The happy couple were preceded to the church by a blind fiddler, led by his wife, and accompanied by eight or ten couple of the same fraternity. The church bells rang a merry peal, resounding with the shouts of hundreds ot little urchins and others who had come far and near to witness the procession. The parties adjourned to a neighbouring public-house, where the father of the bride (Jossy SWALE), a well-known character in all the northern counties, led off the dance, which was kept up the greatest part of the day. The happy couple afterwards retired from public life to green lanes and shady groves, to spend the honey moon.
