E It kituwu that I, the aubacrlber oi> , , tained Idlers patent in December, lb51, tor nil upparatua for the destructive distillation oJ WOO a. aud tbe making therefrom of tar or pitch at pleasure, and gun j and that in the judguieut ol competent persons the luvention of au a p par tita recently pateuted by W. IX Porter cannot W used by him or any other person without infring ing my caid patent. Ana, further, that what m patented by said Porter rightfully belongs to me, as I expect to prove ere long before the United Stales 1'iHcut Office ; aud, further, that the use of suid Porter's invention involve# also a process which I am now claiming before the United States Patent Office, and which has been adjudged to he patentable to the first inventor thereof, and which said W. D. Porter has formally diacluimed. as ap pears upon tbe public records of said office, of which au offioial copy is hereto annexed, and also a copy of his claims. In.the National Intelligencer of tbe 25th instant Mr. Port?y announces that he has secured by patent the "exclusive right to making gaslVom wood," and threatens prosecution to all parties infringing his patent. I aak how this statement '?optports with the fact of my patent of December, rt5l, aud how far the threat emn 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 claim was at first refused as interfering wilh a prior patent to Robert Foulis, of Canada, for an equivalent contrivance. This claim, as given be low, and in which tbe perforated diaphragm is the Having clause, is what Mr. Porter calls securing the "exclusive right to making gas from wood. The statement carries absurdity on its lront, and is a libel on the good sense of the Patent Office If such a claim or right had been granted, it would forbid every coal-kiln and charcoal manulactory in the country. The following copies of correspondence and extracts from the records of the Patent Office will show the true state of the ease: Unitk* States Patent Office, August 25, 1854. Sir . in reply to your letter of this date, asking " if any patent has been granted to W. D.

D. Porter, under his application for a patent, which letters patent were issued bearing the above dale, you are informed that W. D.

Oiplea of the Democratic party of tU UnUtd St.u,? menTofih Pf^PO"" l? he lhe (>r^un of ?Y Depart Governn,? ?t' >n ?o faras an in dependent maintenance of the doctrine* of that vfew. Mpre**nt ?? opinion* and express us It will not be ambitious to conun >id itself to the people by * blind flattery of their ruler#. It will ?eek public kipport.by the bold avowal of tn? aeutimenta 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 rx? (and it will endeavor to deserve the title) the* o?s?n of the Ren^ -ratic party of th? Unite-! ?States. The Sentinel will maintain, as a fun dame nt 1 truth of that great party, that the States formed the u nion between them by the ratification of the Con - stitution as a compact; by which, also, thev created the Federal Government, and delegated 'o u, aw 'heir common agent, the |K>wers expressly specified in it, with an explicit reservation of all others to the States, or to their separate govern ments. The exercise of any powers beyond thes thus delegated, is, therefore un usurpation of the reserved authority of the States l.y the itren? .,t their own creation. The Sentinel will uphold and defend the Union upon the basis of the rights of the States?under the Constitution?and thus by sedulously guarding the iatter, it will the more effectually ??'remrthen and perpetuate the former. With regard to the exercise of the powers ol the re<.eral Government, the Sxntinel will take as the } rinciple* of itfc action, that Congress ^halj t*x ercis^ no power which has not be<;n delegated l.y the C. nstitution, according to a strict and fair in-. -tion of its language and spirit; and that it shall nt seek to attain indirectly an objectthrough the exei -ise of constitutional power, for the direct attainme t of which it has no delegatU)n*of porrrr. In other words, nil [towers exercised must be clearly gra ted, and all granted powers must be used for no uirpose, except such a? is clearly in tended by th Constitution. In respect to the internal administration of the Government, the Sentinel will sustain the settled jKjlicy of the Democratic party. It will labor to inculcate this cardinal doctrine of Democratic in ternal policy:?that this Government will best promote the freedom and prosperity of the people of the States, by being less ambitious to exercise |>ower, and more anxious to preserve liberty; and by leaving to the individual States the manage inent 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 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 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, ujton each occasion demanding attention will be its guide in the course the Sentinel wil pursue. The nntional policy of the world in this age is essentially aggressive. In the growing sense ol weakness of some of the nationsofthe Old World, and the ambitious restlessness of others, a com mon motive to colonial extension has developed U.lf 4 . Our settled determination tc repel interference from abroad with our domestic concerns, wil prom|?t us to avoid it in the affairs of other coun tries, unless by their foreign or colonial policy our peace shoul^ l>e threatened, our security endan gered, or our interests invaded. For when the ?elfish interests of other nations prompt a foreign I or colonial policy which infringes upon our rights and placea la the pathway of our commerce a' dangerous and unfriendly rival, such a policy must be resisted by remonstrance, and, if need be, ky war. ' Our foreign policy shouid. indeed, l>e defensive, but to lie properly defensiv?. it must sometimes be apparently aggressive. Our administration should be vigilant, watchful, and energetic. The world is full of important movements, commercial and politifjil, deeply concerning American trade and American power. It is time we had an Ainericau 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 a continent, with no neighbors but a colony, and a worn-out, anarchical despotism. We are the olny people whose own land, without colonial de fendenciea, is washed by the two great oceans ol the world. Our agricultural productions are more varied and more essential to civilized life, and t? human progress?our mineral and manufacturing resources more vast?our facilities and capacity for internal and foreign comrrierce more extended than those of any other people living under one government. A continent, to a great extent, un explored and exhauatless in its yet hidden wealth is at our feet. European trade seeks the great East through avenues which are at our doocs, or mu?t be made through our own limits. Europe, Asia, Africa, and the isles of the wea. 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 ings of liberty, civilization, and Religion, are des tined to triumph over the barbarism and .supersti tion of the millions ef the world. And shall such ? 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 ao laden with responsibility, which, if properly directed, must make our confederacy the harbinger of peace to the world, as well as the peaceful arbiter of its destiny. The 8*irriN*L will, therefore, advocate a hold and earnest foreign polity, such as the condition of 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 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 is wrong. It must be liberal and magnanimou- to the rights of others, and firm and immoveable in insisting on its own. It must, in fine, l?e true to lis own interest*, rights, and honor it cannot UMfl be fal*e 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 at democratic principles we shall cordially support ? n<l defend. Its enemies in the field or in ambush we shall oppose, and on all proper occasion- de nounce. * To our future brethren of the press we extend the hand of friendly greeting. The Sentinel is th. rival of no press of its own parly?the i?er*onal enemy of none ofthe other. The present Democratic Administration has our Ijest wishes for its success in the establishment of the great principles upon which it came into power and in its honest labors to attain such an. end it will find the Sentinel its friend and coadjutor. ? - 1'i - T ATKK YEAR*, r?y the Author of ?? the Old House by the River.n Mr. Rutherford's Ch ldren, second volume, l'ebbles from the Lake Shore, or Miscellaneou?

May 17?lwd , 1 prospectus.?south ernconser I vative Magazine.?When new aspirants lor popular favor are announced, the public have a risrht to demand the grounds upon which such show of title to their patronage i* made. In ac knowledgment of this, we trace the customs of pnrtie- in the avowal of principles; of religions sects, in the promulgation of creeds; and of 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 nting, though soimtimes abused, are useful and proper, and should not lie discarded. And ,when, in obedience to custom, new plans are proposed, tho??? approving ought not to withhold their en couragement, as too many do, until they ?ee that suceeM ? Mm. t!>r ineir """y "d 10 secure it. Such a foolish policy jeopar dizes the plan they approve, and hastens its luilure ; it has defeated mauy important enterprises, and has deprived the country of good and useful work*. If a new proposiMon of any kind is approved by the public, the support of those approving is of right expected, their approval being solicited only i? the view that their more substantial aid will not be withheld. ap tup* BRIEF OUTLINE OF THE PLAN OF THL PROPOSED PERIODICAL. The Soithek* Conservative Magazixk will occupy gritunds but little cultivated by American mauazinists. It is believed that a field is open for a periodical of a new and, in some respects, a higher order than has been aimed at in our maga zine literature. In this belief, and with such an aim, we announce the Southern Conservative MT^he"new magazine will be natiotal and not sectional; claiming no merit by virtue of 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 lufidelity on the other-laboring in its teach ings to advance a closer union between the several branches of the great family of the church. It will be political: but liberal; owing no slavish allegiance to parties or politicians, it wi I > measures, not men, and will labor only for tf?| success of principles. . It will bi progressive, yet aternly opined to the reckless spirit of innovation so rife in the country?aiming to elevate and advance, not de pres,; to reform and improve, not to destroy , sacredly adhering to the true intent of our greet republican theory, and laboring to advance it to its fullest development. It will be truly American in tone and sentiment, but will repudiate nothing foreign, merely because so: believing that the good, the useful, and true belong not, par excel'ence, to any favored people, but are the common right of all. It will l?e the organ of pure conservatism. It will encourage a high-toned literature, amr defend pure morals in all the social relatione of 11 And it will number in it* corps of regular con tributors some of the ablest political and literary writers of the country. Trie 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 .*) large octavo pages, made up of original article*, con tributed and editorial ?reviews, political and scientific essays, romances, poetry, ?c. We promise much for the new magazine, and j we intend to perform it all, and mose, if the read ing public will give the enterprise a liberal en i conragement. TK11MS OF SUBSCRIPTION. The Southern Conservative Magazine will be issued the first of each month, from the office of publication, Nashville or Knoxv.lle, Tennessee, and will be furnished to suscril>ers at fonr dollars a year, or three dollars if paid punctually in ad vance.
