WILLIAM RIVETT . I am coachman to Mr. James Asher , Bloomsbury-square. On the 20th of December, I left my box coat, the property of my master, in the stable, at ten o'clock at night. The stables are in Turk's Head yard, East-street . I returned to the stables in the morning between seven and eight; the coat was gone. I value the coat at fourteen shillings.
