MARRIAGE OF BESSIE STEWART
DAUGHTER OF THE SENATOR.
DAUGHTER OF THE SENATOR. Washington (May 4) Correspondence of the New
Honest Miners' Camp was alive to
night. Senator Stewart's grand new
houss, w'hich is so properly called
castle Stewart in popular parlance,
was the scene of one of the most
brilliant and gorgeous ntertain
ments ever given in this city. Both
bride and groom being well known
in society excited an unusual degree
of interest. There is, perhaps,
not another lady in the city of her
own age who is so universally popu
lar as the bride of whom we write.
The beautiful dwellins was illu
minated from basement to roof, and
once inside the door you were greet
ed by air atmosphere redolent ot
flowers. The stairs ascending to the
i.arlor floor were so ornamented, and
the agate vases at the entrance of the
main hall were filled with fragrant
blossoms. lhe guests assembled
earlv, to make sure of being in time
for the ceremony, and a gay crowd
filled the lower rooms before eight
o'clock p. m. There are four rooms
on the first floor; on the right the
reception room and large dining
room, on the left the grand salon,
and across the rear the spacious ball
room. Everywhere were seen works
of art and exquisite flowers. In the
drawingroom or salon the marriage

and the two attendants, Miss Annie
Stewart and Lieut. Totten, of the na
vy stood in the large rectangular
, -l . 1. c
recess on tne soutn siae, iue sena
tor and Mrs. Stewart close beside
them. The background was superb
tapestrv curtains, chocolate ground,
with brilliant figures, which took
the prize at the Paris Exposition,
and a magnificent length mirror,
while on either side two mirrors ex
m.lv ounosite each other reduplica
ted the scene. Al-ove the heads of
the bridal couple hung a lovely bas
ket of guilt wire, filled with white
flowers, and lust Denmd smjou ui
agate vase filled witn wedding uio
The quests gathered in the parlor,
and those who could not draw near
watched the tableaux in the mirrors.
Among the guests were President
Grant, CoL Fred Grant, and Miss
Nellie Grant, and Jlr. fcartons, jure.

daughter; Secretary Robeson, the

wife, Costor, Miss Edes, Mr. Kil

Mrs. Bisketts, Mr. Edward Stanton,
General Bale and daughters, and
Judge McArthur and his wife.
The bride's dress was simply but
extremely rich, consisting of a heavy
white rep silk with box-plaited
flounce of the same across the front
breadth. The long train was per
fectly plain, and caught back with
broad sash of white ribbon. A vail
of illuson enveloped her head, be
neath which was the wreath of or
ange blossoms. A tripple row of
pearls, secured by a cross set with
diamonds and small solitaire pearls
in the ears, constituted the ornaments
Mrs. Stewart's dress was rose col
ored silk, with ruffles of Valenci
ennes lace each row held by a wreath
of white embroidery.

Oat of compliment to the groom
all the army and navy officers wore
full dress uniforms. The dressing of
ladies surpassed that of any other
occasion in this city.
The young bridesmaid, who is
fair blonde, was dressed in a simple
white dress with flowers, and her
hair floated loosely over her should

that Senator Jones presented a solid
silver service ; the President a silver
ladle, Mrs. Stewart the diamond ear
ings worn by the bride, and the
groom the pearls which adorned her.
Many large baskets and boquets
of flowers were sent, and an anchor
suspended by red, white and blue,

A magnificent supper was served,

most effective means for securing

Newspaper advertising impels in

is of good quality and at a fair price,
the natural result is increased sales.
Newspaper - advertising is a per

the goods advertised, because it is
a permanent influence always at

Newspaper advertising is the most
energetic and vigilent of salesmen ;
addressing thousands each day, al

Newspaper advertising promotes

A Fickle Woman. In 1749 oc
curred an odd episode in Wesley's
lite. Un one of his missionary
journeys he was taken sick at New
castle, where he was nursed by Grace
Murray, one of his female "helpers,"
a handsome clever woman of four
and thirty, Wesley himself being
twelve years older. He asked her
to marry him. She seemed amazed
and repiled, "This is too great
blessing. I can't tell how to believe
it. This is all I could have wished
u ider heaven." Wesley, quite natuj
rally took this as a formal betrothal.
But Grace had not long before nurs
ed John Bennett, a Methodist preach
er, of about her own age; and Wes
ley was soon astounded by a joint
letter from Grace and John, asking
his consent to their marriage. Thei:
ensued a comedy lasting for months
the like of which no playnght -was
ever ventured to put upon the
stage. Grace would have been qnite
content with either of , her lovers,
were it not for the other. But, con
trary to all example, it was the ab
sent one whom she wanted. When
Wesley was with her she longed
for Bennett; when Bennett was
present she longed for Westley.
How many times she broke and re
newed her engagements with each
it would be hard to tell. "I love
you," she said to Wesley, "a thou
sand times better than I ever loved
John Bennett, but I'm afraid if I
don't marry him he'll run mad."
That very evening 6he promised her
self again to Bennett. A week after
she told Wesley that she was de
termined to live and die with him.
She indeed wanted to be married at
once, but Wesley wished for some
delay. Grace said she would not
wait more than a year. A fortnight
later she met Bennett, fell at hisfeet
and acknowledged that she had used
him ill. They were married a week
after. This strange marriage seem
ed to have turned out a happy one.
Bennett died, in the triumph of
faith, ten years later. Grace sur
vived until 1803, dying at the age
of eighty seven. For years she was
a bright light in the Methodist
society. Wesley saw her three
days after her marriage, and but
once more on earth. Thirty nine
years after she came to London on
a visit to her son, and expressed a
wish to see Wesley. He was now
eighty-five years old, she past seven
ty. What could they now say ex
"Hail and farewell?"
Historical Evidence in a Coal
Deposit. The Scranton (Pa.) Re
publican says: On Saturday after
noon a miner named Martin i,ough
ery, working at No. 10 mine of the
Pennsylvania coal company's works,
at Pittston, while in the act of
breaking a massive piece of coal
which he had dislodged, discovered
imbedded in the centre of it, what ap
peared to be a small wooden box of
an oblong shape. Upon touching
the box it crumbled into dust like
fungus, and disclosed a copper
whistle, having a flint mouth piece,
and in other respects shaped like our
ordinary tin whistles. The miner
brightened it up, applied it to his
mouth, and made it sound doubtless
for the first time in centuries. The
spot where it lay is about one hund
red feet beneath the surface of the
God's Steward. A writer in the
Princetown Review, says;
"Judge Davenport, of the bench
in Connecticut in a former genera
tion, was noted or his Puritauic
8terues8, which often seemed angu
lar, harsh, and repulsive. In a sea
son of short crops and great scarcity
he had ample store of corn, and his
granaries were full. He sold his
surplus to those in need at the gener
al rates, refusing the famine prices
of the markets, and trusted or gave
away to those who were unable to
pay him. But when a man of prop
erty dssired to purchaso some corn
at these prices, he sternly refused,
saying "You are able to supply your
wants at market rates, tho poor
connotjlhold my supply as Gods
Steward for them!"
