Swft appeared for the Crown, and Mr. Rigby Swift addressed the court on behalf of the prisoner. He said she was first married in 1891, and about four months afterwards her husband began to treat her with persistent cruelty, which lasted all the time they lived together. For four years after she left him she heard nothing of him, and this she told the second husband. – His Lordship thought there were exceptional circumstances in the case, and that he should be justified in ordering the prisoner to be bound over to appear if called upon.
