Spme Cynic said that ""when you enter
the courts of Cupid you quit the courts
of icason." We are a patron of no such
gasconade, lor observation teaches us,
thar the most level headed and enter
prising ol our life's acquaintances, have
either assumed the ties ot marriage, or
arc making eflorts in that direction
?Diligent and wide spread scrutiny, ad
monishes us that men, with few excep.
dons, which only corroborate the pro
position, are insignificant factors in the
business of lite until marjicd.
What a spur to eflbit is the confiding
love oi a true hearted woman? That last
lond look ot hers, hopeiul and encourag
ing, has more power within lt, to nerve
your soul to high deeds than all the ad
monitions of your friends and relatives
Your heart beating large with hope
quickens the flow upon the brain, and
you make exhilirating vows to win great
ness. Let the poets say what they will
these aflections of ours are not blind
stupid creatures, to starve under polar
snows, when the very breezes ot Heaven
:.re the appointed messengers to guide
them to warmth and sunshine. In this
connection, we quote with pride and con
gratulation, "a gem from "Paradise
Lost'*-what Raphael sings to Adam
a Classic song:
The thoughts and heart enlarges ; ball
-His seat in- reason, and is judicious, ii
The scale by which to Heavenly love
thou mayest ascend."
1 have a little packet-not very large
tied up with narrow, crimson ribbon
now soiled with frequent handling, whicl
far into some winter's night I take dowi
Irom its nook upon my shelf, and untie
and open, and run over with such joj
and such sorrow, as I am sure make:
me for weeks after a kindlier and hap
pier--, man-What gentle admonition!
what tender affection 1/ God have mere;
On him, ?vho outlives the sentiment, tha
such - admonition and such anectioi
kindles. Marriage, il happy, which i
should always be. and will always bc
when based on reciprocal conditions o
love, esteem and respect. No man witl
any true nobility of soul can ever make
his heart the slave ol another's condes
eension. Marriage inspires and steadier
men, while it rarely happens uiai an oit
bachelor serves lor any good purpose hi:
day and generation: though it must tx
confessed, that many old maids, it not
soured, are not only good but useful. Sc
tully docs this tact commend itself to ou
acceptance that we would hang all old
bachelors ol lorty-five, and incarcerate
all old maids ol lorty in a nunnery. I
this should become law, what an anima
ted panorama lile Would be? How trul;
has a poet said:

W. J. Covington and Capt W. H. Mc
Intyre. Immediately after the marriage
the bridal party returned to Bennetts
ville, and thc dinner came off the da
following. The weather is so capricious
at this season, that we were a little ap
prehensive, especially, as the cloud
threatened rain, but, as time advanced
aurora with rosy fingers pushed bac
thc sable curtain of night and usherei
in a day bright with sunshine, warr
and soothing, bringing later on. an nu
conscious happiness to the invited guist:
There was a balmy influence suggestiv

ot all ol these lelicitously blended int

by a remnant of 100 bt'oi of cotton of ls

popular io Society circles whore ho min
gles, and highly honored and esteemed
?moog wen of business. Wo feel eafe in
the opinion, for we have known Mr. Ouv .
logion from boyhood, that what was said
by Jefferson of Freak!ont Monroe towh;
It he could be turned intiido out not u lop
roos Rpot would bo disclosed, oanld bj Haid
ol Mr .Covington, without a fear of fulsome
adulatior. The rloh prisa ho woo was not
gained, but by vigorous effort Who would
boast of a victory that cost no strategy,
and no careful disposition of the forces?
Who would bulle ti u euch anooe&i, aa roy
Uncle Toby's in a baok garden, with only
a Corporal Trim for assailant? By some
strange metonymy not laid down ld the
booka, the captor became captive, and Mr.
Covington, to-day, is the happiest mac in
South Carolina. We extend to Mr. and
Mrs. Covington our heartiest congratula
tions with a hope, that their married lite
may glide aa smoothly as a rivulet of oil
over polished marble, and, that its oloso
may be na an autumnal sunset made glor
ious with crimson and gold.
The guests were a representative body
of the-beaut y and chivalry of our coan ty.
Men who, by tho magnitude of their at.
tainmonts and nobility of their oharaoterp,
havo abed a halo of glory around Marlboro
county, which culminated in giving her tho
proud character that can never be taken
from her. In the number wau Mr and
Mrs. John S. Moore, to whoso unremitting
care and scrupulous attention ia tbolr
school room muob of Mr. Covington'o pho
nominal nu cecea in life is due. The people
of the Pee Dee section owe those venerable
educator.! a debt of gratitude ihey can
Dover poy. but it is gratifying to know tho
memory of their good deeds can never be
obliterated, but ?rill rise up in the twi
light of history like aomo grand old cathe
dral lifting itself lu imperishable beauty
above the objecta of oartb, mn jen ti o in ita
vast proportions, awful iu UB solemn state - i
liaevs, sublimo in its severo simplicity.
Their influence reaobes from the mountains
of Virginia to the undulating nhorea ef thu
briny Atlantic. Mr. Covington'B PoBtor,
Rev. W. B. Baker, was present. We were
pleased to know ho is so highly esteemed
by his charge. His Physician, Dr. J, F.
Kinney, and his beautiful wife wore also
in evidonco. Tho merchant prinoas of your
progressive city, Capt Weatherly and 0 B.
Crosland, contributed effusively to the en
joyments of tho dinner. Wo must not omit
Bon. P. A. Hodges, your mayor, the most
polished, courtly and handsome man in
Marlboro nor can wo pass Hon J. T. Cov
