We have great Complaints from all Parts of the Kingdom, of the great Plenty of Hay and Corn, and Scarcity of Labourers to gather in the Harveft, which may be of dangerous Confequence, if the Weather mould change, and many Farmers be ruined thereby ; ^therefore,. it would be advifeable to force all ftrolling Vagrants and fturdy Beggars to work, contrary to their Inclination, and give them reafonable Wages for their Labour; and, if they will not work, to carry them to the neighbouring Juftices, who have a Right to commit them to the next Goal, and force them to hard Labour. - In China (the gfeateft and bed governed Empire in the World, where they make blind Folks work) as well as in Holland, Saxony, and many Parts of Italy, no common Beggars are to be feen, and yet in Ireland, where they can oe employed, they are a Burden to the Induftrious, and a Peft to all Human Society, livrag on the Blood and Vitals of thofe, who make ufe of their Hands for their own Support, and fpread Murder, Villainy, Theft, Diforder, and Infection, over the whole Kingdom, inftead of being ufeful Members, and fervicea-ble to their Country ; and what is worfe, they breed their fpurious Iffue up to their own horrid Vices.
