927. GEORGE HOLMES was indicted for stealing, on the 12th of February, 6 pewter-pots, value 10s., the goods of John Dunsford.

JOHN DUNSFORD . I keep the Prince Regent, in Salmon's-lane, Lime-house. About half-past nine o'clock, on the morning of the 12th of February, I was called by Bryan—I ran out, and saw the prisoner running down the lane—he had these four quart and two pint pots in his apron—I ran after him, for half or a quarter of a mile, came up to him, and said they were mine, and he ought to be ashamed of himself for taking them from my barrow, at the front of my house—my boy had left them while be knocked at two or three other doors—I gave the prisoner in charge.

PETER SEWELL BRYAN . I was going down the lane, and saw the prisoner fill his apron with pots from the barrow, and run past me.

Prisoner. After I took the pots, that man lost sight of me.

GUILTY . Aged 32.— Confined Three Months.
