WM. II. CRAWFORD, Secretary of the Treasury. From the Albany Diiily Aihtrtitrr, of May 3 Some surprise having been expressed on reading the paragraphs in yesterday'! paper, of ;lie sale of three per cent slock owned by thit stale, and Uie borrowing of a million of dollar by the Comptroller i we think it our duty to relieve the minds of those who areun easy on this subject, by stating, that by a law, passed by Uie legislature, at Uieir late session for improving the finances of the state, the 7 per cent stock, created during the late war, is directed to be paid off, by the tale of the three per cent stock, and a new loan of a million of dollars al 6 per cent redeemable after 5 yeart which hat now been ellectetl by Uie Comp troller, as mentioned in yesterday's paper. IJy this financial operation of changing the 7 per cent loan to 6 per cent, there it a clear saving lo the state or Sio.ouo per annum, be tides the premium obtained on the new loan of 12.500; and by the sale of the three pc rent stock, the mm of 38,800 it obtained more than the comparative value of Uie said tlock to that ot 6 per cent. The law above referred to, alto reduces to one mill on the dollar, the state tax of two mills pledged for ihe payment of the 7 per ecu i ttocx. The citT of Albany obtained k premium of 0000, on Uie city eloc or f - "w,uw ; m itock bearaao interest of I per cent, payable half yearly, and it irredeemable lor ten yeart. ' From the Antigua QateUMas 7. We are concerned to state the lots of the Jou - i.a Berkeley Mail Boat, captain Allitnn, which was unfortunately stranded about l o'clock in the night ol the 3d iott. on Sanay lfta&d Reef, while proceeding from St. Kilts to this place. The crew, and passengers, consisting of lour gentlemen with two servants, were safely lanoed here yesterday morning. The passengers were, Vr. Clifton, John Hart Rollins, esq. of the A r - inr, John Stewart, esq. of London, and C. II. Hammond, esq. of New - York. Whilst we feel happy at the preservation of those gentlemen, (with that of the other iersons) we are auUioris - rrt la slate, lhat the experienced no personal in jury, and no oUier loss than some trifling articles. I lie latter personage nat neen some io"uui m Uie West Indies, for Ihe benefit of his health; and as tins paper may possibly reach his friends, as well as thuee of hi. fellow passengers, it is deem ed necessary to make thit statement for their sat isfaction. From a St. Lemit paper of February 27. Minet tf MuiouriXVhea Mr. Branbury, the celebrated botanist and mineralogist, explored this territory (ic 1811) he discovered at the miner, iu Washington county, an immense body of ziuc ores mixed with the lead mineral. Mr. B. remarked to the editor of this paper, that the bases of riur, so abundant in this territory, were very little known, but would, at no distant peri od, became - ooeofthe staples of our country. Malleable zinc in sheets, calculated for cover ing houses, gutter leaders, lining ci.tenu or other vessei. is much ued in the eastern states it u not subject to corrosion by the weather, uor cracked by the tun, as has been experienced of copper and other metals. We hope to see the tiucof Musouri prepared, not only for domestic purposes, but for exportation. WASHINGTON, May 2G. Seventeen negroes, coucerued in the murder of Uieir master, Ur. Robert Berkeley, of Frederic county, Virginia, have been apprehended, and are now confined iu tho Winchester jail. I be principal m this horrid transaction is among the number. The late hail itorm.T mm the following it will be seen that the storm of Thursday last cm - raced a wider extent of country than was at first apprehended. Wo may expect accounts of it Ir om other quarters, and there is no doubt hut that the injury done is of a very serious na lure. Winclittler, I 'a. MauiS. On Thursday evening last a fall of hail was experienced here, which probably was as severe as any ever witnessed iu Ibis section of Uie conn try. The morning was unusually fine until a bout the turn of the day, when tome cloud, were observed to collect, which were soon succeeded by rain and a discharge of hail, of nearly the average size of a bulled walnut. These stones continued to descend, with Uie exception of a momentary cestabon, for from ten minutes to a quarter of an hour. The wind being calm few er windows were broken Uran might bave been xpected. In the neighborhood of this place. we are credibly informed, Ihe hail was of a much larger size than any observed here, tome of the stones being of Uie bigness of a ben's egg. rer sons who were exposed to Uie peltinxs of the storm bave teen made almost as sore as it they had been beaten rith a club. Forward wheal and rye, as well as vegetation generally, as might have been expected, bave sustained comiderablr jury. WINCHESTER, (Vir.) May 23. A murdor, accompanied with circumstance ifthemoul horrible and savage barbarity, was committed on the body of Dr. Robert Berkeley of this county, by bis slaves, on Tuesday ni - hi the 12th inst. I he following brief account ha been given us by different persons, and will, we believe, be found substantially correct. Ihe doctor wat called from his dwelling on the ev ning above mentioned, by a fellow, (now in coo hiiemcot.j nnd informed that Randolph, a fellow who had been some time run away, was returned aud then nt bis rabin. Ou arriving at Uie cabin he found the fellow at the door, having, iu his hand a large club which the doctor made an attempt to lake from him. This was, however, resisted, and Uie issue of the contest was, the doctor's being knocked down, and the blows in humanly repeated until he breathed his last : A large tire wa. then made in the cabin, on which the murdered body was thrown and con sumed uutil scarce a vestige of it remained 1 ! ! In this part of the tragedy several other negroes were acton hence it is concluded that the scheme was premeditated, and their object mo ney, of which ills believed they robbed the hnuat to a considerable amount, a. upward, nf one thousand dollar., which were concealed in a cabin, have sines been received. Mrs. Berke ley, it appears, was ignorant of Uie fate of her husband for several days ; Uie negroes having hatched up a storr, lhat when he was called from the home Randolph had a second lime made his escape, and that his master had pursu ed him. Fifteen of the negro't are now confined in the jail of this place, but we regret to state, that the principal perpetrator is not vet appre hended . dilligent pursuit it however making after mm ; he was teen on Thursday last at a firm near town ; hit pursuers were then pressing upon him ; hut he bat Uiut far eluded their vigilance. I'ntcript. Since our paper was put io press Uie Murderer has been taken, and committed to Jail, with another of his accomplices in the rohherv. More money has been found and other discoveries made, which will we hope lead to the recovery of the whole. CHARLESTON. May 21. The body of Mr. Jacob F.

" We brrived here alter a pnsinge of twenty days, having had mostly head breezes the whole way We bad a equall or two. but no soriout blow. The appearance of the land in approaching Cae Henry it mountainous in the extreme, as you uiay suppose, from its being seen (on a clear day) at least seventy miles off. We anchored one nnd a half miles from the btarli, di rectly opposite the town ; and went the next day to view the curiosities of the place. We found it to be a most miserable hole, presenting the same appearance as the day after the revolution and massacre of Ihe French. Three fourths of the houses nre in ruins, nnd the rest inhabited by Uie most miserable set of beings th.H can well be conceived of, alino't naked, and eatinza parcel of roott, iiC which forms their principal food. in conjunction with the other officers, I wat invited to three or four dinner parties, and introdu ced to teveral American ladies, and black dukes and countt, Sic. tome ufLhristophe't ccurtiert: a great honour. wc are going irom here tomorrow morning lor Port au Prince, from Ibunce to Vera Crut, and then to Copenhagen, when we shall retrace our slept, and return either to New York or .Norfolk, most pronaniy the latter.

On our arrival here, we tent on thore to know whether a talute would be returned i the answer was yes. Upon which we fired a salute of twenty one guns which wat answe - red by seventeen. Captain Reawas excessively angry at their impudence, and tent on thore lo demand the reason why his talute had not been returned. A Iter an explanation, we fired another talute ol twenty one, which was returned by an equal number." Extract of a tetter from Washington City, dated Alar 52d, 1818 Some of the hail which fell latt evening wat at large at nutmegs most of it as large as smail marbles, and a few scattering ones were seen at large at eggs. All the houses, except the President's, have suffered uoie or less, to the great io y ol the sinners. It i. observed that the hous es which, like the pricidcnl't, are glazed with Hon ten ela.s, the convex tide nut, have not sut - fered in the least. The cattle in the vicinity, and those covering our commons, were greatly distressed, ind some of them injured j thousands of little birds have been killed, and a bout half the Iruit and vegetables in the gardens have been de stroyed. It was amusing to see a nock of sheep which long nelnre ine tornado reached tneni, huddled together, turning their hinder parts to the storm, and running their heads under each o - thers bellies. Happily the squall lasted but a - bout 7 minutes, and only one house, and that a new one, wat blown down : the window, oi lorn - modore Rogers (Oi l Neptune, as we call him) most.
