"I entirely sot my face against the
extravagant expenditure now so fash-
enable at weddings , " said a prominent
slorgyman yesterday , who was dis
cussing a recent sacrifice at the hymo-
nial altar , with a reporter of the Press.
'I certainly think that every solem
nly is duo to so sacred u rite as mar
riage , and that the occasion should be
ono of seemly rejoicing amidst the
amilios thus to boconio united. It is
the lavish display of attire on the part
of the bndeo and guests , the largo
sums wasted on floral decorations and
collations , the European honeymoon
tours which are undertaken by couples
whoso marital moans must necessitate
the closest economy these are the
natters which I consider so reprehen
sible. In all such things the fashion
ias boon sot by people in society ,
whoso wealth precluded pecuniary
considerations ; but the slavish imita
tion which has ensued frequently en
tails severe privations lo parents , and
often a load of debt on the shlouBrdo
of thonowly-woddod pair. "
While many sensible people wil
approve of the remarks made by the
reverend gentlemen , Hi era is some ex
cuse for the practice , when it is re-
inomborcd that pomp , display , ex
penditure and publ o rejoicing have
boon in all ages and in every climo.
Marrriago , whether among the early
Egyptians or ancient Haitians , or our
own Euiopean forefathers , and oven
among the aboriginal inhabi
Units of the countries now impreg
nated with civilization , have all nl
ways boon occasions of much festiv
ity , and some of the quaint procoood-
ings obsoryod by different nation
alities at various periods of llici
history , are of a very interesting do
scnption.
IIAHDAUIO CUSTOMS.
Among the barbaric nations womoi
wore always regarded as the spoils o
war , and tlio general mode of marriag
was to capluru n wife ; the rape of th
Sabines may bo given as an illustra
lion of th''s. Strange to any an imita
lion of this savage usage still exists ii
n vecy modified form in portions o
Wales. It is customary with the
peasantry for a bridegroom to assom
bio liin friends and make a sham at
tack on another party of young moi
who surround the bride aud protuiu
to be carrying her to the mountains
After much show of resistance the defenders
fenders of the lady give up the strug
glu and she is taken away in triump
by her lover. While on the subjeo
of Welch marriages it should bo addoc
that the approaching event is alway
advertised in the local papers , am
strangers alike uio invited lo bo pie
sent and contribute their quota to
ward the now household. Early Eng
lish marriages were occasions of ro
joicing. Some of the customs observe
were of a nature which would grcatl
shock the rolinoinonl of the preson
duy , but relics of such proceeding
are still to bo found in modern woii
dings. Satin favors worn be guosti
for instance , represent the sum
pieces of the bride's garters , whic
were distributed among the grooms
men and pinned on the right breasl
Itridcsmaids are the descendants o
the Saxon maidens , whoso duties wor
to disrobe the bride. The tlirowin
of old shoes was an intimation to th
bride that henceforth she had no further
thor claim on the homo she had lofi
Flowora and rico showotod at the pai
ro reminiscences of an unpleasant
iixbit which was prevalent in eastern
ountrios. The bridegroom was pelt-
d with sloncsJjy the girl friends of
! io bride ai a remonstrance against
icr leaving their ranks , and some-
imes husband and wife were severely
urt.
TIIE WEOWNO KINO.
The ring necessary to Ghrintion
mrriagcs is the mosl ancient of all
bsorvancos , and ono that in clearly
raced to hcalhcn sources. Romans ,
Greeks , Egyptians and many otlier
ncicnt nations used wedding rings ,
'hoy wcro made of iron , gold , brass
nd copper , and generally had solno
nscription inscribed upon thorn , such
s "May you live long , " "I bring
; oed fortune to the wearer. " Other
inns which have boon discovered in
nciont sepulchres have keys oncravod
pen them , evidently as an indication
f the wife's domestic authority.
\moni ; the Jews the marriage rings
vcro generally jewelled. The wed-
ing ritm of Joseph and Mary , which
as sold by n Jerusalem jeweler to
larquis of Etruria in 9)0 ! ) , was coin-
oscd of onyx or amethyst , a matter
vhich can now bo no longer satifac-
orily settled , as some fifty Catholic
luuchoB possess a ring which
s vouched to bo the only
nd original ring worn by the Divine
Mother. The Onrislian church made
lie placing of the ring on the wo-
lan's hand on imperative portion of
10 nuptial union , Init , strange to say ,
wliilo adopting the pagan custom , it
id not define the material of which
10 ring should be made , so that Homo
udicrous substances have done sor-
ice in instances where the nervous
ridegroom has forgotten to bring the
.occssary . circlet in his waistcoat
locket The church key and curtain
ings have more than once been
nought into requisition , and a _ few
cars ago a wedding was solemnized
u Boston at which the ring was a
irclo of kid cut from the bride-
room's glove. It is an error to sup-
ese that a ring containing precious
tones cannot bo used ; they
roro very fashionable in the
ilidcllo ages , and oven later. Mary ,
Queen of Scots , had three wedding
ings , two in gold and the center ono
n entire circle of diamonds. Rings
isnd to bo placed on the bride's right
land , as is still the custom in Ger-
nany. In England , a century ago ,
narriago rings , although put on the
econa finger of the loft hund at the
hurch ceremony , were afterwards
vorn on tlio thumb. The society of
TYionds are among the feT Christian
cats who dispense with this symbol of
ho marriage relation , its heathenish
> rigin being the alleged reason. Many
3uakorladioswe.ir ] them , nevertheless.
L'ho old Puritans had the saint , proj-
idiccs us the Friends , and in "Iludi-
> ras' ' ' a passage refers tc it as follows :
) ther were fur abolishing
L'hat tool of matrimony , a i ing ,
iVith which tlio unsanctifyM bridegroom
marry'd only to a tbuinu :
AH wise as rinKing of a pig
Chat used to br nk up ground and dig. )
Che bridu to nothing but her will
L'hat nulls the aftor-maniage sill.
Butler's verso gives the imprcsssion
; hat wedding-rings were worn on the
, humb at a much earlier period than
iho reign of the Georges.
With our grandparents it used to
jo Customary whenever a man mar
ried , an heiress to advertise that faol
in. the public papers. For instance
"John Brown to Miss Mary Jonti
and 20,000. " Marriage in a smock
ivas an old adage , which was observot
by widows who had incurred debt ant
wished to remarry without encumber
ing their now husbands with their pe
cuniary burdens. It was supposed i ;
a man took a wife with nothing on
put a single garment , he would be
'reed from the risk of being sued fpi
lor anto-niarrintjo debts , and within
u few years a wedding took place in
England at which the bride stood uj
at the altar to be married with noth
ing on her but a shoot wrappec
. "round her form. Marriage under
the gallows is another old law , now
obsolete , by which a murderer escapes
the death penalty if a woman
expresses her willingness to marry
liim. In No w York , in 1784 , this ac
tually occurred , but the man was subsequently
soquontly hanged for the murder o :
the woman whoso devotion saved hie
life on the previous occason. Marriage
riago by lot is still the rule amcng the
Moravians , but persons who are chosen
can rofnso each other if the choose
The only exception to the latter rule
is with missionaries , who occasionally
apnd for wives from their distant sta
lions. Some years ago a missionary
in India wrote to the Bethlahom com
munity , in this state , and having announced
nouncod the demise of his spouse , requested
quested that a second wife should be
chosen and sent out to him , and added
od that ho desired a stout , short help
mate , as his first wife was of tha
shape and stature and had loft an excellent
collent wardrobe behind her. Ho received
ceivod the dcircd person.
MAUHIAm : UKdUI.ATIONS.
Some utrango laws for rogulatiii ]
and promoting marria cB existed ii
the primitive colonies of the country
In 1005 the local authorities o
Eartham , Mass. , voted that every un
married man in the township shouli
kill six blackbirds or three crow
yearly while single , and that as a pen
ally for not obeying the order , h
should not got married until he hat
destroyed the requisite number in ar
rears.
A former tax in Maryland was iiv
shillings yearly to every bachelor possessed
sossed of 100 , and twenty shilling
on all bachelors and widowers whc
own 800. It does not appear tha
spinsters or widows were ever taxed
probably from the reason that no wo
man refuses a chance if she can help it
So much interesting matter conh
bo written about the many forms ani
customs which have been observed a
t-oiiio tune ur pluoo in tuo oelubrutiui
of the most important happenings ir
the lives of every man and woman-
marriage thai only a moro outline
can bo iivon ; in tin's article , but a fe\\
of the observances among the aborig
Inal inhabitants of North and Soutl
America are worth the telling. Ii
the majority of the North Amoricar
tribes , or the redskins , no man coulc
marry in his own tribe under ponalt )
of death. In Aztec Mexico , a youn
man consulted the oracles bofor
ho took a wife and afto
the ceremony ho always car
ried his wife homo on his back , Th
pagans of Peru had several wives , bu
the first ono was supreme over the ro
maindor. When a now wife was desired
sired the wonld-bo husband wont t
the father's ' houao and placed a pocul
( it *
ar sort of shoo on the foot of the la-
ly with whom ho was onamorod. If
ho was a virgin the shoo was of
wool , if a widow of rush. In the
nib an Islands it is customary fora
lowly-marricd pair to retire to the
woods for a honeymoon nnd pass their
imo in hunting. In Cuba husband
find wife had equal rights of divorce.
Among tlio Ottmoaquos nn old man
vas always united to a young woman
md a young man loan old woman ,
ho reason of such union being that
i f.vos supposed tlmt the discretion of
go would curb Iho impetuosity of
outh. With some South American
ndians a virgin was never chosen for
wife. After marriage the
triclesl virtue was expected in
wiyos. Squaws of all Indian natives
vhoso husbands had been killed in
war wore permitted to choose a uc-
essor among the captives reserved
or torture.
