Brit lath ami American Ktlatlon*. Ill looking carefully over our tiles ol Knglish papers, and judging front the tenorof our private correal ondence, we tind that the Hritish government are unanimous in their anxiety tor an immediate eeiilenient of the Ihuuid.irt (.Question, and that all further quibbling will be obviated by the negotiations being carried on with vigor, und tree from those const.inilv occurring delays, wlticli have marked ull former periods of lid agitation. We hear that the party now in power are undying thenisr|vt-? to the question with the utmost diligence, and v. h sincere hopes < I such an adjustment as w ill be a! honorable and satisfactory to both countries. Of the arrival of the Acadia in England, with in: nee of the appointment of Commissioners hy the State wl Maine, a '(decided impression was created by the news. It was hailed as a most auspicious furtherance of the views entertained hy the government, and was generally construed into a di?, lion on tire part of America, not only to aid in the adjustment of this particular difficulty, hut also as betokening a wi.-li to soften the asperities 011 other matters which have unfortunately been allowed to occttiiy public attention Inr beyond their real merits, and to have assumed an apparent importance which no circttinstances attending them have in any degree justified. The commercial community in England are now t ally alive to the bearings of all the questions at issue ?and among the leading features in producing the present peaceable aspect, we are happy in noticing that steam navigation is universally allowed to have bi -n mainly instrumental. The North American sT< liners and their unvaried performances are now the subject of observation throughout Europe, and it cannot be questioned but that their establishment is ivw tie: leading feature in the political and commercial r< lations of the country, and it is die equally boundsu duty of both to encourage the fulld evelopemeat of such a mighty enterprise, as it is the interest of every one to promote its fullest and most complete success All trilling cen-iderations of local prejudices must be forgotten in considering such u question, and let us not seek to mar the results of one of the greatest achievements of modern tunes, by giving way to any selfish feelings, but rather let us cheerfully unite in rendering a full measure of justice to ail uudcriaking fraught with such inconceivable blessings. Although a vast deal has already been accomplished in bringing tha public to acorrect understanding of th interests involved, and of the changes necessarily oceuring through Atlantic steaming, still there are many prejudices yet to be overcome, and many absurd notions yet to be dis|*-lled. Since the tunc of its first establishment its full success has inn degree been retarded, in conae pience of the cloud which has so long hovered around the political atmosphere. Every department of trade has suffered front this cause, and it is the present seeming certainty of its removal that causes us to congratulate the people of both countries on the better pros- 1 pects awaiting them. We teel assured that as the ' various in att rs of dispute are one by one disposed ' ?.f, wil ourinutu.il interests continue benefitted ' and improved, mid we shall then be placed in a position 10 re ap a!! good that can be derived iroin the r ~1 i.it and speedy steam communication now s< firmly established. Tlic Ciinnrtl l.luc of Steamers. We have, and we believe the people of this couu try generally, have, been much pleased with the remarks of the London Standard in relation to the above line of steamers. This excellent journal has from time to time constantly urged the vast importance of every one uniting, to promote, by all possible means, the interest and success of such great natioual projects. I hi the occasion of the Arcadia's last arrival in England, with the news of the appointment of commissioners on the part of the State of Maine, the Standard hailed the announcement as one ot national importance, and in commenting on the manner of its promotion, had the lolloping remarks on Atlantic steamers. They an -o peculiarly applicable at this present moment, that w e apjteud them. j l'ue continuous punctuality in the receipt of 0111 , \tiic i an advices is now again instanced in the Acadia' i; rii ?l. an J the occasion atiur.U fitting opportunity of call- ! in_ it en.ion to the inanv public benefits unit advantage, i a. r..--.i I.-. ..-?-I - r . . .... u?.ii>vw vintua wni|itnv miu pvncci lunumm Ol ev urv lutv connected with tins extensive branch of steam com- ' mu.,ie ntion, an I it giv ,-s ut extreme pleasure to render | Kin li . o ig. atui.ition as we feel belongs to the spirit? managers of thi great national undertaking, for the unwearying manifestations ot energv which the whole eon i Joel of ;iie- ships so abundantly and signally displays.?

MRT BENNETT'S LETTERS. No. IV. M.imreai-, l-l July, 18J2 We arrived here yesterday morning at elevei 'clock, from Saratoga, Lake George, Ticonderwga. Lake Clmtiiplain, St. Johns and La Prairie. The nil,it- , - tin- ino-t delightful I have travelled. Wi met on our way all kinds ol beauty, wildncss am pii tnre~|iie scenery On Tuesday morning we lei ilie I'iiit * I States 1 Intel at Saratoga, in one of Keen V P. line ol stages, running to t Menu's Falls am Lake i-aorge. Tina line is formed of Kf>L-nditi cat lie-, and fine horses?accommodations to thravelling public* ol the highest character. We started at three o'clock in the afternoon from Saratoga, and reached Caldwell at sun down. The road was extremely good. There had been several gratslul showers on the day belore, and the dust was as low und quiet as tancv stocks in Wall street, or purity and patriotism in Washington. We were also lavored, expressly to order, with a very fine thunder storm, and a lew very capital peal- ol thunder and flashes of lightning. These gave interes! and variety to the somewhat sombre ucene. We crossed tilenn's Falls in a burst of evening light, coming from between two dark clouds, and no one could view that interesting bunch of cataracts in miniature to more advantage. The road to Lake i leorge from this place is truly beautiful It passes along some of the ravines, or "sleepy hollows," between the bills that separate the waters of tlie Hudson and St. Lawrence. Nothing can be imagined more beautilul than to see the last rays of the evening sun falling over the fairy-looking woods that cover those hill tops. The deep green of the foliage seemed to have caught |a silvery appearance. The apprnuch to Lake Georg ia V|'I*V i ?f a III ll III. It u }|V lr..^li :. 11.1 n.*ve to us?we having,never becnjin that purt of the earth liefore. The " little fellow" shouted as loud as he could, as soon as he espied tlie clear, blue and green water, glancing in the descending sun, from the brow of tho rising ground that forms the ridge ot separation between the north and the south. We stopped at Caldwell's Lake House for the night, and it is without exception, one of the cleanest and finest houses that I ever entered. Every piece of furniture is as pure and fresh, as if new. It is kept in first rate style, and is a most delicious spot to linger in for a couple of days. Here is the head of L ike George, surrounded with the mostro. mantic hills, covered to the top with trees, and wn'Ung forth a fragrance truly refreshing. During the full moon the appearance of the Lake, with the small steamer laying at tin shore, and the calm pellucid waters shining like silver beneath, cannot be surpassed in die wide world. Soon after our arrival, one of the big guns was lired oft' from the deck of the steamer, and the report was reverberated from the hills for several seconds, and seemed like a long peal of thunder losing itself gradually in the distance. In the morning, we rose early, probably at five o'clock?and in going out and taking a turn in the village, the fragrance from the mountain woods came down so thick and refreshing, that one would fonor it /./?ii!.J l\u r?nt !? ??/* vliir* oli?/?u ?'?'? l' -- breakfast. At half past six, we sat ck>wn to a most excellent breakfast, rendered the more delicious from the balmy atmosphere, the clean house?the tidy and attentive servants, and the tmU tntemble of this most admirably conducted establishment. Hero you have fresh trout in every possible mode of cookery. On taking our leave of the Lake House, we then embarked at seven o'clock on board the steamer Win. Caldwell, a beautiful little boat, kept as clean md bright as the hotel. The morning was truly deirious?a line cool breeze?a bright sun?a few white clouds to moderate his brighter beams, 'aptain L-.irruhe commands the boat?a very quiet, gentlemanly, intelligent man. In her cabin, he had i new chart of the Lake constructed by himself on a large scale, and the principal islands, headlands oid ii I'unluins, all named and marked out One ol hem which we passed, not being as yet christened, we gave it the name of Dome Island, from its peculiar torm in rising out of the water very like the dome of the Capitol at Washington. The name was accordingly marked down. The voyage down the Lake is truly delightful at this season of the year. The clear water, the translucent wave, the picturesque islands, the wild mountains?the steep rocks?the rugged ravines, every variety of scenery passed by, give the traveller a perjietual feast in the beauties of nature, if lie has a soul capable of enjoying such scenery. 1 do not believe there is any country in Lurope that can surpass?perchance hardly equal the beauty anil picturesquencss of Lake Irorge. Many of the islands are delicious little spots, chosen places for pic-nic and fishing parties. While we passed down, we tgued a fishing party from Aliany on the shore of We of these islands. There was the tent?their cooking npparatus?their little lag (lopping in the wind on the top of a pole?their mat drawn op on the beach, and they themselves >usily engaged in preparing their breakfast of fine, it, fresh trout, caught by themselves from the ver\ waters in which they were washed and cooked. 1 ould siiend a month about I.hUm Cenr?? ..n<t -hores, and every day would be as delightf ul us tin preceding. About Id o'clock we reached lite landing at the border end ol the Lake, and took the stage lor Ticonderoga on Lake Chuinplain. Here the road crosses and recrosses the streum that run" out ot Lake George into Lake Chutupluin. We stopped 011 our way, and took a view of the falls formed by this stream. In about an hour we reached the old tort of Ticonderoga, where we dismounted, and took it view of the ruins?the broken walls, the decaying arch?and the oid gloomy caverns that ar* now open to the light of day. At one o'clock, we arrived at the Pavillion, a very tine hotel on the hanks ot Lake Chain, lain, where the Whitehal st -aui' i - Mop an .I take up passengers for Canada ami 'be lovver end of the Lake. At this place there is a . it 11?* grove on the shore,culled the "Elssler Grove." Hut 1 must stop short?the mail is closing. Drar> ? The Rev. James March, IJ.

District Attorney. Jilt 7?William Scott alius Wells, an Englishman, aged about 30 years, was tried on a charge of grand lar cony tor sieanng iw in gol. in<l silver coin, lrom the trunk of Wm. F. Bradley, on tt. .'1st June. The prison er boarded nt the house of Ni r?. Baxter, corner of the Bowery and Walker street, im ?mpany with compluinam and the evening previous to .lie time the money was missed Bradley counted it ill pr> -ence of prisoner and replaced in his trunk. Scolt inarmed complainant the dnj previous that he had no money, and after the tiunk hud been rilled, Bradley hearing money rattle in prisoners pocket w out to .Mrs. Baxter and told her that he :usp? cled Sro'.t ha.lstolen his money from this circumstance, as lis had ,?revi?usly stated lie was short of funds. She rcphed that it coul 1 not be so, as he had just paid her for a weeks' hoard, and on showing the money which was in half dollars, Bradley immediately idi nti'fied one of tie pieces us having been in his trunk, from the tact that a piece had been cut from it. A skeleton key that would unlock the trunk of Bradlay was found in an out house in the yard, and asmall threo cornered file was also foumi in tho room of Scott, stuck in the ceiling. When the prisoner was arrested about $16 in apecie was lound upon him. Bradley stated in his examination that hu come to thiscity for the purpose of going to London, to recover jCJ30,000 left him and his father by a deceased relative in England The defence conducted by Wm. M. Trice and J. M. Bates, Esqs., presented n letter purporting to have been written by J. L. Hawkins, of Connelsvillu, Ta.,on the 1th of August, 1341, and addressed to Josiali Steen, of Washington, 1). t'., recommending Wm. Scott as a portrait painter of considerable talent. Henry Peters .Gray, jiortrai painter of this city, was called to the stand on the part ol the prosecution,and stated that the prisoner applied to inn. for assistance when he, thiough the aid of the Artists Association, procured the sum of fiii, which he gave him and advised him to Re back to Connclsv iIf, Pa. The prisoner was ably defended by Mr.Price in summing up. and the prosecution tvas equally sustained by Mr. Whiting in a short sprech to thejurv. The Court charged the jury hrietfy.and after an absence of about three quarters of an hour they returned a verdict of not guilty. Margaret McKinney, alias Fee, was triad on a charge of assault and battery, with intent to kill her male infant, on the night of the 20th of January last. It was proved by prosecution, by the affidavit of VVilliam Calhoun, and the testimony of 'i'homas O'llare, that on the above named evening about 6 o'clock, they saw prisoner proceeding towards the foot of -.'1st street, with a child in her arms. Rn 1 thnt when she reached the wl urf she looked about to s.-e if any one was in sight, and then threw tha handle she hail in her arms overboard. Calhoun immediately r;ui tow arc's the water, and on recovering the bundle it was found to contain a lino mnle infant, whose immersion in the cold water had caused it to scream lustily. O'llare stopped prisoner, while she was in the act of running away, but she denied all knowledge of the transaction. The defence, conducted by Messrs. Shaler and Price, asked the reading of the prisoner's examination before th< police, in which she admitted the truth ot the allegations made against her, but attributed the act to partial insanity existing at the time, produced by the abandonmen' oflier husband. Joxvthvx Lovr.jor, dentist, with whom prisoner had lived as a sen ant on the 1st ot Januniv, at the time the child was born, testified that after the birth of the child she behaved very stubborn -n I refused to answer questions put to her. She left his house on the 3d of the same month and lesidol with ( atlianne C ah art, who also stated that she appeared out of her mind and acted very st lage tow aril* her child. J nix J. Phillips, who was keeper of the female prison in the To--.lis at the time prisoner w as committed, state I that he Co.isi.leml tier partially insane and ordered her to be watched for foar she would destroy herself. She remained so for many w eeks afterwards, but finally recovere t. and at present w as one of the neatest and best behaved , ei sons (-online 1 in the cells. Wvi, M. Pit it i , Ksq. in addressing the Court, previous to the delivering of tho charge to the jury by the Jteoorder, contended that as partial insanity had been proved in a most satisfactory manner, at the time the crime was committed, the intent, so necessary in the ev e of the law to prod u.-e con vie lion, was shown not to exist, and therefore a verdict of acquittal was the only one the jury could render. in'i oun rn.r geu rnai mcjcviuriicci 01 insanity on the part of prisoner, ns produced in court, were very slight, and the jury, after a.i absenceol live minutes returned e verdict ol guilty,! ut recommended lier strongly to the mercy of the court. The court then sentenced her to two years imprisonment in the Stale prison, it being the low est teun in their power, and then adjourned to Kiiday morning at eleven o'clock.

After an ordinance or resolution has passed both , branchns of tlie Common Council it must be presented to the Mayor for his signature, and unless returned by him in ten days it becomes a law without his aid. If he refuse to sign and interposes his veto, it must be read in each i hoard, entered upon the minutes and published in the cor1 potation papers. After the expiration of ten days, the same question run be rcco aside red, and if passed by a inn jority ol votes becomes a law notwithstanding bis veto It will thus ho seen that his veto power is inoperative against a majority.

This is u very nice place for a small parly; every thing is so neat and quiet. It is a flourishing town too, filled with amiable and lovely women. We are now honored with a visit from your city of a new military company, called the City Guards, the best drilled and the finest looking corps we ever saw. It reached here on Saturday evening and was received with a salute and cavalcade by torch light, headed by the Greys of this place. We are determined that the Guards shall not forget ua after their arrival back to New York. The Citv Guards numbers sixty-one men, rank and file. Their appearance is truly magnificent and does great credit to the several gentlemen who have been most active in organizing and sustaining the spirited corps. There lias been nothing left undone in order to make this the crack company of New York. We understand from several sources that the historv of this company, although short, has been brilliant; they have organized and equipped themselves entirely, and have even equipped their band in white coats and new caps tn the short snace of seven months, besides carrying away to tneircamp the above number of men, which we believe is larger than any company has taken from your city for several years. We heard a prominent military gentleman remark that he has seen several military regiments in this country and Europe, but never saw a company equal this. We ourselves observed that the general appearance of the men und officers were verv good. We understand that a grand military ball is to be given, to which all the beauty and fashion of Bridgeport will go. If possible I will send you an account. So lookout for saoiethingrich and racy. P.
