167. — 2, Article Stfam Navigation. We have received a pamphlet,

entitled A Brief Narrative, proving the Right of the late William
Sybiinotom, Civil Engineer, tooe considered the Inventor of Steam Land
Carriage Locomotion, and also of Steam Navigation. From the state-
ments of the author, Mr. Robert Bownc, and the documents he has pro-
duced, it is evident that Henry Bill availed himself of his knowledge

of Mr. Symington** pirns, aud of an unauthorized inspection of the
models of his apparatus, in constructing the boats upon which hia
unfair claims to tin* invention were founded.

Mr. John Kay, of Rochdale, has also written, under the impres-
sion that Mr. Bell was present when he, Mr. Kay, suggested the idea
of working small boats by hand-machinery, and larger vessels by
steam-engines. Mr. Kay is, however, evidently mistaken, as he states
the conversation to which he alludes to have taken place at Liverpool,
in 1796 or 1797, and Mr. Symington had actually worked u boat by
steam-machinery in 178S>
