732. MILES M'CABE and DANIEL CRANE were again indicted for stealing, on the 5th of March , one tablecloth, value 5 s. , the goods of Robert Beattie .

ANN BEATTIE . I am the wife of Robert Beattie , who lives at No. 1, Pratt-street, Camden-town . On the 5th of March, about half-past three o'clock in the afternoon, I lost this table-cloth out of the garden at the back of the house, which is fenced by railing four feet high; I saw it safe ten minutes before. About three weeks after, the officer brought it - the prisoners were in custody.

THOMAS WADMORE . I am a pawnbroker, and live in Tottenham-court-road with my brother. On the 8th of March, the table-cloth was pledged with me by Mary Ann Wilson , who was examined in the last case.

JOHN DAVIS . Mary Ann Wilson took me to the shop where the table-cloth was pledged, after the prisoners were taken up.

ROBERT BEATTIE . I was coming out of my house a little after three o'clock in the afternoon, and saw a young man inside my garden railing; one or two of the railings were broken - I made him come out - the linen was hanging up to dry. There was another man standing by the railing - they both went away. I do not know them.
