435. BARNET EMANUEL was indicted for a misdemeanour .

MR. BOLLAND conducted the Prosecution.

JANE PIKE . I am the wife of Thomas Pike , and keep a chandler's-shop , in Cow-lane . On the 11th of March

the prisoner came and bought a herring, he offered me a sixpence, I rubbed it on my stone, and found it was a counterfeit; I looked at him, and recollected him. I asked him if he had any more silver? he said No. I said this looks suspicious, you have only one, and that is a counterfeit. My husband secured him, he snatched up the sixpence, and was going off the step - my husband brought him back.

THOMAS PIKE . My wife gave me the sixpence. I thought it bad, went into the shop, and asked the prisoner if he had any more - he said No. I put it down, and he ran out with it, I secured him, brought him back, and searched him, with the patrol's assistance, found two bad sixpences in his breeches-pocket, a bad shilling, and two more bad sixpences in his coat-pocket, one of them was the one he gave my wife. I knew it by the marks where she rubbed it. I found 2 s. 11 3/4 d. on him, and a candle, in his hat.

JOHN GILES SEWELL . I am assistant to the Solicitor of the Mint; the money is all counterfeit, and is only washed.

Prisoner's Defence. I found a paper in my pocket with them.

GUILTY . Aged 22.
