It is with heartfelt pleasure we observe the forti tude with which they bear their losses. There ia no re. inning, no despair, no sullennets; but a calm, determined spirit, which must carry them up again. Most of the dry good* jobbers are untouched; so of the hardware merehunts, end a number ol the heavy houses ate out of the limits of the burnt district.

The only life lost that to heard of, was a poor woman In Third street. Amidst all the distress, there were those around who added to the calamity by stealing. Among others, the Rev. < 'eo 8. Holmes had about $SOO stole, which he had gathered up, by great economy, on o Methodist preacher's f alary. He also lost a large numbtr of valuable menu seripts, the labor of twenty years. To show the rapidity of the Are, wc may mention that a gentlman of our acquaintance arrived at the American hotel, about one o'clock, and leaving his trunk, walked t ut to see the flr?, which was then nearly a quarter of a mile off. In a short time he returned, and found the ho tel in flame* He lost his trunk, with nearly all his cloth ing and papers, and a considerable sum of money. One r?aflon of the rapidity with which the Are spread, Is to be found ia the extraordinary dryness of the weather for two weeks past. We have not had a shower of rain in that timo, with one trifling exception. Every particle ol wood in the houses or the city, was a* cry a* tiader. We regret to learn that Samuel Kingston, has been missing since the Are was raging on Thursday afternoon. Ha was list seen going into his burning office ?

Trial of Nicholas S. Gordon for tine murder of Amus Spraguc. Monday Mornihu, April 14 [I may as well Estate here that the stain? *aid to be a blood stain?on the sleeve of tho shirt found in Gordon's chamber, has been submitted to a chcmical analysis, the result 01 which was stated Saturday afternoon by the At torney General to be not unfavorable to the prisoner ] On the opening of the Court this morning, Mr. Curry, for the prisoner, resumed and concluded hn opening ar gument. He dwelt fur some time on the character of the evidence which had been presented by the government. It was purely circumstantial, and on this account would require a greater degree of careful scrutiny on the part of the jury. In making this scrutiny or examination, the jury must bear in mind certain admitted truths; the first, that each circumstance must stand alone, and depend, r.ot upon the other circumstances, but the testimony hearing directly upon itself; the second, that'each cir cumstance must be fully established before any infe tence can be drawn from itj the third, that the circum stances must not onlv tend to the establishing of the fact charged, but ihev must positively exclude every other hypothesis which might be presented. Mr. C. then pissed to an examination of the evidence in relation to the guiit of John Gordon, the record of whose conviction bad been offered as prima facia evidence that he committed the murder. He thought that he should be able to show that John Gordon did not and could not have committed the murdar. The Government had not offered a particle of positive evidence to show that John Gordon was any nearer the place of murder when it was committed, than hundreds of others residing in the vici nity. He was seen going towards his home at half past 2 o'clock ; he must have been at home at 3 o'clock. Mr. Sprague was last seen at half past 3 o'clock within ten minutes walk of the place of murder. John Gordon was ngain seen at half past 4 o'clock ; at neither time did he have a gun, or a coat resembling the one found in the swamp. It was for thejury to judge whether John Gor don could have exchanged his clothes alter 3 o'clock, went to the place ot murder, killed Mr. Sprague, secreted the gun and coat, returned to his home, again exchanged liis clothes, and called on the Kingston's, three quarter* of a mile distant, at half past 4 o'clock. Mr. C. next glanced at the evidence relating to the gun found in the swamp. The chief witness who identified it as having belonged to either of the Gordon's, was Abner Sprague, jr. Ho saw a gun very strongly resembling It, iuthe possession of John Gordon, the Friday before the murder was committed Ho met Gordon in the read, locked at the gun a few minutes, and the two then separated. Mr. Haskins and his wife had Been Gordon's gun the day before: the farmer had previously had it two or three weeks in his posses sion, and had examined it with the view of purchasing it, and both cf them swear this is not the gun they saw. Mr. C. went over the other evidence in relation to the gun -that given by Mr. Almy and hi* clerk wes only to the fact that a gun, as appeared by a paacil mark in their tiook, was sold to " N. Carton" Neither of them recol lect, or pretend to state any thing farther than this. That given by the negro Francis, that he left this gun with Almy lor sale, was not sufficient?ho only identified the gun from its general appearance, and from the fact that a screw was missing irom the lock, :md that* screw, not properly a gun screw, was now in that place. Mr. Cur ry nere took the gun, and showed to the jury that two tcrews, neither of them gun screws, were now in the lock. Mr. Curry also showed that there was a mark absut the gun by which any person who had ouce exam ined it, could identify it. The stock was in two pieces, and one portion was much darker colored than the other. '1 was *trange Francis and the other witnesses made no mention at this. The ramrod of the gun was only traced to Nicholas Gordon through the testimony of Benjamin Waterman, or Ben Kit. Mr William Sprague had testifi ed that he did not think Kit a competent witness; and Gen. Carpenter had sworn that Kit told him he was brib ed to swear ns be did. Mr C. did not believe i>"r. Sprague had bribed Kit, but the feet followed that Kit had told a slanderous lie to Carpenter. The jury could judge what reliance, in a case like this, should be placed upon his oath. Mr. Curry next passed to the coat found in the swamp. Oae or two witnesees think they have seen the prisoner have b iHuni. onoau Kietd .-Wears she has seen tho Gordon'.i hnve and won tn* v.iry coat; but it had been proved that Susan Field had acknowledged she had sworn to what she knew nothing ubout; and the witness who was colled to show that she had described Gordon's clothes, before the clothes were taken, admits thit she said nothing about the color of what she termed Nicholas's old coat. Besides this, the two 8'ones, the very nearest neighbors of the prisoner, and two or three other near neighbors, had sworn that they never saw him have this coat. The pistol, Mr. Curry said, had not been identified by any witness. Susan Field had seen a pistol in Gordon's store, but no one pretended that any pistol had been (ecu iu Gordon's possess on directly resembling this. The evidence in relation to the foot prints was tho roughly gone over by Mr. Curry, and the conflicting testimony on this subject completely silted. He thowed to thejury what every one of them must have marked from the testimony to the point, that the tracing and mea suring of the foot-prints so near the house as had been sworn to, was imaginary, to say the least oi it. [Your renders, who have read the evidence on this point, can not help agreeing with Mr. Curry in this con'lusion ]? He afterwards referred particularly to the fact, that the measure ot the width ot the track aid not correspond with John Gordon's boot He also dwelt upon the (act that a great many pei sons had passed over Iho very ground of "lese tracks, from Gordon's house to Hawkin's Hole, on the Monday after the murder. They must have inter cepted and crossed these tracks?but they did not see them; and the men who traced them the day after, pro fessed to have seen no other tracks. Mr. Curry next referred to the man seen in the vicinity of Dyer's bridge; he was undoubtedly the murderer, but he wis not John Girdon; he. was a larger and taller man, as had been worn to by four witresse."; and besides this, John Qor don's boot would not fill his tiack i wiuth, by an eighth o; an inch. Mr. Curry concluded his argument at 1 o'clock P M Ot course the brit f sketch I have given of it will sot pass for a full outline, even, of what occupied four hours in the delivery. This afternoon, Mr. Rodger<, also for the prisoner, will mske his closing plea. There is a strong probability that Gordon will be ac quitted. The worst that is much feared by his friend* iB, ? t.at the Jury will not agree. Your*. C. W.

[Correspondence of the Herald 1 Boston, April 14,1845. Great Increase of Manufacturing ? New Mill Building?Old Ontt Enlarging? Steam vs- Water ?Another Cantonman Arrived?Election in the 9th District ? Sketch of the Daily Papert of Bos ton, tfC., fyc. There is a great ruah among " our first men" in the manufacturing hue about these days. One would think by the movements that Clay was Pre sident of Alleghania. and that a full-blooded whig OongreBS was to meet at the capital on the firs'. Monday ot December next. The cries of ruin to the manufacturers, in ease Polk was elected, are all lorgotteu, and the tariff seems, to all appearance, to have got a lite lease ct a thousand years. The present tariff gives the cotton and woollen manu facturers a great advantage, which is constantly kept from the public eye by the ingenious expedient of adopting high piices, and putting a moderate per centum thereon. By this means many import ant foreign fabrics are entirely kept out of the coun try, and the monopoly ot our markets at their own prices, given to the American manufacturers. Encouraged by this state of affairs, which, by the way, bas poured the money into the coffers ot the manufacturing companies almost without stint or measure, our capitalists are preparing to go the w bole figure on these branches of business. Four ot the wealthy companies at Lowell are making very extensive additions to their mills, two very Urge mills have recently been erected, and five new ones are to be built as soon as possible, be sides a new establishment for making cotton and woollen machinery. These new projects, as you will Bee, must involve a very large investment of capital, and add greatly to the immense quantity of cotton and woollen goods now turned out daily at Lowell. There are not water privileges enough for all the new mills contemplated, and some of them are to be worked by steam, which, after all, is but little more expensive than water P >wer, when we consider the many uses for heat in these mills, and the wonderful improvements that have of late years been made for economising heat I would mention also, en passant, that a very he.ivy company hts been started in this city for the manufacture of cotton goods by steam cc.-oss the bay at Chelsea, at the head of which is that princely merchant Robert G. Shaw, Esq. This company is going ahead fast. The ship Heber arrived here yesterday from Can ton, in 93 days, with 10,427 packages of teas, and some other China aoods. This is a made up voy age, by severai Bobton shippers, and the cargo will probably be sold here at auction. This arrival is the apt occasion for another glorification on the part of the Boston quid nunca, who love' to prate wiout the wonderful race of rivalry with New Yi.rk that the city of notions is running. There is to be another trial to elect a member of C"ogress in the ninth district of this State, on Mon day, the 28th met. There have already been seve ral unsuccessful trials in that district, the principal candidates being Henry Williams, ot Taunton, the late representative, known by the sobriquet of "no meat Williams," and Artemas Hale.Etq., a wealthy manufacturer of that district. There is a demo i ratic majority in the district; but it cannot be cen tered upo'u Williams, and it is a piece ot folly for Mm to run. He will be run down, but there is no great chance ot Hale's election, the abolition vote n?t coalescing with the whig. Williams is a man of some talent, but so diffident that he appears to gr -at disadvantage. He is a single man, and it is said, because he never had the courage to. pop the question. I have been thinking upon a pressing theme, and P' rhapa it will not be uninteresting to your readers, if f speak out touching the daily papers of this same ci y of notions. Ot the sixpennies, the Daily Ad' vertiser lakes the lead in matters ot respectability, but not of circulation, or actual influence. The d lily edition does not exceed eighteen hundred. In politics, it is a<j you are well aware, an old hun ker whig, viewing even the most trivial improve ments or enterprises through political specs, which mc besmeared all over with bigotry. So much for the " repectable daily," as it is universally called here in fioston. Next comes the Morning Pott, a paper that goes strong for democracy, but not so much for democracies sake, as for love of the fis'.ies. The Post is edited ostensibly by Charles O. Greene, who can write an excellent six line jurtigraph, while men of greater calibre do the 1' auers Circulation about twenty-two hundred. Next comes the; Courier, with its old practical printer for an editor, J. T Buckingham. He writes well, and generally with a good deal of judgment, but he is a twattler, and has notfgot the confidence of either feds or locos. He tried to come the " native" business, but it was a flash in the pan The Courier circulates nearly two thon b ind, and enjoys a large advertising patronage. It is a fast friend of the Hon. Daniel Webster, and " Hi rough the furnace unihrinkinr. hi? item wotiM pursue, To shield him and guard him, or perish there to*." The Atlas, the acknowledged head of the Whig party in Boston, is the largest paper'published in tins city, jand the most hasty and inconsiderate and foolish in its course; without tact or judgment; often lending the party where they are loth to fol I'-'.v?yet it is conducted in many respects, as re gards lio vnnous departments, with liberality and judgment. It lias heretofore depended more upon donations from liberal men in its party than on ita own resources tor support, having never proved a profitable or even paying concern. Circulation aWout two thousand. Of evening papers, there's the Mercantile Journal, a real old maid of a paper, seven columns deep iu whiggery, moral reform, re gion, humbug, &c , and is mainly supported by ti-e saints. It is edited by Capt. Sleeper, the man that writes those eternal nothings over the signa ture of " Hawser Martingale." Circulation about sixteen hundred. Then there's the "Little Tran *crip\," which it will be the height of rudeness to speak against,inasmuch as it is edited by a lady .and shea Miss. Well, to say the truth,iti^apretty little evening paper, and h.is ever been a favorite with families. It serves up a light dish suitable for a genteel tea-table. Circulation about three thou sand copies. Next is the .Evening Traveller, anew pper, about the size of the Transcript, et good ap pearance, and nrutral in politics. 1 havemy doabts of its long continuance, the ground being already so well improved. At the he?d of the penny press, and the pioneers of them all, stand the Daily Mail, and The Times, the best newspapers in this section of Alleghania. These two papers circulate thirteen thousand daily. This I learn trom good authority. They may It II larger stories for effect, but this is probably the sirrulniion. The Timet supports the present ad m.lustration ; the Mail is neutral. Then thare'a the Bee, an excellent penny paper, published and E'hted by practical printers, neutral in politics? cir culation five ?to seven thousand. Last comes The Chronicle, |the abolition paper, which don't circu I-tie at all, bm is supported, tor the good of the cause, hy^donations. 1 had almost forgotten the American Eaelr, a little " native" penny, lately Blurted, with snout two thousand circulation. It is conducted with a sprinkle of spirit. So much for Boston papers; and what I have told you is very nearly correct in all particulars. Thus we have twelve daily papers published in Bostoi, with an i?^rrgate circulation of 42,000 copies per diem, mi'i .i population of 120,000.
