JOSHUA FREDERICK CLEMENTS . I am an inspector of the Police; I have a handkerchief and collar which I got from the prisoner’s box - she had been brought to our station-house for being drunk; she owned it was her box, and sent the key which opened it - I have since sent to Newgate the gown and handkerchief she now has on.(Property produced and sworn to.)
