JOHN LOUIS . On Monday last, the 13th of September, about half-past five o’clock in the afternoon, I was a few doors from Camomile-street , when a young woman said I had been robbed. I looked round, and saw my watch in the prisoner’s hand. I seized him, and took it from him, and an officer came and took him.
JOHN FIELD . I heard a bustle, and went to Louis, who had the prisoner. I found the watch in his left hand.
Prisoner’s Defence. I am sorry for it; I got into bad company - this is my first offence.

INQUEST.-An inquest was held on Tuesday, last, at the Union Inn, kept by Hr. II. Webb, before Hr. C. B. Lyons, Coroner, on view of the body of on old resident of Parramatta, named Charles Hubbard.

The first witness examined was Ann Lloyd, who deposed that she was a widow, and had lived with deceased for about sixteen years as his wife.  Deceased was an upholsterer, and went to his work on Monday morning as usual, trimming a coach on his own premises, but came into the house after dinner, very ill and shivering; witness could scarcely get him into the bed room;  and all was tried that could be likely to do him good, but he died in a few minutes. He was a free man by servitude, and possessed some land and personal property; he was fifty-four years old.  Dr. Rutter deposed that he had known the deceased for upwards of twenty years, he had been habitually intemperate;  not continually, but by fits of intemperance, when he drank to considerable excess;  within the last twelve months he had been labouring under rheumatism, as an edict of disease of the heart. One day during the last week witness saw him in Phillip-street, he was staggering, and appeared to be labouring under determination of’ blood to the head.  Witness advised him to go home immediately, or he might die in the street; he said he had been working for Dr. Gwynne, who recommended him to be bled; witness bled him, and visited him the next day, when he appeared much better. From his witness’ knowledge of the deceased’s previous history, he had no doubt that death had been caused by disease of the heart.
A verdict was returned in accordance with the medical evidence.
