The tar miration of tbe parts of bU discourse at the noon* mg, and upon the adjournment of iho Court at eventide, was followed by outbursts of applause which marked tbe interest which bad been felt in the course ofhls eloquent speech. Ibe speech was of course mainly devoted to i tho consideration of the evidence In the case, but there was much other matter Included In it to make it complete. Tbe iKjcuiiarlty of tbe case Itself was drat spoken ot, and here the counsel pointed out the ill-as sorted nature of the marriage In tbe temperament ot the parties. In their financial condition, and in the contrast of mentality, where his client was the feminine character, while tbe complaisant has the mind of a strong man, and tbe education com* patent to sustain its force. Tbe witnesses on the part of tbe complainant, or nearly all of them, met the force of the gentleman's denunciation, and he grouped their testimony to the mu devel opment ofall the strong points in his cheat's ta vor, while be also struck at weaknesses sod In consistencies wbten were tuthe record. These witnesses be spoke of Individually, as parts of _jhe cloud of witnesses that were to prove the overt act as charged. He denominated them ‘••globules In the complainant's mud cloud," and be limited some of them as such. Tbe learned counsel examined briefly the evi- . deuce tn relation to character, the result of which, i cn Ms bide, was to show that Hart 1_ Stewart, since he embraced religion, bad led a life which I, ad procured for him a good reputation among bis fellows. Then, coming to tbe defendant's case, ho held that It overturns tbe complainant’s ca*e, ami throws suspicion on It, because It contradicts by. unlmpeacbed testimony Hje statement* of the wit nesses for the complainant, and because it shows (bat a dangerous agency having been set a mo tion in tbe production of evidence, false charges have been set np, which always call down sus picion. Concerning this evidence, he made the points (bat the intense love exhibited by Stewan for hia wife raises a question whether be would commit adultery. Starting with the nresmop tion that nndtr such a state of case the act would not have followed, he enforced it by cxbibittrg the evidence that he was during all the time Included in the charges of the belief that ho was watched, that evidence might bo forthcoming. Then, to show that the probability is (hat these (bets I vsitbtn. bis knowledge were true, he mentioned tbe "bitter, concentrated hatred ot hi* wife." In | tonowirgtbeccorse or that hatred the detective , force had been called in, and they bad availed themselves of all IniuuU) to earn their fees. He tbotubt be bad clearly shown a conspiracy to And and 10 make testimony, and although net person ally liable for any set done, be felt he must faolo the complainant responsible for tbe result of he« course In starting the bounds upon hia client's ■ btels. In concluding, the speaker made known that, while under these charges, bis client will al »ayr, oppose divorce, be is willing that a decree be ren dered on (be erd-fi bill.where defendant a legal separation on tbc’rronnd of desertion. ihe case will be considered this day, Mv, Smith epeakiuglnbeb»irorllf».&iowirt, . - t ®j)c jpfcattna Reason.
