THE EXTRAOR DINARY CHARGE OF BIGAMY. At the Wandsworth Police-court, Eliza Emily Hardcastle, 39, a dealer in fancy goods, was re-ex- amined on the charge of bigamy. The first marriage with William Alfred Hardcastle at East Wickham having been proved, Leonard George Orowle, the second husband, who gave the prisoner in charge, was sworn. He said he was a traveller, and lived in Mayall road, Brixton. He was married to the prisoner on the 20th of June, 1876, in the parish church of Chatham, she being described as a spinster. He first knew of her former marriage on February lut, after returning from Liverpool. He was obliged to leave her in conse- quence of her drunken habits. Cross-examined: He first knew her four years age. He met her while making a purchase in a bazaar in Kennington. She waited till he left the shop, and introduced herself. He often went to her house while she kept a repository in the Walworth-road. He never saw the first hus- band there except once, and then he asked who be was. She said she had lived with him before she had her children by her family doctor. Mr. Bridge expressed surprise that the witness should feel injured after knowing her antecedents. The witness said he felt very much attached to her unfortunately. He did not threaten to expose her im- propriety of conduct with him if she did not marry him. A letter was put in, written by the witness, and the following words were entered upon the minutes: although you cannot be to-mea wife by law." The witness's explanation of the words was that she was a bankrupt at the time. Mr. Bridge remarked that bankruptcy did not pre- vent marringe. The witness was also questioned as to whether he had been married before. He said he had been, and was a widower. He did not know why he was de. scribed as a bachelor in the certificate of marriage with the prisoner. He never held the certificate over her and threatened her with transportation if she did not give him money. She had been to him, wish. ing him to live with her again, and saying she could not live without him. Mr..Bridge said the husband did not deserve any sympathy, whatever the wife might deserve. The prisoner was then committed for trial, the magistrate taking the first husband's bail for" her appearance.
