Edward Scott . The prisoner came into my house and called for some beer; there was a quart pot standing by him; I went to draw the beer; when I came up a man told me the prisoner had taken a quart pot and gone away with it; I pursued him, and found upon him two pint pots and my own quart pot.

The prisoner said nothing in his defence, but called two people who gave him a good character.
