W ATimunv* ?It Is said that the watermelon trad? form*, during the late summer and early fait, an important branch of the internal trade of Baltimore. Tbere are now employed in the trade upwards cf one hundred small schooners, which average a trip a week. The vessels engagtd is bringing the ntelons from those place* at a greato d stance from the city are employed for about six weeka, aad it u estimated hy those who transport them that the weekly receipts a re about three hundred thousand watermelons and one hundred and seventy-live thousand cautaleup* At the beginning of the season the watermelons bring flftutn dollars per hundred, and the price gradually reduces until they will not sell for more than two d<>ll*r? per hundred, and averaging for the season s boat six dollars per hundred. Tift aggregate trade per week la, therefore, some eighteen thousand dollars. The rantaleups average about three dollars per hundred, aggregating tfve thonsind two hundred and flf'y dollars perwe-k. The trade of this citv in the tame fruits ii mu<*h larger and more profitable than is generally supposed. Six or eight cargoes of melons a day Is no extraordinary arrival, and thty are re dlly sold and go via railroad, wagon, and canal, to feast the palates of the upper country. The present season has been unfavorable to the production of melons !n consequence of the severe drought at the time of growing and ripening, and the result is that there are comparatively few of first quality brought to market The trade increases with each succeeding, year, as the fanners And the raising of melons the most profitable rrop; and. thougu the season is so short. It may yet become of still greater Importance than at present. Already it affords employment to abvNt one third of the oyster-vessels, which ar? debarred from that trade in the summer.?AUja*drim Gazettt.

Tbe last case of the kind la that of Mr John Wagner, who waa arrested y?*trrdsy by offleer Yearman, for having in bis possession a tine milch cow, which had been stolen from Mr M Caton. Mr. Wagner appealed before Justice Donn, who ordered the retnrn of the cow. The prosecutor had no idea of charging Mr. Wagner with stealing the animal, after learning his reputation and standing as cltiaen, and he was discharged, and Mr. Wagner was all tbe more concerned for the recovery of the money,and tbe arrest of the person irom woon oc Dongnt the cow. He fuyt he knows him, and was told by the magistrate'to ar? if it him at sight, which be determined to do. Purchasers of cows should be sure of the title of the dealer.

Aside from the pleasure that the public will experience in theconsclousneiaof having contributed toward ?o deserving an object, they will find at Arlington pure freeh air, pleasant groves, an excellent band of music, (Withers'), a large and excellent dancing saloon, and abundance of facilities for passing the day pleasantly.
