The Strong Divorce Case. —The trial of the Strong divorce case, which has attracted so much attention, was resumed in New York last week. The parties occupy the highest social position. The injured hus band is a bank President and wealthy man, witti a Fifth Avenue Mansion in New York and a splendid Country seat at Islip. He had surrounded his wife with all the luxu ries and comforts of life. She is the asso ciate Os ladies iu the highest social ranks. It appears from the testimony that she is a motner, a church woman and a charitable person. She commits sin with her husband's brother, who, according to the leslimoiny, is a man of honorable fame in the commu nity, a pillar of the Church and an exem plary character.' These two guilty persons, it seems, had too much time aud 100 much money to adhere to the path of virtue. Tb<y lived so long in the full enjoyment of the de lights of prosperity and virtue that they ' tempt fate and each other for the sake of newer sensations, and they have certainly succeeded in stirring up the social mind of Gotham and offending the nostrils of hu manity. One of the witnesses in the case wag Mrs. Beujamin N. Strong, the sister in law of the guilty woman, who proved the hand writing of the inconstant wife, Mary Strong, with the following confession which was placed in evidence : “The following is freely given to an injur ed husband by a loving wife, to prove that if at any future lime he should be driven by. the power of his wretchedness to a course ot reckless misery and despair,that mv faithless ness has been the whole cause of it. On the evening of January 4th, 1862, I made in (die bitterness of my soul a full aud free con fession of a course of guilt which had stain ed my life, and extended over a period of nearly two years. God’s merciful judgment has snapped the cord of iuiquity, aud Ilis streneili lias enabled me to confess the crime to him I had wronged, aud relieved my con science of the heavy weight ol concealment “If my husband stales beneath the blow and is driven to destruction, I wish to bear the blame ; I wish it to be known to all that he may be excused and shielded from ap proach. f "May God avert the dreadful issue— 3end peace to his heart—grant to me a sincere re pentance and forgive me. Makv E. Strong. January 6th; 1862.” The testimony of Mrs. Frances Strong was then resumed. She also testified to the au thenticity of the above letter and also to that 0 t.i-P blowing, dated January 16, 1862 : Edward N. Strong: A judgement of God lias arrested tne in my career of siu, and thrown down the barrier of concealment. My husband knows all. Whatever maybe the issue of that knowledge, my affections arc again entirely his. I repeat bitterly. * Mary E. Strong.”' Ou her cross examination, Mrs. F. Strong nanated the family habits as to goiug to Church and to holding prayer meetings, in which Peter, Edward and Mary participated, aud also both relations existing between Ed ward Strong, the guilty paramour and his brother, tile outraged husband, which it ap pears, were of a cold friendless character, even before the discovery of the crimes of the wife. During the reading oi the two let ters of the wife the husband shed tears in court. FLORIDA NEWS, The Jacksonville (Fla.) Union of the 9th instant, says sufficient information has been obtained to determine that the fol looting named gentlemen have been elected, viz: Judge D. S. Walker, Governor; Major W W. J. Kelly, Lieutenant Governor; B. F. Allen, Esq., Secretary of State; Mr. Gal braith, Attorney General; Col. Pyles, Comp troller General; Air. Austin Treasurer, and I erdinand McLeod, of Lake City, Represen tative to Congress. Judge B. A. Putman has been elected to the Judgeship ot the Eastern Circuit, Col. T. T. Long of the Suwannee Circuit, Judge J. Wayles Baker of the Middle Circuit, and Judge Allen Bush of the Western Circuit., The Union also announces the arrival on the Ist instant of the steamship Indian River, from New York. She was specially fitted out, and bore a crew and working pai ly, for the purpose of engaging in the enterprise of establishing a fishery at Indian River. She belongs to a company in New York, organ ized with a large and adequate capital for the successful prosecution of its objects. The Florida stockholders are Doctor John D. Wescolt and Col. Titus, who will direct the operations at Indian Rivejr. Mr. Truman, the correspondent of the New York Times, is at Jacksonville. The Jacksonville Times of the Cth suys it is rumored that the vessel laying for some time off the gulf coast for “emigrants for Brazil” was nothing more than a slave trader gathering up unsuspecting negioes for trans portation to Cuba. The Gainesville Era says, developments are such that it becomes the duty to organ ize the Militia at once. Tue l.'Aiir.ijßATiON- of Governor Orr of Soum Carolina.— The inauguration of the Governor eii ct, of South Carolina, took place on tiro zutu ult. There was nothing uuusuu , says a dispatch, to mark the occasion, save that the gay and brilliant assemblage ot la dies in former years was reduced to a thin attendance clothed in the garb of mourning. The farewell address of Governor Perry excited evident teelings of emotion, while the inaugural address „f Governor Orr was listened to with breathless attention. The old Constitutional oath ot office to support he Constitution of the State and of the Uni ted States was administered bv the Chief Justice ol_Ute State, H„ u . ».

By tbe arrival of the steamship San Jacinto fioia New York on the 9th, we are placed in possession of three days later files. The crowded slalf precludes our giving more than a synopsis of the news - The ratification of the amendment to the Constitution prohibiting slavery by the lag jslature of Geoigia, made that amendment naturally aparlot the National Constitution, Georgia being the twenty-eigbth to adopt it. The despatch of Provisional Governor John son "to the President announcing the lact made a “sensation” at the North. The most important of the Congressional news has already been given by telegraph. The staudiug committees of the Senate had been announced. In both Houses various portions of the President's message were re ferred to the pioper committees. In the House, a resolution was offered and referreJ to the Judiciary Committee, proposing an other amendment to the Oonstitqjjon. to the effect that duties on exports shall lie legal, that no portion of the rebel debt shall ever : be recognized, aDd that Congress shall have power to secure equal liberty aud protection to all persons throughout the country- A resolution was offered, but laid over, for a committee to report in reference to refunding the several States their war expenditures. Congress adjourned on the 6th until the next Monday. Later intelligence from Europe is to tfife efTect that in consequence of the threatened - interference of both France aud England in ( favor of the Chilians, Spain had resolved to I back out ot her movement against that coun- j try, and imperative instruct ions have been ; dispatched via New York to Admiral Pareja. commanding the Spanish blockading squa drou, to cease further operations. Stephens, the reputed Fenian Head Cen tre of Ireland, Imd escaped trotn the prison in which be had been confined, and large re wards amouutiug to sixty-five hundred dol lars had been offered for his recapture. The exact manner of his escape is still shrouded in mystety: hut it is known that some of the prison officials must have aided him. In the Loudon money market on the 2f>th ult. United States five-twenties closed at 64 l-4u<54 1-2, and British consols at 89 l-2a 89 :5 4. One hundred and eighteen citizens of Texas, all belonging to that class exempted from Executive amnesty who were worth over twenty thousand dollars, were, ou the Btli, it is reported, pardoned by the President. It is slated beyond a probability of contra diction that at the Cahiuel meeting, on the 7th. it was decided that Mallory, ex-rebel Secretary of the Navy, and now in confine ment at Fort Lafayette, should be tried by civil tribunal within the next thirty days. It was understood that the matter was brought up for decision by reason of the efforts that have lately lieen made by the family connec tions oi Mallory to obtain his release on parole. The investigation which tjie higher branch ot the Fenian government iseugaged iu mak ing into the management of matters in New York, has already resulted in a report an nouncing the detection of an effort to issue sixty eight thousand dollars worth of bonds with the signature of a person as agent of the Irish republic who liad heed rejected by the Senate. The Fenian President in New York city, Mr. John O'Mahony, publishes a card ad dressed to the Brotherhood, in which he warns them against becoming disquieted jy the alleged disclosures of the certain investi gations, which he says are being prosecuted without legal authority. The New York Herald of the 9th publishes “a still more complete list of the English statesmen and leading citizens whose uamSs appeared on the rebel books as holders ot the bonds of the Confederacy at the time of the last payment of interest, in November, 1864, showing the amount with which each was credited and those of them by whOm llreir interest was drawn. This latter class included more than two-thirds of the entire number, there boiDg over two hundred of them among the whole three hundred sub scribers. The list now given contains all the names that appeared ou the first oue, inclu ding those of Mr. Gladstone, a member of the British Cabiuet, and well known mem bers of the nobility, of Parliament and of the English mercantile community, Advices from-Mexico state that the cause .rs the lucent raising ot the seigeof Malamo ras by the Mexican republicans under Gene ral Escobedo, is explained to have been sole ly a lack of ammunition. A shipload pur chased in ou.e of our Northern cities was delayed in iMßtrrivnl, nud General Escobedo was therefore compelled to suspend Iris offen sive operations and withdraw a short distance from the town, where, at the date of latest accounts, he still remained ready to resume the siege as soon as this very necessary ma terial was received. It is said that General Weitzel's invis Igation has shown that the imperial charges that the gunboat Antonia was filed upou from the Texas shore of the liver were unfounded. President Juarez announces, in a decree, the extension of bis term of office, owing to the anomalous condition of affairs and the impossibility of holding the regular Presiden tial election. The President has accepted the resigna tion of Major Gen. Jno. A Dix aud Major Gen. B. F. Butler, to take effect from tbe list ultimo. The number of rebel prisoners captured during the war amounted to 329,00(1, of which 173,000 were taken during the last six monthsfif the rebellion. The number of Union prisoners raptured by the rebels dur ing tfie war is stated to have been 107,000. A bill has been introduced in Congress to revive the rauk of General. It is understood to be for the purpose of bestowiug the hon ors and emoluments of the office upou Lieu tenant General Grant. It will not meet with any serious opposition. The Currency Bureau has decided that la dies caunot act as directors of National banks, as the laws do not recognize them as citizens There is much complaint about tbe fre quent outrages oecurriug in Washington city, and many of the leading citizens are favoring the plan of revoking the city char ter aud placing its affairs entirely in the bauds ol Congress. Reports are being received at the Freed men's Bureau, gimug encouraging accounts of the manner in #ieli the business ot the Bureau is being carried on in tire Southwes tern Stales. Homes are being furnished and work supplied to great numbers of tbe idle and suftenug. Daniel L. Gibbons, of Boston, Treasury Agent at Mobile, committed suicide by ent ting bis throat on tbe 2d iustaut. Both Houses of the Louisiana Legislature have adopted a resolution declaring that Messrs, liabu and Carter, elected U.

In consequence of Hie tears of negro out breaks entertained by some of the people of \ irgiuia a proposition lor the organization of the militia has been submitted to the Legis iMsra ol the Slate.
