DJVURUES ia OHIO-UPWARDS or
800 LAST YEAH.-The Cincinnati!
Gazette has au interesting condensa?
tion of that portion of tuc report of
the Ohio Commissioner of Statistics
for 1865, which relates to thc number
and character of divorces. It says:
The whoie number of divorces in
this State reach tho number of 837 in
ono year. Thia, at the present popu?
lation of the State, is one to 3,000
persons, and one divorce to twenty
six of the annual number of mar?
riages. It is not a very pleasant
thought, that when we look upon
twenty-six couples of young married
people, we know that oue of these
couples must be divorced. Yet such
is the state of fact.
The causes of divorce are described
in the revised statutes of this State
to be: 1st. "Another wife, or hus?
band, living." 2d. "Wilful absence
for three years." 3d. "Adultery."
4th. "Impotency," which is put
under the general head of iraud. 5th.
"Extreme cruelty," whici, v ith the
7th, "Gross neglect of duty," is put
under the same head. 8th. "Habi?
tual drunkenness," The divorces of
other States are likewise recognized,
which oftentimes give rise to frauds.
To divorce parties for "three years'
wilful absence," is, in many cases, to
legalize fraud. It may be stud that
neither the wife nor society are bene
? fitted by keeping a vicious or vaga?
bond husband. But if a husband or
wife-especially the former-chooses
to take that mode of divorce in this
immense extent of country and vari?
ous States, he oan do it any time. By
residing in any of four-fifths of the
American States for two or three
years, a divorce can be obtained on
thc part of the vagrant husband, at
the request of the husband or wife,
while the other party is, perhaps, la?
menting his absence, and uttorly in?
nocent of any oftonce.
J The statistics of tho County Court
are as follows: Adultery, 270; absence,
256; cruelty and neglect, 220; drunk?
enness, 55; fraud, 20.
I This statement, in one particular,
! fails of giving the true result. Ouly
! fifty-five cases are put down as caused
I directly by drunkenness; but that was
I thc true cause in double that number,
I because the trial of the cases in court
i shows that drunkenness has been a
main cause of cruelly and neglect.
It is a little curious that while thc
i crime of adultery is very difficult to
i prove, there should be no less than
286 cases of opeu adultery proved in
j court. It shows great abandonment
? of character on the part of some por
' tions of the community. It is not
. less curious that the majority of these
i are in Counties where there aro no
; vary large towns.

A lifo assurance ia nothing more or lea?
than an association of individuals, who
contribute a portion of their earnings to a
geueral fund, to be distributed at theil
deaths to their families or other depend?
ants on them, aa they may direct. Its ad?
vantages arc within the reach of all who
possess a fair degree of health, and tba
most ordinary means of support. The day
laborer, by appropriating but a small por?
tion of his earnings, may secure more for
his family thau ho might lay up otherwise
by years of toil. Ther? are few persons
who do not spend frivolously every year
more than would be required to keep their
lives insured for thousands of dollars.
