LOCAL NEWS. CTTboutt> Tb* fTii la printed on the fastest itrim press To use south of Haiti mow, Its edition 1? to large a* to require It to be put to prees at an early hoar: therefore, should be eat In before 1* o'clock otherwise they may tay not appear until the next day. Th* Baisit Caii Bironi th* Oipha<i?' CoraT, Juno* Ptr*c*LL?Mr Davi Age's Argument ?On Monday, Mr Dsvldge commenced his argument for the respondent In thla caae, and aet out with the leading proposition that, by the law of thla District, the respondent la the natural guardian of hla Infant children, and as such entitled to the custody of their persons and estate, and the Orphans' Court haa no authority to appoint a guardian whilst respondent la willing to act and give the requisite security. In regard to what had been urged that this right ceased before the rendition of the Iowa decree, be contended that the decree of divorce Is a nullity, becauae the court which rendered It bad no jurisdiction of the parties No process was ever issued against respondent. and of course none served He bad no notice that the suit was pending, and no opportunity to defend It. He nt**r appeared In person or by attorney, but was wholly ignorsnt or the proceeding, and was absent in Europe when it was commenced, and did not return to tbla country until after the decree bad been rendered The only jurisdiction ahown by the record or pretended to eiiat. Is based upen publication of the obiect of the suit In an obscurs Iowa newspaper, and tbe sending of a notice to appear at tn? abode of respondent, and tbe calling htm three times " solemnly " In the courtroom, daring his absence abroad. Apart from the Constitution and act of Con5^* ' May iH, 1790, the decree, being the foundation of the present proceedings, would, upon principles of international law, be null and void, owing to the want of service of process. If this decree baa any efficacy, It flows frsm tbe Constitution snd tbe act of Congress ordering that judgments and decrees of one State sball have the same effect in the other States as where rendered But tbe Supreme Court hss repeatedly determined that no judgment or decree Is thus protected where there was not personal service of process, upon tbe ground that the design of the Constitution and act of Congr-.ia was to protect decrees and judgments which, by International law. were prima fat it evidence, and not to give effect t? them when, by such law, they were absolute nullities But for tbe provisions of the Constitution and the act a decree or judgment of a court In one State, having jurisdiction by actual service of process, would In another State be prima facie only, and the object waa to give Increased effect to such decree or judgment, but not to give validity to what waa a nullity by the rules of natural justice, as well as International law And to the same effect Is the ruling of every State court which has passed upon the question All refuse to give effect to decrees obtained as this was, as tbe authorities abundantly show Not only was the decree an u'ter nullity, owin? to want of jurisdiction over the defendant, but for the reason that the law of Iowa requ're 1 that no jurisdiction should attach In any dlvcrc; suit unless the petitioner had resided in the State ?ix months Mrs Barney left Paris in May, 1861 and on the *7th of July her petition was filed and the order was decreed on tbe 17th of September, 1801. Mr and Mrs Barney were citizens of this District, and not of Iowa. He then argued that the decree was obtained by ffsud The petition alleged thst Mrs Barney had resided six months in Iowa, and the evidence shows she had been there about two months No proof is shown to have been taken In support of the charges In the petition, but the decree was entered against the respoudent because he was technically "In default " Such a record does not show a "judicial proceeding" within the ' true mesning of the Cons.itution and act of Con- I gress Courts act upon evidence, not the statement of an interested party, though sworn to, and and the law of Iowa required tbe allegations of the petitioner to be proved He then asked, if the Iowa decree be held valid here, what Is its effect? It divorced Mr. and Mrs Barney, but not Mr Barney from his children In cutting asmder one domestic relation, that of husband and wife, it did not destroy another domestic relstlon, that of parent and child. The S revision giving Mrs B the custody of the cbilren suspended but did not extinguish Mr. B's right to the children as father. The mother is now dead, and the provision for personal benefit has ceased to operate, and the right of the father made to give way to sich provision, upon her death became as perfect as It ever was That the Iowa court preferred the mother to the father furnishes no reason why a stranger should now be preferred to him The authorities establish that the allotment of the children to the wife did not dissolve tbe relation of parent and child. The children were not emancipated at Mrs. B ? death and during her life the father was bound for their support The property of these children is by gift or purchase, and Mr B is " father1' according to the very term* of the act of Congress of 1846 He then said it was contended that the provision in the Iowa decree as to the custody of the children is an estoppel, but an estoppel binds parties snd privies as to the subject matter, and It is difficult to perceive who can claim under Mrs B , a benefit personal to her, and which expired at her death The children were not parties to the lo#a suit, nor was the petitioner, nor do they or be claim anything und. Mrs. B. There can be no estoppel as to matter Incidental and collected to tbe original suit and such the custody of the children plainly was Nor can there be an estoppel wh?re the decree was not tifel and conclusive, and the order as to the custody of the children was by the express law of Iowa liable to be changed or modtf ed at anytime The act of Congress gives the decree the ssme force here It had In Iowa, but it has no f'reater force. It was a mere provisional decree, ntended to be changed as often as circumstance* might require He then argued that this court has not the transcendent jurisdiction of the Court of Chancery over the relation of parent and child. The general terms of the act of '98 are controlled by the subject matter and tbe sanctity of the parental relation. It was never meant by that act to luvest this court with power to cite parents and confide tnetr children to other hands if a^cb parent*, In the opinion of this court, had been guilty of misconduct In regard to the persons or estate of the > children st sny time from their birth If such extrsordinary power exists in this court the Inquiry must be confined to the period since Mrs. B 's death; and assuming this power to exist, this ceurWri 11 be governed by the principle which, In similar cases, controls a Court of Chancery where the power Is never exercised, unle-s when owing to moral turpitude and degradation tbe parent Is utterly Incapable of discharging the duties which the lsw Imposes on him In relstlon to his children. He then said that applying this principle, the present application Is absurd. In conclusion he said he would take up the evidence to-morrow and show what lank performance bad followed the bloated assertions made at the openiog of the case by the other side. Dsaths or Soldi *as ?Tbe following soldiers died yesterday: John W Russell, comyany K, Seventh Pennsylvania cavalry, at the Circle Hospital.

But In the meantime some one seat word to the Provost Guard relative to other property in the house, disclosed by tbe search, which belonged to soldiers, Boyle was tak*a Into their custody.

At the ensuing term of the Circuit Cou^t, in the spring of 1852. Mr Jonea brought ault for the recovery of *20,380 under hla contract, and got Judgment for the balance due him under aaid contract. An appeal waa taken to the Supreme Court of the I nited State?, when, on a hearing of the case there, II waa contended by Mlaa Dermott'* counsel, that time waa the essence of the contract, and the contract having been violated waa thua Bet aaide. The Supreme Court remanded the caae nC* Circuit Court, with Instructions to allow Mr Jones payment for work done and materiala furntshed, deducting any^iamage proved to have been sustained by Mlas Dermott.
