JOHN BUNTING . I live in East-road, and am a fruiterer. On the 28th of March I missed a tub and three dozen and a half of oysters from out-side, just under my window—I went out, and saw the prisoner running off with it on his head—I followed him, pushed him into the butcher's shop, and kept him till the policeman came.

WILLIAM FITZGERALD (police-constable N 255.) I took the prisoner with this tub of oysters.

GUILTY . * Aged 31.— Confined Six Months.
