A - Romantic Story.
The particulars of a very romantic
love story were developed before Judge
Dixon, holding Supreme Court, Cham
bers; at Patterson, ,N. J., Wednesday.
From the uncontracted teeth:way in
the case the loll Owing facts are gather
ed. Mr. John P. Clifford is a young
man who resides at,Yenkers, New Jer
sey. He We're, spa:table:J . omeg man of
gpod :WA* and . so when he, asked
to be received as suitor to the hand of ,
Mist Ellen McKilvey, of. Patterson, her
parents did not offer any objection.
The Courtship proceeded very smoothly
until Miss McKilvey was -suddenly
taken sick. - The lover spent anxious
days anlnights, but finally the young
lady recovered her health, Nit with it
came a lerrible afilictioh—the loss of
eight. . Before this the two had promis
ed to marry each other, ;now, the lady
offered to release him from his vow, but
ho would not consent_ to it, declaring
.that he' bad promised to laarry her and
that he considered evroraise as good as
if the ceremony hat been performed,
and that her misfortune had only in
creased his-affection for her. But her
misfortune seemed' also" to have increas
ed the affection entertained for her by
her paieuts, and these absolutely refus
ed to give their commit' tp the marriage,
though they dia not have any objection

lady. Now that she was stricken with

the only persons ' who ought to take
care of her. They told Mr. Clifford
that-finder the circumstances they could
never think of parting with their daugh
ter and requesting him to . giie up his
idea of marrying her. Re used all the
Arguments at his• command, but the ear
cuts were inflexible and would not be
persuaded.' The two lovers, - however,
were so attached to each lOther that it
seemed, too crael• to separate them al
together. and so Ir. Clifford was al
lowed continue his visits. Miss
McKilvey was over twenty-one years of
age, and consequently her own mistress,'
and Mr. Clifford -soon persuaded her
that the demands Of her' parents were
unreasonable. He finally persuaded
her to marry him, and the ceremony
was performed at St. Boniface'S Catho
lic, Church, in Paterson, on last Monday,
by Rev. Father liens. • When the par-
enta of the bride wore informed of what
had talt4n plac_is they refused to give
credit to it, and. accordingly wouldsiot
`allot/their danghter , to accompany her
husband to his home in Yonkers. Mr.
Clifford concluded to have the matter
settled at once, and accordingly con
suited Mr. D. 1. English, a lawyer s , 01
Patterson. The result was that a writ
of habeas corpua ivas granted by Judge
I Dixon on -Tuesday and made returnable
yesterday. The parents appeared in
court with the.daughter and alleged that
she was blind and that they had taken
care- of her all her life and did not know;
why they should not continue doing as
they desired to, though they did not
want to deprive 'her of her liberty in
any way. Mr. Clifford then produced
the marriage certificate and the parents
of the bride saw that what he bad told
them was not mere fiction, but the
truth. The - Court gave the 'custody of
the blind bride to her husband and be
led her away—the happiest man in the
court room. Mr. Clifford is not wealthy,
but he has a pleasant home and every
thing is in readiness there to receive
the mistress for whom he made so great
a sacrifice.
Personciting the Devil.
In a Gall !len village not far from

farce, !;The Devil to pay," with some

torn by briers, and she was forced to
take off her shoes to' wade streams, but
she pushed on and found her lover at
work in a field about one o'clock.
