Anneal Record of Business in the Courts. Civil and Criminal Trials In the Superior, Circuit and Re corder’s Courts. StJffIMAEY OF CASES* How the Different Courts are Or gasized. fioeord of Z>ivorcos> Tho business of litigation In the city of Chicago and the county of Cook is conducted In six courts of record; by seven dodges, ono Recorder, three hundred and for„y-nlne attorneys and counsellors at Uw, one hundred and thirty-two notaries, one prosecutor, and one Sheriff. The amount of busi ness these have performed la developed by the knowledge that, within ten rears, upwards of fifty thousand causes bare been Institntcd In our courts. The of the Interests Involved l*tx rord compute, for in no city, perhaps are so great a variety©! questions submitted to trial by the county. Every conceivable species of case —admiralty, chancery and common law, civil and criminal—seems, within the past year, to have b<tn litigated here, Involving life, liberty and property. 1 he courts which conduct this business are * The Circuit Court of the United States. Tho District Court of ih» United States. The Circuit Court of Cook County. The Superior Court. The County Court The Recorder’s Court. THE US RED STATES COCTtTS have jurisdiction in the counties of Hancock, Mc- Donough. Teona, Woodford, Livingston and Iro quois, and all the counties north of them. In pur' of a Congressional enactment, approved Febinary 13th, 1853. Its business, unless aajlt is transacted in Chicago, can hardly be said to be long to us. its statistic*, however, are properly included in the account-of the litigation con ducted In this city. The officers of these courts arc as follows: Pjetldlng Judge—David D. Davis, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court. Associate Judge—'Thomas Drummond. Clerk—William 11. Bradley. AsslsJantjCJtrk—E. A. Drummond, Marshal—J. Kassel Jones. Deputy Marshals—Ausu«Uis B. Coles and Par nell MUQEQTt. Baiilua—Spencer B. Webb and 8. U Tonrtel lotte. District AUonvy—Jesse O. Norton. Asslrtant—L. If. Bonteile.

Hie ClrcnU Conti of Cool; Coast; is (he old Constitutional tribunal. la the youth of Chi cago and Cook Count; —that la lo Bay„wbcn Chi cago wa« sot, and when Its business was not dieamed of to lie a thins even ot the future— when our Convection waa at Kaskreki* UVa* provided that the judicial power of the State should be rested In one Supreme Court, and each Uif-nor comte as the General Assembly might fiom time to time order and establish. This was done in convention, August 26th, 1816, and of our independence the rear 43. Then was to Cook Connty. The Je-iel lion under that Constitution found favor In the Couv-ctlon of 1847. when it was pro* nded that there should be “Circuit and County Courts,” as courm of record, and to (his date this court has stood struggling with business, only relieved by the actron subsequently taken, of necessity, under the Clause providing that Inferior local courts, of civil and criminal jurisdiction maybe established by the General Assembly in the dlles of this State. The Jurisdiction of this court is consequently without limit, it has Its chancery and common law aides, albeit there be butene Judge, it has also criminal aa well as civil jurisdiction. It has Us peers in Importance, but side of the Supreme Court it lias no eoperior. As at present constituted its officers are as fol lows : judge—Erastns S. Williams. Clerk—William L. Chinch. Assistant Clerks—W. K Grcenlcaf, George p Blanke. Janies Mairay, Fred. Cole, and J. F Waite (Recording Department), state’s Attorney—Charles 11. EeeJ. Baillfis— U. 11. Scharenuerg, O. G. Thompson, and John D. Crnver. Master in Chancery—John Woodhridgc, Sr. In the office of thus court one change has taken place daring IrGfl. Stephen Beck, during nine years the writer of its record, departed this l*fe during the mouth of October, lie died of the then prevalent disease—cholera. sen muon cookt. Next In imnortance, and, by law and perhaps in Its distribution ol business, of equal importance in the legal affairs of our county and city, Is the Superior CourtofChlcaeo. It originated in the Cook County Court, winch was established In 1&15, the coclinoatiuu of which was authorized by the Constitution of l&iS. This was a court having no charccry Jurisdiction, and being thus I'mlted Id power, and being presided over by one Judge om>, It Impartially served to lighten the harden which fell upon oar local Judiciary. In view of this fact, at the Legislative session of 1333 an act passed “to create a court known as the Superior Court of Cnlcig*.” composed of three Josuccu with monthly terms and full Jurisdiction. Ihis court now baa the following olficcrs: Chief Justice—John M. Wilson. Associate Justices—Joseph E. Gary and John A. Jameson. Clerk—Tbomaa B. Carter. Deputy Clerks—U. U. Hawley, John H. Batten. Assistants—James H. Cole. Henry Kane, Frank la. Graham, M. P. Brady, and Marshal Waite. Bailiffs—Oliver B. Cbeeabro, Edward Langley, Thomas J. Pearsons, and Albert W. Edwards. Masters in Chancery—lra £L 6cou, Ulrasx F. Mather. couitrr count. The Connty Court oi Cook is perhaps, in regard to its special Jurisdiction, of most immediate im port to all the people. In Its care of the widows and utphans it stands alone, subject only to the light of appeal, a right which pertains in all our courts, oicoutso. Of the settlement of, and adju dication’ upon, estates, it has almost exclusive control. It hs a conn of the Constitution, p is ecssed of summary power, which too frequently has to be exercised. The present officers of this Conti are: Judge—James B. Bradwcll. Public Administrator —J. Rosenthal. Clcik—E. b. bilumon. Rtcoid Clerk—Norman T. G&sseUe. Asruunt Clerk—Joseph Poliak, IJaUlß—liciTscr B, Galpin. One chance has taken place In the eordnet of the affairs of the Court durine the year. Mr. Wentworth Fleiger, domtc three years the rccord vnU*rot the Court, reurea from nia chair to re same the practice of his prolessioo. At the termi nation of bis term or service, last December, he received the complimentary notice or the Court, es-ablisbtd upon that record which he bad,during ao long a time, kept. ntooßDsn’s cocnr. Ibo Recorder's Court of Chicago has a more recent origin. It first oecame legal by an act of 1853, when to II wss given jurisdiction concurrent with that of the Circuit Court in all criminal c#*e#, except treason ard murder, cud of civil cases where the amount In controversy should not exceed ore hui.drfd dollars. At this time tbe tills of the presiding officer was established as tee “ Hecoraei'* of Chicago. Subsequently, however, oy the act of 1855, it w&a enacted that this, aa well as similar local courts In other cities, should be possessed of concurrent Juris diction with Circuit Courts except in cases of treason and murder, and with provisions prevent ing the exercise of the right to Issue the high pre rogative writs of chancery Jurisdiction, except upon notice. As at pie#tut constituted the officers of this Cour: arc: Recorder—Evctl Van Bnrcn. Clerk—Daniel O'Hat a. Deputy Clerk—Charles Loding. Aartstant— * nstln Do.-le. Bailiffs— U. M. Merrill, B. B. Tattle and Ast Williams. SBBVET OPCWIIi BCSIKESS. Tho civil bn*tno«B of these several court* bas varied much within the few past yean. In tho yeurp ana IS5$ there was a pressure of litiga tion bo great as to form the excuse or reason for reorganizing that which bas since been known as the Superior Court, \ car by ycarlneaco court, however, this business slackened ofl omil the Close of the war. and aecarcltyof fees made clerks and lodges look despairingly out for their better time. People were during those years too busy mak ing money to be walling for processes of law to aid in the collection ot debt* on which no statute .of limitation would run until the gathering In of Fiefcntgreenbackawvs ended by the Withdrawal om (beheld of the soldiery, some paid debts wHch were pot larg>\ and of perhaps doubtful le gality, rather than to be brought into court, and all bad too mneb to adenJto to be disptrlne about iriites. With tho end of war. however, has commenced a small harvest for the member* of the bar, and 'heir brief* arc again becoming much more numerous, as I* exhibited In the following report of the number of rases instituted during the u-u y. ars ending thu evening of December 31, l*«; CASES XM TEE TXAtt*.

November Dice inter Total. As will be seen hr the tables we bare presented, applications for divorces are largely increasing la oar coarts, and it would aeeui as tbonch iho breaking op of the marriage contract should ba made more difficult than cow. Persons who are married, ought at least to be enabled to know the tact, and jet under our pres ent t-jMem in regard to divorces, there are many men and not a few women, now married who are unaware of the fact of their uomatlng. Oi old the poets tang that lore cannot die. 1 be law-writer! told nr that the marriage relation was not only the most pure, box should be the most enduring, The sages, patriarchs and law. given of ancient days protected the institution. Notwithstanding the caprices and hazards attend ing the matrimonial state, marriage has been, us- Ul recently, regarded as the safest ami happiest condition of life, and the foundation of rectitude In communities. All this is now changed, not Krtapabythe direct actor legislation, but as eresultofawantof stringency In that legisla tion. Coder the Constitution of ISIS, the Legislature bi< nr tally made of itself a sort of buprerae Court, for the purpose of Impairing the validity of marriage contracts, it made an omnioas bill, castjutotl tho names of contentious women and vtould-bc disenthralled ram, and with or without {generally without) evidence, upon the ip at dlxi* of some io»crc*tod member, dissolved the tie matrimonial which existed between weary people thicugboultbe £tate. The assumed power was constantly abn*ed,-ahd the eSoils of maty men wero directed to tbe changes made In the descent cf property and otherwise by this action, the tvstem received a check, when some mem ber of the Le" Mat-re, the one party to a contract continued la force for a quarter of a century, re turned to bis home to find himself, In part by his own vote, a divorced mai. Bo was speedily re married and Ills ext eriooce was not lo*t upon tntc legislators. In !?-*> Douglas procured a stflß to I*c put to legislative action in this regard. Oofll Henry Wcgprayed that he bo divorced from hisl wife Eunice. The petition went to the committee of which Douglas was a member, and npoc it he reported ” that it is uncohstilntional and foreign to the dalles cl legislation, tor the Legislature to giant hills of divorce.” Tbe report was adopted, and divoiccs came no more in omnibus bills from the Senate and House. _ ~ •jh- law courts on 'he chanceiT side now took a hard and in ISIS it was enacted that Impo tence, b’icamy, adultery, wilful desertion during two yeats.extreme and repeated cruelty, habitual drunkenness, and conviction for Infamous crime, ••hould constitute causes for divorce. In the Con stitution of tS-Ifi this power was confirmed in the courts and since then ft constant stream of petitions have been filed and acted upon, with very rare exceptions, n decree being granted. An examination of old and mnsty records to the mpre recent and more Eosderon* ionics of the prerent day, dcvclopes cl one instance of a refusal to grant tbe order of separation. Bow much of this business baa been done maybe gathered from the ststemout that daring the last yiaroue infevery t wo hundred and thirty-five families has ceased to exist as a family 3be h-glatativc enactment seems to be ample; collusion seems to be guarded against; trials term to he provided for, and a residence seems to he required. It would hardly seem that other provisions oflaw are needed, out the fictions ol law are plentiful under the statute, and there are probably bm ten cccrcrs gran led which might not be overset It there were not too frequently that very collusion, which prevents the reruloo of the proceedings at nul prim. Defaults are entered, and billj taken pro conftaao, upon proof . 7.100 .18,606 .55,571 53 J S- as £ n - w s • of publication, frequently made la obafure jour- I cau. A rhort time since a wealthy Individual, I nominally residing here, but a resident in fact or i anuihet biale, published a paper In which to hide hi* notice to Ins wife, and sue learned only when the decree bad been renaered, that she was a fem me eole. Taken as confessed the bill goes to a master, and in • eomo instances the process has been thoa, as may be seen 1:1 many a court recoid. At ten o'clock default ct.lrron and bill confessed with reference. At twelve the witness having been In wailing,ba* t49 * 'idert, and on Uie comlnc in of the conn at two o'clock, tne report has been confirmed and decree rendered At three o'clock the “ pleas of the conn” have found their way into the pocket of the discontented one, the teea hare been paid np and one tamUy leu has existed. Perhaps a more filtered mode of proceeding is for the parties to separate and xolhl the term of desenlon required. The bill being now brought, the defesdeat comes into court, enters his or her appearance, and makes no answer, when the will it taken pro confitto and the thing la accomplished. If la such a coarse there he not collusion, there of t certainty is agreement. We hare not at hand the data to enable na to state In exactly how many cases these loose courses bare been taken, bout Is anotzccabls tact that only one case, tbal of Ton Glahn rs. Von Gi&hn, has been daring the year 1866, litigated in open court. Ihe number of divorcee applied for and granted daring the year 2865 was: Divorces applied for .375 Divorcee granted 374 By toe statistical tabic already presented we find that there were, in the year 1866, Divorces applied fOr 33t Divorces granted 804 tbowlngan iocreaieof 49 over the number In the preceding year.

TimtTrmr- Amonc the unmerona questions have come no before the Council danpg the year, first and foremost may be classed that of the Lake Tunnel. Dnriug the progress of the work, Uic contractors have asked for an increase of price over the contract as originally made, and *uo tor accommodation in the shape z>f advances. Tbo Connell has met the contractors m a spirit of lib erality and faintest, which, now that the work is almost completed, may be reflected upon with sat w fiction. ~. EITXB TCWSZLS, The next question in point of importance Is perhaps, that of a tonne! under the river.

In the early part ot the vcarußlle was selected and purchased, out since then many Aldermen have been dissat isfied with the selection, and numerous other site* have since been offered. It is alleged by eomethat the site selected is utterly unfit for the purpose from sanitary defect* ; while others a* stoutly assert that It is eminently fit. No longer since than December 21st, the Council was at war on thU question, end Judging from ap pearances it Is doubtful when they will agree upon any otiier site than the one already pur ebaseu. in the meantime, no b:«utuuoo is more absolutely needed than a substitute for our pre sent wretched Bridewell. COUUT HOUSE AXD CTTT n >TT— Tbc rapid growth of business pertaining to both city and county baa been such as (o piake it very evident that tho Court Uoose was not nearly commodious enough to accommodate It, and many attempts have been made to remedy lue One plan, which at first seemed likely to be adopted, was to transport the Recorder’s court to the Armory, and to build a new County Jail. The room thus vacated to be rearranged and fitted up for tbc accommodation of the various officers. Ibis plan was recommended bv a joint committee of the Council and Boaid of bnpervlaors, but, oa a special meeting of the latter body being con* was found to be uupopular, and there* fore fell through. The next phase of the question is now under consideration. The Do aid of Supervisors and the Council have again appointed committees to coo ler with each other relative to the purchase by the count} of the city’s interest in the Court House. In cocnecuon with this u may be well to men tion that the Commit'ce on Public Buildings of the Common Council have recommended the pur elaseof a rite lor a City Hall, bounded by La- Salle. Griswold. Jackson and Von Uurcn streets, immediately opposite to the new depot ot tnc Michigan Southern i Northern Indiana and Chi cago, Rock ItlnuQ & Pacific Railroads. 1 hough this would not at present be central, yet li is perhaps as much so as any other available plot of land, and as the stream of trace on the cast bank of the river extends (as it must) southward, and tho stream ofpopulatton on the West side ex teids south and west, Van Burcn street will probably he more central than even Randolph and Washington streets to-day.

Onthelastnlehl ol the old year the Council authorized the* Hoard of Pu. lic Works to rent, for their use. the building known as bmitb’s Bank," situate at iSand 17 South Wells street. It is proposed to use the rooms about to be vacated, lu part for the use of the City Clerk. There seems to be a large amount of difficulty ahead in relation to canal contracts. Already Fox, Howard & Walker, and banger, Steele & Co., have failed ro fmfll the terms of their coo* tracts, and at the lasi meeting of the Council in tfcdfi, there was a communication from Ledlie, Lowell & Co., denying certain allegomenis made by Ihe Board of Public Works, as to the manner In which they were progressing. eight uocngcEsnox. Considerable time ha* been consumed lu dis cussing the propriety of limiting the day's labor o{ aly employes to eight hours, and at length ff solutions were passed by which the Board of Public Works was requested to inaugurate tbo .System on the Ist of January next rntEEMITS, 40. Mast attempts have been made to pass ordi nance* chancier thefiro limits, but wationt of lect, and to-day they remain as (bey were when the revised ordinances were published. There Is cow before the Council an ordinance permitting the removal and erection of wooden structures within the Are limits on certain con ditions. The passage of such ac ordinance, sut fldrntly cnardedin its provisions, would be * great be on to many poor pcopte. rovssa. Perhaps nothing has caused more trouble to the Lonucll than pounds. In various ways they have been nuisances. Popular indignation at the way in which the pound masters hare discharged their functions, has been very strong. The residents of the South Division have joined In a growl about the kidnapping oflbelr‘donrs;”ln the NonbDiris jon cows ana mules bare been the special aflml ticsof the Pound Master and bis a«sls«anw. but all the horrors seemed to be brought to a focu* In Ihe West Division. Dorses, cows, dogs and every description of anlnai were considered to be food for George Lander’s pound—every mode of kidnapping was retorted to to bring grist to his mill, and when once there he Is said to nave been peculiarly an adept in matter* of charges. At an the thing became Intolerable, and so the ret or all, reduced the charges permitted to be made, and then abolished the West Division ponnd altogether. Ttc Committee on Judiciary bare now been jet thou*U of preparing a Pound Ordinance which shall be eatUlactory to all pittlcs. The Bailroatl Question—Sewerage— Pay of Aldermen—Police Courts. An adjourned meeting of the Common Council was held on Saturday evening. When a quorum .had assembled the Board, on motion, resolved It self into Committee of the Whole, Aid. Woodard In tbe chair.
