I/ady Colin Campbell has estab lished such preponderating evidence of an nlibl against the alleged 1'uillcet hotel lull- delltj as todeslioy that allocation leilly the only my stiong circumstance against ml- Indy. The medical testimony to day de- Btrovcd all suspicions about her alleged mis- cairlagoor Dr. Bird's alleged Indiscretions beyond medical necessities. Letters pio- duccd to day between the mother-in-law and the Duke of Aigylo kill the allegation that film desired the marriage , or sang , as it were , "Come , llasto to the Wedding. " run vioriii.is-i.\'i.Aw's i.r.rrr.n. Let mo begin with the coiiospondencc. Some months before the marriage the mother- in-law , Mary Ann Hlood , wrote thus to papa- in-lavv Aigjle , ( puite In the style of old comedy : "Mv Lonn DUKI : Pew things would bo more painful or mortifying to me than to teel no self called , ns a matter of duty , voluntarily to enter into communication with jour grace on a matter of business connected with Iho approaching marriage ot jour son with my daughter. Though the day has not been definitely announced , 1 believe It will take place cither on the -Oth or7th of July. Jlcfore opening tlio nritter of business alluded to I wish to explain somewhat our position with regard to this marriage. We have had nothing whatever to do with It. The engagement made without our con sent belli ? asked , but when our daughter re turned to us fiom Scotland wo saw plainly it was quite useless to tiy to Induce her to change her mind. I think jou had the same experience with > our son. 'ihcy have cei- talnly been true to each other during tl'O ( lijht months of much trial during which they hnvo been engaged , and It is our deter mination to make the best of what cannot bo changed , as , according to my old fashioned Ideas , It would bo a gieatbcandal and breach of honor If either were now to diaw back , which , indeed , neither of them appeals to have the .smillcst Inclination to do. ( ieitiudo has sulfered too much anxiety and worry dining the last otgiit months to make It possible for ns to allow her to bo kept longer than is absolutely necessary In her present position. &ho is very brave , but there are limits to what a girl can safely bear. If any ono had prophesied to mo a j ear ago that I should consent to our dauchter making such a niarilago as this 1 should lime laughed at the very Idea. " Tin : H.MII Aprnovii : > . When Sir Charles Uusscll read this ducal snub the mother-in-law nodded Iiom the witness stand her approval , and two jurjmcn seemed to nod theh appioval. "L should have e.xpected her to bo received with pride and Joy In any family , no mattei whoso It might be. She Is well bom , beau tiful , of most noblochaiacter and exception ally gifted. Her only defect Is she has but the portion of a private gentlewoman , and therefore she has been ignored witli htndicd discourtesy by every member of jour grace's family , over whom joui inlluenco is pata- moiint. Then she mairics n man w ho cannot settle a six pence on her. This mattei of money Is my cause for writing. It is your \vlsh to leave XMOO of ( Jortrudo's money entirely unsettled , In order that Lord Colin may have so much command of capital , which may bo of great Importance to him in his future carcei , but this depends on jour giaco consenting to settle Lotil Colln's jounger son's portion as a Jointure. This , with 200 bt'cincd to her as a mortgage on her father's propeitj , would be a small pro vision , but It would boa ceitainty. Jf your grace refuses this airangemcnt It will make no dilfcrence as to the fact of tlio maulaie , lint it will oblige ns to settle Btiictly all of ( ! eititide's money , leaving hci no power to deal with it except by will. This settlement will be a ( .01 tain loss of income to them , ns securities which satisfj tinstecs give very .small Inleiests. lint that will not bo 0111 fault , as wo are tiling to deal as libeially as possible with Lord Colin , to whom wo are much attached , and to whom we would wish to give every posslhlo help In his careei. " Alli\ I.I.'H hlNItl.Y IIKI'J.V. To this , on the veiy day ot its receipt , the haughty duke , whoso dlscouiicons answei two years latei to a note fiom Lady Colin Campbell has already been cabled to the llei- ald , answered kindly , thus : "Aiunu : Lotion , KI..NM.VOTOX , May 25 Madame : t have received jour letter of this dale. I have never supposed that jon or Mr. Hlood had the smallest responsibility con nected with your daughters engagement to in ) son , but It was Impossible for mo lo ap prove that engagement , made on some three days' acniialntaiico , with no pio- vlous knowledge whatever of each other's chniacler and dispositions' . I have thought It my duty to withhold nil ap pioval of such an engagement , and not to recognl/e It until It should hu Inevocabln. Hut ( hi * determination Is not Intended as any dlscouitesy toyour danuhter or to her patents. As you now liiftiiin mo that you consider iho engagement HO luevocahle that so eompaiiulvely early a day is spoken of for the man lace , 1 am disposal , as 1 have already told Colin 1 should do , to make the best of what cannot be prevented. "Under the clienmstances , I shall bu ills- posed to mukit some arrangement of the Mibjort ) ou relm to , but 1 cannot help think ing that , as tlm total bum which you ean give to your daughter and that which 1 can give to Colin , Is more tlmn 111,000 , the whole of It ought to be buttled and no pait of it ought to bo treated as Income 01 u od other- vvlsottianns capital , secure for the puipose of alloullug an Income. " jnr HKst'i.T. Here , i may pertinently add , that in the result only 11,000 was left out of the settle ment , and thin was used to pay some of Lotd Colln's debts and furnish a house.

Aflcr the coirespondcnto was read , Sir Chailesltiissell asked : "Is there any foundation for the suses- tlon that v on , In any shape or toi in , coerced or pressed Lord Colin Into UiU eusase- menty" To which ho'promntly answered : "Cer tainly not , 1 poke to him strongly as to the discomtesj- with which Ins family treated my daughter. 1 said , 'If y on had presented your lather with a butcher's daughter ho would have welcomed her with elliiblon If she had plenty of monny , and he ought , nt least , to treat my daughter with courtesy , being what she K1 lie replied : 'That's perfectly Hue , and It makes my fatbei's conduct only the moro disgubthu.

On the coiitinry Indiscreet questions brought out these answcis : "I angrily remonstrated with Lord Colin about the trcalmont his family gave her , and he laughed at mo.

THE wiT.vnss' LOOKS. Mrs. Dlood was attired in matronly blnck.

He admitted having been the cliucket-out of the dis charged maid , and of having siiakcn his list and seeing his father shake his tut also in Loid Colin's face at the time of the family meeting In Thuiloo Square. He and his wife produced letteis which had passed between them in the days of the alleged I'mllceL adultery showing tliat , if they had not been manufactured for the put pose , L ly Colin was In London.

U lie jurors had asked permission to visit tlio house In ordur to see for themselves , but .Justice Bull refused such permission , as it was refused in the Dllkc case , scntcntiously lemaiking tliat if all the houses that were the scenes of divorce evidence were to bo visited by jurors dire confusion would result , rnovi.vo A.VAI.IIII. To prove tlie alibi against tlio I'm fleet Inci dents , which rest on testimony regarding personal Identity , a railway clerk and a cai man swore to the delivery ot some grouse on the day Lady Colin was said to be at I'lirtleet with Lord lilandioid. The date was per fectly lixed to the receipt. Lady Colin'b maid swore she took thocronsoln and iccog- ni/ed hci signature to The leceipt , nnd tliat hci mistress remained In town all Sunday. She fixed the date because she then lent tier mistress hoi bievlaiy to go to theCarmel- ito chinch , nnd being a Catholic , remembered this rare elicnmstance in a 1'iotestant.
