It has always been the custom to
speak of the Marriage bells, an alone mer-
ry. is a marriage always a merry occa
sion ? Has the token which knells the
parting of Mother and Daughter,
breaks up years of sweet family inter
course, and causes the severance of many
dear bonds of union on both .sides, any
more right to be called merry than when
it tolls forth the tidings of men saved of
a world to come full of joy and light, of
a haven of rest where there are no more
partiDgs ? We trow not.

never a church bell, and so strongly did

He went through Senator Tipton's

Senator went down to Lincoln and tried
to get re-elected as hard as anybody,
and would probably be a candidate

that Tipton dwelt so much on, and stated
that Mr. Dawes, leader of the House, a
