Marriage in High Life.

Married, in Bartow county jail, by Rev. John P. Anderson, on yesterday, Mr. THOMAS TEAGUE and Miss GEORGIA DUNHAM, both highly colored and of this county.

Although there were no cards, the ceremony was attended by a crowd of friends.  The groom is an attaché of Anderson’s livery stable, and was deposited in jail, together with the bride, yesterday morning, because the ceremony did not occur earlier.  The groom was arrayed in a pair of Montgomery’s embrace suspenders and a jail blanket, while the lovely bride smiled behind a palm leaf fan.  The bride was given away by Buffalo Bill Anderson.  The attendants were Mr. Bill Puckett and Miss Aaron Collins, Mr. Vest Harwell and Miss Jimmie Wilkinson, whose toilets were gotten up as well as short notice and the weather would permit.  The presents were numerous and costly and the crowd filed out to the joyous peals of a wedding march from an organ in the mouth of one of the inmates.
