He contrasted the present condition of thf I uitcd Hiatus with that of Mexico and other countries and attributed our present high position to the dew lopuu'ot of American lnwntiw talent. If the intention* of trans, Fitch, and others, that he could name, hat been patronised and encouraged in the way proposed bj this project, the United States would now be fifty yean in advance of what it is. Many of our inventors, aftel perfecting their inventions, hare been compelled foi want of means to abundon them, having vainly trustee to the gratitude and public spirit of their MLow-cttiiens He instanced the case of a man. now 70 yeara of age.who afier perfecting several inventions which enriched tboa< who introduced them, is now poor, aud he had no doubl there are thousands of other Instances of the same kind. II is decidedly a matter of regret that some project of tbi nature here proposed. hail uot been carried out long be fore this time. About thirty years since a mutual pro leetive association was organised by a few meehauics and mure recently au organisation waa entered into ii this city, but as yet it appears that there is no me diuui by which the poor inventor can Introduce th< offspring of his talent into general use Krom tha know ledge he has of inventions, he thinks the project undei consideration will, if carried out, result in a profit of al least one thousand per cent on the capital invested. Air. A.ndhkws, the chairman, being called upon, tali that although he was not desirous of speaking, yet hi expected that he would be called upon;, and In order ti save time, had drawn up a few remarka which he woult read to the meeting. He waa aware that many aaaocia tions for mutual bcuofit had been formed, but failed frou defects. The objects to be sought in an aaaociatlon o tnis kind should be confined to no tenets, confined to ui theories, that cannot be practically proved. Thla inatl tulion, he said, should he au independent oat,.as Inde pendent as inventors themselves are in mind. The In renters' Institute is to be an investigating institute with a two-fold object?one to assist needy inventors uuu (uo otner to acquire wealth, wnicu no lookei upon um the mainspring of all human notion il thu 19th century That which Is unknown to-daj in known to-morrow, and conduce* to thu wualtl of (Uu inventor, a* well the wealth of the nation In' veiition i? the characteristic of civilization?without il vvu would be nothing but savages. Were it not for in veution. wo would to-day he writing on parchment in stead of paper, with a style initead of a pen, ant reading from the parchment instead ot the printet page, invention suffer* from want of means to develops It* products, and it is the province of the conti-m plated institute to help and nsslst thu inventor in bring iug his inventions into use; und not oblige him, as is Lot frequently thu case, to go to the man of wealth?tin bruin pilferers?and solicit him to purchase it for auiesi of pottugu for his famishing family?thu wealthy mut afterwards reaping thu reward which of right belonged to the uuthor of the invention. The speaker thcr estimated the prolits of tne proposed institute which he demonstrated satisfactorily, would he greatei while the risk would be less, than in auy other enter prise The advantages to accrue from an association ol this kind to the inventor and to the public, are innumerable, und cannot be even guessed at. In conclusion he said, that it is proposed 'that this shall be a self existing, self-supporting, active a ?d profitable institution It is in fact now orgauized?the capital $-10,000 is paid in?the shops, engines, &.c. and dwelling houses art built--two inventions ure now in progress--forty applications nre peudiug, and the capital which is now to b< subscribed, lor tbe sole purpose of putting into practical operation, such iuventions as may he approved of. Twc uvi-ntious are now in practical operation?one by which live hundred two gallon kegs arc made every day, and a contract for supplying -40.000 of which ia entered into, and another invention for manufacturing locks for the United States mail?a contract for doing which has likewise been entered into. Mr. Ulinton uoesavblt enquiiwd if it vvas intended that this institute should act in opposition, or was intended in any way to disparage the National Association el' iuveutors, of which he was a member - to which Mr. AsfDHKwi replied there was no intention of th? kind. Mr. ltowell and Mr. Clinton Roosevelt were then added to the committee appointed at thu morning meeting to visit i'crth Amboy anil report at a future day; and ? resolution passed requesting the committee to report next Wednesday. Mr. Sewai.l Short spoke for a few minutes, and alluded tO the necessity of having an institution like the ono proposed. Mile fiitiiciai Kicciion?iiioimay, juiio 7. NAMES OK CANDIDATES. suphtmt court.

Chief Justice Bronson, Mr. Juetlee Buardaley, Mr. Juatice J wilt.? Sentence of Dr.alk.Soto Orant, a colored man. waa brought into court thli morning by the aherlff of Steuben county, under a writ of kaheat corpuo. It appeared the primmer, aome time laat fail, had a dirpute with another colored man, named Jamea Pass, whom he atruck with an axe anil killed. Ha waa then tried and oon icted of murder in January laat. at the Court of Oyer and Terminer for Steuben county, and ordered for execution. At the trial, hi* counael took exception*, and the execution waa delayed beyond the day upon which it waa to take place. The exception* were subsequently argued in the Supreme Court, and the proceeding* in the caae adjudged to be regular. Under theae circumstance* it became neeeiaary that be ehould be reaentenced. The Chief Juatice, previous to paaalng sentence, addressed him a* follow*:?Nero Orant, you were oonvicted of murder in Steuben county, and aentenced to be executed in Jauuary laat. Counsel had at the time home doubts aa to the legality of the sentence, and caused exception* to be taken, which were afterward* ably argued by him; but, after hearing all that he urged in your behalf, we are of opinion that your conviction I was legal?we have no doubt about it. You have now been brought into court by a writ of AuAnis corpus, for I the purpose of having the sentence carried into execuj tion?have you any thing to say why it should not be > done.' I The prisoner made no reply, but merely shook hie - head. * i Chief Juatlco. in continuation?It now only remain* f for the court to make out a warrant for your execution. > Since the period sentence was tlrst pronounced upon you, you have had sufficient time for reflection; it is.there fore, unnecessary for me to say any thing to yeu in regard - to preparing yourself to meet your approaching end.? ', It is true, however, that you may have had some hope i, during that time, but now that hopo is gone, and you t are warned to make the best use of the time te be all lowed you between this and your execution, which will r be on Friday, the 35th of Juno next, at the jail of Hteut ben county, between the hours of 10 o'clock in th* forenoon and 3 o'clock in the afternoon of that day. The t warrant for execution was then handed to the sheriff of - Steuben eounty, and th* prisoner removed. He is a - middle sixed man, about 45 years of age, with an intelliI gent countenance. He listened to the remark* of the 1 Chief Justice with the greatest composure, and seemed perfectly resigned to his fate. In the matter of opening and widening William - street?Mr. Baser was hewd this morning on tho part > of the commissioners, in reply to Messrs. McVane aud ) \Iott. 11 contended that as the objectors had not taken i any steps while the proceedings were before the commlsi sinners, they were not now in a condition to raise any 1 objections before this court. The objections,said Mr i Brady, takeei by Messrs. Hart were, that while they had , been awarded $3,800 (although their counsel, in his argument yesterday, was not very explicit in admit ting this very important fuct.) for damages, they f would, as the report was drawn, be compelled - to pay $3,163. the amount of the assessments imposed , upon their lots before th* year 1839, when the allowance to auy lot exceeded an assessment upon it for the same improvement. The commissioners were only required I by luw to report the excess of allowance. But by the > act of 1839, they are required to state in reference to each lot the amount ef allowance and charge severally. ) The consequence, supposed by the Messrs. Hart to result 1 from this change was, that whereas under Hie old law > the surplus of allowance, over charge, being alone stated, i no assessment would remain which the tenant could be I required to pay. The compliance under the law of 1839. i separating the charge from the allowance, would require ) the tenant to pay the charge which before would Lave been deducted out of the landlord's allowance, and the Harts therefore insisted that the commisssoners should, in their report, have inserted some clause to prevent such a result. Mr. Brady insisted that no objection to the report, could be made which was not urged beforo ) the commissioners; and seoondly. that the objection i now .made was not made before them. The only complaint before them was. that the allowance made to the Harts was too small; thirdly, that the commissioners ! had exactly conformed to the law of 1839, in stating the allowance and charge separately, und that any other '> mode would have been clearly erroneous; fourth, that it was neither the right nor the duty of the commissioners to declare in their ruport how the charges or allowances ) would affect the relations between landlord and tenant; and fifthly., that Messrs. Hart could not legally bo compelled to pay the assessments any more than they would have keen as the law stood before 1839, as tho act of tbe latter year only affected the form of assessment. After Mr. Bbaov had concluded, Mi1. Mott, one of the opposing counsel, insisted that tho ruport could not be confirmed, because the new constitution provided that when private property wus taken for public uses, the damage* to the owner should be ascertained by a jury, or by three commissioners appointed by a court of record. as the legislature should prescribe, but as tbe legislature had not prescribed which mode should be adopted, therefore, none existed, and the report should be sent back. The court stated that the commissioners in this matter were appointed beforo the new constitution was framed or came into operation, and that instrument expressly provides that all proceedings legally in progress when it went into effect should be continued. At the conclusion of the argument the ChiefJ ustice remarked that the existing opinion of the court was that the claim of Messrs. Hart only affected their liability us lessees, under the covenant to pay assessments, and could not be determined in this matter. He announced, however, that a more formal decision would be made to-morrow (this morning.) Mr. Fanshaw's objection went merely to the amouut of the sum awarded to him, but as it was not sustained by any proof, it is probable that it will be disregarded. The people vt. Jit me nor Ktngtley.?In thin case a bill of indictment wm found by the grand jury of Courtlandt Co. against tlie defendant, for keeping n <lUorderly house: to wit, a billiard room in tbe village of Homer, in that oounty. The indictment wan afterward* tried at tiiu court of general sessions, and a verdict obtained for the people. Mr. Hill, counsel for defendant, took exceptions to the verdict. First, that the keeping of a billiard room whore no bets wcro mudc. the losing parties merely paying for the rubbers, did not come within the statute of gaming; and. secondly, that the judge who tried the cause. charged the jury that they were judges both of the law and fact; whereas, ho ought to have charged them that they wore judges of the faot only. The court set aside the verdict, stating that both exceptions were well taken, and Mr. Justice ileardalcy remarked, that the Judge In the court below erred in telling the jury they were judges of the law and the fact. In criminal eases, questions of fuct only can be decided by a jury; but questions of luw are reserved for the decision of the < ourt. United States Mammal's Ofeick.?Two seamen, (names not given), belonging to the American ship Southerner, were arrested last evening, under a warrant granted by Mr. Commissioner Morton, on a charge of endeavoring to create a revolt on board srfld ship, while at anchor in the lower bay, on the 19th instant.

The stock market continues without any material alterations Some of the fancies go up and some g<i down from day to day. F.verything connected with stock operations appears to be in a very unsettled state and speculators are shaking in the wind, waiting foi some kind of a breeze to give them a start. At the first board to-day Harlem went up \ per cent; Farmer's Loan, >4; Reading, % Reading Bonds, ; Treasury Notes, .'4; Long Island fell off per cent; Canton, Illinois Bank,Reading Mortage Bonds,; Ohio 6's, Morris Cans), and Norwich and Worcester closed at prices current yesterday. Hales were made tr some extent at these variations, and there were buyeri for any amount offered. At the second board Pennsylvania 6's went up \ pur oent; Farmer's Loau, ; Harlem, SiMoney is exceedingly abundaut, ami the rate of In terest ranges from four to six per cent. Large loaui have recently been made at five per cent, on sixty ant ninety days, and the banks discount freely all the gooi business paper offering. The large amount of depositei in our banks is good evidence of the abundance of money and the improvement in the market value of governmen and Statu stacks shown that investments aro being madi in these securities to some extent. 1 The importations of specie into the ports of New Yorl and Boston, from the 1st of January to the loth of May this year, have been as annexed.

Boston, Jan. 1 to May lb f 10,006,9b' New York, do. do 6,998,731 m .. . , Total 4 months, lb days.. $17,065,89; The importations of specie into all the other ports o the country, for the same period, will probably amount t< more than three millions, swelling the aggregate to oui estimate of twenty millions of dollars. Some days since in our remarks relative to the bil Bled for an Injunction on the Heading itailroad Com pany, we suggested the policy of demanding an imme diate investigation; but we have since learned that it ii entirely out of the power of the company to bring thi affairs to a close a moment sooner than tho court ir which tho bill is filed, chooses to give a hearing, and ii the regular course of business, it cannot come up befori October. Had the parties bringing this bill wished at immediate investigation of the affairs of that company a hearing could have been obtained, and the matter set' tied at once by filing the bill In the proper court; but 1 appears that an immediate examination would not havi met tbu views of those Interested, their object evident!] having been to protract the affair as much as possible for the purpose of keeping it beforn the public. If thi applicants for an Injunction and a receiver really believi that the assets of the company aro being squandered; 1 they believe that tho operations which they descrlb have actually been made; if they believe that thcusurloui transactions detailed have actually been made, why did they not take measures to have the injunction granted and the receiver appointed at once, Instead ol giving the company five months longer to dissipate the property of the bondholders and stockholders ? We merely put these questions for the benefit of those in* tereatcd, with the Impression that they cannot be satisfactorily answered. The importation of merchandise into this port from foreign countries, since tho 1st of January, 1847, exceeds slightly ill value the importation for tho corresponding period in 1816.

I The annexed extract relative to the atate of the inanu1 lecturing diatricta In Great Britain, we take from the trade report or Du Kay It Co., dated May lat, 1047.

Notwithetanding , the*e accounta the Liverpool market ia giving way uuder , the iufluence of the aeverc preiaure in the money market, i and the continued and increaalng " short time" working. About sixty mill* in Lancashire and the neighborhood are now altogether at a stand still, and most of the others are working only four and three days, or even less. The conaumptlou of cotton i? .-no.-?? - ... ymij iniuvm. ' and 18,000 bags weakly are now considered to be the ' quantity worked up, instead of 30.000 bag* per week, aa , in the paat year. 1 The distress which thia atate of thing* entaila upon f the working classes is very severe, and menaces to he alarming if carried ou for a lenghtened period. The spinner* and manufacturer* in the town of I'reston. who t have pretty generally adhered to the usual hours of laI bor in the worst of times, have also been obliged to rer sort to "short time'' working. We are glad to be able to say in honor of the mill owners, that they are anxious 1 to provide as far us it is possible for the working people ; who are out of employment. We regret to say that the > effect which tip- diminished production of yarns and goods generally exercises on prices is altogether frustra. ted by the present money arisis, and the'difflculty of dls counting first rate mercantile paper at any thing like u > reasonable rate. Such a state of thing* is too unnatu' ral to last long, particularly as a knowledge exists in well informed quarters that bonatlde mercantile transactions have for souie time past been based on sound and . rational principles. The trade to distant countries, such as India, he., is seriously affected by the extraordinary rise in the value I of lnoaey. Purchases for these markets are generally . effected against long dated paper, and the returns made t in produce, or bills at eight or ten months date, it is evident that the present rate of discount does away with the small protlt which such transactions have hitherto J yielded, and thnt a partial suspension of shipments in , cotton and other good* must be the consequenee.

I The Fropoitd Ship Canal aerott the Continental Iith- I mut of Tehuanttpec. A fortnight since, we advised you that It wa* in con- I teiuplatioM to send a detachment of engineers, ho. to explore the l*thmu* of Tehuantepec, with the view of ascertaining the practicability of that route for a ship canal. The National Whig of this eveuing (the Taylor paper recently started in this city,) thus enlarge* upon the subject : ? u It lia* been decided, among other thing*, to vend a large force of U. H. marinas, under tbe command of Um Henderson, to accompany the party of engineer* ordered to explore the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Thl* force, when all are assembled ut the mouth of theHua*acuulco river, will not number less than 2.000 men. It ia thi* expedition which was shadowed forth in tbe recent account* from Commodore Terry. All the marine* on shorn have been ordered to thu Home Squadron In the Gulf forthwith, where the organization will take place. This force is largo enough to ensure perfect safety to the exploring parly, for the enemy, were he disposed, cannot oflrr any serious 1-eslataure ia the Ruction of country proposed to be explored, owing to the want of nieu, and there in no apprehension of any great trouble front the population itself. as it is very sparer, and composed chiftly of Indian*. ' Father llitrhio oppose* n constitutional bar to thia enterprise, winch we are afraid endanger* it* prosecution It i* this . That while the federal government haa the power to purchase the route, or acquire it bv treaty, it has no power to construct the canal It will require % AO,000 000 to finish thia canal for lighter* such as paaa the Holland Canal around the Fall* of Niagara; and nothing but, the government can undertake it It would be worth the commerce of Asia to accomplish it, hut if thero is uo power iu the eon*titutiou to execute it, we should like to know the object of the aurvey and exploration of the route. TEKRE8 CALJENTK8. Wasmiwoton, May 17, 1M7. Noble ,1ct. The President of the United State* i* hold responsible for thle war with Mexico, and for all the diaaatare attending It. It l* nothiug more than juat, then, that h# should be credited for whatever of good may attend It in tti prosecution or follow ita termination; and aapacialty in such oases as the following, in which ha la the direct Instrumentality of the good deed accomplished. Col. Yell, of Arkansas, and the President, were old friend*. Tlie last letter which the brave soldier la supposed to have written was to Col. Polk, directing the advance of Col. Yell's pay due to bis family, lie was poor, and his famtlv were dependent upon him. Ha bad a young lad at Georgetown College, and we learn thle evening that the President hos adopted this boy. and wIM educate him and regard him as his own son; and that he will see to the comfort of the family. Here and there, in the history of th* work of slaughter in this war, there are little green epots. like island* in the desert, redeeming, to some extent, tbo general desolation; and this act of the Executive ia among them. To be sure, he could scarcely do less; but he could do no more. It is an incident associated with the history of the deadly struggle at Buena Vista, which posterity will read and admire. W.

Secretary Marcy, General Jesup, General Townson, and Colonel cooper have promised to be present. The Grand Jury yesterday found another bill against Turner, the book keeper of the Mechanics' Bank, charging him with stealing a cheek for $800. and obtaining tba money from the bank. This young man obtained from the bsnk the sum of fibH,000, in so cunning a way that there ia but one or two items of the whole sum on which he can be prosecuted. The Item on which this indictment is based, is a check of Messrs. Corner k Co.. which had been presented and cashed .by the cashier, and handed to Turner as bookkeeper to be cancelled, instead of doing which he put it in his pocket, and sent a young man with It to the bank the next day, and it was then cash ed a second time On his first trial. although the larceny of the check and obtaining of the money wan admitted, the Jury could not agreu An ordinance ie before the council* giving perm Union % to the Baltimore and Ohio railroad to run it* locomotive*. or at leant to walk them, through the city It is contended by Home, that If properly u*ed and made fbr tho purpose, there would be lcn* danger of accident than from the use of horse*, whilst it would save thirty or fortv thousand dollar* per annum to the company, by enabling them to do without their heavy team* of borne* Hroi a ami, Mn**v Mar*ft.?Transaction* to torn# rstcut are being made in U.
