Monday, January 21, 1828.
On motion of Mr. VAN BUREN, the orders of the day were postponed, and the bill for the relief of Simeon Broadmeadow was taken up, and read a second time.
Mr. VAN BUREN explained the nature of the bill. Mr. Broadmeadow, in whose favor it was framed, was an alien, had come to this country with the intention of establishing himself, and was desirous of obtaining the privilege of making use of inventions of which he was the author.
The bill was then ordered to a third reading.
