Territorial Confinement

An instance of Territorial Confinement uncombined
with other punishment is scarcely to be met with
in our Law. Transportation The punishment of Transportation
does not quadrate with this idea. Transportation Territorial Confinement (as we shall see B.III. Ch.) being coupled with Hard labour so Laborious punishment and liable
to be converted suffered enlarged into [a kind of Banishment] Territorial
Exclusion. The exclusion of Papists from
a certain District about the Court is to be considered
rather as a measure of anticipative Prevention than
of Punishment.
⊞ To p.5.

In France instances of it are not infrequent.
A man is ordered to confine himself to his Estate,
or to quit his Estate and go and live at such
a Town. This A punishment however of this sort seldom
falls but upon a man of rank: and is generally rather
an arbitrary expression of the personal displeasures of the Sovereign,
than a settl regular punishment inflicted in the ordinary
course of Justice. The person on whom it
falls is commonly a disgraced Minister or a Member
of their Parliament, that is their Courts of Justice for something done or about to be done in the exercise
of his function:
sometimes a [whole Parliament is treated at once.]
In the chastisement of this sort falls upon a whole Parliament
at once. In these cases however, it is often
meant in the light of a measure not so much in the light of punishment as in that of anticipative
prevention
; to prevent what are called intrigues.
