Tli? Lawrtntc Divorce Cue at Louisville, Kentucky. SAI.L1K WARD UWEHNCS Vg. TIMOTHY BIOKLOW I.AWRENCI?VKRDICT IN KAVOR OP MRS. LAWBKXC8. [From the Louisville Journal of Commerce, May 27 ] A petition was prevented to the last Legislature, by Mrs. Bailie Ward Lawrence, praying to be divorced from ber husband, T. Digelow Lawrence, in consequence of his having caused to be advertised, without justifying circumstances, and In an unwarrantable j manner, that sho had abandoned him. and forewarning all persons from "harboring and trusting her on his account, as hs would not be responsible for any debts contracted by her." The Legislature passed a general act, embracing this and many other cases pending, ; giving jurisdiction to tbs circuit courts of tais commonwealth. and authorising a jury to find the facts ef the case, and the court to decree accordingly. The case came up on Saturday, the 23th inst., before the Hon. Win V Hullock. A jury of twelve men was empanelled, and Mr Outhrie, for complainant, read so much of the bills filled as was necessary, setting forth the grounds ot divorce, the affidavit of the proper I officer, that due notice had been served, and the act ! giving jurlkdictiou in the case to the court. There being no defence set up, or counsel employed, I the Conrt observed that it would be necessary that the , Commonwealth's Attorney should be present, to see that the case was conducted according to the regular course of law. Accordingly. Mr. Wolfe, Attorney for the Commonwealth, being sent for. appeared, and alter examining the papers, referred to the statute, and applied it to tha bill which had been filled In March, and set lor the May term of the court. The question arises, has the party had time to file his answer' By the statute, ne must file his answer at this term; but the term has not yet expired. The statute also provides, that hs shall file his evidence in 9tu>port of hit answer at the next term, which would be September. Mr. Guthrie referred to the act to regulate divorces, and including the present case, lu which public notoriety through the newspaper press was made ground of divorce, llr remarked that though this was la the shape of a bill in chancery, still It was more of a suit at law. The jury ware to find the tacts of the ease, and the court decree. Neither the confessions uor the default of the party would suffice. The jury must find the facts before the court can act. The court examined the act of the Legislature, and decided that the case might now go on. Accordingly, the jury were sworn to bring in a verdict according to the law and evidence. The following oomposed the Jury: ? Joceph liauforth. foreman; George 8tannard, James Brldgeford. J. Broader. Jtmu Marshall. L. S. Mot by Daniel 8. Clark, J. U. Wright, Thos. 0. Kucker, J. N 8chru.der, 8 8. Bridges. Wm McKtiight The (Mae joined wax that T. B. Lawrence bad unnecessarily and unbccoaaingly exposed hla wife, Sallla Ward Lawrence, to public notoriety and reproach through the newspapers, and that tha verdict should be a* provided for In the special act of the Legislature. Messrs. George D. Prent'ce, VT. Preiton Woolley. and John H Harney, were brought forward as witnesses for the complainant, and duly iworn. Mr Woolley?I returned from a visit to Cincinnati on the night of the 84th February, and found a letter which bad bean received at the office several day* previously. It wat from Mr. T. Bigelow Lawrence, anclosing the advertisement, which waa pabliahed the , neit morning In tbl* (his) paper. The letter contained I money, and Instructed the number of Iniertloni de > sire*. Mr. Woolley, when asked if it waa requested that the advertisement should be inserted oonsplcu, ounly answered. " It was.'" The soma advertisement leans Picayune. Mr. Wolfe?Yon art acquainted with the handwriting of Mr. Lawrence ' Mr. Woolley?I am ; the advertisement was enclosed to me In a letter marked ' private and confidential " Mr. Harney said that he bad r< celved a totter from 1 an agent at Boston, requesting him to insert the advertisement referred to. In his paper ; be bad subsequently received another letter, asking fur a copy of I the paper containing the advertisement, as without It, j the bill could not ne collected ; It had not beon Inserted In his i aper. and none forwarded. | Mr. Prentloe bad received a letter from Mr. LawreBe?, 'aylnjf that his agent would send on an advertisement. "" necessity of publishing which he much regretted, but It was a duty which he owed to himself, ar l however mnch h# dtfllked. mu*t perform. Ha aid an advertisement wsi afterwards sent by Mr 1'alater. agent, warning the publle against Mrs Litw. rence. but it was not Inserted. He was absent from the city fur several days after the receipt of the letter, and on hit return he found the advertisement at the i office On the 7th of la.-l month, he received a letter from Mr. Lawrence, asking if the advertisement was inserted: and If not. why; The advertisement never appeared In the J?*rn*l. Mr. Hubert J. Ward was then sworn and testified as j follows: My daughter was married to Mr Lawrence | on the 6th of December 1S4S, she remained with me. at my bouse In this city, until the early part of March, at wLich time, accompanied by her husband. she went ! to Boston; some tim<- In July. 1 received ;?letter from h<r. stating that she intended to e -me to Kentucky with Mr Lawrence; but 1 afterwarLi understood, by a letter from that gentleman, that, in con?e<|n?neeof the prevailing eholera at llutfaio and 8*ndn<ky, they would not venture West; in Augu?t, I was reqnested by my daughter to come to Massachusetts, as the desired me tn bring her to Louisville; I Immediately tele- > graphed that 1 would come, and accordingly started tor her: when we left Boston for Ktntueky. Mr. Law- | r< nee offered no objection to Mrs. Lawrence's leaving IloMoti; he expresred regret that the absence of his father in London would render it necessary for him to rem/In at Boston, and pnvent him from coming to Kentucky.

T. BICELOW LAWRBNCB. Button, Mass., Fehrasry, 185#. fsli2A 171 The same notica was published in the Louisville Mmnivg Courier and New Orleans PiVayun*?copies of it were also torwarded to the offices of the Jourmal and Prmocrat, of this city, but they were not inserted in those papers. There was never a more deliberate insult offered to a female. It was intended as a stab?a malignant and revengeful back-thrust at the fame of his wife, who, confiding In the honor and refined sentiments of a husband whom she had been induced te love, ha* been foully, grossly. anil wantonly slandered. The man who perpetrated this outrage has proved, beyond all contradiction, that he does not possess a slnglu generous sentiment that he is wholly devoid of the respect which a man should feel for himself, and that he deserves the exvcratlon and contempt of every citiien who est* ems the honor of his wife or the happiness of his household. There is avery evidence of an exhibition of the meanert purpose to do a gross injury to a lady of whom the community feel justly proud?of a disposition to libel and soandalise a wife, who. on his fal<e protestations of love and affection, bas been prevailed upon to unite herself in marriage to a fellow who has damned himself moet effectually in the opinion of overy sensible aud honorable cltiaen. I am. myself, cognizant of very many farts relating to this unlbrtunatr marriage, and the result* of It, which delicacy !orbids me to mention. The family or the unfortuatelady are unwilling that any evidence. farther than that which In necessary to substantial* the a? rrtion of " wrong," should be adduced on this ocoa ioD. There la much which could be said here, which we feel ourselves compelled to keep back, because it is not the wish of the counsel for the complainant to ( object the lady to more unpleasant notoriety than Is imperatively neceasary Mrs. Lawrence Is well known to almost all of us. She U respected, and esteemed as an Intelligent, worthy, beautiful, and accomplished lady It ha* been well understood by the public, that relations of an unpleasant character existed between herself and husband, rather from the unbappiness experienced by her with her husband's relatives, than any other causa. Mrs. Lawrence returned to Kentucky last summer, and her husband has never been In this State since. Her health bad becomo precarious, and the consolation of home was absolutely necessary to her existence, and it Is this fact which makes the unauthorised 'notice" of Mr. Lawrence appear so malevolent and vindictive Tha conduct of the defendant merits the oontempt of everv man In the 1'nlon. There was no reason, no cause for htm to make such a statement. Nothing but a disposition to wreak a mean, unmanly revenge on an unfortunate lady, could have Induced him to manufacture so vile a falsehood. In Massachusetts, as well as Kentucky, the card has been spoken of as an ungentleaanly and contemptible rffusii n, emanating flrim a follow whu de. erven the coutumely and scorn ol every man who possesses the least scar k of honor In his composition.

[Here Mr. Outbrie read the card of Mr T n. Lawrence.] I.et ui see hew far this is true, or rather let us see If tt Is not all a falsehood. Did she desert him wilfully? Does not her lather, on oath, testify that be went tor her himself, at the request of Mr. Lawrence? Did she not come away from Boston, to use the words of Mr. Ward, " without her husband expressing any unwillingness whatever"' She came to her father's home; she returned to the bosom of her family emaciated with sickness, and distressed in mind. She sought an asylum where she might receive the kind attentions of a mother by whom she was lored ilevotedly. She Is now here and at her mother's house. She has not deserted him. She has returned to the homo of her parents, where she will meet with that kindness which she was disappointed la receiving from her husband's relations in Massachusetts Did Ur. T. B. Lawrence ioms for her? Did he offer to acrompany her to her homo? No: He resolutely reused to leave Doston. and persisted In his determination not to come to Kentucky. Then the assertion that his wife " wilfully deserted" him. Is a low. mean, contemptible falsehood, manufactured by a man who, having no respect for himself, thinks nothing ot intuiting a woman. Professor Oross has stated that he warned Mr. Lawrence before bis marriage not to reurn to lloston. lie felt assured that the climate of Boston weuld kill her If she went baok. Ho urged it jpon him afterwards; and yet this lordly man insists upon bis wife's returning to a place which ho well knew would prove her grave. He demands that ihe shall sacrifice herself in order tx> gratify his contemptible passions.

The improvements going on in buildings in the lower part of the city, and particularly between the llerald office and the Battery, are numerous and important. The two and three story buildings are built upon and raised to five stories, or they are entirely probtrated and re-built to double their former height. Sometimes you will see a building undermined, and the principal story, if it be of brick, replaced with granite, aud if it be of granite, per hapa iron ia substituted. We wish we could say bo much for the taste of the architecture as for the zeal in increasing the dimensions. All the orders and styles of ancient and modem architecture are mixed up together in "most admired disorder." The Gothic with the Ionic, the graceful Corinthian with the Egyptian, and the Elizabethan with some others that never had a local habitation or a name. The rnge is now for large stores, and for facing them with brown stone. These buildings generally present a hoary, gloomy, appearance. Iron is rapidly gaining ground in the public estimation. It seems it is cheaper, while at the same time it is something new. Some think it is handsomer, too, than ttone. In this, we beg leave to differ, but dt t^uttibu* non duputandum, there is no disputing about tastes. There is a difference of opinion, however, upon a more serious and substantial matter. While some hold that the iron is proof against tire, others maintain that it will crack with intense heat, and springing either out or in, the building will be sure to fall. There has l>een no test as yet by actual experiment. Iron buildings are a novelty in the world, even in New York. The first of them was erected about two years ago, at the corner of Duane and Centre streets, by the manufacturer himself, for his own use. Since then, there have been stores erected of the same material?one in Barclay street, running to Vesey, another in Washington street, and one in Broadway, occupied by Mr. Miller, near Courtlandt street. But pillars of iron for the principal stories, have becomc quite fashionable for stores. There is one cause which has powerfully operated in the First ward, and, indeed, in the city generally, as an incentive to the erection of larger buildings on the sites of smaller ones, and that is the great advance in renU and the prices of lots. People must take in some additional space from the sky, to make house property pay, or, where there are leases, to enable the lessee to discharge his obligations. Many of those who arc net immediately interested in the improvements going forward, are much dissatisfied at the obstructions of the streets, including the sidewalks, and they exclaim that New York will never be improved, for every year, the improvements are on the increase, as if all that had been already done was worse than useless. It seems somewhat like Penelope's web, of which there was as much unravelled every night as w.is woven in the day, so thut the web w.is never finished. Hut the comparison is not exactly apropos, for there is always more built up than wh it is pulled down, and the city is growing all the time, with an amazing rapidity. There can be no surer indication of the giant strides to prosperity of its trailing and commercial interests, which, "cribbed, cabined, confined," cry out for more room, as they well, vcar after year, beyond their former dimensions. This consideration reconciles the inhabitants oft Jot hs m to any preaentdiscomfort or inconvenience thev may sufler through the growing process, from bad to good, from good to better, and from better to liest. There is one observation, which may not v* **? thai *11*41 111 HO(fl* 01 the buildiii;;* now going tip, there is very little regard paid to the durability of tha struotu'rs, or the lives of the peoj>fc, The wall* are built slijjhtiv and ?q ii)N(1y, tlint they are oy no means sufficient j tonistain tkc weight put 111011 them; and in lh( event of a strong gale of wind, or their exposure 10 the action of fire, they will assuredly come down w ith a crash. Either the authorities now entrusted with this muter are not doing their duty, or they have not sufficient power to interfere, and in thit cake they ought to be armed with additional power, or sum new officer ought to be created, whose duty it would be to take cognisance of the manner in which all new buildings are constracted. Let us advert to nome of the recent im;>n>vemenfs between Fulton street and South Ferry. It ia not King since we published an account of the new buildings in the lower part of the city. We now notice only those just completed, or in progress of erection. In Whitehall street a magnificent store h is h?en o far finished, that the firm lor whom it was erected are now in occupation. It has two fronts, one In W iter and the otln i in Pearl, being I IK feet long and Ul feet wide. It is six stories high. the principal t tory being iron, and the remainder of the building faced with brown stone. The wall is 22 inches thick, ami it it built in the strongest manner. The doors, which are of iron, fold neatly into the iron pillars during the day, and are thus completely out of the way. and when the s^tre is shut, the front is all flush, having the appearance of an iron wall without any door. The cellar ia one of the finest we ever saw ; it is capable of containing ?00 hog?heads of br*ndv. This building is a wholesale grocery More, built by Mr. States M M>aad. for Sackett, Belcher tc Co. The architect is Mr. J. B. Corliea. In the sun e street, and at the corner of Stone street, there is another very handsome four-story store, the principal story and the window sills ol the entire building being granite. It is a cotton store, occupied by Mr. Franklin. In Stone street, a | f? w yards from this, a very large store ia in progress of erection. It is to have a brown stone front, to I e four stories high, 30 feet wide, and feet long. It is the pr??perty of Mr. Co*. Next to it the ground is tteing cleared for the erection of a similar building. Coming to |.roadway, we find that No. 1, or the Washington lintel, with which there are so many historic memories associated, has Just received two additional stories, and now looks a far handsomer building than it was, while it is certainly more convenient and profitable. The lower pirt of the buiklirg remains in the same state in which it was when Wathmgton made it his headquarter", with the exception of the front room on the principal story to the left hand as you enter bein$ elevated above the room to the rear, where the bar ia situated, and having an ascension from the latter bv means of i-teiw It is now u*?-.| m a rending room. That legation i? to br removed by in** preaent occupant.

It is to be a dry goods store, and to be occupied bv Bulkley 6c (.Inttin, who bought the lot. I The builder is George Iliggins. The two Miiall two story stores, at 101 Broatlway, are prostrated, and one, live stor.es high, iM about to be erected in their stead. Two n?-w fetores are being erected on the site* of 200 and 202 Broadway, the former occupied b|r the Apple tons, and to be enlarged for their im, from three to five stories. On lot iW2 is lo b? erected a dry goods store, of the same height, for Mr. Cleveluud. lioth to be faced with brow? tone. In Jolui street "he stores ?, 11, and 13 are being raised o?e story higher; and store SI, at the corner of Nassau street, has been undermined for the purpose of substituting granite tor brick in the pruMtpal story.

The glass is to be heavy plate. It is to be finished by the first of August. The owner is C. .Smith, of Maiden lane. The building 58 Nassau street, corner of Maidea Inne, formerly occupied by Weyman <fc Co., as a fashionable clothing establishment, has had tks granite pillars removed from the principal etory. and iron is beinj substituted instead. It is alas being enlarged in the rear, and a story is added. It is to lie occupied as an India rubber store, by a linn from New Grunswick. A new More is !>emg erected in Maiden laae, within one door of William street. Upon the site of the Second Ward Hotel, No. 87 Nassau street, an immense store is to be erected, running back 70 or NO feet; and alongside of it* No. 85, is to be erected another of the same dimensions. We have recently noticed the fact of twa magnificent stores about being erected at the corner oflireenwich and Courtlandt streets, to be faced with brown cut stone. On the corner ot (ireenwich and Falton streets, the Ocean Bank, a live story building, faced with brown stone, is ia progress of erection. Nos. 1H0 and 190 Fulton street, have had granite inserted in the basements and princiiial s.ones, instead of brick, and are otherwise improved. All these facts, collected but from one end of New York, namely, that part south of Fnlton street, added to the new stores described some three or four months since, indicate a progress ia building improvements unexampled even in thi* go-ahead empire city.
