The annual commencement ot the Medical De partment of this Institution, was held in the Cha pel of the University, Washington Square, on Tuesday evening. It was densely crowded with spectators?the middle part being reserved for the students, 1 all the other parts thronged by the lrientls of the pupils and supporters of the Institu tion, and among them a great number of ladies, watching with evident anxiety, the first great step in life of their sons, brothers and friends The large chapel was crowded to excess in every part, and many went away unable to obtain admittance. The choir was occupied with a very efficient band, which performed several beautiful pieces at inter vale, in the proceedings. ChancellorFkeylinqhuysen took thechairabout eight o'clock, supported by the other members of the faculty, consisting of Professors Mott, G. S Psttison, J. Revere, M. Payne, G.S Bedford, and J. W. Draper, together with several members ot the Faculties of Columbia College and College ol Physiciaus and Surgeons. Professor Mason read the 130th psalm, and of fered up a most beautiful prayer. General Tallmaok made u lew remarks on the genera! prosperity of the Medical School. It was established in 1841, and commenced with 209 stu dents ; in 1842,275 students; in 1843, 325students; and ut the present time it numbers 378. This was cert only much nwin&to the kind and talented professors who had lent their assistance in the good work ; and when he mentioned their names they would lully agree with htm. The gentleman then mentioned those belore enumerated, and each name was uttered with strong expression of appro bation, particularly that of Professor Draper. The Cha.ncel.lok then called the attention of those ussembled to the circumstance for which they met.

The parties ascended the platform about ten at a time, when the Chancellor read to them in Latin the necessary form, which each prescribed to a?d received the usual document. One of these indi viduals ?*xcited cousiderable attention, particularly among the ladies, he was a fine looking young man, but perfectly blind. This part of the proceedings having bceu gone through, the band in the choir struck up, "Home, sweet home." rrot. Draper came forward to deliver the address. He commenced by taking a cursory review of the transitory nature of all things, and proceeded to re mark upon the personal history of a physician, tracing the objects, expectations and friendships formed while studying together, and oberved that the moments of parting were the best for giving advice, and would avail himself thus of doing so. Ihe gentleman then proceeded to give some veiy excellent and able admonitions to those,present di recting them in their future course of action, that would not only bring honor but emolument upon them. And said those men who look upon ricnes as the grand object of human attainment are mis taken; if the choice of reputation or riches be be fore you take ihe formerand you will secure both? lor reputation is power?and power is wealth. The accidents which occur in the life of a man owe all their value to the use he makes of them. A collection of pearls is of little worth?it becomes an article of personal ornament only after the jew els are strung upon a thread. It is that invisible thread that gives the necklace its value. The gentleman then proceeded to show (hat the medi cal profession had been the greatest|benefactora of the human raee, and pointed out several instances. Their high standing in society was caused by their philanthropy and|iutegrity,and hoped that all would persevere to maintain the same poaition. He said that it was to them above all that the words of the ( poet most aptly applied:? "Above all pain-all passions and all pride, Above the reach of fl iitery'a baleful breath, The lint of lucre and the dread of death " He then recommended to them a steadfastness of purpose, and pointed out to them in tin- most glowing and feeling terms, the example of their blind fellow student In conclusion he said.that gui ded by these feelings and principles, in the course of years you may nspire to share in that fume which belongs to the highest name in the profes sion, and togratily that instinctive craving to be remembered in future times, which is the wish both of the good nnd the great. The genius of this temple now looks down upon us as witness ing the parting ? f frienrlu in this world lor ever There are friendships that never decay, there are thoughts which are never wiped out. The scene that is ending?the words of the speaker?may at some distant day, perhape in the forests of the far West, flash across your memories. May the recol lection find you discharging all the duties of virtu ous citizens, and in the possession of honor and prosperity The gentleman concluded his very able and talented address, of which this is but an outline, ainid a very strong expression cf approba tion. Professor Mason then made a brief prayer, and the business of the assembly terminated. Accident to thk Shetitckkt.?The steam pro peller Shetucket, Captain G. W.

[From our Correspondent.] Trial of "Big TUui icier, "-?Legal Skirmish ing?Increasing Crowds and Surpassing In terest. Hudson, March 19, 1845. As will be seen from a report of the proceedings in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, to-day, a step has at last been taken in the important prosecution of the aati-renters, and although it is not yet Cer tain that it will be carried through at this term, it is by far the most likely event. At 11 o'clock, the District Attorney made a mo tion to call on the case of Boughtou, on the rob bery indictment. This was opposed by counsel for the prisoner, ou the ground that he was unprepared; to sustain which, he submitted the affidavit of the accused that certain witnesses, whose testimony was of the last importance to prove his iunocence, were not in attendance ; besides, it was a matter ot great const quence to know in what mode a jury was to be selected, and whether the choice ol talesmen, in case any should be required, was to be left with Sheritt Miller, upon whom, on the per son who was robbed, the strong suspicion of the ac cused r?s'.s,us not perfectly free from a feeling hos tile to them District Attorney Theodore Miller, Etq., resisted the arguments in favor of postpone ment, aud was ably sustained by the Attorney General, John Van Buren, Esq. In a case ot thai great importance to the public peace, it was most desirable to dispose ot these indictments The whole country took an interest in them; the county of Columbia had incurred va6t expense in making preparation for these trials, and nothing but a regard for the rights of the prisoner, ought to act as a reason for putting off the investigation No possible injury could be done to him, it was contended, by proceeding; and whilst it was the business of the defence to he ready, having bad due notice of motion for trial, it. was net reasonable lor thnn to seek to avoid a fair inquiry on trivial pretexts, and it those witnesses were not forthcom ing, it was no fault ot the prosecution, but nntsi re main chargeable to the defence, from whose re missness it proceeded While this discussion was going pn, the court house was crammed full, and the anxiety of all to hear, showed the large place these trials have in the public mind. ^Counsel too, appeared to paitike ot this acutenesa of feeling, f mean those for the defence?who showed a disposition to con tend for every inch ot ground that mivht bv any means be turued to the advantage ot the defence, and it was quite apparent that their remarks were now and again tinctured with some acrimony. All thiB was duly relished by the audience more than 1 can well describe, and it is very likely that, as the trials progress, thev will have sntple opportunity to gratify their taste for that curious specit sof gladia torship called legal squabbling. Trouble is anticipated in procuring a jury, and yet, if gentlemen on each side would be content to par: with inconvenient fastidiousness, they might be very fairly served. Certainly, tew there are, who can be called entirely neutral, but there is a class who can discover a certain degree of founda tion for the complaints of the anti-renters, but whose fervent respect for law and order leads their to deprecate any infraction of the one or the other, no matter on what pretext it be perpetrated. A jury then, may be procured, hut not without s waste of much time, and many words. As far"as I can ascertain, the prisoners are in no degree daunted at the prospect before them, but in dulge in the anticipation of a certain acquittal ? Bnughton w ears any thing but a hopeful aepect, yet this may be attributnble to bad health, the confine ment having prayed upon him sadly. Persons who were intimutc with him his incarceration say he retains hardly uny c f his former looks ? Perhaps his Counsel may ingeniously raise the question of his identity, and e? give the prosecu tion ample room for the exercise of their ingenuity Mr. C Holding is fond of music, and his cultivation of the violin has, if I dont mistake, beguiled some weary moments. He looks cheeifui and ani mated, and by no means concerned with his *itua tion. There are, strange to say, no reporters here to chronicle thrse weighty legal proceedings excep that on. the part of the Herald, upon whose shoul ders will lail the onerous duty of culightening this republic on the investigation now proceeding it that part of it calledCotumbia county, in the State of New York. A. Court of Oyer and Terminer. Hudson, Wednesday, March 19,1S46 Judges Parker, Wilcoxson, Martin cad HclJndge, on the lunch The Court wu occupied from 9 o'clock till i t, in dis posing of a civilian commenced the previous day. The jury having retired? District attorney Mills* inid I will now move the trial of this indictment for robbery. 8mith A. BoroHTors was then biought into court, in the custody of the sheriff, and placed at the bar. Mr. Jordan observed, tint he wanted to ascertain what course would be followed in earn a talts of jurors wen required; to which the couit replied, it was better to leave that question till the proper time. Mr. Jordan replied on the part of his client, that he was disposed to undergo incarceration until another term, in onler to get an impartial jury. A strong feeling prevailed, but he would, in the face ot all these difficulties, advise him t itake his trial, but felt it necersnry to ascer tain the mode of selecting jurors. It was in the power ol tha Court to direct the sheriff to summon jurors from any locality, in order to obviate the objection. The Attorney General did not tee this was a question to be discussed at present; if the question ever should ar se, the prosecution, desiring impartiality, would see that the prisoner should have the benefit of every doubt and, nor would they imist that, it the question of sum moning talesmen should arise, the skeiiff' should select th1' jury. .VII. JOHUAH nc?uuwirujra iub iuuucsb Ul I 4113 rilllllil of the Attorney General, but felt himself bound to ace to hi* own interest!, rather than rely upon the disinterested magnanimity ot others. The Court said that it was enough to meet the que* tions as they arise, but did not see the necessity for act ing at present. Mr. Jordan replied that in this uncertainty they would not consent to go to trial, although hia client was anx ious to go to trial, and that in the lace of further confine men*, in his cell, which was obviously hurling his health When he got spitte d on the point of a reck, and his bark foundered, it was t:o In c to changehi course The Dist. Attorney wished it to be distinctly under stood that there was no desire to leave the selection of the jury lo the sheriff, en tl c part ot ihe prosecution. The Court was ot opinion that it whs boiler to proceed to trial, as inordinary cases, without making any condi tioia In thia stage of the proceedings the Judges consulted n short time,whilst counsel for the prisoner prepared ar.Js8i davit which he submitted !o the court, signed bybmilhA. Boughton. It let forth his conflniment on a charge ol robbery, and his consequent inability to make due prena rations for trial, that certain witnesses important to his defence were absent, and therefore alleged that he de clined a trial at present. District Attorney Miller declared the readi ness of the prosecution, at considerable trouble and expense, to dispose of these indictments. In view of these tacts, a strong case should be made out by the defence bo for* a postponement should be concurred in. Boughton'a affidavit hod declared he was unpiepored, in the absence of certain witne>ses, for his srisal. but had not stated what the nature of their evidecco should be. It appears no .f fort was made to summon these witnesses until the middli ot last week. In addition to this, counsel hod been served with due notice thot the prosecution was preparrd to take up the causes on the first day of the term. He it peati d trom the fact of the Court not being apprised ol tbe mate riality ot these witnesses, their application was not valid. The Court knew that th's was a transection which took place in tho county of ' olumbta. Why go to Renssclrr county for evidence! It appeared from the facts of their delaying to-seek their evidence until a few days ago?Horn tha tact of their going to the house of these witnesses en Monday, that pains bvllheen taken to s.cure the extraordinary t absence of these persons. Moieovt i there were great p"bljc consideratons why this postponement should not take place. Much Interest was felt not only here but all over the country? expense had been incurred, and were they to postpone this great cause, involving many interests, on a trivial pretext! It was important to nil concerned, ?nd lo the i ublic peace, to dispute of these cauaes A panel of (ix<y Ju nrs had been drawn under the conviction that now was the tiire, and he hoped the Court would tnke tha' view ol it. In addition, the State had sent one of its highest off! cera, the Attorney General, to participate in tho.-? trials; witnesses were subpoenaed, and they were willing, pre pared and ready to proceed with them * Mr. Jordan waa aware that the prosecutors bad under gone great labor, and were, as they professed to be, ready to try tho acousi d. He might be ready also to lest the.r innocence; but he apnrehtnded he was net going to de fend them. Ail care nad been taken to subpoena their witnesses, end diligent search hed been made lor them His fa her in-law swears that he did this all In good faith, as he declared on oath If it was of absolu'e importance that these trials should be proceeded with at this time, he would readily oancur in it, and the mere so, as being s landholder himself, he was interested in the preservation of the peace. Dr Boughton swears these witnesses an of importance, but they did not think proper to tell the prosecution what they would teatify to. On thes-cond Tuesday of the last t"rm they offrfed to go on, but it t ow happen* d they were not ready. It would be the last thing his client would do to willingly incur further confinement in the jail of Columbia, under the keeping ef his pan t i cular friend the Sheriff, who might treat him very well, but whoae presence v. as not extr mel; gratifying to his client. The Attoiiset Gens ral, (John Van Buren, Em ,) said that la hii views of the prosecution, he felt inclined tc proceed from a sense of public duty. Mr Jordan had said that the confinement of the prisoner and the presence ol the Sheriff were not agreeable to him. Thnt was usti ally tka aaae, ha thougnt. He baiiavad, with a desire to do lull justice, that the prisoner would Dot in eny way be prejudiced by <? pre* at trial. It appear ed that they had already declared their wrlling neaa to go to trial, if they were granted tha the privilege of selecting talesman. A? to the at,. 1 dance of their witneiaea, wn there any reason to believe that this testimony could be material, or that they could ever be procured? Whose fault waa it if they ? the lelenre, < n> ployed an incompetent agent, the prisoners father in law, te procure this testimony ? Why not any on Monday that they were not able to proceed I What he desired to say to the court was, that it be thought the motion was lor the rake of presenting the trial or one individual he did not know, he would oppose it; but those criminal transactions were all i onn?c*ed together, and as these prostcuticne were on the part of the people, in support of the laws ol the S ate, he Ml, a lesponsibiljty to proceed wi'h lliein forthwith, and that in the appointed oidtr If tha present triol fo. robbery were superseded, leiser chuiges would be. investigated, whicir would be the cau?e of great err;I arrr.gsrarnt Suppose it should happen to turn out that this was a perfectly quiet county for the last twenty-five y ears, anJ that a strangi r esmc dow n and excited ptaceable men to nets prejudicial to the livea of citizens, the court would tte tie necessity of making is salutary example, and uphold the laws. Although the fxpensert weie heavy, l.e woulu not, merely ior'.he sake of evading them, consent to tiy fire I the numerous miner offences, und no reason hut one- the likelihood of not do ing the prisoner justice?would he sufficient lor postpon ing the trial. 'i'he court heretoek a racoss for an hour, for dinner. At half past two, the Court resumed the session. During the whole day tire r- nm bad been quite full, but now became extremely throrged. No females were pre sent; the audience consisted ot stout, resolute-looking farmers, n-any ol whom were ol the ami-rent party. Mr. JohDs.v submitted avother affidavit rf'Dr Houghton, declaring it as his opinion that he would be able to take his trial at the next term. The Atto?sv Or- ns sal resumed his observations. He would not, as he f urd, object to putting off tbe trial of this indivi uut, :t he did not think it would lead to great em harrasriuiLnt, and witbin the bounds of possibility that it would bad to the postponement of all the trials The oveit acts alleged in this charge would be applicable to ?how the conspiracy also. He would readily confess that if he cculd not 1 ave a fair trial, it shoulu not come on from any motive;7*nd he cetildjdeclare from his own fte) ingg that there was no desire on h>s part to do him in jury, and he begged the Court to weigh narrowly th< sftidnvits submitted. The absence of tbe witnesses w as alleged upen no cflidavit of Mr Baily, but there was ne thi: g which made it apparent whether be was in Kings ton, in Canada, or rot- The counsel for deft nee had said they would not communicate the nature of the evidence, which might be all fair in order to trip up au opponent in a civil cane, but in one oi such magnitude as this, between the prisoner end the people, why this reserve? He re spectfully submitted to the Court that the possi bility of these persons giving evidence, if they could catch them, was not an adequate reason. Sup pose it could be shown that there ecirmo'icns ori ginated with a guilty man, why not uccept this fivot able time, ar.d nt once interpose the aim of authority 'o restore peace to tbe community With regard to the al lusion ot the District Attorney to lrim (the Aturney General.) he would be glad to attend at any time, without leelicg it troublesome, to give bis services in this inves tigation. These views be submitted to the Court with all deference, under a ssnse ot duty, und he hoped their boners would scrutinize ike application for a postpone ment before granting it. Mr. Jordan t: out- ht they were all capable of apprecia ting the anxiety od the part 01 the Attorney General for the safety ol the prisom r; end for bis part, if he abonMse ted any tbirg more, than arolhei it was such professions, intended 'o make it believed that they were not doing their bo?t to procure conviction ; and he never yet knew of a District Attorney or Attorney General who did not feel tnemsrlves hour a in duty to do so. He would ask no favors, nor would he take any. but dcsin d to sre the case tried on its merits. It wn:>. the first time in a Court of Justice that he had heard it said that putting eff one ceae prejudiced another. Ho was alway s taught to belteve tint cvtry tub stood on its own bottom,'as well in Court neout of it. He denied as bad been stated, that they admitted ?his morning their readiness to go to trial, if they had tbe aelectien of the Jury. He had. in review of he Doctor's silut tion, and in regard for the people of Columbia county, which perhaps was os strong us that of the Attorney General? advim d his client to go to trial rather than en counter the difficulties attendant upon his position. Dr. Bonghton swears positively that these evidences know certain facte? not thst he thinks tin y know them; and if nothing less would satisfy the Attorney Gerersl he (Mr. Jordan) was himself 'n-ndv to raake an atfidav.t that tin se iac'.s were til important to the pri soner. [The Attorney General mode some explanation } Mr- Jordan was sorry the Attorney General could Dot discriminate There was a difference between taking the alternative of going t&trial, rather than incur privu tions and difficulty, and being altogether latisfied to do so absolutely. Hebeheveu that a man, whe had aennnorx charged with grope, pointed nt bis cell, would be glad to go to trial without a single witnesr, to ovoid danger. He could, on looking round, see honest and honorable men nthat Court, among whom, if he were permitted to se lect jui or*, be would, at once, go to trial, with all hie disadvantages; hut he thought it hardly honorable, or just, or mrrcrtul?he would almost ray it was not profes sional, to at empt to drive This client to trial, ucpreoared as he was. Norrodykmw where the absent witnessce were, it is said; hut he (Mr. J ) was of opinion tomr body knew it. He did not know, but the same might he said of any person who w:-s not in sight The whole omount of the argument of the prosecution was, that because these men were absent, they did not lire anywhere. Until it becomes apparent to tbe Court that applications for poe ponement were made merely to ricspe trial. it?as un usual to reiusc such application; end he thought it never was practice'' in the first ipftauce, in which an accused person applied for delay. In a court of law it was gen* rally thought advisable to intimate to the ot posi'e party *h>tthe neture ol might be; but it was a fundamental principle, that no party should make urooi tuch disclosures, to fish up testimony for their own pur pose*. He h id showed the absence of malrrial w itnessss, showed due diligence, and the exercise of all the care Boughton could use to procure these wilnrises; besides, he swears, poaitivily, he was unable to find thim. Much might t e said st out the majesty ol the laws; but he thought that their majesty wss as much consult!d in allowing the secured to enjoy his tights wj'h stiict justice. There wss np dtrgrr c! an infraction of the ; esce by proroguing t> cur trials, and tbey now drmanded as n right such u disposition ol the mntter by the Court sa would be consist! nt with those rights and justice to the prisoner Judge Passes?It is the opinion of the Court that suf ficient reason has not been shown ; the trial, therefore, must proceed. Call a jury accordingly. Mr. Jopdan said ho hod one course left of which he would avail himseli it the Court gave hint till to morrow morning. He never knew a case forced on in this man Judge WiLcoxtow? Ii the gentleman states n sufficient reason, I have no objection to grant the application. Mr. Jordav? I have said what I have to ray, air. Judge WiLCoitoi*?Without an adequate reason, 1 will not content. Mr Joaooia?I do not are whether you do or not Judge Parker?I leave the decision to my brethren. I am satisfied to grant it if they judge it prep? r. The District Attormky had no objection if the time were sought to make nrej aration ; but to grant it for the pnrpo re of allowing the gentleman facilities for prevtr.t ingthe trial would be extraordinary. The Cci-KT granted the motion for a postponement till next morning, and proceeded to take up the civil calen der. nt 4 o'clock.
