Nve assert that .1 Varice is one of the great sources of these evils. Of All the passions it is perhaps the most seductive As it is the most productive of erroneous opinions and unjust actions. Experience proves it. Let us for instance be consulted on in affair to which we Are perfect strangers and which by no Means concerns our interest we shall then View the matter in its proper Light and As it really is. We of course will not be influenced by prejudice or passion and the opinion which we form and express if it lie not infallible will of least be suggested by our love for truth. Let our interests be involved in the consideration of the subject and we shall then he inclined to turn the balance in our own favour. It is then that ingenuity will seek its numerous pretexts which imagination conjures up As so Many solid and convincing reasons. This Well known fact has Given Rise to the popular Maxim that no Man ran be a judge in Hie Oten ease. On suck an occasion we readily see the reality even on its faintest appearance and Are eventually lulled into an illusion which would be pardonable in As much As it would be unconscious had it Mui Mcd from u purer source than personal interest. Why arc there so Many suits in the Virtous courts of Law Why so Many causes instituted or advocated by dishonesty 1 we Are aware that there arc delicate questions upon which the most Learned and upright arc occasionally divided hut if avarice had not blindfolded the interested parties by far the greatest part of those unhappy feuds and litigation which Are the Eurse and the upsetting of families would Hunt Long Sinco disappeared. Justice will in vain be established by a logical solid and Luminous discussion every one will be convinced except him with whom you join Issue evidence is lost upon him so fur As he is concerned. Self interest like a deceptive in Irma Magu Idos our right and diminishes that of our neigh tour. , As it were identities himself with his property and believes that he exists in the very objects he enjoys he cannot he detached from them except but what he conceives to he n cruel a killing so aeration. Lie accordingly de discs a thousand pretexts to retain them and it is thus to a certain extent that interest seems to falsify the impression of equity and truth which nature Lias stamped upon the soul. Pride is another enemy which is highly dangerous to truth. Mail naturally loves himself. This affection which is not Only lawful but necessary rapidly degenerates into excess. To it we can Trace us injudicious fondness for our own opinions and intellectual productions. This is an illusion Winch represents to us of so Many beauties what other men often condemn As defects As symptoms of hatted and envy even when our censures Are mild and reasonable. Pride aspires to a mental supremacy and would enforce n submission to its mandate nay to its conceptions. It despises the acquirement of another it loathes the authority of Wisdom and experience and in its Oddi tii is better pleased to ramble in the wild mazes of error than to walk in the High Road of Wisdom. It is particularly anxious to acquire a name and a distinction above the commonalty and such is its character that it seems to be regulated rather by a passion for Fame than for truth. The imposing brilliancy of falsehood attracts the soul of Man when it is Likely to throw a Light on the path which leads to celebrity. Pride is the pro a Lytic Parent of in Ara doxy the ambitious projector of schemes the pretended reformer of philosophy of truth and Sanctity itself the propagator and stubborn defender of falsehood. At first it is perhaps an opinion As i cautiously formed As expressed a sort of Rusli venture. If truth does not punish it the innovator triumphs and his impudence becomes proportionate to Bis Success. Docs lit find bettors and supporters of his doctrine his impudence now swells and attempts to sweep Down every obstacle he w ill not confess that he is wrong he perseveres in his evil course and Hilt too Ninny in society Are foolish enough to construe his rash imbecility into intellectual strength. Error leads to error and what at first was Only n sombre Dot in the moral firmament grows into a dark and ominous Cloud w hich pregnant with the lightnings of desolation bursts and pours Forth a blasting fire of social would he the attempt to regulate Buchan individual by the maxims of sound and sober reason to subject him by the weight of authority Check him by the fear of his a whinging the religious moral and political world. Pride will not he controlled. Yes there arc persons possessed of a satanic Pride who would glory in offering up this world As a holocaust that it May fling n dismal Light on the Ascendancy of their opinions and in seeing them hovering Over the Universal ruin which they had occasioned. Leibnitz has somewhere remarked that he met with some such characters what student or rather what Muster of nature has not wll dismal consequences has not their impious audacity entailed on the human family we must now Nic ution the last source of the errors of the heart and eventually of the is a passion in appearance mild Hilt in effect most cruel which gently insinuates itself into the soul which flatters to betray and play the despot i which in tunicates but never satisfies and 1 inflicts n tedious quarantine of misery for
