LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL.

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1843.

The House met at three o’clock.

Mr. MURRAY…dwelt on the absurdity of proposing a charge for the supply of Temperance newspapers for the use of men at road parties, which reminded him of a similar piece of folly which was formerly perpetrated by some philanthropic persons, who supplied the ladies of the Parramatta Factory with Tracts, which were of course used for the purpose of curling the hair of those whose heads and hearts they were intended to convert. (Laughter).
