722. JOHN EARL was indicted for stealing, on the 17th of June , two shillings and nine-pence, the property of Samuel Beard , from his person .

SAMUEL BEARD . I was buying a basket of fish on the morning of the day of the indictment, at Billingsgate market , and I felt my pocket give a jink. I turned round directly, and saw the prisoner close to me. I went to lay hold of him, and he ran away. I pursued him, and he dropped some of the money in Dark House-lane. I lost two shillings and nine-pence in copper. On examination, I found my pocket was cut. I secured him, and gave him in custody to an officer.

THOMAS JACOB . I received charge of the prisoner; he said, he was pursuaded to do it by another boy.

GUILTY , aged 12.

Confined six months , and whipped .

London Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
