THE MJLRRIAGE MOCKERY.
More of th? Richardson Death-hod Nup?
tials-The Practical vs. the Sentimen?
tal Tl??-A. Heavy Onslaught upon
Kcnry Ward Beecher.
Th? Northern papers continue to discuss
with much warmth the recent extraordinary
death-bod marri ago of Rlclardson and Mrs.
McFarland. The current of opinion among
the leading presses, which, at first, was alto?
gether with Richardson, seems fast veering
ronnd In favor of the man whom he had so
deeply wronged, and who was goaded to un?
lawful vengeance. Nearly all tho Journals
?site in denounofng the conspicuous part taken
by the Bov. Henry Ward Beecher In the final
marriage mockery. Forney's Washington
Chronicle takes this practical view of the case:
18 TUS MAB RIAOS VALID ?
Mr. A. D. Richardson was a reputed stock
bolder In the New York Tribune Association,
and this gives to his recent marriage a rather
practical aspect as far as the widow is con
JL cerned, li we mistake not, a distinguished
/ American poet and writer once came into a
valuable estate through a similar death-bed
marriage. Tho operation of the law in these
cases-the rights of dower and tenant by
courtesy-relieves them largely of tho gla?
mour of sentiment which popularly surround
them. In this case, nnless Mr. Richardson has
specifically devised his property by will, tho
question of law will very likely be raised
whether there was any marriage at all. If
Mrs. McFarland was not legally divorced, then
the ceremony performed by Henry Ward
Beecher was void and of no effect Latterly
the courts of Pennsylvania and New York have
inclined against Indiana or Illinois divorces,
and In several cases have declined to recog?
nise their validity where delects In notices
ware pro ven.
"A. PCBUC OOTBiOM ON' RELIGION AND DE?
Under tam heading thc New York Sun thus
editorially suma up the points of this remarka?
ble case, and gives the notorious preacher of
Plymouth pulpit a foretaste of universal public
ion time nt as to his course:
Tho Astor House, in this city, was the scene
on Tuesday afternoon of a ceremony which
seems to us to set at d afiance all those senti?
ments respecting the relation of marriage
which regard lt as anything Intrinsically supe?
rior to prostitution. The high priest of this
occasion waa Henry Ward Beecher, assisted
by the Rev. Henry M, Field, D. D.. and the
Ber. O. B. Frothingham. The parties wore
Albert D. Richardson, lying wounded by a pis?
tol shot upon abed of Illness, and probably of
death, and Mrs. McFarland, alias Mrs. Sage,
whom Richardson some time ago seduced
from allegiance to ber lawful wedded husband.
Ibis busband bad been guilty of a crime to?
ward his wife-the crime of poverty. It was I i
even said that, harassed by tho loss of his pro-1 (
porty and tbe conduct of his wife, he had somo
- times taken to his cups, to drown care, and
had occasionally been exasperated to speak
harshly to toe partner of his bosom, although,
on tbe other band, no charge of adultery was
ever made against him, and lt appears to be
uncontradicted that he was generally so do-1 ?
roted to her that bis exceeding conjugal affec?
tion attracted attention and elicited Troquent
remarks from bis acquaintances.
Mrs. McFarland was a woman of personal at?
tractiveness. She aad her husband and chil,
dren, tn tbe year 1S67, occupied apartments
adjoining those ot Richardson, wno was a
young widower, with children. As wo are In?
formed, Mrs. McFarland got Into the habit of I
going ont to lunch frequently, if not daily, | |
with Richardson. After this had gone on for
?orno tune, her husband remonstrated with ,
ber against such a practice, telling her that it '
would give rise to scandal. She replied that j
. abe bad not before reflected upon that conse- !
quence, and promised immediate amendment.
Coming home earlier than usual tbe next day, ,
McFarland was met in the hall by bis wife, who .
esme rushing suddenly and as if surprised
from Richardson's apartments, and then by j
Way of atonement she threw her arms
oonrolslvely around him and buried him lu
. shower of passionate kisses. They
then went to bis room, whero ho gently re?
minded ber that abs had broken her promise;
she again promised reform; they spent tho
night together, sod In the morning she con?
tinued to cover bim with terms ol' endearment,
finally begging bim, as he left, to return
earlier than usual, assigning tis the reason of
bar request that she had not had enough ot his
society of late; that she was lonely, and wished
to see more of him. In compliance with her
impassioned wish, he did return earlier than
usual, and found on hie table a note from his
xnfe, stating that she had left him t Tn fact,
- Richardson had taken her and his two children
awayf?vm Mm and his home, whither he knew
not. Subsequently, finding Richardson escort?
ing ber borne from a theatre late at nighi, he
fired a revolver st him, but Inflicted only a
flesh wound. One of his children he afterward
found ia Massachusetts. He succeeded in re
covering possession of the child before tho
Supremo Court of that State bj* aid of thu
sacred writ of ?tabeas corvus.
On the 12th of March, 1*69, Richardson pub?
lished a card, containing the shameless state?
ment-respecting a woman who was thc
" I wile of another, man-that after the
ID between Mrs. McFarland and her
M tl came to be understood between her
and-myself, ihat whenever she should bo legally
she should become mywij i." Yet no bl?
eut, reasoning human beirg can doubt,
tba evidence m thc case, l ' at this separa
was promoted and brou.- it about-and
not unlikely originally suggest'-'i-by Richard?
Atlast, driven to frenzy b the loss of his
fare than Ufa, and bv the c i temptation of
? wife, the mother of Ms children, reposing
l|ie gnus of her seducer, he shot that seduc?
er-who was armed at the time to receive
bim-through tho body, Inflicting upon him a
wound from the effects of which the seducor
has since been fluttering between llloand
death. We uss tho word seducer in its exact
sense; we mean tbe man who led this woman
from herself;for be who crawls, like tho ser?
pent In Eden, Into a household and estranges
from a husband tbs affections of a wife, is
equally ber seducer, whether he himself bas
marital relations with, ber before or after a
mock religious ceremony. As the great and
eloquent John Whipple said, "He who eaters
the dwelling o? a friend, and. under thc shel?
ter and protection of friendship and hospitali?
ty, corrupts the integrity of his wile or daught?
er, by the common consent of mankind ought
to bo consigned to an immediate gallows."
An easily misguided woman, led on by Rich?
ardson, and cheered and encouraged bv hu
Free-love allies, this wife and mother resorted
' to Indiana, wbere, forgetting her early plight*
Sd faith, by the loose and easy process therein
rogue, sbo prooared a legal divorce.
f'Wlth bold. Irreverent brow,
And loose, free step, her pervious wsy she trod,
J>ownward sud on till she denied her God,
And broke tho marriage vow."
For had shs not rowed to take McFarland
for ker husband, for better, for worse, until
DEATH-nothing ?190-should part them ?
But lt is said that her husband was poor,
and sometimes harsh ! And so the Rev. Hen?
ry Ward Beecher comes and marries ber to
another man, to wit, this man Richardson !
And now, consider, married men of New
York, husbands and fathers, by what frail and
brittle tenure your homos are yours. It you
fall In your business-and it ls said that nine?
ty-five out of one hundred business men at
some time fall-then the younger and hand?
somer face of your widowed neighbor may
charm away your wife; tho laws of Indiana
will grant a divorce to the fair truant, and
Henry Ward Beecher, with the Rev. Dr. Field,
of the New York Evangelist, standing at his
right band, and the Rev. 0. E. Frothingham
to implore a blessing on the sin, stands ready
to marry her to the first libertine who will pay
-not In affection, but in gold or greenbacks
tbe price of ber frail charms ! If it be said
that poverty was not the only crime oftMcFar
land, then rest easy, hasbands and fathers, at
least all of you who never, in any moment of
trial and vexation, have uttered one Impatient
or petulant word !
yes, it Is the pious, the popular, tbe admired,
the revered Henry Ward Beecher who comos
boldly and even proudly forward, holding by
the band and leading lust to her triumph over
religion ! Who can read tbe narrative, and
not wish that Plymouth Church were sunk Into
the ground until the peak ot Its gable should
so beneath the surface of the earth !
Asi Mr. Beecher was assisted by the Rev,
Mr. Frotaingham, who blasphemed In u prayer
to God which contained these words :
" Father, ree thank Thee for lohat these two
have been to each other, and for what they may
Mr. Frothlngham may plead In his defence
that he does not believe in the Scriptures ; but
Mr. Beecher, who has been engaged for seve?
ral years past upon a Ufe of Christ, should
have reminded him that our Saviour said : " I
say unto you, that whosoever shall put away
his wife, saving for tho cause of fornication,
causeth her to commit adultery ; and whoso?
ever shall marry her Hutt is divorced committeth

Dorsetchlr* Laborer* at Home.
A Blue-book jost published in England con?
tains some startling revelations as to the life
of the Dorsetshire laborer and his family. Kr.
Stanhope, tho Assistant Commissioner for the
district, under tho Women and Children's Em?
ployment Commissioner, examined, in the
course of his inquiries, a number of the land?
owners, clergy, farmers and laborers. The
evidence given by some of the laborers ls pa?
thetic. The following ls a part of thc story
told by a shepherd's wife near Blantforl :
"My husband is the shepherd. He has 10s. a
week and the house, because he works on Sun?
day. He has ?1 at harvest, and ?2 at lambing,
(but he bas to buy fuel at lambing; sometimes
ho doesn't go to bed for a night or two;) he
has nothing extra for tho lambs he saves. My
husband has to lind his own tools, even hi's
shears for clipping; they all have to buy their
tools; they say they used to be found; hooks
for haymaking were not. I have known our
boys to lay out 9s. on tools.
"What potato ground we have Ls close to
the house; it's more than 30 feet long, but
'taters, 'taters every year, they don't turn out
very mnch. We can't afford to buy any more
potatoes; when oura are out wc have to do
without them. I have seven at home with me
now. Last winter we got but a very little
after we had our bread. We'd had a bag ol
Sour, we gave ?3 for lt; that would last about
three weeks. Shoes ls very dear; our little
children's is 7s. or 8s., a man's ls 12s. Gd.; one
of my boys doesn't wear out above one pair in
the year, but they must bo proper good ones.
I expect they'd wear them right out. and they
wouldn't last without being soled and mended.
That would be when they are shepherd's lads;
after that they'd wear very much quicker."
The shepherd's family get a little butcher's
meat now and tben, but not from tho butcher.
"Wo don't," s?id the shepherd's wife, "buy a 1
blt from Christmas to Christmas." This is how j
they got It : "We sometimes get a bit of mut- I
ton at 3d. a pound, when a giddy sheep is kill- (
ad off tho farm; lt ls good when sticked in (
elmo." Meat from the butcher comes only at [
Jhrlstmas. At other times "we live on pota- t
?cs, broad and pig meat, and are very thank- j
ful if we can get a blt of pig meat; we often (
jit down to dry bread, fox harvest dinner (
ire send ont samo boiled- potatoes, a bit of j
cabbage, and we put a blt of fat to tho pota- I
oes. I don't know that butcher's meat ever j
joes out to the harvest field. They drink I
:ocoa at harvest. Wc never flavo a blt of j
milk. They used to have what they called I
:hickory, and we dranked a good bit of it. j
But now it seems to have gone away. In the j
?venlng they sit down to what we'vo got, }
sometimes a blt of bread; sometimes a bit of ]
Dread, cheese and butter." The shepherd's 1
,'amlly are housed and covered in this wise : j
"Our third bedroom was put up the summer I
>efore last. Before that time we had only two, '
ind wc used all of us to sleep in them; ut one 1
.Imo there was thirteen or fourteen of us. Ono .
>f them is a tl dy I sh room; in tho other the j
loor only opened for you to go in sideways, j
5own stairs we have only one room with a ]
(replace, and wo have to dry all tho wet j
slothes and sit there too. We have ono binti- J
cet that was given us. Wo had one that wu '
cot from a man who came round; we paid for J
t ls. a fortnight, we can't got enough money !
it one time to buy one." jj
This witness said her husband's master was J
i very good man; but (sho added,) "farm
?haps work so hard that they might as soon be
transports.' They don't like being 'drove
ibout' as they aro at farm work; they don't,
enow what sort of work they may bo put to.
t's slavish work, and I'vo heard many of tho
leonie say they would go away if they could. ,
)ne of my sons is gone to America; and there's ji
mr Jim, he says he'd bo away too if it wasn't r
br his bad leg. They Uko to be good schol- ?
tra, because it helps them to go away."

pB* PREPARATORY MEDICATION.
Tho human system, the most delicate and sensi?
tive of all created things, should bc duly prepared
to meet thc shock occasioned by a sudden change
In tho temperature of the air. Even the solid met?
als contract and expand under cold and heat-so
that if man were composed of Iron, Instead of |
frail tissues and fibres, circulating fluids and brit?
tle osseous matter, his frame would not bc proof
against the vicissitudes of climate. As it is, it be?
hooves every ones, especially the feeble, to fortify
the frail tenement of mortality against the ln
clemeney of tho present season. A wholesome,
strength-supplying vegetable tonic and alterative
is the preparatory medicine required, and among
medicinal agents of this character, noSTETTER'S
STOMACH BITTERS stand supreme. In a suc?
cessful career of nearly a quarter of a century,
the preparation has never been equalled or ap?
proached, and Its sales are now larger than those
of any half dozen articles, purporting to belong to
the same class, that has ever been advertised In
this country. As n remedy and preventive of j
Dyspepsia, and all its complications, it may be
said to have lived down competition and to bethe
standard speclflo of the Western Hemisphere. A
course of this genial restorative at the commence?
ment of winter ls the surest safeguard against all
the complaints which are caused or aggravated
by exposure to cold._deco note
