WEDDING BELLS.-We again, with

great pleasure, record one of those most

pleasing events which takes, or should

take place in the lifetime of every

individual, i.e. the union of hearts and

hands for the remainder of Life's journey.

Unhappy and most miserable must be

the condition of the person who tries to

sail alone over the long and drearisome

voyage of life, with its billows of dis-

content and trouble. Receiving the

bonds of matrimony in sincerity should

be the happiest event bestowed upon man

to enjoy, and those who witnessed the

occasion of which this is a brief account,

will agree that such was the case in the

marriage on Feb. 3rd., of Mr. George

Burgess of Thorah, to Miss Hannah

Lambert of Brock. At 6 p.m., the

guests, to the number of fifty, were

assembled at the residence of the bride's

father and at 6 20 the ceremony was

solemnized by the Rev. Mr. Freed of

Sunderland. The bride was assisted by

Miss Thomas, and the groom by his

brother Mr. Adam Burgess. All looked

beautiful and happy as becoming the oc-

casion. The bride was the recipient of

many costly presents, some of rare beauty

which shows the respect with which they

are regarded by their many friends.

After the ceremony the guests were

treated to a grand feast consisting of all

the luxuries of the cook book. After this

most delightful exercise, the remainder

of the evening was spent in innocent

games and the "Mystic Maze," till

"morning day." It would take too much

space in your valuable paper to name

those present, suffice it to state that

three townships and as many towns were

represented by the near relatives and

friends who were favored. Prof. Dumont

did much to "chase the glowing hours,"

by rendering sweet music on his violin.

May the happy couple enjoy a long,

happy and prosperous partnership is the

universal wish of their friends.
