SINGULAR CASK I>F DkF I MOTION.? In the Cons-story
Court, Bristol, on the 21-<t ult., the Worshiptul
loseph Phtllimore, l) C. L , Chancellor of Bristol,
h case ol detain ition, Payne v Rowley, was brought
on, the |>ldintitl' praying lor judgment against the defendant.
Mr. Hahtt.ry stated that this was u suit brought
by Mrs. Prudence Payne against Mrs. Ann Rowley,
the wile ol Mr. Thomas Rowley, straw-hat nitiioilacturer,
of College green, anil he prayed the sentence
ol the Court that Mrs. Rowley tnav be condemned
in costs, and 10 do penance, for having defamed
the character of his client. The facts were,
that an acquaintance had subsisted for some years
between Mrs. Pavne and the family of Mr. Rowley;
and in the year 1841, Mrs. Rowley had suid, in the
presence of credible witnesses, that Mrs. Payne had
been lorthe last two months cohabiting with the defendant's
husband. To this a responsive or defen
sive allegation, as we understood, had been put in,
as he conceived irrcgularl, together with exhibits
thereto, being certain leiters; and the allegation
s'ated, that Mrs. Rowley did not use the word cohabit,
butsaid an im"roper correspondence had been
going on,and that Mrs. Rowley had spoke undergreat
excitement. The facts was, however, that ihe utter
ing of the words had been clearly proved, and he
now prayed the sentence of the Court upon Mrs
lie > w Ir v.
Mr. Bridges, fur the defendant, staled that this
was an extremely hard case. His client, coming
into possession of certain letters which he would
presently read to the Court, felt that she was wounded
in the niNsi cruel manner in which a wife could
t* injured; and she felt also that she had daughters
nose reputation and fair prospects in life de|?ended
upon the discontinuance of a correspondence which
those letters proved to exist between her husband
and Mrs. Payne. She did in this case what any respectable
woman, a mother, and a wife would do :
she evinced even more than common self command
in this case, for she went to Mr. Chidgey, who is
an assistant surgeon at Keyneham, and the brother
to Mrs Payne, to induce that gentleman to prevail
upon his sister to discontinue the correspondence.?
She requested for this purpose to have a private interview
with Mr. Chidgey, which that gentleman refused;
and said that, it she had anything to say, she
should say it in the surgery, when there were two
gentlemen present Kxcited, as may be supposed,
by the letters then in her hand, still more excited at
being thus treated when she came upon an errand
the most judicious, the tnost temperate, and, he
might say, the most kind to the plaintiff that could
he conceived, Mrs. Rowley certainly did speak under
the impulse of strong feelings, and said, "II I
must speak out, I say your sister has been holding
an improper correspondence with my husband;" hut
even if she used the words staled on the other side,
of which she was not aware, he conceived the Court
would consider that the provocation was such as to
remove the necessity of condemning her in costs
.inrt enjoining penance. Whatever the words were
that she then used, Mr. Chidgev was apparently not
less excited, for he shook his fist at her, and said,
"By God, it you were a man that said this, I would
knock you down." The learned proctor having detailed
f_hp tacts to the effect above stated, read the
depositions of Mercy Ware, servant to Mrs. Payne;
of Miss Amelia Rowley, and ot Miss Jeronomy
Rowley, daughters of the defendant. The evidence
of Mercy Ware stated thai a considerable number
out ql fifteen or sixteen letters produced were written
by her mistress to Mr. Rowley;that her mistress
read over some ofthe letters to her, (Mercy Ware,)
and desired tier to deliver them to Mr. Rowley, and
to nobody else; some of the letters were signed
"Constant4" some of them were addressed to"Forget
me Not." This witness had seen nothing improper
pass between her mistress and Mr Rowley, except
that he once gave her a kiss. It an improper
intimacy had taken place at Mrs. Payne's hou-e, it
might lie without her (witness's) knowledge of it ?
The evidence of the Miss Rowley's, young ladies
grown up, proved the handwriting of Mrs Payne on
some ot the letter*; that they had, with their mother's
consent, been on visiting terms with Mrs.
Payne before these letters were known of; that they
had never witnessed nnv impropriety of conduct between
their father and Mm. Payne; that their mother
had prohibited them visiting that lady, and that
they had not since visited her. Some of the letters
to heir father were addressed to "Forget me Not,"
and a lew to Mr. "Tatton." The learned gentleman
then read extracts from the original letters
The letters wre about twenty in number, and
were signed 44 Constant," Htid addressed to 44 Forget
me Not." They were all in the same tone, oc
castoially interspersed with drawings of flowers and
hearts and poetry; as tor in-tance?
" Forget me not.though we may part,
IVrh ips, aid*', to meet no moie,
Remember that there heat* a heart
That loves you to it* inmost core."
In another pait ot the same le'ter the lady reminds
the gentleman that " her love is not to be
trifl 'd with." In a subsequent episil-, the platonic
widow, after exhorting Mr. Rowley to burn her
notes, so that they may be safe and out of danger,
adds?441 would die to save you, for 1 do not blush
to own I l?ve you truly, fervently, pas-ionalely, but
not lustfully "
(In the 1st of January, 1840. she sends him a
kee|wake. accompanied by a letter, in which she
admonishes liirn to "remember to follow the dictates
of religion, so that at the last you may meet
me in glory " In the same letter the amorous again
gels the belter of the religious, and the widow thus
breaks forth:?" I have kissed it (a note from Mr.
Howley), not twenty times, but twenty times twenty;
how much would I not rather have had them
from the writer, not the writing. I hope I shall
The extracts having been read,
Mr Bridges addressed fhe Court, saying that the
tacts formed, if not a justification, such a mitigation
of the words used as to exonerate his client
from penance and from costs.
Mr. Hartmcy, on the o'her side, pressed for sentence
against the defendant.
The learned Chancellor then proceeded to deliver
his judgment. The learned Judge, having
gone over the tacts of the case, as stated above, said
that the words used were defamatory there was no
doubt, bin the question was. whether there was a
justification of iheru. The Chancellor then read
some of the letters, commenting upon some of the
impassioned expressions in thern, and said there
were in all fifteen or sixteen letters in the same fervid
strain; and it was impossible that anv wife
could see such letters addressed to her husband
without being irritated. Whether any criminal
intercourse really took place between the plaintiff,
and the defendant's husband, he did not know; but,
looking at the letters, there was every excuse to the
defendant for believing that there had. Was this,
then, a case in which a court jtro tuilxUt anima,
co.ild punish the defendant for having uttered the
words that she did utter under the circumstances!
lie certainly could not hold that it was such a rase
When lie looked at a/I the lacts before him, there
appeared to him to be i justification of the words
used. He should, therefore, di-miss the party trout
he suit, and from all lurther conseqic n :es
A Gambling Hottsk in Paris ?What a contrast
to the dark and gloomy streets of Paris, with their
irregular pavement, was the brilliantly lighted vestibule,
with its marble pillars and spacious stair rising <
gracefully beyond it, which met my eyes as I entered
f'rescati's. Following in the crowd of je-rsons who
pressed their way along, 1 reached a large antechamber,
where several servants in rich liveries received
the hats and canes of the visitors w ho thronged
eagerly forward, their merry voices and gny
laughter resounding through the arched roof.
At the wide doors were thrown open noiselessly, I

thr ugh the groups, or promenading slowly up and

which, without waiting lo count, he threw on the ah

Monument to BtntNs' Highland Mary.?This y
monument, to which we have more than once alluded
while in progress, has now been completed '
over the grave jf Highland Mary, in the West
Churchyard, Greenock; and it will be no longer J,"
noticed with regret, as has often been done by .
strangers, that there was not even a stone to mark
the resting place of a maiden whose love inspired '.j1
some of the most impassioned lyrics which have c''
enriched our own or any other language. The au
erection is mttre of the Roman than the Grecian
style of architecture, is pyramidal in form, and all
mav be said to be divided into two compartments, goi
the cornice stones between which are beautifully am
and elaborately carved The first or lower com- is t
partment con'ains the inscription tablet The sc. tin
C"nd bears a bas-relief of Burns and Mary Campbell, Jer
representing their pariing scene, when they plighted hit
troth and exchanged Bibles across the "stream HW
around the Castle of Montgomery." The artist we
has been peculiarly happv in depicting the position mi
of the happy pair at this hallowed parting ; and few bo
who have seen a correct likeness of the bard can pni
fail to recognise it upon the beautiful Ayrshire na
stone which has been used, although it has been ne- ly
cessirv, to be in keeping with the truth, to im- tfie
part to the features a more juvenile cast to those thi
in which Robert Burns is usually represented The an
third compartment contains a figure emblematical of Dt
griet, bending over an urn wiih her arms encircled, '
and on which is carved the word "Mary " Above rhe
her head, and almost at the apex of the pyramid, a j,,
star with rays is cut, in rememhr inee of the beautiful
invocation of "Mary in Heaven." The inscription
on the monument is simply couched as follows ?
"Sacred to Genius and Love? to Burns and Highland
Mary." The monument stands about 17 feet
high, was erected at the cost of ?100, and is bv
far the most imposing object in this old churchyard.
It is not a little curious that, during the last forty
years,various proposals have been made (or erecting
a stone to mark the grave of Highland Mary, and
subscriptions have been entered into; but the spirit
whit h commenced them evaporated before the I
work whs done. On ihe arrival of Highland MaryY gal

Mr. Editor?The fight between M'Kay and Gibins,
of Glasgow, as advertised lit your paper, ram*
I, without let or hindrance, on Tuesday, at Duil ston
Toll, five miles from Glasgow. Although
e morning was unpropitious it did not preven' an
lmense assemblage of people; there were at least
IXH) siiectators in and Hbout the ring. At half past
ne o'clock M'Kay threw tiis cap into the ring,
iving tor his attendants Harney Toy M Tear, nnd
as immediately followed by Gibbous, with Bobby
reeme (the Slashing Butcher) and Jem M'Allister,
his seconds.
Gibbons is an extremely elegant little fellow, and
inds beautifully on his pins. He drew 7st 121b,
lile M'Kay balanced the beam rtst 41b. No time
is lost in making the necessary arrangements, and
ten o'clock everything was ready. Gibbons*
? was green and white, M'Kav's of a nondescript

Gibbons let go with his Icit, which was rerned;

In the second round M'Kay drew the claret from

to detail the rounds, 9e) in number, occupying

and succeeded in planting his right on Gibus's

In this way fought with alternate success, M'Kay
