556. DANIEL DANIELS was indicted for feloniously stealing on the 21st day of May , one copper pot with a copper cover, value 4 s. one pewter dish, value 6 d. one pewter porringer, value 3 d. and one pair of shoes, value 6 d. the property of Joseph Solomons .


Last Saturday was a week, when I got up in the morning, I found I was robbed, we have closets in the yard, I made an alarm, and by applying to the watchman I got some of my property.


I am a watchman at Aldgate, I saw the prisoner the 22d in the morning, about half past three, with a copper in his right hand, he pushed down an alley about four yards, and dropped the pot and this dish, I pursued him, and lost sight of him in Cox's-square; six days after he was taken, I am sure it is the same man, I knew him before, I can swear to the things.

Thomas Tyler and John Hopkins confirmed the former account.

(The things deposed to.)


Transported for seven years .

Tried by the London Jury before Mr. RECORDER.
