Pending the consideration of this motion, on motion of Mr Bayly the board adjourned. Common Council ?The following communications ware presented: From the Mayor, approving certain acts; from the District Attorney, in reply to a resolution adopted at the last meeting of the board in relation to the 15th and 19th sections cf the act of Congress creating a metropolitan police force for the District of Columbia; from the Surveyor, in relation to draining the alley In aquare ifcifl, and laying gutter on the north side of square 164; and from the Water Reglatrar In relation to the petition of Peter Mack A report from the waya and means committee npon too existence of certain papers aald to be In the possession of the Common Council, was tabled. The police committee reported adversely upon the petition of M. Ayers, praying the remission of a Ire, and was discharged from further consideration of the matter. The same committee, through Its chairman, (Mr. Orlnder,) reported an amendment to the bill from the upper board requiring all officers and employees of the corporation to take a special oath of allegiance, inserting la the place of the worda "shall take" the words "are hereby respectfally requested to take " Mr Shepherd thought the amendment destroyed tha nf the Kill Rv (ta mAnntlAn 19 aha ASA ??v V ??* U wuv WiU not see fit to take tbe oath, be need not. Mr Malloy desired to correct an error made by a reporter In relation to bla remarks upon tbat bill at a previous meeting. The remark* were reported as follows: "Mr M ulloy should not vote for it, and be was not afraid to say it In tbe fare of the Administration He should take no oatb couched in such language, nor should be bind himself sacredly to one Constitution when It might compromise him with respect to another. He was not agoing to legislate a halter around his neck " Th? first sentence of tbe report be admitted had been said, and he repeated It again. He did not say " be should take no oath couched In such language," but that he should vote for no bill couched in such language, enforcing and competing member* of the Council to lake such en oetb Tbe conclusion of that sentenoe never came from bis tongue Why, it was a wonder tbat he was not in irons What If his fellow-citlxens had believed it?could they not have called him a seceealonlat? He did say that he would subscribe to no oath which did not concur with the boneat sentiment* of bis heart. Tbe legislation of a halter around his neck was applied to tbe laboring cl*s* upon tbe s'reet. He was there to leffialat* for tfcem. too, and be would not impose that oath according to the present reading of the bill. It should not be ' requlrtd-' to be taken, but " requested ?' At this juncture tbe chair stated that as tbe report wsa not the authorized report of the board It perhaps wa? not best to notice ft there. He considered It irrelevsnt, but if tbe board thought it proper he (Mr. Maloy)of course must be allowed to proceed Mr Mulloy, by permission of tbe board, went ob. He woo Id go ss far as any man to protect tbe stars sod stripesupsn tbe Cspftol Hewssbound to support tbe President, though he was not bis choice. Hsd he been out of bis present position sad la tbs (Mates he would have selected soother, but as t member of that board no msn would do more to support him. But, for that bill he could not vote la Its present form- That they, loyal citizens of the United Ststes and members of a board to which they bad been elected only through the conldence of their feUow-cltlseas, that ihey should bind themselves by an lmperstlve " snail be required1' wss more than hs was willing to submit' to. He wanted tn Uke the oath, bat at the nine time he did not d<*cire to be forced Into It. He wanted the honor of taking It flraly and without compulsion He moved The adoption the amendment, upon which the vote waa aa follow*: Yeaa?Meaara. Callan, Edmooeton, Emerson, Glvea, Grinder, Hits, McGrath, Mohun, Mulloy, Turloa, and Wllaoa?11. Nay*?Meaara Bylngton, Lewis, Murtagb, JUub. Shepherd, Stevens, and tha Chair, (fir. Rleharda)?7 Mr .

Aa amendment offered to another section of tbe bllJ, striking 001 tbe word "shall," waa loet Mr Shepherd aald It aeemed tbat anme gentlemen had very leader coaacleneeaabout the matter.

Mr. Emeraon believed from the ftrat Introduction of tbe bill that It wm u teles He believed tbat tb* city bad been lifted of all ^tatea rlgbta men who were striving to deatrov the heritage left them by their fathera. Tbe bill had no effect at all. They bad no power to tarn out tboae whom tbe people bad put In. Not tbat be bad any objection to the bill. They might make the oath aa strong aa they pleased and be would aubscrtbe.to It. Mr Given stated that the bill was recommitted to a committee In order to prevent ba?ty or us?leta legislation. He had listened attentively to the debate, and It bad only confirmed blm In hia opinion inai me Dili w?* micigtinfr unnecessary. He could not conceive of tte utility or Its necessity.

The committee In their report hid only sugar coated It. Mr Shepherd renewed bis motion of postponement. There were members absent, ana be wanted a free expression of sentiment upon tbe matter Mr McOrath thought they had better settle It at once. He would vote for It as amended, but if It was to read "shall take," Ac., he would not vote for It. Tbe motion to postpone was lost. Mr. Bylngton moved to adjourn; lost. Mr Kdmonston called the prevlousquestion. The bill passed as amended, whicn now reads Instesd of "shall take, Vfcc., -are hereby respect fully requested to take." A resolution allowing Jamea Glnnity to erect a frame stairway adjoining bla brick bouse, and a bill prohibiting the use of open or exposed lights In certain building*, were passed Mr. Callan moved tbat a committer be appointed to wait upon the upper board and inform them of their readiness to go into joint aeaalon for the election of a Mayor to fill the vacancy occasioned by the reaignation of Mayor Berret. The Preaident inquired if any Information had been received tbat there waa a vacancy. Mr Callan aald the fact of Mayor Berret's resigning was evidence enough of a vacancy Mr Wilson said they had no legal evidence tbat the place was vscant.

Mr. Emeraon aald they bad-either elected no Mayor or had two, and they owed It to the city and their own dignity to meet again In joint aeaalon and elect Mr. Wallach over again, or Ninebody e!ae Tne President said Mr Wallach had been elected during the dtatblllty of Mayor Berret, aid be 1<4 ..V I# b.* i a -* ? -umu im it iuii uixivuiiy uau fTcr ceaaea. ll did not cease after taking the oath of allegiance, nor after he had signed hi* realgnatlon.

The upper board having adjourned, Mr. Callan withdrew his motion, and the board adjourned. The Bak*sy Cask thi Orphan*' Cocet, Jcdoe Pubcell.?Examination of Jot U. Bradley. Jr ?This case came up again yesterday morning Col. M Thompson appeared In court as additional counsel for petitioner Jot H. Bradley, Jr., sworn ?Knows Samuel Cha** Barney, of the United States Nary. [YVitne?s here said that before any questions were put to him he would like to state that he appeared here und^r process of court, and was not at all pleased to find himself here ] Mr. Linton.?"State Mr. Barneys general reputation " Mr. Davidge objected to the question, and the Court sustained the objection. Examination continued.?Have known Mr. Barney, though not personally acquainted with htm, since the time of his marrlaire: llaimst uy that he ever sate any drunkenness or misconduct on his part Some time after bl? (B '?) marriage, and the birth of one or more of the children, wblle he (B ) was residing on K street, (in this city,) witness was sitting up with a sick friend In a house directly ooposlte. It was In the beat of tfummer, and the weather was so warm that tbe windows bad to be kept open. It was necessary for witness, on account of the debility of his tick friend, to be awake fanning him This was In 1854 or 1956. W ltness went to hjs frledd's house about ten o'clock, and Mr. Barney's bouse i was kept open until quite late. There appeared to be some gentlemen there?tbe house was thrown Ope* and tbe windows were up. When the family went to bed tbe lower part of the house was closed Witness' attention was attracted (about half-past one or two o'clock) by voices seeming to proceed from Mr. Barney's bouse, from a room directly over the parlor. There was an altercation (witness recognised tbe voices) 1 between Mr. Barney and bis wife. Mr. Davldge ?"That 1 object to " He said the Court bad already decided that the affairs of Mr Barney and wife had nothing to do with tbe ' case ne oDjecuon was sustained. Examination continued:?While the altercation | was in progress witness he<-rd the voice of a child?which one he does not know. The noise was so loud as to distuib the neighborhood. [Witness explained, subsequently, that the noise alluded to was that of the altercation, of the blows, and of the screams of the child ] VV hlle the altercation wss going on witness heard the voice of a child saying, "Fa, give me a jink, (drink,) give me a Jink " The request was made several times. Wltneas then beard Mr. Barney's voice, In a very rough and (as witness thought) savage tone, say to the child, " Hush up!" and d? d it roundly. He (B ) swore violently at the child; witness can't pretent to give the exact language The child did hush for a while, and then the request was repeated?*' Pa, give me a jink " It repeated the request with a child's Importunity? " l*a, give me a jink," and Mr Barney again swore at It Witness then Leard a noise, ns If some one hid jumped out of bed, and immediately afterward heard violent blows, and the child screamed terribly The sream* were so violent mry in uc wnuw unire ivr until least 10 get inside and atop It It brought the neighbors to the wlDdowa around, and witness could see the nightcapped head* thruat out of the windows up and down the street. Nothing elxe Mr. Fendall asked witness a question aa to ' Mr Barney'a general character for temperance. Mr. Davidge objected, and after argument by counsel on both aidea, the Court aimtalned tbe objection. To this ruling, counsel for petitioner took ex- 1 ceptions. Cross-examination:?Witness did not go over to Mr Barney's bouae in consequence of tbe 1 noise?did not go there at all V\ ltness wished new to state that bis desire to go was becauae from tbe cumber and violence of the blowa, and the screama of the child, he thought it waa belug brutally beaten Wltneas made no complaint against Mr. Barney on account of thlat and never applied to Court to have the children takni frorft Mr. B , bec?u?e their mother was then living, and witness thought a ?ingle whipping wa? not sufficient cause for such action. The blows were very rapidly Inflicted and the child creamed all the time. Witness besid It whimpering and moaning after the whipping was oyer. Mr Davldge ?' You stated that during the al- * trrratlon between Mr and Hn II the child wqi Importunate for a drink Apart from what you have mentioned do yon know of any ground for i the whipping of the child T" i W itness ?"I do not." Mr Davldge ?" Might there not have been tome ground for whipping the child unknown to yoo ? " l Witness ?" 1 think there coald not have been < for this reason : the request was made during the altercation, and that was of such an excited character"?? Mr Davldge objected. I The Court thought the witness had best be allowed to explain himself W tineas, resuming?1' That I waa satisfied that , neither party bad paid attention to what was passing around them " Witness was not present in the room when the altercation occurred, and did | not see anybody whip the child Mr Davldge ?" Do you know of your own kBOWlfdfffl bv whom fth* rWIM ?saKt??-J '? Wtineas ?" Your qoration brings to my mind ' circumstance which occurred Juat aa the whipping erased. I heard Mr Barney1* voice my, ' 'Now, d-D yon, shut up,' or words to that effect Mr Devldge repeated his question. Wltoeas replied that It wan Impossible for him to say that he (Mr. B ) struck the blows, because witaeas did not sea them Tb? ores* examination closed here, and theconrt then adjourned to this morning at 10 o'clock to allow petitioner's counsel time for the appearance of their other witnesses Pabdonbs by tea Pbbsidbrt ?It will be reco!locked that Sergeant John H Murphy and eight privies were tried at the last term of the Criminal Court, for the murder of Cornelius Boyd last April The privates were srqulUed, but Sergeant Murphy waa convicted of taanlaughtor, ana sentenced to eight year* imprisonment la the Penitentiary nTs pardon bar lag been recommended ?the Jury which convicted him, by a majority the boor da of Aider mm and Cwsio?
