Excerpt from Temple Bar: The City Golgotha; A Narrative of the Historical Occurrences of a Criminal Character Associated With the Present Bar Temple Bar, the only survivor of the City bars and gates, has, on many occasions, obtained no inconsiderable share of public attention. Placed between the liberties of the cities of London and Westminster, it sets to each a limit. It stands alone - a monument of bygone days, an enduring record of the power of the Crown, and of the passions of the people - a memorial of a period when, to insure the security of the throne, the terrors of the law were alone relied upon, and humanity and compassion for human imperfections constituted no part of the criminal jurisprudence of the country. Replete as this every-day scene is with reminiscences of the past, we have considered that half an hour might not be unprofitably employed in recalling some of those historical occurrences with which it has been associated.
