Report on Female Factory

Evidence Type: Newspaper Report
10 October 1843


In our fourth page will be found a report of the investigation before the Police Bench, Parramatta, on Friday last, relative to the alleged charges of conspiracy and embezzlement at the Female Factory. The case occupied the Court the whole of Saturday, and was adjourned until yesterday. We have a full report of Saturday’s proceedings, but do not deem it advisable to publish it until the whole of the evidence has been gone through. The case appeared to excite considerable interest in the township, and the Court was crowded during the whole of Saturday and yesterday.
