Theft from a Barge in Whitstable.

Thomas John Pattenden, 44, mariner, was indicted for stealing one oil-coat and a telescope, value 18s, the property of George Lissenden at Whitstable, on the 11th of April.

Mr. Barrow prosecuted.

The prosecutor stated that it was a mariner, and on the 10th of April last he had his barge in Whitstable Harbour. The coat and telescope were on his barge on the night of the 11th of April, and he missed them on the following morning the cabin having been broken into.

Edward Rigden said he heard the last witness complaining of his lost, and he then thought of his having seen the prisoner, a few days before, early in the morning, coming from the Harbour with an oil-coat and a telescope on his arm.

Harriet Goatham, wife of Henry Goatham, landlord of the "Jolly Sailor," Milton-next-Sittingbourne, said the prisoner and another man came to her house and offered the telescope for sale, and she gave him 4s. for it. He said it belonged to him, and he had had it in his use for years.

I.C. Capps went to the ship building yard at Murston and found the prison of their. He charged him with stealing an oil-skin coat and a telescope. He went to the prisoners lodging and found an oil-skin coat in a bag, which he said belonged to him.

The prisoner's statement was put in. It was to the effect that he had the things given to him by Daniel Warner.

Warner was called and denied ever being in the prisoner's company, and all the other statements made to him by him respecting his selling the coat and telescope to him, and he's going with him to the "Jolly Sailor."

The jury found the prisoner guilty, and having been previously convicted, he was sentenced to 18 months' hard labour.
