Notes and Comments by an Occasional
This municipality was enlarged and
inflted last Wednesday by the pres
enlCe of light Reverend Bishop Lynch,
of the Roman Catholic church, the
object of whose visit was the .perfor
mance of the hymeneal ceremony for
his nephew, the son of Dr. Lynch, of
Columbia, and the' beautiful and ac
conplislhed daughter of Colonel
'rovence;'Miss Minnie. The solemni
ties were very imposing, and of short

sible by those acquainted with other
customs of' this gratnd old church.
