954. ELIZA POWELL was again indicted for stealing, on the 14th of February, 1 sheet, value 3s.; 1 tablecloth, value 1s.; and 3 napkins, value 5s.; the goods of Richard Tappin Claridge.

RICHARD TAPPIN CLARIDGE . Among other things, I lost a sheet, tablecloth, and three napkins—these now produced are mine—they are all marked with my name on them—I have no doubt about them.

CAROLINE STEVENS . The prisoner brought me one duplicate for all these things, and asked me to keep it for her—I said she had better keep it herself—she said, "Oh, no, they are things I don't want; when my quarter is out, I shall take them out again"—I was not present when the duplicate was found in my box—I am sure the duplicate produced is the same.

Prisoner. Q. Where did I give it you? A. In the room—I left it on the table—she took it up, and we went out—she gave it me again in Ormond-street—Emma West was present.

EMMA WEST . I saw the prisoner slip the duplicate into Stevens's hand in the street.

JOAN NYMAN . I am a pawnbroker, in Guildford-street, Grosvenor-square—I have a sheet, table-cloth and napkin, pawned on the 14th of February, in the name of Ann Evans, No. 4, King-street—I could not swear who by.

JOHN TEDMAN . I found the duplicate in this box.
