JOHN LUTWYCHE. I am a leather-seller , No. 4, Skinner-street. On the 29th of April, between seven and eight o'clock, I lost my handkerchief; I was passing up Doughty-street ; I was walking very fast. I heard somebody behind me, and some person seemed as though he was pulling my coat; I instantly turned round, and caught the prisoner; he had almost pulled my handkerchief out; it was not quite out. I felt a pull at the handkerchief; I turned round; the prisoner dropped down. There was another man; he ran away.
