. That the government of a people is too weak, may be the fault of those betrusted with its administration. It may be owing to their weakness; or to their indolence, or slowness in doing business; or to their excessive lenity; or to their not being of a virtuous character, or not paying a due attention to the strict regularity of their own lives. These particulars, suffer me cursorily to go over.
When the rulers of a land are children; whether in understanding, or in firmness and stability of mind, we are not certainly to expect that the reins of government will be guided with discretion, and held with sufficient force. To govern well, at least in the higher and more difficult offices, considerable theoretic knowledge, some experience, and more than common natural powers, are altogether necessary. And so is that degree of courage and inflexibility, which will enable a man to maintain his post, and to persevere in what appears to him the plain path of duty; unmoved by noisy oppositionundaunted by popular clamorundismayed by imminent danger.
To support an efficient government, rulers must likewise be men of vigilance and activity.He that ruleth, says an apostle,*with diligence. And of Jeroboam it was said,*Solomon, seeing the young man that he was industrious, he made him ruler over all the charge of the house of Joseph. A commonwealth, under the superintendency of indolent men, will resemble the field of the slothful which we read of, that was all grown over with thorns; the face of it covered with nettles, and the stone wall thereof broken down. Or, though rulers be not slothful in business; they may be so slow in transacting it, and in bringing any thing to a termination, as very much to lower the tone, and defeat the salutary designs, of civil government. When courts of justice are so dilatory in their decisions, and such endless evasions, and reviews, are admitted; that a man had better lose almost any debt or damage, than commence a legal process for a recovery, the protection of law must be lamentably weak.
