THE NEW YORK VESSELS SEIZED BY THE STATE OF GEORGIA. – On the 25th of this month the two New York vessels seized by order of Governor Brown in the harbor of Savannah, as a reprisal for the arms purchased for Georgia, which were taken possession of by our Metropolitan police, are to be sold by auction; and up to this time Superintendent Kennedy has not delivered up the portion of the arms still in his keeping. These vessels are the property of New York citizens, whose interests will of course be sacrificed if the Police Commissioners continue in their obstinate course, and do not deliver up these arms to the agent of Georgia in this city. Should the vessels be sold, as ordered by Governor Brown, the owners, we suppose, will only have to look [to?] the Police Commissioners for indemnity by an action in the courts of law.
