D. Porter cuunot l>? used by him or any other person wituout infriug mg my said patent. And, further, that what i.v patented by said Porter rightfully belongs to me an I expect to prove ere long before the United States Patent Office ; and, further, that the use ol said Porter's invention involves also a process which 1 am now claiming before the Uuited States ' Patent Ollice, and which has been adjudged to be pulentable to the first inventor (hereof, and which said W.D.Porter has formally disclaimed, as ap pears upon the public records ol said office, of which un official copy is hereto annexed, and also a copy of his claims. | In the National Intelligencer of the 25th instant | Mr. Porter announces that he has secured by j patent the "exclusive right to making gas from wood," and threatens prosecution to all parties infringing his patent. 1 ask how this statement comports with the fact of my patent of December. 1851, and how far the threat can intimidate under such circumstances? Mr. Porter's claim is based upon a movable perforated diaphragm, and was so understood by the Patent Office, as it appear* i from the records of the Patent Office thut his claim was at tirwt refused as interfering Willi a prior pateut to Robert Foulis, of Canada, for ,tn equivalent contrivance. This claim, as given be low, and in which the perforated diaphragm is the saving clause, ih what Mr Porter calls securing the ''exclusive right to making gas from wood.-' The statement curries ubsurdity on its front, and is a libel oil the good sense of the Patent OKce II such a claim or right had been granted, it would forbid every coal-kiln and charcoal manufactory in the country. The following copies of correspondence and extracts Iroin the records of the Patent Office will show the true state of the ease: United States Patent Office, August '25, 1854. Sir. In reply to your letter of this date, asking " if uny patent has been granted to W. D.

D. Porter, under his application for a patent, which letters patent were issued bearing the al>ove date, you are informed that W. D. Porter's claims are believed to be c nlined to his appara tus; and, further, this office is not awara that a patent has been graufed heretofore for the exclu sive right of making gas from u>o*d.

IP HO POSE to publish in the city of Washing ton, in September, a political newspaper, un der the name of the WASHINGTON SENTI NEL In doing so", it is proper I should make known the principles ft will maintain, and the policy it will advocate. It will support cordially and earnestly the prm ciplesofthe Democratic party of the Untied Stat** it does not propose to be the organ of any Depart nient of the Government, except in so far us an in dependent maintenance of the doctrinv* of that party may represent its opinions and express its views. It will not be Ambitious to commend itself to the people by a blind flattery of their rulers. It will see* public h jpport by the bold avowal ol the sentiments which are common to the genuine Democracy of the Union, and by the condemna tion of all such as may conflict with them, from whatever quarter they may come. It will seek to be (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the organ of the Democratic party of the United States. The Skntinbl will maintain, as a tundamentnl truth of that irreat party, that the Slates formed the Union between them by t he rutilication of the ( on stitution as a compact; ?>y which. aNw. they < r? uie l the Federal Government antl delegated a. as their common agent, the power1- expr.-sslv specified in it, with an explicit reservation ol all others to the States, or to their separate govern meats. The exercise of any powers beyond thes? thus delegated, is. therefore an usurpation ol the reserved authority of the States by the nifent <>t their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the I'nioti upon (he basis ol the rights ol tne States-?tinder the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the lutter. it will the more effectually strengthen and perpetuate the former. With regard to the exercise of the powers ol the Ketfral Government, the Sentinel will take as the i rinciples of its action, that Congress shall ex ercis no power which has not been delegated by the C. ustitution, according to a strict and fair in terpret tion of its language and spirit; and that it shal' n< seek to attain indirectly an object through the exei "ise of co)Lstitutional jtower, for the direct attainine t of whivh it has no ilehgalion of power. In other words, all powers exercised must be clearly gra ted, and all granted powers must be used for no >urpose, except siieh as is o.learlv in tended by th Constitution. , In respect to the internal administration ol the Government, the Se.vunei. will sustain the settled policy of the Democratic party. It will labor to iiiculrate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will besi promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the States, by being less ambitious to exercise power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual Stales the manage ment of all their domestic concerns?while it eon 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 ruthts. and honor of the States composing it. The Sentinel 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 *houk' l?e energetic and de cided; but should temper limine."* with liberality, and make its highest ends consist with the sfrictest principles of justice. The real interests ol the country, upon eai 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 the growing sense ol weakness of some of the nation* ol the Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com. mon motive to colonial extens'on has developed aelf. Our settled determination tc repel interference from, abroad with our domestic <^>ucerns, wil prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other eoun tries, unlet* by their foreign or colonial |?olicy our peace should be threatened, our security endan gered, or our interests invaded. lor 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 resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, Vy war ?? Our loreign policy should, indeed, be defensive, but to lie properly defensive, it must sometimes be apparetuly aggressive. Our administration should lie vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full 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. ^ e 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 a continent, with bo neighbors but a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. W e are the oluy people whose own land, without colonial de fendeneies, is washed by the two great oceans ol the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized lile, and is human progress?our mineral and manulacturing resources more vast?ourfacilities 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 exhaustlesa in its yet hidden wealth is at our feet. European trade seeks the great basi through avenues which are at our doors, or must be made through our own limits. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying nil around us. look to us as the rising power, through the agency of whose example, and ever widening and extending, though peaceful influences, the M?M ings of liberty, civilixation, and religion, arc des lined to triumph over the barbarism and sujiersti Uon 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 called? A mission so full of hope, though so laden with responsibility, whsi'h, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The Sektik*l will, therefore, advocate a bold and earnest foreign politf, such as the condition 01 the country demands; but it will advocate it under the flag of the country?nowhere else. Us loreign policy must be consistent wilh the spotless honor and unimpeachable good faith of the country* To be respectable at home and abroad, and to lie great in the eyes of the world, it must ask for nothing but what is right, and submit to nothing lhat is wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimous to ihe rights of others, and firm and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be true to its own interests, rights, and honor?it cannot then he false to thos* of other nations Such, then, is the chart by which we shall be guided. Independent and free, we shall endeavor to be honost and truthful. The true friend* ol democratic principle* we shall cordially support and defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper ocwasions 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 test wishes for its success in the establishment of the great principles H|ion which it came into power and in its honest labors to attain such an end it will find the Sentinel its friend and cbadjutor. 1ATKK YKAKM, t>y the Author ol - the j Old House by the River."

PU< iSPiitTL.X.-SOLTUEltNCONSftK vative Magazine*?When new aspirants lor popular favor are announced, the public have a right to demaud the grounds upon which such show ol title to their patronage is made. In ac knowledgment of this, we trace the customs ot parties in the nvowal of principles; of religious sects, iu tlie promulgation of creeds; and of per sons in all pursuits of lite, dependent upon the public lor success; in their preparatory expositions of plans and purposes. The customs thus origin ating, though sometimes abu<ed, ?re useful and proper, and 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 ihey *ee that success is sure, for their aid may be needed to se< ore it. Such a foolish policy as this jeopar dizes the plan they approve, and haptens its failure; ? u has defeated many important enterprises, and hnf deprived the country of good and useful works. If a new proposition of any kind is approved by the public, the support of those approving is ot right expected, their approval being solicited only in the view that their more substantial aid will not be v/ithheld. IJRIEF OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF THE PROPOSED PERIODICAL. The Southern Conservative Magazine will occupy grounds but little cultivated by American iuaga74iiwts. It is believed that a field is open for a periodical of a new and, in some respects, a high -r order than has been aimed at in our maga zine literature. Iu this belief, and with such an niin, we announce the Southern Conservative Mngveine. The new magazine will be national and not seri'onul; claiming no merit by virtue of its es tablishment in the South, but aiming at a higher usefulness mid a more general acceptability. It will be Protestant, but not sectarian; op|>osing religious bigotry or iutollerance on the one side, and infidelity on the other?laboring iu its teach ings to ad', auce a closer union between the several branches ot the greai family of the church. It will be political, but liberal; owing no slavish allegiance to parties or politicians, it will ad vocate mersures, not men, und will labor only for the sm. cess of principles. It will be progressive, yet sternly opposed to thr 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 great republican theory, and laboring to advance it to its fullest development. It will be truly American in lone and sentiment, but will repudiate nothing foreign, merely because so; believing that the good, the useful, and true I elong not, par excellence, to any favored people, 'ait are the common right of all. ll will be the organ of pure conservatism. It will encourage a high-toned literature, and defend pure morals in all the social relations ot life. And it will number in its corps of regular con tributors some ol the ablest political and literary writers of' the country. Tne magazine will be printed on the finest quality of |>a|?er, witii new type, and in a plain but superior style. Each number will contain not less than 30 large octavo pages, made up of original articles, con tributed and editorial ? reviews, political and scientific essays, romances, poetry, &c. We promise much for the new magazine, and we intend to perform it all, aud more, if the read ing public will give the enterprise a liberal en courayement. TERMS OF SUBSCRIPTION. The Southern Conservative Magazine writ be issued, the first of each mouth, from the office of publication, Nashville or Knoxville, Tennessee, and will be furnished to susenbers at four dollars a year, or three dollars if paid punctually in ad vnnce.
