The interest manifested by the publio

tion to tmestion their correctness. As is
usual, however, in every case whoro thero
alarm in another, ana tno party 01 move
ment has its correlative in the party that
would obstinately stand still, or perversely
jo backward. Each party, furthermore,
has its extreme section : that of tho ono
rushing forward into tho wild fanatical
doctrines of free love; that of the other
holding to the idea that marriage is a con
tract of peculiar sanctity, entered into
under auspices especially divine, and in
every form of circumstances of perpet
If there exists any dogmatic rule di
vinely communicated to man, by which
the marriage bond was instituted, it has
hitherto eluded our research. Wo have
heard of "(Jod's holy ordinance," but
never yet seen it in print or in writing.
God mudo man and woman necessary to
each other, and marriage is the conse
quence. Having created the necessity,
no command was required ; if he had not
created the necessity, none would hnvc
been of any avail. Pressed by the wants
of their natures, men and women came
together upon such terms as were suit
able to their respective characters and re
quirements ; and out of tho custom grc
the first laws upon the subject, which
were simply the expressions of the com
mon' conception of tho rights and duties
of the parties.
Tho Roman Catholic Church, as one
of tho means to retain its hold upon the
consciences of its communicants, elevated
marriage into a sacrament; and, as a
necessary consequence, made it indissolu
ble : the effect of which is perceptible, to
si greater or less degree, in the collective
opinions and prejudices of all the l'rotost
ant sects. The Church of England, al
though denying the ghostly character of
tiits. relation, adheres to the idea of per
petual obligation ;' and the clergy of the
United Htutcp, by the religious ceremonies
with which they seek to accompany its
execution, suvo force to tho notion that
there is smmi'thing in tho nuptial con
tract cither in its character, or in the
maimer in which it is entered into that

ments-; anu gives it peculiar quality ol
permaaience and mdcfcasibility. It would

'MariTiiigo," says a standard English
writer upon National Eaw, ''is a contract
botweon man and a woman, in which,
by the2 mituul consent, each acquires
light on ti.j person of tho other, for tho
purposcr.'- of their mutual happincas and
the production and educationof children,
This contract, in obedience to tho require
ments of society, is usually entered intt,
with Homo forms of publicity; but this
by no moans necessary to its binding
character us to the parties. The con
siderations of tho contract are mutual
promises of assistance and support; and
so far as appears, tho rulo of reason
respect to its construction is in no wise
different from that which is applicable
other agreements. Thocustoms of society
and the consent of mankind, havo deter
mined tho nature of tho service which
each is bound to render tho other party;
nor does there seem to bo any hardship
impropriety in applying to this tho law
which is applicable to all other contracts,
that when either party willfully faila
perform his or her obligations, it is the
right oi' the other to put an end to tho
relation between them. It is a maxim
that would seem to require only to
stated in plain terms, to insure universal
assent, that no two human beings should
be forced, by the oporotion of incxorablo
lnw. to live in tho marital folation when,
to tho ono, that relation ii a source of
ceaseless misery through the X'.ccs or 111
conditions of the other. , 9pcietr.thnt
makes its elemonts miserable, fails to per
form the service forwhich ltwas instituted,
which was to mako them happy; and
while divorces should never bo decreed
for tridinc or transitory causes, or upon
hasty and ill-advised applications, tho fact
that thero is such an incompatibility be
tween the parties as, Sn the opinion of tho
judicious, renders mutual happiness im
possible, should ho sufficient ground for a
severance. To hold that a man may op
press ond tyrannize, year after year, be
cause his victim is tied to him by a con
tract in which ho promised to love and
cherish, if it were not one of tho saddest
things in tho world in view of tho cruel
tics of which it has been tho occasion
would Iks one of tho most ridiculous. To
Hold that a man may bo hag-ridden and
tortured, as nothing but a fiendish woman
ran do it. until his lifo is worn away, be
cause his tormentor onco promised to
honor nnd obey him, is just os senseless
ond indefensible- Society has no want
which gives ifii right to demand such
sacrifices, and the society that requires it
is at war with the happiness ot those oi
whom it is composed7.
"We have no invetcrtO feelings of ve
Bp'ect for those minor histor.'cal efforts in
which a certain class of our lhrory gen
tlemen arc so prono to indulge, .'vnl yet
we have looked over a Historical Sketch
of the Ohio State Library, by tho Libra
rian, Mr. Cocigkshau., which accompanies
tho thirteenth annual report of that in
stitution, with somo pleasures. The nu
cleus of tho library was, it appears, pur
chased by Gov. "Vor!Tins(iTON, in l17,out
of his official contingent fund, and O.i his
own responsibility, and afterward adoV'e(
by the State. Tho number of volumes
now in tho State Library is 18,000, of
which 2,570 aro in the law department.
The decree in the Di'iime case was not,
as has been stated, a divorco a mensa et
thoro such a legal condition not being
known to the laws of Ohio. It was simply
a decree of alimony under tho statute, by
forco of which tho petitioner was put in
possession of proporty originally her own
tho petition for divorco being dismissed
"without prejudice." The view taken of
tho case by Judge Dickson appears to
have satisfied everybody but the husband
and the editor of the "Enquirer."
The Tragedy at Washington.
Tho Capital City of the Union was startled
on Sunday by an occurrence of the most mel
ancholy character. Philip Bartok Krt, Esq.,
was shot by the Hon. Daniki, E. Sickles, mem
ber of Congress from the Third Distriot of Now
York, near the President's House, at tho south
cast comer of Washington vquarc, about two
o'clock in tho afternoon.
The facts of the case, tf the telegrsphio re
ports are Tellable, are simply these : Krv had
made himself agreeablo to Mrs. Sicklks, and
held meetings with hor clandestinely at the
house of hor husband, and afterward at n place
which he had procured for the purpose, in an
other part of the city. Apprised of the facts
by an anonymous latter, and confirmod by sub
sequent inquiry, Mr. Sicki.rs drew a confession
of tho fuct of his dishonor, and on two o'clock
of Sunday, finding Key in Lafayette square,
in conversation with a friend, shot him three
times with a revolver, the third ball passing
through the heart of his victim and instantly
terminating bis life. Publia sentiment will
hnrdly bold Mr. Sicki.rs amenable to a very
scvero punishment for his act, but time nnd his
own cooler jsdgment will, doubtless, inform
him that, even for himself, the transaction was
an unfortunate one.
Philip Barton Krv, the victim of the trn
gedy, was tho son of Fran-cms S. Krv, author
of the song of the Stnr-Spanglcd Banner, nnd
brother of Mrs. Uroror II. Prn-dlkton, of this
city. He was about forty-five years of ago, a
man of fine talents nnd chivalrous bearing, and
of unufually agreeable social qualities. He
was appointed to tho office of District Attorney
of the United States for tho District of Colum
bia a placo bolden by bis father for many
years by Mr. Polk. Out of office during the
administration of (Jen. Taylor, ho was ro
appointed by CJen. Pierck, and continued in
the discharge of its duties until his denth. He
