ANTHONY THATCHER. I am a bottle-merchant , and live in Red Lion-yard, Old Cavendish-street . The prisoner was in my employ; I looked through a hole in the staircase on the 19th of November, and saw him put these phials into his pocket - they had been in a bin near the door; he then left the warehouse - I ran down, and called him back; I found thirteen phials on him - he said he hoped I would not be hard with him; he had been there four or five months - we have four other servants; the prisoner gave me a reference, but I did not attend to it.

JAMES SELBY , I was sent for and took the prisoner; these are the phials.

GUILTY . Aged 26. - Confined One Month .
