2315. ANN MARNEY was indicted for stealing, on the 21st of September, 5 sovereigns and 3 half-crowns, the monies of Isaac Wilson.

ISAAC WILSON . I belong to the barque Nautilus— I am a Rossuil Finn. I went to bed with the prisoner on the 21st of September—I had five sovereigns in one pocket, and three half-crowns in the other—In the morning the policeman came to me, and I had not a halfpenny—I had a piece of paper in my pocket—this is it—(looking at it)—I am sure the prisoner is the woman I went to bed with.

Prisoner. Q. Did you not give me the money to sleep with you the whole voyage? A. I gave her 5s. not this money.

JAMES MANN (police-constable K 239.) I went to Mr. Warkminster's, and found the prisoner and another woman—I opened the prisoner's hand, and found one sovereign and three half-crowns—she said her brother gave her three sovereigns, and ten shillings the day before—I went to Blue-gate-fields, and found the prosecutor asleep—he said he had been robbed of five sovereigns and three half-crowns.

HARMAN WARKMINSTER . I keep a coffee-shop at Shadwell. The prisoner came to my shop at half-past five o'clock on the 22nd of September—she had four or five sovereigns in her hand—I told the policeman of it.

MARY DOUGLAS . I searched the prisoner at the station-house, and found two sovereigns in her clothes—she said, "You keep one, and give me the other."

SARAH M'CUE . I keep the house No. 8, Blue-gate-fields. About eleven o'clock on this night the prisoner came with the man, and asked for a bed—they went up stairs, and a little while afterwards she came down with a shilling, and asked me to lend her a dish—she said she had had nothing to eat all night—she said nothing about the money.

Prisoner. I went to the coffee-shop for refreshment, and the man gave me in charge—I did not say my brother gave it me—I said it was man.

JAMES MANN re-examined. I found this bit of paper on the floor of the house where I found the prosecutor asleep—he said it had been in his pocket with the money.

GUILTY . Aged 22.— Confined Six Months.
