EXTENSIVE FRAUDS ON FOREIGNERS. Louis Jordam, thirty-two, and Angelina Jordan, twenty-nine, his wife, both residing at No. 41, W hiskin-streot, Cierkenwell, and Alexander Bar the, twenty-sis, of No. 21, Ma.rtha.-terrao-e, Beresford- street, Lambeth, described as an agent, were brought before the presiding magistrate at the London Mansion- house, on remand before the Lord Mayor, thetwo former charged with conspiring with others, not in custody to obtain, and with obtaining, on the 21st alt., a Post- oflSce order, No. 88, representing 100 francs, thereby demanding V&leno Castelbini of his money, and the latter with conspiring with others not in custody in obtaining, on the 19th July last, by false represanta- tions, from the Bishop of Zimaria the sum of .£7, with intent to defraud him of the same. Mr. Wontner appeared for the prosecution, and Mr. Templeman for the prisoners Jordan.-Mr. Wontner said that he should have to ask again for a remand, but he would produce such evidence before his lordship as would show the extensive nature of the frauds that had been committed by these parties. In a box belonging to the Jordans a letter was found stating that three hundred letters had been sent out. Emily War- nicot said: I live at No. 2, New Milman-street, Pimlico, and I gave the box produced to the officer Foulger on Thursday last. The female prisoner brought the box on the same morning in a safety cab. She asked me if Mr. Aaron lived there. I said no, but he had lived there. She asked permission to leave the box, and she did so.—Cross-examined by Mr. Temple- man Mr. Aaron did live in my house for about four weeks, anfileftthewednesdayprevious to the box being left.' Susan Absolon, of 41, Whiskin-streefc, said I know the prisoners (Jordan) as Lewis- On the 4th of May they engaged a sitting-room, bed-room 'and the use of a kitchen. They remained there until the officer took them into custody. They had the box produced with them. I heard that the large box was taken away on the Tuesday before the officer (Sergeant Foulger) came and took them away. They appeared to do no busi- ness, and as they were generally at home, they took in all letters themselves. Sergeant Foulger said. I produce ab, out 400 circulars, and a list of various per- sons taken out of a directory. There are also about 400 envelopes, all addressed according to the list and ready to be sent out. I shall be able to prove that they have beentrading under the following various names:- Messrs. Dumassay and Co., 24, Blenheim-street; Rhab- bielats and Co.; Messrs. Flint and Co., 41, Whiskin- street; Messrs. Ledon and Co., 19, Col ville-place, Fitzroy- square; Christy and Co., steam. flour mills, 130, King's- road, Chelsea; Dutton and Collins, 13, Princes-street 5 Simmonds and Morton, steam flour mills; Smith and Son, 9 and 10, Little Newport-street; Gerald, SamP' son, and Co., 24, Blenheim-street; John Ramon ana Co., 18, Pitt-street, Fitzroy-sqnars;- J. B. Roger8 ami Co., 5a, Gotlington-street; J. B. Rogers and Co., Greek-street; L.Jordan, merchant, London J Parrett, and Co., 93, Westbourne-Btreet,^ Pimlico; Greenham and Co., Hall-street, City-road; Greenham and Co., 40, Caledonian-road — Maynar ((^PP°sed and Co., 40, Caledonian-road M.,Yulird It FAELPPosed proper name. In the box I found » -kxporta- tion Society," and the centre has The Council of Administration" on it. Another has Bladen wick and Co. and there were also some loose type, and several foreign directories, including £ rench, Spanish, and Italian. There were also a great number of circu- lars with the name of Mallet ana Oo. on them. A great many letters had been seat out ana about 1,000 answers had been sent, but they had not been translated yet. On a moderate calculation, I should say that from 4,000 to 5,600 foreign letters have been sent to the prisoners, some of ^rjfe~L °°3tain money. A list of advertisements that; naa appeared iu the German papers, offering salaries to agents who knew what the produce of land was, was here put in and read. They were all to be addressed to John Greenham and Co., 89, Old-straet, City-road. Sergeant Foulger con- tinned: I found this letter (produced) on the prisoner. It was addressed to a Mr. Henry, and stated that he had about 600 letters, as many as he had addresses for, and that he hoped soon to have more—Cross- examined I apprehended the prisoner at Whiskin- street, and there was another person with him.—Mr. Thomas Beard said that he had three charges against Jordan, one for obtaining money from a German gentleman to defray the expenses of making him agent for an English company; another for an attempt of a similar description, but in which the money was not paid; and the third, in which the prisoner obtained a large quantity of goods. He could not complete his case that day, and therefore he would ask for a. remand. —The prisoners were then remanded.
