VW Hours of a Single Gentleman.
This morning, April first, at half put eleven
precisely, an unfortunate young man, Mr. Edwin
Pinkney, underwent the extreme penalty of infet•
nation, by expiating his attachment to Mary Ann
Gale, in front of the altar railings of St Mary's
Church, Islington.
It will be in the recollection of all thole friends
of the parties who were at the ionems' party at
Brighton, two years ago, that Mr. Pinkney was
there, and there first introduced to Mary Ann, to
I whom he instantly began to direct particular attn.
tione—dencing with her not lees than six sets that
evening, and handing her thing. at supper in the
most devoted mariner. From that period commen
ced the intimacy between them which terminated
in this morning's catastrophe.
Poor Pinkney had barely etta:ped to his twenty
, eighth year ; but there is no reason to believe that
but for reasons of a pecuniary nature, his single
life would have come earlier to an untimely end.—
, A change for the better, however, having occurred
in his circumstance!, the young lady's friends were
induced to sanction his addrewee, and thus to be
come accessories to the course Fir which he has
just suffered.
The unhappy man pasted the lest night of his
bachelor existence in his solitary chamber. From
half-peat eight to ten, he was busily engaged in
writing lettere. Shortly after ten o'clock, hie younger
brother, Henry, knocked at the door, when the
doomed youth told him in a firm voice to come in.
On being asked when he meant to go to bed, he re
plied, "Not ye:." The question was then put to
him hew he thoeght he could sleep ; to which his
answer wee, "I don't know." He then expressed
a desire for a lunar and a glans of grog, which
were eupplied him. Hie brother, who set down
and partook of the be re!reshrnente, now deman
ded if ho would want anything more that night.—
He said "Nothing," in a firm voice. His affection
ate brother then rose to take leave, when the devoted
one coneiderately advised him to take care of him-
ee If.
Precisely at a quarter of a minute to seven the
next morning, the victim of Cupid, having been
celled according to his desire, rose and promptly
dressed himself. He had the self-control to shave
himself without the slightest injury ; for not even a
Llpto... 1.1. .1.••• CY WWI tue upczauki•
It would seem that he had devoted a longer time to
his toilet than usual.
The wretched man woe attired in a light blue
dress coat, with frosted metal buttons, a white waist
coat and nankeen trousers, with patent leather
boots. He wore around his neck a variegated satin
need, which pertly concealed the Cortina of his
bosom. In front of the scarf was inserted a breast.
pin of conspicuous dimensions. Having descended
the steirceee with a quick step, he entered the
apartment where his brother and a few friends were
awaiting hin. He shook hands cordially with all
present, and on being asked how he slept, evewered,
"'cry well," and to the further demand as to the
state of his mind, said, “Ho felt happy."
One of the party having hereupon suggested that
it would be as well to take something before the
melancholy ceremony was gone through he exclaim
ed with some emphasis, eDecidedly." Breakfast
was accordingly served, when he ate the whole of
a French roll, a large round of toast, two sausages,
and throe new laid eggs, which he washed down
with two great breakfaet cups of tea. In reply to
an expression of astonishment on the part of a
person present, at his appetite, he declared that he
never felt it heartier in his life.
Having inquired the time, and ascertained it
was ten minutes to eleven, he remarked that ~i t
would soon he over." His brother then inquired
whether he could do any thing for him ; when he
said he should like to have s glass of ale. Having
drank this, he appeared: eatieSed.
The fatal moment now approaching, he devoted
the remaining brief portion of his time to distribu
ting among his friends those little articles which he
would ecscr no longer want. To one he gave his
sew cash, to another hie tobacco etoppar t and he
charged his brother Henry with his latch key, with
instructions to deliver it after all
_ores over, With
due solemnity to his landlady. .
The clock et length struck eleven ; and et the
same moment he was informed that a cab was at
the door. Ho merely said, am ready," and al
lowed himself to be conducted to the vehicle; into
which he got with his brother—his friends follow
ed in others.
Arrived at the tragical spot, a short but anxious
delay of some seconds took place ; after which
they were joined by the lady and her friends. Lit.
tle was said on either side; but Miss Gale, with
customary decorum, shed tears. Pinkney entlea,
teed to preserve composure ; but a twitching in hit
mouth and eyebrows proclaimed his inward agile.
The ill starred bachelor having submitted quietly
to have a largo white bow pinned to his buttonhole,
now walked side by side with Miss Gale, with a
firm step, to the altar. He surveyed the impelling
preparations with calmness, and gazed, unmoved,
on the clergyman, who, enlisted by the clerk. was
waiting behind the railings.
All requisite preliminaries having now been set
tled, and the prescribed melancholy formalities gni , e
through, the usual question was put, Vs ilt thou
have this woman for thy wife? To which the
rash youth replied in a distinct voice, ''l will," He
then put the fatal ring upon Miss Gale's finger ;
the hymenial none', was adjusted, and the poor fel
low was launched into matrimony
