Tub Babnbt Cass Biro** tat Obphans' i Coubt, Judob Pcbcbll ?This ease came before the Court again yesterday looming, pursuant to the order of the Court at the adjourn meat on Friday last Of the counsel for petitioner. Messrs. Linton and Thompson were absent, and Mr. Kendall only appeared. During the progress of the < ** Mr Cms. H Winder came into Court ax additional counsel for defense The cross-examination of Mn. Catkarine Old.field (sister of Lieutenant Barney) was continued. Witness's mother asked Alexandrine Parfait repeatedly whether abe knew the things shout tip be. and she( Alexandrine) said that her mother told her Witness said abe did not believe It; and Alexandrine answered, " It la true ?my mother told me." She spoke In English, and she spoke English remarkably well Mr. Davidge baring written this portion of the evidence without inserting the word " remarkably objection was made by Mr Fendall, who Insisted on counsel writing down the answers of the witness ss tbey were given. Quite a lengthy discussion ensued, during which Mr. Davldge spoke of the course of the counsel for petitioner, and ssld tbst he Intended to argue this esse at the proper time, and he would then apeak not only of these matters, but of the publicity given to thla rase, and who it was that had gone before the public and flooded this community with indecent exposures, and for what purpose Mr. Fendall denied that be bad given the case any publicity; and said that if there hsd been sny appeals made through the public press, or efforts to obtain ontside Influence, It wan by the gentleman on the other aide (Mr. Davldge), who, not satisfied With conducting the case nere, had argued it through the press. Counsel for petitioner bad not made an effort to obtain outside Influence, or appealed to the public, if it was brought before tke public through the interpoaltion of anybody, It was the gentleman on the other aide. He <Mr Fendall) did not desire to bring In this evidence; but it was brought in by tb- gentleman's (Mr Davldge's) express order; and all the appeals to the public, or to influence outside of the Court, had been made by that gentleman. Mr. Davldge s^ld that was assertion; now for the facts. Mr. Fendall was mistaken He then went on to state at length, that when the Iowa decree was offered there was an agreement of counsel that If It admitted in evidence, there should be no testimony taken, and asked, "Did 1 break that agreement? Mr. Linton came into court the next day and demanded that the evidence be taken. Your honor mast remember the parade that was made of these papers, (the specifications and vouchers.) and your honor must also remember the assault made by counsel upon Mr. Barney. Your honor said then that there bad been an agreement when the Iowa record was submitted to the court, but if the gentlemen called for proof your honor could not prevent them. Mr. Linton on that day took control of the case, and there was no active participation by Mr. Fendall " Mr Davldge proceeded to state that when Mr. Barney was called on to defend the actions of his whole life, then he (Mr. Davldge) saked the Court to compel tbe other side to specify the rbarges Mr. Fendall bad said that the publicity given to these papers, not in evidence, but ruled out, was owing to him, (Mr. Davldge.) but the facta were that Mr. Linton had declared his Intention to go on with the evidence, and all that he (Mr. Davldge) did was to protect bis client by seeking to make the other side specify the charges. Tbe proof cam; on b7 express order of the Court. When these papers were tiled In court as exhibits, nobody ever Ward of such a thing, and bis honor threw them out as soon aa he (Mr. D ) called the attention of the court to them Mr. Davldge *poke of the bundle as being "something so precious?wrapped up in parchment, and tied up with an inaia rubber string," and said they were ottered to the Court thus tied up. He enlarged on the points already made, and asked if any lawyer would stand up and say that nine out of ten of those papers were not inadmissible under the common law. Lawyers wereotflcers of the court; they owed a duty to the Court and to the public, and it was not right for a lawyer to offer any paper to the Court he knew to be Inadmissible Mr. Fendall, he said, had not offered thoee "papers, and he (Mr D ) did not believe he would nave done so, and Mr Linton would not If he had taken time to cooly and deliberately reflect. The papers were offered here In a moment of passion. That was the history of this proof, which is no proof, but thrown out of Court, except the Iowa record. Notwithstanding his Honor ruled them out, an sfternoon paper In the city of Washington published and spread them broadcast, and that was the publicity to which he (Mr. Davldge) alluded To his surprise he now round himself arraigned aa tbe party who has given publicity to certain papers?vouchers, be believed they were called in an evening paper Tbe only publicity he (Mr D ) sought was, when he saw the publication, he wrote a letter to the editor of the Star, because tbe reporter had not published with tbe papers a statement that they were ruled out. as he f Mr Davlde) read it, and a reader notlegal might nirly presume from It that tbe letters of Mrs Barney and the aflldavlts were really part and parcel of the case. He (Mr Davidge) could no longer remnin silent, but wrote a letter to Mr Wailach. He (Mr Davidge) would never have put his hand to paper, if papers which were ruled out had not been spread before the community without explanation; and many readers did believe those papers were before the Court. He (Mr. D ) for one. did not believe in the rights claimed by reporters in allowing them to report all cases which msy come before a court of justice, or in the privlieges they have or Imagine they have in relation to proceedings in such courts. With a few more remarks about the parchment wrapper and India rubber string of the specillcation and vouchers, Mr Davidge closed .. Mr. Fendall said he did not know nor think when he moved this objection to Mr D's notes of tbe testimony that it would lead to such a protracted dl?iussiou. He (Mr. F.) waa not here to defend bis associate, who was absent, nor to defend that afternoon paper. The statement was made in that paper without tbe knowledge of counsel for the petitioner, but he supposed it was tbe dnty of that reporter to state tbe evidence as it was given here He (Mr Fendall) would aasert here now, aa he asserted before, that it waa at Mr. Davldge'a Instance that those specifications were made and this evidence Introduced His (Mr. F'a) desire was to throw out this evidence and stand on the Iowa decree, but the gentleman on tbe other aide called for It. He objected to the petition because tbe charges were too general, and insisted upon having the specifications offered which were offered, and the charges In which have been sustained before tbe court. For tbe sake of the children, whose good no one had more at heart than himself, be shunned publicity, but tbe parties on the other side were responsible for It. ^ Mr Darldge said bis memory was a little better than the gentleman's, (Mr F.'a,) and after correcting some dates named by him he said that Mr Linton insisted on tbe admission of the evidence in spite of tbe agreement of counsel. Mr Fendall said that be acknowledged no such agreement This led to further discussion, during which Mr Fenddl said the gentleman (Mr. Davldge) callel for the specifications, and tbey came In as pirt of the petition, and as part of those apeclficatl >n? the vouchers came In. After fcrtber discussion, the cross examination of Mrs Old He Id was continued. Witness had seen Alexandrine before, on Seventeenth street, when she spoke principally la French, and spoke very little English Indeed Witness was then cross-examined at length as to her brother's habits anl other matters testified to by her previously, an 1 stated that on the children's arrival they were perfectly devoted to their tether?Chasev as much so as Eady. W ltness means by perfectly devoted ihat Chaaey seemed to be very affectionate to his father; said he wished to live with him, and would have no objections to a guardian, as he thought b guardian was to look after tbe money. That all the trouble in Paris was caused by Mr. Wllbor The last sentence Mr. Fendall objected to Mr D putting down, as ss it was no part of the answer to his question Mr Davldge said he bad put it In brackets, and noted that It was objected to Mr Fendall contended that such a course would not do. It was no psrt of the record, and must not be entered at all. Mr. Davldge said he wanted the record to-day to be a correct transcript ef all that occurred, and he Intended hen after to put down every word. Mr Fendall said then it ought to have been done all the time, and not commenced when all tbe evidence for the petitioner had been,given in, and just when it would suit the convenience of the gentleman on tbe other side If the gentlemen went to present that matter in tbe record, let tbem being It la, and give the counsel on the other side a chance to rebut It. Mr. Davldge said tbe point wssof such Titanic, such gigantic proportions, it was calculated to fill the mind of the beholder with swe, like the effect of the view from tbe summit of Mount Blsnc. The sentence was written down, but in the contemplation ef the law It was not there. Mr. Feadall said the point was not at all gigantic, It was a mere myth, by which the gentleman seeks to bring into the case Indirectly what he cannot bring us directly. Tbe Court thought all the effect it would have had been already produced. Mr. Fendall said be had no objection to It If it was shewed to go In aa part of tke evidence, so It could be reported. Objection sustained. Cross examination ef Mrs Oldfieldcontinued ? The first week after the arrival of the children they were with their father frequently; Chasey very much; and Eddy is still so; and the girls are with him frequently. Eddy not witn his father any ssore continuously than Chasey 1s with Mr JfeKnft # this dosed the croas-examination of this wit ness, v?hen the evidence waa read to her for cor rectlon. A few corrrctlona were made at th< instance of the witness, and several at the in atanre of Mr. Fendali to make the record corres pond with hia notea. When Mr Fendali wished one of these correc tiona made Mr. Davldge spoke of hit alow writ lng. Air. Fendali when another correction w?i to tx made, retorted that although he wrote so slow hi managed to get the evidence down correctly Mr. Davldge had put It down with his usual cor redness and rapidity. Mr Davidge said the gentleman must be care ful what strictures be made on him. Mr. Fendali said the gentleman had first reflect ed on him. Mr. Davldge said he had meant no reflectioi on Mr. Fendali, and believed h? would not mak< an intentional mis-statement, but from what h< says, It might appear that he (Mr. D ) colored the evidence by putting down things once oi twice, or leaving them out to suit his own ron venieace. There might be exceptional case when 1ft the confusion which prevailed here thi room was part of the time a bear-garden?b< might have made omissions. He was endeavor In? faithfully to do bis duty. Mr. Fendali said the gentleman fMr D ) said he did not put down What did not take place He (Mr. Fendali) put down what did take place Mr. Davldge said he would not be subjected t< any lnuendoes. After further discussion it was decided to pu In the expression which Mr. Fendali had noted Another discussion then ensued as to whether 1 should be written "1 have seen my brother a llttl< tipsy as other gentlemen," as the witness had be fore testified, or whether It should be writtei without the word "little," as Mr. Fendali had I put down when the witness stated it the seconc time At the request of witness It was written "i little tipsy." After the reading was concluded, Mr Davldgi offered as part of the record an '-exemplification' from the Clerk of the Supreme Court in Iowa being a transcript and papers of the proceeding! on an appeal from the Jasper county Dlstric Court on the decree of divorce to the Supremi Court of that State. The case was argued at considerable length when the fact was elicited that the proceeding! for appeal was commenced after Mrs. Barney'i death 1 Without reaching any conclusion In this cas< the court adjourned. Ma. Barney bkfork Justice Johnson?Yes terday at 5 o'clock p. m., Mr. 8. C Barney ap peared before Justice Johnson to answer to t charge of assaulting and beating his son, S C Barney, jr , better known as "Chasey" Th< ease will be better understood by the following explanation as to the issue of the warrant and ruling of the case The complainant first applied to Justice Johnson for a warrant, but the Justict assuming that the parent had a right to correc his child refused to Issue. The complainant ther went to Justice Glberssn, who heard his state ment and issued the warrant. Some conversatioi afterwards ensued, and one of the friends of Mr Barney thought the Justice prejudiced In th< matter, and the Justice thereupon agreed to th? ruling of the case before another magistrate, and It wns ruled before Justice Johnson Mr Giber on appeared for the complainant and Mr. Da vidge for the defence. Mr. Otberson moved that the Justice transfei the case for trial to some other magistrate, as h< had partially prejudged the case, and had ex pressed himself In very warm terms upon the con duct of the complainant Mr Davldge objected to the motion, and suggested that the defendant had a right to select and not the prosecution, quoting the language of the warrant requiring the prisoner to be brought b? fore the magistrate who Issued it " or some othei justice of the peace " Mr Giberson denied that there is any law to tx found giving such a prerogative to the arrested party. The warrant makes it discretionary witt the constable to take his prisoner before the sub scribing justice or some other more convenient He hardly thought the Justice would object to the motion under such circumstances Mr. Davidge thought that the Justice was able to give the case an impartial hearing. Justice Johnaon said he had not prejudged the case, as he had not as vet heard the evidence, and considered himself uncommitted to either part} concerned. Mr. Giberson said It was with the Justice t< try the case if he chose; but he wished It distinctly understood by the public that he proJustice Johnson?"I shall proceed to try the case with the defendant's consent." Mr. Giberson ?"Go on then, I protest " S. C Barnty, jr. sworn?Said that his fathei attacked him twice, both times In the street. The first time about three or four week ago on F street; the second, last Monday on E street. The flrst time slapped wltnnt on the face; tb< second time he wrung bis ears as hard aa he could, and slapped him afterwards. Justice Johnson.? Didn't he ask you to dc something for him? Chaaey.?He asked me to do some writing, and as i thought it bad something to do with his case (the case Oefore the OrphanspCourt.?Hep J 1 told him I would ask Mr Phillips. Mr. Giberson ?" Whose custody are you In Chasey.?"! am in the custody of Mr Phillips ': In reply to questions of Mr. Davldge and the Justice, Chasey said that the slap was a bard slap; but It didn't draw blood or leave mark*; but his father wrung his ears as bard as he could He felt ashamed that his father should treat him so, and call him names such as "a puppy" in the street. The incident attracted persons around Mrs. M Brontiugh sworn ?Mated that a week or two ago she heard a noise at her front door and went to see what it was She saw Mr Barney have Cha*ey by the ear She asked Chasey what was the matter, snd he told her his father had asked him to do sume writing, and he had refused, and for this he struck him Mr. Barney appeared to be angry, and witness told him to gc awav from her h juse, and she went In and locked the door. The children?Chasey and his sisterboard with the witness at present J. M Edwards (an intelligent boy of about thirteen, apparently,) sworn ?Testified that h< Was at the carriage step when Mr Barney came along and said to Chasey, "Chasey, I want you tc do that writing " Chasey said he couldn't. Mr Barney then Said be must; and Chasey replied "I won't." Mr. Barney took hold of his ears and Chasey got away and went toward Mr. Phil llps's house. When he ;ame back Mr Barnei took hold of bira again. Mr. Barney said he would get a cowhide and whip him well. Mr. Dt Kraft sworn ?Testltied that the children of the late Mrs. Barney are in tbe custody ol the Orphans' Court, and as agent of the court lc the custody of the Marshal of the District o] Columbia. Mr. Davidge proposed to submit the case. Mr. Giberson said he would make a few re marks, and was proceeding to argue that Mr Barney had no authority to correct or chastise tht boy under existing circumstances, when he wai interrupted by a remark of Mr Barney in a low tone, wbich we did not hear, and which wai checked by his counsel. Mr. Gi Oerson ?"I don't want to come In con tact wltb you, Mr Bsrnev. You won't trifle wit! me as with others, old man as 1 am." Mr. Giberson Intimated tbat tbe course of Mr B. in tbe Orphans' Court would uot be tolerated by him here He urged thai the position of the child in this case wss not of an ordinary character The child is not under the defendant's control and has certainly a right to crave surety of peace Mr. Davidge admitted tbat a controversy wai progressing in the Orphans' Court; but be had never heard that Mr Barney Was not tbe father o: Chasey. He urged tbe right of the parent to cor rect and chastise bis son for any offense; the onl] exception Is in cases of merciless treatment, whici has not been shown here. Mr. Giberson, in reply, contended that this wai no ordinary case of parent and child, and hoped that, although the justice had partially p ejudged the case, he would bear this in mind before h< rendered judgment, and also the fact tbat th< complainaut claims the surety of peace. Justice Johnson said that, in order to consul authorities, as the case was a novel one to him, h< would reserve his Judgment till this morning a ten o'clock This morning, Justic* Johnson announced hli decision, tbat In view of the facts tbat the ques tlon of guardianship of the children of Mr. Bar ney, as well as tbe effect of tbe Iowa decree, are still pending in tbe Orphans' Court, and no ordei of the Court dissolves the relation of parent and child, the case is dismissed Charge or Foxcikg a ?Yester day morning, Anthony lbms and Jno B.

He wasdetained three hours, although he had other business ol Importance to attend to for the officers of tbe regiment, which suffered by tbe detention, and finally be bad to sign a note for the amount ai charged, which amount he says Is more than be owes.
