1112. CHARLES HILDITCH was indicted for embezzlement.

ANN NORTH . I paid the prisoner on 2d April 6s. 6d. for Mr. Hayes, his master.

CHARLES JAMES HATES . The prisoner was in my service—it was his duty to receive money if I sent him for it, and to pay it me in the evening—he has not paid me this 6s. 6d.

Cross-examined by MR. BALLANTINE. Q. May he have lost it? A. When I asked him for it he said he had not received it; he has been with me twelve months, and was the best boy I ever had—I do not wish to hurt him; I think he has had quite sufficient punishment.

GUILTY . Aged 17.— Confined Six Days.
