      JOHN ALLSUP . I am a glass and china-manufacturer, and live in St. Paul's Church-yard. The prisoner, John Wolfe Walklate, was my carman and packer for four or five months -I have lost these salts and other articles -they were found at different pawnbrokers-some have my private marks on them.
      Cross-examined by MR. DOANE. Q. Has the decanter you have in your hand a private mark on it? A. Yes, and these salts also, which proves I had not sold them.
      - RUSSELL. I am a pawnbroker. On the 31st of July, the prisoner Eliza Walklate, offered these decanters to pledge-I questioned her about them-she said they were her own, and her husband was in the trade-I called the officer.
      Cross-examined. Q. Did not she say she had been sent by her husband, and say where her husband would be found? A. Not in my presence.
      COURT. Q. Was any property pawned by the man? A. I have a pair of salts pawned by a man on the 31st of May, in the name of John Walklate, for 2s.-I do not know by whom.
      GEORGE KING (police-constable H 111.) I went and searched the box of John Wolfe Walklate-he was in the room, and stated that he lived there-I found these two duplicates in a drawer in the room-he said they were his own property.
      JAMES MASTERS HOWIE . I am a pawnbroker. I produce some decanters and a pair of salts pawned by the female prisoner-the duplicates found at the prisoners' lodgings are what I gave her.
      MR. ALLSUP. I never saw the female prisoner on my premises but once, when I gave her a part of his wages.
