JAMES HORNE . I am a plumber, and live at Trafalgar-row, Greenwich. On 16th Oct., I was at work at a house, at New-cross, Deptford—I hung my coat on a door—I continued to work during the day, and when going in the evening, I missed my coat—this pocket book (looking at it) was in the pocket of my coat.

CALEB TAYLOR . I am a surgeon. On 16th Oct., I was in a house in Deptford-road, which belongs to me—Mr. Horne was there at work for me—I saw the prisoner there about 3 o'clock in the afternoon—I was in the garden—he asked me the rent of the houses—I showed him over them—he left, and made an appointment for the next day—he said he was a butler, and gave his master's name as Mr. Smee, of some terrace—he promised to come the next day, but he did not.

JOSEPH GREEN (policeman, R 313). I took the prisoner on 20th Oct—I found this book in his bedroom.

JOSEPH DRY . I am a pawnbroker. I produce this coat; it was pawned with me on 16th Oct., by a man in the name of Joseph Smee; I do not recognise the prisoner.
