And it was astonishing to see how quickly they overcame the intervening distance. Scarcely a pause, and back they came, stringing along like a herd of sheep? the more lubberly bringing up the rear, and exerting themselves almost to death in the vain endeavor to keep up with the more aotive, who ran along with ease. ' What's the fuss ?" shouted those who bad tarried at the house, s<> soon as their curious friends had arrived within apeaking distance. Oh?nothiu ?much," responded the leader of tha Hook, l?atwoen his rapid respirations, "they disagreed?about the bosses?someway, and then they?concluded to run it?afoot." All right, tbea. No fight, no fun, but a foot race. The -bottleholders'Mowered their pole, tha hat-dropper elevated his cap?"one, two. three!" down, and here they come. The race was a laughable one. Buck Bradley, treat, stranain*. rawboned fallow, as ugly as sin, and almost u large, won It, and possessessed himself of to* bottle. This, aa the reader rnuat understand, mad* him groomsman, and placed him a notch a bore all preeent, tare the bridegroom himself; and now hia next doty was to repair to the honie ana select from among the many anxious candidates a bridesmaid. Off he went, still puffing and blowing from the effects of the race. "Come on, all o' ye !" was soon proclaimed frona the doer, and on we all vent, fer the critical moment had arrived. On entering the house, I saw that Miss Bailie and one Tom West were sitting side by side, looking very oouical and restless; a&d standing behind them were Bock Bradley and his ribboned end bachelorbuttoned bottle, and betide theee was a blushing beauty, who looked for ell the world as if she had jnst, and contrary to her expectations, been choeen bridesmaid- Silence, awfnlly profound, with tne exception of a few snigglee and twitters in different parts of the room, reigned over the seene for the space of fire minutes, when 8qnire Haines got up and said "Arise to your feet." Tom West and Bailie obeyed the mandate. "Mr. Thomas West, yon take thia here woman to be your lawful wife?" "YM," itid Tom. |L"k?iu Sal lit Uainos, you take this fallsr?no?aho*! this MM holt of jour hand to be your hueband 7" Yet, sir?ahem !" "I pronounce you nu and wife?laka your aeaU." At this juncture NntOMruopud whispered a word in tbo Squire's M?i whereupon ho said : "Git op agin a minute." They roao liko tho Yankoo who bad sat dowa oa aa air-tight store believing It waa a roods box, and tha Squire want aa : "If tha's aay bpro praaont who knows aay thin* why thaoa two shouldn't ba aarriad, let 'on say ao; If not, lot 'am aUors kaop tbo psaos. That's all, I believe." ... .. -w ?u? iuoi uoI was 4?IIMJ oauic Haines And be it farther known that I immediately considered myself invited to be present at the marriage of Mr. Martin, the Minister, to Miss Sallie aforesaid; and that I as quickly resolved to accept. True, my rig bore but little semblance to a -wedding garment;" still it was in the fashion, and when a man ii in the fashion he need care for nothing else. A Chinaman's dress provokes eur laughter in this country, yet tnere is nothing ludicrous about it in China. Evening eame, and after brushing up to the beet advantage, and down to tne best advantage, I went. On arriving at the ciquire's I was startled to find myself almost too late, for a large number of people were gathered about the house, and ont in the road, and the riuers in contMt for the bottle, were alreadv uo. The " hot?i? UUaa" up, also, and I may as wall tall jou how they were op. Two stumps, from whieh traas had baan chopped, stood, one on aithar side of ,the road, and upon these ware poised the officers in quaation, holding across the way, and at arm's length above thair haads, a tola from which, at a point oantral betwaan them, dangled tha bottla. It wajlavishly decorated in ribbons and strings of uried ''bachelor's buttons," or baohelor's dried "buttons," just as you please, while within it sparklad and leaped in unison to tha pulsations of the "holders," about one quart of common whisky.

But tbare was plenty of time and plenty to eat. tunquently we all had our fill of the rery beet the ooantry afforded, loftf before leaving the premises. When "night had hung her curUins up, and pinned then with star," the guests, with a very few exceptiona, had scattered off to their respective homes.
