1490. CATHERINE GREEN and ANN JAMES were again indicted for stealing 8 yards of woollen cloth, value 3l. 15s.; 2 1/2 yards of corduroy, value 4s. 6d.; 2 3/4 yards of thibet, 1l. 3s.; 22 yards of satin, 10l.; 10 yards of silk serge, 2l. 10s.; and 1 yard of velvet, 18s.; the goods of William Lamb, the master of Green, in his dwelling-house.

MR. CLARKSON conducted the Prosecution.

WILLIAM LAMB , woollen-draper, Holborn-hill. My house is in the Liberty of Saffron-hill, Ely-rents, and Hatton-garden. What I stated before was quite true.

WILLIAM FINN (City police-constable, No. 276.) I was examined on the last charge—what I then stated was true.

GEORGE RUSSELL . What I said was true.

GEORGE RALPH SCADDING , shopman to Mr. Walker, pawnbroker. I produce 21/4 yards of kerseymere, pawned on the 7th of Aug. last, in the name of Ann James; 2 1/2 yards of corduroy, pawned on the 21st of Sept.; 11/4 yard of waistcoating, pawned on the 26th of Sept.; 3 yards of satin pawned on the 27th of Dec.; and on the 10th of Jan., 4 3/4 yards of beaver; and 11/4 yard of waistcoating; on the 13th of Jan., 1 3/4 yard of pilot-cloth; and on the 31st of Jan., a silk serge dress—I received them all from James, with the exception of the serge dress.

Cross-examined. Q. Do you know that from knowing the person of James? A. Yes—27s. was lent on the articles—I should have lent more if she had required it, but she never asked more than we could advance on them—I have known her three or four years—she pawned her own articles as well—she stated her husband was a tailor.

RICHARD FAULKNER . I am in the employ of Mr. Telfer, a pawnbroker in Whitecross-street. I produce a satin dress pawned on the 26th of Jan., by two females, who I believe to be the prisoners.

RICHARD REEVE . I am living at the Pindar of Wakefield. In Nov. I was in the service of a pawnbroker. I produce a piece of crimson velvet pawned by a man on the 20th of Nov.—I gave him this duplicate—I produce three yards of black woollen cloth, pawned on the 11th of Nov. by a man, and a coat pawned on the 18th of Dec. by a man.

WILLIAM WEST (police-constable F 106.) I produce the duplicate for the piece of crimson velvet found in Frederick Shaw's lodging, who was tried last Sessions.

WILLIAM LAMB re-examined. I think I am able to identify all these articles as mine—this satin dress was cut from a whole web of eighty yards—I lost it all.

GREEN— GUILTY . Aged 30.
