NO. 24.
CLtatcxL HatviTr. A minister of "
the Oosple, an old acquaintance of ours,
a hard shall Baptist, who reside! In Ne
brasba Territory, was recently called up
on to unite a couple living in Atchison
county, in this State, in the holy bonds of
wedlock whioh he performed in a manner 1
to brief and entirely new that we think it 1
worthy of record. Arriving at the place ...
appointed for the ceremony, he waited un
til the guests ceased coining when he en
qu.'rod of ihe hoii 1 '
"Are all here yoti expect," and being '
answered in tho allirmuiive, he turned :
to the couple toon to be made happy, by , .'
Hyinn:al ties, with
" Voting folks, stand up. Do you want
to b in irried I" The reply was einphat "
ic Yes " " Th 'n " he continued, " jino 1
hands." The injunction was performed. ,
aud without further ceremony he proceed
ed, " I pronounce you man and wife 5
salute the bride." ' ' -i
Tht aiae minister performed a like aer -vice
a few yean ago, in Holt county, (of
another couple. The ceremony was ft,
little varied yet not less novel or interest
injj. After bidding the parties Mjlne
hands, he commenced with the groom, as
follow:- .Mr. do you swear before Al
mighty God that you are willing to marry
Miss ? He then put the same question,,
to the bride, and the answer of both being '
satisfactory, he said, " then I pronounce '
you married." These forms, it will be :
perceived, differ a little from the "good.!
old way" clereical gentlemen usually do )
these things, yet we are not aura but what
they are improvements, and are certainly'

In the Annual Report of the 3uperin '

ing argument against tbe marriage of
cousins 1
From ' ten to twenty per cent, of deaf .
mutes are the children of cousins. It is
greatly to be regretted that the law for '
bid i tax the marriage of firet cousin 1' ' dial'
not pass the recent' Legislature. r These 1
marr.agesare a violation nf the laws of noc
ture, as ia evidenced by the afflictions (
visited in almost every case upon their off,
sprin; in blin In si, d mfn?s and idiocy '
and ought to be a violation of human laws .

right to protect itself againit these ill-sur
red matches, whose offspring it has Yo
sustain, too frequently for life. It may '
be hoped that this important aubject wiut
not eeaps the action of our legislators ,
mioy years lonjer. It is confidently be ,
lieved that by forbidding marriages of
thi kin !, ami by proper attention and care
of infant! liboring und-r the diseaset
stated, the number of deaf mules in the.
community might bo diminished one half .
