Properties Analogy

If instead of burning scorching be employed,
the punishment may be made of any
definite intensity. For this purpose all
that is necessary is to appoint by law the
part of the body designed to be exposed to the
action of the fire, the intensity of the flame,
& the time during which it is to be applied:
the operation being accompanied or not with
such symbols as may tend to augment the
terror of the punishment. Thus the apparent
evil of the punishment may be heightened or
must as possible place at the head of the
law by which it is prescribed a delineation
of the apparatus & the aggonizing effects produced
by it.

Inundation is an offence less common than
incendiarism: in some countries it is altogether
unexampled; it can only be perpetrated in countries
that are intersected by water confined by artificial
banks. In point of mischief, it is susceptible
of every degree of aggravation from the highest to the lowest.
If the offence consist merely in inundation, in
effect it amount amounts only to a simple destruction
of property. It is from its occasioning the only when destruction
of life that this offence become of it assumes such a
degree of atrocity malignity as to call for a severer
punishment.
