stationed a ruard around a house with order* to let bo one enter. He then attempted to uinaie the woman of the bouse, who was alone.

The sergeant, foi led in his attempt, ordered the busband to be sbct, and the order was carried out bv one of tbe guards, who kilted Him. Tbe citizens arrived and fought tbe soldiers, wounding sad capturing tbe tqu&d. They are now in the ban da of tbe civil antborities.

A Slow Markiauk Ubrbmomt.?Recently, not many miles distant from Washington, a couple whom we will ladlc&te as Mr. J and Miss H , were to be married, and tbe somewhat slow-going Elder was called upon to perform the ceremony. Tbe parties all being ready, tbe Elder proceeded as follows -.? Gentlemen and ladies, 1 hold in my hand authority from the State of Maryland to nmte Mr. J and Miss H in the bonds of matrimony. Doubtless you all expect some sort of ceremony this evening, but my voice is weak, my health is bad, and I have had disease of the throat for a year or more. Different churches have different forms, and different people have different forms; for my part, 1 have no form. 1 do not remember any form. In some countries it is not so easy to get married asi* this once free and happy country: and in some States tbey marry without a license. In some countries it is reqaired that the marriage shall take place at the hour of midnight; just as tbe clock strikes twelve tbe company take their lamps and go forth to meet the bridegroom, and then they all go into tbe hour* and the door is shut, and no one Is allowed to enter In afterwaros. Yea. my friends, tbe door is shut, and if yon come then yon may cry yon eyas ont, and you may wear yonr knees ont praying, but you'll never get In, foi the door is shut. But this is not tbe case in our once free and happy conuiry. As 1 said before, my lungs are weak, and I must make tbe ceremony as short as possible. My friends. It gives me much pleasure to see a young and loving couple like this, with their hearts united in the bonds of affection, ceme to be joined in marriage; and yon must recollect my yonng friends tbat yon cannot live together always?one ot you will be taken by the cold, icy fingers of death and laid in the dark and narrow grave, and the other will be left to weep over the dear remains. Marriage is an old institution: it is spoken of In the first part of tbe Bible. It is an old institution: it is an honorable institution: it is a moral institution. All of yon like it, and yon >11 encourage it?all of the young people like it. The old wonld like to be young again that tbey might once more feel the influence of Cupid's darts. Come on. *11 ef yon. 1 do not remember nay ceremony, but 1 reckon 1 know enough to join these two together. 1 suppose before 1 preceed 1 must ask the hswnl questions. Is there any one present mho knows nay j?st cause why Mr. J. and Miss 11. may not lawfaily be joined in the bonds of matrimony I (After a pause.) No one says anything, so I suppose there is no reason. Mr. J. and Miss H., wilt yon please give yonr right hand! Mr J., will you take the lady whose hand yon held to be yonr lawful aad wedded wifrl Will you love, cherish, and protect her ( "Yes, air." Miss ,will yon take the gentleman whose right haad you bold to be yonr lawful and wedded husband t Will yon love, honor, and obey him In nil his reasoa*ble requests 1 "1 Will." i now pronounce yon husband aad wife, man and wire, or man and bia helpmate, whieh 1 much prefer." The ceremony was concluded with a long prayer, in which he prayed Cor all mankind, collectively aad iadividually, aad at tae ead the contracting parties aad the gnests joined with considerable hearttaess la the "Amen." o A Roron Y oitu.?Christmas night.
