Married, at the residence of Judge J. A. Howard, in this place, on the evening of Wednesday, the 28th inst., by Rev. R. H. Jones, Mr. William C. Edwards to Miss Mattie (Malissa) Howard, all of Cartersville.

We were honored with an invite to attend the nuptials, which we did with greatest pleasure, in company with a large and delighted crowd of guests, and witnessed the closing scenes in the bachelor life of one in whose matrimonial welfare we have felt no little interest.  The ceremony and supper passed off handsomely and delightfully.  We were really pleased with the calmness and dignity with which the twain received the matrimonial noose, by which they united their lives, fortunes and sacred honors, and became one flesh—husband and wife.  With affections intertwined, hearts blended in one, and hand in hand, they have launched out upon the sea of life.—May no rude storm ever drag its destructive trail across their pathway, but upon an unruffled sea may their barque glide smoothly and sweetly through life, and launch its precious cargo, eventually and safely, upon the bright shores of the glory world, and there, beneath the tree of life, hard by the gushing waters of salvation, with their alliance re-sanctioned above, and with all the redeemed hosts, harps in hand, may they forever sing and shine.
