HOUGH pleaded GUILTY . Aged 17.— Confined Eight Months.

JOHN LOVELOCK . I live in Vauxhall-road. On Saturday night, before I went before the Magistrate, about twenty minutes before ten o'clock, I was sitting near my own house—I saw the prisoners going in a direction from Vauxhall-bridge towards Pimlico—I then saw them come back—I saw them go near Mr. Thompson's shop, and Hill picked up this caddy from the board outside, and put it under his coat—he then walked up and down the road—I told a policeman.

ALEXANDER HUDDY (policeman, B 199). Lovelock spoke to me—I went to White-street, and saw the two prisoners together—Hill said, "Here comes the policeman—I took Hough, with this caddy on his arm—he said, "I did not steal it"

JOHN HAYNES THOMPSON . This is my caddy; it was safe on a table at my door about an hour before it was taken.

Hill's Defence. I was going to Chelsea, and the policeman took me; I had nothing to do with the caddy.

EDMUND BUCKLEY (policeman B 131). I produce a certificate of Hill's conviction—(read—Convicted, Nov., 1849, and confined six months)—I was present—he is the man.
