15th. It is affirmed, that there are Companies of Thieves that deal chiefly in Horfes, who have eftablifh'd a Correfpondence in many remote Parts of this Kingdom, and fo trade from one to another, that it is very common to steal Horses, and ride them so far in one Night, that the Owner can fcarce ever recover them; they find Horfes are easier ftolen than any other fort of Cattle; when they are far off, they commonly fell them in the publick Fairs, as the Law directs; by thofe Means, many honeft Farmers and trading Perfons are utterly ruin'd, and undone; and it is found by Experience, that the Laws already made against HorseStealing, are not fufficient to prevent it, therefore it is hoped, fome of thofe galloping Jockies will have the honour of the firft Experiment of this Law.

16th. As to the Female Felons it will be a fevere Mortification to think that their Hufbands, Lovers, or Friends may come under this Punishment, befides the old Ways of Hanging, Whipping, Tranfporting, or burning them in the Hand may continue till fome other Expedient be found out, and if those that are order'd to be transported to America, were oblig'd to ferve for a longer Term of Years, it wou'd make the Expence of Transportation more eafy, and the Punishment, more dreadful.

17th. Some are of Opinion that this Experiment will be well apply'd in cooling the fiery Heat of those that are guilty of Rape, or Sodomy.

18th. It is computed that less than five hundred Examples of this Kind, which are about fifteen in every County, will have fuch Influence upon the Kingdom, that in a fhort Time our Judges, and Juries will have much less Business upon their Hands: but it is fear'd the Clerks of the Crown, the Sub-Sheriffs, and others about the Bar, who live chiefly by the Tranfgreffions of the People, will be confiderable Lofers if this Project takes Effect, and that fome of them will plead against the paffing of this Law, because it is of our own Manu

Manufacture, and no Precedent for it from abroad, and there are many other Reasons to be offer'd on th 'Subject which are referv'd for another Time.
