I) THE'LAW COURTS. A Complicated Case of Bigamy and Divorce. Mr. 11. TV. Bishop. Appointed Assignee of the Sfnio Insurance Company —Bankruptcy Notes. Jane E. Jllson Is punblng an application In too Su perior Court for alimony from hot husband, Amos E. Jllson, from whom she. prays to-be divorced on tho ground of his having committed bigamy in marrying her, and,of bis not being willing to support her, although bo Is engaged In a lucrative business and car rying on speculations .with unvarying success. Com plainant avers that she is 54 years of age, frail, and delicate of form, and often sick, and requiring the consolation of a kindred spirit, which, she avers, Jll son Is not. Defendant's story;-Is equally pitiful* Die ago Is 63 years, nud bis weight, previous to too persistent persecutions of tho delicate Mrs. Jllson, , was 910 pounds, hut, since tho Institution of legal proceedings against him by the complainant, and her unvarying refusal to again pay his board, this manly bulk ban dwindled to 100 pounds, another sad proof of tho power of disap pointed love. Ho domes the Insinuation (hat ho Is engaged to lucrative business, but assorts that bo Is obtaining a living In selling pencils, penholders, inks, mucilage, etc., to business men ot their oillccs, and that trade is so dull Just now that tho idea of his allowing complainant a separate maintenance Is elm-, ply ridiculous, If, however, complainant would again lend the charm of her presence to Ids homo, hqcould and would support her in a becoming manner, and regain those fifty pounds of fiosh, which the. flckle’ono has, by her cruel behavior, deprived him of. Defendant denies tho bigamy. Ho acknowledges hav ing married a Mrs, Wilbur, soma years since, but hav ing ascertained that one John B. Wilbur, bur husband, - was alive, sound ami breathing, bo loft her, and mar ried his present wife, under the belief, backed up by a lawyer's opinion, that (bo marriage vrltb Mrs. Wilbur was a nullity. This case la a labyrinth of legal and Illegal mar tinges and second marriages, ami widows and widow ers are so Inextricably Jumbled together (hat it would require the acumen and experience of a Weller Br. to dis criminate clearly in (ho matter. Defendant nrgcs’tlmt complainant, with tho gushing ardor of . ouly G3 Bum mers, Is longing td rush to his arms and. enfold tho ICO-pound remnant of bis pristine robustness in a wife's embrace; but a troublesome sou, by a former husband, one James Newburn, by threats and coercion restrains her from following too dictates of bor feelings; and, worse still, is, with bis wife and mother, using nod enjoying tho furnituro which was purchased by defendant for bla own aud Mrs. Jllson's use.

Tho Apollo Musical Club, of this city, closed its re* markably successful season of concerts to Its associate mdmbcra Tuesday evening at Standard Hall. Notwith standing the extrema boat, tho hall was crowded with one of tho most brilliant audiences over assembled in this city. Tho programme was partly composed of ' favorite numbers which tho Club had sung before among them Schumann's “ Dreamy Lake,” Mangold’s “ Forest,” llublnslcin’s extremely difficult “ Hun garian Wlno Song,” and Qirschncr'a “ Beware.” Tho new numbers wore oil from Mendelssohn, Including his “lihiuo Wine Song,” “Serenade,” “ Farewell,” and the majeatlo and brill iant double chorus “Scmolo’s highborn Son,” from the “Antigone,” In tho production of which tho Germania Maenuerchor paid tho Apollo Club tho com pliment of taking ono of tho purls, also singing In tho double quartette. It Is needless to speak of the high degree of excellence manifested by the Club, except that their severe study and training show themselves in an improvement every time they appear. This was specially manifested In thosplrltod and expressive way in which they attacked tho Itublnsteln number, which is tho tele uofr of every society which has yet undertaken to master Hu dimcultlca or ouduro tho fearful demands It makes upon tho voice. The superb music of tho “Antigone” was also road In a masterly stylo, and, although there was once or twice a lUtlo sbaklness in some of the moro Intricate pas sagos, It was not enough to mar the general effect, Tho soloists of tho evening were Mr. Foltz. Mr Llebling, and Miss Ella While. Mr. Foltz sang a now and very creditable composition by Mr. Ltobllng “Tho Spring Is Late,” which, wo understand. wUI shortly be published, and Schubert's grand song “Impatience,” Wo have expressed our opinion of Mr Foltz’s admirable method of binging too many times to need to do It again, Mr. Lidding may well con gratulate himself upon having his song introduced under such excellent auspices, air. llebling, the pianist, made his first important public appearance, playing tho Liszt “ Faust Fantasia” and some Chopin numbers.

Tho tbroc-<;ornorcd Great \Vcslorn Telegraph Com piny war, niter an Interregnum of fancied peace, has broken out worse than'over. - John 0. Hilton, tho peti tioner for tho bankruptcy of tho Company, now peti tions the United mates District Court to restrain Tor wllilgor and Hoove proceeding with tbclr accounting before Master in Chancery .Adams, under the decree of tho Cook' County Circuit Court. Ho shows that tho telegraph ’ company was declared bankrupt on tho 20th of April last, on his petition; that there is a bill pending,.ln,Cook County Circuit Court, in which TorwilUgcr is complainant and Bolah Hoove arid others defendants ; In which, after other orders, an accounting was decreed touching tho state of accounts between said Heovo and sold Company; tbo Oompaqy insisting lhat'Rccvo is Indebted to it lu a considerable sum; that no such account, neither hois testimony In conncctlon.wlth such account, been yot taken by the Master in Chancery; that the District Court has acquired jurisdiction of all assets of . sold bankrupt Company, and tho cl alp™ that aro tho subject of accounting will' havo to pass through tho hand of tho. Assignee lu Bankruptcy, when he Is appointed; that tho proceedings in accounting are in violation of tho understanding entered Into before tho District Court, whereby tho usual warrant of seizure . was not issued In ordinary course In order to give the bankrupt an opportunity to file his bill of review with tho United Btates'GircuiC Court; that such bill Of xc- Tlewhas 'not been presented, and that tho time has come for, and tho circumstances warrant, this applica tion to this Court for an Injunction restraining any further proceedings In accounting in tho Stato Courts. ‘ . Inropiy to this petition, Terwllllger makes answer, and says that tho bill in chancery m tbo Cook County • 'Circuit Court, referred to, in which ho and others are complainants, Is not pending, but has reached a dual decree that tho accounting ordered by tho Court Is . not a proceedingagainst the bankrupt, but simply tho carrying out of a decree issued in connection with pro ceedings __ commenced - long • before ■ bankruptcy was thought of; that sold accounting. is for the purpose of discovering the balance of money, If any, duo by said Reeve to tho.Company: and that ho knows of no reason ■ why ho should sit still and allow his interests os o stockholder to, suffer, ho-having already, obtained a decree, because other parties subsequently took tho Company Into the .District Court. Ho affirms, further, that "tho whole proceeding on tho part of said Hilton is a plain and transparent fraud, conceived and continued with a view to old said Gage and Reevo, to defeat tho said de cree of tbo said Circuit. Court, and to' prevent re spondent from getting the fruits of the order and de cision of the sold Supremo Court, and ought to be de feated, and will be defeated by the Court, and that tho whole constitutes an apparent and obvious scheme and plan to use tho process of this Court to defeat and baffio Justice. That no collision of Jurisdiction can occur, or is likely to occur, in consequence of the' adjustment and settlement of said accounts; but be cause said occount Is not Bottled, and while It is not settled, this petitioner and hls .co-cousplrators in tbo scheme of wrecking said Company—whose claims arc based upon paper fraudulently Issued to said Reeve to said Gage, etc.,.etc.—aro at Üborty to allege and false- • ly sot up that sold paper was Issued for tbo benefit of tho Company, and in payment of a debt duo to sold Reeve.” .i, . . - Further, that the proceedings instituted by him are not paid for by tho bankrupt Company,but are brought in the Interest of himself and other stockholders ; that said petition for review bos been in Judgo Drum mond's hands for moro than a week, and that all delay Is due to the petitioner and his counsel; that it Is of importance, under any and all circumstances, that tho go on; bo that. If it should be found that tho account is not as it appears on Us face to ho. Gage, or whoever is liable, may bo decreed to make payment, for tho benefit of the eelato and all parties: that Gage has tried to delay said accounting by evading service, and Bbellors himself behind the said proceedings of Hilton: that said Gage has openly boasted that ho would bankrupt tho Cora* pany if tho State suit was prosecuted, and that this bankruptcy proceeding Is in pursuance of such threat; that respondent's intention, end that of tho stock holders, Is "not to lot their pockets bo picked by tho little Credit Mohlller ring of this Companythat they firmly confide in and roly on tho purity of tho Judi ciary and tho Jusilco ot their cause, and believe that the petitioner and his friends may learn that the Bankruptcy Court Is a poor Bholter for such miscon duct, and tho machinery meant by Congress and the nation to moke a fair distribution-of an Insolvent's effects among bis creditors, cannot bo perverted to the purpose of robbing Ills estate, or'protecting those who by tho State .Court are adjudged to have defrauded It in the possession of their ill-gotten gains. And he prays that the accounting ho not restrained. The answer of tho bankrupt to said Hilton’s peti tion shows thflt tho lino and property ortho Com pany are valued at $200,000, and. as they are informed and believe, can bo sold for: that amount; that the judgments upon which said Hilton petitioned the Court to adjudicate tho Company, bankrupt amount to $21,000; that the ' Commercial National Bank owns Judgments amounting to SIJJ,OOQ ; that tho bankrupt bas a good defense to such Judgments ; that the debts outside said Judgments do not exceed $0,000; that when said Hilton's petition in bankruptcy was filed, the bankrupt was endeavoring to settle with Selah Bcovo; that an accounting Is proceeding ; and that if It is permitted to proceed, groat delay will bo the result. - EVANSTON. meeting of tho Philosophical Association-* Session of the Board of Trustees—Literary Entertainment.

To the Editor of The Chicago Tribune : 8m: Tho prosont stato of affairs In regard (o tho Sunday liquor law makes It, I think, a very appropri ate time for a fow remarks regarding Saturday half holidays. Tho “Puritans’ l say you shall not mikko Sunday a day of recreation | it is tho Lord's day, and must bo kopt holy. I would ask, What 6lh(i' day have our employed classes for recreation 7. Tho hours of our clerks aud bookkeepers are from 7 In the morning till 0 at night, with one hour’s intermission ut boon, all tho week round. Is It to bo womlorcd at that Sunday should bo solzod upon as tho only llmo in which wo can relax from this terrible strain? Has not' Chicago grown metropolitan enough to allow hor employes onc-half day a week for themselves? I would make an honorable exception of our wholesale boot and shoo houses, who all closo at 3 o’clock Saturday: hut this is only a partial and a half-way measure. Lot all our loading business bouses, our mammoth dry-goods establishments, clone business at noon on Saturdays. Tho majority will soon follow theiroxamplo. ' Open-air concerts are given on Saturday afternoon, from 3too, in Lincoln Park; but of what bouolU aro they to ua 7 Only tho “upper" classes can attend them; wo must grind away at our desks. Chicago claims to load in civilization; she claims to bo metropolitan ; and yet you cau walk into hor ware houses at 8 o’clock Saturday evening, and see hun dreds of Jaded men at workjjomplollug their sixtieth hour of labor for* the‘week. Ten hours per diem of clerking, especially of bookkeeping, shows its results' in tho pale face, the trembling hand, aud nervous manner which aro characteristic of this class of men. Of course, giving a Saturday half-holiday would not entirely do away with this unhappy stato of affairs, but it would bo a stop in tho right direction. I would earnestly, on behalf of thousands of men, ask Tux TniuUNtt to advocate it. Excuse mo running over such space, but the subject is of such vital Inter est to mo and my class that It runs away with mo un wittingly. -Respectfully, A UoottMXPKC, OiUQjUK), Juno Hj lUTd, • V. ®» oov. irrornorr/ “'' ’ Btitk 07 Louisiana, Exxotmv* Ornofi,) _ Nrw Oblrahil, May 30,1873. / TothtPeopUqfLonMann: ’ * ' i.. to° duly elected but deposed Governor of ixtals - Bol 5 1 ?’ h 7 tbo Intervention of the 6,1(1 °*6cbUvo authorities of tbo ' I ra y duty, view of the recent proolMnallon of tbo President roUtlyo to Louisians -connsol - d - r08 " jvords of advlco and ExecuUvo, in the face of tbo-report of too Committee of Uip.UnlUa.

Tlao Sad Ending of a Very Eventful Career* From the St. Lonia Olobe, June 3. .. sues Loo Hudson died at 8;30 o’clock yesterday morning, at tho St. Clair Hold. Tho sad Occident which occurred on tho 10th ult., at Wakefield's Grand Opera-House, whore herself and horse tumbled from tho lofty framework of tho mlulaturo mountain to tho' hard surface of tho stage, and which was tho moans of killing her accomplished mnro, “Black Doss,” Injured Miss Hudson more norloualy than sho permitted her self to believe, at tho time. Being a woman of moro than ordinary physical power, tho effects of tho fall were not apparent at first, and Miss Hudson appeared tho same evening in “Mnzoppa,” amid tho cheers of the oudlence. Tho next day. however, her sufferings bo. come intense, aud she has been confined to her bod moat of tho time since. On Thursday last, inflamma tion of tho bowels set In, and death came to her re lief yesterday morning, os stated above. It is barely * possible that if, whon the accident occurred, Miss Hud son hod refrained from taxing hot strength In appear ing In tho ovealne’a performance, she might still bo living. Tho death of her beautiful mare, which she purchased In Baltimore about five years ago, and for which sho professed a strong attachment, seemed to weigh heavily on her spirits, and sho doubtless con sidered that her hopes' of finding a substitute were never to bo realized, and her appearance os “ Mazon l>a,” upon which she relied for support, was to bo to her thenceforward but a memory. Miss Hudson was bom In Leesburg, Va„ on.tho 2°d 'of March, IBM, and was, therefore, 30 years of ago Her real name was Julia V. Uodson. Her professional career began whon sho was only 12 years of ago. in tho City of Washington, where hUo appeared sa a vo calist. Hho subsequently became attached to Oblariul’s circus, with which she traveled over tho country, oc cupying various positions, among others that of man-' agor. Ton years ago she began playing “ Mazoppa ” her first appearance being made at tbo Old Bowery In NewYorkOUy, At that time, Kate Vanco, Kate Fisher and many others mado a specialty of tho part, but Miss Hudson' made 'a hit In the same rolo, and, traveling through the country, succeeded In gaining both wealth aud reputation. Sho had twlco narrowly escaped in jury during performances; on ono occasion two ribs wore broken by a fall, but her recuperative powers wore such that she was 111 but a short Umo, Miss-Hudson has boon married twlco. Her first husband was Charles Backus, o negro minstrel per former, whom she married In San Pranciaco, They did not get along harmoniously,‘and a divorce was procured. Her second matrimonial experience was galuod.with John Ilobluson, to whom sho was married In Vicksburg. Tho relations of tho parties wore not of tho pleasantest nature, and sho left iHm about four years ago. It Is said that Robinson died not long since, ° MJsb Hudson owned n bouse and lot !n Baltimore, but died intestate. Her remains will bo convoyed to tbat city on Wednesday, in obedience to her instruc tions to Miss Eva West, a young lady who bas boon ber companion for a few years past, and who has lov ingly cared for her during tho illness whloh preceded ber death. * An Elopement Case* ■From tho Iluffalo Commercial, May 31. 'We stated yesterday that ono Alonzo Tildon has boon arrested as a deserter from tho United States Army, by Special Ourtin, of No. 3, and sent to Port Porter. It appears there is quite an interesting story attached to tho caso: Tho wife of ono Frank Franco, an elderly man.-liv ing at Aurora, 111., In February last doped with a young man named Alonzo Tildon, alios Alonzo Thomas. Tho runaway pair also earned off S6OO and somo furniture belonging to Mr-Franco, who ever since that time has boon following tho guilty couple. It was ascertained, early this week, that Alonzo and Mrs. Franco—^who, by tho way, Is 40 years old— uero living at black Hock, and that tho former was employed in a saw-mill. Mr. Franco camo hero with OlUeor Crow, of Troy, and • the assistance of Special Ourtin of No. 3 was procured. After two days* Investigation of tho case, the oflicors ascertained that Tildcn. or Thomas, as ho then called himself, bad, oh tho tilth of May, 1871, deserted from Company “ll’> Fourth United States Infantry, then stationed in Ar kansas.- Ho was accordingly arrested and taken to No. 3 Station. Tho wronged husband was soon in at tendance, and fully Idoutillcd tho prisoner ns tho ono who had robbed him of his wife. Mr. France, as might bo supposed, was qulto holllgorunt, and bogged hard to Is) allowed to enter tho offender's coll and “mash” him. This favor, however, it was thought best to re fuse. Subsequently Tildon was taken to Fort Porter and thoro locked up until ho shall bo returned to his regiment. On Thursday night, after the events above men tioned bad passed, Mr. Franco went to black Hook, to boo his unfaithful wife, and at Arst tho meeting was a stormy ono. Before long, however, a reconciliation woa effected, and both agreed to “forgive end forgot" as far as tho past was concerned. liloliig on floor* To ffte Editor of the Xeto York Tribune .* Tho rocout death of Prof. Liebig reminds mo of a conversation whloh I had with him only about three mouths since at Munich, Borne time previous.

Joseph Knott an oldlndy living In this city, and nearly 70 years of ogo, tho following account of Uapt.

Ho was ono of tho Iteguo River Indians, and belonged to tho tribo then located on Cow Crook. She noticed that ho appeared to boon active, keen, ahrowd-looklug boy,- aud with tho - consent ; of her husband took him to ralap, with whom he remained several years. As soon as tho boy was assured that they Intended to keep him, ho Insisted on haring a “ Boston ” name, as ho called it, and wished to bo named after tho boat look- - lug of Mrs. Knott’s children. This being appreciated by tho mother, sho decided - to name him after her son—thole ages, apparently, being- about tho - same—and this son was J. Knott, bolter known ■ as Jack Knott, of saloon famo. The uoys grow up to gether, and many wore tho days they spent In tho sports of tho Chase, Qu ono occasion,. after ho- had • been with them somo time, ho became offended bo couso,ho was told to Icavo tho room, and loaded his rifle with tho Intention of shooting Levi Kuott, but •was discovered In season to prevent his designs.
