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

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

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

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

One more cause lo which we shall refer

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
