About half past nine o'clock on the morning of Saturday last the four prisoners entered her house together, and remained there till evening, off and on. David Byrne asked her to take care of a watch for him. Witness took the watch, and then he asked her to lend him 10s. She did so. The watch now produced is the one she received from the prisoner.
