A divorce Dilemma.
--The Supreme Court for York county, Maine
, has been in session for the September term two weeks. The Saco Democrat
gives the following account of one of the divorce cases:
"There have been three divorces decreed during the term thus far, and in connexion with one of said decrees there now seems to arise some ‘"funny"’ questions.
It seems that a certain party in South Berwick
, anxious to get rid of his ‘"spouse,"’ pressed a hearing upon his libel, and obtained a decree during the third day of the term.
On the fifth day of the term the said ‘"spouse"’ made her appearance before the court, and stated that her anxious husband and his friends persuaded her that the case would not be called up till the second week in the term, consequently she returned home, although she had a defence to said libel, &c., &c. The court, upon these representations, ordered the decree of divorce to be stricken from the docket.
Now, the funny part of it is that said divorced husband went home on the day of the decree, (obtained as before stated,) and forth with proceeded to Salmon Falls
and married another lady.
What his new wife will say, or how they will proceed when they learn that there is in fact no decree of divorce from the first wife, remains to be seen."
