NORFOLK ISLAND] HAMPTON, John, and others

Descripción William Clowes and Son for HMSO, February, London, 1849. Tall quarto, with a large folding handcoloured map of penal works in Van Diemen's Land, recent green boards with front wrapper bound in. A rich and diverse source of primary information on convict management, especially relating to alleged abuses on Norfolk Island under Commandant John Price. Following the collapse of the enlightened administration of Alexander Maconochie the island returned to old disciplinary practices, and by the late 1840s disturbing reports were circulating about unusual, and sometimes sadistic, behaviour by the guards.In this report the Reverend Bragly Naylor laments the acute shortage of labour available in the Australian colonies, providing examples of wastage and missed opportunities resulting from exorbitant wages. He asserts magnificent crops have rotted in the ground because the cost of reaping them is simply too high. Furthermore, the Reverend Naylor warns of dire moral consequences when wastrels and malcontents can command extortionate wages: 'The capitalist and the employer are the insulted drudges of the persons they are nevertheless forced at any rate to employ; while the exorbitant wages paid lead to idleness and dissipation, and there is no present help for it.' Having rejected coolie labour and German migrants, Naylor proposes a returned to convict labour in a modified form: here only selected convicts of good character are deemed worthy of transportation. This choice group would receive advanced trade education and form an efficient workforce, in contrast to the prevailing use of convicts for unskilled manual labour.Of significant interest is a detailed report by Comptroller-General John Hampton on the state of Norfolk Island under Commandant John Price. For some months leaked reports from wardens on Norfolk Island provided newspapers with detailed accounts of strange and sadistic practices occurring under Price's command. The application of discipline by other inmates and the introduction of the gag system to curb 'insolent, disgusting, and blasphemous language' raised widespread concerns. Hampton was clearly of the old guard, with a dim view of the men sent to Norfolk Island 'many of whom are more ignorant and debased than savages'. In this report he vigorously defends Price from any 'tyrannical abuse of power' and 'cruel and brutal punishments'. However, when Hampton returned to Norfolk Island in 1852 he revised his estimation of Price and condemned his management. Nº de ref. de la librería 4106432

Descripción William Clowes and Sons for HMSO, February, London, 1849. Tall quarto, with a large folding plate; overall a good copy in understated modern polished half calf, front wrapper bound in at rear. The continuation of the previous report: this Parliamentary report on the state of convict management was printed shortly before the demise of transportation to New South Wales (1850) and Van Diemen's Land (1852). The report includes a remarkable large folding hand-coloured plate detailing a portable shelter for 'detached working parties' in Van Diemen's Land. This structure of wooden slats and canvas sheeting could be folded down and loaded to a horse-drawn cart, that is depicted.The report primarily consists of correspondence between the Governor's of the Australian Colonies and Earl Grey, the British Secretary of State. Given the relatively large number of convicts transported to Van Diemen's Land in the 1840s a good portion of the material comprises despatches from Lieutenant-Governor Sir William Denison. By the time of the publication of this report in 1849, transportation to Western Australia remained the only viable long-term option. Importantly, the proposal was welcomed by the business community, landowners and other agricultural interests who urgently required convict labour to alleviate poor economic conditions. Under the title 'Formation of a Penal Establishment' the report contains resolutions of a public meeting of about 200 persons 'who are all strong advocates, under existing circumstances, for making this a penal settlement.'The mood in the eastern states was markedly different. New South Wales was on the verge of abolition and public sentiment was strongly expressed. Although the despatches from Tasmania reflect the system in demise, the large number of remaining convicts ensured a continuation of institutions such as the Port Arthur penitentiary and existing practices such as the government road gangs.Although the vast majority of the report is devoted to the Australian colonies, despatches from New Zealand, Gibraltar and Bermuda are of incidental interest. Some gatherings browned, some leaves thumbed and a few chipped at the fore-edge. Nº de ref. de la librería 4106460
