weeks, some of the members not even
that long, and they can already render

A suit for divorce was brought up
in Court the first part of this week.
The parties to the suit were both col
ored. Under existing law divorce can
be granted in this Stat. for two caus
es only, adultery, and wilful adandon
ment for the space of two years. The
question of abandonment was the
issue in the suit referred to. Upon
being submitted to the jury, it was
decided in favor of the defendant,
(the wife,) and the application in
consequence refnsed. This is the first
instance of a case of this nature over
being-placed in charge of a jury in
-this County, and we hope it will be
the Zast. We believe that the Blibli
eeL law shonuld alwa.y preail tat

A St.-Louis paper says that a man
named Henry Neley went down in
a well on Saturday night at Bissell's
Point, for the purpose of recovering a
hat which had been dropped in. In
a short time he gave a signal of dis
tress, which told those above him that
he was being overcome with foul
air. There was but little time for
deliberation. A .rope was hastily
procured by the bystanders, one end
of which was formed into a noose
and let down to the sufferer. After
angling a moment the man in tha
well gave the rope ajerk, and the men
other end commenced pulling it up.
When about half way out they dis
covered that the hoose had fallen over
the man's head, and that he was
dangling by the neck. Horrified at
the discovery, they wisely concluded
that death by strangulation was no
worse than death by suffocation, and
so they continued to pull away until
they landed Neeley on terra firma in
an unconscious state. By the appli.
cation of proper restoratives lie was
resuscitated and is now doing well.
