JOHN DAVEY was indicted for stealing, on the 22d of January , 12lbs. of horse-hair, value 12s. , the goods of Jeremiah Quin .
JEREMIAH QUIN. I am a coach-maker , and live in Red Lion-yard, Clerkenwell . My coach stood in the yard - the coachman called me up about six o'clock in the morning: I found the cushions cut, and the horse-hair gone from them - I found the prisoner at the watch-house with it.
JOHN PILGRIM . I am a watchman. On this morning I saw the prisoner go down Red Lion-yard with something in his hand. I took him soon after coming out of the yard with this sack full of hair - he said he had bought it, and was going to take it to Field-lane; I called Quin up, who found his coach lining cut to pieces.
GUILTY . Aged 19.
Confined One Month .
