THOMAS HUGHE. I am clerk to Thomas and James Holt and John Kenworthy, who are canal carriers : a chest, containing these goods, was brought from Liverpool. I saw it put on the waggon at Paddington, to go into the City, on the 13th of June, at half-past seven o’clock.

JOHN DAVIS. I am a Bow-street patrol. On the 13th of June, I and Robinson were near the end of Berner’s-street, in Oxford-street. I saw the prisoner close to the tail of the waggon; he looked towards me, and I thought saw me. I passed on, took off my great coat, and followed the waggon, and saw him go to the tail three times; and opposite the end of Monmouth-street, he took the chest out on his back, went a few paces, saw me, and threw it down, and run down Monmouth-street. I hallooed and he was stopped. I took him to the watch-house.

Cross-examined by Mr. HONE. Q. Was it dusk - A. Yes, he knew me before.

GEORGE ROBINSON. I was with Davis, and saw the prisoner following the waggon, and saw him take the chest out, he dropped it nearly at Davis’s feet. I took care of it while Davis followed.
