Mrs. Jane G. Swisshelm was last week pronounced guilty of desertion from her husband by a Pittsburgh Court, which at the same time granted the "better half" the decree of divorce for which she contended. The case has been before the Courts several years. One of the grounds of Mrs. Swisshelm's defence — and a potent one, it will be thought by many of the sex — was that she was compelled, by the penuriousness of her husband, to wear one bonnet several years.
