JAMES GODDARD . I am warehouseman to Mr. David Evans , of Mansion-house-street . On the 20th of February the prisoner walked into his warehouse, took this vertical jack from the crane it was on, placed it before him, and walked away; I was in the counting-house, saw him, and followed him - when he got on the pavement I took him- this is the jack; I had not known him before.

SAMUEL NEALE . I am an officer. About ten minutes past three o’clock I was sent for - Mr. Goddard and I took the prisoner.

Prisoner. I was out of employ, and throw myself on your mercy.

GUILTY . Aged 24. - Transported for Seven Years .
