The case of the settlers is most grievous ; the j answer is so glaringly irrational that it j amounts to insult. Some years ago the atrocities of the convict system provoked inquiry, and the stream of transportation to the Aus- tralian colonies was arrested. The hulks and prisoners in England being thus choked with untransported convicts, the system of transportaron was renewed in full force, only it was directed exclusively to Van Diemen's Land. It was also modified by subjecting the convicts to a probationary confinement in particular places ; but the ultimate effect was, that tiom 1841 to 1844 inclusive, more than 1G.OO0 convicts hnve been poured into Van Diemen's Land. Of that number only 2.500 are females. In the debate of the Laids, last week, Lurd Stanley m&do light of the practice which thus intro...
