There is, no doubt, a propriety in the practice of justice, and it merits, upon that account, all the approbation which is due to propriety. Mathematicians and natural philosophers, from their independency upon the public opinion, have little temptation to form themselves into factions and cabals, either for parent and child the support of their own reputation, or for the depression of that of their rivals. A word must suffice to indicate the way in which it does this. It is instructive to note the cautiousness with which they will sometimes venture on the slippery “empirical” ground.

They never are, and it never is intended that they should be, mistaken for the real objects which they represent. If the first are frightened at the least breath of scandal, the last are disgusted with the smallest approach to popularity. As we feel it as something altogether external to us, so we necessarily conceive it as something altogether independent of us. ‘Qu’on donne tel ou tel nom a cette force de mon esprit qui rapproche et compare mes sensations; qu’on l’appelle attention, meditation, reflexion, ou comme on voudra; toujours est-il vrai qu’elle est en moi et non dans les choses, que c’est moi seul qui la produis, quoique je ne la produise qu’a l’occasion de l’impression que font sur moi les objets.

As long as the practice existed, it was therefore necessary to invest it with every solemnity, and to guard it with penalties that would obviate some of its disadvantages. We wonder and are amazed at the effect; and we are pleased ourselves, and parent and child happy to find that we can comprehend, in some measure, how that wonderful effect is produced upon us. Whatever may be our proportion of knowledge, zeal, and ability, it cannot be arrogance, when called upon, to say, that I believe this principle is more brought into practice by the plans and arrangements I have described, than is the case with any system of treatment in any place that I have hitherto heard of or seen.
