On Saturday evening, 6th April, about nine o'clock, I was sent for to the King's Head public-house, in Perrywinkle Street, Brook Street, Ratcliff; the landlord of the King's Head sent for me, and a man was given into my custody for breaking a square of glass—I told the landlord he had better summon him, and with that the man struck me in the chest—I then took him into custody for assaulting me—that was outside the house—I saw the three prisoners there—I was thrown down and dragged about twenty-five yards by my legs—I was kicked and bumped all the way—I still had hold of the man whom I first took in custody—when I was thrown down he was rescued from me—I went to the assistance of Sergeant Butt, who had Barrett in custody—Barrett had dragged me away from the man I had in custody—he knocked me down and knelt on my chest—he was punching me in the ribs—270
<hi rend="italic">K</hi> came up and pulled him off me, and I then went again to Butt's assistance—we got as far as Stepney Causeway, and the mob began to throw flint stones and bricks at us—Barrett and Sullivan were there at the time—I did not see Sullivan do anything—I took a woman named Murphy in custody, who has since been discharged, and while I had her in custody Bayley picked up mud from the gutter and threw it in my face all the way to the station—I was smothered in mud from head to foot—several constables came up, and the three prisoners were taken into custody.</p>

<p>prisoner through several streets—I could not run as quickly as he did—the constable took him, and I met him and the policeman coming back again—I told the constable what he had done, and he was taken to the station—we went to look for the old gentleman, but could not find him—we found the umbrella in the railings of a false area, in the direction the prisoner ran—he threw it away while I was chasing him—the prisoner said at the station that he had had a quarrel with two chaps, that they wanted to do something to him, and he was running away from them.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Prisoner. Q.</hi> Did you lose sight of the man you were running after?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Just as you went round the corner I lost sight of you, but before you were at the end of the street I caught you again—I am sure you are the same man, by the

<lb/>man down—he was a helpless old man, and you threw him down by sheer strength—I kept sight of you all the way except at the corners of the streets.</p>

On the night of 12th April I was on duty in Wood Street, Cheapside, in plain clothes—I saw the prisoner there; he was coming out of one of the doorways in Wood Street—I saw him go into another one, and, having suspicion of him, I watched him—I saw him go into several doorways; I got into a doorway myself—I saw him put his hand into a letter-box—I further watched him into Cheapside—I then saw him put his hand into the letter-box of Mr. Fos
<lb/>ter, wine merchant, at the corner of Bread Street, Cheapside—I watched him from there down Cheapside to Bow Lane—in Bow Lane I saw him go into two doorways—I could not see what he did there, because it was dark—I followed him down Bow Lane to the corner of Watling Street—I went up to him and told him that I was a police officer, and I should take him into custody on the charge of attempting to steal letters from letter-boxes—he said nothing—I took him to the station, searched him, and found on him a rough draft of a will, a power of attorney, and a letter directed to Mr. Muter, 17, Pinner's Hall, Old Broad Street—he was asked how he come there—he said he was waiting for a young man named Walker, who worked at Sturt and Sharp's, Wood Street—I found on him some circulars of Beard and Son, 17, Pinner's Hall; he said they were his father's—he was asked by the inspector to give an account of the power of attorney—he gave no account of it.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Did he tell you that he had an appointment with Walker?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—he did not say that while he was waiting for him a man came up and asked him if he could direct him to a tobacconist's shop, and told him that he was very hard up for money, and asked him to lend him half a crown till Monday—he said at the Mansion House that he bought it</p>

I am about to remand you"—I took down what he said—I am trusting to my memory, and I believe I have a good one to trust to—he said, "What I stated to the officer is quite correct; there have been four letters wrongly addressed, delivered at our place lately; that post-letter is one of them"—a remark was then made by the Alderman about the papers, and the prisoner said, "I purchased the deed of a man in the street for half a crown, observing that it bore a five-shilling stamp, and thinking it was of greater value."</p>

<hi rend="italic">Policeman H</hi> 119). I took Richard Bryan into custody between eight and nine in the evening of 4th April, at a beer shop—I charged him with stabbing police-constable Izzard—he said he never stabbed the constable, but he was there when

<hi rend="italic">Richard Bryan. Q.</hi> Did you not ask me whether I had a knife upon me at the time, and did not I tell you a straightforward story?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> You never said anything about a knife—this knife was given to me afterwards by Clitheroe; you told me he had it—you said, "The knife I had, Clitheroe has got; I lent it to him to eat his supper with"—that was next day, after we had been to the police-court.</p>

House of Correction, Holloway—I knew him before—he has often threatened, if I did not leave Bryan alone, he would do me an injury—he tried to put a knife into me that night; he was drunk—I was called a fool for not hitting him—I said I would wait till I saw him sober, but I never saw him from that day to this.</p>

I am divisional surgeon to the police—about five o'clock on 4th April I was called to examine Izzard at the station—he had an incised wouud, between two or three inches in length, on the right side of the spine, in the lower dorsal region—it was an inch in depth in the centre—it had passed through his over-coat, his tunic, the leather portion of his braces, three or four folds of his flannel shirt, and also a coarse grey shirt—it must have been a severe stab—it was a dangerous wound of itself, and would have been much more dangerous had it not been impeded by so much clothiug—it could scarcely have been produced by such a knife as this; it is possible it might be, but it would have required very great force—this is a blunt instrument, and the wound was a very sharp-cut one—it was a wound which a pocket-knife would produce.</p>

He says he did not see me stab him. I gave a straight-forward account about the knife, and told the policeman where to find it. A knife was taken from George Pollard by a young man who would not appear, because he knew him. I saw him take it from him, and I believe it has since been done away with.

I am a travelling inspector attached to the missing letter department of the General Post Office—the prisoner was a letter-carrier employed in the south-west district at Pimlico, and his walk was the Wilton Place walk—on the afternoon of 29th April I went to the district office, and shortly after six the prisoner was brought into the postmaster's room—he was about to go out on the six o'clock delivery—I asked him to let me see all his letters—he produced from his pouch two bundles tied up, arranged for delivery—I looked over them, and said, "I believe you were on duty here between twelve and one o'clock to-day, and you went out on your delivery to Wilton Place walk at that time?"—he said, "Yes"—I said, "Did you see anything of a letter directed to Mr. E. J. Lance, hatter, &c, 12, Middle Row North, Knightsbridge, London?"—he said, "Yes; I delivered the letter at Mr. Lance's shopn—I said, "I am aware you delivered one letter there, but that is not the one I am speaking to you about"—he said, "I had but one letter for Mr. Lance"—I said, "There was another letter for Mr. Lance sorted to you, and you did not deliver it, and it was owing to so many complaints of letters being lost, containing stamps, notes, and other things, in your delivery that it was purposely sent to find out by whom they are taken"—he said, "I had but one letter for Mr. Lance, and that I delivered"—I then directed Rumbold the officer to search him, and raw him take from the inside of his coat pocket these two letters, one directed to Upper Charles Street, S.W.,</p>

<hi rend="italic">s</hi>.—I said, "How do you account for having these in your possession?"—he said, "I don't know anything about them"—I said, "It is very singular that they should have got into the inside of your coat pocket like that without your knowledge"—he repeated, "I don't know anything about them"—they bear the post-mark of the 29th—one was posted in London, and the other at Cheltenham.</p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Were they taken out of his pocket like this?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> They were not open then, they were opened before the Magistrate—I don't recollect seeing any paper taken from his pocket—there is only one postman on his round after the first delivery in the morning; there are three in the morning—the letter in question has never been found—there was no hesitation about his answering as to these letters.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined. Q.</hi> Do you know how many letters were sorted to his delivery that did not belong to it?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; as far as I know, these might have been the only two—the prisoner has been in the service about twelve years—he came with a good character—when first I knew him I always considered him a man of very excellent character—I have been told he is married—I have heard he has been taking care of a house of Lord Alfred Paget's, in Grosvenor Place, for the last five years.</p>

<lb/>tody, and said, "You are one of the party who stole my watch and chain"—lie said, "No, I was running after a fire"—I saw Evans walking with a constable—he said that he had been to a fire, and denied all knowledge of the robbery—I found my watch in my pocket—I was not quite sober, but I well understood what I was about—my head was slightly affected, as I cannot take much—I had never seen the prisoners before.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes—I had two glasses of ale; Wilkins paid for one glass and I for the other—he called for a pot of six ale and paid for it, and I returned it—there was not more than one person in the public-house the whole time—no one came to me when I was knocked down, except one gentleman—I received a blow on the left side of my head and fell sideways—Wilkins was on my left and Evans on my right—the robbery was committed about eleven o'clock—I left my master's, in the Hampstead Road, about 9.30—I was in the prisoners' company about a quarter of an hour before I found out that I did not know them.</p>

<lb/>kins said, "You make quite a mistake; you never saw me before; I was going to a fire"—when he was taken to the station he said, "Yes, we were drinking with him at the public-house"—they said that another party attacked Powell—I found this piece of chain (
