322. HENRY HAWKINS was indicted for stealing, on the 14th of November, 2 half-crowns, 8 shillings, and 2 sixpences, the monies of Samuel Lindley his master.

SAMUEL LINDLEY . I live in Oxford-street, and tell naptha and spirit lamps. The prisoner was my servant—on the 14th of November I gave him two half-crowns, eight shillings, and two sixpences—he was to fetch some spirit back from a person in Gracechurch-street—Mr. Jupe—he never returned—he took a can from me, and never returned—I have not received the money back.

WILLIAM JUPE . I am a naptha manufacturer. I never received this money—it was not a debt due to me—it was money to have been paid for naptha he was to have had.

HENRY GARDNER (City police-constable No. 87.) I took the prisoner on the 20th of December.

WILLIAM LAURIE . The prisoner brought a can to my father's shop in Gracechurch-street, and asked me to get it filled by Mr. Jupe, and I saw him no more.

GUILTY . Aged 34.— Confined Six Months.
