MARY BARNES. I am the wife of Charles Barnes ; my daughter Maria is eight years old; I put a necklace on her neck on the 1st of May; I afterwards saw her without it.

MARIA BARNES. I am the daughter of Charles Barnes. On the 1st of May I went out with Mrs. Lathan, to look at the chimney-sweepers; I had a necklace on -Baker snatched it off my neck, and gave it to the other prisoner, who ran away towards the market; I laid hold of Baker’s coat, and some persons came to my assistance.

JOHN MEARS. I am the son of William Mears . I was in Bath-street on the 1st of May, looking at the sweepers; I saw Baker snatch the necklace off Maria Barnes ’ neck; he turned his hand round, and gave it to the other prisoner; they both ran through the mob, but Baker was stopped; Maria Barnes said, “You thief, give me my necklace;” he said, “I have not seen it;” I said, “Yes, you have, I saw you.”

McGee. I was in the country at the time; this witness’s word is not to be taken - he is nothing but a bad character. Witness. I am sure it was you; I know you perfectly well.

HENRY BERESFORD (Police-serjeant G 8). I was at the station when Baker was brought in; I found nothing on him - the other prisoner was described, and I took him a week afterwards.
