MARY HURLEY, Theft > simple larceny, 7th May 1849.

1111. MARY HURLEY , stealing 3 cups, and other articles, value 3s.; the goods of Ellen Murphy.

ELLEN MURPHY I live in St. Sepulchre's. On 17th April I went out and left the prisoner in my room, when I came back I missed my apron off the table—I went in search of her, leaving my door locked, when I came back I found the staple cut off, and missed these four wash-leathers, three cups and saucers, a basin and mug (produced); they are mine.

Prisoner. She and I were drinking together for eight days; she took my gown and flannel-petticoat and every thing, to pawn—next morning I took

these things to get drink, and she partook of it. Witness. That is true; there I were plenty more there beside me.

DANIEL HOOAN The prisoner pawned these leathers with me.

NOT GUILTY
