1159. MARY ENNIS was indicted for stealing, on the 5th of August , one coat, value 5 s.; one pair of stays, value 18 d.; one handkerchief, value 1 s.; one apron, value 18 d., and three pair of stockings, value 1 s. , the property of Joseph Levy .

HANNAH LEVY . I am the wife of Joseph Levy , and live in Cutler-street, Houndsditch - he is a licenced hawker . On the 5th of August, about ten o'clock in the morning, I saw the prisoner coming down stairs with these things, which she had taken off the drawers in my bedroom - she was quite a stranger. I said,

"Halloo mistress, what have you been doing up stairs?" She said she had got the wrong door. I called my brother, who took her into the kitchen; she then dropped my husband's coat. She had a bundle in her hand, containing the other things.

MOSES MEYERS . My sister-in-law called me. The prisoner said,

"Don't make a disturbance, I have got every thing in the bundle." She dropped the coat from her waist - the other things were in her handkerchief.

(Property produced and sworn to.)

GUILTY . Aged 40.

Transported for Seven Years .

London Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
