The Washington correspondent of the Neiv York Herald, under date of the 26th ult., says that " the Senate Patent Committee had up this morning for consideration the'Heywood india-rubber application f or renewal of patent; also the Chaffee application. . The committee are unfavorably disposed to recommending any renewals, and will in this respect conform to the action of the House Patent Committee. Thus, the applications for renewals of patents —some twenty in number—may be regarded as dead for this Cone-ress." i
