MARY MORGAN . I am the wife of John Morgan - he keeps an eating-house in Panton-street . On Saturday last a gentleman who dined at our house, told me he saw a person go up stairs and come down again; I sent my servant out after the prisoner, and she brought her back with this piece of huckaback, which had been in my second floor room.

WILLIAM DAVIS . I am a shopman to Messrs. Sewell and Cross. I sold this piece of huckaback to Mr. Morgan on the 15th of May; I know it perfectly well - it has our private mark on it.

MARIA RAYSON . I am servant to Mrs. Morgan. I went after the prisoner; she was about three doors off: I brought her back and saw this piece of huckaback under her shawl - I asked where she had been; she said to inquire for a person.

FREDERICK BLACKWELL . I am a constable. I took the prisoner, and produce the property.(Property produced and sworn to.)

The prisoner put in a written defence, stating that she was intoxicated, and perfectly ignorant of what had occurred.
