There are several cases of divorce nowj pending before the Legislature. One of; Dr. Win. Weslcarl of Philadelphia, pray-; ir.g- for a divorce from Ins wife, one of a Mr. Elliott, praying fur similar relief, and one from Edwin Forrest the tragedian, and a citizen of Ncv York Suite, asking the Legislature of Pennsylvania, to break, by the fiat of their enactments, the iron cord which binds two unwilling hearts, that of himself and his wife Catherine. Now what the merits of their case are I know not exactly, but I trust the members of the Legislature will pause, before they pass bills of such moment as these, and be well convinced, before they lend them selves, to the unhallowed business of striking- down the most sacred relation which can exist between the sexes a relation to which all others are but secondary.
