Mr. Stoddart, solicitor, who conducted the prosecution, said the girl Nunn, the daughter of a respectable woman named Mary Stenson, who was married to a second husband, was dwelling at No. 29, Charlotte-street, New- road, Whitechapel. The prisoner was slaughterman to his brother, a butcher, in Charlotte-street, opposite, and he had plied the girl with drink, taken her to the Forest in his brother's cart, and after accompanyiag her to a notorious coffee and lodging-house called the Moon, in the Whitechapel-road, he effected her ruin. He also took her to Wilton's Music-hall, in Wellclose-aquare, and' after they had passed several nights together the girl returned to her mother's home, and the heartless villain her seducer boasted that he had broken her in nicely, and she would do for the pavement (sensation). Mrs. Stenson said her daughter was 14 years old on Wednesday last, and that three days after the prisoner took the girl to the Forest she tapped him on the shoulder and asked him what be meant by taking her girl to the Forest on a Sunday night? He said, I don't want you nor your daughter." She then forbade him. to take"her daughter away again; but in defiance of her expressed wishes he took the girl away.
