Marriages. An "Old Kentucky" Send-Off.
The Paducah (Ky.) Daily News, of
Jan. 7th, thua "spreads itself over
the nuptials of our yonng townsman,
Will Gregg, and his bride, formerly
Miss Lizzie F. Harris, of Paducah:
The marriage of Mr. William Gregg, of Hills
boro, Ohio, and Miss Lizzie P. Harris, of this city,
at the Presbyterian church last night, was an ele
trant and joyous ovation to the two handsome and
accomplished parties immediately interested. Mr.
Oregg, formerly a citizen of Paducah and now a
denizen of the Buck Eye State, and Mis Harris,
lately Principal of the High School of this place,
met some four years since and became acqnainted.
Acquaintance ripened into friendship, and friend
ship, esteem and confidence, into love and affec
tion ; and having plighted faith to each other, they,
in the sight of Heaven and in the presence of a
"cloud of witnesses, " became as
"Two souls with hut a single thought,
Two hearts that beat as one."
The Presbyterian clinrch on Locust street was
crowded to Its utmost capacity with the fairest
and best of this community. Two score of bright
faced and gracefully formed pupils over whom Miss
Lizzie Harris was so lately the acknowledged
rueen, were present to lend their interest and at
traction to the happy hour, and to bestow their
heart-blewing upon their beloved teacher, whose
future lot for weal or for woe Is to be cast far away
from the friends and companions ot her youth and
from the scenes which she has in the last three
years done so much to adorn and beautify.
The marriage of Mr. Grigg and Miss Lizzie
Harris is emineutly "a love match," filled with the
charms of single-hearted devotion to each other.
The bride was spendidly adorned for her offering
up upon the altar of matrimony; the groom was
elegantly dressed, and the two most beau ilf ol and
intellectual bridesmaids,; Miss Ada S. Winston
and Miss Mary Calhoun, may well feci proud that
next to the happy couple they were considered
most love'y and attractive in the graceful parts
which they so faultlessly played in the Interesting
heart-drama of the evening. We must not forget
to mention the names of Messrs. Frank U. Lander
and Louis M. Eieke for their handsome aud grace
ful appearance, and their tasteful attire. In a
word, the affair was all that the most ardent friends
of the bride and the bridegroom could wish It to
lie, and the beloved and venerable old "father In
Israel." the Rev. Dr. Hendrick , may feel gratified
that he has performed the sacred ceremony of mar
riage upon a couple who commence married fife
under such favorable auspices. For nearly a
quarter of a century the life and labors of the good
old Doctor Hendrick have been a living blessiug to
this peop'e and to every one associated with him.
He has placed his love and benediction upon hun
dreds of happy couples who afterwards illustrated
in their lives and action the spirit of Ihe holy
compact in which the vows of conjugal affection
were happily consummated. He la to-day full ot
years and of honors worthily won in the career of
his blessed Master, and crowned with prey hairs
and wise beyond the common lot of men ; be is yet
full of the fires of youth aud energy, and always
ready for every good word and work. May God
ever bless bia labor In behalf of mankind, aud
grant that his prayerful blessings upon William
Gregg and his noble young wife may produce
showers of multiplied happiness, peace and con
tent to the happy nnion of the two, for whom hun
dreds in the city of Paducah wi:! ever pray. The
bride and groom departed for Hillsboro, Ohio, las
night on the 11 o'clock train. Joy go with them.
For the Nkwb mnst be handed in not later
than 9 o clock Tuesday morning.
