Trial of Barnard.

--This trial is still pending in the Circuit Court of Henrico. The testimony for the defence closed yesterday, and Mr. Young commenced his argument in behalf of the Commonwealth, but was interrupted by the sudden sickness of a juror, and the Court adjourned over to this morning at 10 o'clock. The defence, as we understand it, are endeavoring to make out, a justification of the homicide, on the ground of extreme provocation at the time of the recurrence, aggravated by an em ered feeting originating in a business transaction. Testimony has been, introduced to prove that Barnard was severely beaten by Taylor, though this was denied by the latter in his dying statement.
