-BIGAMY.
ARREST OF THE ALLEGED CULPRIT.
On Monday evening our quiet city was thrown into a fever of excitement by the arrest of an alleged bigamist and the following morning a representative of the AVALANCHE, by the courtesy of the genial sheriff, interviewed the prisoner at the jail. He met us with a cordial "good morning," and upon our inquiry expressed a perfect willingness to give us all the facts required, which, in substance, are as follows:
My name is Nelson SORELL; am about sixty years of age; was born and brought up in Monroe county, New York. I moved to Waukesha, Wisconsin, about 1846, and there met and loved Miss Susan KIBBEE, a poor girl, whom, after due courtship, I asked to be my wife, and in September, 1848, we were married by a justice of peace, named HATCH. We lived together as man and wife, with ever-varying felicity, until 1875, when we agreed to separate forever, she declining ever to renew the marital relation with me. She had borne six children, the last of which while I was in the army, under circumstances which were at least deemed suspicious, but I loved her and was willing to condone all the past, but she rebelled, and demanded one-third of the property, which by industry and economy I had accumulated. She said she had never loved me, but had married for a home, which she could now have with her children and property, and without me and locked me out from my own chamber. Finding there could be no harmony between us, as I said before, in 1875 we agreed to separate. I sold the farm, gave her a pleasant home and more than half the property, and we each gave the other a paper ageeing not to molest the other in any way should either choose to marry again. I have always been an honest man and true to my marriage vows. I came here to Grayling in September last and began business at my trade, as a blacksmith. Soon after, I became acquainted with Mrs. Lucy DODGE, who came here from Shiawassee county in November, and who, like me, was a stranger here. She was a wife and yet a widow, having left her husband, a farm laborer, about two years before, and had never been to the expense of obtaining a bill of divorce. She had undoubtedly hungered for the love she had cast away, as she claims, for cause, and sought solace somewhat indiscriminately, and on the 19th of January last, gave birth to a daughter. The 11th of February I led her, a blushing bride, to the altar, before Justice KILBORN, of this city, since when I have enjoyed the pleasures of a home until last night, when, for the first time in my life, I was arrested and brought to jail, but I have done nothing wrong that I know of, and think it will be so proven.
Thanking him for his attention we bowed ourself from the office, to await developments of the examination to be held in the afternoon, a report of which will be found in its place. (16 Mar 1882)

-The man SORELL, who was arrested last week for bigamy, skipped before a second service was had upon him. His wife (No. 2) preceded him. ( 23 Mar 1882)
