WILLIAM BUNTING. I am a ostler at Mr. Mountain's, in Wood-street. On Saturday I left my things safe in my box, and on Sunday morning they were all gone. The prisoner slept in the same room with me.

MARTHA GREEN . I keep the house where the two young men slept. I catched the prisoner on Monday, at Worship-street. He had a pair of the prosecutor's stockings on his legs. The other things were not found. The prisoner went out on Saturday morning. He only lodged there two nights.

RICHARD HUTCHINS . I am a constable. Mrs. Green gave me charge of the prisoner for robbing the lodgings. I searched him, and found these stockings upon his legs. The prosecutor swore to them.

Prosecutor. My stockings were just like them. I will not swear these are them.
