1080. THOMAS GOWLLAND was indicted for stealing 1 pair of boots, value 7s., the goods of Charles Batten.

CHARLES BATTEN . I am horse-keeper at the White Hart, at Little Stanmore. On the 24th of April I took off my boots and put them in the tap-room under the settle—I went for them next morning, and could not find them—these are them.

HENRY HALL (police-constable S 264.) I was on duty at the Hide, between twelve and one o'clock on the 25th of April, and saw the prisoner with one of these boots in each hand—I asked where he got them, he said

he had bought them for 1s. along the road, in the fore part of the day—but I had met him between six and seven o'clockt and then he had no boot—he afterwards said he bought them ten minutes before he saw me.

SARAH BAYS . My husband keeps the White Hart, at Stanmore. On the 25th of April I saw the horsekeeper's boots beside the settle, in the tap-room—I saw the prisoner there, between eight and nine o'clock, sitting down close by the boots—in about half an hour he was gone, but I did not miss the boots till the next morning.

GUILTY . Aged 23.— Confined Six Months.
