At the ANNIVERSARY MEETING of the Society, held at Freemasons' Hall, Great Queen Street, on Monday the 2d of June, 1823,
H. R. H. the DUKE OF GLOUCESTER, Patron,
in the Chair,
The following RESOLUTIONS were unanimously agreed to:
It was moved by the Right Rev. the Lord Bishop of CHESTER, and seconded by Lord CALTHORPE
1.-That the substance of the Report which has been now read, with such additions thereto as may be considered advisable, be printed and circulated, under the direction of the Committee.
It was moved by Earl GROSVENOR, and seconded by Sir JAMES MACKINTOSH, M.P.
2.-That this Meeting derives sincere gratification from the increasing prosperity and usefulness of this Institution, from the public interest which continues to prevail for the improvement of Prison Discipline, and from the measures now in progress for the erection of new and the amendment of old Prisons. That, notwithstanding, however, the visible progress of amelioration, it is yet painful to reflect that a considerable number of prisons, especially those under local jurisdiction, are devoid of classification and employment, and of that discipline which can alone correct and reclaim the offender,-in some cases confounding in one common association the several distinctions of character and crime,-and are otherwise in such a state as to call imperiously for the interference of the Legislature. That it is, therefore, with anxious solicitude this Meeting looks forward to the completion of those measures which are now before Parliament for the consolidation and amendment of prison laws;—convinced that legislative enactments, founded on wise principles, are indispensable, before the prisons of this Kingdom can be regulated by a system that will at once deter the criminal, yet promote his reformation, and add to the public welfare and security by the prevention of crime.
It was moved by WILLIAM WILBERFORCE, Esq. M.P. and seconded by Sir Thomas DYKE ACLAND, Bart. M.P.
3.-That the respectful thanks of this Meeting be presented to the magistracy throughout the kingdom, to whom the Improvement of Prison Discipline has been so essentially indebted, for the cordial co-operation which they have evinced in promoting the designs of this Institution.
It was moved by the Right Hon. J. M. BARRY, M.P. and seconded by W. CABUS Wilson, Esq. M.P.
4.-That the situation of a criminal youth disposed to abandon his vicious courses, but discharged from prison without money, character, or friends, is one which has strong claims as well on the interests as on the compassion of the public. That the numerous boys thus circumstanced, who, on their liberation from the gaols of the Metropolis, have received relief from the Prison Discipline Society, and the success of its endeavours to reform, entitle the Institution to the warm support of the enlightened and benevolent: and that it is, therefore, with deep regret this Meeting learns that the Committee have, during the past year, been compelled to deny assistance to many whom timely relief might have rescued from guilt and misery.
It was moved by the Right Hon. Sir GEORGE Rose, Bart. M.P. and seconded by the Rev. Thomas LLOYD, of Hertford
5.-That the grateful thanks of this Meeting be presented to His Royal Highness the Duke of GLOUCESTER, for the benefit which the Institution has derived from his illustrious patronage, the obliging readiness with which he has participated in the labours of the Committee, and for the urbanity with which he has presided on the present occasion.
