Ding, ding, ding, ding, fire, fire, fire, fire, is the order of the day here now, and of the night too, for that matter. Incendiaries are at work in Boston; the city is beset with them, and the boldness of their exploits surpasses all that we luve ever had of the kind before. Yesterday, just before the hour of the afternoon service in the churches, a carpenter's shop at the South part of the city, near the Providence and New York Railroad Depot, was set on lire by some rascal or other, and by that means some thirty or forty hotlBs, including one church, were burned. It is ?j? id that the chap has been caught. Lnstnight the bells were agoing pretty much all the time, and tires took place in various parts of the city. Several unsuccessful attempts were also made to Bet tire in stables and other places. At day-light this morning, a lire was set in Garden Court, at the west |?rt of the city, which burned several valuable .brick houses belonging to the estate of the late Governor Win throp, and quite a number of old wooden tenements occupied by negroes. The locale of this conflagra tion is in the centre of the former Five Points of Boston, Negro llill, as it is called. The neighbor hood is very much altered from what it used to be, and a large portion of the present inhabitants are highly respectable. The site is a high hill at the western part of the city; and tor pleasantness of situ ation, goodness of water, salubrity of air, A;c., it is decidedly the pleasantest jwrt of Boston. It opens to the westward on Charles River and the pleasant country beyond. The occurrence of these fires has illustrated with great force the very general want of water in many parts of our city, and so far will do good in enforc ing the necessity of adopting the water act at the town meeting on Monday next. The season here is uncommonly dry, the wells being very low, many of the cisterns exhausted, and the streetsasdry as pow der. All this is very unusual for the spring of the year with us, as we generally have a superabundance of moisture at this time of the year. Vegetation around Boston is absolutely suffering for the want of rain, and the faces of the gardens look blank. But we shall have some soon, in all probability. In the meantime our thirsty cits are clamorous for pure water, and their parched mouths are continual ly in action, advocating the necessity of adopting the water act. Some meetings were to be held in op position to the scheme during this week, but it is now thought that they will not be held, as the move ment would be most odious in the present excited state of the public mind, and might provoke personal violence upon the gettsrs up thereof. Old Money bags is a great coward, you know, and will shrink from an act when personal consequences are to be apprehended, though no promptings of conscience, or considerations of public good would produce any molifying effect. So bent are these pampered em bodiments of dollars and cents in coining money out of the drops wanted to slake the thirst of our citi zen;', that they even resort to slander to carry their objects, and absolutely assert that the numerous fires now taking place in the city, are set by the instiga tion of the friends of the water act! O, tempora, O, mores! The Boston folks are a funny set of people, any way. All of a sudden they will start up some fami liar affair that has been among them forever, and aye, unnoticed, and get up a perfect fever of excite ment upon it. That is the way they have done with temperance, anti-masonry, pure water, and last, though not least, with Mrs. Barrett, the actress. Just now she is almost deified among the theatre iioers, and at her benefit at Kimball's Museum, on Thursday evening last, the theatre was thronged to its utmost capacity, by her enthusiastic admirers, while hundreds were turned away from inability to accommodate them. The play was the Lady of Lyons, which she did well, considering the m diocre abilities of her Claude. In the portrait scene, a most beautifuj and accurate jikeness of Mrs. Bar rett was unveiled to the astonished gaze of the audi ence. This new feature was hailed with rapturous applause, and for a few moments the firm set walls of the Museum seemed to quake with the tumultu ous manifestations of approbation. Young Ball, an artist pf great merit, iminted the portrait, and the flattering reception which the work of his pencil re ceived, must have sent such a thrill to his heart, as only toiling genius can know, and that but Reldom. He is thus, by this fortunate incident, placed on the full tide of fortune, and I would say to him?Dum mvimus, vivamus ; that is, "go it, while you're young." This morning, at six o'clock, Messrs. Andrews and Boyle opened the first of their new classes in Phonography, and with good success. There were some hundred pupils present, who took hold of the new science with great avidity. This idea of morn ing classes, before breakfast, is rather a new one among our sluggish cits, though it is common at Universities in this country and in Kurope. It is a first-rate plan, for it induces early rising, and in the morning the mind is fresh and strong, and better able to grapppie with the difficulties of a new science. The celebrated John Quincy Adams is a noted instance of the benefits of morning study. I am told that he rises every morn ing before day light, and after a wholesale ab lution in cold water, studies until breakfast time.? The immense amount of lore, sacred, profane, po litical, philosophical, material and mental,with which he has thus crammed his brain, should be a stimu lus to our young men "to go and do likewise."? What fools fojks are to sit up until midnight, and then lay soaking in bed until seven or eight o'clock in the morning, thus losing the best portion of physi cal and mental existence ! Give me a morning sun, fresh breese, and clear head, rather than me lamp smoke, foul air,and turbid brain of" midnight study. There is a rumor in town that Caleb Cashing is to bo sent Minister to Mexico in place of that thick headed pork-eater, Shannon, if the latter has not cut off all communication by his bungling course.? Cushing's appointment would be a good one, for he is an able diplomatist, a sound state.-man, and a man of strong common sense. The ladies, however, would regret it. for he is a first-rate marriagable man, and they would hate to lose his society. But if ru mor is to be credited, Ohleb is not now a Celebs, for he has fixed his affections upon a sweet Harper of Maryland, whose notes have a golden tinge to add to the charms of her mental and personal accomplish ments. But, mirabile dictu, she is a Catholic, while Caleb is a straight-laeed PuriUin, and unless he for swears the laitn of "fader-land" and migrate to Ma ryland, he pannot have her. A sojourn in Mexico might facilitate the transmigration, and, doubtless, Caleb's efficiency as a diplomat in the city of Monte zuma, would be increased were he a faithful son of mother church. I hope he will get his wife and his mission. Yours, Guv Fattx. Difficulties in Lincoi * County.?The difficul ties Itelwcen the H emulators, as they are railed, and a not of obnoxionn pei aon* in Lincoln county i* becom ing a sellout affiir. The difficulty ha* now extended to a portion Of the citir.em of St. Charle*. Two of the Reg ulator* were rccnntly wounded in an attack upon tho Tnrnbulla. The two Turnhull*, who were *oriou*ly wounded in the itme affair, were removed to St. Charle* and are "aid to be racovering. A man named Callaway, one of the persona who had been ordered to leave the connty, win found on the road loading from Troy to Cap-au-Ori*, a few day* a^u, killed, with three ball* through the body.

The sheriff ha* been threatened with violence if he attempt* to execute procea* on certain persona, and If the grand jury should undertake to inve*tigate tho ?uhjeet, it i* doubtful whether the attendance of witnesses can t>e en furred. A number of the most resectable citlr en* of the county are enliated upon the aide of (he Regulator*.?

Mr. Paterson.?Wo havo no objection at our side to get a Jury as easily as wo can. Several jurors were set aside, on the ground of enter taining religious scruples as to finding a verdict of guilty in a case of murder, whure death would bo tho penalty ; and, also, on tho challenge for favor, and on the ground of formation of opinion. The following jury were then sworn Lewis Doty foreman; Kreeinan Darby, Phillip Bush, Josiah Dodge, Nathan C. My, Simeon Baker, John Duff, Stephon More house, Charles Hatfield, John L.

Livingston then walked oft the stoop, and I folio wad him ; he was stabbed in tho neck: I think Jones was the man that stabbed him; I saw tho knife glitter; ho (Ihe prisoner) misod his arm; at tho timo prisoner Jkickod him first; it ? as after twelve o'clock a considerable; he had a red shirt on, with tho sleeves tucked up; lie had on panta loons which I cannot swear was white or dark; he had no coat on; I saw no man after this, until I got to tho corner ol Orange and Orand; Livingston was a barber Cross-examined by Mr. Brady?I am about 26 years old I cant say how long I havo been rin Now York- I earn my bread to get a living; 1 now work for tho State during the last two months. ' Mr. Brady?Did you not, Sarah, live inhouse? of pro stitution for the last five years I Witness?I think that a very ungentlemaftly question to put to any folk of susceptibility. (Shouts of laughter) I'd have you to know, that colored folks havo suscepti hie feelings, well as other folk. (Renewed roars of laughter.) Mr. Paterson?What hns this to do with the case 1 A witness is not bound to mako any disclosures that mav criminate himself. Mr. Brady?That may be very true ; but it is anestab lished principle, that tho fact of a woman o< bad charac ter, being in the habit of living in and fre.iueutimr houses or ill fame, it goes a good deal to impeach her cre dibility. Cor rt?That is very true. Mr. Paterson?Do you decide so, your Honor ? Coiht?Certainly. Mr Paterson?Well, I shall send to my office for au thority to show, that the witness is not bound to answer anything to criminate herself. i'n a flu"T)?I'd have yes to know, that if I was itself; do von think that any ono would come here and swear to what was not true '?(Laughter.) Mr. Brady?Well, we shall leave this part open and proceed with the examination. Where did you eo wit ness, after you saw the man knockod down ? ' Witness?I went down to corner of Orange and Orand streets; I could distinguish the faces of the men by the light from the store; it was quite bright; I never saw Jones before that night, but his faco I am not sure of; I think Jones was in his shirt sleeves; I am not mistaken about it; 1 saw a man in the gas house, and also a watch man, after the occurrence; I was in the prison; I saw Jones at the police office; I can't swear he had on at that time a red shirt. Jambs Manga* examined byMr.PATERsoN?I worked at ?<JU,e a the ft-1 ni,,? >carH' 1 ^collect the night of tho murder; this occurrence took place about half past ono o'clock; the deceased came to the door of the gas house, with his hands leaning at each side of the doorpost: I think he said ho was stuck or struck- 1 saw something glittering about his person: I think it was the blood; he elevated both his arms, and then lell upon the floor; I put him out upon the sidewalk, and some of the watchmen came up; 1 gave a bit of cloth to stop it; the wound was inflicted on the neck. John Oaltin examinod by Mr. Paterson.?This wit ness, who is also emploved in the gas house, testified he was present with the lust witness when the deceased rushed into the gas houso; Livingston asked for a doetor and said some person stuck him; I went for Dr. Sweeny ffft t!? .

Cross-examined hy Mr. BaADT-When the deceased camo to the gas house he said distinctly tome person or persons stuck him; and not struck him. I believe this is what I swore to before the Coroner's jury. I dont think I said that he used the word "struck" instead of "stuck."' Dr. Hasbrook's written deposition, taken before the Coroner i jury, describing tho appearance of the wound upon the deceased's neck, and attributing his death to that wound, was put in and admitted. Dr. Rawsom, Coroner, examined?I held a post-mortem examination on tho body; the wound was an inch in length cut in the carotid artery. A large quantity of blood flowed from the wound. The wound appeared to have been made by a sharp instrument. The cut was deep and had penetrated ns far as the cervical vertebra Officer Cockakair examined by Mr. Paterson?I ar rested the prisoner in the North Liberties of Philadel phia in Decomber, 1844; he went under a false name, as Lewellin Mavtin; 1 saw this man and came back to New York and commumcatod with the Mayor; I was sent back again and took another officer, Mr. Beeman with me; on getting to Philadelphia, 1 got an officer of that city to accompany me; we made tho arrost, and brought him before the Mayor to his office: be said Mr. BaADY?1 object to any declarations made |by the prisoner in the presence of the Mayor, aa it was a iudi cial proceeding.

To Mr. Pater.on?Jonos was detained as a fugitive from justice; and he camo to this city with mo under ar r*? . without tho order of the Oovernor. Jones said m. r'i T ? ?bjccl decidedly to any declarations made by tho prisoner whilst in duress with the officers. Such testimony, I contend is quite illegat, and would establish a dangerons precedent; and, as to any declare ( uons made hy him until he arrived in this city. I oijrt?I must allow it, Mr. Brady. k w,""',to^r rATt",?J,-^henintheMayorVofflce 1 he said that he had anticipated mo. and that the ("anal ?treet artair had troubled him a good deal; I told him to OP talking, as I did not want to hear his slang; I then searched him and found a small bowie knife on kin per son and a pledge ticket; he gavo an order for his cloths; the ticket was for a second knife; both knives were pro duced. r Mr. Brapv?I want to know which of those knive* it is intended to put in as the ono with which this allege.) murder was committed. This is tho dramatic part of the performance. It has of late been customary to make these dramatic exhibitions of burned boards and pieces of cs-rpet, and sometimes of pieces of skulls on murder ca ?os in order to excite the sympathy of the jury. Now. 1 call upon the District Attorney to say which of theso knives it is intended to apply to the case. Theso two knives are here paraded and will servo before the eves of the jury as silent witnesses. 7 dif1 not w,nt t0 make any dramatic exhibition. fhoTtnivos were found in;his possession or on hi, person, and another that was pawneA; and, upon the common principle of law that the public prosecutor was bound to introdueo nny fact that may form part of the corpus delicti. tJtiL n?w see my way. I now object to the introduction of the knife that was pawned in Phi [fdolphia. on tho ground that there is no evidence to show that the pawned knife w as ever in the city of New V ork. 1 he introduction, therefore, of the second knife is irrelevant. . ?/'?"T.-rndoubt.dly, that must have some weight; but then, let the evidenco go for what it is worth.
