1163. GEORGE EDWARDS was indicted for stealing, on the 11th of March, 4 shillings, 2 sixpences, 30 pence, and 60 halfpence, the monies of Samuel Martin, his master.

SAMUEL MARTIN . I keep the Blue Last, in Little Bell-alley. The prisoner was in my service—I was in the habit of sending silver to the Bank to pay the soldiers on duty—on the 11th of March I sent him with 2l. in silver and copper, for which he was to bring me back two sovereigns—he did not do so—he absconded that night, and was not taken until the 18th.

Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. How much silver did you send? A. Thirty shillings and ten sixpences and 5s. in copper—not merely four shillings—I have nothing to say on the charge of his taking the four shillings and the thirty pence, &c.—I told the Grand Jury that was not the charge I had to bring against him—I know nothing about it—there must be some mistake.

THOMAS GELLATLY . I am a sergeant in the Fusileer Guards. I know nothing about this charge.

BENJAMIN RICHARDSON . I am a policeman. I took the prisoner into custody—I know nothing about this charge.
