Saturday, of last weik, Mr. John PyleB,
?eed "2 years, was married to Mrs. Sarah
0. Carico, aged SO, at tbe Court House in
Fairmont, Marlon county. The National
says the bride whs dresafd in a plain lin
sey frock?tariM hoops?out in the most
economical style, and abbreviated about
n foot from the ground?exhibiting
feet and ankles indicative of great mi*
cle if not altogether of admirable beau
ty. . Oo her he?d Bhe wore a "ehaker"
bonnet and part of her Bilvery hair waB
locked behind by a tall,white, born comb,
while the largorportion had played truant at
toilet nnd fallen over in a brilliant circle
across ber forehead and rested in a posi
tion that would have adorned and beauti
fied any other goddeea. Abcut her neck
and shoulders she had a faded gingham
handkerchief which was the only article of
imported goods she wore. The man of her
choice was also clad in a suit of domestic
minufactuie, dyej iu butternut juice and
col by a tailor of " ye olden time." He
seemed to tskc great pleasure in exhibiting
H genuine bandana, which he carried for
convenience, in his pantaloons pocket,
(rem whence be frequently drew it to wipe
the big drops of perspiration from bia face
The.v left town in a wagon for their ooun

notice ot the capture ol Gens. Crock and
Kefley, by tbo rebel McNeil, which recently
appeared in the Richmond Enquirer, and
which was copied by us on Saturday morn

to Captain Thayer Melvin occurs:
"But the party was not content. Ascer

but as gently as possible under the circum-!

As it is well known hereabouts that
Capt. Molviu is not a married man, and
never was, and never expects to be, it may
he proper to state, that, when captured, be
was Sleeping alone, and was not even
dreaming of a blushing hride. The story
by McNeil, to the Enquirer is without
foundation in fact.
JSyBtrr little was done on Saturday
in the way of shipping by river. The river
itself was on the rampage until yesterday
nt dark, whon thero was about thirty-feet
and rising, slowly.
The citizens on Water street were very

In West Wheeling, as well as we could
judge from appearances, the water was
over a considerable portion of the town.?
The Island locked like a gem in the ocean,
and the view was rather more enchanting
from this Eide of the river than to the peo
ple living there.
Pittsburgh advices would indicate that
the river had reached its highest point
ana we need not apprehend much damage
nt this point.
??-Row in Bbidoepobt.?Some \mer
?can citizens of African descent, recently
enlisted in the service of Uncle Sam, went
over to Bridgeport on Saturday to have a
spree. One of Ibem had an altercation
wi.h a citizen of the place and flourished
? pmol eomewhat wildly. The pistol was
taken from him and yesterday morning the
party west over again to Bridgeport with
the avowed intention of recapturing the
article. A considerable row occurred in
which a number of shots were fired, one of
them taking etTect in the heel of a bystan
der. One of the negroes waa pretty badly
cut up about the head and shoulders with
ttjS-DtED-Ano'.her of our bravo and
loyal soldiers, William Jenkins, a member
of Battery D. Jat W. Va. Artillery. He
died on the 9th of September last, of star
vat.on and ill treatment, at Andersonville.
Ga , while bcicg held as a prisoner of war
by the rebels. He was a kind and gener
ous husband and father. He leaves a wire
and two children to mourn his loss, and

and acquaintances. *

Among the benevolent societies present
were lodges oE Odd Fellows and M: sons,
including a colored lodge of the latter fra
ternity. Tbe pnblic and principal private
buildings on Pennsylvania avenue were
gaily decorated with flags, and every win
dow was thronged with faces to catch a
glimpse of tbe President elect.
Tbe oath to "protect and maintain tbe
constitution of tbe United States," was ad
ministered to Mr. Linooln by Chief JuBtice

New Yoke, March 4th.?Tbe Richmond
papers assume to be igoorant of Sherman's
whereabouts, but at tbe same time say he
is stuck in the mud in one of the Southern
States. The estimated force under his di
rection, inclading Qilmore's and Scbofield's,
is 60,000. Tbe excitement at Charlotte
has subsided, showing that Sherman has
moved in another direction. Nothing is
said of the contemplated junction of Scbo

desertion, and strongly suspect bim of be
ing a traitor to tbe rebel cause.
Tbo House of Rspresentatives passed
another bill to place 300,000 negroes in
the army in order to satisfy the objections
of Senators.- This bill does not guarantee
freedom to enlisted slaves, but leaves the
question of emancipation open.
The Richmond Whig of yesterday says
it is stated that Bragg has succeeded in
bringing ScboScld to a halt on North East
river, ten or fifteen miles from Wilming
ton. It was theught that Schofield would
try to effect a junction with Sherman at

weighed it down with heavy appropria

dollars, for reimbursing Uissouri for the
expenses of oalling ont and subsisting the
State Militia, and appropriating $70,000
or $80,000 to repay the money advanced

material amount inserted at the instance of
