YARMOUTH ALLSOP v. ALLSOP and COLBY.---This case came before the Divorce Court on Saturday last, the husband suing for divorce on the ground of his wife's adultery with the co-respondent. Both the respondent and the co-respondent answered, and traversed the adultery. It appears that the parties were married in Great Yarmouth in April 1857, both of them being at the time servants in a gentleman's family who resided there. In that family the petitioner was butler, and some years after the marriage, having obtained a similar appointment in a gentleman's family at Cheltenham, he rented a house for his wife at Yarmouth, in which she was to take in lodgers, and proceeded to Cheltenham to fulfil the duties of his situation. In his absence the respondent formed the acquaintance of the co-respondent, who was a resident at Yarmouth, and an owner of fishing boats, and on the 28th December, 1866, she was confined of a child, of which the petitioner could not have been the father, as he had not cohabited with her within the requisite period. Evidence was given of some distinct confession of guilt by the respondent, but there was no evidence against the co-respondent. The Court pronounced a decree nisi. The co-respondent was dismissed from the suit.

EPITOME OF SUFFOLK NEWS Contravention of the Gang Act.---At the Eye Petty Sessions, Ann WOODS, a licensed gang mistress, was charged with employing a female with males in an agricultural gang at Palgrave, on the 28th of January, contrary to her licence. - The Rev T.L. FRENCH, who witnessed the offence, retired from the Bench during the hearing of the case. Defendant admitted the charge, and said she took the girl, who was 14 years of age, to work in the gang from motives of charity, the girl being her niece and one of a large orphan family. She would own that she had done wrong. Might she have the girl to work in the same field, but apart from the boys? - The Chairman : No; that would be splitting the law. The Act was passed for the express purpose of keeping the sexes separate. You were cautioned and instructed at the time you took your licence. - Defendant : May I have a licence for the girl as a gang mistress? - Chairman : No; the law does not contemplate granting licences as gang mistresses to girls of 14. - Mr FRENCH said that, having seen the case, he thought that in the interests of the public it should be made known that it was contrary to law. The Act was passed mainly for the purpose of keeping the sexes separate. As it was the first case under the Act which had been brought before the Bench, perhaps the Magistrates would consider it sufficient if defendant were cautioned and her licence endorsed according to the provisions of the Act; and he would also ask the Chairman to be good enough to caution defendant not to employ any children under 8 years of age, as he had an idea that some of the children in defendant's gang were barely that age. - Defendant assured the Bench that all the children in her gang were of the required age, and left the court with reiterated assurances that she would be very careful not to offend again.
