BENJAMIN AARONS . I live in James-street, Covent-garden. I keep a Birmingham and Sheffield warehouse—the prisoner was my shopman—I know this razor-case is mine—(looking at it)—I have a private mark on it, and the razors are the tame at I sell—this corkscrew hat also a mark, and I know it—the prisoner never told anything in my shop—he had a right to sell, and so had my wife and my ton—they are not here.

CHARLES SUCKERMORE DRAFIR . I keep a tobacco shop—the prisoner came to my shop about three weeks ago—I bought some things—he said I might as well have bought them of hit matter—I was in want of some spittoons, and gave him the order—the next day he brought these spittoons and this corkscrew, and I bought them—he told me whose service he was in.

EDWARD PARFBTT . I live in Ranelagh-street—I received this case of razors from the prisoner—he said he was allowed to have them at cost-price—I was to pay him half a crown for them, but I had not, paid for them

NATHAN JARVIS (police-constable E 41.) I apprehended the prisoner.

(The prisoner received a good character.)
