      MARRIED.

      At Alexandria, Dec. 25th, by L. G. Sims, Esq., JOSIAH MARTIN to MISS SARAH C. BARTLETT, all of Douglas County.

      On the 22d inst., at the residence of the bride’s father, in Maple Township, by Rev. C. F. Kingsland, GEO. J. STRANG to MISS SARAH G. BURGAN.

      Jesse is a good boy, and deserves the lovely bride he got. We wish the happy couple much joy.

      On the 28th, at the residence of the bride’s father, in Maple Township, by Rev. C. F. Kingsland, Capt. GEO. F. COWING to MISS PENELOPE M. STRANG.

      We welcome another recruit to the ranks of double blessedness. The gallant captain had to yield to the arrow of cupid, after all. We wish him all the joys that accompany a happy marriage.
