,< him bo could procure a divorce; that ho need not
reside in Chicago two years, nor oven more than
fifteen minutes. All that was necessary was to
enter tho appearance of the wife, have It referred
to a master, and tho thing was done. A stipula
tion was drawn for Mrs. Austin to sign, dl which
the following is a copy, omitting tho title and
Tonne:
I, Hannah J. Austin, defendant in tho above cause,
hereby enter my appearance lu above cause, waive ser
vice of process, os required by law of said State, con
sent to a default ami reference to a Master in Chancery
to take proofs in said causo, ana report tbo same to
said Court immediately upon the filing of this appear
ance.
This was sent to her,either byFiltz or her hus
band. She did not know what it meant. Soon
after, Austin wrote her a letter, demanding her
signature, and threatening that if sho withhold
it ho would persecute her as long as ho or sho
lived. Woman-like, she, instead of keeping her
own counsel, wroto him she was coming hero,
and, taking an infant of a year old, started, ar
riving in Chicago last Saturday. But sho could
find no trace of her husband. Sho finally wont
to tho Court, and there mot Mr. Wilson, a
Olork in Judge Williams’ room, who afforded nor
every help ho could. Ho found tho bill in tho
case, and gave it, with the explanations necessa
ry, to Mr. Hardy, who generously undertook to
see her rights wore protected, and she is now on
her way back homo.
Instood of two, they have four Ho
owns a form of 820 acres, 160 of which is under
cultivation. There is a mortgage on tho farm of
SI,BOO. While ho baa boon gone sho has boon
obliged to borrow money and hire men to take
caro of the fall crops. Tho estate is nominally
loft in hor possession, but, of course, after di
vorce, ho would sell it andor her foot.
It is very likely that this case wiU never bo
tried now, for, to gain adocroo, Austin would bo
obliged tQ.pwear to an unblushing lie in every'
material fact; but. in tho course of a
year or two, will bo recorded “No.
46,801—Dismissed for want of prosecution.”
Under tho new rule, tho appearance
would avail little or nothing, for tho Judges
would require oroplo proof of all tho facts, the
only result being that it would act as a default
for want of answer.
INJUNCTION AGAINST TRUSTEE’S BALE.
A bill was filed and Injunction obtained before
10 o’clock yesterday morning by James Murphy
agaiuat Michael Finucau ana Joshua C. Knick
erbocker, to restrain tho latter from proceed
ing with a solo under a trust deed, which was to
havo taken place at 10 o’clock. Murphy states in
his bill that in September, 1872, ho made a trust
deed to said Kniokorokor, convoying the follow
ing property: Lots 17 and 18 of tho subdivision
of tho north two acres of Lot 2, Block 26, Canal
Trustees’ Subdivision of the south fractional
port of Sec. 29, SO, 14. This was to secure
the payment of three notes fors6ll.ll each,
payable to Nicholas Boyle, for part of the
purchase money for said promises. Provision
was made by the usual covenants for a solo in
case of default, after throe weeks’ notice given.
The first note foil duo Sept, 7, 1873. In June.
1878, Boyle gave a note for $l,lOO to one Michael
Schmitz, duo Nov. 4, 1873, and to secure it pro
cured the indorsement of Michael Fiuncau.
Then, to secure Finncan, Boyle deposited with
him tho three notes of complainant above men
tioned, to bo hold as collateral security only. In
tho early port of September last, and before tho
maturity of the first note, Murphy made an ar
rangement with Boyle and Finncan, by which,
on consideration of Boyle's extending tho time of
payment of the first note, complainant promised
to pay tho whole.three notes by Oot. 1, and also
half of the taxes of 1872, which Boyle was liable
to pay. Complainant immediately went to work
to raise tho money, and succeeded in negotiating
therefor. Finncan, however, os Murphy charges,
without tho knowledge of Boyle, who was yet
the legal holder of tho notes, privately, with In
tent to harass him, complainant, wont to
Knickerbocker, tho trustee, and represented
himself tho owner of the notes, asked him to
sell tho property for non-payment of said first
note.. On tho 20th ol September, tho trustee
advertised tho land for sale, for tho 13th of
October, ond complainant filed his bill just in
time to prevent this sale. An injunction was
issued under a bond of SSOO, by Judge F&rwell.

Tho Hon. P. B. 8. Pinchbaok, ox-Liout.
Qov. of Louisiana, addressed a largo body
of tbo colored citizens of Chicago yesterday
evening in tho First Colored Baptist Church, on'
Fourth avenue. Tho speaker was introduced by
Mr. John Jones. lie spoko of tbo pleasure It
gave him to moot tho colored citizens of Old*
cago in n State where, not long sinco. a
colored man was forbidden by law to settle.
Referring to tho present condition of tho colored
people la tho South, ho called their atton
tion to tho groat debt tho colored people owed
to tho Bopubllcan parly for Us heroic sacrifices
and efforts to obtain freedom and tbo franchise
for tho negroes. Ho then gave an account of
tho situation during tho last election In
Louisiana, giving a most roseate coloring to
everything done by tho Kellogg party and claim
ing that tho Administration majority in that State
was 20,000, of which 6,000 wore white and tho
remainder colored. Ho delivered a eulogy upon
tholifo and character of President Grant, giving
unqualified praise to Ida action with regard to the
support of tho Kellogg party. Ho glided from
this topic to a review of his prospects for tho
United States Sonatorsblp, claiming that all ob
stacles bad boon removed, and that ho would
take his seat without difiioulty. His words of
advice to tho colored people to save up money,
to buy land, and stop expensive habits, showed
that his head was level on those points. Ho
closed with tho recommendation to tho colored
people to choose some representative man of
their race and to stick to him.
It ia Singular
That people will sometimes buy a stove they think
moy bo a good ono, when they know Ilathbono’sFcar
lest, Brilliant, and other stoves are good beyond
doubt.
Andrew Johnson was not a popular President,
and may hoar for a few years the stigma of be
ing an “ accident,” But since the present Ad
ministration loaves nothing to accident, not
oven the falling to tho ground of the politi
cal sparrows ol distant school districts, tho pub
lic mind is not so ropollod by tho accidental
os it was. At all events, wo venture to say that
tho ox-Prcsidont has tho public sympathy in tho
loss of SGO,OOO by tho failure of tho First Na
tional Bank at Washington. President Grant
recovers his thousands out of tho same institu
tion, and if ho does It by any precaution in tho
terms of deposit, why, wo congratulate him on
his sagacity. Mr. Johnson, as ho used to remind
us, 11 catno up from tho people,” and his §60,000
represented the thrift of many years* economy.
Ho was not a man who achieved greatness at a
stroke, and who stood over after In a shower of
farms, houses, big oxen, fancy puppies. Havana
cigars, Colorado silver mines, and back-pay
grabs. In fact, one of his virtues, of which wo
did not think so highly as wo ought to at tho
time, was his refusal of gifts while in office.—
