I believe the signs you are looking for are stated in the final act, when Hale tells Danforth, "...there are orphans wandering from house to house; abandoned cattle bellow on the highroads, the stink of rotting crops hangs everywhere, and no man knows when the harlots' cry will end his life...and you wonder yet if rebellion's spoke?  Better you should marvel how they do not burn your province!"
