Is Wright, the broker, who is most of a man in doing anything with effect in this
matter, — that is, as a broker dealing in what the law pronounces perfectly
innocent, effecting a sale of a vessel ; — would you send him ? Mr. Cary, the

What right have you to suppose that ho intended anything else than what was
intended by the witnesses examined on the part of the Government ? If you would
not convict them, I do not see, gentlemen, how it is possible for you to convict the
accused. He stands in a like condition exactly. They bring" up the conspirators ;
they do not propose to proceed against them ; they put them upon the stand and
upon their own statement they would have no right, legally, to proceed against

Then what you say is this, that the service is administered by the Director of
Convict Prisons ? — It appeared to us that as it was a recoverable service, and
was recoverable by the police from the Director of Convict Prisons, it fell within
the Vote administered by the Director of Convict Prisons. 275. (To Mr. Foster.)
What do you say to that ? — My view is, that the charge being incurred under the
warrant of a magistrate, it would fall under the Vote for criminal prosecutions, and
should be ...

On the question of expense, I wish to ask you whether you can give any rough
estimate of the difference between building a dock in a locality where there is
convict labour, and building a dock in a locality where there is not convict labour?
–In such a dock as that of which I have put a sketch before the Committee, I
apprehend that there would be a saving of about 30,000 l. by the employment of
convict labour. 4284. How much per cent. would you save 2– About 20 per cent.
in this case; ...

Faults they may have, as you and I have ours, but they are honest men, true men
; and probably if they had had the advantages that other men have had they
would not be engaged in that business. But it is not to be taken because they are
engaged in that business that they are criminals, and that the testimony of this
man Perkins is suflicient to convict them. Why, gentlemen, not only are all these
defendants to be found guilty of crime, but the entire number, ten, are guilty of
perjury; ...

learned friend has assured you, that he has no object but that this case should be
fairly laid before you; and I am confident he would not for any consideration wish
