DAVID RHAD, 2oi (man. Burlington, Oct. 3d. 1816. The Sentinel on the Human .Hind. CHATTER II. The Sentinel plunged a little deeper into the mysteries of the human mind, last week, than it ilid before ! We don't care a pin for the low opinion it has of our capacity to comprehend its " bread distinction." We admitted in the outset that it was too deep for us, and if it had a particle of magnanimity it would pursue its metaphysical investigations without turning out of its course to dospi-e us ! However, we won't complain. We shall even quote its articles notwithstanding their abiiio of us, for the sake of the instruction they enj'tain. Jly the followingcxtract our read ers will seo that, in the second chapter, the .S'en- txncl informs us that judgment" is "a simple, natural faculty of the mind," no modified, or dc veloped.or strengthened by use, of course, (The sentinel luriusliesa line sample, bythe way)smd that teeing, hciriug, tatting smelling, &c. are "powers or capacities nf the mindU) which re sult from a continued nnd concentrated action of many faculties."
