MEMOIR AND SPEECHES.

BY

SAMUEL SI cox.

* It is advisable to exceed in lenity rather than in severity; to banish but few rather than many:
and to leave them their estates, instead of making a vast number of confiscations. Under pretence
of avenging the republic's cause, the avengers would establish tyranny. The business is not to destroy
the rebel, but the rebellion. They onght to return as quickly as possible into the usual track of gov-
erament, in which every one is protected by the laws, and nu one injured.”—Montesquieu.
