JOHN BEDFORD . I am a groom to Mr. MacNamara, in the Adelphi .

Q. Did you lose a pair of overalls - A. Yes, on the 4th of February; they were my own property; I lost them out of the stable. At half past eight o'clock at night, I locked the stable door and hung the key up in its usual place; about eight o'clock the next morning I went to the stable, I missed them out of the bin.

Q. Did you ever find the things again - A. Yes; I saw the prisoner at Marlborough street office, and the overalls and the waistcoat.

GEORGE GILL . On the 4th of February, the prisoner was brought in the watchhouse by two patrols, with this property.

ROBERT REID . I am a patrol. On Sunday morning, the 5th of February, past three o'clock, we saw the prisoner in Grosvenor market; the property was tied up in a horse cloth; we took him and the bundle to the watchhouse.

The property produced and identified.

Prisoner's Defence. I used to work in the yard; I went into a house in Drury lane, the man that was with me, gave me these things to carry; when the watchman took me up he ran away; I told them so at the watchhouse; I was very much in liquor at the time.

GUILTY , aged 21.

Confined One Year in the House of Correction , and fined One Shilling .

First Middlesex jury, before Mr. Baron Wood.
