“ Where every thing muft undergo discusion," (i. e. by the people, as is the case in In-
dependent churches) “ some may be in dancer of thinking thai they have laws to make,
" instead of laws to obey. A few of the moft active spirit and readicft elocution will become
" the real movers and managers in every bufiness. Those, in short, who have most need of
“ restraint, are in danger of being led to set it at defiance, while the peaceful, and those to
“ whom Ibe government is committed nominally, are terrified and chained down by the tur.
* bulence of the reft."
Ewing on Aas xv.
“ Let it be recolleaed, it is systems, not the character either of individuals or of particular
