Lr abiutt or tub Gotbrnubyt pox Scp
ruts. The cast of Gibbons against the
Government , for furnishing oats to tha
quartermaster's department In the fall of
1803, was yesterday argued before tha United
States Supreme Court, on appeal from tha
Court of Claims. Gibbons contracted with
tha department to furnish two hundred
thousand bushels of oaU at a certain price,
and entered upon the undertaking. Subse
quently the quartermaster refased to receive
the groin, and tha claimant was unable to
perform the contract, and considered ll al an
end. Bat sometime afterwards the same
officer demanded tha completion of the con
tract, and by the assertion of such military
authority as caused tha claimant to consider
himself nnder arrest. Induced him to pro
cure the balance of grain required, although
he protested that tho contract was extinct
and no longer binding. Meanwhile the
prlco of oats had advanced, bat the claim
ant was paid nnder the contract, which was
less than the ruling rates. Tho Court of
Claims held the contract to hare become
votd by the act of tho quartermaster, but re
fased to glre htm Judgment for the difference
In valae of the grain, holding that he mast
take the consequences of his folly In yield
ing to the unauthorised assertion of power.
The appeal Is based upon the general princi
ple that having accepted and need tho sup
plies, the Government Is bound to pay the
market value of the article furnished at the
time of delivery.

An iNTxscsTtNa Patbnt Decision.
Commissioner Fisher has Just written a de
cision on the application of David W.
Hughes, of Palmyra, Mo , for an extension
of his patent for Improvement In baud seed
planters, which, as It reaches a number of
cases likely to como before the office, will be
read with interesti
The Commissioner admits at the outset
the usefaloeae and novelty of the Invention,
and proceeds to review the testimony In the
case, frou which It appears that daring the
first seven years of tho life othe patent the
patentee was reaping a handsome reward
from his Invention, his sales and profits
& row log annually larger, tbo nett receipts
ring about f 13,000 In tbo seven years,whlle
a largo number of machines hare been man
ufactured without his consent, the royalty
upon which, at tho rates he established,
would amount to about f 13,000 more. A
reasonable estimate for tbo remaining seven
years, If the time bad been diligently em
ployed and proper precautions bad been
taken against Infringers, Is set at from 150,-
000 to 1 100,000.
Tho Commissioner says i "The years of
the war were the harvest time of the manu
facturers of agricultural Implements. As
tUlwart farmers were metamorphosed Into
soldiers, wood and Ironwero transmuted Into
Tho inquiry Is made how the seven years
thus lost were spent by the Inventor. As the
patent has remained from first to last In the
hands of the Inventor, the burden of proof
Is thrown upon him lo show that the benefit
which he might have derived from the use
of his Invention was not lost through any
fault or nejrtect of his.
The applicant was a machinist, residing
at Palmyra, Mo , engaged In the manufac
ture or these Implements. In 1850, be sold
or theso planters 100 1 In 1857, 800 1 In 1653,
1,500, aod In 1859, 2,000. Here was a rapid
Increase of sales, and every Indication or a
growing and prosperous busiutst.
In 1800, be however concluded to abandon
this business and go Into mining lu New
Mexico, leaving his patent for ooe year to a
firm In Palmyra. Upon tho breaking out of
war ho returned to the States to make somo
purchases for his mines, but appears to hare
shown no Interest or made any Inquiries af
ter bis lessees or thslr business, but shortly
afterward, under pretence of a desire to
communicate with New Mexico, via Texas,
he voluntarily went by way or St. Louis,
Louisville, aod Nashville, to Memphis,
Tenn., the city then being In tho bands or
the enemy. At that place he went to work
In a gun factory, but presently departed for
Jacksou, Miss , where be was engaged "in
making, altering and repairing patterns of
different kinds, such as cotton presses,
machinery, ordnance storcs,canuoo castlogs,
4c, " understanding that he was by vir
tue of bis employment exempted from the
conscription. About six months before the
taking or Jackson by the United States
forces, applicant went to Montgomery, Ala
Ills principal reason for leaving was that ho
"expected Jackson would be taken and
there would be some fighting." klle oddsi "I
feared getting hurt."
In Montgomery he engaged In manufac
turing machinery making castor and pea
nut oil. Subsequently be manufactured arti
ficial limbs. After the war, there being no
more danger of getting hurt, be returned lo
Jackson, where ho remained until 18S7, when
he camo north, and la 1S08-'G9 again made
aud sold his planter.
Once, and only once, during the war be
attempted to leave the South, lie walked
up the railroad how far ho does not say
wheu, finding he could not, within the ene
my's Hues, exchange their carreucy for
United States notes, ho "turned back aad
conoluded to remain until the war was
The Commissioner sayst "It Is only ne
cessary to state. In order to complete this
story, that applicants, father and brother,
finding this abandoued Invention lying Idle,
look It up upon tbelr own responsibility and
manufactured about one thousand machines
per annum, and made money at it, while
tho owner of tho patent was turning gun
barrels and repairing patterns for ordnance
stores and cannon castings and manufac
turing artificial limbs for his country's ene
mies, "lie now asks that that country may bo
taxed for seven years more to enable hlra to
reap from this Invention tho profit which be
tost whllo endeavoring to the extent of his
ability to destroy tho Government whose
favor he Invokes. The novelty of the de
mand to bo paid la this form for his services
to tho enemy Is only equalled by Us effront-
1 cry. The extension Is refused."
