I am a fishmonger, of 19, Peach-street, St. George's-in-the-East—on 19th December, about 11 at night, or it might be later, I was in Peach-street, where a club of our's is held—I had been drinking—the two female prisoners came up to me, and pulled me down, and the two male prisoners came in front of me—I had received 17
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 2
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. from the society—I had a tussle, and held one of the females by her shawl, which she left in my hand, and slipped away—two or three policemen came up while I was on the ground, and took a man and woman in custody.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Were you struck a blow?

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You said that you did know, do you know who the women were?

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. TAYLOR</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Will you swear that there were not three women?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I am certain there were only two—I cannot tell you how much money I had, because it was my day's takings—I lost exactly the money I had received at the club—I received it about 10 o'clock, and this was about half-past 11.</p>

<hi rend="italic">K</hi> came up and pursued Power—I had seen Francis about a quarter of an hour before that, and when I went up to the prosecutor, both these women were three or four feet from him—several other women were standing there, but none of them were so close as the two female prisoners.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. RIBTON</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do you know when Power was taken?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Almost directly after I took the other—I have had no dispute with Power: I believe he summoned some of my comrades seven or eight months ago—I did not threaten that I would do for him—I know McKay—I did not hear him say so—there were six or seven women there, but the male prisoners were the only men—five or six people stopped to see what was the matter, as they passed—it was not dark, it was just under a gas lamp—the prosecutor was lying on his back when I went up, but whether he tumbled or not, I cannot tell—they did not see me till I took Lovell, whose back was to me, and Power was stooping down, so that he could not see me—Lovell was nearest to me; he was between me and Power.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>

<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>)—I saw her about 4 o'clock, with the other prisoners, in High-street, Shadwell—Power and Connell live in one house, the other two prisoners sleep anywhere.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you the man whom Power sum

I was formerly an inspector of police—I am employed by the Mint—on 3rd January I went, in company with other officers, to 17, St. Ann-street, Westminster—we found the street-door open, and proceeded upstairs to the second-floor front room, the door of which we found securely fastened—there were two doors, one inside the other—I don't know whether they were both locked; the inner door was bolted—I have the inner door (
<hi rend="italic">it was here produced</hi>); the bolt was sprung—the outside door we shattered to pieces—this is the oak post of the inner door—we broke open both the doors, and got into the room—we found the prisoners there in bed together—I had some conversation with the male prisoner of rather a coarse nature—I said to him, "It is quite certain you intended to resist, by all the means in your power, to prevent anybody making an entry in here"—he said he did not know what I meant—I said, "By placing this additional extraordinary strong</p>

<p>door inside"—he said, "The b—doors about here have got no strength in them"—I told him I had received instructions from the Solicitor to the Mint to endeavour to put a stop to his extensive coining and dealing in counterfeit coin, and that we came there with a Magistrate's search-warrant to search his place—he said, "You will find nothing here, unless you have brought it with you"—we then proceeded to make a search—I found in the cupboard this galvanic battery, charged with solution in both jars, a quantity of while metal which had been melted, files with white metal in their teeth, a pipkin with a small portion of white metal in it, a pad, a piece of marble with plaster of Paris upon it, as it now appears, a gallipot with some plaster of Paris in it, some brushes, some plaster of Paris in powder, and several bottles containing acid—there were also two tin bands with plaster of Paris adhering to them, a tin box containing white sand, and a canister containing several pieces of antimony—some of these things were in the cupboard, and some in a little drawer close by the cupboard; all in the room—I have a bag here containing plaster of Paris; that was found in the bottom of the cupboard—these are all articles used by coiners for the purpose of making counterfeit coin.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PATER</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> And for other purposes as well?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They might be; but there are several things here which I think are not used for any other purpose—I am not now in the police force; I left it in 1857, since which time I have been attached to a branch of the Home-office—I found the street-door of this house open—I can't say whether it is generally kept open; I have frequently seen it open—I believe the house is let out to several persons—I think we might have been about a minute and a half or two minutes breaking open the door of the room which the prisoners oc
<lb/>cupied; I did not knock before breaking it open—I did not knock at any other door before we broke this door open, but one of my companions did; that was the door adjoining, on that same floor—I do not know that the male prisoner uses the galvanic battery for the purpose of electro-plating ear-rings and studs—the other officers went into the room with me—I was in the room perhaps an hour and a half; the other officers were there the greater part of that time; some of them were in and out—I can't say what may have passed between them and the prisoners in the confusion—I attended to my own part of the business.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. COOKE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Who broke the door open?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> My son, with the assis

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Were you one of the officers who knocked at the other door?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; I heard the knocking—I should say that was three or four minutes before the door was broken open—I heard no answer from the inside—I don't know that the street door is continually kept open; I had never been to the house before.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. COOKE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did you five officers go up the stairs one after the other?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, close together; I was behind, I believe—those in front went at once with the sledge-hammer to the door that was broken open—we only</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186302020007"/>
<p>knocked at one room door; there were two doors to that one room—we were three or four minutes from first knocking until the door came open—we did not knock at any separate door; the only knocking was the breaking open—we went upstairs as fast as we could, and broke the door open imme
<lb/>diately—I believe there was some knocking at the door of the back room about the same time.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Do you know whether the prisoners are married?

<hi rend="smallCaps">THE COURT</hi>
<hi rend="italic">was of opinion there was no case against her, the possession being that of the husband.</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PATER</hi>
<hi rend="italic">submitted that no legal offence was made out under the 24th sec. of 24 & 25 Vic. c. 99, upon which the indictment was framed; that a galvanic battery did not come within the mean
<lb/>ing of the word "machine" used in that section; a machine implying an instrument with a combination of mechanical powers; whereas, the battery was of itself useless.</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. COMMON SERGEANT</hi>
<hi rend="italic">entertained no doubt that the instru
<lb/>ment in the present case came within the term "machine;" it was a regular galvanic battery, completely and scientifically constituted; it was not necessary that it should possess a combination of mechanical powers; a machine was an apparatus consisting of parts more or less complicated, adjusted the one to the other, with a view to the production of a certain result, the individual parts of which would not be of any use; but those parts being adjusted, constituted a machine for a particular object. A similar point arose in the case of Reg. v. Gover, last Session</hi> (see page 437),
<hi rend="italic">where, having occasion to consider the words of this section, after consulting</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. JUSTICE KEATING</hi>,
<hi rend="italic">he was of opinion that here was a case to go to the Jury, believing that the words used in this section, "any other machine," had been added for the express purpose of including machines other than those before mentioned.</hi> </p>

<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. 13
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 5
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. from Messrs. Hills and Barnard, of Chelsea, for goods previously supplied through our traveller—on his return he was asked whether they had paid it—he said, no, they were out; they would pay the next time he was round—I asked for it once or twice afterwards, and he said they would send it down—on 24th December, the prisoner absented himself from the warehouse—this receipt is the prisoner's writing; it purports to be his receipt for 1

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 5
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. from Messrs. Hills and Barnard, on my account—he never accounted to me for that sum—I have a customer named Ball, of Whitechapel, who purchased goods of my traveler to the amount of a guinea—I did not authorize the prisoner to receive that—it would not be due until 1st February—the prisoner has never accounted to me for it.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi> by
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. METCALFE</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was it the prisoner's duty to account to you?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Certainly—he had a list of persons to call upon on 10th December; he brings that list back with him, and then it is generally destroyed—I enter from that list into my cash-book the money received—I do not enter those that are not received—the cash-book is not here—I can send for it, and also for the book from which the list was made out—he had to collect on the 10th of each month from certain persons—I can't tell from how many he would have to collect on 10th December; it might be from twenty to thirty—I took a policy of insurance from the prisoner—that was about a week or ten days before I had the slightest suspicion of his embes
<lb/>zling money—it was about ten days before he left—I did not take any money from him—I did not put this sum of 1
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. 13
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>., 5
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>. to his account—I put a sum to his debit, the amount of 1
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. for some umbrellas, which I re
<lb/>deemed from a shop in Worship-street—I went to his house on 3d January—I did not tell him that I had found out that this sum had not been paid—I could not have done so, because it was not found out until after he was in custody—I told him there were irregularities in his accounts, but I had no idea of embezzlement then; I merely wanted him to come to the ware-house, and tell me what he had done—I requested him to repay me what he had overdrawn in his account—I have that account at home—I did not give him from Monday to Thursday to get the money for me—I told him if he came the following morning and paid me the 4
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 5
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. that he had overdrawn, he could leave—a traveler may sometimes overdraw—I have several travelers who have done the same—I don't think I called on the prisoner between the Monday and the Thursday—I saw his wife on the Thursday morning; that was previous to giving him in custody—I did not ask if the money was ready for me—I had the detective then outside—I still have the policy—it is for 100
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. in the Kent Mutual, which is now amalgamated with the Albert and Medical—four years premiums are paid up.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PATER</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When you spoke to the prisoner about money, was it respecting the account he had overdrawn?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Entirely—I had no idea at that time that he had embezzled these sums—he had left some umbrellas at</p>

<p>the Bald-faced Stag, near Shoreditch, for a pound, and I redeemed them in his presence—I told him at that time that I could not take him again, but he said if I did not he should commit suicide, and I thought I would give him another chance—I took the policy from him knowing it was of no value, but as he seemed to attach a value to it, I took it to keep it as a sort of rod over him.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I don't know—he served behind the counter—lately he has been carrying on business as a hair-net and cap-front manufac

I have heard Funnell's statement up to the time the prisoners were brought to the station—I believe it is correct—when they were brought to the station, I asked them whether they could give me any information about the person from whom they bought the silk—Tunn said, "A few weeks back we met a man, dressed as a porter, in Cannon-street; he asked us if we were buyers of hair nets, as he could get some cheap; we told him we were, provided they were cheap; we gave him our address in Bread-street-hill, and the next morning he called and brought us a piece of black silk; I asked him if he had got any nets; he said not then, bat we should have some; we bought that piece of silk; two or three mornings afterwards the same man called, and brought two pieces of silk; I still kept asking him about the nets, and he said we should have some; altogether we bought six or seven pieces of silk of him, which we afterwards give to Hutley, and he disposed of them; we were to give him a shilling a yard all round"—when the charge was read over to them, the name of Messrs. Leaf was mentioned in it, and they both said, "We did not know it came from Mr. Leaf"—I afterwards went to No. 2, Bread-street-hill, which might be about 300 yards from Leaf's warehouse—there was no appearance of business going on there; no fittings or furniture—the place was in a filthy, dirty state—no boxes with hair nets in them, or anything of that kind.</p>

<p>
