MARRIED, on the evening of the 5th instant, at the residence of Col J. J. Howard, by the Rev. R. B. Headden, Mr. THOS. B. CABANISS, of Forsyth, Ga., to Miss MARY E. HOWARD, and at the same time and place, by the same, Mr. HERMON M. CLAYTON, of Cartersville, GA., to Miss CONSTANCE V. HOWARD, both daughters of Col. J. J. Howard of this place.

The STANDARD & EXPRESS office crew acknowledge the reception of a magnificent cake, adorned after the similitude of a bride, for which the happy donors will please accept our unfeigned thanks and heartiest congratulations.

The wedding, we learn, was a splendid affair –the ceremony brief, chaste and impressive, the array of smiling faces and sparking eyes unsurpassed, a perfect feast of social convivialities and conjugal felicity, together with a bountifully spread board of all that is provoking to the appetite and palatable to the taste, made up the bill of fare for the evening.

May the days of the happy couples be unclouded by adversity and end only in the peace of a blissful eternity.
