Rationale of Reward
§.1. Scale of Ranks

Only in so far as applicable in the character of a mass of rewards to the production of official service
does the institution belong to the present purpose.
But, as described by the Imperial founder, no relation
does it bear to reward, or to service Grades she found supposed regarded as meritorious. Of this ladder of
ambition with its fourteen
rounds, the model
is that which the
exemplified in
her army

established in her army: grades much the same
as those in other armies. But in the two cases, there is in respect
a of the demand for such gradations, there is little parallelism. Independently of every such
idea as that of remuneration – aggregates one within another,
the result of a series of decompositions performed upon the whole and carried
on till the smallest aggregate includes no more
than five or six individuals, is essential to military
service: every variety, in the number of the individuals acting in a body being on different
occasions necessary for every variety of purposes.
In it's general description, the purpose for which this
decomposibility and recompensibility are necessary,
is that of making detachments: the all-comprehending
aggregate being at all times in all it's parts moveable.
Exceptions excepted in a number not worth noticing
excepted in the Civil service, every body's station is fixt:
no such detachments are made. No determinate appropriate object,
accordingly has the civil ladder of rank with its 14 rounds
in it: for as in the Military, this is the number on
the Civil scale.

In the particular here in question,
namely in the having nothing to do with individual service,
that is to say with services rendered, or expected to be rendered, on individual occasions by the individuals thus disposed of,
the institution agrees with the system of ranks, as established
in England early in the 15th Century of Henry
the eighth: Statute of precedency. 31. Hen. 8. Ch. 10.
