In our report of the Lewitt divorce case last week, we did the Doctor an injustice by the statement that the poetry pnblished in the report was "inscribed" to Mrs. Perkins. There were two pieces produced by the defendant- copied from the Waverly Magazine and Godey's Lady Book - which were claimed by her to have been iound in the Doctor's desk ; but there was nothing in the testimony nor upon the mauuscnpt to indícate that the lmes were dedicated to or had ever been adS to auy one. This portion of the testimouy was unintentionally misconstrued by our reporter, but we assure the Doctor, and the lady to whom allusion is made, that we had no disposition to misrepresent or give any false coloring to the testimony in this unfortunate and uupleasaut affair, but simply to give the facts elicited by the evideuce as a matter of news to our readers.
