ISAAC NOY. I live at Old Brentford. On 18th July I went into my room to get my coat, and it was gone—it had been safe the evening before—I went to market, and when I came back I missed a gun—I gave information, and afterwards went with the officer to Hughes’s, and found the coat at the door—this is my coat—the prisoner had been in my employ till the Monday previous—he knew where I kept my keys—the gun I have not seen.
WILLIAM HUGHES . On the evening of 17th July, about ten minutes before ten o’clock, I was at my door—the prisoner brought this great coat to me—he said, “It is my own, you have no occasion to be afraid; it was given me by my brother, a cab -driver”—my wife bought the coat of him.
EDWARD FIELDER (policeman, T 157). I took the prisoner, and went with Noy, and found the coat.

Prisoner’s Defence. I had nowhere to lie, and I took this coat and sold it; I know nothing of the gun.
JOHN BALLARD . I produce a certificate of the prisoner’s conviction at Oxford—(read—Convicted March, 1849, and confined three months)—I was at the trial—he is the person.
