quantity of really useful public service much more depends upon the ass of
the applicable kinds upon the of the quantity, and by the application of the matter of that really useful
service is just as capable of being and little less apt to be prevented
as . The matter of os the matter of good – the matter of punishment

public is not more likely
to be served than by
equally arbitrary power
of punishment in the hands
of a Judge, and that for
as much as to the Judge the

is of no use but
to the purposes of
vengeance, while the

what it is applied are to the most useful that can be found occurr
that for the application of it to such real service is secured
in the most effectual arrangement are adopted and pursued measures, that the proportions in
which different quantities of it are adapted attached to different
quantities of service are such as are least calculated to.
