a It h NO. 5221. Our Vienna Coireepoiideme VlBKNA, Alllf 12. 18-19. S.elttr from our Charge at Vienna ? The return of the Kmperor to Vienna?Knthutiatlic Reception ly the People?Civil War in Hungary. I enclore you the within letter, which our minister here. Mr. Stiles, baa furnished iuh with. It shows the atand be liua taken in regard to the interference of the United States government in the affairs of Europe, and it agrees so well with that stated in your own columns, that 1 am cure you will be willing to publish it. letter of hon. w. h. itii.fi, american minister, to thf. journal of vienna. upon the interference of the united states in foreign affairs. u Mr. Editor?By your paper of this morning I am advifed of a movement now progressing ill this city, so unfounded in itself, and so derogatory to tha chariioter of the country which I huve the honor to represent, that 1 feel that I should be wanting in official duty were I to suffer It to pu^s unnoticed and unexposed. " It appears that certain individuals, calling themselves Americans, hare arrived in this city, pretending to have brought from the United States a sum of muney lor tco I uiverslty or \ ienna. and assuming to tender arm* and pecuniary assistance, on the part of 1 that country, to the people of Germany. Now. neither of the** alienations. 1 am constrained to believe, can be tustalned. If tbcy are American citizens, the passports under which they travel will show it?if they have authority from the government of the United States to tinder arms and pecuniary assistance to the Germans, nothing can be easi-r than to produce it; and that they cTen are the agents of the Germans in the city of New Vorh, is susceptible of great doubt? " First. Because, at none of the several public ; meetings in that city- in the Tark, on the ad of April, at Delinonico'e, the 11th April, or at McCullough's sales rooms, on the 15th April, is any mention made 1 of sending money to Vienna ; nor do tho names of , these individuals appear in any of the proceedings. " Second Because, on beard of the steamer Ante- j flea, in which the only one of them, who has probably ever visited the United States, returned to Kurope, nothing was known of his quality as an agent or deputy. " Third, Because he landed in Liverpool on the 22(1 of May, and never reached Vienna for nearly two months thereafter. ' Fourth. Because ho arrived in Vienna on the 28th of June, and did not unburden himself of his money until the 8th of July. ' Fifth, Because be h^s studiously avoided making himself known to the accredited representative of the United States at this court. ''But these allegation* should have passed unno- j tlced, hud they not been derogatory to the character ' of my country, and \ iolative of its cherished princi- | pies and consti nt practice The government of the j United States professes to exist on terms ef amity and friendship with the Imperial government; but eonld she have been guilty of suoh a course as that in which these individuals would involve her, it would have been a violation of the law of nations, treacherous in the extreme, and unworthy of a respectable and honorable nation. "Independent of the reciprocal duties which one established government owes to another, it has been the policy of the United States, from its origin, never to interfere with the domestic concerns of other nations. The motto by which she ever has been guided is that of non-interference ; and while she takes the liberty of establishing such institutions as she may tiiiuk prep", fhe has alwijo u,oiJ, freely accorded the name privilege to others. The citizens, too. of the United States have never been propagandists; and though not indifferent to the extension of human liberty and free government throughout the world, they nave never sought the advancement of these objects by the employment of emissaries, tho contribution of money, or the force of arms. If the free enlightened principles by which our country is governed are ever to be disseminated, It is the opinion of every true American that this should be accomplished alone hi fotev ol peaceful eiamjile. If the example of a country, wkicb, from a dependent colony, has, in aeventy-two years, beeoze one of tho lirst nations of the globe?ftom a population of three millions, has increased to upwards of twenty millions?from a few scattered settlements along the shore of the Atlantic, now embraces almost the whole continent?from a state of oppression and servitude, has come to the enjoyment of a greater degree of civil and religious liberty than exists in any other country?if these ixaceUil triumphs are not sufficient to recommend *o?r principles to the adoption of other countries, then it is certain that neither emissaries, money.-nor arms will be able to effect it, the principles themselves will not be worthy of imitation, and the United States must be content to exist solitary and alone in their exercise and enjoyment. ' Respectfully. &o.. " WILLIAM H. STILUS, " Charge d'Affaires of the U. S. of America. " Vienna. Hth .Inly, 1848." August 13. The return of the Fmperor yesterday to Vienna, Was a circumstance forming a thrilling contrast to his departure, three months since. Then. driTen away by the people, it was compared to the flight of Louis XVI. What a striking contrast did his return yesterday, through the dense mass of thousands who lined the road from Newatadt, two miles from Vienna, where he landed from the Danube, to St. Stephen's Church, in the city, whither he repaired to attend a Te Deum. in honor of the victorious entrance of tbeAustrians into .Milan, offer to that of the return of the unfortunate French monarch. The people cried " Ft rat our loved F.mperor Ferdinand and Kmprcss Maria Ann;" the women and children strewed garlands in his carriage path, and arches of flowers, inscribed with their names, linked with the words ' love of the people," j show their fickleness. They attended him in equal enthusiasm to Schoanbrunn. his summer palace, where ho now is The Kmperor looks crusty, as if he meant to make the people pay for the trouble they have made hiin; but crustier looks his brother Kr&nz Carl, and his Wife, the Archduchess Sophie, the parents of the future Emperor Charles Joseph. She in detested here, and the papers this morning purposely omitted noticing bcr arrival. In Hungary, the civil war rages: and this rivll war is pregnant with great results for the unity of I Austria. The Ban,or Viceroy ot Croatia, has declared to the Anietry of Hungnry that if Austria unites with Germany, under a regent he. with the Schiavonic fitovinces. will unite with Hungary in maintaining her ndependenco against Austria; but if Austria preserves her government pure aDd separate, he will defend the Emperor with the last drop of his blood. Our Berlin Correspondence. Beri.iv, Aug. 14,1S48. Instances of German Political Indecision?Jlffairs of Prussia and Denmark?The .Austrian .Irmy in Italy? German Feeling against Prussia?The Xew Ministry. Of all people the Germans arethe most difficult in deciding upon any inntter, and when they have arrived at a decision, it does tbem no good, because they always believe they ought to have done otherwise, and consequently become distrustful of the whole case. It is for this reason, principally, that the German-" are such bad politicians. Instances to iilustrato this can be given from the history of our times. When the revolution had broken down the system of the old governments, the representatives of tho German nation, alerted hv the neonle. assembled at. Frankfort to settle a form of government and a constitution for the whole of Germany. The main end and object ot this wni to establish a unity of th? whole Gorman people. The public opinion in Germany was then divided on the question, whether all the kings and princes should resign, and the republic be established, or whether an mperor should be elected from the number of the /ornu r and the others abdicate in his favor ? One of these two courses in fact could only he followed for the purpose of obtaining the unity of Germany. A determined resolution from the part of the representntlvi a of the nation and the ptWipie. to follow either course, would at that time have decided the matter at once, and the unity of Germany would have been I established. A want of tlrmness. however, and a d?gr< e of scrupulousness with regard to minor considerations. when the moment of action had arrived, which, perhaps, at such an important epoch, were unparalleled in the history of any nation, have vow occasioned a state of things which gives dissatisfaction to nil parties, and by which constantly the nnfety and quiet of all the States of Germany are endangered Another instance can be given from the more recent events, exhibiting a contusion of ideas and a want of decision in tsking the right view and position with regard to political matters, which is characteristic of the Germans. The reaction which has taken place in favor of upholding the Independence of rrueeia. as a State, and the deinonptrations which have lately and during the past week l>ccn made liy the opposite party against it. will afford the proof of what has been said. Among the oonr.esDions made to the Prussian people from the part of the govornmoni since mo revolution, hip principal were , that the liberty from the oppression of the officers of State In Prusf-la was granted, anil that all the privilege* by which the Prussian military held a position apart ftom the people, and which were so offensive to the latter, have been abolished. Thus the principles of the old State Of Prussia, which had been founded on military institutions, and liad been maintained by the authority of the officer* ?f state, were abandoned and the Prussian State newly modelled, ba? no distinction left from any other Herman State. The dispute, then, which has lately been ?anied on about a special Prussian and a special Herman nationality. Is very absurd, If it is considered, moreover, that the Prussian people are as nearly related with other Herman people as tney are among themselves. The i|Uestton Is only Important with regard to the opinion, whether Prussia Is to unite with Hermany as one State, or to occupy a separate position This has, however, been decided by the great majority of the Prussian people ; but it is remarkable hew, since, the public opinion has ngain turned, and the party which has espoused the Herman cause is daily tnsTtasirg The demonstrations which were made In this city, la the past week, were meant to show that a patriotism for the Herman fatherland still exists. A gr?at procession, with display of the German aolora and flags was held, and a great parade of the Dorlin burgher gnard took place, for the purpose of doing hofmege to the Regent of Hermany. In thy sitting of the 8th Inst., of the Prussian N? E N E MOKP tional Assembly here, a motion by a member wan made and carried, whioh excited great intercut It wan, that tbe oftlcern of the Prussian army should be directed to pledge their word of honor, that they will ask for their dismission if they are dis atislied with the new order of things. The minister of war ba?. however, not yet given tbe order to tbe officer* and it iB stated, on good authority, that be doe* not intend to give it, but will bring the unhjecf again before the National Assembly. If be cannot succeed then to < ffoct a withdrawal of the order, it is r< ported he will give in his resignation. Mr. V. Dolour hna returned from Frankfort, and bis mission to negotiate an armistice between Prussiaand Denmark, has been successful, inasmuch that there ig now great probability that tlie Danish war will be soon ended, us all the German States are desirous for peace. As the conditionR of the armistice, which is to be concluded, it is etatid. that 4 OtiO men. German troops, will keep in possession the duchy of Schleswig-Holstein, and that a force of U WO Danes will occupy a position at A hen The question now is. if the intervention of France and F.ngland will succeed in settling the conditions of a peace between Austria and tbe Italian people, by which the Lcmbaidy will be given free. Only then a psare can be secured, and the danger of an alliance cf Franca with Italy avoided. A private intelligence received to day from Vienna, etatee. from what we consider the best authority, that the Austrian government has been asked by the government of France, in the most decided manner, what will be the course Austria will now follow with respect to Italy ? A messenger ha>. it is further stated been sent to Paris to inform the French government of the following terma of peace, agreed upon by Austria: ?Firstly, all the people of Italy, formerly subjects of Austria, will he given free,except those who desire to remain Austrian subjects. Secondly, the people of Italy take upon themselves a part of the state debt of Austria. Thirdly, a comm roial treaty to be concluded between Austria and Italy Several important questions will now shortly be brought before the Austrian Parliament. On the Uth instant, all the German troops, except the Prussians, did honor to the regent of the empire; and great dissatisfaction exists throughout Germany 4 V... 1 u 4 4 ? ? V.? *.4 .41-..4... I 41... .11 ? -r the German Minister of War The feeling against Prussia, in Germany, is growing stronger as the former, by degrees, takes a more separate position from the other German States. The ministry for Germany is new complete. As prime minister. Prince Luiningen Las leen appointed; for commerce. Duckwitz; for the finances. Beckeratb; for foreign alTairs, Heckscher; for the interior, Schmerling; for justice. Mohl. Only one appointment tor German embassies has been made yet. It is thatof Mr Anerewald. as minister to Russia. The discussions in the German National Assembly haTe lately been very agitated, and have led to the most violent scenes between the different parties of the Assembly in consequence of which feveral duels betw< en members have taken piare The excitement was causidou the question of granting a general pardon to all who had taken part in the attempt to establish the republic in Germany, and who were committed for political crime. One of the members spoke, as it was thought, in a disrespectful manner of the Prince of Prussia, against which the Prussian representatives remonstrated, and a storm was raised in the Assembly which, as it is stated had nearly blown down the church of St Paul, in which the members hold their deliberations. An Amerlean at the Coronation Festivities, at t>outhainptoii, Knglniul. [From the Hampshire (Kng.) Advertiser.] In no part of '.he country could it have been possible to celebrate the anniversary of Her Majesty's coronation with more zeal, liberality, and enjoyment than in Southampton The town bad resolved on making holldny. and most heartily was the resolution carried out. The terrific scenes enacted in another country, and the malignant, though impotent, attempts to foment disorders at hom? p'ade the of Southampton eagerly seize such an opportunity as that presented by the anniversary of Her Majesty's coronation of testifying their loyalty to Queen Victoria. and attachment to the throne and institutions of the country. All business was suspended?every shop was closed, and though The sky * us overcast. The ni oni i r g lew ereil, Anil heavily in clouds brought on the ilsy? the bells poured forth their melody, and thousands of people were to be seen at an early hour hastening to leave upon steam-boat excursions in the channel of the Solent, and railway trips to Winchester, Salisbury, Portsmouth, &c. In Southampton the ancient order of Foresters had a grand celebration, at the beautiful grounds of the Antelope, whence tfiey walked in procession Ihrniirh tho tirinninnl atrvt-fa r?f tVi? fnwti vttli Hairc banners, and music, the offlcera mounted, and attired in forest costume, and the whole of the members having insignia of their craft, and on the return of the pr-refsion to the grounds, they partook of a capital dinner. ?????#? We have spoken, in the above notioe of the celebration. of the nandsome appearance of the Foresters in full costume, and it may not be uninteresting to mary.of those who observed them, to give the authority for their dress, which we extract from ''Todd's Illustrations of (lower and Chaucer:"'? Tlie poet I as been sufficiently minute in the description of the vet man's habiliments. "I concluded." says he. "that ho was a forester, from hi* dress;' which was a coat and hood of green coloured cloth, Undat his belt appeared a shaft of peacock airt w?, that is, arrows plumed with |>eacocks' feathers, according to the practice both of a jircccding and later ago.

The council chamber was tastefully fitted up with flowers, evergreens, flags, and streamers Targett's quadrille hand played in the magistrates' room, and the following gentlemen sat down to dinner:?The Mayor in the chair; on his right, Ii.

Consul of the I'nited States, in connection with the Ocean Steam Navigation Company. That gentleman had been the means of bringing to this port a portion of the trade of America. and of making them more intimately acquainted with their transatlantic brethren. (Great applause.) Mr. Croskf.v, on rising, was received with great and repeated cheering, and begged to return his most sincere thanks for the high compliment they had paid to his country, to himself, and to the interesta he represented. In these days of progress it was no small complement to hare oneself associated in a toast with the giant power of steam?the mighty civllixer of the world?whether as applied to the weaving of fabrics fi r the comfort of mankind, or to the interweaving of the weh rf amity between nrtions?

The X itf(ilali 'Watering Places. [Frt m the London Post ] At Cardigan, on Friday, August 4ih, the following cause closed the assize! It was brought to recover damages against the llev. Percy Byrahe Harries, Rector of Corby, near Rockingham, and holding a similar living in the parish of I)ean<* in Northamptonshire, for a breach of promise" of inairiage. Damages were laid at ? 1,0(10 The Learned Serjeant, in stating the case, said the jilaintill was Mies Mary Saunders, daughter of the late Rev. John Saunders, a clergyman of the Church of England, of the highest respectability, formerly residing at Bettws Lodge, in ine county of Monmouth, and vicar of the parishes of Llantrissent and Llanhowell. He was no more; and his daughter was an unprotected I lady, since she had lost her parents and never had I any brothers or sisters. As they had heard, the defendant was a clergyman of the Church offing land, and he regretted that circumstances would compel him, in ihe exercise of his duty, to urge it in aggravation of the flagrancy of n is conduct. The Rev. defendant had for the last eight or ten yeurshad beenan inhabitant of Aberystwith,wither he repaired to recruit his shattered health. The plaintiff,being in delicate health,was directed by her medical adviser to repair to that fashionable resort, in the hone that she might derive strength from its salubrious air. She induced a young lady of the name of Jones to accompany her, and also a young lady named Smith. The latter left in the course of a month, but Miss Saunders extended her slay at Aberystwith. In October last she attracted the attention of the 11 ev. defendant, who frequently met her in the course of her walks. He, then, influenced by an attraction which he could not resist, having been impelled by that inexplicable problem?love at first sight, resolved to' visit her. lie accordingly sent her the following epistle :? "Madam?If pardon can bo conceded for intrusion may I venture to ask it of you ? There la a general principle among strangers at watering places of intioducirig and being introduced to each other. I shall plead this privilege in my behalf, and add to it the impossibility rf becoming introduced to you by participation in the public amusements, and that 1 havo no knowledge of a fit person to act aB a friend in the case. Having ('remised thus far. I beg to place in your band a carle blanche of introduction, and await your pleasure in moking use of it, and I trust that this mode of giving power to the lady cannot offend against delicacy, although it may appear at first sight to encroach rather too much upon the bounds of etiquette. " I beg to remain, Madam, your devoted servant, " P. B. HAItRlES "Alfred place, Aberystwith, Oct. 23,184*7." The learned serieant then remarked that this a Cf Wia8 tIellverc" on tlie Saturday, and the plain ?v uuuuc wi ii. ii nit- luuowing lues- | day the K?v. ueienuant presented himself at the your" lady's iodgings, and was admitted to an interview with her in the presence of Miss Jones. An intimacy then commenced between the parties, and he paid her daily visits ; and a few days afterwards he sent her the following letter, in which he tendered her his hand and fortune : "My dear Mies Saunders?In personal attractions, in rase and elefranc* and accomplishments? in kindness and cheerful temper, you have not an equal; and if there be any other social qualities requisite to constitute domestic happiness, 1 believe that you possess them in nn eminent degree. Let me now, in my own straightforward .way. place my situation before you, that you may at once see what prospect you may have of continuing that happiness you so well deserve. It has ever been my wish to keep a good establishment rather than an empty show. Comfort before elegance, and utility ralher than fashion. My income is church propei ty. and therefore departs with my life. Excuse me if I look on the da"Vk side of the future. I assure you that such anticipation is calculated rather to make the bright look brighter, and with God's blpssing there may be golden daya and much real unmingled bliss in a rich comp?tenry.

" Alfred-place, Oct. 27. 1847." He (Mr. Serjeant Jones) would here remark that during his frequent visits the plaintiff abstained from giving bun any encouragement as a suitor, and he read another warm epistle, written by the defendant to her, which tended to prove what he hud stated. Without wearying thejury. however, lie (the learned eerjeant) would briefly mention that the defendant, by his assiduity and incessant application, succeeded in persuading the plaintiff to nn enuneement. He tHen increased his attentions. Wnen it was fine thev walked out together. and when it was wet they played chess or read in company. The defendant occasionally indulged in poetry to induce the plaintitfto yield to nis solicitation. The following was a specimen : " Mary, plight thy love to me, 1 will pledge my faith to thee ; Good or ill. whatever betide. Let us never more divide." On another occasion, he sent her a long effusion, commencing? " Tell me, Mary, how to woo thee, Kind and gentle as thou art; How declare my lovo unto thee, Iiow bare the secret of my heart"' The learnc^-counsel proceeded. Tune waxed on, and the defendant becnme exceedingly anxious that the marriage should be celebrated forthwith ; but Misb Saunders, with great propriety, would not suffer it to take nlace until twelve months had elapsed from the death of his first wife. At length the wedding-day was fixed forthefith of April, and matters progressed hnrmonieusly till the 2<ith of February, when the tender swain became metamorphosed into a wretched brute. lie first evinced it by charging the plaintill with being head over heels in debt?with being drunken, old, and ugly, on the faith of anonymous letters. He then showed his tiue character, und snatched from her some presents he had given her?a gold watch and chain, and other things?and made his escape. He returned in the course of halt an hour, conducted himself very viol;ntly, and intimated his determination not to marry her. He (Serjeant Jones) considered there could not be a more cruel case, and he trusted that the jury would give a iust amount of damages for so unmanly a breach of promise. Miss Kt.iza Jones, and Beveral other witnesses wpre called, who proved the learned Serjeant's statement. Mr. Kvanb, Q. C., addressed the jury for the defendant. He said there was no doiiht the defendant had made an eneairoment nml bad broken it. and lie must take the consequence ; but the jury would put out of the question all injury to the affections, by reason of the plaintiff's loss of an old man who had .St. Vitus'a dance. (Laughter.) The learned judge then summed up, and the jury found for the plaintiff?damages, JtlOO.

Karl Orey defended the grant, on the ground that it was the matt effectual mode of preventing ' squatting" from America, which in a short time, would place the practical pctteition of the island in the hands of the United States. He asserted that the Hudson's Bay Company were better prepared to colonise the island than other parties, and that the most ample security had been taken for the proper government of the colony, and Its resumption by the crown at the end of eleven years, on equitable terms, if deemed necessary Hetnllatorjr Postage.

Notice being given of the motion, the defendant. O'Reilly, appeared, by hid counrel, Hon. Henry I'i'tle, Wm Y. Gholaon, Esq., of (. incinnati, and Mr. C. Johndon. Eaq . Attorney General of Kentucky, and produced hi* anawer to the bill of complainants. accompanied by an additional affidavit, incorporating sundry documente. extractafrom scientific periodicala, newapapers. affiilavita, all which were r<ad and considered, without objection aa their com- j petency. The motion waa made on the 24th Auguat. and a deciaion thereon given on theDth Sept. The complainants were represented by IV S. Loughborough, Eiq., District Attorney, Hon. A. K. Woolley, and Hon. lien. MODree I he reading of the pleadings, and'exhlbifs. ami affidavits, fkc., occupied seven days, and the dirnoMOD eight days 'J be utmost range of objection was taken by the defendants' counsel. It waa conceded that Morae wua not the in venter of the telegraph; that Professor Steinhell. of Munich, in (ieruiany. had. prior to Moraa'a application for a patent, invented, and put in operation, an electric telegraph; that the combined circuits which appear in Morse'a first patent were not invented by him: that Ldward Davy, of London, had obtained a patent in England for an eloctric telegraph, operating by ocmbined circuits; and that Morae had obtained the idea from Davy, and on his return from Europe, in 1839, had interpolated, the principle of the combined circuit, in his specifications, made under his application, filed in the patent office in 1838, before he went to Kurope, and upon vhlch altered specification h<s first patent, was issued in June. 1840. Various objections were taken to the validity of Morse's first patent and to the re-Issues thereof in 1846 and 1848, as well as to bis patent for an improvement upon hia original invention, issued in April, 1846, and the re-issues theriofin June, 1848. Among the objections urged to the main patent wore: ? 1st. The alleged alteration of the specification, -d The effect of Morse's having obtained a patent in France, for tba name invention, in August, 1838. 3d. That 111* specifications claimed a monopoly of tbe use of tbe galvanie current for reeording at a distance by machinery, other than that specified In bia patent. 4tli. 1 hat Morse claimed, aa part of bia patented rights. a system of signs for au alphabet, net properly tlie subject matter ot a patent. In regard to the patents for the improvements, it was. among other things, objected, 1st That they covered a part of tbe subjects included In the first pati uts, being, in that vltw. an attempt to extend the pi rod of tbe monopoly. 2d. That the new patents did not siifllclently distinguish what was the improvement frtm what was embraced in tbe main patent. 3d. Tbat no patent could issue to a patentee for an improvement upon his own Invention. 4th. That some part of the improvement bad bees In public use prior to the application for a patent, with the consent of the patentee. Ma^y other objections were urged by tbe defendant*' counsel. In wfav i- it. . ... - - ._ . uce 10 me imringement, it was contenilPd "* >ne defendants, that the Columbian telegraph used by them, said to have been the invention of Barnes & Zook, was a distinct independent invention, and its ufp no violation of Morse's patented rights On the part of the complainants, it was insisted that the evidence showed that Morse invented the telegraph as early as 1832, and perfected and exhibited it in January. 183C ; that he invented and put in operation, early in 1837, the combined circuit ; that Steinbell'a telegraph invention was not published until September, 18118, and. tbat there was no evidence that it was invented prior to that of Morse, and whenever invented, it is not the telegraph whioh was patented to Mono ; that, as to the combined circuit, embraced in the patent of Davy, under which his specifications were enrolled on the 4th of January, 1831*, they were embraced in Morse's patent from the French government. granted in August, 1838, from which Davy might have obtained the idea. As to the validity of the patents it was insisted that none of the otyections taken by the defendants were | available. And as to the infringement, it was contended by complainants that the machine used by defendants was a violation both of the principle and process embraced in Morse's^atant. Tbe apparatus of Morre, and that claimed as the invention of Barnes & Zook, oalled the Columbian Tclegr?pb,were exhibited before tbe Judge, and folly examined, and tbe affidavits of scientific men read. Explanations were made by Mr. Barnes and Professor Morse. The Judge occupied several hours in delivering his opinion, in which he stated tbe different points made by counrel as well on behalf of the claim to an injunction as the ctyeclions of tbe defendant's counsel. Astotne invention, he decided tbat tbe evidence was satisfactory to his mind that Morse was the true and original inventor of the telegraph?that the only evidence in regard to Steinhell's invention, (without considering whether it was tbe same as Morse's or not,) was a publication upon bis authority in September,1838, in which be stated tbat be had built his line of telegraph from Munich to Bourgenbausen, a distance of six miles, which bud been in operation without repairs for more than one year. In regard to the principle of theoombined circuit, he was also satisfied that it was invented by him early in 1837. Davy's specifications of his invention not being enrolled earlier than January, 1839, after the Issue of Morse's French patent, in which the principle was dis closed. As to the alleged alteration in the specification Id Morse's first patent, though alleged by defendant in his answer, the evidence failed to establish It: and any question as to the effect of such alteration dia not therefore arise, and, if proved, he was not prepared to say that it would vitiate the patent. As to the supposed effect of the patent issued in France upon the patents subsequently issued in this country, none could be perceived, unless the position contended for by defendants'counsel, that the application for the patent in this country was altered, and that it should take the date of the alleged alterations, or. of the request of Morse to issue the patent on his return ftom Kurope, could be sustained But if these positions could be sustained, the question would then arise, what would be the effect upon tho patent issued for fourteen years, and whether its effect would not be only to limit tho operation of the patent to the period of fourteen years from the date of the French patent. As to the general claim in the main patent of Morse, he did not consider the objections of tho defendants well grounded ; and, even if it were too broad, it did not srem to him that tho effect upen the validity of the patent would be such as the counsel for defendants contended. Other objections taken *by defendants' counsel to the valldiiy of tho patents wero noticed, and each overruled L'pon Ihe question of infringement, tho judge expressed himself as fully satisfied that the Instruments exhibited by the defendants, in its struoture and mode of operation, violated the principle of Morse's patent, and the process and means described by Morse in bis spicificatlons; and, if the general claim of I Morse was invalid, still he was of opinion that infringement was made out. As to the alleged prior use of some things in Morse's second series of patents, he did not find in the evl donee anything to warrant the conclusion that it had been of such character as to effect the validity of the I patents. As to the propriety of granting the injunction, it 1 set mod to him upon the whole case that the complainants had shown such ground as required ; that it ! should be awarded, first, because they had shown a possession acquiesced irvfor a long time by the public at Isrge and for some time recognized and acquiesced in by the defendant, O'Reilly himself; and. that it would be as unjust to refuse an Injunction on a case clearly showing a right, as it would be to grant it in a case where no right was shown. The judge said that in some cases he had given to the defendants leave to continue the use of the machine, which was alleged to be used in violation of a patented | rirbt of complainant, upon giving bond and security to account for the profit of the use ; but that in this cause he did not deem it Droper to do so, and that an abso. lute Injunction would be awarded upon complainants' giving bond and security in the penalty of $6,000, with j condition to indemnify defendants against any injury that might accrue to them in case complainant should fail to have the iniunntinn rnriu>tn>t>il Ininnetlnn absolute awarded Common Council.

At this motion, Assistant Alderman Hibbard.of the second, rose and opposed the concurrence in a long speech, at the conclusion of which, It appears his associates were about as much enlightened as they were before, but nearly two hours were spent in jumping up and down, under the Ave minute rule ; when a motion was made to pass the previous question, the other members becoming completely out of patience at the unnecessary delay, this motion was carried and the report concurred in, and in order to prevent any further delay in business, nnd long speeches from the Assistant Alderman of the second.
