HEARTLESS ROBBERY. Charles Hasman, lately porter in the service of Mr. Priest, eating-house keeper, of Charles-street, Soho- square, was charged at Marlborough-street with steal- ing a box of wearing apparel of the value of X5, the property of Caroline Hatt, a fellow-servant, the rob- bery being one of a most cruel nature. The prisoner was farther charged with stealing a truck from his employer. It appeared that the prosecutrix, Caroline Hatt, a married woman, having her husband in the hospital, had been obliged to go into service, but on Saturday last she was compelled to leave per situation at Mr. Priest's, in consequence of her being about to become a mother. She gave the prisoner, her fellow-servant, her box, containing all her wearing apparel, to take to the booking office in Oxford-street, and he started with it for that purpose, taking his employer's truck with him. The poor woman afterwards ascertained that the prisoner had never been to the booking-office. She thea gave information to the police,"and the matter was placed in the hands of Serjeant Cole, C division, who succeeded in finding the prisoner in Berwick- street, St. James's. On taxing him with the robbery, he at first said he knew nothing about it, and that he never lived at Mr. Priest's; but subsequently he said that he would tell the truth, and that he did have the thiags, and sold them for IO3., the value of them being about Serjeant Cole asked for a remand, which was granted, Mr. Knox kindly ordering the poor woman a sovereign from the poor-box. —
