Such, to restrain by injunction the publication of a book containing some of the former's sketches, and purporting to have been revised by him, the facts of which appeared in yesterday's TIMES, Chief Justice Ingraham has ordered a permanent injunction to issue against the defendant. In a brief memorandum indorsed on the papers in the case, the Chief Justice says: "The sketches were the property of plaintiff and he is entitled to an order restraining their publication without his consent. The agreement only contemplated the use of one sketch, and there was no authority to publish that one as revised by the author."
