DIggs dcalrcs that the bond of matrimony which he contracted In December, 103, with Rebecca F. Diggs, may bo loosened, or unloosened, whichever tho Equity Court of the Dulrict shall choou. From the statement ofDlggs, which he his sworn to for the in formation of the judge holding the Equity term, he canuot be blamed for seeking to get rid of his com nan ion. Ho nays that when he went toC'nne May lu 1660 he left his wifo'in Philadelphia, bho became Intimately ac quaint"! with one Warren Mlddleton. with whom, lu tho home of her absent huvband, she frequently benino Impressed with the Idea that Mlddleton wns her husband.
