1848 Treason Trial

South Australian Friday 5 January 1849 p.4
The Government have commenced a sweeping prosecution against the English Chartists. True bills have been found against 46 persons in Manchester, 14 at Liverpool, 54 at Ashton under-Lyne, and several had escaped to America. Cuffey, the "Nigger" leader, and husband of the celebrated Chartist washerwoman," was arrested in London upon a charge of conspiracy to depose the Queen.

South Australian Register Saturday 13 January 1849 p.2
On Saturday, September 30th, four of the most deeply implicated Chartists (William Dowling, William Lacey, Thomas Fay, and William Cuffey) were found guilty at the Central Criminal Court, and sentenced to transportation for life.

The Argus Prosecution.
[Quoting from the Times]
"There is no more certain principle in journalism than this—that on all occasions, and at all times, the most accurate report possible, of whatever of importance is passing in any quarter of the globe, should unhesitatingly be laid before the public. There must  be no doctored reports, no speeches, with the stings taken out for fear a rose-leaf or so in Downing street should be ruffled. It will not do to suppress a fact here, and soften down a phrase there. The rolling Alexandrines of Dr McHale, the stereotyped forms of invective adapted to the use of Conciliation-hall, the flatulent denunciations of Mr. Earnest Jones, must all be given perfect and entire. We can assure Lord Brougham that he shall be reported, and that Lord Campbell shall be reported. The Duke of Wellington, Mr Cuffey, Sir Robert Inglis, Mr. Mitchell, Lord John Russell, and Mr Feargus O'Connor, no matter what it is that any of them may say, so it be of public interest, it shall appear in our columns, all prosecutions to the contrary notwithstanding . This is the only sound policy, and any attempt of lawyers to interfere
with the press in the discharge of their legitimate functions would only recoil upon the country.—
Despite of Lord Brougham's warning, we shall, therefore, take the liberty to pursue our usual course."

Cuffey the Chartist in Tasmania
... Space will not permit us to give the humorous contributors to the general harmony. The comic songs of Mr William Cuffey must not, however, be forgotten; their rich and exquisite drollery being such as would create a laugh under the ribs of death.

[MG – There is a remarkable relationship between the reports above. Since there are no other reports of a Mr Cappy in Tasmanian newspapers it is more than likely that his name was misspelt in the Tasmanian Daily News and that whoever forwarded the page or clipping to the Maidstone Gazette in England alerted the editor there to the mistaken spelling in the original report. Cuff who often sang glee songs at Chartist celebrations in England was also known amongst his many friends and associates in Tasmania for his humour and singing prowess.]

SIR, I was glad to observe this morning that the case of William Cuffey has been mentioned in both Houses: It is a great shame that whilst Frost, the Monmouthshire maurais sugie, the mischief creator, and others,  have received their free pardons--not to say one word about others ten thousand times more culpable, on whom Her Majesty has been pleased to bestow her clemency,--poor Cuffey should be forgotten. I am a friend to equal justice, and therefore make these remarks, in the hope they may be  useful to the man whose name I mention, believing him to be one deserving kind consideration, and at any rate fair play in the game of life.

A VOICE FROM THE DUSTHOLE.—The People's Paper publishes a letter from Mr. Cuffey, dated Hobart Town, 1st February. He says :—" I daresay my Chartist friends think it strange I have never written to them, but that I will not do while in bondage. Mr. Frost will tell you why. My best respects to him when you see him. Yes, still in bondage, so many months after we see accounts of Smith O'Brien, Frost, and others, being safe at home. Perhaps our old friend Mr. Duncombe will put a question in the ' House' to Mr. Labouchere on that subject ? Tell my Chartist brethren who do not 'faint by the way' to struggle on, for here, in the very dusthole of the empire, as it is sometimes called,
we have a ten-pound franchise, the ballot, no property qualification, and equal electoral districts. Huzzah ! My friend can tell you how admirably it works."—Morning Star.

MR. DISRAELI AT MANCHESTER
Mr. Disraeli told his hearers that he remembered a day when no woman could leave her house in London, and cannon was placed on Westminster Bridge. Many of us are quite old enough to remember that day, and also to remember that an old Tory alarmist filled the streets with soldiers; that the 10th of April became a joke; that women and children went in and out without fear ; and that nearly the only martyr was poor old Cuffey.


Popular agitation in Britain

The Brisbane Courier Wednesday 10 January 1872 p.2
popular agitation in Great Britain is becoming more tolerated as an acknowledged power, and as an admitted right on the part of the people. If we compare the manner in which it was attempted to "stamp out" the Chartist agitation of 1848, with the passive way in which large public gatherings "some of them of open revolutionary tendency" are now permitted in the metropolis of the empire. http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article1328971

Herald (SA) Saturday 29 November 1902 p.1
CHARTISM AND ITS LEADERS. CHIEFLY FROM PERSONAL RECOLLECTIONS. CHAPTER IV. FERGUS O'CONNOR.
...
Press and Senate declared, that the proceedings of the 10th of April had stamped out chartism, and influence had been brought to bear to continue the prosecutions. Men were arrested and classed as convicts, some of whom died in prison of fever and semi-starvation ; others, like Cuffey, Lacey, and May, were sent out of the country and never heard of again. To be connected with the agitation was enough to procure an arrest. No man apparently was safe. What did the Chartists aim at ? Chiefly manhood suffrage. They played a self-sacrificing game, and were defeated. It would have been
strange indeed if the result had been otherwise, when it is considered what a powerful military force had been arrayed against them, and that even the reformed Parliament had no sympathy with the
condition of the working classes.

In the trial of the Eureka Stockade diggers the Attorney General explained "Agitation sometimes directed its efforts against some tax or charge which was obnoxious to many ; but to levy war to obtain the alteration of a law, was high treason. The insurrection by men under the guidance of Frost, against the turnpike imposts on roads was a modern instance of the committal of high treason committed by men under similar circumstances to the present."
