895. SYDNEY SMITH was indicted for stealing, on the 14th of February, 1 tub, value 1s., and 51lbs. weight of emerald green colouring, value 3l.; the goods of Henry Blundell, and others.

HENRY HALL . On the 14th of February, about seven o'clock in the evening, I was in Queen-street, Cheapside—I saw the prisoner and two

other lads loitering about the prosecutor's premises—the prisoner then went in, took up a Keg of emerald green paint, put it on his shoulder, and went on across Cheapside—I followed him till I saw a policeman—I then gave him in charge.

HENRY DUNT (City police-constable, No. 117.) The witness gave me information, and I went up to the prisoner, who had this keg on his shoulder—I asked him where he had it from—he said it was give him by a man in Cheapside, to take to the bottom of King-Street, and to wait there till he came—I asked what he was to have—he said he did not knew, and did not think he should know the man again.

JOSEPH SEDMAN . I am in the service of Mews. Henry Blundell and others. I saw this keg safe on their premises, ten minutes before I received information, and saw it on the prisoner's shoulder.

GUILTY . Aged 23.— Confined Six Months.
