Mr. Fendall objected, aa the Court had decided that the affhlra of Mr. and Mra B. had nothing to do with the guardianahlpof the children now. Mr. Davldge argued that he waa entitled to ahow that the nuabaud and wife lired noinnnii* together, ts aome palliation for hla (Mr if 'a) conduct, and to ahow that when not aubjected to aoch lnducementa he lived a aober and temperate life.

Mr. Davldgesaya: ' The publication which appear* la your paper this a/ternoon, and which purports to be a correct report of the proceedings la the Barney rase. Is so well calculated to mislead the public, that I cannot allow it to pan unnoticed." Of course, after auch a commencement, we eipeet him to state %cky the aald publication only "parpo'ta" to be a "correct report," and wAy It la "calculated to mlalead the public " Ha does no dch thing, but undertakes to argue tbe merits of the caaa. He aavs "Mr. Barnt'v Is at common Inw the puardlan of hla ehlldran " Whn duniMl it* That "the controversy la not of bla (Mr. B.'aj seeking " Who aaid It waa? That "He (Mr. R ) la not asking letter* of guardlanablp, but defending bla children agalnat tbe officious Interference of strangers " Did the Star's report contain anything to the contrary * And ao we might go on and anawereach aentence in two long paragraphs, which conatltute the main portion of Mr. D.'s communication. He then aava: " The publication of theae ' vouchers' may admlnlater to a morbid and prnrlent appetite for scandal, but can anawer no good purpose Tbe life, property and reputation of every man depend upon a regard for tbe eatabllabed rulea of evidence. But especially In a case like thla, where tbe chargea brought against the father, even If refuted, mnat darken the llvei of bla Innocent children, It waa to be supposed that you would at leaat confine your report to the evidence In the case, namely: the contentaof the Iowa record and At A At a A* ?* - * iuf u-siimony 01 iae wunni Alexandrine." Why w?? It to be supposed so ? The conductor of a newspaper la generally preaumed to be the aole Judge of what la proper to be published In hta paper These specllcatlona Mr. Davldge admits are filed, and thev are therefore aa much a part of the caae as the Indictment would be In a criminal case. Nobody pretends to say that they prove the charges to be true, any more than an Indictment before a court prove* criminality; but how could a criminal trial be reported without reference to the Indictment? No intelligible report of this caae could be made without referring to the specifications. Mr. Davidge knows, If he haa rem<I them, that they contain worse mattera than any reported in the Sthr, and that thev refer to certain vouchers numbered 1, 9 and 3. How a legal paner can refer to certain other papers, if thoae otter papers have no (legal) existence may be perfectly plain to a legal mind, but Is aot so plain to the limited capacity of a reporter. Suppose, for one moment, Mr. D's suggestion of pub nsning only trie lows decree and tbe evident e of Alexandrine bad been carried out, the Star't reader* would have known about as much of tbe queatlona Involved aa If au many word* taken at random from a dictionary bad been printed. Mr. Davldge proceed*? 441 might well complain of tbe general tone of Tour report of tbla trial and the spirit of prejudice which pervade* It, aa well as the blunder* Into which your reporter baa fallen " The Reporter has learned enough law from Mr. Divldge during the progress of the case to be aware that It la not proper to arraign any one oil general sweeping charge* Why does Mr. D. not abow the prejudice and point out tbe blunder*. Instead of arguing those features of the ca*e which have certainly not been ventilated in Court since the reporter haa been there. Lieut Barney sent tbe reporter a scrap of paper, on which was written (referring to Tuesday's proceedings,) 44 Your report was correct with one exception. I am full Lieut since 1857. See Atty Genls report " Unpr-judlced persons present. lu Court, have spoken of tbe general correctness of tbe report of the next day's proceedings. It was not perfect, no human production Is. and th#? r#?nnrt^r la ? errors, inch as printing " 10 o'clock" fur o'clock," "served" for "sewed," Ac., which would not have occurred If he had seen the "proof." The Reporter can certainly plead not guilty on the charge of prejudice, aa until laat iaat week he knew nothing of the caae, and waa personally acquainted with none of the partiea concerned, neither Lieut Barney nor Mr De Krafft, nor the coanael on either aide. With due deference to Mr Davldge, la It preaumptton in the Reporter to suggest that be (Mr. D.) may be juat enough prejudiced aa Mr. Barney's counsel to think of a atrictly Impartial report thai It leans a little too much to t'other aide. Mr Davidge conclude* : " But I forbear to aay more than that the alleged auppreaalon of obacenity baa given color to a charge of which I have yet to aee anv jot or title of proof " Why ahonld he speak of "the alleged auppreaalon of obarenity" when he knows that that portion of the evidence which waa omitted waa not of a character fit for publication; and If the auppreaalon "baa given color to a charge of which I f Mr. D ) have yet to aee any jot or tittle of proof," no one regreta it more than the SMr'j reporter. lie (the reporter) ear neatly hopes for the sake of Lieut. Barney, for the *ake of bis "Innocent (Interesting and Intelligent little) children." and for the credit of human nature, that the "charge" alluded to will not be auatalned.

The sweet singing of "Erin Is my home," by the Mltses Baduet, awoke many slumbering reminlscencss, and made many a heart aijrh In the remembrance of brighter and happier aaya; and tbe soJo and chorus " Come !
