property; I asked Turbitt if she could recommend me to part of a bed for the night, as it was then half-past ten o’clock; she said she had a bed, and if I would take a part of it, I was very welcome; I said I did not wish to have it without making her satisfaction; we went to a room in Bainbridge-street - the other prisoner was there; in about an hour I went to bed with Turbitt - I do not know where Clancey was; in the morning I was awoke by the opening of a window about half-past four o’clock; I got up, and heard footsteps running down stairs - there was no one in the room, but the room-door slammed too very quick; all my things were gone but the box - I heard something fall from the window - I looked, but could see nothing; I called the watchman but he did not come for some time; I have never got any of my property since.
WILLIAM BALL . I am an officer. I took the prisoners and charged them with the robbery, but they denied it.

TURBITT’s Defence. I never saw the woman till I was at Bow-street.

CLANCEY’S Defence. I was taken that day, but I had never seen the woman.

WILLIAM BALL. Clancey said before the Magistrate that she slept in the room.



Transported for Seven Years .
