There is no question, but that state crimes and conspiracies often render such
rewards necessary for the dete:tion of delinquents and the security of individuals
or the state. Widely different is the case of affixing stated prices or . wages to each
conviction, as a bait to perjury, which is ever swallowed the most greedily by the
most profligate. Such was the case of the notorious Jemmy O'Brien mentioned
before. Of the like cast were two noted informers, Michael Mahaffy, a pedlar, and

Yet to such a degree had his manners been corrupted by evil communications,
and his understanding obscured by inordinate zeal for a single object, that he did
not scruple to become a broker in simony of a peculiarly discreditable kind, and
to use a bishopric as a bait to tempt a divine to perjury.” Are these the words of
truth and soberness? I rather think they are not. In the sacred name of common
sense—did Penn become a broker in simony of a peculiarly discreditable kind,

Let me say, to the credit of Macintosh, that he makes no charge against Penn in
this Oxford business. Here Mr. Macaulay is perfectly original. 5. Did Penn deal “in
simony of a particularly disreputable kind, and use a bishopric as a bait to tempt a
divine to perjury'? Mr. Macaulay continues to represent him as employed by the
court; and having, as he says, failed in his attempt to terrify the collegians into
obedience, he 'then tried a gentler tone. He had an interview with Hough, and

It is clear that a wide door will thus be open to perjuries ; and as for that Clause,
therefore, which states, that the making a false affidavit in these applications to a
Judge shall be deemed a perjury, it will be as good as useless. The fate of it,
indeed, seems to have been somewhat similar to that of the 4th Clause, which
excludes adulteresses from the benefit of the Act : like that, it seems to have been
admitted by the framer unwillingly, and only as a bait to get the rest of the Bill
swallowed.

Well, therefore, may we say, that when a government holds out as a bait, that
those who profess certain opinions shall enjoy certain privileges, it plays the part
of the tempter of old, and, like the Evil One, basely offers the good things of this
World to him who will change his worship and deny his faith. At the same time,
and as a part of this system, the increase of perjury has accompanied the
increase of hypocrisy. For legislators, plainly seeing that proselytes thus obtained
