iE It kuuwu that I, the subscriber ??b
tauicd letter* patent iu December, 1851, lor
an apparatus for the destructive distillation oi
wood, and the making therefrom oflar or pitch-at
pleasure, and gas; and that in the judgment ol
competent persous the inventiou of an appar
. tua recently patented by W. D. Porter cannot be
used by him or any other iier&on without infring
ing my aaid patent. And, further, that what is
patented by said Porter rightfully belong* to me,
a? I expect to prove ere long before the United
States Patent Office ; and, further, that the use ol
said Porter's invention iuvolves also a process
which I am now claiming before the United State*
Pat?jnl Oliice, aud which has been adjudged to be
patentable to the linn inventor thereof, and which
said W.D. Porter has formally disclaimed, at* ap
pears upon the public records ol auid office, ot
which an official copy is hereto annexed, and also
a copy of his claims.
In the National Intelligeneer of the 35th instant
Mr. Porter annouuees that he has secured by
patent the "exclusive right to makiug gas from
wood," and threatens prosecution to all parlies
infringing his patent. 1 ask how this statement
comports with the fact of my patent of December,
1851, aud how tar 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 appears
from the records of the Patent Office that his
I claim was at lirit refused as interfering with a
| prior patent to Robert Foulis, of Canada, for an
equivalent contrivance. 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 it# front, and
is u libel on the good sense of the Patent Office
If such a claim or right had been granted, it would
forbid every ooal-kilu aud charcoal inannfactory
in the country.

extracts from th? records of the Patent Office will

I PROPOSE to publish in the city of Wa*niiu -
ton, in September, a political newspaper, un
der the nam.- of the WASHINGTON SENT!
III doing to. It in |iroj>i*r I ,nould make known
the principle n will maintain. and tin* |iolicy i
will adVocuie
II will support cordially uud earnestly the prm
ciples of the De-uwcraiir party of thr United Shu- ?
it does not propose to lie the organ of any Tit* part
ment of the Government, except in *o far as un in
dependent maintenance of the doctrin? ol that
party may reprasent .it* opinion* md express n?
| views.
It will not be ambitious to commend iiselt to til.
people by a blind flattery of then- rulers Ji will
seek public & jppon by the i>old avowitl oi tin
sentiments wnich are common to the genuine
1 democracy of the Union, and by the condemna
tion of all meh as may con(li>-.t with them, from
whatever quarter they may come, ft will seek* to
Ihs (and it will endeavor to des?rve the title) the
organ of the Democratic party of the Unite I
j 8tates.
The Sentinel will maintain, as h fundament."!
truth of that great party, that the States iormed the
Union between them by the ratification of the Con
stitution as a i-ompact; by which, also, they created
the Federal Government, and d?-legaifil to it,
a- their common ngent, the power?- expressly
specified in it. with an explicit reservation of all
others to the States, or to their reparaic g /veri>
menta. The exercise of any jjower* lieyond ilie?~
thus delegated, is, therefore, an u?iirpatiou of llie
reserved authority of the States hv 'he aji- ui ot
their own creation.
The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union
u|>on the basis of the right* 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 ot the'power* of the
Fettral Government, the Sentinel will take a?
the j rinciples of ita 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 Uon of its language and spirit; and that it
*hal' nc seek to attain indirectly an objeotthroutrh
the exei use of ronstiuuioiial pmotr. for the direct
at tain me t ol which it has no delegation of power.
In other words, all powers exercised must be
clearly gra led. and all granted powers must be
used for no mrpose, except such a* is clearly in
truded by th Constitution.
In respect to the internal administration ot the
Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled
policy of the Democratic pnrty. It will labor to
inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in
ternal policy:?that this Government will best j
promote the freedom and prosperity of the people
ot' the Stales, by being less ambitious to exercise
power, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and
by leaving to the individual States the manage
ment of 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 Skntimkl 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. Srvtinkl wit
The national policy of the world in this age is
essentially aggressive. In th? growing sense ot
weakness of some of the nations of the Old World,
and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com

Our settled determination tc repel interference
trom abroad with our domestic concerns, wil
prompt us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun
tries, unit*.* by their foreign or colonial policy our
|ieace should be threatened, our security endan
gered, or our interests invaded. For M-hen the
selfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign
or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights,
and places in the jtathway of our commerce a
dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must
be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need l?e, ky
Our foreign policy shouid. indeed, be defensive,
hut to be properly diffusive, A must sometimes be
'ipparentl-y aggressive. Our administration should
be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world
is full of importsnt movements, commercial and
politi'.al, deeply concerning American trade and
Americau 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 stnke in the world and its destiny, than
every other people. We occupy the best portion
of a continent, with ao neighbors but a colony, and
a worn-out, anarchical despotism. We are the
olny people whose own lana, without colonial de
fendencies, is washed by the two great oceans ol
the world. Our agricultural productions are more
varied and more essential to civilized lite, and la
human progress?our mineral and manufacturing
resources more vast?ourfacilitiesandcapacityfor
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 exhauslless in its yet hidden wealth

through avenues which are at our doors, or must
be made through our own limits. Europe. Asm.
Africa, and the isles of the sea, lying all around
us, look to us as the rising power, through the
agency of whose example, and ever widening and
extending, though peaceful influences, the bless
ing* of liberty, civilization, and religio* 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 called?
A mission so full of hope, though so laden with
responsibility, wh>ch, il properly directed, must
make our confederacy the harbinger of |>eace to
the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its
The Sentinkl will, theretore, advocate a hold
and earnest foreign policy, such as the condition ot
the country demands; but it will advocate it under
the flag of the country?nowhere else. Its foreign
policy must be consistent with the spotless honor
and unimpeachable good faith of the country. To
lie respectable at home and abroad, and to he 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 firm and immoveable iu
insisting on its own. It must, in fine, be true to
its own interests, rights, and honor?it cannot then
be 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 true friends ot
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||
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
Iiest wishes for its success in the establishment 01
the great principles upon whioh it came into power;
and in its honest labors to attain such an end it
will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor.

uiaga/iniat*. It is believed that a field is open for

hi,rh *r order than has be?n aimed at in oar maga

j The new magazine will be natioual and not
' sect'ona!; claiming no merit by virtue of Us es
tablishment in the South, but aiming at a higher
usefulness and a more general acceptability
It wilt be Protestant, but not sectarian ; opposing
religious bigotry or intolerance on the one side,

branches of the great family of the church.
Ii will be political, but liberal; owing no slavish
allegiance to.parlies or politicians, it wiii advocate
mei'Siires not men, and will labor only for the
-uccess of principles.
It will be progressive, yet sternly opposed to
thr reckless spirit of innovation ao rife in the
country?aiming to elf vale and advance, not de
pies?; to reform and improve, not to destroy ;
sacredly adhering to the true intent of our gieai
republican theory, and laboring to advance it to
its fullest development.
It will be truly American in tone and sentiment,
hut will repudiate nothing foreign, mere'y because
so; believing that the good, the useful, and true
I elong not, par excellence, to any favored people,
\ut are the common right of all.
It will be the orgauuf pure conservatism.
It will encourage a high-toned literature, and
defend pure morals in all the social relations ol
1 And it will number in its corps of regular con
tributors some of the ablest political and literary
writers of the country.
Ttie magazine will be printed ou the nue*t
quality of paper, with new type, and in a plain
but superior style.
Each number will contain not lesa than ol) large
octavo pages, made up ol original articles, con*
