Lately, at the Holy Trinity Church, a couple, whose united ages amount to 140 years. After the ceremony, the bride, whose appearance bespoke very feeble health, as well as advanced years, informed the vicar that he had married her 20 years ago. "Indeed!" replied the vicar. "Yes," rejoined the old dame, "and, what is more remarkable, it was to the same man." It appeared that when she was about forty years of age she was deserted by her husband, and ten years afterwards, not having heard anything of him, married her present spouse, by whom she had several children; after which she heard of her first husband being still alive, and broke off her connection with the second; eventually she received information of the death of her first husband, and returned to the society of him whom she had married when she only supposed herself a widow, and they had since continued to live together; but not being satisfied as to the legality of their union, they had at length resolved to be again united by due course of law.—More recently, at another church in this town, a youthful couple appeared at the hymeneal altar, and during the reading of the service, on the bridegroom producing the ring, the bride expectant was found to be in a profound sleep.—Hull Advertiser.
