SARAH RUSSELL . I am the wife of Thomas Russell . The prisoner lodged at our house, in Westminster , for nine days - she had only part of a bed; it was not mentioned whether it was to be taken by the night or not - she went away without giving me notice, she owed something; when she had been gone six or seven days I missed a sheet and a silk shawl.

WALTER TANNANT . I am a pawnbroker, in the employ of Mr. Rochford. I have a sheet; I cannot say who pawned it.

ISAAC CUTHBERTSON . I took the prisoner, and found eleven duplicates on her, one for this sheet, and this shawl I found at her sister’s, No. 20, Great Barlow-street.(Property produced and sworn to.)
