From education, as the leading cause,
The public character its color draws ;
Thence the prevailing manners take their cast,
Extravhgant or sober, loose or chaste, cowris.
The safety of a republic is based on the virtue
of the people Good constitutions and whole
some laws can have no salutary effect, or at most,
: not for :iny length of time, unless there is virtue
enough in the great body of the people to carry
them into execution. And when laws for the
-conservation of public morals,- individual riphts
and properly, are few in any state, under what
ever forms of government, it is an indubitable
evidence of the happiness of such a state, and
of the virtue and morality of the people. But
wherever we cee laws multiplied for the. preven
tion of crimes, wherever we find numerous pe
iial.laws loading tne statute books, we may at
once conclude that such a government is rotten
M the foundations, and that the morals of the
people, to say no worse, are deplorable. And
should we be asked what form of,. government
would best suit a people generally corrupt, we
migm, without any nesnauon, answer a detftottc.
