Convict woman incarcerated at the Parramatta Female Factory.
CATHERINE MARMON, free, was, as usual, found drunk in the streets on Saturday night last. KATE expressed to the Bench her great abhorrence of the factory—begged hard that CAPT. ROSSI would not dispose of her in that way, but would give her another trial. His worship, induced by her protestations of future good behaviour, waived the factory, and sentence her to sojourn three hours in the stocks. This was a perfect God’s-send to the spirit-loving KATE, and she exclaimed, in all the warmth of her gratitude, “Good luck to ye, your Honor,” then made a low curtsey, and retired.
