<p>SAMUEL GILES. I am a Policeman. On the 31st of May, about eight o'clock in the evening, I went to the prisoner's apartment, and in her presence found a blanket in a closet, put into a basket - this night-shirt was found in the room by a person who is not here - my brother officer and I found some duplicates on her.</p>
<p>Prisoner. I did not know what I was doing - there were seven of them dragging me about; I said I had lost a blanket and sheet myself. Witness. Her husband came in before we searched the room, and went out again - I did not know the prisoner before.</p>

When I searched the room she was in liquor, and was so violent it was as much as three or four could do to hold her - she endeavoured to keep us out of the room; when the blankets were found she appeared almost mad with rage, and said another woman in the house gave them to her to pledge - that woman was on the stairs, and denied it; she did not state this till we found the duplicates.</p>
