|Amusing non sequitur. End of CH 12

several of the officers had dined lately with their uncle, a private had been flogged, and it had actually been hinted that Colonel Forster was going to be married.
Hmm, not so amusing for the private, I bet. The way the flogging is casually slipped in between two unrelated bits of information reflects the superficiality of the younger sisters.
But is JA trying to make a point here? Is she making a social issue out of how the lower ranks are treated, and how casually people accept it?
