But, rejecting' these with a becoming spirit, they prepared a col-"' lection of regulations, which deraoncirate equally their good sense and the state of theif affairs.'- p. 211. " ' The assembly of Maryland eiideavoured, with a laudable anxiety, to preserte the peace of the church ; and, though composed ch'iefly of iRo-man Catholics, it adopted that luea.snre, .wbicf; could alone prove absolutely successful. The act which it passed, ' concerning religion,* recited, ' that the enforcement of the conscience had beet', of dangerous consequence in those countries wherein it had been practised.' And it enacted, that no person believing in Jesus Ckriit shall be molested in respect of their religion, or in the free exercise thereof^ or be compelled to the belief or exercise of any other religion, agiinst their consent; so that' they he not uiifuithlul to the proprietary, or conspire not against the civil government; that persoim molesting, any other in respect of his religious tenets, shall pay treble damages to the party aggrieved, and' twenty shillinsjs to the proprietary, that those reproaching any teilh opprohrioti.t iintnes of religious distinctions shall forfeit ten shillitigs to the persons injtired.'^-p. 918. " Maryland derived a part of her population from the other .provii^ces. The Puritans, persecuted by the establisl)ed.church in Virgipia ; the Quakers, oppressed by the synod of Mas>uchusettt; Hiid Ihe Dutch,,ex)>elied from DelawarejjjioUjghtlipd found a generous protection, and entire freedom of religious worship, in the Roman Catholic colony. New York was tirsl settled by the Dutch, at the time when they had just shaken off the yoke of Spain ; when they displayed national energies and virtues of the highest order, nnd pusued a-more liberal and enlightened policy, with respect to civil liberty, religion und trade, than aijy olher people of Europe. The emigrants from Holland to North America, brought with them the characteristic industry and si.briety, the tolerant spirit and sound economies, of the commercial republic. The original pO|>ulaliuii of New Jersey was coiniinstd of Swedes and Hollamlers, and of emigrants from the northern colonies : thai of Pennsylvania needs not 19 be celebrated by a reference to the parent stale. The commonwealth, wliich the wisear.d humane associates of Penn, the laborious, frng-il, und orderly Germans, anil the intelligent, active, and t:eiieron-� Iri.sh, formed and bronchi to beauty und snl-dity, lu soshort a time, is a tnunuinent eloquent enough lu itself; a creation, upon which no Euro|iean writer ha.s looked steadily, without bursting into expres.. sions of admiration. Eveir the austere loyalty of Ciialmera is relaxed by it, and the followi,)}j emphatic testimony extorted from his convictions :- " ' As a supplement to the frame of government for Pennsylvania, there wns published a botly of laws agreed upon in England by the adventurers, which was intended as a great charter. And it does great honour to their wisdom as 8laie�ineii, to their morals as men, to iheir spirit as colonists. A. plantation reared on such a seed-plot, could not fail to grow up with rapidity, to advance fust to maturity, to at:ract the notice of the world.'-p. 643. " ' The numerous laws wtiidi were euat-ked at the first settlement of Pennsylvania, wliich do so much honotir toits good suiise, display the principles of the people; thesiC legislative regululions kept them alive long after the original spi.'-ii began to droop and expire. Had Peniisylvaniu been iem blessed by Natme, she must have become floui^sh-ing and great,- because it was a principle of her great charter,  that children should be .taught someusefnl trade, to the end that none, may be idle,-but the poor may work to iive, and the rich, if they become poor, may not want.' That coon-try must be commercial, which ctftiipeIs factors wronging their employers, to matcfe sotisfaciioii, and one-third over; which subjects not only the goods but the lands of thd debtor to the payment of debts, beciiase it is the credit g��eii by all to alt, that forms the essence of traffic. We ought naltlrjlly to exfreet internal order when a fundam^nta't law declares, ; that every thing, 'which excites the people to rudeneiis, cruelty, f and itreligion, shal^' be discouraged and severely puHislied.' And rehgioai coHtrovtrjy could not d'lsturb- her repose, when none, ackiiuw-ledging one God, and living peaceably ,io soc'kely, could be rootekted for hisopinions or his practice, or compelltjd to frequent and maintain a�y miDieBy whatsoever.  jps established as* fundamentalsi maatchiifij be attributed the rajjid improvement of tbi�-Colony, the spii^it of diligsnce, order, and economy,, forwbich thePennsylvanians have been ai all time* celebrated'."-p. 643.
