I am an ostler, and live in Fig Tree-court, Barbican—on Saturday, 17th April, about 4 in the afternoon, I was at the Black Horse, Barbican, in a public compartment of the bar—I afterwards came out of there and went into the private compartment—I saw the prisoner there—she had a knife in her hand, and she put it into my right thigh, saying, "That is the b—that stabbed me"—I had never said or done anything to her—she did it directly I went in—I saw the knife in her hand and tried to get it out, but could not—I was taken to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and was there a fortnight—there was no one but the prisoner in the private department—I think she had been drinking a little—three days before she had threatened she would rip my inside out for me—a man named Dan Saunders had died in the hospital, and the prisoner said I had kicked him and killed him.</p>

<lb/>son; nearest the window on the other side was Green, and outside of her was Smith—just as I came round to the front of them, I saw Robinson's right arm go, and I saw the gentleman's chain of his watch drop from him—I could not see the hand—I could only see the elbow, between the gentleman and the window—the hand was in front of the gentleman, against his waistcoat—I saw Smith touch Robinson directly she caught sight of me—he stepped back on to his short leg (
<hi rend="italic">The prisoner was lame</hi>)—and he got between the two females—he had his hand down—I put my arms round the three of them, and called to the gentleman, "You have lost your watch"—they were all standing in a knot, no one else was near them—he felt in his pocket, and said, "I have"—two gentlemen assisted me—they kept the crowd away—there was a boy there, and he said, "He has got the watch in his left hand; there is the watch"—a gentleman seized Robinson's hand, and I took this watch from it—the bow was broken—I believe the prosecu
<lb/>tor did not see the watch till we got to the station—he there identified it as his property—Robinson said that some one put it into his hand—he said he had come from Glasgow that morning—the women said nothing—I have got the bow of the watch—at the time we were at the station a gentleman came there, and said the bow had been picked up outside the shop, and taken in to Mr. Houghton, and I went to Mr. Houghton for it.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Robinson</hi>. He asked the gentleman if he had lost his watch, and he said, "Yes"—he said, "Did you see this man by the side of you?" He said, "No. On my oath I never saw the man by the side of me at all. I saw the females."
<hi rend="italic">Witness</hi>. The gentleman did not say that he had not seen Robinson—I asked him to come to the station, and he said, "I can't come now."</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Robinson</hi>. You ought to have taken the man in custody who gave it into my hand—you saw the man get away.
<hi rend="italic">Witness</hi>. There was no one near to you, only you three and the gentleman at the corner of the window.</p>

This morning I happened to be standing here and the females by me; a young man said to me, "Hold that a moment." I own I had the watch in my hand. The moment I was asked about it I gave it up. I did not attempt to rescue, or anything like that, because I was not the person that took it.

<p>the folio of the journal—I do not mean to say that when the cash comes in to pay an account it would not be written off in the ledger—I write it off in the day-book—I have not got the ledger here, it is at Budge-row—Mr. Hedges, our ledger-keeper, keeps it—this is the travellers's order-book, and all orders brought in by the travellers are signed for here—from this book I post to the journal, and from the journal into the ledger—I have nothing to do with the ledger, only with this book—somebody else posts it up into the journal—I hand the money over to the cashier, who makes an entry in the cash-book—he is not here—he always sees me enter it—the amount cannot be entered in the cash-book without being entered here—this is the only book that is here—the prisoner gives me the money—the cashier signs for all amounts—if Mr. Brushfield's money came in on 5th Feb., the order being given on the 4th, I should not write the order over again I should merely take the name and address—if you notice this entry of Edwards of 1

<lb/>lector—very few items of cash are entered here, and all moneys entered here the cashier entered into the cash-book, which I sent into the counting-house with the money—the prisoner has never accounted to the cashier, to my recollection—I will not swear that he has not—if he did so I might enter it and the cashier would sign—all moneys I received from the prisoner I enter in his cash-book—the cash-book of the firm in which I enter the cash to the prisoner is at Budge-row, but all moneys which the prisoner brought in I entered in his book, which is here—I call this the prisoner's book because it is his order-book—it is kept by me—I do not think there are any of his entries here—I did not bring the cash-book because I had no idea that it would be wanted, as all moneys received by the prisoner were entered in this book by me—I entered them first into this book by the prisoner's direction—it is the rule to put it into this book first, and there has been no exception to it to my knowledge—I do not know whether the prisoner is charged with a single item before 2d Feb.—he was paid 2½; per cent, commission, but no travelling expenses, to my knowledge—he had so much a week on account—he collected quarterly accounts if they were his own accounts, and he ought to have brought them to me.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Read</hi>: "10th March, '66—5, Denmark-road—Gentlemen, I beg to give you a month's notice from this date—Yours respectfully, Henry Lymer")—he did not remain until 10th April; I think the last time we saw him was 10th March, but he ought to have stayed under that agreement till 10th April—when I next saw him he was in custody.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did he make an application on account of his expenses?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; on one occasion for a horse and chaise, which he pur
<lb/>chased—that was after he had been twelve months with us—we made a contingent agreement with him to pay a portion of the expenses of a horse and chaise three days a week, if the profits on the sales were such as to warrant it—it is not usual with us to allow expenses—I do not know what other persons do—he had no salary, but a commission on the amount of his sales if they turned out good debts; bad debts were to be deducted from the gross—we consider the commission payable when the amount was received, but if he did not get the money there was no commission—he was not responsible for bad debts—he drew regularly every week, generally on a Saturday, on account of his commission—after he had given this notice he stated that he thought we owed him something on account of his horse hire—he did not ask for anything on account of commission; he had over
<lb/>drawn that—there has been no settlement, because it has been overdrawn all through—I have the control of the books, the opportunity of seeing them has not been afforded him—we have reminded him frequently of his overdrawn account—I cannot say it has ever been submitted to him, I have not done it—he did not make an application for money when he gave the notice, and say that he must have money—the application for money was before the notice to quit—I did not say, "I will give you no money now that you have given me notice to quit"—since giving the notice he made the suggestion that we owed him something on account of horse hire—he did not say to me just before giving notice that he could not get on without money for expenses, nor did he say that he would hold the money till we came to some settlement with him—he did not make a direct application for money beyond saying that he could get over his ground quicker—he has not said to me that he could not get on without money; I don't know whether he has to my partner—he has never asked me for a settlement of the account between us—he always owed us money, for the balance was on the wrong side—he overdrew the amount of commission which he had earned—he did not ask me to have a settlement of accounts, or say that he would not pay over the money he had received till we had some settlement.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. WILLIAMS</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Is it a fact that he has always overdrawn in advance of his commission?

<hi rend="italic">Prisoner's Defence</hi>. I have been a traveller for a gentleman in the City. On the morning of 17th April I left him about 7 o'clock; I proceeded along the road and came to a wood. I got over a stile, and saw a man running away; I went into the field and found these things; I had two straps in my pocket; I intended to keep these things in my possession. After I proceeded along the road some distance I met two policemen; one of them asked me some questions, and I gave him straightforward answers. He then left me a second time; I walked along the road about half a mile, and turned round and saw the policemen coming along. Would a man if he had entered this house have fallen into the trap and not make an effort to escape? Do you not think if he could have got away a dozen times be would not avail him-self of the opportunity? The evidence is circumstantial and contradictory; there was no person seen on the premises late at night or early in the morning.

<lb/>green—on 25th March, between 8 and 9 o'clock, I saw the deceased, William Webb, inside the passage of a house where toys are made—he was drunk—I knew him before—I heard him say that he wanted some money—that was said to Mr. Webb, the toy-maker—I don't know whether he was his brother or not—I saw that person try to put him out of the house—he would not go—he up with his fist to strike him, and caught the panel of the door instead—the prisoner came up directly afterwards, and said he would soon have him out—he did get him out, and when he got out he took off his coat on the edge of the kerb, and offered it to somebody to hold—nobody would take it—the prisoner then up with his fist, and caught the deceased in the chest, and knocked him down—he fell as if he was dead—his head went on the edge of the kerb—there is a little opening where the water runs down—a young man got hold of his arm to help him up—the prisoner said to him, "What have you to do with it?"—the prisoner then went away—I helped to carry the deceased to the doctor's, and from there on a stretcher to the police-station—I saw blood come out of one of his ears—that was after he had fallen.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> I am a labourer by trade, and when I cannot get any labour, I go out into the fields, and get water-cresses—that is only in the winter time—I am brother-in-law to the witness Cogden—I was not drinking with the deceased before I came up to the toy-shop—I had not seen him—I had not been in any beer-shop—I did not hear the prisoner ask him to come out of the toy-shop—he took hold of him and pushed him out—he then let go of him, and the deceased wanted to fight him—the prisoner said he did not want to fight—the deceased squared up to him, and the prisoner hit him in the chest, and he fell—I did not see Charles Bardell or Henry Jennings there—I swear that the prisoner struck the deceased in the chest with his fist—his fist was shut—the deceased was standing in the middle of the road, and the prisoner backed him out from the middle of the road, and then hit him, and he fell—he was about three yards from the kerb when he fell—the deceased was doing nothing when he struck him—he was not going away—he was backing, and the prisoner was following him.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> You say the deceased was standing on the kerb, when he took his coat off?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; it was on the opposite kerb that he fell—the road is about wide enough for three big carts to go by—the deceased had his hands up when the prisoner pushed him, in a fighting attitude—they were going to fight—the prisoner refused to fight; then he agreed, the drunken man made him so wild—he was sober, but the deceased made him wild, and that made him hit him.</p>

<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did you see the deceased in the toy-shop?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; he made a blow at Mr. Webb, who keeps the shop, and struck the panel of the door—I did not see him take the prisoner by the tails of his coat, or spit on him—I heard the prisoner say, he had better go away—that was after he got him out of the passage—the deceased wanted to fight; he squared up to the prisoner—they were standing just off the kerb—the pri
<lb/>soner then backed the deceased into the road, and struck him—they were then about three or three and a half yards from the kerb, on the opposite side—he struck him with his closed fist—there were a goodish many persons standing about—I heard a boy say before the Magistrate, that the prisoner did not strike the deceased—I can swear that he did, with his clenched fist.</p>
