DAILY MERCUBY wednesday1, DEC 24, 1873. EAST DiTOBOES. 4 The manner in which divorces are sometimes obtained in the different States is adi^ff-ajrasto the Union, and a blot upon so- ciety. The laws of Texas, we blush to say, are, by far, too lax on this point. Any man or woman who will come into court and state in his or her pleadings that life With his wife of her hnsband, as the case may be, is "insupport- able," and thep, on t^e witness- stand, swear to it, is entitled to a divorce under the law. The Statute so reads. The law needs amending and making stricter, and we hope the Fourteenth Legislature will take the matter in hand. There is but one ground (that of adultery) in sacred law that holds good for a divorce, and that should be the only one known to the laws of man. If the records of some Of the cases which occur in the courts were to be made pUbKe, it would evidence the em- ployment of means which should cause the cheeks of decent peo- ple to tingle with shame, at the perv...
