Cincinnati Enquirer : A novel di
vorce suit has just boon lorinlmited in
llio Owen county , Imlitina , clrcuitcourt.
The parties to the suit wore John W.
Mcdnris , who bad lived happily ns hus
band iuul wife for so von years , with not
u cloud to mar tlioir domestic felicity.
About two months ago n third party ,
mulled Elijah Hlnrratt , of Ulay county ,
inndo IHH ( lobtit in the neighborhood of
the Modaris household. lie met Mrs.
Medarisand it was a case of love at
first sitrht. A tioldnoss sprung up be
tween the husband und wife. The re
sult was a suit fop divorce by mutual
agreement , which is best related as fol
"The parties to this suit agree that
they will separate by agreement , and
that each shall testify in behalf of the
other.1' With this understanding they
went into open court and testilicd in
the case. The judge granled n decree
of divorcement , and within ilfteen min
utes the newly divorced lady , accompa
nied by KlijahStarrott , nri'sentud them
selves before the now astonished judge
nnd demanded that ho say the marriage
ceremony for them. Within fifteen
minutes , and . by the same judge , Mrs.
Medaris was the wife of Mr. Starrott.
The lute husband witnessed the mar-

Atlantic Monthly : In the earliest
> eriod , when population was small ,
scattered and agricultural , when so
ciety was simple , frugal and consorva-
ive , respect for law and conformity to
civil regulations were almost universal.
Moreover , as settlers of the same race
ind faith usually dwelt together , there
was unanimity of sentiment in the pro
tection of the common interest and the
maintenance of social order. Hence
, ho statutory forms for the celebration
) f marriage worn genorrlly observed.
Though not all essential , the impnrtlnl-
.ty with winch they were enforced
spread abroad the salutary impression
that they were equally indispensable to
const ) Into matrimony.
Now , this is a great , n rapidly grow
ing nation. There exists the widest
diversity of race , religion and senti
ments. Population is congregating in
cities. Labor , forsaking the Holds , is
crowding into factories and tenements.
In the sliops , in the factories , in nearly
every occupation , at great odds anil
under peculiar temptations , women
compote with men in the sellish , exact
ing struggle for w-cfermentt , for daily
bread. Industrial struggle and
discontent and social evils are rife
in the community. In view of
those facts , are wo fortifying our social
institutions , and strengthening" the
foundations of social order ? And the
family the unit and the source of so
ciety are we guarding its dignity and
confirming its approaches by the sancti
ties of religion and the safeguards of
luw ? Nay , our courts are forsaking.not
protecting , are tearing down , not build
ing up , "the very basis of the whole
fabric of civilized society. " For the
knowledge is rapidly spreading from
the highest courts in this country that
in forming the marriage relation there
is no need of magistrate or minister , or
of any formality whatever. "J.t is sin
gular. " said Chief Justice Gilchmt , of
Now Hampshire , "that the most impor
tant of all human contracts , on which
the rights and duties of the whole com
munity depends , requires loss formality
for its validity than a conveyance of an
acre of land , a policy of insurance , or
the agreements which the statute of
frauds requires should bo in writing. "
What wonder , then , that the disregard
of the "toglslntivo recommendation
and advice" is constantly increasing ,
and the evils of clandestine marriages
and secret unions , by destroying the in
tegrity of the family , is sapping the
foundations of society ! Can the 'courts
deny an easy termiuation to. the rela

"Tho contract of marriage is thomost
important of nil human transactions , "
yet , the form and circumstances of its
execution buing loft to the will and ca

and obscurity , "
"Whether the relation of husband
and wife lawfully exist never
should bo loft uncertain. " Thc-so nro
tlio words of Chancellor Kent ; and yet
it is u corrollary of the doctrine which
ho introduced that the existence of this
contract , when judicially called in ques

dence of the. subsequent conduct of the
parties nnd of their reputation in the
But it may bo said , that in faetficcreoy
and uncertainty are rare in forming tlio
marriage rotation , because cuatom and

Now Brunswick special to the New
York World ; The story of Dolly Wil
liams , or , more properly speaking , that
of Mrs. Peter V. Bergen , who has been
a prisoner in her mother's house for
three weeks , created a sensation here
among the members of the First Baptist
church , of which she has been a mem
ber for Hovorul years. Three years
ago Dolly Williams graduated
from the Ili'gl ) . school. Shu desired to
k op up tlio acquaintance of some young
men who were from the humbler walk"
of life , but her mother said she 'must
look higher. Dolly , who is quite attrac

n respectables young shoemaker. Lu t
summer Mrs. Williams learned of the
intimacy existing between Dolly and
Barren , mil her explicit prohibition
only made the girl moro fixed in her
doturminat.io\ ! \ ) in September Miss
Dolly-Williams became Mrs Peter V
Borgon. The wedding was solemnized
by Rex * . Mr. Potter , of the village of
Washington , unknown to'tho mothqr.
1 M/H. Williams did not .Kjarn tha ;
Dolly was married until three tracks

she was con lined , und denying1 ad nil t-

Ills visits Bergen attracted hlswlfe's at

rash attempt to escape. Yesterday mu

doavorlng to reunite tHoseparated pair.
Mrs. Williams remains oburato and
will not allow her daughter to Icavo the

so , now that the story is known. He is

Two Wives With Hut n Singles Ijiml.
St. AlbntiB ( Vt. ) special to the Now
York World : Early last winter a Mctho-
llst clergyman went to the town of
Georgia , olght miles from hero , nnd
started a revival. Among the members
of his flock was Miss Emily K. Post ,
l.hlrty-ono years of age , and before long
-he minister applied to the town clerk
for a marriage license. The document
was issued , permitting the marringo ot
Rev. Benjamin A. Hill , of Milton , Vt. ,
and Miss Post , and the ceremony was
performed with great pomp by Uov. A.
One of those in lown who did not suc
cumb to the Uov. Mr. Hill's preaching
was curious to know something about
Ihn minister , and wrote to Seattle , W.
T. , whore Hill had formerly preached ,
inking about him. The reply came
.hat Hill had a wife and live cnildron
.11 Seattle. Tills led to a further in
vestigation , nnd now State-Attorney
Hullinan has proofs that Hill was mar
ried to Frances J. Fewings in 1877. No
Hvorce proceedings have over been
icld , so the reverend gentleman was
arrested and held in 81,000 for bitrnmy.
As ho could not give bail ho is now in
[ ail. Hill says that his side of the case
nisn't boon heard. Ho at first claimed
, hat ho had been divorced , but now
leclines to say that or anything else
about the case.

Among those who visited the college

county , and his daughter , Miss Emmie.
While the father was interested in the
course of study and kindred matters ,
the young lady's eyes fell upon the In
dian student. When she went away
she carried his imago with her , and ho ,
in turn , could not banish the thought of
the young girl from his mind. A corre
spondence sprang up , which was consid
ered by the lady's family merely ns a
passing incident. Tlio father was soon
astonished to receive from the Indian : i
declaration of his love for his daughter.
