AN AUCKLAND SENSATION.
» AUCKLAND, November 5. The following, published by the daily papers, is not at all improbable :—" Circles other than musical will shortly be stirred by an unlooked-for sensation, which, should it eventuate, will form the sequel to a story the first chapter of which was opened some threo years or so ago in Auckland. A young musician, as fair in form and feature as she was finished in art, gave a series of concerts in New Zealand, and a most successful series it proved. Naturally, hor boauly attracted many admirers, but the choice of the lady fell upon one not connected with the profession, and the marriage took place in this city. For professional reasons it was deemed expedient to keep the fact of the marriage very private, and so close was the secret kept that hardly anyone beyond the actual witnesses knew of it. The secrecy, however, gave rise to complications on a tour of the South Island, and it finally ended on the return journey North in the newly-wedded couple parting at Nelson ; the lady to go abroad, the husband to settle down quietly in Auckland. The lady has now returned here, and it is said that she is desirous of obtaining a divorce. The husband professes his strong determination to contest her application. The parties were brought together yesterday at the office of a local firm of solicitors, but no agreement was come to by the parties."
