The administration waa asked by Mrs Chase Barney's cousin on the g rotted that tbe lady had bees divorced. and that tbe law of Maryland of IKM miking her husband administrator did not apply. It was resisted oh the ground that tbe divorce, procured la lovrv on the 17th of Angust last, after only three months' residence, was nail and void, being contrary tbe law of that State, which require* six monthf residence, also on tbe ground that toe^e |s nothing whereee to admlnUter: and, farther, that the separate eetate ot ?be lady la re possible for debts th* Second Ward Bill to pavean^tley In square W> Bill to trim and grave) Sixth ?tr.et wnt from H to D streets north.

It being known that the Hon. Mr. Wlgfkll, of Texas, Yancoy, of Ala.,ai>d Jenkins, ot Vs., were in Ike city, on notion a committee was appointed to wait on those gentlemen and Invite them to address tbe association In the meantime, Mr. B. A Jamieoon. of Ind., was called upon, and entertained tb? ^isocisUoa until tbe arrival of Messrs. Wigfiilt and Jenkins, by the delivery of a truly eloquent and interesting address At the conclusion of Mr Jamieson's remarks, the President of the Associatton (Dr. Boyle) introduced Senator Wlgfall, of Texas, who lie said had kindly consented to address the association. This announcement was received with loud applause. Mr. Wlgfall commenced by saying that by his acceptance of the kind Invitation to address them It should not be implied thst he intended to make them a set speech. Ho came to exchange congratulations with them upon some facts which he would state as to the condftlon of the country through which be had come, rather than to make anything like a speech The fact of bia presence In Waatlngton should be a sufficient evidence that the State from which be hailed was aafe [Applause.] After the recent election In Tcxm tie found it unnecessary to remain there so far as c.invasslng was concerned Tbe enemy were then completely routed, and there was nothing nojw left of them excepting tbe dead and the wounded; and havlug no fancy to ride over a H?ld that bad already been ploughed by artillery and swept bv cavalrv?havtiur no Inclination to amuse himself in masaacreing the wounded and mutilating the dead, be thought be would come to tome country, if it could be found, where the enemy was standing In square ready for the charge In regard to the prospects in the various State* tbrongh which be bad traveled, be would say that Louisiana tbey expected to carry by a small in-jority: Mississippi and Alabama, of ccurae. were safe; in Tennessee, all parties admitted that unless Mr. Douglas couldcarrv off ten thousand tbey were sure of that State; Arkansas and Texas tbey would carry by overwhelming majorities. As to the other States be could give them uo information, iuasinuch as be knew uothing personally about them. In Mississippi, also, and Tennessee, be arid, their opponents were making singular charges against that uarty. In one breath tbey charged them with being dlsuuionists; with making new and lmnrartirahlfi issn?a ? ? r. vov<v laauu, V4 WD>U?UIIII|??tU ICBW" of political orthodoxy tbat tbe soundest democrats were driven from the platform; and in the same breath they charged them with having adopted an unmeaning and ?enseless declaration of faith. Tbey said, tfcat If by Mr Davis's resolutions, or tbe democratic platform, which embodied tbe prloetpl>* of those resolutions, bis party meant anything. ihev would have voted for Mr. Brown's slavt--< od?i bill, and for bis resolutions declaring that tbe emergency had already arisen. The elo2uent speaker replied to these various charges In atail, and gave ht? reasons for not voting ror tbe slave-code bill of Mr. Brown, aitd his proposition declaring tbe emergency to have arisen reqnirlng action by tbe Federal Government One of those reasons was, that the attempt to pass such a bill In the Senate would only involve a long, agitating discussion, without effecting the least good Even if pasied la tbe Senate, it con Id uot have been carried through tbe House Again, in tbe Presidential contest which was so soon to follow, the friends of the measure, if such had been passed, would have had their whole time engrcssed in defending tbe details of tbe bill, and had no time to dlsonss tbe great principles Involved. He, for one, aid not vote ettber for Mr. Brown's resolutions declaring tbat an emergency now existed, or for Mr: ClinyinanN, declaring that such emergency did not exist. This existence or non-exlsteace of su emergency was a question of fact about which he did not Intend or care to express an opinion. He reviewed at some length the political course of Jud^e Liouglas denouncing biiii at a spy. .Mr. Doughis could not be called a "traitor'' to the democratic party, because be was never a bona fidt member of that party. He was always regarded as unsound upou many of the reat principle* avowed by that party, such as tne internal improvement question, and tariff and others He was now frond to be unsound u)wb the ^reat ailabsorbing: question of "domestic slavery." He referred also to the doctrines and political record of Joltu Rell and Edward Everett. Their election would be highly detrimental to the dearest rights of the Soutu. This add eas was an exceeding able and interesting one; and though be spoke for upwards of an hour, lie was listened to throughout with the most jutease Interest T1* Hod Mr. Jenkins, of the thirteenth congressional district of Virginia, followed in a brief bat forcible speech. At th( Msxtihg of the Teachers' Association of Ibis city, ou Saturday evening last. Dr Detrich gave a criticism on Tenuey's lieology. The critic expressed the opinion that tbe best adapted work for the Sf honirooin that ha? thna 1*r h?n to the attention of teachers Mr O O. Wight gave a brief account of tha lste roeetineof the National Tearhers' Association at Buffalo, N. V* Mr. Wight expressed the pinion that the permanency of thi* association la no w a fli?d fact, and that It has entered upon a career?f influence and usefulness. The speaker also extolled In high terms the hospitality of the citizens of Buffalo. Mr Z. Richards made a brief report of the meeting of the American Institute held in Boston during the month of Augnst He stated that the most interesting feature of the meeting was the discussion of the snbject of physical training in schools, which elicited general interest, and was rendered rmiaently practical by the Introduction of Dr. Lewis, who not onlr gave an outline otf his j>!an for conducting physical exercises in connection vritU sohooia und families, but gave a very ist^resUi??f demonstration of the practicability of hia system by the exercises of a class before a lar^e and intrreated audience. The most skeptical were apparently convinced thst his system was not only practical but just snch as ought to be Introduced into ail our schools. Its characteristics are?1st Simplicity; id Adaptability, tirst in being calculated to develop and strengthen every part of the physical system, aud, second, to excite emotions or pleasure, fun aod competition; 3d Cheapness, so as to bring It within tLe reach of any school where there Is a suitable room, and a tewher who is Qualified to eive directions anil take toe trad. Dr wai called ap aeveral timet, and be succeeded li kindllug a spirit of enthusiasm and Interest which will not probably stop until every school of a prominent character shall adopt his system or something analogous. The Teachers' Association of this c ity will probably take up the report at its next meeting, and fIts a practical bearing to the subject. It may ) proper state In this connection that Mr. Rtenards stated that he hid Introduced tbe systeni successfully into the Union Female Academy, and in a mnrtner entirely satisfactory to himself and to *11 who had become acquainted with It; and we nnde'stand that Mr. and Mrs. Ktcliards will be pleased to wHoosna patents and guardiana, and peraees interested in thle education of youth te auty of the exercise* of their gymnasium er of Hjnr P uwi ; T | -I _ . , r J Thb Revival?The meetings are till In progress In aeverai churehes of the Method!it drmoaaMiaiiua, and with indications of mach longer cmtlm?ar,' although they tare already been prou acted nearly two weeks at aome of them The .loads threatened heavy rain laat night about the hoar of aervtce,*nd the congregations wove much leM than rrtnal.

Stewart acknowledged using the language, but plead that he did so in telling his opponent what the language was that he would have him fined for using. The witnesses were not positive whether Stewart quoted his opponent's words or not, but the case pnteil t?? the strange woman bis father showed him a certificate of bla mother's death in New Orleans. which wai false.
