<p>CHARLES WEBBER. I am carman to Mr.

This was his leather - these pieces had been moved about four feet from the inside of the cart to over the footboard, ready to be taken; I saw the prisoner get down, and the officer took him as he was coming to the cart again.</p>
<p>WILLIAM PERRY (Police-constable G 25.) I have a certificate (which I got at Mr. Clark's office) of the former conviction of the prisoner, for stealing two umbrellas; he was whipped and confined three months - I am the officer who took him, and know he is the man.</p>
