Description

Excerpt from A Self Defence: With a Refutation of Calumnies, Misrepresentations and Fallacies, Which Have Appeared in Several Public Prints, Evidently Intended to Convey False Impressions of the "Logierian Diplomatic Institution," as Now Established in England, Germany, France, Spain The scale of philological reasoning arises through innumerable steps from the almost unconscious man to the thinking man and this progression will preserve essential relations through all the grada tions of intellect - consequently, a person cannot contemplate the higher branches of a science, who has not first been initiated into the fundamental principles of it; it is the first that prepares for the second, and this once established on sentiment and intelligence, he advances in search of their secret relations and hidden ties by which all truths, even the most distant, are connected; their reciprocal de pendancies, and the proximate reason of each link demonstrate in a striking manner the incessant operations of the mind, which has been acquired by the ministry of the Senses - and the almost infinite multitude of different perceptions discover the superior elevation of man in his intellectual powers-the contracted minds of the yawn ing illiberals will always oppose the efforts of genius, and notwith standing they seldom or never read in the book of jwticejudgment or Truth, they are perfectly conversant with one text There is nothing new under the sun. These men raise barriers and obsta cles in the way of the industrious and scientific man if in their power.
