Had they been ab.e tti pa*?, much of their contents would have been fctoied and consumed. Of the 1200 Louses which were estimated as a number lost, about 700 were dwellings, and we suppose at least 4 Ooo persons have beenthruwa out of house and home. The whole l?ngth of the burnt district is about one I mile?the average breadth about one hundred and sixty yards ? malting an area of about sixty acres The A?e says:?"We can give no idea, on paper, of the I distress which prevails?thousands are left destitute?men who yesterday were worth thousands, are now bankrupt.

Some are wholly rainod, many much erip pled, but we believe the majority can goon a* usual, and yesterday they were busy getting place* of buiine** and otHcea. It is with heartfelt pleasure we observe the forti tude with which they bear their losses. There i* no re. pining, no despair, no sullennesa; but a calm, determined ipirit, which must carry them up again. Mo*t of the dry good* Jobbers are untouched; to of the hardware merchant*, and a number ot the heavy house* ate out of the limits of the burnt district. And it fortu nately happen*, too, that'a large amount of groceries from ihe eaat, for the city, had not arrived. Kensington ia well nigh annihilated In the morning, and at noon, the atieeta of this ward were thronged with a crowded and buay population, numbering some six thousand aonl* !?in the evening, not a single inhabitant was lelt on the dasacratod streets and square*, and rain (talked supreme. Nearly all the good* and houiehold property in thi* ward were lo*t The Are raged with such uncontrollable fury, and the distance necesiary to move waa so great, that the frightened and flying inhabi tant* had only time to depart with one load upon the'r l.acks, or in such conveyance a* they could procure at a moment * warning, and to return and And their houiea in flame* and inacceasible! The Oiztlir give* the following additional itema ol In terest : A ft i em an had hi* f*ce burned *o raw, the blood ran fnm it. Mr. Malcom F.eech was on the top of hi* warehouse, looking at the flre, and when coming down, wa* injured pretty severely by a fall. The only life lo?t that to heard of, wo? a poor woman in Third street Amidst all the distress, there were those around who added to the calamity by stealing. Among others, the Pev. <?eo 8. Holmes had about $S00 stole, which he had gathered up, by great economy, on o Methodist preacher's t alary. He also lost a large numbi r of valuable menu aaripts, the labor of twenty years. To show the rapidity of the flre, we may mention that a gentlman of our acquaintance arrived at the American hotel, abont one o'clock, and leaving his trunk, walked cut to see the flre, which waa then nearly a quarter of a mile oft". In a short time he returned, and found the ho tel in flame* He loat hi* trunk, with nearly all hi* cloth ing and paper*, and a considerable mm of money. One reason of the rapidity with which the flre spread, is to be found in the extraordinary dryneaa of the weather for two weeks past. We have not had a shower of rain in that time, with one trifling exception. Every particle ol wood in the hoasea of the city, waa as cry aa tinder. We regret to learn tkat Samuel Kingston, ha* been missing since the flre waa raging on Thuraday afternoon. Ha was last seen going into his burning oAce f It is leared he is lost The losses of some individual* and houaea are enor mous; ranging from $6,000 up to $900,000. Thus, one firm of wholesale grocers, the heaviest holders of sugar, molasies, kc. in tke city, and also owners ol the building in which they did businesa.cannot have loat less than from $80 to $100,090.

Wo learn from a reliable source, that the Fireman's In surance ??ce has loat $J4? 000, and will pay about forty cents on the dollar. The Klreand Navigation Company hava lost $;00 000, and will pay the whole amount.

MonDAT Moaismo, April 14 n may as well sta?o here that the stain--s_iid to be a blood stain- on the sleeve of the shirt found In Oordon * chamber, has been submitted to a chemical analy sis, the r.-sult 01 which was stated Saturday aternoonbytheAt torney General to be not unlavorable to the prMOner.j On the opening of the Court thi* mornirig, (or the prisoner, resumed and concluded hi* opening ar K^ment. He dwelt for some time on the character 01 the e vidence which had been presented b? the goyemmeut. It wad purely circumstantial, and on thi* account would require a greater degree of careful scrutiny on the pa of the jury. In making this scrutiny or examination, the jury aiu*t bear in mind certain admitted truths; the first, that each circumstance must stand alone, and depend, not upon the other circumstances, but the testimony bearing directly upon itselt; the second, that'each cir cumstance must be fully established before any infe rence can be drawn from iti the third, thnt th? circum stances must not only tend to the establishing of the fact charged, but they must positively exclude every other hypotheii* which might be presented. ,, Mr. C. then p issed to an examination ot the evidence in relation to the guilt of Jehn Gordon, the record of whoie conviction had been ottered o* prima/acta ev idence that he committed the murder. He thought that heahould be able to *how that John Gordon did not and could not have committed the murder. The Governmenthadnot offered a particle of po?itive evidence to show^at John Gordon wa* any nearer the place of murder when it wm committed, than hundred*ol other* residing in |hevici nity. He was Been going toward* hi* home Jthtlf PMt a o'clock ; he must have been at home at 3 o clock. Mr Sprague was la*t seen at half part 3 o f minutes walk ol the place ol murder. John ^H (?/he again seen at hall past 4 o'clook ; at neither time did he have a gun, or a coat resembling the ow toand swamp" It wa. for the jury to judge whether John^Gor don could have exchanged h? clothe* alter 3 o clock, ' went to the place ol murder, killed Mr. iprague, secreted the gun and coat, returned to his home, again exchanged I h is clothes, and called on the Kingston's, three quarter* I of a mile distant, at half past 4 o'clock. Mr. C next glanced at the evidence relating to the gun found in the iwamp. The chief witnes* who identified it vis having belonged to either of the Gordon s, was Abner Sprague, jr. Ho saw a gun very strongly resembling; it, i.i th? possession of John Gordon, the Friday befoire th murder was committed Ho met Gordon in the road, locked at the gun a few minutes, and tne two then separated. Mr. Haskins and his ? ? seen Gordon's gun the day before, the jr had previously had it two orthr.e week* in hu poiie - sioi.; and had examined it with the view of purchasing it, mid 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 bis clerk was only to the fict that a gun, as appear.*! by a pmcil mark in their book, was sold to *' N. Gorton" Neither of them reco^ lect or pretend to state any thing farther than tbi*. That given by the negro Francis, that he left this gun with Almy for sale, was not sufficient?ho only identified the eun from its general appearance, and from the fact that ! screw was missing from the lock, and that a 'crew, not properly a gun screw, was now in that -place. Mr. cur ry ft ere took the gun, and showed to the jury that two screws, neither ot them gun screws, were now in the lock. Mr. Curry also showed that there wa* a mark about the gun by which any person who had ouce exam ined it, could i'Jentily it. The stock was in twopieces, and one portion was much darker colored than the other. '1 was strange Francis and the other witnea*e* made no mention at this. The ramrod of the gun wa* only t. aced to Nichola* Gordon through the testimony ol Benjamin Waterman, or Ben Kit. Mr William hn"^e,'^d 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 as he did. Mr C. did notbelieve h r8p?gue had bribed Kit.but the tact followed that told ? slanderous lie to Carpenter. The jurycouldjudgo what reliance, in a case like this, should be placed upon his ?Mr. Curry next passed to the coat found in the ?*??P Oae or two witnesees think Kletd l\IS?rs IflmhosVften"thn Gordon'iTJnvo and w??r very coat: but it had been proved that Susan Field had acknowledged she had sworn to what she knew nothing about: and the witness who was colled to show that she had described Gordon'* clothes, before the clothe* were taken, admit* that she said nothing about the color of what she termed Nicholas's old coat. Beside* thi*, the two 8'one*, the very necre*t neighbor* of the prisoner, and two or three other near neighbor*, had sworn that ' they never saw him have this coat. ' The pistol, Mr. Curry said, had not b?'en identified by | any witness. Susan Field had seen a putol in Gordon s store, but no one pretended that any pistol had been seen 1 iu Gordon-* possess on directly resembling thi*. | Tho evidence in relation to the foot pnntt was tho roughly gone over by Mr. Curry, and the conflicting testimony on thi* subject completely sitled. He showed to the jury what everyone of them must have maiked from the testimony to the point, that the tracing and mea suring o( the foot-print* so near the house as had been sworn to, wa* imaginary, to say the least ol it. [v our readers, who have read the rvidenco on this point, can not help agreeing with Mr. Curry in thi* con-lu*ion J?

[Correspondence of the Herald 1 Boston, April 14,1845. Ureal Increase of Manufacturing ? New Mill Building?Old Onet Enlarging? Steam vs. Water ?Another Cantunman Arrived?Eltction t? the 9th District? Sketch of the Daily Papert of Bos ton, tfC-t fyc. There is a great rush among " our first men" in the manufacturing line about these days. One would think by the movements that Clay was Pre si.lent of Alleghania, and that a full-blooded whig Congress was to meet at the capital on the firs'. Monday of December next. The cries of ruin to the manufacturers, in case Polk was elected, are all forgotten, and the tariff seems, to all appearance, to have got a lile lease ci a thousand years. The present taritt 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 prices, 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 of our markets at their own prices, given to the American manufacturers. Encouraged by this state of affairs, which, by the way, has poured the money into the coffers ot the manufacturing companies almost without stint or measure, our capitalists are preparing to go the v. hole figure on these branches or business. Four ot the wealthy companies at Lowell are making very extensive additions to their mills, two very liirge 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 see, must involve a very large investment of cnpital, 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 best. I would mention also, en passant, that a very heavy company has been started in this city for the manufacture of cotton goods by steam across the bay at Chelsea, at the head of which is that princely merchant Robert G. Shaw, Esq. Tnis 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 several Boston shippers, and the cargo will probably be sold here at auction. This arrival is the apt occasion for another glorification on tha part of the Boston i/uid nuncs, who love to prate atiout the wonderful race of rivalry with New York that the city of notions is running. There is to be another trial to elect a member of Congress in the ninth district of this State, on Mon day, the 28ih inst. There have already been seve r;il unsuccessful trials in that district, tne 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 cratic majority in the district; but it cannot be cen tered upon Williams, and it is a piece ot folly for liim to run. He will be run down, but there la no great chance ot Hale's election, the abolition vote not 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> rhaps it will not be uninteresting io your readers, if I speak out touching the daily papers of this same c. y of notions. 01 the sixpennies, the Daily Ad' vertiser takes the lead in matters ot respectability, bat not of circulation, or actual influence.

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 me besmeared all over with bigotry. So much for rlic " resectable daily," as it is universally called here in lioston. Next comes the Morning Pent, 4 paper that goes strong for democracy, but not so much for democracies sake, as for love of the fislies. The Post is edited ostensibly by Charles O. Greene, who can write an excellent six line paragraph, while men of greater calibre do the I' auers Circulation about twenty-two hundred. Next comes the". Courier, with its old practical printer for an editor, J. T Buckingham. He w rites well, and generally with a good deal of judgment, but he is a twattler, and has not'got the confidence of either teds or locos. He tried to come the " native" business, but it was a flash in the pan The Courier circulates nearly two thou sand, and enjoys a large advertising patronage. It is u fast friend of the Hon. Daniel Webster, and "Through the furnace unshrinking, hi* iteps would purine, To shield him and guard him, or periih there toe." The Atlas, the acknowledged head of the Whig pHrty in Boston, is ihe largest paper'published in t'11s city, iand the most hasty and inconsiderate and foolish in its course; without tact or judgment; often leading the party where they are loth to fol l'--.v?yet it is conducted in many respects, as re gnrds lis various departments, with liberality and judgment. It has heretofore depended more upon donations from liberal men in its party than on its o<vn resources for support, having never proved a profitable or even paying concern. Circulation n'lout two thousand. Of evening papers, there's the Mercantile Journal, a real old maid of a paper, seven columns deep ia whiggery, moral reform, re ligion, humbug, &c , and is mainly supported by n 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 script," 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^&pretty little evening paper, and has ever been a favorite with tnmilies. It serves up a light dish suitable for a gt-nfeel tea-table. Circulation about three thou stnd copies. Next is theEvmin% Traveller, anew p per, about the size of the Transcript, ot good ap pearance, and neutral in politics. 1 havemy doubts ot its long continuance, the ground being alreadv well improved. At the head ct the penny prean. and the pioneers of them all, stand the Daily Mail, and The Timet, the best newspapers in this section of Alleghania. These two papers circulate thirteen thousand daily. Tats I learn from good authority. They may t( II larger stories for effect, but this is probably the circulation. The Timet supports the present ad ministration ; the Mail is neutral. Then there's the Bee, an excellent penny paper, published and e<lited by practical printers, neutral in politics? cir rt'latton five'to seven thousand. Last comes The Chnmidt, Jthe abolition paper, which don't circu late at all, but is supported, tor the good of the cause, by<donations. 1 had almost forgotten the American Eazle, a little " native" penny, lately surfed, with snout two thousand circulation. It is conducted with a sprinkle of spirit. So much tor Boston papers; and what 1 have told you is very n-nrly correct in all particulars. Thus we have twelve daily papers published in Boston, with an segregate circulation of 42,<100 copies per diem, wuh .i population ot 120,001).
