A lady and gentleman, who had never seen each other, met by accident at Pailing next the sea, on Saturday evening, and, after an acquaintance of about two hours, marriage was proposed; to this the lady had no particular objection. The following morning (Sunday) the parties proceeded to the neighbouring village church, for the purpose of attending the hymeneal altar, but very unfortunately the resident clergyman had just left home to do duties at another church; no alternative remained but to wait, although impatiently, till Monday, when they were joined together in holy matrimony.— Norwich Mercury.
 
Last week, in the marriage of a couple from Kingstown, near this city, at Rockliffe, inserted in this paper, the difference in the age of the parties was maliciously stated by the writer to be upwards of 40 years, whilst it amounted to only three. The letter is dated Kingstown, and the clumsy wit, we believe, known.
