WILLIAM HEWITT . I am a carman . I only know that I lost the lead from off my stable in Robin Hood-yard, Leather-lane on the 12th of June.

EDWARD NADIN . I was going along Saffron-hill that evening, about a quarter past ten o'clock, I saw the prisoner standing in the passage 109. This is the sack, and the lead that he had with him, I asked him what he had got there; he said he knew nothing about it, he had one piece in his hand, and the other was standing by him. I afterwards compared the lead to the roof it fitted exactly. The prisoner when I took him had mistaken the receivers house, it was next door.

Prisoner's Defence. I know no more about the lead than a child unborn.

GUILTY , aged 20.

Confined Six Months in the House of Correction , and fined 1 s.

Second Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
