  1. LEWIS HENRY was indicted for stealing, on the 3rd of March , 1 gun, value 2l. 15s. , the goods of Richard Groom . RICHARD CHARLES GROOM . I am the son of Richard Groom , a gun-maker , of Lemon-street, Whitechapel . On the 3rd of March the prisoner came to the shop; my brother went out with him to take this gun. WILLIAM THOMAS GROOM . I was in the shop; the prisoner came in, and said he wanted to purchase a gun for a gentleman; my brother looked out two - he said if I would go with him to the gentleman in Drury-lane, he would choose one, and send back the money by me; I went with him, and in Fenchurch-street he said; very likely the gentleman might he at his father's livery stables; he took me to Underwood's stables, in Duke's-place - he took one gun off my shoulder, and went in with it, saying, if the gentlemen liked it he would bring me out the money - I waited ten minutes, and then found he had gone through the stable, and out of another door in Mitre-street. Prisoner. Q. Was not that gun fairly bought? A. No - he was a stranger to me; he came to the shop alone- he was not trusted with it, but was to bring me back the money or this gun. JOSEPH SHERWOOD . I am a pawnbroker, and live in the London-road. On the 3rd of March, about eight o'clock in the evening, the prisoner pawned the gun.(Property produced and sworn to.) Prisoner's Defence. I considered it was fairly bought- it was to be paid for by concussion caps; I returned to the gate in ten minutes, and he was gone - I had only been to Mitre-street, where my mother lives; the officer said I should not be prosecuted if I told where the gun was; and the father said he would forego proceedings if I got it back. GUILTY . Aged 22. - Transported for Seven Years .
