The case of Pierce Butler vs. Francis Ann
Butler, a libel for divorce from the bonds of
matrimony, came p yesterday before the
Court of Common Pleas, Judges King, Camp,
bell and Kelly being upon the bench. The
libel was filed by the husband, alleging wil
ful desertion by the wife from his habitation,
Which assertion was averred to have been
persisted in for more than two years. To
this an answer, covering many pages of pa
per, has been put in by the respondent. She
denies having wilfully deserted the habila
tion of her husband, but she avers to his
treatment of her, which has beeh cruel and
intended to make life burdensome, and such
as to justify her in removing from his house.
The answer denies generally the fact of wil
ful and malicious desertion as charged in the
libel, and avers that she was forced to with
draw in consequence of his unlawful and
wrongful conduct. It then avers that her ab
sence was with his knowledge and subse
quent assent. And, lastly, that his treatment
was cruel and rude, and such as to make life
burdensome to her, and which justified her
removing from his house. The answer then
goes on to state facts and circumstances upon
which the traverses and denial are founded.
It appears that the parties were married on
the 7th of January. 1934 and have two chil
dren, both girls, the eldest of whom is now
thirteen years of nao. ll slates that the par
ties had lived unhappily together for some
years previous to October, 1842, at which
lime they agreed to separate as far as all the
rights and duties of husband nnd wife were
concerned, though they still resided under
the same roof but in separate apartments.
Mrs. B. was to have a separate maintenance
of $1000 per year ; the children's education
to be superintended by the father, and the
mother allowed to see them. They were
placed under the control of a governess.
Matters remained this way until October,
1843, when in consequence of painful rumors
affecting her husband she felt that she had
entirely lost the love which she could never
regain. Of the truth of those rumors she had
noproof, but she spoke of them to her hus
band and felt assured by the circumstance
that there was no further hope of regaining
his affection. She still remained in his
house, hoping to be able to preserve her au
thority over her children and maintain to
wards them a mother's care. She heard,
however, that Mr. I'utler was about taking
means to remove the children to another
house, and she w rote to him asking to have
the privilege of going w ith them, proposing
to bury the occurrences of the past in obli
vion. His answer proposed to allow her that
privilege upon certain conditions, to consider
which lie gave her two days. The conditions
were so repugnant to her feelings that she
hesitated as to nccepting them until the two
days had passed, but an accident happening
to one of the children, which she thought de
manded all a mother's cave, in consequence
she determined to aerede to his conditions.
She avers that on this being communicated
to him, ho refused to accede to it, averring
that tho "two days'' having passed without
her accepting the proposition, she had
"abandoned" her children. Matters remain
ed this way until the children were removed
to the other house, and tho respondent being
denied the priviledge of going with them,
she felt there was no other course left to her
than to remove to a boarding house, which
she accordingly did in December.
Whilst here, the visits of her children,
which at first were daily, became less fre
quent, and finally ceased altogether. Her
allowance, under the agreement of separa
tion, was irregularly paid, and she avers that
every means was taken by the father to
prejudice her children ogniut her.
Whilst boarding in Chesnut street, sho re
ceived a letter from her sister in England, in
which she was iiiloimed that Mr. Uutler had
written to her, nnd signified his willingness
to receive her into the house again, on the
same fooling as before, if she would agree to
certain conditions. She accordingly wrote
to tho Rev. W. II. Furnc-iis on the subject,
who wrote to Mr. Duller. Some correspon
dence ensued, and it was finally agreed by
Mr. B. to receive her back, provided she
agreed to certain conditions, which weie re
duced to writing. These condition were
such as she seniplo.l much at assenting to,
but filially did so. They were principally
that she should abstain from any reference to
the occurrences of the past that she would
not speak of Mr. Butler, or writo concerning
hini or his affairs to any one and particularly
that she would have no intercourse, in word
or action, with the '-Sedgwick family," and
would be henceforth to them as if they
were entire strangers, and she had never
known them. She was not to hold inter
course wi'h any person whom Mr. B. disap
proved of, and if she wished to withdraw
from hfr agreements, was to give him notice.
These conditions she finally concluded to
sign, and on the 3d of March, 1845, went to
Mr. Butlers house, in Walnut street. She
aomplains that, whilst there, tho manage,
ment of her children was given entirely to
the governess that she was rarely allowed
to see them, and that when she did, it was
evident that endeavors had been made to es
trange them from her. Whilst she was there,
he received a letter from Miss Sedgwick,
enclosed in an envelop from her husband.
She was surprised at this, but interpreted the
circumstance into a permission by him to
read it, which she accordingly did. It proved
not to be with his permission, however, for
shortly afterwards she received a letter from
him, charging her w ith having violated the
conditions of her agreement, by receiving a
letter from Miss Sedgwick. She replied that
the had received it from him. He answered
that she should have infoimed them of the
agreement before she signed it that they
had meddled too much in his family affairs.
The letter received from Mr. B.on this occa
sion Mrs. B. avers to have in terms ordered
her to leave tha house, and would have been
a sufficient justification for her going. She
remained, however, and the children were
placed upon the "Parley farm," where; after
they were taken ihcie, she was forbid visiting
them, in consequence of a difficulty between
herself and the governess, caused by reports
against the latter in ciiculation out of doors.
These were charged by her and Mr. B. to
have been started by Mr Butler, but were
denied by her nevertheless, they aggrava
ted her sufferings and served to make her
feel wretched. Notwithstanding the prohibi
tion of her husband, she continued to visit
her children at the "Darley farm," until one
day Mr. B. came there and threatened to re
move the children, as he would not allow
them to remain if she visited there. She re
turned to the city, and remained for some
time at his house, not seeing the children
afterward Mr. Butler having loft the city,
in consequence of the house undergoing re
pairs. She remained in the city until Sept.,
1845, when, feeling that nothing had been
gained by her acceding to her husband's
I'conditions," she sailed for England. The
maintenance which was to bo paid her was
furnished very irregularly so much so that,
in 1847, in order to support herself, she was
forced to "resort to the laborious and distaste
ful employment of her youth.
To this answer exceptions have been taken
to the relevancy of the facts set forth and de
murrer made to certain parts. The argument
was commenced by Mr. Cadwalader for tho
libellant. Previously, however, Mr. Gerhard
intimated a willingness to withdraw the spe
cial answer filed, and filed a general answer
denying briefly tho allegations which were
made, if the respondent would lose nothing
by acceding to the suggestion of the Court on
Tiie Court said that the counsel must be
governed by their own judgment as to the
propriety of the course, nnd nfter some con
versation it was agreed that the case should
go on upon the pleadings as they stood.
Mr. Cadwalader then commenced tho ar
gument upon exceptions and demurrer. His
remarks were discursive, and in consequence
of his laying down no general propositions, it
was impossible to gain a succinct idea of the
grounds taken by the libellant. He appeared
to be endeavoring to show that in Pennsylva
nia the law in regard to divorce is regulated
by the ecclesiastical law of England, and that
our forms of proceeding are assimilated and
governed by the civil and canon law. The
canon law docs not require the intervention
of a jury in divorce cases, the facts being
spread out upon libel and answer. Mr. C.
cited many authorities to show that on issue
was not necessary, llo next took up the
question of cohabitation, anil cited authori
ties to show that tho legal meaning of the
woid was : living in the same house under
the same roof in the same habitation. This
branch of the argument was sustained by co
pious quotations from the canon and ecclesi
astical law and other writers, many of the
authors being in Latin. These were also
brought to illustrate the position that there
can bo no forfeiture of the conjugal rights un
less the acts complained of were brought
within the meaning of the ecclesiastical law
or the statute of this State. Mr. Cadwalader
occupied tho morning in enforcing the posi
tions referred to, and at three o'clock the
Court adjourned until this morning.
Mr. Butler was in Court, but Mrs. Butler
was not. She oriived in the city yesterday,
and is slaying at tho Washington House.
The counsel engajredare Messrs. John Cad
walader and Hon. Geo. M. Dallas for libel
lant, and Messrs. Benj. Gerhard, Wm. M.
Meredith and Hon. Bufus Choate, of Massa
chusetts, for respondent.
How to bk Hatpv. Do all the good you can
Whenever yon hear of a poor widow, orphan
child, or aged man who is in affliction, pay
that individual a visit. Do not hoard up all
you earn ; give a certain portion of your pro
perty to the poor. Never get angry. If you
are slandered or imposed upon, better suffer
a little, than to retaliate and use harsh lan
guage. Be not proud and selfish. Think no
more highly of yourself and your talents than
you do of tho capacities of others. Pay all
you owe. Keep out of debt. Get not entan
gled in the meshes of the law: avoid it as
tho sure gale to ruin. Shun vicious pursuits
and unprincipled associates, Honor the Sab
bath, servo God, nnd be devoted to truth and
religion. Finally, take some useful paper,
pay for it in advance, and lead it attentively ;
and our word for it, you will be happy. Peace
and contentment will smile in your path, joy
dance on your countenance, and every lane
of life before yon will be fraught with bles
sings rich and abundant.
Mexican Miklmex. Ono of the curiosi.
ties of Mexico, is the manner of selling milk;
instead of the neat, white, wooden vessel, or
the spouted tin can, with tho different mea
sures hung upon it, aud the rattling bell cart,
to convey it from place to place with despatch
or an old homespun looking negro packing it
about on his crowned head, we have the ani
mals themselves driven from door to door of
the different regular customers, where they
are milked, and a regular stand, where tran
sient patrons are supplied by milking it into
the vessels in which they take it home. Be
sides a drove of cows, with tho calves all
muzzled, running and bleating after them,
there is also a gang of gnats and asses driven
ulong, that people may suit themselves as to
quality and price, as also their different taBtes
for which there is no accounting.
A Delicate Hint. The Secretary of the
Navy recently received a letter, in a lady's
hand-writing, which enclosed the announce
ment, cut from a newspaper, of the marriage
of a young officer in tho Navy, and a refer
ence to tho twenty-fourth chanter of Deuter
onomy, and the fifth verse, which is as fol
'Wlien a man hath taken a new wife, ho
shall not go out to war, neither shall he be
chorged with any business; but he shall be
free at home one year, and shall cheer up his
wifo which he hath taken."
Very delicately done. It is doubtful if the
Secretary can get over Scripture.
Party Designations. The Hunkers of
New York call the Free Soilers the "loose
dirt" party ; the latter retort, and call the
Hunkers the "tight dirt" party, implying by
the phrase that their corruption ttickt to
them, and soap will not wash it off.

(CP Tavlor Jubilfe. The friends of
Gen. Taylor had quite a Jubilee at this
place, on Thursday last. A splendid en
tertainment was got up for the occasion, at
the Hotel of Capt. Peter Lazarus. The
dinner table, we are informed, was bounti.
fully supplied with every luxury of the
season, got up in the most recherche style.
Several speeches were made and a number
of toasts drank with great cheer and good
spirits. To give eclat to the affair, the
cannon was frequently fired from the River
bank and from the town hill.
K7" Congress will commence its session
on Monday next. The President's message
will he looked for with interest. The ses
sion will terminate on the 4th of March
next, on which day Gen. Taylor will be
inaugurated President of the United States.
The 4th of March coming on Sunday, the
inauguration will be postponed until the
AXXEXATIOX OF Cl'RA.
The rumor that the United States were
again negotiating for the annexation of Cuba
seems to give some of the London editors a
good deal of trouble. They say that the
British Government has no desire to possess
that valuable Island. The sons of Great
Britain are already scattered over forty-two
dependencies of the British Crown. Eng
land and America, they think, have both
as much territory as they can well take
care of. There is some truth in the above,
though pharisaically expressed. When
England once refuses so rich a jewel as
Cuba, we shall begin to think a moral revo
lution is at hand.
AWAY WITH ENSURES.
The Pennsylvaniai., in an article under
the above caption, advises democratic edi
tors to abstain from all censures upon any
portion of the democratic parly, in the
Union, and recommends concession and
conciliation among all. This is certainly
seasonable and excellent advice. We are
glad that our friends of the Pennsylvanian,
have had their eyes opened to the truth,
with a determination to follow the pillar
of light, that has so suddenly broken upon
their vision. Experience, though severe,
generally proves an excellent teacher.
THE GRAND RESIXT.
The Presidential vote, it is now ascer
tained will stand as follows:
Maryland 8 New Hampshire, (!
Massachusetts 12 Ohio 23

North Carolina U Iowa 4
Georgia in Mississippi 6

Whole number of Electors 290
Thus it will be seen there is an equal
division of States, but most of the old and
large States going for Gen. Taylor, gives
him a majority of 3G over Gen. Cass.
Pennsylvania has truly been the ''battle
ground." Without her vote, Gen. Taylor
would have had only 137 electoral votes,
9 less than the number required to elect
him. With Pennsylvania, Gen. Cass would
have had 153, just 7 more than necessary
to elect him. Of the old thirteen original
States all have gone for Gen. Taylor but
Virginia, New Hampshire and South Caro
lina. It is said that Col. Fremont sent to Ceu.
Kearney, just before his death, a conciliatory
message by the hand of Mrs. Fremont.
The Independent Delawarian notices a

any particular except the words "Bank of

which are exceedingly well executed. None
but those who are not familiar with the notes
of the bank could be imposed on by them,
and such persons should be cautious in recei

General Taylor's Reception of the
News of his Election. The Baltimore Sun
has received a despatch through the telegraph
from New Orleans, giving an account of Gen.
Taylor's reception of the news of his elec
"General Taylor was in Baton Rouge when
he heard the result of the election in Penn
sylvania, and enough from other Slates to de
termine, without doubt, the fact that he had
been elected President of tho United States.
He took the fact with perfect composure, ex
hibiting much coolness and deliberation. Ho
left Baton Rouge soon after the result was
known, on board a steamboat, for his planta
tion in Mississippi. While on tho passage
he was accosted by a stranger, a democrat,
who was not aware he was speaking to the
President elect, and they commenced talking
polities, speculating about the election, tho
merits of the candidates, &c. Tho stranger
told him that old Zaek wnssood enough, but
ho did not think him qualified for the high
office of President. He also asked the Gene,
ral if he was a Taylor man, to which ho re
plied : 'Not much of a one, that he had not
voted for him on account of his family, nnd
more especially on account of his old lady
being somewhat opposed to Old Zack going
to Washington.' At this juncture a gentle
man stepped up, accosted the General and
called him by name. The stranger soon
smelt a rat, and after openins his eyes tolera
bly wide, walked off, considerably confused.
Tho General is in good health, nnd looks un
concerned as usual, taking things coolly and

The State of the Markets, t(c.
New Yore, Nov. 25.
The steamship Cambria reached her berth
at 9 o'clock ths morning.
Respecting the potato rot in Ireland, it was
reported the residue of the crop would be
saved, and turn out better than was anticipa
ted. Indian corn, therefore, had moved off
slowly at lower prices. The duty on wheat
has now advanced to 6s per quintal, and that
on flour 3s. 7id. per bbl.
As regards Scotland, tho advices of bad
weather, and that the crops had not been
gathered in quite so well as was believed at
first have tended to strengthen the markets
on the other hand.
The revival of the report that negotiations
and been opened at Madrid for the cession of
Island of Cuba to the United States, has na

ple and government of the United Slates be
as wise as ourselves, they will pause before
they think of adding Cuba to their already
vast unoccupied territories.
Ireland has now subsided into a state of or
dinary tranquility. Isolated outrages, as in
the best of times, are perpetrated in many
parts of the county, and the contest between
the landlord and his starving tenantry is still
waged with unrelenting bitterness, but upon
the general surface of polities there is scarce
ly a ruffle diseernable.
Capitulation of Vienna.
Vienna has at length surrendered to the
Imperial troops, after either clays' siege, on
the 31st ult. Six days were consumed in en
deavoring to bring the Viennese to submis
sion. Several attempts were made by the inhabi
tants to obtain better terms of surrender from
the Imperial general, but all to no purpose.
On the 28th, Windischgratz, therefore, com
menced an attack on the suburbs.
On the 28th the engagement was chiefly
on the southern and eastern sides, while on
tho western the batteries were heard at inter
vals; in the evening, the Ban Jellaehieh had
completely taken the suburb of Wieden.
Many national guards threw down their arms
ami a great many weapons were found in the
canal. The workmen, on tho contrary, dis
played great valor.
No discipline was observed, and is was
therefore conjectured that they had laid aside
their peculiar distinctive works, for the pur
pose of remaining in cog. Not many bombs
appeared to have been thrown into the city.
Between thirty mid forty houses were burnt
down at 11 o'cloek at night. Nothing as yet
was decided upon beyond the victorious ad
vance of the troops.
The inhabitants of the city itself were said
to have raised white flags of truce us early as
the previous evening, w hich however, were
torn down by the operatives. Only a few
she Is were dirown on the evening of the Sih.
As a means to inspire terror, they were di
rected against the University, but a great
number of rockets and shrepnells were thrown
on the following day. On the 29th, at mid
day, the troops were ulready on the glacis, at
a distance of only 200 to 400 steps from the
wall of the inner city. Oil the 29th a truce
was agreed upon which extended to the fol
lowing day at noon ; then the Hungarians,
who had crossed the frontier, made an attack
on the imperial troops, in which they were
assisted by a sortie of the Viennese, but they
were completely defeated, notwithstanding
the various accounts of the capitulation of
V ienna, which part does not seem to admit
of any doubt.
Windischgratz was obliged to advance as far
as the Stephen's Platz, the Viennese having
recommenced a combat the city was bom
barded once more.
On the 31st inst., (Oct. 31st,) tho Hunsari
uiifi, eighteen thousand strong, attacked the
left wing of Windischgratz anil tho rliilit
of Jelliachich's army. Wescnliauser made a
sally upon the gate in the viuciuty of the Red
Tower; the Hungaiiaus, however, were com
pletely routed and driven into the Danube
Windischgratz on the 30th, at 12 o'clock,
sent the following telegraph despatch to Ba

of Vienna, unconditionally submits this day.
My soldiers will enter Vienna to-day." A

The imperial library and a portion of the
palace were soon in flames. The town sub
mitted, and the Burge, the Karthner strasse,
and the Stephens Square were occupied by
the military. A brisk fire was still kept up
upon them from the windows.
The Burg-thor and Karthner-thor were
stormed and battered in by assault. The
students fonght like madmen, and when tho
rest of the city had given in, still defended
themselves in the vicinity of tho Auld, sup
ported by a portion of the workmen. Oa the
1st Nov., they still held out in the Salzgries
On the 3 1st, 500 prisoners were made, and
the same day the Hungarians recrossed the
Leitha and withdrew. The Imperial Gene
ral imposed upon the town several conditions
which were assented to by the Council.
First A large imperial Austrian standard
is to be hoisted above all others upon the St,
Stephen's Church tower, which Aug are to be ;
placed upon r.ll the lines. !
Second All cannon and other inrnlomenU
of war to be surrendered.
Third. All money, treasure, and account
books to be given up.
The Council were given till 8 P. M. of the
36th to assemble, on pain of renewal of the
bombardment. The people, students, and
national guards vied with each other in cast
ing away their arms and in seeking safety in
flight ; so that, when the Croats stormed the
Auld, where the last defence was mado in
lieu of finding it garrisoned by the students,
they immediately encountered a hundred or
more of the armed populace many of whom
fighting desperately and refusing to surrender
were cut down or hung.
The streets in the meantime were stormed
without arms, and the most active leaders
sought safety in all directions, but many of
them will probably bo captured, us a severe
search was ordered, and the gates, w alls and
suburbs are so strictly guarded that no one
can escape, or quit the place without being
