I j ETIEACII OF PROMISE OASES. A Young Man for Damages. A breach of promise case, in which the circum- stances are of a very unusual character, has (says a legal correspondent) been instituted Ii n the High Court of Justice. It is not -t young lady who seeks compensation at the bands of her faithless lover. The I plaintiff is a young man, and he claims damages for the loss ho has sustained through the non- fulfilment of the promise i f his betrothed. It appears that he is a Gentile, whilst his liancee belongs to the Hebrew persuasion. Her parents objecting to her alliance with a Gentile, she endeavoured to pacify their objections by only consenting conditionally to bo married to her lover, tue condition being that he should become a Jew. He did ttu, but after complying with all the necessary formalities to make hnn a fitting member of the community to which his intended wife belonged, she, it is alleged, reiused to carry out the promise of marriage. Hence tho ó\c"iou, £400 Damage?. I At Northampton —before Justice Charles—Mnrit* Richardson, single woman, Northampton, obtained £ 400 damages from Northampton, obtained £ 400 damages from Win.
