697. HENRY WEBB , stealing 1 purse, 2s. 6d., and 6 sovereigns; the moneys of Joseph Partridge, in his dwelling-house: having been before convicted.

JOSEPH PARTRIDGE . I live in Bolton-terrace, Camden-town, in the parish of St. Pancras—it is my dwelling-house. The prisoner is my nephew—he had lived with me about three months this time—he left me of his own accord on the 25th Jan.—I did not tell him to go—I did not see him again till the 12th Feb.—while He was with me I had six sovereigns in a purse, which I kept in a teapot, in the first-floor front room—I saw it on 24th Jan.—the money was mine—I left my home on the 25th, and left the prisoner in the room; when I came back be was gone, and the purse and money—I have never seen the purse again.

EDWARD MAISHMAN (policeman, V 111.) On 11th Feb., about twenty minutes to five o'clock, the prisoner was given in custody by his brother, for stealing a purse and six sovereigns, belonging to his uncle—be begged his brother not to give him in charge, but to let some one else give him in charge—I took him—he told me he had taken it, and it was a bad job, that he went to Chatham, and it was all taken from him at a house in the Brook, and it had never done him any good.

ROBERT HITCHMAN (policeman, T 204.) I produce a certificate of the prisoner's former conviction at Clerkenwell—(read—Convicted, March, 1850, and confined Three Months)—the prisoner is the person.

GUILTY . Aged 20.— Confined Twelve Months.
