L). Porter cannot be used by him or any other person wiluout infring ing my said patent. Aud, further, that what u patented by said Porter rightfully belongs to me, as I ex|?eot to prove ere long before the United States Patent Office ; and, further, that the use ol aaid Porter's invention involves also a process which I am now claiming before the United States Patent Office, and which haa been adjudged to be patentable to the first inventor thereof, and which aaid W. D. Porter has formally disclaimed, aa ap pears upon the public records of said office, ol which an official copy ia hereto aunexed, aud also a copy of hia claims. Iu the National Intelligencer of the 23th instant Mr. Porter announces thai he haa secured by patent the "exclusive right to making gas from wood," and threatens prosecution to all parties infringing his patent. I ask how this statement com porta with the fact of my patent of December, 1831, aud how far the threat can intimidate under I such circumstance*? Mr. Porter's claim is bused upon a movable perforated diaphragm, and was so understood by the Patent Office, as it appears from the records of the Patent Office that his claim was at fir^t refused as interfering with a prior pateut to Robert Poulis, of Canada, for an equivalent contrivance. This claim, as given be low, aud in which the perlorated diaphragm is the j saving clause, is what Mr Porter culls securing i the "exclusive right to making gas from wood. The statement carries absurdity on its front, and is a libel on the good sense of the Patent O'tice ll such a claim or right had been granted, it wqjild forbid every coal-kilu aud charcoal manufactory in the country. The following copies oi correspondence and extracts from the records of the Patent Office will show the true state of the ease: IJmTKS STATICS PaTKNT OFFlCX, August 23, 1834. Siu.

Democratic party of the Umtrd State* it does not propose to be the organ of any Depart ment of the Government, except in so far as an iu dependent maintenance of the doctrine of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. 1 It will not be ambitious to couoend itself to the people bv a blind flattery of tlieir rulers. It will seek public * ;pport by the bold avowal of the sentiments wnich are common to the genuine Pemooracy of the Union, and by the condemno Hon of all such a? may conflict with them, from whatever quarter they may come. It will seek to Ixr (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the organ of the Democratic party of the United states. The Sintinil will maintain, as a fundamental truth ol that great party, that the States formed the Union between them by the ratifleation of the Con stituUon as a compart; by which, alse. they created the Federal (government, and delegated 10 it, a* their common agent, the power* expressly specified in it, with an explicit reservation of all others to the 8tates, or to their .separate govern ments. The exercise of any powers beyond these thus delegated, is, therefore, an usurpation of the reserved authority of the States by the agent of I heir own creation. The Skntinkl will uphold and defend th?- 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* of the Pet-iral Government, the Skntinkl will take ai the i rinetples of its action, that Congress shall ex erc's no power which has not been delegated by the C. nstttution, according to a strict and fair in" tTr,?fel l'?n ofit" "d ?pirit; and that it sbal. nc seek to attain indirectly an object through the exet -ise of constitutional power, for the direct attninnie I of which it has no delegation of power. In othar words, all iiowers exercised must be clearly gra ted, and all granted powers must be used for no mrpose. except such as >* Hearlv in | tended by th Constitution. In respect to the internal administration ot the (Government, the Skntinkl will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic party. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic iu terna! policy:?that this Government will best promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the States, by being less ambitious to exercise Eower, and more ar.xidus to preserve liberty; and y leaving to the individual States the manage ment ol all their domestic concerns?while it con tents itself with guarding the confederacy from external violence, and directing the foreign policy of the country to the promotion of the common interests, and defence of the common rights, and honor of the States composing it. The Skntinkl will advocate such a progressive foreign policy as will suit itself to the exigencies, and correspond with the expanding interests 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 interests of the country, upon each occasion demanding attention will be its guide in the course the Skntinkl wil pursue. The national policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense of weakness of some of the nations of the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com' mon motive to colonial extension has developed self. Our settled determination tc repel interference from abroad with our doiaertic concerns, wil prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun tries, unless by their foreign or colonial policy our peace should be threatened, our security eudan gered, or our interests invaded. For when the selfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights and places in the pathway of our commerce a dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be reaistttd by remonstrance, and, if need be, by war Our foreign policy shoUid indeed, be defensive, but to be properly defensive. .1 must sometimes be apparently aggressive. Our administration should be mgilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is In If of important movements, commercial and political, 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 best portion of s continent, with ao neighbors bnt a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. We are the olny people whose own land, without colonial de lendencies, is washed by the two great oceans of ibe world. Our agricultural productions are more vaned and more essential to civilised life, and te human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resource* more vast-?our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign commerce more extended than those of any other people living under one I government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and exhauatleas in its yet hidden wealth is at our feet. European trade seeks the great East through avenues which are at our doors, or must be made through our own limits. Europe, Asis Africa, snd the isles of the sea, lying all around' us, look to ua aa ths rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening snd 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 ef the world. And shall such a people refuse to lay hold upon their destiny, and act upon the high mission to which it is called1 A mission so full of hope, though ao laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, ss well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The Sc*tinkl will, therefore, advocate a hold and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition 01 the country demands; but it will advocate it under the Hag of the country?nowhere elae. Its foreign policy must be consistent with the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To be respectable at home and 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 la wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to the righj? of others, and firm and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be trne to its own interests, rights, and honor?it cannot then l?e 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 snd truthful. The true friends ot democratic principles we shall rordia ly -upport snd defead. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasions de' ?ounce. To our future brethren oi the press we extend | the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is the rival of no press ot its own party?the personsi enemy of nond of the other. The present Democratic Administration has our l-est wishes for its success in the establishment ot the great principles upon which iteame into power; and ia its honest labors to attain such an end it I will find the Skntinkl its friend and coadjutor. j I ATER YEARS ?v the Author of - the 1 A Old House by the River."

Prospectus.?southern consilk vatlve Magaxlue.?When new aspiraut* Ibr popular favor are announced, the public have a right to demand the grounda upon which auch show of title to their patronage is made. In ac knowledgment of this, we trace the customs ot parlies in the avowal of principle*; ol religious sects, in the promulgation of creed*; and ol per sons in all pursuits of life, dependent upon the public for success, in their preparatory expositions of plans and purposes. The customs thus origin ating, though sometimes abused, are useful and proper, ana should not be discarded. And when, in obedience to custom, new plans are proposed, those appioving ought not to withhold their en couragement, as too many do, until they see that success i* sure, for their aid may be needed to secure it. Such a foolish policy as this jeopar dizes the plan they approve, and hastens its feilure; it has defeated many important enterprixes, and has deprived the country of good and useful works. If a uew proposition ol any kind is approved by the public, the support of those approving is ot right expected, their approval being solicited onlv in the view that their more subsiantial aid will not be v/ithheld. _ _ BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF THE PROPOSED PERIODICAL. Tub Southern Conservative Magazine will occupy grounds but little cultivated by American maga7inists. It is believed that a field is open lor a periodical of a new and, in some respects, a high ? r order than has been aimed at in our magu ziue literature. In this belief, and with such an aim, we annodnce the Southern Conservative Magvzine. The new magazine will be national and not sect'onal; claiming no merit by virtue ol its es tablishment in the South, but aiming at a higher usefulness and a more general acceptability. It will be Protestant, but not sectarian; opposing religious bigotry or intolerance on the one side, and infidelity on the other?laboring in its teach ings to advance a closer union between the several branches of the great family of the church. Ii will be political, but liberal; owing uo*lavi?h allegiauee to parlies or politicians, it will advocate mersures, not men, and will labor only lor the success of principles. It will be progressive, yet sternly opposed to th* reckless spirit of innovation so rife in the country?aiming to elevate and advance, not de pies?; to reform and improve, not to destroy; sacredly adhering to the true intent of our greal republican theory, and laboring to advance it to lis fullest development. It will be truly American in tone and sentiment, but will repudiate nothing foreign, merely because to; believing that the good, the usefal, and true I eloug not, par excellence, to any favored people, \ut are the common right of all. It will be the organ of pure conservatism. ll will encourage a high-toned literature, and defend pure morals in all the aocial relations ot life. Aud it will number in its corps of regular con tributors some of the ablest political and literary writers of the country. The magazine will be printed on the finest quality of paper, with new type, and in a plain but superior style. Each number will contain not less than 50 large octavo pages, made up of original articles, con tributed and editorial ? reviews, political and scientific essays, romances, poetry, 6ic. We promise much for the new inagaziue, aud we intend to perform it all, and more, if the read ing public will give the enterprise a liberal en couragement. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION. The Southern Conservative Magazine will be issued, the first of each month from t*e office of publication, Nashville or Knoxville, Tennessee, and will be famished to suscribers at four dollar* a year, or three dollars if paid punctually in ad vance.
