NORAH SHEA . I lost my shift from Mr. Biggs, a market-gardener, at Barnet—I had left it on line, over my bed—I slept in a barn there (I came over from Ireland two years ago) the prisoner worked there about three months—I found the shift on her person—I never lent it to her.

MARY MACK . I work for Mr. Biggs, and sleep in the same place—I missed two caps—the policeman has them—these are mine.

ELLEN CARTY . I worked for Mr. Biggs three or four years—I slept in the same barn—I lost a bonnet, a gown, three handkerchiefs, and a waistribbon—these are mine.

MARY CONNELL . I worked for Mr. Biggs, and slept in the barn—I lost a gown-piece and apron—these are them—I never lent them to the prisoner—I only had this gown-piece from about one o'clock on Tuesday till the Wednesday night, when I lost it.

ELLEN ROWAN . I worked in the same place. I missed a gown, a petticoat, cap, and gloves—these are them—I kept them in the barn over my bed on a line—I never lent them to the prisoner.

MARGARET KIRWAN . I live on Ealing-common, near the Uxbridge-road, and keep a house to accommodate travellers. I have no sign up—the prisoner came there on Wednesday night, and brought this property—the policeman took her on the Sunday morning.

JOHN PASCOE (police-sergeant I 19.) I found some of this property of Kirwan's some on the prisoner's person, and I found a duplicate of some of it on her.

Prisoner. I asked to borrow a gown and handkerchief—I was going

to see a friend—we were always in the habit of lending to each other any thing we had.
