It appeared that about 5 o'clock on Wednesday afternoon, Mr. George Wood of Cambridge-street saw the boy Jarvis going along the street with a suit of clothes on, which had been stolen from him on the 10th instant. He ran after the prisoner and stopped him, when the female prisoner came up and asked him what he stopped the boy for? he told her, that the clothes the boy had on were stolen ; she said :oh no they are not. I made then out of a coat which my husband had given to him" He (Mr. W.) gave both the prisoners into custody; and as he had been robbed of a great many articles, he applied to Colonel Wilson for a search warrant, which was granted; and upon its being executed, several articles, the property of Mr. Levy were found - Remanded. Ann Jarvis the last named prisoner, and Bridget Cross, were then placed at the bar, to answer a charge of robbing Mr Barnett Levy. About five months back the prisoner Cross was a servant in Mr. Levy's employ, and while she was there Mrs Levy missed a pink silk skirt; she did not know the exact time it was stolen, but was positive as to the identity of the skirt now produced; Mr Levy had also lost a quantity of gold lace, of the same quality and pattern as that now produced; Mr L. produced a piece which exactly matched, and said, that he had bought all which had arrived from England. Constable Lawless deposed to finding the above articles in Jarvis's house; he had also found a silver snuff box, and a handsome steel ornament for a lady's work table; when he went there Jarvis;s daughter told him that her godmother (Cross) had given her the shirt and lace. Elizabeth Jarvis, (about twelve years of age) deposed, that she saw the prisoner Cross bring the articles to her mother's house.

...The day after the fire, two soldiers were observed by a constable carrying a bundle into the house of a man named Thomas Jarvis, near the Soldier's Point. Suspecting that the bundles contained stolen property, (either from the fire or a bugle and flute stolen from the Barracks) a search was made my Mr. Jilks, who, however, did not succeed in finding anything that could be identified. Jarvis who is a ticket of leave holder, and his wife named Ann Jarvis, were very insolent, Mr. Jilks consequently felt annoyed and commenced strict enquiries into the history of the parties, and the result was, that he ascertained that Ann Jarvis had been illegally at large since the year 1818. She was then taken into custody, and a lengthy examination gone into; in the course of which, it was ascertained that in the year of her marriage, the female was illegally at large, but yet, through some unaccountable means, obtained the sanction of the Governor for her marriage with Jarvis, with whom she had been since living. While Ann Jarvis was in custody, a runaway prisoner of the Crown named Caroline Harrison, who had been absent two months, was apprehended in her (Jarvis's) house. Evidence was also adduced to prove, that two females residing in Jarvis's house, and supposed to be her daughters in law, where reputed prostitutes. The bench found the female guilty of disorderly conduct in being illegally at large for a space of nineteen years, and keeping a disorderly house, and sentenced her to the third class for two months, and recommended that she should be assigned at a great distance from Sydney at the expiration of her sentence, to be returned to answer for her insolence to the chief constable. Thomas Jarvis is still in custody concerning stolen property.
