DivoacES.—The San Francisco Mercury
says that during the past year 1,048 mar
riage licences were issued in that County,
and during the same time 178 divorces
were granted by the courts of that city.
From this record it will be seen that the di
vorces of San Francisco equal about seven
teen per cent, of all the marriages. This is
a truly startling record and the San Jose
Mercury argues from it that of marriages
more than one in three are tolerably
harmonious, and probably not' more than
one married pair in ten are truly married,
