The Forrest divorce case.

--A report that the Forrest divorce case has come to a final end has obtained wide circulation, and is by many believed; but there is no truth in the statement. The Superior Court has decided that, pending the trial, Mr. Forrest shall pay to Mrs. Forrest, that was, three thousand dollar annum. It seems, however, that there is still a chance that this monstrous decision may be reversed, and that Forrest may yet get justice, as the case, we understand, is to have another hearing in December, before the Superior Court. Failing there, Forrest will carry it to the Court of Appeals, on exceptions, for a new trial. As Forrest one day remarked, "there is no finality to the law till they hang a man!" His counsellors, John Van Buren and James T. Brady, have strong faith in procuring justice for Forrest finally in a new trial. If a new trial is had, there is no doubt in the public mind as to the result.--Boston Post.
