GEORGE VINCENT. I am a sweep , and live in Cross-street, Carnaby-market . On the 8th of December I went out at half-past five o'clock in the morning, and fastened up master's front cellar, where I slept; I returned about half-past six, and found the prisoner in the cellar, which was open; I gave an alarm, got a light, and found these things laying at his feet; I had left them all in a box. I gave him in charge - I knew him before, but he had no right there.

JOHN BARKER . I am a watchman. I heard the alarm, came up, and took the prisoner in the cellar; the things laid there; he said, "You have found nothing on me."(Property produced and sworn to.)

Prisoner's Defence. I met a woman, who asked me to go to order the sweeps; there was nobody there; I went in, and this young lad came.

GUILTY . Aged 20.

Confined Six Weeks .
