'IVode and iti IVimmingi?I'roiperity of the Manufacturer!?New Building!, and the advantage! of a great fire?Music and Military?Tea and Iheatricah?SaUi at the Stock Board?State of the weather. Trade with us, though much duller than it was a month ago, is better than it has been at this season for several years. The importers here are in the iinest of all possible spirits, and the blandest mood imaginable. All Kilby street, that hive of the jobbers, wears the most benevolent of smiles, and Washington street, that rendezvous of the trig "sweet" retailers, is indulging in a highly sublimated irtillaw. The ilrv goods imnnle are arrowing lat upon prosperity. They ride, they waltz, (the Polka, as taught in the Herald,) they expatiate upon the prospects of the country ! Even the retailers of pins and tape, in homcppathic doses, indulges in his cab before breadlast, and, shifting the country air, coody calculates the cost of a cottage, a carr age, and a consort. To give you some idea of this inilation, one ol our silk and ribbon men, distinguished for the rapidity with which he has grown into the reputation of a large importer, recently braved the dangers of the deep, to the great tribulation of his crura spota, and went to France. Al Lyons, whither lie proceeded to purchase silks, his opinion of his own importance, and his disregard of others, led hun into so many breaches of good taste, (although a better hearted man, perhaps, does not breathe,) that the partner of his house, resident in that city, candidly informed hint, that, if he ever came thither again, ( their connection should he immediately dissolved ? The Lawrences, (A. ?fc A , 1 mean,) having . pocketed a larger annual profit than usual?nearly ; a million, I am told, are about to alford themselves f the luxury of a new and elegant store, which they are erecting in Milk street, a lew doors below Con- . gress street. Young Edwards, formerly a sloreboy in this establishment, but more recently a part- < ner, retired, a few months ago, from the firm, it is ( said, with a fortune ol a quarter-million. He was succeeded by Lea. Lambert, formerly Lambert tc slade. Apropos of building : the destruction, yes- ' terday noon, of the Franklin school-house, in i Washington street, and several fine brick dwel- , ling-houses adjoining, in Dover street, will furnish , tenants for a lew ot the unoccupied struciures. so many of which have been erected during the last four or five months. The epidemic for public tea-parties, ot twenty- ' live cents per head, having raged with great fury J in Boston, for more than six weeks, is extending ( its infection to the country in the vicinity, to the ( great satisfaction of the benevolent proprietors of t the "China Tea Warehouses/'who, you know, a import (!) incredible quantities from the Emperor's ? own private caddy, in one quarter pound, and ' ounce parcels, tor no other object in the world than ' to oblige their retail customers. ! Yesterday, the fancy soldiery paraded, in batta- t lion order?a secuon of twenty-four or live from each company. Several of these have new and ? splendid uniforms. The Boston Light Infantry, I commonly called the " Tigers,(from an emblem * borne by the lately famous engine company, " New ' i ora, i>io. out 01 wnicn me nostou ijignt in fantry originated,) have a beautiful unilorm wilh g a handsome bear's skin grenadier's can. They will , be with you in the course of a lew weeks, and about [ the satne time, the Greys, another good corps, will i para through Gotham on their way to the monu- ? mental city. r Theatricals, like the grass, are killed by the hot 1 weather. Indeed, 1 muy say, thst to the drought at his establishment?the want of water?Cold f water?coldwatar plays, and cold watermen to act tltetn?I'elby owes the barrenness of his exchequer, j the past season. Perhaps something may be laid t it the door of the stage management, which has u been infinitely inferior to that at the Museum, ^ where Kimball has actually coined money?cleat- 1 ing $20,1100 during the season. There will be an v unsparing competition between these two houses, [ upon their re-opening. Pelby will procure a a more competent stage-manager, and a better y assorted company. Losing his late comedy- a man, Chapman, who goes to New York, he will recover from Kimoall, the old favorite < at the National, Hunt. The latter's place at die Museum will, probably, be supplied by Saunders, late of the Bowery. Pelby has the more ' elegant and commodious theatre; but Kimball's, , tar better neighborhood, and devoid of the many unsavory associations which are attached to the < other house. By the way, why do not some of our t enterprising managers introduce the jet iVeau. into the pits ot their theatres during the warmer portion f of the acting season ? If practicable, it would certainly he pleasant. , The sales at the brokers' board were dull. One share ot the Boston Exchange sold for $410. Thir- , ty-five shares of the Western Railroad went at 71i The Reading Railroad brought 23j a 25; 150 shares of the Long Island Railroad sold for 77 a 1 77*. \ i'lie day is a perfect scorcher, the thermometer } standing 95 in the shade. Nahant, Hingham, and Cohasset Rocks are seducing to their cool retreats j such ot our people as can get away. Ami. c Bridgeport. t Having recently returned trom a short visit to 1 the city of Bridgeport, gratitude for days of quiet < enjoyment I passed there, induces me to write ' these lines that others, to whom that rarely beautiful city is still an unknown countty, may go and 1 do likewise. I left in the steamer Nimrod, from , the foot of Liberty street, at six in the morning, ' and arrived in Bridgeport at half past ten. By ad- c vice of a friend, 1 went to the Stirling Hotel, a > large airy house, beautifully situated on the prin- 1 cipal street, and most admirably kept. My fellow ? traveller had been in most of the large cities of the J Union, and he assured me that in no hotel in the United States had he enjoyed so much real com- { fort as in this Stirling Hotel, of Bridgeport. The f proprietor, Mr. Fairchild, is?1 won't call him a t gentleman, for they are so confoundedly common now-a-daya?but he is a most excellent specimen i of a man, whoee politeness is not nut on as a gar- i inpnt, but a polished expression of kindly feelings, from that only source of true politeness?the heart, i There is another hotel in the place, where, it the 1 gentleman in the bar can he taken as breathing j proof, (I have never seen him move,) the larder must be excellently supplied. I The drives around Bridgeport are very fine; the j country through which you pass is no where more t beautiful; and the city itself seemed to me to be a ' magnificent garden, in which some good genius, ' Willi exquisite taste, (as a genius ought to have,) hail planted palaces here and there, at projier inter- J vals, and there?the women. There are three , things in this world that 1 have heretofore reltgi- | ously avoided?a mad dog, a dun. and a woman? t and of the three would a little rather not have met f the last. The Lord forgive them?in two shon u weeks they riddled my heart like a cullender? 1 1 was going to say a rnilitia target; but every body * knows that in what is facetiously called tnrgei " prnctice, if the bullets were not pnilantbropically , made ot cranberries, the only safe place would be , in front of the target?probably because they have * Napoleon, or General George P. Morris, or some ti of those great fellows painted on them, whom the military respect too much to hit. This recollec- * tion has completely upse* me. 1 wished to have J said something of Greenfield Hill, immortalised by President Dwight, and Samp Mortar Hock, immor- c talised by Col. Stone, and various other plnces, and as no one has immortalised them, t intend doing it * myself some other time, but now will close with ! this advice?that if you would exchange this hot 0 and sickly air lor one laden with the perfume of v flowers?if you would leave these noisy and dusty ? streets for a quiet happy valley?in short, if you r would sojourn for awhile in a city which, com- c pared with ours, is a region of the blest, go to * Bridgeport.

At the village ot * Markham, in Upper Uanaaa, the republicans of that hnm ti let lately gave an evidenco of their political feelings by I hoisting the American flag?but the Mechanics' Institute of Kingston intend to give a far more convincing proof ol h their loyalty.

Judge Parker replied, that he wus anxious to finish the tause as soon as possible, and he should, theretore, coninue the evening session for the present. Mr. De Witt seconded the motion of his associate uunsel, and moved an immediate adjournment of the Jourt for the day. Judge Littill concurred with the views of the coun. iel lor defence.

The Diitiuct Attorrry stated that lie wished to prove the arrest ol the accused by either Aldeiinan Vander vnort or Mr. < oddiugton, and he desired to introduce one of these witnesses to lorm this connecting link in the tea timony. lie therefore moved, that as it had he tin suggest- i ed by counsel for defence that the jury should vi -it '1 ? house wheretlie murder was committed, thsr tin' ' otirt .idjourn until Friday morning lor that purpose. Alter some consultation, the Court assented to this pro position, with sn understanding that the atxent witness) s for the prosecution should lie at the Court llnuse on Fuday morning fit B o'clock, or the prosecution -bould he considered as iiaving rested their case, and the defence should proceed. Utore of the Man Willi the Carpet ling, "While this was pending, the authorities at Albany succeeded in taking him, (Italy) to that City for trial, in a manner Ihut rt lUrts little credit upon their justice or cornmon tens#." We cut these Jew lines from the New York Herald to say a lew word* in reply. Firm, na to the manner in w hich the Albany authorities obtained the custody ol Italy, ol whom the extract speaks.

I?y the way, similar proceedings, thus (ar, were had in the caar of ilalfirld, who picked Mr Penniinnn's jacket here, hut the New York authorities could not afford to lone so good a stool pigon as Hatfield, and he was accordingly bailed, and we helieve is now at large,to give more viiIuhIde information when again caught. The Distro t Attorney of thin county then took out a writ < I Habeas Corpus, and on that Italy and hi* wile were brought here. The return to the Habeas Corpus by the keeper of the New Yotk city prison was, that Italy was detained by virtue of a commitment, a copy of which was sent, and which Mated that he was detained as a fugitive from justice He was brought Imp and could have been convicted on the testimony of Messrs. Sweet and Walker. He plead guilty, and was assured, we are informed, that communication should he opened with Mr. I'attisoii, and anything that Mr. !' would say he would urge in N. Y., in mitigation of sentence, should, it communicated to Mr Litchfield, he urged here,tor the same purpose Italy wan kept till Friday, the usual course here being to sentence immediately on conviction. <tn Friday, though letters hud been received from the District Attorney, and a jieisunnl communication had with his counsel, yet nothing that could urged to the court was said or done. The court adjourned on Saturday till September, and if not sentenced then, he would not have been till that lime.
