544. HENRY ALFRED MESNER was indicted for stealing, on the 24th of December, 1 watch, value 3l.; 1 key, value 1s.; and 5 sovereigns; the property of Thomas Winmill, from his person.

MR. DOANE conducted the Prosecution.

THOMAS WINMILL . I keep a chandler's-shop. On the 24th of December, I went to a public-house with the prisoner—I had known him six months—we drank together—I saw Rosell, who I knew, by coming to my house with the prisoner—I know his person well—before I fell asleep I had a watch safe and five sovereigns, besides some silver—the prisoner and Rosell were with me when I fell asleep—when I awoke I missed my watch and money—Rosell was just leaving the room—the prisoner was pretending to be asleep, but I am perfectly satisfied he was not—I shook him, and he rose up—I said I had been robbed—he said he knew nothing about it, and he had been robbed himself—he lost 3s. 6d. out of his pocket.
