watching, did you leave persons watching?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I stopped watching myself for a considerable time after the things were removed to Clarence-place—I don't think I left anybody there after that.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Police-sergeant, D</hi> 2). I received a communication from Sergeant Huddy, and I was shown a hat at the College-road police-station—I was not aware at the time that there had been any inquiries at the hatter's</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186101280006"/>
<p>—I saw that hat worn by the prisoner at Lewes, on 2d July last—I expressed that opinion before I knew what was inside the hat, and said whose hat it was—I was present afterwards at the hatter's when inquiries were made about it—I had the hat shown to me at the cattle-show about the 11th; the cattle-show finished on Friday, and I went on the Saturday—I think I saw the hat on the Saturday, and on the Monday or Tuesday following I went to the hatter's—I was not there at the time he turned out the lining—I have seen the prisoner on many occasions—I had seen him wear the hat previous to that, previous to the date I have mentioned; I have seen him at Clerkenwell, where he lived—it was through the hat that I knew where he was at Lewes—the prisoner was traced to Hyde-place, from Great Cambridge-street—I apprehended him there on 26th, on Boxing-day, about twenty minutes before 2, his brother, his wife, and a woman with a baby were with him—I saw them come out of No. 27—I said to the prisoner, "
<hi rend="italic">Patsy</hi> (that is the name by which I knew him), I want you, you must consider yourself in my custody for a jewel robbery at Lady Talbot's, at Brompton"—he said, "Very well, Mr. Potter, don't expose me here"—he then turned round and saw the four others, who were there in custody of other officers, and said, "Potter, you don't mean to take him into custody? he is innocent"—that was his brother-in-law, who was present—I said, "I shall leave that to the inspector"—he said, "I suppose you mean to search my place," or lodging, or something of that kind—I said, "Yes," and he asked to be present during the search—I took him back into the house and kept him in custody while Mr. Rolls and two other officers made a search—while they were searching a cupboard at the bottom of the stairs, the prisoner said, "I suppose you are looking for tools, but I have done with them years ago," and he said something about jewellery, but I could hardly catch the words—he said, "You knew, Potter, I should not have anything here"—on searching him I found three 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. Bank of England notes, and five sovereigns, a gold watch, chain, and diamond ring, and other things, these are the notes (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>).</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Had you been with Rolls two or three days previously, at that house or outside that house?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I had not seen the prisoner going in and out—sometimes Rolls was there, sometimes I was—we were scarcely ever there both together, but we happened to be there together on this occasion when he came out—if I had seen him before I should have taken him—I have said before that the prisoner said, "You know, Potter, I should not have anything here"—I do not know that I gave it in evidence before—it is the truth—he repeated it more than once—I believe there was a reward of 300
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. offered in this matter, for the recovery of the property—I never had this hat in my hands in my life before.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What is the reward for?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> For the recovery of the property—it is not recovered—I have several reasons for knowing the hat.</p>

I am foreman to Mr. Doyle, a plumber—I superintended the alterations at 7, Lowndes-square—there were two ladders there, reaching to the roof, on the night of 30th November—three days after that, on 3rd December, I was in the back attic and my son drew my attention to a hat in the gutter—I told him to get out, he did so and picked it up and gave it to me—I gave it to the policeman on duty, Meak
<lb/>ins—I had been into that room several times between 30th November and 3rd December, but had not noticed it—the window is high, and unless I went</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186101280007"/>
<p>close to the window I could not see it—it had a black hatband on it—if a person had gone up the ladder and had got into the front gutter where the balustrade is, he could not get over the roof so as to fetch a hat, supposing it bad blown off; it is 9 ft. 6in. from the roof to the gutter, and nearly perpendicular—a person could not get along the roof from the front part—the hat was not wet, only just damp—we had a board on the ladders every night, but an expert person could get up even with a board there—I believe this to be the hat.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you quite sure about its being in the month of August?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not quite positive; I have endeavoured to discover the exact time, and my belief is that it was the beginning of August; I am certain that it was within ten days of August either way—I saw a third hat but gave no opinion of it—the one with the crape on is the one repaired by me—the lining had not the appearance of having been taken out when I examined it—it is customary to remove the paper before a hat is Bent home, but this was the neglect of my shopman, he left it by mistake.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No—I saw him next at the police-station—the inspector called at the house and told me that they had the man who committed the robbery, and next morning I saw him in one of the rooms at the station—I was not accompanied there by any one but her ladyship's two maids, but was introduced by one of the officers to a room with a hundred people in it of all classes and all dresses—I may have had a communication with one of the officers respecting the robbery—I was taken-to the room and asked to look round and see if I could identify anybody—I saw the prisoner at the far end of the room with a female by his side, who was taken in custody and afterwards discharged—I saw him at a glance and knew him in a moment—there was an opening made, up to the fire which was in the centre of the room, and I could see him sitting there without going up to him, and had no occasion to look further—I had not had the slightest description from the officers of the person who was in custody—the person I saw and identified was not dressed in the same way as the person who brought the letter—I will not say what he had on in the room, but I believe he had a cap on—I do not think there was any other person there among the mechanics and others, dressed like a private in
<lb/>dividual—I do not think this is the dress in which he was on that occasion—I recognised him by his features, and not by his dress at all—I cannot tell you whether he had that coat on, but I can give you a little further infor
<lb/>mation; he had an altercation with one of the police-officers in the polio-court, and I identified his voice.</p>

I live at 2, Red-lion-street, Wapping, and am apprentice to my father, a lighterman—we work for Willock and Son—on the morning of 19th January, I was on the river in a barge laden with lead, at Fresh Wharf, about two hundred yards from the Tower—about 7 o'clock I heard a noise with the last pig that was lifted on the gunwale—I was in the cabin—I came on deck and saw a boat shoving away—the prisoner was in the boat—there were four pigs of lead in the boat—there was one pig on deck, near the gunwale, on my barge—when I first saw the boat in which the prisoner was, it was about four yards off alongside—I hallooed out for the police directly—I found no police came so I stood on the gunwale of the barge for about two minutes while he was rowing off—I saw him throw the first pig overboard against the stern of the
<hi rend="italic">Crocodile</hi> steam-boat—that was while I was standing on the gunwale of the barge—after that I ran through the wharf and took a sculler from Billingsgate, near the Custom House, and rowed after him—he rowed towards over the water, and then he turned back again when he saw me coming, and rowed towards Brewer's Quay, and when we got to him there was none of the lead in the boat—I had lost sight of him from one end of the steam-boat to the other—that was the only time I lost sight of him, when I went round to get the sculler—he was rowing past the steam
<lb/>boat then—when I overtook him at Brewer's Quay he was going on board a coal barge there to get a sweep of coals, and I told him I was going to give</p>

<p>him in charge for stealing the lead—he said, "I had made a mistake"—he is the man—I saw him alongside of my employers' barge—afterwards, at the police-station, I was shown by the inspector of the Thames police two pigs of lead that were picked up—it was the same lead that had been in my masters' barge.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. RIBTON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What was it he said when you told him you charged him with stealing some lead?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> He said I was mistaken—I slept on the barge that night; I was put in charge to watch her—it was laden with a great quantity of lead, nothing else—the weight of a pig is about 1 cwt. some of them run 114lbs.—there was not a soul on board the barge but myself, I was there all night alone; I was in the cabin—there was no bed there; I was not asleep—I was just lying down—I was disturbed by the noise and came up and saw the prisoner in a boat about three or four yards from the barge; he was not so far as six yards—it was not dark, it was just break of day, 7 o'clock—it was a clear morning, quite bright—it was last Saturday week, in the middle of the frost—I cannot tell that the boat was the man's own—it was the first time I ever saw him—I know there are men who go about to sweep barges for which they get the sweepings—I saw him throw one of the pigs into the water—I did not shout to him—I only hallooed out for police—the other pigs were then in the bottom of his boat—the pig went down with a great plash, in the water—it made a great noise—I heard and saw it—I followed the prisoner and never lost sight of him, except from one end of the steamer to the other—I kept turning round as I was rowing—he did not turn to meet me when he saw I was following him—he turned to row into Brewer's Quay, and we went there to him—the sculler that I took was with me—when we got to the boat there were no pigs of lead in it—there were four hundred and forty-three pigs in the barge that night—they were put on board on Friday—I counted them and loaded them; nobody assisted me—I loaded them myself; I took them from a schooner—I do not know whose schooner it was—she has gone away and the people with her.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. LILLEY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was there light enough to see who was in the boat?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; and it was light enough to see that there were pigs of lead in the boat—I can lift a pig of lead—I could have lifted one off the barge into the boat alongside—I gave the prisoner into the custody of the Thames police-inspector.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say you put four hundred and forty-three on board, were there any missing afterwards?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; four—I went back and counted them after I had given the prisoner in charge, one of my men was left in charge—nobody was with me counting them—the lead I pointed out to Inspector For far was the lead that had come off my barge.</p>

On 1st September, about a quarter to 6 in the evening, I was on duty in the Harrow-road, and was called into the Running Horse public-house—I found the prisoner there drunk and riotous—I ordered him to go quietly out of the house—he said he should not go out—he continued very violent—I then called New, a police constable who was outside—he came in—police constable Keenan and another constable came in in the meantime—Wore New came in, Keenan and I had hold of the prisoner—I had hold of his left hand with my right—he had thrown himself on the ground, and was kicking very violently—I heard New say, "He has kicked me in the private parts"—he appeared very ill, very pale—he had not got hold of the prisoner—he was behind me—Keenan was on my left, on the other side of the prisoner, assisting in getting him out—we succeeded in getting him out into the street with the assistance of Waterman—he resisted very much—we had to carry him the greatest part of the way to the station—he kicked very violently in the house, and also outside—on the road to the station he said</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186101280016"/>
<p>he would go quietly—we let him go, and he made a kick at me, and his foot came in contact with the lamp-post—we got him to the station.</p>

<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. ORRIDGE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When you took hold of the Prisoner's arm was New standing behind him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, behind me; towards the prisoner's feet; opposite him; facing him—the prisoner threw himself down—Keenan fell on him, no one else—New was standing when he called out that he was kicked—I did not see the kick; it was impossible for me to see it—New was behind me—the prisoner's feet were behind me—I could only see that he was kicking—I could not see whether New had taken hold of him at all—the prisoner was drunk—I do not know why his head is bound up—he was not like that then—he received no injuries that I know of—he made no complaint then, nor at the station—I did not hear him say a word to New—there were about four persons present at the com
<lb/>mencement; perhaps there might have been one hundred and fifty at the last—the struggle lasted perhaps five minutes—at first there were four persons in front of the bar; I cannot say as to afterwards, the people kept crowding in—I did not see anything of a general fight—no one tried to get the prisoner from me—I saw no attempt at getting him away—I did not see any act of violence on the part of any one else—the prisoner was the only person struggling.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLERK</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was it after New was kicked, that a great many came in?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—Keenan fell on his side at the same time that he commenced kicking—it was the potman that brought me to the house.</p>

I was a police-constable—I am 28 years old—on 1st September I was called by Wiltshire to the Running Horse public-house, Harrow-road, about half past 6 in the evening—Wiltshire was in the house before I went in—when I went in I saw the prisoner there—he had no coat on, his shirt sleeves were turned up—he was standing by the bar—Wiltshire asked him to go out, and he would not go—Wiltshire took him by the hand, and he immediately threw himself on his back—while he was lying on his back Wiltshire was at his head, and the other constable was at his head, with his back towards me—the prisoner violently kicked me in the testicles, and I fell back against the form—I had not taken hold of him before he kicked me—he did not say anything or call out anything before he kicked me—he could see me very well where I was standing at the time he kicked me—his head was laid against the bar, and his heels against a little door that lead into the parlour or tap room—I was towards his feet—when he kicked me his feet were close to my heels, and as he lay on his back he threw his feet up—he could see me at the time he kicked me—I have done no duty from that day to this—I have been under the care of the surgeon—I was in the hospital six weeks—other constables came and took the prisoner into custody, and I was assisted home.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Were Keenan and Wiltshire nearer the prisoner's head than you were?

<p>said it was better for him to go out, than to get himself into trouble—he said he would see me b----d first—I caught hold of him; he and I fell on the floor—that was after New came—it was in my attempt to put the prisoner out—he got up and fell again in front of the bar, and I fell on the top of him—it was when he fell the second time that Wiltshire got hold of his left hand—the prisoner threw himself on his back—his head was between me and Wiltshire—I fell en him—I got up and kept hold of his right hand—he was kicking about very violently then—New was in the rear of him, and the prisoner, kicking, kicked me in the left knee—I did not see him do anything to New—after we bad got outside the door, I heard New say he was kicked—we had the prisoner in custody at that time—the prisoner did not say anything to that.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> How many were there of you engaged in taking him?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> There were New, Wiltshire, myself, and two others; five of us—none were down on him except me—by the prisoner falling he pulled me down, and I was compelled to fall on him—he was on his back and kicking, when I fell on him—I had not hold of his throat—I had hold of his right arm and I fell down on him—I lay down on his breast for half a moment and then got up again—it was not while I was lying on his breast, that he kicked New—the other two policemen were keeping the mob back more than anything else—there was great confusion—it is not a very large place—the prisoner was drunk, not very wild drunk.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. CLERK</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> At the time when you and Wiltshire had hold of him, was there any other constable in the house besides New?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> There was a constable named Mills—I was down—on the prisoner for a moment—I could not say whether I had got up again before he kicked New—I did not witness the assault—I did not hear New cry out at that time, that he was kicked; not till after we got the prisoner outside—the name of the other constable was Waterman.</p>

<lb/>sequently appeared that he had an injury to the spine.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he appear to have been a strong man before this injury was inflicted?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> There was nothing to indicate the contrary—I believe he was in perfect health when the injury was inflicted—his life was for some time in danger from this injury, and I cannot say at present that it is wholly out of danger—he is not likely ever to be able again to do duty as a policeman—the injury to the spine is likely to be more or less permanent—that was inflicted by the fall against the bench or form—there is no doubt that the whole injury is fairly accounted for by the statement made of what occurred at the moment—a mil backwards against a form or bench would have produced that.</p>

<p>the three prisoners together—I saw Burns go into the shop while the other two remained outside—she rejoined them and all moved together in com

<hi rend="italic">White. Q.</hi> How did you secure me when you first took me?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I caught hold of you by your hand and your collar; one hand to your hand, and one to your collar, and when I found you had thrown this down, one man held your hand, and I put handcuffs on you.</p>

We went into a public-house, and she gave me a six-pence; I took it and called for something to drink; perhaps that might be the sixpence. I stood at the corner while they went up the turning; I waited till their return, but I never questioned them as to what they were going to do, and they never told me; then the policeman came up and took hold of my hands, and said he would take care I threw nothing away, and then he took me to the station. About a quarter of an hour or ten minutes afterwards Copping came in with the collar, and said, "Here, here is the col-lar," and the other one took it from him. They never said anything about the collar on the first statement, it was only at the second statement they mentioned it. If I had not known this woman, I should not have been in it.</p>

I was in the employ of Poole and Bryan, as packer, for twelve months—I was discharged on 13th August—for the twelve months previous to that date they had no other packer than myself—there might have been a few trunks packed at the busy time by somebody else, but they must all come under my superintendence—I never received orders to pack any goods to be sent to Mr. Cooke—I never saw Mr. Cooke before—I saw a number of trunks which were seized at Kingsthorpe, at the warehouse—if those goods had been selected by anybody, and sent out in July, I must have known it—I saw the twenty-six trunks and hamper at the warehouse—I can't say about the value of those goods, as they were packed—when we packed them in the original way, we considered a trunk was 20
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>.—the stock was very scant indeed—I was on the premises daily in July, and up to 13th August—I never saw Mr. Cooke at all—I did not hear of any sale to him—such a quantity of goods as were contained in those twenty-six trunks and the hamper could not have left the premises in July, without my knowledge—I used to pack fifty pair of Bluche in a trunk, and thirty-six of all other kinds of goods—I saw some of these trunks opened—I cannot say exactly how many I examined, because 1 was getting keys, and some of them were broken open—I examined a number of them—the goods were not packed in the regular way, in which I should have packed them—I used to put Wellingtons and short Wellingtons, and Bluchers all in different trunks, and they used to be lined with felting, and paper over the felting—these were packed without anything at all, and mixed, short boots, Blucher boots, and all in different kinds of ways—I examined the goods at the warehouse, on 30th—they were shown to me by Mr. Shepcutt—I had seen this letter-bag on the boy's back, on 9th or 10th August—I never saw but that one, it has "Poole and Bryan" on it—I used this peg-iron on 13th August, before breakfast in the morning, in the shoe-room, at Poole and Bryan's warehouse—there were five pairs of boots, I recognised among the goods, that came from Kingsthorpe, made by Skempton, of Hartlepool, they</p>

<p>had been brought in by him to Poole's warehouse, on 11th August—something occurred which enables me to remember that date—they were not made sufficient for our trade—I showed them to Poole, and Poole said they would not do, and Mr. Skempton must pay for them—they are the same boots I saw on 30th, in one of the trunks that was seized at Kingsthorpe.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> You saw these goods when the messenger seized them, I think, on 31st August?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> On 30th August—there was a packing-room at Mr. Poole's, where the goods were usually packed—I was in the packing-room, and all over the warehouse—there was also what was called a dry-room there—goods were sometimes packed there, two or three trunks, just as we were busy—the trunks that were generally used for packing, were kept in the shoe-room or in the coach-house—the key of the coach-house used to be hung up in the office, and we could go and-take it just when we liked—sometimes we went to a man named Jameson, to get the key, when he was in the office, but the key hung just inside the office door, and anybody who wanted trunks, could get the key and go to the stable.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you pay him any salary?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I paid him by commission—I did not pay his expenses—he might travel for me and twenty others—it was part of his duty to receive money for me, if parties paid him—I did not give him instructions to collect money, and I did not instruct him not to collect it, but it is considered usual—it is not the fact that he had any authority to receive money on my account—I certainly did not consider his receiving it contrary to his employment—it is a usual occurrence for a commission traveller to receive money, and I have said that he ought to have remitted it to me.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Were not these the instructions, that he was to furnish you with the names of the customers, and that you should receive the money yourselves?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Nothing was said about it at all—of course he must furnish me with the names, or we could not send the goods—if the persons in the country do not pay, we should send down an account for the goods which we had furnished—there was nothing said about the prisoner receiving money either way; it was merely a verbal agreement—only this one order was sent up by him to us—you are still to understand that if he received money it was not contrary to his orders, or contrary to his duty—that has not been my impression at all, quite the reverse—(
<hi rend="italic">The witness deposition, being read, stated</hi>, "He had no authority to receive money on my account; I consider his receiving it contrary to his employment and duty; if he had received the money, and had sent it up to us, we should have considered it under the ordinary course of business")—that is what I stated at the police-court—I should not consider his receiving it contrary to his employment—I said so, but I think you will find that that observation was qualified afterwards by saying that we considered it under the ordinary course of business—it is an understood thing with travellers, that the customers pay the money—I do not think anything was said about receiving or paying at all—I have no recollection of his writing me a letter from Bristol just after the receipt by me of Mr. Tonkin's order—I believe if we had a letter at our house of business we should be able to find it, but we cannot find any correspondence at all from the prisoner—Tonkin had not been a customer—his name does not appear in our books at all—a statement would be sent out to him about a month after-wards—he paid it, therefore we must have sent it—we received this order in October, or it might be the latter end of Septembers—it was executed in October—I cannot tell you exactly.</p>

<interp inst="t18610128-name-160" type="given" value="JANE"/>JANE COLLINS</persName> </hi>. I live at 2 1/2 Scott's-place, Islington, and am the daughter of the deceased, William John Brooks Collins—the prisoner and my father were acquainted, but she did not live at his house—she came there quite intoxicated on 11th December, between 8 and 9 o'clock, and as soon as my father got into the house, she began quarrelling, and they went away to the Crown public-house—they came back in about a quarter of an hour, and stood at the door, and she struck him just over his ear—it seemed like a violent blow—I saw her hands doubled, but did not see any weapon—my father fell over a chair, but did not fall on the ground, as the chair saved him—he sat down on the chair, and said, "If that had been my eye, it would have been a black eye"—he said, in the evening, that his head ached, and next day he complained very much of his head—Mr. Thane, a medical man, was culled in on the Monday—my father was in bed all day on the 22d, and continued in bed till his death—he was only able to attend to his business two or three hours in the day, between the time he received the blow and the time he went to bed—he was a baker—he attended to his business a little time after the doctor came.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> What time was it when your father and me first went out?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> lie never went out all day—if he had a bad foot and was unable to walk, that has nothing to do with this—after he came in he went out to lock you up, but you were gone—he did leave his house to go after you, after he had the blow—you came to see him once before the surgeon came, and you may have seen him twice; not once or twice a day.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Where was your father?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> In the shop—she could not have met him in the town, because he did not go out, and I would not let her in; but she used to come and walk right through, whether I was there or not—I did not give her in custody when she came to see him, because I thought nothing of it.</p>

I live at 42, Ward's-place, Lower-road, Islington, and am a general dealer—on this evening in December I saw the deceased with the prisoner in a public-house—that is within five doors of Mr. Collins'—they were drinking together, and I heard a Quarrelling between them—the land-lord put the prisoner out—I did not hear her say anything then, but about ten minutes or a Quarter of an hour afterwards, she said she would bury a penny in his head—I saw her waiting about the place after she had been put out; and when Collins came out, she went up to him and knocked his hat off—I did not see her follow him to the shop, where he lived—there was a crowd—they went in the direction where he resided.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> Did you see me lying down on the ground?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I saw you knocked down by the landlord of the public-house, in pushing you out—that was about 8 o'clock—a gentleman and lady picked you up—I did not hear</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186101280045"/>
<p>what you said—I did not see you fall and catch your head against my barrow—I only saw you fall once—I did not say that if I bad a horsewhip I would horsewhip the old brute, for he ought to be ashamed of himself—it was only words between you and the landlord; not blows.</p>

Islington, next door but one to where the deceased lived—on 11th December, I heard a quarrel in the public-house, and saw the prisoner pushed out, at a little after 8 o'clock—I saw the prisoner walk up to Collins, knock his hat off, and he went into the middle of the road, and picked it up—he walked past my house, and just as he was going to turn in, I saw her strike him a blow just behind his right ear—he went forward from the effect of it, and seemed as if he was knocked down—that was all I saw—it was a violent blow—I should not have liked to have had it.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner</hi>. I deny striking him at all—I shoved him away.</p>

I am a floorcloth printer, of 5, Upper Queen-street, Islington—I was at this public-house on 11th December, between 8 and 9 o'clock, and saw the prisoner and Collins having some words together—Collins asked his brother to turn the prisoner out, and she was pushed out—she was intoxicated, but Collins was not, though he had had a glass or so—they both appeared to have the effects of liquor on them—it was Collins who sent for the landlord.</p>

I never struck him!—I said, "Well, he appears to be in a dying state, from what I can see I—she said, "He will never die; he has been dying this four years: but if he was here now, I would give him something, if I got hung for it."</p>
