In St. Aloysius Catholic Church, at Georgetown, D.C., Sunday, the Rev. Father who delivered the sermon asked prayers of the congregation for the soul of the late Assistant Adjutant General Blount, of the Confederate army, killed in battle on the 21st of June. The reverend gentleman said that the deceased had been a student at Georgetown College forty years ago, and that he was his preceptor and knew him to be a man devoted to God.
Captured Abolitionists. --Up to yesterday morning 229 abolitionists had been brought down from the vicinity of Fredericksburg. Included in the lot was Capt S. S. Marchant, company H, 136th Pennsylvania, taken near the above town, and Lieut. John E. Power, of the (bogus) 2d Virginia cavalry, captured by Gen. Wade Hampton's forces at Dumfries, Va, December 12, together with F. Lamb, U. S. telegraph operator, a dozen or more sutlers to New York and Pennsylvania regiments, Wm.

Without hearing any evidence, without any publication of the matter being had, without either party to the suit being within one thousand miles of Salt Lake at any time during the pendency of the suit, the Probate Court over there granted the divorce. Robinson married a woman named Laura Hatch, in this place, when he got the divorce. His first wife was living at Georgetown, D. C., when the second marriage took place. She went out there and had Robinson arrested for bigamy. An examining magistrate dismissed the complaint on the ground that Robinson thought he was doing no wrong. Robinson, however, is not yet clear of the meshes of the law.--The Grand Jury will have the matter before them at their next sitting.
