ELIZA MARTINDALE . I am the daughter of Judith Martindale , who lives in Henry-street, Pentonville - the prisoner was our washerwoman . On the 5th of March, about ten o'clock, she came, and asked me if my mother would want her? I told her we had employed somebody else; the watch was on the mantle-piece. I left her in the room about five minutes, when I returned I found she was gone without waiting for me, and missed the watch.
WILLIAM HAYES . I am a salesman, and live in Sparrow-corner, Minories. On the 5th of March, about one o'clock, a man called me over, and asked me if I wanted to buy a watch? I bought it of the prisoner for 14 s. The prosecutrix claimed it.
