This publio announcement to congress
that tho MaMaohusatt legislature had re
scinded tho resolution of censure passed
on Mr. Huuiner for introducing the bill
Indicated gave blm great satisfaction, il
an exultant and pleased look could show
It ; but he said nothing to the senate, as
was expected, and only received the con
gratulations of Senators Tontou and
llatulltou. Hut he seemed lo feel as if
this act had added to his exlstonco, and It
was certainly one ot tbe proudest mo
ments of hie life.
A dull flnansial debate then set in, and
Air. Sumner wandered around thu cbam
ber and over to
where ho seldom used to go, and sat down
in a seat by Senator uoidtnwalt, or Uoor
eia. hi old classmate In cellego, and turn
Ing to Sonator Bogy, of Missouri, he said,
"I am glad to meet you in tbe senato, and
I should be pleased to have you call on
mo at my house. I am always at homo
in the evening." To Mr. Ooldthwait be
passed the compliments of the day, and
then went over to Senator Sargent's seat,
witn wnom tie naa never been intimate
but. as they had fought tho centen
nlal bill together, he decided to ask
tho California senator If be bad
ro.elved any anonymous and Insult
Ing letters for his course on that
bill. "I have received several" said Mr
Sumner, "and they annoy me." Mr
Sargent reolled that he had not onlv re
celved iheoe by mall but by oxpress, but
be paid no attention to thom. It struck
Senator Sargent that he was not in his
uiual nealtb. or ha would not have allow
ed himself to becoaae worried over such a
trifling matter. Be said good by to Mr.
Sargent, and a few minutes pait 8 o'clock

They had often talked about the malady,
ana, nom being auectea, suggested vari

then toll better, and took dinner at C
o'clock, to which lio had invited Con
gressman l'ricu and I'orley l'ooro, tbe
correspondent. The dinner passod ploas
antly. Mr. Sumner complained a little,
but seemed othorwlso in excllent spirits.
It has ilnco appoared that Mr. Sumner
had been feeling very ill for two days.

It was expected Mondav that an Inter

common pleas court, when a bill in equity
wouia ue uieu nearing mm -joun A.
Kohrssen, platntifl', vs. Caralluo Richard
son, alias Caroline Ualdwin, alias Caro
line Kobriseu, aud Thomas Richard
son, her husband." The par
ticulars of the case seem somewhat
of a romance, and the developemenls du
ring tne trial win doubtless prove as in
teresting as tbo brief story of tbe re
markable circumstances under which the
action is to bo instituted. Some thirteen
or fourteen years ago, John Knhrstun be
came acquainted with a woman named
Caroline Ualdwin, and a firm friendship
was esiatmsned between Ihera. Tho fair
Caroline represented herself as tho widow
of a departed Baldwin, who. after an
uneventful career in this world, had
gone to another. Neglecting tho advice
or old man Waller, John did not "bovare
of the vidder." In fact, to show his con
Utnpt for old Hamlvel's sago precept, be,
on the 10th of June, 16C1, marrlod Mrs.
Baldwin, the ceremonv being performed
by Squire Starr, or Se'wlckler-lt was a
star engagement. Tbe subsequent season
of matrimonial bliss was not disturbed by
any demestlo troubles, and Kohrseen af.
lotted to his wife twenty acree of land on
tbe boundary of Allegheny and Washing
ton oountiss, and afterwards purchased
and preionted her with
two lots In Allegheny, upon
which. In addition to two houses, be after
ward built throe more, she getting tho en
tire property. Years rolled on and peace
and contentment were tbe lot or Kohrs
sea and bis wlfo, nee Caroline Baldwin.
But a short time ago a change came o're
the spirit of John's dreams. He alleges
that be has ascertained that when Caro
Use married blm she had a husband liv
ing, of which fact she was well aware
and that this husband, In the person of
Thome Richardson, live in the city of
Allegheny to-day. The remainder
of the prologue to this interest
log domestic drama Is brief
Kx-hrssen says that Caroline was married
to Richardson on the Mthday of October,
