Richard Simms was indicted for feloniously stealing two Stears , the Goods of Henry Burton of St. Leonard , on the 2d of June last. It appear'd, that the Prosecutor lost his Stears out of his Grounds, which were driven by the Prisoner to Rosemary-lane, and there stop'd, and afterwards own'd by the Prosecutor. The Fact being plain, and the Prisoner saying nothing for himself, the Jury found him Guilty .
