JOHN LILLY . I lodge at Mr. Levi's house; I was looking out at the window. and saw three sweeps coming by; two of them stopped, and looked at the bats - they waited a bit, and then the prisoner, who was one of them, took a hat, and gave it to another, who ran off; the prisoner stopped, and looked in at the window; I went with the prosecutor, and took him - the other was gone; I am certain he is the person - it was light enough to see him; it was about half-past five o'clock.
The prisoner put in a written defence, declaring his innocence.
NOT GUILTY .
