AYe have a justice of the peace in
this city that holds the opinion that a
matrimonial knot if tied on a Sunday
will not stick before the courts, and
last Sunday refused to marry a couple
until after twelve o'clock at night. Of
course if it is not binding for a justice
to marry people on a Sunday, the knot
must be equally lose if tied by a minis
ter, on that day, and as a great many
had that ceremony performed on the
day above named, the question with
them naturally arises "are we married
at all?'*

Section 2. of the law, is of the most
importance to the people in this vicini
ty, and reads as follows: '-All publi

required by law to be made in a news

The County Commissioners in
their meeting last week confined
themselves exclusively to examining
and passing upon seed grain applica
tions. Of the 344 applications that
were made, 298 were allowed, aggregat
ing 9,977 bus. of wheat, and 2,502 bus.of
oats. Whole number of acres which
the successful applicants have for
seeding are 12,182. The highest
number of bushels of wheat allowed
to any one applicant was 50.
Since the number total of bushels al
lowed, exceeds the number of bushels
estimated for this county by the Legis
lative Grasshopper Committee some 4,
129, we would advise applicants not to
rely too much on receiving the full
amount allowed them, as the niim*
ber total will have to be materially cut
down unless some of the counties drop
far below the Committee's estimate.
The County Commissioners will meet
again Monday, March the 18th, and
will then re-adjust the allowance

Editor Review-
in perusing the columns of your interesting pa
per of March 6th, I miss the ''Golden Gate corres
pondent," and notice your query, "What
lias become of F. M. Scrobbs?" That is. a question
every one in the neighborhood is asking, find no
one seems able to answer satisfactorily- But it is
generaly supposed that he has either gone in search
of his predecessor "Anon," or that the hatchet
has been recovered and that hopoor lellow has
iallen a victim of that murderous-weapon, as \\a
currently reported that his illustrations predeces
sor did belore him.
Is ow, Mr. Editor, I fear you will be unable to pro
cure another correspondent but, should you be so
I hope that whoever undertakes the tank

The masquerade season is at last over,
and we know of at least one person who
is glad of it, as the way he was taken
"in" at the last masquerade ball at
Turner hall, was a "leetle" too much
for him.
It seems that during the month of
February Cupid played the duce with
the "chap" in question. Sentimental
valentines flew thick and fast, of which
he was the recipient of a goodly num
ber. Of course he was not idle all this
time, but belonged for an opportunity
to express his emotions verbally to the
fair sender of those that he received.
He waited long and patiently,
but in vain. At last, being in a des
perate state of mind, he repaired to
Turner hall on the evening in question
expecting to find tfce object of his
longing in attendance at the ball. He
danced and promenaded with nearly
every lady in the hall, in the vain hope
of finding out which was the right one.
At last, perserverance seemed to be
rewarded, and he led her to a seat and
began to pour out his lamentations, his
love, etc., winding up with a wish
that they might never again be torn
asunder. By this time the evening
was quite far advanced, and the order
for unmasking was given. The lady,
being fond of a joke, was no way back
ward in pulling off the mask that had
hitherto veiled her face. The feelings of
that "cavalier" may better be imagined
than expressed, when he beheld that he
had been bestowing his attentions to a
married lady and he shot out of that
hall like a cannon ball out of on of
