425. WILLIAM CHATFIELD and JOHN ALLEN were indicted for stealing, on the 12th of February , a pillow, value 18 d. , the goods of Benjamin Lamb .

BENJAMIN LAMB . I am a broker , and live in Brick-lane, St. Luke's . On the 12th of February, I lost a pillow, my wife sent for me; I went in pursuit round Old-street, and caught Allen with it in his apron - and as I returned from Worship-street, I took Chatfield. Cox spoke to them both.

HARRIET COX . I am ten years old, and live next door to Lamb, in Brick-lane, Old-street. I was going for some milk, between six and seven o'clock in the afternoon, it was nearly dark. I saw Chatfield get on a step, and take the pillow - Allen stood waiting at the corner of Mitchell-street, two doors off; they both went down there together. I told Mrs. Lamb of it, and at night Mr. Lamb took one of them. I saw them at Worship-street next morning, and am sure of them.
