1041. JOHN DRAKE was again indicted for stealing, on the 11th of April, 5 pairs of half-boots, value 16s.; 13 pairs of slippers, value 26s.; and 3 pairs of shoes, value 5s.; the goods of Joseph Goulding.

HENRIETTA GOULDING . I delivered to him, in April 1834, five pairs of half-boots, thirteen pairs of ladies' shoes, and three pairs of children's, to take to Mrs. Priddle for inspection, and if and did not approve of them, to bring them back—I did not see him afterwards.

Cross-examined by MR. DOANE. Q. Did you give him these to take to Mrs. Priddle? A. Yes, with the twenty-four pairs of boots.

MARTHA PRIDDLE . The prisoner did not deliver to me the four pairs of half-boots, the thirteen pairs of ladies' slippers, and the three pairs of childrens shoes—the shoes had not been ordered by me, only the boots—he showed me some shoes, but I immediately declined taking them—he put them into his basket and took them away.

(The prisoner received a good character.)

GUILTY . Aged 21.— Confined Six Month.
