At the St. James hotel, on last Thursday evening, the 28th ult., by the Rev. Theo E, Smith, Miss Sallie, daughter of Maj. L. C. Hoss, was married to Mr. A. C. Williams, Jr. The affair was quiet, only the relatives and a few friends of the contracting parties being present. After the beautiful ceremony and congratulations the party was escorted to the dining hall where a bountiful repast awaited them. The bride is one of our most modest and estimable young ladies, one, who to meet, was certain to command admiration, and all that were so fortunate as to meet her found in her every quality of perfect womanhood. The groom is one of our sober, industrious young business men, who will provide everything that is necessary for a happy home. He has won a prize and justly feels gratified over his good luck. We extend to both Mr. Williams and Miss Sallie our heartiest congratulations and trust that the star of happiness which now so brightly illuminates their pathway may never be overshadowed by the clouds of adversity; but when sorrow and disappointment come upon them, as come they do to all, may they, with the eye of faith and hope, be enabled to pierce its dark and murky folds, and see that “behind the cloud is the sun still shining.” May their most sanguine dreams of joys to come be more than realized. May they be all in all to each other; and finally may they land on the shores of eternal rest, where all is joy and peace.
