s, - i:u'.r.'iJC - Ers - wo pout, THURSDAY, MAT M. Law ease - In thit eveniog't paper will be looml tb termination of tha appeal in the court of KJng't, of Asbiord y. Thorntoo. The latter was triad and acquitted by the jury of the murder of Maty Ashford ; but the circumstantial evidence Wai to irreeutihly strong against him, and it appearing;, after the acquittal, that very Important testimony had been Irept back, toe nearest rehxtioo of the deceased instituted what , h called an action of appeal, a proceu to try him agiin, at provided by law. This action has been ' a lo'.e time pending before the learned judges, who, alter .teulayinz much black Utter reading of the dark ages, have decided that the guilty villain Shall be dimmed. It Would b a difficult matter to produce a stronger instance of war be. tweeu rommou sense and technical learning Every step that has been taken in this case, is - calculated to cover the whole proceeding won ridicule and contempt. , We learn from a passenger, lo the steam boat this morning (rem Albany, that the three tier cent United States stock owned by this state, and amounting to 840,000, was disposed of last Tuesday by the comptroller, agreeable to a Jate law. The porchBters were Le Roy, Bayard k Co., Prime, Wrd fc Sands, and John J. Astor ti Boa, f f this city. It was taken at 68 1 - t perceut. Other stock negociations to a large amount we perceive, by the Albany Daily Advertiser, were made at the same time. From th Albany Dnilg Advertiser, of May 57, The Manhattan Bauk have taken the state loan of one million dollars of six percent, stork, at 101 1 - 4 percent, being a premium of f 12,500, and 1750 more than was offered by the bauk of XVow - ioric. ine mauiiumm panic in consequence of having made the bct offer for the loan become entitled lo the trearury deposits in the city of New - York, which have heretofore been given to the Bank of New - York. The Albany City Loan of $205,000 of 7 per cent. ttocr, was taken by mme, vvara ana Sands, at 3 percent advance ; excepting 29,000 subscribed by creditors of Uie corporation, auu (KC0 subscribed by the commissioners towards creating a sinking I unu. Tendernessof conscience On Thursday the 14th current, fcoeneser weaver, esq. ana another geotlemao, were cboten by the town of Rox - bury representatives to me uenerai ioun. mr, Seaver immediately rose, and expressed his gratitude to the town for the honor they bad conferred upon him by electing him their representative, whose duties be never bad more leisure, and but for one circumstance nevor more inclination, to perform. Aerlong and deep research the Christian religion appearing to him the fabrication of impostors, necessity compelled him, however reluctrntly, to decline the office tendered him, because he could not, ronsnVn - iunuly, subscribe to the following declaration, required by the constitution, of every representative, fix: , , do declare, mat 1 Deiieve in we tV .,i;.,r tJ th Albany Rcff'uter stale the, political parties m the next boose of assembly as follows j Republicans, by which we onueru those who are friendly to the present state mam - oistration,81 federalist S7 ; Martting . 7 which is understood those woo are administration of Mr. Clinton, 18.

Mr. Coleman, . ...... . a. ik. hi.tnr and ultimate object of the Aca demy of the Fin Arts in this city is little under - .11 and its utility, perhaps, not duly appreci - ated, you are requested to give a place in your valuable paper w me loiiowuig ciui. The first idea of this establishment originated here about the year 1801. Chancellor Living - too. beine then minister of the United States in Paris, was written to and entered warmly into (he views of the first subscribers to the plan. At their instance he procured the fine casts from the matter - pieces of Grecian sculpture, which, in all nations, are considered at standard of excel lence, and which form the basis of study in an the academies of Europe. He also, with lauda ble xeal, represented the subject in so lavoranie a lin - ht to the then emperor Napoleon, that his ma - iet ordered to be presented to the infant intti - . . . . . . i . .n..r - r lution, tn nit name, a vniuauie collection im uj - pies of the ancient paintings dicovered in Her - cutaneuni. of prints, drawings, and works on architecture. 1 he exjiente u ine iiaiues wan defrayed from the sum originally subscribed The various articles which lorm the basis of the collection of the academy were soon received, and the statues were arranged and publicly exhibited in the old circus in Greenwich - street The circus was toon after taken down to make way lor privato building?, and the collection was removed to a room in tne cutiom - nouse, u bottom of Broadway, where it remained until that building was also taken down to make room for the nrcnent improvements. In the mean time, (ISth Feb. 1f!08) a charier was granted to K. K. Livingston ana ouiers, constituting them and their successors a body corporal h iha name of the Academy of tne Arts with power te create stock to the amount of 1000 shares or 25 eacn. 1 nis was to oe me pauui - a ry basis of the institution, which had no fundi but what were to be derived from this source ; and tbif, experience soon demonstrated to be utterly inadequate to the erection, purchase, or even hire of suitable apartments, and to other inJunensable exnences. The various articles competing the collection were, therefore, placed securely in a warehouse, to wait for more propitious terms. At length, at the conclution of the late war, when the buildinirs at Bcllevue were completed. and the poor removed to tliem, the corporation of the city, with a liberality highly honorable to tlienitelves, gave a lease for ten years, of the building which had been the alms - bousc, to various societies for literary purposes, and a pari was srraoted to tho academy. Still fuuds Were wautiug for making the ncrcsary alterations Tho academy was in debt. Commercial embar rassments had palsied the powers ol him who had always been foremost in promoting the interests of tho society. Otlmn betitated to hazard fur ther rxpenco, and the liberal intentions ol the corporation were iu danger of being defeated, when two gentlemen, whose names ought to be known to their country and to be forever respect Christian religion, and have a firm persuasion of Ld by :,n 0VCrs of the fino arts. Dr. D. Hojack its truth." Uarlford Courant, REMARK. The above is taken from another paper, but I cannot content to let it pass entirely unnoticed This Mr. Seaver has been several times a member of the legislature, and has never before had any difficulty in swallowing thit same oath that now causes such spasms. I knew him well t he aud Mr. John I'mlarl came forward, and bor rowed from the Mechanic's Dank, on their own pertonal security, 1500 ; and with this sum thiwe alterations were accompiibnea wwen prouueeu the present apartments. In the mean time llic principal artists rcsmem in the city were incorporated with the original members of the association ; and an alteration in the charter has been since obtain od, giving to resident artuts a participation in the directum ol wai one of your noisy patriots br the day ; loud the affairs of the academy the principal room and brawling in the cause of the people. It he ha. bn Jeyoted to the exhibition of work, of . . , art, particularly of the production! of firing art - h.

What he says about hit conscience, forcibly reminded me of the following passage in Sterne's sermon on the tame subject, in which ho lsyt down the following rules : First. Whenever a man talks loudly agr.insl religion, alwayt tuspect that it it not his reason, but his passions, which have got the better of his CREED. A bad life, aud a good belief, are disagreeable aud troublesome neighboi s ; and where they tej aiate, depend upon it, 'tis for no other causa ut quietness take. . Sixond'y. When a man, thut represented, tills you in any particular instauce, that such a tlu: g toe" ('t'Uiiuf us conteicrtce, always believe ho means exactly the same thing as when he tells you that such a thing goes against his stomach ; u pi cot want of oppetilo being generally the true cause of both. lo a word Truif that man in nothing, vho has not a CONSCIENCE in trtry thing.

But these exhibition! have further demon strated that the present room is utterly unfit for its purpose, it being badly lighted, and encumbered with the pier of tho cliimnies in the centre'; so that no cne object can be advantageously view ed, aud Ihe elcgauce of general etlcct is totally destroyed. It is not to br doubted unit wlieneverluiun can he procured which will enable the acadoniy to construct a proper room, illuminated from the top, the exhibitions will be much more splendid, more attractive lo the public, and ol course more productive to the funds of tlm institution. I mutt here observe, however, that the ultimate object of the academy is not the accumulation of mo ney ; but the gratuitous tdiiralton if students in the stteralarts, nud the dilfusitn of knowledge and taste. It is indeed hoped that a fund may gradually bo acquired, sultiuc - nt to the payment of email annual tuuis lo disabled or uulortunaic arlUts their widews and orphans. Alllio' at first sight the line arts mav be con sidered as unimportant and superfluous orna ments of society, rather thau as eeulial to the dcvclopcmcnt of some of the mo't sublime pow ers of the human mind, and equally contributing to soma of its higlunt and most rational enjoy - mcnK yctno reasonable man cnu persist iu such an opinion after contemplating for a few moments the sublime group of the l.aocoou; the convulsive but fruitless lru;rgle of tho parent to protect his children from death in bis mot hit!ct in form ; the angui'h of the soul iniprcucd oa ctcry Ici - ture ; the agony of pain on everv limb and .ousels the children vainly supplicating that, aid which the father vainly strives to gic, are eloquent in the mot sublime semi! of the word. Tho' the stage be iioprcsii'f, lha poetry be fascinating, yet neither, nor even both united, ever eave a more resistlss. appeal to humau feelings : No poet nor actor ever displayed more wonderful powers of mind than the sculptor of this exquisitely palhttic group. Virgil it tuppoted to nave grounueu ms celebrated description of this subject upon the very original of this work, which was at Rome in hit time, aud 1 take Ihe liberty oi sutjoiniug nis imei as trantl.iled by Drydcn, one of the most eminent poets of our parent country, to thow how far poetry has fallen short of sculpture ia this admira ble subuxt.
