did not go further than Stow Hill Newport . I asked him no further
questions, but desired him to be locked up. I saw the Prisoner on the
Thursday previous to the 3rd November. I may have seen him, but I
did not notice him afterwards until he was apprehended which was
on Tuesday the 19th instant. He lives near the Independent Chapel
Tredegar
. I had not been seeking or searching his house previous
to Tuesday last. I don't know that the prisoner belongs to any Society.
The prisoner mentioned Stow Hill to me.

John Jenkins states. I am a Publican living at Newport
I know the Prisoner at the Bar
. I remember the day of the Riots
here. When the Mob, the Chartists, came to the Westgate Inn, I was
standing at Mr. Mullock's door. I saw them turning round towards
the door of the Westgate Inn, there was a man with a sword in his
hand who led the towards the front of the Westgate Inn. I heard
firing and then I ran away towards my house. I saw the Prisoner
that day, I saw him standing at my door, I believe it was about 11

o'clock, it may have been 12. I believe he had a pint of Beer at
my house, it was about 2 hours I suppose after the firing. I am
not certain as to the time, I was rather flurried. I asked him if
what he wanted down here - "is it possible that you came down along
with this mob". He said "Do you call it Mob" I believe he
said that he "did not call it Mob" I said I did and went out into
the Street. I cannot say that I saw him afterwards, I believe that
I did, I am not certain. He had nothing with him, I cannot be
positive of the dress he had on, but I am certain of the person. I had
known him for 8 or 9 years before that.

Israel Furmen sworn says. I live at Gellygros.
I saw the Prisoner at the Bar on Sunday night the 3rd November
instant. I don't know his name, but I know his face very familiar.
I saw him by Mr. Strickand's Machine. It was as I can recollect
