Married, On Tuesday morning, the 26th instant, at the residence of Mr. J. J. Calhoun, of this city, Capt. John Postell, vice-president and general manager of the East and West Railroad of Alabama, and Mrs. K. L. Maxwell, of Alabama, were united in the holy bonds of wedlock Rev. J. S. Hillhouse officiating.  There were no cards – only the family of Mr. Calhoun being present.  The captain took his friends by surprise, all thinking that he had probably gotten over the possibility of such an event, but they all wish him the full measure of unalloyed happiness in his new sphere.  He is a man among men, largely identified with the best interests of this immediate section, a man greatly liked by all who know him and whom all honor.  The bride comes from an old and distinguished Alabama family, and is highly spoken of.  Though a comparative stranger in our midst, she will be made to feel that she has cast her lot among the most sociable of people, and Cartersville society will receive a pleasant and valuable acquisition.  A lady of fine accomplishments, rare conversational powers, she is a fitting companion for such a progressive and clever gentleman as Captain Postell. The Courant-American flings the historical old shoe and wafts its best wishes towards the happy pair.
