167, 2, Article STEAM NAVIGATION. We have received a pamphlet,
entitled A Brief Narrative, proving the Right of the late WILLIAM
SYMINGTON, Civil Engineer, to be considered the Inventor of Steam Land
Carriage Locomotion, and also of Steam Navigation. From the state-
ments of the author, Mr. ROBERT BOWIE, and the documents he has pro-
duced, it is evident that HENRY BELL availed himself of his knowledge

of Mr. Symington's plans, and of an unauthorized inspection of the
models of his apparatus, in constructing the boats upon which his
unfair claims to the 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 a boat by
steam-machinery in 1788.
