I am a solicitor, at Uxbridge, and clerk to the Magistrates there—I was present at the hearing of a summons against George Stevens, at the instance of the prisoner—I produce the information, and this is the summons—he hearing took place on 30th March, at Uxbridge, before Lieut-Colonel Greville and other Magistrate—the prisoner was sworn—I took a note of what she said—(
<hi rend="italic">This was statement by the prisoner that George Stevens was the father of her child, and in cross-examina
<lb/>tion she stated, "I went to Mrs. Baker and saw her alone—I did not say to Mrs. Baker that if she would not come to-day and swear she saw Stevens in bed with me I would swear that I saw stevens in bed with her"</hi>)—it was upon this statement the perjury was assigned—Mr. Gardener, the attorney for the defence cross-examined her, and cautioned her.</p>

I am the wife of James Baker, a market gardener, of Arlington—the prisoner was formerly in my service—she left on the 24th December, 1866—at the time she was there a man named Stevens was in my service as Mr. Baker's groom—the prisoner called on me on a Friday evening in last March—I could not tell the day of the month, it was a fortnight and two days before the hearing—she said she had been to Bedford, and she thought as she was passing the house she would call in and see me and the children—I said, "Well Charlotte, how are you?"—she said, "Very well, thank you, ma'am; and while I am here, I may as well tell you that I have been to Mr. Woodward's to-day, to see George Stevens, he is the father of my child, and if he does not keep it by fair means he must by foul"—I said I knew nothing of the case—she said, "I know you don't, ma'am"—she then wished me good evening, and left—she came on the following Tuesday, and said, "I have come to ask you if you will come to Uxbridge and speak for me"—I said, "No; Mr. Baker would not allow me"—she said her lawyer told her that I should only have a few words to say in her case—I said I could not come, and she said, "If you do not come and swear that you saw George Stevens in my bed, I will swear I saw him in yours"—this was in the parlour—I directly took her into the kitchen where my two servants, Compton and Lane, were, and said, "What do you think this wicked girl says, that if I do not come and swear I saw George Stevens in her bed, she will swear she saw him in mine"—the prisoner said, "And so I will"—she repeated that twice over—she then walked out—I heard nothing more of it till a summons camf from her for me to appear at Uxbridge—I went there—I saw Mr. Gardener, and made a statement to him.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Cross-examined</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> When the prisoner first came, did she ask you to give her a character?

I live at 27, Anchor Alley, St. George's—on 20th June, about 2 o'clock in the morning, I was in Red Lion Alley alone—I had been drinking a little, but was not drunk—I met the two prisoners and another woman—one of them said, "Now let him have it"—upon that, Calman struck me two violent blows in the face, and I was on the ground in a moment—I put my hand to my watch, and kept that from going—the chain broke off—I thought at first my watch was gone, but afterwards found it was only my chain—I saw Calman afterwards, and identified him—I had seen him before—he only lived in the next street to me—I never talked to him in my life.</p>

<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Between 1.0 and 2.0—I was not drunk—I had been on business to Islington—I had been to three or four public-houses—I won't swear it was not more—I had a glass of cooper at the first—I was about an hour there—at the second about two minutes—I had half-a-quartern of gin at the third—I had my senses perfectly about me—I told the officer I did not know what I had lost; I believed my watch and chain, and some money—I did not say I had lost 17
<hi rend="italic">s</hi>. and a gold watch and chain—the constable found 16

Nemia said, 'I can take the note.' I said, 'Well, there is the money office.' She went in, and came out with the money. I said, 'I want 5

I went to Mr. Max, and asked if he had samples of leather bags; but he must have known that I had left Shipley's. I pawned them because I had not sufficient for what I required. I should have gone to him on Monday, and told him I had not got the money, but would pay him as soon as possible.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> I understand you have never seen him again till to-day?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Not from the 10th till to-day—I regularly attend at the Phoenix Tavern—I only attend in the bar when my friend is a little busy—I go there every morning—I have one pupil—I give an hour's lesson—not every day; but I am there every day—I do teaching and tuning—it was not till 21st June any reference was made to me about this matter—I was simply asked if I remembered it—it occurred on a Wednesday, and this was last Wednesday three weeks: it was the day of the rifle volunteers going for practice, and I was going with my friend who was a member of the corps; and, passing the Canal Tavern, I saw the prisoner—that was the last I saw of him, at 3.20, because we generally get to the range at 4 o'clock.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Had you ever seen the prisoner before?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; but my attention was directed to him on account of his paying—the stranger who came down to me said, "Do you recollect seeing certain persons come down to the Phoenix to have refreshment?"—I said, "When?"—he said, "Some time ago, five or six of them"—he said, "What did you think of them?"</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he say "Some time ago?"
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No; he spoke of the date—he asked me if I recollected certain persons coming on the Wednesday to have refreshment—I said, "Yes"—he said, "Did you notice anything particular?" I said, "No"—he said, "Nothing whatever?"—I said, "Yes; there were two women and three or four men"—he said, "Did you notice anyone particular?"—I said, "Only the one that paid me"—he said, "Did you notice anything particular about him?"—I said, "No"—he said, "Should you know him again?"—I said, "I think I should"—he said, "Did he order?"—I said, "Yes"—he said, "Who paid?"—I said, "He did; he ordered some chops and wanted them cooked."</p>
<p>
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Do not talk about the chops, we are talking about what the man said to you?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No more than could I swear to the man again, and I said, "I believe I can"—he went away, and afterwards came down again and said, "I want to subpoena you"—I do not know who he was, but he brought a subpoena for me to come up and give evidence—I have never seen the prisoner from 10th June till I came into Court—until I came into Court I did not know who I was to see; I had not seen him in the interval—I took notice of him; this is the person who ordered the beer and who paid me—the Canal Tavern is 300 yards from the Phoenix, and half a mile from the nearest steam-boat pier for London, and nearly three-quarters of a mile from the railway station, I should imagine.</p>

<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Whether you knew his son, who was a perfect stranger; how came you to say "Yes"?

<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. MOODY</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> Did he mention the day of the month?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> No, he only said "Wednesday," and I looked at the almanack—he did not say "Wednesday week," or ask me if anybody bad been down on the last Wed
<lb/>nesday before he saw me—he did not say, Wednesday, June 10th, he only asked me if I knew the date—he said, "Some persons who were here on Wednesday," without saying what Wednesday—I think he described the height and appearance of his son—he said what complexion he was, and the color of his hair; I do not think he said anything about whiskers—I am certain it was past 3 o'clock—there were five or six of the party, and two or three were females—they had three or four pots of beer, and the chops, and this young man and a woman had some port wine after the others had gone out—the prisoner is the only one who paid me.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">MR. PATER</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> I suppose the father described to you the appearance of his son?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> Yes; and then asked me it I should know him—it was in consequence of the description the father gave me that I recognized him—I am sure it was Wednesday—I myself looked at the almanack to see the date—my boy is fourteen years old—I kept him at home because his father was ill in bed.</p>
<p>
<hi rend="smallCaps">COURT</hi>.
<hi rend="italic">Q.</hi> At what time did they leave?
<hi rend="italic">A.</hi> At a little before 5.0, I think—I never saw Francis, the professor of music, before they brought him down—I did not see him in my house on Wednesday, the 10th; if he was there, and saw the prisoner, I did not see him—the Rifle Rangers came past our door; the master told me to come and see them pass, but I did not see them—until I came into Court to give my evidence, I had no notion who I was to see—he might or might not have been the person I was thinking about—I have never seen him before or since.</p>
