DEFINED IN ALL ITS DETAILS.
A High Emrlinli Authority Lays Down the
Rule of Conduct The Preliminaries
At tbe Altar At the Heuse At the
Breakfast After the Wedding.
A WONDERFUL OLD MAN.
Hew Alexander Stephens Defies the Indi
vidual with the Sickle His Phenomenal
Appetite A Giant of Ninety-two
Pounds Interesting: White Heuse
Statistics Allentewn'i Cause
Matters of Moment te Bacheler and Maid.
The invitations for a wedding are mere
frequently issued in printed notes than en
cards. They arc issued from ten days te a
fortnight before the ceremony and usually
run as fellows : "Sir Jehn and Lady Green
request the honor of Lord and Lady M.'s
presence at St. Geerge's, Hanover Square,
en Thursday, March 18, at eleven o'clock,
and afterward at 120 Gresvener Gardens."'
Sometimes the hour of the breakfast is
specified. When such is the case it implies
that the guests are net expected te drive
straight te the house from the church, but
te present themselves about twenty min
utes before the hour named. It is, of
course, obligatory that an invitation te a
wedding should be answered at once, as
people naturally wish te knew the number
of guests they may expect. The guests
all assemble at the church, and there await
the bride, the bridesmaids awaiting in the
perch and falling into their places behind
her. The bride arrives in the carriage
with her mother, and her father receives
her at the deer, gives her his right arm
and leads her up te the altar or, in
case of a choral or high church wedding,
te the centre of the church, where the
first part of the service is performed
and where the bridegroom attended
by the best man, awaits her. The
bride's eldest brother, or some of her near
relatives, should also be in waiting at the
deer te escort her mother. The number of
the bridesmaids varies according te taste :
the bride cheeses what costume they shall
wear, generally indicating where it is te be
procured, se as te insure uniformity, but
she docs net present them with their dresses
or gloves, or any ether part of their equip
ment. The bridegroom provides the bride
and the brjdesmaids with their bouquets,
which arc sent te them in the meniing.
He also presents each bridesmaids with a
souvenir, such as a locket, perte benheur
ring, breech or fan. These arc sent te
them the day before, and are worn at the
wedding. The bridegroom is attended by
one friend as best man, whose duty it is
te held his hat and gloves, pay the fees.fcee
that the carriage is ready, and, in short,
take all trouble oil his hands. Seme care
should be taken in properly matching the
bridesmaids as te height, and they should
clearly undci stand beforehand in what
order they are te fellow the bride up the
When the precession steps they spread
out behind her iu a scmi-chcle ; the head
bridesmaid her sister if .she has one, if
net the bridegroom's sister or some near
relative takes her bouquet and gloves.
The father or ether relative who gives the
bride away stands en her left hand, and at
the inquiry, " Who gives this woman te be
married te this man ?" he places her right
hand in that of the clergyman. It is, of
course, the nearest relatives who stand
close around the bridal party ; it would be
very bad taste for mere acquaintances te
usurp their places. Immediately the cere
mony is concluded the newly married cou
ple, with the clergy and the nearest rela
tives, adjourn te the vestry te sign the
legistcr, the bride signing in her maiden
name, and it is there that the bride and
bridegroom receive the congratulations of
their nearest relatives. If favors are given
they arc distributed generally by the
bridesmaids, while the wedding party is in
the vestry. They are mere usually given
than net, but still there is nothing remark
able in their being emitted Ladies'
favors are generally a spray of jessamine or
myrtle, with silver leaves" of white satin
ribbon ; the gentleman's, a spray of oak
leaves and acorns, with silver and green
leaves, without ribbon. The bridesmaids'
favors are generally slightly .mere orna
mental and often have a spray of forget-me-net.
It is the duty of the best man te
see that the carriage is at the deer and he
infeims the bridegroom ; the newly married
pair then walk arm-in-arm down the church
followed by the bridesmaids, in the same
order as before, and drive off first. It does
net matter in what order the rest of the
party fellow them. When the wedding is
in the afternoon the guests go straight te
the house and the refreshments provided
are such as are given at a large afternoon
reception, with the addition, of course, of
the wedding cake. When the wedding is
in the evening, all the guests attend in
evening dress, and, after the ceremony,
drive straight te the heuse1, where there is
either an evening party and a sitting down
supper, or a dance and an ordinary ball
supper, a wedding cake being, of course,
essential in both cases.
On reaching the house the bride throws
up her veil, and receives the congratula
tions of her friends and acquaintances. In
the jntcrval between the return from
church and the breakfast the inspection of
the wedding presents gives employment te
the guests. They arc displayed en tables
in the drawing-room, with the names of
the donors written legibly en cards
beside them. Seme care is requisite te
arrange them properly ; they should
net be te crowded, and they should be
clasified jewelry en one table, plate en
another, china en a third, and se en. It is
very usual te have an afternoon party two
days before the wedding te exhibit the
presents ; and te this many arc invited who
are net asked te the ceremony itself; the
trousseau, tee, is then generally exhibited.
This party is net necessary, but very fre
quent. It may be observed that grooms
men are net usual in geed society, the
bridegroom being attended by one friend
the best man. When breakfast is an
nounced the bride and bridegroom lead
the way, and seat themselves either
at the head of the table, or as is new
usual, in the centre, immediately opposite
the wedding cake. The father of the bride
fellows with the mother of the bridegroom,
and seats himself next his daughter. Dur
ing the interval before breakftst the hostess
has indicated te the gentlemen what ladies
they are te take, ana they fellow indue or
der of precedence, she herself going
last with the bridegroom's father and sit
ting next te the bridegroom. The best
man always takes the head bridesmaid,
and the ethers are taken by gentlemen as
signed te them by the hostess. It is usual
for them te sit opposite the bride, but this
is net essential. Very frequently the break
fast is net laid out en one long table, at
which all the guests sit, but is served like
a ball supper, at a long buffet, where the
majority of the guests partake of the meal
standing, while some small round tables
are appropriated te the nearest relatives
and principal guests.
The menu should include soup, cold
salmon, mayonnaises of lobster and
chicken, larks, quail or something of that
kind, cold lamb, chicken, ham, tongue and
sweets. The table must be prettily ar
ranged with fruit and flowers, the dishes
being generally ornamented with silver co ce
saques, &c, and the menus printed in silver.
Champagne is indispensable, and sherry
and clare t are likewise offered. Neither
tea nor coffee is as often emitted as net.
It is the wise custom of the day te abolish
speeches as much as (possible. The guest
of the highest rank proposes tbe health of
the bride and bridegroom, and the bride
groom proposes it and the brdegroem
responds, the mere briefly the better. If it
is wished te drink the health of the brides
maids the bridegroom proposes it and the
best man responds. It is quite obsolete
te drink the health of the parents, the
object being te curtail the speeches as
much as possible. Previous te her health
being drunk the bride cuts a cake, of
which it is obligatory that every one
should eat a tiny piece, and then retires
te change her dress, about a quarter of an
hour after which the guests adjourn te the
drawing room. Of course, at afternoon
weddings there is no sitting-down meal,
only a buffet, with such refreshments as
are given at large afternoon parties, with
the addition of the wedding cake. When
the adieux are ever two white shoes, at
least, should be thrown one by the chief
bridesmaid and the ether by the best man.
It is the farewell of the unmarried te these
who have just left their ranks. If rice is
thrown at all it should be by the matrons,
and net by the young ladies.
The wedding of a widow differs in some
respect from that of a girl. She cannot
wear orange flowers, or a simple veil, or
be married in white, but must select gray,
violet, lavender or some ether color, and
wear a bonnet with a veil. She can have
no bridesmaids nor are favors given, and,
as a general rule, the wedding is a quiet
one and there is no breakfast. The wed
ding of a widower is in no respect different
from that of a bachelor, but if he have a
daughter it is net in geed taste that she
should be a bridesmaid. Atter the de
parture of the bride and bridegroom the
party at once breaks up, and in Londen it
is net customary te have any festivity in
the evening. It is net usual te send cakes
or cards te friends at a distance, and
people discover for themselves when the
young people return from their wedding
tour and call at their own convenience.
When the bride reappears iu society she,
the first time she appears in any house,
takes precedence of everyone, no matter
hew high the rank. This continues for three
months, after which she is no longer con
sidered a bride. The custom is, however,
beginning te fall into disuse, excepting in
rural districts ; the bridegroom docs net
obtain any precedence. The bride gener
ally wears her wedding dress for her first
dinners and parties ; the orange blossoms
must be removed, as they are only permis
sible en the wedding day. Many brides,
however, prefer te keep their wedding
dress for their presentation te court, ad
ding te it a low bodice and train, and there
is net the slightest necessity that they
should wear white at their fit st parties un
less they wish it. Many prefer net te de
The Confederate Lire Preserver.
The Washington correspondent of the
Brooklyn Eagle claims te have solved a
problem that has long vexed close observ
ers at the capitol. He says :
Nobody ever expects that Mr. Stephens
will die a natural death. That fend hope has
long since been abandoned. He can tackle
the old man with the sickle keen, or the
gentleman who is mere familiarly known as
the Reaper, whose name is Death, mere fre
quently and successfully thanany well-bred
giant en the glebe. De you knew the
secret of it'.' Easy and regular habits?
Well, perhaps these may have something
te de with preserving this frail anatomy.
He recreates with whist, and gees te bed
at 10 o'clock ; but, my word for it, he can
systematically en teat any disease known
in the doctor's calendar. It is the eighth
wonder of the world te sec this delicate
representative of the human race turned
loose en a bill of fare. It literally bears
out the remark of Beb Toombs that he is
hollow all the way down te his ankles. He
weighs ninety-two pounds a Democratic
gain of one pound since the last count was
taken and he can absolutely hide
away in the course of twenty-four
hours mere solid nourishment than
any man in Congress and perhaps out of
it. New something poetic and relined and
romantic, such as a diet of rose leaves or
nightingales' tongues might be expected
from a man who draws his coat closer en
the approach of a gentle breeze, wears his
hat in the house and carries about gloved
hands. But we are forced te the conclu
sion that Uncle' Aleck has creature in
stincts. He stewed away te my certain
knowledge, en a certain occasion, a sheep's
head fish (preceded by soup), two kinds of
meat in most liberal proportions, and a
vast quantity of side dishes and vegetables.
The difficult feat he accomplished with a
gusto and relish that would bring a blush
te the check of the most traveled gour
mand ; and when the deed was done, the
plates looked as if a stroke of lightning
had been at work in the neighborhood.
Of course, it is useless for Death te take
liberties with such a life preserver as Ste
phens. Nothing but a railroad collision
or a balloon trip will have any effect en

Lehigh's Legal Sensation.
Allentown has a " celebrated case" in
which three prominent lawyers, including
Mr. William H. Sewdtn and ex-Judge
Longaker, raise a question of veracity be
tween themseives and Judge Albright.
The Chronicle says: "The right of petition
having been denied in the court, our col
umns were open te the petitioners, and
they very squarely denied that which the
I court had put upon record as a fact. Te
this emphatic contradiction there has been
no response. Three lawyers have publicly
challenged the truth of the records of the
court, and the court has nothing te say."
Lehigh seems never te be happy unless
ther have a terrible turmoil of some sort
or ether, and even the judiciary is net safe
from pollution. In Lehigh there is a geed
deal of smoke about the throne of justice,
and if it is net stepped people begin te
think that there is some fire.
