This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1888 edition. Excerpt: ...be always held sacred and honourable, so long as there is reason and religion in the world. I might mention many other corruptions common to both parties, which naturally flow from this source; and might easily show, upon a full display of them, that this clamour which pro tends to be raised for the safety of religion, has almost worn out the very appearance of it; and rendered us not only the most divided, but the most immoral people upon the face of the earth. When our nation is overflowed with such a deluge of impiety, it must be a great pleasure to find any expedient take place, that has a tendency to recover it out of so dismal a condition. This is one great reason why an honest man may rejoice to see an act so near taking effect, for making elections of members to serve in parliament less frequent. I find myself prevented by other writings (which have considered the act now depending in this particular light) from expatiating upon this subject. I shall only mention two short pieces which A have been just now reading, under the following titles, ' Arguments about the alteration of the triennial elections of Par'ament: ' and, ' The alteration in the triennial act considered.' The reasons for this la, as it is necessary for settling his Majesty in his throne; for xtinguishing the spirit of rebellion; for procuring foreign alliawtes; and other advantages of the like nature; carry a great wr'ght with them. But I am particularly pleased with it, as it mar compose our unnatural feuds and animosities, revive an hones'.spirit of industry in the nation, and cut ofi frequent occasions of brutal rage and intemperance. In short, as it will make us not only a more safe, a more flourishing, and a more happy, but.'so a more virtuous people. - Pretends..… (mere)
