A CAST-OFF WIFE IN COURT.
Banished, and Declared Dead, yet
[From the New York Sun, New, 8.
A moat rcmArkablo case 6f alndonment
is soon to be tried io the Supreme Court of
this oily.. It involves a curious question
of law whether a woman who has lived
sixWn ycAfU as th wife of a (Spanish mer
chant U entitled to alimony after he has
deserted her. Tho facts in this matri
monial litigation embrace a bitter Accusa
tion of Infidelity, ft copfession extorted un
der pain of dittth, And tne pniincAiion oi
an account ot the burial oi tne nanisnea
woman. , On Saturilay night, Mr. Dnrand,
the merchant who is aeenscd of this aston
lulling catalogue of crime, was Arrested in
this city At the suit of Mary Dnrand, who
asserts that she is legallrhis wife, and that
he has deserted her. ShB is still yonng
and beautifnl. Mr. Dnrand la a commis
sion merchant, and hss an office at '21
Broadway. We lake tho wife's story from
her affidavit, as follows:
Mary Dnrand, A wife without the banns,
was born iu Franca, where her parents still
rcaide. Bb arrired In this city sixteen
years ago, nnd soon afterward bocame ac
nnnit.ted with Mr. Dnrand. Th acquain
tance ripened into love, and they lived to
gether as man and wifo without the cere
mony of marriage. Mary, however, often
reminded her consort ol his promin to
l.,,l l.rr in the lirnieiiial alter, and the
promise was as often repe atcd, bnt the ful
filment was postponed Indefinitely. Thoy
moved iu respectable soolety a Mr. and
Mrs. Dnrand, and not a breath of slander
was whispered. The nnmarricd onnple
hav hnd a family wf flreohildren, bnt only
one a boy of twelve years, survives, and
le is with bis I at ..or.
The couple li-ed in sumptuous style In A
mansion n town, and then again In handsome
Apartment t -III West Kixtecnth-st.
Mill nt 87 Clinton place. They had a haml
soma family of children, and they buried
them. Mm". Durand says that she has done
nothing unbecoming a wifo during the
twolva vrars ot her cohabitation with Da
rand, and she believes ulie is his lawful wife.
Iu July last Durand suddenly became angry
.,! ImIhiii nt bia stxiiui?. lie charued
that hhe had had improper lutiinacy with
mutual friend, who bad visited th house.
Ho accompanied Urn charge with threAts
personal injury, and viiemciiiiy proclaimed
that she was not bitt wife. Ono of th
children was then In Ncafphatel, Switzcr-
Karly In AtiptiHt last, tinrnnd announced
his decision. Ho told Mary that shi ronst
do to France, never to return to this coun
try. He further informed ber that the two
ciiuld not live in the same Und, and that
the Atlantic hhould separate them forever.
Durand threatened to kill her In ease Ah
should refuse to quit the country, And
added that bo would cast, ner npon tut
streets but for tho love ho bore her child,
Tho repudiated wife protested that she was
tnii-HM-nt, nut Dnrand wn determined.
.Then Durand demanded that the poor
woman should sign a paper confessing that
hho had been untrue to her duty toward
hiiu. but she refused, and emphatically du
ni til that she had ever boen guilty of
otfunce. Dnrand, however, Instated,
the ill it of July hist ho called on his wifo
87 Clinton place, nnd In the prcsenco
Miwt Kmilv Ward he repeated his demand
that she should sign a confession that
was virtually a harlot, On psm ol deain.
She still refusod, and he I- ft in a passion.
At 4 o clock on the next nmrung, wmio
the other Inmates of the house were sleep-
inor. he dragged Mary from her bed,
exhibiting a written paper, ordered her
si on it. Auaio she refused, and protested
her innocence, but he presented a revolver
and threatened to take her life If she would
not coinnlv with bia reuOfHt. Then, nnder
such compulsioa, she signed the paper,
cotifcMmd tn acta winch she never commit
ted. The husband noised the story
adultery abroad, and exhibited the proof
the paper she bad signed.
Ou the 7th of August Mrs. Durand
pursnanco of her sentence of banishment,
embarked on tho steamer Villo de Paris
France. Durand promisod to supply
with money, bnt lie Insisted that the
from him and tha child should
final. Ho had previously circulated A
Iiort that shu'had gone tii Europe, for
lenefit of her health.
Mrs. Dnrand reached France in safety,
and told her story to bor indignant pareuni.
Hho hud scarcely pussed a mouth iu
new homo, when she received copies
tho Now Y'ork papers, of August 31, which
contained the following announcement
tho death columns'
"Diod at Geneva, at 10 A. M., Aug.
Mary, wife of J. Duruml."
Mrs. Dnrand says that her husband
wore a weed on bis hat la hor memory,
aud told the story of hor demise to all
acquaintances. After this he wrote letters
to tier parents, informing them that
was an abandoned woman, and
ber of shameful Crimea, Hs also
known the fact that Mary was not his
and that after having lived with her
many years he hud separated from her
When Mary's purents heard th tramped'
up story of her dishonor, their anger
no bounds. She coufessed that she
not Poland's mavried wifo. Hhe told
whole history to her mother. Durnnd
continued to send across th Atlantio
poisonous tale of her infidelity, and at
she was oungcd to ny irora ner pareutui
roof, and return to this city. In extreme
poverty, without influential friends,
avers that Dnrund has boasted that he
drive her, by tli exhibition of tbeextorted
confoHsion of her imaginary guilt, to ft
of prostitution. '
Mury adds in her afidt'vit that Dnrand
reported to bo worth ttt least t'JO.OUt),
that ha does not hold th money iu
own name. Ho arrived iu this city
years ago from New Granada, Konth
ica. The order for his arrest was granted
by Judge Johs, and his bail was fixed
$20,000. He is tn the cotinly jail. Mr.
I). McCarthy is Mary's counsel, and Messrs.
Brown, Hall unrterpooj have been
