1278. ANN FLINN , stealing 2 blankets, value 20s.; the goods of John Pedro, her master.

ELIZABETH PEDRO . My husband's name is John. The prisoner was in our service—she was taken into custody for something, after which I missed two blankets from separate places—these are them (produced)—they are mine, and were safe the day before she was taken.

Cross-examined by MR. BALLANTINE. Q. Did anybody else have access to them? A. No; we keep a lodging-house—my husband is steward of a vessel—there were three or four lodgers there—there is no other servant—the prisoner was given in charge by one of my lodgers—she was remanded for a week, and discharged—she had lived with me a fortnight.

THOMAS HOLDEN (policeman, F 144). I took the prisoner—she delivered up ten duplicates at the station—these two belong to the blankets.

WILLIAM WILDER . I am in the service of Mr. Ground, a pawnbroker; I produce a blanket, pawned on 10th June in the name of Ann Brown, for 3s.—this is the duplicate I gave.

Cross-examined. Q. Should you know the woman again? A. I have no doubt I should—I do not know the prisoner.

JOHN STUCKE . I am in the employ of Mr. Luxmore, a pawnbroker. I produce a blanket, pawned on 8th June in the name of Ann Brown—the person who took it is not here—the tickets correspond.
