Rehearsal (Newspaper) - April 28, 1808, London, Middlesex Vol. 3: THE REHEARSAL. 1. When Mr. Hoadly can lhew the Middle State, I am his Convert. 2. People given to Rebellion are more Governed by Imagination than by Reafon. 3. Mr. Hoadlfs Remark of the Ifraelits Rejecting God from being their Kjng% makes Dire&ly againft him. 4� He Quarrels the Choke of the People. They Meant ribt to be Free froifr Abfolute Monarchy. The Monarchy of 60^ Was Abfolute. 5. They defir'd only the Change of their Kjng, not of Monarchy. 6. The Manner of the Set forth by Samuel, was a Cooiparifon betwixt (3W and the Kjng> not of Monarchy and Common-wealth. And not fo Terrible as Mr. H tyri7 28. 1708. ([.) Country-man. ^OU left Mr� Hoadly ^dt time, Mafter, � to find out a S*4t* betwixt Abfolute Subjeclhn to #0-vernment, of what for8 fbever ie is, and that Lawlefs Confufion which follows the P*�f/e taking upon them to Contronl the Govern* tnent. Rihearfal. Yes, Country-man. This is the J2frf to which I have brought him. For to what Purpofe do we Doze our felres to think over AD that we can poflibly Imagin cf the Evils that may come upon us by the Male-Adminifiration of the Government, if there be no Remedy, or none but What is Worfe than the Difeafe ? This is the Point I have always Injified upon, and to which I have yet receiv'd no Anfwer from any that Defend the Caufe of the People. I wifh Mr. Hoadly may find it out for me. And if he lhew me fuch a Scheme of Government as that our Governors may be Reftraind from doing Us any Mifcbief or Injuftice, and at the fame time the Peace and Quiet of the People be Preferv'd- I am his Difdfle without more ado, I fhall never more open my Mouth in Defence of any Government, for I am fully Convinced, That while Government is Adminifter^d by the Hands of Men, ther will be Mifcarriages and Mt (lakes, and Grievances to be Complain'd of. And this he may Gall Slavery, or by wbat other Terrible Name he pleafes ; But if ther be no Remedy againft this Slavery, but by letting in that Lawlefs Confufion of the Refinance or Rebellion of the People, it is like Throwing us into the Ocean, to fave us from a Shower of Rain ? A man may make fine-fpun Orations, and lay out hh Rbetotick to faint Sla- very in fuch Colours as may Fright tlie Common People out of their Wits, and Tempt them to Arms and to Refifi the Government. But, like the Sicilians, they foon find that Slavery to be far Preferable to their Wretch* ed Freedom to Kill and Diftroy and lavage one another, If this1 jrdiceeds from[.the norance of the Orator, fee & ^wfrviftt indeed!
