I il 1 I iJ 1 I ir m N<'iiH*tt«w, Produced by HitiifditR* A KFJPOUTEK for the Sun some tiiuo ago MMtilo tlio acquaintance of a gentle- man in Livingston County, who is him- self a living iuuHtration of the careless- ness with which an excited mob of men are accustomed to fool with a man's life if they once get him into their clutches. The gentleman alluded to is now in the city, en route with his family to Texas, which State ho will make his future home, and from him permission was obtained to make use of the follow- ing facts: The most of our readers are familiar with the details of the murder of Marks, the Kvansvillecommercial trav- eler, at a point between the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers, known as " The Narrows," several years ago. The name of the murderer was Sulli- vant., and he was a merchant at the point named and was in the habit of buying goods of the firm for which Marks was traveling. Marks, on his rounds, called on him as usual. Sulli- vant invited him to spend th...

I Hxtawti from a Recent Htrmon by Prof. David Hwinu, of Chicago.] * * * Thus at a glauoe wo per- oetve that the vast industry of man •h>en not gravitate about the word com- ■norce, nor around the word money, nor around the word King or President, i>ut around the word "homo." Of all the multitude you will soe to-morrow ou the streets in the discharge of busi- noHH duties, it is safe to affirm that the vast majority will be impelled by the love of a home that is, or that is to be. Industry being the absolute sal- vation of man, Cow great is the intlu- •*noe of that circle which sends us forth eaoh day to our work, and which ren- ders the work pleasant because it is performed for the sake of the blessed fireside. The work of a slave must be emptied of pleasure because it is a toil whioh builds up the house of another and leaves the workor in poverty and •despair, but on tho opposite how sweet the toil of a freeman since all the hours ( f such industry go toward tho home of to-day...

cm >/V ' V 1 Patent Plunder. (lon^ri'ss having c.ntertsd upon an 4j\ amination of the legislation in reganl to inventions and the abuses that hfcve grown up under it, why should not tke inquiry be extended so as to embrace the entire legislation and ascertain if it is not founded upon a false theory! The theory is that an [inventor ia entitled to an absolute property in his invention, and no one should be permitted to use it without his consent. This opinion, like many others on which wo habitual- ly act, has no sanction except its age, and the numbers who have given it their assont. An invention is not the product of the inventor's labor or thought, but the product of all the labor and all the thought of the past, with a slight addi- tion only bj^the inventor. The contri- bution is at bost^but small, as compar- ed with the entire labor and thought of all others which enter into it and have rendered the new combination possible. What has been done by others has pro- duced tho pos...
