WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15. [Newspaper Article] — Wagga Wagga Express and Murrumbidgee District Advertiser — 25 August 1866

This class of persons would not go to the Benevolent Asylum, and the only mode of providing for them was-in compalsory employment. The classes of persons the bill proposed to deal with, were persoMhagvin no lawful means of support, habitual drunkards, and street be~res. Therewas an objection to committing such persons to gaol, as vagrants and criminals ought not to be brought into association. It was proposed for the present to establish one workhouse as an experiment, and the Government had provided a suitablebuilding at Port Macquaroie for the purpose.-Mr. Cowper tlhought that under the system proposed there would exist a power of perpetual imprisonment, and that he considered agreat objection to the scheme.
