11.
B.1. Ch.6.

When there is no specific party injured
as when the mischief of the crime consists
in alarm or danger, there will be no
specific injury to be compensated, still
if the punishment yield a profit, there
is a clear balance of good gained.

This property is possessed in
a more eminent degree by pecuniary
than by any other mode of punishment.

X. Popularity.

In the rear of all these
properties may be introduced that of
popularity, a very fleeting and indeterminate
kind of property which may belong to a
lot of punishment one moment, and be
lost by it the next. In strict This
property in strictness of speech sho ought
rather to be called absence of unpopularity
for it cannot be expected in regard to
such a matter as punishment that any
species or lot of it should be positively
acceptable and grateful to the people: it
is sufficient for the most part if they
have no decided aversion to the thoughts
of it.

The use of inserting this property
in the Catalogue is that it may serve
as a memento to the Legislator, not to
introduce without a cogent necessity
