But those who ftek after truth, wiP easily find, that there dan be no fach thing to the wndd at the rebellion of a nation again# its own nugiftrafes, andthat rwbellioa to not always evil.

When a sown or province had bees subdued by the Roman*, and brooght under their domtoiav* if they violated their Earth after thn fetstemem of peace, and in vaded their asaftm who had /pared them, they were find to rebel. Bet if had been mor* abfusd to apply that word to the peo ple that rob up agatod rhe decemviri, kings or other megiftram, than to the Parthians or any Of those nations who had no depen dence upon thorns alltbecireumftances that should make a rebetoon, were want ing, ton m»d implying a fapertority to them agbnft whom it is, as Well as the breach of* an eftabliftfed peace. Busttoougbevury private onn finely taken, be fubjeet to the commands of the magif smtoi the whole body of the people is not so । for he ia by and for the people, and the pmpte is neither by nor for him. The o bedienoe due to Mm from private men is grounded upon, and measured by the gene ral law; and'that law regarding the wet fare of the people, cannot set up ihe interest of one or a few men against the public. Fhe whole body therefore of a nation can not be tied to any other obedience than is confident with the commengood, ac cording to their own Judgment: And hav ihg never been subdued or brought to terms of peace with their magistrates, they cannot be said to revolt or rebel again# them, to whom they owe no more than seems good to themselves, and who are nothing of or by themselves, more than other men? * • 4 *• Again, the thing figntfied by rebeUiofl is not always evil * for though every sub dued nation must acknowledge a superiority in tbofe who have subdued rheas, and re bellion does imply a breach r.f she peace, yet that superiority is not infinites the peace m«y be broken upon just grounds, and it may be neither a crime nor infamy lo do it. The Privernates bad been more than once fub* deed by the Ream n> and bad as often re* i belled Their city was at last taken by Plautius the c< as J, after their leader Vitru ' vius and great numbeta of their fenaie and I people had been killed ; being reduced, to a low condition,they feat ambafLdors toßome to desire peace; where when a fenster ask ed them what punifbment they deferved* • one of them answered, u The fame which M they deserve who think themfelvci wor •• thy of liberty/’ The confui .then de manded, what kind of peace might be expected from them, if the punifomeat “ Ihould be remitted The ambaffodor answered, “ Ii the terms you give be good, . “ the peace will be observed by m foithfuL ly aad perpetually; if bad* it will soon “ be broken.” And though feme were offended with the ferocity of the answer; yet the best part of the senate approved it as u worthy of a men and a freeman;’* and canfeffing that no man or nation would con tinue under an uneasy condition longer than they were compelled by forte, laid, •* they “ only were fit to be made Romans, wbn “ thought nothing valuable but liberty.’* Upon which they Were ail made citiiona of Rome, and obtained wbatfoever they had defiied; “ 1 know act how thio matter caw be carried to a greater height ; for if It were poffiblej that a people refilling opprefion, ■Wjvmdiating their own liberty, could commit a crime, and incur either gpsk or infamy, the Priveruetes did, who had been often subdued, and often pardoned j bsst e ven to the judgment of conquercrs whom they had offended, the refoluttoa they profeffed of ftandtog to no agreement imposed upon them by neceility, was *o counted the highest teuimony of fueb a vim tue as rendered them worthy to be admit* ted into a society and equality with them fclves, who were the njofl brave and vista* ous people of the world. “ But if the patience of a conquered people may have limits, and they who will not bear opprefiion from tbofe who had spared their lives, may deserve praise and reward from their conquerets, it would be madness to think, that any nation can be obliged to bear whatsoever their own ma gistrates think fit to do against them. This may fecm strange to those who talkfo much of conquests made by kings; immunities, liberties and privileges granted to nations; oaths of allegiance taken, and wonderful benefits conferred upon them. But having already said as much aa is needful concern ing conquests, and that the rtugiftrata who has nothing except what is given to only difoenfe out of the public flock such franchifes and privileges as he has received for the reward of fer vices done to (be coun try, and encouragement of virtue, 1 sh all * present keep myfelf to the two last points “ Allegiance fignifies no more (as the words ad lagtm declare) (han such an obe dience as (he law requires. But as (be law can require nothing from (he whole people, who are matters of it, allegiance can only relate to particulars, and not to (he whole. No oath can bind any other than those who take it, and that only in the true sense and meaning of it: But fmgJe men only take this oath, and therefore Angle men are only ob liged to keep it: The body of a people nei ther does, nor can perform any fueb ad: Agreements and coatrads have been made; as the tribe of Judah, and the rest of Kuti afterward, made a covenant with David, upon which they made him King; but no wife man can think, that the nation did thereby make themselves the creatutes of their own creature. “ The sense aifo of an oath ooght to be considered. No man can by an oath be ob liged to any thing beyond, or comrwy te the true meaning of it: Private men who fwcar obedience ad legem, (wear no obedu [Numb. 98.
