The S U BJECT. H6. IX. o o 1" N one of my former Papers, I took fome Notice of o the Difference betvveen the manner of making Laws in ^ E?igLind, and that ufed in France and other Arbitrary , Countries. This will be farther very apparent to the. Reader, if lie will but look into the Style of .our A "lS of Parliament, which are all introduc'd in the fofLwing Manner; 44 j..'e it Enacted by the King's moft Excellent Majefty, by " and with the Advice and Conient of the Lords Spiritual " and Temporal, and Commons in Parliament affembled." -If they are to alter the Law in never io fmall .a Matter (as every Act of Parliament does in fome Refpect or other) yet the Prince upon the Throne never previoufry imerpoies his (ingle Authority, but leaves the Affdir to be freely debated by the two Houfes,' who confider it feveral 1 imes e'er they affent to it, and whofe joint Concurrence is necef-fary before it can be prefented to the Crown' for the Royal Sanction. Mr. Waller in a Speech to the Lords tells them, that every Bill in its Pafliige through the Legiflature, is thnce read and agreed to in the Commons-Houfe, thrice in=your Lordftiips Houfe, and then if* receives the Royal Aftent ; fo that it is like Gold feven Times purified.--Compare this now with the Manner of enacting Laws in France or Spain. - A young Monarch puffed up with Porter and Pride, perhaps in himieif weak and wicked, or entirely under the Influence of fome lewd Woman, or plotting Car dinal, fhall in five Minutes Time have a Difpntch drawn up, that fhall affect the Property of ten Million's of Peopie. Petitions and Remonftrances againll it are all in vain : So that the People never offer at them, w.ll knowing O CO vain, that they would be entirely fruitlefs. Or if any Perfon, out of a Concern for the Publick, fhould but wag his To-gue againlt fuch an Edict, away he goes either into tVifon or ^ banifhmerrt. The People are never the better for his In-terpofition, and himfelf much worfe, perhaps entirely ruined. Can any Man hefitate a Moment under which of thefe two Forms of Government he would choofe to live ? Or can we help breaking out into Raptures of Joy and Thankfulnefs to the Divine Being who has bleffed our Iliand with fo happy a Temperament of Power, and has not made it our Duty to fubmit to any Laws but what we ourfelves previoufly confent to. If the prefent Rebellion fhould prove fuccefsful (which GOD of his infinite Mercy forbid) we mult bow down our Necks-to the Arbitrary Methods aboye-mentioned. The Invafion is brought upon us by the Counfels of Paris and Madrid, fanctified by the Benediction of the Church and Court of Rome. What are we to expert from fuch Counfels, A't) V ERTISEM EN TS are taken in for this Paper, at Lloyd's Coffee-House, in Lombard-Street. No Wooden Shoes. _ No Arbitrary Power. 0 � Z. � ;
