Chinese least the ceremony of leading the Bride from her father s House into the Carriage and from the vehicle to the i was standing nearly an hour up to Iny Ankles in mud in the midst of .1 swarm of Long and Short tailed chinese men women and children. I could never had so much patience to wait the coming of a lady under such disagreeable circumstances As soft mud is to thin Calfskin boots if a band of musicians had not kept up during the time so dreadful a noise with such dreadful instruments and in such a fearful Way i was so astonished and in fact so taken by i did not recover my senses till the Bride arrived. The violin with two strings and a squeak instead of a sound seemed to be the chief instrument while a Large drum and cymbals gongs and a certain kind of rattle boxes Al ways joined at a time you least expected them. Each of the musicians were play ing is it seemed his own favorite Melody in his own measure caring not a Straw for the rest and i would have Given anything to have been Able to Stenograph those sounds Only to let the Render have the be refit of them. A Large Carriage ornamented with All kinds of red Silks and plumes drove up before the door and then the Bride appeared throwing every thing around her of course entirely to the Shade. I am a poor describer of ladies 1 will try to give my fair readers at least idea of How she looked. She wore a party coloured silk dress sprinkled Over with innumerable Small Flowers and Blos which fell Down to the ground where some bricks had been Laid to form a kind of pathway for the lady and the followers. Small feet she most certainly had for she belonged to the higher it seemed was Only Able to move Inch by Inch while a couple of bridesmaids walking at her Side were supporting and guarding her on each flank. Only now and then could i see the Broad tips of her tiny feet Clumsy i had better Sav come Forward but slide Back directly As if afraid of thu aim nor m delightful u summer a Day. A Marysville Ibe Gromly intuited ence. Upon arrival at their rooms Pat her husband commenced a a ruin lecture. All at once Lola i volcanic bowl heaved its fires of anger and indignation. Sam her usual costume she seized with Iron grasp and Tiger ferocity his editorial neck strangled him until insensible and then with a powerful muscular movement she raised her fanta Slio and kicked him out of doors. That night he sought and obtained lodgings elsewhere. Next Day the interference of Mutual friends so arranged Lola s unmanly con duct. The insulted Mary stillians were afterwards reconciled their wounded Hon or became healed by Lola s Graceful movements in the spider dance. The City. Certainly if in Moo a place Portland there la not one thirtieth part of the liquor drank Ai formerly the Law Baa worked wonders for its enemies admit that in the Rettof the rest of the state it almost completely routed.

She had painted herself White or rather Gray and never raised her eyes during her passage to the Carriage in the customary rites which do not Al Low her to lift her head nor look upon the bridegroom till actually wedded to him. What ailed the two girls who had feet Large enough to keep anybody steady i know not but they were Shakin to licit Heads All the time apparently not at All satisfied with Tho proceeding. Close to the door of Tho Carriage at the moment the Bride was entering two men most Likely stepped hold ing upside Down an old Rice Sieve High Over her head under which she passed. The bridegroom a thin awkward but not bad looking chinese followed and i liked his feet the least of his person for he stepped with one of them upon 7113 toes while passing me.

If the people of this county Hod hurried up for the Maine Law we should have saved the Cost of this the Maine Law does away the necessity for jails by keeping men in a condition that they will not commit crime.

Knowing How Admira Bly adapted to the con nubian state was the gentle and virtuous reek submissive and tractable in temper Domestic in habits and tastes we fondly hoped to hear of her imitating the matronly Virtues of the roman Dames. Imagine then our disappointment when we read the following in a California letter to a Nashville paper san Francisco july 20, 1853. Ting this q i cation to the people for their action it is certain that no class of our citizens will have a right to complain if the Law is passed after it Shail receive a majority of the vote of the state. It is desirable therefore that a full expression of the people be Given upon this Point. And the friends of the Law will Bear in mind that there is nothing obligatory on the next legislature to pass the Law even if it is voted by in overwhelming main Rita and the Only Chance of getting the Law is to see that men of the right stamp Are elect cd As members of the Assembly.

The editor of the Portland inquirer Austin Willey who is certainly As far As character is concerned As worthy of credit As or.

Portland is to the state of Maine what Boston is to Massachusetts it is the commercial Emporium tie chief City and is filled with a class of business men who like the rum merchants of Boston do what they can to defeat the execution of the Law. It is worthy of remark in this connection that when Tho Law was first passed or. Cal was one of its firm sup porters but became offended with Cal Dow the then mayor of Portland for some supposed allusions to him in some of his writings in which he was represented As a Man who took a Little of the Critter himself.
