195. JAMES FRENCH and HENRY MOUNTAIN were indicted for stealing, on the 28th of November , 6 lbs. of pork, value 5s. , the goods of William Raper .

MR. PHILLIPS conducted the prosecution.

WILLIAM RAPER. I am a pork-butcher , and live in Titchbourne-street. French was in my employ for three years. On the 28th of November I placed Punn to watch the premises; Mountain was an ostler at an inn.

WILLIAM PUNN . I watched on the stairs on the 28th of November; soon after my brother-in-law went out to market that morning, I saw French open the door, look out, close the door again, and then go down to where we keep the pork; he came up with something in a bag, put it on the counter, and opened the door; Mountain came in, took the bag, and said to him, "Go to the door, and see that all is right;" he did so, and said, "It is all right - go on;" Mountain then went out - I cannot say what was in the bag.
