MARRIED, at the residence of Col. Lewis Tumlin, in Cartersville, this morning at 9 o’clock, by Rev. R. B. Headden, Mr. F. P. GRAY, a promising young lawyer of Atlanta, and son to Col. Jno. Gray, of Adairsville, to Miss CORA TUMLIN.  The attendants were Mr. Houser, of Fort Valley, and Miss Lula Peacock, and Mr. Henry Tumlin and Miss Lena Williford, all of Bartow.  The ceremony was original, beautiful and impressive, and just such as Mr. Headden is so well qualified to make.  Col. Tumlin, with his accustomed generosity and urbanity had provided the comforts and luxuries suitable to the occasion with lavish abundance, and the party in attendance knew full well how to enjoy themselves, which they did to their fullest extent.  The occasion was one of happiness and pleasure, and long to be remembered.

The handsome and fortunate couple (for the choice is mutually a good one), with their attendants, left for Atlanta, on the 11 o’clock train this morning.  May God bless them, and give them a long life of happiness and plenty!
