* leave, he took the coach I came in, and which I had forgotten to discharge in the haste I was in.

I do further depose, that the above conversation is the substance of all that passed with Captain Berenger, which, from the circumstances attending it, was strongly impressed upon my mind : that no other person in uniform was seen by me at my house, on Monday, the 21st of February, though possibly other officers may have called (as many have done since my appointment); of this, however, I cannot speak of my own knowledge, having been almost constantly from home, arranging my private affairs. I have understood, that many persons have called under the above circumstances, and have written notes in the parlour, and others who have waited there in expectation of seeing me, and then gone away; but I most positively swear, that I never saw any person at my house resembling the description, and in the dress stated in the printed advertisement of the members of the Stock Exchange. I further aver, that I had no concern, directly or indi. rectly, in the late imposition ; and that the above is all that I know relative to any person who came to my house in uniform on the 21st day of February before alluded to,Captain Berenger wore a grey great coat, a green uniform, and a military cap.

From the manner in which my character has been attempted to be defamed, it is indispensably necessary to state, that my connection in any way with the funds arose from an impression, that in the present favourable aspect of affairs it was only necessary to hold Steck, in order to become a gainer, without prejudice to any body; that I did

so openly, considering it in no degree improper, far less dishonoura. ble; that I had no secret information of any kind ; and that had my expectation of the success of affairs been disappointed, I should have been the only sufferer.

Further I do most solemnly swear, that the whole of the Omnium on account which I possessed on the twenty-first day of February, one thousand eight bundred and fourteen, amounted to one hundred and thirty-nine thousand pounds, which I bought by Mr. Fearn (I think) on the twelfth instant, at a premium of twenty-eight and a quarter: that I did not hold on that day any other sum on account, in any other Stock, directly or indi. rectly; and that I had given orders, when it was bought, to dispose of it on a rise of one per cent, and it was actually sold on an average of twenty-nine and a half premium, though on the day of the fraud it might have been disposed of at thirty-three and an half. I further swear, that the above is the only stock which I sold of any kind on the 21st of February, except two thousand pounds in money which I had occasion for, the profit on which was about ten pounds. : Further I do solemnly depose, that I had no connection or dealing with any one, save as above-mentioned ; and that I did not at any time, directly or indirectly, by myself, or by any other, take or procure any office or apartment for any broker, or other person, for the transaction of stock affairs.

COCHRANE. Sworn at my house in Great Queen-street, Lincolo's-inn-fields, in the County of Middlesex, the 11th day of March, 1814, before me,

A. GRAHAM.
