(Before Vice-Chancellor Sir JOHN STUART)

This was an action on behalf of Messrs. Young, Meldrum, and Binney, of Bathgate, in the county of Linlithgow, for an injunction to restrain the defendants, who carry on business in North Wales, from manufacturing or selling any paraffin oil, or oil containing paraffin, or paraffin made in infringement of the patent granted to the plaintiff James Young, in october 1850 Sir HUGH CAIRNS, Q.C., and Mr. LAWSON, supported the motion, and Mr. MALINS, Q.S., and Mr. FISCHER, resisted it. After some discussion, the following order was made by arrangement between the parties:- £400 to be paid by the defendants to the plaintiffs within 28 days from today as a compromise, and in full of all claims by the plaintiffs, for past workings by the defendants; a royalty of 3d. per gallon to be paid by the defendants to the plaintiffs from the present time until the expiration of the plaintiff's patent on the 17th October next on oil oil manufactured by the defendants according to the plaintiff's process, an account of the oil so made to be taken monthly, and the royalty of 3d. Per gallon to be paid within a fortnight afterwards; the royalty so to be paid to be returned by the plaintiff's to the defendants if the bill in Young v. Fernie, lately decided in this branch of the court and now under appeal in the House of Lords, should be dismissed, and the costs of this suit to abide the result of Young v. Fernie
