Lately, at Shrewsbury, "Young Doctor LAMB," as he is commonly designated, but properly described F. Augustus Lamb HANDCOCK, a quack worm doctor, aged 22 years, to Miss Winifred FOULKES, of Trelydan, near Welchpool, aged 83 years. The lovely and blooming bride, being extremely deaf, caused much interruption to the ceremony, and when asked if she would take Mr. LAMB as her "wedded husband," she made no reply, when the loving bridegroom shouted out with all his strength of lungs, "Say yes! say yes!" The Rev. Mr. YARDLEY stopped him, and informed the anxious youth that the lady must answer of her own free will. The blushing damsel guessing, doubtless, as to the cause of the pause, exclaimed in most melodious tones, "Oh yes! I will! certainly I will!" The Rev. Divine, however, considered it imprudent to go on with the ceremony, as none of the lady's relatives were present to sanction the bestowal of her person on the charming worm Adonis, and it was thought advisable to send for the attorney who prepared Miss FOULKE's marriage settlements, in which she had endowed Mr. Augustus LAMB with about £20,000!! The gentleman of the law arrived, and having vouched that the marriage settlements, &c., were correctly prepared, and also that the bride was capable of executing a legal deed, the remainder of the service was proceeded with, immediately after which the happy couple, with the papa, mamma, and a brother of the fortunate Augustus, set off for Bath, where the turtle doves enjoyed the honey moon in sweet retirement.
