Tub Baas*? Casb aaroaa thi Osfhass' Coonr, J cms Pcbcxll ?At the opening of the Court on Saturday. Mr. Davldge stated that an error had been made In copying the testimony of Alexandrine Farfalt, and that according to the original record, which he now brought Into Court, that Witness had testified to a conversation with Mm. Barney (the mother) ' two months K?." and not " two week# "go," as in the copy. i be examination of Mrs Mary Barney (mother of Lieut Barney) was then continued. W Itnna had a conversation about two montba ago with Alexandrine Parfait about the alleged liberties of Mr. Barrev with little Hebe That conversation waa partly in French and partly in English? commenced In French, and when Mra Oldfieid entered the room was continued in English, that ate (Mra O ) might understand It. Alexandrine made some statementa In that con venation siml. lar to thoae she has test 1 fled to in court, In regard to the tndecent liberties with Chase and Hebe. W ttnese was very much shocked at auch diacloaurea, and asked Alexandrine, "Old yon aee these things?"' She answered that her mother hud told ber. and then repeated It twice, and aald her mother "tell the truth," and she would go Into court and swear it, becauae her mother " tell the trulh." The question was asked her once or twice. In English and French, that ahe should fully understand the matter, and there ahould be no mistake; and she gave the aame answer The aubject waa particularly discussed In all its detalla, and was the main subject of conversation for more tban an hour. Alexandrine made some allnalon to getting ber money to go back to France. Mr Davldge aaked the witness a question, to which Mr Fendall objected aa being a leading question. Witness asked what was a leading question. Mr Fendall explained Witness said If she had latitude she could tell the most horrible things, bat did not want to blush before this audience. The conversation alluded to nbove took place in Mra Rogers drawIng-room. on Fourth street, on the 4th day of July last Witness entered It In her diary. Croaa-exnmined?During the whole time witness' son lived on F. street, his wife lived with him, and had charge of the children, of course. The time witness aaw her son intoxicated, on Twenty-first street, he waa not excited, but exbllIra ted?ao much ao they were quite amneed. Wlt? nesa at ao other time saw her son under the effects of liquor Before he went to Parie ha had his friends at his house carousing almost every night, and Mr. Linton enjoyed It more tban any one else wltnesa aaw there. There were always ladies prevent on thes? occasions, and wltnesa' son certainly did not drink to excess. Witness never bad occasion to write or apeak of ber son1* bad treatment of bia children. Mr Fendall handed a letter to witness, and aaked if that waa ber handwriting Mr. Davldge took the letter from the witness and commenced reading it before she bad answered. Witness said if it was her letter ahe hoped they would bring not one but all her letters to France into court Mr. Fendall said the connsel (Mr. Davldge) had no right to take the letter until the witness had examined it and answered bis question Mr Fendall asked the witness If she ever wrote to ber son about hi* dissipation. Witness refused to answer any question until abe bad seen that letter Mr Fendnil aaked if that was her hand writing (showing the letter ) Witness asked Mr Davldge If she must answer. Mr Davldge objected to Mr Fendall's question. Mr. Fendall asked the witnesa if she wrote a letter on July 14, 1859, to her son's wife W*stnets didn't recollect, but had it noted In her diary if she bad done ao. Mr. Davldge withdrew his objection, and the letter was handed to the witness, who aa so?n as abe had examined it, said she was proud to acknowledge tbat she wrote it. and asked Mr. Fendall how it came into bis poa?eaalon Mr. Fendall said he did not know that he had a right to answer the question. ? Witness said It must have been abstracted from Mra. Barney's (b?r daughter-in-law's) papers, and said sbe wanted all her letters bronght in. Tke letter was then read to the Court as follows: Bbooxlys. n. y., August ltth, 1-59 My dear Mary: Why have 1 delayed so long a time to snswer your letter of the 25th J une, is tbe question I put to myself very often. The truth is, my heart ts sadly grieved at its contents. I wrote to Ckase. making no allusion to what you communicated, but gave him advice tbat 1 hoped would be beneficial, and In an indirect way 1 counseled him in regard to you I was afraid of betraying your confidence, and 1 could not express all mv feelings; but to you, dear Mary, 1 will naburden my too sorrowful and afil.cted heart. 1 am deeply grieved when you tell me Chase fails in kind feelings and sympathy towards you. I know he loves you, but 1 can't excuse his cooduct. 1 shall ever be your friend, and your cause shall always be defended by me I shall write to my dear boy again, and do all In my power to bring him to a better state of mind. How ungrateful he proves for his success, and throws a pearl away richer tban all bis tribe. 1 shall be cautious aa regards all you write me; but let me hear from you, and conceal nothing tbat occur) in which 1 can take a part in your behalf I will do all in my power; and put your trust in your Heavenly Father to bring you out of all your trials, and He will never forsake you, nor your dear little children How I sbonld delight to see you all again, bat this hope is denied me if it depends upon my visiting you in Paris. 1 thsnk you for your kind invitation, but many obstacles oblige me to decline the gratification of my wishes If anything could induce me it would be the hope of seeing you In the enjoyment of a k happy home and a kuit,and'i kind affection 1 1 am truly thankful to Judge Mason for tbe Interest be takes In your welfare; he has my warmest gratitude, and if be will only talk to Chase aad warn him from the danger that surrounds him, the degradation that must await him if he does not turn from his evil course, and that be mast, now be is restored to his former position honorably, support the character of a gentleman and aa officer, which be will surely forfeit If be foil to support the character of busband and father. You write me, tbat 1 may be enabled to meet tbe aubject and give tbe advice tbat must be ?;lvea him, and be shall never suspect yon, or tbst be xnformaiton comes from you 1 must, 1 will do all in my power, and my daily prsyers shall be for his smendment. 1 enclose this to the Judge, to deliver to you In private, and 1 wilt write a business letter to Chase at tbe same time Yours affectionstely, M B Another letter from Mra Barney (tbe mother) to Mrs Barney (the wife) was also read in court, aa follows: Hspt 29th, 1659 My dear Mary : Yours Just received. 1 sm in truth overwhelmed In grief I will write s letter t? Cbsse which 1 hope will bring him home 1 Will write him again; and all you commuulcate to ate a ball be withheld from him until I bear from you, aa 1 will never betray your confidence. If I can accomplish any good I will do my utmost. and I want yt.n to inform me how it is received by him. 1 want your permission to write him about bf? present mode of life, not for one moment implicating you, but thst t heard it from a friend of mine?you suggest snythlng 1 can do for you 1 wish you were with me-, but when you return to ns you must come to me. and 1 will be your frioud snd protector. I will do everything In my power to reform him. I did not see your names at Miss Msson's wedding, we-e you there ? 1 wrote to Chase asking him That circumstance made me uneasy, for siece year letter of the 21st of Juno, 1 have been anticipating had news How does be spend bis money ? If be dissipates ao freely he will get la debt, and ths next thing be will find himself In Clleky Whst a miserable prospect; sod he wished us to eigne and witness such scenes He ' has not written for his pay for August, which was due the 1st, which surprises me, as he was so anxious to receive it. Let me know who his associates are, and If this English woman ts of good character, and If be drinks to excess I commend yoa and the dear children to the csre and protection of Providence; put your trust In Him, and be will be ynnr Fstber Your affectionate mother, Mitr Babmby Mrs S C B*b.iby, Paris, France. Mr. Davldge objected to either of the letters being offered in evidence. Objection sustained Mr Fendall now embodied in his question sn extract from the first letter, and asked ths witness If she wrote that Witness said it was written In answer to the representations made in Mary's (her son's wife's) letter to her, (the witness,) and that she beard* from no ooeelse of any misconduct on ber son's part Mr Feadsll aaked the witness if sbe wrote to her daaghter-in-law In tbe second letter that she (witness) had been aa tic i pet lug bad news of ber sea Witness aald yes, on tbe same aources of information. Mr Fendsll rsad an extract about ber fears of her sea getting Into CUchy, (the debtor's prlsou In Paris,) snd ssked witness if sbe wrote tbat ^Wlta-ss aaawered "I dtd " Witness saw AlIexandrlne In October; she came to aee witness, w ita ess dwa't recollect if she (witness) sent for Alexandrine, bat Is nnder the impression thst was the cass That conversation related to tbe chargss la connection with little Hebe, hot did not go Into particulars; witness tried to drsw Alexandrine out; witness didn't sak her aoout the chargsa pariUalsrly; witness was not very aaxiooa as she always knew they were fhlse, never supposed such a thing; was ceri.lniy net 1m preened with the truth of the charges They were ao faiae witnrsa thought ttoue but s corrupt girl of such n class could originate them 8u? h thtnf could only emanate U*m tfcs corrupt J?mtn of a girl brought up In Pirir Wit new had Dot fort&rd an opinion about Alexandrine befbre ibe saw her. but always understood what that clan wu In Paris. Even the higher circles were corrupt; what coo Id be expected of auch a cisas as she belonged tot Witness did not know at that time Alexandrine had MIBed to such charges, but heard the rumor from other sources Mr. De Krafft and Mr Wilson were the first gentlemen to hlntattbem to witness; of course no gentleman would mention auch charges Witness wanted Mr De Kratn to tell her what they w-rn. He refused, but said the time would come when he would show them That was the time witness got a hint Witness was very snxlous to hear the truth of those terrible things spreading around the town. Witness saw Mr. De KralTt about it before she saw Alexandrine, and heard these charges before h?r son's wife died The conversation at Mrs. Rogers' was at the instance of witness When Mrs. Barney (the wife) came ffom France about the naval court, to rebut the testimony of Mr. De Krnfit against her husband, she told witness of this servsnt girl; that she was very impudent, but be kept her bees use she was so useful, made her bonnets, fcc , and that her object In coming was to rebut the testimony of Mr. De Krafft before the naval court She came here that time to use her influence to get her husband restored to the navy. Witness learned to speak French quite young. When she wss thirteen, fourteen, and fifteen, lived In a French house, and her husband spoke French Witness conversed in French with the Bonaparte??when Jerome was In this country and married Betty Pstterson, who was a schoolmate and class-mate of witness'. The cross-examination was now over, and Mr. Davldge wished to re-examine her, but the examination having continued until half past two, and the witness being seventy-six years old, be moved an adjournment until Monday. The Court stated that the Board of Aldermen had notified It they wanted the chamber on Monday at an early hour, and the adjournment had better be until Tuesday. The Court then Inquired of the witness as to the chastisement she stated had been on one occasion administered to Chasey by bis father Witness said It was very recently.
