EDWARD HALL . I work at Osborne's livery stables, King's-mews . On the 11th of April, I saw the prisoner riding some horses in the yard, and about an hour after. I missed my jacket. I found him in Bedford-street, with it on; he said a boy gave it him. I had left it hanging in the stables.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

Prisoner's Defence. I took it to appear decent in, as I wanted to get a place, and should have returned it in the evening.

GUILTY . Aged 16.

Whipped and Discharged.
