laws” because a knowledge of them may be attained merely by the light of reason, from the fact of their essential agreeableness with the constitution of human nature; while, on the contrary, positive or revealed laws are not founded upon the general constitution of human nature, but only upon the will of God; though in other respects such law is established upon very good reason, and procures the advantage of those to whom it is sent. The ceremonial or political laws of the Jews are of this latter class. Borden v. State, 11 Ark. 527, 44 Am. Dec. 217. Naturale est quidlibet dissolvi eo modo quo li’jatur. It is natural for a thing to be unbound in the same way in which it was bound. Jenk. Cent. 06; Broom, Max. S77.
