Groin the now York times it was once supposed that while it might be very easy to to fooled by the Bey cupid and be made As Blind As he is and to become subsequently entangled in the Silken Bonds of Matrimony there would always be no endow trouble in getting out again if the bargain did it suit. A lingering scrap four College Virgil tolls us Jac Ilis de census into a scrape sed the bother is to get out again a number of enterprising gentlemen of our City who Are in Tho Law Trade seemed to have turned their special attention towards simplifying this business of getting ont again so far As the marriage question is concerned. A wre constantly observe the publication of notices to the following effect a absolute divorces obtained in any state. Drunk esp desertion neglect to support sufficient cause. No fees until divorce is divorces legally obtained in new York and states where desertion &c., is sufficient cause. No publicity or charge till divorce very Many of these divorce Quot Sui a Are conducted in a manner so exceedingly confidential that Ono of the parties most interested is not informed of the proceedings at All until astounded by the presentation of Tho decree. We Are cognizant of a Chise wherein an estimable lady innocent of All wrong and Igno rant oven of any dissatisfaction on the part of her husband parted with him affectionately at the Steamboat Dock As Sho started on a journey to Seo some friends some hours after in the privacy of her Stato room. Sho found Leisure to examine a paper her husband had handed her at Tho last minute and discovered it to be a copy of a Deere of divorce rendered by an Illinois judge. Before the Steamboat had been six hours gone her late husband had married another woman. Numbers of these confidential divorces Are obtained for unworthy purposes by Tho most rascally Means. Disappointed a a Stone fleets sunk in Charleston Harbor during the War does not appear to have Dono any injury. An English vessel drawing eighteen and a half feet bus entered Tho porec loaded with railway Iron. Tho deepest Laden vessel that had previously entered Drew but seventeen feet. Tho frantic alarm which led to lord rub3ell�?Ts impertinent interfere no in that matter was As groundless As it was injurious. Spall and its rebellions. A Scarlet on writes to Tho Boston journal a Isabella ii., the present Queen is the last remaining Bourbon Sovereign in Europe. All the rest have been bowled out in one Way or another. Whether Isabella is to go out at the present time remains to to seen. This movement has been planned at Burrell by general Prim who has been plotting a there with other refugees during the past year. In All other insurrections and revolutions there has been no thought of upsetting the Sovereign but the ministry which had direction of affairs for the time being. General Prim in his proclamation does not aim directly at the overthrow Quot of Isabella but we Aro informed by the correspondents at Madrid that such is Tho cry of Tho peasantry in the disaffected districts a cry never before heard in Spain. Tho Queen is now about 37 years of age having been born on Tho tenth of october 1830. Sho succeeded to the throne when three years of age on Tho death of her father was proclaimed of age when Sho was 13, and was married when 16 to her Cousin. Sho Lias five children. The oldest a daughter Isabel was born in 1851, and is consequently 16 years of Oge. Tho Queen it is said is very desirous of making a match for her with Prince Humbert prospective King of Italy but there is Little probability of such an Alliance. Isabella a year ago had an Able Man st Tho head of her ministry of Donnell who was moderately Liberal. There was an insurrection As your readers will remember which he at once crushed. But the Queen believed that Austria was going to win Tho War then commencing that absolutist ideas were again to to in the ascendant that Italy would be broken up and Prussia humbled and though. Of Donnell had Given her such signal service and was acceptable to the people she dismissed him and put Narvaez m his place. The world knows very Little of what and then we had accounts of the execution of an individual but in truth there was the counterpart of what is going on in Mexico at the present. Time. I met not Long since a gentleman who was in Spain at the time. He said that for several mornings in succession he heard reports of musketry and at length took occasion to ask what it meant. A to it is Only the soldiers shooting the Fellows who were in the insurrection Quot was the reply Given with As much coolness As if it was Tho putting out of the Way of a score or two dogs. Hundreds wore shot condemned after a mockery of a military trial Tho priest brought in confession Given Tho sacrament administered Tho marching out to Tho Square a a Volley of musketry and so morning after morning dispatching a half dozen at a time before breakfast. ,. The people of Spain Are not ready for a thorough revolution. The masses have not Felt Tho despotic Power of the Saeou directly that has fallen rather. Upon prominent individuals. Some of Tho Nobles have been shot though there Aro enough left. The entire population of Tho kingdom is about 16,000,000, but of these there Are 82 Dukes 722 Marquise 588 counts 74 discounts and 67 Barons. There Are about 500,000 persons belonging to the nobility All of whom Are too proud to work. Some of them Are very Rich but More quite poor and not ashamed to beg of for Eigners. By the census of 1857 there were 3,800,000 Able bodied men in the kingdom-r-125,000 of them priests 241,000 belonging to the army 478,000 of the nobility who had 260,000 body a servants to wait upon them. It required 28,000 men to collect the Revenue and there were some 60,000 students lawyers and other professional men making a total 1,200,000 Able bodied men living apart from All Mann Fustur ing or agricultural labors. Yet notwithstanding this multitude of drones the country hag been rapidly advancing in the Alt As might be shown from the statistics of the last budget. A Quot a a a a a a the san Antonio a and Monterey stage Texas correspondent knowing the. Interest we take in All that concerns the a do Ings and welfare of our his state a Calls our attention to the Enterprise shown in the a Tab. Lish ment of a regular monthly stage line Between san Antonio Texas and Monterey Mexico. This line is our correspondent states Baa. Beon leaking regular monthly trips since last. May leaving on the 1st and returning on the 22d of cach month and proving to be a reliable conveyance for passengers and express matter its Success and repute in this latter respect is the More to the credit of Tho proprietors in the fact that they have to rely solely upon their own Energy tact and capital having nonfat government contract or Large mexican allowance to prop their Enterprise. Next month the stage will Mako semimonthly trips leaving san Antonio on the 1st and 16th, and Monterey on the 8th and 24th, and running through in seven Days. The Lino has already Dono much towards restoring traffic and travel Between Texas and Northern Mexico. Messes. Knapp amp Munzenberger of san Antonio Are the agents.

The child returned saying a your a is standing up straight in Tho Burn floor in a minute Tho daughter was at the barn Aud beheld through an opening in. The door her father miss Udod by Tho neck. Forcing an entry co through Tho door she at once tried to release the body but her strength was insufficient.
