he had given so long notice, we cannot learn; but it seems now he has passed that point, and obtained leave to bring in a bill. The title of this also varies considerably from the words of the notice; it is more comprehensive and general. To this there can be no objection; but past experience, on this very question, induces a fear, that by grasping at too much, little or nothing may be obtained; and that the very desirable reforms of the patent law, specified in the notice may be neglected, or omitted, among the numerous provisions which must necessarily be subjects of discussion in a satisfactory bill for the better encouragement of the arts and manufactures.

N.B. This sum has been paid in ready money, on taking the first steps, and as many of the inventors are poor men (operatives), and a great many others of them persons to whom it would be very inconvenient to pay at least £100. down, they have been obliged to go into debt, or mortgage or dispose of their inventions, either wholly or in part, &c.
NEW PATENTS. 1836.
