We are however aware, that the prejudiced enemies of the art will evade the conclusion derived from such premises, and instead of considering them as a proof of astrology, will declare such facts to be weaknesses of these great men. This sweeping assertion is but too often used as an argument, when, at the same time, it is an assertion devoid of all argument; yet, as the majority of mankind still follow the slavish trammels of custom, it is difficult to disprove that which is so congenial to the commonly received Opinion of our literary com peers. However, in no instance whatever is prejudice respectable, and least of all so, when found in a quarter where it should be entirely out of the question. If, however, astrology be a delusion, and the offspring of superstition as they term it, so is the greater part of astronomical principles, for more than two-thirds of the science depends upon mathematical and astronomical data, and therefore de monstrable; neither is it the offspring of ignorance, as some also term it, since it requires a very able calculator to make use of its theory.
