U. Porter cannot In used by him or any other person wituout infring ing my said patent. And, further, that what <x patented by said Porter rightfully belong* lo me, as I expect to prove ere ioug before the United States Patent Ollice ; and, further, that the use ol said Porter's invention involves also u proceed which 1 am now claiming before the United States Patent Olfice, aud which has been adjudged to be patentable to the first inventor thereof, and which said W. D. Porter has formally disclaimed, as ap pears upon the public records of said olfice, ol which an oiiicial copy is hereto annexed, aud also a copy of his claims. In the National IntsUigeucer of the 25th instant Mr. Porter announces that he has secured by patent the "exclusive right to making gas from wood," and threaten* prosecution to all parties infringing his patent. 1 ask how this statement oomports with the far) of my patent of December, 1851, aud how far the threat can intimidate under such circumstances? Mr. Porter's claim is based upon a movable j>erforated diaphragm, and was so understood by the Patent Ollice, as it appear* from the records of the Patent Olfice that bis claim was at first refused as interfering with a prior patent to Robert Foulis, ol Canada, for an equivalent contrivauce. This claim, as given be low, and in which the perforated diaphragm is the saving clause, is what Mr. Porter calls securing the "exclusive right to making gas from wood.' The statement carries absurdity on its Iront, and is a libel on the good sense of the Patent 0 tice If such a claim or right bad been grunted, it would forbid every coal-kiln and charcoal mauulactory in the country. The following copies of correspondence and extracts from the records ol the Patent Ollice will show the true state ol the ease: Unite* Status Patent Office, A'iguxt 25, ISfvi. Sir.

It will support cordially and earnestly the prm ciple* of the Democratic party of tlu Untied Stat** it doe* not propose to be the organ ol any Depart nient of the Government, except in so far a* an in dependent maintenance of the doctrines of that party may represent it* opinions and express it* views. It will not be ambitious to commend itsell to th< people by a blind flattery of their ruler*. It will .?eek public * ^pport by the bold avowal of the "entiuieula wnieh are common to the genuine 1'emocracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion of all such as may conflict with thein. trom whatever quarter they may come. It wi!l seek to be (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the '>rgun of the Democratic party of th?? Waited Stale*. Th*- Sentinel will maintain, a* u furtdaraenul truth of that great party, that the States formed the Union l>etween them by the ratification of the (Jon stitutiou as a compact; by which, aNe. they created the Federal Government, and delegated to it, an their common agent, the power* expressly specified in it, with an exjilicit reservation of all others to the State*, or to their separate govern ment*. The exercise of any powers beyond these thufc delegated, in, therefore, an usurpation of the reserved authority of the State* by the agent ol their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the rights of th# States under the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the latter, it will the more effectually ?strengthen and perpetuate the former. With regard to the exercise of the power* ol the Fecsral Government, the Sentinel will take a> the i rinciple* of it* action, that Congress "hall ex ercis no power which has not been delegated by ihe G? nstitution, according to a strict and fair in terpret tion of it* language and spirit; and that it shall nc seek to attain indirectly an object through the exei 'ise of eonslituttonal poioer, for the direct attainme t of whieh it has no Allegation i>/ power. In othwr words, all powers exercised must be clearly gra ted, and all granted power* must be used for no uirpose. except such as is clearly in tended by th Constitution. In respect to the internal administration ot the Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic party. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will besi promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the Stales, by being less ambitious to exercise power, ami more ai.xious to preserve liberty; and l,y leaving to the individual States the manage ment of aM their domestic eonrerru?while it con tents itself with guarding the confederacy Irom external violence, and directing the foreign policy of the country to the promotion of the common interest*, and defence of the common right*, and honor of (he States composing it. The Sentinel will advocate such a progressive foreign policy as will suit itself to the exigencies, and correspond with the expanding interest* of the country. That policy should be energetic and de cided; but should temper firmness with liberality, and make its highest ends consist with the strictest principles of justice. The real interest* of the country, upon ea< h occasion demanding attention will be its guide in the course the Sentinel, wil pursue. The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In ths growing sense of weakness of some of the nation?of the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a coin mon motive to colonial extens'on has developed self. . Our settled determination tc repel interference from abroad with our domestic concerns, wil prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun tries, HHlrs* by their foreign or colonial |?ol?cy our peace should be threatened, our security endan ire red, or our interests invaded. For when the ? elfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights, and plaf-es in the pathway of our commerce h dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, by war Our foreign policy should, indeed, be defensive, but to be properly defemivt. >t must sometimes be apparently aggre**iv?. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of im)>ortant movements, commercial and i>oliti'Jil, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an American foreign policy. We must have it. We cannot avoid it if we would. We have larger interests, and a greater stake in the world and its destiny, than every other people. We occupy the b?*t portion of a continent, with bo neighbors but a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. ^ e are the olny people whose own land, without colonial de fendencies, is washed by the two great oceans of the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilixed life, and I* human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources more vast?our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and exhaustless in its yet hidden wealth is at our feet. European trade seeks th? great East through avenue* which are at our doors, or must be made through our own limits. Europe, Asia. Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying all around us, look to us as th? rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the bless ings of liberty, civilisation. and religion, are des tined to triumph over the barbarism and supersti tion of the millions of the world. And shall such a people refuse to lay hold upon their destiny, and ?ct upon th? hi|b iriis?KHl to which it is railed A mission so full of hope, though so laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make onr confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. # The Sentinel will, therefore, advocate a hold and earnest foretgn policy, such as the condition o? the country demands; but it will advocate it under tlir flag ofthe country?nowhere else. Its foreign policy must be consistent with the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at homeand abroad, and to be great in the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing that is wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to the rights of others, and (inn and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be true to its own interests, rights, and honor?it cannot then lie false to those of other nations. Such, then, is the chart by which we shall be guided Independent and free we shall endeavor to be honest and truthful. The tru?# friends ol democratic principles we shall cordially support and defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de, nounce. To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rival of no press ol its own party?the personal enemy of none of the other. The present Democratic Administration has our t?st wishes for its success in the establishment ol the great principles upon which it came into power; and in its honest lal?ors lo attain such an end il will find the Sentiwbl its friend and coadjutor. r ATI-.lt YKAKM, t>y tlie Author of' the 1 j Old House Mr the River."

When new aspirants lor popular favor are announced, the public have u right to demand the grounds upon which such show ol title to their patronage is made. In ac knowledgment of this, we trace the custom# ol parties in the avowal of principles; of religious *eciss in the promulgation of creed*; anil ot per sons in ail pursuits of life, dependent upon the public for success, in their preparatoi y expositions of plans and purposes The customs thus origin ating, though sometimes abu-ed, are useful and proper, and should not be discarded. And *hen, in obedieuce to custom, new plans ore proposed, those appiovmg ought not to withhold their en couragement, as too many do, until they see that success is sure, for their aid may be needed to secure it. Stfch a foolish policy as this jeopar dizes the plan they approve, and hastens its lailure j it has deleated many important euterprizes, and has deprived i he country ol good and useful works. If a new proposition ot any kind is approved by the public, the support of tho^e approving is ol right expected, their approval being solicited only in the view that their more substantial aid will not l?e v/ilhheld. BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF THE PROPOSED PERIODICAL. Tiik Southern Conservative Maoazin* will occtiov ground* but little cultivated by American mnea/tnisls. It is believed that a field is open tor a periodical of a new and, in some respects, * hiijh r order than has b#en aimed at in our maga zine literature. In this belief, and with such an aim, we announce the Southern Conservative Macvzine. . ? i i The new magazine will be national and not sccl'onul; claiming no merit by virtue of its es tablishment in the South, but aiming at a higlier u?el ulncss and a more general accsplability. It will be Protestant, but not sectarian; opposing relmious bigotry or uitolleranoe on the one side, Hud iiifidelity on the other - laboring in its teach ,?Kt. to advance a closer union between the several branches ol the great family ol the church. li will be political, but liberal; owing no slavish allegiance to parties or politicians, it will advocate inersures,.not men, and will labor only for the success ol principle#. , It will be progressive, yet sternly opj?osid to th? reckless spirit of innovation so rile in the country? aiming to elevate and advnnce, not de pies-; to reform and improve, not to destroy, sacredly adhering to the true intent of our great republican theory, and laboring to advance it to :is fullest development. . It will be truly American in tone and sentiment, but will repudiate nothing foreign, merely because ,o: believing that the good, the useful, and true I elong not, pur excellence, to any lavored people, 'iut are the common right of all It will be the organ of pure conservatism. It will encourage a high-toned literature, aud defend pure morals in all the social relations ol ' And it will number in its corps of regular con tributor* some of the ablest political and literary writers of the country. Tne magazine will be printed on the finest quality of paper, with new type, and m a p'aiu but sui?erior style. . Each number will contain not less than oO large octavo pug.-s, made up of original articles con tributed and editorial ? reviews, political and scientific ei-says, romances, poetry, ?c.

GENTLEMEN.?The valuable medicinal properties of Balaam Copaiba have long been recognized by the faculty, hut the frrat dis ajvania?(e arising Irom its iia.irvous taste baa hitherte prevented its administration in many diseases lor which it is particularly- adapted. The usual ' modiit operandi" of prescribing it, either in the form of an Emulsion or Gelatinous Cap sules, has not been found satisfactory, being liable to some objection, either from lite difficulty expe rienced by some individuals in the deglutition of the Capsule or the small quantity of Copaiba gen* erally lound in the Emulsion. Joyce's tasteless solution of Copaiba it the most unique preparation yet introduced to the medical profession, as it contain* 00 |mt cent, ot the purest Para Copaiba, without taste or smell, and at same time nines clearly and freely with water, and is pronounced by the most eminent physicians and analytical chemists in the old and new worlds to contain all the medicinal proper ties of Ual?am Copaiba without its diaagreable characteristics. It is an efficient preparation for all- diseases of the mucous membranes, and particularly Gono rhevra, Leucorrhuea, Gleet, painful hemorrhoidal affections, and in chronic irritation of the bladder.
