Henry Chappell sworn states - I am a Police Officer of
Newport - I apprehended the prisoner yesterday morning at his house at
Malpass - I at the same time searched his house - I found the Gun
now produced in the prisoner's house - I was looking about the house and
the Prisoner told me he had a Gun up stairs and that I must
take care as it was loaded - I then went up stairs and there found
the Gun now produced - there was a Cap on the Gun when I found it -
The Gun was all that I found - The Gun was not concealed it was
standing in an upright position by the side of the Bed - the charge that
was then in the Gun has been since taken out of it by a Soldier -
there are two scratches on the stock of the Gun by which I know it
