THOMAS PITMAN, who was described as a barman, was re-examined on the charge of breaking and entering the dwelling-house at 36, Ingersole-road, Uxbridge-road. In {sic} appeared that on the afternoon of the day in question Mr. W.O. Bartlett, the son of the occupier, was alone in the house lying on the bed when he heard the striking of a match downstairs. He went to the landing and saw a man coming up. He called out, "Who's there?" The man ran out followed by Mr. Bartlett, who spoke to a constable. The prisoner was seen running with another man, who escaped. The prisoner stopped, took off his overcoat, and returned carrying it on his arm. He was then taken into custody, when he stated that the constable had made a mistake. Mr. Plowden committed the prisoner for trial, and allowed bail.
