SURREY SESSIONS - THURSDAY, JULY 22... Daniel Eldridge, George Goff, Diogenes Herring, and James Davis, were tried for stealing four gowns and a silk handkerchief from the drying- grounds of Mrs. Marsh, a laundress, of Streatham. The prosecutrix stated that on the 22d June last one of her servants hung out a quantity of clothes to dry, and while so engaged she saw the four prisoners, all of them boys, loitering in the lane near the house. Four gowns and a silk handkerchief were soon afterwards missed from the lines, and though an accurate description of the boys was given, and an immediate search made after them, they for a few days eluded detection. Some of the articles were found pledged at two different pawnbrokers, and those articles were traced to the possession of Eldridge. The only evidence against the other three prisoners were that of their having been seen in the company of Eldridge immediately before the robbery was effected. The jury found all the prisoners Guilty. Davis and Herring, two of the above prisoners, were also tried on a second indictment, for stealing a watch from the parlour of Mr. Harford, a milkman, of Church-street, Lambeth. The two prisoners went into the shop of the prosecutor on the 23d of June, and while they engaged Mrs. Harford in conversation, another of their companions, known by the name of Boots, slipped through a passage of the house into the parlour and took down the watch. Mrs. Harford saw the boy run out of the passage, and directly said he had been in the house and stolen something, on which, the others also ran away and escaped detection for a few days. The watch was never found. The Jury found the two prisoners Guilty on this indictment also, and the Court, to save them from a greater punishment. sentenced Davis. Eldridge, and Herring, to seven years transportation, on the first offence, of which they had been found guilty, and Goff, in consequence of the good character he received, to twelve months imprisonment in the House of Correction at Guildford.
