Wltneaa always found htm a kind, devoted and affectionate father, and never unkind to kls children, and tbe children affectionate toward* bim In alckneao be waa very kind to tbem, and did all a gentleman could In tb*way of nursing, and was also very anxloua about tbem The children were s great deal In hia room, because on account of bis deafness he spent much time with tbem. The children were pretty much a* other children?well clad and well-cared for? and were rerv bright for their ares Chssey In? I At tbi* point a acene occurred which we canproperly describe without a word or two of explanation. Tbe judge aits on a dais about two feet above the level of the floor of the court room. Directly In front of hi* deak, about four or Ave feet from It, ia tbe table at which tbe counsel, Ac . are seated When tbe examination of Mrs. Steele commenced. Mr. Linton seated himself In the clerk's chair, which Is between the Judge's desk and the table Thus seated, be faced the table, with bis bark towards tbe judge. Mr. Barney and bis mother (Mrs Barney) were on Mr Linton's right, and tbe witness on his left, all being within a few feet of each other. Daring the examination, Mr. Linton onceor twice objected t? Question* pat to the witness bv Mr. Davidge, and several times looked towards the witness and addressed remarks to ber. Mr Barney, soon after the examination commenced, came aroand tbe table and stood by tbe side of his sister, (the witness ) At the point where the testimony Is broken oil above, Mr Linton was looking towards tbe witness, Mr Barney suddenly advanced a pace cr two towards the judge, and addressing him, and pointing towards Mr. Linton, said, excitedly, " Will your honor remove that man? He Is saxing at the witness very Impertinently." Mr. Linton (who Is In s debilitated condition) slowly rose, and grasped his stick, (a stout black cane,) wblchrwas lsylng on the table As be did so he exclaimed. "I will knock your G?d d?d head off " As Mr Linton was about to advance, Mr Barney put his band In a aide pocket, ss if to take out a weapon, when he was Immediately surrounded by bis sister, (Mrs. Steele,) the bailiff, and one or two gentlemen, who restrained him The scene was now a very exciting one, and all in the room ross to their feet, with two or three exceptions. Tbe judge kept bis seat, and commanded his offlcer to "Arrest those men?both of them?take them into custody st once " The reporter kept bis seat, although bis bead was too nearly "In range" to make bla position s comfortable one, and be was not entirely reassured by Mr. Linton's second exclamation to the parties around Mr. Barney, "Let him go, ad?d coward, be wouldn't shoot a loose " Bv the exertions of the bailiff snd other peacemakers, quiet waa ultimately restored in a measure when Mr. Fendall rose and with much feeltug said that if such scenes were to occur, and parties were to be threatened in court, be would at once withdraw from the case Tbe Court said that the scenes which had occurred here dally could not be tolerated in a court of jnstlce, and any party violating tbe decorum of tbe court hereafter should be promptly arrested. The Judge then beckoned Mr Barney to approach. and said that be (Mr. B.) would not be allowed to bring a weapon into court. Mr Barney replied that be only carried It for elf-defence. Tbe Judge said he must surrender it. Mr Barney aald he would take it out of court. Tbe Court assented, and Mr Barney went out, followed by his counsel, Mr. Davldge. They returned in a few minutes, when tbe examination of Mrs Steele was resumed, Mr. Linton taking tbe same seat ) Witness never in her whole life saw ber brother Intoxicated ssore tbsn half a doten times, if that oftan, and never saw blm so before his marrhge. W ltness was eery certain she never saw blm Intoxicated or unduly affected by liquor In presence of bis children Witness meant by Intoxication slightly under tbe influence of drink The last time wltnee* ssw him so was about fifteen mon'hs ago, when bis mind was greatly excited by his wife leaving Pranoe and coming to this country under a fictitious name, leaving the children Mr. Linton objected to this evidence concerning Mrs Barney Tbe Court sustained tbe objection; and. by agreement of counsel, tbe words "under a fictitious name" were stricken from the record. Witne? on no other occasion saw her brother without the control of bis thinking faculties For the laat eighteen months ?he has seen a great deal of him, living in the same bouse with him, except on two occasions, when he went to France, and in that time he tai lived a more quiet life than when be lived on E street. He has spent his time home evenings, and occupied mo*t of b's time la translating a French novel. Witness' brother has necessarily taken a el ass of ale at dinner. He waa always In the habit of giving bis children religious Instructions The only additional facta elicited bv cross, examination were that Mr. Barney's wife was with him all the time on E and Twentf-flrst streets; and that witness, on tbe occasion alluded to, knew ber brother haa been drinking, because she perceived it on his breath and clothing, al> ' way* knowing be never touched stimulants; also, be almost always drank ale only, though brandy and water aad whisky and water were on bis v table ? Mrs. Mary Chan Burnty (mother of Lieut. Barney) sworn ?This witness also testified to ber Intimate aad confidential relations with her son's f?mllr? and her opportunities of knowing his habits He was foolishly devoted 'o bis children, and they were a 1 wars beautifully drrsaed Never witnessed any anklnd and anfatberly conduct to tbem, aad never saw htm raise his band against Chasev, except tbe other day, on Seventh street, wbea he(Cbasey) wns insolent. [Wltnean added, jscie ? <?, "If be had been my son I should have whipped him "J Witness never kuew a more affectionate tether than her son, snd tbe children were very fond of him Cbasey waa particularly devoted to bia mother, Neddy to his father [Mr L.inion Dere aaaresaeo a question to Mrt Harney, bnt ahe made no tniwef. He repeated It, but ahe atill remained silent. The Court said Mr Linton could question the witness on croaa-examlnatlcn ] Mr Barney, on Sunday morning, would have the Btb'e and Episcopal prayer-book, and call bla children around htm On E street hla habits were very good, and witneaa never saw him drank. There was a supper at hla bouse every night, and hot whisky punch was passed around, of which ladles partook as well aa gentlemen Never saw him when he had not control of his faculties He has been continually wi h witneaa In the last 18 inontha when he was In the city; their relationa were very intimate, and he would not bave kept up under his troubles but for her devoted attention. He passed hlseveatngs In hla own room, reading He waa perfectly aober all the time, a pint of ale at dinner being the only liquor brought into the bouse, of which witness would herself take a tumbler fnll Witness knows Alexandrine Parflatt since October or No[ veanber, 1800 First aaw her at witness's bouae 1 on Seventeenth street Witneaa attempted to talk to her la English. Mr. Devidge ?"What did ahe say?"

The Court said tbat unless tbe witness (&lexsndrtee) bad tcattfled to tbe conversation at Mrs ^moot's, ber testimony could not be impeached by Mrs Barney's account of tbat conversation.

Mrs. Julia Cahlll, who occupies the back room, same floor, went out yesterday evening, about 5 o'clock, to a store In the neighborhood. 8h? left Margaret Norris alone in the front room, sitting on the floor with her back agaist the wall. When Mra Cahlll returned about half aa hour afterwards, Thomaa Norrlawas in the room, and his wife was lying on the floor dead, or dying, with the blood runring from ter head and face.

From the order published in your paper from Col. T F.

Last night, about 7 o'clock, the police of the Fourth Ward found a soldier lying in front of the Bank of Waahington, in a very helpless condition?so helpless that the officers did not think be got there without beln^ carried.

"And be it further enacted, That the Board of Police rraj divide the said district into praoincts, not exoseoing ten. and may assign one sergeant of police to e*o* of tad precincts.

Subsequently Slough went to the stable and took these males away, and the prosecutor had not seen tbsm since. Mr. Morris, for the defence, claimed that the evidence at most proved only a breach of trust Mr Glberson, prosecuting^ Insisted that all that was necessary to prove a caae of larceny had been clearly shown. The justice was asked how be would decide, aa the affair seems to hsve occurred In Alexandria, Va.

Lookout," the intelligent Washington cor respond eat of the Baltimore Clipper, has the following to say In reference to the above question just raised by the ex-Mayor Berret clique : "As a general rule, wnen political jugglers sod tricksters pr?tend any special regard f >r the public good, the time has come when they tatend some particular stroke for their own private benell t and gratification. This 1 find to be the trus explanation of the effort to unborae Mayor Wallach and put Into his place some gentleman of bland manners and easy virtue, who may be counted on to smother an? Investigation Into corporation corruptions and municipal abuses which nave been perpetrated for years by the petty C?bbe and miniature Ployds In and about the City Hall " Mr. Wallach, as 1 understand, Is on tne trail of certain malpractices which have been allowed to grow up and become bold and strong He must, therefore, be ousted, If possible, before be discovers too much, snd this constitutes the true reason before which s pretext of trembling anxiety for the public good has been raised to ad as a screen and concealment. Purtber. If 1 am correctly Informed, the Corporation and people of Washington have never received any e knowledge of the rd?w of Mr. James G Berret from arrest; It is, so ftr, matter of mere beareav or newspaper report, so that even the debate had la the Board of Aldermen on the whole subject was deficient of any proper basis LATEST NEWS BY TELEGRAPH.
