There are but two know u leading principles

great chart of human freedom. Here we
find all the principles of civil liberty.
;llt let none imagine that civil liberty
what may seem
ay seem lo be right iu the sight of
eyes, irrespective of the right and j
ctal state. Rut a needle s and wanton ;
restraint of natural liberty, is tyranny. i
Hence it becomes obvious that a free gov-j
eminent must rest upon a few elementary
principles; among which we find the fid- j
lowing i That government i.s instituted for
the good of the people ; that the people ;
have a right to know their public interest ;
that the people may enact laws by their:
representatives; that when enacted consti-
tutionallv, laws should be obeyed ; that he
who supports the government, "nnd respects
the laws has a right to protection ; and that
truth and virtue arc the basis nf a free gov-
eminent. Such are the principles which a
