Attoisit General's Office,) 30th of August, 1848. jj Hon. JaMki Buchanan, Secretary of State? Sih ;?1 have the honor to reply to your letter, submitting an inquiry propounded by the commissioner of patents, whether a foreign patentee can go behind ,,r Uim nn.l mara t h a* ?/>* ? ! data of his invention, in order to defeat tha right* of an ARirrioan inventor, there having been no previous description ot the invention in any printed publication ; or in other word*, whether the fact of an invention or discovery abroad, which had not been patented nor described in any printed publication, will defeat a patent to an original inventor, who has invented or discovered the game thing in thU country. The answer to be given to this enquiry depends upon the act of Congrt a*, 4th of Jnly, 1830, when the patent laws of the United States underwent a revision, and several important provisions were for the first time introduced. By the sixth rection it is enaeted. " that any person or persons, having discovered or invented any new or useful art, machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, ur any new and useful improvement in any art. machine, manufacture, or composition of matter, not known or used by others before his or their discovery or invention thereof, and not at the time of his application for a patent in public use or on sale, with his oonsent or allowanoe, as the iaventor or discoverer, and thall desire to obtain an exclusive property therein, may make application in writing to the crmmis?ioner of patents, expressing such desire, and the commissioner on due proceedings had. may grant a patent therefor." The same section provides, that " the applicant ehall make oath or affirmation that he dees verily believe that he is the original or first in >eniur, ur uiocuvorrr ui iup tub. wauuiur, vwui|iu3ibiun. or improvtment, for which he solicits a patent, and that he does not know or believe that the same wan ever before known or used, and alse of what country he is a cititen " . Thus far the law is left substantially as it stood before ; and if net accompanied by any new provi*' ong would be controlled by previous adjudications '0nnd?d in a considerable degree upon enactmer',, ^ow be_ come obsolete. But the seventh section introduces a new rule, which seems to be deoislv, of the quegtlon nnder consideration " declare; that on tfce filing of any such application, defjription and Bpecl?oatton, and the payment of the duty hereinafter provided, the commissioner shs^t make or cause to be made, an examination of th-^ new iaT?ntlon or diaeovery ; and If, on any saor, Application, it shall not appear to the eomciUsion^f^ that the same bath been invented or discovery, any other person in thl? country, prior to the, alleged invention or discovery thereof by the M^rlcant, er that It had been patented or described in *ny printed publication in this, or any foreign county or bad been in publlo use, or on sale, with the ' applicsnt's consent or allowance, prior to the application; if the oommlssiiner shall deem it to be sufficiently useful and Important, it sh? 11 be his duty to issue a patent therefor ." The rale here prescribed to the commissioner, is afterwards re-affirmed and carried out in the form of a proviso, in the fifteenth section, providing a rule of adjudication, namely. " That whenever it shall satisfactorily appear that the patentee at the time of making his application, believed himself to be the first Inventor or dixeoverer of the thing patented, the same shall not be held to be void, on account of the Invention or disoevery, or any part thereof, having been before known, or used in any foreign country, If not appearing that the same, or Any substantial past thereof, had been before patented or described in any printed publication." While, therefore, the sixth section declares, that a patent shall Issue to the inventor, (all other conditions being compiled with) if the thing proposed to be sheared bad not" been invented, or disoovered by any otber pen-on In this country," the proviso of the fifteenth section enacts that the patent shall not be held veld, (all otber conditions being complied with) on aeonunt of the Invention or discovery, or any part uiereui, amug ucvu mivn muvwu vi mcii <U aU/ foreign country." Tbrnc provisions introduce an Important modification of the law of patents designed to protect the American inventor against the injustice of being thrown out of tb? fruits of his ingenuity, by the existence of a secret, invention or discovery abroad. That is to aay, one not patented, and not described in any printed publication. It is well known that such accrete of trade exist 1a great numbers, designedly withheld from the publio ; and when, therefore, the American inventor has been so fortunate as to invent or discover the same thing, he is as great a public benefactor, as if the secret did not exist in any foreign country ; and it was the int?ntien of Congress to secure to bim his rightful property in the result, and not permit it to be defeated by the foreign inventor, ecmlog forward afterwards, either for a patent, or without a patent There ia no more reasonable or just foundation, or title of property, than that whioh has been so imperfectly secured by law in the produots of Bind; and it ia to b? regarded as the presumed intention of the legislator, effectually to secure It, where the reason of the law will apply, and the language nsed will admit of a favorable interpretation. In the present case the Intention is clear, and th? language expl iolt and unequivocal, leaving no room for construction. The proviso, without the aid of the sixth section, fnrnhbes.a clear rule of adjudication, by which the rights of parties are ascertained ; and it is impossible that an executive officer should regard that as an objection to the grant of a patent, which the oourta of law arc bound to overrule as unavailable. The objection, therefore, which is now preriMlted. that an original bona fide Inventor in tbla country, who verily believed himself the original or first disooverer, at the time of bis application, and did not know or believe that hlj invention or discovery was aver before known or used ; and when, In fact, it bad not been before Invented or discovered by any other person In this country, and had not Itself, or any substantial part of It, been before patented, or desorlbed in any printed publication in any country, that the American inventor in sueh a esse is not entitled to a patent for bis dif covery, because it had been before known or naed in a foreign oountry, la diraotly opposed to the Intent, the policy, and the express words of the act of Congress, and Is without any legal foundation. In suoh a case the American Inventor is. In contemplation of law, under the provlsicns or the act of Coagrera, the original and first inventor. Th? fact that an invention not patented and not described In any printed publication, ha.i been In-fore known or nsed in any foreign oountry, ia rendered Immaterial except so far as it may have come to the knowledge of the spplieant. and may thus conflict with the oath or affirmation which he Is required to take, or with hla 'aims aa an original Inventor. If he is an original inventor, and is in a condition to take the oath or affirmation prescribed, then tlieaot removes the supposed objection out of the way. requires the commissioner to isane the patent, the courts to declare It valid, and establishes the American right, to the exclusion of the foreign discovery; wh'ah has not, in either mode indicated by the act of Congress, been communicated to the public. I have the nonor to be. Very respectfully, sir, Vour obedient aervant, ISAAC TOUCEY. It thus appears that we have only Morae and House left to occupy the telegraphic ground in this country. Popular Kclnratloit In the Weat? An address, on the subject of popular education in the West, was latt night delivered in the Oliver street church, l>y ex-Governor ylade, of Vermont. He said :?ft is not my purpose togive, this evening, a formal discourse upon thf subject of education, but to make a practical discourse. I an sat it (led that eveiy man knows what education is; and we are to impure here what is to be done 1 Shall we lie idle on this subject, when there are so many who need moral and intellectual education! It is our duty to know that we should do something, hnd find where our labors will be most useful. In Ne w York and New I 'ngland, we have all the blessings of eduoation. We hav? our churchesi: but such is not the casr with the whole world. There is great effort needed for our own country. 1 say thiB emphatically, distinguishing our own country from the other nation* of the earth, though we should, and do feel for the whole world, aad abould be glad to *ee the hrathen where we have sent our mUn'onailea ; but In directing our effort*, we may be mistaken The valley of the Ml*xi?*lppl need* our aid ; and If we leave that people without tbe mean* of 1 due*'loo, the evil* of bewthentum may orercome us and our Inititutlon* If we would aot for the moral benatit of the world, we should first think of our own country, that we auiy make It an Intellectual and moral country?that every me , woman and child, may meet re Christian eduoation ?that we may become the light of tha nation* of the world Two eanturles and a quarter ago, ?od sent the Turltans?men sent by God - and they lauded on the rook of Plymouth, where they flourished If the eolony had been planted In the valUy of the Mlttlsslppl, It would bay* died ; but M was |.l*nt? don tha rock-girt ahora of Plymouth, where It (IcuiUhed, and Kiw Knglaud ha* been trained; anj l \ E NE MORN It is now our duty to aid the West. The Yalley of the Mississippi hiin tncivacKd in a greater ratio of late year*, than baa New England. The State of Wisconsin baa increased witb great rapidity, and I barn no doubt but it will become the empire State of the Union. I shall not nee it, but there are aoaie here who doubtless will. Look at the city of Mllwaulkie la 1840, that oity had about 800 inhabitant*, and hai grown until it now numbers almost 20 000, .no re than can be aaid of any city in the country Beside* our own, there will probably be 400,000 foreigners who will Aftma tn mip shrtMi Hurinv tha was* Iftifi mi\mt nf whnm go to tbe Welt. I it* a calculation in a newspaper, the other day, about tbe influence of foreigners upon tbe ballot box. Tbat calculation stated that the number of male adulta whieh came to this oountry was 300 000, three-fifths of whom, 180.000, will become voters. There were 6(10 000 native born oitizeps, only one h itf of whom are males; and supposing that one half of that number die in infanoy. it will leave 150,090 natives, to 1?0,000 foreigners who become citizens Some persons are opposed to allowing foreigners the privilege of tbe ballot box until they have been here twenty-on* years, t am not one of that ?nrt of people, and gladly welcome all who come to us, when they are driven from their homes by famine and oppression, though I would wish them to be here a reasonable time before having the privileges of the ballot box. Our own young meu emigrate to the West, and from a calculation mads, a single Sabbath sohool In my own State, Vermont, has furnished over forty. We are training up emigrant* for the West, who will show tbe IwneSts of eduoation. The re was a society formed in Ohio, some years a^o, and which I have been connected with for two years, s agent, whose biuinesa it is to find where teachers are needed in the West, and furnish them. Within the rast two years we have sent one hundred and ten ? Tbey are all females, who are required to submit to an examination before thev are sent, and we endeavor to retail them of the different religiousHects. I would I'ko to ray something here of the fearful increase of Romanism in the West. They are milking evtry effort, by teachers: and where they get the money, I (hall not now ear.

They will go any where make money; they will go through fire and water to make a fortune; but how far will they go to do good? T1 ere women will do more good. They have an influence upon theoommunity in which they mingle,which men cannot. You see, from the extracts from the letters whioh I have read, what kind of teachers we have.

City Intelligence. T.rtt We a thh.?Yesterday was a most delightful cay, resembling more the appearance of May than that of the closing of November. The sky was clear, and the air balmy and healthful. Dkstbuctiow to Turkeys.?To day. of all others of the year, is the most destructive to the turkey tribe. Every son of New England who has taken up his abode in Ootham, haa been careful to procure one for to-day. and will render thanksgiving by aiding in the mastication of one of the unfortunate fowls. For the paft week they have commanded the highest price, and ever> beer house has nightly been the soene of ra'tlling operations for the game. Pumpkin pies are in great demand, and it is probable there will be considerable eating without ever thinking of the mercy of Him who gave it, or giving thanks other than that which is customary when the receiver is asked .to have " another small piece"?not the peace which has blessed the country; for many, are oareless whether there be peace with the world, or bloodshed on the battle-field. The Citv Railroad ?The City Railroad frequently fires place to scenes amusing ridiculous, and revoitng. It is one of the great principal means for transporting humanity from one extreme of this great city to the other. The cars are not propelled by steam, other than that which i? generated by corn and nay, and frequently the motive power is of such a character that one is led to suppose he has ridden several miles, when, in fact, !" la only a few blockB from the starting point. When a car leaves the terminus at either end of the line, there is generally not more than half-adozen passengers ; but they gather at almoat every block, until it Is jammed almost to suffocation. Here, then, is a company composed of every variety of character, from the son of honor and fame, to the daughter of shame and infamy. To each car is an agent, whose duty it is to collect the fare, and administer in every possible way to the aoasfort of his passenger*. Many of those wno ride on this line are yearly subscribers, while others ride every day, who pay up ? sixpence for ouch rift* Onn nf thu l*.ttar in n.n ftM IriIt. iimfc tthnnfc as large as two ordinary person*, who invariably ha* a basket on her arm, and ushers from Centre market, and if the ear does not stop at the moment, the agent is sure to <et a "little bit of her mind," as the term is, j bnt which usually turn* out to be a considerable , blowing up. She Is known to all the agents, and every one of them seem awed at her very appearanee. A few days since she rode with one of these agents, and on* of considerable oelebrity for his politeness especially to the ladies. As she approached his car. he jumped from the platform and offered assistance, when the old lady turned and looked at him. That look was sufficient. H? stood, paralyzed as It were, before her, and did not move hand or foot nntll she was safely seated. Of a lively disposition, and generally neatly attired in black, with a delicate gold chain extending from the button hole of the vest, and a smile always on his countenance, be has become a particular favorite with the ladies, many of whom will ride with no other agent. He may be often seen, whon standing alone on the platform of his car, indulging 1 in theatrical gesl urea, and if he Is approached, may be beard to quote some sentence of a deep tragedy, which he has learned by visiting tbe theatres. He Is under all circumstances a happy fellow. But leave him, and in a few moments another will make his appearance. He is a man of middle age. and seems wrapt in deep meditation, as if endeavoring to solve mentally some difficult problem in algebra. His countenance has a melancholy cast, and never seen to smfle. Speak to him, and ten to one if be hears the voice addressed to him, except the expression touches upon some point of education. la a moment, then, his ccuntenanee lightens up, and his mind reverts to tbe time when, in the days of his earlier manhood, among the snow-capped hills of New Kngland. be u taught the young idea how to shoot.'* His whole s&ul is at once filled with the subject, and be discourses fluently upon the proper mode and beauties of instruction. He is met by another, and there seems to be tome difficulty in the car of his friend, about the fare of some of tbe passengers ; but as tbe driver only has a black eye. passes on. There is trou b!e brewing, hovever. The last mentioned agent has refractory passenger or tw?, who refuse to par, but being of a gentle tnrn of mind, he pooketa his hand, and fays no more, rresently the refusing passengers approach him. and before he in aware of their proximity, one of them deals him a blow, which ataggera him. lie turns aronnd, and in an inatantthe blood of the lion is up, when he takes the chances to come out aeoond beat, and in another instant the trio are proatrate on the ground. He atruggles bard, and bj the aid of irme pedeatrian who la passing at the time, relievea bimaelf of bia troubleaome friends, and like Chapman in victory, orows Another, of ordinary stature, seem*, too, to have tome trouble. He bM a man In hia car who teems to have been to the fount of Bacchus, and has fallen asleep, with bis feet stretceed across the floor, over which a lady, who is just entering, atumbles. Porseaced of many of the polite qualities of the one flrrt named, to the comfort of the ladies, he immediately rings the bell, marshals all his atrength, and puts the sleeping man In the street. He ia careful to be ahraya prepared, and wears his hair and whiskers olosely crop, ped. that they may not serve aa a halUr to lead him to defeat. Among them ia a regular Jonathan, from the vllds of Connecticut. Unlike many of the othera. he isofaaurly disposition, and rarelv looks pleasantly upon any one. In his eye, the ladles are only the necetaary appendages to the family elrcle. and should never take their children to ride with them.? Soma time since it wm the misfortune of a lady who had a child with her. to get In his oar. There were but few passengers at the time, and the little glri was seated beside her mother. The passergers began to fill up the car until it was quite fall, wuen he demanded that the seat of the little girl should be vaoatad, for the benefit of some one else. The mother objected, aad offered to pay the regular fare, but It was of no use?bis language became so liarah and Insulting that she was obliged to leave the car. He has a peculiar faculty, too, for forgetting the faces of the regular subscribers, and, though one may ride with him every day, he has never seen them or their ticket before. A few days since, a man who was leading a large bull mastiff dog. stepped upon the front platform of his car. and took the dog on with him. He Immediately rushed to the front or the ear, and ordered the dog off, with, "Wall, now, Mister, I guess that 'are dogaintgoin' to stay here The owner of the dog, being of a don't care sort of disposition, replied In such a way that Jonathan retired, satisfied that he had woke up the wrong passenger that time. Within a ahort time, several new faces hiTt appeared on noma of the car*. who hare taken the placet of the superannuated, or of those who who have found another field of labor. One of theae. a Cpft man who, by the way. is something of a buck, rendered himself extremely popular among the ju eiiile patrom of the line, and ever wear* a smile upon hi* countenanoa He la one of those accommodating spirits that always perform* the labor of hi* poet wlthcut thinking or earing whether fell iMl Ml appreciated Deeide* those who attend through the day, are several whoae duty it la to keep a look out during the night.

It ? appeared that plaintiff, who is a cashier in one of the ~~ banks of tbis oity. prior to 1847 tented the house No. , 67 Pitt street, with the yard connected therewith, ? from defendant's father-in-law The latter died some time in that jear, and upon his death the house ocou- " pied by Mr. Smith, together with other property in the :! same street, came into thepossession of defendant. The defendant (as plaintiff's counsel stated) being desirous " of retaining Mr Smith as his tenant, induced hia to f' take a lease of the house and yard for another year, ' which he (Smith) did, on condition that defendant fj would not erect any building in the rear of his (the !: plaintifl's) premises during the year it further ap- ? peared that Mr. Smith is a horticulturist, and had a f. very large collection, both of foreign and native plants [j and shrubs, which he cultivated and reared in tbe V yard in the rear of his honse ; and the reason he j' made it a condition of the lease that defondent should ; not bniid on the yard, was, that his colleation of J, j lants should not be disturbed ; but he alleges that ? defendant, In November, 1847, commenced to build on j, the premises, and in doisg so dug up the entire of his n plants and transplanted them In another place ; soon v! after which tbey decayed and were destroyed.
