Cottt.?John tttonae. of Georgetown. charged with relisting uOWr Donaldson In lb*- discharge of his duty, was yesterday tried and convicted, and sentenced to four montlis' Imprisonment in the connty jail, and a line of SI. I-rank i*teers. Robert strong, and Alexand-r Dubant w?re placed on trial for having cheated, at the gaming house of Steers, by falae cards and other fraudulent devices, during aeverai games of cards, Mr. David C. Wallis. of Tennessee, of a draft for 1.000. The principal witness waa not to be found, though great efforts were made by the prosecution to procure his attendance. John Campbell, the first witness examined for the prosecution, testified that Robert Strong, one of the defendants was noteng&ged in the games whereby Walli* lost hi* SI ,000; ao a nolle prosequi was entered In his case, and Strong put upon the stand as a witness; but the evidence elicited from him did not tend at all to implicate steers and Dubant. Two oth?r wlbiMm J idki K. Dunawin and a barkeeper named Davis; but tbe evidence given foiled to substantiate the charge*, and tbe jury returned a verdict of not guilty 7V-rfajf?Before proceeding to business tbe 0istrict Attorney called the attention of tbe court to the publication, in ail evening paper of yesterday, of what purported to be the substance of remarks lllide by Mr. I, A ttafgle, lately convicted in thla c >urt, just previous to having been aentencedjby his honor. Holding the high respect which be did for his honor, the speaker thought proper to State in the first place, that no such speech as tbe one published waa ever made in this court; that tbe publication in nuestlon contained passages nsver mad* use of by tbat man In thfs court} while it left out other passages which were used ; that the publication waft grossly false, as representing the remarks used by Mr Bargie in bis speech, ana was the production of the most impudent J tl' Hi. * ? ? * - uiruum . ky uuu regura u> wnat iraj saia oy Mr. Bargie in his ipwi'ti which wai directed toward* himself, he treated it with the moat passionless contempt; but It was due to the Court to tate that had Margie attempted to use the intuiting language which is represented to have been made use of bv him here, the speaker would hare Immediately interposed to stop It. The speaker stated tnat he baa understood that no regular reporter of the paper which had Issued this publication was present when this speech was made, but that at the request of Bargie, or of parties interested in his case, a reporter had been sent to the cell in which be is confined and obtained it from his dictation. Judge Crawford stated that he had heard of the publication, bnt had not read It. The paper which bad made it he did not read, as it iredlll>lltlv. thf?ncfh nifdUliniMs ^ J , ^ ~ MUVM ui lium UIUCI causci, misrepresented the actions of this court. As to the speech Itself, be cared no more for it than he did for the whistling of the wind. NoteThe reporter of the Star deems it proper, In view of the above, to state that be was not in the eonrt when Mr. Bargle executed the rhetorical A* urish in question, which was published In the Star of yesterday, nor was any reporter of the Star present. After the court adjourned on that day, he accidentally met a juror who had satin the case, who informed him that Mr. Bargie bad electrified the court and the lawyers with a torrent of eloquence, and requested us to obtain a copy, if possible, for publication This juror a'ao informed our reporter that be thought if the jury could have heard this speech before they retired in the case, Bargie would not have been cooviciea a great many persons who bad heard the speech, or bad beard of It, requested us to publish it. Thinking there must be something in it, we re<]nested a friend, not a reporter for the Star, to obtain it for us This gentleman informed 11s that he had already been to the jail and obtained it from Bargie, and offered to furnish it. We accordingly published It, believing it to be the genuine speech, or as near it as U would be possible to come, under the circumstances. This is the whole of It. As to the Court, it is due to Judge Crawford, and to our reporter also, to say here, that he Is not conscious of ever having misrepresented the actiou of tbc Court?certuliily not wilfully, and be bellevs not carelessly. If there Is a gentleman connected with the Criminal Court for whom our reporter entertains a more profound respect than for its excellent and high-toned District Attorney, it is bis honor Judge Crawford. The court tken took up the case of the United Statcsagt William H. Marquise, for keeping a gambling bouse, which, according to the law of Conurese. is considered of the same nature as that of obtaining money under false pretenses. The case was pending when our report closed. Thk Tournamkit at Aklimotox Ykstkrdat. As anticipated, there was an immense gathering at Arlington yesterday, on the occasion of tbe tournament given by the President's Mounted liuard. Dancing commenced at an early hour, and was continued until 4 o'clock, when tbe great contest for the prizes came off Previous to Its commencement, however, the Hou 1 I Stevens. of Oregon, delivered a very neat address, after which tue rules of the ring were read by Maj. Emery The judges appointed were John Juhuson. Col. Emery, and Johii VVhitheld. Tbe riding was quite spirlWd, and continued somttime Mr. haskey was declared to be tbe best rider, and accordingly ulaced tbe wired scepter upon tbe fair brow of Miss Virginia Hodges, as Queen: Mr Teel rrnwnMl th? Hrtt n.?M ' * and Mr Wm Geary the second. Prior to the coronet being received by the Queen, a few appropriate remarks were made by Mr. Seitz. 1 tie dancing was kept up until a late hour. Lovk Feasts.?Two of these social meeting!, peculiar to the Methodlit denomination of Christians, have taken place recently In our city?one on Sunday afternoon at the Kast Washington Mission, Methodist Protestant, Rev W. T Dumm, pastor; the other last night, at the Ninth street Station of the same church, Rev. P. L. Wilson, pastor. The object of those meetings appears to be a frequent reunion of the members of the churches, tending to encourage and strengthen each other "as iron sharpeneth iron." The members at these meetings sing and pray and exhort each other to patience and diligence. The occasions were made peculiarly Interesting, even to non-professors, by the zeal of those who were the speakers. Several aged men and women related tneir experience In the Christian life, some of them having been in the service as much as half a r.enturv Th* Popular Pkizk Exhibitions at Odd Fellows' Hall, it will be seen by advertisenimt in another column, close up this evening with a grand exhibition for the benetltof Mr. Sanderson, the enterprising and accomplished lessee Ou this occasion, besides the beautiful and classical exhibition which the eye never tires of looking at, and the exhilarating music of Messrs.

Of course, those who have received so much pleasure and so much jewelry at the hands of Mr Sanderson, will see that he gets a bumper to-night, on the occasion of his benefit, and positively the last night of Thiodon's Museum or Art in this city.

Chksateakk axx> Ohio Caxal.?The following communication, njra the Intelligencer, has been handed to ns. written by a gentleman ol Cumberland to his friend in this city, both tielng personally well known to us. The Informatiou seems to oe of great Importance to all parties concerned, directly or indirectly, in this threat work, more especially to those parties who advanced in good faith millions for Ita completion: CCHBXKLAND, Md., July 30, Ifflo. Dtar Sir: We have to-day issued a call for a convention of all persons interested in the present condition and future prospects of the canal, to meet here on the loth of August. The notice is short, but it was necessary to anticipate the meeting of the Canal Board at Berkeley Springs on tbe13th, and of the state's agents on the 15th. Now, this call is signed by the muat respectable men of the county, and will be found in the J Intelligencer, Richmond Enquirer, and in papers i of the Maryland counties interested in the canal. It would have been signed by the whole county, h.'*d there been time to circulate It and had it open necessary. Yon know that we are again threatened with an increase of tolls, (no doubt at the instance <>1 the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company;) and, even if they are not increased, the impending threat is just as ruinous, for no new contract* will be made, nor a boat built, nor a horse bought during this feeling of Insecurity. Now, you are interested in this state of things. Your Mayors of Washington, Georgetown, and Alexandria, or some representative of their interests, ought to be here, as also Mr. Tucker. of Richmond, and also some one to represent the Government interest. S ir yourself about this thing, for it is the death throe of vast capital and many interests. consiaskes per Steamer Monticello kkom New Vom. August 6?Alexander A Cook, G K. Adams, C. fi.
