<lb/>ground room at the time—I immediately went into the shop—I saw the reflection of the gas from the street—I then distinctly saw the shop-door open; the glass-cases were open, and the window in great disorder—I missed a quantity of watches and other things—no property has been found since—they were quite safe at the time I fastened up the shop—I did not see any persons that caused me any suspicion.</p>

I am now in the House of Correction, under sentence—I know the prisoners—I know the shop of Mr. Jacobson, 312, Oxford-street—I was there on the night of 24th February, when this burglary was committed—I did not steal the things—I was one of the persona that went inside with Charles Davis—Davis, Vesey, and
<hi rend="italic">Dan</hi> McCarthy were with me—I saw both Davis and Vesey in the place—I afterwards saw Vesey come out, and
<hi rend="italic">Dan</hi> McCarthy went in—it was about half-past 11 or a quarter to 12—I did not see anything in Vesey's hand when he came out—next day I saw Vesey; he came to me in Drury-lane—he told me to come on—he took me to a public-house in Long-acre, where there was
<hi rend="italic">Dan</hi> McCarthy and Charley Davis—McCarthy gave me 3

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They told me to say nothing about it—I went in with Davis for the purpose of assisting him in the robbery; he told me to go in with him—I was taken up for something else—I am in the House of Correction for being with two Other men pushing a truck—it was for stealing cloth; they did—I had six months for it—I first spoke about this about five weeks ago—I told Sergeant Cole about it—it was not for the sake of escaping punishment—my father told me to tell the truth; my parents are very respectable.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Vesey. Q.</hi> Had you any thought of a robbery being committed?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I did not give information because you were so much like the man that shuts up there—I followed you, and I noticed you; your coat was white behind—I went home about my business when you came out—I gave infor

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How do you get your living?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I do needle-work—I had been to my sister's in Tottenham Court-road—I go there three times a week—my attention was attracted to Vesey by a female speaking to him, and he made her a nasty answer, and I kept looking at him—he was walking about with a stick watching the door; promenading backwards and forwards, that made me notice him.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> On the Thursday morning, 6th April, I was about three yards from you, on the same side, there was no one else passing at the time—I could not swear to the third man—you came out from the door at the corner of the street, looked round to see if any one was coming and then went back and pushed the door back and let the others out—it was a door leading to the side of the church, into the church, it belongs to the church—I thought you were workmen because they have had a lot of repairs there lately, it did strike me as rather singular—but I thought you were painters or carpenters—there was not 10

<hi rend="italic">Burnett's Defence.</hi> The witness must be mistaken, there are hundreds of people about early in the morning; if he had seen us leaving the church he would have followed us and given us in charge. The reason I am unable to call a witness is, that my sister was nurse to an invalid lady, and the very morning this happened she was sent away into the country with this lady, and I don't know where she has gone to. I don't know why he should not be able to swear to the other one if ha saw us all leave the place together.</p>

<lb/>signment was 300 packages of tea—I delivered them myself—I checked every one of them—150 were delivered into his van and 150 into the other van—Hoffman helped to load the van—he was on the box part of the time, not the whole of the time—he had a man assisting him—the other man took in some of the tea—I have not seen that man since—the chests were all ad

<lb/>lowed Hoffman in about five minutes—I saw the van drawn up at a public-house, Hoffman was at the horses' heads—I saw a man with a chest of tea on his back in the act of bringing it round the side of the van and he put it in an empty cart which Gauron was in—I did not see it come from the van—I did not see the man until he made his appearance round the van, the van hid him from my view—he was coming off the pavement round the van and then put it in the cart—the cart was drawn up I should think about a yard from the van, at the tail of it—I directly went over and examined it I recognised it as one of the 150 which I had put in Hoffman's van—I asked Gauron how he came by it and he said a man put it into the cart and wished him to take it to a certain place—I asked him what place and he said, "Up there," pointing up a turning opposite Sparrow-corner—he did not know where it was to go to, but the man was coming to let him know—he like-wise said that the man had told him to cover it over with a sack which he had in the cart, but he would not do that because he thought there might he something wrong—he had time to cover it over before I went up—I did not go up while the man was speaking to him—the man put it in the van without saying a word—I did not make myself known to Hoffman—I told Gauron he had better bring it with me which he did very willingly—I went with him to Messrs.

<p>chests had got off into a cart—he said he did not know he had got his right number, he knew that—I told him "I know you have got the right number but you have got one that you ought not to have," and on examining them I found one—that had not the same marks on it as the rest, quite dif
<lb/>ferent—the card had been torn off and was found next morning in the dock where the van had stood—the nails were left in the piece of card at each of the four corners—I left it with Mr. Candler—the two prisoners were given in charge—that chest that I spoke of came from another warehouse, not from mine—it ought to have been delivered to Pickford and Co—to the best of my belief the man who was assisting him in the dock was the man who was carrying the chest of tea—that man we have not been able to find.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say Hoffman drove this van into the London Docks?

<lb/>man was there and part of the time he was away—I did not see him all the time—I checked the goods off as they came down, by warrants, the number and weights are called out to me and I see if it agrees with the warrants—I have not got the warrants here—they were half chests, the public generally call them chests—it was a half packet that we found on Pickford's van, exactly the same with the card torn off—it had not the same mark on it as those loaded into Hoffman's van, nothing like it, quite a different mark, a different letter on the chest—Hoffman was at the horses' heads, he was not on the box when I first saw him, he afterwards got up on the box and drove away—I did not see the man who put the packet into Gauron's cart, till he made his appearance at the tail of the cart—I saw him at the docks—there is no witness from the Woolpack here—Hoffman told his master that he went in there to get a pint of beer.</p>

<lb/>tending to the van that Hoffman had charge of, and saw that man lift a half packet of tea off the load on Pickford's van and place it on the rail of Jones and Candler's van—it remained there as long as I was at my position—I communicated what I saw to my foreman, Mr. Neville, and took no further steps—I left at the time, and Mr. Neville remained—I did not see where Hoffman was at the time the tea was put on his van.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I have been married to him—we were married down in Yorkshire—my name is not Mary Ann West—I never married a man of the name of West—the prisoner came into the house before Mr. Silman—she came in by herself—he came in a few minutes afterwards; as soon as he heard the cry about the knife—he did not follow her in immediately—he did not push her in through the door; I swear that—I saw her push open the door, and rush up to the counter—I think she would have stabbed any one that night; she looked in an excited state—she struck at Mrs. Silman—I know a man of the name of Franks by sight—I believe he is a witness here—I have not been talking with the other witnesses in the case—I was behind the bar—it is not a very large one—it was not crowded that evening.</p>

<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186505080023"/>
<p>that she had got anything in it—Mrs. Metcalfe was standing by the side of me, and she sent the prisoner's hand on one side—the knife was within a few inches of my neck—Mrs. Metcalfe caught hold of her hand, and the prisoner drew the knife between her fingers, and nearly cut three of them off—I saw the blood on her hand—my husband came in to catch hold of the prisoner, and she turned round and cut his little finger—after striking at me she stabbed Mr. Franks in the shoulder—she went deliberately up to him, as he sat in the seat—when my husband caught hold of her, she fell on the ground, and he held her until a policeman came.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> How long have you been married to Mr. Silman?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> About three years—I am perfectly certain the prisoner rushed in—it must have been five minutes between the time of her coming in and in cutting Mrs. Metcalfe's hand and the entrance of my husband—my husband did not say anything at the time she threw the mud; he had not got time, because she only ran in and ran out again—he did not go outside the public-house and stay for nearly three-quarters of an hour waiting for her—he was not in the bar all the time—he was in the bar when she threw the dirt, and when she came back again he was outside looking at the lamps—he was not out more then ten minutes; prior to that ten minutes he had been in the bar—I could swear most positively that he did not push the prisoner into the house—he was not near her—she made use of a very bad expression when she used the knife—it was meant for Franks—she said she had not done for Franks yet, but she intended to do so, and intended to do for three of us that night—she rushed up very wildly at him—she went deliberately from me to him after cutting Mr. Silman's fingers—Franks was not drink

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> When you and the prisoner lived together, were you very happy?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> We were for a long time—she had seen me with Hewitt—Mr. Silman pushed her in, and as soon as she got inside the doors were bolted—I recollect hearing some one say that there was a knife somewhere—after she threw the dirt Mr. Silman went out of the house and remained out upwards of three-quarters of an hour; if he swears he only staid out two minutes that is false, his hat was sent out to him by Mrs. Silman after he had been out ten minutes or quarter of an hour—I did not see him come into the house again before the prisoner came in—I did not see the prisoner stab at Mrs. Silman; I did not see her cut Mary Metcalfe—when she struck at me she was in Mr. Silman's arms, he did not let her go at all—when I passed out he had hold of both her hands.</p>

On the morning of 11th April I was on duty in Stoke Newington—between a quarter and half-past 12, I saw the prisoner and another man in a narrow lane at the back of St. Matthias Church—I hid and watched them, but had not an opportunity of seeing them—I came out again and saw them come down off a wall at the back of the church, and hide under the hedge—about five minutes afterwards they came down very silently, watching and listening, trying to find where I was hiding—I then walked out and met them, and asked them what they were doing at the back of the church—the other man had a pair of these carpet
<hi rend="italic">mufflers</hi> in his hand—I said, "What are these," and he said, "That is what they are," giving me a push, "go about your business"—I laid hold of him, he had some heavy lumber about him, up his waist-coat—I then asked him where they lived, and he said, "At the back of Shoreditch Church"—I said, "You have no business at the back of this church then, I must take you to the station"—they said, "Come on then," and I made a grab at them—I was in the act of taking hold of them when I received a frightful blow on the top of the head from the prisoner—I looked round, it was a very bright night, and then saw that he had this
<hi rend="italic">jemmy</hi> (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) in his hand—he struck at me again; I received altogether about three blows on the head, the last one knocked me down on my face, and he then struck me with something under the shoulder when I was down—I asked him not to murder me, because I had got nothing to protect myself—he said that he would, and swore something or other, after striking me again he ran off up the lane; I was nearly blinded with blood—I followed him up this lane—when he found I was after him, he turned into some fields—I followed him over some hedges till he came to a low wall, which he attempted to get over—I caught hold of him, and he struck at me with this jemmy again—I closed with him, caught hold of his hands, and after a desperate struggle succeeded in getting the jemmy out of his hands—he then made a rush at me, drove his head between my legs and tried to throw me on my back—I then hit him with the jemmy on the head, and he said that he would give in, I had basted him—I asked him to come to the station, but he swore he would not go a foot—all this time he kept calling out for "Bill," his companion—I was then in the act of taking out my rattle, and I threatened to blow his brains out if he stirred—he said he would not stir and I sprang my rattle—the fire-engine keeper and
<hi rend="italic">N</hi> 144, came up—I have been confined to my room a month to day, and was in bed three weeks of that time—I still suffer very much in my head—this other jimmy (

I am a carman, of 4, Heneage-street, Spitalfields—I know all the prisoner by sight—I do not know Green by name—I have known Pope three or four years by his calling at warehouses which I cart for in the City to collect bags and empty hogsheads—he used to call at Hazeldine's—in 1862, he told me that a party he was in the habit of buying hogsheads and packages of at King's-cross or Pentonville, had been in the habit of having suger from Brewer's Quay, and a party named Boreham had been in the habit of carting it for them, but had disappointed them two or</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186505080030"/>
<p>three times, and a party asked him if he knew any one who could cart some, and he thought of me—he asked me if I could do so—I said, "Yes,"and asked where the things were going to—he said "To Pentonville, what time will you have a cart ready to go?"—I said, "In about an hour or an hour and a half"—I asked for the delivery-order—he said that if I would have cart then, he would send a party to go with me to the wharf—I do not know whether he took the note with him, or whether it had been lodged previously—this was at about 9.30 in the morning—Maile, who was a perfect stranger to me, afterwards came—he said that he came from Pope about the cart to go to Brewers' Quay—nothing was said about a delivery-order—I went with the cart and Maile—I have been in the habit of fetching goods from these quays—it is usual to take a delivery-order from the owner of the sugar, and to get it marked in the office, and take it up to the foreman, and then a cart-note issues—we get a weight-note at the place where they are consigned to—we leave the order with the man who delivers the goods—I take the cart note to my employer—here is an entry in my book, "April 22d, 1862, thirty loaves from Brewers' Quay to Pentonville, three shillings cartage"—that was to a person named Child—Maile went down on the wharf and soon afterwards they shouted out, "Bowen, Bowen, what do you want?"—I said, "I believe there are some sugars"—they said, "It is under here"—I drew my cart under the loop-hole, and thirty loaves of sugar were lowered into it—I got this cart note (
<hi rend="italic">pro
<lb/>duced</hi>)—it is so long ago I cannot say who gave it to mo, but I know it is the note, because the name is on it—I know the faces of all the pri
<lb/>soners, but I cannot recognise either of them as having seen him at the warehouse, as I cart for so many people—I had to take the note into Phillips' warehouse, and give it to him, and he gives it to the other foreman to deliver—the cart-notes are always delivered after the goods are delivered into the cart by the foreman—Moule went home after the sugar was in the cart—he told me to take them to York-road, eight doors round by King's-cross, leading up to Battle-bridge, and Pope told me so also—I had a little bit of a note to take them to Mr. Child, at a confectioner's shop—I carted the thirty loaves of sugar there, delivered them to Mr. Child, and received 3
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. cartage from him—I put this note on my file, and afterwards found it there—(

<lb/>livery order—I stopped with the cart on the hill till I was called, and then went under the loop-hole, got the 8 cwt. and took them to Child's—Maile did not go with me, he went away home when the goods were loaded—I got a cart-note, which I must have left there—they are all alike—on 2d Oct., here is an entry: "Mr. Childs, 4 barrels from Brewers'-quay to Pentonville, 7
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. 6
<hi rend="italic">d</hi>." there is no description of them, but I think they were flour barrels—Pope told me to go on that occasion—Moule went with me, and left me as before—the weight was 1 cwt. and a half, to three quarters each—I took them to Child's—I am rather in a fog about one delivery, as to Maile going—I have a very strong idea about Pope going once—I never went without a cart-note—I saw nothing of a delivery order on any occasion—I always understood that it was lodged or taken down by some party with the cart.</p>

<p>which you carted sugar?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; hundreds—I dare say I cart for twenty different grocers—I did not know that there was anything wrong at the time I conveyed these goods—two policemen came to my place on a Sunday morning, and asked if I had carted goods from Brewers'-quay twelve months ago—I asked them what name—they could not give me that, but said that it was in the neighbourhood of Clerkenwell or Pentonville—I referred to my book, and found the entries—though I remember the conversation! it is impossible to remember who it was that called out—I should not like to say that, on any particular occasion, Phillips delivered these goods—a man comes down and hires the cart—I do not know that I ever spoke to him six times before—I got a cart-note on one occasion—I did not give it up; very likely they did not pay the cartage—we often keep notes when they are for
<lb/>gotten to be delivered up—Phillips used to receive delivery-orders—I never saw him on these transactions, but I always saw him when I went for my regular customers with orders.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Are you a very careful man in business?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—there has been a complaint against me lately about some tea which was lost; it was supposed to have been stolen, and was found on my premises—that was the first complaint made against me—I was indicted for stealing it, and was acquitted—there are three more charges against me; one for buying old boots, and another for buying a tarpaulin—there are three in
<lb/>dictments against me, charging me with stealing articles from three different persons, but I do not know whether I am indicted for stealing them, or having them in my place—I am out on my own recognizances; my trial stands for the next Middlesex Sessions—I sometimes paid for the carting, and sometimes Pope did—I have paid Mr. Bowen, and sometimes Pope has paid him, but I always deducted the cartage—I did not always pay the carting money—I keep no books, because I have always paid ready money for the goods—I think the first purchase was something like 70
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. or 80
<hi rend="italic">l</hi>. altogether; I cannot exactly recollect—there were 6 or 7 cwt.; you can easily get it—I received invoices; Pope would have them—there was some dispute between us; there was 20

<lb/>bull, the prosecutors—they trade under the name of Joseph Barber and Co., as wharfingers, at Brewers'-quay, and among other things store refined sugars—Phillips was in their employ up to about November last as warehouse-foreman—his duties were the general supervision of the warehouse—it was called Phillips' warehouse—Green was under foreman, assistant foreman, and was employed in the same warehouse—Pope and Maile are not con
<lb/>nected with our place—if a merchant requires 50 loaves of sugar, he sends a delivery-order for them the form of which varies—if anybody applies for blank orders we supply them; if not, they write on blank paper—it is first taken by the carman, or the person applying for the delivery of the goods to the counting-house at Brewer's-quay—I know the routine, but the head clerk can give it to you as well or better than I can—the clerk signs or initials the delivery-order—he already has an entry of it—he has 1000 loaves of sugar on one side, and on the other he shows how it is dis
<lb/>posed of—he takes that from the delivery—order after the goods are delivered—no entry is taken of it till it passes to the carman—it is given up in ex
<lb/>change for the goods by the foreman—supposing the delivery to have taken place at Phillips' warehouse, the order would be returned to the counting-house by the foreman next morning, and written off—the order is copied by the foreman into this book at the time of the delivery of the sugar into the warehouse—the book is kept in the warehouse—Green's writing appears in the books at that time, as keeping them under Phillips' superintendence—I have here the original book, into which the order was copied, and sent into the counting-house with the delivery-orders—the order would then be marked off—we credit the prosecutors, and debit the customers—when the order is marked in the counting-house, the foreman takes it to the person who deli
<lb/>vered the goods, and a cart-note would be given—these (
<hi rend="italic">produced</hi>) are the counterfoils—the foreman would give the delivery-order to another foreman, or to anybody who was disengaged—Green appears to have written most of the counterfoils; he was the delivery foreman—in the ordinary course the counterfoil would show what was the substance of the cart-note—it would be very irregular to give a cart-note without entering the particulars on the counterfoil—this which has been produced by Bowen, bears Green's signature, and I believe the whole of it is his—I can find no record in the delivery-book of any order of 22d April, 1862, to Child or Pope, of 30 loaves of sugar,
<hi rend="italic">ex</hi> Diana, to Bowen's cart, but this is the cart-note; it is in Green's writing, on one of our forms—this is not the first occasion I have looked for it—you will see at the end of this book that some counterfoils are blank, though the cart-notes are gone—we do not number them—I have looked in the place where the delivery-orders of that date are kept, but cannot find one applicable to this transaction—I have looked at 9th September, 1862, and the same answer applies—there is no trace of the transaction, nor of 4 barrels on 2d October—a very considerable quantity, 24 tons, of loaves of sugar has been missed from the warehouse.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. DALEY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> What is the greatest amount of sugar in the warehouse, 1,000 tons?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; I made a mistake last time; I con
<lb/>founded loaves with tons—in 1862 there were 126,000 loaves, or 1262 tons,</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186505080033"/>
<p>in Phillips' warehouse—there was that quantity, on an average, all the year round, with the exception of last year—it is all foreign sugar—Phillips was perhaps fifteen or twenty years foreman; he has been in the employment thirty years, I think—he was discharged about last October—he was re
<lb/>manded ten times—he was tried here in February on part of the charges, and acquitted—he was afterwards arrested at his home on a new charge, not on this charge—he was not supposed to keep the books; he sometimes gave cart-notes—he had a general superintendence—he knew what orders went into the establishment—he was supposed to take all delivery-orders, and see them executed—he would give them to the delivery foreman, or the other foreman, Green.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined by</hi>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. COLLINS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> How long have the prosecutors been in business?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Our late principal was in the business from seventy years ago—stock was last taken in October or November, I believe—stock is taken every five years, of all goods in bond—if goods came in in 1859, stock would be taken of them in 1864; it is taken every five years back, but last year we had a general stock-taking, on account of these deficiencies—all sugar is in bond—it is not our place to take stock like a merchant—I cannot tell you when there was a general stock-taking before; we have never been plun
<lb/>dered to this extent—goods are taken from the ship into a barge, and sometimes to the quay, and then to the first floor of the warehouse—there are four or five floors—sugar-loaves are generally placed on the first or second floor; they might be placed on the fifth floor on a press—the waste in getting them to the top floor depends on the quality of the sugar—there is some
<lb/>times considerable waste—I have never sworn that there was half per cent. of waste; I said that if the loss did not exceed a quarter per cent. the mer
<lb/>chant did not complain—his Lordship made a calculation, but that was upon this fabulous quantity—a quarter per cent. is 5 lbs in the ton—1,262 tons pass through Phillips' warehouse in the year—if it is handled roughly there is more waste, and the waste also depends on the quality, to a certain extent—Phillips Was the head of the warehouse, and had two under foremen, Green and Holman—he had also a great many men under him, thirty men a day on an average, and sixty or eighty if it was a very busy time—these counterfoils in the delivery-order book should be filled up first as if you were writing a cheque—this "J. F." is James Foley's writing; he is a sort of assistant man—"W. F. C." is another assistant on a press; his name is Cave—other people besides Phillips, Green, and Holman wrote counterfoils of cart-notes—this book has the appearance of having bad some counterfoils torn out on 22d April, 1862, and the back is broken or torn—the counterfoil of this cart-note might be torn out on 22d April—the counterfoils both before and after this are dated 22d April—the number of leaves in the books is very irregular—Green had charge of the sugar-floor under Phillips; he was justified in obeying Phillips if he had the delivery-order, and if he saw the goods laden himself—not without, and if he saw the goods delivered he would naturally do it without being told—he has been in the service, I think, seven or eight years—I have been there twelve or thirteen years—there are fifteen or twenty clerks in the counting-house, but it is divided into departments—one clerk principally takes the sugar-books; he is assisted sometimes, if we are pressed—I attended the whole of the re
<lb/>mands at the Mansion-house—Pope was first given in custody, and was put into the witness-box—the men were acquitted, but not on the whole of the charges, and then Pope was given in custody again.</p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. GIFFARD</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Was that a charge of having appropriated sweepings in the warehouse and sweepings only?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes, and they were acquitted—</p>
<xptr type="pageFacsimile" doc="186505080034"/>
<p>your learned friend suggested that it was the privilege of the workmen to take them, but that is matter of opinion—it was Phillips' duty as superin
<lb/>endent to see that no loaves went out without a delivery-order, and if he found it was being done to stop it, and call the attention of his principals to the fact—Phillips and Green have been there some time; they bore high characters, and my employers had great confidence in them.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Would a delivery-order be signed by or on behalf of the person who had goods at the wharf?

<hi rend="italic">Cwt.</hi>; if it was to Bowen's cart the order would say so, or we should not deliver it, we should know nothing of the person to whom he was to take it—the man who delivered them at our wharf would not ask the carman to whom they were going, it would be specified on the delivery-order—this delivery-order ought to be signed by Child—the cart-note would be in the same name as the signer of the delivery-order—if Mr. Smith has one hundred loaves of sugar, and sells fifty to Brown, the delivery-order would be, "Deliver fifty loaves to Mr. Brown, who would endorse on the back of the order, "Deliver to So-and-So's cart"—supposing Brown endorsed the delivery-order, the cart-note would be made out in his name.</p>
