penal and there
need be no
suffering, let them
be remunatory
and suffering is

If a Penal law be not broken no one
need be punished.

If remunatory and
obeyed someone must
be taxed.

Punishment also is
infinite.
Reward finite.

Punishment naturally
adapted to seize the
production of negative
services. Reward of
positive.

Punishment will not
detect the possessions
of Knowledge.

or personal qualifications
reward will.

It will tend to
develope them all

Fear on the contrary

Cases where the
punishment may
be too expensive as
1. Cases of extraordinary
skill

Cases where punishment
would be effacacious
on the contrary side.

Cases which being
meet for reward are
unmeet for punishment
in public government
are not equally so

punishment but by
reward

but not suffering

Punishment is adapted
for restraint.
Reward for excitement.

Punishment prevents
crimes
Reward produces
services

Punishment useful for
governing people in

Luxury

Punishment will not

without.
Punishment if a
sufficient reward were
given for the payment
of taxes

Domestic differs from
Political government
in this respect
