Tit Baarar Ciii aavoms ni Otrus'i Corar, Jvoet P**c*i.l ?At tbe meeting of the Court yeaterd?y Mr. Pend*ll only, of couaeel for the petit!ooer (Mr. De Kraft) was present, and Mr. C H. Winder and Mr. Ingle for the respondent. Lieut Barney. Tbe respondent offered to show that tbe domestic relations of blmsslf and his wife, now deceased, were unhappy in the extreme daring their residence in Paris, and that said unhappy relations were the natural consequence of circumstances and rumors which came to respondent's knowledge, and which affected the honor of his said wife That In particular her name was sssociated with that of John B Wllbor (at that time attached to the U. 8 embassy at Paris, but subsequently diamtieed upon tbe complaint of this respondent,) In such a manner as was calesriated to drive to desperation any roan of ordinary self-control, Ac . Ac. _ . . Mr. Barney's counsel said that the respondent wished to off-r this matter Id evidence as accounting for his alleged bad conduct In Paris, as his conduct In Washington, both before and after his residence In Paris. W been In evidence here. Mr Pendall said the Court having already at the instance of the contestant (Mr Bsrney) prohibited the petitioner (Mr. DeKrafft) Bom giving any evidence to ahow Mr Barney's hi rib treatment of his wife, the petitioner now objects to say evidence being given to explain the reasons for tbst treatment, however alanderous snd unfounded be may believe the pretended explanations to be We were ready at the o'it*et of tbe case (Mr Fendall continued) to go Into it and allow tbe counsel on the other side to rebut, but tbe Court ruled It out; and now, when tbe case Is almost closed, the gentlemen want to bring It in. This was another appeal to outside Influence The point w*t argued at some length by Mr. Winder and Mr Ingle for tbe respondent, and Mr. Pendall for the petitioner. In the course of Mr. Ingle1* argument, be spoke of the interference of strangers to disturb the natural relation of fhtber and children; to which Mr. Fendall replied that throughout the progress of this c^se, tbe counsel for tbe contestant had always taken occasion to at*aefc everybody connected with It on the othor s'.de. Who sre the strangers here ? Mr De Krafft was the nearest relation of Mr Barney's deccahed wife, snd bad. a* he ought to have done, asked to have her children placed in proper "hands Mr. Winder said that Mr De Krafft was not the nearest relation of Mrs Barney, deceaaed Mr Fendall asked who was, then Mr. Winder said Mrs Rotbwell was. Mr. Fendall said If she was. and did not choose to Interfere in the matter, was that a reason why Mr De Krsfft should not, and that he should be attacked for doing his duty He (Mr. Fendall) waa willing, however, to withdraw all objection, If the gentlpmon on the other side would allow him to Introduce the letters of Mrs Barney, deceased, to her cousin, (Mr. Da Krafft,) on the same subject. Mr Iagle repeated, that his object was to show that tho cause which once existed to make Mr. Barney dissipated?If he was dissipated ? no logger exists. The Court said that, having ruled out the evidence In relation to maltreatment of Mrs. Barney by her husband, evidence to show tbe cause of such maltreatment was also inadmissible. The evidence was therefore ruled out [The documentary evidence thus ruled out includes not only letters from Mrs Barney to Mr. B'a mother and sister, but also the affidavit of tbe late Minister Mason, asserting the steady and temperate life of Mr B in France, and his labors as his clerk; also, the review by Judge Bleck, late U 9 Attorney General, of the testimony before the retiring board of tbe navy, and the Impropriety of Mr. B. having been dropped therefrom; also correspondence, in which Mr Barney challenges Wllbor for dishonoring and disturbing the peace of bis fsmily. Tbe letters of Mrs Barney run through tbe period of residence in Paris, and indicate a ery happy tone, speaks generally well of her husband, their plesssnt condition, hopeful economies, etc , snd also expresses gratitude at being beyond the scene of former pecuniary and other troubles in tbls city, &c In one of tbe letters to Mrs. WoodvlHe, her sister In-law, Mrs II., | alluding to the restoration of her husband to tbe navy, speaks of parties concerned against Mr B la toe present suit, and some of whom testified against him before the retiring board, as follows: * 1 cannot tell you bow much pride snd quiet gratification we enjoy to think of the triumph gained In this whole affair I really besln to think we are wicked enough to exult moreln the annoyance caused by some of our amiable friends at home than we are rejoiced at the advantage we peraonslly derive from tbe victory I have had aflourtsbing card plate order, d * * I had thought It advisable to enclose one of these cards to Woodbull, Linton, De Krafft, Ac , but to spue them further agony we have determined not to eJkisMjr notify tbem that Samuel Chase Barney really belongs to tbe navy of tbe United States "] Mr. Ingle said tbat be was satisfied with tbe evidence they hsd already Mr. Fendall replied that he was glad to hear the gentleman waa satisfied with what he had. but aorry to see him want to bring In other evidence if be was satisfied He(Mr. Fendsll) now offered to let tbelr letters go on tbe record as they desired If tbey would let The letters in possession of the petitioner also gs In Mr ingle asked tbe Court If It had decided on the admissibility of tbe record to show tbe pendency of an appeal from tbe Iowa decree Tbe Court overruled the objections of Mr Fendall to tbat document, and It waa admitted In tbe record Mr Ingle announced the evidence closed on the part of the respondent Mr Fendall renewed his offer to have the letters go la, (as stated above ) Mr Ingle said the case was closed. Mr Fendsll said he had made tbe offer before It was closed, and he waa to understand, then, that tbe gentleman declines. Mr. Fendall aald he had asked for tbe production of the letters from Lieut Barney'a wife to hia mother, < which had prompted the writing of tbe letters frem Mr. B ^ mother to bis wife, which were read In court a areek or two since ) Mr Ingle said he had no doubt Mr. Davidge would produce tbem Mr Pendall aald he proposed to recall Chasey, to show tbat ao Improper Influence had been used to^groduce aaychange in his feelings towards his Mr. Ingle objected. Objection sustained Chat* Barney (Chasey) was recalled and examined by the Court and cross-examined by counsel. He testified tbat on tbe first occasion be was chssttsed by bis father, he had aeked permission of Mr Phillips to go to aee Mr. De Krafft? not having been tbere for three or four daya?and was on bis wsy tbere when, at the corner of Eleventh and 6 streets, his father met him and 'old him to come back, he shouldn't go to De Krafft'*. asd repeated It once or twice. Tbla happened about a month ago, after he fCbaaey) had given bis evidence In court He told his father he bad Mr Phllllpa' permission to go. Witness then went back with his father to Mr P's to tell him about It While they were going, witness' fstber spoke very loud, so loud everybody on the atreet heard him, snd witness was ashamed of him He called witness a little puppy.

Hia father asked Eddy to tell his grandmother to come dawn, and a be came down Witness'* father struck him oaoe on the ear with the open hasd Mr. Iagle asked if tbe blow waa a severe one. Mr. Peodall objected. Mr. Iagle contended be had a right to ask tbe qauatloa, and said be had had enough of tbeao interruptions?be would stand it no longer. (T< Chasey ) -'Did your father slsp you severely?" Witness ?"A slap Is never severe " . Mr. Iagle.?'"Then 1 understand it was abt^ WUsees ? 'No, sir, it wsa not sevsrs " A short discussion ensued, in which all ths counsel had something to esy, sad during which Mr Bsrnsy rose snd said tbat If tbe Court would allow him, be would make an explanation of the wbole thing. The Court said Mr Bsrney must be heard through his counsel If gentlemen were not so excitable they would get slong better This must come to an end; these scenes would no longer bs tolerated, and the caae must be proceeded with Mr Wlader, (to witaess ) " So yen don't recollect what your father whipped you sbeut ?" Witness thought it might oe because he didat want to go with bis father. I Witness sdded. " They want to catch me " Ir Winder.?44 Yes, snd take care we don't trip yos yet."J Witness' father ceased of his owa accord after sfriklag e*e blow.

Sergeant Hurley and officers Calhoun, Calvert, Garrett, and others of the police, deserve much credit for the vigilance they have displayed In gathering the ffcets of this caae. a Complicated Cask ?Yesterday afternoon something of a scene occurred at the office of Justice Donn. The statements before the magistrates showed that Stephen Luigo bad rented a place near Tennallytown from C. H. Payne, and allowed himself to fall In arrears to near ?320 Tbe place has been injured by the troops, and the landlord and tenant have each a claim against the Government for damage Mr. Payne learning that Luigo had quit cultivating the place, and had opened a drinking rendezvous for soldiers, determined to make a distrain for his rent *b.l'e ^ere was enough to satisfy the demand, and for this purpose employed officers Roes and . daya since they proceeded to exe?,wrU' and Wr Payne went with them. When Mr. Payne approached the house Luigo came out and ordered him off. and ehoved or struck him. Payne Immediately knocked him down; but the officers separated them. The offl cere went and perfected the execution, and among other property aelzed upon a horse in the stable. Luigo tried to get the horse, and in this he was prevented by Rom, when another scuffle ensued, in which Payne again knocked Luigo down Luigo had warranta iasued against the parties for aasault and battery Payne was arrest-d by patrolmen Harvey and Hurdle, of the county metropolitan police, and the case was laid before Justice Donn. Mr. J. H. Bradley, Jr., appeared for Luigo, and in the conversation that ensued Mr. Koas and Mr. Bradley had some sharp words relative to the latter's advice to hla client. Mr. Bradley struck at Ross, and a acufle ensued, but the parties were separated All the parties to the Ten ally town case were ruled for hearing before Justice Donn on Thursday next. Accident?Last night between fl and 7 o clock, Thomas Welch, an old and well-known uackman, was driving around with two passengers, Thomaa A Brown and Thomaa W. Burch, In his coach, and In attempting to pass along Second street, at the culvert on Pennsylvania avenue,where the bank of the Tiber is dilapidated and the carriageway narrow, he drove too near tbe edge and he, with his horses, coach and passengers were tumbled down tbe bank Brown and Burch escaped from the coach without serious injury but the driver waa caught under the carriage In the stream and drowned; the only mark upon the body being a cut on the forehead, not sufficient to cause death of itself. Tbe bosses were badly bruised and the coach smashed Welch was near sixty years of age, and half his life has been spent In the back bualness. He leaves a wife and two children, a son and daughter The body was taken to his late residence on Massachusetts avenue, near Fifth street, by Roundsman Cronln and squad of the Metropolitan police. President's Mounted Guard?No better evidence of the Interest manifested by our fellowcitizens in tbe cause of the Lnlou need be asked than was evinced at the called meeting of some ex-members of the above corps held In Casparls' Hotel last evening Quite an unexpectedly large number of our solid men were congregated, and the energy with whirb the reorganization of the favorite old corps was taken in hand, gives abundant proof that not only will the old guard be reorganized, but that a squadron of cavalry will be raised before winter sets in for the defense of this city. We beard it rumored that the Secretary of War strongly favors the Immediate reorganization of the old corps as a nucleus for a whole regiment, to which he would be disposed to extend all the favors the Government can consistently.
