MARY JONES was indicted for stealing,of on the 7th of January,1 key,value 2d;1 knife value 2d;1 handkerchief value 8d;3 half-crowns and 2 shillings,the property of Edward Hill

EDWARD HILL.I am a baker.On the evening of the 7th of January I met the prisoner in Cow-cross;I went with her,and had some porter at a public house;we went through Red Lion-alley-I felt her hand in my pocket;I put my hand on her,and saw my money in her hand;there were three half-crowns,two shillings,a handkerchief,a knife,and a key,I had not given her any of them.

HENRY BARTLETT.I saw the prosecutor and prisoner in Red Lion-alley;I heard him say “Give me my money” and she replied,with an oath,that she had no money -he had taken the other things from her before.

I today the prisoner to the watch-house;she was intoxicated,but did not seem insensible.

JOHN HAYFORD. I was the officer on duty.I produce these two half-crowns and two shillings,which I found in the prisoners mouth,and in her hand;she resisted very much;she did not say then that it was her own money;she said so at the office the next day.

Prisoners Defence.The prosecutor said at Hatton-garden that I had the other things in my hand,but I had not;I was very much intoxicated when I met him;I had some money of my own,but I do not know how much;the officer took the money out of my bosom,and then said he took it out of my mouth -I called the watchman myself,because it was my own money.

GUILTY.Aged 20

Transported for Seven Years.
