A HAPPY UXIOK.-A very pleasant
occMion wns the wedding ceremony which
occurred in the Preebyterlen church last
Thursday afternoon, at 8 o'clock, between
Mr. Oharlea Cromley, of Huntingdon, for
merly of the Bush House, thU place, and
Mia* Kate McClellan, one of Bellefonte's
handsome daughter*. At an early hour
tho commodious auditorium of the church
was well filled, and all waited the appear
ance of tho party who were to complete the
tableau. The opening nolea of tho "Wed
ding March" caused the congregation to
slightly transgress the rules of true propri
ety and turn their eyes to tho entranco on
the north corner of tho church, where such
parties aro accustomed to make their en
trance and exit. First appeared our friend
Mr. John Linn, and on his arm Miss. Kate
l'owers,a fine-looking blonde, with a dress
of rich silk and bonnet to match. Next,
with a military air, came the the tall,
handsome and dixtingue form of Mr. Al.
German, while at his side was Miss Lir.xle
Coble, a petite brunette. A brown silk
dress and dark bonnet heightened her style
of beauty. A constant smile illumined her
face and she attracted much admiration.
Last, but most important on this occasion,
ramo Mr. Charles Cromley, the groom, and
his fair bride. On these the eye* of all
"looked and lingered and yet delighted to
linger," and might easily ham looked all
the afternoon without wearying. Dress
and all other appointment* of tho happy
couple seemed to be complete. After
ranging themselves around the altar, they
were met by Rev. William Laurie. A
short prayer, words of instruction to both
bride and groom, the formal words of the
ceremony and tho closing prayer, followed
by word# of congratulation from tho minis
ter completed the exercises in the church.
During tho ceremony the groom looked
directly at tho minister, with occasional
glance* at his bride, and responded in a
distinct tone of voice ; the bride's eye#
modestly sought the floor, but her responses
were also distinct. The party filed out of
the church in the reverse order from that
in which they entered. From the church
they were driven to the residence of Mr.
Isaac Mitchell, where the time was occu
pied in roceiving congratulations and par
taking of the elegant collation prepared for
them. Tho happiest couple that boarded
the 4 : 80 train that afternoon was Mr. and
Mrs. Cromley. They visited the groom's
home in Pittsburg, and We wish them not
only a pleasant honey.moon, but arontinu
ance of happiness throughout their lives.
"HI THAT HATH EAR* TO HEAR LET

Rev. John Hewitt, of the Episcopal church,
preache* short sermons, but they are in
reality gems of literary excellence. I.a>t
Sunday morning the above text formed the
subject of his discourse, and was treated in
a masterly manner. He quoted an extract
by Bishop Jewell illustrative of the supe
riority of tho Bible over all other literature.
He showed that the text in question was of
simple meaning; that there are two ways
of hearing the Word, and he only truly
hears who also determine* to follow its
teachings. Here he alluded to the Sphinx
and Pyramids of Egypt, the inscriptions on
the side* of which were, for so many gene
rations a mystery to man, until science,
which he said is "the true reserve force of
revelation," came to hi* aid. The remain

FROM TUB CAXI nILM.
Nrnr Ok i.ba mb, February 13.—The po
litical prosecution* in th* United
State* District Court for tlii* district are
becoming serious. Already indictmenla
against nearly a hundred prominent
Democrat* bare been found, with prom
ilea of many more. The Grand Jury,
largely composed of men holdfng offi
rial position* in the Cu*tom-llou*e and
other* intimately connected with the
Republican party, ha* been organized
for a special purpo-e arid ii doing it*
work well. The evidence on which the
indictment* are obtained ia not worthy
of credence. The witnesses are ignor
ant negroes, who are brought to the
city at the expense of the Government
and paid s'i jn-r day for nuch time a*
they may be away from borne. W hen
it it remembered thut these tne,n rarely
receive more than $22 |>er month for
labor in the cane or cotton field, it can
readily be een how easy it ia for the
representative* of the Government to
ootsin men to swear to anything. Vou
have but to viait the first field you
crime to to obtain men who for 93 a day
will swear, if the exigencies of your case
require it. that they themselves were
killed by Democrats on election 'lay,
and that they have been restorer! to life
l.y Divine inter|rf>*ition to bring the
guilty to justice. And it is with instru
ments such as these that the present
Administration i* doing its work. Un
der the present law the test oath is ad ,
ministered to all jurors, and such as
cannot take this oath are not qualified
to serve. Outside of the Custom House
there i* scarcely a man in the .State who
can subscribe to this oath, and there is
certainly not a man in the Custom-
House who is fit to try men for crimes
alleged to have been committed against
(he dignity of the R-publican party.
The zeal of the District Attorney and
the United States Marshal seem' to be
inspired from Washington, and it is
sai'l that their retention de|*ends on ob
taining convictions. It is estimated
that about thirty of the more promi
nent among those arrested will be con
victed. Loungers about the Custom-
House will let that General King,
Congressman elect from the Monroe
district, instead of taking his seat in
the next House will be sent to the I'en*
itentiary. He defeated l.udeling, and
his arrest and prosecution were insu
gated by his dissp|>oiuted and vindic
tive opponent. 'J he General is a man of
education and culture and the last man
in the world to have committed the
crimes charged against him. Ilia aocial
po'ition it the best, and to talk ai<out
bis having intimidated the voter* of his
district is sheer rubbish.
