CRIT. JUR. CRIM.

Of this rule Sr William Blackstone observes, and very
truly that "it can never be in all cases an adequate
"or punis permanent rule of punishment." Le Comm. 12. To shew this he
mentions several instances examples. But in these he seems to be
rather unfortunate: for in these cases of these be any in any of these instances
thing to hinder the rule we are speaking of from being
an adequate or permanent rule of punishment, at

"Forgery, or Adultery by Adultery. These are the observations
he mades for the purpose of showing proving that the several
crimes of Theft, Defamation, Forgery and Adultery

the rule in question from being and adequate or and permanent
rule when applied to them, it is not from any thing more than appearing
he says that it appears from his account of them. The instances are Theft
Defamation Forgery and Adultery. Theft he gives These
