Jorotno Bonapnrto, in tbo year 1803, during tl.ft Con aulshlp of hta brother, camo to tue United States to effect Httpulationa f>r tbo cession of Louisiana, tuon a nosseasion or Kranoe. lmring'his here ho beenmo acquainted with the Tamily of Mr. William Patterson, a wealthy oilira of italt.n.oro, and linolly was umtod in marriage to ins daughter Kli/ibeth, though not without considerable opposition on tho part or Monsieur -ebon, the French Consul In the United Stat.*. Jerome returned to Earopc. an 1 Kent his to Holland while he proceeded U) meet his brother, Ibis parting provad to be a Unal one, though letters wore written by Jerome In whiob ho prouwto.1 his faithfulness. Tbo mother of Jerome (Madame Lctitia), In acwrdauoe with the proviBioLS or tho Krcnch law, applied for a divorce Tor her son. The Pope, however, roused to grant it, though a decree was finally obtained from the clorgy of France declaring the marriage annulled. Jerome, on tlio 12th of August, 1H07, was married u sejood time to Catherine of Wurtemburg, and was proclUmod King of Westphalia in tho latter p.rt of tho same year. After this event ho wroto sevoral letter* to Miss Patterson In America In which he robust M her to como to Kurope, and her son, upon whom he was denrous of conferring a position suitable to bis rank ami birth, tako up her residence in a palace at Smil nalden with a title and rovenue. All these ollors she refused and In January, 1H13, obtained a divorce on her own bebail trom the Legislature of Maryland. In 1819 ahe went to Europe, wheto she was receive,! with eM?re?

Sucb are the two queauonn which, after having bwv de bated before the Coturtl de HmUk, are to come again? this time with the coocurrvuoe of the wife?before the Tribunal de la Heme. Tbe?e preliminaries being understood, I will endeavor to state Impartially, by moana of documenta, which will lie laid before the Tribunal, and by devoting a large B|>ace to the citations, the circumstances which have pre ceded, accompanied and followod th? marriage whose va lidity and legal character are the object of the present suit. Tie peace of Amiens had been signed hardly one voar when a rupture became imminent, fh" First Consul, while concentrating all hi* maritime forces, at the game time sought alliuh lor France against Kuglaud. Wishing to secure the will of the Putted suites he deter mined to cede IxniLsiaua to them in consideration of eighty millions ot fiane*. oue fourth of which was to he devoted,lie iald, to indemnifying American commerce for Iomiw Kuatuiwd by capture* of vessels made during the preceding wars. Accordingly, In 'he latter part or Miiy, 1903. the young Jerome Bonaourte bulled from Martinique cm a merchant vessel for the I'mini .States. Tte relatious which he nought IU that country wore agreeable to the |?lltical views of his brother. Anion;,' the families at which he visited ?a.s that of Mr. \\ illlim Patterson, one of tho most wealthy nod resjK'i Citila citizens of Maryland. President Jefferson, in a latter to Mr. Livingston, United Sinus Minister at I'arirf, dated November 4, ltwa, writes:? Mr Pattrrson is the President of the Bank of Baltimore and the richest limn in Mar) land, and peibaps in th* United MtMe-. wlih the exct ptlou of Mr. i .'arioll. lie it a man of liu niense property and great it speetahUltv. IPs mother ? stater of (Jen* atI Samuel smith, and th? family la one ot llie tint in the Lulled Hale*. Hueh conditions ?i>* ermine rank la u country when- there are no hereditary title* lhls letter led to the rumors which soon began to spread of tho upproacliing union between the brotuer of he KithI Consul and Miss I'utterson. Miss Miaubeth 1'at erscn, It i.- said in tho memoir published in hnr favor, united to the natural graces (if youth and beauty the precious gifts of tin elegant and erudite education. Wo reud further, an estimation entirely diilerent, not of the |>erH><mi advantages, but ol the character and educa tion of Mien I'uitoignn. flo this oh It may, tho honrt of the young officer whb soon taken captive, and ou the !46th of October. ISotl, citiaen I'ichon, Consul to the United Slates, learned from the lips of the young Jerome lion iparte himself, that he had, through the agency of M. Yrujo, the Spantfh Minister, asked tho hand of Miss l'atlersou in marriage, Citizen l'iclini understood tho llrst Consul. It was not (liihcnll for him loiliviiie tho vaft intentions which the future Fmpttor dreamed of for hi.nse'.f and his | family, and to wluu conmiro lie would bo oxp.iged if he | s< light not to break oil or po.-tpone ilie man iago of one of j liln bn thers with a lady ciii/.i n -if a republic. So, h irdly i had he received ihe ronUdtncc of the young I man when lie net himself to work to causa | him to abandon liis design. Vr. Jerome IJonaparte, al though his oiheet's b: vet sluted him to he twenty two years ol a^e, bad not completed his nineteoHti. M. I'ichon endeavored to make him understand that a mar riage .ot tr .- eie.l ai hi- nge without the consent of his pi rents would l>e nu'l b) tfie proves! 'ns of bo'h the law .if I7tf'J an. tile civil c-sle which had been j'lst promulgated lu llio laMci eate, if tie. uev. law was to be leg-illy rs ?. Kiu/ed and obligatory in the I'tiited States, the consent of his parents w.ia nocess.iry uad tha tnarriige could bo annulled at the request of the mother, If made within tho following year. If, on the other baud, It could be sup posed that the law of Sept. '20, 17^-, was Still applicable tea FYenchmnn be; ond Ihe sen, It at l?asl be ctitne nt-i ewary lhal he should pr. ve by a birth register or by publication, that he hid a'turned the ago of twenty one yoats, beyond which ago tho law of 1792 permitted jKT-onn I ) many without the consent of their parents. Analogous observations to the above, wore trausmiltod by M. 1 iehou to Mr. Patterson, v. In> luul not concealed the inquietude which arose in lite mind from considera ti.-ii oi the age of the yetingoilleer of marines and of the distance wbuh m pirated bun from hi-i family, ana igno rance oi the provisions of the French law relative to mar riages enntractcd by a 1'rouehmm in a foreign country. M. I'llhon w ?? able to Hitter lilmoif with beiog ccssl'ul for a short tune, for on tho 14th o," Decetnber he received a visit from the Secretary of Jerome Bonaparte, with a tiole from the youn,' ol fleer, wiieh slated I'mi on n.aiuro reileciion he luid broken off the marriage and I that everything had been arr uig-d m a manner moat honorable lo hmuelf. M. I'ichon writing to the Minister of Foieign Affairs. M. dc Talleyrand, says: I doubt not that ihe manner in which 1 have conducted this ombaniu-intj uffair, tbe slat.- of isolation in u lilcli ho saw be would lip plaivd towards every agent of (lie govern men I and tlie Spanish >llni?f-r, as well as the arm tone In which I reproocbed elm wiili hla oilii-lal p.?iiloii, have led citizen Jerome to the resolution which be has Ulcn. There was too much exnltatlon in his vletory. Whether it wtis a sudden change in tho resolutions of Ihe Pattereon family- nnd young Jerome, or whether the dcelarations Of the laitor had been made with the object of re'ax'; -r the vi Ihuiee of the Oiruul, cert'iln it is that within a month afterwardb the umrTiage so um-xpected by M. licbon took plae?> TheCorHul was not ihe only person surprlsoil. Admi ral W dlaumcz, who camni'injed tie French Ucei, also surprised, and in a d spateli to |V>3rrs, Minister of the Marine, mtorming him of the marriage cnntractod by the brothel o: the First Cuusul, says ??! havo on deavored a gnai deal to turn liitti from this uudcrta king, and I believed it actually foregone, when j hi the end Of two MMMhk I learned mat | it had just l? en consummated at tho house of the lad) '? fathi r, with the greatest secreav."

Jerome Bonaparte, ha* contracted, In Ame rica. a marriage In wbiob the consent a/ the respondent bu not beuu required, and the publication not made in the sUte of bin residence; tbat abe cannot place implicit reliance in the re|>orti that her >on has mistaken hi* duty and transgressed tbe moat solemn law*; that if the fact* be true, the respondent will not heaitate to contend for all the rights which tbe law givea bar: that abe could not at present do less than add to Ler judiciary demand In annul mcnt. a drcument In the form of tbe act of oetebratloa of the pretende<l marriage; that the title la not at all in her power and la entirely uurecognizeil by her; that honeeforUi, nil re clamation on ber part 1h necessarily suspended and tnat sha cannot institute premature proceedings before me tribunal* In reference to an act which, moreover, haa no legal existence In France. Nevertheless, in order that ber Intent lot* may be known, and that no one may at any time be mieto In ten ret ber silence In a manner contrary to her fuel Ingn; lu order to express her opinion oa the offence whlcb her son might have committed against the lawa and against maternal dignity in such manner that the rights of the respondent may remain intact and that they may be ei eretsed by her representative*. to whom she declare* them delegated expressly to be exercised in Iter ft.mie. In case slta ? bouid find beinelr placed in a position where it would lie impossible to exercise them herself; the respondent de. i lares:? 1. 7 hat ber oonaeot had never been aaked by ber younger >?ii, and that she would have refuted it for reasons which i be !an did not authorize ber to declare. i. That she proton* solemnly against any marriage eon tract* d bv ber ?on Jerome Bcoaiiarte in a foreign country, without ber consent and In contempt of tbe form* prescribed by law. .1 That she exprerslr reserve* to herself this right, before whosoever the rat>e might come: and as soon as she shall be i'ble she will obtain a uecMa ol the act of oelebrstion to pro i ounce it* emiie nullity. R'gbt days afterwards, the 11th Ventoae year xiii, a de cree appeared, conceived in the following terms:? NAFOLCOK, KuFKSOK ok tiis Fkmxch:? In view of the act received by Haguldiau, notary of Pai ls, the third Ventose, year sill, containing, 4c., Ac In view of article third, sections (lrst and second of the law of tbevOthof September, 1792; the articles sixty three, one hundred nod forty eight, one hunired and sixty six, one bundled and sixty eight, one hundred and seventy, one hun dred and w-venty one, ?nd one hundred and eighty tun e of the eiv li eo<le, i^ad the Venofva (Tiaaii/fam of the UNth Florcal, year XII, of the t oiuicll of tstale. Considering that the marriage of a minor c ntracted lu a foreign country, without publicity ;'iid without the consent of father and mother, l nuil, according to the French laws; that it la the duty of the i l.ief magistrate to Interfere In all acts which concern the affairs of hi* family, and to pevnut or tv rvprn** everything that may wound b'a personal dignity and offend the majesty of the throne. Decrees. Article 1 ?All the otbcersof the civil service of tbe empire are prohibited from recelv Ing on their registry the transcrip tion oi the MM of celebration ol ? pretended marriage, which M.- Jerome lionnparte may have contractcd in a foreign conutty. In flno, in the 30lh Ventoen, year xiii, a new decree was issued, whic h this time radically annulled the mar rlage celebrated in America. I tider these considerations the Kmperor recallol the dterce of the lltu Yeutuse and the motives which iu duced it, and adds:? These precautious not having appeared to us sufficient to guaid the digtdly of our crown agaiiiat all injury, and to se cure the pie-ervation of those ri;hts whieii, like all other princes, we cxen 1st! over all those who havo the privilege of being our subjects, we have deemed it int|s>rtaiU IU the Wel fare i 1 i he State, and to the honor imperial family, to declare In an ii revocable manner ihe nullity of the said ?r<J tended marriage, as w;',t as to prevent ana render vtlb all attimpts which '^y be made to give It aav force or nilect. ror Ifccse r we have ordained ard decreed as follows:? Art. Ibe pietemled marriage contracted in a foreign C 'llhtiy by our brother Jerome Bonaparte is null and vidd and can never have at y civil effect. All agreements concern ing the said pretended marriage are also null and ol no sffoct. Art. 3 'Ibe children born and to bo horn from this aald marriage shall he always repnb d Illegitimate and will not bo entitled to claim any parental rights founded "U that union. Art. .'V All the ollicers of the civil service of the empire are expreaaly prohibited slid forbidden to receive on their regis ters the copy of the act cf ee'ebratlon of the said mar lisse ( r of any other act which inlitht ten>l to confirm It. The ministers of every foi lit of worship are also prohibited and forbidden to consecrate, according to the ceremonies of their reipeetlve creeds, the aaid pretended marriage, or to bless any new union which might conllrm it. While these acts were belnir promulgated In France, M. Jerome l<ona|>arte and his touiig wife left the United ft.ilcs for France. In the mouth of April they arrived at Lisbon, tin receiving this intelligence the Kmperor wrote from Mupinis to tho Minister of the Martuo, to prevent the debarkation of the wife of bis brother. He wrote in the same setirc to the Minister of Police. He gays:? Monsieur Jerome has arrived at Lisbon. 1 havo given him directions to come to .Milan, p issing through lVrpigii ui, Tou louse, (Irenoble and Turin. My ino ntlon, if he turns aside Is m that mute, ot pa-scs thiough llordeau\ or Paris, is to cause him to be arretted, fsce to It that he does not sojourn nt Hordeaux, and ttat he lie an<-sied and sent to Milan hv an officer iif the gend'amo-. If the woman who is withfchlm should come to Bordeaux, I desire that she shall not be per roltii d to land, and fhat she shall be directed to return to Amcriea. I desire you to call her Miss Patterson, whioli is the title that Ivelon^s to her. You perceive how I am in, tereated In this affair. If that w oman has eluded the police *ud has c< me to Paris with him, you will send her to Amsler dom, where 'he willrmbaik on the drsl American ve?*cl. And some days after the F.inporor wrote to his hro ther Jercme, as s<H>n as he wau uiformed of his uirival in Albxamlria:? Your union with Mi,-s Pa'ersou is null in tbe eye* of rell glen and the law. Write lu Ula* Paterson to return to Am-v liea 1 shall giwe her a penalon of fifl.OUOf., ou coudltiou that in no case shall she bear ray name, to whl. b she has no right, by rcssott of the nou existence of the union. Inform her of your-elf, thai you hate riot bceu able, and that }ou cinuot, thangu the nature of thlugs. At tl:e s.tme time similar instructions were .^.(ire-ted to I.uclen concerning Ihe marriage contr.uied with Madame Jon'rert-n, which for several years bad been ieg:trded as a mrsallianc. in the eyos of the head of the mate rial family. The follow ing i? the iopiy winch I.uclen made to the person who broiight him the message from his brother:? You conclude by tracing "<tl forme thelineof conduct I ought 10 pursue, viz ?to destroy the contract which hax united na 'or the last three years?to luing back to Paris my wife ? hanged into a concubine?to separate my daughter* from ihelr mother, who have found in her their parent?to acknow ledge my two children Illegitimate. And you call that a aim pie prooccdlug. And you think that, after having divided a pi or Iamllv. dishonored m\ wife, disinherited my children? that after having deprived them nt then name and their |?v salon, with h Is no lonzrr mine, but theirs?t should flud com |iens?tiou lor -I much baseness II ihe grace* and favors uhich jou sat would enable my llii-itimate children to live liuD'ircd and happy. Sir, I respect in y?ei tbe organ of the Emperor. Know, however, that rul'ior than descend to such infamy, I ?ouli inim<'late my sou ami mv daughter with my omb hand. Jerome was far from having tbe energy of I.u clen. He ncvet dreamed for a moment of open rc .'Htanot U> the plainly cxpresKifl will of his brother i.nd iatfMt#r, Did he hope in appetring to H'ibmit to tain time, aiid to appeaie hitur This :ipi>eirs to have bei'ii the result of his former let lets which he wrote to his wife after their separation. That separation took place at l.isbon, <m the 5th of April. This was the laj-t occasion ou which Madame lionaparte saw ber husband, thi se|ainitiug from her lie sent her a letter \vi ' n in i?'tn it. which rea ls as follows ? td-w<i Vprllf, 1*W.
