ProfelTor of Moral Philosophy, and the Law of Nature, and of Ecclesiastical History ; and Minister of the Englilh Church at U trecht. Aliquid temper ad communem utilitatem af ferent! nm. Cicero. The Firjl American Edition. THE grand principle of Equality, if right ly nnderftood, is the only basis on which universal justice, sacred order, and perfedfc freedom, can be firmly built, and permanent ly secured. The view of it exhibited in this efTay, at the fame time that it reprefles the insolence of office, the tyranny of pride, and the outrages of oppreflion ; confirms, in the most forcible manner, the necessity of subor dination, and the just demands of lawful au thority. So far indeed, from loosening the bands of society, that it maintains inviolate, every natural and every civil diftinftion, draws more closely every social tie, unites in one harmonious and justly proportioned sys tem, and brings men together on the even ground of the inherent rights of human na ture, of reciprocal obligation, and of a com mon relation to the community.
