In a certain city whither I had gone to
deliver a course of lectures to w s young
men's society, I got.,acquainted with a
young woman, Josephine Milroy by
name, whose father was a millionarie.
With this young lady I fell desperately in
love. 0, sir, she was superbly, regally
beautiful. She was finely. educated,
graceful, and the finest singer I have ever
heard in private. Her conversational
poeers were charming, and withal this
she was tender and womanly.
I pressed my suit, never dreaming of
the little girl I had whipped in the coun

and the wealth, woman's affection, it con

How happy I was, only a true lover, who

One evening my affianced bride and I

Having been appointed Justice of the
Peace, I waii accosted on thelith day of
July, by a sleek looking young man and
in silveryiones requested to, proceed to a
neighboring hotel, as he wished to enter
into tho holy bonds,of matrimony. Here'
was a "squelcher." I had never done
anything of the loud, had no books nor
forms; yet. I was determined to do things
up strong, and in a legal, manner; so I pm
ceeded to the hotel, bearing in my arms
one copy of Revised Statutes, one ditto
Webeter'e Unabridged Dictionary, ono
copy large-sized Bible, a small copy of the
Creed and Articles of Faith of the Con
gregational Churoh, one copy of Pope's
Essay on Man, and a sectional plat of the
map where, the v i ctim lived. Having
placed a table in the middle of the room,
and seated myself behind it, I, in trum
pet tones, called the case. With that
the young man and woman, with great
alacrity, stepped up before me. Having
sworn them on the.: dictionary to amiss*
well and truly ali questions I was, about
to ask, I p,*ceeded. Ltold the yormg man
that being an entire stranger, I should
ask him to give bail for the costs. Hav
ing beard this so frequently iu court, I
thought it indispensable. He answered,
if I mgant the fee for performing the cere
mony, he would deposit it then and there.
As'l did not know exactly what I did
mean, I magnanimously waived that por
tion of the ceremony. I then told him
it would be necessary to give bail to keep
the peace. This be said he was willing
to do when he arrived home, and I then
waived that point also. e
Having established to my satisfaction
that they wanted to get married, and that
they were old enough to .enter into that
blessed state,,llui*eieded.to tie the knot.
I asked him if be was willing to take
iiiiterS;ulian to be hiS wife. Ile said he
was. I told iiim..that I. did not require
haste in the answer; that ho might reflect
a few momenta if he wished. I told him
she looked like a dna girl, and I had no
doubt she was; but if the sequel proved
that he had been taken in, I did not want
to be held responsible. I said be must
lore, boner, and obey her as long as she
lived; he must not be "snappy" around
the house, nor spit tobacco juice on the
floor; all of which he promised faithfully
