Divorces in England.

--Lady Crampton, Ret Miss Victorie Balfe, sued for a divorce from her husband, Sir John F. Crampton, late Minister of England in Washington, and now Minister Plenipotentiary of Great Britain in Russia, and obtained a decree dissolving the marriage. It was necessary that Sir Charles Locock, with others of the most eminent practitioners in London, should he examined in support of Lady Crampton's case. The second trial dissolved an American marriage, celebrated at Winchester, Virginia, between the Rev. Mr. Wm. Yates Rocker, an English clergyman, and Miss Sarah Massingherd Walker, a native of Virginia.
