1431. JOHN MARSHALL and HENRY CORKER were indicted for stealing, on the 28th of July , 6 lbs. of veal, value 2 s. 6 d , the goods of William Rennett .

MARY ANN RENNETT . I am the wife of William Rennett , who keeps an eating-house in Joseph-street, Brunswick-square . On Sunday the 28th of July, my area was broken open, and this meat which hung in it stolen. I found it at the office on Monday.

SAMUEL CAYGER . I am a private watchman of Battlebridge. On Sunday the 28th of August, a little after five o'clock, the prisoners passed my box. I saw them turn up Joseph-street, and having suspicious, I called Colton, who took them half an hour after in Gray's Inn-lane, together with a third man. Marshall had something in a parcel under his arm; we stopped them both in a passage, and found the veal in the parcel - he said they found it - the prosecutor claimed it.

WILLIAM COULTON . Cayger's account is correct.

MARSHALL'S Defence. I picked it up in Pindar of Wakefield alley, in a cloth - I saw a man run down there.

CORKER'S Defence. I saw him find it.


CORKER - GUILTY . Aged 17.

Publicly Whipped and Discharged.

First Middlesex Jury, before Mr. Recorder.
