1014. FREDERICK HADLEY was indicted for a misdemeanor .

JOHN BENJAMIN HEATH , Esq. On the 31st of May , between four and five o'clock, I was walking up Holborn with a friend, and opposite Furnival's Inn I felt a motion at my pocket, and heard a voice saying,

"Your pocket has been picked, and here is the man." I turned round, and found the prisoner in custody - my friend held him while I fetched an officer.

MR. ROBERT WALTER CORDEN . I was in Holborn, and observed the prisoner and two other boys pass me, and go up to Mr. Heath; the prisoner put his hand into Mr Heath's pocket, and was in the act of drawing a handkerchief out, when I collared him, and said,

"Sir, this fellow is endeavouring to pick your pocket."


Confined Two Months .
