Johnson has commenced a^suit for divorce against bis m ile, Nettie^Johnson, and in bis complaint sets forth^that he was married to the defendant in^St. Paul in May. 1**7. They lived together^up to last Sunday, when the wife disre^^garded her marriage vows, and without^the consent or connivance and against^her husband's will, abandoned his house^and home a ith the intent and purpose of^leading a life of shame and becoming a^public bad character, and on that day en^^tered and liecame an inmate of a house^ut ill fame and common brothel known as^Carrie Ned's, situated on Fast (ialena^street. Since that date the defendant has^ticcu guilty of extreme nets of lewdness^with |h.rsoiis to the husband unknown,^and she is now living in the house above^mentioned, for all of which the husband^well considers himself entitled to a decree^of divorce. Thesummons in the divorce case of^Henry Kics against his wife. ( aroliuc.^were issued to-day. The plaintiff says that^they were married at Virginia City. Feb.^-I. ISS'i. and that they mm together as^hiisbuud and wile up to last Saturday,^when he made the startling iliseover^.^upon his sudden return to his home in^Walkcrvillc. that some one had assumed^his place at the head of the family, since^which time be has not lived w ith her. He^demands a divorce ami the custod.v of the^following minor children : William Heni .v.^aged 4 years: Adeline Latins, aged 7, and^l.eota Josie. aged ::. The plaintiff alleges^ihat his w ile is not a proper person toliave j^c'listody of the children. Illthe Thompson divorce case, the court j^this morning overruled the defendant's^motion to strike out the complaint ami for I^judgment. The judge said die complaint^vv a- inconsistent m some minor inspects,^hut as a whole it sets up a cause of action. ;^The defendant was granted Id days to die j^an answer. O'Donneir*Sawmill. Themotion to strike out 111* testimony I^nud tora non-suit in the sawmill ease of 1^O'Dotincll again-: l-nvell Brothers was !^argued tins morning and ^)'i i m m il came 1^out w inner as the court denied any part^ol the motion. The defendant Ixi-ed his^argument on the allegation that theie was^no consideration alleged in the pleadings^nor proven I ^ the ev idence to support the^tru-t attempted to Is- cr.iahlishcd. ami pes^cause it appeals Iroin the pleadings and^c\ ideucc of the plaintiff that ImMMMM^to enforce a \erbal agreement of trust^aticl.it the same time to avoid his written^hdl of side by evidence showing mental^and physical i;ica|iaci:^ existing at the^time b uh transactions Mast place. The^i', ideucc of the plaintiff shows conclus^^ively that even if a trust had Mm^created, yet the contillge:ic^ onwha-h die^trust was to end has noi yet arrived, or^w lien the trustee hail i-cceived from the^ptollts of the business the whole of the^plaintiff's indebtedness to the defendant*, j^and until such tune theie could Ik' tiocoti- I^vor-sioli by the trustees. The c\ ideucc on I^the pa: t of the plaintiff shows that no^offer to Baa1 the indebtedness has ever^Im*cu made and the trust continuing then,^must lie an accounting or demand tor one^before the present action BtMM be main^^tained. Wheathe mint overruled the motion^for a non-suit deolV t-i v ^ 11 went on the^witness .stand and told his side i f im^deal, denying about every thing testified^to hv O'DoMMU.

The^|uest ion as to w hether Jolm Ko^e^can lie tried again on the charge of grand^larceny after the jury found him not^guilty, under instructions from the court,^because of an error in the information,^was set for argument this morning, but^was continued mdcllintely on account of^the saw mill ease on trial.

HI'TTK AMI UOSTOV ActivePreparation* faar Hie Krccllon uf^New Itllilfllligs.^Hi n r.. June 2.--The scene of the recent^destructive lire ut the Untie ^ Host on^company's pro|^erty near Mraderville w ill^soon present a far different ap|iearauce^from what it d.K-s now. anil the new^smeller will short l.\ rise Phoenix-like from^the ashes of its predecessor. The new^buildings will he slightly larger than those^destroyed and w ill be built w Ith a view of^rendering another conflagration impos^^sible. They will be constructed entirely^of steel and iron and will be covered with^corrugated ceppi r. Al! the braces, stays,^crosspieees and supports will be of either^iron or steel, and there will not be a piece^of wood as big as a man's hand used any^^where in the construction of any of the^buildings, iii addition to this measure of^precaution, however. Captain Palmer will^nave hydrants placed at all available points^throughout the different buildings so that^an abundant water supply may be^bad at a moment's notice. The hydrants^and hose will also he of the same sue as^those used by the city so that the depart^^ment will be able to connect Its I lose in an^emergency without any difficulty. While^the new buildings will be larger than Hie^ones that were burned down the capacity^of the smelter will remain the same as be^^fore. Theplana for the buildings have just^been draw n up by Leonard A Kay. The^main smelter will be Wit feet long by S4^wide. The budding which will be erected^over the O'Hara furnaces will be the next^largest in size unci will be 210 feet by 10a.^The small O'Hara furnaces will lie covered^by a building 128 feet by 64, and the^Hrueekner building will he 124 by 48 feet.^The furnaces were not much damaged by^the fire and can lie easily repaired by the^time the buildings are up. The insurance^has all Is'cn settled to the satisfaction of^all parties. Hids for the construction of^the buildings are being received to-day^and the contracts w ill be awarded to-mor^^row. Captain Palmer will buve the work^pushed as rapidly as possible, but he is of^the opinion that on account of the build^^ings being entirely of iron and steel it w ill^take two mouths or more to complete^them and get everything in running order^again. About 400 men were laid ofT at^the time of tin* tire ami as many of these^as can Is- used will lie put to work on the^new buildings. Much of the work will^necessarily have to be done by ex|ier-^IMMM men but the miners and smelter^men can be used to advantage in the gen^^eral construction work. With the Untie^nud Hoston smelter starling up in full^force at one end of town ami upwaids of^200 men being put to work again at the^Alice at the other end and all the mini's^and mills iu llutte running at their full^capacity, the pruspects for u bright and^^^roK|^crous MMMM in the greatest min^^ing camp on earth were never better.
