Tlio btf-tleof prepa- ration ot er, all cirepl Tnm White and Hugh AVnldron were told to go into Iho front par- lor. The two young mm wero taken into llic hall, which was nlmubl dark, and each tun there-joinr-d by a lady, and arm-in-arm thet stopped into the dimly-lighted, parlor. Tom nnd his patlncr were iu front, and liter flopped hufuro a queer bent figure with n litige piir of green spectacle'? and.i lumbled of hair up and down Jo tho utmost confusion. In a tcry low voice, with a hurried stamiiiciing'-pceeli this queer oolnng mortal began a brief marriage scr- vire. which was duly responded to by the couple before him. AVhtn the last word was irononnccd, they slopped aside and thepanin ceremony was begun ngain. A suppressed liter came from a dark corner as Waldron was making bin an'tvers, which eo confuwd him that hit. companion and her responds were unnoticed. A moment more and it wns over and all crowded gaily around to pitc Uicir to the newly wcd- Jcd pair. Moro lights were brought in, and tiicn for tho first time Jjugji AValdron looked at the ludy beeido him, and started as he be- held Maggie Kogers, blushing and smiling liKc tho happiest bride in Christendom, ille wa? astonished for he had supposed her ten miics away at her aunt's.

And then he also realized that old Squire Higg'ius had officiated at this im- promptu wedding, and not Charlie Graves got up for the occasionT as he had supposed. No chance for comment was given for nt that morncut the village musicians came iu, and he must take his plnco in tho open quadrille. There was a couple of hours dancing, aud then supper aud much mirth, and then it was one o'clock, and thu company were leating. Nearly all bad gone, when Mrs. Vane came up to Waldron, who was alone, and jou and Mrs. Waldron btop here to-night? 1 have a room prepared foryou, which I think will bcplcasanlcrforyouthati Maggie's home, or yours at the hotel.

The tinxt week Mr. and Mrs. Waldron left Grayullc, going to eeeka home farther West, md a month later the widow set sail for her ar-olf home in the Golden Stale., The villagers talked aud laughed over the vedding for a long lime, wondering how the ridow managed it so.cleverly.

J- Long Island Bail-road Disaster. A Collision occurred on tho Long Bland f Hail-road, on tho 2Sth of August, by. which a number of persons wero killed, and others terribly maimed. The "New York Post" gives tho following particulars: The Grecnport u A. 31. train, which should not leave the Jamaica station unless Hun- ter's Point train had arrived, was started from Jamaica ten iniuutca before time, and met the oilier Irain under full speed about a mile west of tint village. The Greenport train consisted of nine or ten passenger cars, and the other train of only three or four. The signal of tho approaching train from Hunter's Point was heard by several passen- gers on the other train, and one gentleman, who was standing on platform of the smok- ing car of tho last train, looked out, saw tho danger, and leaped off, without sustaining any injury. The Hunter's Point train was under full speed, M the conductor doubtless felt secure of his right of way; but tho other conductor had begun somewhat lo slacken Ihe speed of his train, as he was well aware of tho insc1- curity of his position. There was sufficient time, indeed, for all the firemen, and conductors to jump off, which they did, without receiving serious iujury. Thq velocity with which Ihc trains camo together is, however, sufficiently attested by its lerriblc effects. The eastward bound train was completely ran down, and crushed to pieces by the superior weight of the other. The tccnc was so frightful to those who es- caped injury; that some fainted wilh terror' at the nppslliug eight. were hanging suspended beaenth the wreck bj the led tendons of their legs, Itoth of had! been lorn away- in the collision. -Others were suspended by the throat, across which strong iron tenders had been crashed, and thus iu a moment the vital spark had, been extinguished. Others .were lying beneath' tons of wrecked cars, and moaning out th'e fuw brief moments uf life remaining to them on earth. At first it eecmcd as though few could have escaped from the dreadful catas- trophe alive, but in a few after another of the least unfortunate victims suc- ceeded in crawling from beneath tho awful mass ofbrokcn timbers, and crushed and dy- ing human forms, until it was apparent that nut more than fifteen immortal souls had bccu hurried into life presence of their maker." Three of the lluntcr'g Point cars were torn to pieces or wedged into each other, and on these the largest loss of life occurred. The shock was so great that the trains rebounded from each other two or three hundred feet! The number of passengers on tho train froni the cast was so great that many were stand- ing on the platforms; and as the fronts of two or three of the cars were crushed tn.most of these passengers wero either killed or wounded. An eye-witness to the scenes writes to the "Express" as follows: As 20011 as the accident occurred I jumpr cd from the train and ran forward. I soon discovered that the accident was more serious than I had at first supposed. A jonng lad, who I understand to be" n newsboy, had just been removed from the train. He was badly cut in the head aud nearly dead. I called some friends, and we conveyed hint to Ihe shade of an apple trco in an adjacent field, where he soon died. 1 then raw a man fast between two cars, held by his legs: some men were endeavoring lo push the car ahead so as lo relieve htm. i took hold aud called loudly lo the other pas- sengers; a sufficient number then got hold, and we succcedid in pushing it a few inches that the man was taken out. I understood he EOOU died. I then ran lo the olher train, (tho train going East.) nnd found that many o'f tho passengers were badly hurt nnd bleeding Hut the most shocking sight of nil tras ouo poor man lying jammed between two earn on this train his legs hanging down, but mangled in the most dreadful condition. It was very difficult, to remove him. for one car lay partly over the car upon which the men lay, and might at any time fall on the poor creature or those assisting him'. The car wa.i with difficulty propped up, and be wss ulti- mately removed. Both legs have to amputated, if he survives. Tennessee.
