in their reckless and mendacious assertions,.l
have a convenient way of entrenching them
selves in falsehood by "washy washy " words

He denies the right of a territorial legislature
to pass laws upon the subject, either for itspro
teetion, regulation, or exclusion, for.the reason
that the Territories "have no attributeof sot
reignty about them;" and he pronounces the
inference -absurd" that the courts can apply
the 'judicial remedies" lawfully existing in
other States. Der ying all judicial remedies,
and insisting upon a construction of the Consti
i tution which renders legislative protection ins-'
possible, Judge Black claims the gratitude of
the slaveholders for having discovered an "ex
iosnatir principle of public law" under which
the owner may be robbed of his property, and
still console himself with the a.ssurance that he
retains a barren, useless, worthless right, under
the laws of a State of which he is no longer a
citizen, and whence the slave has been removed.

The inventor of a.,tiseful machine is a
public benefaCtor: Be furnishes a means
for increased wealth and increased happi
ness of his fellow Men. Mr. S. C. Coffin,
an old Pittaburgher, by the way, has now in
operation, at the wOrksof W. Dilworth & Co.,
corner of Seventh and Grant streets,a simple
and very complete and effective machine to
make shingles. Mr. Coffin has a machine
which is well-worthy the attention of every
manufacturer of lumber in the country.—
It is capable of making two thousand per
fect shingles in an hour, with the attend
ance of a single man. In. a light iron frame
a circular any is fixed horizontally, and the
block of wood to be cut is placed upon a
light iron frame and worked upon the saw
by simple and perfect mechanical contriv
ances. The wood approaches the saw in the
direction of the grain, resting upon a mova
ble table, which is connected with a pair of
treadles, a touch of the foot upon which
adjusts the table, so as to snake the shingle
of the desired thickness. The shingle is
jointed by a simple mechanical contrivance,
so that the sawing and jointing proceeds
simultaneously. Mr. Coffin is the inventor of
Loth the adjustable table and the jointer,
for which he has secured a patent. The
work of this machine is turned out as
smootlie and perfect as if planed.
The machine is light, weighing only sev
en hundred pounds,and costs only one hun
dred and fifty dollars. There is a fortune to
be made out of this machine, and its cheap
ness and perfect workmanship will recom
mend it at once to all judges of machin-
Mr. Coffin is prepared to sell rights to I
counties, States or territories for the sale
and use of this ...-aachine, on very moderate
terms. Single machines may be had of Mr.
S. S. Fowler, the manufacturer in this city,
for one hundred. and fifty dollars. Parties
interested will do well to call at Dilworth &
Co.'s, and see the machine in prctical opera-
Injunction Granted lu favor of the Penn
sylvania Salt Manufacturing Company.
tit Thursday of last week in the United
States District Court at Philadelphia, be
fore .Tudge Grier in equity, an injunction
was granted in the case of the Pennsylvania
Salt Manufacturing Company, vs. Thornton
Conrow and Isaac Barber. The complain
ants are a Company incorporated under the•
law: of the State of Pennsylvania. The
' complaintants allege that George Thompson,
was the true, original and first inventor of an
improvement in devices for putting up
c iustic alkalies, not known or used at the
time of his application for a patent. (i the
1.2 lst <lac of ( (etoLer, 1:556, a patent was
granted to Thompson for the improvement,
and on the 2fith day of January, 1e.51 . , he
transferred his patent right to the corn
plainants. On the first day of Feburary,
1-(39, re-issued letters patent were made to
Thompson for the improvement, and he
i again transferred his right to the complain-
The complainants allege that the defend
ants have infringed upon their rights, a=
they are using the improvement in the
Eastern district of Penmsylvania, without
authority from them. t irill,s,,ursday morning
a 'notion irai made in tic . "se, asking for an
injunction restraining tb, defendants from

and an injunction NV:LS iottei to restrain
