While the (pi1 slion of divorce is exciting co much intcic&t in the public mind and is the subject of &n mucli delate, a very timely contribution t j the literature of the subject I: an article by Jude John A. Jameson of Chicago In the April number of the Sorth American Jittieio. Judge Jameson'd opin ions -will c u ry great weight from his ac- hnowletlg'-d eminence in the legal profession. ai.d from his long and Intimate acquaintance with tho prnctlc.il side of the question. His tseccral Icis are marly coincident with those heretofure expressed by tho Kkee Pjas5, and formulate, indeed, the Judgment of the ureal innjrily of practical men on t'lW much-vexed subject. A resume of Judga Jamcbon'i aiticle will he of general luluiest. Ipcitliiug first of divorce laws and their ai hi nlbtr.it Ion in the Wtbtern SHtcs, Judge Jimcson sa)b that no city has suffered more from its supposed hiuly than Chicago. Con. sUUiiuglhc oiiglc and magnitude of Its pjpulati tn, in.vie up by thcconlluencjof the Bepaiate oveiflows of all nillons, that city hgs behind uany pirts of the V ist in the rehllve nuihher of its divorces. Liberality In granting divorce?, however, Is not a New Jl inland iden. IWurcthcriscof Christlaully, tlu le tiling nations of tltc world allowed un limited dhorec. It wus the Inv of the J Jin doo, the Chinese, tho Jevs, the Itomu.f, Iheaifitul IStitonp, anil, with soiiio iftieivahons, of the Greeks Chiistlauity, rcrimctlug the supposed d.ini law phced stiict liniitH to tlic right tf (livoiee, ciiotluingiltoa sing'ctaue, a lull cry. From tho union of tho Christian and Itouuu atoe tliu riuon law, which, as the 1 nv of the rhuich of Home, became, as to inarrlnge anddlvoicc, that of Christen, dom. Tho early reformers revolted ajrainst tho canonical restil'iluns imposed by the chure'i, utid in all communities In which their rli clples hive pievailed a moro liberal system f illvoic's has been established LIUralUy In gi.mtlug divi-rciS is but a step In thu general m m'm?ut f jr ereatcr social frc(dnii) wllcli eh irai t-iio our mo Icrn ue, If Xi w IJaglunl hits hrtou.e dUtln Cutehedforit.it i bfa'iM'bhe htsicverled farthest toward tlie fiiInal l)pe. Thedivtitity of ni'Mmi U.v toid j luctlec of divorce rcils upou dillirent eoi.ceptFonsof the nature of marriage. Indeed, inverse customs and laws touching these tubjects have been but attempts at different luges oi civilization to rcacli the golden mean, where cither by the enforced cjotlnuanw of mar- tlagj or by divorce, the evil to all conccrneu should be the least, and the good the great rat. the tent tiuestlon belni, What regula- it,r. will best mi iwrve tho interests, nrsi oi society t Becoadly, of the children; and list- lv. of the parties themselves ? The arguments bearing on tho question of in,. r,.i nr nf rair ctcil divorce arc very nicely balanced. Whereby law m. ihgo Is indissoluble, or where loo great obstacles are thrjwn In the way of Its dis olutlon, tho flisconlenic.i pirues oie Iv either lo abscond, or to defy law and rc- llnlou. and sink Into il.unnt Immorality. This presents the least Injurious phase. Com- tielled loconllmic a hated union, I hey may endeavor to cast off thtlr burden by erlme.or Mtk revenge by brutal treatment.of the inno cent standing in the way. On the other hind the knowledge on the nut of nnrrled persons that they may easily or for slight causes, dissolve their relation, tends to make all mailt d differences Irreron elhhle. Hut If It he known tint no divorce will he alloed fr any caiic.nr tli it notliin, but an ofTcuseof tin most serious ehiracter p.in ho ma le th-' mound for it, and that oui nt eieat co-t In money and In social lirnonii nv. uuirtels will be s-'ltled and a modus Vi vendi discovered. Tins Is the chief nrgumcut nrridnst liberal diorcos. In Illinois dl voices (i vinculo are granted for adultery, extreme and repeated cruelly, .tle-crllon, hahuuil .Iriinkcnness. and felony. Judge Jameson then comintcs the statistics of divorce In Il linois with lhoe in various puts of New Kiighiinl. and finds that they fall below the l.i'inr. When It U considered, he says, that Vermont 3 an old State, with a flid p laliou of nearlv pur.- American descent, the latbof one divorce t- ever 11 nuriiages, tn is?. Inillmti's a much crca'cr lax, ty In Its divorce laws tliau prevails le IIH- no.s. In rtspect to the uitivity and the busl- DCS9 unit social standing oE the parm to divorce suits.

From the uatuie of the case, cruel. tyU commonly exercised by thy husband upon the wife. Such conduct ludiratcs te.nper iucompitlblc with the martial rtla- tbu, and wh le It miiy inthct a less poignant mental dlstius than the scriptural ciusc: adultery it oahl not to ho permitted, on any erms tu contiuu-.'. Coasuler, ateo, the ease of detcitlon. Tho typical case of desertion Is that of a worn-out, heart-broken mother left hv her wretch of a husbaud lo struggle adnstpoveity, alone, with his children. In many cases the deserting husband lias re turned, after his wife, l-y j cars or tfruzgl liasaenuirid a little h me and a comfoi table s-ipport for hl3 children, and quarteied him s-.lf up-n her. The gteat extent of ourcoun try aud the migratory hiUts of our peopl ma'ie thei-o tho eummoi.c-t of all the his tories of djnutic miscty tn our courts, One more cause lo which we shall refer is that of habitiul drunkenness.

Xo such man ought to Ik; allowed to become the fath er of any wonun's ehlldien. Tlie best go.d, therefore, of the wife, of the children and of the public, i! email da that some divorces shall he granted fir non' scriptural causes. Hut when this Is said, alt lias been (aid that can be truthfully said In favor of liberal divorces as they are grant ed in Illinois. It is our fhm conviction that if the truth could bo acccrtalued, ut least two-lhinN, perhaps four-JUths of the 714 case; of divorce during the past year In Chi. cogo either weie fraudulent in fact, or, with a reasonably conciliatory temper on the part of the couples divorced, and under sufil- lenlly stilngfnt legal condiliom.fwere avoid abb or preventable. There Is, beyond ques- tlon, fraud in the Inception of many casts u others, doubtless, there is leal or virtual collusion. If some divorces on all the grounds utatcd ought lo be granted, and if, as the laws are, there ate vast numbers that ought not to be granted, what fehall be done toicmedy the evil? The answer Is, tho proceedings must be so mo lific I as to reilucc fraud and collusion to a minimum ; (lie coiv sequences cf a decree must be made to the guilty party highly punitory, and the public ,'Dtiment In regard to divorces must be cor rected. So much touching the notice and defence. Healths these change, there should bo one In tho consequences ot drrea of di- rorce to the offending p u tic3. Tupeumt both divorced parties to marry again Is to phce premium upon the commission of the of. fences by hw made the grounds of divorce. In cases of desertion, It should ho provided that, if Ihc complainant be a wife, the court should have power to grant the divorce, or, at her option, to continue the caw, to await her application for a requisition to compel her husband lo return and resume the pcrfoimauco of hU miaul du'.bs. That lids scheme of legislation would Involve a Federal euactmcnt authorizing requisitions such cases, constitutes tia objection to it. One who has lost a watch v.orlh fifteen or twenty dollars, by theft, in Muine, may set tu motion tho formidable machinery of State and Federal law, and dra; the thief hack to thfitStatc from the remotest corner of Oregon. Why should the wretch who Uza Jcjt bis helpless wife and children In the same State of -Mid nc, and "gone West to grow up with thecountn" and another wife, not he dragged buck fiom Oicgon as well ? Finally, tho most effective remedy will lj the olevatlon of public sentiment in regard lo the sanctity of marrlago the obligation lo keep tho faith which a mm has plttlgcd In marriage to his wlfi and to tho State, and which he renews upon the birth of each of bis children, to abide with her until death, unless separated by law for stiictly necessary causM.
