CONVICT LABOUR UTILISED. [Newspaper Article] — The Telegraph, St Kilda, Prahran and South Yarra Guardian — 20 July 1867

CONVICT LABOUR UTILISED. "-What shall we. do, with our convicts ?" is a question of older date and really more difficult of solution than the cognate one of: " What shall we do with our boys ?" The latter we may make ourselves pretty easy will adjust themselves without-any flagrant violation of naturalslaws, even though we allow matters to take their own course; but !ve cannot afford to be thus quiescent wtlh respect to the former. Jocular though it was, there was a deal of philosophy in. 1Ir. O'Shanassy's answer when the boy query was once propounded in the .House, tiat we "should marry them to. our girls.' For that is undoubtedly their natural fate, and when they have thus fulfilled there mission the necessities' of their existence will urge them to such efforts as will practically silve the query as to what shall be done with them. Unfortunately, however, we cannot thus easily dispose of the criminal question. It.is con stantly cropping up before us-a stumbling block in the way o...
