Operator can afford to try a torpedo oeiore aoanaoning a welt. The following ia the decision rendered by Judge Grler on the twenty-second (42) day of September, Its In the United State. Circuit Conrt at Philad.l. phi. The case was anroed three days, by Charles m. Aener 01 new iotk, v. w. i,a-as ana . A. rur-i Tianee of Pittsburgh, for defendants, and George Herding of Philadelphia, and George II. Christy, o Pllttbnrgb, far plainuff. OPINION; OF JUDGE GRIER. As I write with difficulty I can only state the con elusions in which my mind has come after a carefu examination of this case. ) Tbe complain mt hut exhibited' atpatcntTdatcd SfSth of April, imy This is prima fade evidence of a good title, and pnts on the respondents the bur den of proof that tbe patent ia void or worthless. I need not repeat my remarks in tbe ease of Good year vs. Day ( Wail. O. C. Kept SM.) but now adopt them as affording a rule of decision which ap plies clearly to the present eise. As the Infringement of the patent is admit ted, the only question will be as to the validity of com plainants patent of April 5,18W. "It was after speculation had been reduced to practice " and alter repeated experiments, that the complainant succeeded in overcoming'he prejudice and ignorance of the people on the subject, and persuading the public that his Invention was useful; after ho had established its great utility and Talue, and "when bis genius and patient perseverance, in spite of sneers and scoffs," were completely suc cessful, that Peed, who had before made experi ments on the seme subject, and was unsucceet-fttl, imagined that he had the best right to the Invention, and after purchasing one or more complainant's tor pedoe. he spoiled on the 1t of November, 1867, for a patent for substantially the same combina tions of devices and machine contained In complain ant's patent. On the 16th of the enme month the respondents formed themselves Into a company or corporation called "The Reed Torpedo Com pro v," for the purpose of pirating the complainant's In vention, and supporting the expense of litttration, end thus defraud him of the fruit. Thcv have ne.-. severed, even after the preliminary Injunction very property grauieu uj nv .nt-.nv. uiiukv Let a 'decree be entered forcomDlainant for a nor. petnal Injunction, and a Master appointed to take sa account according to the prayer of the bill. a. v. utujitt, judge. Not. The passage referred to by Judge Grier in his former dccVon, a Wallace, p. 299, adopted as applicable to this esse wss ss follows: "U is usually uro vara, nu.w ij vwunuie aircov ery Is stade, or any new machine of great utility is invented, that tbe attention of tho pnblio bos been turned to that subject previously, and that many persons have been making researches and experi ments. Philosophers and mechanicians may have in some measure anticipated in their speculations the possibility or probability of sneh discovery or invention; many experiments have been successful ly tiled, coming very near, yet falling short ot tha desired result. They have produced nothing bene flolal. The Invention when perfected may truly he iwld to be the culminating point or manv expert mon s, not only by the inventor, bnt by many ctb ors. tie may have profited indirectly by the unsuc cessful experiments and failures of other, but It gives them no rlsht to claim a share or the he nor of tho prottt of the successful Inventor It is when speculation has-been reduced to practice, when ex periment has resulted In discovery, and when that discuvery has been perfected by patient and contin ued experiments, when some new compound, art, manufacture, or machine has bean thus nrodnced .which is usefulto the piihlicthat the party making It bseomes a public benefactor and entitled to a patent MAua yet wnen genius sna paiiem perseverance have at length succeeded, In spits or sneers and scoffs, some valuable Invention or disco-ery, how seldom ia it followed by reward 1 Envy robs him of the honor, white specolstors.swlndlers. and pi rates rob him of the profits. Every unsuccessful experimenter who did or did or did not come very near making a discovery now claims It. Kvery ons who can luvent an improvement or vary its form, clatnia a right to pirate tho original discovery. We need not summons Morse, or Blanchard. or Wood worth to prove that this Is tha usual history of eve ry great discovery or Invention. "The present case aods another chapter to this long and nniform history ."a Wallace. O. C iie purta p. m. CAUTION.
