ally was, that rather than spend her own mousy,
the Queen preferred depending on the

subjects.’’ This charming sentiment,-»o iqex
pensive to the Majesty of England, was loudly,
cheered in the House of Commons, Arid

and settling her upon it, as a royal incogs,'
for the remainder of her life ?. j -kt 1 ” •
Lord Palmerston, thus driven into
ner, was compelled to answer. Ho decilhndj -
that, large as were the numerous and munfflient
allowances to the Queen and her husbAfefewjplf
contingent exiyhses Wore eo vqry hsgwqxapi
as not to' allow them .to lay 'by*hy«plP»' •
worth speaking of. Ho Instanced'’tho poEtll
ncss of receiving royal visitors front abroad,
and emphatically said that the expense of suits
ably entertaining Napoleon 111. andthe Em
press Eugenie had been very great, and fell
entirely on the Queen. He added—and we
would draw especial attention to tho statement
—that this visit of Napoleon and hiawife was
by mo means a pleasure to Ike Queens that aho
merely had submitted to it as an act of duty,
imposed on her by the exigencies of her situ
ation ; and that she had no personal gratifica
tion whatever in receiving such guests. -
We aro positive as to those words, for we
particularly noticed thorn at tho time. Here
the British Premier stated to the world, in the
plainest and most pregnant manner, what was
not only an implied, but ‘an actual insult to
Napoleon 111., for whom the Queen of Eng
land had professed the highest personal regard
and admiration, making him a Knight of the
Garter with her own hands, writing to him as
“my well-beloved brother,” and accepting Aii
splendid hospitality at Paris for herself, her
husband, her children, and her suite. It seems
to us that Queen Victoria played the hypo
crite on these occasions, pr was it really
“no pleasure,” but a reluctant yielding to
“duty,” which led her to Palis as Napoleon’s
guest ?
It is not to be supposed that such a state
ment as this, delivered by the PremieMo the
British Parliament, could have escaped the
sharp eyes of tho man whom it principally
concerned. Napoleon, whose myrmidons
anxiously inspect every lino of every English
paper carried into France, to prohlbitltacircu
lation if it oven hint anything against him, must
have speedily been aware that such language
had been employed. An ordinary man might
have bristled up against the insult, and de
manded explanation and apology; but <fMr.
Bonaparte” (as Victor Huoo and Leorc
Roilik childishly love to call him whan the
voice of Franco has placed on the throne) is
not an ordinary man. Astute, cold, refilctive,
far-looking, and with his impulses under great
control, he let the matter pass. He world not
compromise his dignity by descending t« com
plaint. Timo—which the Greek poe( truly
caTls the Consoler—has another missicn also,
and then it becomes tho Avenger. Naioleon
trusted to time, end has been compmsated
much osrlier than he bad reason to exptet. It
happened in this wiso
By the treaty of Paris,'the Prmdipalllea .of
Wallaohia and Moldavia were . taken from
under the protection of Russia,- and alaood
under the joint protectorate of France Eng
land, Austria, Sardinia, and Russia. Before
tho union of those provinces could takoplace,
a Representative Assembly was to bo tlectcd
by the people, whose wants and wishes in re
gard to internal arrangements and organisation,
were to bo considered. This Legislatrre.was
to agree on some line of action, as rfgarded
the future condition and status of tt o pro
vinces, and roport accordingly, to a Ongress
to be held atPuris, (composed of tho resident
ambassadors there,) who, with the Sultan,
would finally determine what should bs done.
Tho Sultan issued orders for the eleriion of
members of tho Legislative Assomblr, which
election took place—but with so litte refer
ence to the instructions and their objKt, that
the ambassadors of Franco, Prussia, Russia,
and Sardinia, called on tho Porte to ainul tho
elections, and hauled down their flajs when
. (on the pica that England and Austriahad not
joined in the demand) tho Sultan rcfjswl to
have any re-election.
Things wero in this position who;, threo
weeks ago, Napoleon and Eugenie paid a
private visit to Victoria, at her marne villa
in the Islo of Wight. A private vsit—but
for a public purpose. The aim of tie allied
Powers who combined against Russa is to
eroct the Principalities into an independent
sovereignty, and there is much intriguing on
this subject—nearly every one of tk) great
Powers having some pet of its own family for
whom a crown and scoptro would boa hand
some present. Napoleon has kept liß views
secrot, but it is bolieved that he desirts to . get
rid of bis. cousin, Prince Napoleon (son of
Jerome Bonaparte) by making himhead of
the new regality. His visit to Enghnd was
evidently for tho purposo of gettllg Lord
Palmerston to abandon Austria and sacrifice

Naiiavt, August!?, 1867.
Dear Sir : When one attempts writing a latter
from a, watering place in dog days, the natural in*
terenco LS, either that the place is really dull; or
elsejthe e'acDßthn tcribevdi amounts to a mania.
This oase_ has a new’element. ThePrtESs must be
'malnialnbd in its omnissiont character. ' You.
should j khow that the echos of the r -rboky Nahant
have beeh “wakened in his praise, and the re verba-,
rations are sweeping from the eastward, wViohwel
come hjm back to his ancient vocation. In abort,
-the Press has made a sensation among the gay
and grave who snuff those sea breezes. I cad too
my copy In a daily tour among tho fair and wise,
flitting from hand to hand, while expectant succes
sors stand anxiously awaiting their turn to - read
the best daily of this Olympiad. •
l - It is not neoossory to describe Nahanfc —Philadel-
phians have been hero before, and are now hero,
giving grace to the salons and adding the charms
.of esprit and learning to the conversation circles
around the hotel. The sea breezes which sweep
! around our peninsula bring refreshing coolness;
and the regular Nahanters, clothed in cloth coats, as
! they greet the linen-dad steamboat passengers,
from Poston, remark with an air of pity, “ Very
hot in Boston to-day, Is it not ?”
j*' Wo have plenty of'the usual amusements of a
1 watering place, as well as many which are peculiar
I to Nabant. The drives upon a narrow beach three
!. miles long, connecting this peninsula with the main
‘ land, with tho ocean on both sidcsof you to temper
the atmosphere, have a charm which nono can
know but those who have participated. The sailing
j and fishing require no reminder.
We are not without enjoyments that partake of
a graver n&turo. An established succession of dis
tinguished olergymeu of Boston, of various de
nominations, alternately lead tho worship at the
little church and strivo to reoal the hearts of its
fashionable congregation to the highest duties of
life. Yesterday a sermon from the Rev. Dr. Vin
ton, ft( St. Paul's, abounding in that mystic elo
jqqenoo thptmade the imagination of Paul chnrm
,the Roman Praetors. To-day, two holy women of
fry TfyioK gome
brands from the burning, pud to*iu«rron, ay,
to-morrow, the' loaf turns, and tho beautiful
Miss Eloiso Bridges, uho bus como hero not
unheralded by fame, is to charm us with dramatic
readings. The stage has its moralists at Nahnnt
who have held the mirror up to nature with success.
Mrs. Fanny ICemblo inhabits oao of tho cottages;
Miss Davenport resides with her mother at a pretty
cottage in Lyn n, immediately opposite Nahanf. On
Saturday evening Mr. John Brougham, the dis
tinguished author und' comedian, favored us by
reading one of his own drama’s, “All's Pair in
liove.” Tho literary merit and clever points of the
comedy made a great impresrionon tho audiences,
but the style of reading was not equal to that fun
and mirthful imitation which has made him so suc
cessful an actor. Apropos, B. has just olosed a most
prosperous and successful engagement at the How
ard, in Boston.
The conclusion of the regatta, at Now Bedford,
was followed by a temporary dispersion of the
yacht squadron. Besides the Volante and other
eastern yaohts, several of the Now York yachts
have found their way into our bay; the Starlight
and the Argo of the fleet, the Wanderer, have alike
been seen from N&bant bond os with snowy wings
they swept along the glad waters. The Wanderer
spent several days in these waters giving to tho nau
tical connoisseurs of Boston and Gloucester, capital
occasions for admiring and reporting on her fine
model, the exquisite finish of her cabins, aud the
capital tuisint whioh threw a golden sunshine
over tho fun and wit of the amateur blue
jaokots, who were making their first essays
on Yankee ood&sh and maokorel. Colonel John
son may well bo congratulated that he has
succeeded in putting afloat the largest and
finest yacht which ever graced these waters. We
admired her from the Nahant Hotel as she glided
past on her watery way, and participated in the
universal regret that the threatening prospects of
the weather debarred him from anchoring in the
cove and affording an opportunity for a closer in
spection. Wo have looked also for the Soadrift,
bat alas, in vain; the charms of Cape Cod have
been fatal to her spirit of unrest for this season.
A letter from a waterlog-place would be no letter
at all, unless the bops, beauties, and notables were
all duly recorded, and yet I feel thoroughly un
equal to a just performance of this part of the
duty. I have laugbod at the wit of John Phoenix,
Esq., who, with his interesting family, have been
amusing themselves for some weeks here.
I have talked “fish 15 'with the great amateurs,
Mr. M——, of New York, and Mr. 0 ,of Troy;
have watched the neat equipages of tho fashion*
&bleB, and the fast horses of the fast young men—
enjoyed tho merry laugh of the youthful belles, and
the voluble chat of tho dignified matrons, as they
lounge over a Into breakfast, after their husband’s
matinal to the city or the fish banks;
but not on this occasion can I attenuate my epistle
by comments on the lights and shadows of their
boauty and gentility. Should I praise those who
morit It, tho rest would gnaw the UDfortunates with
the teeth of slander. Fashion is a fierce democra
cy, whose decrees are made in darkness and exe
cuted without a pardoning power; its ostracism
roaches alike those who are too good, and those
who are too bad. Your correspondent, like Touch
stone, would be politlo with his friends, and is
therefore Silest.

A letter from tho country—X he God-mado, luxu
riant couutry ! a lottor from old Montgomery—
never-failing, Democratic Montgomery! and withal,
a letter from the domicil of your correspondent’s
ohildhood—may not be altogether unacceptable to
the readers of The Press. Tho season through
which the country has just passed has been one of
marvellous beneficence. Its matronly beauty still
wears a spring-like hue. ’Tls true, “ its flowery
spring” bus passed, the days of ‘ l its trammer's
ardent strength” ure fast drawing to a oloso, yot it
shows uot even the incipient marks of
“ Its sober autumn fodhg into ago.”
Tho mead still luxuriates bonuath a waving
velvet of living green, the rustling corn shows no
premonitory wilt of its ripening age, and the flow
ers of tho garden vie In their matchless hues with
the spring-like verdure of the dewy lawn. The
sunny smile of a bounteous Providence seems to

through all the interval till now, have been prog

this ungrateful distrust in the ways of providence

. be ruined. StUi the rains pantiimed; the,time for
- early haying bad com©) thp wiseacres of oux fast age,
even here m these rural parts, could submit to the
mistaken Ways of Providence no longer '; the grass
was Ug enough, the season was late enough, and tut
it they would, and cut it they did; but they didn’t
slop the rain! Days on days, to the number of a
weok and npw&rds, passed, with intervening spots
of sunshine,, which just continued lobg enough to
harass fhe unwise with a great amount andrepetition
of unnecessary labor, and finally obliged.them to
cart what had been intended to feed the rattle,
into barn-yards, fit only to be trodden under their
feet. It Is true, this bit of wholek>me experience
was purchased by the folly of comparatively a small
number, tho others having awaited the due iudica
i. lions of a mere auspicious bay-making season.
Finally, tho rains ceased. The season was unusu
ally late, to be sure, but considering the lateness
of its commencement , tho grass had even then,but
arrived at a proper age.
The grass, during this interval of delay, slack
ened not its growth, but was merely reaching an
e&sentia] maturity, without which its quality
would have half been sacrificed. '
Millions of additional tons of hay aro
have been tho result of.this inter-,
position. The grain harvest, of course, was cor
respondingly late, but it hae : been gathered at
last, not only in unequalled abundance as to bulk
in the strata, but equally prolific in its yield of
grain to the number of sheaves; and the quality
is excellent. The second crop of grass is now
ready for the soythe, and has, in fact, in many
places already baon commenced. Its abundanoo
will be proportionately as great as tho first. Corn

well graiued; and, as the earth is now well
saturated with moisture, tho protection of shade
afforded to tho root, together with tho natural for
niation of this plant to secure the benefits of dew,
renders all danger of future drought well nigh im
possible. Fruits of all kind, thus far, have been
also abundant, and those of later development are
equally promising; so that, taken all in all, this
season may well be said to be one of unprecedented
And now, in view of all this, how vain and un
grateful has been tbe solicitude of men ! The
lateness of spring was tortured iutoabaleful with
holding of the Almighty's goodness; the con
tiuuance of rain was productive of a fear thatcrops
would be ruined by an abortive luxuriance; and
the frustration of this ealculation waa followed by
tbe equally confident prediction that excessive
drought would oertainly blight »\\ the later crops—
a prediction bnsed, of oourse, upon tbe doctrine of
■meteoric retaliation.
But in the beneficence of Omnific Goodness all
these signs have failed , and our favored country
to-day, throughout her borders, presents a specta
cle of agricultural productivenesses-tainlyequaljDg
any one of the seven productive years of Pharaoh’s
vision. How far this fact should go towards re
buking the almost universal croaking about “crop
failures,” by a people who have never yet known
from experience what such a failure means, I
leave every Christian reader to decide for him
This much, however, wo may glean as a moral ,
that it is sadly ominous of tho ungrateful pro
clivities of our fallen nature.
That the foregoing reflections may constitute an
humble tribute to the beacon whioh the press and

a guide for our meditations, is the siuoere desire

of foicraf patronage, and consequently freir from
thn'Mitilßbriifc' atmospheie'pf a groat political
.metropolis.' If the purpose be to discover the most
.'reliable exponents tad the most tmthfdl reflex of a
eooservstito and-enlightened pnbllo sentiment, We
might expect;with as much confidence to flqd it in
localities where federal patronage is rarely sought
or bestowed, as with those possessed qf ft keener eye
and a stronger relish for such extrinsic ’stimulants
to the performance of a public duty, Tdo not
moan to charge'the presses referred to with being
operated upon by sordid or selfish motives; they
ate doubtless actuated by patriotic considerations;
but it is .wrong to assume that these are more to
be relied upon than thegr«r mats of the pouth
»m press, and Southern people, who have been
constrained, under the pressure of a high sense of
duty, to maintain a different attitude upon the
merits of the question referred to.
Having said thus much in reference to the public
Sentiment of - the South, I desire* very briefly to
state the causes which have induced this universal
feeling. Vo went into, the last Presidential con
.test upon the almost solitary issue of the princi
piea of equality and popular sovereignty embodied
iu the Kansas law. By and through that second
Declaration of Independence, the hitherto disfran
chised Booth was to enjoy equal rights in the Terri
tories. The stigma upon the Constitutions of Ten
nessee, and Kentucky, and Virginia, and the other
Southern Statee, was removed, and the people of
these States were informed that they were as free
to cany into new Territories the Constitutions and
Jaws under which they had been born, as were the
peoplo' of Haw England to transplant the Consti
tutions of Massachusetts and Connecticut. Free
from Congressional oontrol, and by necessary im
plication from executive interference, the people
were to frame their own Constitutions, in con
formity with their own Unbiased wishes, The
j South, under ail the disadvantages of her position,
I frankly aooepted the terms, and aimost by .the ac
' olamation of her people elected Mr. Baohanan to
tho Presidency upon this issue. The Southern peo
plo did not ask that tho Executive of Kansas
should interfere in their behalf—they did not even
desire it; but was it unreasonable, under the cir
goißatoryas-that they should doaandhixriaritnilitul
and insist that be shouitThot throw tho’wpight Cl
his official position in the soale against them ?
It is sufficient for my purpose,without pausing to
investigate the force and tendenoy of each par
ticular word or act, to show that the spirit of Gov.
Walker’s whole polioy has been, ab initio, indirect
eonfliot with the spirit of the Kansas law.and that, so
far as he was capable, {under the operation of causes
which it is not my design to investigate,) he hta
used his official position to the direct purpose oi
forcing Kansas into the Union as a free State.
Upon the appointment of Gov. Walker various
givings-out of his Secretary, of himself, and or the
press supposed to he in his confidence, created an
uneasy feoling in the publie mind of the South,
and a vague though general impression that
a treooherons application of the powers inci
dent to his position was within the scope of
his designs. Day by day these impressions
gained strength. The Washington Union soon
startled the pnblio by the announcement of a dis
covery, that the real purpose of the Republican
party was to force Kansas into the Union as—what ?
A Slave State ! This being taken for granted,
it waa unquestionably the wish of the Southern De
mocracy to do the same thing; and with two Buoh
powerful parties combined for the same purpose,
how could they fail of snneeesl Did tho Union
desire to create the impression that Governor
Walker canid avert suah a calamity ? Arid waa it
the purpose, even at this early period, to lay a
foundation for the bestowal of the rewards and the
oredit upon Governor Walker as the real champion
of 1 ‘fret Kansas ?”
In short, was it not & clear foreshadowing, an
authoritative, premonition of tho new tactics to by
introduced into Kaneas, and an effort to throat the
Republicans from their position, by charging them
with insincerity of purpose, in order that room
might be made for the real champion of freedom
in the person of Governor Walker? But let us
, now consider the reason assigned by the Union for
tho assumed opposition of the Republican party to
allowing Kansas to come into the Uuioa as a free
State. On tho brief sentence referred to, hinges
not only tbe policv within the contemplation of
the newly appointed Governor of Kansas, but the
justification and apology for that policy. The
reason assigned for Republican opposition to the
introduction of Kansas into the Union as a free
State was, that that party did sot desire to giro
peace to the country, and (tho Union goes on to de
clare) they know that the only way to give peace
to the country is to bring Kansas into the Union
\ as a free State !
Thus was clearly foreshadowed the purpose
which Governor Walker desigued to accomplish.
His subsequent official nets correspond with the
programme a a arranged and proclaimed iu the
Union. He goes to Kansas upon his mission of be
nevolenoe, to “give peace to that disturbed Terri
tory,” and wo have his antecedent declaration,
that “Mo only means'" of accomplishing this
coveted end is “to bring Kansas into the
Union as a free State.” As a salvo to the
wounded pride of tbc Southern people, and as
another apology for his conduct, be tells them in
effect that they bavo no business there—that tbe
soil and clim&to are not adapted to slave labor, and
that Nature and Nature’s God are with him, uud
cannot bo successfully resisted. To make assurance
doubly sure, he issues his mandate to tho Constitu
tional Convention, imperiously demanding, under
pain of hla personal and official displeasure, that
tboir Constitution shall be submitted in such
manner and to such people us he may dictate.
It is not necessary to discos the abstract merits
of Gov. Walker’B instructions to tho Constitutional
Convention, bocauso these have no relevauoy to the
question at issue; and the fact that hta supporters
have boen compelled to adopt this line of defence
proves that upon tho real subject of controversy
they can mako no defeuae. It is a virtual admis
sion that no defence can be made, and is in fact an
abandonment of the very principle which under
lies tho Kansas law. Tho argumentin brief is
this: Gov. Walker’s views and opinions are cor
rect and right in themselves; therefore, it is right
for Gov. Walker to attempt to enforce them. Upon
the same principle, with equal propriety, aud with
far more consistency, tho Republicans contrud that
it Is abstractly right to make Kansas a free
State; therefore, it is the right, as well as the duty
of Congress, to make it so All that I mesa to de
clare Is, that Gov. Walker has violated the spirit
of the Kansas law, and that his almost undisguised
purpose has been to adopt such a line of policy as
would accomplish the introduction of Kansas into
the Union as a free State.
Without entering further into details with which
the whole public is familiar, I ask you in all frank
ness, Is this tho feast to which the South was invited’
Is this off that they had a right to expect? Are,
theta the legitimate fruits of their successful efforts
to win a glorious victory for tbe National Democ
racy? Remember, that we asked no solitary ad
vantage over even our Black Republican foes.
We asked no interference tn our favor from Con
gress or tbqExecutive. Even in the flush of vio
tory, we only wld, “Give to every section an equal
chance, but do not coat the weight of executive in
fluence against us, and we are content to abide the

from this/ Iheir hostility has been redoubled, and
they have evinced a determination that Walker
shall sot have any legitimate claim to the coveted
honor of making himself the ohampioa of “free
Kansas.” It being conceded, then, that'he has
gain&d so strength for himself or party form the
adversary, has he strengthened or given unity to
the Democracy?. If jfabibl«,'he has failed still
more signally here than with his adversaries. Ha
has been the instrument of much mischief to the
only national party in the Union and the proper
course for that party to pursue is to repudiate
and his acts.
Let us all, North and South, replace ourselves
upon the great national platform, from which we
have, for the moment, been jostled by Governor
Walker. Let as again re-affirtn the doe trine
which allows the rights of sovereignty to the
people. Let us submit the question of slavery
in the new States, and-aU others, pow and in ail
time to come, to the supreme will of the qualified
citlsens of the Territories, without interference,
either on the part of Congress v 6r the' Executive.
Let us again join hands npoh a declaration of, and
an.unfiinching determination to adhere in good
faith to, those broad, catholic, gation&l principles
which carried- tu triumphantly through the last
perilous -crisis. of the nation. Thus may we tri
umph over sectionalism, and thus alone can the
Democracy maintain its title to the proud distine
lion of being, what it in truth is, the great na
tional conservative party of the Repv&lic !
The Booth has full and implicit confidence in the
loyalty and good faith of the Northern Democracy.
Nay, more: I hare an abiding confidence, that when
the subject of slavery is more thoroughly under
stood, and when 'the passions engendered by the
fanaticism, the jealousies, and the prejudices of
the hour, have given place to sober reflection, a
more matured judgment, and a stronger fraternal
regard for the citizens of the South, that the ranks
of the Democracy in the North will be swelled by
vast accessions from tho body of those who are now
.arrayed in hostile attitude against ca. But we
should at all times thoroughly understand each
other, and correct in. time any mischief likely to
arise oat of a misconception on the part of either.

points indicative of his purposes, I have assumed,

The South must maintain her present attitude.
To concede snore would be destruction. In the
Union we live as it were in a gl-sa house, while
our adversaries cast their missiles under the pre
tention of impregnable ramparts. While occupy
ing our present attitude, we are necessarily tbruwn
upon the defensive; we are powerless to commit
rotaliative aggressions upon our enemies. We
could not, if wo would, cast back the firebrand
which would “oommit cor dwellings to the flames,”
or arouse the dormant passions of a servile and
degraded race, to make desolate your homes,”
and to “pollute your hearths tense.” Under such
circumstances, how necessary, and, at the same
time, how natural, that we should vigilantly guard
tho outposts of our defences; thus ho should waich,
with jealous care, any effort to impair or evade o«r
conceded rights, and that wo should frankly but
earnestly ask our northern friends, and cue conser
vators of the Union everywhere, to extend their
necessary aid to the preservation, in letter
spirit, of our right* under the Constitution. I
have an abiding faith that perzaveranco .in such
a line of policy will in the ead triumph, even in
the South; and that the principle of equality of
rights of all tho sections of tbe Union, firmly main
tained and adhered to, in every conceivable emer

such a marriage ceremony as perhaps never oc
curred in the United States, certainly not in the
State of Kentucky. Mr John Blount, tho bride
groom, is a deaf mute, who woe brought up in Ala
bama, but received his education at the Kentucky
Institution for the Deaf and Dumb, at Danville,
where he is at present an accomplished and hi jhly
esteemed instructor. Ho is a tail and
specimen of a man, and is a gentleman in every
sense of the word. Miss Lueretia Ann Hoagland,
tho bride, is also a deaf mute. She was educated
iu the institution at Danville, and would pass for
a beautiful and accomplished lady in any circle of
society. Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Hoagland, the parents
of tho bride, at whoso house the marriage took
place, are aico both of them deaf mutes lhey re
ceived their education some twenty-five or tnirty
years since at the same institution. They have
threo other children—two of whom hear and talk;
their Youngest, a little boy of nine years old, is,
like tbe bride, a mute, and expects before long to
fj to the same institution, to obtain that inoitima
le blessing—a good education—which his father,
bis mother, and sister have received before him.
There were also present, as invited quests, some
twelve or fifteen educated mutes, all of them pre
sent or (ormor pupils of the above-named institu
tion. ~
The attendant of tbe bride, Miss Mary B-iyd,
from Harrison county, was as modest, bcautiiul,
and elegantly dressed a lady as adorns any draw
ing-room. She was formerly a class-mate of the
bride. Other young ladies who were mutes, were
present, who attracted marked attention by their
personal charms as well as by their superior in
telligence. Younggentlemen, also, were not want
ing, of fine appearance, education, and manners, to
leud interest to the occasion. In addition to the
mutes who were present, were others who, from
intercourse with the family of the bride or in some
other way, had become familiar with the lan
guage, so that the conversation of the evening was
held chiefly in the beautiful pantomime of the deef
and dumb.
But that which, perhaps, gave the most peculiar
interest to tho occasion was the faot that urn mar
riage ceremony was celebrated in the sign language
of the deaf and dumb! The officiating otargyraon
was the Rev. S. B. Cheek, Vice Principal of our
Hate Institution at Danville. Not a word su
heard during the whole ceremony—the prayer, the
propounding of tbe marriage covenant the bene
diction. and the blessing of the marriage fewt,
were all performed in the graceful and eloquent,
though voiceless language of nature, which may
be termed the vernacular of the deaf and dumb.
The mates who wore present all testiiied their pe
culiar delight, saying tboy had often witnessed
marriages oefore, but had sever understood whet
was actually said and done until this oocariou. It
was, taken altogether, emphatically a mat* fes
tival, in which all parties present were delighted,
and which furnished a most striking exemplifies
tion of what has been done and can be dose for
the unfortunate mute.
Attorney General Black has gone on a visit
to Bedford Springs to remain a week.
