It appeared that the Prisoner came into the Shop and cheapned some Goods, and the Prisoner fingered a great many of the Goods, and at length Mr. Brown's Wife missed the Scissar-Case , and called for one of her Servants to come down stairs; but the Prisoner leaping over the Counter, dropt them on the other side; and being search'd, the Essence Bottle was found upon him: The Prisoner said that he did not know any thing of it, he being in drink; but could not

bring any to his reputation. The Jury found him guilty .
