This being the case, it was agreed that the counsel should keep a record of the evidence in the case. The testimony of each witness was accordingly written down by Mr. Fendall, of counsel for petitioner, and Mr. DaTldge, of counsel for respondent. The record kept by Mr. Dsvidge was read over to each witness, for correction, and was thus considered the .1.1 ? ..J WWT*. AS a M _ _ ? onciai recoru vv oen me cvmrnce was cioaea and tbe arguments concluded in November last, the Court requested counsel to fnrnisb for Its examination a list of tbe authorities cited, and a certified copy of the record. The record was not brought into court until yesterday Yesterday morning there appeared in court Messr* Fendall and Blount, counsel for petitioner, and Messrs. Davldge and Winder, counsel for respondent Judge Pureell stated that he bad been called on by counsel several times, to know If he had made a decision In tbe case; but it was Impossible for him to decide without an examination of the evidence. and a certtfird copy of the record had not been furnished him, according to agreement He waa anxious to elcse tbe case, but the Court w&a not responsible for tbe delay Mr. rtnwltUttd that be had examined a copy of the original record kept by Mr Davidge. which copy wm? prepared for the coart by Mr Winder, and that he found therein several omiaaions. He found that the evidence of one witness (Dr. John on) waa omitted entirely. He could not therefore certify to the copy. He had Interlined the omissions, and If thee jrrectlona were made would cerr'ff to It. After tome discission, in which the counsel on each side disclaimed any intention to delay the case, It was agreed to compare the records at once and come to an understanding If possible. Counsel then engaged in the work of correction, and after aome time an agreement wasfcrrlved at. No objection was of courae made to the addition of ?K? rv. * a I i . ja * IIK CTIUCIRCUI VI.

It la stated, are merely verbal, and do not materially effect the evidence.] Mr Fendall then stated that be bad received from France, and now presented for the consideration of the Court, the French record, properly authenticated. [This is the record of the proceedings for a separation of Mr and Mrs Barney before the French tribunals, objected to and ruled out during the progress of the case because it was not properly authenticated ] Mr. Davldge objected to re-opening the caae, and aald that If the door was again opened he would call to the stand Dr. Blgelow, of Paris, Mr. Barney's family physician, who was now * *- St Jit - a ? - urre 10 aocrcoii uw enaence 01 Aiexanarine Parfalt Mr. Fendall said If tbe gentleman would a lata what be expected to prove by Or.
