Then tir, while we have been a bmall part in this great national demonstration, we feel that universal i timent of your countrymen and a nation as broad as the continent and contin uous as, day, compel the conviction that our words of welcome bear no spice of affectation, and fall far short of the truth. And now, sir, la the name and in behalf of all these good citizens, I gieet jou and welcome yon home to a home as wide as the Union jou saved, and as warm as patriotic hearts can make it. At the clo'p ot the address of Judge Agnew there was loud and continued applause, and when it had snb ided Gen. Grant said: "Mr. Chief Justice, ladies and gentlemen: It is a somce of deep giatitication to me that my course has bceu approved. It is a somewhat agreeable fa that during the years of my ab sence I have not known a day's sickness, al though I have been in every lattitude. It is aUo a sourse of gratifacation and acknowledg ment that an invisible power protected me in my journey. It is, moreoves, a source of grat ification that the countries abroad are ac quainted with the history, resources and grand areas of this country. It re requires but little observation of Ameri cana abroad to fully appreciate our country. In contrasting our country with others, the ease with which a poor man can obtain a live lihood is apparent Oar country is largely in favor of a pool mau acquiring a home. In comparison with the European nations there is a soil and extent of territory capable of ac commodating 500,000,000 people without crowd ing. This is a Bource of great gratification and should make our people more patriotic and love their country better. In all this there is one regret, and that is that I can't properly reply to the flattering and able address of the chief justice. I would bs much better satisfied if I could reply in the manner in which it was de livered. Ladies and gentlemen and Mr. Chief Justice, 1 thank you for what has been said and what I see. THE BAJ,QUET. The banquet tendered to Gen. Grant to night at the ManogahelahouHe,by the citizens of Pittsburgh, rt as one of the most brilliant and auccesf ul social events in the history of Pitts burgh. There were covers laid for two hundred guests. The assembly was composed ot our most prominent citizens, representatives of the bar,minmtij and our commercial interests, irrespective oi party affiliations. The banquet hall was elaborately decorated with flowers, evergreen, banners, etc. The proceedings were opened abmit eiirht o'clock, and after discus sing the viands for about an hour, the speech making begr Mr. John C. Uicket=on, a merchant, presided and led off with an eloquent speech, touching upon the salient features of Gen. Grant's ca reer as a soldier, civilian and traveler. The al lusions to his victories, to a modest bearing, to a possible still more glorious future for the distinguished uelit i was received with marked enthusiasm. The regular older of toasts was then taken np. W. D. Moio, Esq a leadm? Democrat and the toast master, in course of a brief speech prefatory to the toa=t "Our Guest," ave an interesting account of the per sonal happenings in vicinity of I'ort Gibson, when Gen. Grant was & command at that point during the late war,in which be refeired to the kind manner in which Gen. Grant had treated him and his family, in sending them north. He (the speaker) said he was surmised at the time that GeD. Grant should so willingly send an able-bodied man north, instead of holding him as a prisoner. Mr. Moro at that time was a minister of tne Gospel, preaching in that vu-inity. Mr. More's allusion to these incidents of personal intercoune with Gfc. Grant, were received without burBts of applause,and merriment. At the conclusion General Grant was called upon to respond, and when he arose to his feet he was received with great cheering, which lasted fully five minutes. When quiet had been restored he spoke as follows: Mr. President and Gentlemen: This beino Saturday night it is hardly legitimate to keep open longer than midnight. In reference to the Sabbath I find on looking over the toasts that the speeches must be confined to an aver age of about seven minutes if we are to get through in time. We have had two speeches already, occuyying thirteen and a half min utes, so that gives me just abont a half a min ute yet (great laughter.) My powers of speech making never were very good, bat my knowl edge of mathematics waa rather perfect. Now I have figured this down to a nicety, (great laughter) and the more time I can spend in this way the less I will have to say about other things. In making his speech, the Vice President has pleasantly alluded to the fact that I sent him an able-bodied man from, the South up North. Well, I was down there just for that purpose. Great laughtor and cheers. We were alwajs glad to get able-bodied men who were in the South at that time up North, [laughter] and if we couldn't get them up any othei way we sent them up under gard, and were willing to furnish rations to them, but we were always glad to get able bodied men who would support themselves, and not require good, able-bodied soldiers to guaid them. (Laughter.) I want ed to get him North, for I knew he would stay North if wo once got him there, and never take up arms againtt ns. (Cheers.) Mr. President, hasn't my time expired?" "No, sn on have one-quarter of a minute," the presiding officer replied. Gen. Grant then held no a half of a smoked cigar and said: "1 assure you I will finish be fore this cigar goes out. (Cheers.) Allow me to thank j'ou for your kind expressions. I am glad that you called upon me so early in the evening, for now I can sit here and see ou all enjoy yourselves." Appronriate toasts and responses were made bj- prominent citizen-i, among the number Judge Agnew, Kirkpatriek, Collins and others, and the festivities concluded at midnight with three rousmg cheers for Gen. Grant. The dis tinguished guest will remain here until Sunday night when he leaves for Harrisburg. Mrs. Grant had a reception at the residence of Mrs. Judge Stow, where she leceived calls from the wives and daughters of our leading citizens. THE GLOBE HOROSCOPE.

The Haddleston divorca business appears at the front aain. This time it is in the ,shapa of an application by Mr. Haddleston for the custody of the children, and he files the following affidavit: Thomas R. Huddleaton, the defendant in the above entitled action, came before me this day, and having been first duly sworn, did depose as follows: The plaintiff, Helen M. HnddleBton, and myself were married at Buffalo, New York, on August 17, 1870. From January 23, 1863, I had been a widower, my first wife, Julia M. Huddleston, having died on the latter-men tioned day, leaving our two children, Minnie Dunbar and Lyman Gert, then aged respec tively 6 and 3 years. At the time of my second marriage I resided at Hastings and soon after that event I re turned thither with the plaintiff, and we resid ed there until sometime in the year 1873, when we removed to St. Paul. A few months prior to our marriage, and in contemplation thereof, I purchased a house and lot in Hastings, for our residence, and had the same extensively altered and refitted, at a total cost of about $4,b00. The greater part of the articles used in fur nishing the same were purchased, about the time of my marriage, at Buffalo, New York, and Detroit, Michigan. Most of such pur chases E'were gmade with the assistance of the plaintiff's advice, and, in making the same, I deferred, as far as means permitted, to the tastes and inclinations of my wife, which were usually very extravagant. The furnish ing of the house cost about $1,500, and we had one of the most comfortable homes in the neighborhood where we lived. I also bought, about the time of my marriage, a horse and buggy ior the use of my wife and the family bnt my wife was always greatly dissatisfied with the buggy, ap parently thinking a mere buggy not stylish enough for her use and I then bought a family carriage. Shortly before our marriage 1 pre sented the plaintiff with a diamond ung, which was worth the sum of $250 and at the time of our marriage I presented her with a watch set with diamonds and a chain, which were worth $150. My wife contributed to our establishment nothing save some silverware, which had formed part of the weddiug gifts, some bedding and some linen. About a year afterwards she purchased with her own money china to the amount of about $100. In the year 18731 collected, with great difficuly, from the plaintiff's brother, the sum of two thousand dollars, part of a debt owing by her brother to herself, and invested the same in our residence in Saint Paul. The plaintiff had also a small income, derived from the indebtedness due her from her brother for two or three years after our mar riage but the whole thereof was expended by herself for her individual purposes, and very little, if any of it, went to diminish the de fendant's family expenses, save as I have just stated. My wife has never contributed any money or any article for the comfort and support of the family, but all the family ex penses, including the wearing apparel and or naments procured for my wife's use since our marriage, except some trifling presents from her friends, have been paid by myself. On Christmas, 1870,1 presented the plaintiff with a handsome set of coral jewelry, and some silver plated ware. In tho year 1872, about the holidays, I pre sented her with a heavy set of gold ear rings, and also a handsome set of Dicken's works. In the year 1873 I presented the plaintiff with a heavy and handsome gold chain and locket, worth about $125. During that time the deponent also present ed the plaintiff with several handsome articles, including a gold Fcarf ring set with a diamond star. For some time prior to my marriage with the plaintiff, I had been engaged in the practice of the law at Hastings, and had en joyed an extensive and lucrative professional business in addition to various profitable in vestments, and during eight years of that pe riod, I had held the office of county attorney of Dakota county. But, notwithstanding these facts, the plain tiff soon acquired a great dislike,tor the city of Hastings, and for the people thereof although without any cause or excuse for she had uni formly been treated with kindness and consid eration by the best people of the town. To such an extent did plaintiff's dislike of and contempt for the people of Hastings pro ceed, that in a conversation between her and myself, tonching the relative merits of the people of Hastings, and those of Buffalo, N. Y., where she had lived for a short period, in response to an expression of myself of a favor able opinion of the people of the former town, she declared that she would not wipe her feet on the Hasting's people and this although she was affable to the people of that place, while in their presence. In consequence of such dislikes conceived toward said town and the people thereof, the plaintiff, in the year 1872, began to importune me to remove from Hastings to some larger place. She said Hastings was no place for her self or myself. I told her that it was a great risk for a pro fessional man to take leave of a good practice for an uncertainty. She told me that if I would go to St. Paul, she would get her money from her brother and buv a house in St. Paul, to assist me in the start that she didn't want to have her money invested in Hastings. The moneys referred to were her share of her de ceased father's estate. The amount of the same, I tried to ascertain about a year atter our marriage but was un able to ascertain the same with any degree of accuracy, nor whether the same was secured or not nor did she appear to know herself. She said when she had wanted money she asked her brother for money and got it and he was reluctant to tell me much about it. I said that she onght to know the amount of her money and how it was secured, for the child's sake as well as her own. I told her that since our marriage it had cost me a great deal for our house and furniture and living, and expenses of travel, etc. That we had lived beyond mj income. That if I went to St. Paul her buying a house would help me a great deal, because I did not expect to suc ceed at once and I should lose considerable by selling my property at Hastings. That some capital would be needed to make a respectable appearance in St. Paul. I yield ed to her repeated importunities and promises and being soon afterwards offered twenty seven hundred dollars for my residence anl thiee lots which had cost me, but two or three years before, about 4,800 dol ars, I sold it and gave possession April lst,1873. My wife and I came to St. Paul to look for a house for her to purchase. I askad her if I made a contract for purchace, whether she was sure that she could get her m*ney because if I did buy and she could not get it, my busi ness standing in St. Paul would be much hurt by fan re to fulfill my agreement. She said 6ne couh. --et the money at any time. 1 finally told her tv ''.she and the children had better go East and, with her friends, and that I would close op my business at Hastings and go to St. Paul and look around before buying, in order to become better acquainted, wirh loca tions, prices, etc. She then went East, taking all the children with her. I moved to Si. Paul on May 1st, 1873, and opened a law office. I bought a lot for 2,500 dollars, which I paid for wholly with my own funds. She wrote me that her brother, Mil ford Hammer, into whose hands the money be fore mentioned, coming from her father's es tate, had gone, could not pay her and she ST. PAUL, SUNDAY MORNUSTG, DECEMBER 14. seemed wholly indifferent as to whether he paid it or not. In August following I went to Buffalo to visit my wife. She treated me quite coldly on my arrival. She was quite indifferent whether we had a house or not, or whether I succeeded in St. Paul or not. I told her my distress at the turn which things had taken in respect to the purchase of a home in St. Paul. I remind ed her of her promises made to me on my re moval from Hastings, and the sale of my property there, that she would herself buy a home in St. Paul, and stated to her that I had relied on those promises as an inducement for making the change. But she denied every thing, and told me that she never agreed to anything of the kind. I was greatly hurt by this exhibition of bad faith on my wife's part, but I had to extricate myself torn the finan cial embarrassments iu which it necessarily put me, in the best way I could. I was sorely troubled in mind about our financial future, and so expressed myself to my wife but hhe seemed entirely indifferent about our pros pects, as well as about my distress. I saw her biolher Milford about her money. He was as indifferent about the matter as she and would give me no information as to how much be owed her, o- when he would pay. Af tei a few days I saw him again, to get his final an swer and he at last told me that he would pay in the fall of that year. I then leit at once for Minnesota. On my return I had plans drawn and cen tracts let. When the house was about half completed the Jay Cooke failure took place. My wife's brother wrote me that he should not be able to pay. I wrote and telegraphed him from time to time that \e must pay, for I had obligations to meet. Fearing that he would not pay, I sold a large quantity of land and other property at half its value to enable me to fulfill my engagements with the contractors on my house. Milford Harmon sent me one thousand dollars in No vember, 1873. I insisted that he must send me more as soon as possible. He finally sent me $1,000 more a day or two befor^ Christ mas, 1873. The moneys so sent me by Milford Harmon were used in building my homestead in this city. Harmon never paid over any more of my wife's money to my knowledge, and about four or five months afterwards be came bankrupt, owing over sixty thousand dol lars and having only nominal assets. He still owes my wife $4,400 and inteiest, as my wife made oath in the bankruptcy proceedings, $2,400 of which had been loaned to him since our marriage, as appeared fiom a statement in his own handwtiting, forwarded to my wife to use in making proof of her claim against him. The remaining portion of the $4,400 was the balance due on a promissory note given prior to our marriage. To the best of my knowledge my wife has never received a cent of the balance due to her from her brother, nor has she made any effort whatever to collect the same or to have him pay any part thereof, although for several years last pat she has informed me he was doing well at Jackson, Michigan, in the employment of a concern engaged in the manufacture of mill machinery. I have tried repeatedly to induce the plaintiff to procure from her brother his promissory note, or some other evidence of the existence of her claim against him, saying to her that for the childrens' sake, if not for her own, she ought to take some steps to secure a settlement of this claim, or to preserve some evidence of its existence at the very least but she has never paid any attention to my advice in regard to the matter, and has always failed to give me any definite information concerning the claim, and has never appeared to care whether any part of it were collected or not. But she has, on several occasions, told me in a general way that her brother would give a new note at any time that the claim was perfectly safe, and that this matter was none of my business. She always seemed to be displeased because I had succeeded in collecting the $2,000 afore said. She further told me that if the first sum of $1,000 had not been sent to St. Paul when it was sent that she would never have returned to this city, but would have remained in New York, where she was then visiting. Our house was completed in December ot that year and we moved into it in the Month of January, 1874. The house and lot, with some improvements made upon the house since the completion, have cost me over eight thousand dollars. As the result of my sacrifice of my property at Hastings, and of sacrifices made subse quently, to enable me to meet my engage ments incurred in building our house, my to tal assets were diminished to the extent of several thousand dollars, and I was left wholly without any productive property, and entirely dependent for the support of mycelf and fam ily upon what remaining capital I had, and upon my professional earnings in a new locali ty. But notwithstanding these facts my house hold expenses largely increased, the greater proportion of which I was compelled to pay from my capital, so that by the year 1877 my estate had become very much reduced below the value at which it stood when I left Hast ings. But in April, 1877, Martin L. Vebber, a great friend of mine, as well as a client of mine, and a wealthy man, died at Utica N. Y., and bequeathed to me two pieces ot real estate in the city of St. Paul, and $10,000 in money, as a result of which I was put in a somewhat bet ter financial condition than I was when I left Hastings. During the last two years my house hold expenses have exceeded my professional income, and I have been compelled to draw upon my capital as the chief means of meeting the deficiency. At Christmas, 1677,1 presented my wife with a pair of elegant and expensive ear rings and in the year 1878, when I visited my relatives in England, whom 1 had not seen for many years, and some of whom, particulary my mother, were greatly advanced in age, and whom I never expected to see again. While I was absent in Europe my wife sent to me measurements for eostly wearing apparel, Buch as silk dresses, etc. I purchased the material for the same and had them made in London. I also purchased at the same time for my wife a long seal skin 6acque and muff of the same material, and a quantity of French flowers and other articles. The total expenses of this trip to Europe were $1,034 for wearing apparel and personal ornaments for my wife and children. During the entire period which has elapsed since our marriage my wife has been supplied with a sufficiency of stylish, comfortable and expensive wearing apparel, at my expense. From the time when my present wife and myself commenced housekeeping until the year 1877, we have habitually employed at least one domestic servant, and, since that date, we have habitually employed two also, during periods of my wife's confinement, we have employed in addition thereto professional nurses. Besides this my daughter Minnie, now 22 years of age, my son Gent, now 19 years of age, have constantly lived in our familj', and sundry relatives of my wife have made us fre quent and protracted visits. Our household has been uniformly supplied with a sufficiency of food and all other articles necessary for the comfort of ourselves and our family. In the last few years our household has con sisted of nine persons, besides occasional visit ors. From almost the beginning of our married life, with intervals very few and very short, the plaintiff has treated me coldly, exhibiting very slight affection or regard for me. For the first few years I hoped that I might yet gain her affection, but for the last three years I have felt that she had no love and re gard for me, and have borne her ill-treatment, insults and annoyances as best I could for the sake of our children and the avoidance of scandal. Prior to our marriage my wife and myself had met each other only a few times, and were really very little acquainted with each other when our marriage occurred. Although the plaintiffs coldness of demeanor toward me, and her lack of interest in my comfort and welfare apparently increased in spite of all my efforts to conciliate her, no marked difference occurred between ns until some time in August, 1871, about five weeks after the birth of our first child, Harmon. At that time the plaintiff's sister, Mrs. Frank Welsh, of Medina, N. Y., was paying ns a lengthy visit. One day my son Gent and my self intended to go into the country to shoot game. The family then consisted of the plaintiff, who had wholly recovered from the sickness of her confinement, myself and my son Gent, then abont 11 years my daughter Minnie, then aged about 14 years, and my in fant son Harmoa. Shortly prior to the particu lar day referred to, Mrs. Giles, of Northfield, a professional nurse, who had attended my wife during her confinement, and until her com plete recovery thereafter, had left us. Our only domestic servant had left us the day be- fore,![8o that wejwere temporarily without any hired help. Our dinner hour was 6 o'clock p. M. At about 2 o'clock in the afternoon my eon and I were ready to start on our hunting excursion, and had requested that some lunch be prepared for us. Our usual lunch time was 1 o'c'ock P. M. We waited for lunch until about 3 o'clock, at which time none had yet been prepared, nor were there any signs, that this defendant knew of, that any lunch would be prepared, or that any preparations were making therefor, aud we started off with out any, and called on our way out at a hotel and procured some ciackers. We re turned at about 7 o'clock that evening, and found her sister, Mrs. Welsh, sitting outside the house on the front porch. I went into the house and into the dining room, and there were no signs of any dinner having been pre pared or saved for ua. The dinner dishes, seemingly, were all cleared away. I waited some time to see if any ot them would get ns something to eat, and no one came. They still remained ou the porch. I spoke out loud enough for them to hear me, and said, "Are we not going to have something to eat?" when Mrs. Welsh come irom the porch into the hall near the dining room door* where I was stand ing, and answered me by saying, "JNellie," meaning my wife, "didn't come out here to work." I replied that "I didn't want her to work unnecessarily, but we were hungry and wanted something to eat," and then I said to her, "What have you got to do with my wife, or what business is it of yours? You are a guest here, and I don't want you to interfere or be impertinent, and if you don't like my style you had better leave''and 16h ut the dining room door between her and myself. She then came around by another door and was quite imperti nent to me. I had no words with my wife. There was nothing that I knew of or saw that was kept in the oven or elsewhere for ns to ea.%. What we got to eat that night, if any thing, I do not now distinctly remember, but it was of no great impoitance. My wife, without my having any words with her, de serted my bed and slept with her sister that night. She came down stairs in the morning and told me that her sister was going down town to get her breakfast, and that unless I apologized to her sister, that both she and her sister would leave that day and go to Buffalo, N. Y. I went up stairs and saw that they had already commenced to pack Up their clothes and had got out a good many of my wife's things preparatory thereto. Fearing exposure and scandal, and believing that my wife had been badly advised by her sister and would, in her anger, in order to re sent a supposed insult to her sister, leave me, I was foolish enough to apologize to her sister, and she did not go away from my house to get her breakfast, and all seemed pleasant again for the time being but my wife's sister pre vailed upon my wife, a few days afterwards, to insist upon going to Buffalo, and she was de termined to go without my consent. Seeing that I could not restrain her from so doing, for appearance sake, and not wishing to make a scene, I made no further objection, and they went, and by appointment their brother-in-law, Oscar Folsom, met them in Chicago and took them to Buffalo, as my wife afterwards in formed me. My wife wrote to me about a week or ten days after this a cold letter, in which she said in substance that she supposed I would like to hear from the child, if not from her, and signed herself, "Your unworthy wife." Her departure broke up our housekeeping, and my self and Minnie and Genty, my children by a former wife, who were left behind, were com pelled to go out to board. My wife remained absent from home about two months, when I went after her and brought her back. It is not true, as alleged in the reply herein, that on any occasion about four months before our daughter Mary was born, or at any other time while plaintiff was in bed with me, I scolded, threatened and abused her to such an extent that she attempted to get out of my bed and to leave the room nor is it true that I on any occasion caught her and locked her in the room, where she spent the remainder of the nighu on the floor, or that my wife ever spent the night, or any part thereof, on the floor of any room, on account of any action on my part nor is it true that the arms of the plaintiff were ever black and blue from injuries received at my hands on any such occasion as alleged in said plaintiff's reply. About tho month of July, A. D. 1876, my wife's sister, Mrs. Emma Folsom, and her daughter came out to visit ua. On her arrival, my wife', without any cause for so doing, de serted my bed and went to sleep with ber sister. I did not particularly resent this action at first, thinking that it would continue only a few nights. After several weeks repe tition of the same thing, I remonstrated with her about leaving my bed, but she paid no at tention to it and I also on the night referred to in the complaint as being in August, 1876, as my wife was about retiring to her sister's bed I again spoke to her about it, and also spoke so loud that her sister could hear me, and said it was not right that her sister should come to my house as my guest and take my wife from my bed and soon after I retired my wife came from her sister's bed to mine. She laid down on the edge of the bed most distant from me and turned her back to me. I asked her what I had done to deserve such treatment, and I attempted to put my arm around her in an af fectionate manner. She said, "Let me alone. I want to go to sleep." I said to her, "Isn't it the truth that you desire to sleep with your sister, and not with me?" She replied "Yes," and I said "Go then," at the same time giving her a push with my foot. The bed was a very low one, being only fourteen inches from the floor, and my wife could not have fallen there from so violently as to have caused her any particular injury. She arose from the floor, calling out for her Bister and othns, apparently with the design of arousing the whole household and creating a scene. I arose from the bed and she rushed at me several times in great anger and struck me, at the same time calling me names, such as "villain," "brute," etc. When she rushed at me I seized her by both arms for the sole purpose of protecting myself, and not with the intention of injuring her in the least. She still continued to struggle and tore herself loose from my grasp two or three times at about this time her sister, and I think my daughter Minnie, rushed into the room when I threw her on the bed, and es caped from her. I told her then, that she had struck me and that as it had now come to violence she should leave the house that night. Mrs. Folsom replied that Nellie would go in the morning. I said, again, that she should go that night when Mrs. Folsom replied as before, and both left the room. I took some dresse3 which my wife had hanging in the closet of my sleep ing room, and threw them out in the hall. The foregoing is all that occurred between myself and wife that night. It is not true that after I pushed my wife out of bed, I thrust her on the iloor nor that I commenced pounding her nor that I in any manner struck her nor is it true that on the night before said occasion I had been fretting and scolding her till after mid night nor that she was agitated and wearied by my said conduct, and begged me to allow her to go to sleep she did not sleep with me the night before the said occurrence but slept with her sister, as before stated nor is it true that she was ereatly injured by me on that oc casion: nor is it true that, on account of the same, she was confined to her couch some three days. On the evening of the next day soon after dinner 1 went to the bed-room occupied by her sister and found her there. She was lying on a sofa. I went up to her, and in a loving way asked her how it was that she had made so much trouble and exposed our differences to the servant. (Our servant had left that morn ing). She said Bhe was going to Buffalo with hei sister and they would keep house there and she said her sister had housekeeping things enough to keep house, and asked if she could have the carpets in the parlor and library. I asked her what she intended doing, or how she expected to support herself. She replied that a nsin of hers living at Lancaster, near Buffalo, N. Y. had got a place as a clerk in a store, and she thonght that she could get such a place. I told her it was ridiculous to think that she could take care of the children (as she wanted to take them, with her) in a proper manner while earning her living as clerk in a store and I said to her that I never would consent while my wife that Bhe should do anything of the kind, and I told her I had no intention of being unkind to her, and that her actions to ward me in leaving my bed and then on com- g#r ing to it and treating me as she did provoked me so that I pushed her out of bed. She had gotten over her passion and put her head on my shoulder and 1 caressed her, and she came to my bed and allowed me favors, and I gave her ten dollars, and the next day she was around again as usual and appeared entirely reconciled. Nothing more was said by her about going to Buffalo, or securing a clerkship, nor about her leaving me. How ever, she still continued to sleep with bier sis ter, during her sister's stay, which lasted a month or more afterwards. After Mrs. Folsom's departure my wife may have slept with me a few nights, but she again left my bed without any cause, and from that time forward she has always neglected to sleep with me, except in a few instances dur ing the period of about a week or ten days af ter my return from England, in the year 1878. I had written before my return from England, to her, saying in substance that she must be more like a loving wife to me, and sleep with me, and we must live a better Christian lite, and se^a better example to our children. On my first return my wife appeared to ac cede to these requests for a few days, but she soon fell off into the old manner of treating me and again left my bed, going to sleep with my daughter Minnie. The affidavit continues at great length de tailing differences which arose owing to her re fusal to act the part of a wife. The "ale scene" is recapitulated in substantially the same manner as iu Mr. Huddleston's former affidavit, coupled with a denial that he knocked her down, or choked or kicked her. The affi. davit repeats at length the failure to provide a suitable meal, which led to the quarrel where he pulled her false hair. Tne tidy or fancy work which he cut up immediately after this quar rel was what he supposed had occupied the time of his wife and daughter, and prevented their getting the meal during the absence of the servant, and being irritated by his wife's conduct he destroyed it. When he learned it was a wedding present his daughter was making he greatly regretted the act and gave her money to replace it.] ACCUSED OF INFIDELITY. In regard to the time when Mrs. Huddleston alleges that he choked her, Mr. Huddleston avers that owing to a number of suspicious cir cumstances he had grown suspicious of his wife's fidelity. These were partly increased by her treatment of him. He says: For the rest, it consisted of certain matters which cannot be related without mentioning the name of a man, who may be, and I hope is, entirely innocent of any wrong toward me, and, therefore, whose name I do not now wish to divulge, which wish I am supported by the advice of my counsel. He says he tild his wife it she would explain the suspicious circumstances and swear that she was innocent, he would accept her denial, but she refused to either deny or explain, and he became much excited, both of them talking loudly, but he did not choke or strike her. The next day she appeared very much changed and teas more affectionate than she had been for a long time, and his suspicions were quieted. Some time in the month of October Mr. Huddleston called with his wife upon a distinguished gentleman at a St. Paul hotel, and while there the person whom he suspected came into their presence and acted very familiar towards his wife. It was this fact which led him the next day to say to her in substance: "You know what I suspect you of, and if I could get positive proof of it I would throw you over that fence, and if there is a hell, when you die I believe the bottom place will be re served for you." BREAKING THE DISHES. The affidavit continues as follows: I admit that, in the summer of 1S79,1 on one oc casion pushed over the dining room table, and caused tho contents of the same to fall upon the floor. I had gone home from business that day, in the evening, perhaps a little later than usual, for I had been detained by business engagements I entered the dining room, and found no person there. The table had upon it nothing but the dirty plates of the restof the family, who had eaten before me, and the bone of a ham, from which the meat had been almost entirely removed. I thought that my wife had takenthis means to annoy and Insult me, and it angered me. In the heat of the moment, I purposely pushed over the table and let the dishes fall upon the floor. The table and dishes were my own, and I bave always considered that I might break my own dishes if I chose without giving any body elseground for complaint. A BOX.AHI) TOB HEB OLIVER OK THE DBINKINQ QUESTION. It is not true that since I have been married to the plaintiff I have been in the habit of drinking intoxi cating beverages te excess. I have always used beer, ale, and liquor, and occasionally wines, but ex cept very rare instances with great moderation but have very rarely been intoxicated Since the plaintiff and myselt have been married I have gener ally kept ale or beer in the cellar, and a decanter of whisky or brandy on the sideboard but the plaintiff has never, to my recollection, objected to my use of such beverages. On the contrary, ever since our marriage, the plain tiff has been in the habit of using ale, beer, wine and liquor herself, and sometimes to tho extent of pro ducing drunkenness. Tne second or third time I ever met the plaintiff, she was at a beer garden in Buffalo, New York, drinking beer. Shortly after our marriage, on our journey to this State, while temporarily stopping in Michigan, my wife drank whisky to such an extent that she became very much intoxicated, and acted in a very wild manner iu the night, BO that I was compelled to go for a physician. A day or two afterward she drank champagne at the hotel table in Detroit to such a degree of excess that she became purple in the faee. Tor several years, during the winter season, both at Hastings and at St. Paul, the plaintiff was in the habit of drinking a lot of whisky toddy nearly every evening before retiring. For the past two or three years she has not been in the habit of drinking so much whisky as formerly, but has drank more ale or beer. Often upon our return together from claces of entertainment, we have stopped on th way home, at her request, in front of some saloon, to procure beer for her on which occasions I would enter the saloon, leaving her outside, and bring the beer to her, which she would drink. Frequently, at home, when the supply of beer or a'e would be temporarily exhtusted, at her request, myself or Gent would go to some neighbor ng grocery or saloon and get beer for her. HIS ENTERTAINMENTS. He denies the charge that he was in the habit of bringing friends to his house and indnlging in excessive drinking and unseemly conduct. He enumerates a number of entertainments, chiefly gentlemen's card parties, given at his house, naming the persons present, the names including prominent military, professional and business men in this city and State, and also residents of the East. These are given in evi dence of the reputable character of the enter tainments. MISCELLANEOUS. He clai that when he spent his evenings at home his wife afforded him no society or amesensent, and he passed his time alone in his library. He also al leges that his wife did not admit him to any of her confidences that she kept her correspondence very exclusive, and instructed the postman to deliver her letters to her alone, not allowing him to know who her correspondents wire. He also claims that he has always exercised a proper fatherly care for the chddreu, while hi3 wife takes no pans or trouble with them, aud since the separation does not send them to school. OTHEB AFFIDAVITS.

Invitations are out for the annual banquet under the auspices of the Northwestern Travel ing Men's association, to be given at Chicago on the 30th inst. The case of Frank Heilman and Charles Miller, charged with assault and battery on Andrew Bohliue, at Stahlman's brewery, two weeks ago, was called at the municipal court, yesteiday morning. The defendants were dis charged, owing to the absence of the complain ant. Yesterday Joseph Trotrocheau's case before United States Commissioner Cardozo: was con tinued until to-morrow. Defendant was un willing to go to trial oa the charge of selling whisky to Indians, until an interpreter could be found who could make Indian jargon into intelligible English. The following order by Judge Simons was filed in the office of the district court yester day: Ordered!, That hereafter special terms for the hearing and determination of all matters that may be brought before the court, except the trial of issues of fact, be held on Saturday of each week at 10 o'clock. James Powers, who has a habit of taking everything he can lay his hands on, wa3 fonnd prowling around the streets on Friday night, and run in by the police on general principles. Yesterday morning he was arraigned before Judge Flint for vagrancy, but on promising to leave the city, was discharged. Last night Larkin, the Sixth street shoemak er, got hold of a brass-mounted musket as old as the Revolutionary war, and proceeding to charge himself with whisky began to give hia family an extraordinary drill in discipline. His lamily objecting to such a revolution, Offi cer De Corsey was called in, and he escorted Larkin to the lock-up. Workmen were engaged yesterday in fitting up a part of the Morton & Wharton building to be occupied by the Northwestern Poultry as sociation for their exhibition, which com mences to-morrow and continues one week. A number of fowls are already in the building, and the exhibition will be one of the finest of the kind ever seen in the Northwest. The ladies connected with the First Baptist church are holding a fair in the Morton & Wharton building, on We3t Third street. In conjunction with the fair a dinner will be served up each day from 12 to 2 o'clock, com mencing to-morrow, which business men are invited to patronize. The funds realized will go toward buying books for the Sunday school library. A young man named Cornelius Cashman, who has furnished the police with plenty of work for the last year, is again wanted, this time for stealing an ulster. Cashman visited a dance at the Dayton farm, a short distance from, the city, Friday night, and during the evening made off with a coat valued at $12, belonging to a young man named efer. Cashman, it is thought, has left the city. Marshal Shortall, of Stillwater, was in the city on a secret mission, yesterday, which is given away entirely nnder the head of Still water news. When approached regarding his errand, ho was as mysterious as a dime novel detective, but for all that his business was learned, and is not repeated here, because given as noted elsewhere. The dime novel de tective didn't find his man. The Capehart-Kennedy imbroglio came to the front again yesterday nnder new and unique auspices. An action was commenced in the district court by A. R. Capehart against Mathew Craig, John Olarkin, William Fraher and W. P. Murray for damages of $1,500 each, alleged to have,been caused by th "mowing bee" of October 5, to which the plaintiff claims that the defeudents were the prime in stigators. A small boy named Willie Ashton was at police headquarters with a grievous look on his face, and an ugly wound on his arm. Both had been given him, so he said, while he was just doing nothing at all, by a dog on Robert street belonging to a Pole named Makosky. His countenance was smoothed out and balm poured upon his wound by the promise that the dog should be looked after over the sights of a trusty revolver. It's decidedly likely, though the military folk are not a committee, that the proceedings in Reno'B court martial have reached Gen. Terry's headquarters, and it is said that it's "six to half a dozen" whether they go beyond the headquarters in St. Paul. If they don't, Reno isn't dismissed, or if dismissed, the sen tence is not approved by Gen. Terry, but this latter contingency isn't likely. If there's much delay about the'promulgatlon of the order it's fair to infer that Reno has been dismissed, subject to the approval of President Hayes. From the above the reader is free to infer what he pleases. The mass meeting at the Opera House, next Thursday evening, to sympathize with the Irish people in their present troubles, prom ises to be fully in|keeping with similar dem onstrations being held throughout the coun try. His Honor Mayor Dawson will preside, assisted by a number of our most prominent citizens. The clergy of all denominations and leading officials have been invited. Several of our most talented speakers have espoused the cause of suffering Ireland, and it is believed that the Opera House, Thursday night, will witness such a gathering as it never saw be fore. The committee having the arrangements in charge is working hard, and the full pro gramme will appear Tuesday morning. PERSONAL. H. Burbank, Chicago, is at the Clarendon. A.
