Sayfa 29 - Council, and to all that are put in authority under her, that they may truly and indifferently minister justice, to the punishment of wickedness and vice, and to the maintenance of thy true religion and virtue. Give grace, O heavenly Father, to all Bishops and Curates, that they may both by their life and doctrine set forth thy true and lively Word, and rightly and duly administer thy holy Sacraments...
Sayfa 27 - ... fail of, or very inadequately accomplish, this last, such a system must be at once pronounced inefficacious. Could we be sure of accomplishing the reformation of every convicted criminal, at the same time making his services available to the public, yet if the method employed should be such as to deter no one from committing the offence, society could not exist under such a system. On the other hand, if the punishment denounced had no other tendency whatever but to deter, and could be completely...
Sayfa 31 - ... offered, that he would still continue to bless and prosper you. In these revivals, we have been called to mark and adore the sovereign arrangements of our divine Lord, who now, as at the beginning, distributes the influences of his Spirit according to his own will, and teaches his people, that while even Paul may plant, and Apollos water, it is God alone who giveth the increase.
Sayfa 61 - Reverend Daniel Nihil praised the separate system that, "by taking away the danger of collision [between warders and prisoners]," reduced the need for fear-inducing warders and was thus "calculated to raise up a new class of prison officers, both men and women, whose chief qualifications will be rather of a moral than of a physical order" (Prison Discipline in Its Relations to Society and Individuals [London: Hatchard, 1839], p.
Sayfa 75 - The Doctor replied as follows, — " To this, I can assure you, that so far as my observation has " gone, I am decidedly of opinion, that so far from being injurious, " solitary confinement, with labour, has an evident beneficial effect " upon the minds of the convicts. Since the prisoners have been " confined in the New County Prison, we have had a considerable " number of mania cases, but there has not been a single case, the " cause of whose insanity could not be traced to causes foreign to his...
Sayfa 69 - Such is the general industry of the prisoners, resulting from solitude, that, except in three or four instances, it has been deemed inexpedient to task them, and, so efficient a co-adjutor is solitude, that little time is required to teach the convict a trade. The first prisoner, a negro boy, of twenty years of age, brought up on a farm, made a shoe, on the fourth day after the commencement of his instruction, in the trade, which pasted with others, and was paid for by the contractor. It appears...
Sayfa 13 - Ancient poets, striving to represent the punishment of more than common atrocity, described Sisyphus as doomed in the infernal regions to roll a stone to the top of a hill, upon reaching which, it constantly fell back to the bottom, leaving him to recommence his laborious but unprofitable task. The poets have omitted to inform us by what self-acting machinery Sisyphus was constrained to this useless and unvaried toil. It was reserved for a modern age to complete this part of their image by the invention...
Sayfa 55 - Things which in another situation it would be ridiculous to notice, are here of necessity inflated into unnatural importance, and made matters of grave discussion, of formal investigation and trial— and for this plain reason, that when a multitude of bad characters are collected under the control of a few officers, they form a very combustible mass. Little matters might easily be blown up into a mighty flame, and it is therefore necessary to notice every slight ten58 Mural Defects of the Silent...
Sayfa 15 - ... trifling. They can therefore look forward with placid joy to the time of their enlargement, and proceed without apprehension to take their chance of being again arrested and sent back to the wheel. During the period of confinement, reflection is prevented by the presence of their companions ; they think little about forming resolutions of amendment ; and they carry away none of that salutary dread which a prison should properly inspire.
Sayfa 15 - Prisoners thus actively employed look happy and cheerful ; it is a general remark of strangers ; their time passes smoothly, if not merrily, along ; they have little or no care ; their daily food is provided and put into their hands ; and with plenty of air, exercise, and company, the wants of many can be but trifling.
