ot the origin <>t the rights of property and per
sonality, a question not new indeed, yet one
which lias not hitherto been satisfactoritv set
tled. These iiivcstigationsarc very metaphysi
cal, profound and denioiistmtiv«, and will give
satisfaction to minds in the habit of abstract
speculation. Readers, however, not dbpo*ed
t<> enter into them, after reading tltc summary
view, entitled ‘‘ On our actions,” will probably
pass on at onee to the coiniiit iiccuient of the

Although the work now ottered is but a trans

tiieoiiginal, that having never been published
in the country in which it was written; the
author would there have been submitted to the

sentiments, where t/iiv were neither free or
doHOtful, or of risking him/'If, under the un
settled regimen of their press. A manuscript
copy communicated ton friend here has ena

to read nothing, and which may he trusted with
any thing, so long as its reason remains unlet
