THOMAS HOLT . I am shopman to Richard Hodge and Henry Lowman , linendrapers , of Argyle House, Regent-street . On the evening of the 6th of February, about six o'clock, I was standing in the shop, about three yards from the door, and saw a piece of worsted stuff drawn off a pile, which stood within three feet of the door. I run to the door, and saw the prisoner running with something under his arm. I pursued about a hundred yards - he dropped it, and I secured him without losing sight of him. The stuff was picked up and returned to me.

THOMAS GOODLUCK . I am a waiter at the Castle Tavern. I heard a cry of Stop thief! and saw the prisoner running, and Holt following him. I ran and stopped him.

(Property produced and sworn to.)
