alias WILLIAM SMITH , were indicted for feloniously stealing, on the 28th of November , twelve dusting brushes, value 2l. 2s. the property of Samuel Batt .
SAMUEL BATT . I am an oil and colour-man , and live in Tottenham-court-road . On the 28th of November, I lost these brushes; but was not at home at the time.

JOSEPH WINKWORTH . On the 28th of November, I was standing at my door, at 153, Howland-street, and I saw the two prisoners pass by with some dusting brushes beetween them; so I thought it proper to follow them. They went up a few steps, and then crossed between the coaches, and then they run. I followed them, and stopped them at the corner of John-street, in Howland-street; I secured one with my right hand, and the other with my left. Radley made his escape, and then come to the watch-house to see the other, when he was detained. I am positive as to both the prisoners.

RADLEY, GUILTY , aged 17.

WARDEN, GUILTY , aged 17.

Transported for Seven Years ,

Second Middlesex jury, before Mr. Recorder.
