GEORGE MITCHELL . I am a broker , 28 Wilson street, Finsbury-square . The chair was taken from my door on the 14th of December, I saw a man pass my window with the chair; I came out, and overtook him, about twenty yards down the street; I stopped him; and took the chair from him. I know it is my chair. The prisoner said, he was employed by a person to carry the chair for them. I did not see the prisoner take the chair; I am sure it is my own chair.
Prisoner's Defence. I am a butcher; I was selling meat that day; a man asked me to carry that chair to a grocer's shop.
The prisoner called five witnesses, who gave him a good character.
Fined 1 s. and discharged.
