1241. GEORGE EARLE was indicted for stealing, on the 7th of May, 4 iron chairs, value 2s. 6d.; and I hook, value 6d.; the goods of Hugh M'Intosh.

JOHN PASCOE (police-sergeant T 19.) On the night of the 7th of May, about eleven o'clock, I was near the railroad at Drayton-green, Ealing—I saw the prisoner on the railroad—he had with him four iron chairs and a hook—I took him into custody—he said be hoped I should be as easy as I could with him; he was a poor unfortunate fellow, and he got the iron from the railroad.

JOHN CLUNAS . I am employed by Mr. Hugh M'Intosh, the contractor for the rail-road. I have examined the iron produced—it is Mr. M'Intosh's—I had the care of it—it is made on purpose for us.

Prisoner's Defence. As I was walking I kicked against this—the serjeant met me, and asked me what I had got, and I told him—I had not a halfpenny in my possession.

GUILTY. Aged 52.—Recommended to mercy by the Jury .— Confined One Month.
