But few persons can conceive of the enormous magnitude of the National debt of great Britain at the present time and although celebrated financiers have Long since mathematically demonstrated that this debt will Ultima tely prove the ruin of the government and thu country yet the government Stock is so extensively diffused among All classes of the citizens that this very National debt has probably tended to preserve the present form of government unchanged More thin he excellence of the Laws or Lac Wisdom of the rulers. The National debt of great Britain was commenced during the reign of William and Mary when during a quot War with France and being hard pressed for Money. Parliament passed an act in 1602 imposing certain duties upon Beer ale other liquors for securing certain re commences and advantages to such persons As should voluntarily Advance the sum of �1,000,000 towards carrying on the War with France. In the body of tie act it was also stated that whoever should Advance the above sum should out of the rate of duties imposed by the act receive a certain a Teres or annual payment for the use of the Money so advanced. This Mode of raising Money was found to be so convenient that it was afterwards resorted to by the government in emergency.

The Deer driven by the hounds and hmm. D in by surrounding rocks flew to a narrow pass the Only outlet this could find. Here the Clivel Iliad placed one of his men to guard the Deer from passing hut the animals rushed with such , that the poor forester could not withstand them. In of the moment Maclean threatened the Man with instant death but this punishment was commit. D to a whipping or scourging in the face of his clan which in those Feudal times was considered a degrading punishment fit Only for the lowest of denials and the worst of crimes. The Clansman burned with anger and he rushed Forward plucked the tender infant the heir of , from the hands of the nurse and bounding to the rocks in a moment stood on an almost inaccessible Cliff pro Jei ting Over tie water. The screams of the agonize d Mother and chief at the awful jeopardy in which their Only child was placed May be easily conceived. Maclea i implored the Man to give Back his son and expressed his deep contrition for the degradation he had in a moment of excitement inflicted on his Clansman. The other replied that the Only condition on which he would consent to the restitution was that Maclean should Bare his Back to the Tord and be publicly scourged As he had been in despair the chief consented saying he would submit to any thing if his child were but restored. To the grief and astonishment of the clan Maclean bore this insult and when it Wasco up eted begged that the Clansman might return from his perilous situation with the Yogi us chief. The Man regarded him with a smile of Demoniac revenge and lifting High the child a the air plunged with him into the abyss below.
