he pointed to some Men that were standing in Groups at a Quarry
the other side of the River from his house - He did not say any thing
with reference to those men I saw men at the Quarry - He said there
was a number of men - that was all - I should think there was from
150 to 200 men standing at the Quarry.

writing purporting to be a petition to the Commons of the United Kingdom
of Great Britain and Ireland marked M is in the handwriting of the
Prisoner - The writing and figures upon the Card now produced marked
F is also in the handwriting of the Prisoner.

Thomas Gunter Sworn Says I live at Caerleon I am an Innkeeper I
know the Prisoner Samuel Etheridge I remember Monday the 4th Novr
instant I called upon the Prisoner at his house that morning - he keeps a
Beer House about a mile out of Newport - Walter Williams & Charles
Rogers were with me - it was perhaps 10 or 1/2 past 10 o'Clock - we
started from Caerleon after we heard the firing - Caerleon is about 2
miles from the prisoner's house - Charles Rogers lives sometimes at Caerleon
and sometimes in Newport - I saw the Prisoner that morning I asked him
how the row got on and I began to enquire what mischief the Chartists
had done or something of that sort I asked him if the Chartists were
not beaten - he said they were not - I asked him what they were doing there
if they were not beaten, there was a lot of people standing by an old
Road near a Quarry he pointed in the direction where the men were,
he said those people was waiting for another party to come down he said
they was determined to put Newport on fire that night I heard him say
that a party of them was gone to pull Mr Lewis Edwards' house down - I
was there about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour - I did not see any
thing of him after that day.
