Police - Mansion House. Before Alderman Newnham - Edward Edwards a lad about 18 years old, was brought up for examination, charged with privately stealing in the shop of Mr. Wilson a jeweller in Houndsitch, a gold broach set with pearls, a gold ring set in like manner, and some other articles of jewellery. Mr. Wilson stated, that the Prisoner came to his shop on Friday evening last, and desired to see some fancy articles. He selected a number, to the value of 14pounds, but contrived to steal several articles, which were immediately missed; and the Prosecutor, on searching the Prisoners, found the articles ,but not one penny of money about him; he immediately sent for a constable, and gave him in charge; and it was alleged by some person, that the constable, by direction of the Prosecutor had carried the Prisoner on board the tender. The Prosecutor expressed a wish not to prosecute the unfortunate youth, in mere tenderness to the feelings of his father, who was an honest industrious man; and he rather wished him to be sent to serve his country; but denied having given any directions to send him to the tender. The constable denied that he had taken him there. Alderman Newnham deprecated the idea of sending such a person to disgrace his Majesty's service, as the only service for which such persons were adapted was Botany Bay. He observed, that the Prisoner was tried at the last Old Bailey Session for a similar offence,; and as he seemed now quite incorrigible no course remained but to send him again for trial; and, in case of convictions he would be sent out of the country.
