A Romantic Marriage

Quite a romantic marriage was celebrated here on Tuesday evening, the contracting parties being Mr. Wm. Lawson and Mrs. Nancy Ann McCabe, relict of the late Michael McCabe of this place. For some months the fair bride, who is upwards of sixty years of age, has been in her dotage, her mind running entirely on marriage. She did not hesitate to enter into conversation with men, and especially young me, on any occasion when opportunity offered, and made no secret of her desire to again be encircled by the golden chains of wedlock. this fact coming to the ears of Mr. Lawson (who was a beau of Mrs. McCabe 25 years age) and being a widower himself, he wrote to the old dame, asking for her hand and heart. She replied, freely giving up these treasures into his keeping. it was arranged that he should come down on Monday to have the ceremony performed, and in order that he should know his affianced on his arrival it was arranged that she was to stand on the platform and hold up his letter. He did not come on Monday, but on Tuesday arrived, and the marriage was performed by Mr. Snider the same evening. A crowd of boys accompanied the couple to their home, and entering with them made such a disturbance that a neighbor went and took them to his own house. The happy pair left for Colborne on Thursday night. It is said that the groom is a well-to-do farmer.
