CHRISTIANA THORN . I am the wife of John Thorn . I keep a glass-shop in Liquorpond-street . On the 23d of January, between 11 and 12 o'clock, I heard the bell of my shop door ring, I found the prisoner, Mackenzie, in the shop standing with her back to the door, so that I could not open it; I asked her what she wanted; she said some chipped china; I told her I had not got any; she kept in the shop, she had her apron rolled up and kept eating, I thought she was an idiot; she went out, and I missed two glasses; I pursued her to Saffron-hill. The prisoner, Brown, was with her.
JOHN LIMBRIC . I am an officer. I took Mackenzie and Brown into custody. Brown said, she had not got the glasses, but that Mackenzie had given them to Harwood. Mackenzie did not deny it. I found the glasses at Harwood's lodgings.
