She was positive that Carty had stabb'd the Deceased before he got the Prisoner's Sword, and attack'd Carty. The Information of the Deceased before he died was read in Court, which was much to the same Purpose with the former Evidence; and other Evidences confirm'd some of the Circumstances.

Mr. Packer depos'd, That he being Clerk to Mr. Barrett, a Master in Chancery , Mr. Borrett told him he design'd to go out of Town, and order'd him to make up his Accounts: That he did so, and brought the Money to the Chambers in Symond's Iwn upon the Day mentioned in the Indictment, in order to have paid it to Mr. Borrott; but Mr. Borrett being then busy, defer'd the Receiving it till the next Morning. That then he lock'd up the Money in a Scrutoure in the Study, lock'd up the Drawers, the Study Door, and Chamber-Door, and went away about 8 a-Clock, and went to the Tavern. That a Messenger came to him about ten, and he went and found all the Doors broken open, and the Drawers set scattering about the Room, but the Money gone; and that there was in that Next of Drawers a Bank Bill of 20 l. and a South-Sea Bond of 50 l. which were left in the Drawers where the Money was, but knew not who committed the Fact. But upon enquiring afterwards, began to have some suspicion of the Prisoner, who was a Clerk in the Office; for that whereas he this Evidence keeping one Key of the Chambers, and the Laundress another, he had heard that after the Prisoner was gone from the Office, and himself had lock'd up the Chambers, the Prisoner did get the Laundress's Keys, and went into the Chambers, under Pretence of setching a Letter that he had left there; though it was not Post-Night; it did not appear that he had any Occasional so to do: And also hearing that he had also been seen to go from the Chambers a second Time, at about half an Hour after 9 a Clock, and on Account of a Hammer found in the Chambers. Rebeckah Golding depos'd, That she delivered the Keys to the Prisoner at about half an Hour past 8 a-Clock that Night the Robbery was committed, that he return'd the Keys in about a quarter of an Hour: That she went afterwards, about a Quarter before 9, and found the Door but single lock'd, and she shut the Windows, and double lock'd the Door, and that about to she went again, and found the Chamber Door, and Study Door broken open, the Hinges having been taken off, and the Drawers lying scattered about. Here the Prisoner ask'd the Evidence if these Keys did not use to lye publickly among other Keys in a Bunch, in the Affidavit Office: To which she reply'd they did, but were not withstanding very safe, there being none but reputable Gentlemen, and that no Body used these Keys but she Prisoner and the Master. She added, that at 10 a-Clock the Windows were fast barred, only 2 Nails drawn in one of the Hinges of the Shutter, and that in the Morning she found a Hammer lying in the Window, near the Prisoner's Desk.

John Spires , the Porter depos'd, That at 10 a-Clock he was called by the Laundress, and when he went with her into the Chamber, he see the Lock of the Door had been unskrew'd and taken off, and the inner Door lying all on one side, and the Drawers standing in several Places, whereupon he went and acquainted Mr. Packer, and he came and missed his Money. Jams Spires depos'd, That as he was sitting in the Entry the Prisoner came down the Steps from the Master's Chambers, at about half an Hour after 9 a-Clock that Night, and went out the back Way towards Fetter-Lane, or Bond's Stables. George Essex depos'd, He saw the Prisoner in the Court after 9 a Clock, and the Prisoner own'd he was looking into the Cellar for some of his Acquaintance, but seeing none there, he went home. There were also 2 Hammers produc'd in Court one that was found in the Chamber the next Morning, which was supposed to have been borrowed by the Prisoner, of one Mr. Peed, who lodg'd in Mr. White's House, and the other one, that some Time after had been given by Mr. White's Maid to Mr. Peed's Servant; when he sent for it instead of his own. Mr. Peed depos'd. That the Hammer produced in Court, and sworn to be found in the Chambers, was very much like his Hammer, but he would not positively swear to it, but his Servant was more positive, having taken Notice of its being mark'd with a P cut in it, and that when she went to Mr. White's Maid for Mr. Peed's Hammer, did take Notice to Mr. Peed, that the Hammer Mr. White's Maid had given her, was not Mr. Peed's Hammer, differing in the Handle, tho' there had been a P burnt upon it. The Prisoner pleaded, that there had been tampering, as to the Hammer, and called two Evidences, who depos'd, That a Woman came to them, and enquir'd very pressingly, if they knew the Owner of that Hammer, and upon their saying they knew not the Owner, was told by this Woman, that they did not know the Value of that Hammer, it was worth to Guineas, and ask'd how they would like that Hammer and 10 l. at the End of it. The Jury having considered the Evidence, acquitted him.

Humphrey Anger , of the Parish of Hornsey , was indicted for assaulting Martin Lewen , Gentleman , on the High Way, and taking from him 7 Guineas, and 16 Shillings in Silver , the 23d of December, 1720 . Martin Lewen , the City Marshal depos'd, That as he was riding to Muzzle-Hill, the 23d of December last was two Years, being about the Middle of the Lane between Highgate and Hornsey , about five a Clock in the Evening, he saw two Men on Foot before him, with their Hats slapping, in browaish colour'd Coats, and in such Posture, that he was apprehensive they were Foot-pads, and had some Thoughts of turning back; but at last resolving to venture, went forward, and as soon as he came up to them, they both flew at his House, and Dyer caught hold of his Bridle, and the Prisoner took hold of his Leg, and was going to throw him off from his House, but he desired him not to do it, for he would voluntarily alight, and did immediately, he having almost Slung him off, and after clapping Pistols to his Breast, which were large Pistols with Brass Caps, he desired them to take away the Pistols, and he would give them what Money he had; he gave to Dyer 7 Guineas, that Dyer kneel'd down on his Knees and broke off the Button of his Breeches, and finding 16 or 17 Shillings that he had forgotten in the Hurry, they damn'd him, and threatned to shoot him for telling them a Lye, and rattled their Pistols very much about him: That having consented to let him go, Dyer was for cutting his Horse's Bridle, but he prevail'd upon them not to do it, the Lane being dirty and so he left them. Mr. Lewen being ask'd whether it was light enough for him to distinguish the Person; he reply'd it was, and though he would not swear positively, he did verily believe Anger was one of those that robb'd him. The Prisoner at the Beginning of his Tryal desired that Dyer might be put out of the Court, and not hear what the Prosecutor depos'd, which was done, and being afterwards call'd in, depos'd as the prosecutor had done, varying in no Circumstance, except that whereas the Prosecutor thought it was Dyer that took the Silver out of his Pocket, he depos'd it was Anger that took it, and added, that Anger would have had him took away his Horse, and would have had him shot the Prisoner for not giving them the Silver: And that having done robbing Mr. Lenen, they got over the Hedge and went off. The Prisoner deny'd the Fact, or that he had any Acquaintance with the Prosecutor at that Time; but being noisy, and too outrageous, so far over shot himself, as strenuously to affirm, that he not Dyer, the Evidence, could not be in that Robbery, because they were at that Time both in Custody, having been taken up on Suspicion of another Robbery: To clear up this Matter, the Court ordered the Books of the Jayl of Newgate to be produced, and search'd in Court, and it appear'd, that the Time of their being apprehended together, was near three quarters of a Year distant from the Time of the Commission of this Robbery.

He was also indicted a second Time, for robbing John Sibley on the High-Way, and taking from him 9 s. 6 d. in Money , the 21st of September, in the Year 1711 . Edward Herring the Waggoner depos'd, That between Knights-Bridge and Hyde-Park Corner , two Men called him by his Name, and bid him stop, and John Sibley being in the Waggon, they commanded him to come out, and took from him 9 s. 6 d. but he could not swear to the Persons, it being about two or three a-Clock in a dark Morning: Here he made a Mistake as to the Time the Waggoner depos'd the Robbery was committed; in answer to which, he reply'd. That indeed he had been in a Mistake as to the Time, being so long since; but had he had his Pocket Book he could have been very punctual, but he had the Misfortune to lose it, for in that he had entred down a particular Account of all the Robberies he had committed: Being ask'd by the Court what was his Design for keeping a Journal, whether it was upon the Perusal of his Robberies, he might the more particularly repent of them? he reply'd, no, but it was for his own Safety, that he might be the more exact when he should have the Opportunity to save himself, by becoming an Evidence. As to the Manner of robbing John Sibley, he depos'd it was done by himself and the Prisoner, at the Place. and after the Manner the Carrier had depos'd, and the same Day they went to Southwark Fair, and from thence to Black Heath, and there having committed another Robbery they were pursued, and he shot the Pursuers Horse. The Prisoner also deny'd this Fact, wishing he might find no Mercy in this World, or the World to come, if he was any Ways concern'd in either of them; but being well known to be an ill Person, it did not avail, the Jury found him Guilty of both Indictments . Death .
