FIFTH DAY. MONDAY, JULY 8, 1822.

1047. HENRY GODFREY and JOHN JONES were indicted for stealing, on the 24th of June , one flageolet, value 5 s. , the goods of Thomas Garlick and William Garlick .

WILLIAM ROCKDALE . On Monday evening, about seven o'clock, I saw the prisoner Jones standing in Upper King-street, Bloomsbury ; it was Godfrey; I saw him go to Mr. Garlick's window, look in, and then walk away. He went to the window again, and used a knife; another boy was with him, who I do not know - I saw him trying to get the glass out of the window; they left, and then returned two or three times, and at last I saw the hands of one of them in the window. A young man who was standing in my shop saw him take something out of the window, and put it under his jacket and run away - we pursued, and took the flageolet from under his jacket; it was Godfrey. We took him into Mr. Garlick's.

Cross-examined by MR. PHILLIPS. Q. Did you not swear just now that it was Jones - A. Yes; but they have changed jackets. I am sure it was Godfrey. I only swear to him by his jacket.

HENRY HOBBS . I was with Rockdale, and saw both the prisoners go to Garlick's window two or three times, and do something with a knife or something like one; they then went to the window again, and Godfrey took something out - I saw him taken, and am sure of them both.

FRANCIS GATES . I am a constable. I was coming by, there was a mob - I went in and found Godfrey in the shop, and took him in charge. Jones was taken two or three days after.

GEORGE AVIS . I am a constable. I received information from Price the patrol - and apprehended Jones afterwards.

Cross-examined. Q. Do you know Godfrey - A. Yes; for three years. I always thought him an honest lad.

THOMAS GARLICK . I am in partnership with my brother William - the flageolet is ours.

GODFREY - GUILTY . Aged 16.

Confined One Week .

JONES - GUILTY . Aged 15.

Confined Three Months .

First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Common Sergeant.
