Divorce* and Matrimonial Kquabble*.
Tbe opinion is expressed by a leading and
well informed Northern paper that the pres
ent period is now noted in that regibn for
infelicities and divorces than any other in
the history of the country. The divorce dis
ease appears to be raging in every direction,
mostly arising from hasty and selfish mar
riages- Many divorces are obtained through
the connivance of both parties. Infidelity is
charged by the wife or husband against one
of the parties, and one of tbe two consents
to remain silent under the false imputation
for the sake of securing the divorce, and
often on both sides with the intention of
marrying a second time. Tbe marital bonds
set so loosely upon some married couples t
that the most solemn of all earthly unions
are thus often treated with tbe utmost levity.
a CURIOUS DIVORCE CASE OUT WEST.
There is a case in point out West, where a
young and rather pretty female, in Indiana,
has, within the past two years, been married
and divorced three times—twice to the same
man. Taylor strayed off in dixie, and fought
for his rights with Simon Boliver Buckner.—
Mrs. Taylor sued lor divorce, got it, and con
soled herself with a brief period of connu
bial felicity, wherein a Mr. Frazier was a
party of the first part. Taylor, having fixed
up tbe matter of bis rights, came up to look
after his matrimonial interests. He prevailed
on Mrs. Taylor, that had been Mrs. Frazier,
that she should again seek the intervention
of the courts, which she did successfully,
turning poor Frazier out into the cold, and
again marrying Taylor.
The las' marriage proved incompatable,
and the gay and festive lady soon managed
to obtain a third divorce, leaving Taylor and
Frazier to console themselves with a mutual
recital to large circles of sympathizing friends
these extraordinary freaks of Ero3, while the
lady is sharply looking out for number 4.
Such is life in Indianapolis.
TUB STRONG DIVORCE CASE.
The famous divorce case of Peter R. Strong
agt. Mary E. Strong, was up in tbe Superior
Court of New York on Thursday last, when
tbe trial commenced. This suit has attracted
public attention for a year past. The peculiar
circumstances of its surroundings, and tbe
high social position of tbe parties on both
sides of the suit, rendered it as absorbing in
its interest as the well known Forrest divorce
case. The action was brought by Mr. Strong,
a well known lawyer, to procure a divorce,
on the ground of adultery from his wife, who
is the daughter of John A. Stevens, the
President of tbe Bank of Commerce, and
sister of John Austin Stevens, Jr, Secretary
to tbe Chamber of Commerce. The impro
per intercourse is charged to have been com
mitted with a brother of her own husband.
Tbe lady denies all the allegations of her
husband, and in answer, charges Mr. Strong
with being an adulterer, and claims a divorce
from him. Mr. Strong was in Court, and
seated next to his counsel, he is about forty
years of age, saturnine complexion, well
dressed, and to all outward appearances a
very gentlemanly personage ; as might be
expected, he takes a deep and absorbing in
terest in all the proceedings. Mrs. Strong
was not in Court. She is said to be a very
fine looking lady, and a few years younger
than her husband. She was represented by
her brother and father.
Palmerston's Deathbed. —The following
account of the state of Palmerston’s mind at
the time of his death, is from the last letter
of Mr. Conway, the London correspondent
of the Boston Commonwealth:
“I have the following from unquestionable
authority. When it was perceived that
Lord Palmerston would not recover, a cler
gyman, accompanied by Lord Hhaftsbury,
visited him for the purpose of having some
religious conversation with him. They found
the old man in a very low condition- The
clergyman asked him if he thought the me
dicines which had been given him were bene
ficial . “Yes.” The clergyman then hinted
that there was another medicine which was
of infinitely greater importance. “What is
it?”said Palmerston. “The blood ot Christ,"
replied the clergyman, who, with this for an
opening, went on into a religious exhortation.
When lie came to a pause, Palmerston said
only “Go on.” The clergyman, pleased
with this, went on wilh further religious re
marks, and coming to another pause, Pal
merston said again, “Go on." Much encou
raged by this, the clergyman continued fer
vently, and Lord Shaftsbury, who is very
pious, joined in with him. At length Pal
merston said, “That is well; now read the
sixth article.” No one present knew what
this meant, and the clergyman referred to
the sixth article in the prayer-book, which,
however, shed no light on the mysterious re
quest. On testing the dying man’s mind
further, it became evident that he had sup
posed that twas listening to the treaty ot
Utrecmt, article whereof related to
the surrender of Dunquerque.
