F A KEhpY0J;_} IN the INTERESTS OP LYON COUNTY. !TEaM9 - w««.t *s? -------—-------- „ ..- m*n^g VOL. 3.SILVER CITY, NEVADA, THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 11, 1875.NO. 56 PARSONS’ PERQUISITES. Laughable Scene* in Clergymen’* Experience*. [From Appleton’s Jonrnal.] When the collector of rare and t-urious specimens of insects, and flowers, and minerals, finds new objects of interest, he sticks a pin in them, or puts them in alcohol, or labels them, and then sits down to count his collections, and see what he has actually gathered. In the same way we may stick pins in the various experiences of life, anti thus ■collects museum of rare specimens. The present collection of wedding anecdotes are specimens of eccen ■tricities at this trying hour that have come across the writer’s path. We see plenty of curious epithets in cemeteries; let us look at some wedding scenes as strange as any of those. A young clergyman, at the first wedding he ever had, thought it was a very good time to impress upon the couple before him the solemnity of the act. “ I hope, Dennis," he said to the coachman, with his license in is hand, “you have well considered this solemn step in life.” “ I hope so, your rivereuce,” an swered Dennis. " It’s a very important step you’re taking, Mary,” said the minister. " Yes, sir, I know it is," replied Mary, whimpei ing. “ Perhaps we had better wait aw hile.” “ Perhaps we had, your river ence,” chimed in Dennis. The minister hardly expected such a personal application of his exhortation, and seeing the five dollar note vanishing before his eyes, betook himself to a more cheerful aspect of the situation, and said : “Yea, of course it’s solemn and important, you know, but it’s a a very happy time, after all, when people love each other. Shall wo go on with tho service?” “ Y’es, your riverenoe,” they both replied, and they wero soon made one in the bonds of matrimony, and that young minister is now careful how ho brings on the solemn view of marriage to timid couples. A party came to a clergyman's house one evening to he married. Everything went on harmoniously until the woman came to the word “obey” in the service. Here a balky scene ensued. “ Never—never 1” she said; “ I did not know that word was iu the ser vice, and I will not say it!” “ Oh, dear,” ymonstrated her part ner, “do not make trouble now. Just say it—say it even if you don’t mean it. Say it for my sake—say it for your dear Jane's sake!” “ Never, never!" insisted the high spirited dame. “ I will not say what I do not mean, and I do not mean to obey. You must go on, sir,” she added, to the clergyman, “ without that word.” “That is impossible, madum,” re plied the minister. “ I cannot marry you unless you promise to love, cherish and obey your husband.” “Won’t you leave us fora little while together?” interceded the young man. “ I think I can manage her after a while." So the minister went back into his study and wrote nij his sermon for an hour and a half, and. finally, at a quarter pust ten o'clock, there —came a ispping— Aa of auiue one rapping, ▲ml the mild-mannered Benedict in formed tlio parson that a last, after a long wrostling of apirit, his “ dear Jane” had consented to sav “oliey," hut how that compromise waa brought about no one ever knew. 1 have heard this same clergyman relate how, after a wedding cere miniy on one occasion, which occur red in his own parlor, the husband whispered to hig brand new bride as they approached the door: “Mary, have you got any small change?” The old Swedes’ church in Phila delphia was the famous marrying ground for nearly 800 years to all the neighborhood and the churches in that viciuity. The record book of that pariah is teeming with mar riages. There has been an “exten sion” made to that department in every new register. Notes and mem oranda adorn the pages of the “wed ding columns," explanatory of the different couples. One clergyman kept a list of foreign sailors (with a wife, very probably, iu every port) *nd runaway country girls, whom he had refused to unite in matrimony because of liia suspicions, or because of the lateness of the hour, or of the absence of witnesses. Colored wed dings have always a richly humor ous side. Tlie colored race is a sus ceptible, imitative one, and when they are fine, as at weddings, they are generally superfine. A clergyman was called on upon one occasion to officiate at a colored wedding. “We assure you, sab," said the gentlemaaly darky, “that this yere wedding, sail, is to be ‘apropos’— quite a la mode, sail.” “Very well,” replied the clergy man, “I will try to do everything in my power to gratify the wishes of the parties." So, after the dinner and dancing and supping was over, the groom's “best man” called again on the min ister, and left him a ten dollar fee. “I hope everything was as your friends desired it,” said the urbane clergyman. “Well, sab, to tell the truth, Mr. Johnson was a little disappinted,” answeiod the groomsman. “Why, I took my robes,” said the minister. “Yes; sah; it wasn't that." "I adhered to tl>e rubrics of the church." "Yes, sah, that was all right." "I was punctua., and shook bands with the couple. What more could I do?” "Well, sah, Mr. Johnson, he kind o' telt hurt, you Nee, because you didn't salute the bride'.” I remember a friend who, in the the early days of his ministry, was met by a couple as he came out of church, who wanted to be married. He turned back to oblige the party, and found at the last that they made up their minds to drive ofT in their buggy to some other enurch. "But may I ask," he Inquired of the man, “why you first ask me to marry you, and then change your minds in this way?” No answer came from the groom, but the young woman, lifting the back curtain of the buggy and called out: “Well, you see, I hadn't got a look at the minister afore, and, to tell the truth, you're so young and innocent-like that I'm kind of leared you won't marry us right, so I’d rather trust myself to some one who's done it a good many times, and is sure he knows how.” THE DOWNFALL OF TWEED The New York correspondent of the Cincinnati “Gazettee,” speak ing of Tweed and his faithful wife, says : They were married when the man was a chairmuker, and they might have had a happy career had the former remained honest. They lived in a plain manner, mingled with mechanics’ society, and were the parents of two boys and two girls, good looking and healthy children. The era of meri tricions splendor has come and gone like a dream. The girls are married. Each had a diamond wedding and each has sunk into obscurity and poverty. The two Bons once held fine appointments in the service of the ring, but they are now only lounging arouud the City Hall. The mother is in a widow's desolation. The ill-gotten wealth is almost all gone. A mil lion and a half has passed into the hands of her lawyers, and her hus band is still a prisoner. A seedy and corpulent old man inhabiting a pair of rooms in Ludlow-street Jail is all that is left of oue who has been Al derman, Congressman, chuirmaker und lawyer, Commissioner of Parks, Public Buildings and Docks, State Senator, and for seven years the auto crat of this city. The only redeem ing feature is the faithful wile, who is reducing herself to poverty in hope of obtaining her husband's release. Imprisonment for Life.—Kob’t Douglas, who was taken through here a few weeks ago by Sheriff Boyd, of Gram county, Oregon, who arrested him in Eastern Idaho, near the Montana line, has been sen tenced to the penitentiary for life, for the murder of a stranger in Jor day Valley, a year ago last August. Douglas plead guilty to the charge of manslaughter.—Silver Stale.
