3. C Of Compensation

2.-- falling to the damnifier, it puts a stop to the primary mischief.
2. It is only by Compensation that a stop is put to the primary
mischief of the Offence.

3.-- and is necessary even to the putting a stop to the secondary.
3. Without compensation a compleat stop is not put even to
the secondary mischief. By punishment indeed this mischief
is put a stop to, in all the instances where, through the influence
of the punishment, the offence is not committed; it remains, however,
in the instances where the offence is committed. Compensation
puts an end to it even in these, at least in such of them
in which it is prosecuted with effect. If theft for instance be
punished in a proper manner, theft will certainly not be so
often committed as it would be were it not punished: a man will
therefore not be so apprehensive of suffering by it as he would be
were it not punished. Still however it will very frequently be
committed: if therefore all compensation be denied to the person whose
goods are stolen, every man will still be to a considerable degree
apprehensive of being a sufferer by that offence. But if the person
whose goods happen to be stolen is sure to have the loss made
up to him, it is plain he never will be under any apprehension on the score
