John Evans and James Evans were charged with stealing apples from the garden of William Church, at Merlin's Hill, on the 25th of August. 1 Mr Price appeared for James Evans. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. Mrs Church deposed that between eleven and half-past eleven o'clock on Sunday, the 25th of August, she saw John Evans lying on his stomach on her garden wall, with the apple tree in his hand, and taking off the apples. ¡ She looked at him for a full minute, audthen shouted out 'Thief!' I have caught you at last. She told him not to run, as she knew him, and told him also to take his time, because the wall was high and she was afraid he would fall. There was another boy there, but she could not say who he was. She could not swear to James Evans, but the boy was about his height. William Thomas, of Shut-street, deposed that he was going up Merlin's Hill between eleven and half-past eleven o'clock on Sunday morning, when he heard a rustling of the trees in Mr Church's garden. He took no notice of it, but in a minute afterwards he heard Mrs Church cali out "Thief! I have caught you at last.' He got upon Mr Roberts's wall, and saw John Evans getting off the garden wall, when his loot slipped, and he fell. The defendant got up and ran off. He was about five yards from him, and knew him perfectly. There was another boy there, but be was turning into the wood just as he saw him, and he could not teii who he was.

About half-past eleven or a. quarter to twelve she waa in Skerry Scant, when she saw John Evans running along the Horse Fair, towards the Green. There was no one with him at that time. William Church deposed that after his return from chapel on Sunday morning, he went to the garden, and saw that apples had been stripped off the tree, and a bough broken. He went into the field, and found five apples, which he believed were taken from his tree. There had been certainly 30 apples taken off tli,, tree that morning, and they were worth 6d. He had lost from 200 to 300 apples altogether in the same way. He did not wisii the defendant to be punished: all he desired was that he should not come near his garden again. that he should not come near his garden again. There being no evidence against James Evans, he was discharged. fhe other defendant said ha was not the boy who robbed the garden, asserting that he was in the Chapel at the time.
