JOHN JONES . The prisoner was my servant. On the 28th of September I missed some leather—I went to his house, and found it there—this is it—it was missed on the Saturday week before he was taken.

Prisoner. I had it in my mother's house for about four months—I bought it is Newport-market for 1s., 3d., Witness. I had it, cut out, in my hands on the Saturday week before, and the prisoner was going out, and I missed it.

THOMAS HODGKINS (police-constable L 81)I took the prisoner for stealing a hat-box pattern, and in going along he said he did not steal that, but four pieces of leather—I went to his house, and he said "That is the leather I stole".

Prisoner. I said I would show him where my mother lived, Witness. You told me in Blackfriars-road; that you stole four pieces of leather.

Prisoner. I bought this leather of Mr. Shoveller, and gave 1s. 3d., for it—I intended to make it into a hat-cover, and still it.

(property produced and sworn to.)

GUILTY . Aged 13.— Confined Six Months; One Week Solitary.
