Mr Wing, of the firm Wing and Wardle, silk mercers, in Union-street, Bath, informed Sir. R. Birnie, that he and his partner were robbed some time ago, of silks and other goods, to a considerable amount; and they had made discoveries, which led them to believe that a part of the property was on the premises of Mr Morris, a silk-man, in extensive business, at No. 6, Pickett-street, Temple Bar. S.r R. Birnie said, that if Mr Wing was enabled to swear that the stolen property was to be found in Mr Morris's house, he was bound to grant a search warrant. - Mr Wing gave the necessary information; and a warrant being granted, Smith, a patrol, went to the house; and, on making known his business, Mr Morris immediately shewed Mr Wing a truck, containing silks and gauzes, to the value of about 120l., which Mr Wing declared to be a part of the property of which he had been robbed. The parties came to the Office with the property; and Mr Morris stated, that a short time ago, a young man, of genteel appearance, called upon him; and stated, that he had a quantity of silks &c. to dispose of, and wished him to purchase, or undertake to sell them for him. The trunk and contents now produced, were brought to his house, and he was very particular in questioning the young man as to how he came by them. He said, they were sent to him by his friends in the country to dispose of; and read part of a letter, which, he stated, came from his father. He (Mr M) however was not satisfied; and refused either to undertake to sell them, or to give them up, until some more satisfactory account was given. He heard nothing more from the young man, until Mr Wing called at his house with a letter, to this effect:- MR MORRIS - Please to have the goodness to deliver to Mr Wing the goods I left with you. His acknowledgement will be a sufficient receipt for you. "JOHN JAMES" "Bristol". This was the name he gave to him in London. He still, however, did not think proper to give them up. -. Mr Wing, being called upon, stated, that the young man, calling himself John James, but his name was John James Woods. He was in their service as a shopman, and left in November. Soon after his departure, it was discovered that they had been robbed to a large extent. They had since seen Woods, who acknowledged himself to be the plunderer; and had written the letter to Mr Morris, in order that they might recover that portion of the goods of which he had robbed them. Sir Birnie, Pray is that young man now in custody? - Mr Wing. He is not, Sir. He received a promise of mercy, as the condition of his confession. Sir R. Birnie said, he should like to ask Mr Wing, if any thing peculiar had happened to the firm? if there had been a dissolution of partnership, or any thing else? Mr Wing said, the firm was Carlile, Wardle and Co until October, when Mr Carhle retired, and he entered the firm - Being asked to explain how it was that the promise of mercy came to be made? Mr W. went on to state, that Mr Carlisle came to him a few days ago, and asked him if he had been robbed? He said, he had; and Mr Carlisle asked him, if he would promise to forgive the offender, if he had his property restored? He hesitated to make such a promise, and Mr Carlisle said, that unless that promise were given, to disclosure would be made. He (Me W.) did then make a promise, and was taken to Woods, at Bristol. Sir R. Birnie said, there was more in this case than met the eye, and he should not part with the goods. If Mr Wing chose to forget his duty to society, so far as to compromise an aggravated case of robbery, he (Sir R. Birnie) would not violate his own oath as a Magistrate, by lending his aid to it. He should have the goods sealed up; and when he was informed that the young man was in custody, he should know what further step to take. The trunk was sealed with the Office seal, and remains in proper custody; and Mr Wing said, he should proceed immediately to Bath.
