     In this matter a Bill had been introduced into the House and has been read a first time. The object of the Bill was to dissolve the marriage of Richard Watson Joynt, of Ballina, in the county of Mayo, Ireland, newspaper proprietor, with Charlotte Barker Joynt, now his wife, and to enable him to marry again for other purposes.
     Mr. LEWIS COWARD was heard this morning on behalf of Mr. Joynt in support of a petition praying that a duly attested copy of the will might be transmitted by registered letter to Daniel G. Gillette of 34, Nassau-street, New York, in the United States of America, and that the attendance of Mr. Gillette before the House to prove the personal service of the copy of such Bill, notice of the second reading of the Bill, and of the usual orders of the House, on Mrs. Charlotte Joynt, might be dispensed with, and that an affidavit of Mr. Gillette of such personal service, sworn before the British Minister in New York, under the provisions of the 18th and 19th Vic., c. 42, might be deemed good and sufficient proof of such service. The application was made with the object of saving the expense of sending over to America some person who on his return to this country would be able to give evidence of personal service on the wife on the second reading of the Bill.
     On the motion of the LORD CHANCELLOR.
     The prayer of the petition was granted by their Lordships.
