(of the firm of Halsey

second daughter of
Mrs. R. Knight, Sr., by a former husband, the late Henry Roehrig.
The wedding party entered the Church at half past 6 o'clock,
consisting of the bride conducted by a brother-in-law; the bridegroom
conducting the bride's mother; and eight bridesmaids - no
- which is according to the latest decree of fashion
on such occasions. With their varied and splendid toilettes added
to natural personal charms, this party constituted the most
brilliant and attractive one that ever stood before the altar at

joyous tones of the organ that ushered in the betrothed and sent them
forth "twain of one flesh." The Church ceremony was pronounced in
the usually distinct, solemn and impressive manner for which Rev. Dr.

Married at the residence of

all of Seneca. This
was a country wedding or a wedding in the country, and were we but well
acquainted with the parties to the contract, it would perhaps not have
been out of place to speak of the happy event more at length -- of the
old time custom of chasing the
bride about the house by the young gentlemen present -- of putting the
groom to bed by the young ladies supposed also to be present -- of the
slipper game where groans of pain and shouts of mirth commingle
not unpleasantly. But as we are acquainted with every family
in Geneva and Seneca except this, our reticence is decidedly excusable.

declining years, when the Great Harvester shall come to gather in the
fully ripe, may they be found all WRIGHT.

CARGILL - WILSON
A Runaway Match -
A man named Cargill,
formerly a preacher
of the Free Methodist persuasion -- but now sadly fallen from grace -
was married in this village, on the 16th ult., to Miss Ada Wilson.
The parties reside in the town of Hopewell.
The old sinner induced the young woman to accompany him to Canandaigua
while her mother was away from home, and though the mother was
in this place several hours while the couple were here, and while
the ceremony was performed, she knew nothing of the transaction until
she arrived at her home in Hopewell. Mr. and Mrs.
Cargill set out in the evening for a buggy ride homeward, but
unfortunately the horse became frightened on Railroad Avenue, at a
passing locomotive. Cargill was thrown from the vehicle into a
mud puddle, and Mrs. C. jumped to the ground, badly spraining her
ankle. She was carried into the house of Mr. Persons nearby, and
kindly cared for. This Carghill does not bear an enviable
reputation hereabouts, and the mother is very much grieved at her
daughter's course, as
is quite natural, as it is the general opinion that she has thrown
herself away upon a graceless scamp. He is some 45 or 50 years
of age, while his wife cannot be more than 16 or 17. It is a
pity there cannot be provided a speedy dissolution of such
